Never had any of the Masters Of The Universe toys but I did like the highly detailed and articulated look of them. I wanted Hasbro to produce an equally highly detailed and articulated range of toys based on Transformers Pretenders outer shells from the 1980s. Although they wouldn't be Pretenders with an inner transformable robot and characters like Thunderwing would have vehicle kibble but would not be able to transform.

Still sad that Mattel didn't even take Neca up on the offer to continue the series. Supposedly, NECA initially tried to get Mattel to license the line (with Mattel's name still on it), but had to settle on "Staticion figures "

@  Dracula : (26 June 2017 - 08:04 PM)

every non-Skeletor or He-Man was like winning a battle

@  Dracula : (26 June 2017 - 08:04 PM)

it was just such a difficult line to collect!

@  Dracula : (26 June 2017 - 08:04 PM)

I still have all my 2002 MOTU figures and even though they're usually in storage I don't think I could bear to part with them

@  Echowarrior : (26 June 2017 - 08:02 PM)

Same here. The show that went with it was surprisingly good.

@  RichardT1977 : (26 June 2017 - 08:01 PM)

I totally agree with you about 2002 MotU though.

@  Rycochet : (26 June 2017 - 06:50 PM)

Because people want some approximation of the look and feel of the vintage console and playing experience? It's not like the Mini-Snes is being produced instead of these games being released on the switch VC, that'll happen eventually anyway

@  RichardT1977 : (26 June 2017 - 06:39 PM)

Sega did it with some of their Genesis titles for the PS3 and XBox 360, and Midway did the same. Several times.

@  RichardT1977 : (26 June 2017 - 06:39 PM)

Instead of making classic consoles with classic games built in, why not release those games in classic sets for the Switch?

@  Rycochet : (26 June 2017 - 06:25 PM)

The fate of 2002 MOTU still makes me sad, I loved that line.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 June 2017 - 05:59 PM)

Bah. There are many many toys rarer than Movieverse toys. Any character that wasn't He-Man or Skeletor for instance! :)

@  Paladin : (26 June 2017 - 05:16 PM)

Nintendo consoles are the only things rarer than new waves of Movieverse toys.

@  TM2-Megatron : (26 June 2017 - 03:48 PM)

Nintendo claims they'll be producing "significantly more" units of the SNES, so maybe there's a chance. It'd be better this time if they just took pre-orders, and based their production on that

@  Dracula : (26 June 2017 - 03:46 PM)

They're clogging shelves here, which is odd. I expected the Generations toys to be somewhat cut down in favor of movie stuff.

@  Pennpenn : (26 June 2017 - 08:11 AM)

I dunno, I got a bunch of "Blitzwing and Octone cosplaying as Megatron and Optimus Prime" in my local TRU, does that help?

@  Paladin : (26 June 2017 - 07:52 AM)

so will TitanReturns Blitzwing & Octone ever actually come out or have they just vanished into neverland?

Actually, on the subject of TLK toys, the voyager Nitro Zues or whatver looks pretty good. If I see it cheap I might give it to the Thunderwing head.

Im shocked that no one has talked bout this:

 

 

If you haven't already been bombarded by this news, where have you been for the past 12 hours!?

Social media has exploded overnight with comments and tweets about Paul Feig's plans for a new female centric Ghostbusters movie, spurred on by announcements made by Sony Pictures' official social media accounts. Entertainment Weekly also has an interview with the would-be Director where he discusses his vision for a new Ghostbusters movie including rebooting the whole franchise in a completely different universe with female actresses taking the lead. The news also includes the hiring of The Heat's writer Katie Dipplod to work on the script.

Fans have been raising their concerns on social media, such as the Ghostbusters Fans Facebook page and Twitter. Before everyone gets up in arms about this movie, everyone needs to remember this important fact. We have been to this point in "Ghostbusters 3" development several times. It was only a few years ago now that Etan Cohen was hired as the writer with Ivan Reitman directing. A few years before that, it was Lee Eisenberg & Gene Stupnitsky. And for a decade before that, Dan Aykroyd was certain he had the best script for a new Ghostbusters movie.

Before jumping to rash decisions and making a bunch of ignorant comments, let's consider for a second that this doesn't actually put us any closer to a new Ghostbusters movie than we have been before. It might be fun to think about the idea, or dismiss it entirely, but whatever does come out of it will be a positive change for the Ghostbusters franchise.

 

 

From Gbfans.com

 

Seriously, this is devistating. Two movies and an awesome videogame: gone, never happened. Dr. Peter Venkman, Dr. Egon Spengler, and Dr. Ray Stant and Winston Zeddmore: never existed, which means also no unlicenced nuclear accelerator or traps or pke meter.

 

Star Ernie Hudson had this to say:

 

 

“I heard it was going to be a total reboot, and that it would have nothing to do with the other two movies. If it has nothing to do with the other two movies, and it’s all female, then why are you calling it Ghostbusters?” Hudson said, echoing a lot of fans’ opinions we’ve heard this week. But lest he be accused of also echoing a lot of fans’ opinions that other fans wish they would stop expressing, because they’re usually followed by a bunch of sexist bulljive, Hudson made it clear it’s not females he has problem with, per se. In fact, he loves females.

“I love females. I hope that if they go that way at least they’ll be funny, and if they’re not funny at least hopefully it’ll be sexy,” Hudson said of this film starring women who, if they can’t make us laugh, maybe they can work that proton pack realllll nice. Ooh yeah, trap those ectoplasmic entities, stick them in the containment system, set your entry grid, and neutronize your field like the EPA and your momma told you not to, girl. “I love the idea of including women, I think that’s great,” Hudson adds, graciously.

 

 

So am I wrong for being upset?

I don't see why it HAS to be a complete reboot, but I totally support the idea of a female cast. Imagine a bunch of female scientists and psychologists battling the supernatural? Yes, please.

The only thing I'm against is restarting the universe, but since we'll never have the original cast back together I love the all girl cast. BUT I hate that sexy ghost logo you included in the post. Not needed.

I have no faith in Hollywood to treat an all-female cast with dignity.  But I like the idea.

 

Reboot is meh.  I mean, they can't take the original movie away from us, much like New Star Trek can't ever really replace Old Star Trek.  So if they want to do a fresh start, I have no issue with it.

 

But, you know, the sexy ghost image pretty much spells out why that would be a disaster.  Not because it's a bad idea, but because men still think with their dicks.

 

Also, way to keep it classy there, Hudson.  Way to keep it classy.  *facepalm*

JUst out of curiousity, why?

 

And before anybody jumps to any conclusions, I am not against lady busters. We've had em before. In Real Ghostbusters, Extreme Ghostbusters, and the ongoing IDW comics all had lady busters picking up the wand. Janine, Kyle and Agent Melanie Ortiz were all capable busters. When the director who had done the Movie Bridemaids and the heat talk bout all female busters, this is what I think of:

 

MV5BMTIyMzU4OTE4OF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwNTk2..

 

Melissa McCarty is not someone I wanna see in a jumpsuit.

 

Kristian Wiig I can deal with. When I think of female ghostbuster, I think of Emma Stone, Eliza Dushku, someone who is a strong female.

It's the reboot thing that bugs me more than anything.

 

No problem with the females, though something about all four of them being women just feels like stunt casting to me. Unless they're just doing a full Rule 63 reboot, and we're seeing Raye Stantz, Petra Venkman, Winnie Zeddemore, and Egonia Spengler, with John Melnitz taking calls and Louise Tully keeping books. Then I can totally get behind that.

 

But maybe I'm just partial to the New Ghostbusters comic with Janine, Kylie, Melanie, and Ron.

 

In the end, I'm not pleased with the news of ditching the old canon, but I'll wait and see how this goes and just judge it on its own merit.

Put me in the camp who has no problem with the idea of an all lady Ghostbusters cast, but I'm not so down with the idea of them rebooting the universe. Especially when the existing canon can absolutely accept an all-female team, be it in another city or as a "next generation" type thing.

Oh, Ernie. Good grief.

 

It's hard to believe this film will ever actually exist. If it does... well, why bother throwing out the first two? It's a hundred years later, you don't need a full reboot to justify the new cast. Maybe open with a nice tribute to Harold Ramis and then let the old guys get out of the way while the new bunch get going.

Make it Chicago based, and have these women come into it on their own. They can come across the original team's research while looking up their own stuff. You can even do a meet up with one of the old guard to get that in there, but these charactets should have their own story to play out. It's the only way it'll stand the test of time in its own right.

I'm in with the folks who don't understand the need for the reboot. Given how old the original cast has gotten, and that some of them have passed, how hard would it be to rip of the series intro to extreme ghostbusters, and just have the originals move on and bring in the new blood.

 

And the extended franchise already has lots of strong women characters, old and new. Just don't make it an hour an a half of pointless T&A and sexist uniforms.

You know what? I like the idea, if its set in the old universe, they'll have all the internet stuff to get them started, along with a few "hacked" proton pack and trap schemata.

 

But why the love for chicago? If they gotta set it anywhere, set it in the city that already looks like the world ended: detroit or nothing!
