    Thought I’d post this if you want to buy in person. Came across these at an FYE in Ft. Wayne, IN. Didn’t purchase as I already have them. But if you want any of these and would like to see them first, looks like FYE is the place to go. 6193CFAA-A69C-49F5-88BE-49B499AC5B28.jpeg 52AFA9B7-2A1F-4266-B47C-C49714F08E8B.jpeg

    Newbury Comics had the 3 3/4" figures for a few weeks now.

    FYE ?? That place still exists ??? They closed up shop almost 10 years ago in South Florida location in a mall in Broward. Used to have the best selection of underground label rap and hip hop CDs. I knew they had a bunch of pop culture movie type stuff in the back of the store but I never really explored. I was only collecting CDs at the time before Michael Bay made me revisit Transformers as an adult. Nice to see they are still around somewhere in middle America. Oh yeah, hell no on the action masters lol.

    WHAT! Holy crap, my wife works there. She gets 40% off, even on top of sale prices! I didn't even know they carried these figs.

    Thank you

    That Iron Maiden Aces High figure is the only thing interesting to me. I used to be a huge Maiden fan before they started to suck.

    I had no idea these were a thing.

    Man that's a bit pricier compared to the other select stuff.

    Oh cool, more of these shitty money-grabbing drivel.

    Yeah, everything at FYE is marked up like that. Marvel Legends are closer to $30 for example.

    I try not to slam other hobbies, but I really don't see the appeal of these. "Retro" figures are, at best, a novelty, but when the figures in question aren't even what the toys looked like back then I just don't understand.

    I feel similarly to these as I do with Funko, it's all just slightly altering the same little key endlessly. Big fan of the band Ghost, for example. They put out their first album in 2010, only 10 years ago, yet there are Papa Emeritus "ReAction" figures mindlessly trying to cash in on a nostalgic style by these same Super7 jokes.

    I know this is a forum for a giant fucking toy gimmick, but c'mon...

    If these things weren\'t 18 bucks I\'d love to pick up at least one or two, but at 18 they\'re absolutely worthless. 

    If Super7 had any artistic integrity though they\'d have made these like Action Masters, but they\'re just Funko for action figures, it seems.

    As much as I keep coming back to threads to look at all these, I also keep going into my TF room and seeing Mighty Muggs, Robot Heroes, and a big box of Kreo. Still kinda neat, just not $18 neat. 50% off sale may get my attention.
