  1. You know, we always think about the figures, but what about letting them know that some accesories would be pretty cool ideas also.

     

    I have thought about (like in the MOTUC) some "weapons" packs, or in any other case an "accessory" packs, like GREEN LANTERN or SINESTRO constructs (have been thought a lot before) or new light-up LED power batteries, maybe some BATMAN's Bat-gear, Superman's Laser vision or a "super blow", The FLASH's light speed lightning, more GREEN ARROW trick arrows, HAWKMAN's medieval gear like the chain mace or the crossbow, RED TORNADO's fist cyclones and a super torso tornado, METAMORPHO's chemical consructs, FIRESTORM's nuclear blasts, DOCTOR FATE's magic spells, generic flight stands or energy blasts, et al....

     

    how about those, which ones are yours?

     

    How about some vehicles?

     

    The BATMOBILE anyone?

  2. SDCC 2010 is already over and mattel showed us wave 16 of DCUC and the GLC wave 1 for 2011, now which characters would you like Mattel to know that you desperately want in the folloiwng-up waves?

     

    THINKING ABOUT A COMPLETE SUPER POWERS LINE-UP, Mine are:

     

    SAMURAI

    BLACK VULCAN

    EL DORADO

    APACHE CHIEF (REGULAR SIZED)

    MISTER FREEZE (SUPERPOWERS)

    ATOMIC KNIGHT

    SILVER AGE METALLO

    SILVER AGE SUPERGIRL

    SILVER AGE MANHUNTER (PAUL KIRK)

    SILVER AGE BIZARRO

    SILVER AGE CATWOMAN

    REVERSE FLASH

    SILICON (UNPRODUCED SUPERPOWERS)

    QUADREX (UNPRODUCED SUPERPOWERS)

    MR. MXYXPTLK

    BLACK RACER

     

    BUILD A FIGURE:

     

    APACHE CHIEF

    EXECUTIONER (UNPRODUCED SUPERPOWERS DARKSEID MINION)

    SHOCKWAVE (BOOSTER GOLD'S CLASSIC VILLAIN)

    SWAMP THING ('NUFF SAID!)

     

    And some Old of mine, favorites of all time:

    MANHUNTER (CHASE LAWLER)

    STARMAN (WILL PAYTON)

    STARMAN (PRINCE GAVYN)

    CLAYFACE II (PRESTON PAYNE)

    FIRESTORM (MARTIN STEIN)

    FIREHAWK

    SILVER AGE ELONGATED MAN

    DOCTOR POLARIS

    CHECKMATE KNIGHT (a build-up army figure)

     

    Now how about yours?

  3. They look great. Thrust especially. Seems like we're only getting 2 'Classics' molds per Generations wave. Better than nothing, I suppose.

     

    Yes, Finally THRUST will be available at retail, at a reasonable price point. Now let's hope that DIRGE and THUNDERCRACKER also finally make the cut down the road. I hope that HASBRO continues with the RAINMAKERS also and make available again SKYWARP and RAMJET for those fans that missed them.

     

    Now, let's talk about some REALLY COOL NEW G1 based SEEKERS, like with NEW molds (IDW based), ULTRA sized, and with cool EFX. how about it uh?, anyone? please rise your "typing".

     

    Maybe for a start....

  4. Its sad, TF really arent that exciting anymore.

     

    You're right, the market is FLOODED with crappy Movie toys right now, and the excitement that TF were since the UNICRON trilogy or BEASTWARS are gone by now. And just to add a little fuel to the fire, they release only 5+ new EXCITING molds and Thousands(almost) of repaints.

     

    Its sad, really.

     

    Not even TakaraTomy are interested in the franchise either.

     

    The Animated and Movie figures do not have some sort of gimmick but they are too stylized for my taste.

     

    The Transformers Classic line, while great, lacks the assortment of figures that the other lines have.

     

     

    Indeed, those two lines go in opposite sides to the extreme. It's just that i do not like them at all, both lines do have some nice looking figures, but there are a few. and really not worth at all. IMO as a Hardcore TF Collector.

     

    I believe that what the brand does really need are a new direction, a BACK-TO-BASICS while they still can, the Masterpieces are great, so why do they only make 1 new figure every 2 years?, Almost all the TFandom LOVES G1 and all the subsequent sagas, even the Unicron Trilogy, so Why did they change so abruptely the direction of the line?. What's the idea? making them to look "REAL LIFE-LIKE"like they intend to with the movies?.

     

    May I recall that only a 30% of the Hardcore TFans likes the movies.

    So what's the deal with "half naked designed" TF?

    The appeal to kids? with so many overpriced toys out there? and to make it worst THEY ARE GOD Mo...F.... RE-PAINTS of the same toy released a MONTH BEFORE? a season before?

     

    PLEASE, FOLKS over at HASBRO make the TF a COOL LOOKING INTERESTING LINE AGAIN!!!!!

    IMO, The work that the folks over at IDW comics are doing with the new Comicbooks are really worth noticing, Don Figueroa's re-designs are COOL ENOUGH to make the property re-born again. and even whith the upcoming WAR FOR CYBERTRON videogame, they do still have a chance to redeem the TF franchise.

     

    But please, one more thought, Make them in proper sizes or scaled between them THE BEST WAY YOU CAN.

     

    How is it possible that STARWARS, GIJOE, MARVEL, DCU, MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE, HOTWHEELS, BEN10, ACTION MAN, BARBIE, et al. interact properly with scaled down and all cool stuff that have made them unique among collectors, and the TF cannot ANYMORE? How is it possible that a Fire truck is a lot bigger than a jet and a tank? that a sports car is bigger than a truck or a tank?

     

    I remember the good ol' days, 1984 G1, The Pretenders, The Powermasters, The Gestalts.....ahhhh the good ol' days.

  5. Its sad, TF really arent that exciting anymore.

     

    You're right, the market is FLOODED with crappy Movie toys right now, and the excitement that TF were since the UNICRON trilogy or BEASTWARS are gone by now. And just to add a little fuel to the fire, they release only 5+ new EXCITING molds and Thousands(almost) of repaints.

     

    Its sad, really.

     

    Not even TakaraTomy are interested in the franchise either.

  6. PLEEEEEAAASE!!!!! NO MORE F..... re-paints.

     

    Please No more. What we NEED are NEW MOLDS, or at least COHERENT re-tools.

     

    Let DRIFT BE DRIFT, and no other character, please we are ALL tired of NO NONSENSE re-paints.

     

    perial.

  7. Hasbro is well known for RE-DOING/UPDATING some concepts over the time, and when they do so, they deliver some really COOL STUFF.

     

    Just take a look to the 1995 STAR WARS 3 3/4" through the 2010 SW NEW Vintage; and from 2002 GIJOE vs. COBRA through the GIJOE 25th anniv, and Beyond 2010.

     

    They always do the same over the years, so it has crossed through my mind that WHAT IF Hasbro ever decides to RE-DO ENTIRELY the MARVEL LEGENDS 6" concept, from SQUARE ONE?.

    i.e. Back in 2001 with TOT BIZ series ONE which included CAPTAIN AMERICA, IRON MAN, HULK & TOAD. The figures were COOL ENOUGH back then, but we have to admit that they still missed some well sculpts, because of the tooling, they had "MONKEY ARMS" and in later series the figures sported the infamous "PIN HEADS".

     

    Today the 6" Super Hero figure standards are met with the 4H sculpts of the awesome MATTEL's DCUC series & MOTUC line.

    Today the MARVEL LEGENDS are (almost) gone, and the ones that we have collected over the years are not really good/cool enough; FIRST: they are not in scale even with themselves and SECOND: not in scale with their counterparts, the DCUC.

     

    Lets face it, DCUC sports the PERFECT MALE BODY for the portait of ANY SUPERHERO, (they DO always LOOK HEROIC), and on the other hand HASBRO has developed the PERFECT FEMALE BODY for the portrait of ANY SUPERHEROINE (they DO LOOK SEXY & HEROIC).

     

    So the question is, IF HASBRO EVER DECIDES TO MAKE a NEW ML figure series from square one, to met against MATTEL's DCUC, WOULD YOU -THE MARVEL LEGENDS collector- support the company?

  8. One of the laws of screen writing is: If a character is shown to be wounded in battle but slinks away and not shown to die, then the character is alive! This especially holds true in horror movies, although not the same genre as Star Wars it is all part of a basic writing process. There is no way Mace's character is dead! They have to show a body.

    exactly

     

    I agree, you have my vote of confidence.

     

    I believe that maybe ol' George will bring him back in the upcoming STARWARS live action series, I read somewhere that BOBA FETT will be on the spotlight during the series, so maybe he will face MACE WINDU (if he's alive indeed) and then have a showdown.

     

    Maybe he's the one that BOBA FETT desintegrates after all (remember when VADER asks him about "NO DISINTEGRATIONS"). With whom could BOBA FETT be so enraged to desintegrate, my bet is on MACE WINDU.

    maybe......

  9. Being MACE WINDU the second most powerful JEDI (after YODA o'course) i honestly have never thought for him to have died in that fall; i believe that the obvious choice (I would have done it, if i were to be betrayed and outnumbered in that crucial fight) was to escape. In fact it appears to me that MACE indeed JUMPS through the window, and was not pushed by the lightning storm that PALPATINE created.

     

    I remember in the CLONE WARS animated mini-series (not CGI) that MACE WINDU attacked a FEDERATION Ship and COMPLETELY destroyed it, even JUMPED too far after the explosion and landed on safe ground OK.

     

    So, With or without a hand, he still had his legs and could have landed somewhere on any building or vehicle that happened to come by. Even in EPII:ATOC, ANAKIN realized some stunts like those. so WAS IT POSSIBLE FOR HIM TO HAVE SURVIVED?, i say YES!.

     

    Now the REAL Question is: did he survived in the mind of GEORGE LUCAS?

  10. What intrigues me is that the article says "PACKS" as in "More than ONE"?

     

    So what would that mean, or better to say, WHO will they be pairing with WHOM?

     

    The comic depicts MASTERS' HE-MAN, SKELETOR, MAN-AT-ARMS, TEELA and BEAST-MAN and from DC only SUPES, so if there are going to be "PACKS" which DCUC will be in them?.

     

    Maybe:

    SKELETOR / LEX LUTHOR (obvious choice, only hope its the one from the 5-pack)

    DUNCAN / BATMAN

    TEELA / WONDER WOMAN

    BEAST-MAN / AQUAMAN or HAWKMAN or FLASH or HAL JORDAN or WHOM?!

     

    By the way, I found out the "JUSTIFICATION" for this crazy crossover; just turn to page 12 http://www.htmlcomics.com/Book/html.asp?Series_Name=Dc%20Comics%20Presents&Book_No=047&Page_Number=2&Alpha=D&Lookup=

    and read what HE-MAN tells SUPERMAN about planet EARTH.

     

    Could this be another subplot involving the DCU 52 EARTHS? ................

    .............................

    .............................

    and if that's so, well then.... I WANT THE THUNDERCATS & SILVERHAWKS BACK! #US1#

     

    DAMN! It wasn't the LUTHOR from the five pack!

     

    So, Hope they make it OK at retail, that justify more 2-packs like those ones.

     

    By the way I believe that If MATTEL ever consider making THUNDERCATS & SILVERHAWKS, the Masters body type could be used for the Thundercats & the DCUC body for the SILVERHAWKS.

     

    How about it, uh?

  11. What intrigues me is that the article says "PACKS" as in "More than ONE"?

  12. After this announcement, what could we expect about this crossover...

     

    MOTU classics at retail that could spawn a new generation of fans.(younger fans)

    MOTU COMICS (maybe DC is looking to re-gain the license)

    MOTU LAMovie (The one that has been rumored)

    MOTU TV series (a new cartoon (s)?).

     

    Too many merchandising, who knows?

     

    Just remember what happened with the GIJOE 25th anniversary figs and how they climaxed in a LAMovie. (which I enjoyed a lot).

     

    Now the BIG question is, HOW MANY CROSSOVERS HAVE THERE BEEN BETWEEN DC & MOTU?

  13. Without ANY DOUBT it has to be M.A.S.K.!

     

    The inclusion of MATT TRAKKER to the JOES mythos has been a cool one, even if we have an obscure Convention Exclusive figure like the infamous IRON GRENADIERS' GENERAL MAYHEM, that looks a lot like ol' Miles or Maximus Mayhem a.k.a. V.E.N.O.M. leaders.

     

    Maybe the rest of the V.E.N.O.M. agents could be recluted DREADNOKS. How about it, uh?

     

    It's possible, right?

     

    as for other licensing, how about the CENTURIONS?.

  14. Hi all,

     

    This is my first post here- I just wanted to share with you a sculpt I completed recently in the new GI Joe 3 3/4" tradition. I loved MASK as a kid and I was really happy to get an updated Matt Trakker figure last year. This is an update of Calhoun Burns- pilot of the Raven.

    Any comments or questions are welcome.

    xDSC05577X.jpg

     

     

    You can view the entire gallery here.

     

    Congrats man! you are a pro!

     

    One main question only, did you sculpted the GIJOE 25th Aniv. Specialist MATT TRAKKER for HASBRO?

     

    I'm sure you were, 'cause i spotted yor website and your work has been used by HASBRO (the NEW Patrol DEWBACK?), please could you share some unofficial light about possible upcoming figures from M.A.S.K.? Hope your "custom" is soon made available in any future GIJOE assortment, there are A LOT of M.A.S.K. fandom out there.

     

    By the way, The GULLIVER mask lacks the back piece that drops behinds Calhouns' head. have you noticed?

    How about some clear colored plastic "energy balls" incorpored to the mask design, like the fireblast or laser deflect that was used in the SAGA STARWARS figures fromm episode II?.

     

    Congrats man, you are indeed very talented and you have gained the recognition you deserve.

     

    And one last suggestion. Please...develop more figures like this one, OK? ##1#

  15. me too, i grabbed Sixshot the first time re-issue, but couldn´t Predaking.

     

    hope they keep re-releasing more Galaxy Force like Master Megatron (US Cybertron Galvatron) and also more G1 like Ultra Magnus and Galvatron ( I & II )

  16. Those are very cool! and BB too!, I wonder how "limited" will this series be?

     

    As far as we know there is:

    -Optimus Prime

    -Megatron

    -Bumblebee

     

    and from the game there are also:

    -Ratchet

    -Soundwave

    -Starscream

    -Omega Supreme

    -Trypticon.

     

    now who else wil we get?

    apparently thundercracker is in the game as well

     

    Hi buddy! nice to read u again!

     

    Well if that's so, i hope we could finally get AGAIN, some decent JETRONS this time in ULTRA size would be a OK scale for me (with lights and sounds); However in the game trailer you actually see ol' Starscream besides Megs and they are almost in size with each other; Even Soundwave is in the same height, just like in the old G1 anime.

     

    Now I wonder if they are to bring back OMEGA SUPREME & TRYPTICON as COLLECTIBLE TOYS (hmp!, COLLECTIBLE that IS!) then they should not be SUPREME, but like the Star Wars BMF Falcon, They should be HUGE!!!! maybe a new size, the MAXIMUM size, or anything like that, just an idea.

  17. I'm not really liking either of these.

    My only TWO complaints about these are:

     

    1- If they are made in Deluxe size (Megs & Prime) then i will ABSOLUTELY could agree with u...Otherwise i hope they are made available as ULTRA sized ones. Just like they look to be in the Video Game trailer.

     

    &

     

    2- Why In all HEAVEN, couldn't we have a 2 Hrs 30 min of all this CGI GREATNESS in the MOVIES, instead of the Craptacular Bayformers TF movie we have had so far?; Damn, even the TF:WFC trailer uses a music score from Bay's movies.

     

    Thank U, I had to let this one go.

  18. I agree that many of us are concerned about the main player and his antagonists, but think about it a little.

     

    One of the main concerns about the "first" spidey trilogy were (among others) the supporting cast.

     

    Mr Webb will have to cast some decent portrays for all the SPIDER-MAN supporting cast. J.J.JAMESON, MARY JANE, FLASH THOMPSON, FELICIA HARDY, AUNT MAY, DR. CONNORS, GWEN STACY, ROBBIE ROBERTSON, EDWARD BROCK, The OSBORNS, NED LEEDS and BETTY BRANT.

     

    How about them?

     

    and by the way, I wouldn't mind if THIS TIME, we have some/any COOL cameos from other MARVEL UNIVERSE characters, like DAREDEVIL, THE HEROES FOR HIRE, DOC STRANGE, the F4, GHOST RIDER; or why not, Bruce Banner (Mr. EDWARD NORTON), SHIELD or any other Avenger. WHY NOT.

     

    instead of the ALWAYS/FOREVER sneaky appearance of MR. MARVEL himself.

  19. If COLUMBIA PICS. exed Spidey 4, well.... Thank GOD and I make cheers for it.

     

    Although Mr. Maguire will always be SPIDER-MAN in my mind, i can also recall the AWESOME (YES, AWESOME!) Incredible HULK movie.

    If that will be the formula, then c'mon baby, bring it ON!.

     

    SPIDER-MAN needs to shake the silver screen AGAIN! like it did back in 2002.

    J.JONAH JAMESON, AUNT MAY & BETTY BRANT were wonderful portrayed by their respective performers.

    Also Mr. Alfred Molina will always be the PERFECT Doctor Octopus, and Mrs. Bryce Dallas-Howard will always be my choice for GWEN STACY and Mr. Thomas Haden Church was excellent as the SANDMAN....

    Well, all the rest is CRAP! SORRY but all the resting cast didn't appealed to me as their comic counterparts.

     

    Now I hope that if Mr. Malkovich and Miss. ANNE HATHAWAY @luv@ are considered for the new flick, then they are absolutely WELCOME.
