    I opened mine, and I have four different versions of the new Hellboy.

    I buy the toys to play, not the boxes to display.

    Yeah just cracked mine open and put it next to my movie Hellboy figure (the Anung un Rama one, with the long horns) that I got for my birthday when the movie came out.

    I asked the retailer to put away Lobster Johnson for me, so that one's going to be added... and I think I want the other figures as well.

    My dream is to have the entire core B.P.R.D. team on my desk :)

    After the next wave, due in fall 06, Kate and Abe will be the only ones missing.

    Yeah, there's gotta be a series three with Abe, Daimio and Kate. And preferably some frog monsters as well!

    The third series is (if I remember correctly), Abe, Ghost of Rasputin, Frog Monster and Anung un Rama Hellboy.

    Yeah, but is it stated that it's the Ghost of Rasputin and not just regular Rasputin?

    Two new arrivals today..and I believe they have become my favorites...

    It would have been great if they came with bonus pack-in figures, like a beat up Spoiler for Black Mask and a few prostitutes for Penguin...

    I hate Black Mask because I always forget that he's white.

    A panel will just show his hands/forearms and I'll think "whose are those".

    I used to have an entire Corona 48 pack of glass bottles box full of Action figures rangeing from Iron Man to Spider-Man to X-Men and Spawn. AND a 12 inch Apacolypse and the huge 12 inch Sentinal I have beat the shit out of my smaller figures.

    And a few 12 Inch Power rangers i called in for back up. :oops:

    So anyway my mom threw them all away. :shock:

    So I am now rebuilding my action figure collection.

    Here is a pic of all the figures i have been able to gather with limited funds.

    Now this is a pic i made fucking around with photoshop trying to get it to not look so red. (at the time i couldnt get flash to work)

    I call it Daredevil vision.

    Now, Toyfare cancelled this exclusive; I guess Capcom didn't want bloody figures coming out. This retailer somehow got a few cases of them and sold them off, though. It's pretty sweet; I don't know that I'll be opening it because of its perceived rarity, though.

    If you dont open toys, sell them to someone who will enjoy them to their fullest. Keeping stuff in the box is so retarded, unless you actually sell the stuff, in which case the people who buy your shit are retarded.

    Lets just say she is tending her garden now. FOREVER.

    YEa. She said she did it because they were pifures of the devil. Same reason she would burn my comics and any of my comics related artwork.

    I can enjoy it on my wall ... I have a few opened Ryus and a Sagat already. I just got the bloody versions because I wanted them a while back. I'll be honest; I think I can unload it for a few bucks later down the line as well.

    Maybe it's just me...but i was looking around for that Penguin figure posted on page 7.... ended up looking at this statue of batman...he just seems...too ripped? His chest seems flat and he has an insane amount of upper body muscles. I dunno, doesn't seem right.
    5313_a_full.jpg

    But Hawkman in the same collection looks good....same problem with the crazy muscles but it works somehow a little better. I could just be crazy...it is pretty late at night and i'm tired.

    well, they will only be 2.5" in height, so it shouldn't be too bad.

    EDIT - Bah, the new GL figures are delayed till August.

    Oh, same here...those series 2 should be good.

    The other one I like, though I'm not as big of a fan of Jon Stewart, is this Justice League one:

    4505_a_full.jpg

    It has more of the modern cartoon look to it compared to those ones above...but I still look forward to it.

    Im not 100% on this since I havent read much John Stewart (Jon is the guy on the Daily Show) I think his look in the cartoon was based on his comic costume, and thats pretty much as he's always look. I dont think he ever had the beard or shaved head in the comics though.

    Hey guys, I'm a huge comic book nerd, but I haven't bought any figures since the late 90's, and I just want to thank everyone who's posted in this thread. I've been living vicariously through all of you and I get all excited every time someone posts a new pic.

    Most of my stuff is pretty beat up from some heavy use, but I have alot of fun things. Three different versions of Wolverine, including the first one where his claws popped out of his hands, two versions of Cable, Cyclops (alright, so I liked the X-Men), some Robotech figures, and a ton of Transformers from the original run from the first TV show.

    Now that I've seen all of the new stuff that's around, I've been checking my wallet and planning my next trip to the store, lol. I'm sure my girlfriend would rather I didn't read things that encourage me to spend money. ;)
