The SuperHero genre is definitely in Overkill mode right now.

Can you imagine trying to please those people?  Then, imagine that there are dozens and dozens more, all just as angry and full of piss and vinegar.  But all with complete differences of opinion, and whopping senses of entitlement.

Also, no stores around here have ever gotten past the Goddamned Super Friends waves.

I have mixed feelings.  I really like MOTU, and a lot of the characters and elements are cool.  But a good portion of it is either silly, or just plain stupid.  It's not meant to be dark and uber serious, but it shouldn't be full-on camp, either.  Or should it??  How do you handle it?  Hollywood always thinks it knows what's best, and they screw up.  A lot.  We've already had one Godawful He-Man movie....

We all have different visions....my opinion is just one of many.  Maybe it's better if the movie never happens.  Hell....I don't even know anymore....

Thanks, GARD.

Looking back, I think I did actually know the full line-up at the time, but I was so disheartened by "This is going to be the last wave at retail" that I just plain lost hope and faith.

GARD, ya wanna hear something embarrassing?  I just recently discovered the full line-up of DCUC wave 20.  I now want Red Arrow and Hawk, who I never knew were included.  I also recently saw a DCD Red Arrow ( Roy ) that I didn't know they made.  Where the hell have I been!??

So now, if I could just get a Rebirth Jay Garrick FLASH, and a Wally Kid Flash, I'd be pretty damned happy.

Never any need to feel guilty about what you like or dislike GARD.  Hell....I have some of the weirdest taste there is.  I mean...who in blazes would buy STALKER, CRAZY QUILT, MASTER JAILER, and CALENDAR MAN!??

But above all, I've always loved variety.  Go ahead and do rehashes, but please mix in some random stuff.

For the love of God, with all the Spider-Man love, can we get a RINGMASTER??

Very interesting points, GARD.

What you said about the difference between the types of buyers made a lot of sense.  I am the exact opposite of a lot of DC collectors.  I remember over on the old DC board that was connected to the DC comics site where a lot of people only collected Superman, or Batman.  Or they only collected pre-90s era stuff, but no Golden Age, or just whatever. 

We're not an easy demographic to market to because 500 of us have 500 entirely different Wish Lists.

I had to Google Sp//dr.  I lost interest in under 5 seconds.  A new record!
11  The Collector's Life / The Pegs / Re: Happy New Year! Six weeks to New York Toy Fair! Whatdaya wanna to see!? on: January 09, 2018, 02:36:16 pm
Damn good question, Fish. think.gif

I'll be the first to admit that I could be wrong.  Maybe they do great by focusing on the Big 3.  But like I always say, I find it ironic that we had more DC variety before there were a bunch of DC TV shows and cartoons out.  Kids that never touched a comic know a lot of B List characters from 'toons and games.

But maybe B and C Listers just aren't worth bothering with?  I mean....I hate Pop music, but I'm not the demographic so it doesn't matter.  I honestly dont know anymore.  It was easier when Geek Culture wasn't mainstream.

HASBRO: Constrictor...Deathlok...Cottonmouth...Cobra...Paladin...Eel...Red Guardian, etc....

DC: How else can we do Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman?

Don't get me wrong.  ML isn't perfect, and neither was DCUC.  But you cannot deny the variety they offered.  True, Legends is doing lots of rehashes right now, but they still keep throwing curves to keep Oldsters interested.  WB, on the other hand, decided they didn't like the word 'Classic' and practically gave up.
13  The Collector's Life / The Pegs / Re: Happy New Year! Six weeks to New York Toy Fair! Whatdaya wanna to see!? on: January 08, 2018, 09:13:07 pm
Anybody interested in Lynda Carter WW, 90s TV Flash, and Val Kilmer Bats??  30 bucks a piece kind of sucks.

I wonder who else they'll do?  Reeves Superman?  Keaton Bats?  Smallville characters?
14  The Collector's Life / The Pegs / Re: Marvel Legends - Discussion thread on: January 08, 2018, 08:51:07 pm
But that's the thing, FISH.... ML pull crazy shit like COTTONMOUTH, COBRA and PALADIN out of nowhere, so they totally keep hope alive for obscure characters.  There almost always seems like there's an outside chance. 

I never completely lose hope with them.  I still half expect to walk away with CROSSFIRE and ODDBALL someday.  Haha!

CHOOCH got me thinking about the T-CATS.  Maybe some company other than S7 is better, even though it would be starting over a fourth time.  At least at retail, they would be more affordable.  I have a sneaking suspicion that with S7, it's gonna be an all-in deal where you have to buy a whole set of at least 4 outrageously priced figures, or they simply won't get done.

On another note, I really want a KID FLASH ( either Wally ) and a Rebirth Jay Garrick FLASH.  A lot.

GARD, that's a great point about the Movie Aquaman already having been released.  It's easy to imagine dozens of them peg warming after the movie comes out.
