I just pre-ordered NECA Metalhead. I guess I'll have to go all in on the movie and cartoon lines now. Lots of online sites have the movie turtles and the cartoon Leonardo/Donatello pack available but the cartoon Mickey/Raphael pack is out of stock everywhere. Annoying!

*EDIT*
Man, these McFarlane DC Universe figures look good.



And new Star Wars Black Series Cad Bane figure announced.



And an Earth mode Ratchet!

Cad Bane looks great. Managed to get myself an order in - hopefully they’ll have enough to fulfil the order.

Darth Nihilus figure announced for Star Wars Black Series.




I'll probably skip him though as I have no attachment to Knights of the Old Republic 2.

That’s a cool figure. I never got around to playing KOTOR 2 so I know nothing about him. Looks good though.

Thought I'd show off my collection.

Star Wars Black Series





















Transformers
























Excellent collection you have there. Next time Mrs Flintty complains about too many figures, I’m showing her this 😂 Though to be fair, my man cave will be similar when I finally get it set up!

I didn't start collecting until after I met my wife whom I met in the Philippines.
Toy shops in Australia suck and I never noticed what Transformer toys were out there. Toys R Us in the Philippines is like a holy grail in comparison and I jumped on collecting Transformers while the Generations Thilling 30 line was running. Just in time for the Combiner Wars and headmasters figures were released.

Being back in Australia again I have found about 20 online sites that sell toys which I never knew existed 6 years ago.

It’s an addictive hobby, for sure! The Black Series quality has massively improved recently - I used to only get Figuarts SW figs but branching out now. The quality they put out for £20 is superb. I made a mistake and recently got into the Power Rangers line (though I’m sticking to the original 5, I swear!).

I'm annoyed that Hasbro improved their face scan technology because now I have to re-buy a bunch of figures when they get re-released with better faces.
I'd only be in for Power Rangers if Hasbro mad good Zord figures. The Soul of Chokogin figures are great but too expensive (looks at Masterpiece Megatron and Beast Wars Megatron).

I'd love to jump on MCU SH Figuarts, Figma and Bring Arts too.

It has been a while since I’ve put stuff up here. I have a bunch of new GI Joes to take pictures of but they will come later. Today I’m showing off some other recent additions to the collection.

Medicom Mafex Batman (Hush)







Hasbro Marvel Legends Dr Doom (Modern)





And a line I never thought I’d get into, but I saw Kimberly in the shop and it went from there... Hasbro Power Rangers Lightning Collection







And finally, the exclusive Black Series Cad Bane





Posting on mobile so apologies is these are huge!

EviLore EviLore If you could move this thread as discussed, I’d appreciate it 👍🏻

There have been a lot of new and interesting announcements and leaks recently with action figures.

Regarding Transformers, Hasbro officially unveiled their wave 1 Kingdom figures. If you're a fan of Beast Wars you might be interested.








Then we have some leaked Studio Series 86' movie figures.





NECA showed off their Triceraton and Rodney Roadkill set.




More McFarlane DC Multiverse.




If you like Squares Bring Arts line we have more images of their Vagrant Story figures.


Some new Star Wars Black announcements.










Some Marvel Legends announcements

Hot Rod and Robin look superb. Rogue also high on my list there! I need Rogue badly.

I’ve got my order in for Jar Jr. He’s a cunt but that’s a great figure.

This weeks addition, Figuarts Mandalorian and ‘the child’. His cloak is a piece of shit but the figure is superb. I’ll likely pick up a custom wired cloak.

Dang, just saw Venomized Captain America Marvel Legends, looks pretty cool. Walmart exclusive though. Hate these retailer exclusives that are just scalper food.

That looks good! I like Venomised shit, tempted by the Venompool set.

Yeah the retailer exclusives are bullshit, especially what they’re doing with some GI Joe figs at the moment. Incredibly frustrating.

I already see people trying to sell their Rogue around the $100 price range on FB groups, while few people has yet to hear the news of her re-release. It reminds me of how the 2013 Jean Grey quickly dropped in value when a new version of her was released.

That Retro Gambit head sculpt is an improvement but still ugly.

I don’t care about Aliens or Predator, but the Neca toys always look great.

I shed a tear today after seeing Walmart stocked with the Playmates Godzilla vs Kong toys. Neca lost the license for bootleg looking shit.

I'm very happy that I hadn't bought any of the Black Series Mandalorian figures yet.
Just announced.

I managed to pre-order my Black Series Mandalorian deluxe along with Jar Jar from an Ozzie site here.
I'm pretty happy with that.

That deluxe Jar Jar figure is the Jar Jar figure I never knew I wanted. Looking forward to it!

I like figures with lots of accessories. Something like a Deadpool where there are lots of places to holster swords, weapons, tools, etc.
I don't know exactly what I love about that but I'll take it over too much articulation. I'm not a fan of seeing too many joints.

Also, I'm really hoping to see a figure based off The Last Ronin. You could definitely outfit him with tons of accessories.

So please share if you can think of any cool figures like this, in the smaller range.

Unfortunately NECA wouldn't be able to make it, since PlayMates holds the master license which means NECA is only allowed to touch the significantly older segments of the TMNT IP. Even something as old as the 2012 show is too recent for them.

Woah, Puppet Master, right? That’s a blast from the past. They look superb.

The GI Joe line is pretty good for holsters and accessories. I especially like them when they come with backpacks too!

Am I weird? I keep all mine in boxes on display.



It’s not weird - people like to get different things out of their collection. I keep my boxes but I get around 90% of mine out because I like posing them.

I got my final two Power Rangers in the post today. Happy that I’ve got the set!

Is that the Lightning collection? They look really good.
