  1. Massive Cudlitz fan, but........HUUUUGH?! I guess in recent times Lex has been portrayed as a more "manly" guy, but It's just so far from the the Ayass Kicker MC is mostly portrayed as. Whatever, I'm glad to see him get a new gig, and maybe this means they'll finally do him in some kickass armor getup that actually looks cool.
  2. While I can feel a bit of appeal for the cartoon classics figures, I just don't see it for these movie figs. They are just plain looking, flat out. But I've been wrong before, actually plenty, but with things like this my gut is usually pretty spot on. I do have high hopes for the movie still. Big Chris Pine fan.
  3. Yes, Page Punchers are by far, the best thing McFarlane is doing right now. Not only do they (finally) showcase the other non-Batman DC heroes and their villains, but they're also done in amore modern styling that does a (slightly) better job or disguising the trademark diapers. I almost bit with the Flash wave, I really did, but I'd been bitten by far too many of McFarlane's products and swore them off late last year. I'm fighting the desire to pre-order these now. They look good. They look real good, but I gotta resist. Maybe I'll just wait and see how they turn out and pick up the winners, I dunno. McFarlane has got me twisted. Now, if they were to carry over the Collect-To-Build process into these Page Punchers and we got to build another character, and not necessarily a larger character, but maybe one of the more obscure ones, I might be forced to submit. Till then, I'll be a little bit more cautious.
  4. Nice Pamper, Kyle. Whelp, it is what it is, McFarlane once again opens the repaint floodgate. Nothing new, no surprise. I was done with McFarlane a month ago. I was also in the same mind set as @glhshelbyfor a minute. Mac had me under the spell with the prices and some well done figures and when he started doing "other" characters, but after a couple of really bad figures I have no faith on the consistency of the line other than in it's Batman related figures.
  5. Yeah....no. These are a bad idea. Aside from Indie these things are flat out boring. Between these things and those godawful Dungeons & Dragons figures, Hasbro is in for a rough year. Another year to be carried by Marvel Legends, G.I. Joe and Transformers. I suppose Power Rangers are no slouch, either. As far as face sculpts these are 1000x better than the D&D figs.
  6. Two Bad is one of the last Masters that I bought as a kid with my own money. He was in either the last series or 2nd to the last series when the toy line started it's decline. It was awesome and it was colorful and it was flat out cool. This does the same thing with modern toy technology. This is a must have for me.
  7. Yep, I believe they were carried by Walmart up until recently. Now they carry a similar property, maybe in house designed. Whatever the case, this seems like a risky one to me. I mean how much articulation can you put into these things and still have them look like the source material? Just wierd.
  8. Love this line in the 80's, it just came around at the wrong time, just as the heyday of the 80's toy and cartoon regulations started cracking down. Glad to see the toys with a modern update. Have to check out how the show turns out.
  9. Production requirement and minimums? From a place who probably puts out 10 solicitations for every one line they actually produce? Since when has that been a concern for them? I'm betting it has a lot more to do with the mighty WWE and Mattel than any of the identified factors. Sad thing is Mattel will get these things designed and put out before Super7 gets out their next set of Ultimates Anything into production.
  10. Generally I like Gunn, but more and more he's got me thinking he's outta his damn mind. He wants to create an MCU like success, but MCU didn't start doing TV shows until after they made all their money with movies, establishing timelines, characters and cannon, and then they had the capital to take a gamble on those shows. Television is only gonna pollute the pond before it even starts to produce. Bad idea and bad move. The more and more Gunn keeps blabbing on Twitter, the less and less faith I have in his plan.
  11. Yikes! Just another case of McFarlane proving the only thing they're good at is Batman. I take back all my questioning and gripes about his character selection, or more so, the lack thereof. Turns out Mac just understands his limitations and is staying in his lane. I suppose better figures like Lobo and Shazam are just happy little mistakes. What's this guy supposed to be doing anyway? Is he doing his best Lamprey impression, cuz he nailed it. Rubbish like this only enforces that I made the right decision to abandon this latest iteration of the DCM line.
  12. Are you sure that isn't a photoshop of the movie poster from Smile? I haven't looked to see who that woman is but she looks almost exactly like girl from that movie. Either way I'm excited to see some new material from the Evil Dead franchise. Thing is they'll probably do the same thing they've done when they "modernize" every other classic property. I'll give it a shot, though.
  13. Yeah, these are just terrible. Aside from Marvel Legends and G.I. Joe, and Power Rangers, Hasbro's been on one hell of a losing streak for a while. D&D has maybe as large a fanbase as Marvel and Joe, probably larger, and I believe, if done right, they could support a successful toy line, but this, this is not what they want to see. Let's start with classic characters first and then move onto cartoons and movies. You gotta draw them in first. I know the classic characters didn't have specific characters assigned but that's the beauty of it. Make a theif, fighter, mage , etc in a few different colors and face sculpts (male and female) and let the customer make the back story. That's where the base lies. You can't use the same cut and paste strategy on every toy line. You gotta play to the fanbase. Personally it's not my thing but i so understand D&D guys and though they may bite a little on these this ain't what they want. Yes, and I know, I know, the movie license is what the toy manufacturers want the most, but if this movie bombs, and my money says it does, the toys will also bomb and they could possibly implode this goldmine before it ever produces a single good product.
  14. Facts. I feel like he lets himself get drawn in too easy with petty arguments and with disagreements with "the help" or the former help, stuff that should be taking place behind closed doors. Just shut up, do what you're gonna do and let your work speak for itself. Then again, if you've ever followed Gunn, and I assume you do, you know that Twitter is probably his biggest weakness, like a lot of celebrities, and he isn't likely to shut that soapbox down anytime soon.
  15. So Dwayne, we're really supposed to swallow the excuse that the 39 year old Cavill had aged out of the role (I agree, and not his fault they didn't utilize him properly) and Gunn and What'sHisName want to go with a younger cast, yet he's fully open to bringing a 50+ year old Rock back to play Black Adam again? This was your shot, you took it, you tried to throw your weight around, you got your movie, it was supposed to ignite the world, it didn't, now you're done. Dude, take the L. It's not like you're the only one who got left out in the cold here. You're not gonna be able to muscle your way back in and call your own shots if they expect Gunn to get this train moving like they want him to.
