  1. I'd love to see the market research that told them this was a worthwhile move...
  2. $120 for fancy packaging?! These same figures have been released on roughly 5 occasions: with Epic Mickey figures - twice, in different types of packaging; again as singles; then as Walgreen's exclusives; and a SDCC exclusive - and despite all of these re-releases and repaints, Diamond still couldn't figure out a way to release the Recognizer, once, for fans? What makes these 3 re-releases so special? Seriously, show the property some actual respect, or give it a rest. $120 for a new package of figures released literally 3 to 5 times over is just insulting.
  3. I don't get how this is a thing? The Target run was one run; now they're promising a second run that is made-to-order, with no bottom line of how many the need to go back into production?
  4. I cannot believe this took almost a whole day to sell out. I thought it would be an instant sell out. Kudos to Super7 for making it so available to fans. So much better than these other under-a-minute sell outs, which are nothing but inconsiderate.
  5. I think the sculpt choices are hit are miss with this line and between size and cost I'm not in on it, but this figure is rad. If I were collecting this line, this figure would be a MUST have.
  6. Aside from the TREMENDOUS and warranted concerns over Walmart's reckless care with consumer product and shoddy shipping methods, their site is not designed for the kind of traffic an event like this will trigger. They botched the NECA Casey/Raph debut, and this SDCC stuff will likely be no different. Fills any sane man's heart with cursed dread, me hearties.
  7. Why couldn't NECA just do a Kickstarter or take pre-orders themselves? Why are they giving Walmart a cut of their profit? Moms and kids are NOT the ones buying this $#*! - collectors are the ones checking multiple times per day or week, collectively, that little random shelf of figures hidden away in the video game section at the back of the store to buy versions of characters from a movie that came out like 30 years ago. Collectors are the ones ferreting out the unsearchable Walmart.com item page in advance of the indeterminate release date/time and scrambling to place an order all at the
  8. I thought these were Hasbro but the tag at the top of the page where it should say "Hasbro" said "Geeknet, Inc." or something, so I wasn't sure. If I were Hasbro, I wouldn't be happy about that. I think the helmets just looks kind of plain for $120. Little detail. How is the cost justified? I think they should have gone with the Snake Eyes movie helmet. This one just kind of lacks definition. Looks like a Rubie's Halloween mask - not a collector's helmet.
  9. Glorified statues or just prototypes? It seems like there's little to no articulation here.
  10. Let's hope Walmart recognized the demand and does better with NECA Turtles than Target does, and that they've ordered more than 1 per store. I never saw that Walmart exclusive McFarlane Mortal Kombat Spawn. Walmart exclusives are hit or miss.
  11. $300 for a Cookie Monster stuffed animal? I would have preferred an actual puppet. This just seems like a higher quality version of something you could win at a carnival, but if it were a real replica, you could make it come to life like they do on the show. I'll be really shocked if this gets backed.
  12. I saw all of these at my Target last night. They look really cool, but I'm not collecting them. I only buy comic/cartoon accurate or movie accurate Joes.
  13. I picked this up at Best Buy today. The figure is more worth it than the movie. I thought the beginning was a bit rushed, and I thought that Hal would have discovered Abin Sur, rather than being dragged to him in a test-flight-pod. I kind of wanted to see how awesome Hal was before the ring picked him with some kind of actual piloting or something, anything. The rest was interesting, had some nice twists, nice gory battles, but the dialogue was on par with that of George Lucas, and what do the Green Lanterns do with Sinestro after they beat him?! Um, closure? I thought they could h
  14. Too bad one of them is sold out already though. So much for buying a full set!
