  1. Style? Yeah, I guess you could call it that. If by "style" you mean the sense of humor of a 13 year-old trailer park stoner who's best directorial efforts thus far make Leonard Part 6 look like Citizen Kane.
  2. They wrote him out already in the same way they wrote out Jeremy Jordan, the door has been left open for return visits. I honestly don't know how/if they'll address the whole Daily Planet thing on the New Superman show. Seems to me it would skew to close to what their doing with Kara/Katco on Supergirl.
  3. Cool, I like Joel McHale. I just hope his presence doesn't mean they're doing the thing as an over-the-top comedy. I doubt they'd go that route with MK, but after what Disney has done to the MCU, it's a question I always have to ask. I also hope its actually "animated" and not CGI. I hate that crap.
  4. They're not easy pick-ups I'll give you that. I did get a little glimmer of hope on a stop at the next nearest Target this afternoon. All they had was was a single Foot 2-pack, but this made two separate Targets I've found sets in. What really helped tonight, however, was a tag affixed to the shelf.with the TMNT title and 51.99 price. It may have been marking a virtually empty corner, but its a corner that the plan-o-gram team was instructed to mark SPECIFICALLY as the official spot for the Turtles sets. At least it'll give me someplace to look when I'm hunting for B&R later. No more desperately digging through piles of Horror movie figures and fallen "Hawaiian-Shirt Hoppers." Small victories baby.
  5. I'm not even against a 1/12th Joe line per-se, (if such a thing actually happens) I just thought the irony of the situation was to great not to be noted. Another thought that just now occurs to me: IF this rumored 1/12th line Hasbro is allegedly doing to support the Snake-Eyes movie does happen, we only assume it would be some "Black Series"/"Lightning Collection' type affair. What if it turned out to be one of those 5 POA kiddie lines Hasbro releases with every MCU movie? It certainly wouldn't be the first time they released a crap-line to support a Joe-film. Just something to think about.
  6. I'm legitimately surprised this is getting as positive a buzz as it's getting. You guys realize Hasbro has already tried this three times before, all three times were stinkers. Nobody wants a new Joe-line more than me, but are we REALLY looking for a repeat of Sgt. Savage, Extreme or Sygma 6?
  7. I don't mind store exclusives provided they're distributed widely enough, and in amounts, people can find them. Finding Emma was just plain, blind doo-dah luck. I stumbled across two on a nearly empty Marvel endcap, bought one, and have yet to EVER see another. I stumbled across my first Moonstar while making an emergency stop for a replacement phone charger cord at a Walgreens on the Texas side of Texarkana, and the second at a Walgreens in some isolated one-horse town in the middle of miles and miles of corn fields. Neither place was anywhere near where I live.
  8. Much like the Bryant Walmart find of early 2019, I found myself in another action figure Shangri-La . . . and once again had to limit myself to one figure, leaving the rest to their fate. This time it was a smaller Walmart in Searcy, but you couldn't tell that by the action figure isle. What did I find? McFarlane DC figures (looked like it may have been the entire first wave, but their not my bag so I didn't give them more than a cursory glance), some kind of Joker role-play toys I assume are from Spin Masters, the entire ML Demogoblin Series minus Vulture (I grabbed Shang-Chi), the entire Super-Skrull Series sans She-Hulk, the entire run of Lanard's Alien figure sets, the new Playmates Kong of Skull Island and Destroyah figures, and the single packed figures from Mattel's WWE/MOTU line. I can't say I wanted EVERYTHING I saw, but I wanted enough that walking away with just Marvel's resident Master of Kung-Fu took more will-power than I'm usually capable of bringing to bare.
  9. Yeah, Teri was definitely in the top 3 Loises in my book. The only thing I couldn't take was when she would bust out that high-pitched whiney "Supermaaaaan" scream. Erica Durance will always be my favorite, that won't ever change. She hit that perfect balance of damsel-in-distress and balls to the wall tough ckick you need in a modern Lois. Noel Neill comes in a close second being the classic Lois, and you never forget your first (plus I have a soft-spot for red-heads). Hatcher brings up the rear. This new Lois is really coming around for me, but I'll have to see her in action before I can make a final judgement.
  10. Despite what I said, I wouldn't get my hopes to high. Just going by their scenes in the Crisis crossover, I expect Supergirl will continue to get the meat of the serious plot-lines while Superman and Lois will probably lean closer to Legends, in tone, than any of us are comfortable with. The best we can probably hope for is they take their cues from Lois and Clark, giving us another action rom/com as opposed to a bad costume sitcom. Just keep the faith.
  11. I can't help it. Just the thought of a new Superman TV show (that actually features SUPERMAN) just fills me with renewed faith in superhero TV series'. The fact Batwoman came out and proved that Berlanti CAN still do a show that doesn't suck just makes it even sweeter.
  12. Not really. He has to answer to the same people any other business does, stock-holders, shippers, retailers, factories, bean-counters, etc., maybe more since it's his name on the company.
  13. It'll be nice to see Joe back on store shelves, but I'll remain cautiously optimistic until I actually see them. G.I. Joe traveled a long and rocky road in those waning years, leaving a lot of questions for any subsequent lines. Will it be a full release or retailer exclusive (we already know Walmart doesn't like G.I. Joe). If an exclusive, will we actually be able to find it at that retailer? Will the line suck like that last movie line? Will the line be at all recognizable as the characters we know and love? Will there be some kind of vehicle presence? Vehicles have always been an important staple of Joe, if you don't make an allowance for that, what's the point? What about rumors of a Jazwares line? Is any of this actually happening? Lotta questions. Of course if any of them end in an actual return of G.I. Joe, I'll book that trip.
  14. Well keep in mind, it's only an interview. A carrot being dangled in front of your face to keep you going in the right direction. Their never gonna GIVE you the carrot, just entice you. Their never gonna make with the company secrets, it'll never give us "the inside track," we're not buddies. These interviews are just a tool to get us to buy their product, and that's anybody, Jesse Falcon, Todd McFarlane, or that guy who used to do interviews for Mattel. No slight against anybody, that's just part of the job description. Let's face it, if there were still Saturday morning cartoons, and advertisements weren't so expensive, we'd never hear from these guys.
  15. Not a fan of Spawn or the scale in general, so I don't really care one way or the other, but aren't touting a new Spawn line and vague promises of "improved" articulation things McFarlane has said a hundred times over the years? Just saying.
