    Actually, he's Edward Scissorhands, but that's mincing knock-offs...:hmlol:

    Sadly, it's hard to argue with this point at this point...

    Actually some good points here; the basic concept, even...

    That one was likely the Hot Toys Reeves Supes, which, from what I've seen, was an awe inspiring piece. I think it might have been available through Sideshow, but they didn't actually make it.

    I noticed that in Begins; there is actually no main theme. What is passing for music there and in MOS would usually be backgrounds strains for the real music. My main interest in music is movie...

    Okay, general, non-spoilery stuff:

    Saw it yesterday, and loved it. Every strength we've seen in the Marvel films was here: strong, very character driven story, great action, just the right amount...

    Perfect sense; I think that is a totally logical and reasonable approach, and has been successfully done (with guys like Hiss having the attached overlay working out just fine).

    Honestly, I wouldn't be averse to a Son of He-Man mini-sub, but I'd want figures of the characters originally intended to be in that, like Kayla, Forklift and Air-Bag, not some stuff crammed into a...

    I'm pretty sure the translucent plastic starts out clear like this; I believe you actually have to add pigment to the mix to get it to be anything but colorless. So this should actually be an easy...

    No, but it would have gone a long way to connect the concept to something the fans already connect with, and would have given the UNO a place in established MOTU history. There's a big difference...

    Very good points, and very much in line with my thoughts. Anything like this needs to be done because, to paraphrase all those 70's comic book covers, "We demanded it!!" If there was a great...

    If we did get it, it would be like the white Sorceress, a pure repaint using existing parts. Even with that, I think there are a bunch of pure re-paints/re-do's (cardback Rammy, mini-comics Trap...

    Like folks were told Anakin and Padme were married?:hmwink:

    It's an interesting idea, actually, at least in it's implications for the Jedi in general. Ani broke the "no fooling around" rule, and...

    In that sense, they did the right thing from a marketing perspective. The New 52 versions are known to about 150-200,000 people who read comics. These versions are recognizable to millions,...

    Dinosaurs in Deland, FL

    Went to this exhibit at the Volusia County Fair Grounds last weekend; the vids are little shaky, but the dinos are really cool:

    No, Zilly's feet are like a sauropod rather than a tyranosaur; think an elephant's foot. It makes no sense for it to be that way, as it would make it harder to balance when walking. In bipedal...

    That's an interesting thought that might explain why a tie in with a big screen Marvel movie could bring in the lowest ratings ever: the spoiler effect. Some folks may be WAITING to watch it later. ...

    Sideshow 12" Superman

    Just started seeing the pics for this show up, and at first glance, I was actually considering it. I knew I'd be tempted at some of these, and the costume on this looks near perfect. The body is a...

    I don't think I've ever seen such a well thought out analysis of exactly what roles these two can fill in the mythos; I already like both characters and feel they are important, and I still find...

    A lot of movies mentioned I agree with, but Hulk was one movie I never even bothered to buy on DVD. There were legitimate expectations as it was based on an established character, and the mess of...

    But that's the point; we'd be asking for SLL in Classics BECAUSE he was in the original line. It has nothing to do with being bitter; it has to do with the fact that this line and its market are...
  20. Given what we've seen of Coulson thus far,...

    Given what we've seen of Coulson thus far, there's NO way he would have told any of his people to kill fellow agents just to infiltrate Hydra. If this was done on Coulson's orders, there was a good...

    All very well taken points. Now, there have been things offered outside the sub with a legitimate reason; She-Ra 2.0 wasn't in the sub because many subbers already had the first one, and Mattel...

    The ability to communicate with cows?:hmlol:

    Time travel is usually a poorly used story device, and I actually prefer it be kept to a minimum. Once it's introduced, you have to bring in a lot of...

    All valid points, but the problem is, that ISN'T why such things have been muddled in the past. Frosta didn't turn out gray because the factory didn't have the right white paint. It was a...

    Some good points, but the core isn't completely played out. If 2016 makes it, it will likely be on the strength of two numbers and a decimal point: 2.0. I see the carrots as being a new Teela with...

    And, fortunatley, we haven't gotten that yet, at least not much. Outside the 30th sub, we've really only had the UNO as a new character. King He-Man was technically part of the legitimate SoHM...

    Cost and tooling. They likely went this way because the new chest piece could share the mold with other new parts made of the softer plastic; a new chest would have likely required another mold for...

    Problem is, we already had a character that does that, the one who made the cosmic key: Gwildor. He already served that exact story purpose, and with a bit more style, to boot. There was never a...

    Actually, prejudice and judging by appearances (which is basically the root of racism) has always been a strong part of MOTU. How many episodes of the toon not only touched on the concept, but...

    For your first point, one has to ask an honest question: would any of these new creations help sell a sub? We're barely making it based on finishing the vintage figures, and folks are pointing to...
