Nice stuff Brandon! I have to admit I'm not familiar with the Shadows of the Empire.
Was it a TV series?

This forum is not alone with the number of views compared with comments. I'm a
member of three forums, and they are all the same. Tons of views with little comments.

So don't let that get you down.

Just know that a lot of people are looking! Even if they don't comment.

Daryl

Thanks a lot Daryl Smile  No, SOTE was a novel that got huge publicity in 95 and throughout the 90s it spawned one of greatest musical scores ever, action figures, comics and video games! It was SWs' first time back in major form since ROTJ in 83. It was never made into a movie sadley and now since Disney took over it is no longer cannon and is legends now. I have been so ticked off about it ever since Mad

So, it was early August, I wanted to continue get some figures that I needed for My older collections. Thanks goodness I had some funds. I saw some great deals on Amazon & eBay of stuff that I wanted for a very long time, basically 26 or so years Surprised Figures that I wasn't able to get when I was much younger. So here is My great goods that I recently got Exclamation

ALIENS: Action Masters 4 Pack: Yes, as you have seen earlier on in the topic, it was My personal mission to get further completion of Kenner's Aliens, Predators and Marines figures. Now, this Aliens Action Masters four Pack were some figures that completely alluded Me back...way back when. These were available in 1994 and apparently thru 1997. I don't ever recall seeing these figures at a Toys"R"Us, a K-B Toys or any where else for that matter. I believe I discovered these guys in the very late 90s or early 2000s on the web, possibly a Tomart ad or some random action figure review page. I believe these figures weren't that popular back in the day which search Me why if that was indeed the case :?  Anyway, these figures are made by Kenner whom made the standard Aliens, Marines and Predator figures. I had opened these guys up and I absolutely love them. These Action Masters are a mixture of rubber & metal which really remind Me of Tonka's great Willow figures back in 88 that I featured in My great Vintage Action Figure Topic!! In fact, I believe like many things and times, Hasbro borrowed if you will this concept from the originator which was Tonka that they bought out along with Kenner Rolling Eyes With exceptions these figures could be in scale with them Surprised All of the Xenomorphs has a point of articulation via their neck. They are all sculpted & painted really well for their small, 2" scale and especially for the era. They also include 4 exclusive trading cards that I just digg. I love the bios on the backs of them. The blister card is rather nice with good art and a cool checklist plus a special offer of the other figures within the series. I wouldn't mind to get all of them one day in the future but right now I'm just hoping to get The Predator and The Terminators. One sweet serendipitous aspect of the whole set is that the Ovomorph is actually in scale with the regular figures so I will be displaying it with them from time to time. These figures all connect to each other via their bases. Look for My entire AvPvM collection plus these great new acquisitions in My great Vintage Action Figure Topic! when I get to the 90s to be featured in a major showcase Shocked

STAR TREK! For a long time I was looking at My Star Trek figures by Playmates and I realized that My collection was good but wasn't as complete as I'd like it to be. I stopped collecting them in 94/95 which was really foolish but I made up for big time. I didn't want any variants, just the characters I needed to make My display and collection for plentiful. I actually was missing some important and key characters. I have always had a soft spot for Playmates and in fact they were arguably My fave company of all next to Kenner, Hasbro and McFarlane. By studying these figures I come to realize how great and realistic these depictions are and in fact I believe they were only beaten when Mcfarlane came around...that's how tremendous I think these figures are. Another cool fact is with exceptions, they are in scale with Kenner's AvP series' which is great but not with Star wars though. One thing is I was very rusty on is the scale, these are 4 55" to 5", you gotta watch out because Playmates made some figures 6" to 7" tall that angered fans and collector's a like so if I wouldn't have done My research I would have been dumbfounded and quite frankly, upset and disgusted because their not in scale therefore would totally mess up that realism of realistic heights that I love! Another thing is these are cheap, much cheaper than I imagined and I'm glad of it. Now get this, I got 2 or 3 of these tremendous vintage figures for the price of the current markets 1 Star Wars Black or AEW or Marvel Legends among others...the price points in this whatever day and age era we're in now is so ridicules...I find these just as good if not better than those offered currently and so much funner too! I mean look at the packaging and overall what you get...need I say anymore? OK, here is whom I picked up so far Exclamation

Deana Troi & Dr. Crusher: I needed the two first lovely ladies of TNG!

The DataLore Twins: Lore & Professor Data! I needed Data but realized I needed his brother too. I got Prof. Data because he was the cheapest to get and besides, I love this alternate version!

Now here is an extremely special set that I needed very much. For Me it had a similar origin like My ALIENS: Action Masters 4 Pack: seen above. Here it is!

Micro Machines Star Trek Collectors's Set by Galoob! I loved Micro Machines back in the day of the late 80s thru mid 90s. I thought they were so much funner than Mattel's Hot Wheels. I just didn't get cars and among other vehicles, I got a lot of epic Star Wars Micro Machines back in 95 - 96. Like Tonka & Kenner, Hasbro bought Galoob as well Rolling Eyes So, for the longest time I kept on thinkin' I need those Star Trek Micro Machines to be with you and to crossover in an epic display! I am so impressed with these and how detailed they are how and great their sculpting is! Like the Playmates Star Trek figures, I have always loved Micro Machines packaging and companies don't make anything this grand anymore!

Congratulations on a successful conclusion to a quarter century long search!

I remember how enthusiastically you wrote about the Willow figures. I'm glad you seem to like these nearly as much. It's fantastic when the results of a long search live up to expectations!

The Vina the Orion Slave Girl fig looks pretty cool. "Animal Woman," they call her on the package. I guess "slave girl" was not considered appropriate even back in the late '80s and early '90s. I'm pretty sure that "Animal Woman" wouldn't fly today, either.

The "Ilia" fig makes me laugh! I haven't thought about the first Star Trek movie (Star Trek: The Motion Picture) in a long time. Years ago, after a few more films had been made, most everybody I knew referred to the first film as "the one with the bald-headed chick."
Razz

A friend of mine got his Playmates Toys Tasha Yar figure autographed by actress Denise Crosby a few years ago at a convention. Apparently nobody else has asked her to sign an action figure. He said she held it up and said to the fans waiting in line, "Look at this! Even Meryl Streep doesn't have her own action figure!"

Thanks Daryl Smile

Thanks a lot SCU, I'm glad you remembered about My Willow selection. yes, them guys are dear and these Aliens are just as good. Yes, it took a long time but was able to get them Shocked You might be right about the Animal Woman. Yes, Ilia was so different back then but I liked her and really accepted her uniqueness and her figure is no different, she is very sweet. Cool trivia bit about Tasha, thanks SCU Very Happy
