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

    A good sign.
  2. Problem is, most of those films didn't do well....

    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)....
  3. 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...
  4. How many auctions we talking about? Enough to...

    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...
  5. What people need to remember here (something...

    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...
  7. NA never got the following of the original, but...

    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...
  8. I got two sets originally, and three more this...

    I got two sets originally, and three more this time (maybe; who knows at this point). Not really army building, though; from the originals, I wanted two to use as Troopers in She-Ra displays, one for...

    Actually, a month:

    "The magical portal to collect these newest editions to the Masters of the Universe family will be opened for a limited time only, don’t get left out in the Fright Zone!...

    Okay, just gave it a try; it took the order of 3 troopers, so we'll see what happens. Got a confirmation of the order saying it's being processed, but that's only the first step.
  11. S7 has the license to make figures now, but...

    S7 has the license to make figures now, but they'd have nothing to do with stock manufactured by Mattel. They aren't simply fulfilling things like DR did; they are the actual manufacturer now of...

    I'd be in for at least 3 (the number I had hoped to buy yesterday, but seeing the problems people are having with their orders, maybe I dodged a lot of headaches there), so I guess we're at 86?
  13. Okay, I was joking yesterday, but are we sure DR...

    Okay, I was joking yesterday, but are we sure DR ISN'T handling Mattel's site? Fraud alerts being set off sounds an awful lot like the problems some folks had with DR.
  14. Thing is, we don't know what a full production...

    Thing is, we don't know what a full production run was this time around. Sales on Matty were in the dumps, so this might have been a relatively small run. Might have even been truncated when it...
  15. One last case of Mattel giving fans the finger....

    One last case of Mattel giving fans the finger. Was signed in, going back and refreshing every so often, came up in stock, couldn't put it in the cart. This and putting stuff up at the crack of dawn,...

    Please recall, we got a lot of things in writing from Matty; how many times did that not mean anything? :hmlol: I don't care about the format of information as long as they deliver on the promises...

    So we find out the date the Ultimates are getting shipped, the date when we can order the next round of figures, and are told that we can add extra figures to the full set exactly as we asked.

    I was at that store for the same reason on Saturday; saw the She-Ra, but you must have beaten me to He-Man.:hmlol:
  19. Haven't been in the air since I was a kid;...

    Haven't been in the air since I was a kid; nauseous on a regular plane, tossed cookies on a prop jet (so no small planes for me). Fine in the back of a car, but had to leave my first viewing of Man...

    I would love to see the POG line as it was intended to be finally see release (and I would be surprised to find out that Sharella wasn't planned as a figure for POG somewhere down the line to...

    $25 apiece is probably steep, but we are talking low production numbers, as is the norm with things like this. For me, it wasn't a hard choice, even given the fact I already had the glow versions....
  22. If these are production samples, it means they...

    If these are production samples, it means they were on the cusp of doing a run of them. If they were that far along, S7 should be in a good position to make them.

    It's easy to water down a bit; I usually dip a brush in water then take a dab of the glue and spread it. Good thing is, if it doesn't come out right the first time, it's easy to remove and re-do.

    Saw these at Star Wars Celebration and have seen some pics and general info on the web, but not a lot of details, so I thought I'd share some things one of the Hasbro reps at the booth told me. The...

    Does anyone in hollywood pay attention to the Marvel movies? Yes, things have been tweaked and updated and "made relevant," but the core of the major characters remains intact. Steve Rogers is still...

    Anyone else add a couple extra figures at the last minute because of the alternate head reveals?

    I seriously doubt the Jedi are ending; not the first time we've heard someone saying "the last of the Jedi will you be." It may mean Luke doesn't doesn't survive this film, making Rey the last...

    Hasn't that gone on since the days of the original line (thus the new molds needed for the commemoratives)? I do recall folks at Mattel saying the original molds were likely sold for scrap metal and...
