  1. That Trouble Bubble is insane and I never ever would have expected that, but It was one of my #1 wants. I didn't think other people loved it as much as I did. And the Tele-Viper is a total upgrade of the original; the original was cool but looked like a pencil pusher. This Tele-Viper looks like a soldier with a technical specialty, not a just a technician. I would love an extra vest if they're going to give us 3 heads but that would just be icing on the cake. Also the Steel Corps are perfect, another favorite of mine updated with great details and tons of cool parts.
  2. I look forward to seeing this compared to a 4" World of Nintendo Mario - I'm glad I held off on the Bowser from that line because this looks perfect.
  3. What an odd choice. I'm not on any TMNT specific boards so I could be wrong but it feels like these will only interest 1. Collectors of rare TMNT stuff who don't care if it's cool or looks good but care more about oddities and rarities... but then they would prefer the real thing since their interest is in the "rarity" of the genuine item 2. Collectors who want a more complete TMNT collection but can't get the rare item so may be happy to have this instead. Although vintage collectors who care about something being "the original" and not just looking like it wont be interested so that's a 70/30 split I think. 3. Collectors who genuinely consider this particular item to be good with or without nostalgia and just like it regardless of whether its the original or re-release. There may be dozens of these people but these particular figures were some of the weaker more gimmicky ones IMO so it's hard to imagine someone right now looking at these and going, you know what there are so many well sculpted fun TMNT figures but these right here are what I really want. 4. At this price-point many may grab one as a curiosity. I have to admit I am a bit smitten by Raphael's packaging with implores the reader to "Shove it in my shell".
  4. I think this is shaping up to be one of their best assortments yet. There's a pretty broad appeal here between the high fantasy undead aspect and then some good low fantasy semi-realistic knight-type characters without too much flourish but enough to make them interesting - I think that's something that will appeal to a lot of people.
  5. Great collection. I'd cover that window and supplement the light other ways because UV light wreaks havoc on plastic over time! The window isn't really usable as is anyway and you would cover it in a non-damaging way to mitigate outside temp & humidity fluctuations to help your AC and to protect the collectibles.
  6. Perfect execution and great recipe, I just bought one of those bodies (Ghostbusters Plasma Gozer) for the same reason.
  7. For $299, yes please I can make the space and might get 2 if it looks as good as the H.I.S.S. For $399, let me see the unlocks first and maybe For $499+ no
  8. I think they're great. I put Krampus out last year and both out this year right next to our old nativity set and got lots of compliments - Santa reminds people of the old fashioned European style St. Nick or the old ornate porcelain figures but done with real cloth with gold accents and it just looks amazing. None of us had heard of Krampus until the figure came out but now they are both part of our Christmas tradition.
  9. I really hope those Skeletons aren't hard to get. I know it says exclusive but I hope it's not some kind of convention or extremely limited release. I definitely want at least two sets and I'm hoping we'll be able to preorder them on places like BBTS and EE. The Teela and Zoar set was "Exclusive" right? Hoping these are in that same vein. Another good option would be the "build to order" window, I just stress about missing the window of opportunity in that case because toys aren't always top of my mind and I might be on a trip or who knows so hopefully if they do that again there is at least a week long window.
  10. Now this is definitely a more interesting direction for using the GI Joe license. I really hope this does well because I would love to see re-imagining of more GI Joe characters like this instead of just slightly smaller scaled model kit versions of existing designs.
  11. On a positive note, the other retro O-ring sets and the Stinger were perfect! But, the Duke/CC set was the weakest because for some reason they made duke extra bright and give CC a "reaction" style gun that doesn't suit the figure and makes the carded figure look worse. I didn't even pick up this set on sale despite getting multiples of the others.
  12. Just opened mine yesterday. The whole set is great and those extra parts are a very appreciated surprise.
  13. I think some people are influenced by rarity such that they consciously or subconsciously disparage figures that are easy to find and cheap but I think they did a great job with Lady Jaye! I like the regular Classified and Retro version. A figures scarcity and monetary value isn't their only worth.
  14. I'm with you. I was really excited when I heard D&D figures were announced but somehow I didn't know they would be retro toon versions. I was hoping to see Hasbro would tackle beasts and monsters and adventuring archetypes (fighter, mage, etc) from all across D&D in an updated high detail modern style. I'm not that interested in specific named characters. I was thinking of things like Bugbear, Half-Orc Barbarian adventurer, Goblin/Kobold 2-pack. And of course you'd have lots of cross line appear with LOTR fans with figures like an Elf Ranger/Archer and Halfling. But as you said I am happy for those who were wishing for this! Hope these sell well and we all get what we're after.
  15. Looks great, I'm glad that only 1 of the two I ordered got canceled by Target for forgetting to "approve delays". Hopefully I can pick up one more online or in store if they are available.
  16. I have no idea who the DC character Deadman is but that figure is a work of art and for the price I couldn't resist preordering.
  17. Wow, these pictures are making me want to get more than one but I've been trying to cut back on the pre-orders. She looks incredible. I love the little section of pyramid spikes on her jacket, I fondly remember back in the day all the punks having those all up and down their jean and leather (and faux leather) jackets along with patches for bands.
  18. Does he come with that blast effect? I'll cross my fingers for yes but I don't think so. Regardless, the figure and vehicle are amazing; not just great sculpts but the various sheens (glossy/metallic armor vs more matte green snake parts) and textures (that cape!) show huge attention to detail and care. I'm really excited to get mine in hand.
  19. Simple, but perfect right down to the bare feet. Very nice.
  20. CG and Snake Eyes are already up on Pulse, might just for Pulse Premium but they are up!.
  21. That's a bargain and this thing is cool. I pre-ordered one and planned to cover up the bat emblems and use it for a dreadnok vehicle then I remembered it was 7" scale. But I'm still going to get it, I think the kids will love it.
  22. Great attention to detail, right down to the leather grain texture: The sculpt is beautiful.
  23. Well that kind of wings it back around and interests me - he'd be pretty close to modern 4" figures. The old Mattel AMP suit with figure was great and one of these is cheaper than one of those on the secondary market. I'll be interested to see a comparison between this figure and normal 4", 6" and 7" figures
