  1. Actually, some of the best likenesses I've ever seen on a figure (and I'm talking SPOOKY accurate) were done by sculptors years before face-printing or even real-scan. A lot depends on the company's original intention. Did they WANT 100% accurate actor representations, or a representation of the actual character? Don't forget likeness rights either. Could a mere human sculptor achieve an accurate likeness of Emma Watson? Absolutely, . . . but Mac would have to pay Emma for it.
  2. That's only to be expected. After all, Hasbro has resources that Mac just doesn't have access to.
  3. Interesting. If these are anything like, those Stranger Things figures, they say 7" scale, but can be fudged into a more Marvel Legends/DCUC/DCM type scale.
  4. My big take away from this set? There is now a Splinter tool.Granted, it's in a totally different style, but the important thing is, we're one step closer to having a Splinter for the hypothetical continuation of the 'toon packs.
  5. First, I never said he didn't do anything else, I said that was the one he was known for. Quick, without looking it up, tell me one non-Twilight film he's been in. Second, don't speak for me. I watch all kinds of movies. Action, adventure, martial arts, sci-fi, comedy, western, horror, thriller, coming of age, big budget, low budget, no budget, indie, foreign, mockbuster (love those), and yes, even cheesy gothic vampire romance. Just because we're on a toy website doesn't mean all our movies have ray-guns and explosions.
  6. Nope. Paramount has made it clear the entire rights megillah that's been ruining Star Trek since the whole Kelvan timeline started is still firmly in place. Basically, with the exception of Picard himself, they can't touch any characters, concepts, designs, etc. from any of the original Trek series. The most we'd probably get would be vague references to the Enterprise in name only.
  7. Lets see. Skynet sends a Terminator back in time to kill someone crucial to the future human resistance . . . again. An older, wiser Sarah Connor shows up to save the day . . . again. We're doing the chick Terminator . . . again, the liquid metal Terminator . . . again, the half-human Terminator . . . again, and possibly the older model Terminator . . . again. Yeah, I think bringing in Cameron to freshen things up was a good idea.
  8. Okay, not a bad set. Only one rerelease. I would've gotten it for Genji alone.
  9. Hate to say it, but the smart money is on MK. Thanks to Detective Pikacu and Sonic, video game properties are getting a lot of attention from Hollywood. I can't help thinking all Hollywood sees in MOTU is a played out franchise.
  10. You just made my point for me. "That's the ONE we remember him from." "He's NOT HALF BAD." ". . . AWAY FROM MAINSTREAM." Not exactly glowing accolades for an actor. Bottom line, he's got just enough name recognition to put a few butts in seats and spark a few write-ups, but not enough that they'd have to pay NAME money.
  11. Well, in all fairness, Mortal Kombat has already had a successful movie and a dopey-but-cool sequel, so it has a proven track record. It also has the virtue of being "In Production" while another MOTU movie has been a pipe-dream for just over 30 years. Wake me when He-Man actually starts rolling film, then we'll talk "theater battle."
  12. I don't know about anybody else, but I've found Prime to be the better streaming service by a long shot, WAY better than Netflix or Hulu. Of course the free 2 day shipping doesn't suck either.
  13. Well, to be fair, I'm sure if you looked past Berlanti's horrible record balancing actual plot with sodomite propaganda, the obvious man-bashing, what little plot there is being ripped directly from the CW's Birds of Prey series, and the fact the main character is one of the most blatant stereotypes I've ever seen, then this thing . . . this thing would probably still be a turkey.
  14. See, at the end of the day, what people thought of Ben Affleck didn't matter as he was an accomplished actor, writer, producer, and director: in short, an extremely creative and talented individual. Being as generous as I possibly can under the circumstances, Bob Pattinson . . . played a sparkly vampire.
