I open my Toy's because of space reasons, as I don't have enough room to store everything in the box. And most importantly because I'm not a reseller, I tend to buy figures I like and want to keep...

Plus I'm not too keen on a lot of the die-hard attitudes of the fringe toy resellers. Let's just say they can be real asses, especially the Hot Wheels collectors...

what the hell do you think you're trying to pull with that avatar!

anyways
i don't open a huge majority of my toys, mainly because i'm anal and i'm lazy. open toys get dusty easily, open toys get their accessories lost easily. i like hanging toys up, by that hook thing, on the wall, or placing the box on top of a shelf. everything stays lined up and organized. it's easier to take down and dust a package than to remove and dust each individual toy. also, when a toy has to be transported for some reason, everything stays intact with its original package. it takes all the hassle out of gathering everything up and packing them into a bag, or some other container, individually

i buy toys like anyone would buy a piece of art -- to look at and admire. i can admire a toy from all the angles i need from inside its package. and as anal as i am about my toys, i would never think of reselling them for money. i buy what i like and they stay with me for life

however, i do open my toys on a couple of various occasions
- when the package the toy came in is completely out of shape
- when you can't see the toy inside the package it came in
- when the toy comes in a box that i can easily place the toy back in (without harming the box)
- and when i don't care about the toy or when i'm using it as a prop for a scene. i had about a dozen jawa guys scattered throughout my room at one point ... i should take them out again. they were awesome

I only buy what I keep and I open them all. The ones that have multiple parts etc. are currently in a plastic bag. Reasoning? I'm not really interested in reselling. That's usually not why I would buy a toy. I think I did sell my Ruri though. It kept falling apart.

I collect Marvel Legends and the new Street Fighter line. I've opened them all except the Red Skull. I don't have enough room to keep them in the box and I think it looks cool having Magneto, Apocalypse and M. Bison standing together.

WOW, I think this is the first time in a long time I've gotten a poll to show results for me.

The toys I don't open are:
-ones I don't have room for yet (my DKR and First Appearence Batman are examples of such)
-ones I didn't want (it's cheaper to order a full set of DC Direct figures on-line then it is to exclude one, so I'm stuck with Hush [who I wanted until I got the much nicer Jason Todd] and Superman [if I wanted a Superhero minion for Ivy, I'd buy an ML8 Man-Thing, thank you], I also have a 'the Batman' Bruce Wayne who came on sale when I bought the Batman Joker)
-ones I lost interest in (When my Kia Asamiya figures arrive the Yamato Joker and Batman are getting shoved in a box, and my DC Direct Bizarro has taken over Hush Nightwing's box since I'm tired of trying to make him stand, my ML figures are stuffed in a cardboard box in my closet because I got so fustrated looking for Juggernaut I gave up on the line... and when SI finally ships my SF figures, psycho Bison is going back in a box)
-ones I purposely bought to display on the card (I have doubles of all of the Mattel Comic Batman figures because I like the sculpts so much, I have an extra Polno Diamond, and the first wave of new TMNT figures... I'm looking for a cheap Hush Harley Quinn to keep on the card too, she's so nice looking)

Everything else I open (which right now seems to just be Clerks inaction figures, DC Direct Modern Batman figures, and whatever random junk I buy)

I guess I don't open them......anymore that is. I used to open them when I played with them( when I was way younger), but now I dont have time so I just keep them in the box and display them for everyone to see. Another reason I dont open them is that they tend to get "worn out" more. keeping them packaged makes them last longer and keeps them safer. Also like someone already mentioned, they're accessories tend to get lost, especially those that come with a bunch of gadgets (ex : wolfwood from trigun). Although in the future I will probably be forced to open some of them, Im running out of space to put them in, my games have priority over my figures.

Vote Opener.

I use to collect Gundams, but I'm running out of room for my Rockman X toys from Bandai (Got my eye on an auction for the Plated version of EX Armor Zero right now.) so I'm tossing the Gundams for my 1st love.

Speaking of which, I need to find another figure that comes bundled with the right leg of the Shadow Armor. The last one I got came with the wrong leg armor.

Damn, Galactus looks really badass.
It looks like Toy biz is really hard up for variants. It's just a different facial expression on Bullseye. I really don't like how Toy biz can charge for a whole figure for just a different head(also being done with Storm and Black Widow in series 8 for those who don't know) when SOTA is packing in alternate heads with theirs. But as I understand it, it is the stores that are ordering toy biz around. Can anyone tell me whats up with that? Well atleast its good to see that there isn't ANOTHER Wolverine coming out this time.

Out of the ones from 9 I think I will only be getting War Machine, Prof X.(I mostly collect characters associated with the VS. games) and MAYBE Nightcrawler.

If they did something like this for Onslaught I would definitely buy the whole line to put him together even if it a buch of figures with the articulation of movie Daredevil.

I was wondering about this as well, and it is stranger, since they included an extra head for Deadpool and Weapon X Wolvie.

Same here, I just got the old Onslaught figure recently, but for what I've seen, it's not in scale with the rest of the 6" figures, I'm really hoping for a new Onsy in scale.

Maybe we'll get one someday, but for now, besides Galactus, ML 10 will be called The Sentinel Series, and as you can guess from the name, each piece will include a Sentinel piece, so you can build your very own mutant hunting robot.

"Bankrupt" is just a fancy term for "nothing is going to happen"

K-Mart went Bankrupt, and they just bought out Sears. Marvel went bankrupt in the early 90's and they're doing just fine now, and most important when talking about McFarlane is the fact Donald Trump has been backrupted several times and is STILL an insanely pompous asshole.

it'll be interesting to see what, if anything happens...

maybe some of his yes men will grow a spin and say "Twisted Fairly Tales is a fucking stupid idea, Todd" or "Sculpted plastic instead of clothe on 12in. Military Figures? You obvisiously have no damn clue why people buy 12in. Military figures to begin with"

If Mc Farlane quits the toy business, It would be the end of quality superhero figures.I don't know how he does them, but his figures are the best modeled and detailed I've ever seen. His quitting would be a great loss...

WHAT???
I won't deny McFarlane has great eye for detail, but in no way, this would be the end of quality superhero figures, no sir, it won't.
I don't know in which era are you trapped in, but McFarlane hasn't produced a single superhero toy in a long time (I'm not counting his Spawn statues).
He produces good movie figures, but Mezco, SOTA, Art Asylum, NECA, Toy Biz, Plan B Toys and several others produce toys on par (or even better than) with McToys.

I enjoy some of the McFarlane Toys figures, but I'll stick to the aforementioned figures when it comes to quality and price.

Well, I don't know a lot about figures but, the best I've seen so far are th McFarlane ones. I'd have said "quality figures" instead of "quality superhero figures", because the only superhero lines I know McFarlane launched were Spawn, Kiss and Witchblade (I think those were his, weren't they?). The McFarlane stuff I really like are those movie character figures, but I don't know about what products all those companies you have mentioned offer and its respective quality... could you post a link to any on-line shop/catalogue ?

Sucks for McFarlane. At first I thought the name was just a coincidence. I thought it was like Spike Lee suing Spike TV for the name. I haven't read Spawn or watch Hockey before so I don't know if either of those Tony guys are considered popular. But after looking on Google I found out that this case is 4 years old and The guy is indeed named after the Hockey character.

From what I've read of the situation it seems that only the comic side of Todd's company is filing for bankruptcy protection at this moment in time, and not the Toy Company. Reading the detailed list of debts you see that his toy company is listed as one of the outstanding creditors. So the big effect to the toy company should be 0, which is good as I want him to do some Who figures this next year...

However I hope his comic company goes do along with Image and the ever delayed Spawn...:P

Meca's HellRaiser figures look great, but I don't appreciate any improvement over McFarlane figures like, for instance, Ahhgnuld's Terminator 3 , the only one I own (the one with the coffin). Palisades G.I. Joe figures look great too.

Sotatoys' Street Fighter series are hideous. You know , if you love playing with them as I used to do with my Masters of the Universe toys when I was 6, I guess they are fine, but not to show them on a shelter at home. Same for most of Biz Toys as well.

I'm more on the figures/statues stuff, that's why PlanBToys don't attract me either, they have too much joints and articulations, but they are far better than all this Action Man crap.

I haven't seen all the sites thoroughly, but thanks Onsy for posting them anyways, you have showed me there's life after McFarlane...

Maybe so, but most of the K-Marts around the San Fransico Bay Area have survived the bankruptcy, they even opened a few of those huge ass "Big K" stores around here.

I guess Kay-Bee toys went through the same kind of bankruptcy where all the stores in one area close but it remains unchanged in some areas.

my point remained valid though, they went bankrupt and they still exist, it is not the end of the world for either store, nor will a bankruptcy kill McFarlane's empirer.

McFarlane will be will fine, just like the Donald, it's just his comic side that's filling for bankruptcy, his toy side should be fine, and worse comes to worse he could sell his balls and recoop I'm sure... I only wish loosing money acted as a humbling experience to both of them.

If Todd just said "we make dynamic statues toys" instead of pretending they're making "high detail action figures" that are all stuck in basically one pose, all my problems with McFarlane Toys would go away. But instead they make claims about how their action figures fall into the 'demilitarized zone' between statues and high articulation because of a few cut joints, because when only 5% of your figures have a true elbow joint or any articulation below the legs it's just a statement of pure hubris that you're making non-statue toys.

The first Scary Tales weren't McFarlane (does some looking up to see if I can find who made them) ah, they where by Mezco, I'm not sure but I believe it was on of their earlier lines, since they've had success with the Living Dead Dolls and Mez-It's with Horror themes, I'd assume Mezco's attempted to entire the business as a 'goth toy' company before seeing they could make money in licensed products and then moved on to make Hellboy (which is still slightly gothy I guess) and Family Guy (which um.. isn't very gothy)

But I digress, their "Scary Tales" consisted of "Alice" and "Red Ridding Hood" as sexy ladies (with variants being them repainted in different ethnicities for some odd reason) and "the White Rabbit" "the Big Bad Wolf" and "the Mad Hatter" as 'monsters'

pictures can be seen here:
http://www.action-figure.com/Reviews+S.html

They were not very good, the monsters were lacking anything special and the chicks were almost in a different sculpting style making combining them on a shelf very akward, plus the toys were really small (like 4in. scale) meaning they'd look odd mixed among other Goth Toys (Scale is one thing Mezco refuses to get right, with it's 8in. Hellboy line that towers over MacFarlane/SOTA/NECA's movie lines and 6in. Family Guy which are larger then the Simpsons, King of the Hill, and Futurama lines so you can't have a nice in scale display of "what if FOX pulled an NBC and had their Sunday night line up cross-over!!!")

McFarlane's attempt will be better I hope... the "Peter Pumpkin Eater" one sounds interesting, and maybe their Red Ridding Hood could be customized into a sexy "Morigan cosplaying as Bulleta" or something once SOTA's DS line comes out

Yeah I heard they're shipping either today or tomorrow... sure will be nice to finally have a set. (I wonder when wave 2 ships? because man... if Wave 1 has been pushed back to when Wave 2 was to launch, that means Wave 3 probably won't come out until July)

SNK figures would be nice... the High Dream CvS2 ones look pretty good and should fit in well with SOTA's SF line. But it would be nice to get an all incompassing line of KoF or Samurai Showdown or Metal Slug or anything figures. (Maybe if Udon does SNK comics, SOTA will make SNK toys, then they'll make every character from KoF... and fanboys can rant about how they don't look exactly like the comics as if the comics are the definitive source of the character)

the Alice one looks ok. the figure's nice, although there's something off about her face i can't put my finger on. it's probably that stupid expression as she's about to step into the gates of hell. speaking of which, that backdrop is kinda ugly, and not in a cool monster way

Red Riding Hood looks the best out of all of them. great face, cool hair style, everything else looks good, and a girdle's always an awesome touch. the backdrop is bugging me again though. it looks like it was just slapped together in the last minute, and generally not really working together harmoniously

speaking of not working together harmoniously, that wolf backdrop is so god damn ugly. and i don't get it. why would grandma have weapons on her wall or a bed headboard/footboard made of bones? this set is ok if this is one of their first lines, but i seriously doubt that McFarlane will put out work as subpar as this

off topic, these look gorgeous

Although I think they are thinking a little too far ahead since we haven't seen wave two finised yet and considering each wave can be delayed up to three months. But oh well atleast we get to know what will be coming out next year. Here are your choices.

The headliner
Akuma
Zangief

The big guy
Birdie
Hugo

The girl
Ibuki
R. Mika
Rose

The good guy
Charlie
Fei long
Guy

Third Stike Character
Oro
Remy
Necro

We finally get a third strike character and that they are cutting down on the SF2 characters(they don't have many left anyways).

Still it was nice of them to make Alpha Ken the alternate head and not a variant or something crazy (so can we assume Akuma will have his 3rd Strike hair stripe on his second head?)

Great stuff. Potentially MANY SF3 characters, but that will obviously never happen.
Akuma vs Zangief can go either way, I like both. Although Zangief would be more fun.
I hope Hugo wins (and he MIGHT be more popular than Birdie).
Either Ibuki or Rose will win the next one, I'm happy either way.
I'm sure Charlie will be there, but I'd prefer Guy.
Meh... SF3 characters are just uninteresting.

I voted for -

Akuma - He's Akuma. Case closed.
Hugo - We need the big guy! His figure better be huge!
Rose - This was a tough vote, but Rose is my favorite in the females section, I wish I could vote for all three...
Fei Long - I like Charlie, but Fei Long says "WATAAAAA!!!!!" so that makes him cooler in my book. Guy gets props too, another tough vote.
Remy - This must happen! Well, if it doesn't, I still have my Resaurus Remy figure.

This is probalby the best vote they've ever had since some of these choices were really tough. No matter which characters win I feel like we will all win in the end with these great picks!

No

It is pretty frustrating. I asked for a tracking # for the package. I was told they would have that number in "two hours" That was Yesterday afternoon. I suppose a Christmas arrival is out of the question. Now I will have to hope on a THIS YEAR!! arrival. Like you I did not order the variants either. I half way wonder if those who got the variants got some preferential treatment. I placed my order on credit card for them back in June or July. I hope like next week at the latest they will be here. Still hope for the bonus. I mean a discount on preordering Series 2 would be awesome IMO

Bonus or no bonus, all I'm worried about right now is actually getting my figures... since I seem to be in the same situation as you as far order processing went.

and now that SOTA says Series 1 is all sold out it's sorta like "oh great, now I'm fucked if SI messed up"

(will probably run down to the mall and buy a full set and hold to the receipt, since I really don't trust SI at this point and it's easier to exchange an extra set of SF figures, then to try and find them for a reasonable price on eBay)

I haven't got mine yet, I believe they were sent out on Tuesday though, so tomorrow or Monday should be when mine show up... should being the keyword.

Glad to hear you got your's though... so at least now I can rest easy knowing they didn't gyp me (which is good because my local Mall was out of Sagats -__-)

as long as mine get here BEFORE SOTA sends out my replacement Evil Ryu (I got one with the broken right arm, yay!) I'll consider myself lucky.

and I guess the AF board is down... good to know, I was afraid I had been banned for taking a snarky tone to at SF board.

Sota has the Psycho Bison E. Ryu set for sale at their site.

Well it was to be sent to Lancaster PA, but you see we preordered from Southern Island which had their allocated shipment destroyed during the initial shipping. We had to wait for Southern Island get their stock in. They did not get it until like the week of dec 13th. I thought originally since SOTA and SI are so tight by preordering with SI we would be among the 1st to get it but that did not happen. I did get 2 sets with shipping for 80 dollars thatís value of 8 dollars a figure. Not to mention SI could still provide us a bonus of some sort all though unlikely

I had a preorder at GameStop but when Southern Island started taking pre-orders I canceled mine so I could get them cheaper ($45 shipped from SI Vs $55 at GS sounded logical to me)

That was before SI had their unfortunate shortage (caused, like Adon said, by some of the initial supply being destroyed in shipping)... Series 1 was plagued with misfortune, from several factory delays to the crushing of stock, so I don't hold it againist SI.

However, I'm still a bit miffed about the way SI handles customer service (not responding to e-mails or sending out tracking numbers isn't cool) so if Series 2 doesn't ship in a timely and effective manor I'll just spend the extra $10 and go to Gamestop for my Wave 3 figures.

If you just want Evil Ryu and don't care about Electric-hands or Psycho Bison, go with the exclusive found at Southern Island.com

He's cheaper then the two-pack obviously and I think has the better head sculpts. (I know he's called "Evil Ryu" but he's not some monster demonic evil Ryu who would have FANGS I honestly couldn't stand to look at his face once I realized they gave him fangs)... I'm hoping SOTA messes up and sends me a replacement Evil Ryu with a stoic head so I have give him the electrohands and have an Evil Ryu I'm happy with (otherwise I might just break down and buy the exclusive version just for the head)

Pyscho Bison is only good as "accessory pack" for regular Bison (glowing fist AND a cool flame base!) unless you're into clear figures he's kind worthless.

"FINALLY!!!!!!!" , posted Sat 1 Jan 06:06:post reply

My SF figures came today... with one 'major' problem though:

In comments I said "please send Player 1 Ryu in his white Gi", since I knew White and Gray Ryu were both normal figures in the case I wanted the 'real' colored Ryu (didn't care about Chun-Li, since I'm slightly 'tone blind' so Blue and Turquiose look pretty much the same to me) So of course they send me Grey Ryu (out of spite I assume) oh well since I like to pretend to be a customizer I guess repainting Ryu is going to have to be my next project.

Edit: two major problems, Sodom's arm broke off (I even did the freezing trick)... I know it's easy to replace them, but really who gives a Fuck about Sodom, I'll just glue his arm back on in a pose that works with both his dagger and fan and be done with him.

Still it's good to have them finally...

Yes and no.

If you want to a super articulated figure, yes ,you're going to need to Frankenstien pieces from other sources, at least the joints anyway (might I suggest the LotR "the Ringbearers" set? 3 Clear figures you can cannibalize right there)

But if you just want to make small pieces like a head or some legs or you don't mind the final piece over all being a "statue" you can make you're own!

now, there are no clear sculpting mediums as far as I (or any customizer I've met so far) know of. So if you want to make custom clear pieces you're going to need to do some mold making and casting.

From then there are several options on who to fill your mold:
There IS clear plastic found in sheet forms at good hobby/craft shops (normally around the supplies used to make model train displays) called 'styrene' but unless you have the means to safely melt and pour it yourself I'd strongly advise againist trying this to avoid horribly burning yourself or poisoning your family with toxic plastic fumes

There are some 'clear drying epoxies' you can find in hardware stores that start in a gel form and dry hard, but I don't know how these work as I've never tried them.

The best (and easiest) thing to do is use simple hot glue... spray your mold with PAM then fill if with glue (making sure to tap it so the bubbles escape)it feels like soft vinyl when it dries so it might not be able to support a whole lot of weight so don't use it to give the Hulk clear feet or something, but otherwise it should work for you.

"Speaking of Street Fighter figures" , posted Wed 5 Jan 07:11post reply

Remember a while back, before SOTA got the SF/DS Palisades briefly held the the SF licenses?

Their plan was to do the figures in a 4in scale (why I'm not sure, maybe so the SF GI Joes could mix in? or because if you can't match Resaurus' giant scale, make 'em super tiny so people can't even fake compatablity?) but some kind of issue with Capcom prevented them from actually producing the line (character selection I'd bet, since SOTA said they were REQUIRED to put Ken in wave 2 and Palisades didn't have his picture in either wave) so the licensese were bought by SOTA who produced a line in the standard 6in. scale.

Anyhooo, history leason over, Palisades has just released a 4in scale toy line, "Army of Darkness" based of course on the Bruce Campbelle movie.

pictures here:
http://www.mwctoys.com/REVIEW_010505a.htm

So if anyone was curious as to what might have been, looking at these should give you a good idea on what kind of articulation and look their SF figures would have had (heck, SOTA even helped sculpt the AoD figures, so you could probably even assume the SF and DS figures would have simialr sculpts)

I don't have any real comment, they look as good as the rest of SOTA's SF figures... Adon looks like a Lupin the 3rd character to me.

Thanks for saving the links Onslaught.

No, those four pics were the only ones.

Wow! Thanks a lot Onslaught! Very nice indeed. As far as I could see there was nothing over at AF on these so maybe they were leaked out early. This board is still great for member getting it fresh of the grill! On a side not for me I pre-ordered 2 sets of wave 2 and got my wave 1 out with not breaks. I'm looking for beautiful street fighter motif for my room with the gashapons, sota, and resaurus figs

Just be careful with the headband. I broke my evil ryu's head band. DOH! I guess I could glue it back on. but still.

And Onsy, thanks for putting up the pics. I like Guile the best, next is Gen and Balrog. Adon doesn't look bad either actually. I wonder if Gen will have any posing problems with the kilt/skirt he wears.





Go buy the new Warlock series by Marvel. It is good support this title!

OH NO!!! Not the headband!!! Call up SOTA and complain, send them a picture so you can get a replacement because you got a BROKEN HEAD BAND!!!! OH THE HUMANITY OF IT ALL!!!!

My Evil Ryu's arm broke off, HIS FRICKIN' ARM!!!! you can glue a head band back on and nothing happens, I can't just *glue* an arm back on without loosing the bicep cut(although I did with Sodom because I don't give a crap about Sodom) THE BICEP CUT!!!! With the exception of the mid-knee swivel joint that's the second most important joint on a figure!!!

Thanks Onslaught! I like the look of these figures. I know these are still prototypes, but I hope the Adon and Guile heads get a slight make over. Adon doesn't look . . . sinister enough. Maybe more slanted eyes would help. Also Guile looks more like he has a frowny face than a strict face.

Also S.R. I don't see any problems posing Gen. If you have seen Chunli, her skirt is a very soft material that bends, which I think is the same material that makes up the top half of Ryu's clothes. They probably molded Gen's skirt to have that inden so it looked good when he is posed standing straight.

Good save on the SF series 3 pics! All of them look like they are coming along nicely although I'm surprised that they went with the version of Gen that has regular eyes. Now that I think about it, there's a surprisingly large amount of SF characters with clear white eyes.

I found regular Vision at the mall today! It was quite a shock because I was there around 1 or 2 in the afternoon. I usually see the rarer stuff earlier in the morning in most stores. They must have JUST put it on the shelf since there was also Hawkeye and Apocalypse. Once I get the new Iron Man that will complete the line up from the old Captain America and the Avengers game on the SNES.

I also met this cool old guy who knew his comics.

It's been a good week. I got the Spider-Man classic Carnage, the new super posable Spider-Man and now Vision. The only ML I want from an older line is Juggernaut, but I know that I am going to have to go through ebay for that one unless Kmart gets it in.

I've got a few toys since last time I posted.
I bought a Hellboy from the 1.5 line. I was about to buy Kroenen, but this guy sold it to some bastard... I also got Ultima Weapon from FF X
Around December, I got a HUGE case of toys thanks to a couple of Magical Benefactors, the case contained:
Master Chief from Halo 2
Onslaught
Green Goblin and Ultimate Thor from Marvel Select
Olga and Fortune from MGS2
Redeemer from Spawn 25 I think
Nightmare from Soul Calibur (Not the McFarlane one)
Captain America from ML series 1
Nobunaga and Jagyu Jubei from Onimusha 2
Tyrant, Nosferatu, G4 Birkin, Alexia, Wesker and Mr. X from Resident Evil
Borg from Star Trek
Crazy 88 from Kill Bill
Monev the Gale from Trigun

And I'm pretty sure I'm forgetting some.
This mysterious Magical Benefactor bought me recently a Bahamut and a couple of other figures as well.

Oh, and this was just a glorified BUMP!

There is a shortage of MLVI (and VII and probably VIII), as I've only seen Movie Punisher and Weapon X like 6 months ago and never saw another new ML figure since.... I believe most on-line stores are out of them too.

I went to Kay Bee's earlier today and found they had gotten in ML8. I didn't see any of the rarer figures this time only several Cap America's, a Manthing a couple of Icemans and a couple of Ironmans. I picked up Iceman and Iron man, I would have gotten Cap if I didn't already have the ML1 version. I only opened Iceman and I am saving Ironman as a present for my younger bro. Hopefully I find Storm and a Doc Ock would be nice too.

Iceman is a so-so figure. There isn't much you could do with him, but his paint job is pretty cool. It has this frosted over look. But like most ML figures this thing cannot stand on it's on two feet. Maybe I am too used to being able to pose my Street Fighter figs in whatever pose they can, but damn a ML fig cannot stand up without its base to support it. They need to make the feet a bit bigger.

I need to get the Iceman. I wish I could find the Phoenix (I don't need Dark Phoenix) because I believe MLX is supposed to have Cyclops and Angel! Then I'll just need Beast for the original X-men! And Beast is everywhere still. Are there pics of MLX up anywhere yet? I know that MLIX (Galactus Series, which I might get all of just so I can have Galactus) isn't out yet, but I'm more excited about series X (Sentinel Series). I want to know if maybe the Cyclops will have his current costume. I'd love that. The only Marvel Legends I have bought are the first Captain America, the first Iron Man, and Thor. I gave them all to my dad (a fan of the Avengers) and he has them in his office at church. Sadly, I never found that Giant Man, or any of the other Avengers (I want the Vision!). I'll probably pick up the new Iron Man for myself. I did get some new figures recently. I bought the Robin and Blackfire figures from the DC Direct Teen Titans line. Blackfire is worse than the Hush Poison Ivy about staying up on her stand (I finally got Ivy standing permanently! Without her having the ivy under her free foot!) I don't even have Blackfire standing. Now I need the Deathstroke and Wondergirl because the second wave of Teen Titans comes out soon, and I really want that Superboy. I also heard there is a Superman/Batman DC direct line starting soon, and I'm really looking forward to that, just so Michael Turner's Supergirl can finally get a figure! I hope anyway...

That's a damn good deal! The domestic price for any Marvel Legends around here is 14 dollars, so I'm glad you got them and with shipping included!

In any case, I'll wait for series VI to arrive to Mexico.
In the meanwhile I'll hunt down those cool Saint Seiya Myth Cloth figures, they're so sweet.

No problem. I just got my Juggernaut in the mail today. I also ordered Phoenix, but I haven't gotten that in yet. It should be coming any day now though. Juggernaut is big. His head goes to the top of the package and one of his arms alone is probably more plastic than all of SOTA Chunlis body.

On a slightly related topic, I got ML8 Doc Ock and I have to say that he is pretty sweet. I need to find a way to achor him so he can old spidey in his tentacles in the air. Now I need to find Storm.

Yes, another pic of Galactus! He looks pretty cool, and (as the article says) you can't even tell he's assembled.

Damn that is pretty cool. It looks like I will be buying myself another Hulk figure. I should also probably look for a Silver Surfer to go with it before they're all gone.

I wonder how they are going to cut up that model for articulation. A lot of figures can hide joints in the folds of the outfit the character is wearing but Mai is a clothing optional sort of gal so any slice is going to be pretty visible.

I've been waiting for this figure since it was announced, and now the US version seems to have a bright orange tip on the gun! What the fuck? it looks ugly!

In any case, I hope the rumors of a hidden barrel within the package are true

Edit: Oh, nevermind, he's not censured at all, it seems Diamond included the tip of the barrel in the accessory pack.

i don't get it. what's the point of an orange tip anyways? they do that shit to toy guns here so people won't confuse them for real guns. but this is a miniature toy. i'd easily mistake it for a vibrator or lighter before i would a real gun. whatever

oh NEVERMIND

you should make a new thread, onsy
