One of the reasons we were told as to why GL Animated and Young Justice were cancelled was because they did not move enough merchandise. Based on what we've seen of Teen Titans Go, would you buy merchandise (action figures, plush, apparel, etc.) from the show?

I'm not going to support that garbage or Beware the Batman. They've essentially killed anything and everything I cared about.

I voted no. But as I think about it my kids
Are excited about the show. I'd buy stuff for
Them but not for me.

#1) Where?
I didn't see any GLAS merchandise. I would have bought everything they ever came out with.
I'll have to make my own. :evil:

#2) I say no to plushies. I got My Little Pony for that.

They probably meant Green Lantern toys in a round about way. Since the movie stuff didn't do so well nobody wanted the animated stuff on their pegs. :(

I'm going to have to wait and see. I thought the show was just sight gags and goofiness (like the shorts during YJ and GL:TAS), but one of the promos I saw actually showed the Titans fighting a villain (Cinderblock, I think). If they are presented as superheroes, even lightheartedly (like say, Powerpuff Girls), I may watch. If I like it, I may buy stuff. Other than that:

1. Even if I don't like the show, if any of the merchandise is a useful extension of my existing Titans collection, I would probably buy it. I doubt that will be the case, but the possibility exists, I suppose. For example, if they produced a Titans Tower playset or vehicles that worked with my Bandai or even JLU figures, I'd almost certainly buy it.

2. Of course I'd buy any figures I thought were a good fit -- for example, I'd like a properly scaled Cinderblock, and from what I saw, the stylistic differences might not be too great.

3. I would buy any merchandise that I feel would lend itself to customizing -- for example, if the hypothetical Cinderblock I mentioned above actually was produced, it might not fit with my existing figures as is, but I might be able to modify it.

To sum up, there's a chance I might buy stuff.

Maybe leaning toward a probably not unless it fits into my ImagiNext collection. If ImagiNext offered the rest of the Titans---especially the gals---and some Go villains I would be all over that product.

Nope.

Didn't when it was first out, and I am certainly not with the "dumbed down" version that's coming.

Nope. If they'd done reasonably priced Young Justice figures or just worked them into the DCUC line, I would have bought more YJ. I have no interest in the toonified titans.

I have to agree with Big IV on this. I honestly could care less, but if they do find a way to incorporate this into the Imaginext line, then perhaps I would be up for buying this since my son would want it at that point. As for my collection though it is a resounding NO WAY.

I'm not against the show just because it's aimed at younger audiences. Jokes are either funny or they aren't. I'm almost 30 and I still enjoy the occasional Rugrats and Muppet Babies, and those certainly weren't aimed at me.

That being said, for collecting purposes, I tend to go for stuff that looks awesome on a shelf. I look at them as decoration. Some people hang Picasso on their walls and collect ornamental plates. I hang Superman paintings and collect badass looking action figures and statues. I probably wouldn't get these for myself. If I had kids, that would be different.

Plushes, yes, action figures, no. Had the show been in the same continuity as the original Teen Titans or New Teen Titans I might have pulled the trigger on figures but unless they release some REALLY cute plushies I'm gonna have to pass.

I'd vote "it depends" based on how the line was put together, format, pricing, etc.

Am I interested in a line happening? Yes.
Would I commit to it now sight unseen? No.
