  1. I hope so, although they seem to be on an Age of Apocalypse kick. Yes, still 90’s, but 616 teams we still want to compete
  2. Exactly where my head was going. I’m not sure if F4 is popular enough for people to get all 4, but I sure as hell would
  3. The reasoning makes total sense. I only chose 60’s because those early days of the Comics with F4 and Spidey are so awesome to me. I tent to collect more 70/80/90(x-men), but I’d love to see more of a focus on the 60’s one of these days
  4. I’m in my early 20’s right now and boy do I wish I connected with the current run of comics right now but nope. I definitely gravitate towards the stuff that predates me. Maybe in some time
  5. I know a lot of people want a Robbie Reyes and his car, but I’m not sure if Hasbro is willing to do that large. If they are, I want a spider-mobile just because it’s ridiculous. It’d also be cool to see the fantasticar, probably as a BAV.
  6. There was a lot of great in the 90’s and A LOT of not so great
  7. And with as tight of a grip Hasbro has, that’s probably not super likely
  8. They are miles beyond anything Mattel has put out, maybe ever. Aside from the hip joints, which are a unique design with the intent in hiding articulation, they have the same points of artucualtion that a standard SH Figuarts Figure has. Comparing the skull trooper from the fortnite line, and the saiyan raised on earth Goku Figure from the DBZ SHF Line, the only difference in POA aside from the hips, are the ability extend the torso joint. And from what I’ve seen, the joints are intended to be removable. Or, rather, they are on short pegs so that any crazy posing doesn’t result in breakage, much like the Figuarts line. With that being said, they still don’t have comparable range of motion to SHF or to legends. There are 2 reasons for this. The 1st is the butterfly joints at the shoulders. They do not function as well as Hasbro’s. Honestly, even the SHF butterfly joints don’t function as well. I think Hasbro has the best butterfly joints on the market, or at least anything under the $100 price range. The 2nd issue is the hips I mentioned earlier. They hide a lot of gappage and help to make the crotch look natural, which works in that regard, but you can’t spread the legs far enough apart to get a proper super hero squat or a crawl. They look more like real people trying to squat.
  9. I think I have 8 Figuarts and 1 Mafex over the course of many years. But $20-$30 figures are my bread and butter. No way I could make my collection exclusively imports
  10. It seems that they want to finish the 90’s off first, although the outback dazzler was a nice surprise
  11. That’s a good point, almost makes me want to change my answer
  12. Yeah that makes sense. Modern stuff is like a fad almost. Once it’s gone, the next new thing is all the rage. But that old stuff will always be in style
  13. It’s especially hard for me in deciding between the 60’s and 70’s. I love the ORIGINALS, but the 70’s introduced many characters so it’s a tough one... and I’m the one who posed the question and I still feel that way 😂
  14. Personally, I’m partial to the 60’s. The originals. Although, I think we’ve all been on a 90’s kick recently
  15. They’d create a separate line but they’d be in the same scale and style. But this is hypothetical obviously
  16. I have faith in them, I just know next to nothing about the eternals
  17. Granted, that’s not saying too much, the internet being the way it is, but it’s better than anything on Facebook or twitter, that’s for sure
  18. Right, I think that and we need to see what else they can do outside of fortnite in my opinion. Because even if they don’t do anything as popular, they can still better themselves by learning from other brands.
  19. I completely understand this. NECA and Mezco put a lot of time and ‘love’ Into each piece (for the most part), and of they were to compete with Hasbro, the need to push out more and more product at a faster rate would be detrimental to the companies, especially to NECA, whom is a bit more independent and faces a bit more of the problems associated with figures (QC issues, breakage, etc.) then Mezco does. I 100% agree with you on Mafex. I think they are on par with SHF, but not for $40+ more. I’m fine spending $50-$75 on an import I find it worth the price, but some of them don’t really live up to that price point. Not to mention, they are seldom found at retail. Yup...but I do agree with you on their Jurassic World line. I only buy figures from the Legacy Collection, but I’ll be damned if I said I didn’t love to see good dinosaur toys filling up the aisels. And as far as you say with McFarlane, I think we need more time to see what it is they do. DC is up in the air scale wise, and so far, they have 7” scale lines going on (Harry Potter, Mortal Kombat, Fortnite, My Hero Academia, as well as 6” lines (Game of Thrones, Call of Duty). You say they are yet to prove themselves the king of the 1/12 scale, but maybe they’re trying to compete with the 7” scale and dominate that market. And as far as Todd goes, it seems he has been loosening his grip over creativity amongst his brands. Jazzwares. I have yet to pick one of them up, because I really really really like what McFarlane is doing and I want to support them. But damn I’m tempted to every time I see one. I think that you could be right there, but I think that we’d have to see what more they could do with a different brand. It seems like Epic Games has a lot of control over their product (Fortnite). I would wager that they had a mandate for hyper articulation. I wonder if someone in the company is a big collector. I don’t think McFarlane would’ve dove head first into hyper articulation were it not for their fortnite success. So if Jazzwares does the same with another brand like Apex Legends or any other hot brand and we see the same success and quality, then you may be right.”
