Re: My figures

nice Val, a question...
i noticed you didnt have a shadow utapua trooper(the black clone armor)
http://www.toyrocket.com/product1.aspx? … t_ID=44575
is that one ur looking for? i always check for him.
does anybody have that guy?

and for the collectors here is another question?
who is the figure you would absolutely loose ur mind if you saw him on the shelf for retail price.
i personally would trip if i found a shadow trooper...the original not episode3- but this would never be at a store for obvious reasons...

Re: My figures

I'd have to say if I found an original Firefly figure, from GI Joe, still in it's packing.  That's the other thing I collect besides Fett, is all the different Firefly figures (GI Joe, not the TV show).  Go figure, huh, since Fett and Firefly are similar type of characters.  That was always my favorite Cobra villian, I think because of the cool camouflage.  Urban camo had just come out, back in the day, and it was pretty wild looking.

Honestly Cujo, no i dont have that shadow trooper but only because i haven't seen it. Who here can honestly pass up a shadow trooper if they saw one? Certainly not me.

But the second link, the original shadow trooper is effing amazing. That's definitelty on my list.

Re: My figures

Ah I am glad to see the collection finally Val! Impressive indeed. I happened to get my first trooper today by chance, the 501st one. He looks a bit out of place next to R2 and Qui-Gon, but I don't think he minds. tongue

That and I found the Boba mighty mugg too. I was quite pleased, even though i was looking for the Mando evolutions.

Re: My figures

Btw, forgot to answer your question for collectors Cujo, The figure that i definitely want is an Old Ben Kenobi. A new one that is, like a Saga or legends figure. I have the one from the 90s.

And thanks Si and Ralin. I also have the Fett mighty muggs and a Fett Mr.potato head.


Does anybody know if more vehicles are going to come out?

Re: My figures

Oh yeah I forgot about that. That's a tough one because I don't think I have a lot of figures, and honestly want them all. tongue For sure though would be a Darth Revan.

Yeah, I picked up the new sculpt.  They look really sharp.  That was one of the things I was trying to get a decent picture of when we were at the Con last year.  When I moved from my old apartment, I found out that the "o-ring" in almost all my older Firefly figures I had setting out had dry rotted, because it's so freakin' dry out in Wyoming.  I ended up having to find someone who sold the things separately, and replace just about all of those.  That was a lot of fun.  I was reading somewhere that they're coming out with another one as part of one of their GI Joe comic book 2-packs that they have out now.  This one is supposed to be the Firefly costume version that's in the current GI Joe comic book series from Dark Horse, so that should be pretty cool. 

As for the other "figure" I collect (yes, I have three, too--must be something in the water), it's the different Batman figs.  Not the freaky weird ones from all the different lines, like super neon night vision cooling jet pack Batman or some crap like that, but just the basic "normal" Batman figs from the lines.  I guess you could say it's more than three, though, I guess.  I also get the basic Robins, Nightwings, and Azrael's that go with him, but that's it, I swear.  It's my wife's fault, really.  She collects the Batgirl, Huntress, and Black Canary figures, and since I already had a lot of the Batman figs in storage, I finally just took them all out of their boxes and set them out.  Seemed like a waste just having them all in storage.  I'm of that mindset now, that if I'm not going to set it out on display, then I should probably not waste the money on it if I'm just going to put it in a box somewhere in storage where I'm never going to enjoy it, you know?  Now I have to get rid of all those Star Wars and Star Trek figs I've been collecting since they first started coming out again.  Man, that was a pain in the butt to catalog and photograph for eBay.  Didn't realize just how many there were, until they were all piled up and sorted out.  What a pain.  Do yourself a favor kids, don't buy stuff just to put it in storage.  It's a pain to sort it all out later on when you want to get rid of it.

That had to be my favorite episode from that season.  What a creepy episode.  If that doesn't disturb you being in a cemetery now, I don't know what does.  Did you get the two different variants of the Weeping Angels?  I told my wife we were going to get the "scary" version, the Screaming Angel, and set it on the top of her computer, just to freak her out.

Re: My figures

That was a pretty good scene.

So, to get a little back on topic, does anyone else collect anything else besides just Fett stuff.  If so, what?  And why?

Star Wars is my first love but I also collect Nightmare Before Christmas stuff. Not so much figures but posters, stickers, things for your phone. I have a sick wallet and my toilet seat cover and mat are both covered in pictures of Jack Skellington's skull in different emotions. I also have a great collection of letter sets and other useless stuff that is in a box at home!

" Hi!"

Re: My figures

I feel like there was a topic on general collecting before... because I know I collect tons of various things. Vinyl records, milk glass and other glass wares, books, dressers tongue, All things Star Wars, guitars, Indy 500 memorablila, and Titanic (the ship not just the movie) stuff. I think i am a natural born collector. ( Or horder of stuff).

Right on, dude.  I've been collecting the different versions of Jack figures from the regular figure series.  I think my fav, though, is the Pirate Jack figure from his cameo in James and the Giant Peach.  I believe it was a Comic-Con exclusive one year.  Had to get one of my wife's friends to grab it for me, since we didn't make it out that year.  They had a Vampire Jack Comic Con version at the NECA booth last year at the Con.  Didn't even know about it until the last day.  Thankfully, they still had plenty for sale at the NECA booth.  I really wish they'd put out all the different exclusives in the Comic Con brochure.  There's so much stuff that you don't hear about until afterwards.  I was looking for something on eBay for a Comic Con exclusive fig from last year, and man, you should have seen all the stuff that popped up that I hadn't even heard about, and we were at the Con.  Oh well.  Anyways, only a few of them out, though, thank God, so they don't take up a lot of space.  Just five or six of them out (from the NECA series, that is).
