  1. Look closer this is all new. Maybe shares some CAD files, but the details are different. Similar to MK Spawn. If he was gonna make an all new Spawn then why not make it look like the current art? I guess if you liked MK Spawn but wanted a comic styled variant then here you go! I will modify the leg bags at least. Anyway he looks great and very stoked for 2022 in the Spawnverse!
  2. Love it all - hope I can get an extra Gunslinger now without difficulty. I wanted Soulcrusher back when I saw Todd reveal his artwork way back in 2016 or early 2017 - he looks amazing!! By the way, Overtkill is the MegaFigure in the wave after this one for the poster who mentioned it. Each big figure might be getting cooler and cooler
  3. What makes you say that?? Listings show we've got Reivers, GeneStealers and Deluxe Orks coming. I'm stoked, his Space Marine might be my fave figure right now.
  4. Yeah I want Series 3 and 2 for that matter as well. But history seems to show these guys as being con-artists rater than legit businessmen. Or they just cannot bring figures to market. I'm not expecting these series unfortunately.
  5. That's interesting. I know Shocker Toys was mad, but the fact is that creators went with Toy Biz and they actually got figures. I don't think a lawsuit would hold up to be honest. As I said before, part of the problem was that Toy Biz planned on or needed for LCBH to pick up right where Marvel Legends left off and that couldn't happen. I love Image and think they have a strong fololowing, but our culture is very superficial. If it's not a movie or cartoon or on a t-shirt (most of which is stupid) then people overlook it b/c they are dumb. The truth hurts, there are good things out there if you look. I really wanted Aphrodite IX, Grendel and Vanguard. Would've loved more Cyberforce and for Diehard and Badrock to finally get made. It'd be cool if they still held the license and did some type of 'creator-choice' exclusive line.
  6. I think a lot of people of bought these, but they were overordered. Sales not meeting projections for dumbass Walmart doesn't mean they sucked. The truth is that oil and The American Dollar were a real problem and Marvel, evildoers that they've become, decided to close it all down. That's the word. The company shut down, LCBH was in the wrong place at the wrong time. However I'd love to see a McFarlane Image United line someday soon. More of a direct type line. A few years ago he made figures of shortlived new characters like Disciple, Thamuz, New Spawn etc. Now, we have a real new Spawn, Haunt a new Kirkman character, Al Simmons as a bad guy and Image United as a big story w/ new status quo. If there was ever an Image line deserving to be made, that would be it. Shocker is a total joke. I hope they don't get any more licenses. The idea behind the line is great, but they just blow. 1 series in 3 years and lotsa excuses. No signs of Wave 2. Great.
  7. YESSS!!! I agree. Wave 3 was sweet, but waves 10 and 11 are outstanding!! I hlope hunting isn't too frustrating. The stuff they are putting out right now is so good that I'd go the online route to get them fast even though I rarely do that.
  8. I've kinda ignored these posts until it seems like lately the sky is falling with the price increase..... hopefully Mattel rushes out as many new figures and sculpts as possible before it's too late. For me, it'd have to be: Dr. Midnite Hourman Sandman Allan Scott Wally West Raven Guy Gardner Kyle Rayner Heat Wave Metal Men I think most of them are a shoe-in, but right now all bets are off.
  9. Fine I'll stop reading. I'm not defending Shocker and I'm not a fan of generalizations b/c there is likely an exception, but I don't see anything constructive in just bitching about a guy and essentially not having anything new to say. I would think at this point people might be positive, but we have resolute negativity and that's a loss. So you carry on with whatever your issue about Shocker and while it's not identical to every other scathing post there is a common denomnator there. I don't even own these, but I don't get how someone can hate a toy maker like he was Hitler or Mengel or someone. I'm not sure why the hell I'm on these boards so much any way.
  10. Yeah this needs to be locked. These bad faith motives to end Shocker just seem childish and pretty lame. We get that haters don't like them, I might not either when I see their toys, so in that case just walk away. Focus on something to like. Feel positive. Or, if one really has an issue with these guys, go face-to-face with this guy. If that's not possible, get a lawyer and if that doesn't work then there probably isn't a legitimate claim against them. That's it. There is a high road here, but the incessant hate-spewing here is old and this is the one time Shocker did actually release something. I think everyone can form our own opinions. Get over it haters, the world out there has something fun for you to help forget about the past. Everyomne will be happier. Frankly, I'm kinda sick of reading these arguments from either end.
  11. Awesome! This is very encouraging news. I will buy her. Personally, I want to see more licenses in there like Top Cow, Valiant and Grendel stuff, but this is a good start. A reason to buy figures again. Never guessed Shocker would pull it off. I hope it doesn't take 5 years to get Series 2.
  12. Totally agree. If these toys are fun and we actually get a much needed small company making comic toys for the fans, does it really matter the guys making them were immature and incompetent in the past? I don't care & I don't need to hang out with the toymakers to enjoy the toys. Let it go. I think enjoying the figures is independent of where they came from barring some extreme circumstances. Maybe they are growing. That would be stellar. I'll judge them on the product they put out. I hope they continue to do so and get some interesting licenses.
  13. Well I did say he deserved the grief and stand by that. I just felt they would NEVER see release, and I was wrong there. Honestly, I don't care how much some people begrudge them or what they've done, if I feel like enjoying a Maxx figure, I'll buy one. That simple. Good for the fans is right. Now, whether or not they got over the hump and we can seriously consider collecting this line is another issue. But for certain, this is a huge leap forward. And they are our only real chance at getting some obscure comic properties so I hope they can put out.
  14. These are actually out guys! And I'm glad to eat crow, even though Shocker did deserve the grief it got. Their webiste shows the boxes and people have them with reviews. Of course people can say only like 2 sets were made or something, but they did make it. I'd like to get Maxx and will consider the females. I hope the line succeeds as I miss the small toy company and comic lines. We'll see. I think so far that only pre-orders are being processed, not sure about when (or if) TRU will get them. Point is, anyone who wanted Maxx or Kabuki can get one and they did come through.
  15. I popped in there recently and it was promising. Everything had been inverntoried and was shipping out......then 2 days later there was a delay. The shipping cartons or something aren't in. There nothing to say about this that hasn't already been said, but figured I'd share. I wish NECA made Top Cow toys or something. I don't know Shocker is even a company.
