  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.
  16. In their defense we might actually hit 10 pages of complaining before a new excuse. Shocker still has a few weeks to think up why they aren't coming in April. I don't think anyone's paying attention any longer; not for the purpose of wanting the toys at least.
  17. That's how I feel. Granted there are positives I choose to focus on too, but otther than a variant Mantis, I'm not sure any of the Wave 9 figures are new. I love the DCUC figures I have, but no way are they better than Legends. Not yet at least. Remember, Mattel has released nearly twice as many waves as Toy Biz did in its first year. If Mattel does add more body types, then look out! If they make a couple new bodies for Wally Flash or other modern heroes now that the satellite JLA is nearly done I think DCUC could easily go down as the best yet. But there's no evidence this will be the case. I hope they can do it though. Marvel Legends had so many amazing figures. Each one could look great alone, but then as a group they looked even cooler with all the different shapes and sizes. A few figures were not winners or out of scale, but that's the price of being innovative and taking chances. DC's figures are pretty much bulletproof. Proportions and sculpt are all top notch, but it's too homogenous for me right now. I'm gonna revisit it in another year or two and see what they do.
  18. me too! He really needs to answer for this duplicity and borderline criminal behavior
  19. Liars. I'm sick of them. Liars are losersin my book. Stringing people along and not holding themselves accountable is despicable. Perhaps they're not high-minded enough to even know this is wrong. I guess there are still a lot of people who don't know about them. They probably ripped off people at NYCC too.
  20. I wonder if they had any signs stating they don't actually sell anything. If this line was ever gonna come out I think they would've had them there this weekend. Did anyone get into it with them? About time they face up to not making figures.
  21. There are many smaller companies out there that we don't have to feel bad about supporting. Onell Design Suckadelic Atomic Mushroom 3A Toys There are probably a hundred more that I can't remember or don't know about. Cool. I'll keep them in mind. Didn't know about them and like seeing the smaller companies trying make a name.
  22. Threads screaming for Shocker's head are being deleted? I like the idea of 'soft deletion' since evidence will still exist if needed that Shocker has a history of burning people. I wish they could be an honest company and just make some toys. Otherwise I guess they will fade away; these threads are really all there is to remind us of them sadly. I also don't like how everything I read about them is so juvenile and unprofessional. I'm not sure I understand how they are even a company. grrr. I feel bad saying negative things b/c they are the little guy and I did want them to suceed, but enough is enough.
  23. They really lose credibility using The Chinese New Year as an excuse, especially since it occurs after they claimed the series shipped. And then we're to blame for retailers cancelling?? Oh well. I'd like to give them the benefit of the doubt and see what's up in March, but we've been down that road, what now, 5 times already? Still, it's only 4-5 weeks from now. Curious what will happen then... I think that when Wizard and ToyFare, 2 well read mags in our genre both promoted this line, Shocker should have went overtime to get these out on time. No excuses. Other toy companies get product out. Why not them? I'm not totally convinced these guys are scammers. I don't who's left to buy what they are selling, literally and figuratively. They just seem incapable of closing the deal and I'm saying that in the nicest possible way. Too bad. Maybe we'll all be in for a surprise next month!
  24. WOW!! So, how come other companies are getting product out now? The Chinese New Year isn't affecting them. At least this is entertaining. Do the creators of these characters follow all the delays and excuses? I'm sure they'll pull out soon and that will be the reason for the next cancellation/postponement. Shocker wasn't even on the NYCC list?? These guys don't do bad marketing though. Wizard and Toyfare as well another toy publication were hyping the line. I'm sure people planned on or already ordered and exclusive. If these guys were just honest and competent they would've delivered and had been profitable. They could've been respectable and earned repeat business as well to grow their company. I wonder what their overall goal is, b/c it isn't toy business. Must be a front for something or way to earn capital for something else. I mean, people actually knew about IS, they won't forget this. Oh, and they really should get an editor who can spell correctly.
  25. @grumpy@ Man. I've only loosely followed this line's history and thought Shocker to be dubious at best, but will now wait and see what their excuse is in March. If they aren't out then I'd like to see someone make these guys answer for their ripoff practices. They picked up 2 new distributors, probably b/c they don't know their track record and are the only ones who will do business now. Why else would Diamond drop them? That's gotta be a red flag. At least they've made it to packaging stages. Ugh...I'd laugh if I didn't want these.
