Just curious - even though its been discussed before, how does everyone here feel about movie figures? Do you pick them up at all (regardless of scale)? No interest? Does it make a difference how much you like the movie or not?
I was just curious as I've been thinking about this lately. I've been one to pick up some movie figures in the past. I skipped the X-movie figures, and didn't get things like the Legends movie Daredevil, but I've picked up the Spidey movie figures, and the first movie's Fantastic Four figures (in both cases, just the "normal" versions of the main characters). I guess I've been a big movie fan my whole life, so I kind of look at it like Star Wars as "movie memorabilia" or something. Anyways, this year, the 5" scale switch came about, and I was reconsidering things. I've also passed on the X-figures in the Hasbro Marvel Legends line so far. I did pick up some Spidey movie stuff, and if they do the rumored 6" lineup, I'll get those as well (at least the "new" ones). I picked up the Silver Surfer figure from the new F4 movie line, just because I'm a fan of the Surfer and thought the figure was cool. I was considering getting the rest of the lineup too (the four, Doom), but have so far decided against it. If they ever stuck a movie Surfer into the Legends line, I'd likely pick it up, but I'm not sure how much further to go with the movie stuff.
Collecting funds are getting tighter this year with me trying to cut back overall, the blast of great Star Wars product this year, and a baby on the way. So much collecting dollars go to Star Wars now, so anything outside of that I really need to consider. I always thought it would be nice to have one shelf of the Marvel movie characters, but I'm starting to lean towards only doing that if we see 6" versions in the Legends line or something. Anyways, long story short, I'm just curious what others opinions are on movie figures and why you collect them/not collect them? I guess I like the comic versions better anyways, but I've always enjoyed movie collectibles to some extent as well.
