  1. Even that isn't great. Sure, there are always peg-warmers, but the current Shang-Chi wave is the first time in quite a while I've been able to consistently find a Marvel line. Of course, that's only because it's pushing a movie. Once the next non-movie wave hits, forget it.
  2. See, that's what I can't figure. By putting the least amount of effort possible into the line, Hasbro is not only allowing unscrupulous third parties (Etailers, scalpers, etc.) to profit from THEIR work, but they're also poisoning their own well. The more trouble we have finding the figures, the more bad-will is built up. Wanna know what that does to a line? Check out the numbers on the various Star Wars lines.
  3. COOL! They're finally getting around to doing some Batman figures.
  4. It's real easy to laugh off a couple bucks when you get comp toys in exchange for low-rent reviews.
  5. So the writer of the episode has been cast as the new superhero? Interesting way to secure acting work. Not sure I'll watch the episode, but I gotta say I approve of the casting.
  6. I've been lucky so far, in that the only QC issue I've suffered Turtle-wise was a broken nunchuk. That being said, the official statistics are about 1/3 of all Neca products sold are reported with "Serious" QC issues (joint breakage, etc.). Given Neca's cavalier attitude toward these issues, I'd say a little concern is warranted.
  7. Absolutely! Half of what I've collected from the line has been from Ebay. It's not that I'm fed up with the line, or Neca, or Target; like I said, I've gotten more or less all the characters I considered "must-have." You gotta choose your battles, and at the moment, I'm cutting back on this one.
  8. The last season kinda jump the rails a bit, but I'm still looking forward to this one.
  9. Only problem with Neca pre-orders is paying up-front. Plus, I don't like that "All Says are Final" caveat either. Definitely not what you wanna hear from a toy company who LITERALLY defines themselves as a producer of "Wholesale Non-Durable Goods."
  10. This doesn't bother me for two reasons: 1. Of all the TMNT characters, there are only a couple I absolutely HATE! Those would be the Punk Frogs . . . I'm not even sure why, there's no real reason. I just despise the characters. Always have. 2. I've got the Turtles, April, Casey, Splinter, Shredder Krang, Bebop, Rocksteady, Baxter, a couple Foot Soldiers, and even a few Triceratons; that's MORE than enough for me. Not saying I'm cutting the line off completely, if I should happen to stumble upon a set at Target sometime, I'll consider getting it. Otherwise, life is to short to waste i
  11. I'm sorry to hear that. I'm speaking English, using relatively small words, I don't know what more help I can give you. Maybe some Muppets with flash cards? Most of Pulse's Joes are sold out (that means they don't have any more). BBTS charges a mark up (that means they add extra money to the price), on top of tax and shipping. That's where I'm coming from Charlie Brown.
  12. Oh, I see your mistake. I do my toy shopping in a little town I like to call Reality. You may have heard of it, it's the place where if you CAN find them on those sites Classifieds are either marked up to a point where it's no longer worth it, OR they sell out in five minutes.
  13. It's a Target issue that I can't find these at Walmart? Wow, talk about influence!
