Han Solo In Hoth Pursuit

  • Action Figure Insider has pics of Hasbro's 2011 Comic-Con exclusives. It looks like the unreleased Spider-Man with removable mask Mighty Mugg is finally seeing the light of day. So can we get the Deadpool Mugg in 2012 then? Hasbro's My Little Pony exclusive is not Friendship is Magic related which is a pretty good example of how to not strike when the iron is hot. Oddly absent from the group is the Marvel Legends Thor that had been announced at Toy Fair. That was the exclusive I was most looking forward to. Dang

  • In other Habro news, Galactic Hunter as pics of some upcoming Star Wars toys. There's the new mail away figure, prototype Boba Fett, which is just different enough from concept Boba Fett that it doesn't feel like a complete waste of time. There's also the new Ponda Baba figure in Vintage style packaging. Ponda is a favorite of mine and I'm lookin forward to this figure which has a removable arm and even interchangeable "flipper" and "furry" hands, to reflect the differing looks for the character. There's a bunch of other stuff including the Target exclusive "The Search for Luke Skywalker" battle pack which features Han in Hoth gear, a Rebel soldier and a Tauntaun. If this is meant to be Han's Tauntaun than I hope it features an opening stomach with guts squeezing out. Man, Star Wars is gross.

  • This is my 100th post about action figures, and that doesn't even include my hauls which because those fall under a separate tag. Let's hear it for my single minded obsession.
