It kills me that you're dressed just like the figure!
So this is the thread where we post about the toys, yes? Because I scored this (Conan the Indomitable)and this (Conan of Cimmeria) on my day off yesterday.
Marvel Legends Series 7 is hitting the shelves and for me the interest is on Ghost Rider. ML 3 had the Dan Ketch GR but this series has the bad ass Johnny Blaze style GR. You can remove the kooky front off the bike from the classic GR. Looks pretty good.
[EDIT] Also, I was at Meijer's getting catfood last week and I scored the Tusken Raider Unleashed figure. Wait til I show you a pic of that. You'll flip. Best Tusken Raider figure ever.

The one about the fucking hairdresser, the space hairdresser and the cowboy. The guy, he's got a tin foil pal and a pedal bin. His father's a robot and he's fucking fucked his sister. Lego! They're all made of fucking lego.

I want a Constantine action figure. I assume they're not widely available, eh?

"The Doctor remembers every Doctor Who story ever told. Every episode, Target book, comic strip and every game of companions and TARDISes that you played as a kid. The universe he lives in has no record of it, because paradoxes and divergent dimensions and the Time War have reset things... but the Doctor remembers and sometimes when he is sad it's because you've stopped being 8 years old and he can't run around the school playground with you anymore."

I just got back from the comic shop where I scored this Uncle Frank from Neca's Hellraiser line of figures. Also scored this female cenobite to go along with Chatterer and Butterball and of course Pinhead. So now I have the original four, plus Uncle Frank, and I'm good on Hellraiser for a while.

Y'all like those Hellraiser figures or what? I love that Uncle Frank, he's my favorite.

Haven't actually worn that coat in nearly a year now, which explains why it needs a wash

Anyway, this is a wonderful series, and I'm eternally in Rogan's debt for bringing it to my attention.

Lou, have you seen the McFarlane's Twisted Land of Oz figures?

Or is that an offensive question?

It may be because the switchblade played an integral part in Julia's seduction. Creepy. NECA made a skinless Julia but it's packaged in gauze so a Mint-On-Card collector like myself has no use for it. You want skinless? You gotta remove it from the package, see?
Yes, I have. They are quite grand. I like only one or two but that is a series that deserves to be collected in it's entireity so I backed off. I did hook up on Monsters 3: 6 Faces of Madness and will gladly post pics of all aforementioned series if you like.
Or is that an offensive question?
Star Wars was the very first action figure I ever collected. I could tell you some stories of me and Charlie as small childeren, each strapped with an Obi Wan figure, him with an X Wing and me with a TIE Fighter, dogfighting around the old X Mas tree knowing full on that Obi Wan ain't flown shit (at least not in his older years).
These days I get my jollies from Star Wars Unleashed, which are bigger and more detailed versions of your standard SW figure fare. Unforyunately more expensive, too, and released in minimal enough numbers to warrant high prices and much scalping. Very popular nonetheless.

On another message board, we tried guessing what figures they customized for these. Obviously, Allah's a no brainer...but what about the others?
