No R2-D2 or C3PO? Luke in X-wing outfit (wait was that announced)?

But yeah I'm not in for Tarkin or Wedge or Biggs or anything like that.

I have the Tamashii nations C3PO but no R2D2 yet...

I don't think Hot Toys is doing their own R2-D2 or C3PO yet. I have the Sideshow R2 which works for me for now and I have their C3PO on pre-order. Sideshow also did announce Luke in X-Wing gear but I haven't made up my mind about buying it yet.

As far as other characters there are a couple random characters I want to pre-order still such as the Sideshow Jawas and R5-D4. Still need to order a Sandtrooper or two eventually too and wouldn't mind trying to find a Tusken Raider (Sideshow made one back in the day). I'd actually consider buying Tarkin but I sort of don't think he'll get made. Aside from that though I think I'm basically done with the first film aside from another Storm Trooper or two. The only other things I'd consider is if they made some random droid or alien that I like.

While not a fan of the Funko Pop! craze, I have to admit I am liking the new GPK by Funko. Perhaps nostalgia.

I despise blind-boxed packages. Other than that, pretty cool, a property that actually lends itself to the style of the figures.

Picked up 2 of these at Hot Topic (Buy 1 Get 1 50% off) ... really nicely made .. we got Ali Gator and New Wave Dave. The nice thing is that if you buy a full box of 12 you are guaranteed to get 1 of each. I'll be going back to get some more.

How much are they and are they solid or hollow.

Hot Topic had them marked as $8.50 for one.

They seem solid - definitely not cheaply made. My son loves the accessories that some of them come with (Ali Gator came with a fish)

That was a pretty cool video. Surprises me that Black Widow sells the best worldwide as there have only been four figures made of her. I'm sure that Iron Man is still the bread and butter of the company though as they produce a huge number of variants and whatnot.

A cock tease with Drax in that video.

Re: 1 and Only Movie Figures and Collectibles Discussion
 
They'll do Drax eventually I'm sure. He's a Marvel character so he's basically a lock. My guess is he might be a situation like Loki where the figure didn't come out until the next film he was in.

Drax is confirmed, I saw a message that said preorders should start in Q4 this year.

About goddamn time.

Got my notice from Sideshow that my exclusive Scout Trooper is shipping soon. Just put in a reservation on the waitlist last week and it converted Tuesday. Arriving in six days.

The Jason Vorhees premium format figure looks great but I wish it was a 12 inch figure. Going to have to pass.

Mike86 07-30-15 08:18 PM

Re: 1 and Only Movie Figures and Collectibles Discussion
 
I saw that too. It looks nice but I prefer figures over statues.

Im not feeling the new Jason, so I'll pass but will get one for my son.

I like the sculpt, but that mask ... it just looks cartoonish to me. Maybe it's the head angle but it looks like the Mezco doll.
What really gets me is they say it is stylized from part III but it has the axe cut :thmbsdwn:

Some friends were doing a charity event last night that I couldn't make due to illness, but my wife went and won this in the silent auction. I was speechless for several seconds when she showed me.

My order for the Sideshow Exclusive Scout Trooper is supposed to charge tomorrow so hopefully I'll have it by next week. This is only the second figure by Sideshow I'll own and the first non-droid character (I only have R2 currently). Interested to see how their newer figures hold up compared to a Hot Toys figure. I wouldn't think they could screw it up too bad being that the figure is wearing a helmet and isn't an actual face sculpt of an actor.

The newest offering from the Hot Toys Age of Ultron line is Quicksilver. All of The Avengers team members are revealed now so I'm not sure if this is the last figure to be revealed or if more are coming. The figure looks decent but I'm not too interested in buying it.

I'm contemplating waiting for the next move for Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch. Granted, I haven't even seen the movie yet, but the costumes don't do much for me.

Just dodged a bullet. My $300 Hot Toys Robocop just fell a good 6 feet onto a hardwood floor. Head, both arms and legs flew to all corners of the room but luckily everything popped right back on and there were no scuffs. I almost cried.

Re: 1 and Only Movie Figures and Collectibles Discussion
 
That's the worst feeling to drop a Hot Toys figure. Luckily its only happened to me a couple times and they've landed on carpet but still.
