  1. Generic suit, generic origin, there isn't much there TO care about. I also agree on Black Lightning increasing his footprint in the shared Arrowverse. If nothing else, address the fact that in their own universes Black Lightning and Superman have operated for years, yet in the mainstream Arrowverse, metahumans weren't even considered a thing until after the Flash pilot. I mean Barry's whole backstory was his search for proof of the "Impossible."
  2. You are NOT wrong. I just can't bring myself to pull the trigger on it right now. Doesn't help that the non-Bat characters are a little harder to come by in these parts. That being said, this IS the kind of line I've been waiting for.
  3. That's all I'm saying. Dedicate the bread-n-butter line to the characters as we know them, and save the fun house mirror stuff for a Signature Series type thing. That way we could have our mainstream Wonder Woman and Green Lanterns and Todd could still leave his unique mark on the line.
  4. Okay, I get it. DCUC, like Marvel Legends, was a miracle of rare device. We won't see an open-ended toyline devoted to the entirety of the DC Universe again. Still, I have to wonder if these weird designs and anemic character selection are what DC had in mind when they threw Daddy Spawn the license.
  5. Wow, Chris Conrad? I loved him on Young Hercules. Almost makes me regret not watching this steaming pile of Gunn-droppings.
  6. Throw in "A Charlie Brown Christmas," and a marathon of the Patrick Stewart version of A Christmas Carol, Ernest Saves Christmas, and Christmas Vacation and you have my entire Christmas watch-list right there. (And after this year, I NEED it.) Of course, they're not running Charlie Brown on the networks this year, which makes garbage like this all the more infuriating.
  7. Pinhead and Tunneler. You'd have to see the movies. (Though the first and second are really the only films where they're actually "bad-guys").
  8. Same here. The other of course being I can't find the Neca figures TOO collect . . . at least not the ones I want. . . . but I'm not bitter.
  9. What I say now, I say as a full-on, long-time Puppet Master fan: Neca stop screwing around. If you have enough time and funding to do figures for a 30+ year old straight to video horror franchise, then you have the time and money to get those Neca/Target TMNTs out so people can find them. And no more of that "we're working on the issue" crap. That don't fly for Pelosi, and it certainly don't fly for you.
  10. I just got this wild and crazy idea. Instead of Neca spending millions making figures NOBODY WANTS, what if they actually put some REAL effort into distributing the few figures they make that collectors DO want! Isn't that zany?
  11. Got my pre orders for the Andros vs. Astronema set as well as King Sphinx and Pumpkin Rapper in. Kinda wish they had gone with Astronema's post-cyborg red-head look. Would've made the set a perfect representation of the Countdown to Destruction two-parter. Still consider that to be some of the finest TV EVER.
  12. Typical. They pile on the usual garbage (douche-comedy, bigotry, counter culture propagandizing, and I don't even wanna know what they do to Superman) up front, and hold back Stargirl till AT LEAST Summer '21. So it isn't a total, dumpster fire though, at least Legends is being held back to.
  13. It's really a shame, in their entire 82 year history, DC never made any other characters besides Batman that MacFarlane could make into action figures. Oh, well, at least we'll get gold Batman.
  14. Give me a 1/12th line. I've gone farther to collect the Neca/Target TMNTs than I ever thought I would for ANY line, but if Playmates did another 6" line, I'd drop Neca in an instant.
  15. Lots of Rocksteady and Bebop sets, and even a Leonardo vs. Shredder set from WAAAY back in series 1. I don't know if Neca was playing a sadistic joke or the manager found some stocker's secret stash.
  16. The suit is an improvement, though the hair is kinda ridiculous, but I see it as a mute point. I'm still convinced the CW is quietly pulling a CBS and liquidating their superhero shows. I figure Legends will be next with Batwoman or Black Lightning following quickly, if not simultaneously. As the new flagship, I see Flash staying just long enough to turn out the lights. Hopefully, being a much better series AND playing a lot farther into the CW's wheelhouse (pretty young people doing pretty young people things) will allow Stargirl to survive the Arrowpocalypse.
  17. See, that's exactly the problem, in today's toy industry you may have one license divvied up among as many as five or six companies. A MASTER license means nothing anymore. It muddies the waters. You literally have licenses competing with THEMSELVES.
  18. Fine by me, while I'm no fan of "gender-bending" I've always been a fan of strong female characters. Although, not so much the Ripley" archetype. It seems like since Aliens EVERY strong female character has had to be a man-hating, gun-toting mesomorph suffering from a monster case oh HPS. Don't even get me started on the mess Xena made either. I much prefer the Erica Durance as Lois Lane type. Can shoot, fight and banter with the best of them, but not to such a level that she doesn't need a hero once in a while.
  19. Kinda sad. I mean Neca and Super 7 are cleaning up with Turtles (even though both are doing a half-@$$ed job of distributing them) and Playmates, the master toy license holder, is left limping along on these "gimmick" sets until the next incarnation of Turtles rolls around. Just two bad this dumpster fire of a year has seen production of . . . everything delayed.
  20. Because it's Hollywood, and for some reason, the bean-counters love the way things like "From the man who brought you Deadpool and Logan," look scrawled across a print-ad.
  21. The more I think about it, with the current state of sociopolitical affairs in the real world, it would be a great time to revisit the Galactica 1980 concept. Obviously not the network mandated "Super-Scouts" angle, but Larson's original concept. Galactica finds Earth, but instead of a promised land that will deliver them from their enemies and give them a new home, they instead find modern day Earth. A technologically inferior society to caught up in its own issues to be any help, where the Galactica and her people are no more welcomed than the Cylons they'd now have to defend the planet from
