    Hi Jack, please could you clear this up for myself and all the other New Adventures fans.

    I am sick of hearing that the New Adventures cartoon is a "Star Wars rip off" and find myself constantly...

    I risk repeating myself ad nauseum.

    To get back on topic:
    For a variety of reasons, many of which I have explained in detail without hearing a valid counter argument, NA did not rip off Star...

    I didn't say SW didn't have an influence.

    I explained that due to the status of the SW franchise at the time it was unlikely that the makers of the NA cartoon said "let's copy Star Wars! ...
  6. Exactly. Star Wars took inspiration from many...

    Exactly.

    Star Wars took inspiration from many places long before other media took things from Star Wars.

    Seemingly there are people believe that SW started all sci fi. I know a few Trekkies...
  7. MGM: Agreed, NA was a sequel. As I said in...

    MGM:
    Agreed, NA was a sequel. As I said in earlier posts, not enough time had passed to reinvent it totally. They couldn't do what TMNT has done.

    And it is a shame that Mattel dismisses MOTU. ...
  8. I don't know how old you are obviously, so don't...

    I don't know how old you are obviously, so don't know if you remember or are aware but 1985 to about 1991 was a barren time for Star Wars as a franchise. No new media, no new toy lines. Sure there...
  9. Well X Wing pilot squadron then. Star Wars was...

    Well X Wing pilot squadron then.

    Star Wars was as dead as MOTU in 1990. The first successful expanded universe books were released around that time, but it wouldn't be truly revived for kids...
  10. I'm sorry but to say NA was in any way a rip off...

    I'm sorry but to say NA was in any way a rip off of Rogue Squadron is ridiculous.
    As has been said, in 1990 the Rogue Squadron aspect of SW was about as far off the radar as you could get.

    And...

    Again it's the target audience.

    Optimus Prime is a semi in the movies for nostalgia, to appeal to you and me as well as the kids buying the toys. If he was a bat, the older G1 audience wouldn't...

    Good point about the figures. However the (hugely successful) Turtles figures of the time were kind of out of date in terms of design and sculpt, as were the WWF Hasbro figures.

    Most toy lines...

    It's funny how everything "space" is now called a Star Wars rip off.

    Completely forgetting all the things that Star Wars itself ripped off.
  14. I'd venture to say that Optimus Prime has been...

    I'd venture to say that Optimus Prime has been unrecognisable a couple of times.

    By this logic, you're saying you believe a reason that NA failed is because it had He-Man in it instead of another...

    I still contest NA wasn't aimed at vintage MOTU fans.

    The reason for keeping He-Man and Skeletor is the same reason for keeping Optimus Prime and Megatron for each iteration of Transformers;...
  16. I agree that the original NA figures looked so...

    I agree that the original NA figures looked so much different when they were released that it seemed they were knock offs. But I believe that this was clearly intentional.

    NA wasn't aimed at...

    It's a shame all this. 12 pages of it. Some valid points amongst the same old story.

    For what it's worth, all this "it isn't He-Man" is a poor argument. It is He-Man, it says so on the box. So...

    You're dreaming.[/QUOTE]

    How helpful of you. I said it SHOULD not that it will. Which is my opinion. On a forum.

    2016 should be geared towards finishing NA and throwing in core Filmation/Jetlag/comics/books figures including variants like Filmation Hordak.

    SOHM and New52 can wait until 2017 :-)

    Got a £34 customs charge. Considering it used to be about £20 for two figures this is much better. Savings £100's on shipping too. If everything arrives correctly I'll be most impressed!

    Poll 7 seemed a bit harsh. Many NA heavy hitters in there. Including Darius, Master Sebrian and Disks of Doom Skeletor in one poll seems unfair. Especially as NA did very well in Week One.

    Also got my shipping notice this morning
  23. Brady O has always dealt with any of my requests...

    Brady O has always dealt with any of my requests quickly and efficiently. He's responds to mails promptly which is great as I don't want to be phoning from the UK.

    Whenever he mails me it's...

    I made my feelings known on the mattycollector forums. Then I got this email:

    "Dear paulioscorchio,

    Thank you for contacting Matty Collector.

    Looking over the forums I noticed you had some...

    The whole thing is yet another DR **** up. Why oh why are we still have to deal with this garbage?! It's 2014 for crying out loud!

    Seemingly everyone who speaks to DR/CS is told that Glimmer and...

    Any UK people who chose quarterly
    Sub received theirs yet?
    Any got at least a shipping notice?

    I've said this many times before and repeat again:
    We need all vintage NA figures. Classics isn't complete without them.

    If people bought Standor, Spector and Nepthu, then enough will buy Kayo,...

    I didn't think he'd respond to my strongly worded post on matty, very surprised. He said nothing of note, but still.

    Spoke to my credit card company; they let the charges go through fine. ...

    Hopefully it'll be Rotar and Twistoid. Not really interested in more variants at this point. Apart from Filmation Hordak obviously.
  30. I too have got caught up in this nonsense. I...

    I too have got caught up in this nonsense.
    I have two subs and it seems they've split each figure so there are 8 pending charges. Ridiculous.
    No shipping notice as yet. Still "order in process." ...
