Re: The Official Toys and Collectibles Thread

Still building my collection of classifieds. Have broken a couple of rules i started with but havenít gone crazy. I bought a GI Joe figure , Recondo, because he was on clearance for like $11 at Target. As long as I donít dislike the figure will probably pick up a few more Joes whenever I see them cheap though iím still only looking to get 1 of each cobra character pre cobra la nonsense. Also have ended up with 4 different types of troops when I wanted to stick to 3 when I found a viper 3 pack for $60.

Figure itís a real long shot but if anyone is interested in the hiss tank and drivers but didnít care about cobra commander as much iíd be down to split it and pay a sizable chunk for just the commander. Really donít like any of the other version of him that are out and it s a pretty glaring omission from my collection. May end up breaking down and getting one of the ceremonial ones and a custom head of the hood version. Hopefully that can tide me over. Id honestly rather the ugly metal one than the ceremonial one as the metal one was the one i had as a kid so at least thereís some attachment. I donít remember him ever getting all fancy like they have out.

The new Haslab is the GI Joe Dragonfly. It looks great, but I don't think I have the space (I also passed on the HISS tank though I question that every day)

Donít know if this will be the best deal on him but if anyone is looking to get chuckles from sdcc this guy accepted my offer of $50.50 after he turned down my first offer of $45. From what i read chuckles is going to be 41 or 42 in san diego. Wasnt collecting last year so wasnít sure if mindbender was the same price when he went for sale on the website.

That's 50 bucks just for the code to order the toy for 50 bucks, right? Just making sure.

Hopefully it will also be available on Pulse.

Re: The Official Toys and Collectibles Thread

On the subject of Cobra Commander's hood, and whatever KKK associations it might or might have, I've been watching old G.I. Joe cartons on Tubi.

I've been cracking up over the five part "Arise, Serpentor, Arise!"

They keep saying that Serpentor was created by combining the DNA of history's greatest conquerors. Alexander the Great! Montezuma! Napoleon! Genghis Khan! (Impessive that Cobra uncovered his burial site that's been a secret for eight centuries.) And dozens more!

They really, really didn't want to just come right out and say Adolf Hitler, did they?

Re: The Official Toys and Collectibles Thread

So Super 7 is insane and put up this crowd funded Thundercats Cats Lair (the Thundercats base). This is for their 7 inch line of Ultimates figures:
https://super7.com/products/thunderc...ates-cats-lair

Looks amazing (they had the prototype at SDCC), but besides the cost, where would anyone put it? Also it's not to scale with their Thundertank because, how could it be, the thing would have to be even bigger for the vehicle to fit in the paw.


Also they're doing toy inspired vac metalized Ultimates Silverhawks...

Ridiculously awesome, also completely impractical for anyone but the most crazed adult collectors.

It was. Was too busy/stressed last week with arranging a move out of state to look into whether or not that was a good deal or not. Live and learn. Got Chucks ordered at least. Excited for Jinx. Her original hasbro was the first action figure i ever bought.

Received the two packs of Valkyries yesterday and they may be my favorite troops so far. Now I need to pick up a few infantry figures to go with them. Wish they were more readily available like BATs and Crimson Guard are. Can still find those in the $20-$25 range regularly.

Re: The Official Toys and Collectibles Thread

I got the Tele Viper and Trouble Bubble set from Hasbro Pulse. I really like it, but it's got some problems. Like the tolerances on one of the sides is too small for the peg in the bubble to slot into, and one of the supports for the missile will not stay if the Trouble Bubble is titled in the slightest way. The Fwoosh had a great video that spotlights the problems. But ultimately I am glad I got it, cause it is one of my favorite dumb Cobra vehicle designs, and I am glad I got a new version of it in the Classified line.

Yeah, I normally collect figures only but saw this and it did catch my eye. Pretty cool looking piece.

Re: The Official Toys and Collectibles Thread

McFarlane's DC Comics multiverse action figures are showing up in most Ross Dress For Less locations for $5.99. None of the primary heroes like Batman or Superman, but most villains and secondary heroes like Static Shock and Red Robin. In the toy section. Boxes are in surprisingly good condition. Looks like the leftover inventory from Walmart and other places. These are figures still going for $15 and up on Amazon.

Re: The Official Toys and Collectibles Thread

Got back from a trip to Japan a few weeks ago. I was planning to look for some Transformers toys, but didn't really have that much time to shop. So I just dropped by a store called Bic Cameras and went to their toy department and got these two. Optimus Prime and Optimus Primal. Both combined cost me around $30.

Re: The Official Toys and Collectibles Thread

Bic Camera is awesome (for toys). Glad you were able to get something, especially with the killer exchange rate.

It's was kind of cool going to Tokyo and getting to be in a TRU again, especially with all kinds of Japanese toys, but also in many ways so saddening that those hedge fund bastards killed them domestically.

Cool figures! Bic Camera is a good store, and Yodobashi Camera also has a great toy department. Man it's been awhile since I've been to Japan, I always hit the vintage toy stores in Akihabara and the Broadway Mall in Nakano. The yen is so low, now would be a great time for toy shopping, I gotta get back there.

Re: The Official Toys and Collectibles Thread

I went to LA Comic Con on Saturday at the LA convention center. Had a fun time even though it was crazy busy. Picked up a couple more Transformers. This came in a box set. $40 total. Prowl and Ironhide. I think I got a pretty good deal out of it. They are really cool looking. Also, I’m not one who keeps stuff sealed in boxes, unless it’s Pops. So I take them out to display.

Are they Transformers: The Move variants?

They’re not. The legs are movable in multiple positions. Same with the arms. Yes Transformers the movie was on the box. The other stuff is part of the design.

Re: The Official Toys and Collectibles Thread

Yeah, I meant that the damage was part of the design -- Ironhide's cracked chest/windshield and the hole in Prowl's chest from this scene in the movie --


I remember watching this when I was a kid, and when they killed Brawn, Ratchet, Prowl, and Ironhide in the first five minutes with a heavy metal song playing on the soundtrack, I knew this movie wasn't messin' around.

Re: The Official Toys and Collectibles Thread

Yeah it's a Target/hasbro pulse exclusive:

https://hasbropulse.com/products/tra...hide-and-prowl
https://www.target.com/p/transformer...e/-/A-87449971

They were also clearancing them out for black friday, I want to say 25% off for non members/35% off for members, but either way 40 bucks is a decent deal if you like the toys. That studio series Ironhide is great, and the Earthrise Prowl is showing it's age but is still a great toy (and one of the reasons they reissued it in damaged form is because the original Earthrise Prowl was another exclusive release)

You can see even the faces have gaping mouths (no smoke coming out of them though)
