Army of Darkness?
« on: October 25, 2004, 09:45 PM »
Anyone know anything about this line?  I knew there were some figures out at one time (McFarlane Movie Maniacs?) but this looks different.  Army builder set at Toyfare

Hmmm.  Could always use an Ash...

I heard about these in the distant past.

I'm suprised. ;D

I cruised EE for them and indeed they have several available, but they seem quite pricey for the size, around $10-12 a piece in the case orders.  I'm guessing the movie places will be carrying them - Suncoast etc.  Wouldn't mind an Ash figure to throw into the star wars collection to mess with people.

I was wanting some Skeletons for customizing, but...  That's a tad pricey.  Hmmm

I was under the impression that the $10 price tag was for a 2-pack of figures. I could be wrong tho...  ???

12 pack of two packs (24 figs) at EE (sold out by the way) is $199.99 so yeah, that's about right then $5 a fig, $10 for the two pack.  Not so bad I guess, but might not need all the two packs or more than one.  Oh well.

If one of us can find these available at the $10 rate (on 2-packs), I think we may be able to work together to distribute extras and such...  Divvy up the fundage.

Like I said, this is fodder to me...  I'm wanting Skeletons, and maybe one of each human (for potential parts), but the skeletons mostly.  Those in this scale are like finding virgins in a *****house.

Eh. These suck.

Found 'em in several different places, and $15 is just too damn much for what little you're getting and how crappy it looks.

I'll just stick with my McFarlane Ash and Evil Ash.

I wanted some of the skeletons and such for customizing...

I've heard of issues with them being fragile though, and breaking like a McFarlane "toy" tends to, after just a few movements of a joint.

Still wanting to get the dead bits and pieces for customs though.

Beru and Owen charred, here I come!

Yup.  Found them at a comic store up here for not that much more, $19 CAD and made a big pass on them.  Too bad.

I picked up the five sets I saw at a local comic shop. I thought they were cool. I have yet to open them, hopefully soon, so I don't know about the fragility issues. But when I pop 'em open, I'll make my report  ;)

I also saw these at FP (london) I gave them a huuge pass after checking them out, too little for too much £.
Was weird how they just appeared, no film ties in's, nothing...
My 12 " Ash does the job nicely.

Just picked up a few of these sets today at Suncoast. They were on clearance and ended up being a little more than $4 apiece. They had the two headed Ash set, but sadly it wasn't on clearance.

The figures themselves are a little flimsy and fragile, but have some good articulation. Lots of weapons and accessories in these sets too.

I really like em and at the clearance price I'd probably buy a few more sets since they are, IMHO, very cool looking figures.
