  1. I personally hope these are in the 4.5 inch scale of the originals, but if they are a 6 inch line I think some of you naysayers might just come around. I have continued to buy TMNT and Ben 10 figures over the years just to keep tabs on what Playmates is currently doing. Their articulation now is much better than what they did in the past. They recently did 6 inch figures of Billie Eilish (While I’m not a fan of her music or her) the action figure was really well done and had a photo real print on the face. I can’t wait to see what they do for Star Trek. Really looking forward to new electronic ships, especially the USS Cerritos!
  2. I wonder if Hasbro and WizKids do these with Jazwares in 4” scale. I really like Jazwares Fortnite and Halo 4” figures. It seems like it would be a really good fit for the license. Hasbro could continue with 6” D&D and do the animated characters from the 80’s and continue with other great collectors sets like Drizzt. I won’t mind crossover characters between lines. I really hope that this is what they have planned though. I hope they will have an extensive line that goes on for years!
  3. I agree with what you are saying JayC! Definitely a dream come true to have multiple scales on the affordable end. As to Hasbro subbing out GI Joe to Jazzwares for 3 3/4” I can’t wait to see that and I hope the same thing could maybe happen for Dungeons and Dragons! I’d love to see that line in stores again!
  4. Maybe what would work is to just do some cool looking characters from across all the franchise. I know a good part of the appeal in the Star Trek Online game is being able to make up a character from different species, timeframes etc. I guess time will tell if Discovery and Picard era fans can support toy lines going forward but there is quickly building up new areas to draw ideas from. There’s still a whole lot left to come including some directly marketed towards that younger Fortnite audience so maybe in the not to distant future the tables will turn. Do I think we will ever get expansive like Star Wars? I think not, but in saying expansive here I meaning to at least be inclusive of what’s come before where it makes sense.
  5. I would love to see Jazwares get a license for Star Trek. It would be really cool to have an expansive line of 3 3/4” Star Trek figures covering all the different eras and the many alien species. 3 3/4” would allow for cool playsets and Star ships. I also would not mind if they gave us a line of mini-ships.
  6. Sorry for the delay of reply, forcehunter. I live in Lafayette, Louisiana and found the 3 3/4" Hobbit figures only so far. The numbers on the barcodes are Bilbo 85561 16001 and for Gandalf 85561 16002 . I'm going to check back later this weekend to see if there is anything else.When I went they had multiples of all the line Bilbo, Gandalf, Thorin, Legolas and Grinnah the Goblin.
  7. I found some of the 3 3/4" figures at Toys R Us today. I picked up Gandalf and Bilbo. This line is going to be lots of fun. I hope they'll do figures for the LOTR trilogy too!
  8. Saw this link someone posted at thefwoosh.com! Looks like this line is going to be lots of fun! http://www.tolkiendrim.com/tauriel-fimbul-revele/

  10. On William Shatner's Twitter Page a short while back he said he was going to be doing a Heavy Metal/ Hard Rock album with some well known metal bands! I wonder if this is a track from it?
  11. It was only vaguely hinted at that Henry Sr had passed away. I don't remember the exact quote but it went something like..."First Dad, then Marcus." It would be a cheap shot for us to find out that maybe Henry Sr was committed or broke a hip or something, but hey it's George Lucas we are talking about. The man who brought us Greedo-shot-first, Jar Jar Binks and finally Mutt Williams. So cheap shots goes with the territory.
  12. I doubt Hasbro would do a 6" line. Neca would be the better choice for the 6" scale. There's no reason that there couldn'tbe a 4" line too and Hasbro would be the best choice for that line the army building potential alone is my main reason for wishing for a 4" line. I seriously want a Balrog, Fellbeast, Smaug, Cave Troll and Mumakil to add to my Middle Earth Armies, and the larger scales seriously prohibit this. I could in no way justify buying a Balrog replica that is the same size as my three year old daughter to my wife! LOL Not without an impending divorce.
  13. You should check out the forums over at thegd.com. They have an ongoing thread in the forums there about this very subject. I'm hoping for a Hasbro 4" scale line and a Neca 6". Hopefully either Side Show or Hot Toys will bring the 12" line. I'm really hopeful for a 4" scale line for armybuilding, Cavalry, Dragons, Fellbeasts and Cave Trolls. Playsets would be the icing on the cake! You can check out those threads here: http://www.thegd.com/forums.php?cid=6&tid=96&page=41
  14. You need to check out theonering.net and thegd.com ! Both of these sites have been putting all kinds of information out there. You may have to check some of the archived information to see who all has been cast so far. There is definately some interesting casting going on, especially in the company of dwarves! It's rumored that David Tennant of Dr Who and Harry Potter fame is being eyed for a role too.
  15. I just noticed that Jakks Pacific will be doing fully articulated figures for Pirates of the Carribean: On Stranger Tides in 4" and 6" scales. Looks like they will be doing figures for the previous movies as well! I hope "Curse of the Black Pearl" will be featured heavily. You can never have too many Undead Pirates! These are up for preorder ind Diamond Previews monthly catalog and at Big Bad Toy Store. They are listed to be out in Feb 2011! http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/menu.aspx?menu=220&category=7039
