What are people's thoughts on the current Micro Machines toys? I never had any of the original ones, but I bought one of the new blind bags.

Tiny TIE Fighter is fun to play with.
>>
>>5380586

I loved these things. That was actually one of my favorite sets.

>>5381036
It has a lot of potential. Some of the playsets don't resemble anything though (specifically R2 and the Millennium Falcon)

I wish the blindbags were a little cheaper considering you can just buy a 3 pack for $5.

>>5380586
I just found all of my Action Fleet stuff in the garage, and gave it to my son for Christmas.

Those ships are still some of the coolest star wars toys I've ever seen.
>>
>>5381078
Isn't that the point, though? Multipacks always come out cheaper than singles, to maximize profit on the singles and to entice consumers to get the multis.

These are 3.75" figures by Hasbro. Unless they released an exclusive set somewhere, then most of those figures are individual releases.

thats all
the rest is insane
shit the old ones are even articulated
point me in the right direction for these
>>
>>5381454
They had a sail barge but it was way out of scale with the rest of them. It came with a Jabba figure that seems to be the same scale as the action fleet figures though.

>>5381559
Hasbro actually put out good figures maybe 5-10 years ago. Even better than their shitty black series.
>tfw lego minifigs now have better articulation

>>5382059
The articulated ones are the action fleet. Larger scale than the OG micro machines, and they were around $10-15 per vehicle IIRC. The vehicles actually came with 1-2 figures and a stand too.

Back when Episode I was coming out they did a three-way toy line between Taco Bell, KFC, and Pizza Hut. Each restaurant got toys from one of the three main planets, and Taco Bell got Tatooine, so they had a few different Watto toys and a collectible cup topper.

So are the Titanium Series ships the same size as Action Fleet? I never had any Action Fleet ships, but I have a good dozen or so of the Titaniums and many of them seem to be even the same mold as some of the Action Fleet ships I've seen in pictures, just without minifigures.

Is it just me or are the old 90s Star Wars Micro Machines much better painted and even the plastic looks nicer?
>>
>>5382936

Honestly, the old ones don't have as crisp a sculpt. Are all made from the same plastic then painted and thus have the potential to rub off, especially on all the edges.

I wish the newer ones weren't so light on the paint apps, but nothing a custom paint wash and a steady hand can't fix.
>>
>>5382936
This is all going off 15+ year old memories, but sorta? I got one of the new multi packs and while the TIEs only had a little bowing in the wings, the x-wings were some pretty sad stuff, all the lasers and wings were warped to hell and back. I had maybe a half a dozen of the original x-wings and I only remember one of them having any warping at all. The y-wings and a-wings were practically bricks.

The actual paint on the new ones I've handled is actually decent though. Maybe not as nice as the 90's stuff, but it's alright considering how small they are. Some paint like the grey-on-black for the TIE's cockpit is actually impressive, it's so clean.

I found a buncha old ones in a bag at a thrift store last year.
Then I saw these new ones and they just looked cheaper, almost like bootlegs with the plastic not looking right.
Not to mention ones I had dug out. Hell. I knocked over a bunch I had in a shallow bin while cleaning my room over Christmas. Actually had my Star Trek and Star Wars ones together.

The Action Fleet was my absolute favorite toy line for a long time. I collected them while the special editions were in theaters and only stopped after Episode I and was so let down by it.

I wish I still had the Tie Interceptor.

My Brother and I had almost all the action fleet stuff as a kid. We didn't have a lot of money so we collected Action Fleet as a cheap way to get both the figures and the ships and because at that scale your bed was the perfect sized Star Destroyer. What was awesome was they made Starship Troopers stuff at the same scale so we had a bunch of bugs and War Planets to fight everybody. I also remember when the Episode 1 shit went on super clearance I was able to get all of the deluxe playsets for 20 bucks.
>>
>>5382936

Can confirm. I've had the B-Wing and Executor in hand from both generations and the old ones are superior. Heavier, more detailed sculpt and more realistic paint.
>>
the only thing i dont really like about action fleets is the inaccuarcy in the scaling. Like, the AT-AT is waaaay to tiny and the Snow Speeder WAAAY to big.

also the Millenium falcon is supposed to be way bigger than the x-wing.
>>
>>5383788

Only the TIE Phantom and some of the character figures are exclusives I think

Which is a shame because I almost have 2/3ds of what comes in that box

But I want the Phantom...
>>
>>5384361

They're also pretty inaccurate model-wise.

Right now the hot shit is either the easykit Revell models, new Micromachines or the X-wing miniatures for good models

Goddam we'll never get anything like this for the force awakens
It doesnt help that the movie movie didnt really produce any interesting new designs. The x wings were just recycled mcquarrie designs
the prequels were terrible films but they had some interesting designs. TFA feels kind of like a budget star wars imitation next to it and the original trilogy. I mean i enjoyed the movie, characters and story were alright but visually it felt pretty lacking. There was nothing memorable about any of the planets either. and i mean sure previously we just had desert planet, ice planet, forest planet, but they all had quirks that made them feel different/more alien. That planet luke was on at the end of TFA was obviously just some place in Ireland or somewhere, i wouldnt be surprised to see hikers in the background
>>
>>5384042
Well I hate to burst your bubble but the diecast Titanium ships (which are a totally different thing, mind you) are like 5 bucks a pop so no, you wouldn't pay 60 bucks for over 20 of them either.
>>
I have Hoth\Yavin\DeathStar BEAST playsets, loads of vehicles and even a droid pack with loads of droids from the sandcrawler.

Got an MTT which folder out into Naboo battlefields.
>>
>>5380586
I wish I had a soft spot for them, but the minis are often painted so poorly, or the ships have warped plastic that it really takes away from the coolness factor. I understand they are tiny, so maybe expecting better is a waste of time. As it stands, I don't have the urge to buy any.
>>
>>5384583
All I want is a Kylo Ren Command Shuttle that isn't grey for no reason and maybe also I can open the cockpit and stick a tiny Kylo Ren and some troopers inside. Even the Lego set doesn't get the colors or the wings right.
>>
>>5384361

But the Action Fleet Snowspeeder looks great when you have it with a large AT-AT
>>
>>5382936

Just you, the new ones have more detail, are more accurate and are better painted
