    It should be interesting to see how they approach it. I like most of Moore's work, but this was way over-hyped at the time. To me, it was average at best, and the ending was ridiculously forced. To...

    THere's some question as to whether or not the black line will continue; the wave coming on Force Friday is the same one that's out already. It's a shame, because it seems the golden age of...

    I still count the Unnamed One. We never saw the original concept of what he was to be in the POG saga, and I do not now nor will I ever accept the "scary Trollan" we got as anything but a poorly...

    The face was okay, maybe not as dead on as others, though. But, yes, the wings were a monumental catastrophe. I do think material wings with the feather design printed on would be a vast improvement.

    I would be interested in these, as well. They are a novelty more than anything, but, as distinct characters from the existing MOTU folks, they could easily be worked in. And given that they are...

    Fallen behind on reading the books; seeing the scenes included in the thread, wow, I'd forgotten how incredibly stiff and stilted the dialogue is, as bad or worse than any of the old mini-comics....

    That's actually a long standing trend making a comeback. The upcoming Super Friends/Legion of Doom Mego-type figures from Figures Toy Company are done the same way; in those cases, based on the even...

    As a big Filmation fan, I can understand that perspective, and I think that is exactly the perspective the new Filmation line is aimed at. That's never been the aim of the classics line, though, and...

    I agree; this would be a special item that would appeal directly to the old time fans who make up most of the MOTUC market. While I had no problem with the figures mentioned here, I do think...

    Tempted to take them up on this. I've wanted a second Sea Hawk to perhaps customize into his father, and Entrapta has a good base body for customs. Picking out a number three would make it worthwhile...

    I know a lot of folks have wanted the Collector for a while, and it was an important part of the cartoon, but it would be a big thing to make. It would have to be scaled down to a simple two seater...

    It's too bad the original molds are probably part of some anchor at the bottom of the ocean right now (I heard long ago that Mattel sold off the old molds as scrap metal), because the original towers...

    Not sure where this is coming from, especially the part about major pieces being handled by tooling. Minor details can sometimes be changed; something like adding a slit to the boot cuffs (which...

    Given how many kids were featured in some capacity in the show, there is a good amount of re-use built in if Mattel wants to go that route. Stanlin wouldn't necessarily be a one use set of molds, and...

    You apparently haven't seen a lot of the figure from DCUC or Marvel Legends. Classic Firestorm made with the inaccurate parts from the modern Firestorm was a good example from DCUC, and there have...

    As I ignore the bios completely, it makes little difference to me if she's ancluded with Carnivous' people. I do think it would take away some from her story and character, though, to go that way....

    Problem with shouting heads is it's often hard to tell if they are yelling or simply having problems moving the heavy fiber from the royal dinner the night before...:hmlol:

    Got my BS Hordikins, and the figure turned out as well as would be expected. Aside from the pop-open chest, there's just not a lot here to thrill. I think part of it is that the original figure was...

    Got my Maras, and both were fine. The paint on the face is quite good, and the eyes are downright penetrating. The combo of toy and toon looks really good, and the deadly ponytail, though ludicrous...

    As for TG's explanation, given that we know for a fact there have been significant and well documented upheavals in Mattel's management from the very top on...

    Only odd thing was it recognized BOTH of my e-mail addys which forced me to change password to continue (since my problems with Matty a few years back, I use a lot of different passwords, and didn't...

    No. it should be a crying Hordak head to go along with the upcoming Perfuma, made so you could just hear poor Hordikins weeping, "Flowers! Floooowwwweeerrrrsss!!!!!" :hmlol:

    At this point, I have to agree on that. We've got folks who don't really know the law citing evidence that on the surface supports their assertions, but who may not fully understand how such things...

    Disappointing, but not surprising; with the lower price next year, I was rather surprised to see him included with Vultak. I definitely think a two pack of him and Kowla would be attractive to...

    In retrospect, you're probably right on this count. Two lawyers can look at the same set of laws and argue two entirely different, opposing cases, so, while interesting, I guess the legal back and...

    As long as they will continue to be available outside the con, I'd say there are a few that would likely do well:
    Mini/cardback Rammy. I think a lot of fans would love a second chance at him, and...

    I don't know if he'll be able to talk about something so specific; we don't know what kind of agreement he had to sign with Mattel when he left about disclosing information. He's actually said a LOT...

    You forgot pachyderm.:hmlol:

    Really, though, by this logic, He-Man doesn't really fit his own line. He's just a really strong barbarian.:hmwink:

    That's why I think Tamusk would be a good...

    The problem is, the people who "only know how to use Google" have brought up both actual laws and statutes, and No-Ah actually cited a very relevant example of actual case law in Florida, a ruling...

    THank you, and some very good info there. Never considered the virtual machine route before (didn't really know much about it). Thanks for delineating the options.:hmgrin:
