    This is the pic I think most are referring to, showing that the new figures have the wider crotch piece used...

    I agree. I'd be more than willing to wait longer to address the problems, though I think it's likely too late for the first wave.
  3. Up until now, I had no worries about the factory...

    Up until now, I had no worries about the factory change, as I've gotten S7 product before and never had any problems with the quality of materials (something I've mentioned on the boards many times)....
  4. I hope so to, but the only folks we've heard from...

    I hope so to, but the only folks we've heard from on any of the issues are Val and the Horsemen. I think folks would have a much better feeling about things if we actually heard something from the...

    All of the Ultimates went out in displays in addition to, not replacing, any old ones. There's enough differences in the four standard figures due to the painting and mix and match pieces to make...

    Next to Kittrina, Ileena is my most wanted figure, and I would be thrilled if it looked exactly like this design (perfect translation into Classics). Basically, there isn't a single figure on this...

    I noticed the reddening, but I actually like it a little better than the original (Filmation fan coming through).

    Mine were waiting for me last night after work:

    He-Man: Nice, solid job, only minor problem is slightly loose ankles. Chose the Oolar head for him. The darker hair is noticeably different from...

    Basically, US law says that if it is something that Joe Average could perceive as a child's toy, it has to meet safety standards for children's toys, no matter the actual target market.

    Looks like you're right. The green face and lack of fur at the shoulders make it look more like the magazine version, but a lot of the details are still dead on to the movie costume, so it's darn...

    Teela will be a big seller simply because she wasn't previously re-released and is hard to get without missing a mortgage payment. Rammy may be a solid seller because of the colors, but I think the...
  12. No, they make contracts, verbal or written....

    No, they make contracts, verbal or written. Changing the paint on Ram Man would likely be covered by the "product/color may vary" caveat, but that may not cover changing a major selling point like...

    Thanks! Really wishing a couple of those were full blown mini-comics...
  14. Have to admit, the gray on Rammy doesn't look...

    Have to admit, the gray on Rammy doesn't look very good. I can see why the belt is one color (cardback detail), but the overall look is cheap. The rest of the paint job look really good, with a...

    I'm expecting or at least hoping for an email blast when they have the figures in hand. Here's hoping there's no customs hold-up...

    All the guess work and conjecture could be ended with a single post/announcement/video. Just saying...:hmwink:
  18. Sadly, there are some legitimate gripes here....

    Sadly, there are some legitimate gripes here. From the non-resealable packages to bad cropping of the artwork, folks have some genuine reasons to not be happy. I will say one positive thing: the...

    I didn't recall myself about where that info might have come from (thus the "if" near the start of my post above), but it's not something I cared about, so I might have missed it. If the company...

    If they are glued, it makes no difference to me, but if they were sold as being resealable, folks should have been informed as soon as the change was made. Regardless of how big an issue it is for...

    As far as we know, Mattel has nothing to make them with. The basic MOTUC molds went to S7, so Mattel would have to re-make all the body molds. Sadly, I see no hope for any more Tcats in this style;...

    Got the Paypal notice about Mattel Direct doing the pre-authorizing check (almost forgot about the order;came close to telling Paypal to cancel the authorization for payment until I tracked down the...

    Um, there are a LOT of collector lines out there run the exact same way, so I'm not seeing where the problem is. Even lines that don't do an outright pre-order pretty much have a defacto equivalent:...

    An instance where I would be thrilled to be full of spoo...:hmlol:

    A good sign.

    Problem is, most of those films didn't do well. Supergirl, much as I loved it, flopped (and even I had problems with the end, where the male love interest had to be the one to enable Kara to win)....
  26. This is a good point; the '89 Batman movie starts...

    This is a good point; the '89 Batman movie starts with Batman already existing, and you find out his origins as the movie goes along. The entire Filmation series never told us how He-Man began, and...

    How many auctions we talking about? Enough to justify making a full run profitable right now? Because, remember, anything you don't sell you have to have place to put and store, and other expenses...

    What people need to remember here (something Mattel had started to realize slowly) is that the Entrenched Toy Industry Dogma that's ruled the boy's toy aisle (since the GI Joe Nurse scared little...

    Okay, just ordered using the payment plan, and it seems to have worked (used Paypal to pay the initial bill, so that may have simplified things). Got both sets, plus two extra Hawk/Deloras (one for...

    NA never got the following of the original, but it seems a common misconception that it was some kind of flop. The line ran for three years, which, while not remarkable, is a respectable, successful...
