  1. Cool figure and tempting but I think I’m going to stick with Mattel Elites as my main Wrestling figure focus
  2. So is it that “Action Force” was never copy-written and thus just open for use or is it that Valaverse is paying for the license?
  3. Is this going to be a Con Exclusive variant or something?
  4. Any insight as to why the price on this one is almost half the price of the previous releases in the line? This is a line where I personally didn’t need all 4 but was hoping to pick up Leo (my favorite) some day but at $160 for Leo I decided to wait to try to grab him at a deal and ended never getting around to getting him at a price I was more comfortable with. This new price point is much better and more in line with what I was hoping to eventually pay for Leo.
  5. Cool set, tempting, but probably a pass for me personally. Just out of budget necessity I’m a bit more choosy when it comes to which of the NECA soft goods figures and not sure I want to open the floodgates on potentially trying to collect all the Goonies in this form. I definitely think they are cool though and might reconsider if they ever hit a steep discount/ clearance
  6. Well I’m glad the Gremlins figure didn’t get funded as hopefully now they’ll just find a way to release it the normal way without people being stuck paying an extra $25 for stuff they don’t want. Too bad about Splinter though
  7. So the one Target I’ve seen stocked with these has had about 5 sets each of both the Turtle packs and the foot clan pack for about 3 days now but zero Bebop and Rocksteady’s. I feel like this is going to be a problem. With wave 1 the problem was that all the waves would show up and be gone instantly. For me personally that didn’t matter as I had the SDCC set but for people wanting those wave 1 figures that really sucked. The problem with wave 2 is now you have a bunch of people (including myself) who only want the Bebop and Rocksteady pack but not only are those going to only last minutes on the shelf but the other 3 packs in the wave are going to be far less wanted meaning they are going to peg warm and thus prevent Bebop and Rocksteady from getting a restock at those stores. This is not going to be fun or easy.
  8. I know this will definitely find it’s way in my sister’s collection when it comes out
  9. I mostly just collect the Legends figures so for me Wendy Richter and Jim Neidhart are the ones I am most excited about. Very enthusiastic to pick those up. Beyond that... I’ll definitely pick up the Macho King, the Goldberg, and HBK. Rey and Angle will be maybes—they are definitely top classic talent I collect but just not sure how much I need those versions in those outfits. The Rock I’d really need to compare to the dozen other Mattel Rock figures I already have to see if there is enough distinction to justify adding this one to the shelf. AJ, Lita, and Matt Hardy I have other Mattel versions of and for me personally one version of each of those specific performers is probably enough. I’m actually a big AJ fan but his WWE look is very different than how he looked when I was an active wrestling viewer so as I result I’m just not as much as interested in picking up more than one AJ based on his current look. Brock I’d only consider if he went on sale. $30 is more than I’m willing to pay for him given that I have other Brock figures and this outfit doesn’t trigger any specific memories for me. I’ve still yet to decide if the WWE/MOTU figures are something I need or not, but if I do get even one the Macho Man At Arms would be the one. And if I got 2 Rey would be the second one.
  10. While you may be right we don’t technically know yet what McFarlane is going to do with that license yet do we? I mean it’s certainly a reasonable assumption to think that a DC licensed aimed at retail probably would be in a similar wheelhouse as Essentials for all we know it’s possible their plans could be something different.
  11. These kick starters appear to be about 1/3 through and thus far the only one that seems in position to move forward is the Turtles one. (Of course there’s always a big jump at the end). Again though I’m really hoping none of these go through. This method of selling the customers these figures at a higher price and justifying that by including a bunch of crud those same customers would not be likely to pay an extra $25 for if they didn’t have to do so just to get a figure is just going to decrease the satisfaction within the customer base which will eventually hurt the business in addition to creating dissatisfaction with your customers. The best way to fix these is to have these fail so that NECA adjusts according and sells the wanted figures at the correct price point instead of lumping them into these boxes.
  12. Not bad with the card art but it doesn’t quiet sell me on it the way the MOTU card art did. I can still say I’ll definitely pick up Leo and will be tempted to pick up the others with the main thing holding me back being the price point
