  1. I'm talking strictly final product action figures. Distribution issues have noting to do with anything once something is sitting on my shelf and looking cool. I won't go too far into the other lines so as to not derail things, but I think the vast majority of the Joes released so far are just bonkers-----in a good way. (I'm also not sure what you mean by 4 of them sharing the same heads.) Some issues I have personally experienced with PR: The likenesses on the unmasked heads are roughly 50/50 hit and miss. For every really good head you get (Trini), you get one that is completely botched
  2. Yeah, calling this one of the strongest lines is a reach, IMO. Personally if I were to rank 6 inch Hasbro lines I'd put GI Joe first, Star Wars, Marvel, then PR. It's riddled with QC issues. All that said, it absolutely doesn't matter because people will keep buying the MMPR related stuff no matter what and keep it going on that alone.
  3. Sign me up for this. The Aisha head sculpt looks good!
  4. Bludd starting to show up at Targets now......everyone buckle up. He's hoping I find one quick. For every exclusive I can find on my own, that's one more opportunity to save my MIB Viper as trade bait for the next Joe exclusive.
  5. Two parties to blame on this one: manufacturers for purposely making limited supply of course, but more so the mentally deficient grown adults. This is exactly like when little children behave badly and have nice things take away as a punishment. Except these are grown @$$ men. Sad, pathetic grown men. I can absolutely see it come to a point where these signs are hanging in the action figure aisles, and that's going to be a sad day.
  6. Got one on preorder, looking forward to it. Not sure yet if I'm going to sell off my Jostice League BAF version (I definitely liked Snyder's take better) or if two versions of Steppenwolf will be cool.
  7. In Space was the last incarnation of PR that I followed regularly before hanging it up. I have been buying all of the MMPR and Zeo stuff and these guys are tempting. But do I want to get sucked into another line?
  8. Right, and Wolverine will always sell for Hasbro, but they make the rest of the Marvel characters as well. I LIKE Batman, but there's so much that's just being ignored.
  9. Yikes, I came for some DC Multiverse listings and stumbled upon two pages of petty bickering and ugly name calling. Anyhow: Sign me up for Superman Rebirth. That era was just about my all-time favorite version of Superman, so I'm down with a figure. I imagine it's an easy make for Todd. Here's hoping they do a Jonathan Kent Superboy from that same era. I'm curious about the Azrreal suit Batman. It would be great if it was the 90's version but I'm betting it's a repaint of the modern one they already did.
  10. Hey if you don't like it you can always get McFarlane's DC Multiverse stuff.........oh......wait............ DC has a universe and history of characters every bit as deep as Marvel, but you wouldn't know it from the offerings from these toy companies. They only want to do Batman. They have no faith that anything else will sell.
  11. I have that Han figure and I was always using those arm shackles as ankle shackles. Of course I have seen the movie hundreds of times, I knew of the existence of his arm shackles, it just never registered with me. I immediately tracked down my figure that is on display and corrected it.
  12. It's why I can't watch these live panels where company reps take questions from the fans. Inevitably someone asks, "How come these figures aren't available to buy in stores?", and they'll say, "We are aware of the problem and we are working on making it right" or some such comment. Yeah, no thanks. I'll take a pass on being lied to directly. These big corporations do not allow problems to just go on in perpetuity, they fix them in short order. There is no "problem" on their end. Things are operating exactly as they want, both on the toy companies end and the retailer's If either of them
  13. Retroblasting just did a youtube video commenting on this: lack of availability of store exclusives and even non-exclusives. The problem goes way, way beyond just GI Joe Classified and Hasbro. You also offer a similar solution: Stop buying non-exclusives from big box retail, and I'm thinking I may start going that rout. There's a reason why Star Wars, Marvel, He-Man, GI Joe pegs are constantly empty. There's a reason why they get one case of something like Retro Mandalorian figures and never restock. They're running a racket with these adult collectibles, so much so that I'd rather buy
