  1. An interesting approach from Todd, but I guess it's one of the most logical things to do in this case. Correct me if I'm wrong, but even if McFarlane toys has been around for almost 30 years I don't think the company is really that large. They still are a company focused on collectors, so they rarely depend on children buying their stuff, or at least untill now that he's got some popular licenses like Fortnite and DC. And even if he's got the money, I can understand why retailers like Walmart wouldn't be interested in carrying an expensive action figure based on an character that has no mainstream presence, 'cause for them, that wouldn't sell. Offering it through KS gives him the certainty of how many people actually want it, and how much are they willing to pay for it and its extras. At the end of the day, his running a company, and can't take that much risks of losing money.

    Personally, I'm not interested in his KS Spawn, not only because of my lack of attachment to the character, but because I'm outside the US and shipping, taxes and maybe some other paperwork that customs may feel like throwing in would be a pain in the ass.

     

  2. Gotta say, as a Halo fan, this company is really kicking it out of the park for me. I don't know anything about their other properties, but all of them look very nice. I've even recently bought one of their 6" Fortnite figures just to check them out, and it looks awesome. There's a ton of articulation and accessories. Really looking forward to what they will offer in the future.

    As for them getting other more mainstream properties, only one I see kinda possible would be DC, and only if McFarlane figures happen to do badly in the long run. Really a company I'll be keeping an eye on, especially since Mattel now doesn't have anything that interest me.

  3. Honestly, Jazwares/Wicked Cool Toys are kicking it out of the park, at least in my opinion. The figures seem to be pretty well painted and articulated. I'm even considering getting the 3.75" figures since they all look really cool. This may be the definitive Halo toy line for me. Hopefully these will see more success and a better distribution than the Mattel ones.

  4. Now that there are more photos I can confirm that there's really nothing from the DC line I'm interested in. The Arkham Batman looks nice, but I feel his legs are a bit smaller that the whole torso, giving him a kinda cartoony look, or at least that's how it comes across in the pics.

    The My Hero Academia figures are neat, the sculpt and accessories look cool, my only complain is how the faces look. The only one that looks ok from this second wave is Iida. 

    Keanu looks cool, might wanna get him. As for Samurai, I'll wait for the female version.

  5. Yes! More MMPR. Really glad that we're getting all the team together. I'm tempted to get the Time Force team as well. What we need is more villains. Although in this case, I guess the Ranger Slayer is the villain in this wave. She looks dope.

    Like what I'm seeing, but we still have 27 years of Power Rangers to go through. I'm hoping they'll give the comic characters a rest for a bit.

    I wanna see characters from the actual show, not stuff they made up for what basically constitutes high-end fan fiction.

    I mean, I've seen Lord Drakkon has sold very well. My guess is that's the reason they're making these. And as @clockstomper said, it may also have to do with the fact that they're part of that mobile game.

    Jazwares, a global leader in play, and All Elite Wrestling (AEW), the new professional wrestling league that is taking America by storm, are tag-teaming on AEW’s first line of action figures and role play collectibles. Featuring AEW World Champion Chris Jericho, Cody, The Young Bucks, Kenny Omega, Jon Moxley and more, the new AEW UNRIVALED line will be on display at Jazwares’ booth at Toy Fair New York on Feb. 22-26, and will hit retail later this year.

    AEW UNRIVALED collectible action figures will boast 25 points of articulation, real 3d scanned likenesses and a variety of accessories and authentic ring wear. With multiple Waves per season, fans can collect the stars of TNT’s new, popular weekly show AEW DYNAMITE, including MJF, Darby Allin, Dr. Britt Baker, Brandi Rhodes, Hangman Page, Jurassic Express and many more.

    Each Wave will include limited edition and rare variants to add chase and elation to every release. Other authentic items for Fall 2020 will include the AEW UNRIVALED: Action Ring to play-and-display UNRIVALED figures and the AEW World Championship Title Belt, with even more formats and innovations in development for future seasons.

    “AEW has very quickly become one of the most provocative, engaging and relevant wrestling brands of all time. It is a league embraced by generations of fans and collectors in a genre with a huge appetite for authentic product,” said Jeremy Padawer, EVP / Partner Jazwares. “We plan to build out the kind of program that can appeal both to the display collector and also to younger fans who want a tangible way to play and interact with their heroes,” said Michael Rinzler, EVP / Partner Jazwares.

    “When AEW launched just over a year ago, we couldn’t have imagined there would be a toy line this soon, featuring our wrestlers, making its debut at Toy Fair in New York City,” said Dana Massie, Chief Marketing and Merchandising Officer. “But, we’ve always known from the start that we have the greatest fans in the world, and we’re constantly looking for new ways to positively engage and connect with them in ways that matter. Our partnership with Jazwares ramps up our commitment to fan engagement, and we hope our fans will love the AEW action figures and collectibles representing the personalities who have become part of their lives each Wednesday on TNT, at our pay-per-view events and beyond.”

    This gives me more hopes for their halo line! I'm not into wrestling, but these sure look cool.

    And all at once the toy companies shouted, "F*ck Mcfarlane toys" lol. 

    I mean...yeah. Their recently announced wave two looks actually cool, but the faces are hideous. That's the only thing he'd need to improve imo. 

    As for this line, they look better than I anticipated, and seem to have a much better scale than I initially thought. The first images kinda make it look like All Might was barely taller that Deku and Kacchan. I'm really glad that's not the case.
