Pricey indeed, in other stores the dinos are priced $35 bucks, here in Mexico Amazon is charging like $50 for the JP raptor, a little exaggerated to be basically repaints with a single accessory, the dilophosaurus was OK 'cause it comes with more stuff, I like it but it's kinda hard for me to step into this line.

Charlie, Blue y el Dilophosaurus están entre 598-672. No están tan caros. TAN. El original si está arriba de 1000, que se me hace una mamada. Pero el humano que si están vendiendo (nedry) está en 500... que es el precio estándar para la escala. Hasta más barato que en EEUU. No sabía que tú también eras mexa! Saludos!

Ha!, I knew it, eventually they would make Predators toys too, these Xenomorphs could not come alone without some Yautja friends to play with them.

I apologize if this is not the appropriate thread for this...

Currently I am working with a colleague on a novel. Here is a short synopsis of it if you are needing some context: https://www.overlordsofthecosmos.com/what-is-ootc

Anyway, as we have plugged along on this literary endeavor, it occurred to me that it would be extremely cool if I could have one of the protagonists of the novel (Fearsome Phantos) prototyped... just for fun.

Well, that snowballed into the possibility of launching a full-fledged line of figures inspired by the Overlords of the Cosmos, a fictional property based on Masters of the Universe that plays a pivotal role in the novel. And it kept snowballing. Now I'm considering making another aspect of the novel a part of this action figure line... the "Create-A-Character" contest. In the novel, the main protagonist enters such a contest. How cool would it be to hold open submission periods so that peers could vote on the design they want included in the line? This could be a reoccurring feature, though how often it might take place is undecided at this point.

We're early in the process, but Fearsome Phantos is being prototyped "as we speak". Once his design is perfect, it'll be time to decide how many I want produced.

I could really use any input and feedback that others have as we head down this road to see where it leads. I'm uncertain at this time about a lot of things, but means of distribution and the quantity we'll need are chief among them. In the meantime, here are design sketches that I have created for the current lineup of characters (from left to right... "Skullagar", "Fearsome Phantos", "EyeSpy", "Masculon", "Munch Mouth", "Mace Ace", "Vile-Ette", "Defendra", "Creecharr", "Flip Grip") as well as packaging design images:

I thought I'd send over this little fun tidbit of information on the Power Rangers Lightning collection

it seems as though Pumpkin Rapper and King Sphinx have been recalled, and are no longer being sold in Canada (this information comes from several EB employees), all of the figures on pre-order have been cancelled and any that hit shelves have been removed, from the information that I have gotten this is likely due to the horrendous lackluster paint applications on both figures faces. I presume Hasbro has heard the complaints and probably now recognized that they attempted to pass the consumers a poor product. I think it's sort of humorous that we continue to see the negligence of the Lightning collection team currently at Hasbro and how they keep falling asleep at the wheel with this line, from the White Dino ranger issue, to the unannounced releases and now more bad paint apps or well none.

Hmm interesting. Its odd they would cancel and not just do a running change if that was the case, but thanks for the heads up.
