While I'd love for that SDCC deco to be available, I have to vote for Cassian Andor from the Target 3-pack. NOT EADU!

IIRC, I saw something about some new figures from The Black Hole.  And it was specifically the droids.

Diamond Select Toys are doing VINCENT, Old Bob and Maximilian figures in 7" Select line. There are also VINCENT and Maximilian Vinimates.

I think if there were any lines I'd like to see done they'd be small runs, not big, epic properties like SW, LOTR or GoT. And I'd like lines that had vehicles or animals, like horses and such. Fun accessories. Something like a better Indy line would be good, or Pirates of the Caribbean. Battlestar Galactica (the SyFy series), Back to the Future, Ghostbusters, Star Trek, Firefly, maybe Archer. And I'd love a line that we could have 1-off characters from video games, movies or TV shows, like Lara Croft, that could fit in with other lines.

Having said that about the big properties, I'd take a Harry Potter line also. BTW, this would be all in 3.75" scale.

There are some things I'd like to see in 12" scale too but that would be more individual characters rather than full lines. And I'm thinking more in the $20-$50 priced toy range than the $200 HT or Sideshow stuff. I miss the Hasbro 12" G.I. Joe stuff from the mid-2000s.

I was a little on the fence on the PGV figure until the packaged shots were released and liked the change to the Mind Controller figure better which locked that in as the one I picked up for now.

I've seen the JoyToy stuff and it looks great. The mech suits are where it's at.

There are a lot of companies in the 1:18 market that I could be spending money on but I need to be cutting back, not expanding. The PGV drew me in partially because I'm always looking for more female characters to add to the ranks.

I've put in a couple recent orders with Marauders (on top of having backed the Agency/Contract/Dog/Exo Kickstarter), I'm definitely in on some of the upcoming Boss Fight stuff, the PGV fig... Plus I'm still waiting on the Eagle Force Kickstarter to ship as well as the BFS horses.

So. Much. Stuff.

I went ahead and ordered one of the Mind Controller PGV figs from BFS today. Looking forward to seeing how it turns out.

Is that a Doombot?  I don't follow the FF that much.  I will definitely grab a share of these and I like some of the ideas, but a little overwhelmed with how many 6" figures they're making for Marvel.  Do we really need a Luis from Ant Man or 4 versions of Captain Marvel?  Seemed a little over the top.  I also don't love that they're remaking so many classic figures.  Part me wants the new Hulk, Thor, Spider Woman, Scarlet Witch...but I already have versions of those figures that I don't have room to display.  These new ones make some of my old stuff obsolete.  I'm going to be very choosy with these - if they aren't an upgrade to replace my current versions on display, then I'll pass.

Yes. Yes we need Luis from Ant-Man. I need Luis from Ant-Man anyway. And at least they paired him with a new character/figure instead of sticking him in with an Ant-Man variant.

As for the number of variants for Captain man Iron Man and Captain America versions are there?

I liked the look of Gambit also, I pre-ordered him and recently picked up Silver Sable, which I love.


I was eyeballing Gambit but put in an order for the Legends figure instead. They do all look really nice though.

I agree, it's been a very good line. My local Target did finally get the flatbed truck and sub just before Christmas, had them for only a couple of weeks and them promptly blew them out on clearance. Even Target has become a cluster when it comes to stocking toys it seems.

I ended up with the JP Jeep, Grant, and Ellie. I also picked up a couple more dino figures, including some that were on post-Christmas sale. Nothing big, just stuff in the $10 range of releases.

The local Target is pretty well stocked up on the current stuff but last time I was in my Walmart, week or so ago, it was just a huge spot of empty pegs. I was out of town yesterday and stopped in a larger WM, in a bigger market, and they didn't have a good stock of JW toys either. Walmart is just the worst.

I don't know if I'll buy it but I am looking forward to seeing the Target exclusive Brachiosaurus. Not sure if that's supposed to be in stores or not though.

I need to put an order in with BFS for one of the Planet Green Valley figures. I'm interested to see the quality and where the line goes in the future.

My local Walmart didn't carry any of the reissue TF figures but I did end up picking up Starscream. I'm sure they won't carry these going forward either as they've reduced their action figure space to Fortnite. Anyway, thanks for the heads up on the Soundwave reissue. That, I'll definitely want.

Ordered Maria. I don't think I knew about the con exclusive until they started publicizing this release.


Joe Defender / Re: Vintage 3.75" ARAH Figures

I would say most of my summer was spent on vintage Joe figures, much more than the time I spent thinking about Star Wars.

Started at Joe Con in June, picked up some loose figures and parts to complete some figs I already had. Grabbed some blueprints and an Action Force Armadillo.

Also spent some time on eBay and went to the Harrisburg toy show and picked up some vintage 12" Joes and accessories. And the latest pickup is an Action Force Armoured Troop Carrier which I'm really psyched about.

I picked up the Hogwarts Whomping Willow set but the rest have sold through at Target and Walmart hasn't stocked them yet at my local store. I'm gonna hold off on a few of them because I want the new UCS Castle.

Nobody here has the minifigure packs out even though Target's app is saying they're in stock at my store.
