    Not really "action" figures, per se, but does anyone remember M.U.S.C.L.E. figures?

    They're back, and they've expanded their line to other franchises, including Aliens:

    Got the Marvel Legends Scarlet Spider / SP//DR Wave in the mail today. One more figure, House of M Spider-Man, and I'll have the complete BAF.

    Certainly an interesting choice.... would probably have been a big hit in the original line. :rommie:

    Oh, yeah... I recall an "Ashens" video reviewing Alien franchise M.U.S.C.L.E. figurines.

    For those wondering, "Ashens" usually reviews "tat" from PoundLand shops upon a natty old brown couch. Ashens himself could serve as a celebrity stand-in for Simon Pegg and is arguably just as clever and charming as the movie actor.

    So, this happened:

    Preorders sold out within hours on HasbroPulse.com (the successor to HasbroToyShop.com). It'll be available eventually at GameStop.

    I'm...torn. On the one hand, it's cool. On the other, $40 to $50 depending on where you order it from is a lot for a Voyager sized figure, especially one that's a retool (albeit an extensive one) of a previous mold. I may just wait until they hit brick and mortar and see what I think of it.

    That, however, does give hope to the possibility that a Transformer figure based on the Star Trek-Transformers crossover comics can be made with a U.S.S. Enterprise Transformer hitting the market.

    Alfred's fight with Tabitha from Gotham episode 2x10 is another favorite of mine. Sadly there is no Tabitha figure so Vala from "Stargate SG-1" is standing in for her. She borrowed the whip from Indiana Jones.

    According to a report I read on Facebook the first shipments of the Vintage Collection 3.75"-scale Jabba's Sail Barge(The Khetanna) are supposed to leave the Hasbro warehouses today(the 4th of March). If anybody here ordered one then they should be on their way before long!

    I found the Target exclusive Captain Marvel (Starforce) Marvel Legends action figure this afternoon!

    This thing has the mohawk helmet head, an unmasked Vers head, and a Dr. Minerva head (plus a scarf), along with alternate hands, a space rifle, and a satchel thing. Holy crap that's a lot of accessories!

    Whereas the only Alita items (about which I know) are high priced stuff like SideShow Collectables, nothing like action figures, at least none that can be found in places like Wally World.

    Sometimes you need an old fashioned tool to get the job done.
    Scotty inherited this ancient toolbox from his grandfather. Now let's see what's under the hull?

    That is possibly the best likeness I've ever seen of ANY of those actors.
