    Mattel has it in it's corporate head that re-issues aren't going to sell well enough to justify them, and it's going to take a LOT to shake that belief (I think we're still trying to get them to...

    Okay, over lunch, I caved a bit. I just went for the skeletons and a few of the monster type characters rather than a whole set (the knights and dwarfs didn't thrill me that much, nice as they look)....

    Sadly, that's where I am right now. I was actually looking at the Kickstarter this morning, considering, but over 500 bucks for the full set up front is kind of daunting. ot saying they aren't worth...

    Really liking what they've done with these. They could have been pretty uninspiring if they were just floating buckets with arms (though I would have gotten them even if they were just static...

    THat leaves the door open if Zodac and Duncan do really well, but experience with Mattel and Matty tells me that's highly unlikely, and no plans right now means little to no chance of things starting...

    I admit I wanted Masque more, but I am glad to have any other Filmation character, especially one who makes such a good figure. I'm still a little put off by the face; I think it needed a little...

    I'm fairly sure that they wouldn't have included them in the video if they weren't planned for this year. Now, we may have production delays that move them into next year, but that wouldn't be the...

    It would actually make the character more appealing to Mattel with all the re-use of parts, but I don't know if they'd feel the demand is there for Vizar to begin with, much less both versions. I'd...

    Given all the potential re-use here, I think this would appeal to Mattel as well as fans. And her look is like a play on a different Sorceress (with the bird headress), so she'd fit in well with the...

    Could be, but that wouldn't really match the character; she was anything but a warrior, and that was the whole point of the story. The little skirt and bikini top really matched the characterization...

    I remember the In Search Of... series; his voice was perfect for such things. Of course, he'll be remembered most for Spock, no doubt, and I am glad he got a chance to reprise the role one last time...

    Not sure about the comic, but the cartoon got funding from Mattel, just like the original. If the company was no longer making the toys, there was no justification for using money from the marketing...

    i probably need some spoilers here, or I'll have to break out the magnifying glass simply to be able to read it as I've had to with the past MOTUC minis.:hmlol:

    Definitely on board for that; I've been wanting that storyline represented from the first mention of SOHM. TG is gone and that might be a chance to tap this version created by one of the folks who...

    I feel the same. Every era has fans, and honestly we don't have actual sales numbers and extensive research with detailed questionnaires from a significant sample of fans to go by for sweeping...

    Great review, as always. And I am with Dan on the vintage toy He-Man head; seeing it here has definitely convinced me to plop it on both my main He-Man and Battle Armor figures.

    And, as weird as...

    I think that is a reference to the many accusations over the years that Mattel played fast and loose with the numbers to boost sales, so i wouldn't ascribe any deeper meaning to it.

    And I do like...

    Definitely doesn't look like a Filmation version; hair is wrong. I think it's either Oo-Lar's noggin or the new vintage style head that comes with him.

    I had no problem with that; it's a TG tradition that something has to get broken or fall on the floor.:hmlol:

    He's still a little uncomfortable in front of the camera, but I agree with most here...

    THere does seem to be an upbeat tone right now, but I think there are a lot of reasons for that.

    It is true that TG could be a polarizing force; the man who sat down and often got downright snarky...
  22. My best friend just published his first nove: Sonarr

    Everyone talks about writing a novel, but he did it! It's a super hero story in the classic vein, based on some characters we came up with many years ago. I was story consultant/editor, but the tale...

    After seeing the first look on Fwoosh, I'm looking forward to him even more. Amazing how such a basic, simple figure can turn out so well. And I am seriously considering popping the new toy version...

    I guess these were already in the pipeline, so that's why they are still getting made; this explains why we haven't heard about a giants sub. Too bad; they take up a lot of room, but I was kind of...

    I'm assuming that was planned, otherwise Brandon may be in some deep doo for blowing the surprise...:hmlol:

    The original has a partly bare back and the "belt" going around. Also, the hair is a lot fuller here.

    I'd be glad to see this, but, given Mattel's track record (hello, buying another '66 Batman...

    Not thrilled to have to buy another Batman and Robin to get Batgirl, but I can't put that all on Mattel for once. The delay in getting Craig's likeness rights basically meant they couldn't get BG out...

    Looking back at a picture of the character, I agree that the Dactus legs are almost a sure thing from the knee down, and I doubt we'll get a new furry shin. I imagine the Beast Man buck is the base...

    Actually, from numbers folks have found on Matty (when they were able to see how many subs were left for sale), the minimum plus 10 percent is somewhere around 5-6 thousand. Thus, we are somewhere...

    Yeah, I wanted to try that, but I kept getting timed out when going to that page. I will try it again tonight, though.

    Thanks, all! Now I have two options, at least.
