THE ACTION FIGURE THREAD (show off, review, trade, request, etc.)

I inquired about making this thread here since it doesn't actually deal with the SF comic, but since most of the collectors reside in this forum, and the topic would probably die pretty quick in GD I decided to make it here.

So with that out of the way feel free to post up pics of your collections, rare figures, etc. I'm interested in seeing what everyone else is and has been collecting. I'd also like to get a request or some sort of look out going for figures that people have been having a hard time finding. I come across shit all the time that I know people were looking for, but had forgotten when and exactly what topic they had asked in. Hopefully we can help each other out in that regard.

Well since the SOTA SF figures are the most talked about lately heres some pics of my current set up:

I really need to get a new camera soon, or perhaps learn to take better pics. :razz:


If anyone knows where I can get a Resaurus Player 1 Necro figure please let me know. Closest I got was a "Buy It Now" Only auction on ebay for $150.00.......a LITTLE too much I think.

    Looks pretty sharp. I have a couple of SF figures from the recent batch, but they are kind of stashed away somewhere until i get bored of the way my room is set up. It's pretty barren right now.

    Really awesome God of War poster though! I'd never seen that whole image before. Dude you should make some GoW combo videos. You still have capture equipment from back when you were making SFEX3 combos right? There are a lot of places where you can set up huge combos in GoW. Just an idea. I'm sure you could get it hosted on ComboVideos.com because they're always looking for unusual new content.

    Unfortunately I don't have my capture card anymore. :sad: You're right though, I should do some God of War vids. I can easily rack up hundred hit combos and I could probably do speed runs for God Mode and Challenge of the Gods. Heres some more God of War stuff I got:

    Some cool stuff. I like the GoW standee. Alas, my DMC3 Dante standee is superior (it's Dante...come on, you know he's cool).

    Unfortunately, most of my figures (SF, Advent Children, Naruto DX etc) are in storage as I currently don't have the space to put them anywhere. The only ones on display, and out of the box are my DMC Takara figures, a couple Naruto gashapon ones and the Marvel Classics Figurine Collection (where Doc Ock is seemingly doing something to me Sakura who is leaning on him...dirty Ock!)

    Thats cool, I'm a fan of DMC as well. But Dante over Kratos? C'mon now. The pretty boy could never take the brutal bad ass out. :razz:

    The standee you have, is it the same as the box art? I never saw a standee for DMC3 when it was in stores. I used to see this kick ass Dante statue with him sitting and resting his hands and chin atop Alastor while holding the shotgun. It was a bit pricey back then and even more so now.

    I just bought a player 1 resaurus necro to add to the others i have(ryu, ken,akuma, chun li, alex, vega).

    As for the Sota figs i just ordered a series 2 & 3 bundle(along with the necro).
    From sereis 1 I only have Bison, and Chun Li. Dose anybody know where I can get the white ryu, I cant find him anywhere(everybody's sold out).

    I'll post up pics of the Necro(and my other Resaurus figs) and my sota figs when I get them.

    There was also a online store which had white Ryu listed, but I emailed them and sure enough it was just lazy updates not taken care of. Ebay seems to be the best bet right now, I directed quite a few people to auctions ending late at night and they were able to sniper them last minute at good prices. Where did you get your Necro figure? I've seen only one ebay listing lately and the dude is asking $150.00 for it!

    I bought my Necro from a guy on a websit called he-man.org(its like the shoryuken for he-man:))
    I also bought my other resaurus figures from him, they are all in mint condition.
    I got the necro pretty cheap though because he no longer had the box for it.
    A friend of mine just bought a necro(in the box unopened) at a flea market, he knew i'd been lookin for one so he scooped it up for me for 45 bucks.
    He's coming over tommorow(he lives like 3hours away from me) and im gonna buy it from him for $50.
    If you interested when i get the necro thats dosent have a box i will post up pics of it and if you want i will sell it(or trade it) to you....

    PEACE.........

    I'm looking for an unopened one as well, thanks for the offer though, much appreciated.

    I have Necro, alas it is opened, but I still have the box (a little mashed though). I got mine for about £10 a little over a year ago. I'm surprised it's risen in value quite a bit.

    And yep, the standee is of the cover. That popular pic of him holding Rebelion on his shoulder.

    I've also seen that Dante statue you're speaking of. I so want to get it, but £180 is just too damn expensive and there's lots of stuff I'm looking to get (Dirge of Cerberus OST, KHII OST etc). Besides, I'm pretty sure I could do better than £180. Still, it is one awesome looking statue. Still need to get that Dante action-figure actually. But, more importantly, why wont they make a Vergil one?! I'd much rather have Vergil (one of the main reasons I got the Japanese promo poster for DMC3 and have like 4 UK ones).

    Now that Christmas is over with I was able to reclaim the fireplace mantle where I displayed most my figures until I can actually get my display shelves. It's filled to the rim with all 3 rounds of Street Fighter, a few ML X-Men, some Berserk figures as well as Master Chief and Kaiyodo's Gungrave and Gazelle the Peacemaker.

    What's killing me is that I have like 15 medium sized boxes between myself and my wife that's filled with figures and collectibles sitting in storage that I want to get out.
    You know, if you watch Jaws backwards, its about a shark that throws up so many people... they have to open a beach.

    Thanks de BLOO.

    I know exactly of the DMC statue you guys speak of - I used to work for the company that produced it, and the action figures. Yamato had protoypes of Series 2 shown at SDCC'05 showing Virgil and a smaller version of that same statue. Nice looking stuff but Kaiyodo (or was it Kotobukiya) already showed prototypes of their DMC action figures (which look far superior). Looks like 2006 is going to be a DMC kind of year!

    The original one? I think the set had the girl and one of the marionettes? If thats the Dante figure you're talking about he's up there too. See him online for $50.00 and up. I also see him time to time at conventions for about the same. I grabbed one for myself a while back, EB was blowing them out for $2.99 each, I should have snagged all that they had. :bluu:

    A Kotobukiya Dante would be sweet, definately gonna snag one of those if that is in fact the company doing it. I got their Darth Maul and also a Ryu Hayabusa from Ninja Gaiden, PERFECT in every detail.

    I have all the DMC figures, I didn't realize that Dante was going for that much. I even have all three Marionettes still in package that I'm waiting to open up and display. I bought mine directly from my work luckily because I never once seen a Dante figure on the pegs.

    The DMC figure that Kotobukiya (possibly) is producing is a fully-articulated figure, not a statue figure like Toycom's were. Looks to be based off DMC3 Dante too. Saw lot o' shoulder, elbow and torso joints so it should rock.

    Shin Gouki.....pre-ordered 2 months ago. :bgrin:

    I still don't know why they made the original colors as variants, but oh well. They also got lazy and didn't make a "Shin Gouki" text or pic for his package. :tdown:

    $50? wow, I've not seen it that high on eBay ever. About $20 is the most I saw one.

    Hey, you got any pics of a Vergil one? I really want to get a Vergil one badly. He rocks!

    Need some help guys, I have an idea and I was wondering if you could post up some opinions, or even answers for that matter. I decided to get an extra SOTA Sakura and have it repainted to truly look like Dark Sakura. I have this one image here for a color reference, but I wanted to get some exacts before I go ahead and start.

    http://img417.imageshack.us/img417/15/mshvsfdsak17on.gif

    Ok...

    1. The skirt and collar, should I do them dark gray or black?

    2. The hair, leave it as is in the package, or should it be darker?

    3. Her skin, is it supposed to be tan, or should I darken it up even further to have that slight red to it?

    4. Do I leave her eyes or do I color them in solid red like Evil Ryu?

    Trying to get this as accurate as possible so feel free to nitpick and go into detail with any answers. I know it's kinda cheating and it's not a real variant, but after seeing that Shin Gouki has no original text or pic I decided to add a Dark Sakura to my collection.

    Also threw in some shots of Resident Evil figures as they are a) CAPCOM related and b) Infested Jester's such a big fan. Hope you guys like.

    Its strange how Necro P1 being so high in value. Was that after Street Fighter III was released on PS2 and XBox? I remember paying £4 (which is less then $10) when the old Forbidden Planet in New Oxford Street was an outlet store, used for getting rid of older stock.

    Anyone collect figures other then Street Fighter?

    To answer your questions on Dark Sakura:

    1) I would go for dark grey, unless you use a very matt black. Black paint on figures tend to end up being glossy and thats not the way they should look.
    2) Darker skin tone, she is "Dark Sakura" after all, hahaha.
    3) I'm not 100% sure what you mean but I would make distinct parts a darker colour. Do you have the "Dark Ryu" figure? Something similar to the way the skin tone is used might work (although the face isn't really touched up on that figure)
    4) The two heads she comes with have a light, positive expression on them so maybe painting them solid red may be best? I don't know, there's barely much source material based on her, its hard to say whats accurate.

    Sweet, nice figures, thanks for the Dark Sakura info also. Heres some of my RE set up, I wanna get my Toy Biz RE figures out next, gotta rearrange to make some room first though.

    Also don't forget, http://www.cornerstorecomics.com/ has RE4 Series 2 up for pre-order, 4 variants on the Los Illuminados figure too. :tup:

    Ah, I'd do anything to get the last 3 RE Palisades figures. I'm missing Zombie Cop + Licker, Alexia and RE1 Tyrant. I've gone on eBay so many times but always miss out. Those vinyl and resin statues are nice looking, did you get the Nemesis resin bust?

    I forgot to mention that along with those figures I showed, I also have the 12" Claire Redfield CV DRAGON figure, RE4 Jacketed Leon and SOTA SF Ryu 9" all kept in box (kept seperate from the display)

    Anybody get any of the latest Street Fighter/CAPCOM/Biohazard gashapon and trading figures from Japan? The only thing I managed to get were Street Fighter Heroines, 2.5" mini-busts of Chun Li, Cammy, Sakura, R.Mika and Karin.

    Yeah I got the Nemesis bust, and also the resin Claire holding the gun downward. I never knew how expensive those Palisades RE figures were until SMB pointed it out to me. I had just pre-ordered all the sets when they were available. I think I'm still missing the CV Zombie variant, comes with an alternate camo pattern. I did get the EB Exclusive Nemesis with the tentacle coming out of his hand, the Zombie Cop variant in the blue uniform, Wesker with the no sunglasses head attached inside the package, and the bloodied Leon and Claire figures.

    I'll try and dig them out this week for pics, I managed to get these unreleased resin RE statues, one is a Licker kinda crawling on one hand, about 12 inches long without the tongue attached, and another of Marvin the zombie, I think he's the one in RE2 that you meet when you first get to the RPD Station.

    I've been keeping an eye out for Palisades RE figures as of late, I'll be sure to post any findings on here ASAP for those looking.

    It should be for sale on Sota's website any day now, but don't confuse her with the EXCLUSIVE Round 3 Black Sakura Variant on their website that's a whole different Sakura. ;)

    Yeah I saw that one, it doesn't look like they changed that much though, skin looks SLIGHTLY darker and thats it. :xeye:

    My friend Shinji pointed this out to me recently, as EX fans its near impossible to find anything figure related, or anything realated to the series. However he found this:

    http://www.ebay.com.hk/viItem?ItemId=6024737191

    Normally I'd jump on this in a second, but considering the price and quality I'm not 100% sure yet. Looks like they went with the EX2 version of Kairi, but how could I pass up this oppurtunity to purchase a model of Goukis killer? :smile: Decisions decisions.
