  1. Heh, that doesn't explain why the GIJOE 12" 40th anniversary line ( amongst other toys...)aren't being made or sold anymore. Fact is that if a toyline goes on discount it HAS failed, and the retailers that ordered it will not order it anymore because they cannot profit off of it. If your argument is that the retailer is still making money even under a steep discount, then toylines like that would still continue. The 40th anniversary product DID sell, but ONLY at discount ( regular retail price was $39.99 in most places, common discount was to $14.99), and many retailers actually debuted t
  2. Wait a minute..I'm REALLY confused. You think the black suit Superman is "stupid". Yet...You like it, and you "bought 5 of them"...Even though you think "this version sucks"...And, it's also "crude and stupid". Are you trying to say that you like the idea of Black-Suit Superman, you just don't like the way this one was done? Otherwise, this is a schizophrenic post. Help me... #US1#
  3. and yet your looking at thread that are talking about them and replying to those threads. Me, I'm just gonna get those redone Joe figures for a few extra figures. So??? What's your point? Do you have one?? #US1#
  4. My pleasure. No, I'm not a student or a professor. I do have an MBA, and 12 years experience in marketing and sales. #US1# Actually, let me make a change to something I previously stated about HASBRO's distribution. HASBRO most certainly DOES sell directly to the retailers. In fact, HASBRO sells directly to you and me, the end users, via the internet. So it would appear that they do all of their own distribution without going through wholesalers. Makes complete sense; HASBRO is a big company, they'd understand how it works. What's also interesting is that HASBRO sells direct

    New Venom?????

    Looks like "Bizarnage", from AMALGAM COMICS. All I can say is "Uggh". When it comes to Spiderman, Marvel is running on empty...Completely devoid of any real ideas. #US1# PS How soon 'till HASBRO repaints the movie Venom and releases this figure? I'd say before 2009.
  6. You've asked a lot of good questions. Let me see if I can answer them for you. First (and generally speaking), the manufacturer makes their money by selling to wholesalers and retailers. Wholesalers are often "middlemen". They sell directly to the retailers. The retailers (TRU, Target, WalMart) are, for the most part, the ones who sell to you and me. So why do we need wholesalers? Well, for the most part, the wholesalers are often responsible for distribution (Like DIAMOND). They make sure the product gets to the retailers shelves. Some industries cut out the middle-men, and s
  7. So you think it looks like total crap, but you're still going to buy it on clearance? ...weird. what weird is people buying them on clearance period? Don't they realise that why the series is failing (well according to some.) if you can't pay the price then don't collect. So, in other words...Never, ever look for a bargain?? And if you do, you're somehow responsible for the line's potential demise??? That's ILLOGICAL. By the time a figure is on the pegs, it's ALREADY been sold, and the manufacturer has ALREADY made their money. It makes no difference whethe
  8. Interesting. I was starting to think that you didn't understand the meaning of the word IGNORE. Just for clarity's sake, let's obtain a definition, then we can discuss it in-depth. ig·nore Pronunciation: \ig-ˈnȯr\ Function: transitive verb Inflected Form(s): ig·nored; ig·nor·ing Etymology: obsolete ignore to be ignorant of, from French ignorer, from Latin ignorare, from ignarus ignorant, unknown, from in- + gnoscere, noscere to know — more at know Date: 1801 1 : to refuse to take notice of 2 : to reject (a bill of indictment) as ungrounded Looks like # 1 above is the
  9. Grodd is a gorilla. The BAF looks like a Gorilla. Works for me. #US1#
  10. Well, admittedly, it's not as funny (or sophisticated!) as a guy in a dress prancing around the stage for another yuletide pantomime...But it's still got a certain charm all it's own. BTW...Nice to have you back! So much for IGNORE (as if!) @loll@
  11. Hulk Movie Figs? MAJOR thumbs down. Cra* of the first order. Hulk LEGENDS? I'd give them 6/10. I love Hulk figs - they're big and chunky and look great on my desk at work. I'm glad to finally be getting a Doc Samson (in his Silver-Age costume, no less!). "King Hulk" looks cool, as does the "Skar, Son of Hulk", or whatever they're calling him. I also like the Savage Grey Hulk, The End Hulk, and the Savage SHe-Hulk. AND...let's not forget about the Fin-Fang Foom. What I'm not excited about is paying $15 per figure. And I'm bummed about the AWOL Valkyrie and Red King. #US1
  12. I are also wanting a SUNFIRE. He wood be so kool. #US1#
  13. Joe Q Hasbro says: "If we make cra*, they will buy it." Wise words, Joe. Wise words. #US1#
  14. Cool. I hated that whole story-line. Stan Lee would never have let Marvel's characters be de-based in this puerile manner. I'm glad the "suits" put a stop to it. Gratuitous violence is the antithesis of clever writing. #US1#
  15. Joe Q. Hasbro says: "No, not weird at all. RED HULK is right up Hasbro's alley. In other words, RE-PAINT CITY!!!!! We've got a zillion Hulk molds to choose from! Mix 'em and match 'em! Then dye it all RED! The $$ savings are astronomical!!! What??? Fans don't want a RED HULK???? Yeah, right...Like we care! Don't worry, they'll buy it anyway! It's a BAF!" #US1#
