*****I'M BUYING TOY COLLECTIONS! WANT TO SELL YOURS? CONTACT ME NOW!!******



That's right-- I am currently buying toys and toy collections.

I am looking mainly for larger collections. Star Wars, GI Joe, Transformers, Marvel Legends... New and old! Current and vintage!

Got a large collection of stuff that's been sitting in your garage for years? I want it!

Got some stuff that would just be too much of a hassle to post on eBay and pack and ship? Sell it to me in one large sum!

Email me your list of stuff at stinsmanart@gmail.com and let's talk!

TOY NEWS FOR 5/6/2016 - HOT TOYS - UPCOMING STAR WARS FIGURE TEASERS

I can only imagine that Hot Toys' Star Wars line can pretty much go on forever, but so far, they've only focused on A New Hope and The Force Awakens...

Speaking to that point, there will be a few new figures based on TFA and Hot Toys revealed two teaser images yesterday, one featuring a 1/4 scale Kylo Ren and the other revealing upcoming figures of Han and Chewie in the 1/6 scale.



Neither of those come as a huge surprise, but what does is the next teaser image-- Yoda from Empire Strikes Back!


Hopefully we'll be seeing more of these figures soon!

TOY NEWS FOR 5/6/2016 - HOT TOYS - CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR - BLACK WIDOW

I was lucky enough to see Captain America: Civil War last night and let me tell you, it was absolutely awesome! I can not wait to see it again!

Of course as a Marvel film, you can expect to see just about every character represented in Hot Toys' 1/6 scale figure line and the next one announced is the Black Widow.













She'll be released around Nov for $219.99

TOY NEWS FOR 5/6/2016 - HASBRO - MARVEL LEGENDS - "6 CIVIL WAR 3-PACK

Just announced yesterday is this upcoming Marvel Legends 3-Pack featuring Captain America, Iron Man and Spider-Man from the Civil War film-- which was AMAZING, by the way.

Cap and Iron Man will be the same as the standard release figures except for some by spray "battle-damage" and the inclusion of the unmasked heads, but the Spider-Man is new and, of course, this is the only way to get him.



This set will be released in August for $59.99.

TOY NEWS FOR 5/6/2016 - HASBRO - 12" MARVEL LEGENDS - CAPTAIN AMERICA

Here are some official pictures of Hasbro's upcoming 12" Captain America figure.

I'm pretty excited for this line-- which will also include Spider-Man and Iron Man.


Cap should be out sometime this summer for $49.99

TOY NEWS FOR 5/6/2016 - MEZCO - ONE:12 COLLECTIVE - DC COMICS THE FLASH and GREEN ARROW

This should be a pretty big year for Mezco's One:12 Collective line-- and I for one seriously hope that it does well. I'd love to see this line continue and see where it goes. Mezco is taking a leap of faith with this line and it is truly unique among US based toy lines. No one else out there is doing a high-end collector line of 6" scale figure featuring real cloth uniforms, alternate hands, heads and a slew of accessories.

Coming in October are DC Comics' The Flash and Green Arrow. Both look fantastic and are sure to please DC and toy fans alike.

















Both figures will retail for $75 each and, as mentioned, are due out in October.

TOY NEWS FOR 5/6/2016 - MEZCO - ONE:12 COLLECTIVE - STAR TREK - EXCLUSIVE LIMITED EDITION SPOCK FROM PILOT EPISODE "THE CAGE"

If you're more of a hardcore Star Trek fan then you probably know-- and have seen-- the pilot episode of the show called "The Cage".

In this pilot, the only character that went on to the regular series was Mr. Spock. I did like The Cage a lot. It's definitely a Star Trek episode filled with all the usual themes of the series, but it features Captain Pike in the captain's chair and Majel Barrett as "Number One"-- a moniker that was revived on Next Generation as Picard called Riker "Number One".

Spock wasn't quite yet the Spock we'd know him to be as he's a lot more human like in this episode and he even smiles in a few scenes.

Mezco is releasing this limited-edition figure of Spock in their One:12 Collective line from that pilot episode.

He was originally priced at well over $100, but they have lowered the price (presumedly due to low sales because of the original, outrageous price) to $89.99.

They are calling this a "limited time sale", so go an grab him here now if you want one.
