  1. I don't get it Do they no longer want Gi Joe to go on? There are major deaths and the best confrontation in the Joe Universe will be no more Storm Shadow IS NOT DEAD. No way. He will survive.
  2. That Storm Shadow is Hella Cool and the only must have from wave 14. We're getting Zap in the net only 7-pack so who cares about missing this single carded one.
  3. Those were some weak ass explosives. Step your destruction game up.
  4. Because we are Fanboys. Bickering and arguing is WHAT WE DO!
  5. If you look closly resolute Zartan is based off of the 25th Wave 3 Zartan from 2007. So there is no need for a "resolute Zartan" Plus I highly doubt we are getting anymore resolute figures anyways.
  6. Vigilante is a simple Punisher rip-off. Right down to the fact that his family was killed by mobsters. The only difference is the Vigilante does not like killing, but he still did it. The Punisher was hardly the most original character to begin with...but to put a wrinkle in your certainty...the original Vigilante appeared a few decades before the Punisher. The second one (the one we're getting in the DCUC line) is both a "legacy" hero and a Punisher rip-off (and a Snake-Eyes rip-off, to boot). The first Vigilante was a damn Cowboy. The 1985 version done by DCUC is a blantant Punisher rip-off. And a poorly done one at that.
  7. They ARE selling well, but they are NOT selling ( nor being produced) in the quantities that some deluded people think. The misconceptions come from the observations people have of their local stores; they either find them mostly sold out, or not in stock at all--and they hear a claim or two from someone else elswhere and conclude that they MUST be selling out nationwide. It overlooks the fact that these are being made in much smaller amounts so the supply is more accurately meeting the actual demand. 10,000 DC figures ( and example) selling out to 10,000 collectors is a "success" ( because it sells out), but that's just 10,000--something like Star Wars sells well over 100,000 of a given figure. The DC figures cannot attain , or sustain, those kinds of stratospheric sales numbers to make them a true sales success and THIS is where the deluded are tripping up. The projections and expected sales figures for these toys are VERY tame compared to the truly popular toy lines these days (Star Wars)--the fact that they sell out in many places simply says that the supply is adequate to meet the demand. (Just look at the pegs space for DCUC and Star Wars for the biggest hint...) And if anyone doubts that... look no further than Hasbro's Marvel Legends wave 1, in which they themselves got suckered into the same delusions--and produced quantities that far outstripped the demand. If DCUC was produced in quantities that the deluded THINK the market supports, we'd see these toys peg-warming in massive amounts. The current marketplace cannot and will not sustain that kind of thing, especially for a toy line without other media support at this time. The quantities that Mattel are making and the demand are clearing allowing this line pay for itself, but they are not lighting the world in fire with the profits. This is why the line maintains a strict policy of extensive re-use of parts, top-tier characters in each wave, re-issued characters with no C&C parts, and no vehicles or playsets planned--simply because cutting productions costs means they stay profitable. Let the truth be told. DCUC's production numbers are tiny. Nuff' Said.
  8. What great dialogue! DC is going to be breaking down your door to get you on their staff! Or they might just pay you to stop making their characters that much more cheesier than they already are, LOL
  9. Since when are we getting that Monkey Wrench figure? I'm very happy he is coming but where are his trademark sunglasses? I guy who blows things up for a living needs some eye wear protection.
  10. They changed Snake Eyes and Storm shadow's origin. WEAK.
  11. Vigilante is a simple Punisher rip-off. Right down to the fact that his family was killed by mobsters. The only difference is the Vigilante does not like killing, but he still did it.
  12. someone hurry up and post it on Torrent for us Canadians!
  13. an armored variant would require too much new sculpting. And that is NOT going to happen!
  14. The guy in your videos is a talentless putz. Are you his agent or something?

  15. We will now have a 7 inch Daredevil to go with our 7 inch Wolverine that will fit in PERFECTLY with out ML collections. WEAK http://i.marvelousnews.com/g/index.php?mode=view&album=Diamond%2FMarvel_Select%2FDaredevil&pic=Daredevil.jpg&dispsize=600&start=0 This DD is average at best but still much worse than Face Off and nemesis DD. Plus we just got Icons DD. What happened to MS saying they would be making larger sized characters?
  16. Seconded. My douche alarm keeps going off. Be carefull not to let any of it splash on your face.
  17. Start to cut coners? They ALREADY use the exact same body for every figure. The only new sculpt we get is the head and the odd piece here or there.
  18. Very true. When we had the huge 3 story Virgin Records store here in Vancouver (it's been HMV for almost 4 years now) they carried lots of Action Figures and often had a large display near the front entrance. I doubt they were a big seller but their presence reminded casual collectors that new stuff was available. Now there is nothing. I would love to see the production numbers for DCUC. I guarantee it is miles below any other large mass retail toyline. That includes all the 2008 Hasbro Marvel Legends offerings.
  19. DCUC is not "doing well" by mainstream standards. There is a large fanboy demand for it but the amount of figures produced is smaller compared to any other large retail line. I have only seen wave 1 of DCUC at retail and not a single figure since. Neither is Canada or on my monthly toy runs in the States. These figures are hard to come by and therefore online retailers like BBTS are making a killing. So many fans have to turn to online sales because they can't find them at retail
  20. Two simple reasons: 1. These are the first ever 6 inch super articulated(ok not THAT articulated) figures that borrow from Marvel Legends greatness. DC Direct just does not cut it. 2. Marvel Legends is on a hiatus and fanboys are hooked on the scale and type of figure. DC Direct just does not cut it.
  21. Most people who don't know better will think he was made by Hasbro for the modern line!
