    I think scaling back is likely the only way the line could go another year; cost has been a major factor, I'm sure, in the declining sub sales. THe fact that the 200X sub did make this year means...

    Some good points; I'm thinking the energy zoids would fit the SDCC bill better if it allows for a little extra tooling, but last year's SDCC dollars appear to have gone into the Batmobile. Not...

    It's not a single person, methinks; it's just a very poorly run company from top to bottom. I honestly wouldn't have even considered doing business with them again this year after years of "subbing"...

    I'm really losing hope of seeing her in the line, sadly. If we get a 2016, maybe, but I don't see her coming out this year. And she is the #1 spot on my want list right now.

    Thing is, that is the crux of the character, so that's why it works for him. Problem I see with the DC movies is that they've basically officially told us they are going to Dark Knight every...

    Whatever the reasons, it is a welcome change; the "old ways" always smacked of giving Mattel a way to try to wedge things like Snake MAA into the line to save some production costs after everyone was...

    At least in the cartoon, very few characters had surnames, so I'd assume it's something of a rarity on Eternia or Etheria. Must be a WHOLE LOT of first names to choose from if most folks only have...

    Kind of hard for me to imagine not getting MOTU figures; I've followed and collected every version of the property thus far while it was out on retail shelves. But I can see a really bad, radical...

    I now have the image stuck in my head of a bunch of factory workers happily off-centering the eyes they are painting, all singing that song from the old Animaniacs show about making weird faces:...

    Got mine Saturday. Right eyes on both are a little...off, but not googly eyed bad, and that seems to be what I'm seeing in all the photos. Nothing anywhere near bad enough to make them worth trying...

    It sounds like they are going to explore what having someone like Supes appear means to the average human, which isn't a bad idea if handled right. But it's that last part I worry about, as I've seen...

    I found myself thinking exactly the same thing; she was featured quite a bit in the trailer, and having Han and Leia's daughter be the focus would be good change. The last two major force wielders of...

    Thing is, it isn't the same company. It's run by an entirely different group of people in a an entirely different era with 30 years of technological advancement in toy making in between. I could...

    THe problem with the two packs was the basic concept: in order to get the MOTU variants you want, you had to get a mismatched, in no way in scale DCUC figure as well, and pay basically full price for...

    I think the big thing that kept the line from going over better was the problems with the flagship character. Had He-Man been as dead on as the later figures, I think these might have been more...

    Actually, I think the armor problem was due to using a cheaper plastic that had to be thicker not to tear at the clasps, and didn't shrink as much as they expected.

    Apparently, you haven't seen some of the recent Marvel Legends figures like Scarlet Witch. One of the best looking female figures out there. Then again, I got the 4" Scarlet Witch from the movie...

    I've been strong, and haven't added anything additional onto my pledge.

    Yeah, strong. I wasn't going to get anything and now I'm getting 13 figures. That's some willpower...:hmlol:

    Short. Very short.:hmlol:
    Seriously, they are 4" scale, much smaller than the originals, so they would go along with Star Wars or Marvel Universe, but not MOTUC.

    Got mine; 68.69 for two Angellas and the maps. Be nice to finally fill in that one big space in the POP display I've been saving for her.

    Thanks! I think of her as Delora, but that's the beauty of Filmation re-using character designs; she can be either!:hmlol:

    I picked up the GG figures quite a while back, and I think they would work quite nicely in Classics format. And, honestly, I think it migt be a good idea for Mattel to snatch up the rights if they...

    I'd say the best bet is the laser figures. I SERIOUSLY doubt they will incorporate a light up feature in the figures themselves, which means the only way to do it in some form is with the packaging,...

    I know, I thought that was amazing myself. A second set of "at rest" wings was really going above and beyond here, especially given the size and the regular price tag.
