  1. I forgot to mention the Battle Beasts line that was made by takara and released by Hasbro in North America. While only their arms moved the play value with the lil' guys was very high. I remember being a 5 year old always hoping to get fire on their hologram but getting stuck with wood which just wasn't as cool.
  2. Yes I'm very aware that Toy Biz started in 89' with DC. I was answering Rollo's question about when the marvel and X-Men lines started.
  3. The best part is he's doing the Deadpool movie too. I can't wait to see the Wade Wilson in lantern corps custom figures. Not that it matters the movie will be a flop because it's a DC film not Staring Batman.
  4. Prime is a giant metal P!@@y. Cap's shield would clean take off his head.
  5. Small Joes newest news letter said the 2 7-packs are in transit RIGHT NOW! We WILL have these figures starting next week!
  6. Toy biz started with the Marvel figures in 90' and X-Men in 91'. It really started going fast in 92'. That was my life blood. Any other action figure series was just extra on the side.
  7. I forgot to add test Crash dummies. That was a very strange one. It looked really cool but I never had the urge to buy them. Not while there was still Toy Biz X-Men figures to buy in 92-93 instead! I'm just waiting for the someone to admit they used to (and still do) collect these guys:
  8. I actually meant the closest we got to a James Bond toy line by 1992. I wasn't talking about the stuff made post JBJ. I have all the COPS n Crooks figures but I didn't include them as a fad line becuase they are so damn expensive and sought after now. But YES they would qualify as a Fad toy line. Probably my most favorite fad toy line ever. There are tons of moive toylines that have come and gone very quickly but I don't consider those to be a true "fad toy line". Only those that are created as a toy line first and foremost with the only intent is to get so many kids as possible to fork over their allowance. Here are a few more: Biker Mice from Mars: I thought these were awesome when they first came out. The cartoon was very slick. Captain Planet: Not litering is fun? The cartoon for these things was pretty well done if I remember correctly. And they looked nice but I'm not sure how much play value this line would of had. Pirates of the Dark Water: Another Hasbro line. It was short lived, just one wave. But the cartoon was a hit. Toxic Crusaders: Ok these are in theroy based on the R rated Troma Toxic Avenger movies but the only resemblence is the design of Toxie himself. This was a GREAT line jam packed with gross out humor. What 9 year old boy wouldn't of loved to have all these figures? MUSCLE: Do these count as action figures? I'd say'd maybe but they sure as hell were popular. I can't think of a line that was cheaper to buy.
  9. Remember when the massive toy lines of the 80's were losing steam and some coming to a full stop(MOTU, Transformers) And the most dominant toy line of the 80's, GI Joe took a turn for the worse in 89'? It seemed like every pre existing and new toy company came out of the wood work and starting throwing $hit at the wall to see what would stick. And some of them did stick for about 15 minutes or so. It was the days when the action figure bussiness was still making big money off KIDS(before video games had fully stolen them away) And before the collector boom of the late 90's. What crazy fad toy lines did you guys love and hate? I'll just throw a couple out there to get it started. Hasbro's the Original Battle Trolls: Troll dolls had been sold all over the world since the 50's. But they where just that, DOLLS. In 1992 boys could finally collect them without being called G-A-Y by their friends and older sisters who had their own army of trolls BTW. Bucky O'Hare: Larry Hama created them in the the late 70's but when Hasbro launched the toyline and cartoon in 1990 he had nothing to do with them. In he had maybe they would of lasted longer than one wave? Street Sharks: I never had any but they looked cool? James Bond Jr: Who didn't love James Bond? This was the closest we got to a toy line for the real thing. It could of been a bigger hit if Uncle James made an apperance though. Mighty Max: Well this wasn't a real action figure. It was polly pocket for boys. If you collected this you probably sucked. Barnyard Commandos and Food Fighters: These two seperate lines hit right as the 80's came to a close and they were pretty simple but I was 6 when they first hit shelves and I had to have them!
  10. I ordered mine but I doubt they are coming out in one week! October is much more likely.

    Canada

    I saw all the Rise of Cobra figures at TRU a week ago but no vehicles. I've heard they have been seen in Canada already. Where? What about the PITT?
  12. I haven't gotten any more since Snake eyes and Storm Shadow four days ago. I haven't seen any vehicles at all. I will pick up the Night Raven, Steel Crusher and Mole pod the second I see them. But that is only because they will go so well with the 25th figures. I do have to say that all around the movie figures look much better than we all thought they would. But I will try to stick to my promise of only buying masked characters because they look like the characters and not the actors. So that means under no circumstance will I buy a Duke, Heavy Duty and RIPCORD.
  13. You took a wrong turn the DC board is over THAT WAY. @seeyea@
  14. Swamp Thing(He'll have to be a BAF due to too many new parts needed.
  15. All the figures are out at TRU in Canada. I bought Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow because they look like the characters not the actors due to their masks.
  16. Moon Knight does not deserve to have his own week. Not at all, lol.
  17. it looks realy great. i hope to get mine soon. next week they must arrive. cant wait to have them in hand. those bike were awesome in the movie. loved when john played the guns n roses song to catch one of these bikes Are these 6 inch or the horrible 3 3/4 inch scale?
  18. A lot of Ebay sellers have raised the price of the figure to a buy it now of $500!
  19. If this was my msg board I'd ban guys like you for making smart ass comments like this @smilepunch@ ZING! Guess its good this place is run by professionals eh? @firedevil@ You better be carefull or he'll rearange your displays and tell your parents that you don't know how to display your figures properly.
  20. If this wave is as expensive as the pathetic(pathetic in figure quality, character choices and distrubution) last WM wave then Joker and Man bat are the only two I HAVE to have. I'll get the rest of the wave if the price is the same as all the other DCUC waves sold online. I hold zero hope of finding this at retail when I visit the states. I've NEVER seen ANY Wal-Mart exclusives from any line (Wave 5, Marvel Legends, Masterpiece starscream ect.)
  21. I've seen lots of ebay auctions that include an empty can but none with anything IN it. I'd be willing to pay like $30 for a full can and they used to sell for what? $2?
