  1. in what way? I thought it actually streamlined and explained it. let me lay it out simply: 1: If they don't make what I want, I will not give them any money, so, if the line tanks, I had no investment in it whatsoever, and therefore, the burden is off of me, and I am free to gloat about how the fans killed the line. 2: If they DO make what I want, I'll buy it and be happy. either way, I'll be happy, either in my sadistic glee over the fans having nobody to blame but themselves, for the line collapsing this time, or I'll get what I want. the only way I lose is if the line is a huge success, and I still don't get what I want, but y'know what?, I STILL won't be disappointed, because eventually they're gonna run out of characters, or ideas, and then they're gonna revert back to bad habits. and I'm not really counting on that. This IS MOTU we're talking about, it's pretty much doomed to fail. as for taking a toyline too seriously, believe me, it's all one huge joke to me. WOW. thats all i can think off. WOW. I dont get how someone can "gloat" over a product that someone else likes failing. That would be like me saying "thank god the NECA 2pack stactions got cancelled"...or "man I am glad that stupid 200x line is done. I told everyone it would fail". So childish, ridiculous and frankly, insane. I guess you could be trying to act "cool" or like a rebal or an individual....but come on now. You have to be one of the most damaged people I have ever run across on these forums, or any for that matter. There has to be some major personal issues in your life for you to actually think what you are saying is funny even. You may want to seek profesional help for your anger and displacment issues my friend. On to how I feel about this line.... I loved the original figures. I even liked NA. I dug 200x and the look of the stactions. Fact is, I plain love MOTU. Ill support anything that is MOTU (unless there is some HUGE change in the characcters themselves). But to me, this MOTUC line is the perfect incarnation of the proprty. Sure, it will loose the hyper detail the 200x line had. But it will also loose that manga/anime feel. The OVER skulpting. It will loose the creative control enforced on the 4H by Mattel. The figures will actually be able to stand up with normal posture. Does skeletor have the same horror look from 200x? NO. But does that make him less menacing? No. Now, he looks more like a skull striped of flesh, then an alien pin head. Dont get me wrong, I have a HUGE collection of the 200x line. But it was flawed. Had it been a new seperate line, not MOTU, then it may have been the best toy line ever (except for the silly repaints like disco skeletor). However it was supposed to be a new updated MOTU. ANd to me, the perfect update from the 80's stuff is this new line. Sure they are resusing parts. Sure I would rather have indivudual molds for each character. But I am also not footing the bill, expecially during one of the worst financail times since the Great Depression. Toys are a luxury anymore. Not a staple. They will be things that people cut out when times get hard. So for a company to try and min. its costs, I am okay with that. The 4H do a great job of little tweaks to make the characters look distinct in their own way. But these are the figures I have always dreamed of. For those that are only fans of 200x, then you have your ideal figures. Let the rest of us enjoy ours, and dont ruin it for us. If you dont like them, fine, but why try and spoil it for the rest of us? Why take pleasure in that? Just dont support it. But, if you are a true MOTU fan, then you support it no matter what. He-man is family to me. And no matter what family looks like, I still lend it 20 bucks. LOL I still support it. Even if I dont like what it is doing sometimes. Of course, this time I love what it is doing. So that makes it easier. LOL
  2. Ya know you are comletly wrong about what these new figures are, right> They are not re-releases...they are completely new skulpts that are about an inch bigger, these actually have articulation, some of the best articulation in all of the toy world, have greater detail and are based on the 8back card art, not the figures. Its funny that I read posts on here and other sites that dont even have the right info, and you are mad about it.lol Look at the new issue of toyfair, they have comaprision picks of the figures. The new ones are a lot better looking then the re-issued "commemrative" line. I am not sure where you got the idea that they were just redoing the reissues, but you are not correct. Might want to try and get the correct information before you go around damning a line and getting upset about something that is just not true.
