    Lots of interest in the property these days, which is good. Sideshow does exquisite work (since those old days when they were doing the Universal Monster action figures), but I admit this isn't for...

    In part, I think they are counting on a big amount of crossover with He-Man fans; the collector market is very small to begin with, and there's likely a lot of crossover to begin with.

    As for...

    In the other S7 thread, there's mention of the pink ones being available in a regular release later, so I'm happy about that. Mixing the two formats together is bloody genius, in my opinion; it's a...

    I'm assuming there will be regular versions of the 3.75" retro figures down the line; no sense making those molds, either, just for the con (and the word on later availability of the the muscle guys...

    While I'll always prefer the character from the Filmation toon (much creepier, far more personality, and much more interesting), the 200x version makes a great figure, and seeing him in action here,...

    I can't see them paying for all new molds here JUST for SDCC, nor wasting a major license like MOTU for a one shot. I could see the pack-outs being exclusive and the black color, but I'm almost...

    I'd love to see this character in the line; I don't think we have anyone else sporting a rock thong.:hmlol: Only problem is that she would need a completely new set of molds that I see no re-use for...

    He was an incredible artist, not just in capturing realistic detail, but in his layouts and design sense. A lot of people can paint pretty pictures, but his work was dynamic and alive. I think his...

    Mildly disturbing, to say the least, but at least things are compatible across figures. :hmgrin:

    Multi is fun, but somehow just not quite as much as Moddy. Something in the mechanical, boxy look...

    Got Squeeeze, and they did do a great job on him. The arms work quite well, both the bendy aspect and holding a pose. So glad they did it this way, and the material feels nice and solid; I don't...

    I really would like both a female snake and repaints of the warriors.

    As for Squeeeze, he's giving hugs in Sparks right now. :hmlol: Hopefully won't be too much longer until he arrives here.

    If MOTU continues in some form next year, I will be buying. Unless something catastrophic happens with my sub this time around (as it did the last time I subbed lo so many years ago), I'll likely be...

    Picked him up yesterday, and he's already on his way to Sparks (and me, eventually :hmlol:).

    Too bad it's almost certain we won't get Teela; she really would have made the whole set.

    This will go the same way as New 52, same way as virtually every big event has gone since 1986. There's nothing new here, just worn...

    It's the lighting; it looks like its coming from the right in some spots and the left in others. It looks weird in the face because it seems to be coming from her right, but the left side of her face...

    Female characters are always welcome, and she would make a striking figure. She'd need new arms with the scaly texture, but those could always be re-used for a female Snake Man (Woman?).

    Kittrina still tops my list (not just for Filmation characters, but for MOTU in general). Dree-Elle and Montorq are WAY overdo, especially considering they'd allow Mattel to reuse some of the Orko...

    THat would be interesting if it is testing the waters for more; if it's just an isolated, one time item, though, it looses a lot of appeal to me (I might have considered the Lego Ghostbusters Ecto-1...

    But we were told flat out that isn't the purpose of the bios and minis. The stated purpose of both is to maximize the number of characters that can be made in the line. If you look at it that way, as...

    And an alternate version of the Troopers would definitely fill that bill. No, not many are going to get a sub just to get the Troopers. But holding the Troopers back as one of hopefully a number of...

    A good way to get him back out there, and an added incentive to buy the horse. Fisto was a low point in the line, where the problems getting him were purely and solely mistakes on Mattel's part (you...

    Watchmen was one of the most faithful re-tellings of a comic book tale ever put on film; I thought Snyder did an excellent job with it. It's just that that grim and gritty style does not mix well...

    Far as I know, Mattel hasn't changed their stance on the re-issues not being worth making, likely because of the reasons you state. I do think a variant Ram Man in the cardback colors and similar...
