I believe they have to hit a pre-order target in order for the Hoverboard project to happen.

Not sure what the number is.

I don't see why people in here are griping about the price of the Hoverboard. Basically the whole thread is about action figures that are in the $200 or over range :lol:. It's actually less than what I thought it would cost to be honest.

I've always wished some company (like Sideshow or Hot Toys or whoever) would do some Back to the Future action figures. I wanted them since I was a kid and it seems like a bunch of the big franchises have figures out now except Back to the Future.

Bought that one back in January. It's the only Universal Select figure I just had to have. Also recently picked up the Munsters figures from Diamond Select. They don't look quite as good as the promo photos, but they are still quality sculpts. Looking forward to picking up Marilyn and Eddie this summer.



Finally got my Return of the Living Dead Tarman figure from Amok Time a couple weeks ago. Ordered their Elvira and Day of the Dead figures as well, but this guy is my favorite.



And on the NECA front, I finally have the figure I've been jonzing for since childhood sitting on my shelf:

I bought this Alien figure the other day. It looks pretty cool, better than it does in that picture. It stands about 9"s tall. I'm planning on making a diorama for the Xeno to stand on. I'm going to be looking at pictures from Alien so I can make the base and background look like the Nostromo.

EDIT: Anyone know of any good images that show the corridors/insides of the Nostromo for reference?

I know it's a lot of money, but the Hoverboard Prop Replica is just too cool to pass up. I caved and bought it. Will post pictures in December (if I remember this thread exists) when I get it.

Anyone heard of this site?

You can create your own action figures using your own face.

That Michael Keaton Batman looks more realistic than what you might see at Madame Tussauds.

I've been out of the action figure scene for a few years, but this caught my interest! Does it look as good as that promo pic? I see they're doing E.T. later this year too... I gotta get the childhood icons for sure. My office desk needs to raise the bar...

I think it looks a little better in person. Here are some photos I took:

I know, that first promo shot I posted is just about life-size. My photos probably show off more of the detail than if you had the actual figure in front of you.

Has anyone ever made collectibles from The Last Unicorn, like the title character and the red bull?

To those of you that unpackage figures to display them - How do you get them to not topple over? My Creature From The Black Lagoon from Diamond Select Toys just won't stay standing anymore (It did fine for a couple months). There are no back/hip/leg joints to adjust the balance with. This is frustrating me.
