    That Jeff Goldblum sculpt is ahead of anything that's been made by competing companies for the Jurassic Park figure lines.

    ^Ive seen some head-sculpts that render the figures unrecognizable. Is it Chewbacca or Kirby? Who knows? Enjoy! :rommie:

    I’m sorry, how frustrating! I do sometimes understand feeling too thinly spread over social media/teh interwebs.
    Jenga is far more my speed than Kal-toh, I’m sure!

    It is a good look, no doubt. Haven't bought any of the Jurassic Park figures.

    I got my new Marvel Legends Captain America delivered from Wal Mart the other day. I haven't opened it yet, though. The box is set up to look like the one John Walker signed in the second episode of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier on Disney+.

    A superior figure to the U.S. Agent using a lot of the same mold in the recent Disney+ Wave.

    I like that this Walker figure includes a shield and unmasked head.

    It is. I wasn't aware of this new Amber line at all, a friend posted a picture with him on Instagram and that's how I found out.
    I have no idea though why I keep buying the line. Maybe I felt Ian Malcolm might be lonely? I do like the movie, but I am not such a huge dedicated fan. They just suck me always in with the funny and weird figures they do!

    Here's Dennis Nedry and the Dilophosaurus

    And yesterday I got John Raymond Arnold. The guy where we only found an arm at the end. He comes with a computer, headset and the severed arm. How could I not get this?

    I still buy some of the new Star Wars Vintage figures when I can whenever the price is right and not jacked up by scalpers.

    years ago I used to find a good amount of Star Wars figures in stores when 30th Anniversary, Saga Collection and Legacy Collection had enough figures on the pegs.

    nowadays you have to order new stuff off of sites like amazon or toy sites like Big Bad Toystore or dorkside or whatever

    Then if iim not shopping for clothes or food then I might splurge on a NECA horror movie icon character like Freddy or Jason or save up to get some a little spendy like the recent NECA Back to the Future figures or Super Shredder. Dunno why everyone has to get a Super Shredder figure anyway since he doesnt last long in the old movie anyway

    Opened up my newest Captain America action figure!

    Captain America and US Agent

    Its the same figure, just with different paint jobs and accessories. Captain America has a shield and unmasked head, US Agent had an alternate pair of hands.

    I think I'll be leaving the figure like this, since the helmet did not have an A on it onscreen.

    Captain America with the Shield from the Sam Wilson Captain America

    This shield has the strap design instead of the clip / peg of the one that came with the Walker figure.

    The clip / peg shield from the Walker Captain America fits in the wing pack for this figure.

    Guess what! I got my Instagram back! The appeal worked! Yay!

    The following picture was done for this month's contest theme "Fun and Games"

    Congrats! Glad they decided to be sensible! I had no idea that rule existed; I don’t make it over there too often.

    This thread is now barely 1,300 away from reaching 1,000,000 unique views. I've never had a thread this successful in my 20 years on the TrekBBS. Thanks to everyone here for helping to push it this far!

    Understandable. Outside of here…we are all someone else’s toys. Now if you will excuse me, I have to get back to the ballerina and the clown…

    Looks like the quintessential info age office - glass and steel. So glad for the plants!

    I built a small haunted dollhouse this week. David S. Pumpkins has already taken up residence. Halloween is coming!

    Indeed! The "glass" walls are some plastic, don't know for what exactly, that I got from work when we were moving and they wanted to throw it away. We are an engineering office, and sometimes they get samples of materials for building. I got quite a haul that day which made my figures happy!

    Yes, very halloweeny indeed, Kira's Mom!

    I already have some Halloween pictures prepared as well, but I still have some beach photos left before Summer is over.

    Just a nice day at the beach.

    But then Kayo turned up and also wanted to try this game.

    And he scores!

    And then a Twitter friend suggested Kathryn kisses the winner. I had nothing to do with this!

    Also in Germany we do have beach chairs, made from wickerbasket, where you are protected from the wind and have shade.
    This one is a money box. Sadly a bit small for two.

    It looks like a temporal anomaly has been averted in spite of the Chakotay variant showing up!
    The beach chairs are cool- they look very retro and posh!
