    Can't wait for Snake Face or Strobo, but the video...I expected to see those two boxy guys and the dog from the "Money for nothing" (I want my MTV video) by Dire Straits to show up any minute

    Cheers,
    I couldnt really see the video at work. I only heard TG say at the end that he comes with the staff.
    I just rewatched the video and see that SF is wearing the shield.

    You would expect TG to have a better camera now that he is a dad.
    Kudos for posting a video though

    I noticed as well. I even posted on AskMatty as I remembered reading a few months back, Scott had said the only change he knew of was that the body snakes color being changed from red to green.

    He replied it was a 4H design choice and that he would ask about it next time he speaks to them.

    Blurry videos are better than no videos.

    You can't tell me that no one in his office has a smart phone or an ipad with an HD camera. This is getting to be ridiculous. By being a brand manager, he should step into the 2010's. Amateur video is almost all shot in HD now, because almost every device has it.

    As far as if the resolution bump would be competition for Pixel Dan, that is a joke. He is a talented professional videographer. He has custom lighting, editing, his own camera operator (wife), music and voice overs. By making these videos HD he would just be saving us all from squinting at this point, not taking Dan's job.

    Nope, the snakes inside the stactions' chest were unpainted. I have mine displayed with them folded out. The red markings on the outside are just part of his armour. Besides, Classics Snake Face is an update of the vintage figure, with virtually no influence taken from the 200x redesign at all. Plus, we were told by Mattel that they would be green.

    I throw out my boxes unless they are imports, so they could just come in a blank mailer and I would be happy.
    Can someone PM me the US number for Matty? I want to talk to someone who might has a clue of what is going on.

    Can't they afford a better camera at Mattel? Or is that honestly just someone’s camera phone? Even if you click on the "HD" options, the picture quality is still atrocious.

    Everyone assumes it's a bad camera, but it could just be when they convert it to go on YouTube they choose a low setting. An HD video uploaded to YouTube can take an hour or more to upload even on a good connection. If Mattel is anything like my work place, IT might not even let them upload high quality files.

    Well, all MOTUCS are imports to me!
    But I got your point, what I'm really trying to say here,is that if this is called a collectors line it should be treated as it, from packaging to costumer service.If the package is "collector friendly" with some great art, most of us would keep it.

    Sorry, by imports I mean Japanese collector's items. Those are the only things I will save the boxes to anymore, but I will admit, it is getting hard to do so since I now have like 50 of them.

    It is uploaded in high quality. The Matty logo at the beginning is in HD, then the video Scott takes is in low res. Mattel's IT might wan to consider getting a "good" connection to compete with ANY other real corporation. When overly attached girlfriend can make HD videos, I think Matty can handle it.

    It's not a real big deal, but it is a glaring issue that could easily be improved.

    Man, that Watchmen packaging looks really awesome.

    I'm not too fussed over video quality, and I get that these are for fun / quick information.
    Still, some of the details were lost there and a little better lighting/camera work might go a long way.

    But the video definitely served it's purpose for me... I'm excited to see more.
