Name: Legends of Flight WWII Aces
Company: CORGI USA
Age: 8 and up
Price: $19.99
Category: Collectibles

What is it?

Corgi’s (ToyDirectory) History Channel: Legends of Flight WWII Aces series comprises six 1/72 scale die-cast replicas of the immortal fighter planes of WWII: the F4U Corsair, Messerschmitt Bf109E-1, FW190A-3, P-51D Mustang, Hawker Hurricane Mk1 and Supermarine Spitfire Mk1. Each aircraft comes in a sturdy blister box suitable for collectors, complete with the pilot’s name on the front.

 

What we thought

The detail on each plane is what you’d expect from Corgi, with accurate markings right down to the fuel capacity (85 gallons on the Spitfire). The propellers turn and the wheels roll—but they don’t retract. The metal has a sturdy weight to it that tells you this plane will survive the occasional crash landing.

 

Why they’ll want it

These little fighter planes are the perfect size for desktop display, or for die-hard collectors; the blister box (with built-in display stand) makes for a perfect way to preserve and enjoy each plane. And at $19.99, it won’t take long to collect all six.

Name: Twilight Zone Invader Life-Size Figure
Company: SIDESHOW COLLECTIBLES
Age: 14 and up
Price: $40
Category: Collectibles

The packaging alone makes this collectible figure from TV’s golden age worth buying. Adorned with wonderful black and white still-shots from “The Invaders” episode of The Twilight Zone, as well as a full treatment of the episode and brief history of the series, this is a collectible no die-hard sci-fi fan could resist pulling out the Visa for.

Accessories include the electric prod the little robot uses to attack Agnes Moorehead’s character and a radar antenna for his head. The Invader figure was sculpted by Mat Falls.

Name: Robert Davi "Sanchez" and Timothy Dalton "James Bond" 12-inch figures from Licen
Company: SIDESHOW COLLECTIBLES
Age: 14 and up
Price: $40
Category: Collectibles

I never saw License to Kill, but can honestly say that any action figure (“Sanchez”) that has a diamond necklace-wearing iguana for an accessory is cool by me.

Sanchez’s other accessories include a machete and Uzi (with extra clip), and a display stand bearing the movie logo and character name. With 20 points of articulation, these figures can be posed as well as left in the box as a collectible. Sanchez is a limited edition figure with roughly 5,000 to be produced.

The often overlooked Timothy Dalton James Bond character gets some respect with a 12-inch figure outfitted in Bond’s signature black tuxedo. Fully articulated and bearing a remarkable likeness to the actor, Bond’s accessories include a Walther PPK pistol, display base and Q´s camera gun and case, all in a collector’s display box with original movie poster art. The figure is a limited edition at roughly 15,000 figures.

Name: Monty Python and the Holy Grail 12-inch Figures
Company: SIDESHOW COLLECTIBLES
Age: 14 and up
Price: $28.99
Category: Collectibles

All five figures from the film, King Arthur and Sirs Lancelot, Bedevere, Gallahad and Robin come with sword and shield, unique armor and clothing and a tiny “parchment” book showing a still-shot of the character from the movie with a brief passage, such as “Sir Robin, the not quite so brave as Sir Lancelot.”

Picking up on the humor of the original movie, it’s easy to get the joke with box-copy like this: “Made from lesser quality materials, this edition was slapped together for that bandwagon-jumping late-comer collector.”

If that’s the case, the first set of Python figures are sure to be lingering in the airtight vaults of happy collectors.

Name: Army of Darkness's Mart Ash 12-inch Figure
Company: SIDESHOW COLLECTIBLES
Age: 14 and up
Price: $40
Category: Collectibles

With package copy recalling the cult-movie favorite Army of Darkness and a display-ready box, the S-Mart Ash is another worthy addition to Sideshow’s line of collectible figures.

Coming with a Winchester rifle and—best of all—a pocket protector complete with pen and S-Mart logo, the figure wears a name tag reading: “Hello, my name is Ash. Housewares.” It’s that attention to detail that has won Sideshow its own army of devoted collectors.

Name: Series 1 Action Figures
Company: DUSTY TRAIL TOYS
Age: 5 and up
Price: $9.99
Category: Collectibles

Dusty Trails’ Series 1 Action Figures are a welcome addition to the 6-inch figure category. Each figure is detailed right down his bootlaces and comes with a display base unique to each character. All the characters are original; no licensed movie icons here—unless you count the SWAT Pointman, which, though not licensed from the movie released in August, will surely benefit from the serendipitous timing.

Other figures in the series: The Captain (a 17th century pirate), Schwartz (a WWII German machine-gunner), Spider (a thug blasting twin pistols as he hits the floor), The Outlaw (an old west gunslinger), and Corporal Smith (a WWII Airborne Pathfinder).

The SWAT figure was the most coveted collectible to reach our offices in some time. He comes, not just in full body armor with tear gas canisters and a leg-strapped 9mm Beretta, but also posed kicking in an apartment door (#13) with flying wood splinters.

The figures are packaged in a sturdy blister pack with accessories prominently displayed. I took the Schwartz figure out of his packaging (so you won’t have to) to test the articulation. His arms and wrists move and, with a little finessing, the big MG 42 machine gun fits snugly in his grasp, as do the “potato masher” grenades in his belt.
