    I don't think kids really play with toys like that anymore, they're mostly glued to phone and tablet games pretty early on. I suppose the younger ones can have fun with Playskool or Imaginext type...

    Yeah but how exactly is Origins an improvement on that front? They are just slightly modified versions of figures that came out 37 years ago, that most of the people who have any interest in the...

    Classics figures only cost $50 because the demand on the secondary market is still strong. The problem is this canít be fixed by just making more because MOTU is a niche brand and while a relatively...

    Ditching Classics for Origins would really be a massive downgrade as far as Iím concerned. The figures are just flat out worse, likely will cost just as much, and will never achieve the same kind of...

    A big multi-pack with a bunch of no name characters would be a hard sell for a crowdfunding campaign. As long as we're brainstorming, why not go for something truly insane, like a Classics-scaled...

    Getting into this line is just really daunting for anybody who wasn't aware of it from the beginning, because outside of the brief day of sale window you could hardly ever buy anything from...

    On one hand, the decision to keep it an adult collector focused line rather than trying to chase the retail market probably allowed the line to have a lot more variety and staying power than it...

    Well this entire line only lasted as long as it did through the sketchy as hell tactic of forcing people to pay for a bunch of figures that they don't want just to get the few they actually do. So...

    I always though the Filmation line was a bit redundant, since there were a lot of Filmation only characters in the main Classics line already, and plenty of other figures drew more inspiration from...

    The main obstacle that MOTU faces these days is that, of the younger generation who are even familiar with the brand, it's largely seen as a joke because of all of the unintentional homoerotic...

    It definitely feels like she is really just saying something more along the lines of "don't bash the original as being sexist and outdated just because you like the new one better" and while I can...

    I do agree with you about the turtles though, they look really good on display but I basically never actually play around with them because they're just not good for posing and playing around with,...

    Thematically it makes some sense to be like that, because Etheria is a peaceful society and the rebels aren't really fighters, and must resist the Horde in other ways. However, it also shows us the...

    The original Voltron was hot garbage, even at the time it was barely watchable and that's not even getting started on the epic train wreck of the Japanese source material. Most of what people...

    There are certain, shall we say, deplorable elements in our society who are convinced that all media needs to return to the standards of the 1950s, and whenever they hear any talk of "diversity" or...

    All the people complaining about "SJW identity politics" are far more obnoxious than whatever agenda the show might be pushing. I don't see how someone can actually be all shocked and appalled that...

    Swiftwind's gruff voice was definitely one of the weirdest things about the original show, and if they carry that over into the reboot it'll definitely scare plenty of kids and kill off any potential...

    If they are going to modernize the show though, it'd be hard not to shake up the cast significantly. I mean, with one exception, the entire main cast consists of white girls with the same supermodel...

    I know they don't do build-a-figures in this line, but Super7 isn't bound by whatever guidelines Mattel or Toyguru may have laid down and Sagitar would be a good candidate if they decide to do a NA...

    As long as you have the money, and have the space to display it all, it's never too late. None of the figures are in such short supply that you'd actually have trouble finding them, they are all...

    Dark Horse: Character Guide and World Compendium

    I'd like to see the storybooks collected at some point too, though reprinting old children's books in glossy hardcover does seem to be a bit weird and would probably make it a hard sell for anyone...

    Strategically speaking, if the goal is to extend the line as much as possible, then Super7 should be throwing as many of boring, unwanted NA figures in the sub as possible, sort of like what Matty...

    As far as NA goes, the 4H have done some pretty amazing work with some admittedly mediocre character designs and made me a fan even though I had little interest in it before stumbling across...
