    Oh ok. I haven't been there in a while!

    I was thinking of opening some of my 6 inch Black series figures.

    Which ones? Post some pics of your figures if you do decide to open and display some of them!

    Yep. Poor Black Knight lost an arm and was too smashed to find it again. :p

    Tony really needs to stop sharing his expensive booze with the rest of the gang.

    I'll try to upload a bigger pic. The sandtrooper who lost the droids defected and is now helping Leia by carrying her away from Jabba. That actually worked out pretty well, I was able to convincingly make her look helpless. There are a few 70's figures here, including Lando and the droids, and Boba Fett. I have a Vader from the 70's somewhere. I love the jawa and the mouse droid (the mouse droid is from the 90's) ;)

    received my first Ultra Act figure today. Ultraman Mebius. he's pretty awesome. the only bad things i have to say are that his chest piece falls off easily and you simply can not do the straight arm pose seen on the box.

    The confirmation of the Han Solo standalone movie for 2018? Yep, it's exciting news! I hope they cast somebody who can both act and remind people of 1970s Harrison Ford. :)

    Pics are coming in from SDCC.

    Here's some from Diamond Select's upcoming Ghostbusters line. For the lazy, the non-GB figs they have on display are Walter Peck, Janine, Dana as the Gatekeeper, Slimer, and the terror dogs. All of the likeness are excellent, and very much improved over Mattel's. The Slimer figure very much fits Ray's initial description of him as a "disgusting blob". My only two nitpicks are that Janine's glasses (glasses that are molded separately always look wrong on the figure), and the fact that The Gatekeeper looks more like Vigo than Dana. :lol:

    DC Collectibles - Includes figures from Arrow, The Flash, Arkham Knight, Batman vs Superman, Batman TAS, and of course the comics.

    Batman vs Superman from Mattel
    - There are also movie props pictures on the next page

    Oh, and this little thing will be displayed at Comic Con, too. :eek:

    Information gleaned from the buildup to Comic-Con tells us that the Ahsoka/Darth Vader 2-pack from the Mission Series line (3.75") will hit store pegs in September with the launch of the new movie's toys and will retail for $14.99, a four- or five-dollar increase in the price of the Mission Series 2-packs over the current releases in the Rebels-themed packaging.

    Not exactly an action figure but at Spencers they had items on clearance including a set of 4 Star Wars pint glasses (Vader, Stormtrooper, Boba Fett, and Yoda) for $5 all four.

    Here's some video an SDCC attendee took of Hot Toys' Star Wars display, which includes the Falcon cockpit and the previously unannounced TIE Fighter, both of which are to scale with the 1/6 figures.

    Just imagine what the prices will be on those...

    Revelations for TFs was massive disappointing.

    Other than Victorion, there was absolutely nothing new other than the existence of Scattershot (with no Technobots!) and that there will be no beast combiners or anything celebrating the anniversary of BW other than MP Beast Convoy by Takara.

    And here is Victorion

    [​IMG]

    Her weapon is from the G1 episode Cosmic Rust since her fan voted origin is a team female combiner from the sea of Rust. Her molds consist of 1 Hot Spot, 1 Hasbro Groove, 2 Alpha Bravos, 1 Breakdown and 1 Dead End.

    I actually don't mind Victorion's combined form too much, but I have to say the team looks pretty... bleegh. That's an awful color scheme. :p
