  1. Sounds like NECA just confirmed that 2 of the DC vs Darkhorse sets will be among the SDCC exclusives
  2. NECA revealed on Twitter that 2 of their yet to be revealed SDCC exclusives will be DC vs Darkhorse 2-packs
  3. I tend to agree. I like a less goofy update on the big screen but prefer the old school looks when it comes to merchandise and figures
  4. Lol. I don’t have kids of my own but I know this series is pretty popular with a young audience. Working in film and television myself it is a brand often mentioned/compared to when people are looking for that next successful child’s property. That said at least in the case of this most recent film that extremely young audience doesn’t equate as much to box office dollars. It’s similar to how Transformers was in the 80s. It’s a brand that was having mass success in the 80s toy isle and a large young audience on 80s television but you stick it in the theater in ‘87 and it bombs in part because parents don’t want to go see it and the 6 to 12 year olds who love it aren’t yet old enough to drive themselves to the theaters.
  5. Not a Trolls person but I’m curious why this deal wasn’t worked out so there would be LEGO product on the shelf when the movie came and went a few weeks ago
  6. Got my full wave. Slime Pit He-Man is definetely the stand out.
  7. That’s a bummer if it’s not at least somewhat close to scale. I’ll still likely pick these up. 2nd wave would be nice but I feel like that’s unlikely. Still disappointed that after years and years of waiting we never got the 2nd wave of Pulp Fiction figures (nor the first wave of Kill Bill).
  8. So for the Harry Potter collectors out there how are you feeling about these figures compared to some of the other HP figures from the past? Trying to see if I decide to start up an HP shelf if I’d be better off with these or should I go look at some of the past lines released from other companies.
  9. My biggest problem with DCC is that they just do way too much focus on Batman. I get the fact that when it comes to retail product a company need to focus on the top tier and well know characters that are broadly recognizable and appealing. That’s why I get having a heavy Batman and JLA focus at retail is something I get. But DCC is supposed to be about giving that alternative to the mainstream by offering more niche characters. Instead they too just end up being Batman heavy focused (and perhaps even more so than the other companies at retail). I love Batman and I like what DCC puts out but really their job should be to give us those characters collectors want but retail doesn’t.
  10. I love the Shredder but I feel like Splinter is the true highlight of this set. I’m going to continue to pick up any figures they make in this scale but for the 1/4 scale my plane was to just stick with the 4 Turtles. Looking at this Splintet though I feel like if/when they eventually announce a 1/4 scale of him I might find myself needing him too.
  11. Well obviously none of those was today’s reveal but I am wagering at least one of the DC/Darkhorse packs will be announced as an exclusive for this year. My guess is maybe both the Batman/Predator and the Superman/Alien will be SDCC and Batman/Aliens will be NYCC. Do we know that John Connor isn’t coming at retail?
  12. Ah, yup looks like you are right. Interesting. Traditionally DC Collectibles sells their SDCC exclusives via the Graphitte Designs booth (although it’s been a couple of years since DC Collectibles has done an SDCC Exclusive) but yeah looks like this time it’s via the Diamond booth. Weird.
  13. These are cool and I’d love to collect them more but thus far it’s been a mixed bag on distribution for me. I’ve rarely found these figures at retail and then everytime I do find one they end up revealing some vehicle or multipack that forces you to buy the figure you already found yet again just to get the figure and/or vehicle you do need. Also these days I feel like I’m spending so much on MOTU at Super7 that I never get around to fitting these in my MOTU budget.
