I checked my WM this morning, and the only mega thing I found was some old Halo bags. Still waiting on the carded MOTU figures to show up. Seems like CA & TX got them first. But it's definitely positive that Mega has found it's way back into WM.
Though I'd say it's more.. xenophobic? Is there a world when you don't like people because of their culture alone, not race? It's like little Mexico over there, and no one speaks English and it's dirty. So of course I don't like going there. I don't not-like-them because they're Hispanic or Brown or anything.
Probably falls under some form of xeno. I know I’m that way about urban culture, from Manhattan to Compton. I don’t mind people speak the languages of other countries... in other countries. I do get annoyed when parts of the US become Englishless or even English challenged.
I visited my local WM and hit the jackpot. Lanard ALIENS, Mega Construx ALIENS eggs, some sort of "IT" head in a balloon....and the SW area STILL SUCKS. I haven't bought this many toys at once, at one store, in years. And what is it with just about every toy now being put in a container/bag with slime? The ALIENS egg and IT head come with this, that stuff is horrible to get rid of.
Anyway.....I now I said I doubted I'd get one of these eggs, but it was there, I was there, our eyes met....etc. MC....PLEASE make more ALIENS stuff!
P.S. The multi colored figures remind me of what ReAction is doing with their alien figures. I guess it makes sense since they are both dealing with collectors.
Many people have been saying just this....why aim THIS property at kids NOW? Who knows. Why did Kenner do the very same thing back in 1993? Even at that point, the property was almost ten years old, the demographic they were aiming at hadn't even been BORN when the movie originally hit theaters. But of course the difference now is, you can't swing a dead cat without hitting some sort of ALIENS themed item. Maybe Lanard is just trying to ride the wave and cash in on the success. I would question why MC has run with the property, but the people who collect those figures are probably of an age that are old enough to remember having seen the movie in the first place.
