  1. These stretch goals so far stink of something the gaming industry pulls with DLC (paid) content. They develop a game and then strip certain features meant for the final version of the game upfront out of the game so that they can sell it back to the consumer for more money. So far, these HISS stretch goals seem to be the same practice. They developed a vehicle with all of the bells and whistles in tact and then took certain features away to offer up as "upgrades" to the item. This is unacceptable, but at least they're not a bag of bones and a cardboard backdrop or some other nonsense that's not a huge slap in the face like those Rancor stretch goals. Regardless, these first two upgrades should have come with the vehicle out of the box, since they would if this were offered up in store.
  2. This plastic free packaging that contains more plastic than what they removed is worse than I thought. All they have a problem with is the big plastic tray inside the packaging that holds the figures or pieces in place. It's not really the window that was the issue. Not sure why they can't substitute the cardboard solution for the interior and give us the window and/or bubble. I've been collecting for almost 50 years, and I'm on the verge of quitting if everything goes plastic free. I'm a MIB collector for the most part with a few exceptions and I'll quit this entire hobby if I have to buy a bunch of crap boxes with pictures of handpainted prototypes of what I'm buying plastered all over them. I'll take my business to the small fry that know better and don't treat their customers like dogshit.
  3. His freeze ray qualifies as a gun, so it isn't going to be included because WB are idiots.
  4. Hey Hasbro! If someone who works there is reading this then just know all of us mint in box collectors that don't open our figures are out on these plastic free offerings. There's no point in buying something if I can't see it without opening the item. It's going to cost you millions in lost revenue, and I'll return once you revert back to the previous packaging. Since the issue seems to be the big bulky plastic tray and not the window on the front of the box, why don't you devise a way to have the figure held in place without plastic and then keep the plastic window like always. Problem solved. I sure as hell hope you don't plan on changing the packaging on Star Wars: The Vintage Collection. If you do then I will no longer support Hasbro with any of your lines. Gotta draw a line somewhere and not support companies that don't seem to give a good goddamn what some of their customers want. I'll gladly support your competition and give them my thousands of dollars.
  5. BSN is garbage, though. The pics they release are all of handpainted prototypes and look nothing like the real figure. That line was looking like a winner until I got to see real figures in front of me, and then I said no thanks other than the two Cowboy Bebop figs. Yes, Super7 needs to do some anime Reaction. It's perfect for something like Dragonball given the vast array of characters each of those shows contains. It could support a line for years. I can't afford something like the Figurarts line and the Bandai USA line is fine but Reaction could give us a line with crap tons of characters in a short period of time and plus there are plenty of opportunities for legit reuse and/or paint variants given it's literally part of the property.
  6. It's all sold out in less than 15 minutes because of course it is.
  7. The first look at his frickin' stuntman's silhouette. Good going there Publicity Dept.
  8. It was never supposed to look exactly like the show version. It has been Marvel Legendized, so it looks exactly like it's supposed to look. It's the exact same thing they do with Star Wars Black Series when they incorporate a character that only showed up in an animated show. It gets put through the Black Series filter and comes out looking like the character but slightly more realistic. I personally think Morph looks exactly like the show version with just a touch of realism thrown in.
  9. Pegwarmers? They fly off shelves at Target and the fact that they've put out so many characters so quickly means they're selling. You don't have to buy the 100 different versions of the army builders but they are there for people who want them for variety. There's also a Target exclusive red ninja in stores, now.
  10. The "weird choices" are what Super7 are known for. It's done on purpose to show customers that they are in for the long haul. This line will continue on for a decade or more if the sales are good given the fact that there is well over a thousand characters and variations galore to choose from. They don't need to start off with all of the main characters and I don't want them to. They're huge figures which is why they're the same. These aren't the size of what you'd find in stores. They're 7" scale and with the chunky style of the art these figures are much beefier than your average Ultimates figure. Also, there is no problem with detail. They literally look exactly like they should. They can't have more detail when there is none to add unless you pull a Mezco and add it.
  11. It's not the 3rd season, it's the 2nd season. Parts 1 and 2 of what has already been on Netflix was a split season one. I don't care what "they" call it, it's one thing animated at the same time and tells one specific story. Another piece of verification is the actor playing Orko said he has recorded new lines, as well. In addition, per Smith Netflix told him this was a multi-season project. The Revelations sub-set of the Masterverse line will continue to grow and that's a great thing. It's the closest thing to MOTU Classics were going to get until Classics starts up again if and when Super7 gets the license back (Brian Flynn has said as much pubically).
  12. These are just atrocious. Thank goodness we're getting a Revelations season 2. Hopefully the figure line is still with us by the time it debuts whenever that may be. Probably 1-2 years at this point. Hamill is voicing Skeletor lines now as is the person that does Orko.
  13. It'll mean the end of Mattel if it happens TRU went away in the USA because of an equity firm that directly led to them being forced to close. Toy Galaxy has a great video on the "murder" of TRU and other places like that via the firm they dealt with.
  14. He'll be released in both Ultimates and Reaction. Flynn loves Robin Hood Disney, so he'll release him in both lines most likely.
  15. No, it doesn't need to stay in the comic. This line is like Masterverse in that it caters to every source of Power Rangers. We've already had multiple comic character releases at this point, and this is an easy way to make extra money on the current molds which is how you get a line to delve deeper into more obscure characters. MMPR is the most popular line-up so it only makes sense to release every single variant you can, and if you aren't a completist then it doesn't really matter.
  16. They can sell specific weapons in packs. Super7 got around the gun issue with their new Thundercats character by including it with her space cycle. It's a $175 gun, but if you want it then you've got to get it or wait until someone lists it online or a fake one.
  17. Those variants are right up McFarlane's alley. He'll release a figure 50 times if he can get 50 legit variations out of it. Instead of release a figure with both a masked and unmasked head he'll release it twice at full price to double his profits. I found a Platinum Edition Riddler yesterday which is Riddler without a mask. I didn't even know it was a thing and I keep up with the line. He snuck one past me. He's been doing this crap since the 90s. He'll also release bloody variants if it's something that suits the character. I just got a blood soaked Violator from Gamestop, so now I have two of those huge things. I complain and #$## about it but I still get it don't I?
  18. Masterverse was never supposed to be the line strictly for Revelations. It's supposed to be a catch all line and it's beginning was Revelations. There's plenty of product coming out for all of the lines.
  19. Spent a lot on both lines but probably more on McFarlane. I also see a lot less McFarlane DC on shelves esp when new crap arrives. Certain pegwarmers persist, but most of Marvel's 2021 lineup was one big pegwarmer given their Kung Pow Phooey and The Young and the Restless lines didn't sell with the latter still clogging most aisles.
  20. It's Super7's version of Mezco's Rumble Society. Well done bad guys that are based on classic bad guy tropes and/or styles/designs.
  21. DC Comics is about 5 seconds away from going into bankruptcy. The only comics titles that sell are Batman related. Action Comics and that new one with his son aren't even in the top 50 in sales, so they're in trouble. This is why they pound on the Batman drum so much. Also, McFarlane is in this to make money, and Batman is what sells, so he's going to go heavy with it. Every company produces countless variants of Batman, so this is nothing new. Kenner literally produced over 200 different Batmans from 1989 into the 90s and Mattel did their fair share. I'd say Mattel's Multiverse line was much more diverse than anything McFarlane has done, but McFarlane is focusing on more modern versions that fall in line with his preferred aesthetic. He should take that DC Icons license he has now and get to work relaunching it as the 6" line that it is and give Marvel Legends a run for it's money. Basically DC Universe but revamped using modern engineering and paint. There's a hole in DC 6" and it needs filling.
  22. Bumblebee ended up there because of overstock due to huge demand of the initial Optimus and Megatron that was next to impossible to find. Bumblebee is the only Reaction Target exclusive that was easy to find. There have been 4 Primes and 4 Megatrons in all and I think I saw one of the Primes once. The current all gold versions which are based on an episode of the old show (Super7 variants all make sense and aren't done just because) just became available on the website, but I haven't seen a store version, yet. There are also a couple of new G.I. Joe exclusives that I just got sent to me that were only available through one of their Friday Collector Corner promotions last year, so you'll probably never see them on pegs unless they eventually do a small run of them.
  23. They can't just start selling it online. There are contracts in place and Target physical stores and Target.com are two completely different entities. One has nothing to do with the other and have their own inventories.
  24. Hasbro and Mattel released hundreds of Batman figs so there are plenty of Batman variants to make. They made up most of what they released but McFarlane is at least focusing on comic related designs.
