Thread: New Figurines

  1. #1

    Default New Figurines

    Just wanted to let everyone know that they recently released figures of Northstar and Aurora. They were made by the same company that made the Shaman figure - Classic Marvel Figurine Collection # 187. The figures come together along with a booklet about their appearances in Alpha Flight and a poster.

    Hey Michael, thanks for the post!
    We talked a bit about these at http://alphaflight.net/content.php?4...Eaglemoss-CMFC
    Have these only just come out in the States then? Or are you elsewhere?
    i've had mine for about two and half years now and they are proudly displayed on my mantelpiece.

    There are also Guardian, Snowbird and Sasquatch & Puck if you aren't aware of them.

    They've been here in the states for while... typically it takes 5 mo for the figurines to come across the pond.
    Are you an Alpha Flight Collector?

    Are they common and easy to find in the States?
    Are they cheap?

    I might be able to get mine!

    Just managed to check back in. I did know about and have the Shaman figure. This was the first that I had seen Northstar and Aurora. I'm guessing the store just got another shipment as I hadn't seen them before. As for the rest I'm now going to have to look more carefully (or check ebay) for them. Thanks for the info.

    Thanks. I was planning to look for them myself next month. What sort of stores should I look in?
    Comic shops? Newsagents?

    I've seen them at comic shops. My local shop regularly stocks Eaglemoss stuff so it wasn't a leap when I asked for the N&A pack. The larger comic shops here carry them as well. But since its an import and several years old at this point, some of the figurines are rarer than others.

    I'm figuring. One of the reasons I want to check myself is, I don't want to start anything I can't finish.
    (And the prices ebaying them here; something like $30-$60 each the one time I checked. shudder.)

    Isn't that more of a string theory than a law?

    It becomes a law when they string him up if he disobeys.

    Why does this remind me of a certain scene in Wild Wild West?
