Toy Galaxy is my favorite overall toy-related channel on YouTube.

@  fourteenwings : (26 February 2020 - 11:29 PM)

Last year's coverage via Toy YouTubers was brilliant. However, since YouTube's new (unfortunately necessary) guidelines the companies barely invited any of them back, so all we get is super-popular collector's info.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (26 February 2020 - 09:19 PM)

If it weren't for Toy Galaxy's coverage video, I would not have known about the Defenders of the Earth figures. New toys of Flash Gordon, The Phantom, and Mandrake the Magician? In 2020? I would have said you were smoking something strong.

@  Nevermore : (26 February 2020 - 06:32 PM)

So the question is... has Madagascar closed down all its ports yet?

@  Nevermore : (26 February 2020 - 06:31 PM)

A couple that got infected attended a Carnival event with over 300 people in attendance.

So the Corona virus keeps getting closer to where I live. Several confirmed cases in my federal state already.

@  Steevy Maximus : (26 February 2020 - 02:20 PM)

Man, only having collector sites to get Toy Fair news from sucks. Did you know there is a 4" line of kids figures for the new Avengers game coming?

@  Dekafox : (26 February 2020 - 11:54 AM)

Since Omega already exists they could name it Auntie

@  Otaku : (26 February 2020 - 10:07 AM)

Oh, and one last Titan,provided we can fudge things a bit to include a character from Transformers: Animated; how about something at least resembling TF:A Omega Supreme?

@  Otaku : (26 February 2020 - 10:05 AM)

How about they find a way to make a mold they can use for both Broadside and Tidal Wave?

@  Maximus Ambus : (26 February 2020 - 02:13 AM)

Optimus Maximus, the mysterious titan of the Arisen, also Iaconus from Cyberverse.

@  TriBlurr : (25 February 2020 - 12:41 AM)

I think the only other Titan class character that would interest me after Scoponok would be Tidal Wave

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 07:34 PM)

A Titan would have more room for other toys to hang out, assuming one has the table space for it.

@  Darth Gonzo : (24 February 2020 - 03:32 PM)

Play wise which would be better a Commander Class Aircraft Carrier Mode Broadside or a Titan Class Aircraft Carrier Mode Broadside?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (24 February 2020 - 01:53 PM)

I'd be interested in a deluxe or voyager Fort Max in Armada flashback red-and-green.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 10:49 AM)

I'd honestly be more interested in Commander-class Scorponok and Fort Max. I don't have the space for Titans.

@  Maximus Ambus : (24 February 2020 - 10:44 AM)

Make Commander class city bots to annoy collectors too

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 10:43 AM)

Make two Broadsides. One Voyager-sized that only turns into a jet, and one Titan-sized that only turns into an aircraft carrier. Piss off everyone on both sides of the scale.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (24 February 2020 - 10:41 AM)

Since they seem to also go by the oh-so holy cartoon scale thing, he'd probably be a Commander Class figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 February 2020 - 10:34 AM)

Broadside is an aircraft carrier. He should probably be metroplex sized.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (24 February 2020 - 10:21 AM)

Broadside's more of a Commander Class.

@  Darth Gonzo : (24 February 2020 - 04:47 AM)

I think Broadside should be the next Titan Class figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 February 2020 - 09:38 PM)

I tan nicely! But also have a family history of cancer... so... yeah, pasty for me it is.

@  Otaku : (23 February 2020 - 04:22 PM)

I really do begin to get sunburned after about 5 minutes of direct exposure, nowadays.  Side effect of already being pasty then going on a particular medication.  Yay?

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 February 2020 - 01:36 PM)

It makes me burn. Accursed daystar.

Next you'll say they have Dominion Tank Police and L.I.L.Y.Cat

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 February 2020 - 06:06 PM)

Bubblegum Crisis, going by several shouts down.

@  Rhinox42 : (21 February 2020 - 01:19 PM)

Blugh, the english dub of BGC is atrocious.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 February 2020 - 07:02 AM)

I might need to update my software, or they face regional limitations, cause I found no evidence of either.

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 February 2020 - 10:31 PM)

DUDE! Starcom and COPS are on Tubi too!

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 February 2020 - 09:29 PM)

Spiffy! The english dub of Bubblegum Crisis on Tubi. It's gotten so hard to find these oldies on modern streaming services.

I think Cringer looks perfect honestly after all, he did grow quite a bit when he became Battle Cat.

Can't find a screencap with Cringer & Marlena, but compare his side with Adam here to his size with Marlena in the MC picture:

So maybe a little smaller than the animation, but not enough difference to look wrong to me. Cringer should be a bit smaller IMO as long as its not too small cause it makes the Battle Cat disguise better.


ZacWilliam, how about a compairison with 200x Adam and Cringer just for the heck of it...

Wow, that's a pretty cool exclusive with Queen Marlena. Cringer is a bit small, but that's understandable. I guess they had to sacrifice scale to keep the cost down.

Eh, yeah - he is a little smaller than he should be. I guess I figure a dedicated Cringer is something we never would see otherwise though and he's as big as they could make him within their budget.

They found the budget for a big yellow gorilla who'd never been in any form of MotU fiction. Meanwhile, Cringer's a core character...

Well, look at the ghost image below, with Cringer's head & shoulders scaled to around the same as the with-Cringer Marlena. And as the other caps below (from "Night of the Shadowbeasts") show, Cringer wasn't much smaller in MYP.

Most of the big yellow gorilla was reused for the Shadow Beast, though, so they were able to profit off the tooling twice. Meanwhile, Cringer is a cheapo one-time pack-in with no particular reuse potential. I also think his size is being misjudged a bit due to how low the toy holds its head compared to the height of its shoulders.

Yeah - he is undersized, but he's also cowering significantly whereas in the pic with Adam he's at least standing up straight. The toy still wouldn't come up to her waist with straight legs, but it'd be closer.

Well, sure. The former is a big ax-wielding gorilla warrior and the latter is Battle Cat's nondescript secret identity.

Believe me, I'd have loved enough size and articulation to pull off Cringer's "covering his eyes with his paws" look, but I can't fault Mattel at all for not wanting to devote such tooling to him.

I'm excited for Catra. I wonder if Mattel will be wary in selling more Princess of Power figures since Catra took a whole 30 hours to sell out rather than 3 hours. What with her likely being the second most sought after character from that line besides She-Ra/Adora (who sold out real quick).

I think(hope) they are comfortable with this. Maybe they've finally dialed in the right production numbers for going forward in which things last a little longer but still sell out in a reasonable time frame. Even something that takes a week to sell out is still a sell-out for them. I can't believe they'd start to worry unless something was up there for a full month or longer.

I ordered her the day after she was put up. With DotM getting released on monday, and all the effort I did to get anything on that day, I forgot all about her/

Didn't help when I ordered her on Tuesday that I was reminded that one of the nastier, mean spirited and just mean board posters here shares a name with her function almost turned me away from doing the order.
