I've gotten these figures at half price or less and they still aren't worth it. Every Joe Ultimates figure I've gotten has had quality control issues. Mostly loose joints, especially with Lady Jaye whose torso and legs were downright wobbly, but also a Baroness with her glasses glued on crooked.

Awe man, I am sorry to hear that. That sucks.

In my opinion: If this hadn't been the 4th Baroness, the previous Lady Jaye being so awful that it looks like its made of Birthday Candle and well Scarlett just came out......It wouldn't have failed in say another 7-8 lineups. By then people would have been well past these characters. I mean Baroness has been like Skittles from Super7.

Yeah I mean also there already was a Blue Baroness, so another one that only has a few additional perks probably wasn't going to fly off shelves to begin with, and yes feels like Lady Jaye & Scarlett did get released not terribly long ago themselves, and pretty sure Lady Jaye was on sale at some point somewhere, this wave was just destined to flop, it was too much of the same, and it's not like a B.A.T. where color variants are wanted for army building, pretty sure army building Baroness is kinda not most peoples jams.

I mean i am sure that he might have some stats that show some evidence, but also I think it's more so character choice, for instance Wonder Woman is always going to be a big seller, but is White Rabbit going to be? no, I think it's not about female vs male character, it's about the popularity of the character, and like I said this was totally not a desired wave because it was re-paints, I know if I collected this line I'd have passed on these figures, since I would only be buying 1 version of each character.

Maybe McFarlane is right and he is more right that all the other players in the business?

Yeah it actually really makes me sad I was right, I wanted to be wrong here, and we could see the female action figure triumph like a champion, showing the world "they do sell!" , but this round it was a knock down, but I would say it isn't because it's an all female wave, more so that it's a re-paint wave, if this had been 3 new female characters, likely a different story.

always get a bit of a bummer vibe when I see Super7 cancel figures or waves, because I know somebody just sighed and looked sad at their computer screen for a second when they realized that they were not going to be getting a figure they hoped for.

Well, too bad for this to happen so Super 7 will readjust and do a better offering for us fans to get engaged on their next wave.?

I kinda saw this coming. I even mentioned it when this wave was first announced. I remember thinking the timing was funny because I read this waves line-up the same day Super7 announced that they had lost the Disney license. Funny because Disney is very female-centric with their movies, especially Star Wars and Marvel, these days, and this felt like a very Disney-esque wave of nothing but three female characters.

I have admired these figures from afar for a long time because of the pricing, but I finally found a Cobra Commander and SDCC (?) exclusive B.A.T for $25 each at Walmart, so I bit on old CC. Needless to say (to anyone who owns any of these), all of the joints were so loose, especially the torso and ankles, that I can't even get him to stand up straight without leaning him against something.

$25 seemed like a steal at the time, but if I had collected the entire line, and had paid the full $55 each for them, I would have probably run out into oncoming rush hour traffic by now.

People talk about this as though it's news. Didn't anyone collect Super7's MOTUC figures? Super7 is synonymous with poor quality control and cutting corners. It's what they do. It's a feature of their figures, not a bug.
