    I'm not disagreeing with you, so I'm not sure why you posted that.



    That's a very narrow minded way of looking at this issue in my opinion. Why should those of us who are fans of the range,...
  2. I think that it's also important to point out...

    I think that it's also important to point out that a number of people, including myself, experienced server problems today trying to purchase figures. That, combined with the fact that Mattel...
  3. The problem with the sub, and I alluded to this...

    The problem with the sub, and I alluded to this some months ago when I was last on, is that for those of us who actually don't want all the figures, it's not value for money. It's really extremely...

    I too had that tape referred to in the opening post. That cassette was simply amazing. I damaged it by listening too it too often, and recording too heavily on the blank second side, but most of it...

     NA   One aspect of the New Adventures cartoons that I...

    One aspect of the New Adventures cartoons that I never liked was how weak Skeletor was in comparison to Brakk (as his figure was called in the UK, so I always use that name), but I digress....

    At least you got a set, some of us didn't even get that.

    To answer your broader question, however, then yes, I'm feeling the pinch. I don't blame Mattel for a lot of the financial costs though,...

    My faith in Mattel was exhausted some time ago. It's just a really short sighted bit of thinking to put Mantenna and the Horde Troopers on sale in the same month in my opinion. How they did not...

    Well, that was the fiasco I expected. If Mattel persist in putting two very popular choices on sale on the same month, it's bound to cause the server to crash, and that's exactly what happened. In...

    There were differences between the UK and the US in terms of the names of the characters, so there are likely to have been other differences too.



    Thanks for bringing this to our attention. I...

    It seems unfair to me to assume that everyone can afford the subscription, and wants every figure associated with it. To my mind, it was never part of collecting a toy range that you had to sign up...

    I'd also like to see Lizzor next. He's one of my favourites, and I think that the New Adventures models that have been produced so far have been very good, so I don't think I'd be disappointed.

    I managed to get Jitsu, but missed out on Ram Man, but there was a silver lining (see my post in the Ram Man thread).

    For the first time, there was no white screen of death for me, but I was a few...

    He sold out before I got a chance to buy him. That said, the international shipping costs now are such that it's just as well. It was enough to pay for Jitsu, let alone another figure. I can't...

    Thanks for another entertaining video Dan.

    I'm most looking forward to Ram Man, Jitsu, and Karati from the figures that were on display there.

    I agree with others that Castle Greyskull sounds...

    I can't say I remember all that many of these episodes, and I thought that I'd seen most of them. That said, I haven't watched the New Adventures since it was last repeated on UK television back in...
  16. Sticky:  NA   I'm a bit confused by that, because, certainly in...

    I'm a bit confused by that, because, certainly in the UK at least, Staghorn, Earthquake, and Butthead went on sale long after Optikk, Lizzor, and Karati, yet the first three received substantially...

    I hope that I'm not too late to put my vote in for Lizzor.

    I loved the New Adventures toys first time around, so I'm really pleased that more of the New Adventures sculpts are being updated for the Classics line. I really like the pictures of Karati, and...

    I don't get on here much, so I'm catching up with the news. I'm really looking forward to the Karati figure, as I've loved the updated New Adventures figures so far, and this prototype looks really...

    I have to agree with you that the scientists were a disaster (sorry). I think that perhaps there were a few too many additional characters added to the cartoon which didn't relate to the toy range,...

    Thanks for another great review Dan. I really enjoy your enthusiasm.

    I haven't decided whether to pick up Mekaneck yet, but I must say that the paint job is pretty impressive in terms of the...

    There seemed to be quite a strong emphasis on comedy in the New Adventures cartoons (the scientists whose names I thankfully can't recall being the obvious example). Was this intentional in the...

    I've been impressed with the Horde figures which have been released so far, and I hope that the trend continues with Mantenna. I tend to agree the majority who voted in that poll that a mixture of...

    I could do without the Rock People and the Snakemen. They have appealed to me less and less the older I have become.

    Ideally, of course, nobody should have to 'do without', so to speak, as there...

    I have to agree that there is some excellent artwork on display there. I didn't expect to like that restyle of Evil-Lyn, but I do, because it just suits the colours.

    It's the first Masters of the Universe comic that I've even looked at since the last comic series, based on the 2002/3 cartoon, disappeared from sale in the UK a number years ago. I didn't get very...

    Hello Everyone

    Greetings one and all.

    I just thought I would say hello. I don't know how much I'll post, but I've collected He-Man figures since the 1980s, and browsed this site as a guest for a number of...
