    No seriously, I kicked Wolfman in the nards.
  1. That was the last con held by 3H before they went bankrupt. If they had anything, it was probably given to Hasbro during the license pulling procedure. At most, you can hope for somebody who was there to upload any footage. Personally, I'd like to see that script reading again. Had a lot of fun at that one.

    Yeah, they've sent out emails and addressed it in the club magazine. I'm just being patient, I mean, I'll get mine, or at worst get a refund if the deal falls through.
  3. I'd be all over that like white on rice.
  4. I know man, it seems ridiculous, but McDonalds would have to pay more to do something like that. And lets face it, when was the last time they offered retail toys in the kids meals? Best I can remember is early-mid 80's when they had a Hot Wheels promotion. And even now they don't use retail Hot Wheels, which are dollar toys.
  5. I love Kre-O and I admit these tickle my fancy. The timing of them is odd though. If they have stuff like alternate heads and parts, these could indeed be interesting for customs.
  6. That's pretty darn spiffy.

    Transformers Legends

    Waiting for the iOS version myself. I downloaded it for my phone, but it just won't launch. So, I'm just waiting to play it on my iPad.

    Yeah, you were a member when you started the subscription. So, you should have no problem until the next year.
  9. Nope. McDonalds would then have to license the molds for use in America and other countries, then have them safety tested for the different market. The easier and cheaper route for a toy that comes in a cheap meal was the cheapo solution, cheap figurines that look like the characters. Not to mention, let's face it, do you think the fast food company even knows about the Microns? They license the name and likeness of a popular boys brand. The bulk of the research probably doesn't extend beyond a license package. Which is going by the old G2 ones I looked through, didn't include anything past basic presentation and cast of characters in the US.
  10. Thats prolly the biggest cost put towards these.
  11. I like the Mad Max stuff, but only for preferring the non realistic vehicle thing. A friend suggested the popularity of Fallout and Borderlands for look of the hunting bots. Not sure how correct that is, but its a start I guess.
  12. Why pick a good idea when you can cheap out... Because it would require McDonald's to license molds from another country, which wouldn't fit their pricing structure. Remember they license and have the toys produced for these meals,not Hasbro. Personally I'd really like to see the Microns come over here as well, but it would probably be through a alternate outlet similar to the blind packed ones in the UK. Which would be perfect for those toys and this market. Has/Tak shouldnt have to licence their own products, only Makky-d's would... Right, MCPoop would have to if they chose to do it in their own happy meals. If a licensee was to do it, they would have to pony up the funds.
