I guess this is a style people are into. I dunno, most of these vintage style toys do nothing for me. When I was a kid I was always annoyed that my He-Mans couldn't bend at the knee or elbow, so why would I want them now?

Here's a couple photos from Toyark's DST gallaries:

There's a few more, but I don't think anything else had anything we hadn't seen before. I know the NBX 'mates aren't new, but I don't think we had seen them in the package before.

I think the most I marked out for the vintage inspired toys were the Loyal Subjects MOTU And Thundercats releases. And I only really bought He-Man, Skeletor, Lion-o and Mumm-Ra. If I still had some MOTU classic figs these and the similar styled Horror movie characters might be a fun addition.

That's the first I've seen The Predator set packaged. With all that content I'm a little compelled to buy two just for the alternate looks.

My understanding is I’m still livid regardless the size 😂 any time I see DC products that aren’t minimates I get very annoyed.

I'm a little disappointed, KH series 3 and Sonic series 2 seem to consist of figures that were designed when they were first protoyping the lines at shows. I'm hoping the panel has something new, as I'm getting pretty fatigued with each wave just being variants of the same characters.

Is anyone going to the panel?

I got to go Thursday and Friday, first time I've been since 2012. It was a lot of fun, good to see Zach again. I got to meet ROB PAULSEN!

Anyway, I picked up 4 of the bats if anyone needs one.

Soooo unless I missed it nothing new was really said at NYCC. Should we get the prayer circle together?

Kind of feels that way doesn't it? Maybe we'll get some Bruce Lee 'mates?

Is Toy Fair in Feb the next chance we have at future releases?

Do you mean, is that the next show where we might see something? Yes, but DST stopped using cons and trade shows as the main place to show off new products ages ago. We hear much more about new 'mates through press releases and Previews solicitations than shows these days. Which is probably smart, since those shows are dominated by the big companies.

Won't Series 77 be Avengers 4? I know DST has been offering 4-packs to specialty retailers instead of 8-figure movie waves but in the absence of TRU, I wouldn't be surprised to see that change.

If 77 ends up being Avengers that's a big gap in LCS comic waves.

True. Series 76 hits next week. Seems like there's plenty of time for a Daredevil assortment. 😎
