« on: February 1, 2013, 01:49 PM »
Looks like Super Hero Hype released some sneak peek pictures of some of the upcoming Man of Steel merchandise. Looks pretty good.

These showed up in force at Wally World in Iowa today. No Movie Masters yet but the rest of it. The $6 range seems a bit better quality wise than TDKR, with some added elbow articulation and better paint apps so far as I saw. Zod is of course, 1 per case of these.

Not sure if it needs its own thread but found the movie masters today at Walmart. Wasn't going to pick them up, but bought Superman and Jor-El.

I saw these figures at Walmart too but couldn't find an Ursa so who cares.

saw these for the first time at wally, basic figures look sorta cool but keeping with the 'new less articulated' "action figures" I easily passed. they did have ONE of the movie masters Supes, and can't say I was totally impressed - I'm still NOT digging the redesigned suit, looks too much like spiderman's basketball material.

I think we have a new runaway 2013 Champion of Pegwarmicity.  Man of Steel toys seem to be selling at a pace not seen since Batman last year...ouch

I'd classify them somewhere around POTC status.  Between this and Iron Man 3 (already on clearance), I hope someone is getting the clue that unarticulated crap figures are not what kids or collectors really want.

Yeah they're pretty dead. The MM figures are not in the reset at Target and finding any of the newer pieces is probably going to be hard. Did see a Faora at Chicago Comic Con. $35.  Nope.

Yeah, these sure seem dead in the water.  I can't say I've paid super close attention to them since the first couple weeks, but I can't say much of it is moving.  Even the Movie Masters has primarily been pegs full of Zods for awhile now.  Never saw Faora either, but did grab the regular Supes and armored Zod.
