  1. Yes and it will deliver just like Snake Mountain did. Amazing job they did getting it out despite the entire effing world being shut down.
  2. Why would you complain about this? Why not go all original? There's no reason not to do it if they can afford to do it. I wish none of them featured reuse. That would be ideal. The newer waves are much easier to find. I have about 5 or maybe 6 Targets in my area and almost every one of them have had a full case of 6 available, so I've found between 25 and 30 Baxter 2pks and I've found 6 Krang androids. Likewise the Triceratons 2pks before them were equally as plentiful. The only one I haven't found in the wild is the Traag 2pk but that was back before this new easier to find era be
  3. Clamp Champ is over at Entertainment Earth and they still have Scare Glow available as a single (BBTS single sold out about an hour after it went up). So the boxed set Mer-Man is getting a single release? I don't think I like that given the cost of the LoP boxed set. Those should remain 100% exclusive. Also, hopefully that Evil Lyn that's in the newer assortment is a different version. I don't know why they'd only reissue one figure into a newer wave, so I'm guessing there will be something different about it.
  4. They don't have much choice. It comes down to licensing restrictions. Only one company at a time can make characters in a specific scale, so if you can't do 6" then you have to do 7" and if you can't do 6" plastic and don't want to do 7" plastic then you can do 6" plastic with diecast parts like Disney Store Star Wars. I guess it doesn't extend to Japan since they obviously have 6" SW lines but maybe it has something to do with something I don't know about. Regardless they are a business and they're going to do what nets them the most money because that's the only reason they make toys is to m
  5. These TMNT 2pks are pretty easy to find in and around the Tulsa area. I've easily found multiples of them all except the Grannitor set. For some reason he's impossible to find.
  6. This is a QC issue at the factory most likely ala the Walgreens exclusive white ranger with the pointy helmet issue. In that case they replaced the head for free, and in that fig's case it was missing most if not all of the black paint which was shown on both the illustration on the front of the box and the rendering on the back of it. If you look at the illustration on the front and rendering on the back of this new figure it is obvious that the missing black paint is supposed to be there (nose, inside of mouth, and around the eyes). With that said, then I think they need to either offer up a
  7. Except he isn't reusing much of anything. Most of them are all new. There are the monochrome chase figs but those don't really count given those are next to impossible to find. There have only been a couple of Batmans that had an alternate blue/grey or black/grey 2nd version, but most of the rest are completely unique. However as you said he is a business man and Batman is where the money is at and that's what he's gonna focus on. The other characters in the story lines will come along for the ride, but he's not going to waste resources making figs that he knows won't sell.
  8. They aren't badly put together. I have all of them (there are hundreds of them now) and they're well done. The sculpting is superb. The iffy ones were during the Funko years. The last couple of Funko waves and everything since they parted ways have been some of nicest figs on the market. They're also not too expensive. You get what you pay for, and what you get is quality figures and spectacular presentation (the cardbacks). It's not a nostalgia cashgrab. The cash grabs would be the clone lines. Reaction was the first big line to appeal to the old bastards like me that love this stuff. They're
  9. They have been working on it. I saw 5 Bebop/Rocksteady 2pks last week spread across 2 different Targets and they both had a pair of Shredder/Leonardo 2pks from Series 1. Those were also paired with 3 Rodney Roadkill 2pks. All have since been sold, but I ran across 5 Rodney Roadkills today (Nov. 6, 2020), as well as 3 Metal Heads, so they're releasing items. I even took a picture of the shelf when I found all these. My phone is literally about 15 years old, so the camera sucks, but you can see the TMNT there on the bottom. All that other NECA stuff you see is completely full all the way back to
  10. MOTU are at every Walmart now. I saw plenty of Evil Lyn, Teela, Beast-Man, and Man-at-Arms at at least five different WMs this week and about 60 He-Man and Skeletors and a few Battle Cats. The only thing I haven't seen for a while is the sled, but I was finding those alot during the first couple weeks after the official release.
  11. Yes, they are collectors items. They wouldn't have designed the card backs the way they have if they were simply meant for kids. Plenty of people pay $15-17 for 5POA 3.75" figures. Reaction figs are this exact thing and they cost $18 each and were $15 before that, and the line somewhere between 300-400 figures (I think..I haven't taken an inventory in a while) and there are dozens more on the way or that have been announced. Just because a fig is 5POA doesn't mean it's not a collector oriented figure. There are hundreds of 5POA Star Wars figures at this point and many of those characters will
  12. It's part of a bigger line comprised of many different properties that are popular in pop culture enthusiast circles. It's basically like Super7's Reaction line except they're a bit larger and feature double the articulation and are boxed instead of carded. There will be something for everyone, and there is a new LOTR series coming and a new game featuring everyone's favorite Precious spouting weirdo, so there will be a bit of demand for it probably.
  13. For those who have trouble finding these in Target, try going on Thursday or Fridays to see if the NECA rep has been there to restock. They usually pay a store a visit when that store's NECA Ambassador has sent them a picture of the shelf. They base their decision on those images. I know someone who is an Ambassador at one of our 6 Targets, and he explained it all to me. They get a $20 gift card I think in exchange. Anyway, using this information I have been able to semi-predict when to visit certain stores, and was more than successful on at least two occasions. On the first Eureka! day
  14. It ended in such a way that it doesn't really need a follow-up season. (spoiler starts here) The introduction of the giant bugs is a nice segue into the movie, (spoiler ends here), so we know what happens. It's not like it ended on some completely unrelated cliffhanger that leaves us blue balled forever. Cult productions are cult for a reason, few people actually like them or care except a tiny cult of people. That's not enough to sustain a business.
  15. It's extremely easy to find MOTU Origins now. I can go to any of the 10+ WMs in my area and find most of the figures at most stores. There are dozens of Skeletors and He-Mans all over the place and there is an enormous endcap at all of them. The mad rush to get these on week 1 is over so all the faux outrage shouldn't be a thing anymore. Of course I'm the guy that has found every single TMNT Target (found 7 Leatherhead 2pks, 2 Metal Heads, and 2 Casey Jones 2pks in one day and found 6-7 Bebop 2pks in 1 day when those were new) and TMNT WM 2pk (3 in one day) out in the wild and most of the Targ
  16. Why is it odd? They're probably going to make every single character from the show as long as sales continue, so this isn't odd at all. Pumm-Ra isn't some character no one has ever heard of, he's from a fan favorite episode. There are no odd figures.
  17. They were listed on the BBTS several months ago, and they are one of the official places to preorder it (this is made clear on the Power-Con website). I preordered the 5-pack in May and the She-Ra Origins single pack in July. These sold out months ago.
  18. Geez, spell the character's name right. In two articles you spell it Zoro in both the headline and the body of the article. It's spelled Zorro and has been that way for 101 years (August 9th, 1919).
  19. It's accusation, so no he doesn't deserve it. Not yet anyway. There have been too many of these me Too accusations proven false to simply believe all women these days. Most of the accusations are complete hogwash, and only a few of them are authentic. Given the vast number of accusers involved it may very well be true, but I'd like to know what they consider abuse or whatever words they use. Sometimes what these accusers classify as abuse is nothing more than innocent flirting that only a crazy person would think is abuse, and lots of these accusers are downright crazy.
