    I remember the In Search Of... series; his voice was perfect for such things. Of course, he'll be remembered most for Spock, no doubt, and I am glad he got a chance to reprise the role one last time...

    Not sure about the comic, but the cartoon got funding from Mattel, just like the original. If the company was no longer making the toys, there was no justification for using money from the marketing...

    i probably need some spoilers here, or I'll have to break out the magnifying glass simply to be able to read it as I've had to with the past MOTUC minis.:hmlol:

    Definitely on board for that; I've been wanting that storyline represented from the first mention of SOHM. TG is gone and that might be a chance to tap this version created by one of the folks who...

    I feel the same. Every era has fans, and honestly we don't have actual sales numbers and extensive research with detailed questionnaires from a significant sample of fans to go by for sweeping...

    Great review, as always. And I am with Dan on the vintage toy He-Man head; seeing it here has definitely convinced me to plop it on both my main He-Man and Battle Armor figures.

    And, as weird as...

    I think that is a reference to the many accusations over the years that Mattel played fast and loose with the numbers to boost sales, so i wouldn't ascribe any deeper meaning to it.

    And I do like...

    Definitely doesn't look like a Filmation version; hair is wrong. I think it's either Oo-Lar's noggin or the new vintage style head that comes with him.

    I had no problem with that; it's a TG tradition that something has to get broken or fall on the floor.:hmlol:

    He's still a little uncomfortable in front of the camera, but I agree with most here...

    THere does seem to be an upbeat tone right now, but I think there are a lot of reasons for that.

    It is true that TG could be a polarizing force; the man who sat down and often got downright snarky...
  11. My best friend just published his first nove: Sonarr

    Everyone talks about writing a novel, but he did it! It's a super hero story in the classic vein, based on some characters we came up with many years ago. I was story consultant/editor, but the tale...

    After seeing the first look on Fwoosh, I'm looking forward to him even more. Amazing how such a basic, simple figure can turn out so well. And I am seriously considering popping the new toy version...
  13. I guess these were already in the pipeline, so...

    I guess these were already in the pipeline, so that's why they are still getting made; this explains why we haven't heard about a giants sub. Too bad; they take up a lot of room, but I was kind of...

    I'm assuming that was planned, otherwise Brandon may be in some deep doo for blowing the surprise...:hmlol:

    The original has a partly bare back and the "belt" going around. Also, the hair is a lot fuller here.

    I'd be glad to see this, but, given Mattel's track record (hello, buying another '66 Batman...

    Not thrilled to have to buy another Batman and Robin to get Batgirl, but I can't put that all on Mattel for once. The delay in getting Craig's likeness rights basically meant they couldn't get BG out...

    Looking back at a picture of the character, I agree that the Dactus legs are almost a sure thing from the knee down, and I doubt we'll get a new furry shin. I imagine the Beast Man buck is the base...

    Actually, from numbers folks have found on Matty (when they were able to see how many subs were left for sale), the minimum plus 10 percent is somewhere around 5-6 thousand. Thus, we are somewhere...

    Yeah, I wanted to try that, but I kept getting timed out when going to that page. I will try it again tonight, though.

    Thanks, all! Now I have two options, at least.
    Update:

  20. Can anyone tell me where Matty's phone number is on the site?

    I must be missing something, but I can't find any number to call Matty. My card expires in June, and I'd like to change it over to one that doesn't before that (which would allow me to put the new...

    Thing is, we've already got pretty much everything for 200X He-Man already; I just used the head off SA He-Man to finish a 200X version of him. The only thing really missing is the loincloth with the...

    Some of the MOTU minis were nothing more than pictures, and they were announced. Keep in mind, what we are told are the reasons for internal policies and the real reasons for them are often two...

    Interest has declined, but I still think a really strong showing at SDCC might be able to squeak one more year out of the line, especially seeing how genuinely jazzed the two Horsemen seemed (it...

    Duncan is my favorite character, bar none, but even I have to admit his original figure's face looked more like he came from the Planet of the Apes than Eternia.:hmlol:

    I am glad to see the big...
  25. I seriously doubt it will turn out like that in...

    I seriously doubt it will turn out like that in the end; we've seen nothing like that on the previous He-Man heads, and there's no reason to believe this one will be made in a significantly different...

    Perhaps, but what Mattel likely heard was "anything more than a three pack isn't going to sell." You're trying to use logic with a large toy manufacturer here, which never ends well.:hmlol:

    THanks for the pics of the assembly; illustrates it far better than I did.

    As for breaking the bank, there's a long standing story going back to the old Mego figures of the 70's. We got all of the...

    Given that Marvel's own productions have yet to spawn an outright failure, I'd bet the other way. Admittedly, Agents of SHIELD and Agent Carter haven't been outright runaway hits, but they haven't...

    Okay, I am honestly starting to wonder if part of the reason a lot of folks are kind of disappointed in the showings this year is because we aren't necessarily seeing everything that was there. In...

    There is a good point there. I'm a lot more anxious to get this figure than I thought I would be, being a Filmation man. But they did a really good job on him, and part of the appeal is leaving his...
