    Man, I hadn't realized it had been so long. I've been watching the old series on Me-TV here, and he was very good in the role of Gordon. He kept the camp from going too far over the top in his...

    Dang, I hadn't though about Cars/Planes. That's one thing I regularly collect, and Mattel does die cast pretty well. I wonder what Hasbro will do with that? From what I've seen of late, I don't...

    Mine could show up any time, I guess. He's been sunning himself in Atalanta for 10 days according to Matty, but my DOS purchase showed up yesterday, and it's supposed to be keeping him company in...

    Got her last night; I think she turned out really great except for the mangled left hand. It's just not fully molded; a shame, as it seems Mattel always has to have some problem these days to mess...

    It's only an issue because you apparently aren't aware of the actual storyline. He-Ro was not a spellcaster; he received the powers of natural magic, which gave him control of the four basic...

    I think the point most folks are trying to make is that there was never a need for him to show up in the first place. He's redundant as long as Gwildor exists (and even more so now that Filmation is...

    I pretty much figured the arms and legs would be hollow/rotocast out of softer plastic (in an age where many of the figures I buy have hollowed out feet/any other area they can scrape plastic out of...

    On the subject of the "surprises" TG mentioned, I do fear that, as he specifically points out the ever-so-beloved UNO, we may see some more of that sort of thing next year. "Surprises" seems to be...

    Loosely based, as in the only real thing that carried over is the name "Dare.":hmlol:
    I think the info on the cartoon is still on the site; it was put together by Lou Scheimer and company and...

    Since they have the Filmation rights and can make all the artifacts, I can't see any reason they couldn't simply have used the City of Wisdom.

    I guess there was never a reference to him being a Thenurian on the original packaging, so they can't use it here. Fairly pathetic bio; he's basically just on the run until he escapes into the...

    My big He-Man is spending his 8th straight day in Atlanta as we speak, so maybe there's a giant He-Man party there and your package is just arriving fashionably late?:hmlol:

    Seriously, I hadn't...

    Actually, it does, at least from Mattel's bottom line. Most of the things you mention are pretty consistent from figure to figure, but materials and mold costs are going to be cheaper at the outset...

    At the very least, I think that's what they were trying to get folks to think, with the way the face was covered and the intense eyes, as well as the comment about the fancy shoes (seems a lot more...

    I am glad to get Gwildor, as I've always liked the character, but I do think he looks a bit lost in that package. THe big key accessory is kind of cool, but not sure if anyone really wanted it. I'd...

    But that may be the big problem with the show; it's Jim Gordon, the Series. The last time we had a Bat based show without Batman, it didn't do well (Birds of Prey). Bruce seems to be a supporting...

    It's the bangs; looking at the two side by side, the only big difference 'twixt the original and the new big 'un is that it almost looks like they almost forgot to sculpt the bangs. It appears...

    Road Trip!!!!:hmlol:

    And lets add Atlanta to the itinerary; my giant He-Man likes it there so much, he's stayed the whole week!

    I think my biggest surprise was Thunder Punch He-Man; this was a variant I really wasn't all that jazzed about, but the Fab Four just added so many touches (like the fake cap ring and the place on...

    It's now on what I've been told is the usual stopover in Fishers for a few days. We really ought to get some folks from the org together and visit the place sometime; all these packages just cannot...

    The chest is in the mail!!!:hmlol:

    It's good to have the info, and not a bad thing that they passed it along to the org, but, I agree that they need to say something about this officially. Folks...

    I got a notice for the EA from Matty, I'm supposing because I had just gotten the giants sub. But the only thing that showed up was the evergreen stuff; no Super Powers classics, Superboy or Batman...

    Saw a review of these on Toynewsi yesterday, and immediately added one of each to my pile of loot on Big Bad (they don't have the craters, though). Not sure where I'm putting them yet, but way too...

    Quick Matty Day of Sales Question...

    Haven't dealt with Matty in a while, so, after putting in both two regular subs and the giant sub, I decided to test the waters with a DOS purchase. No problems at the time, just wondering how long...

    So now we know the mysterious use of clear plastic on Lizzy; actually pretty clever. A good sign for the new guy, perhaps?:hmgrin:

    Hadn't heard about this. Jaws was hands down my favorite bond villain because of his portrayal. I've seen him in numerous other things over the years, as well, but that will always be his best role...

    Finally decided to bite the bullet. Still not happy with the hair on He-Man, but, worst comes to worst, I can resculpt it and paint it. I knew I was going to want the other 3, and I can't really...
