>>7588286Making this an exclusive benefits nobody but scalpers.
New Game of Thrones set
I was just doing a new thread. Anyway, GoT!!! The Dragon and Danerys look beautiful
>>7588294I feel like they’re still testing if vehicles will sell in this line.If these sell well, I’m assuming we’ll see a retail version minus the air freshener.
>>7588288I like how they suggest that you'll actually be able to lift the set with two fingers, and that the hose attachments making the loops won't immediately pull away from the studs on the body in reality.Bummer about the con/online exclusivity. The price point is legit. I would have picked one up in-store.
>>7588286>available for pre-orderThank fuck. So it's just an "exclusive", not an EXCLUSIVE. >>7588298>>7588300Neat.jpg
>>7588300Short forearm means that figures are in the inferior Halo scale. I'll be waiting for a deep discount before picking this up.
Trying to get into some nature shooting, so here’s a custom I did in the rain
>>7588300>>7588298where the FUCK is the obligatory balista with bearded man?
>>7588298I don't give a shit about game of thrones, but fuck I'm looking forward to these toys
“Waiting on the roof”
>>7588390They give us only one figure in an $80 set, and it's the cheap, bubblegum machine quality kind (Halo scale).Mega, if you're listening... FUCK YOU!
>>7588298Wew, I dont care about GoT whatsoever but that dragon build looks pretty great. Love the spikes on the belly. Might need to pick this up after all.
>>7588387Short girls will be fine
>>7588383I read on Twitter that the preorder is just going to guarantee you get one at the con
>>7588298>>7588300Cant wait to see the other set.
>>7588298>89.cm wing spanthats too big! sets probably going to cost 50 dorrars
>>7588400>$80That's just the Toywiz price right? I can't imagine it being that high at Amazon or Walmart
Since Evil-Lyn is short packed, should I spend 16 dollars on Amazon for her, or is there a way I can find her in a store?I don't care about Game of Thrones at all, but I like the dragon.
>>7588468I mean, how much do you want her? I spent 15 each on Skeletor and He-Man way back before the five pack and Wind Raider since I never saw them in stores. It's a big mark-up, but compared to most other action figures, it's still pretty cheap and mostly negligible.
>>7588298>halo handsi sleep
>>7588298I'd like to know what the fuck a "black series" is
>>7588531probably the reinvented PRO series
>>7588545Or its lines more aimed toward adults
>>7588567I thought pro was aimed toward adults but dunno maybe youre right. It's a shame this is the closest we will get to fantasy.
Damn! they really did it! GOT Mega!lol! I wonder if the Hound will make an appearance with a voice chip that says says "c*nts"! lol!
>>7588298Oh shit this v the inevitable White Walker Dragon will be sick as fuck.I imagine we could get a Jon Snow and giant set too.
>>7588591The only sets announced are Dannarys/dragon and the battle of winterfell. Gotta wait to see if they sell or not.
>>7588587And the show has just ended, what timing!
>>7588685>release the ghaul 6 months after his chapter in destiny 2 endedthey are always slow
>>7588584Well the thing about the probuilder line is it's kind of aimed at both kids and adults, I'm thinking since got is an adult TV series the black series if they choice to continue it might open the door for more adult shows/movies. And yeah it fucking sucks that mega hasn't made a new fantasy or space line
>>7588677There will also be a iron throne set in 2020 along with two others. Kinda late to the party though
>>7588754>fucking sucks that mega hasn't made a new fantasy or space linedont get me started on that brother!
>>7588836We can pray anon
>>7588298this show has dragons? I thought they didnt
>>7588298I can see the crossover with MOTU now: Skeletor teleports her to Eternia via magic spell to find himself an evil bride. Danny freaks out when she sees Skeletor, Evil-Lyn, and Beast Man and their casual conversations about trying to put up an evil facade when they are just a bunch of middle management villains. Worse, they know all about Danny's acts of mass murder (grabbing her right as she's giving her big Hitler speech in the finale) and become annoyed when Danny claims she's a good guy. Danny escapes and is rescued by He-Man but quickly Danny tells him all of the bad shit she's done, thinking He-Man will understand. But He-Man finds her to be worse than Skeletor but Man-At-Arms falls for Danny's cute factor (much to Teela's disdain) and convinces He-Man to let him take her home to the royal palace, where Danny becomes the house guest from hell and annoys even the saintly Sorceress.
>>7588468If you want her, just pay the rape price or pray they do another collection pack (which is what I ended up having to do to get Teela, because she was scalpted to hell and back)
>>7588885>Skeletor, Evil-Lyn, and Beast Man and their casual conversations about trying to put up an evil facade when they are just a bunch of middle management villainsFuck that shit. That's why He-Man's a joke franchise. The villains are losers and the main hero's a written byy committee goody-two-shoes who spews morals and crap for babies.
>>7588891The 2000's series was good and make the villains much more legitimately threatening.Nobody watched it though.Some minifigs of the 2000's designs would be cool.
>>7588888>Teela, because she was scalpted to hell and back)Damn, really? She was pretty plentiful at my Wal-Mart. I also later found a bunch at Five Below so I snagged another for parts. This kind of shit is why we should help each other out, everyone probably has different shit in their respective areas.
>>7588891That's precisely why I like He-Man. Skeletor is such a charming and goofy villain, you can't help but love him. It's like Shredder and Krang's odd couple bickering, it made them so much more memorable and likable than if they were just stock evil scheming villains.
>>7588891So go follow a different franchise instead of screaming that He-Man should be changed to make you happy.Actually seeing the massive /pol/ garbage that's gotten into the He-Man fandom as of late has nearly put me off the brand. Bad fandoms taint liking a franchise because you'll be associated with those people if you also like the same thing.
>>7589090In the very early Filmation episodes Skeletor was more of a tyrant and even mentioned his legions of slaves several times. It was several episodes in before they watered him down into Elmer Fudd.This was relatively common in the 80s though-- the GI Joe writers admitted that Cobra Commander was Hitler in the initial miniseries, but later turned him into Yosemite Sam on purpose.
>>7589102This. So, so much this. Friends of mine who want to get (back) info the franchise are automatically directed to the org, take a look around, see what they assume to be the "true" face of the fandom, and nope right the fuck back out. The subreddit may be slow, but at least it's chill, and accepts pretty much any fan, any faction, any era.
>>7588891>That's why He-Man's a joke franchise. The villains are losers and the main hero's a written byy committee goody-two-shoes who spews morals and crap for babies.dig the toy designs but the stories i thought were shite
Since we got to see a GoT set, how soon before we get to see the Ghostbusters slime tubes?
>>7589437whats the link between goy sets and ghostbusters tubes?
>>7587834It took me a second to realize what this pic was, and now I'm kinda sad since it was such a fun line.
>>7589464We learned about both of them just a few hours apart. I'm assuming Mattel will show them off alongside the rest of their offerings this year at sdcc.
>>7588891And the franchise continues to get toys! Jealous?
>>7589587Heroes. At least that's what I got.
>>7589566So with the death of the Heroes line, we have the following MotU cast...Heroic: He-Man, Teela, the Goddess, the Sorceress, Man-At-Arms, Stratos, Moss Man.Evil: Skeletor, Beastman, Faker, Evil-Lyn, Scareglow. Is Red Beast a separate character?
>>7589621No. It's just how he looked in the mini comics
>>7589566WAIT A SECOND does that truly mean the Heroes line is dead and gone? The worst nightmare of getting a Mulder but no Scully is realized, then, unless this new 'Black Series' is going to force us to buy a X-Files Office Set with a Mulder we already have just to get the exclusive Scully. Damn.
>>7589655Feeling the same. Can't have Mulder without Scully FFS
>>7589566>>7589587>>7589600>>7589621>>7589655>>7589666Heroes was a mess of a line, it's very nature made it so figures peg warmed, because people would buy up the best characters, usually the He-Man ones then leave all the ones nobody wants, and then stores would never put out new cases because the shit nobody wants hasn't sold yet. At the Meijer near me they have Futurama ones and a few Star Trek figures, and it's been the same figures for like a year, just sitting on the shelf.MOTU should be it's own line of Mega Construx, and a number of the other properties in Heroes should either have their own lines or one off sets. They should really do more video game properties as full on lines like they're doing with Halo.
>>7589633>No. It's just how he looked in the mini comicsSo with 7 heroes to 5 evil warriors, I'll give Battle Bones to the heroes if I'm lucky enough to get one.Anyone have suggestions for another Mega line's vehicle to appropriate for 5 MotU figures?
>>7589621Why would they cancel the Heroes line? It seemed to sell well enough. Of this latest wave, there is only one Man-At-Arms left at my Walmart.If it truly is over, then I blame Star Trek.
>>7589738I've just had the villains riding breakout beasts.>>7589739If my Walmart's anything to go by, every wave has peg warmed except for whatever was the hottest/shortpacked figures. And the MOTU stuff isn't moving either.
>>7589680To be real with you, after a while I got so desperate I started buying Heroes figures I had little interest in, like the Star Trek ones. They could serve as fodder for customs, they're still great figures, and heck, even if I wasn't a huge Trek fan, I would never say no to a Picard accompanying one of my teams.RIP heroes, you will be missed. It felt like a series that was really full of possibilities, it could contain anything. Now it feels like any venture into a license needs to be this dedicated THING, with full sets and all.
>>7589680Know what's the saddest? They'll never finish the comic Turtles.
>>7589965This honestly makes me feel a little hesitant about buying Donnie. I know it shouldn't, but damn, feels bad to know my team will never be complete.
>>7589965Why wouldn’t they? They created a whole page for the turtles.Also, just because the page isn’t there doesn’t Heroes is gone. The website could be under remodeling or it could be a CoD situation, where for whatever reason they can no longer advertise product on the Heroes line.You people need to chill.
>>7590017Here’s the page for the turtles.
>>7590019Thank god, hopefully we see some turtles stuff at sdcc.
>>7590017>You people need to chill.Dawg, this the Mega general. We're used to doom and gloom around here.
>>7590025I have it on good authority that turtles is gone for good.
>>7590027I told those doomposters they were retards, I was proven right, and here they are back at it again despite Mega being on the motherfucking upswing
>>7589566Remember when they removed Call of Duty from the site and everyone freaked out and then got proven to be dumbasses shortly thereafter? Stop jumping to conclusions
I bought one of those halo blind bags and it was missing a hand, is there anything i can do? The missing parts request center wants a part number and I'm not sure what to put in.
>>7590019>tfw you realize alien is getting full sets
>>7589566Welp guess I better finally grab a Hellboy before it's too late.
>>7590399I'm going to choose not to believe you and keep hoping that we see some.
>>7588387>not buying the set for the dragon
>>7590653Email Mattel cust support directly
Guys Und Panzer
Someone posted this on Facebook:The text description of the second GOT set (from the Mattel website): The threat is real. Jon Snow is determined to capture an Undead Wight beyond the wall, but to do this he must first defeat the Undead Army. As the battle erupts, the Night King watches on, perched atop a ledge from the high ground. The two rivals meet eyes, and at long last, fire and ice are set to clash. Recreate this epic moment and build the intimidating showdown beyond the wall! Ideal for ages 14 and upBuildable ledge setting that separates bitter rivals from their destiny3 highly detailed, super-poseable 2.5-inch micro action figures include Jon Snow, Night King and Undead WightJon Snow figure is equipped with Season 7 northern attireSet and figures come with authentic weapons and accessories
>>7590019>Destiny still thereWhy the fuck do they have to tease us like this.
>>7591394I thought it was based on the battle of winterfell but 3 minis sound cheap as fuck adn we get 2 undeads.
>>7591427I need my Scully. I don't want to have to make one.Also any of the new Heroes seen in Canada?
>>7590399Im going to have to disagree with you on that front based on the fact that they very clearly added tmnt back to the roster >>7590019.With that out of the way, to the tmnt fans on the general, what do you want to see next from the line? I would love to see some tmnt variants. Not just repaints, but different versions of the turtles. The super turtles would be great.
>>7588298>>7588300>80 dollarydoos Jesus this shit is expensive.
>>7591691I'm guessing the other set will be as well.. Single characters or maybe "families" might be good
>>7591691>Jesus this shit is expensive.Indeed...."SHAME!"
>>7591941Well the other set is just a piece of terrain and 3 miniatures, the dragon is way too fucking big for its own good.
>>7591427>>7591477answer his fucking questionwhy is destiny still there? why they teasing?also shout out the the turtles page, its just pictures of fucking donnie
>>7590027>gloom and doomThey should make some Doom sets, or at least figures.
I just thought about how many more MotU figures could be added to Mega with minimal new molds:Prince Adam, duhKing Randor: He-Man with new head, cuirass, capeMer-Man: Skeletor with new head, harness, coral swordStinkor: Mer-Man with same cuirass as MekanekWebstor: Skeletor with new head & backpack/chest armorZodac: Skeletor limbs, Beast Man torso, new head, harness, gunTri-Clops: He-Man with new head, harness, swordNinjor: Skeletor with new head, tunic, weaponsMekanek: He-Man with new head, neck gimmick, cuirassFisto/Jitsu: He-Man with new heads, lower right arms, cuirassesClamp Champ: He-Man with new head & clamp, same cuirass as Fisto
>>7592175>Fisto/Jitsu: He-Man with new heads, lower right arms, cuirasses>Clamp Champ: He-Man with new head & clamp, same cuirass as Fistogot my vote
Breakout beasts has to be the best new ip mega has created.
>>7591483I wanna see the dark turtles and these dudes made
>>7588351Why wouldn't they test with smaller vehicles? Like the sky sleds
>>7592062He is the best Turtle.
>>7592224I don’t know. It’s just a guess based on how they’ve done previous SDCC exclusives.Also, I don’t know if the Sky Sled will get its own release. It’s so small, I feel like it’ll just come with the Battle Ram.
>>7592981I hope Mega releases battlebones outside sdcc, like saladin. Even if it’s a modified version.
>>7589566Fuck mattel, i hope they like loosing another customer
>>7594558Hah, love this. Also suddenly gave me an urge to dust off my 360, maybe I'll do that today.
Still can't find Evil-lyn anywhere except online. Would five below have her?
>>7594637No, don't think so. That wave is quite new and hasn't been spotted at Five Below.
>>7594560heroes line is gone, but now suddenly the fucking x-files has its own page?
>>7592186they seem cleared out in stores. I would have like a chance at the griffen and a dragon. I just have the wolf.
Ah, shit. I just realized I preordered Donatello instead of Stratos on Amazon and now Stratos is running for like triple price by all the resellers. Hope this wave shows up at my Walmart.
>>7595103Maybe it isn't so much that the Heroes line is gone, just that the Heroes line encompasses all these other (potential) lines, and with MotU getting more sets, as well as others potentially getting some, why group them under a banner that's used for minifigures when they can be under their own proper banner.
Dear Mega Brands,May I please have Modulok?
>>7588298>>7588300remember when Megabloks used to make better looking dragons 15 years ago?
>>7595401I and another anon posted about this after the listings went up (pics did not match text listings) but people just seemed to ignore both posts.
>>7595592I went to ask Mega on Twitter about the Heroes line but someone anon already had, and this is Mega's response: No, the Heroes line is not cancelled. We decided to display all the products from the licenses on their own Worlds pages. As licenses cycle in and out of the Heroes assortment, they’ll be listed under their own Worlds icon. See Aliens for example.
It's a huge stretch but if any of you guys have or ever find an EV-38 Laurelbearer Sparrow I'd be happy to pay you for it. Email me if you want to make an offer.
>>7596696Great, hopefully now we can all calm down a bit. That Worlds page of theirs has caused hysteria more than a few times on here. Hopefully we get more 5-packs coming. I've not seen a single wave of single packed Heroes at retail (I'm in Ontario).
>>7596696This goes against the doom narrative.Delete
>>7596696Scully is saved !!!!
>>7596802Where in Ontario are you? You should be able to find some, but never all, at walmart and tru
>>7596708Dude, I have wanted that set for ages. After months of hunting, I finally found one for a "decent" price on eBay--which was still very overpriced, but I figured I wasn't gonna get any better. So I drop like 40 bones and wait eagerly for it to arrive. And the day it gets delivered, I'm at work--and someone steals it off my porch. I know this is what happened cause I had an Amazon delivery that same day (which also got stolen) and they did the photo proof thing. I'm so sad, I lost all that money and now I can't even find any Laurelbearer listings anymore.
>>7597300Sorry anon. Tough break. Mail theft is pretty bad right now. Even I have been hit with lost/stolen packages.
>>7597236GTA area. I've never seen any... maybe I'm just too late? Not once in Walmart, and one badly painted skeletor months and months ago at TRU. And of course it's useless trying to get them online. Even when Amazon had them all listed at 5.99 and I got them preordered, they've all since been cancelled anyways.
>>7597236Not OP but...I've seen the last wave at Real Canadian Superstore... Assassins., Kratos, Hellboy, a bunch of Kirks. Spocks, Fry's and Benders. That's on Steeles in TO
I don't even like MOTU but I want those cream pieces.
FUCKING BUNGIEFAGS MAKE A NEW CONTRACT FOR DESTINY
>>7598363Isn't that more of an Activision thing? I would think we have cowadoody sets because of a publisher deal with mega, not a developer deal.It would be a matter of what kind of agreement Bungo made with Acti regarding merchandise.
>>7598784>Isn't that more of an Activision thing?They buyout from activision a few months ago, now the game is alive and back to over a million players.
Is there a mega construx oriented discord server?
>>7599977Here. It's mostly a few Instagram guys. But all about mega construx. >https://discord.gg/yka5Qxc
>>7600030Now kids, remember to not throw out your megas! Never know when you may need to fight that cancer out your ass!
Any guesses on what the third Mega MotU vehicle will be? (I count everything rideable as a vehicle except the cats, which I expect are high priority.)
