  1. 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!
  2. $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
  3. 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?
  4. 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
  5. 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.
  6. Wait! No shinguards, elbow pads, wrist guantlets????? Where are all of Shipwreck and Sgt Slaughter's unnecissary armor?
  7. 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.
  8. 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
  9. 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.
  10. I think i'm probably the only person offended at this McFarlane Batman. Just on the basis that the core of Batman is that he's not a killer! So not only would he not use guns but also knives, swords, stabbing spikes on his gloves...he's not a ninja! he's also not Deadpool. I don't think McFarlane understands how deadly edged weapons can be. It's true batman is just a man, but his "power" is always that he's a master detective, scientist, strategist, as well as someone who is learned in many forms of combat. I just don't see what the thought is behind a "Spawnized" Batman especially w
  11. If these are O-Ring 3 3/4 figures, i'm not sure what "New" figures they can come up with except for Pythona and Dr. Venom? They made every other figure I can recall from the comics or cartoon in "O-Ring" style. They did the entire Oktober Guard, Big Lob, Kwinn. They even did a Vietnam Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow. Crimson Twins in their Business suits. Unmasked figures, Hologram figures, General Flagg. I believe the 25th anniversary style took it one step further, I think they've re-done the entire line and cartoon series, as well as foreign variants and new figures. (But I don't col
  12. Wow. This is UUUUGGGGGLLLYYY! I can't believe we went from DC Classics to something so bizarrely sculpted. What is up with that mid torso cut?? It's so chunky and distracting. Paint Apps? are there any past the color of the plastic? And of course the size is way out of wack. Now the NECA figure looks fantastic, Guess they should be doing the license...but wow this figure sucks. Mattel put out some pretty descent figures but not so much at the end. Just shocked how ugly these McFarlane figures are.
  13. Well honestly, I don't think it has anything to do with people in general not wanting to go to theaters because of pricing and snacks. Clearly people are seeing movies still despite this. Why did this movie fail? 1) Nobody was really in their costumes (it didn't look like a superhero movie) 2) didn't follow any real relation to the comics (of which that's a main market for getting fan butts in the seats) 3) mainly a female cast that seems to be pitched only to a female market (be smart and cast a wider appeal; both Captain Marvel and Wonder Woman had men in the supporting c
  14. I really liked the Super7 retro line. They were making the figures in the exact style of the originals except for fixing the rubberband problem. Eldor and He-Ro were a dream come true and then they began to expand to She-Ra and Shadow Weaver. That was fantastic because you could continue to add to your vintage collection, and there are soooo many characters from TV, Movies and Comics that never made it in the Vintage toyline. The Origins line is doing a weird combination of Vintage and Classics and it really isn't offering much, except maybe a shot at getting new vehicles or a playset.
