  1. This is amazing! I can’t wait to see the full lineup, but these look so freaking incredible!!!
  2. I’m also going to say Stingray, but it was a close call between him and Paladin
  3. Dangit. I was planning to skip this and save some stress on my wallet… but now I can’t justify the hole my collection will have if I don’t get these alternate tampos. “it’s own need to be collected” indeed
  4. the mechanic is essentially an extended superhero team up battle. The gameplay is more or less determined by the villain’s movements and master plan (each villain has a different objective). The heroes act in response to the villain’s objective and try to strategize a preemptive effort to prevent the villain from monopolizing the board and achieving their master plan. It involves defeating thugs and mini bosses, as well as rescuing civilians and utilizing special abilities. It’s built around a co-op dynamic that allows each player to mirror the move/action of the player who went previously, and motivates all the players to talk through how they want to conceive each move as a group, since each action directly affects not only the overall objective but also the next player’s turn. It’s really fun *with the right people* and yeah, I wouldn’t recommend pledging for the biggest expansion unless you were REALLY into it. The base game (which I picked up at Walmart for $28) is enough for the average player.
  5. I picked up the base game on a whim a couple months ago, thinking this would be a fun game to play with certain friends. I forgot all about it until I saw this post. Knowing that the latest Kickstarter was ending soon, it finally motivated me to give the game a go. This is a legitimately fun experience with a unique game mechanic (well, it’s new to me at least), and it totally sold me on backing the latest Kickstarter expansion. If you’re into co-op tabletop games, I recommend this one
  6. Nicely done! I enjoy the TMNT mates that we got, but seeing your customs really makes me wish the official versions had sculpted heads
  7. Man what a killer job on that face. You really nailed his expression
  8. I also want to echo this. I’m not even a real ‘Joe fan, but if you give me reason to look forward to more sets, I will preorder them all
  9. I’m feeling this one, for sure. Though, I’m still bummed over Silver Sable getting cut. Zach, I don’t suppose you know if there’s any plan to find a spot for her in a different wave somewhere down the line...? I might be alone on this one but I’ve been wanting an update of her for a while now
  10. Episode 8 spoilers: It would be great to have some classic comic tie-in 'mates inspired by what this show has introduced
  11. A tie-in set for this show would be a great opportunity for a new release of some AIM soldiers ...
  12. I love that lineup. It gets me too excited thinking about it... and that is all just from MMPR. There is potential for years worth of releases if they start dipping into the subsequent PR incarnations. I’m just wincing a bit at the potential of a repeat of what happened to Sonic or the Star Trek Legacy line...
  13. Agreed, for the same reason. also, the helmet designs really need the benefit of that rounded forehead space if they’re going to sell the whole ‘this is a dinosaur head’ motif...
  14. Beast Wars was my introduction to the Transformers franchise. The Cheetor transmetal 2 figure was one of my favorite toys ever... I’d flip if DST made it that far with their TF releases
  15. This is indeed a big deal for DST! These designs look slick, and hopefully this launches a huge line that does well for ‘mates as a whole I’m eager to see the GI Joe mates... and like others, I am cautiously optimistic of what else might come if these do well. I’d be in cloud 9 if we got MMPR...
  16. funkguerilla’s blender assessment is spot on 👌 I kinda like it but not as a Spidey suit. But still, I always enjoy it when he gets a fresh look. Even with the weird alien vibe the mask is giving off... I’d definitely be down for a mate of this design
  17. Plus it was a figure that had already been planned for production in the main wave, so there was no need to tool any new pieces or tampos. They were just extending the production numbers, as opposed to creating a whole new figure with additional costs that needed to be offset
  18. Yeah, I tried it. Unfortunately, it looks too off to really work
  19. I was 8 years old. Probably the target demographic... I was enthralled with it at the time, and all of my friends would talk about each episode for the whole week at school. We didn’t understand that it was low quality, we just loved the characters and all of their super powers. I haven’t watched it since. I actively avoid it and just hold on to the nostalgia and the feeling of it being cool to me as a kid. I made the mistake of rewatching Hook a few years back and left that viewing feeling a small gut punch over the fact that I couldn’t trust my childhood memories of it being this epic movie experience. I’d prefer not to experience that disappointment with the X-Men cartoon as well 😅
  20. It’s a wrap! The challenge was a whole lot of fun, and it was incredible to see all the participation. A lot of people put in their A Game to create some really cool photos and artwork. I was really surprised to see how much excitement the challenge generated!
