  1. Oh man if they ever make the castle of lions I have zero clue where I will put it. Lol
  2. I doubt I’ll have any luck finding them in the store so hopefully NECA does the preorders for these next year (as well as the Casey set and April set).
  3. I second this. Since I have all the Mattel figures I skipped wave 1 with the exception of mummy Mumm-Ra which I decided to get for the clothed goods (but it’s sitting in my pile of loot right now). I’d be very interested to hear about how the Super7 ones are comparing.
  4. I think this new wave is a great mix of characters. Heading over to bbts to place my preorder just as soon as it gets posted
  5. I hope this doesn’t prove to be a nightmare. I’m mostly a loose collector (I open about 90% of my stuff) but given that I do love the card art and this line doesn’t really offer much new outside of the total packaging presentation this is a definite MOC line for me.
  6. I’ll get more excited once I know the distribution will actually be such that I can get the full retail line.
  7. Very true. Back at that time I would often say Hasbro was great at 3-3/4” figures (GI Joe, Marvel Universe) but pretty meh at 6” but Mattel was doing great at 6” (MOTU Classics, DCUC) but pretty meh at 3-3/4”
  8. I’m excited for these. Might have to go ahead and pull the trigger on shipping my pile of loot shortly after these arrive.
  9. $40 is overpriced, but I’m a big fan of the film and Roddy was a personal friend (can’t believe it’s been 5 years) to where I think I’m going to end up getting this.
  10. I’ve been excited and awaiting this since I first saw it teased at NYTF.
  11. While I know it’s unlikely my real hope for this line is to get some figures we never got to in our other 3-3/4” modern era lineups instead of just more figures that long time 3-3/4” Joe collectors already have. Between 2007 and 2018 we received an amazing collection of 3-3/4” Joes but we still never got to characters like Golobulus, Overlord, Headman, Backblast, Super Trooper, General Flagg, Col Courage, Sgt. Savage, Sparks, remaining members of the Plague, etc etc. I realize that with Hasbro’s focus on A-list characters all of this is unlikely but that’s what I’m hoping for.
  12. So I ended up ordering the new diatoms set. Shipping on it cost $20 and given the fact that I know how big/heavy this is from buying the SDCC version this shipping price seems reasonable. That said, I was on the fence with the accessory set so decided to see how much extra it would cost with combined shipping. Adding the accessory set bumped the shipping price up $15 taking it from $20 up to $35. That’s outrageous and definitely closed the door on me adding the accessory set to my order. At $50 that was already looking like way too much for some baby turtles and items I’d likely never use but going up to $65 (plus tax) and I had to pass on adding that set.
  13. Yup picked up the SDCC Mattel one at the booth the year it came out and the Super7 one is currently sitting in my Pile of Loot at bbts. Also have the SDCC Playmates Lions, the Giant Mattycollector one, the older Matchbox and Panosh stuff including the Castle of Lions Playset. So it would be a pretty sizable shelf to relocate. That said it would make sense to move it as it’s the only non Turtles shelf in that specific display case.
