    Well, there's sold out and then there's Matty's sold out. Don't be surprised if he resurfaces next year.

    I'd keep it simpler than that.

    He-Man was at his best when he left the jungle. Nostalgia has kept this line going. Finish off the vintage vehicles, minicomic variants and minicomic monsters, plus...

    Battle Ram is the big one for me too, although I'd have preferred an original figure rather than another Man-at-Arms variant.

    I'm actually pleased December is a little quieter for once. It's not...

    Yeah maybe. Either way it's a voice with a positive and helpful tone.

    When I first read your post my immediate response was "I'm with you there", but then I remembered Hydron, Cy-Chop, Sir Laser-Lot, Chief Carnivus and several others.

    Do we ever get cheap months these days? To think we used to pay twenty dollars for these things.

    Yes this was daft, but the reason this may have happened was that the 'ferocious figure with fur' was a descriptive tag on the original packaging, in the same way that wording like 'featuring a power...

    The occasional post in the forum is about the limit of my online interaction. I have no interest in any more than that. But then I do think Facebook is a blight on the Internet, encouraging a trivial...

    Gwildor has nothing that justifies the price. It just makes paying for a horrible figure even worse.

    Some people are trying much too hard to turn the poll into something it's not. The questions are straightforward and asking for opinions. It's not technical, it's not biased. It's based on the...

    I think the purpose of the subscription has changed from being a convenient guarantee of income for Mattel when the line was healthy to a scraping the barrel tactic for holding onto dwindling sales...

    Exactly! Can't believe people are complaining about not having had the chance to buy it.

    Comparisons to the original four minicomics are a little unfair because they were individual stories and didn't form a continuity. It happened more with the minis that followed to a small degree (The...

    Mine arrived yesterday. Eldor is superb. The attention to detail is very impressive. He probably has the most realistic head sculpt of the human characters. I think he may have usurped the likes of...

    Well they did a commemorative version of the vintage line - which were basically the same - and it didn't make much of an impact. New paint jobs might help, but I don't like the idea of gold / silver...

    I'm pretty much in agreement with this. A basic framework is good, preferably inspired by the vintage artwork and minicomics. The rest is for individuals to make up on their own (as we've done for...

    I think it is news, actually. The message is carefully worded, but fundamentally it implies Mattel has a commitment to continuing with Matty Collector. Remember Scott said he believes the hierarchy...

    I don't recall figures other than He-Man and Skeletor getting a second run, so reissue might be the wrong word in this context. Several were made available on a handful of occasions, but I'm not sure...

    Yeah, the sexualisation of aspects of childhood is inflicted upon youngsters by adults who should know better. Kids just need a chance to be kids.

    A terrible example of political correctness gone...

    My answer is no but purely because I don't collect anything outside Classics, the occasional Four Horsemen item and Classic Space Lego.

    All the best, Scott. You have achieved great things with the Classics. Good luck with your future endeavours.

    I think the appeal of custom figures is less than some people believe.

    Ditto for me. Well, that's not quite true - I glance through them when I put them up on my site, but I never absorb the information. To be fair to Toyguru, he's never said fans are obligated to...

    Knowing what DR is like and how poorly they write their messages, it could be real. A genuine DR e-mail should have a job reference number in the subject line. E-mail (new, not a reply) / call them...

    I gave up on the comics because the stories were so bad and insubstantial. Some of the artwork was okay though. I don't see a great likelihood in this being the next interpretation of the line -...

    For me it's the variants from the series one and two minicomics of the vintage line. Apart from Goddess, Procrustus, the Alcala Skeletor head and now Oo-Larr, we have nothing else in the main line....
