Maybe. I have to imagine that these are pretty high-margin items, since they don't have to pay license fees, no artwork fees, and especially if they're using any of the old tooling. Also, I think being a pulse exclusive line it could last longer than any WM line since hasbro isn't depending on retailer support for the o-rings like it did the "retro" figures. Assuming demand holds, it's hard to imagine anything easier and more lucrative-per-unit than reissuing existing items from an in-house property via your own online channel.
Production delays are just that, but I don't think it really reduces demand unless everything appears at once and stretches the people living check-to-check (who probably shouldn't be buying toys).
As long as people buy them, they'll keep it going for a while... but the whole endeavor is just a couple of poor figure choices away from cancellation. As soon as the novelty wears off and they put out a couple of duds, the price-point will be the death of it, IMO. It's just too high for a casual purchase.
Yeah, SE's right hand was the worst of the bunch b/c it's tough to get the gun to point in a reasonable direction. I might even dare to take an exact-o to it if I can determine exactly what I could trim to make the gun sit level.Once I get Duke and a few Cobra troopers, I’ll be good to go once the Skystriker arrives. Really do not need much, but I’ll certainly buy 2pks if they feed them to us in a quarterly fashion.
I totally agree on the hands especially with SE’s right being molded at a tilt. You have to position him arm all wonky to get the Uzi to point level, but I still prefer the soft arms.
These things are far inferior modern Joes (which are a joke compared to JoyToy), but boy does that nostalgia hit carry a weight nothing modern ever could. Like with Transformers, less is sometimes better for actual play, not display.
