  1. If we look more closely at the packaging seen here the numbering is on the top of the boxes. There's hardly any way that the PD "Pimp Daddy" Destro would be a mass market mainline figure. Here he's showing a higher number of #15 so the next 5 figures (if we're sticking with 5 per wave like the first one) would be #06 Cobra Commander, #07 Gung-Ho, #08 Red Ninja, and then two more slots for #9 & #10. I'm thinking that those could be the comic versions of Baroness and Storm Shadow as it would be completely weird for Hasbro to offer up a generic red ninja before the main baddie.
  2. As both a collector and a comic book creator I think this that this piece is a fine low-end solution to those of us who can't afford the $175-200 Hot Toys pieces. This will be $35-40.00 which for a fine sculpted Four Horsemen piece (which I've seen in person at NYCC) isn't a bad shake. I'm sure what I saw was a prototype though. I'm a fan of the 7" Movie Masters and and hoping against hope that the smaller line isn't cancelled as some are rumoring to be the case.
  3. WOW. Playmates might be saving me some money too! The Terminator stuff was god awful. No wonder they don't answer your calls and hide their US-based phone number on their website! My friend is a dealer trying to get an appointment with them for the 2009 US Toy Fair and it's been a pain just trying to get someone from Playmates to pick up a phone or to reply to emails. I don't think that this is the WORST figure ever made and in their defense it IS most likely a prototype shot, but the hair is neon, the likeness for a 6" figure is questionable and the way-too-deep relief textured sculpting
  4. I actually came across an entire set here in Boston all with the Smashing Punch Iron Monger and the blue coloring. I was kind of pissed since I've cut back a lot on collecting and only really collect movie accurate or well rendered pieces. At the same time I'm one of those people who loves to collect his set as soon as possible meaning that I snag a set as soon as they start appearing at the stores. This case in point applies to the new Premium Transformers line also by Hasbro. You get the same box with subtle wording changes on the back, but essentially there's a set of Leader Class movie
  5. I'm just saying that I'm a fan and collector too. I'm looking forward to seeing stuff based on our books for the first time and that the new Shocker Stuff looks great. And why can't we all get along. lol
  6. Hey Guys, I'm not looking to argue here as I've been waiting a while to see our first comics-to-toys property happen sooner than later. We're signed on with ###### and Shocker Toys and these new shots (although a bit late getting here) look great!. Articulation looks great too! I've been in the comic book business since 2001 when we started out with Roaring Studios (now Dabel Brothers Productions) and then eventually took over as publisher when they unexpectedly regrouped shortly after we were hitting shelves for the first time. It's taken me over a year to get a book that's already been p
  7. Thanks for your response, Reideen. While I'm not 100% thrilled about your initial tone (one that bloggers and talkbackers seem to take while hidden behind online anonymity). That being said I'm not here to argue or fight with anyone I'm here to chat toys to try to educate and to be educated. I'm man enough to admit where I may be wrong or lacking a full story. Just as you have a right to peacefully correct these wrongs – I have rights in posting here about anything I'd like to share. Where and when Shocker might be posting is beyond my knowledge since I posted this freely with the pri
  8. Hey Guys, As a comic book writer/creator since 2000 and a toy collector since damn near birth I can't deny that these protos looks great especially for the Darkness and the Pitt B.A.F., however I just hope that the love for independents continues and that the smaller company that started this push isn't lost in the buzz of this new announcement. I'm talking about the initial movement by ###### Beckett from Shocker Toys and their original series called INDIE SPOTLIGHT that's been in the making for quite some time now. They're more famous for their unique block figures called 'Shockinis'
