  1. You it's so funny when people are writing about Booker T, I'm thinking about the musician. LoL. But yeah he looks like wrestler. What a shame the new cartoon show has such poor writers that they have to resort to race swapping instead of creating new characters that are appealing. Figure looks like all the others so far...tiny head on a big body. 7" scale just seems like too much plastic. Are kids actually buying these?
  2. I really like the Villains from these sets. I think Shredder is in the right scale for the other villains. The problem is that those turtles look huge next to them. If I can find these at market I will pick them up for sure, but I'll probably have to find a different set of turtles to display.
  3. $55 per figure means I'll stay away from the 7" line. Honestly, I expect Hasbro to do similar deco on their GI Joe Classified lines at some point anyway. It also seems like these 7" Joes look kinda plain. I understand its the cartoon translation but they don't seem very exciting. I agree that the card art for the Reaction figures looks really good, but I'm not spending $18 for packaging. I think Super7 would have had a huge hit if they did the old O Ring style Joes. I think older collectors would snap them up in a second! and newer collectors would've probably bought it anyway. Super7 already explained that added articulation doesn't add that much cost to making figures because the use of the plastic is basically the same with or without. So why not make these O Ring Joes??? Black Major makes a killing on his Factory Made customs. Many of the 82-85 joes are in major need of an update anyway, especially because they don't have ball joint heads... and then all the figures that were never made for the original line (or made poorly by Hasbro in the 2000's). So many options! What a missed opportunity!! I would've bought them all.
  4. Its a shame the heads are all too small on these figures. I might have bought them for my classics collection. The body sculpts look great but those heads are waaaay too tiny.
  5. Sculpts look like the actors, but as a huge GI joe fan, I just don't see myself getting excited for the movie or toys. For comic readers, Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow is THE central story of the original series. They're just too far away from the source material and the costume designs aren't that interesting. The plus side is I get to save $$$
  6. I'll be so surprised if we see Night Creepers and Scarlet actually looking almost comic accurate on screen. Really dislike the Snake Eyes and storm shadow costumes. Why does everyone need body armor? How can they even move in that, they're frickin' ninjas!
  7. $550 is just too much for this. I love thundercats and bought the Savage World Thundercats figures awhile back. I have the Classics Greyskull and Super7 Snake Mountain playset, as well as the Jabba Sailbarge. I feel like I got so much more out of those playsets, then this vehicle. I'm sure its in scale for the 6" Thundercats figures, but for my purpose I was looking to upgrade my vintage Thundertank so I could fit my Savage Thundercats figures in it. I think this vehicle would be too big for my use. Besides that, the rubber treads are a big mistake for Super7. I think they had the target price of $500 first and worked backwards to create the vehicle and features to fit that budget, so they included anything they could to come in budget and justify it for $500. But honestly, I would buy this at the $250-300 range. It just seems like Super7 was not interested in considering that price range.
  8. Curious if the cancellation had anything to do with the first episode script? They describe Flor as a Latina "Dreamer," was there some kinda political consideration here?
  9. Well I for one am awaiting to see the Snyder Cut of Justice League. I have no idea what to expect but i'm wishfully hoping it brings a sense of continuity to the DC films. It is a terrible shame that Warner Bros. seems unable to get actors to commit to cameos in movies, or commitments to multiple films. It certainly should have been done in the Shazam movie with Henry Cavil. I also don't understand Warner Brothers plans for multiple continuity films like the Batman and the recent Joker film. Its confusing and annoying. This has been DC's major fault since the Silver Age in Comics and I can't believe they haven't learned anything from 50 years of Marvel and even the mcu movies. I think we all just want a series of good DC comic book movies.
  10. I have to say that If I was Super7 and heard fans saying that they were willing to pay $300-400, and I had been planning to list it for less. I would definately scrap my pricing and raise it to whatever i felt comfortable that people were saying they would pay. LOL! High price? Self fulfilling prophesy.
  11. Wait! No shinguards, elbow pads, wrist guantlets????? Where are all of Shipwreck and Sgt Slaughter's unnecissary armor?
  12. I think it looks like an interpretation of Jim Lee's artwork which is what it's supposed to be. I don't think they were trying for realism. It would be cool to see a realistic superhero sculpture. All the proportions and anatomy are greatly exaggerated bc that's what they want because that's what comic book art is. The statue is stiff and lifeless. Comic designers are graphic designers and they don't see things in the round like classical artists so you can't judge it by these standards.
  13. This whole idea of Exclusives going to pre-order is absolutely great! I hope Hasbro continues it. It gives everyone a chance to get the figure they want without being at SDCC (which most of us can't go to) and its still limited production to the time window. It also cuts down on scalpers and the insane prices on Ebay, which are ridiculous for some of this stuff. I was signed on at 12 and it did take me some time but finally got the Hellfire set, which I was really looking forward to. I was so worried I would be shut out of the set that I was already thinking about Customizing ideas. Now I'll be happy to get the figures in march and order some Hellfire goons as well. (which I wouldn't have ordered if I didn't get the set) However, I definitely would NOT pay $50 service for the privilege to buy figures. If that's what it takes for people to get their figures early, that's fine, I don't mind the wait.
  14. I thought I would chime in on the percentage debate here and let you guys know that 10% is called decimation. Its extremely devastating when it was practiced in warfare and you can also apply it to physical businesses. While it's not a kill blow to the business it is significant enough to allow for financial restructuring. I think most people's relationship to percentages are in terms of discounts, and a 10% discount isn't much of a deal but when applied to trimming a business this is a meaningful first step.
