Newbie (1/14)



  1. I really want to see better pictures. I'm always up for buying another Iron Man figure.
  2. I don't collect TF's anymore, but have always watched the line and the 3rd party companies that produce things. It looks like a lot of the stuff is really high quality, but the problem I see (and I happened to see an interesting TF based podcast about it) is that all these different companies are producing just about the same figures at the same time. So you have 5 different MP sized Optimus' coming out or 10 different Constructicons sets. When they are all priced as high as they are they will start biting into one anothers fan base. Plus back when some of these companies started producing things , it was characters that Hasbro was never going to probably get around to doing. Now Hasbro's does a figure and three other companies do almost the same one.
  3. I knew what you meant Mako and you are right. Hasbro was riding the fine line between Adult Collector and kids aimed toyline and for the time it was really good. The problem was that They were starting to up their game in terms of some of the things they were doing with Star Wars and Joe collectors were wondering why we didn't have this and that (They were adding wrist and ankle articulation, ball joint head, things like that). But since then Hasbro just hasn't seemed to know what to do with the line. Their first mistake was canceling 4 inch joes for Sigma SIx and then cancelling that for 25th anniversary. Then you had a slightly rushed first movie because of the writers strike and a second movie that was delayed a year and that killed all momentum.
  4. I really don't see these as anything more than the artist drawing things he liked. I have serious doubts that Hasbro would release an Action man figure in Joe scale since they have only done it once, though I really like those two pictures. Also don't think they would have released a Wild Weasel without a vechicle and Hasbro was pretty clear early on that we weren't getting any.
  5. I think all three look pretty good, but I'll wait to see them in person or see better pictures before deciding. The only one that I really want to have is that Dr Strange.
  6. I f this was something that was just "sprung" on fans it would be one thing and if it was by some writer that had no history with the characters i would add another strike. But Paul Dini, how co-crated Harley was the original writer of GCS and most of these plot thread were started in 2009 if not before. Sure I can see them adding more to i for a movie, but truthfully I would be surprised if this movie goes any where and if Ms Fox gets anywhere near it.
  7. DC is really hitting it out of the park and I don't mind the fact that some titles are shipping twice a month. Right Now I'm reading: Batman, Detective, Nightwing, Superman, Action, Flash, Titans, Deathstroke, The whole Young Animals and Hanna Barbera updated line. Enjoying all of it and don't see me dropping any of it. Compare that to Marvel and Image titles that I am only getting in trade form or from the library.
  8. I know there have ben a few exceptions, but I don't believe that Hasbro can use molds from one brand to another. I can't remember the exact reason (maybe that the licensed company, Marvel or LucasFilm or whomever, owns the molds) I just think that with Joe , if they did a 6 inch line, would be so small an offering and such limited mold use (think of the initial 25th anniversary figures waves but in a six inch scale) that people wouldn't stick with the line very long. esspecially is the line was four figures every fours months
  9. I wasn't a huge fan in the act that I would follow all his work, but I appreiated his style quite a bit. IT's was very clean and in a lot of ways reminded me of Ditko's style. Plus he was a professional about his work and what he did. I will miss opening up a book and realizing that he was the artist.
  10. The real problem is that there have been so many individual charcaters created by this point that it's hard to come up with one thats original.
  11. The re-issued figures are nice for army building or for those that didn't get them the first tme around much like Lowlight, Rock Viper and Alpine were. As for the new characters, well they are ok. I want shooter since she was placed as the 13th original Joe and I would like to have her along side the others. The female COBRA Trooper is a nice novelty that some fans have been asking for since the Club did a version of them 10 years ago. The execution of Stiletto wasn't great, but the fact that she was fan voted on and started as a fanfic charcater is severely cool. Tombstone is a take him or leave him character IMO. As for vehicles are a no go this year, which is fine since them seem to be running out of ideas at this point. Do we need another re-issued SHARC or HISS tank?
  12. The first two episodes seemed somewhat anticlimactic to me. "Flashpoint" seemed way to rushed. I can understand why the might have done it, but after the "hype" of the changed timeline, I would have liked to see more I liked the second episode a little more since it dealt with him changing things back and them not being exactly the same. SO were easy to understand and some I guess we will have to wait and see how they play out. Rival was a waste and could have been about any villian and while Alchemy seems to be interesting, if it turns out to be the new CSI guy I will be disappointed.
  13. Saw the two packs at my local TRU this weekend, so I picked up the two with new figures and left the other three since I already had all of those figures. Was hoping for the three packs, just to see how the female Cobra Trooper and Shooter looked. The only bad things is that with these bought I'm back to buying nothing until next year it would seem.
  14. It's shaping up to look pretty good and I will probably go se it opening weekend. Still think people will be confused a little by this as it won't have (for what we have seen) any of the characters from any other SW (I don't count Vader). Hopefully they explain it out at the beginning.
  15. I really like these but there is just no way I could afford them at this time. Are they going to be offered after the KS at online retailers? Wish I could help the KS out.
