Gah! The SP Buffys and Faiths are out!

MWC Toys review

I don't even have any Spikes, Darlas, or the Vengeance boxed set yet.  :P Well, I guess I only need one kidney to survive... ;)

Buffy figures look great.  The Faith figure looks like a piece of **** :-\  That is one butt-ugly head sculpt, super articulation or not. 

These were the start off point for me, or so I thought.  I definitely could handle picking up any one of the Buffy figures, but I'm going to be looking for the older Faith figure.

Yeah, I thought the new Faith figures looked bad when he had that big comparison pic at the bottom of his review. But I also think the previous Faith figures weren't all that great either.  :-\

At least these are a cheaper alternative to those, since they're pretty expensive.

Yeah, I'm kicking myself (again) because there was one locally for under $20.  Guess I won't be finding it for that price.  I may just cave and get one of these for the better accessories.  And then I may just say screw it on this line altogether.  I was really waiting for a nice Faith figure.  Articulation and accessory wise, it's there, but otherwise, meh. :-\

The Library playset.

It'll set you back $60.

SP Buffy and Faith figures MIP.

I'm really tempted to start a carded collection for these now.  :P

The next wave of Buffy figures.

I'll probably spring for the Buffys (Buffies?) but I've never been keen on the character of Dawn. "BufffffeeeeeEEEEEE!!!!"

Of course, I still don't have the previous two waves (now that Wes and Lorne and the SP babes are showing up) so saying I'll buy these Buffy figures is an empty promise.

I received my first SP BtVS figure today. I scored 'Graduation Day' Faith.

I still don't see how they can charge $15 or so. (I found this one on BBTS for $12.50, which is the best price I've yet seen.) This one is almost the same as the 'Bad Girls' Faith which is in the same wave. The only difference is there's a design on the GD Faith's shirt and an extra set of arms, plus accessories.

The insert in the clamshell is the same for all Buffys and Faiths. There's just a sticker of either Sarah Gellar or Eliza Dushku seperating them, and that's on the outside.

Plus I've read of a lot of breakage at the legs for these figures, so I'm almost afraid to open it.  :-\

I scored Season 5 Spike.

I want the vamped out trenchcoat version. :(

I picked up Judgement Lorne and Season 4 Wesley at Suncoast today.

The $12.99 price for these is much easier to stomach than the $14.99 these used to be, plus they include huge accessories. Lorne has a stage and Wes has a weapons cabinet.

I still have to get most of the Spikes and Darlas, plus the rest of these two, but I'm ready for Angel and Fred now.  :) And Gunn, if they ever decide to do him.

Man these things have come a long way from when I first collected them.  I had no clue they had a message board for these either.

These are SO much better than MAC's stuff. The articulation and paint is much better, plus they're easier to find.

I've already decided not to chase down the MAC stuff I lack. Eventually, DST is going to do Xander and Cordelia, and those are the only other main characters I lack. I hope they redo the Gentlemen, since those are mad expensive. And they just as well redo Drusilla, since her figure sucked hard. Golf-ball-through-a-straw hard.

BtVSFigs needs members bad. And the board badly needs people with good taste in music too.  ;)

Saw this linky earlier, and figured it wasn't too bad of a deal.

$50 for a membership plus that big-ass playset. I'd probably go for it if I had $50 to spend on it now.

Well file this under Oops.

Faith with jacket

and

Faith no jacket

I didn't think I'd win both :-X  And certainly not so cheaply.  I really didn't like the new Faith head sculpt, so I wanted the old one.  I bid on one about a week ago, loose also and it ended up over $25.  Why did these go so cheap?

Damn, that's a good price on the Faith with jacket.

I bet since the SP versions are making their way around, the prices are going down. Or you got lucky.  ;)

I'm hoping it was luck.  I wasn't expecting to get both, so I bid on both ::)  Now I kinda hope I can flip one down the road with a better listing.  I just hate the new Faith figures, so opted for this one. 

I'm going to wait out the situation locally to pick up a SP Buffy, since I think those are ok.  One shop has them and they've hardly moved.  I think if I wait long enough though I can pick one up for $5. 

I have a bid in on a transformation Willow right now too - $3.99 starting bid is my max.
