    Nice try and much appreciated, but for six figures shipped to continental Europe it's still around 40 euro a figure before customs and VAT. It's too much considering there are so many cool toys...

    To give you an idea of the extent of the problem, I just had to pay 29 euro for the four figures I bought during the black friday matty sale. Phew, that sale turned out to be depressingly expensive...

    Im in the same boat. Works to around 45 euro per figure not including customs. You could argue that Japanese imports are much more expensive, but when you're talking anout reissues of ten-year old...

    shipping to europe came to only 10 dollars on my test cart for four figures. will see how it goes and if more products are added, and maybe i'll round up the collection this week.

    Are you saying that casual fans who might only want He Man and Skeletor must sub for Spast-Or or whoever in order to get them? I don't know if I understood correctly.

    Amazing likeness and great quality in general, but the muscled body is ridiculous. They need a new body for normal 'people'. Spock here looks like he's just been on the cover of Menshealth.

    Thanks. Bonehead simply refuses to see my point. Let's say they made 5000 of a Plundor and 4000 are left, because no one outside of brandonthemattycollecto r and a handful others wanted him. Had it...

    Meh. Why aren't people who clamoured for D-listers like the ones on 'sale' buying fifteen each? Longtime subbers are always going on about how they 'carried the line' for years by subscribing, but...

    Meh, great for people who don't own castle grayskull yet, but for the rest? not even the battle ram and sky sled? Pass ... more money for Star Wars SH Figuarts.

    A more expensive, die cast He Man with paint chips and screws on his back? No thanks.

    I managed to snag two Evil-Lyns last year - that was a nice surprise. Id like to see something like that this year, as Ive still got some A-lister holes to fill. Apart from that - and more...

    That's what you get with fifth-tier characters. I mean, this month's figure was what, Cletus? Something out of 200x? Who wants these characters, outside of the hardcore fanbase? No one, that's who. I...

    hopefully teela will be free. it's not fair that punters should be made to pay for what is a defective figure.

    going to wait for the shf farmboy luke. he'll be 100% plastic, probably with alternate heads, hands, and accessories. buying this hasbro version would be a waste of money. better save that money for...

    Considering the gay undertones, Im surprised no one ever thought of doing this before!

    I didn't collect toys when I was a kid - my parents/relatives didn't buy me enough toys to call it a 'collection'. Adult-wise, it was the Diamond Select Battle of the Planets figures back in 2006-ish.

    Hear hear. If they're going to use the re-releases as lure for new blood, I don't think sub only is the way to go. Casual fans (incredible, but they do exist!) will not sub for a year of obscure...

    Do you guys think those otaku guys (esp older ones) in Japan have it easier, vis a vis the rest of Japanese society, compared to adult collectors in the west? It's not a rhetorical question, I'm just...

    Doesn't Hasbro sell GI Joes exclusively on the net also, nowadays?

    I'm opening this topic because I just realised that 90% of my toy purchases this year were Japanese imports. The only American figures I bought this year were in fact the Mezco DKR Batman and a...

    Re that Hot Toys Marty McFly, what's the use of having such an excellent head sculpt when the wrist joints look like something youd get on a cheap 4 inch figure?
