I am correct that no Figures rep visits or posts on this forum?

So far no one from that Co. has ever identified themselves and posted here, that I can recall. Tho if you read some prior posts about Mattel Retro-Action you can see why.

They seem to have been reading the forums because the Batman `66 figures are what people here have been pining for over the years. Whether that will translate into mass-market, sustainable sales, remains to be seen.

It takes a pretty thick skin to post here and deal with all the criticism and nit-picking. I think the fact the Paul and Jason are so level headed is amazing. However, I'm sure CTVT reads the forums so our voices are still heard.

We can always use another sub forum.

Welcome aboard guys!

Agreed.

It is smart business as well, methinks.

They have lots of contact information at their site. Perhaps an invite to this new sub forum is in order. This really feels monumental... A new era.

I'm hoping for good reviews when the figs become available.

The Conan is looking promising.

Excellent idea and well deserved.

The Tarazan prototype looks of the rivet variety(type 1) and the write up describes it as exact replica of mego original Tarazan.
I am a type 2 man myself; however' alot of people here prefer the one's so this is gearing up for a very interesting summer!!!

I'm guessing the "prototype" Tarzan pictured is an actual Mego T1 Tarzan. I'd be very surprised if they end up making a repro of the T1 body. A vintage T1 Tarzan was probably just easier to track down for photos than a T2 one.

Much easier to track down. Not a lot of t2 tarzans out there. Tho they could have just put the head and costume onto one of their bodies and saved some confusion. I'd go with it was easier to photograph a vintage mego and call it a prototype

This is what I was thinking as well but it will be interesting to see how it unfolds.

Great! We'll see Figures news here first! So much easier than re-Mego. And w/ all the new stuff coming out, they really deserve it!

If you can't take some criticism, you shouldn't be making products. Trust me, sometimes it's hard not to rage
at some thoughtless comment, but in the long run, it's just counter productive.
