Especially for [livejournal.com profile] owensheart!

I never watched "Buffy" or "Angel" but I keep buying their figures as they are so much fun! Here we have "Ice Cream Xander". He comes with an ice cream cone, a scoop, a plate of cheese - and a single heart! (which I already used in the Ed in lab scene)
I also got this Muppets popcorn stand. It may come in handy on a fair or maybe the Gotham circus (if we ever get a Jerome figure)

Throwback Thursday: Some figures from my childhood in East Germany. The mechanic and fireman are similar to Playmobil, having hands that can grab accessories.

The others are just made from gum. A ship captain & a police man at the left, at the right a taylor (from the fairytale?) & a robber and the two guys in the middle are Moritz and Max from the Wilhelm Busch Max & Moritz comics. No idea if they are known outside of Germany: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Max_and_Moritz

With all those figures, I have no idea who the maker is, where are they from or if there are more, but I have known them all my childhood. I actually also had several of these mice, everyone called them Mickeymouse but at the time I had no idea why! That picture is from the net, not mine. No idea where mine are. I had white, yellow, brown and green.

[livejournal.com profile] hamsterwoman Are these the same mice we once talked about?

I thought today would be a good day to introduce the Re-ment Pose skeleton. This guy is very small, about 3,5" but has a lot of joints. He is actually the so called "big" guy, there is an even smaller one and also a child, and there are dinosaur skeletons and a dog and cow and lots of tiny accessories. A desk and laptop and tie for example, medical gear, table and chair, music instruments, whatever a figure needs! Whole japanese rooms also. The japanese swords I recently got for Malcolm also were from this line. But most would be too small to use for bigger figures. Still, I thought he might be fun to have around!

I want to introduce the rest of the wave 4 Arrow figures. Malcolm Merlyn already got a post of his own here and here is now the rest. Arrow season 3, Laurel as Black Canary and Reverse Flash. Next wave will have Arrow in season 4 costume (they keep giving him a new costume every season and we keep buying new figures ;) ) and Flash from season 2 with the white symbol on his chest.

I am afraid that I won't buy anything from the announced wave after that. Have a look here if you are interested: http://www.tvinsider.com/article/92927/dc-collectibles-action-figures-supergirl-firestorm-hawkgirl-constantine-zoom/
Not one "normal" person. No Dr. Wells, no Cisco, no Caitlin, I wouldn't say no to Joe or Iris either. But instead we get all those superheroes in their costumes, from all the CW shows: Firestorm, Hawkgirl, The Atom, Supergirl, Martian Manhunter, Vixen, Constantine. I guess I ought to get Zoom at least, but I really am not much into villains. I usually don't do fight pictures and I can't use any weird aliens for the funny comics I do. Ah well. Maybe next time.

On now with the introduction of those I did buy. See all pictures and details behind the cut!

Just putting this link here so I have it handy in case I need it. This woman is doing travel cases for dolls. Most awesome thing! I still won't travel with my figures to the UK though.

Kirk has finally beamed in. I am bringing you lots of pictures of all the great accessories he comes with, and I also have tried different poses and angles with the different hands. As expected, he is simply amazing. Everyone is saying that but it is still true. I also yet have to unwrap Spock. So much awesomeness! See it all behind the cut!

Look [personal profile] annejack!

It's San Diego Comic Con weekend and Quantum Mechanix have published pictures of their upcoming lines. I am posting just the TOS stuff, there is also Next Generation, Supernatural, Firefly and Justified.
And I'll get my Captain's Chair! Yay! For those that are wondering, Uhura and Chekov are in the making as well. The whole team.

They even got details like Bones' pinkie ring (it belonged to DeForest Kelley's mother and he never took it off) and Scotty's missing finger (James Doohan lost it in the Normandie) right:

Yeah, basically. This is one of the things of my flail post and what I am waiting to pre-order. And then it will take at least another half year to actually get.

I've avoided posting pictures of Jack so far (these are from a convention last November) as some of us felt that the face was a bit off. I have to agree, I don't see quite John Barrowman in there yet, and the reason is that they usually go for a neutral expression with their figures, so they can be used for more scenes. Just a little smirk would do wonders to him. They also said though that they are still working on the head and it was barely ready for the con. So I am confident that by the time it is finished, we will be blown away as usual. Also the actors are always hugely involved and it is only done with their approval.

Aside from all this, what also threw me, how young he looks! But of course it has been ten years already and unfortunately John is not a never aging immortal (although you wouldn't believe he is approaching 50 either)

From day one, when I ordered that first Eleventh Doctor, it was my biggest wish to get a Jack and I actually wrote it into the comments section.

More pictures of other planned figures (War Doctor, Eight Doctor, Rose, Ninth Doctor, Clara, Tenth Doctor in pyjama) here: Upcoming Big Chief Studios Figures

That was SO to be expected! I have Arrow in season 1 costume with paint at the eyes and season 1 bow, I have Arrow in season 2 costume - basically the same, only with eye mask and different bow, soon I'll get Arrow in season 3 costume which is a bit different and now the one from season 4 got announced. Plus Barry without hood. Yay!

So that means I'll have to wait till November to being able to faithfully re-create a certain scene involving Malcolm. (And I may have to start to number my Arrows to not confuse them LOL)

Look what I bought yesterday. Isn't that absolutely amazing?
My friend Saida gave me this link and at first I was confused. Because usually small figures (6") are made from plastic, large figures (12", like Barbie) have real clothes you can take off. But now this company makes small figures with real clothes! And the face is so realistic, it beats any other figure I have of Spock so far.

So even with this price - $70 - I just couldn't resist. Here you can read more about him but the link given at the page is only shipping to the US. There are other shops in the internet though that have him, I even managed to find a German one. He'll come out next April/May. I hope we soon will get a Kirk to go with him!
