  1. That Shazam had the ugliest face ever. He looked like Peter Griffin from Family Guy.
  2. I think I speak for everyone that.... that is a load of crap!!! And by the time spring rolls around alot of people want even be interested any more. Its almost like mattel wants there hotest toy lines to die off. But they continue to make cars line toys and that movie has been well forgottin about. It just makes me wantt to scream. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH actually you dont speak for me at all I am not gonna lose interest in this, and relax it is not that big of a deal just gotta be laid back we will see pics of new movie masters between now and toyfair and nycc which are less than 2 months away So you dont think there excuses are a load of crap???? I don't care thats all Personally I think that just arguing back and forth if you care or if you want lose interest serves no purpose but either way I think that its true that Mattel is pulling something strange here, why would they want to wait till 09 to add to the line? Christmas shopping season should be the target they are going for. It doesn't make any sense why they would want to hold off. And Pooda, were you referring to movie Two Face or like the character in general?
  3. You mean to tell me you realy bought all those lame ass excuses about plastic and oil price!? People there is not now nor will there ever be a plastic shortage. I realy dont kn ow what the hell Mattel's problem is but i totaly agree with you Eric about this lame attempt at repaints after this long ass MM drought. I dont even know why i bother. i'm just about done with Mattel, im headed back to the world of DCD after wave 8 of DCUC. I've always wanted a Gentelman Ghost!!! And if i score him, then im gonna call it quits for DCUC and all the rest of Mattel . I'm tired of their B.S.!!! @rambo@ I know man, I didn't buy the whole cost of plastic BS either. I mean come on, there is no problem with Lego or Hasbro and Star Wars producing toys so why is Mattel having so much trouble with the cost of plastic. If there is any shred of truth to the whole plastic thing they need to switch suppliers. But most likely its just another stupid excuse from Mattel on why they can't get figures out there. Lets mark that one under, the Two Face design was held back too late in the figure making process so we can't get one out till 09, and above, MMs have been temporarily recalled due to safety issues. not true. the price of plastc is the exact reason hasbro gave for the price spike on the MLs.(1st excuse among others) im not saying its not b.s., but gas has effected my business greatly. the cost goes up for 2 reasons, 1.) traveling, and shipping suffers a great deal when a 30.00 gas trip cost 75.00 to complete. so add in how much oil they use in their plastic, and then raise the price of the oil by whatever, and thats a big difference! 2.) they can. it may sound bad, but if they see a chance to get more money....theyre gonna take it. you could seel what you have for cheaper than the comp, but youre gonna miss out on a lotta money....not in business fellas....not in business. anyway....mattel is also releasing two face, harvey dent, bank robbery joker, an the rest hasnt been released. But see the difference was that Hasbro raised the price while Mattel claims they just can't afford to make as many figures. And the whats interesting is that you can walk down a toy aisle and see tons of toys from other companies, the prices might be a little higher but I don't see less Star Wars toys anywhere but Mattel has virtually no presence anymore unless its Barbie related. I get the whole price hike thing but gas prices are down, where I live its 2.08 a gallon. So you can't tell me Mattel can still pull the oil card BS. it might have a small amount of truth to it. like you said, you go down the isle and see SW, indy, trans, gi joe, and ML.... those are all hasbro figs. then you have either dcuc, infinate heroes and DK, but thats about it. ban dai has some ben 10 and power rangers, and jackks has the wwe...but thats it. it could all be BS....but why kill yor own sales? I think Mattel has some issues we do not know about. I think there has been tons of excuses for there goofy activities. But no real reason why there are so few figures on the pegs.

  5. Actually what I said was out of line. I'm a Union Sheet Metal construction worker, and I'm around this kind of humor all day long. Bringing that kind of "humor" to this board is not cool. I edited my post, and if you want to edit your quote for me, that would be cool. If not, I'm sure an MOD will clean it up. I apologize if that offended anyone. #US1# Don't apologize! That was funny as hell. I nearly peed myself. Yea its a little gross but thats what makes it funny. I'd let her pee on me during the thanksgiveing day parade in front of all the people. hahahaha..... Yeah man its cool, don't worry about it. As for being peed on during the Macy's Parade that would actually make me tune in to see it b/c that damn thing hasn't been interesting in years. lol
  6. Ewww... Fortunately, this only happens for a couple of days a month. Why I oughta ....... Hell, I'd eat her period like Cabernet Sauvignon, but I'm a sick mother f*<#er. And this is the creepiest quote ever. Congrats

  8. I still want Two Face but as for a battle damaged Batman I just doubt I want it. Unless the rest of the line is just downright cool Two Face might be the last MM I buy.
  9. I was under the impression that Nolan was dead-set against the idea of Robin in his Bat-universe, so I'm not sure where this would cause a problem. Here's an idea for CW: instead of trying to make a show about Dick Grayson before anything interesting in his life happened, why not a show about Dick Grayson AFTER he and Batman part ways? As in NIGHTWING? At least then you could still have him be relatively young, you don't have to have Batman or Gotham City involved (except the mandatory mention of them from time to time), you can have cameos by other DC characters who aren't likely to show up in the current slate of films, and you can still resort to the "freak-of-the-week" if you have to (the latter not a recommended idea, of course, but hey, with some creativity they could probably squeeze in appearances by the less realistic Bat-villains like Clayface or Killer Croc). Who knows, it might even last a bit longer than "Birds Of Prey" did. As far as I know Nolan is still against the concept of Robin in his Batman world, but I'm sure that Nolan may not want anything Batman related outside his franchise until he's done. WB dropping this may very well mean Nolan is involved in the 3rd one. While I do like the idea of a Nightwing type show on CW, IMO I think that a Nightwing film has some pretty good potential, and it would be easy to link the film to Nolan's Batman, even having his Batman team up with Nightwing now that would be a good idea. Nolan's distaste for the series might have something to do with it but really where could have the show gone? No Batman, no costume, and he is a young acrobat? The show really had no future, and if it follows any sort of Grayson mythos he would have been in a circus and unlike most CW shows he would not be attending high school. What would Dick investigate? Customers messing with elephants, stopping people from getting mauled by the circus lion, keeping the other circus crew from stealing money or something? The show would suck all the way around. I agree though that Nightwing would be a pretty good series but CW can't keep Smallville alive much longer so Idk if they would go for the idea of Nightwing. After Smallville finally dies who knows if CW will be into another superhero show. But a decent idea though.
  10. Yahoo has a story up about how this is just an elaborate hoax and there is no Wonder Woman that is even passed the script phase yet. http://movies.yahoo.com/feature/wonderwomanhoax_blog.html Still a really nice hoax it is, really professional photoshop and website to boot. I applaud these fakers.
  11. Final battle Batman is just stupid. He would have like two small holes in the armor where Two Face shot him? That is just a dumb idea. Mattel has no idea how to cater to fans.
  12. Well my "Old Fart" meter didn't kick in until the 90's. @smilepunch@ In the 70's, all I saw were reruns of the 60's Batman show. lol dude you wrote "I have been a Batman since the 80's" you left out the word "fan" he was laughing b/c none of us could see you putting on the cape and cowl and roaming the rooftops. I think that CW made the right choice b/c a story about a young circus boy who would be like what, 14 years old, solving crimes. The premise is stupid.
  13. When I read the title I thought it was going to be all the mistakes they have made in the last year.
  14. Well I guess I can try the barter system...I wonder how much I will have to barter to get so pissed drunk that my suit rusts shut?
  15. They're up Mattel's @$$es. The CEO of Mattel is rolling around in them naked & laughing at us. Ouch, could you imagine the bruises from the little plastic hands and feet poking your nether regions? Speaking of MM I finally got my Batpod. I love it so damn much!
  16. You are probably overlooking what the nature of the term "exclusive" means. When a retailer solicits a manufacturer for a exclusive product one of the common stipulations is that the product is just that.........exclusive. No-one else can stock that product, except the store that is supposed to sell that product........not even the manufacturer that makes the product can, even if they have their own direct-sell outlets. An agreement is an agreement, and exclusive means to the exclusion of everyone else. That is why mattycollector cannot sell the exclusives, because then they would not be exclusive. i understand what an exclusive is the company i work for builds a truckmount for 1 and only 1 of our customers they get a special color, panel cut, pump size. basically they call the shots i was just saying that they should not agree to give exclusive product to one company when they don't sell it. where i work they have our customers who distribute our machines under contract saying how many units they are expected to buy how much to sell them for and if they can service our machines. but wal-mart only carries wave 1 out here i know other people get more in their areas but the distribution for the store sucks, and kb toys well they just don't carry dcuc in any store that i've been to lately. i just think it would have been smater on mattels part to give "exclusive" distribution of certain figures to matty rather than a store who won't distribute it well enough to make it a fair market for everyone. I agree with you. Exclusives hurt the market in my opinion. I had to drive twenty minutes out of my way to find a Target that I hardly ever go to just to find the Batpod (which I got yesterday, SWEET as hell btw). The worst part is that if you live near a crappy store that will never get in the exclusive or you don't live near that particular store at all, you end up spending tons online to get the figure. And Mattel is really bad with exclusives, there choice of stores and that store's inability to get the figure. I mean should we even bring up the Canadian grocery store MOTU Battle Armor He Man exclusive?
  17. Oh you talking about the development hell project. That movie has been in the works for years and years. That movie isn't getting made anytime soon. In fact the Green Arrow movie will prolly be made before the next Superman movie.
  18. And that would be DUMB (so it's completely possible). He should be given all the time he needs. No kidding. Warner Brothers has other super heros to worry about. Hopefully they focus on making the next Superman movie good, or Green Lantern instead of getting greedy for another Batman movie. We'll see what happens. the only 2 DC movies iv seen for relese is watchmen and flash. No new superman movie news which is a bummer. I have seen marvel is moveing right along what a thor and cpt america movie also spidy 4 and 5 maybe shot st the same time and i have also seen a possable venom movie. And of course wolverine flim. No news really on a aquaman or green lanturn or wonder woman or the justice leauge and im wondering why.Unless some one out there has read or seen something i havent. I did see some stuff on you tue about aquaman not thats about it. Its hard to belive whats on there anyway I dont know why DC seems to be falling behind on the hero movies. I would like to see them step up there game when it comes to that Dont get me wrong im not sayin nolan dont deserve a break but at least sayin yes were going to work onsomething wouldnt be so bad. The Flash? There isn't a Flash movie coming out at all.
  19. I'm really excited about the Superman comics now. The death of Pa Kent forces Superman to deal with one thing he never has to deal with....loss. Pa's death helped make him who he is in the movies and in Smallville. I'm glad to see the comic catching up. The new storyline, "New Krypton", has me looking forward to each new issue, and Gary Frank's art on Action Comics is just crazy. So I guess you would call that a respectful disagreement. As for the rest of your post, sorry, but tales of woe about DCUC distribution is nothing we haven't heard before. I don't even like reading Marvel or DC comics anymore b/c they are so disjointed. And its kind of annoying that the writers have just now decided to kill off Jonathon Kent now after he has been killed off on every Superman medium I can think of (then again he might have lived in Lois and Clark but I do remember something about a heart attack but that was a while ago). The fun just is not there in comics anymore. Its really annoying. And Superman has dealt with loss tons already, I mean hell he has been around for decades the character has loved, lost, fought, and even died. Comic characters now have gone though so much its hard to come up with fresh and exciting ideas.
  20. Snyder has done at least two different endings. Prolly one to appease the studio and then of course the comic accurate one. SPOILER - - I would love to see the giant squid from space ending as opposed to the nuclear ending. In the book the squid is there b/c its a "creature from space" that the world can rally around. No more infighting instead the world has a common thing to unite them (evil invading aliens). If they went with the other ending the nuclear war ending it doesn't make sense. If one nation tried to blow up the other the whole world would be launching off nukes, not united to help one another. This is prolly the only time in history that a giant squid from space is the ending that makes sense - - END SPOILER
  21. I think that he isn't being direct b/c he isn't sure if he wants to do one. He is not even signed up with the studio and like it said he doesn't have a great idea. I would love to see a third movie but hell I would rather have a Spiderman 2 instead of Batman and Robin. I think its a good idea to take a break, don't just do a third one b/c we want one. Do a third one b/c its the right thing to do.
  22. This is going to sound so funny especially as cool as the movie looks to be but its Smashing Pumpkins, Beginning Is the End Is the Beginning. Which is the slowed down version of there The End Is the Beginning Is the End. Which both were released on the Batman and Robin Soundtrack. I hope that isn't an indication of the movie's quality. lol
  23. I just wonder if they updated it for some of the things going on today or if they kept it cold war based.Iv read its been twiked but not really sure what parts they dont give much away in that aspect.Which i understand why..When this series came out I was more into spiderman back then in the 80S so i really didnt know much about it myself.I am like you i only heard things about it as i got older and move to other comics and book.Round about 89 to 90 was when i got into a comic called CRY FOR DAWN by a artist named joseph michael linsner which i have collected ever since. But point is thats when i started to see there were more complex stories and started to hear of watchmen and others.But i got out of comics for a long time except for linsners stuff but after hearing about watchmen for so long and seeing the trailer its one im really going to read. i just wanted to see how passionate people were about this to see if it was more hype than anything. and i see theres a strong base still which shows me theres still something to it.Which i am pleased to see Kept in the 80's, Cold War era. That is what I'm afraid of. I think we will have some crazy people who will say that this is talking about 9-11 or this is what gave the terrorists the idea of doing it or something stupid like that. I believe that we might end up with some of that stupid crap to wade through.
  24. This is just my opinion; Read the book first. I honestly believe you will enjoy the movie more if you already have a reference. I've recently read the book again, and I'm more excited about the movie than before. When it comes to this kind of deep story telling, you need some background. I think if you went to see Watchmen with no background references to refer to, it might "fly over your head" the first time. I think you will appreciate the movie more if you know what's going on. Ok you make a good point i can understand what your sayin and im swayed ill read it first. And thanks to all of you lol your welcome
