    PayPal is infamous for doing that, wouldn't surprise me even a little if that was the case.
  2. The proof will be in the pudding (aka when the...

    The proof will be in the pudding (aka when the figures actually ship and we have them in hand), but Super 7 is a much smaller company and they are using a different factory than Mattel, their process...

    Fabric would not be successful, unless it was unprecedentedly well done. The prototype has depth to the wings that cloth cannot easily replicate. A tampo on a flat piece of cloth would look terrible....

    I thought it was good, the best update I've seen to the original series. Kept the basic characters and plot but put their own spin on it, had lots of references to the vintage show/the comics. The...

    Sign me up for plastic only. Soft goods generally look horrendous at this scale. We haven't had them this long, why start now?

    Are you sure that's not just his ankle articulation?
  7. Companies are run by humans, and that's just how...

    Companies are run by humans, and that's just how humans are, no matter how professional they should theoretically be. You're never gonna get anywhere good by constantly complaining, even doctors...

    I agree. From original sculpt to casting copies to painting to cutting molds at a factory, it's nearly impossible to get a true replica anyway without the original molds. These look to be prototypes...

    I just hope that now finally people might be starting to appreciate the hard work Scott and the designers at Mattel put in to making the MOTUC run at Mattel as great as it was.

    The "not a toy" thing is not an "attitude," it has to do with safety regulations. If you want to sell something as a toy in the US, it has to go through safety testing, which can be expensive and...

    Any more pics of the Super 7 reveals? Especially Eldor and He-Ro? And is that a good new mini comic?
  12. That's an awesome chain!

    That's an awesome chain!

    I predict Granita will be revealed for Collectors Choice and Man E Faces for Club Grayskull.
  14. I never had any problems getting replacement...

    I never had any problems getting replacement figures from Mattel. The process was slow, true, but it always moved forward. Send email via website form, wait few days, get response, fill out their...
  15. As a kid, I either got the toys second hand, or...

    As a kid, I either got the toys second hand, or the artwork got quickly thrown out, so I prefer toy accurate designs when possible. Still waiting on a proper Man E Faces.

    Also, the Kobra Khan arms...
  16. The return to the status quo kind of feels like...

    The return to the status quo kind of feels like lazy writing/pandering to me. I'd rather explore the uncertain future than have everything go back to the way it was like in some sort of sitcom. It...

    The ankle rockers have been botched for a while, but no one seems to complain about it (other than me).
  18. I don't especially like the floor polish, it's...

    I don't especially like the floor polish, it's very slow to work, among other problems. I prefer satin clear coat on the joints. Goes on just about as quick super glue, but dries more slowly and is...

    Ya, what Val said. Super 7 is charging you closer to what the actual cost is, while BBTS is rolling the cost in elsewhere. For $4 you can't even ship a single figure any more.

    Got mine, it's awesome, favorite vehicle in the line bar none. The spinning feature makes it.
  21. I think some differences would be good. The...

    I think some differences would be good. The battery pack should remain the same size, but it would be convenient if it used smaller batteries. Same thing with the wire, probably more convenient to do...

    The first few import figures I bought were pretty much perfect, but the more I bought, the more problems I started to see. Quality on import lines is higher for sure (it better be for the higher...

    Import figures at $50+ are not perfect, heck, Hot Toys at $150+ are not perfect, fact is, anything mass produced in China isn't going to be perfect across the board, especially collectibles.

    Interesting, I only brought it up because lines like Mythic Legions don't have that little blurb anywhere I can see about meeting the safety requirements in ASTM F963 (although looking closely at the...

    Very interesting to me that these are still made to fulfill the old safety standards. This is on the back of the Ultimates mailers, same as the Mattel figures:

    My favorite is when I buy something, wait a few days, see no tracking number or "shipped" message, message the seller, then they say "oh, I already sent that out," and then they add a tracking number...

    Agreed on the Sorceress. Marvel Legends has been trying to solve the wings problem for ages, they've tried every iteration, and it seems like people are most happy with a swappable "open" and...

    I can only think that the factory screwed it up, it's not like they cheaped out, the armor is painted, it's just painted the wrong color.
  29. Can't imagine he'll be that much different from...

    Can't imagine he'll be that much different from what we got. What's the point? Seems like there's a long list of CG variants to make first. I'd rather see a toy deco/200x Manny.

    Ya, whoever has the Eldor proto chickening out is lame. Didn't their parents teach them to share?

    Also, from what Brian said, it sounds like the license holders (Mattel) are actually interested in...
