The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6 Inch Figures?

I didn't see this coming at all. I don't see how vintage tanks at $10 and Hasbro thinks a line at twice that, with an exhausted and overspent fan base, is a good idea. That said, based on how amazing that Luke looks, figures like R2, 3PO, Vader, and Fett will be hard to resist even though I see myself as done with Star Wars collecting.

It's a great time. There's another one this spring, I assume after the movie and Joe Con.

Got this a couple weeks ago:


Joe Con 2012 Darklon. Cost an arm and a leg, but worth it.

Everything in the set's been revealed now. Really liking Asp, Repeater, and Spearhead, but man, was Hit & Run a miss. The SAW Viper isn't really doing anything for me either.

I'm wondering if I should skip this set and wait for ARAH-colored Joes in a future FSS and just buy a Frag-Viper off ebay.

MOTUC- still liking this line, but this year seems like a stinker of a lineup. Glad to see Ram Man, Jitsu, and Clamp Champ, so that's good. Then there's that Grayskull I preordered...

GI Joe- provided the stuff ever shows up. I preordered the second wave of stuff from BBTS since I expect that only TRU will stock the stuff with any regularity. And even then,  it's a Hasbro line, so distribution will be dogshit. The Kre-O stuff looks like a lot of fun, but I'll resist the temptation.

I'll likely spend most of my increasingly rare spare dough on vintage He-Man and GI Joe. I'm glad for the break on Star Wars, and I really don't expect to see anything new until 2015 or whenever Episode 7 hits.

A bunch of figures have been revealed already- Charbroil, Muskrat, Psyche-Out, Frag-Viper, Letal, and Cobra Mortal.

I'm ambivalent about most of them so far, except the Frag-Vipers and (believe it or not) Psyche-Out. Hopefully Spearhead and the SAW Viper save it for me, though I'll bet I'll try to get this one depending on how the Homefront Heroes registration goes.

I can only imagine if they did Cobra Commander- I actually like his design in this flick, and a Hot Toys version of that would be another $250 out of my pocket.

I don't think it needs its own thread-

Hot Toys GI Joe: Retaliation Snake Eyes figure

I'm not big on 1/6 stuff, but man, I'm thinking about getting this.  :o

OK, I'll just leave it here then. Sounds like we won't get the first shipment until after Christmas anyway, so it is what it is.

I was going to grab Gandalf and Legolas, but I have so many of them from Toy Biz I didn't want any more. Though I'll probably grab them anyway.

Found a big display of these at K-Mart like Jesse mentioned (thanks for the heads up!), so that was nice. Grabbed the 6" versions of Bilbo, Thorin, and Tauriel, and I have to admit, the 4" line looked great. Gandalf and Gollum were like little works of art, so I'll probably go back and grab some of those now.  ::)

The Vintage Collection / Re: Recent Vintage Collection Purchases

Got my cases of wave 5 and 7 from BBTS this week. Finished for the year, except for Sandstorm Leia and the 501st Trooper.

Got this email the other day:

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

This is going out to everyone who subscribed to the GI Joe Collectors' Club Figure Subscription Service.

If any of you have moved since you placed your subscription order it's time for you to update your new address!

Please click here to log in and check your account!

We are anticipating that the first two figure shipment will ship before Christmas so that means you have until December 2nd to update your address. After that date, we do not guarantee that your shipment will go the correct address.

In order to get all of the orders out the door in one week, we need to start the printing and prep for all of the orders we received starting on December 3rd.

Provided that our shipment from China is not delayed, we are working on getting all orders out the door before Christmas. We will hopefully start sending them out the week before Christmas.

For those of you who have purchased on the installment plan, we anticipate that the second billing will take place in mid-January so we will give you updates as soon as we know the final schedule.

Thanks for all of your support and we hope you have a Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday Season!


PS. If you have any questions, you can use the link at the bottom of the log in page to contact customer service.

So I have to ask: reveal the figures we get in this thread, or start a spinoff spoiler thread?
