    Mini Comic Posters

    How would you all feel if they packaged a fold out poster (same size of a mini comic when folded) that featured on one side a comic and on the other a small poster of the cover on the first fold?

    Each comic would either be done by Mattel's inhouse art crew or by comic artists.

    Not to mention, that comic would give a small story featuring the figure it comes along with.

    Yes?
    No?

    Who would you want working on each character?

    Beast Man - Eric Powell
    He-Man - John Romita
    Skeletor - Greg Capullo
    Adora - Frank Cho

    Maybe a poster, but I really don't enjoy comics in this format (like when it was done this way for a brief time on GI Joe stuff several years back). They are awkward to read this way. If it would be a fold-up, I'd prefer two posters or a poster and checklist.

    I know the more is the better but I hate having folded posters.

    So if it's folded, I don't want.
    If not (seperated package) then yes.

    I voted "No"

    I usually vote yes on almost all of these polls, but I voted no on this one. While I'm not a real poster type of guy, I really wouldn't want one that was already folded up. I also agree with joe-or in that as much as I love comics, I don't like having to unfold a giant piece of paper in order to read them.

    I voted "YES!" I don't have the liberty of hanging a bunch of posters at my place (the lady has already given me quite a bit of free reign over what is displayed, she deserves some space too. As a folded item, I could keep them in my MOTU lunchbox when not perusing them, and we would get minis, too! I like this idea quite a bit!
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    No one there is talking about extra heads...

    Yes, but only if it's not at the cost of the extra accessories of the figures.
    I'd hate to loose the extra heads and secret accessories!!! They are much more important to me.
    What I'd love to see above all, is a trade paperback of all previous released mini-comics.

    Had to vote NO.

    Of course I'd like any media I can get. Sign me up....

    ....But realistically it would come at too high a cost, ignoring that they wouldnt/couldnt do this any way so it's unrealistic, but also I'd rather have a full minicomic than a fold out poster.

    Ultimately I'm fine with none.

    I much rather just have the mini comic the vintage fig came with. And why they didnt do this from the gate sucks.

    I voted yes, but the current theme of re-invention which, to me, is no improvement at all, would probably creep into these pages as well...

    I miss the old Alcala mini-comics- the impression was always that each meeting between factions could very well be the last one, unlike the feeling that it was just some whimsical animated series (cough, cough) with an effeminate alter ego (hack, hack) and filled with camp and silliness...
