    A report from a European toy fair mentioned a Star Wars Black figure for the Rogue One movie that was described as looking like Thrawn, but without the blue skin.

    Basically, I think Mattel would need to get the Hanna-Barbera license for this, like Figures Toy Company did. Wouldn't be bad, really; all the super heroes would be easy to make with the standard...

    I seriously doubt anything has changed unless Mattel's legal department had a sudden conniption over the issue. More than likely it's the same kind of delay that held up Masque for a bit; wouldn't be...

    Mattel is the top dog here, so any thoughts about Hasbro type approaches to the toys can be tossed out. You would have all the Hasbro brands run like a Mattel line, with Mattel distribution. You...

    But there were definite hints over the years that at least some of it was considered canon. Dash Renar's ship is clearly visible taking off in the update A New Hope, a deliberate nod to the books.

    THe toys/merchandising didn't make as much the last two times; with 3, there was tail end stuff that never actually got out because the earlier waves were backing up. The TF4 line, if I recall...

    Man, that looks good. The way the bandages drape is near perfect. And, maybe it's just the lighting and shadows, but does it look like his lower jaw is a separate piece? It almost looks like it might...

    No one is jumping to conclusions; they are, for the most part, making some very rational conclusions based on past experience with Matty. The photos released by Mattel itself show a horrible design...

    If the photo in the auction shows what the finished product really looks like, then Mattel made their own problems once again showing a massively defective version in their official photos. I am...

    Yes, there's a gap, but NOWHERE near as pronounced. The problem with He-Man's ankle is it seems specifically designed to leave that huge gaping space. Notice on Teela's boot how the disk that fits...

    So, once again (and I re-emphasize, AGAIN), we're supposed to simply excuse a terrible design choice that no other company right now would apparently approve (as I don't see any other similar figures...

    I don't understand what happened here; the basic concept is very similar to the way the original Teela's foot/ankle was constructed. That foot worked fine and looked fine, with no huge, gaping spaces...

    Most of the figures had a degree of ankle tilt; not a lot, but enough to keep the feet flat unless you have him doing a high kick or a limbo dance. And there's no excuse for this kind of bungling;...

    The bad: yeah, those ankles are horrific to the point I can't believe someone approved them. This is Rio blast chest plate bad. I was thinking something was mis-asssembled, that the ankle part of the...

    Future Quest is the only one that looks like it might hearken back to the original concepts. Some look like they might be mildly interesting, but I don't see anything here that makes me want to see a...

    It is Panthro's only accessory, and he re-uses a good amount of parts, so they might be able to budget in a real chain.

    As for Pumyra, my first reaction at seeing her is that she's one of the more...

    Apollyon is a great Megatron figure, and perfect for the modern Masterpiece scale. I have the original MP Megs, but he and the original Prime are just way too big (Prime towering over Grimlock is...

    Got him last night.

    He looks good; the colors are pretty well dead on, and I like the extra leathery texture on the straps. The mask on Masque captures his look almost perfectly. I know a lot of...

    It's definitely not all one piece (look at where the final link at each end winds up on the loop atop each chuk; not right at the top, but at odd places on the side). I thought it might be one solid...

    I believe the three Titan class figures they had folks vote on for the Combiners Wars/Generations line were Trypticon, Omega and Scorponok. Trypticon won, but I think we can assume that Omega is at...

    Panthro looks good, but I do agree the head needs to be a bit more scrunched vertically. Shorter and wider. Still, even as is, it's unmistakably Panthro.

    I don't know if the 2011 figures would go...

    Actually, that picture clearly shows his legs are shorter than Tygra's. The calves are the same length, as you can see by the location of their knees. But his thighs are noticeably shorter; Panthro's...

    I can see the general appeal of these, but I've passed on the upsizes of the 80's figures save for MOTU. The moderate sculpting that was somewhat passable at 4-5" doesn't translate well into the...

    It has to be something like that, a spell that makes people perceive the sword, and Adam himself, as looking different form He-Man and his weapon.

    Here's a problem with the story, though (also...

    Each subsequent He-Man and Skeletor in the original NA line was bulkier/buffer than the last; this one was the final He-Man, and he was almost back to classic MOTU proportions. And I wouldn't mind...
