also is it just me or did TG completely sidestep the question about King Hiss's Package size?
I really hope they cosider doing dc barbarian figures!!
On another note, did anyone notice the following in "Catra's Wrath"'s reply:
"As for where this would tie in for the bio - well that remains to be seen, but if/when this character is made you can rest assured an appropriate bio would come along with him! Toy Guru works on a lot of the bios himself, he's very dedicated to making sure they're all a great dedication to the original bios - and the new story that they're forming!"
I thought the bios and story were all set. How are they working on and forming something that is already complete? How can there be a flexible "complete" story? It's not possible.
In regards to the Filmation issue, why do I get the funny feeling that they MIGHT just be a little upset that Mattel is making Ghostbusters toys based on the "other" franchise? Just a thought.
Okay, these are my examples, but I'm sure that they didn't plan on doing a MYP Roboto and thought the vintage version would have sufficed until fans brought up doing another version of Roboto. It could be that way with Rattlor, if they saw a fan thread on a forum and decided to make Rattlor and the General two different characters.
I could see them creating new bios for unexpected variants and changing existing bios that we haven't seen yet to accommodate them.
Lots of new question/answers up.
--Shadowbeast most likely moved to February
--No Clamp Champ in 2011 (so we can strike that one off the April possibilities).
--An interesting reply to a Weapons Rack question (Man-E-Weapons colors?)
I think this was only the second time I asked a question on Matty and I don't know why I bothered. Either they(Toy Guru or whoever answers these) just skim the questions without really paying attention to every word or reading comprehension isn't taught at Mattel U.
What does Man-E-Weapons red mean?
SCB: You'll find out soon enough... ;)
Personally I would have preferred to get those colours in a really neat SDCC exclusive variant instead. :(
It's really cool to hear that they are considering pushing the Shadow Beasts to February! :hmgrin:
What I think we're going to do is move Shadowbeast to Feb. since we don't want to delay the Guards any more then they have been already. We'll announce this soon once we lock it down.
Excellent idea!!!! Thank you.:skwink:
Just a general suggestion for these threads: Once you're ready to switch to a new thread, can you leave one final post saying so? That way, those of us who are subscribed to these threads are reminded to look for the new one.
Hilarious. Don't know about you, but in the course of life I'm not automatically thinking "It's a new month! Time to go look for a new Toyguru thread!" I know when he changes threads. The request for a simple post is where the "reminder" comes in.
Could the figure for next year's slot in April be revealed fairly soon? Per Catra's Wrath over at the MattyCollector Forums:
The April figure is being painted as we speak! Once it's finished (and been approved), Toy Guru will be revealing the April figure! Not long now...
Animated Pics always make me lol :telol:
I was initially going to pass on the weapons rack. But if we're getting Wun-Dar's appropriate weapons then I'll have to pick it up.Quote:
Is the new spring 2011 weapons rack going to include some or all of the weapons pictured with it, or are they shown only for display reasons?
No. Some of the weapons will be in Man-E-Weapons red.
