    He looks 25 shades of awesome!! Another winning review, Danster.

    A "tiny fan base" that single-handedly convinced Mattel that pursuing a Masters of the Universe movie might be a good thing? Yeah, you don't get that kind of juice by being super tiny... regardless...

    Very unlikely since hitting the sub was essentially a binding agreement of sorts between Mattel's customers and Mattel. As has been mentioned, for them to back out in the middle of 2015 production...

    Weren't the stactions just a way to get the sculpts to market even though Mattel had pretty much given up on MOTU by that point? I know NECA produced them and the way I heard it they were only doing...

    Thundercats under Bandai had two chances to succeed- both as regular retail product and as stuff aimed at collectors. Both failed over the long run to do much. Other than trying to release the core...

    I think that ship has sailed. ----^ The recent failure of both the cartoon and action figure line to gather any traction proved that T-Cats was a thing of its time and is now R.I.P.

    Blame whatever scapegoat you like for MOTUC's decline (Scott being the most convenient of all for many), but oftentimes when you're looking to point fingers fandom deserves a big ol'...

    Let's be fair here. Would you still be here posting in this thread after however many years of the MOTUC line if not for Scott--- at least on some level? Smack him down for honest goofs or failings...

    Could very well be. Scott specifically mentioned he'd get to work on a toyline he adored from his childhood, so maybe it's this one? I personally didn't give a hoot about Visionaries, but to each...

    I was as confused as everyone else appears to be. And mentions of "trolling" and the Matty mascot only further diluted what could have otherwise been an informative OP. I still have zero idea what...

    And it is ending. Scott never specifically said Classics would continue ad infinitum as long as the sales would support a new line each year. But he has said that the 'Classics' expression is being...

    Also remember Scott's comment that 2015 is, "pretty much baked in at this point". What I take from this is, if a 200x mini-sub was planned then figures are probably quite far into at least the...

    For those already talking about the end of the MOTUC line at the end of 2015; Scott said two very important things during his farewell speech recently on AFI that deserve repeating.

    1) Mattel...

    The problem is Scott having hand-held the MOTUC line and its fandom for its entire run has led many to believe that he's the one who has ensured this line remains solid and on track each month. His...

    It's a two part vehicle with an action figure and is being manufactured for a line at severely fewer amounts than would be made for retail. In other words it makes complete sense that the price...

    The good thing is I wholeheartedly doubt that the battle ram will be a quick sell-out. That gives you some time before you'd have to pull the trigger before potentially missing out.

    I'm fine with this personally ---^ The last two months of the year are fairly heavy as it is, so any chance to push the higher priced items around and spread the wealth the better.

    Spinmaster eh? Well, hopefully Scott can help them get their stuff together. Other than their somewhat innovative Tron Legacy line from a few years back I've never been a huge fan of their products.

    Did anyone else get the impression from Scott's recent voice interview with AFI that he'd been overworked and under paid at Mattel? This makes me wonder if he felt like the voluminous hours he put...

    Good point. The problem is I doubt we'll see anyone stepping in to fill Scott's shoes in the same way. Scott's passion for the brand and as a fellow collector is what created what's known as the...

    Will I enjoy any future lines Scott works on? Probably, depending on which lines those are. But I would never "follow" Scott and buy a particular line simply because he's put his stamp on it. No,...
