A couple of weeks ago there was an Are you a completist? Thread on here.  With that in mind, what figures are in your collection that you bought basically out of habit and really don't care about.  In other words, when you look at your collection, what items scream out..."What were you thinking?"

Chief on this list for me are the Justice armored figures....why?

Great topic AQ.

For me it has to be the Crapsbro Marvel Legends "White Queen". Easily the fucking ugliest action figure ever. How they turned a hottie like Emma into that monstrosity is a question for the ages. It's not just the horrid face, but those ridiculous hips make it look like she's wearing a giant diaper/nappy.

Rogue is my favourite female hero and that figure they did in the Marvel Legends X-Men boxed set always makes me think of The Simpsons episode where Homer invents the shotgun that applies make-up.

100% spot on Fishy! You can throw Scarlett Witch into that mix as well.

Which is odd since the factory proto looked pretty good.

Yeah, he's probably the figure in my collection I hate looking at the most.  Hoping he gets a redo in the ML relaunch next year.

Sticking with Marvel Legends, the buck used for Black Panther / Wonder Man / Captain Britain etc, with the ginormous shoulders, gets odder looking all the time.  Thumbs Down

Especially when you realise that those three characters are three different heights.

I liked them. Cry

Truth be told i was miffed that there were several characters in their usual Costumes that were not released.But i also would have been happy if they did more of the Armoured versions too to round out those variations from the story.


Not that I own one.....but the movie Hulk riding a quad bike just cracks me up.

One of my WTF Toys is similar,JLU Flash on a Motorbike.I never quite figured that one out.Bit like the Vehicles for Superman in the Super Powers line.

I got two World of Warcraft monsters on an impulse because I thought they looked cool. Now, I have no idea what to do with them.

NECA Jonah Hex. I bought into the hype surrounding the movie and got him as an impulse buy. Now everytime I walk by he just...stares at me with those dead eyes. Total waste of money...but at least I didn't splurge on the set (shudder)

Anyone remember the Toy Biz Lex Luthor? Press the action button on his back, and he hits himself in the head.
