    But we were told flat out that isn't the purpose of the bios and minis. The stated purpose of both is to maximize the number of characters that can be made in the line. If you look at it that way, as...

    And an alternate version of the Troopers would definitely fill that bill. No, not many are going to get a sub just to get the Troopers. But holding the Troopers back as one of hopefully a number of...

    A good way to get him back out there, and an added incentive to buy the horse. Fisto was a low point in the line, where the problems getting him were purely and solely mistakes on Mattel's part (you...

    Watchmen was one of the most faithful re-tellings of a comic book tale ever put on film; I thought Snyder did an excellent job with it. It's just that that grim and gritty style does not mix well...

    Far as I know, Mattel hasn't changed their stance on the re-issues not being worth making, likely because of the reasons you state. I do think a variant Ram Man in the cardback colors and similar...

    That doesn't mean someone is sitting with a paint brush and doing each eye with gentle brush strokes. "By hand" could just as easily mean taking a paint mask (basically a stencil), putting it over...

    Problem is, there is a growing history of trouble using transparent/translucent plastic for joints. Triklops in the 200x line had the problem with his head initially, and switching to a...

    I may try some of those explosion effects; I had planned to boil and pop my second BA apart at the hips and the shoulder swivel and pop the head off to simulate him blowing apart, and these would...

    Chap Mei makes a bunch of generic lines, some of which have been rolled into TRU's Animal Planet and True Heroes brands. These definitley look similar to something I got with their Beast Warriors...

    I haven't seen Hasbro or any other big names reveal theirs yet, so Mattel may actually be early, comparatively. I would hope we'd see something by Friday, though, with all the "very soon" talk. I...

    Change can be good or bad. Change for the sake of change very rarely turns out good.

    You can look at comic books for examples of both good and bad changes. When DC decided to update their old...

    Zoar and Screech were the eagle that came from Mattel's Big Jim line (just like the cat for Battle Cat and Panthor) cast in new colors with new armor and a perch. They even had the same wing flapping...

    Okay, I enjoyed the movie, and I'll say right off that the previews for this got me excited, while the teaser for Bat v Supes did not. I'm a much bigger DC than Marvel fan, but the Dar Knighting of...
  16. I'd wager the folks who would want just one is...

    I'd wager the folks who would want just one is fairly small here; both are pretty distinct to 200X, and I'd imagine most of the folks who would want either are fans of the era, and would likely want...

    I'm almost certain there will be a Mattypalooza, unless Mattel has officially given in to the notion that Matty is a goner even if the revamped Masters line doesn't make the sub numbers next year....

    He'd basically need a new torso to even be close, so I don't know how anxious Mattel would be to make a new mold of that size for a character who only appeared once. It would allow some re-use of the...

    Both the ripper and Roton would be good choices; neither is too big for Mattel to consider, based on what they've made. After Point Dread, they may be looking for something smaller if they continue...

    Okay, added a few more to add some more variety. Got another ogre/orc type, a couple traditional knights, the minotaur type guy and another dwarf. Gonna have to set aside a MAJOR space for this stuff...

    Today was the street date, so they had a center aisle display for the toys at TRU. Wanted to let folks know because a funny thing happened: I had some rewards coupons, but I also got a 20% discount...

    I really like the alligator head for him; the 200X head looked good, but this is a little more distinct from the other snakes.

    All in all, he looks really good, and it's nice to hear that the arms...

    I've got a nice variety of figures (all the skeletons, some of the varied monsters, and a dwarf), but I am tempted to go in and pre-order a few others just to add some spice. And I may give a serious...

    A bit off topic, but I think a Kardashians movie would be a sign of the Apocolypse, wouldn't it? :hmlol:

    I see the point, but detail for the sake of detail can detract instead of add. There's a lot of detail here already, and I can't really see where jazzing up the armor for its own sake would really...
