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.

@  Telly : (26 June 2017 - 04:12 PM)

*nevermind*

@  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)

Nobody is getting that.

@  Bass X0 : (26 June 2017 - 03:10 PM)

Anyone getting the SNES Classic with StarFox 2?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (26 June 2017 - 09:52 AM)

I have yet to see any TR wave 5 items at retail in my area, only in Internet reports from overseas.

@  unluckiness : (26 June 2017 - 09:28 AM)

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?

@  Dekafox : (26 June 2017 - 07:10 AM)

With explosions instead of pouches and pockets.

@  Nevermore : (26 June 2017 - 02:45 AM)

Michael Bay is the Rob Liefeld of the movie industry.

@  TheMightyMol... : (26 June 2017 - 02:01 AM)

Now if we could explode Justin Bieber, I might pay to watch it.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (25 June 2017 - 11:47 PM)

Bieber isn't nearly as over-the-top as explosions director.

@  Bass X0 : (25 June 2017 - 11:35 PM)

Michael Bay is Justin Bieber of the movie industry- everyone makes fun out of his over- the- top -style but he keeps pulling in huge amounts of money

@  Patchouli Kn... : (25 June 2017 - 06:59 PM)

Is the "Zeus" pronounced like "Zoose" or "Zayus?"

@  Dracula : (25 June 2017 - 05:47 PM)

sorry I saw the name and just got excited

@  Dracula : (25 June 2017 - 05:47 PM)

NITRO ZEUS

@  Paladin : (25 June 2017 - 06:57 AM)

nobody here has moved past Wave 1. maybe if they hadn't crammed it with repaints....

@  Noideaforaname : (25 June 2017 - 06:46 AM)

Nitro's gonna be a pain in the butt to find, isn't he?

@  Pennpenn : (25 June 2017 - 03:51 AM)

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.

@  Pennpenn : (24 June 2017 - 09:58 PM)

Been playing a bit of Saints Row 4 and honestly the Blast Blast is hilariously overpowered.

@  Rycochet : (24 June 2017 - 05:28 PM)

And a better headsculpt.

@  unluckiness : (24 June 2017 - 05:23 PM)

It actually has half decent gimmicks too.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 June 2017 - 04:03 PM)

It's still crap but at least it takes up less space.

@  Rycochet : (24 June 2017 - 10:31 AM)

I'd rather have Armada Sideswipe than Alternator Sideswipe.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 June 2017 - 09:50 AM)

What he's really doing is buying all the sideswipe, so that after the apocolypse.. He'll have an army to take ove the world!

@  unluckiness : (24 June 2017 - 09:00 AM)

We could be taking this the wrong way. What if this person means to sacrifice their own money to prevent Armada Sideswipes from falling into the hands of those who don't know better?

@  Rycochet : (24 June 2017 - 06:26 AM)

People say silly things online all the time, usually followed by a smilie or a wink. Take away the context and they go from being a joke to absurd hyperbole.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 June 2017 - 06:07 AM)

But that would miss the entire point of hyperbole.

@  Pennpenn : (24 June 2017 - 06:03 AM)

Well that's a stupid attitude from someone who would waste a lot of money. I mean, they should just... not buy movie toys?

@  Bass X0 : (24 June 2017 - 04:52 AM)

Most insane thing I read of the day: "I would rather buy 100 Armada Sideswipes and PRiD Airachnids than buy any Bayformers crap"

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2017 - 06:10 PM)

His dialogue is full of allusions to his infamous lookalike, though sometimes as subversions. Oh, and sometimes he sings Karaoke. Check his rendition of "My Way", it's on Youtube.

I'm wondering if one of the Jokers is a TRU exclusive: the one I went to had tons of White Jacket Joker, and has a differently-styled Suicide Squad logo (black with ranbow sparkles around it, compared to the white/silver logo on the lone Deadshot I saw).

I really can't figure these things out. Amazon claims the evening-gown Harley is an Amazon exclusive.

 

So if those are both true, you need two exclusives from two different stores to build Croc's jacketed arms and hands.

Some early SDCC stuff:

 

From Mattel, we've got several new Collect-And-Connect lines featuring characters like Dr. Psycho, Wonder Girl, King Shark, Reaper (from Batman: Year Two), and a plethora of DCTV and TDKR figures.

 

http://news.toyark.c...ckmaster-211968

 

 

And from DC Collectibles, lots more Icons stuff that I can't decide if I care about or not, but much more importantly, Superman: The Animated Series figures.

I'm conflicted, some of those Matty BAFs look nifty, but I know they're prototypes, and the Matty factory craptomizer will do it's work in production.

I love the Expression Pack for Batman. I think I would pretty much always have him displayed with the Shocked/Horrified expression.

 

I really want to like the Bombshells Wonder Woman but when translated to three dimensions she looks positively nutty.

Seriously, those Bombshell figures are horrifying.

 

I'm leaning towards that expression pack though.  Hmmmm.  Batman scandalized at everything?  Yes, I like that idea.

Don't know if anyone is really interested in pictures but on a random impulse buy, I got the $10 12 inch simplified figure for Wonder Woman that's the equivalent of Marvel's Titan Heroes. In not expecting it to be some DCU Classics or Marvel Legends level of engineering, it's not a bad toy as a toy. What is hilarious is that it has better than the $10 6 inch BvS Wonder Woman figure that seemed to be aiming slightly higher. Not more, since it's the same number of joints, but larger range. She lost knees in favor of exterior thigh swivels + more range due to the lack of a skirt. Just felt like they made smarter choices.

It also got me officially curious about Batman Unlimited but that's another discussion since I need to see if we have existing threads for it.

So what's this about a Walmart exclusive $100 Batcave?

I'll try to remember to take pictures next time I go (unless you found images elsewhere).

So, I dunno if it's been discussed before, but there's this leaked image of an alleged Lego Batman Movie minifigures blindbag line, including such classic characters as Surf's Up Batman, Clock King, Red Hood, Chef Joker (?), and, of all characters, Orca.

 

1476804202812.png

 

Interesting as this is on its own, it's making me wonder if the legal position on doing Lego Batman Movie blindbags is different to Lego DC or Marvel blindbags on the whole; if it's true that they can't do superhero blindbags because they're too close to being action figures, this being possible is pretty interesting.

I picked up BTAS Clayface, despite those incredibly ugly promotional photos that they used.

Surprisingly, he doesn't look bad in person.  I think that the head-sculp, while nice, isn't exactly dead-on to the animation model, but the colour and textures of the body work well enough to make him probably my favourite BTAS villain figure to date.

 

I'm not sure what they were going with the axe arm attachment, though.  The way that they oriented the blade with the curvature of the forearm, Clayface can pretty much only whack himself with the bladed edge.  Ironically, I think I'm just going to bin the pieces and display him with both actual arms.

Oof, that sounds like a Matty thing.  Hope DC Direct doesn't pick up more of their bad habits.

 

And speaking of lousy articulation!  The nuDoomsday wave all hit sub-$15 on amazon, and I ended up buying them all, despite only wanting the MOTUC-buck guys, like Snarly Armorbats here (it's fun, I have to admit).
