    I think this line is an affordable line for kids that also is meant to hit the nostalgia spot for those who collected the original figures. For those wanting MOTUC this line isn't for them and I agree I am looking more foraward to seeing the Masterverse stuff.

    I totally agree, it's sheer nostalgia, I'm still skeptical to the idea that the franchise is going to have a demand among children again, I just dont see this happening, are mostly adults who are talking about this line, old fans people getting it for themselves. I really hope that more details about the Netflix and Motuverse series will be officially revealed...or leaked by somebody. Dunno, since I couldn't collect MOTUC as I would have liked, I hope Motuverse is at least fun to collect, the action figure collecting is becoming into a frustrating hobby to me.

  2. Interesting. Although in my opinion there is still a lot to work on in terms of distribution. I still think that the sale of these figures should be of a general nature or at least restricted only to etailers, something curious that happened to me in these last weeks before the holidays is that I discovered that a chain of stores carried them to my country, but the price seemed hilarious to me, almost 90 bucks per 2 pack.

    Can't say I disagree with you there... especially regarding distribution. Locally we went from totally empty pegs (collector's gobbling them up before they could even get put out) to them falling off the pegs. Would have helped to smooth the curve with more initially and less later on. 

    And believe me, even though the exclusivity period with Walmart has ended and other retailers can sell them, that is not going to change things much, the distribution will still leave a lot to be desired, the best option will still be to get them online and well it is now when we will see the test of fire of the franchise, if this time around it can be kept afloat at the retail.

  4. Those ships don't look so Star Wars 'ish to me and those nihil guys look more like taken from some Steampunk or Post apocalyptic fan art, but I certainly find it an interesting project even though I never noticed any event prior to Episode I in the previous canon and at the moment other projects place the action more in the imperial or post-imperial period.

  5. Being honest under other circumstances this would have caused me a lot of joy, but all I have is a mixture of feelings, the line did not turn out what I expected, the distribution here sucks, online are also almost non-existent and the quality was not even the minimum of my expectations. I wouldn't know whether to give them another chance or just wait for Motuverse and pray for it to be better.

    What no one seems to be talking about is how damn difficult it is to find this line outside of the US. Hasbro really need to sort out the way they distribute their wares. Surely it can’t be that difficult to allow other territories to use the Hasbro Pulse website?

    As someone who lives outside the USA, I understand your feeling, I have not seen more than a few figures from the vintage line in stores of my city and nobody seems to want them, the online availability sucks too, it's just not worth talking about it, the recurring comment seems to be always "I can't find them" and yes I also think that Pulse would be a good distribution tool, but hasbro does not seem to think the same.

    Only 6 figures out of 17+ are Target exclusives, so no this isn't even remotely true.

    In fact there are 23 figures counting the color variants of Commander Cobra, Scarlett and Roadblock (plus 2 figures that were only teased but of which we don't know the details of their release), and yes, there are 6 Target exclusives (so far), but remember that there are three Pulse exclusives, one Amazon exclusive and one fan channel exclusive, a total of 11 but ok, let's just focus on the target ones.

    If you agree with the current situation of the line for me that's great, I don't care, however I reiterate what I PERSONALLY said before: a pity they brought the line back just to handle it this way and I'm certainly not the only one who share that opinion.
