  1. Don't know how news worthy this is, but I happened upon a plan-o-gram while checking my nearest Walmart. The Marvel Legends X-Men Wave is featured prominently. No mention of Captain Marvel, but there IS a lot of Captain America merchandise listed. I'm thinking this could be a clerical error and where it said Captain America it was supposed to be Captain Marvel. But who knows. In any case for any plan-o-gram to mean anything, first the store would have to get off their collective corn-chutes and actually stock. And that just isn't my Walmart's style.
  2. You know what truly sucks? I can't find Captain Marvel or Black Panther figures to save my life, and those are based off MAJOR MOTION PICTURES. This being a non-movie supporting Spider-Man comic line, I stand ZERO chance of ever seeing these.
  3. They can show me any reviews they want. That won't change the fact I'm not crazy enough to spend almost 200 bucks on a single action figure.
  4. Looks pretty cool, but I was kind of hoping the license would go to Lanard. I was hoping for a little brand continuity with their Skull Island line (plus Rampage of course). Oh well, any opportunity to snag figures of Rodan, King Ghidora, Mothra, and the capital "G" himself is a good opportunity in my book. BTW: Has it occurred to anyone that we're now coming up on our sixth Kaiju movie (not counting Meg or Power Rangers) with number seven just around the corner?
  5. While I love the current Multiverse line (now that I can find it SOMEWHAT consistently), depending on what Spin Masters rolls out, I'd be perfectly happy washing my hands of Matty for good. I mean, I know it sounds harsh, but back in the day I was as big and loyal a DCUC supporter as you could find. Of course, Mattel thanked me by taking my brand loyalty and wrapping their trash in it. New batter.

    DC Hauls

    Received my Cassie Sandsmark Wonder Girl in the mail today. WOW! I heard she was a little out of scale, but this girl is even to tall for the new Multiverse stuff. Jeez, I would expect this crap from ToyBiz 20 years ago, but its a new game now. Mattel shouldn't be half-@$$in it like this. Oh well, Spin Master, you're up.
  7. According to their website, Hasbro Toy Shop is going dark Jan. 18th and will be down till February while they overhall the site.

    DC Hauls

    First action figure of the year has been bought, and that honor goes to . . . DC Multiverse The Ray. (Technically, that honor ALSO goes to the WWE Ronda Rousey which I bought at the same time, but this IS a DC thread.) Also ordered the Rebirth Wonder Woman off BBTS, meaning I need only Vixen and Gaslight Batman to finish the wave. Man, my wallet is going to come to appreciate these truncated Multiverse series.

    DC's Batwoman

    Careful, there's a heck of a lot of road between a pilot order and a series commitment. In any case, I was just thinking the other day: "You know what we need even more than an actual BATMAN TV series? We need a TV show about a butch, tramp-stamped sexual deviant in a red fright wig." Berlanti you sick, f---ing piece of s--t!!!
  10. Seems like an awfully lucrative revenue stream for Spin Masters to just ignore. I think they'll go for it, and given their track record they'll probably do better with it than Mattel.
  11. You forgot, Robin's an a-hole, Starfire's new SJW look has been referred to as "a tranny prostitute," Hawk and Dove are powerless Batman groupies, and the producers are apparently 'shipping Beast Boy and Raven despite a massive (and illegal) age gap between the actors. Oh Berlanti, every time I think you can't get any lower...
  12. I'm pretty sure DC is looking at a "Big Picture" situation. Maybe Spin Master hasn't done much with action figures, but if you look at a list of their products, you'll see a laundry list of long-standing and extremely popular product lines. If I knew a big chunk of my revenue was dependent on toy sales, that's the kind of thing I'd be looking for. Meanwhile, a cursory glance of Mattel's DC offerings over the last several years reveals a terrible track record of criminal mismanagement from poor distribution to horrible QC, to nearly non-existent promotion (and don't even get me started on the whole subscription megillah). I gotta figure DC is about ready to turn their license over to someone who'll take it seriously.
  13. Honestly, I'm not that emotionally invested in Megaman as a franchise, as my only exposure to the character was in the '90's cartoon and his recurring role on the Captain N series years before that. I do like the look of this line though, so I will be getting it.
  14. Sounds like some of you guys aren't sure if you dislike the figures or the show. To each their own though. I personally think the figures look kinda cool, and look forward to getting them. Then again, my toy-shelf is a world where Ducktales live side-by-side with Marvel Legends, so what do I know.
