Twitter's revamp is so dumb. Nowadays, even when I am logged out of my account, right-clicking an image on Google Chrome won't let me access a URL to easily get the image's full size. That functionality was so useful!

@  Steevy Maximus : (25 January 2020 - 10:01 PM)

But when was the last time you saw a major retailer (since TRU) actually allot shelf space for a Transformers Titan? Or the Vintage Collection Poe X-Wing? There's clearly some sort of disparity between "girls" and "boys" toys that give companies justification to create $100+ items in the girls segment in FAR greater frequency than in boys.

@  fourteenwings : (25 January 2020 - 12:56 AM)

"how expensive they were" Tell that to L.O.L. O.M.G. and the $129 Amazing Surprise (I mean I guess when it comes to the toy aisle Power Rangers isn't a juggernaut like L.O.L.)

@  Steevy Maximus : (24 January 2020 - 09:18 PM)

I think the big reason we didn't see the actual combining Zords at retail was because of how expensive they were. It would cost $100 to get enough of them to make a Megazord, $160+ if you want the Ultrazord. Or parents could just get the dang Ultrazord for $40 even if it didn't combine.

@  Steevy Maximus : (24 January 2020 - 09:11 PM)

Because they are "kids toys" not "collector toys"

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 January 2020 - 03:27 PM)

1) I don't have Target. 2) can't go into my walmart. I'm surprised Hasbro won't sell the toys on Pulse

@  Bass X0 : (24 January 2020 - 02:43 PM)

I dreamt my phone was ringing and woke up to answer it.

@  Sabrblade : (24 January 2020 - 02:05 PM)

The Lightning Collection figures, the smaller normal-sized Beast Morphers Ranger/enemy/Beast-Bot figures, the role-play morpher and weapon toys, and the simplistic non-combining megazord toys have all been very easy to find at various Targets and Walmarts. It's only been the actual combining Beast Morphers zord toys (which are bizarrely being sold individually this time) that have been hard to find in stores.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 January 2020 - 01:49 PM)

Thought I do question Hasbro's almost reluctance to have the toys available anywhere.

@  Paladin : (24 January 2020 - 01:44 PM)

i've been trying to sell mine for weeks...

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 January 2020 - 01:37 PM)

I hadn't opened mine yet, but from what I've seen, the general agreement is that the Beast Morpher zords are much better than Bandais.

@  ThunderWear : (24 January 2020 - 11:16 AM)

I'm guessing if they're going to do anything on the level of Legacy Zords, it's being discussed behind NDAs at Toy Fair

@  Rodimus Supreme : (24 January 2020 - 10:38 AM)

Lightning Collection is good, and they're taking their sweet time on making Zords that are better than Bandai's Zords.

@  ThunderWear : (24 January 2020 - 10:34 AM)

So, what's the general PR fandom consensus of the Hasbro run of PR so far? I pretty much stepped out of the community after I got the Bandai Legacy zords I wanted.

@  Paladin : (24 January 2020 - 08:46 AM)

that would require someone to BUY Hasbro PR toys...

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 January 2020 - 07:17 AM)

Well hopefully see some cool PR stuff. Wish BBTS sold Hasbro PR toys.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 January 2020 - 06:32 AM)

When is NY TF?

@  fourteenwings : (23 January 2020 - 11:43 PM)

I don't know about Hasbro's general policy but I know everybody was on lockdown for Frozen II, which included both LEGO and Hasbro. Plus, I'm guessing everybody is holding off PR for NY Toy Fair? Overall, it's best to remember that Toy Fairs are for buyers, not fans.

@  fourteenwings : (23 January 2020 - 11:41 PM)

LEGO has been doing this for ages, including sending cease and desists when outlets get leaked images.

@  ThunderWear : (23 January 2020 - 10:42 PM)

And then they ended up selling off the brand, so I guess I wasn't the only one.

@  ThunderWear : (23 January 2020 - 10:41 PM)

Last time a toy brand I followed tightened down on toy fair and all the invited guests posted glowing reviews of what they saw, I ended up being disappointed as heck.

@  Steevy Maximus : (23 January 2020 - 10:34 PM)

JediNews UK basically said they got a walkthrough of Lego's showcase...but were legally bound to NOT talk about anything, much less take pics.

@  ThunderWear : (23 January 2020 - 10:24 PM)

I wondered why I had seen basically nothing newsworthy from the event

@  Steevy Maximus : (23 January 2020 - 10:14 PM)

Word is that Hasbro and Lego have their UK Toy Fair stuff on MAJOR lockdown. Full NDAs and everything.

@  ThunderWear : (23 January 2020 - 09:28 PM)

Seeing people say the $0.99 + $20 shipping item is cheaper than the $19.99 + free shipping item and getting tons of likes for it... I just don't know anymore.

@  Rycochet : (22 January 2020 - 03:24 PM)

In 50 years, retail will be dead because all stores are staffless fully automated operations controlled by Amazon. The UBI will be less than a fifth of what it actually costs to live after two decades of cuts and.a steadfast refusal to match inflation.

@  Maximus Ambus : (22 January 2020 - 02:55 PM)

In fifty years retail will be a thing of the past through robots, printers and Universal Basic Income.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 January 2020 - 10:00 AM)

Walmart just needs to go bankrupt already.

@  ThunderWear : (20 January 2020 - 07:19 AM)

They didn't put the 35th anniversary stuff back out until after new year. I'm no retail expert, but I feel like having stock on the shelf is better than the back. Especially toys at christmas time.

@  ThunderWear : (20 January 2020 - 07:18 AM)

Yeah, my local walmart took away the 35th anniversary endcap weeks before Christmas and left the Transformer section empty well past Christmas.

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 January 2020 - 04:44 AM)

Mine only has the 35th Anniversary Voyagers. A whole lot of them.

You should be able to set eBay to display in your local currency, although personally I like to know the actual currency the item is listed in so I know if I need to account for forex fees or not

Is it because of lack of demand, lack of people being able to log on and buy it, or people just dropping the line all together, increased production?

Probably increased production and the fact that he's included in the subscriptions, not as many people are running to the site at noon to buy him.

I'm dropping this line wholesale once my subscription runs out at the end of the year.

My list of reasons is long-ish, but off the top of my head, and in no particular order:

1) QC issues (What up, Roboto & King Hssss?)

2) Matty/DR no longer using UPS for delivery of merchandise for subscribers after this year.

3) Running out of characters I have even a modicum of interest owning as figure(s)

4) Mattel's playing fast & loose with the subscription "rules".

When I buy a subscription alledging that I will be getting "ALL" figs. that are not reissues but then you change it to not include She-Ra 2.0, well, you aren't going to win any points with me.

5) DR's phone reps basically not understanding a lick of English.

Apparently I'm way behind because at Wondercon they announced Leech (who looks awesome) and Hurricane Hordak. Hordak will supposedly have vac-metal armor (the figure looks very uninteresting to me). Leech definitely has some 2002 influence in him.

I don't know how to feel about Hurricane Hordak.

On the one hand he was the Hordak we had as kids, so I have NOSTALGIA.

On the other hand I never liked him as a kid because I always thought that spinner army made him look really dumb.

I'll definetly be buying the Swamp Thing, Voltron, and Queen Marlena & Cringer at the show. Kilowog is a maybe.

I'd like the Stay-Puft GB exclusive but like HTS's Galactus last year and this year's Death Star 12-pack and MU Sentinel I think it is size prohibitive as far as shipping it back to N.Y. Plus the price isn't exactly low at $70.00USD.

I might buy the Polly Pocket/She-Ra 3-pack depending on price and size.

As a lapsed Barbie doll collector I'll be skipping the Carol Ferris/Barbie doll.

I'll have to see what else they have in store but I'm actually more excited for the Voltron and Swamp Thing figs. than I am for the MOTUC item(s) at this point.

I'll also be buying the Franken Berry Hot Wheels and possibly the BTTF one as well, depending on size.

At $35.00USD I'm going to assume it is larger than a regular Hot Wheels vehicle.

I mean Franken Berry is only $20.00 and that comes in "premium" packaging so one has to wonder what makes the BTTF item $15.00 more.

Cringer looks fine to me. Then again I'm not a modern MotU collector. (would be if they were in stores...) I LOVE thd idea of doing The queen as both Queen and Flash Gordon Astronaut. That was inspired.

Voltron really doesn't impress me. I want to like him because I like Voltron but its too simple looking and primary colored for me. Bandai is looking ok with Thundercats but Mattel has yet to show me the Voltron.


ZacWilliam, is it wrong that the POP Doll set looks coolest?

Hum.

I'll probably get Marlena and Cringer. Superboy in cloning chamber looks cool, although I don't really collect that line.

I'll get Voltron because i'm a huge Voltron whore, but I agree with Zac in that the simplicity and lack of detailing is a turn-off.

I'm disappointed in the lack of articulation in the GL Movie Masters figures as compared to regular DCUC ones. I'm also a bit nervous about Swamp Thing's "internal skeleton" and how that will limit articulation. I might get ST.

So far though, there's nothing i'm seeing that's really lighting my fire.

It really reminds me of the Robot Chicken Voltron from their first season "You got Served" dance-off bit. It wouldn't be surprising considering they've already established that relationship but maybe they decided to downplay it a bit.

I think Cringer looks perfect honestly after all, he did grow quite a bit when he became Battle Cat. I'm also glad the Matty Collector version of Marlena comes in her space helmet outfit vs the dress.
