However-- Toy Biz- Super Hero Showdown fall apart if you look at them funny-- and that new DC Direct line-- both of Kyles legs popped off as I took him out of the package (although at least compared to DCD 6" figures- these can be put back on versus just sitting in a snapped off pile)


I just got a Mole Man off of Ebay, hasn't arrived yet, so I will see because it is my first from this series. Still want Beast and maybe Doc Ock. Now I am not a big FF fan but I don't expect Hasbro to do Mole Man, but I would like to do a Toad, another I don't expect they will do, and the body type is about the same, plus it was a good price.

Yes, he is the bringer of all good news for comic and comic related movies. And I thank him for it, because my kids think I'm cooler than I really am. I've been taking credit at home for his posts for years. :D

And 2800 for me as of today. Wow.

I'm catching up to Tex there! Maybe I can move out of the 30's spot and into the 20s? :lol:

At the rate you're going, you'll be in the top 20 before too long. :lol:

I doubt I'm gonna ever get higher than 9th. :?

Spammer. :P

Kidding aside, it's funny how the top 100 members have over 90% of the posts. :D

Sadly, the site's really contracted the past year or so. I guess the bulk of the site really was the JLU fanatics.

How much more will it contract once that final 3-pack hits in a few weeks? :?

Of course, the action figure industry as a whole has also shrunk dramatically in the past couple years.

Action figures seem to come and go like the tides. We will probably now see a dry spell during which we can try to track down what we missed in the glut.

That always happens. It's like fads.

A 10+ year toy line is hardly a fad Van Statten. :)

Overall the toy industry is contracting. Shorter product life cycles, smaller windows of interest, and less margin for error. So there's less time for a fan base to really build. Heck, it took 3 years or so for JLU to really get going.

But once it got going, there was a large hard core devoted fan base. That has slowly trickled down to just a few as the line comes to a close. I plan on sticking around, but I can tell you now I won't be as active. I'll still be doing customs, but it just won't be the same.

Oh the moment they became Target exclusives it was a fad. Let's not have this argument again. I'm going to bet the core fanbase was not a big as you'd like to believe. It's okay... fanboys are gonna think big.

Oh I actually am pretty realistic. I know the fan base wasn't nearly as big as most like to think. Please don't lump me in with some of the nuts hahaha.

I just meant that any line that can go that long isn't a fad. I don't care if it's a single store exclusive or not. It was that way for far longer in the line's life than it wasn't.
