Anyone else out there collecting these? I was in KY this weekend and stopped by Toys R Us and they had the most recent complete Galactus Series so I endulged and purchased all 7. I get 'em for my brothers but have as much as fun as they do with them. Only one of these came with a stand though. So going to have to figure out a way to set these up. Talked to the kids today though and told them we're going to have to start setting them up and taking better care of 'em. Couple of them are missing minor pieces and at 8 bucks a pop I can't bring myself to replacing them just for pieces.
The detail is awesome though. And 30+ points of articulation on most of 'em. Whew, beats the old days when I used to play batman, damn their capes didn't even flex; much less having bendable toes and fingers.

Look for stands in the doll sections. Collectable dolls now come in many sizes and they make stands for all sizes. They are usually white, but you can paint them to match the figure so that they won't be as noticeable. Mike collects the old Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. He has a set still in the package. Last time he checked his original April O'Neil was worth $140.00. Not bad for a $4.00 investment. Our rafters are filled with all our kids old toys. It is surprising how valuable some of them have become. The most popular and main figure is usually the best one to buy and keep in the original package as an investment. Of course you have to have a second set to play with. LOL
