  1. They're the exact opposite of boring. They're perfect. Also, I'm not seeing how Hasbro is being carried by Legends, Classified, TF, and PR. Those are literally the premiere brands. Star Wars still sells and not sure about the Fortnite line from a sales POV, but they're one of the strongest lines going in multiple scales, although 6" is all that applies for Hasbro. They're not being carried by them, that is what they're known for on top of everything else. A couple of dud Haslabs hardly equals a "rough year." They're a billion dollar company. All hail the billionaires. Anyway, the Indy figures are better than I could imagine and I even like the windowless boxes which I normally hate. The designs just work for this property plus it could be dressed up from the very beginning instead of changing something that has existed for years. I also can't believe I'll finally have a set of the 80s line on card. Hopefully, they do the playsets. Those cardbacks are one of the best cardbacks of the 80s thanks to that use of color and the overall style.
  2. It'll be fine. It's supposed to be that way and there are plenty of other Czarface figures to fill it in. Playsets from the big boys usually only come with one figure or nothing, so it's not an issue. Yes, it'll also be pricey, but that's also OK, too. These things don't make themselves and Super7 isn't Hasbro/Mattel. This will make the 5th playset in this style they've released (2 versions of Alien, Planet of the Apes vintage, Phantom Starkiller, and now this).
  3. Cavill has in no way "aged out" of playing Superman. What in the hell are you talking about? He's in his prime and the perfect age to play the part. He's perfect for it. Right now.
  4. To say that this campaign wasn't a huge success with almost 9,300 backers is ridiculous. We got an effing classic Eternia out of it for God's sake and a couple of bonus items. This was an enormous success. We'll get the other figure down the line but not just this go round. Huge win for the line and collectors.
  5. These things are great and all but there's no reason why these should cost $300 each. They're glorified 5POA figures with a simple action feature. You're paying the nostalgia tax on this one. I have two of those Skeletors and they're unique but these shouldn't even cost half of what they're asking and they're absolutely WORTHLESS on the secondary market if you ever wanted to sell it off. They go for retail or sometimes less than retail and even for the more rare all black Skeletor. The ones that have $400+ price tags usually don't sell and sit on there for months.
  6. None of them are hard to find. They peg warm at Walmart and Target for about 2-3 weeks and then depending on the character it'll continue or they'll be gone.
  7. He's $50 because he's a huge figure like all the other huge Spawn figures. It's in the name of the character.
  8. These plastic free retro style cardbacks are awful. Good grief, Hasbro, change it to a plastic bubble if you're going to make this look like a retro line. Also, if you want to really fix this issue that will satisfy both the collectors and help with your dubious environmental efforts then keep the clear plastic sheet or bubble on your products but replace the big, bulky uniquely tooled plastic tray that holds the figures in place with the cardboard version you are using now with plastic free. You might have to tweak the design of the insert a tad just so it all looks nice, but that will dramatically cut back on plastic use but still satisfy the MOC/MIB collectors, since we'll be able to see what is in the box. This not knowing what you bought until its too late BS is nonsense. I've already had to take back multiple items that people returned and swapped out the figs.
  9. They've already put out a Metaluna Reaction years ago. Can't recall if it was only during the Funko years or if they did a new one post-Funko. They redid most of them. I'm assuming for ownership of tooling reasons.
  10. The only way you/we stand a chance of getting every character is if he (and other companies) put out variants/repaints of pre-existing molds/tools. Tooling is insanely expensive which is why there's reuse and complete reissues (for those who don't know this) and the way a line can go deeper into a line is by having it financed by continued variants and reissues. McFarlane has this down to a fine art with his stubborn with the whole masked/unmasked and/or bloody/not bloody and of course those gray versions, so he knows how to get the most out of a tool.
  11. The rocks appearing in front of the text on the card needs to be tweaked. That just look awful where it's cut off. Nice idea. Horrible execution.
  12. So, it's a 25th Anniversary style line except more realistic and gritty. If it sells then they'll put out every character you can imagine if you follow their other 3.75" lines. I'd rather have a huge line of these then the o-ring line from Pulse given the paltry amount of figures that will trickle out from that line. Hiya releases crap tons of Aliens and Predators. If it exists in a movie you'll have a clean, battle damaged, mask on, mask off, and invisible and/or Predator vision version of it in the line. I think I have 30+ characters now spread across all of the films and spinoffs (except Prometheus and Covenant but give it time). It appears they're doing the same with Judge Dredd and they've done quite a few Robocop characters over the years, so I think this line will be huge if the sales are there. I can't believe they haven't licensed Terminator either given all of these properties have crossed over with each other in the past. They have a history of doing vehicles too but not as many and expensive as hell. The armored personnel carrier from Aliens comes in standard and on fire version at $250 each and there's a 3rd one with a different paint app and maybe different tooling for the same price. They have McFarlanitis when it comes to variants and selling them all individually instead of packing it all together but it's still a great line at the end of the day.
  13. Found a couple of these at Target about 2 or 3 weeks ago. Couldn't believe it.
  14. There's nothing surprising about using the 4 mains first. McFarlane is going where the money is at and the money is at whom the normies know. The normies don't know who the f___ Egghead is. Also, we got a Yvonne Craig figure under Mattel, so it can happen. Money can make anything happen.
  15. Any one can find less than 3 minutes in a 24-hour period to pre-order a figure. Unless you're in a cave with no working connection of any kind to the internet then you have no excuse. No one is completely occupied for an entire 24 hour period.
