    I'm most excited about the 6 inch Rebel Black Series Ahsoka prototype that was revealed.

    Yeah, that one is going to be very popular once it hits stores.

    In the meantime here are the 3.75" (animated) versions of both Ahsoka and Darth Vader based on the season finale of Rebels:

    I took some photos of my collection, at least what I've bought over the past few years.

    I saw the new Flash, Deadshot & Dark Archer action figures at Hasting's last nigh. If they were't $25 a pop, I'd have grabbed 'em to get my DC/CW collection goin'...I like the look of the new Flash figure.

    I don't have this one. I've seen the figure on the secondary market but they almost always ask way too much for him.

    I got the Age of Ultron Scarlet Witch today. She's not the best quality figure (5 POA), but it's probably all we'll get. Still hoping a Quicksilver is planned, too.

    Cap's Kooky Quartet is missing one member!

    All of my Avengers figures, whether they're MCU or not (and I still hope that Black Knight and Captain Britain end up in the MCU someday...):

    My Jazware Sonic Colors 5 inch sonic figure came finally. And I had to give him a proper accessory since he didn't come with any.

    I'm slowly completing my CW Stunticon team, so I hope to have the last two members by next week. Maybe I'll have some time to do some more pics before my upcoming trips in May. :)

    Sonic the Hedgehog on Endor? That's what the Rebels really needed to get through the doors of and inside the Imperial bunker! :)

    Haha yeah, but I don't think Chewie could have flown the Imperial Shuttle "Casual" enough to get by. :rommie:

    ^Toys of a sort, I suppose. :techman:

    A new Figuarts Dragon Ball Z figure is always cause for celebration. The gentle giant, Android 16 joins the ranks.

    He sports the same great articulation and interchangeable parts we've come to expect:

    So it's true, Filoni threw Weisman off the show for his OC.

    Whatever Filoni's been doing lately behind the scenes on Rebels I'm liking it. A lot.

    Jedi Temple Archives is now reporting a rumor - though it's a very strong one supported by some fellow collectors who claim to have heard some things - that the super-articulated, premium 3.75" figures aimed more at adult collectors may become a retailer exclusive inside the United States while the cheaper, easier-to-produce 5-POA figures in the same scale would continue to be sold at all the major retail chains. Many are speculating that this exclusive retailer could be Toys "R" Us.

    Mind you this is just a rumor as of right now and should be taken with a huge grain of salt, but it's triggering a lot of heated debate and conjecture about Hasbro's plans for super articulation in the 3.75" line with the blizzard of new toys from The Force Awakens launching this fall and likely containing a lot of simpler 5-POA figures along the lines of the current Rebels characters in stores.

    Found the latest Black Series wave at Wal-Mart. I passed on the Stormtrooper Han for now, but I did grab Bossk:

    Nice! How easy is your copy's jaw to move up and down? Some collectors have been reporting that their copies are a little stiff and you can't get much motion out of his jaw depending on which Bossk you happened to purchase.
