1  The Collector's Life / The Pegs / Re: SDCC 2019: Six weeks out. Any thoughts? on: June 17, 2019, 12:12:42 am
I'm really curious to see what McFarlane Toys will do with DC.  It's probably too soon to see any prototypes, but maybe they'll have some concept art.

It's been said before....they can always drop the pentagram, and simply label him "Damian Helstrom" on the bubble card.  Easy Peasy.

The storage thing is a very solid selling point.  Thumbs Up

Just compare having a large collection of vinyl records and comic books to owning the exact same stuff all digital.

I'm not even a Son of Satan fan, but I would love a figure of him.  He doesn't have to have the pentagram.

I'm actually going to do a little digital.  I never thought I would, but after checking the prices of certain back issues, digital is a lot cheaper.

I'm really looking forward to this, now.

Mrs. Magnet and I loved it from beginning to end.  It completely embraced it's kooky Comic-Booky-ness.

The best part was when she looked at me right after the Arthur-gets-the-trident scene and she whispered "Did you get chills?"

Remove Zach Snyder and look what can happen!

I really do hope he gets to Warlord, Man-Bat, Creeper, Frankenstein, Swamp Thing, and the rest, but DC is ramping up its TV and movie production so there will be lots of live action figures.  Comic figures may take a back seat.

Entirely possible.  Like I've said, due to my own personal tastes, I've been let down by DC/WB time and time again.  Todd may end up putting out some truly incredible Movie figures, but I don't want Movie, TV, or Video Game crap.  Not even if it was free. 

Nevertheless, I guess it will be interesting to see where this goes.

If Gard is right ( no reason to think he's not ) and nobody else wanted the DC license, I would think he has a lot of leeway.  That fact, combined with Todd's love of Fantasy and Monster characters should lead to good things. 

But at the same time, if I had a nickel for every time I misjudged DC/WBs actions....I'd be rich.

I'd love to see Teen Titans handled properly -- Mattel really effed that up -- despite giving us a few good Titans.

QFT

I would think that stuff like Warlord and Creeper would be right up Todd's alley.

Yaayy!!  But again....I'm going in with no expectations, no Wish List, no hope. 
11  The Collector's Life / The Pegs / Re: The DC/McFarlane thread. on: March 29, 2019, 08:21:04 pm
Sweet Jeebus.  I would die if he made WARLORD and CLAW!

I love how non-mainstream that list is.  That is a LOT of visually interesting characters.
12  The Collector's Life / The Pegs / Re: The DC/McFarlane thread. on: March 27, 2019, 10:04:38 pm
My thing has never been articulation.  14-16 POA is fine for me.  I'm more a sculpt guy.  I want a great likeness, proper scaling and a WIDE VARIETY.  I'll never understand the people who follow DCD/DCC and keep buying the same 25 characters over and over again.  Cannot do it.  But imagine 50 or 60 new comic accurate figures a year priced out at around $13.99.  Maybe a pipe dream, but I think it would work.

I am totally with you on articulation.  Hell....I'm even fine with 9 or 10!  ( Straight legs w/ un-articulated knees ARE a pet peeve, however )  But yes, a line with 12-16 POAs at 15 bucks would be great.  Actually, that's what I would hope for more than anything!

I can totally understand having several figures of the same character, but at the same time, variety is the spice of life!!  Sure, I have several BATMANs, but the true gems of my collection are figures like KILLER MOTH, VIGILANTE, MANHUNTER Paul Kirk, DEADSHOT, and DEATHSTROKE.

And how about a Grell styled Warlord?  Just because.  Thumbs Up

Yeah, he'll obviously have a certain quota to fill.  It's what he does with the 'open' slots that interests me.

If I can get a big, chunky, sleeveless marching-band-coat Frankenstein and a Classic Warlord out of this, everything will have been worth it.  The trifecta would include a Camelot 3000 King Arthur, but there's no way in Hell I'm that lucky.
14  The Collector's Life / The Pegs / Re: The DC/McFarlane thread. on: March 27, 2019, 12:22:04 am
Todd liking Fantasy and Monster type characters is a definite plus, but how many will he get to make?  Will they sell?  Will they be 30 bucks a piece?

At this point, I won't dare hope.  There's no point in a Wish List.  Sure....I have to take some of the blame for having the particular taste that I do, but in the end, figures ain't cheap, and I will buy only what interests me, be it Bronze Age, 90s era, or Modern Age.

If Todd puts out a character or two that I want, of course I would buy them.   There's no question that any plans he has are probably worlds apart from Mattel's.
15  The Collector's Life / The Pegs / Re: The DC/McFarlane thread. on: March 26, 2019, 08:46:41 pm
I guess my DC figure collecting days are done.  I'm at peace with it.

I would love for Todd to make Warlord and Frankenstein, but DC stands for Disappointing Collectors.  My hope has been laid to rest.  I've been hopeful for the past 5+ years, and it's lead nowhere.

There's other stuff to collect, so it's time to move on.
