Mrs. Magnet and I just came back from seeing it.

We enjoyed it, but I found that the movie was at it's best when Fury or almost anybody else was sharing a scene with Carol.  On her own, she can be a little bland.






SPOILER:




I think they need to make a life size toy/prop of the Happy Days lunch box with a tesseract

Sweet Jeebus....Modern comics piss me off so much!!  Wally West gets a new figure in his new costume....just in time to be frigging DEAD!!!  Thank you so much, "Heroes in Crisis".

Saw the price tag for all of the War of the Realms books.  $110.00 for the first month.  moon.gif

Not sure how accurate this is, but I do think DC would be making the right move concentrating on fewer titles and making them better.  Marvel needs to do so as well, to a larger scale.  War of the Realms has an unhealthy number of spin-offs.

I definitely believe in Quality over Quantity.

Totally agree about War of the Realms.  I was just checking out solits for some of that stuff.  It just goes on and on!!

At this point, DC figures are like hoping you find a hundred dollar bill on the sidewalk.  You really want it to happen, but the odds aren't likely.

That's just my personal experience.  I realize that a lot of that is because I'm looking for mostly B and C Listers, and lots of Never-Been-Dones.

-Marvel Legends:  Silver Samurai looked great.  I really liked the Quicksilver/Scarlet Witch/Magneto set

-DC Mattel/Whoever: The McFarlane announcement is very interesting

-MOTC: I don't want them, but I was happy to see Movie figures.  Those will make a lot of folks happy

-Mega Construx Heroes: Thanks for not showing anything, Mattel!

-Castlevania: These looked great, but oddly, I'm not sure if I want them

-McFarlane Star Trek: Nothing?  Dang it

-McFarlane Game of Thrones:  A few cool figures, but no characters I really want

-Surprises:  Seeing Conan at SUPER 7, and learning that they will also be doing Ninja Turtles

I’m equally really disappointed that we’re getting this Tim Drake while we still never got a proper classic version of him.

I was really excited about that ROBIN until I zoomed in on it.  It's a great sculpt, but it ain't 90s Tim Drake.

Mrs. Magnet is really excited about this.

So you guys are saying that he is definitely making Frankenstein and The WarlordWink

All joking aside, some excellent points have been made about TRU and KB no longer existing.  These are very interesting times.  How is this going to work?
11  The Collector's Life / The Pegs / Re: DC Mattel Discussion thread on: February 14, 2019, 01:53:30 pm
Maybe I'm crazy, but I'm really hoping for 20 bucks....25 at the very most.  I think that's what GAME OF THRONES and STAR TREK run at, so it's not unreasonable.  Extra heads, hands, and lots of accessories may be really cool, but I will not shell out 30+ bucks for a 6" action figure.

YMMV.
12  The Collector's Life / The Pegs / Re: DC Mattel Discussion thread on: February 12, 2019, 01:53:07 pm
This is certainly unexpected, but for some reason, I feel pretty positive.

IF a comic accurate line survives all this, I imagine we get a full on reboot.  Back to zero.  Square one.

That's what I expect.  I think it will be a brand new line starting from scratch.  They may be use bucks similar to DCUC, but they won't be the exactly the same.  As far as character selection, I haven't a clue.

I love your Anniversary ideas, but this is WB/DC we're talking about.  Who the hell knows what they have in mind!!?? ( that's a dig at them, not at you, Gard )  They seem to go out of their way to avoid logical choices, and obvious directions.

I also love the idea of all the Families you mentioned, but again....this is WB.  Just because it makes sense and would sell does NOT mean they will do it.  They're just as likely to put out a line of DC Universe 'Stretch Armstrong' type figures in 3" scale.

At least we don't have too long to wait to hear something.

The one problem I have with the Avengers films is that villains are so huge. I guess they have to be --  because a film only ever comes out every couple of years. But sometimes, I only want a B or C level villain.

Preach!!

That is exactly why I love the 2 AntMan movies.  I get that movies are big budget, huge events that are meant to be epic, but I don't always need a villain who wants to take over the galaxy, or destroy it.

It would be cool to see some new figures aimed at people that were reading comic books before the year 2000. 

It's interesting to think about would this could be, but I've learned to keep expectations low.  That said....it's nice to think that adult collectors haven't been totally abandoned.
