How're you going to categorize them? Would the Happy Meal Duke be officially known as "Duke v.16"? Snake-Eyes v.19??? :eek:

No reason for this. . .just wildly curious :D

Undecided yet and being discussed.

Personally, I think they belong in the Collectibles Archive, but someone else said the action figure archive.

What does everyone else think?

Okay, first. . .I'm not trying to pick a fight. This idea came to me just now.

The archives' primary purpose is to help newbies out, right? So what's a newbie to do ten years from now & finds a Snake-Eyes with only five pts. of articulation and no paint? What if a seller finds a Joe lot in the future where the McD's figures are integrated with the VvV/SpyTroops figures? What about the figure accessories? They're backpacks right? What if those are mixed in with future accessory lots?

If they can't find it in the figure archive, they're stuck with the hassle of trying to hunt it down in the collectibles archive. But OTOH, the SE, CC, Dr.M, and Duke are technically action figures. No really, much to our collective dismay. . .they are. While obviously the other Happy Meal toys are not.

My thought is to list the four figures as action figures and then include a blurb about where they came from as part of a line of collectibles that can be found elsewhere in the collectibles archive.

Easy-breezy-beautiful. . .

I think the four regular figures are just that - figures. They are as every bit as good as the 2002 T-Crotches - well, darn near the same.

I can honestly see someone trying to look them up in the main archive - and this goes for the BTR guys as well. I really think they are all figures and should reside there.

As well as in collectibles and in the BTR sections.

They can reside in two places that would point to the same pictures.

Now the ones with mold vehicles attached to them I would keep in the McDonald's section as they are different enough from being figures or vehicles.

collectibles. They don't belong in the figure section.

Same argument could be made for the Convention figures. They are repaints of ARAH figures. They would be easily confused if found in an ARAH lot in the future. Are they in the main section? No. They have their own section. End of discussion :D :p

Put them in the Colectibles section only

For now, they are just in the collectibles archive...

I will be adding them to the identify figure by year pages, and their accessories will be added to the WHOBIT at some point.

BTW, that reminds me. Why do convention figures have their own special section?

Is it because of their rarity?
