Also pictured here is one that wasn't in any movie.  :spiteful: Can you tell which it is and where it came from? :pardon:

That Xenomorph right there, which is clearly based on the suits used in Aliens... except the skull's not exposed.

Well, you got me on a technicality, but I was actually referring to the one above Big Chap that's from Alien Isolation. You're right though, the one above is a prototype for Aliens, but Cameron chose to leave the skull exposed instead.  Personally, I like this one better.  Why would they suddenly have exposed sk... no.  Wait.  Don't start applying logic to the Alien franchise.

Btw, that "newborn" from Rez is downright LEWD!  I was planning on displaying it at work, but it's a bit nsfw.  I was also disappointed that it doesn't have human eyes like it does in the movie.

Digging this.  There's something about obscure toys that I really like.  Or even obscure versions of toys.  I'm a vintage collector and I have a fair number of Convertors, the trashy second- to second-rate Gobots that never made it to fabled 80's toy lore.  They just languished in the dustbin of collecting history, but seem to be gaining momentum these days.  Not saying this is trashy, but obviously different from the MetalBuild and Fix Fig lines, both high end.

Yes! Achievement unlocked!  :yahoo:

I've been wanting -- nay, needing this rare bird ever since I became aware of its existence:

vf-x-box-jpg.28402665

vf-xa-jpg.28402663

vf-x-behind-jpg.28402662

vf-x-gerwalk-jpg.28402664

vf-x-fighter-jpg.28402661

It's proven difficult to find (at least, at a decent price), but my collection wouldn't be complete without it!  :D

I mean, technically they did, but only the display model to advertise their kit version.

I think the only three Yammies I never got are the VFX, Angelbirds, and Cavaliers, but I only really regretted the VFX.  Of course then I went and compensated by buying too many of all the rest of them. :lol:

I love that 2b statue, but the DX version is way overpriced now. I've been thinking about getting a 1/6 figure instead.

I regret not getting the DX mainly for the Pod but ill live. Dont feel like spending $250+ just to get the DX and they trying to sell this one.

And I rarely buy WWE figures but saw this and couldn't pass it up

Nice.  I saw that Monster Truck Dodge Charger but didn’t get it.  I would love to get a Bigfoot from the line.  Cool Ultimate Warrior.

Whoa, did they not make the Tornado's wings functional?  I guess I can understand it due to the wing pylons, but a little sad nonetheless.

Yeah.  I’m glad that the F-14 at least has functional wings.

My F/A-18E should be coming in within a week.

Yeah, I got it because General Lee even though no flag on top. I have a ton of Gravediggers and Big Foot from earlier lines.

Definitely grabbing 37, just picked up the Hornet from CDJapan a moment ago.  I need to keep closer tabs on those release dates!

I like it when 2 different releases can be put together in one order.

I saw 2 of them today.  If I see it again I might pick it up and get the free Hot Wheel with it.

I’ll let you know when your order comes in.

My 2 Emma Frosts and Clone Commander Obi-Wan should be coming in Friday.

Cool! Yeah, I got the HW bike for free with the Monstewr Truck purchase. I think The Truck itself was on sale too.
