Ive put them on my netflix queue but I always seem to bypass them whenever looking to watch a show of something.. but then again thats kind of how i am with all the stuff on my queue, vague interest.

Ive done that kind of thingas well, from time to time... I always sort of stockpile different interests and curiosities, that will then gather the proverbial dust, even when Im looking for something to watch, lol.

I tend to hear both sides of the spectrum, on the DC TV stuff... Some folks really love it, others equally could care less about it. Were it more readily available to me, and I had the time away from my mass anime consumption, lol, Id probably have tried to watch them a bit more, here and there. But, what I have seen has struck me that way, too. Ive liked it, to a point, or not very much, and in either event, gravitated away from it.

DC just needs better direction in just about every aspect that they put out. Movies and figures in particular. Im assuming their TV stuff is going well since the shows are still going on. I personally liked them at first but got bored with them within a season or 2. Apparently other people have not.

Thats chiefly what I think it boils down to, sadly... Theyve got all the potential in the world, going for them. And, more often than not, they dont seem to know what to actuallydowith it.

They have great characters they just dont know how to utilize them to appeal to the marvel crowd. We need another Justice League Unlimited and not Teen Titans GO!.

Yea, thats the kind of stuff I mean... As well as Ill hear that theyre fairly communicative via Twitter and that kind of stuff.

Up until now, uniformity in the Multiverse line has been nonexistent... Thats for damn sure. And, up until some of these latest waves, I havent seen anything that really got up my excitement in a long time. I think the turnaround of interest for me began when the put out the 90s TV Flash figure. (Which I still need to get).Then I began to take notice again. Ive always leaned much more toward DC than anything else, with Marvel being a close second. So, I see the characters they showed off at SDCC, which look like theyre finally going to commit to some level of conformity in the style and design of their upcoming waves, and Im honestly impressed. They have a long way to go, to ever hope to match the ML line, but Im still hoping that theyve improved their game. As a fan of their properties, thats all I can do.

Ive always been a fan of the Four Horsemens work and the DCU Classics always impressed me. The one thing about them tho is their articulation is limited and now kind of dated. The articulation they have doesnt allow for any real poses and most are just standing half the time. The sad part is they also kept that trend with the Multiverse figs. So they are already obsolete before they even warm the pegs. The focus far too much on the tv shows and the movie stuff. That is not their strong suit with these figs. They look so off and drab and boring. I havent seen a new wave of theirs since I want to say the clayface one actually. The live action stuff has never interested me even in the legends lines. DC has always been second for me but I do enjoy what they have. They have great characters they just dont know how to utilize them to appeal to the marvel crowd. We need another Justice League Unlimited and not Teen Titans GO!.

I have followed their convention appearances and announcements tho. Like JayC and Shart talking to Dwight about upcoming announcements and the like. Those are great and I think back in toybiz day we didnt have as integrated of an internet as we do now. We didnt get recorded interviews at cons like it is now.

I love DC but most of their characters they put out in multiverse dont work for big sellers. Also alot of the figures seem like they are from different lines when they are supposed to be from the same one. Too many art styles, too many different articulation sculpts. Ive not been impressed with that line. Its been kind of a joke IMO..

I more so meant the communication via social media that Hasbro and other such companies have, with their consumers. They, as well as other companies, have made much more efforts to speak directly to the consumers to gauge interest in certain products and the overall directions they might take their lines. Back during Toy Bizs reign, I dont think that was something nearly as readily available, if it was at all. Is basically what I meant to say.

The interesting thing is, Ive been seeing those First Ten Years Marvel Legends sets, with that slightly higher price point, suffering a lot in the way of QC and overall cheap plastic issues, with the articulation and joints. I think, before they go upping that price point, even on such exclusive sets, they might first want to make sure theyre keeping the production of such products at a roundabout status quo. For people like myself, who saw those preview images of some of those sets, to now see that they might not actually be worth it, is kind of a downer.

I agree, regarding the DCUC figures my old Hal Jordan Green Lantern has that same white residue on him, every time I bring him out of storage but, Im hopeful that, based on what Mattel showcased at SDCC, the Multiverse line is finally going to have improved to the point that their product can stand toe to tow, if not with Hasbro, at least DC Collectibles, in scale and approximate quality.

Ive never followed anything that Hasbros said on social media so I have no idea how they are on it. I have followed their convention appearances and announcements tho. Like JayC and Shart talking to Dwight about upcoming announcements and the like. Those are great and I think back in toybiz day we didnt have as integrated of an internet as we do now. We didnt get recorded interviews at cons like it is now. When Toybiz was around the only way I found out about new toys was ToyFare magazine and maybe some rumors on the net.

Whenever anything is mass produced, youre going to get QC issues. Thats why imports and things like that arent as crazy with QC imports. They are very limited in releases most of the time. I dont buy any of the MCU stuff so I havent noticed anything. The plastic and for the most part the QC stuff on my comic hasbro stuff is just fine. Ive had a few off things but nothing too crazy. From what Ive seen tho most people are good with the MCU sets. I havent seen anything crazy on the fb ml group im in with reports of qc issues. Its actually more so talked about with the comic figs more than anything.

I ll tell you a great way to get rid of it is to buy a standard tooth brush and brush it off. It gets rid of it. However I dont know if its permanently or temporary as I do it to clean off the figures im going to sell on ebay. I dont have any of my DCUC stuff out on display so I dont ever notice it until its time to sell stuff. Everything ive seen with the multiverse like is just ugly to me. Sure some of the CnCs are neat like turd Clayface and the Doomsday but everything thats in the waves just looks awful. Also too much mixture of DCU stuff. If marvel did that Id never buy as many BAFs as I do. Its going to need alooooot to be able to compete with Legends. At least to me.

Also alot of the figures seem like they are from different lines when they are supposed to be from the same one. Too many art styles, too many different articulation sculpts.

If you are referring to 3D technology and printing, that wasnt a thing at all during their run. Its relatively new technology thats been used in production in companies since I want to say 2012 or so but with huge results. I dont think Hasbro even integrated it until probably 2015 or so. The other thing that was harder for Toybiz is their plastic quality started to really deteriorate during their last few waves due to higher cost of oil to produce the plastic due to the war going on at the time. Hasbro I believe does not have this concern and they definitely have a much higher quality of plastics since they dont rely on much paint applications and more so on the actual plastics themselves.

$20 for a figure nowadays is essentially the main price point. Go lower and its a kids toy, go higher and its a high grade adult toy. That price point fits marvel legends as its geared towards adults but also great for kids. The only reason they have upped the MCU based figures is one they are all unique molds, two they used scanning technology to get likenesses down and three the current stuff is all focused as their own series outside of marvel legends. It will be really interesting to see if they up the pricing on the half wave of MCU in a wave with comic based figs. Also that DC multiverse line is atrocious. I loved DCUC figs until i took them out of storage and saw their plastics are the worst crap ever with white residue all over them. Its like their plastics sweat or something.. really cheap. They couldnt compete with SHF or Mafex. Those arent widely distributed figures. Thats like saying Hasbro is competing with Storm collectibles. Totally different ballgames and areas. Hasbros stuff is in just about every crack where toys are sold. I dont think ive ever seen an SHF or Storm figure outside of a webpage.

I dont think that was something as readily available to Toy Biz, back in the day. And, unfortunately, even in spite of which, because the market keeps demanding higher, competitiveprice points, that too is going to bea part of their ever-changing directive.

I feel like, even on my budget, $20 is a roundabout, decent price point, for what we tend to get for it. Whether its Marvel Legends, Star Wars Black Series, or the better examples of the DC Multiverse line. Anything more, and it starts to become counterintuitive, I think. But, I can also see their reasoning, looking at similarly scaled, higher end imports like SHF and Mafex. Which they may think of as something theyre actually competing with. And, to hear most toy reviewers tell it, they are all kind of lumped into the same, comparative category, that way. But yea, I reallyhope these figures stay within that $20 price point. Because, if they dont, even those will start to be less and less available to me.
