    Mine's in Atlanta right now, but it completely bypassed our beloved Sparks! What will happen to the economy there without the three day stopovers from all our figures? I see the hotels struggling and...

    Never had any of these in any local newspaper, so it will be all new stories for me. Definitely looking forward to this.

    Okay, bizarre observation, but anyone else notice all of them in the pic above have a partially opposable big toe? Even She-Ra? I could see a reason for some of the others who might wind up with...

    The arms are designed almost identically, which is the main part I could see in the WW package, right down to the way the double jointed elbow is put together and the shape and way the bicep swivel...

    That was one of the biggest pluses for me getting these figures; it was an amazing feeling to be opening new, classic MOTU figures. The commemoratives weren't the same, as they were figures I already...

    Exactly like the original series. This is the Batman I grew up with (first movie I saw at theaters as a kid was the West Batman flick), so I'm looking forward to this. Sad so many of the original...

    Been here since 2000, before the turn of the century, so I'm wrapping up 16 years of grumpiness at the org.

    Yep, they are very different. They are similar in design, mind you, virtually identical from the waist up, which is why I initially thought they were the same, but it was obvious the bodies are...

    This is something sorely needed. Diamond has done a good job with set pieces in Gotham, and the build-a-rooftop pieces in their Ghostbusters line has more than once almost convinced me to buy them...

    Good news; too bad someone had to pry it out of Mattel.:hmroll:

    I'm hoping to get a few troopers just to use the heads from Sunder; we'll see how bad the mad rush is. Releasing these two things...

    Technically, she is. They used the body from the Barbie Bat v Supes Wonder Woman for her. :hmgrin:

    As for scans of the background, I haven't seen any. It is one of the best packages Mattel has...

    DC Animated Films: Judas Contract

    I guess I'm late to the party on this, but I just found out this was on the schedule for next year. It was a big disappointment when the project was originally abandoned so the DC films could go...

    As someone this happened to, let me shed some light here. I got two sets of the Star Sisters after my big debacle with Mattycollector (someone got access to my Matty account and racked up over $700...

    Very likely would sub. THe Matty experiences I've had make me no great fan of the sub model, but I'm willing to give S7 a chance if they offer the figure that way. I am, as I've said many times,...

    This is basically what I would hope for, with a few exceptions: continue with what we might have gotten. Now, I can see them doing repros of some of the really hard to find figures like the laser...

    Has anyone heard of any other SDCC sale at Matty?...

    Has anyone heard of any other SDCC sale at Matty? There were exclusives actually at the con; I thought there might be a second sale to give folks a shot at those, but nothing on the site.

    "Sell like ****" from Mattel's perspective; S7 may have an entirely different view on what's an acceptable seller and what isn't. And there are other, successful strategies for moving less popular...

    Legitimate points to bring up, but given that S7 seems pretty excited about using 30 year old body types they just discovered, I think things are pretty wide open as far as what they are considering...

    Finally got a chance to really look her over this weekend. Overall, I'm extremely impressed, though there are a couple minor issues. The elbow articulation can make the arm look somewhat deformed if...

    Well, I did say they wouldn't be different.:hmlol: Then again, maybe if S7 makes a point to tell the factory that the eyes are supposed to be looking in the same direction, things might improve...

    A few points that need to be made:

    For the folks who keep pushing the idea that S7 makes sub par product, you're basically lumping style and quality of product in together. Simply because you...

    I doubt they would have done anything too dark, but I imagine the Frankenstein would have likely been a serious take, more along the lines of the well done Flash Gordon movie for NBC than the more...

    Which is exactly the point. Obviously, you're not the target for these figures; you want something different, and that's fine. And, no, I wouldn't want a lot of new lines following this style. But...

    I got the Badcube version, Sunsurge, myself, as it seemed a little closer to the toon version. No complaints with that one, but have no idea about Spin Out.

    A nice feature, but I echo the sentiments of others here: I wouldn't want to cover that beautiful face. :hmlol:

    And seriously, the face sculpts are incredible here. The queen's face isn't just...

    And it looks so much better than the barrel stuck in the middle of the foot like Despera.

    Crita did turn out well overall. The shawl is a bit of a pain and very limiting, but it's hard to see...

    A friend pointed that out to me; I always figured, if something happened between them, it was a lot later on than we saw here.

    The thing really is two movies; even Bruce Timm has said that. I...
