  1. Had a great day 1 at Power-Con and a great 1st day back on a convention floor after a 2 year hiatus. Unfortunately the Mondo line took a very long time despite me being very close to the front of the line so I missed the Mattel panel but I appreciate being able to come here and see the recap of what I missed.
  2. Bought 1 plus Goliath on Neca’s site this morning. Really hate paying these shipping charges everytime but given the poor retail distribution that just seems like the only option. It just continues to be a shame NECA can’t work with someone like BBTS to make quantities available online through a site where saving on shipping is possible.
  3. I’ve never been that much into minimarts and only have a few random ones in my collection but I am into GI Joe so these are already on preorder for me. Hope they do a second set with Duke, Zartan, Destro, and Baroness.
  4. These look great and I’m planning on picking up all 4. I am curious though didn’t Diamond announce not that long ago that they were going to be making Princess Bride figures???? I want to say that announcement was fairly recent (like maybe early 2020). What ever happened to those and how did McF get the license so quickly. I’m not complaining as I think I’d rather get these 4 versus the 1 or 2 we would have gotten from Diamond but I’m just curious about what happened.
  5. Did they say how many will be available at Power-Con? And for that matter has there been any word from the 4Horsemen on rather or not they are having any exclusives at their table this year. 4 Horsemen are usually my first stop at Power-Con but if they aren’t doing anything this year maybe I’ll go to Mondo first.
  6. I thought the original was fun and I wish I’d gotten one (I would have but with my industry still suffering from the pandemic I thought it wiser to be more frugal), but I have zero interests in these repaints. It’s an homage to an homage at this point and at the price it needs to be more interesting than that.
  7. Looks fine but I think I’m just going to stick with my McFarlane and Funko reaction figures on my Stranger Things shelf. But it’s a shame neither of those ever gave us any of the teen characters outside of Barb and neither gave us a Wynona Ryder. If Bandai does that I might reconsider collecting this new line.
  8. Glad he’s coming. I’d love to see them tackle both a toon and a comic version.
  9. Working in the film industry I’ve met Punk a couple of times in recent years and I was in the room at SDCC that year they did the angle with Punk and Triple H during the Mattel panel but I fell out of watching wrestling right around the time Punk was first coming to WWE so I never watched any of that era while it was happening. But having since gone back and looked at some of his past highlights and seeing his return promo on AEW last week I’m feeling compelled to start paying attention again. Not sure if it will be enough to get me to watch entire shows on a regular basis but it does have me thinking I should possibly get a CM Punk figure for my collection despite the fact that I normally only collect legends (pre 2006) and only have 3 figures in my entire collection of guys that came around later.
  10. Should be a good looking wave, I’m starting to run out of room in my Turtles section of the room so I’ll need to figure out how I want to justify those displays before continuing to go all in on these.
  11. These are tempting.... but at $55.... I just don’t know that I can a) squeeze it into the budget and b) justify paying that price given that I have hundreds of Simpsons figures already from Playmates, NECA, McFarlane, Mattel, Kidrobot, etc. Very cool figures and nice to get but at the higher price point I think I can’t be all in on this one and at best might just cherry pick a couple and at worst may just have to pass on all of them. For wave one I think the most likely scenario for me is only picking up Poochie
  12. I’m excited to see who all will be in this line up and glad the majority aren’t exclusive. Hopefully there’s general better distribution and stocking of the figures going forward.
  13. I’ve always thought the worst was a cool idea and I’ve often stopped to admire the figures when I’ve seen them in the Super7 store or at a convention. The problem is while they are cool and a neat idea I have no direct emotional attachment to them and thus in a world of limited budget and space they get passed over. Same will be true with these Ultimates but while I will pass I admire the concept and execution. if I were to ever start a worst collection though honestly I think I’d start with the reaction line. A) that price is a fair amount easier and b) I think that vintage style marries well with the concept.
  14. Macho Man was absolutely what pushed me over the line to buy one. I was looking at it before and wanted it but without something else added I just couldn’t justify the price in my head and until the Macho Man I was seeing stuff that would be nice to have but nothing I felt really excited to get.
  15. I’ll need to see them but I’m guessing at that price it will be a pass for me. I’ve enjoyed monster/TMNT cross over figures before and have a lot of them but those are better when they are more playful toys coming out at a cheaper price point. Spending higher dollar and getting a more highly detailed version of these goofy crossovers don’t really appeal to me.
  16. Well, they not only made it but they also achieved all the add ons. I never would have thought that was possible. I feel much better about my purchase now. Here’s hoping Galactus can reach all the stretch goals as well
  17. I didn’t think it would either but yeah it happened. 5742 now. Now if it can only hit 7000 to add Doink I’ll feel much better about my purchase.
  18. Well 13 hours until the window for getting the Macho Man included with your order closes and they are sitting at 81% of their minimum. Once that Macho Man window closes in reality we have to assume the purchases are more or less done as waiting to make the purchase once Macho Man is no longer available makes zero sense. Not sure if it will get the remaining 19% in 13 hours or not. Reaching Doink seems out of the question unless there are some big orders (like Ringside, BBTS, etc) that have yet to be added in. That’s really unfortunate since without that extra bonus 3rd figure being included I’m going to feel like I overpaid (assuming we even reach the minimum). I feel similar about Galactus. I think that one will definitely reach the minimum but getting up to the additional stretch goals past Frankie feels a little unlikely which makes the $400 feel even more pricey.
  19. I thought this was going to be a NECA store exclusive similar to Tokka Rhazza—am I wrong? The unrevealed “farm house” 2 pack I presumed would be the only Walmart store April
  20. I think it’s cool and I like the A-Team and have most of the vintage toys but unlike Ghostbusters or Back to the Future I feel like the A-Team has less cross generational appeal. People who grew up with it love it but the next generation of adults and kids today don’t really care enough to be into it. That’s not a negative, just an observation that this release feels like it’s going to really only appeal to a certain demo of adult collectors where as Ghostbusters and BTTF had kids, adults, etc.
  21. I’m mostly a loose collector but when it comes to convention items I like to always keep one in package. They just often make a neat display and this years power con items are no exception. The catch is packaged items take up more space and it’s getting harder and harder to find room. Come Power-Con I’m going to need to drastically re organize my MOTU display cases again
  22. Just too much Batman. That’s not to say they shouldn’t make The Batman movie figures. It’s to say that they need to do less Batman in general so that when a new movie comes out that justifies a bunch of new figures we’re not already in Batman overload
  23. I’d be tempted to preorder this if it were possible to combine it with other items to save on shipping but since GameStop preorders don’t work that way I just have to hope it doesn’t pre sell out
  24. I’m surprised we haven’t seen the Neutrinos mixed in the line already. This makes me think that the only reason for saving all of them at once is maybe there is a plan to release them as a set that includes their flying car. Wasn’t there an interview s loooong time ago where they hinted at things looking pretty positive when it came to including Usagi?
