  1. This piece is physically revolting to me. To me, this entire article REEKS of begging for attention and wanting validation for what he KNOWS is shitty behavior. So, no, he deserves no sympathy, whatever he got he deserves, and the fact he's trying to paint himself as a victim is fundamentally abhorrent. But you know what? Let's just say he's right. Let's say this is an instance of "cancel culture". If EVER there was a group of people that DESERVED to be cancelled, it is @##@@ scalpers. And make no mistake, he is one of them
  2. This makes a lot of sense, although they don't get sales from me if I don't find what I want. But holy #$##, that makes a lot of sense. I can see a lot of people being like " Damn, no luck. Well, at least while I'm here I might as well pick up some cat litter, etc etc"
  3. Could not be happier with this. Tri-Klops was one of my favorites of the MOTU line. Although my true favorite is Clawful. Hope he gets an Origins figure
  4. pfffttt hahahaha. Dude, BBTS gets their stock like, a month after everyone else. They are insultingly slow. If it weren't for the fact that they have a large selection and make it REALLY easy to cancel a preorder, I would have stopped using them years ago. But their customer service and wide availability of product makes them worth using. Also that flat $4 shipping helps. They're a great site for a toy hunter, because if you find the toy out in the wild, chances are, BBTS still won't be getting their stock in for another month and you can easily cancel your preorder.
  5. Ugly. I've decided to quit with NECA personally. their figures just have too many issue to be worth it to me. Not criticizing anyone else for collecting them, mind you
  6. I cannot convey to you how happy I am that I could preorder this at BBTS. No more do I have to hope I can get on Wal-marts website and get an order of these or go into a store and MAYBE get a hold of these before scalpers clean out the inventory. Sure, I'm gonna have to wait a while for BBTS to get them in stock, but hey, the peace of mind is worth the wait. The Land Shark is my most anticipated toy from this line. It was my favorite He-Man vehicle as a kid.
  7. Definitely getting Ultimate Warrior, since I missed the first one. Not really interested in the others...Well, maybe Kane, just to have a companion piece to the Undertaker.
  8. I think I would get Vader, but I don't really know these other guys. I mostly only know wrestlers from the Federation years
  9. Sorry, I'm going to have disagree with you hard on this one. Elvira DESERVED a Mezco One:12 figure, or at the very least an ultimate figure. This is just creepy (and not in Elvira's trademark way), in a way that is, to be honest, perverted. The whole concept behind Living Dead Dolls is that they are children in horror costumes. Because they are based on the old tradition of dolls looking like children because children are the one who play with dolls. That being said, I'm not going to judge anyone for wanting to buy this and support Elvira. Hell, I'M considering buying it because I'm a fan of hers and frankly, she doesn't get enough merchandise. But in all honesty, I don't want to, because there's just something SO off-putting about this doll
  10. God, Grimlock has a fat ass. Scourge looks excellent though, much better than that AWFUL Titans Return figure we got. I mean, I guess it was a good figure for the time, but this blows it completely out of the water
  11. I'm never going to win this, am I? That being said, if I did, I would totally get the Super7 Lion-O and...well. I dunno what else, but that would be a for sure purchase
  12. Eh, pass. I'm actually more into the G2 Sandstorm deco. I was never big into the conehead seekers really anyway.
  13. Only Final form and Golden. unless you mean Dragon Stars. but those are trash.
  14. This would be the biggest waste of money for me. Thankfully, I won't be buying these
  15. That's kinda what I mean. Yes, they did announce having the rights to Hokuto no Ken, I believe they announced it in 2019. They showed a prototype, but they have released no product, and it's almost 2021. I mean, licenses don't last forever, nor are they dependent on how many products you release. You can have a license and have it expire before you do anything with it. Storm isn't a company that is financially struggling, but they're also not a company that's big enough that they can afford to just get a major license and do nothing with it. That's a waste of a LOT of money. Storm announced the Darkstalkers license at the beginning of 2019 and we're just now getting our first figure of this HIGHLY requested toyline. Why they didn't start with Morrigan, the @##@@ mascot of the series, I'll never know, but Demitri is a strong start. He looks great. But still, I'm worried about some of Storm's decisions. If Demitri doesn't sell well, I'm worried they might just drop the license. Storm Collectibles are expensive toys. These are not just things you can design and release on a whim. I know, they aren't as expensive as Hot Toys or Sideshow, but for figures that are basically in scale with say, NECA toys which retail for $30 and Storm figures are almost THREE TIMES AS MUCH, they are not as easy of a sell. I have NEVER heard of Kengan Ashura, and I am a pretty knowledgeable anime fan. It just seems like a poor license choice. Now I know, Storm Collectibles doesn't just make figures for Americans, but you'd have to be naive to not realize that they are aware the West is one of their biggest customers. I mean, their Mortal Kombat line is designed with Western customers in mind. It certainly isn't made with Japanese or Chinese customers in mind, since the Mortal Kombat series is banned in both of those countries for gratuitous violence.
  16. I'm worried Storm is biting off more than they can chew here. There is such a thing as doing too much. And keep in mind, they aren't a massive company like Hasbro.
  17. Sweet. Moss Man is one of my favorite Masters. Now they just need to announce Clawful and I will have my two favorites again
  18. Tempting but I don’t buy Studio Series figures (except Shockwave) I just do not at all like the Bayverse designs .
  19. Looks great. I've always loved Spearmint flavored Arcee over the standard pink. I know the pink is classic, but I just find it more aesthetically pleasing
  20. I dunno. It could be good, I guess. They've done some decent live action shows based on other properties....but they've also done absolute garbage, too (Death Note)
