  1. I remember looking at the Jem dolls on shelves when I was a kid & thinking how ruddy ugly they were!! We did have some of the episodes on tape though, & I do remember the girls names, the bad girls names & even 1 or 2 of the young girls staying at Starlight House. One of them stole money....Kimberly I think. And I seem to recall the Misfits setting off a bomb in Starlight House! I also recall Mattels reaction to Jem....anger...followed by Barbie & The Rockers. Good to see Jem back (I guess). It will be interesting to hear new theme music.
  2. I honestly don't know which of your dio's I am looking forward to seeing finished more! Such amazing work & such a joy to watch being created. Thanks Stay_dread.
  3. I was pretty stoked to read Hot Toys would be producing figures from the movie 300! I gather they will be using the body suits like the Rocky figures. I was wondering if they are able to do much posing with these?
  4. Had a Ginny from the new assortment sent over as well as an extra table setting for my Great Hall: I really need to buy the rest of the set.
  5. DST has changed BSG wave 4. Both 'President' figures were kicked out of the set, to be replaced by Gaius Baltar: They also confirmed a new torso has been made for Admiral Adama: Some more shots of Gaius Baltar: It is likely the regular (non moustache) Adama will be released in a 2-pack with Laura Roslin. You can check out a behind the scened of series 4 at this link: http://www.artasylum.com/blog/2009/10/sculpting-bsg-series-4/
  6. Hmmmm... I wasn't really that into action figrues as a child. I loved my train set! I had an Inspector Gadget doll, the one with all the different head attachments. He was usually accompanied by Day to Night Barbie...when I could sneak her out of my sisters room. It might have been the Batman Returns line that got me to buy action figures with an Arctic Batman, Catwoman & the crappy looking Penguin figure (which really baffled me when I was young...much like the 'Aliens' figure packaging). Then I saw an awesome more movie like Penguin from Batman the animated series, & started
  7. I never gave up the the Indy toyline. I know it is just on break until they get a new movie together. We just have to hope Hasbro will be smarter next time around.
  8. Fantastic pictures! I received Akkuli in the mail the other day, such an awesome figure! I've orderd Alluxandra as well.
  9. I saw the movie last week. Quite enjoyed it. Paris Pursuit kinda reminded me of Team America with the good guys destroying half a city trying to stop the baddies (but the Joe team failed!!). Following on from that, I though all the civillian casulaties in the movie were a bit horrific. Poor Cover Girl. Couldn't they have killed off some other random female instead of a beloved character like Courtney! Plus she needs another movie action figure, the one she received has a Schwarzenegger jaw! Thought Chris Eccleston from Doctor Who did a great job as Destro. I don't get wh
  10. Athena/Boomer Longshot Sam Anders TRU Boomer Cancelled D'Anna Biers
  11. It is only the prototypes that have limited movement. The final pieces have heaps of articulation. They can do the splits! I don't have a full list of all the figures released, but here are a few of them: Wave 4 - Leader wave Razor
  12. I'm in Australia & I've ordered from them a few times with no hassles at all.
  13. Hey folks, Someone just mentioned on another forum that Hasbro missed their opportunity to make the Tonnika Sisters. Now they cannot get persmission for one of them? Is that the story?
  14. I'm going to collect every scale. My Aussie supplier only received the Galaxy figures so I have a few of them, but hopefully the other scales will show up in stores soon. My Big W department store should have them in now....I'd better get my arse down there! Also receiveing the playsets, though being international I will have to wait for wave 2 & the boosters packs till I can complete the sets.
  15. I believe they also mentioned the crummy economy as another reason they can't simply go into production for sets & hope for the best. It's just not wise at this point in time. DST seem keen to go ahead with the Borg wave at some point in the future, they just have to work out these issues with the alcove & wait for a better economical time to do it all. As I stated in the other thread, I am hoping that Toys'R'Us will come to our rescue with a few exclusives, but they only seem interested in TOS right now.
  16. I managed to snag a mint Bridge playset at an Aussie Trek convention I attended back in 1995 (crap, I was only 14!). It was hidden under a dealers table, but I asked about it & they said I could take it. It was around $130AU I think. It is still one of my favourite playsets. Engineering & the Shuttlecraft were awesome too. I never actually bought the Transporter set! I also scored the TMP Bridge playset mint in it's box last year thanks to Rick at NewForce Comics:
  17. Wave 2 will be available towards the end of next month I believe. Here is the new packaging:
  18. Toys'R'Us exclusive Tigh: They are also doing some Cylons & Anders in the flight uniform.
  19. The entire Borg waves are officially cancelled. DST mentioned in their Q&A they received less than a third of the orders they needed to go ahead with the Sisko/Dukat 2-pack. We were really very lucky to have received TNG wave 5, since there was little interest in the set & Chuck from DST said it was a very small production run, which is why they couldn't correct Crushers hairpiece when it came back wrong. Nothing besides TOS sells well at all. They said they may try & do some more things with Picard & Worf as they sell ok. But I'm not sure how much luck we'll have w
  20. One down already, & it's the one that will shock the most: http://www.diamondselecttoys.com/store.asp...ategoryID%3D335 Such an amazing wave. Such a cool figure. If DST can't get retailer interest in Seven of Nine, there is no hope for anything besides TOS. I love TOS, but I'm very over Kirk & Spock figures. *sigh*
  21. Playmates released a statement saying the Bridge/Transporter pieces would be included in the second wave of International releases. Which is odd because aren't series 2 already supposed to be coming with their own bridge pieces needed to complete the playset? So I guess we'd have to hope for a wave 3 to get all the final pieces. I'm going to order some sets from the US anyway.
  22. Wow! Elasti-Girl looks really cute.
  23. I actually think they look kinda funky. I wasn't a fan originally but these new shots look good. Perhaps I am too easy to please. I don't know if I'd buy anyway if the line is just Tracy. Do we know if they plan to include more characters? or do Shocker generally just do 'one off' releases?
