  1. Just checked 2 Targets today. Between the 2 there were 10 of these Shredder/Krang 2 packs, 0 Bebop and Rocksteady. Very frustrating. But if you need Shredder and Krang and you’re in the Los Angeles area please go buy them all as I’m in the desperate hope that if these get cleared out maybe there is a distant hope of another restock
  2. And if the Reeve figure goes well I’d even be in for picking up a Lex, Zod, Ursa, and Non.
  3. So to the best of our knowledge these aren’t GameStop Exclusive or anything like that? Haven’t been collecting the MK figures up to this point so haven’t really been tracking where they get sold
  4. I was thinking the same thing with Poison Ivy being my favorite from the show so much so I was considering putting her in my maybe list. But similarly I’m not a huge statue collector and ironically I already have a Poison Ivy statue I received for Christmas many years ago (plus a bust of hers I got for a steel) thus in a way having multiple statues of a character no where near the top of my list of favorite characters seems kind of odd to me considering how few statues I have.
  5. Agree 100% and seeing a mix of Milestone and/or Wildstorm make it into their product offerings would be incredible. This is what DC Direct should be doing, giving us the characters and eras and representations that mass retail wouldn’t touch.
  6. It’s already been effecting my industry (the film industry). Films that needed successful opening weekend numbers in China have had their premier dates postponed which often kills their momentum. It sounds like it’s already had an impact on the toy industry with shipping delays and once those happen they tend to spiral as things then get more and more backed up. It’s not as if these factories, shipping boats and loading docks where people were already being over worked and running around the clock can just magically catch up.
  7. I don’t need it for my collection but I think the Slambulance is a great reveal and if I were a kid today I’d be all over it. I presume the white shirt Christian is the standard and the black shirt is the chase??? Is there a release date for the Legends line hitting Target?
  8. How much is Spike going for. I’m pleased to see they’re doing at least 3 Cowboy Bebop figures and have my fingers crossed that they actually complete the team
  9. Of everything revealed at Mattel the two things I’m most excited about is that we are finally getting a Greg the Hammer Valentine and loving the Bobby the Brain in the weasel suit. That first appearance Undertaker would be 3rd on my list for Mattel reveals.
  10. On the standard figure the costume looks great and really pops but the face looks way way off.
  11. I think these will be a pass for me (same with the HBK and Brock wave). I’ll maybe reconsider them if they go on sale but at $30 I can live without them.
  12. It’s another year where I feel like Mattel really underwhelmed for me at ToyFair. Their focus is obviously kids (which is fine) but for the collectors things have just really died off since the Mattycollector days and now even more so without DC. At this moment the only thing Mattel is doing that I’m interested in is WWE which is a line I skip most of cause I’m only interested in the legends and throwback figures and eventually MOTU which is still at least a half a year away and I really only have mixed excitement about. It’s just so odd as it wasn’t that long ago that Mattel was one of the highlights and things I’d be looking the most forward to at these shows. I’m now nostalgic for the days where I’d attend the Mattypoloza panels every year at SDCC and Power-Con and then after getting home from the conventions still go to watch the walkthrough videos with PixelDan even though I was just there.
  13. My top want from what they are showing continues to be the 5Points Fletcher Superman figures (we’ve seen them before but until they arrive I think they will keep topping my list). Whenever they start releasing this line I’ll probably get a bunch of the 5Point stuff but the Superman ones are at the very top of the list. In terms of One:12 I continue to want that Lockjaw and be tempted by the Popeye, and Ghost Rider. I’m also digging the 89 Batman.
  14. Not a ton new here since we’ve seen a lot of this at SDCC or other events. My sister collects the LDD line and she’s kind of disappointed with the Scooby Doo ones as they don’t really fit the darker/creepier tone of the rest of the line. I also noted that it seems like they’ve completely broken off from doing original dolls and now all the LDDs are licensed characters.
