 Post subject: SAVE the Buffy line (again).
PostPosted: Tue Aug 28, 2007 5:20 pm 
Buffy has died many deaths and has been revived many times, both literally and figuratively. The merchandising of this property has been a roller coaster ride and our BCC club was created to keep the merchandise coming and make it easy to pre-order all of the future product. But what happens when a manufacturer pulls the plug? When MAC canceled the action figures, we were there to help persuade DST to continue where MAC left off. Now the time has come to do do it again, as DST has recently decided to cancel the Buffy/Angel action figure lines. This cancellation includes both the new Revamped lines and the standard 6" action figure line. While, we had already been working on a plan to keep the line going, independent from our work, the fans themselves have organized a campaign to Save the Buffy Figures. More info on this campaign is here (we take no credit for this fan based movement). We have been asked to cooperate with this campaign, so to make it easy for every Buffy fan to help, we will be opening our membership club store, Buffy Collector Club (www.BuffyCollectorClub.com) to everyone for one day only, Wednesday, August 29, 2007. Here you will be able to learn more about how you can help save the Buffy Figures! We have put together a list of proposed action figure products for which we would be interested in commissioning from DST to be produced as exclusives for our stores. So please check out the SAVE BUFFY FIGURES campaign and also stop by our BCC store to vote on what you what us to have manufactured. Anyone, whether a member or not will have full access to the BCC store to purchase product and/or vote on proposed products. Access will be open from Midnight to Midnight EST August 29, 2007. To read more about the Save Buffy Figures campaign go to BTVSFigs Forum and Slay Alive Forum.

Everyone must go vote tomorrow. Lets make sure we can get a few more figures out before its all over.

Im sorry, Im a big Buffyverse fan, but Im kinda atleast sympathetic to DST's reasons for dropping the action figure lines.
Buffy popularity just isnt what it used to be. Every buisness looks for the next big thing and Buffy just isnt it anymore. They have to invest in new things when their old things arent bringing home the bacon anymore. Buffy isnt a Superman or a Spiderman with worldwide recognition across all demographics.
Personally I think that towards the end the line became a little TO MUCH collector oriented. Its a Buffy line, but the only figures are Xander and Cordelia. Should have taken a page out of Marvel and DC figures and thrown a Buffy in each wave like they do with Batmans and Spidermans.
Plus, after the problems with the season 5 Angel figure I got, and seeing that all the other figures are made the same way, Im not that interested in this line. Might get "Chosen" Giles though just so I can have a figure of the character incase RIPPER finally gets off the ground. Really looking forward to that.
Plus the figures that BCC is suggesting would more than likely be way more than I would spend on a figure.
Really hope the deluxe line continues though. Id love a dx Giles. Im not usually into 6in figures, but these show me what fun people that collect Marvel Legends and the such are having.
