    Sadly, likely, true. And for once I can't really blame Mattel for that; from everything we saw, a big part of the Classics demise was DC insisting that their beloved Nu52 be the be all, end all of...

    Wow, that's ridiculous (my theories of DR still running on DOS are re-emerging) to the point of being almost unfathomable at this point. I thought the subscription page was supposed to allow folks...

    I honestly wonder if we'll even have much contact with the new person. The line is waning, Matty is waning, and we're basically in maintenance mode waiting for the end of both. Now, maybe we'll get...

    Just got the mini set and a Damien. Hard to believe DCUC is sadly done; that series should have become a mainstay like Marvel Legends. I'd hope it might be brought back someday like Legends was,...

    I'd definitely get one if it were made, but, honestly, the original is big enough to look good with the MOTUC figures. Boil and pop the boots off a figure with a boot cut and they will sit in the...

    Giant DC figures at Walmart

    Wasn't in on the Black Friday madness, but it seems Walmart has/had some exclusive two packs, one with repaints of the Batman and Joker I've seen out separately packed, the second with Nu52 versions...

    A really good episode, finallyshowing Reverse Flash in action. Having Barry basically lose his first bout with Zoom was logical and goes a bit against the expected. Barry would have been in real...

    I'm like a lot of the folks posting here; I don't like the taste at all. Last year a friend was very proud of herself that she took me to my very first "dive bar," but even there, I just nursed a...

    And that's the problem; if Matty was going to survive, Mattel NEEDED to put some effort and money into it to promote it. The marketing strategy of "plop the site on the net and we're done" has one...

    New from Matty:

    Dear Scott Metzger,
    In an effort to cancel your 2015 Mini Subscription, a refund notification was sent out stating you need to return your item(s). Please disregard it! We are...

    We do some funky things with our toys, don't we?:hmlol:

    There's a good idea; release the ones already in the pipeline and maybe a couple extra using the budget set aside for SDCC. The first minis set was such an exclusive, so it seems appropriate for the...

    I like that idea a lot, and there's more than one way to use them. Some clever member here took one of the bands and stuck it on Catra's thigh like a garter, and I've used both of the bands I've...

    Stratos turned out well, although the jet pack being crammed in with him left the tops bent in together a little. Easy fix with hot water and an ice cube, though, so no major problem there. Both he...

  16. Speculation: Who would want a Horde 6 figure sub for 2015?

    THe thread about the Dylamug trademark got me thinking: he'd be a great lure for a Horde sub in 2015, if an add-on sub is even possible. The Horde is a faction that sells well, and a six figure sub...

    Ask the original Captain Marvel, who now has to be referred to as Shazam! Trademark and copyright laws are extraordinarily complex, but in the real world, if you don't use a trademark, you risk...

    I wonder if the wings from Draego Man and Granamyr could simply have the plug part altered (it is a separate piece from the wings) and then be used for the horde steed? That would be a very cool...

    THe only other classic She-Ra variant is Starburst, and the only real feature there was a glittery cape. He-Man's variants at least had some sort of feature that could be translated into the...

    Lower the price? Are you mad, man? Why, back when the goofy accessory laden Justice League figures weren't selling at retail, they stripped down the useless junk, gave them one accessory, and sold...

    I'm re-watching the series now, getting into season 3, and am still amazed at how exquisite this show was. Story, character, action, suspense, continuity; it's still better than most of the shows,...

    Last official word I saw on the beavers is that only those two are planned for now and sales will determine if the other two are made. Given the extreme corner cutting we've been seeing from...

    Keaton had to lean his whole torso back to look up, as well. They could have made the torso and head all one piece and still been 100% movie accurate.:hmlol:

    CNN had it reversed this morning, saying Smith was the Joker (which could have been interesting, actually). Sounds like it's taking cues from the original, pre-New 52 stuff (a good thing). No...

    Arrow came, and I'm pleased with the horsey. Maybe not the most thrilling choice, but re-use of the horse mold was inevitable, and Arrow had more screen time than any other horse short of Swifty, so...

    Got TL Monday night; only problems are the lack of the rockers on his ankles (it really shows up more with him than it would with somebody with normal feet when posing) and the bobble head syndrome. ...

    Given the info we had about how far it was from the 100% mark a few days before the sub closed, I think this was pretty well expected. Too bad this is all we get, but the price was just way too far...
