A nearby Target put out some new cases of Black Series. Of course all of the OT stuff was gone instantly. The rest will probably still be there a year from now.

Hey everyone! New to this thread.

Anyway, a manga/collectible shop opened in my local mall. Found SSJ3 Goku and Cell era Gohan. Going back to check out the prices, because I was in a hurry.

watched a couple video reviews and the McFarlane fortnite figures actually look pretty good, too bad they’re not making any characters I want

and the last three NECA TF2 figures are out but Sniper doesn’t have his glasses? such a weird choice

The Marvel Legends A-Force set showed up. Three of the figures I like a lot. One is ok. The rest...
One of Singularity's arms immediately snapped like dry tinder. This is my first experience with breakage on a figure outside of NECA since I started collecting again.
And She-Hulk... Jesus. The hip joints are those weird old ones that haven't been used in years except on Ares. I could get past that. But man, the upper torso and arms are ludicrously small compared to the rest of the figure, and the upper torso flops around like the head on a bobblehead doll. And the face is just fucked. It's like it was sculpted by an alien who had only seen a woman in a reflection in a lake. The figure reminds me of Robert Cop.

I picked up a Mafex ESB Boba Fett. Amazing figure. I didn’t care how bright the color palette was on the Black Series version.
The detail is fantastic for a 6” figure and I love that they included multiple hands to swap for different posing.
It looks great with other Black Series figures.








These are the definitive Fett figures in my book. Seriously. I may grab the RoTJ version too, they used a different sculpt.

I thought that it was going to be tough to find a Black Series Zuckuss because of the high prices on Amazon and eBay, but naw. Couldn't have been easier.

I'd bought all of the ML Cull Obsidian wave except Thor at pretty good discounts with the idea that if I paid scalper prices for Thor I'd still come out ahead.
But I just found Thor for <$20 at Fry's Electronics of all places. They hadn't gotten any new figures since the GotG2 Mantis wave.

Amazon has big discounts on all of the ML MCU 10th anniversary stuff today, including the Iron Man 3 set, which I've never seen discounted at all before.

You can thank the stiff as fuck hip joint mechanisms and the metal content in the feet / legs for that
honestly i am surprised in general at the amount of metal in this thing, even the sliding mechanism for the torso has a shit ton of die cast. the VF-31 may not be my favorite valkyrie, but damn if im not impressed with the toy, im almost as impressed with it as my current favorite the VF-19Advance.

World of Nintendo - The perfect series to collect if you're cheap but also willing to drive around a lot. Actually, it can be pretty expensive if you don't like the chase and you gotta love the chase because the quality of these toys is frankly what you'd expect for the retail price and target demographic (ahem...young children). Although sometimes you're like "Really? $5 for this?"




Total cost: $95 + tax. The absolute madman.

Good thing for me I love the chase. I got a Para-troopa 2.5" figure ftom Walmart today. Only one in two towns, just got lucky i guess.

I don't know why but the Koopa family are my favorite figures from World of Nintendo.

Can't believe it took this long for a 2.5" Koopa to come out. One of the most basic, iconic enemies in the franchise and it was beaten to shelves by the likes of Chain Chomp and Bullet Bill (man, do they love Bullet Bill).

In my opinion, the most glaring omission from World of Nintendo's 2.5 and 4 inch series is Birdo. Where is Birdo??


I'd also like to see them come out with 2.5 inch Lakitu, as well as any Cheap Cheap, 4 inch Para-Goomba, Spike, Boom Boom, Kamek and variants King Boo and... Snifit!!!



This 4 inch wave drops in January, i'm all about the Piranha Plant and Dry Bones and their articulating jaws.



New packaging and Mario-specific branding as of 2019




Ugly but eye-catching

The World of Nintendo line completely lost my interest because it basically turned into just a Mario line.
For me the entire point was that it had a wide selection.

How the hell did they only make a single BOTW figure?

World of Nintendo is my favorite toy line. Can't wait to get the Piranha Plant and Dry Bones, and Fire Bro, too.

I'm gonna need more space for them, though. I recently got Bowser and he took up all of the free space I had left. Hah.

Ha, same. I have way too many of these figures now and it's a cluttered mess to display.

Even so, i have some glaring gaps.

I still need

2.5"
Wario
Boo
Boo (glow)
Blooper
Tanooki Mario (as if i dont have enough Mario variants)
Cranky
Dixie

4"
Lakitu
Baby Bowser
Peach
Fox
Falco

And of course the 6 inch Metroid

Yeah, it kind of sucks that they don't focus on the other franchises, but i would be the reason is that the Mario line sells the best.

Man these Fortnite figures are going to be an even bigger deal than I thought,

Was at target but they hadn't pulled them out yet, they bring me one(Omega) and go to get the other they had(Drift),
A kid in the toy section sees it in my hand a freaks the hell out about it, mom comes and asks me where I had found it so I told her what to ask a worker for.

I drive to another Target because they had one everyone else was sold out of(Raptor) I get there and they are stocking the Llama pinata packs,
A little girl sees them and also freaks out, runs to show her mom and then begs to show her brothers.
A few minutes later she and her 2 brothers come running back and each buy one.

Clearly Fortnite addiction is worse than heroine. And gets people hooked at a younger age.
