  1. I understand wanting to make the line more high-end. These are much more robust, deluxe items than they were 5 years ago, so you'd expect higher prices. But now it's starting to look like padding. All the accessories, the stand it comes with, light up features - all of this is fluff. It's stuff I don't need and it is driving the price up, and it is an easy way to not spend a lot more on tooling or paint apps but be able to increase your price because of "deluxe features". If I want something bad enough I'll get it but are these really worth it now? Are people otherwise interested just not gonna buy a $200 toy?? I can understand that. Hell, people were saying the MP line was overpriced 5 years ago.
  2. OK, so the new Hot Rod has the same target master as the Hasbro release did 6 years ago. That's too bad. I hear the new one made for Artfire is wayyy better. Oh well. That's about ok. it looks like only 3 new molds this year not counting Artfire's Targetmaster, Nightstick. That's right in line with what we've been doing, only I was hoping that last years push up to 4 new molds might hold over for this year too. I guess not. 2011 MP-10 Convoy 2012 MP-12 Lambor MP-13 Soundwave (delayed until 2013) 2013 MP-15 Rumble and Jaguar MP-17 Prowl 2014 MP-20 Wheeljack MP-21 Bumble MP-22 Ultra Magnus 2015 MP-24 Star Saber MP-25 Tracks MP-27 Ironhide (delayed until 2016) 2016 MP-28 Hot Rodimus MP-29 Laserwave MP-32 Optimus Primal MP-33 Inferno 2017 MP-34 Cheetus MP-36 Megatron MP-39 Sunstreaker (delayed until 2017)
  3. I don't know what's going on in that trailer, but comic Cloak and Dagger were a pair of homeless kids keeping each other alive on the streets. These just look like moody schoolchildren. I hope they don't take all the bite out of them and their backstory.
  4. Also, is it just me or is anyone else sometimes a bit weirded out that there have been lots of toys of a serial child molester on the shelves? Yes, you, Freddie Kruger from Nightmare on Elm Street. I know your backstory.
  5. I dunno, I just saw that the zombie taxi driver from Ghostbusters is getting a figure, and the version of Death from Bill and Teb's Bogus Journey is getting a figure, so, whatever, everybody's getting one, as long as you stir the nostalgia for some Gen X-er, you'll get a figure. So what's with you anyway, Gen X? Being nostalgic is one thing, but.. geez. Move on already! I appreciate how easy it is these days to walk into Walmart and buy a Star Wars t-shirt or an AC/DC shirt, but c'mon. Movies have been made since the 80s. Music has been made since the 90s. Move on! (I'm a Gen X and it boggles me. How many Howdy Doody toys did you see on the shelves when you were a kid. That's right - none. His time had come and gone and everyone had moved on.) OK, crazy old man rant over. Boy I can't wait to get ahold of those Figuarts Street Fighter toys.
  6. As an ex-avid hunter, I'm not out in the field as much these days, but when I find myself at Wallys or Targs, I still find a way to peel off and go check what's on the pegs. Pegwarners in Vegas that I've noticed are ML Cottonmouth from the Captain America Civil War wave from quite some time ago ML Red Guardian from the other Captain america Civil War wave from even longer ago ago ML Machine Man from the Avengers 2015 wave. Yeah, he's still around. ML Mordo from the Dr Strange movie wave. Astral Dr Strange makes an appearance too. and ML Nico from that same Dr. Strange wave is starting to pile up, which is a really too bad because it's a fantastic figure, a real gem in the line, but nobody knows who she is. Shame.
  7. Looks like all the silver is gone and made white. Face and gun included. A lot of the black details on car mode are gone. Not a major change. Red Alert was at least legitimately different.
  8. Hot diggity! That looks pretty good.
  9. Nice! Love that Ready to rumble pic.
  10. I don't think we get to say things like MP are from the cartoon considering how many homages to Diaclone just like those that Takara has made for the MP line. Or the comicbook version of Grimlock. Or Wheeljack.
  11. the SH Figuarts Rogue One figures are starting to come out, and it's real hard not to pick them up, since they are so nice and such higher quality than the Black series figures, like the Hovertank Driver, that thing looks rad, but I just gotta tell myself they cost too damn much, they cost too damn much.....
  12. I'd love to see Hot Rod, MP-28 in black. What does that reference? What character is that?? Who cares!! That car looks rad in black. MP-9 got a black repaint for some reason and it looks boss. I want one for Hot Rod.
  13. I just do 6-inch figs, and of the Rogue One figures out, I really really liked the TRU Hovertank Pilot, and the K-2SO. Those are just cool cool figures and I'd be happy to have them even if I never saw the movie.
  14. Still think thee's a market for a nice new Psylocke on the Moonstone body. Still don't think they've made a decent Emma Frost. We need a new Domino too. Then we've never seen Megan, Multiple Man, Rahne or Sunspot or most of the New Mutants still need to be done, Strong Guy and maybe a Lila Cheney to go with him, and for christ's sake, somebody make a decent Storm, classic Bryne/Cockrum please.
  15. Nice! Good use of parts, and the manhole and lightning effects are really cool.
