New year, so time to do this again. I try to post an update at least every "new year" but for some reason this year seems more like a fresh start than others. It may be with the new movie(s) on the horizon, plus the fact that I'm really trying to focus in on what I collect, but it feels like a good place to start the year. Here's what I'm looking at for 2015:
I don't really expect us to see much prior to the Force Awakens stuff hits. For Black Series 3 3/4", maybe just another wave beyond what we've already seen? Also, with possible price hikes (if they stick), that will definitely effect my collecting if its going to be $13 (or more) a figure. That being said, here's what I'm planning on for Star Wars
3.75" - Most to all OT Black Series offerings. We'll have to see what happens with new movie stuff, but I'll likely be hyped and in if the figures aren't horrible, whether they are articulated or 5 POA. Haven't really seen Rebels stuff yet, but I'm still trying to decide whether to jump in or not. I like the show, but with movies looming, space is an issue. I have picked up most of the OT-based Legends/Mission Series stuff too. OT Vehicles if its new to me, or if they make any.
6" - All OT figures, beasts, or whatever else they make. Really enjoying this line. Again, we'll see about the Force Awakens stuff.
Legends - I was pretty much all in on these the past couple years, and would like to continue to, but I'm going to have to make some cuts somewhere. I may get more selective here, depending on the Build a Figure. From what I've seen, I'm in on the Avengers ones, and the Spidey wave I may just be picking and choosing. Can't wait to see what that Guardians multipack will be like that they mentioned last year at SDCC I believe.
DC Collectibles Batman: TAS and Batman:TNBA Line - All in here.
OT-based sets as I can afford them and/or get gift cards. I sometimes stray to the Marvel stuff as well (or LOTR), but we'll have to see. I really like the LEGO stuff and building them with the kiddo, but I really only get these as I have the funds.
So, primarily Star Wars and Marvel again for me. It seems like Marvel stuff is shifting more towards 2.5" and 6", based around the movies, so I'm basically back to just Legends there. I'll pick up some of the "Infinite" 3.75" stuff if I can find it, primarily Spidey or Guardians-based stuff. I really think Star Wars is going to be all about the Force Awakens this year, with a slow period from now until Sept/Oct. It will depend on the movie, the quality of product, etc., but I'm guessing I'll be mostly in for the Force Awakens lineup. Although they are crazy expensive, movie years can really be fun as hunting for figures isn't always quite as difficult, and Star Wars is a great focus in the toy aisles, always fun.
