    Cory had that white ninja on his shelf in his interview the other night. I haven’t seen anyone enhance it but it could be just a very white test shot of the movie figure. Hard to believe we’ve had a line going this long without a proper Storm Shadow. Maybe they can speed up the process since the movie is an unmitigated disaster. Key point, one of the local Targets has the movie wave pegwarming for 4 days now.

    It’s amazing how quickly some toys fail. Space jam toys are already clearanced at tjmaxx.

    My Target is resetting. The only thing hanging around is a Field Roadblock.

    This. I’ll take that head but I’m also hoping for a Fred head with the armour or when they do a Crimson Guardsmen including it with him. I bought so many of those comic packs back in the day. It would also make for a nice unmasked Cobra Commander too. My local Wally had a glut of Marvel Legends hit the pegs the other night, like 9 cases of the recent ones. I guess they’ve been sitting on a pallet in back for a bit and they finally got around to stocking. I was looking at the Disney+ wave Loki for nice potential used car salesman CC from some of the flashbacks from the Hama run where he first formed Cobra. Since the hoods a no no, the Zemo masked head might make do for now.

    I actually don't know why sometimes movie toys stick around as long as they do (unless they are waiting around for the physical release or something). I mean I liked Shazam but who was going to buy those toys six months later?

    Are all of the movie Snake Eyes wave even out?

    I missed this interview, so thanks for pointing it out! A lot of good info in it on how the brand is being handled and the decisions being made. The Zartan color-change explanation was interesting to hear.

    Do you have a link to that interview (or at least the search terms I might use to locate it)?

    Doesn't surprise me. Kids today probably don't even know Looney Tunes. I can't remember the last time I saw it broadcast on my TV or if it's even allowed on TV anymore because of the terrible violence.
    And the first Space Jam movie bombed. Which makes me wonder why they even made a sequel.

    That being said - please don't let the Joe stuff fail 'cause I'm still waiting for a 6inch scale Sunbow Snake-eyes and Shipwreck. :)
