    Picked up Capullo series Riddler which is outstanding!! Unfortunately the cane is a bit bent in the box. Also picked up Marvel Legends Infinite Series Wolverine which I assume is based on "Wolverine and the X-Men" since he resembles Nick Bradshaw's rendition of Logan with the mask off. Except for a couple paint splotches he looks fantastic!

    Went ahead and picked up the Toys 'R' Us-exclusive multipack of Star Wars: Rebels action figures containing Kanan Jarrus, Ezra Bridger and a unique Holographic Obi-Wan Kenobi. They didn't have any other Rebels figures on the pegs (no retail chain in America has yet received the regular, single-carded or Mission Series two-pack figures from Rebels but they're slowly appearing in other countries overseas so they should hit domestic retail pegs pretty soon). The Holographic Obi-Wan has the most primitive articulation of the three figures but he's the coolest and most interesting.

    The collecting site Rebelscum.com is now reporting that the first wave assortment of Star Wars: Rebels action figures and the repacks of recent 5-POA movie figures on Rebels-themed cardbacks have just been found at a Disney Store up in British Columbia, so Rebels figures have now been spotted at retail in North America.

    Apparently, between Avengers and Age of Ultron, Hawkeye bought a farm. So Clint is getting his tools ready...

    It's already been done!

    IRRC, the painting was the old farmer and his daughter.

    I wish I knew of any action figures that carry tiny pitchforks but can't think of any. There might be some farmer dolls or toys out there with pitchfork accessories but I don't know if they'd look semi-realistic or cartoonish.

    Hobby Lobby is a good place to find realistic miniature accessories for Action figures. I'll take a picture of my motherload tomorrow when I have good lighting. :)

    Okay, here is Avenging Gothic. It's a rake, not a pitchfork, but it's the best I could do. :p

    Funko Loki is way too adorable to be a threatening villain!

    I stumbled on this and found it highly amusing. They don't make toys like the old days anymore... :lol:
