    Nintendo did quite well with the Wii U and it is clearly a huge step up from the original Wii. The traffic on launch day was ridiculous and greatly hampered the usage of what could be done on the...

    These concerns are complete valid and warranted but I think people are allowing nostalgia to prevent them from from seeing it. People desperately want (and rightfully so) that part of childhood back...

    Over embellished in the fact how the industry was still there and people were still gaming. The "crash" is made to seem like the movie "The Day After." Things became cheap. Quite cheap actually and...

    The "great video game crash of 1983" gets more and more embellished as the years pass. The impression given is that one day the video game industry just ceased to exist and that simply is not true....

    Masters of the Universe is not a household name. Far from it actually.

    While the comic certainly helps, I think a large reason is because it's a good take on an old variant. We still get what made the original a fun toy instead of losing the particular gimmick.

    The fright currently being felt by Mattel is due to its own doing. You mention the 200x line and how the ill-effects of that line are effecting what happens today. Simple solutions coupled with...

    Nonsense like this is why the line is a joke. The figures themselves are wonderful but it is the small details that give the line a black eye. Off the top of my head we've had QC issues, an...

    What can be said already? We are years into this line yet like clockwork when one step is taken forward, two are taken backwards. Before we saw a change in shipping (last year) my figures would...

    The poster under your original (non-quoted) statement addressed your comments already but I'll interject a few more thoughts.

    Remember this series of films is from a time in which aliens use acid...

    The ordering process has ticked me off more times then not but today was acceptable. Although one figure sold out "quickly", others were still available well after the sale began. Somehow I...

    Walking into KayBee Toys and finding that elusive Teela/Evil-Lyn or Wonder Woman/Hawk Girl/Darkseid was not only an accomplishment but it felt rewarding and you don't get that when you end up buying...

    Look at some of the figures/sets that seem to be a bit more in demand: Certain figures (Faker) from the Commemorative reissue line as well as the 2 5-packs from TRU and the 10 pack from JCPenneys....

    Did everything actually sellout or is it just a ploy by DR?

    Maybe we should also compensate them for shipping as well as including a heart felt contrition for their error?

    The sticker sheet was a pleasant surprise. Couple that with the $5.00 coupon plus delivery that took less then a week and it was a good month.

    I'm not sure if I should be surprised or not.

    No love for the one time firefighter? :hmlol: I always got a kick out out reading the back of the card where it said to "fill with clean water."

    Not since Bioshock 1 & 2 have I been as impressed with an in-game environment as I am with Arkham City. The detail is ridiculous and instead of just looking good, it plays a large role in the game....

    In order for a line to be a success, you need an interest in not only the banner characters but the supporting cast as well. Quality > Quantity. Variety is wonderful if it appeals to the people.

    I'm convinced these figures are shipped via the pony express. I find it amazing how long it takes to arrive (usually 8 days) from the day it is shipped to the time it rests at your mailbox.

    Instead of comparing these MOTUC figures with other brands, how about we look at the progression of all the previous MOTU lines in terms of price and when they were released. We can't expect to be...

    A problem with an online order and compensation valued at 25% off a future order seems decent.

    My opinion is quite the opposite and I was pleasantly surprised when he arrived. I'm somewhat reminded of Martian Manhunter from the Justice League who is also boxy with some interesting lines.

    Shouldn't this have been common sense? I forgot whom we are dealing with.

    A relatively easy and painless 60 seconds. Five of those 60 seconds was debating whether or not to spend the extra $5.00 for UPS Ground instead of USPS.

    If my figure arrives today as the tracking suggests, it will be nine days from the day I received the shipping details. Nine days to go from the west coast to the east coast? I'm expecting to see the...

    Two weeks from the time you ordered?

    Is this 2011 or 1981? The time it takes to get these figures with the new shipper reminds me of buying products off the television some thirty years ago when...

    Interesting idea. Would a zombie He-Man be evil much like when Prime returned to life the season (for one or two episodes before returning for good) or so after The Movie or would he take a different...
