  1. So when do the Thundercats figures come out anyway? I can't find a date from the Super7 website or their Facebook page. With the figures just now going up for preorder, I'd imagine we have a long wait, but that "available now" tag in the display makes it seem like they're imminent.
  2. Netflix original animation is where it's at. Just in the few short years they've been making original animated content, they've added some real powerhouse anime and cartoons. A few of their original anime easily make my top 20 favorites list. I'm not sure about Kevin to be honest. He'll admit himself that he's not that great of a director, but I guess it isn't really clear how he's involved anyway. Maybe he's just producing. He's a passionate guy though, maybe he is the right choice to helm something like this. I'll watch it regardless, I'm pretty excited to see how it is!
  3. I think in general I like this line. The added articulation is a plus, I think the size and price are good too. With how many characters are in MOTU, if you collect everything at that Classics 7" scale, you're gonna end up with a huge amount of space taken up by MOTU, so this scale makes it a little easier to justify getting more than just a few characters. I especially like that we can get steeds and vehicles at this scale for the same reasons. Less real estate and lower prices. If these actually show up at retail in decent amounts, that'll be the real deal maker. I've only seen Classics at comic shops or cons, but being able to walk into a Walmart at buy MOTU figures will really add to my enjoyment of the line overall. If they rerelease these characters with the animation aesthetic, then I'd be all in, but as is I'll still pick some up if I can find them.
  4. What are people even saying they'd want from the Classics line at this point? Repaints or rereleased figures? What's left to still make?
  5. To be honest, I couldn't imagine the possibility of another TMNT line starting that would catch my interest in the slightest, but basing these designs on the vintage toys is a really cool take and I'm loving it. I'm going to have to redirect some toy budget to make sure I can collect both the Thundercats and the TMNT stuff from Super7. Those TMNT touch a nostalgia nerve for me that's really unexpected and that I never really felt about the Neca stuff. I could never find the Neca at retail anyway so I've never even seen those figures in person, but I'm all in with this line of figures. It's very good to get a verbal confirmation of what Brian had already said about committing to finishing the main Thundercats team. It'll be really neat if this line does well and they go as deep as they did with MOTU. It was interesting to hear that they already have a sculpted Mumm-ra in the 5.5 scale. The short lived line that Funko did I had a lot of fun with, so if Super7 made Thundercats in 5.5 I'd be interested in those as well. The Conan figures really look amazing. The sculpting work is fantastic. I probably won't be able to add another line to collect, but maybe I'll try and get a Conan figure at least. Really cool showing from Super7 here. Lots of interesting stuff and fun reveals, makes me wish I was at PowerCon so I could see them in person.
  6. I like this figure and I don't usually like these egg attack figures. This looks like a joker toy a kid would have in the animated universe, or a homemade toy Joker or Harley would leave at a crime scene as a calling card. I dig it, if I can find some space in the budget to squeeze him in, I'll try and pick him up.
  7. I wish they sharpened up their sculpts a bit. Everything looks a little soft. This line is most exciting when we get the characters we haven't got from the Figuarts line yet. SSJ4 Vegeta fits that bill, but I think SSJ4 figures will be coming from Figuarts soon enough. It would be cool to see something a bit more niche that we know Figuarts won't be getting for a long time, but I get why they'd want to make more SSJ4 figures here.
  8. It seems like seamless bodies are just the inevitable way of the future for 1/6 and 1/12. I'm not a fan of them though, I hate seeing the rubber bend and distort the joint the closer you get to a 90 degree angle. The rest of the figures here look good though. I like the soft goods and accessories. The denim especially looks very convincing at this scale.
  9. I haven't seen the movie, but it looks like he's got a barrel chest and little toothpick arms! haha! This is definitely cooler than the other release, but I think the 1000 Toys version has a better aesthetic in my opinion. Plus, I heard the movie is bad so I'm not about to spend this much cash on a figure of a character from a movie I probably won't care for. Mezco did a good job though, I guess if the movie was a hit, this would be selling like crazy, but now. . .
  10. One of the greatest blockbuster movies of all time in my opinion! Still holds up as an entertaining and funny movie. The likeness in the unmasked head sculpt here is very good. Hopefully the finished product matches these shots. What's really impressive is how they duplicated all the little details of his outfit. Really tempting figure, it would be cool if they made an Elena figure with the same quality.
  11. The mouth on the suit in the cartoon looks fine and isn't something you really think about, but when you see it in a realistic look like this statue, you realize how odd of a thing that is. I'd like someone to make a figure of the new design in the comics for BB. Bigger red bat on the chest and large red eyes. It's a striking look and would make for a really cool looking figure.
  12. I was hoping they'd retool a few things on these figures as an incentive to buy them again. Maybe they did and it's very subtle, but just by these pictures it looks like the same we've had before with a few new accessories. I still preordered the wave. I'm hoping we'll get the full team so gotta support it now. It'd be cool if they released a more cartoon-style Lion-O head sculpt to go with this body. The detailed hair is fine, but it looks more like a realistically skewed styling of Lion-O. The head sculpt for the Funko Savage Lion-O that recently released is beautiful and for what it is, I think does a better job than the Mattel sculpt at giving Lion-O's hair that ever flowing feel to it. If they release a head sculpt that has that smoother, more cartoon styled look to it, I'll buy this figure twice just to get it. The Mezco Lion-O also has a great sculpt to it. BBTS has these up for a dollar less than Super7 and with their flat rate shipping, you might as well preorder there. I guess these toy companies have conditioned me to get used to the price hikes, because these prices don't surprise me. If this brand is as niche as people on here keep suggesting then that'll mean lower production numbers which usually means higher production costs. Super7 isn't the giant Mattel is and Thundercats isn't MOTU either, apparently. Then if you account for the extra accessories, this price seems to be expected I'd say.
  13. I'm not sure there's a sitcom type show that I like so much and I'd also like to see in Lego form. Did Lego already do The Office?
  14. I think the likeness isn't quite right. He looks a little young. Maybe it's the hair, it seems a little poofy compared to how it's actually supposed to be. That horse is dope, I've got a lot of fantasy themed Figma characters now and this could be a nice match for them. It looks like there are two stands included, but that's probably just for the promo shots. I wonder if it's because the horse is a little iffy to stand on it's own.
