  1. I've been able to pick up 2 of the 3 of these so far. Deadman is fantastic and I'm very happy to have him. Vampire Batman I'm not as fond of, as I'm honestly having some buyer's remorse on this one. He was also my least wanted of these 3 figures. I just decided that I'd better buy him when I saw him knowing how Walmart exclusives go. I still haven't found Eradicator, but he's a definite want for me.
  2. My first thought with these were that they were cheap knockoffs of MOTU Origins figures... and then I saw that they're selling for $54.99 each!!!! Sweet mother of guacamole!!
  3. I really enjoy this line but since I don't open these figures, I had to jump off when they went to windowless packaging. I've got all of the windowed packaging figures but had to stop there since I don't intend to ever open these. My only regret is not getting Shipwreck as he was my very first Joe when I was a kid. It's a shame as I feel like the original packaging is perfect for displaying these figures. The figures that I bought exactly fill one bookcase (facing forward so you can see the figure, not sideways like books like some collectors do).
  4. I'm really loving that black suit on the Malakai Black figure. I don't collect these figures but I'd love to pick up a couple of that figure for custom. I think the only other AEW figure I've ever bought was an Ortiz that I found at Gamestop for $8 to make a custom out of. I don't watch AEW as I'm a WWE loyalist. I say that despite watching a lot of WCW and TNA Impact back in the day when the Hulkster was in both spots. Hulk was my favorite as a kid. The only way I'd probably watch AEW is if Randy Orton went there, but his career may be toast. Randy has been my favorite as an adult.
  5. I'd be ecstatic if one of the toy companies could do decent figures of the original Star Trek cast in 6" form for $24.99 each or less. These are just not worth bothering with.
  6. After seeing pics of everyone in this wave, I'm even more confident that the only one that I want is Two-Face.
  7. I actually never read any of this, but I'll certainly give the show a chance when it comes out! I've enjoyed other stuff I've read by Brubaker.
  8. I did, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was supposed to serve as a prequel to the Gotham television series for the Alfred Pennyworth character of that continuity. It was really good, but like a lot of series that get cancelled prematurely it ended on a cliffhanger that I really would have like to have seen resolved. It is basically the origin of Alfred (Alfie) and how he meets Thomas and Martha Wayne in London and their life before Gotham City. Towards the end of the 2nd season it began to introduce metahumans / powered individuals who were supposedly just starting to appear at that point in time. If you don't have expectations of it being anything similar to Batman then it was a very well written show. It started off pretty grounded and got a little crazier and more comic book like as the series went on. I would have really liked to have seen a fourth and final planned season with it ending with Thomas, Martha and Alfred all permanently relocating to Gotham. I've watched all of these shows religiously that Warner Brothers has recently cancelled: Pennyworth, Doom Patrol, Titans, Flash, Arrow, Batwoman, Legends of Tomorrow, Stargirl, etc. and I enjoyed all of them. Stupidly I also got exactly two episodes into WestWorld before they removed it from HBO Max. That pissed me off too, but that's what I get for waiting years to watch it, I guess. I'll probably just finish watching that on Tubi when it gets there.
  9. I'm excited for these, but also somewhat concerned that the line is going to go on longer than I expected. I got in on the DC Universe Classics sculpted by The Four Horsemen that was sold exclusively on mattycollector.com a decade or so ago and ended up buying every single figure they made up until they ended the line. I then ended up getting an offer for that collection that I couldn't refuse and sold it all in one shot. However I have no interest in going that deep again, but I'm also not sure I'll have the willpower to stop after I've bought everything they've done for the Masterverse line so far. I haven't bought any Origins and don't intend to. Masterverse would only be my fourth line in terms of priority behind Marvel Legends, DC Multiverse and Spawn and I tend to buy at least one of every character made in each line. I did recently quit G.I. Joe Classified though after they went to windowless packaging. I've got at least one version of every character they made in windowed packaging (including the Cobra Island / Python Patrol / Tiger Force stuff) but I decided to call it there. I just don't open those figures. That will save me some $$$, I guess.
  10. I was able to find Vampire Bats in the wild, but have seen no sign of Eradicator yet and he's the one of the two that I really want.
  11. Good! There's no reason for it not to if the new Superman movie isn't coming out until 2025.
  12. I've wanted a good Ultraman figure to add to my collection for a while now since reading the Marvel run from not too long ago, but I'm not paying $150 for one.
  13. I'm looking forward to a fresh start for the DCU. Hopefully this will properly launch the universe as it always should have been. Most of the DC movies in my lifetime have been a complete dumpster fire outside of perhaps the Nolan/Bale Batman trilogy, the Joaquin Phoenix Joker movie and the Jason Mamoa Aquaman movie. I don't think that it's realistic to believe that they could ever compete with Marvel but hopefully they at least provide a strong alternative. DC Comics certainly has an extremely strong roster of characters to work with if they're willing to go beyond just Batman and Superman. However, Warner Brothers never seems to have any vision or give anyone much of a leash to work wth, so it also won't surprise me at all if they pull the plug really quickly if the first 2 movies don't make $1 billion each. Of the projects outlined, The Authority movie is the one that I find most interesting. I've always enjoyed those comics immensely and I feel like it's likely to be the biggest step away from what has been done before. It may fail massively due to lack of character name recognition for the general public - but Gunn has had success before with another property whose characters' had very little name recognition with the general public, with the Guardians of the Galaxy. I'll certainly be rooting for success for all of these projects and the entire DCU going forward.
  14. I remember watching a couple of seasons of this show back when it was on the Syfy channel but didn't keep up on it. I've considered going back and trying to watch it again - but I've already forgotten what happened in those first couple of seasons so I'd likely have to start all the way over. Does anybody who has watched it all the way through have any recommendations as to whether it's worth it?
