  1. With the exception of the Target figures, you can buy the GI Joe figures online, so they aren't impossible to find. I can go out right now and buy the entire first series at one of our local Vintage Stocks at $25 each, and I can find the Cobra Commander wave at Walgreens. I just got the series 1 repaints from BigBadToyStore Hasbro isn't trying to kill the line. Target gets their exclusives because Target is paying Hasbro a huge amount of money to sell them. The stores are Hasbro's customers, so they're doing fine, and we are irrelevant to them from a business POV. The stores' customers ar
  2. Those original series 1 figures are harder to find now where I'm at, and the various metal series and the John Stewart Green Lantern are everywhere. There are dozens or possibly a couple hundred spread across the various stores where I'm at and you can find most of the figs with the exception of maybe Harley Quinn and the animated series Superman and possibly a couple of those early Batmans. Everything else is plentiful.
  3. The fan campaign had everything to do with it, and WB also had nothing to do with it. None of this would have happened if AT&T hadn't merged with WB. The execs at WB absolutely hate Snyder's movies and they never had any plans to allow the Snyder Cut to be completed (although there has always been a cut that was shorter than 4 hrs but longer than the theatrical cut....this is the one that Mamoa and others referenced when they said they had seen it and Snyder has said it was a completed edit with Junkie XL's music at that time in place). As soon as the merger happened, the Snyder Cut was gr
  4. I'm sure there's a reason the sword went away. It could be a licensing issue with the game company which would flat out prohibit him from selling the figure with the sword or something else we wouldn't be privvy to.
  5. The Batman figure from the Gold label wasn't a repaint. It is getting a repaint, but the Gold version was the first. Everything else is a variant and based on the color gold. I have no issue with it. One doesn't have to buy it which is the beauty of repaints.
  6. Yeah, the Loot Crate fad has been fading because you pay what you pay and get a bunch of stuff you don't really want and occasionally got something you did want. They were about to close down and then the person that owns NECA swooped in and took over Loot Crate and that was when NECA figures started showing up. This would be back when the pre-TMNT Splinter Spirit figure was offered (the glow in the dark variant).
  7. The Loot Crates aren't sold in stores, so I don't know why you'd say they never see the light of day in your neck of the woods. They're sold exclusively online through the Loot Crate website. NECA bought the Loot Crate brand after it went out of business, and they have successfully found a way to make it work and profitable for certain things.
  8. There's about 50 Slimers and Stay Puft in Walmarts around here right now, as well as all of the Ghostbusters and some of the other items they've put out. They've been warming pegs for months here, but they recently refilled everything on top of a new Plasma series Ecto-1. I don't foresee that line continuing given the poor sales of wave 1. I don't think it would have mattered if the movie had come out, either. Kids don't care about GB, and anyone that was going to buy these would have already bought them whether there's a movie or not.
  9. Is this the 4" line or 2.5" line? Probably 2.5" but I only buy 4" so I don't want to worry about looking out for this if I don't need to.
  10. There are well over 150+ Fortnite figures within the 4", 6", and 7" figure lines, so I don't see that happening. Well over half of those are 4" and McFarlane made 30+ 7" figs and has one more left. The rest go to Jazwares 6" and those numbers don't even include the smaller scales. All 3 lines are fantastic, and I always preferred McFarlane's line. They were just built better than the 6" line, and he definitely has the best Peely out of all of them. The 6" and 4" Peely are awful. The fact that 4" will continue makes me happy. That's a huge and varied line and they always release a massive amoun
  11. If he was in the old cartoon then we'll get him eventually, but I have read he was only in one of the arcade games which means he'll never see a release in the Target line. The same holds true for the pirate Bebop and Rocksteady figs in the Arcade line.
  12. This pic is missing the 3 paint deco variants painted to reflect the original 80s toys. These figs are even better on the card given the artwork is half the reason to own them. These are superior to Ultimate for me.
  13. An entire wave of four 2-packs is $225, so the costs per figure is a bit more given there are only 5 of them, but you're paying for the exclusivity factor after that and the fact that this will probably be the only time you'll be able to get these. Any figs you don't want you can sell off on eBay and given the prices they go for this entire thing pays for itself. I paid $150 for the first Lootcrate, but I only collect the Animated stuff, so I got the entire $150 back and change reselling the rest. If I had hung onto them a bit longer, I could have doubled+ that.
  14. EDIT: The press release says the 3D render is from the kid's show and NOT the Smith show, so that's a relief. Now, if series 1 of Masterverse is supposed to be from Revelations then does that mean these 3 fantastic figs and Battle Cat are the Smith versions? Pics of the Masterverse Skeletor, He-Man and Battle Cat, and Evil Lyn are over on Toyark. There's also a 3D render of He-Man and Battle Cat from one of the two new shows. The Masterverse figs are awesome. I love them. The "show" design is effing awful. I haven't gotten into details beyond it's from a show, so I don't know if it's the
  15. It says it'll be a "diverse lead." That's fancy talk for race and/or gender swap most likely.
