  • Do you own B5 action figures?

    So, I got a bit bored at work and thought I'd look for a Kosh action figure. Turns out they've easy enough to pick up. Tempted!

    Do any of you own B5 action figures? Which are your favs?

    Kosh: Good!

    I've got the 9" Kosh action figure, and the Whitestar and Kosh in pewter.

      Yep. I believe I'm missing the Gaim (last wave) and the Shadow Sentient, but have the rest ... well, at least one version of each. I didn't hunt for the multiple variations of each character (there were 2 or 3 of Lennier, at least 3 of Kosh, etv) where they were just repaints of the exact same figure.

      The one variant with a real change was Delenn. There's her regular one with hair, but there was a variant of her before the change, as a full Minbari.

      Lochley was the Susan Ivanova body with a new head. But that was the last wave, and by then they were getting cheaply made.

        Which are nicest (paint job wise) of the Kosh figures? How can I tell them apart?

          I never got into the figures, though I did pick up a few of the 9" dolls. I think of the smaller figures, isn't one supposed to be Kosh and the other one "Vorlon visitor"? Like in this auction?

            There's Kosh, then there's "Vorlon Visitor" (crappier paint job), and then there's another Kosh ... the only difference between Kosh and Kosh is the packaging. One has the B5 logo in red, the other in green.

            Yes, they put out a whole "variant" because of that!

                This is odd because I've never collected action figures, comic books or anything till B5.
                Must be a mid-life crises or something (keep saying this will be the last time).

                I have the standard set of 9" figures - as seen on my profile page.

                And more recently found this 'buy it now' listing for a private collection on eBay.
                16 6" figures, 24 MicroMachine ships and a couple of patches - $60.

                I like the Gaim and Drazi Ambassador best.

                  Oh man! Those are really cool. They look more detailed than the standard action figures, a lot nicer. IÆll have to have a look round for a Kosh. If anyone sees one going cheap let me know.

                    I believe I have a Londo doll and a Londo figure.
                    Recently, there was a reckoning. It occurred on November 4, 2014 across the United States. Voters, recognizing the failures of the current leadership and fearing their unchecked abuses of power, elected another party as the new majority. This is a first step toward preventing more damage and undoing some of the damage already done. Hopefully, this is as much as will be required.

                      Was there a Sinclair figure or a Valen figure? Seems a shame if not....

                        I currently own Londo and G'Kar in action figure and doll form. Though they are not action figures I do own lots of pewter B5 ships from Agents of Gaming.
