Why drag up a thread from feb?

I just dont get people like you.

Agreed...it's very annoying. I saw the headline and thought maybe there was more news on SDCC.

But hell, as long as this ancient thread has been resurrected for now, is anyone else abso-frickin'-lutely sick of convention exclusives? It's really gotten out of hand, with every company busting out some of their best stuff for an audience of like 1% of the actual buying public.

And 95% of whatever they sell there just ends up on eBay anyway, where the already inflated 'exclusive' price gets jacked up even more. I assume fattening up the secondary market is probably their intent anyway.

Contrary to above, it seems the SDCC Fin Fang Foom will be a giant box of all 8 single carded Hulk Legends in a custom box with custom art. Now that's one badass convention haul.

Really happy to hear that smc is coming back.I hope they look as good as the original smc,cause those were in my opinion the best figs released.

will the SMC line still be in 6-inches? if so, that's really great news... it would mean plenty more characters would be made, and making ML focus on the avengers and the x-teams characters...

as great as what hasbro has shown in the toyfare, i don't know why some peeps still bash them... maybe these are the fanboys that OAFE has been cursing all over their ML reviews...

hehe...that's yo go re's thing. Apparently, every review must include a derogatory reference to fanboys. I think they haunt his sleep.

he really hates them to death... and it's fun for the readers.
