  1. Agree with this, there’s only so much they can do. Limited in characters, skins, etc.. and unlike fortnite or even Apex Legends (another battle royale game on the rise), Overwatch has been out for years and hasn’t introduced a vast plethora of characters in the much smaller period of time that fortnite has. I too feel this, but I attribute it to the sheer fact that there’s WAY more to collect these days and I often partake and don’t have time for Star Wars. I still love the brand, but I’ve had it for so long, I can try all these different flavors now.
  2. It’s funny, before Hasbro started the lightning collection, I had no intentions of buying power rangers. I loved them when I was a kid, but Bandai’s Line wasn’t worth it to me
  3. Kimberly is about it for me, but I’m really only interested in completing the original team and the Dino thunder team
  4. Absolutely, I wouldn’t say that’s doom and gloom at all, it’s the truth! Sometimes lines and companies get too big for their britches
  5. That whole first wave really intrigues me. That SPD dog head is so awesome
  6. I definitely don’t think that it’s a lack of creativity on your part. I think it mostly has to do with the current setup of the industry. Aside from anything Hasbro is putting out there, there’s a major lack of anything that matches the quality of legends. At retail, Hasbro’s biggest competition is themselves. Transformers, Star Wars, Marvel, Power Rangers, and Overwatch. Not many companies are doing what Hasbro is doing. Really only NECA can compare, but their brands are much more of a cult following and aren’t as appealing to the mainstream. Look down the toy aisles and you can see that most other toys are cheap. On the other hand, direct to consumer lines are pushing out even higher quality goods. The problem is, only collectors buy them. And they’re much more expensive. So as you said, only lines like fortnite and maybe NECA are even competition between at retail at this point. I mean, what else is there? Funko POPS! are big, but targeting a much different audience and price point
  7. Gotcha, that all makes sense to me. Most of us on here collect a bunch of other lines or figures, unlike yourself who really is only committed to the one line. It’d definitely be harder on someone such as yourself if they did lose the license
  8. Although with the amount of money I’m dishing out, maybe I should uncross my fingers
  9. I haven’t actually had a lightning collection figure in hand, but from photos I’ve seen I don’t mind it
  10. In recent waves, black series have upped their count. 5 or 6 a wave with all brand new figures. Maybe if lightning collection is a massive success, they’ll up their figure count per wave as well
  11. While I do think the new Nightcrawler is the best version we’ve ever had, I definitely don’t disagree about integrating lightning collection’s articulation into the rest of their lines.
  12. I mean, I still find it more laid back than almost anything else online
  13. NECA would probably have to grab even more licenses that appeal to the mainstream. TMNT is great, but Aliens and Evil Dead and that sort of thing are probably too culty to explode to the level of legends. Not to mention, NECA is a much smaller company than Hasbro
  14. Makes perfect sense to me, although I would say Star Wars is equal in how many figures you can make, simply because of the never ending plethora of background characters that people will buy
  15. I’ve had mixed experiences across similar lines. Got the SHF Dragon Ball Z Goku and the Dragon Ball Kid Goku last year and the quality of plastic was inconsistent between the two
  16. Keeping the price and quality consistent is what I want. If they can change it and not dip quality or raise price, I’ll take it
