In Reply to: So, we've talked about all the COOL things we've seen...what's the top 5 WORST showings from this Toy Fair? posted by Blanka

: 1) And this is the big one for me, Diamond Select had the worst showing I've seen in many o' Toy Fair. Just abysmal. Not a Wolverine Select figure, not a Thor Select figure, and hardly any Marvel Selects in sight. We got an announcement of a Silver Surfer. That's what you bring to the big dance?

There IS a MS Wolverine and her looks GREAT! A really good likeness... just no photos were allowed.

: not to mention my own personal dejection over both the Tomb Raider and Invincible licenses being announced, and only Minimates being the product shown.

There is also an Atom Eve Femme Fatal statue.

: 2) No further Arkham figures past Grundy. I felt like one more wave could have been done with Two-Face, Hugo, Bunny Batman, and maybe a Wonder City Robot or Talia Guard or even Harley's Revenge Harley. Yet, they claim that they didn't have enough characters to make a last wave. Are they high? Or did they just get bored with the line? Either way, it's a BS excuse. Happy to get Grundy, but come on. Deadshot gets a figure? Mad Hatter gets a figure? Zzasz gets a figure? Yet, Hugo Strange, to main antagonist DOESN'T? Makes sense....

There is still more Arkham coming. The line for them right now is like printing their own money. That's why they are re-releasing previous waves of both Asylum and City. Jim is well aware of who is left to do.

: 5) DC Collectibles (yes two DCC complaints)--please don't make that Catwoman exclusive to that box set only. Because what happens is I buy all the singles of the other characters, because I KNOW you'll rip us off on the accessories in the boxed set. Therefore I'm required to buy the singles if I want the accessories, and then buy the box set to get that one figure, and then PRAY that I can sell the duplicate figures off to recoup a little of my cost. Come on. Just be straight up with us.

Catwoman may still come out as a single later like they did with Superman. They just don't know yet.
