Best and Worst of 2014?

Posted in Action Figure Chatter

What figures from 2014 do you find to be pieces of art and pieces of shame to your collection?

I wasn't even going to bother with the jetfire untill I found out that under the chrome its the right shade of red .
sure does beat spending 2x as much on the takara realease, if of course you didn't like the chrome..nothing wrong if you do like it..but its just not to my liking

on the deathstoke its actialy the bicept swivel under the ball joint.like the peg is too long and theres a gap between it..making it very loose. the glue may still work though

Yeah, I noticed that too. Yeah, I'm kinda torn between whether I like it or not. I'll probably have a decision when I see and hold it in person. Ah, that blows. Removing the joint and adding a thin layer of superglue or nail polish remover to it may help.

We have some pretty similer taste. The only bummer about jetfire is that chrome. I know it's eitherj hit or miss with a lot of fans. But soon as I get mine I'm going to dechrome it

And my dcc deathstroke would make the list too. But mine had a loose arm swivel. I still need to think of a way to fix that

Best for me:
Easily Baf Groot.
I'd also sat that Drax from that wave is also high up there.
MLI Amazing Spiderman 2 Spidey
MLI Carnage
MLI Black Widow
Black series Chewbacca is another high up.
Black Series Stormtrooper
It surprised the crap out of me, but Transformers AOE Scorn
DCD Arkham Origins Deathstroke (would be higher up if he had a better paintjob and a little more articulation though)

Some that look fantastic but never got to getting:
NECA Portal Atlas and P Body,
NECA Pacific Rim Hong Kong Brawl Gipsy Danger
NECA 18 inch Gipsy Danger
Black Series Yoda and Scout with Speeder,
Game of Throne Jamie Lannister,
Figma Mark VII Iron Man,
Revoltech Leonardo and Donatello,
Monsterarts 2014 Godzilla,
TF Generations Leader Jetfire,
NECA 1/4 scale Arkham Origins Batman,
and this one hurts the most to not have it yet, NECA 1/4 scale Master Chief.

Worst:
Black Series Obi-Wan
McFarlane's Halo 5 Chief was such a let down with the cloak. Would have been great if they just made it fit better.
MLI Rocket Raccon isn't horrible, but man, I can't get over the decision to give him a blank stare.

The figures they made of Archer and Lana are so bad they hurt my soul... My SOUL! Just unforgivable. The best thing I've seen is probably the hot toys baby Groot. Honorable mention: the MTG figures. Dishonorable mention: the star wars black series.

Without a doubt my favourite figures this year........... probably ever!!



Worst I dunno, maybe a few I've bought for fodder that didn't work out but nothing really.

ones I loved

Groot baf
leader class jetfire (havent got it yet..but I think its the best TF toy ever)
doomsday unleashed ( I hope it lives up to the hype..mine hasnt arived yet so ill do a follow up)
marvel infinite black cat (meow)
TF gen. sandstorm

I don't think I've bought anything that I had remorse about this year..I've kinda gotten better with impulse buys on figures I don't really want
