the market has shifted towards 6"/1:12 scale
Why is it that collectors can't just say, "This is what I
like better"? Why is there always this silly, unfounded argumentum ad populum
that has no basis in fact? Is this same "market" the reason STAR WARS
still sells so well? Is Hasbro considering a 3¾" Marvel line because of this "shifted market"? What specific market analysis led to this conclusion?
and we have yet to get a "Marvel Legends" like line for DC characters.
Was one needed? I see nothing special about Marvel Legends, and I have plenty of DC figures in 6" comic style in my DC Direct collection.
Yes, Justice League Unlimited
cheap, but that's fine, because the most important element of a figure is capturing the Bruce Timm style. It's a good thing, too, because when it comes to action figures, cheap
is the only thing Mattel does well. If you want Barbie dolls or tiny toy cars, then you need to go see Mattel. In the action figure market, though, Mattel will always be stuck playing second fiddle to Hasbro. Their movie lines are a joke (I dread the idea of getting The Dark Night
toys as birthday gifts next year), and their 6" DC line doesn't look much better. Honestly, Etrigan makes me wonder if those guys even know they don't have a current MOTU line in production.
