They would do better just putting out Pursuit of Cobra re-releases and killing the secondary market mark-up, lol.


If they had any regard for the opinions of people buying the products this is where they would have gone with the line. I and everyone are assuming these are going to be like the Fortnite figures, but it could be they are not going to use any of those parts at all. 10 days till toy fair, im counting it down every day now because i want to know what is happening with this. Personally if they made Shipwreck and it looked awesome i would buy one to keep on card. Having sold almost all of my modern era figures i wouldn't buy any of these new guys to open.

Correct. They had us with the new modern era figures for a while, then yanked the rug out.

As much as I like O-rings, there are times BlackMajor sells around 150-250 figures in a specific paint scheme. Hasbro or Jazzwares would never invest in that size of a niche.
I'm wondering how well the figures would be received if they were on quality vintage style cards on various paint decos.

If I could pick up a blackmajor figure on a card at Walmart for $12 while grocery shopping, I know I would. But not sure about kids...

Honestly I'd prefer to pick up black major figures at wall mart, I'd have tons if that was possible. With the jazwares guys I'm betting fortnight construction wize. So kiss the leg screws good bye! I'd get a v2 stormy like I said but I'm going to keep any I get moc any way. And keep waiting for eels and future black major projects I need figs on trees. Still have tons of rivets.

Proto, do you have a vintage SS v2 MOC? I think that is the only vintage figure I kept MOC. He's in a star case then inside another box where light can't reach him, lol... Sometimes I look at him and dust off the outer star case.

My brother was smarter than me. He knew he was wearing his figures out so he snagged a few key extra figures to keep MOC in case his original loose ones became to beaten up way back in the 80's.

Feel free to drool...
