Action Figure Heaven

If you’re ever in the St. Louis area, I highly encourage you to take some time to check out SAGA Toys.   I went by there again today and was in amazement of all the outstanding items available, and at some of the best prices I’ve seen.

They are located at: 7575 S Lindbergh Blvd, St. Louis, MO 63125 and they are open daily 9am-9pm.  Be sure to tell them the crew at Yakface sent ya!

Custom Playsets for Sale

Custom playset master EMPIRE has posted some awesome new 3.75″ custom playsets that can be purchased by clicking here.

Personal Note:  I’ve purchased a number of items from him over the past few years and have always been amazed by the quality and durability.  If you have been on the fence about these, I am confident that you won’t be disappointed if you add some of these items to your collection!

Make the Hobby Fun Again

Over the weekend, I stopped by a St. Louis based collector shop known as SAGA TOYS (great place, I highly recommend it), and was reminded of just how terrible the state of collecting Hasbro products has generally fallen over the past several years thanks to the awesome display of older TVC figures that SAGA TOYS has on their pegs.

Times are hard for collectors, and also for the retailers due to so many sublines of inferior product these days that appeal to fewer and fewer customers.  We are truly hoping that Hasbro rights the ship with a great TVC line that goes on for years, brings back the glory of background aliens and droids, has a nice variety of army builders (with alternate heads), throws in a healthy splash of OT goodness, brings back good case assortments with nice distribution, makes smart use of articulation without over-engineering the figures, and puts an MSRP on the line that doesn’t doom it out of the gate.

But is that really going to happen with Hasbro’s next dive into TVC?  Do you all have that much faith in Hasbro to get things back on track?  Do they even know how to manage the 3.75″ line anymore with the Disney media barrage?  Share your thoughts after the jump!
