1 and Only Movie Figures and Collectibles Discussion

Judging from pics in the dvd talk forum, there are plenty of collectors on here for figures. Anything related to McFarlane, NECA, or similar stuff should be posted here.

Before I moved to NC, I had a ton of McFarlane figures. I made the mistake of giving them away to my friends before I left. I didn't have room for them at the time and didn't think to add them with my dvd collection, as many do here. I was a store manager of Spencer Gifts at the time, so I had access to all the figures we carried. Plus that 25% discount didn't hurt. If I recall, I had the following:

18" McFarlane Figures
-Leatherface (from original)
-Edward Scissorhands
-Freddy Kreuger
-Jason Voorhees
-Ash
-Michael Myers

Also had these boxed sets:
-Jaws
-King Kong
-Alien Queen
-12" Predator
-12" Alien

Had these 6-7" Figures:
-Norman Bates
-The Crow
-Michael Myers
-Jason
-Freddy
-Chucky
-Terminator and T-1000
and several others

Freddy vs Jason boxed set
Michael Myers vs Loomis boxed set

I had enough to fill an entire bookcase.

Alot of these are now being released by NECA, who does great work. I've just ordered the Kong boxed set and am going to try and locate some of these to spruce up my dvd collection.

Any comments, news, pics regarding figures, post away!

having said all that, here's what NECA is offering in their Series 3 of Cult Classics:
-John McClane
-T-800 Endoskeleton
-Bubba Ho-Tep from "Bubba Ho-Tep"
-Flyboy Zombie from the original "Dawn of the Dead"


Not sure when they will be available.

this looks cool, McReady vs Dog Thing, comes out in June

I'm a McFarlane fanboy. Articulation might suck but they make up for it with their quality (if you can believe it, I've only had one broken figure since I started collecting about 5 years ago), sculpt and price. Imho, most of the McFarlane figs look better than statues that sell for $40 or more. I think McFarlane is losing it by not acquiring movie rights the fans want. Everybody wanted a John McClane and that Donnie Darko bunny, yet he chose not to do it. Now he's focusing on "3d" posters, that costs around $20 a pop.

I don't like Neca's style. The faces look crappy and the paint looks cheap, look at John McClane.

Mezco I'm starting to love. The comic book Hellboy figs are awesome as hell(pun intended). I'd say it's the best line of 2005, followed by Corpse Bride from McFarlane.

How's your hdtv by the way?

I wish Art Asylum would do more movie figures than Star Trek ones. The Bruce ones weren't bad, but I didn't need or want them to be articulated. I guess I'm so conditioned by McFarlane for there to be no articulation.

I've heard that the John McClane figure will have an R-Rated sound chip with him. Should be very cool.

Shaun from Shaun of the Dead is confirmed for the Cult Classics Series 4 line.

I've been impressed with that line so far. The only one I was disappointed in was the Jason figure. It was the exact same design as the one McFarlane released. They should have made a stand alone one based on Freddy vs. Jason.

It's doing very well. Finally getting it broken in. I haven't been able to get a a/v disc yet, but the settings look pretty good. I picked up my HD box today during my break. So when I get home, I'll be ready for some HD programming.

I think I've made my stance on McFarlane already known. I dislike them. The plastic smells funky and the articulation is just god awful. It works for a poor man's statue but it sure doesn't take long before dust gets on it and completely ruins the way it looks forever more.

I'm enjoying the NECA figures myself. They have good sculptures and at the least they have some articulation to them.

I'm a Sideshow fan myself. Especially with their new Star Wars 12" and 1/4 lines & LOTR 12" & 1/4 lines. You can check their site out at sideshowcollectibles.com.

A couple figures I have on order:

12" exclusive Luke:


1/4 25" exclusive General Grievous:


1/4 22.5" exclusive Lurtz in Armour:


The 12" Star Wars line is so hot the exclusive version sells out within an hour. They are releasing their 4th figure in the line this Friday, that being Jedi Kit Fisto.

Oh, some of the Marvel fans might have liked this piece with an edition size of only 50.

Gray Hulk VS Spider-Man:

The figure is already selling for 3 times the selling price on eBay. It is easily the best 12" figure of Luke on the market and really the only one that captures his likeness from ROTJ. Tons of accessories too.

The Cult Classics Jason (Friday the 13th Part 7) was based off of Neca's first 18" Jason, not a McFarlane design. Neca also released a second 18" Jason, based off of the 7" Jason figure from their Freddy vs Jason boxed set. McFarlane has never made an 18" Jason figure.

18"

Freddy - Freddy vs Jason (Neca)
Jason - Friday the 13th Part VII (Neca)

I thought the Gray Hulk ES at 50 was interesting move by Sideshow, especially with most of their *new* stuff selling below retail on Ebay.

I'm surprised they didn't increased the ES like they did with the Doom EX.

That would have been nice. Did you see the Beast Maquette when it was up? I'd post a picture but the thread might get moved to the adult forum.

I have several Hulk figures (my favorite superhero character). Most are older smaller ones. The newest ones I have are the Marvel Legend green Hulk with shirt and without.

I would actually hold on to the Legends. With all the shake up that is going on and the potential rumor that Legends line might be done with Marvel moving to different companies they could be worth something..

If not, just contact me. I know a good number of people who are Legends nuts.

I used to be a huge toy collector but got turned off to it by all the exclusives and stuff they put out. Palisades was doing a great job with the Muppets but before you knew it there were 3 variants of a figure and then there was one you could only get at a toy show. I understand this is part of the business these days but I lack the funds or patience to chase down these figures. I used to buy all the Movie Maniac figures and display them proudly until they put out all the Texas Chainsaw Massacre figures out in there MM line. That was enough to keep my from buying anything Todd and his people have put out since.

I used to keep a variety of things out but now my big things are my Kevin Smith Inaction Figures, my Mulder and Scully busts, my Matrix figures and busts, my dagger from The Shadow, my Shrek figures, my Holy Grail 12 Inch figures and a few random posters and film cells. The only toys I even follow these days are the Inaction Figures.



I can't wait.
