I started collecting action figures a few months after SDCC 2009, which makes this SDCC the first one that i anticipated. After seeing the announcements over the past few week, I realized that...


not only that, i'm also hoping that the figs that i want will reach our shores, and if ever they do..i'm praying that they won't be hoarded. 2 action figures on my to get list are pretty much 3x their initial price (MU Archangel and Warpath). Anyway, here's the things that caught my eyes from the SDCC stuff..

this list won't even include the figures I already knew about pre-SDCC. Plus i still have some comics to buy, both current and back issues. PLUS the figures i'm still backtracking..WOW.

I'll be more broke than broke..i'll be broker.

1. MU Comic 2pack Wolverine/Capt. America - i'll get this but i won't really be happy, both figs are almost straight repaints. I'm not sure but i think the Wolverine is using the same body as the 2pack Wolverine/Hand Ninja body which has a shorter neck and smaller belly. The Capt. Am shield here also has a claw scratch if i'm correct. I'll probably split the set with a Capt. Am collector.

2. MU X-23 - New body sculpt, probably one that fits a teenage girl. This one was announced during SDCC but no picture has yet to be released. So here's X-23..

3. MU First Appearance Wolverine - I admit i was surprised with this one, though it does look nice. It's a new had sculpt that uses the XMO Tigerstripe Wolverine with different shoulder pads.

4.. MU X-Force 3-Pack Wolverine/Warpath/Deadpool - I'll be real happy if i can get my hands on this since i'll finally be able to have a Warpath. Plus Wolverine is Wolverine, though i really hope they fix the shoulderpads (remove it). In terms of storyline this doesn't make sense since Warpath was with the pre-heroic age X-Force and Deadpool will be part of Uncanny X-Force. On a business stand point, this makes sense since DP is just a repaint of the XMO Deluxe DP, Wolverine is a kitbash of sorts with a new head (i think) and Warpath is exactly the same.

5. Web Of Spider-Man Heroclix: Brown Wolverine, X-Force Wolverine, X-Force Warpath, X-Force X-23 - I don't know, there's something about the Heroclix that makes me overlook the crappy paint and see something in it. I guess it has a certain appeal. Can't find a clear picture of the Brown one but it's pretty much the same as the X-Force Wolverine..

6. HML 2-pack X-Force Warpath/Deadpool - i prefer this one over the X-Men variant. I'm sure to get the Warpath but I'm still not sure on the Deadpool, if i do get him i will repaint him into X-Force colors. Assuming i get my hands on this pack of course.

7. Minimates Uncanny X-Force Boxset (Wolverine, Psylocke, Fantomex, Deadpool, Archangel) - I'm not really sure yet if this will be an exclusive or a general release. I'm really hoping that this will be a general release so I can at least complete all the released X-Force figures in one line.

Those that I'm not sure about..
- MU Comic 2-pack Daken/Dark Spider-Man - I'm not really that into the character of Daken, probably because eversince his debut he's been shoved to the spotlight. But that's not the reason why i might overlook this comic pack even though it'll be the first Daken figure..the body. The only reason that you can say that this is Daken is because of the tattoos. The body is too bulky, Daken is more lean than muscular and yet they're using Wolverine's body in this one. If possible, i think they should have used Spidey's body instead.

- Minimates AoA Boxset: Weapon X - I'll probably just get this one if i happen to run into it somehow..I'm not really completing the minimate wolverines but i do find them cute. I'll get this if it's a regular release and if i have someone to split the set with.

- Minimates 90s X-Men Boxset: Shirtless Wolverine - Everything i said about the AoA Weapon X minimate? pretty much the same goes for this one too..

- Kotobukiya X-Force Wolverine Statue - I'm about 70% sure that I want this one, the only reason I can't be a hundred percent is that i really prefer the Bowen Museum pose which means I might not have enough money to buy something this expensive, and that something about the torso sculpt bothers me. It's not as evident compared to how it looks in the Tigerstripe but it's still there.

I'm GLAD i don't like:
- Wolverine Berserker Rage Life Size bust - i know that this is only a prototype shot, but something about this bust just doesn't seem right to me. If given a choice i'd prefer the Alex Ross Lifesize bust released a long time ago. I think it might be the eyes being unemotional while the face is full of rage.

Of course, I'm hoping all the things that I want will reach our shores at SRP and that they won't be hoarded...or at least i'll get to them first before the hoarders do.
