    Mine is pretty stiff, but I think it's the design of the neck that is limiting the motion more than the actual joint. The collar comes up really high, and doesn't give much room.

    I haven't found Bossk or Stormtrooper Han just yet. They're making the rounds but if they hit my area stores they sold out before I got to see them. 6" figures past the Yoda Wave are scarce or nonexistent around here, and those I've seen have been at Walgreens.

    In other news: the first carded images of 3.75" Mosep Binneed, Princess Leia in Boushh Disguise and the new Jawa 2-pack. These are the European cardbacks, as the U.S. versions will be on English-only cards or multilingual similar to recent Rebels figures.

    Found a Pegasus Beanie Baby while cleaning today. The Black Knight likes it.

    If they made a movie of that we'd watch it.

    You know we would.

    One reason I want the Black Knight in the MCU is for his horse. It would be fun to see a winged horse fighting alongside Iron Man. :)

    Tony: "What on earth is that?! Thor's gotta be responsible for this. He's the only one weird enough.

    Sorry, Bruce, but you know it's true."

    It's a good value pack for those who don't want to pick up each figure separately, plus the 12" Shadow Stormtrooper is available nowhere else. This is also the only way to get the 12" Kanan and Inquisitor without paying higher individual prices for their separate (Deluxe) packages that come with more accessories. Good score!

    I got some goodies today- the Marvel Collectors Corps Funko pack for Age of Ultron. A Hulkbuster Funko Pop! and an Ultron Dorbz.

    Iron Man tries to convince the Avengers that this Ultron is friendly and just wants to be loved. They're not buying it. :p

    Oh, yeah, Hulk isn't happy, either. :evil:

    Cool! Congratulations on your new additions! :)

    As for myself I found another Rebels Stormtrooper on clearance at Target for a little over $4 and grabbed it. In a time when Toys "R" Us is selling the same Stormtrooper by himself for a whopping $9.99 it's great that other chains are keeping their prices down or even putting some of their new and recent figures on clearance.

    Wave 8 of the Black Series (3.75") goes up for pre-order in a few days and this may be the very last wave assortment of Black Series figures before Episode VII merchandise officially launches later this year. Wave 8 includes the following new figures, all but one from the Original Trilogy:

    Han Solo in Carbonite (based on The Empire Strikes Back)
    Princess Leia in Boushh Disguise
    Mosep Binneed (from Mos Eisley)
    Jawas (all-new 2-pack)
    Jon "Dutch" Vander (Y-Wing Pilot)
    Commander Thorn (realistic version of the Clone character from The Clone Wars)

    Those look cool! Is that Godzilla actually from 1985 or is it a more recent figure and just based on his appearance in the '85 movie?

    I posted this in The force Awakens thread in sci fi, but it also belongs here
    being reported that the toy line for The Force Awakens will hit full force early September. Be sure to buy your BB-8s.

    In the meantime, a few products have come out.

    Best of all is the new Vanity Fair cover. It actually looks like Ford is enjoying himself!

    Ok yes I collect uh not on the same level as most but I collect mainly Star Trek. And I do this well for an odd reason. I use them to make comics not very good ones more for my fun and relaxation. I used to draw but had an accident at work put my hand were it shouldn’t have been. It still works but not good enough for drawing anymore.
    I had been collecting them off and on since I was a teenager and saw on another Star Trek site I’m on someone using them so I gave it a go.
    I mainly collect the 6” figures. The best size for me. Get most of them from the US hard to get figures over here down under some places.

    If you have any images and photos of what you collect that you'd like to post we'd love to see them! :)

    I like the design and I guess Kylo Ren is going to be the character on the packaging, which make sense.

    I still think SDCC is the logical time for us to get our first look at various things, including I assume the Black Series.
