Serious question about Mattel


Ccav
 Share

Recommended Posts

Why is the Batman line for the Movie, so horrible? Why is there nothing but batmans with crap not seen in the movie? Why is every friggin vehicle RC? Why can they not make any other characters besides batman and Joker? why not accurate figures.?

 

Why is Movie Masters the closest thing, and no Harvey Dent? seriously? WTF!

I want some Batman toys, but Mattel Fails in bringing good ones to the table.

 

Same problem happened for Begins and i wanted a few figures, my only options were crappy geared

Batmans and a Horrible looking Raz.

 

 

DC needs to think about going to another company for the movie franchises.

Such a great movie the Dark Knight is, and such a crappy movie line.

 

IMO

Mattel with the new Dark Knight line is giving us (collectors) the movie masters series. For children they are giving everything else. I don't see how that's a problem.. Harvey Dent may or maynot be released but you gotta give them some time for the masters line. Two-Face was not marketed heavily for the movie because they were trying to surprise the audience. Thats why you don't have him lying on the pegs just yet. You've already been given two waves.. Wait and see what the third produces before your ready to jump down their throat..

dude.....i mean no disrespect....but.....quiet please. we have been over this topic several times. MM are aimed at collectors....period. the other figs are aimed directly at children(they com up with a 1,000 bats every movie...duh?) two face wasnt released for 2 reasons. 1...to keep him hush-hush(someone leaked pics that two-face was actually in the film. you wernt supposed to know that until opening day) 2...MM come in waves of 4....he'll be here. the MM line has been better than any other movie line....atleast you get a tumbler, a batpod(coming soon) and more MMs......you sound like youre ranting to me.(IMO) long story short....what thetruth1013 said,

Wasn't there a post that said a Mattel rep confirmed a Two Face in 09? I mean, yeah, it's a wait but......

 

We DID just get a MM Batman Begins AND a Scarecrow, too.

 

I don't know, looking at my Batman and Joker MM figures side by side, hard to say we need BETTER movie toys.

Look at any movie toy line they all have stupid figures that aren't in the movie. Those toys are mainly made for kids bright colors and the joker doesn't look that scary so it won't frighten any small child away from bugging their mom or dad from buying it. Look at the spider-man movie toys they did the same crap they either put something out that was in the movie for 1 second or it wasn't at all movie masters is strongly geared towards adults and collectors cause lets face it the joker toy is creepy looking and it will scare a kid or his parents won't want to buy something like that cause how dark he looks. With the regular movie line they will release 1-5 good figures but most are just repainted or have a stupid action.

I totally agree. I get frustrated that these toy companies tell us that they can't do something awesome because they don't have the money to cover the costs, yet they make hundreds mediocre figures that have a history of not selling and they seem to treat collectors as second class citizens.

Evidently, you've forgotten about Hasbro

 

Or forgotten about Toybiz's very first Batman movie line, or the folks that made that horrid Phantom figure based on the Billy Zane movie.

Or the wretched Mission Impossible 2 figures, or Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, the list goes on and on.

Mattel makes gems compared to other movie toy lines....

They made a good tumbler for this new movie? i was not aware?

All i see is the awful Stealth Launch one thats a plastic shell of a vehicle.

 

I saw the pics from SDCC for the Batpod, that things cool!

 

 

I know the MM line is for collectors, its why i cant find any *shrugs*

I just think its awful that i walk in and see the worst crap ever, and the only thing i

question my self on wanting is a 10$ Tumbler because the larger ones are either RC, or .. boring.

you should judge the stealth launch after you get it. its pretty sturdy, looks good, and if you remove the pod, bats can go in.....its very slick.
