Not to pick on you personally, Jeff (I know you're a Green Lantern fan), but the movie figure line for Green Lantern? OMG, what a bomb!
Hey, I don't work for Mattel or I could have told them they were headed for trouble.
The GL line was a perfect example of way over-producing. They had the 7" BAF stuff for their core 7" collectors, the gimmicky 3.75" stuff for the kids, and a "trying to please kids and collectors" 3.75" basic figure line, which featured tons of GLC figures that kids didn't care about and no real bad guy to fight. Also, those tons of GLC figures were based on movie re-interpretations/versions that comic-readers didn't really like and they had crappy 5-POA that the average 3.75" adult collectors thought was lame.
Excellent example of trying to serve too many masters (aka throw a bunch of stuff at the wall and see what sticks). It's kind of that way with Bridge Directs' Hobbit stuff. Some 3.75", some 7". Trying to hit all three markets (kids, 3.75" collectors, 7" collectors), but never satisfying any because it's too spread out.
