Game over Boyzz!

Time to put on your 3D glasses!

@  Shrug : (10 December 2017 - 09:55 PM)

Looks like lasers are back on the menu, boys!

It's Laser Time, Boyz!

Listen up y'all! Your the Boyz brigade. When its laser Time put on the 3D shades

"Zoolander" sucks.

Are you serious? I just told you like, a second ago

@  Shrug : (08 December 2017 - 10:38 PM)

But why male models?

@  BlackMax : (08 December 2017 - 06:30 PM)

Because they're too big for carrier pidgeons...?

@  RichardT1977 : (08 December 2017 - 10:03 AM)

And was "fowl" supposed to be a portmanteau of "fowl" and "owl"? Because...

@Patchouli Norman...? *looks up pics* HAHAHAHAA yessssss!!! :D

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 December 2017 - 01:10 AM)

Fowl, actually.

Back to Mighty Max: Am I the only one who thought at first that Virgil was an owl until someone said otherwise?

@  RichardT1977 : (07 December 2017 - 11:29 PM)

(N/M, it was Gary Chalk)

@  Echowarrior : (07 December 2017 - 08:45 PM)

I second that Exosquad revival. It had awesome toys and the VAs are all still alive...so far as I know.

@  Patchouli Kn... : (07 December 2017 - 07:25 PM)

Also, can confirm that Allspark user TheMightyMollusk is the real-life counterpart of Norman

@  Patchouli Kn... : (07 December 2017 - 07:16 PM)

The Mighty Max intro theme was rad as hell

@  RichardT1977 : (07 December 2017 - 06:17 PM)

So, syndicated stuff that Rob Paulsen did in the 90s isn't going to DVD, huh?

@  D.M : (07 December 2017 - 05:40 PM)

Yeah, whatever is going on with Mighty Max? They haven't even reran it after its original run (unlike, for example, The Mask which too awaits a DVD release).

@  Vexwing : (07 December 2017 - 03:56 PM)

I just want 90's nostalgia to progress to the point someone finally releases Mighty Max on DVD.

@  Dekafox : (07 December 2017 - 03:11 PM)

Maybe someone will revive Exosquad and finally resolve that ending cliffhanger

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 December 2017 - 02:21 PM)

I'm waiting for 90s nostalgia to hit the point that someone tries to bring back Extreme Dinosaurs.

@  Locoman : (07 December 2017 - 01:41 PM)

You know you're really scraping the bottom of the barrel of 80's nostalgia when you're trying to bring back the Sectaurs, of all things....

@  Shrug : (07 December 2017 - 08:17 AM)

Wowza. I haven't played any kind of 3D video game with those third person conversations for some time. They look super awkward once you're not used to them.

And the award for best title drop goes to.

Epic Mickey: Backstroke of the West.

@  Locoman : (05 December 2017 - 11:32 PM)

Pete has come himself! Okay! Then I shall get Pete to fight me! Heh heh huh!

@  Jetstream C-18 : (05 December 2017 - 09:37 PM)

Something strange has happened! Now there are TWO Mickey Mice!

@  Jetstream C-18 : (05 December 2017 - 09:36 PM)

Wait. Fox owns Star TV? As in the Star TV that aired the Omni dubs?

@  Shrug : (05 December 2017 - 09:33 PM)

Long ago in a distant land, I, Mickey, the shape shifting master of darkness, unleashed an unspeakable evil. But a foolish samurai warrior wielding a magic sword stepped forth to oppose me. Before the final blow was struck, I tore open a portal in time, and flung him into the future where my evil is law. Now the fool seeks to return to the past and undo the future that is Mouse.

@  ZakuConvoy : (05 December 2017 - 09:11 PM)

@  Echowarrior : (05 December 2017 - 07:58 PM)

They'll never own the Green Bay Packers.

@  Locoman : (05 December 2017 - 07:17 PM)

Soon Disney will own every franchise on Earth, but on the plus side maybe we'll get to see Homer and Zoidberg in the next Kingdom Hearts game.

@  TheMightyMol... : (05 December 2017 - 06:02 PM)

Every Movie Thread Ever, go!

@  Pennpenn : (05 December 2017 - 04:20 PM)

I probably could have tolerated the explosions and scrap metal bots if the main human character's initial set up hadn't been "pointless white male teen pathetically trying to get his leg over an attractive girl". The universe never needed more of that kind of thing.

@  Bass X0 : (05 December 2017 - 02:58 PM)

Can't a man block it out?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (05 December 2017 - 12:20 PM)

I will never hate the movies because the avalanche of money and attention they have provided the brand with has given us toys that were unthinkable a decade ago.

Each exciting character comes dressed in a truly outrageous screen accurate look and includes a set of rockin? miniature accessories!

I have to admit, I watched a lot of Jem when the Hub started re-airing episodes. So I think it's quite cool that Hasbro and Integrity have teamed up for new product for the brand.

Probably for the best. The dolls are adult collector, so intended for ages 14 and up and not designed for serious play.

If it weren't for the detachable arms/hands, I'd be recommending the heck out of Monster High for your kid. Some of the characters scratch a very similar bright-and-colorful itch (Venus McFlytrap has a lot of the same aesthetic going on), and the increased emphasis on aspirational messaging is really nice to see.

That is the Synergy I always wanted.

my point was, where is the line for the kiddies

I didnt really mean THESE EXACT Dolls.

My girl likes the cartoon of Jem, so without a monster high whatever cartoon she probably wouldnt be interested

she wasnt something compatible with her barbie and 12 inch joes

Aspirational messaging? It doesn't matter how you look as long as you dress like a whore?

I'm guessing there isn't gonna be a line for kiddies. Like how Masters of the Universe is only the collector line nowadays. Although, the current MOTU are probably still very play-friendly. (I don't collect MOTU, just going by what I've seen/read)

$120 for a show-accurate Synergy is insane, even for an adult collectable.



I bet the MOTU Classics figures didn't cost that much.

How do you compare those two lines?

The most accurate comparison to evaluate the price is Tonner. And if you want to compare the dolls to action figures, look at Hot Toys, or Sideshow Toys.

Really, $120 isn't all that "insane" when you look at the market for these sorts of product. It might be out of yours and my price ranges, but there are buyers out there.

Yeah, MOTU Classics isn't really the best to compare with, especially considering size and play pattern. I just mentioned that because it's a franchise that used to have kid-oriented toys, but not anymore.
