    I started collecting MOTU when the first wave came out, so, yes, I'm interested in vintage style figures of things we never got, very interested, in fact. Finally getting the He-Ro and Eldor...

    I think the re-dos might be a bit chancy, but a simple pre-order to gauge demand would tell S7 if it's worth it to make them. In today's toy world, there doesn't have to be a lot of guess work on...

    I think maybe large sets might be down the road, at best, but single pieces like Skeletor's throne or the meeting table would be nice single pieces that could be put together for bigger scenes. We've...

    Could be; aren't that many folks with the Four Horsemen, as far as I know. And, truthfully, we have no idea how many folks were actually dedicated to running Matty, either. A shoestring operation...

    I'm not sure where you're getting the idea this was such a huge undertaking for Mattel; it was a very, VERY small line from their perspective, much like the lines made by companies like S7. S7...

    As the main S7 man himself noted, there's a lot of empty space right now, and a lot of questions there simply aren't answers to at this moment. But there are a few things that seem good about this...

    A few suggestions from the grumpy old dragon; first, what I'd like NOT to see.

    In Edna from The Incredibles best voice: NO SUBS!!!! I really believe the reliance on the sub model was one of the...

    Which also likely means neither S7 or Mattel are paying any attention there. Folks are simply trying to express support for a line that is as closely related to the MOTUC line as it could be without...

    They aren't doing anything from the 200x cartoon because there's little to no market there. The series didn't last long enough to have an impact on the public or collectors, for the most part. Search...

    Couldn't get to the computer at the instant I needed to, so I'm out of luck for the fourth day in a row. Sorry, but right now I'm doing a happy dance at the demise of Matty, a miserable excuse for a...

    You did a great job with these; the last thing I need is another expensive line of figures to follow, but these would be nearly impossible to pass on. I'd definitely be buying them if they are...

    I think this is very possible; with all the info we aren't getting right now, they may still be finalizing things between Mattel and S7. Sorting out the likely more complicated situation with the...

    I am hoping they do release the cardback versions; I love GITD stuff with a passion, but I think a lot of detail is getting lost here. Definitely interested in these, and possibly more new stuff down...

    Okay, I can't feign sadness at the demise of Mattycollector; the worst run site on the net should have been shuttered years ago, and it will remain a sad joke and embarrassment in the annals of the...

    Problem is, Mattel's point of view has always been narrow and short sighted. I've seen it time and again over the years from them; short term profits override long term vision. How many times did you...

    May be some hope. She-Ra lasted for a bit today; maybe the cats will hang around a little longer in days to come.

    Maybe someone needs to point out to Mattel that it's Cheetara, not the kids, that...

    I saw Rock-em, Sock-Em robots on the sign, so I think it's just showing off the iconic brands you could immediately recognize from silhouette.

    That's what I figured. It's instantly recognizable to a whole generation. Still, if the banner is new, it would be a poor move to use that silhouette at the same SDCC where they axe the existing...

    But not surprising. Hasbro's JW line was fairly sub-par by almost any standards, and the distribution has been Mattel level bad. They really missed the boat here; I know they weren't sure how popular...

    I'd like to read something into that, but one could attribute that to him being one of their most recognizable brands, even in silhouette. It would be a cruel taunt, though, if no more He-Man stuff...

    Yes, and, as usual, it asked me to log in again once I got to the order page. And it was less than two minutes after I first logged in. Still the most annoying website on earth. Still, thanks for the...

    Three error messages from Matty and the Cats and Invisible plane were gone. Got a She-Ra, though. Not sure it's worth trying again for the cats tomorrow (just happened to be at my computer today at...

    Actually a good point, unless DR hasn't heard anything from Mattel, either. Given the circumstances, that wouldn't actually surprise me right now. Still, I'm willing to grab onto any little scrap of...

    Forget it. I was checking out within two minutes of it opening up, and same thing as yesterday. Ridiculous, even by the ludicrous Matty standards. They've almost got me hoping now that we hear...

    That one was highly questionable to begin with, and there's been a lot to contradict it and little to support it.

    Given that She-Ra and the Tcats aren't the only ones ONLY available through Matty, you may have a good point here. I seriously doubt that Ever After High and Thomas the Tank Engine are lines on the...
