    Re: Toy Collecting Chit-Chat thread.

    Picked up my first two TRON Legacy figs today and was pondering something...
    Why are the series 2 figs (Quorra, Jarvis, Castor, etc) so hard to find? Was it a limited run like the Temple of Doom figs? The Dollar store where I picked up mine at just had the series 1 figs. Gonna see if the one big TRU has any TRON figs left one of these days.

    Castor never even showed up in those later case assortments. Basically, stores just ordered too much of Series 1, never sold them, so they never ordered more.

    The Vinylmation chat thread is locked up so I've nowhere else to share this

    They sure don't make Vinylmations like they used to. Quality control fail here!

    Re: Toy Collecting Chit-Chat thread.

    What other TRON Legacy 3.75" figs are there? Looking around online I noticed these that I don't have yet:
    Quorra
    Jarvis
    Deluxe Sam Flynn
    Deluxe CLU
    Deluxe Black Guard (with wings)
    And of course there is Castor, but apprently there were only 300 of him produced, according to this post:
    Post #8: Action Figure Insider • View topic - Tron Legacy 4" Castor - to what degree does it exist?
    According to a Spin Master employee on the tron-sector.com forums (look for posts by "wheat king"), Castor was never released to the public. He was supposed to be included in Series 2, but was held back for Series 3 due to an actor likeness issue. 300 figures were produced, pulled from cases, and given to employees or destroyed. The likeness issue was fixed and approved to go, but obviously Series 3 & 4 were canceled.

    One carded Castor figure was found a few weeks ago on eBay from a Chinese seller and is currently on its way to its lucky new owner. That's the only confirmed sighting so far.

    Several people claim to have seen him, but nobody that makes this claim has ever been able to back it up - I imagine it's just a false memory from seeing him on the cardbacks.

    Image from the eBay auction:
    So, I take it this is it? Any others I've missed? How about figs of Daft Punk? Kevin Flynn's Mom and Dad? The fat Incom Security Guard? Alan Bradley? Cillian Murphy?... nah I'm just kiddin'.

    It just occured to me that Winners could have a bunch of these figs by now. Gonna have to check them out.

    Yes, I've seen wave 17 in Target. You can also wait for next month's Matty sale as they'll offer each figure in the wave.

    Re: Toy Collecting Chit-Chat thread.

    Thanks guys for your answer I which my Target will get them in. I'm trying my best not to get anymore of them on the internet cause of the s/h plus the sales tax. So me trying to get them off Matty will not happen for me but thanks for the info Brand.

    Re: Toy Collecting Chit-Chat thread.

    Well it looks like the last wave, Wave 20 for DCUC is out on E-Bay from CA. But there is no way that I'm paying $30 for either Rev. Flash or Red Arrow. I'm sure that Cohete or Brand will not pay for them that much either but just like to let you guys know that Wave 20 is out.

    Wasn't expecting wave 20 so soon. I'll only buy it if I see it at Target since I bought a lot of extra DC figures at $7.99.

    One of my local Targets charges $19 for DCUC. I don't even want to pay that much for Sinestro or Dove, the only ones I want from wave 20.

    I don't have photos yet but I picked up 3 out of the 4 newly released Muppets Star Wars figure 2 packs at DL this past weekend. Got Sam/Obi-Wan + Gonzo/Vader (or Dearth Nadir) + Camilla Stormtrooper, Kermit/Luke + Miss Piggy/Leia, Fozzie/Chewie + Link/Han. The 4th set is Beaker/C3PO and Dr. Bunsen/R2.
