  1. Oh is that the line they're going with? Sorry, I know I'm not in business or licensing but it seems crazy that they are allowed to make him in large scale but not in small. My tendency is to think they're holding out, getting as much money as they can out of the video game version before giving people the version they're really going to want. Kind of the same way Mattel played it with the Doomsday. Anyway, nice job on the custom. This is one figure I've wanted for a long time. It's not a line. Oh wait, it was.
  2. Yeah, but look at how Hasbro released those figures. That wave with Gladiator(the mohawk guy)...Cyclops and Cable are one per case, and Gladiator is 2 per case. Cable, who was hugely popular in the 90s boom and is still popular today, and Cyclops, who is probably the second-most recognizable X-Man, are shortpacked instead of Gladiator. Why? You mentioned Ice Cream Maker guy, and I don't know how things went around the country, but I never saw him warming pegs because Hasbro was smart and didn't flood the market with Ice Cream Maker Guys like they did with Yarna or some of the Episode one f
  3. I'm more worried about the RZA wave, since apparently it's just him, Jynx, and Night Viper. And with Wave 3 not out until July, we're probably talking way after the movie is forgotten before wave 4 supposedly hits. And I don't really want to buy a whole case just to get 3 figures(though I wouldn't mind an extra Night Viper).
  4. Are there any plans for a Cobra Commander in his actual Retaliation look as seen in the trailers?
  5. I really hope Burt Ward is in the first wave. Because if for some reason the line is cancelled after one wave, it would be such a shame to have Batman without Robin. And I'm surprised they let Penguin have a cigarette holder.
  6. Yeah, I am totally fine with the old 5-pack version of 90s Rogue. Definitely liking this modern version. It's a shame to see them going all Mattel with their 4-inch movie lines, but I'm intrigued by that line with Red Skull and Leader in it. They look to be Marvel Universe scale with full articulation...I think Red Skull uses parts from the Resolute Cobra Commander. Black Widow and Hulk look really good too, and I think that's the Marvel Now Captain America design in there too? Love Universe Cloak and Dagger, classic Abomination, and especially that Valkyrie and Executioner. Still no w
  7. I visit the site itself every day and if I see a thread title on the sidebar that looks interesting, I click on it.
  8. When I saw the promo art, I just assumed Ultimate Fury would somehow end up trapped in "our" universe after the Spider-Men mini. I kind of wish I had been right.
  9. Sooo....I'm not gonna name them all, but I have all the DC BAFs except Brimstone, all the pre-Terrax Marvel Legends BAFs except the movie Sandman, and all the Star Wars Droid Factory figures. Oh, and the Bat Signal and MASS Device, I guess those count. And Metal Gear Ray, my first ever. I think that's all.
  10. You're overthinking it, he probably just robbed a convenient store or something. Have they set a date for the first "real" trailer for the movie? I'm dying for some for some footage that isn't boats and playgrounds or whatever. Honestly my only problem with the movie so far is that it's not an origin story I really wanted to see again. Still haven't seen the new Spider-Man for the same reason. But I can't blame the film for that.
  11. I'm always amazed that people care about the positive/negative thing. I guess Red Robin is payback for people complaining that the Wave 3 Tim was too small? They have plenty of "younger" bodies that they could use here, so cost isn't even an excuse. If the figure is shorter like Atom is then I could go for him, though. The rest don't interest me at all.
  12. This was what I thought too. It looks more like a military/espionage-themed movie, but with over the top action and ninjas and stuff. I never watched the first one and have no real desire to, but this one looks like it could be fun. Cobra Commander looks like Cobra Commander, and the original Cobra Troopers were guys in blue uniforms, so that look works for me. I'm actually kind of excited to see the toyline now. I think if they tried to fit 20+ Joes in there, it would be unfocused and most of them would just end up as cameos anyways. Everybody who grew up with the toys obviously has f
  13. I really doubt you're going to find some kind of strict OCD distinction between who goes in the sub and who goes to retail. I don't think they thought Poison Ivy would do poorly at retail(that wave with Catwoman also has Harley Quinn, based on a game in which it seemed like Ivy had more screen time), but she's a well-known character who helps anchor the sub. If they make a sub with a bunch of no-name characters, then people wouldn't buy it(look at the GI Joe Subscription...are any of them must-haves?). I've seen the masked Batman Beyond go for $50+ on Ebay, so I don't think he's a bad cho

    wave 20

    Anyways, I just looked at the pictures again and Reverse Flash doesn't have the wing-tips on his boots? It's clearly meant to be the original Professor Zoom, so I really hope they fix this before the final figure comes out. They already have the parts to do it right, there's no excuse to screw that up.

    wave 20

    I'm sure the Masters of the Universe fans will have something to say about that... And who knows what that number is. It takes a lot to make a profit these days. But there have been Matty exclusive DC figures before, and I was always able to get them all without waiting on the site thiry minutes before they went on sale. Maybe that'll change, but I'm just going by past history. I'm not saying people shouldn't buy the sub, I hope they get enough to make it happen. And I don't blame Mattel for not wanting to commit to it unless they know they'll make money from it. That's business.
