    I feel sorry for everyone who is so angry at this decision by MMC to make an obscure character a con exclusive and then available online afterwards. Don't support MMC/boycott them because....you're....too lazy to order it online?

    I am completely confused here. I just see a lot of unwarranted bitching.

    I guess it is confusing how things unfold. Like, to be told it's a convention exclusive, post your disappointment, only to hear it might be available online several hours later, after said post has been made.

    But then, never let things like sequence of events or the concept of time get in the way of your posts :)

    6 posts before your post about less money for mmc.

    Yes - being informed before overreacting
    No - taking time to become informed

    Conclusion: unwarranted bitching

    Nothing personal against anyone. Mmc posted shortly after this broke, many times on their facebook, that it woukd be availabke from retailers such as psx. The mock outrage kept going after that.

    I don't really collect much in 3P anymore.. But if I can get this at a reasonable price, I'll get it. If not, then not a huge deal.

    I think I will probably be in for it, but I also just bought the Marvel infinity version from hasbrotoyshop for $4 shipped. I don't even have any idea what this character did.

    Anyone else thinking there will be a blue variant in the future? Maybe that will be the retail release?

    I wonder if the vehicle mode will have storage for the weapons.

    Any updates on getting this at tfcon? Is it going to be first come first serve or something that can be ordered and picked up at tfcon like nero rex?
    I need to know if I need to fund a friend to be my point of purchase! :)

    Probably just like all other MMC Reformatted TFcon exclusives: Limit 1, first come first serve

    Per MMC's facebook page, it will be available at the MMC booth at TFCon Chicago and online which likely means via PSX.

    I was going to say something similar. This is a great little story. Well done MMC.

    Best comic to date.

    Freelance Peacekeeping Agent, Yes? Would have been better if they'd gotten Furman to write it, just as a nod, maybe?

    1) no bones about it, Death's Head
    2) kinda tempting the Mouse...

    No, this is "Anubis", Death's Head is the guy on the shelf behind his right arm...

    [​IMG]

    It's on the shelf above the one with the 7th doctor's unbrella on it, and a Stetson hat, and a scarf...

    ANUBIS HAS BEEN DOCTOR HUNTING!

    Even if MMC were to ask him, and he'd agreed to write it and was credited, he'd put himself at risk of being blackballed by IDW and Marvel for future work.

    If he used a pseudonym, then nobody reading would really know he wrote it, either. Kind of a no-win.

    Written by Hector Sigma and Marty McPrime? Forgive me, but those sames sound made up.

    Marty McPrime seems to be a Back to the Future reference... oh yes, here it is..
