Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!
Which really blows. If Hasbro tried to pull the same crap with Marvel Universe, it would be the end of the line. That is a collector's line, plain and simple, and collectors will have none of that crap. Mattel's recent endeavors in that scale with Green Lantern and The Dark Knight rises had the same basic five points. It's really disconcerting seeing articulation step backwards. I fear it won't be long until we're back to the days of getting great sculpted figures ruined by action features like we were in the Saga line, or in the Spider-Man 6" line. Heh, remember that Mace Windu with the giant rod sticking out of his back and the rubber arms? Oh man, that one was a low point.
