    :guffaw::guffaw::guffaw: That's one action figure head that SHOULD be able to come off.

    I can't speak for the Dark Horse statue, but I know the Funko Legacy figure's head is most certainly.

    More new 3.75" figures are being announced over at the collecting sites! Until Hasbro officially confirms these take them with a grain of salt, but according to reliable collecting sources these are definite (or close to it):

    There's been at least one Star Wars action figure where the head is removable and attaches by means of a tiny magnet. It's a Tusken Raider (Sand People) based on Attack of the Clones and the sequence wherein Anakin massacres and decapitates the entire village of Tuskens after his mother dies in their captivity.

    ^ I'm sure there have been calls by some for a Jedi younglings massacre play-set since the prequel trilogy came out. ;)

    No doubt. :lol:

    They've attempted to keep the gore factor to a minimum in recent years. They did a Mustafar / "Crispy" Anakin figure in 2005 that had him dismembered, ripped up and burnt, but they didn't go as far as they could have because it was a mass retail action figure at least partially aimed at kids.

    :lol:

    I can see why they would refrain from bringing out more figures with such graphic levels of detail :lol:

    Yep. "Arena Battle" Jango from 2002. Some might complain there's no visible blood nor gore on that figure, but there was no visible blood nor gore when Mace Windu decapitates Jango in the film.

    Yep. Ponda Baba ("Walrus Man") in the Cantina was the only lightsaber victim who bled, at least on the big screen.

    This isn't specifically action figure related, but it's toy related. I couldn't help giggling at the description of #6 on this list, because the Anti-Terrorism Super Gun is such a classically cheap toy and because it's funny to picture a hermit crab shop selling them. :lol: If I have an excuse to visit Jersey, I'll need to visit Wildwood.

    I finally bought the Greg Capullo Nightwing at my LCS. Simply awesome. I would have bought Batman too but they had one left, and he had a spotchy paint job around his chest and symbol so I passed. I'll just get him another time, also will pick up the Capullo Riddler at some point in the next couple of weeks as well.

    In addition to Boba Fett, there's also an exclusive Agent Venom figure from the Marvel Legends Spider-Man line, and a variant of Tyrion Lannister from Funko's Game of Thrones line. Yeesh, what's up with Walgreens getting all of these exclusives all of a sudden?

    Apparently the Wallgreens "Agent Venom" Figure is sold out.
