Just sold my Joemobile Batmobile on eBay. At 28.5" long it's about the right scale for 8" figures, even though it is marketed at 12" figures

Also, with all these accessories, the carrying case is looking better and better

I have to say that I'm liking all this talk about these figures and this company, but unless the stuff is available in Walmart, Target, etc I feel that it's still related to the "Fan based custom" stuff. Yes, I believe that being able to walk into a major retail store adds that special feeling of "Damn! About time!" Only being able to purchase this stuff from an online store just isn't the same.

The same goes for the calendars that never appeared in Barnes and Noble's display at Christmas. Maybe I'm just an old fuddy Duddy, but this all makes me feel like it's so "underground." Of course: IMO. My two pennies being dropped on the doorstep. :x

"Underground" is the only way we've gotten any of this stuff for years. The exciting part is now it's actually legal. :lol:

I agree it'd give a warm glow to walk through Wal-Mart and see these figures on the pegs (well, as close to a warm glow as you can get when you're in a Wal-Mart ;) ) except for two problems:

1. I'm not at all sure there's a market for any Mego-style figures in the major retail outlets. Mattel's recent "re-Mego" line flopped, and I can't think of anything similar for years.

and

2. Even if this stuff was shipped to Target and Wal-Mart, the odds of finding it on the pegs is pretty remote. Speculators, scalpers and other low-lifes long ago ruined the whole "buy it at a bricks-and-mortar" experience. Like it or not, MOST toys worth having can only be found online on anything like a dependable basis.

No worries, here. I miss the days when I could find a happy surprise in the toy section, but now I have the (for me) equally exciting experience of finding a package on my doorstep. If I didn't need groceries, I wouldn't shop in a "real" store at all, any more.

A local comic shop is an option.

Yes, point taken about things being dropped at my doorstep, however, I like to select products myself and not be at the hands of someone filling an order. I'm EXTREMELY picky about package condition and product placement in said packaging. Having a package drop-kicked from Tampa to Tucson doesn't always end well ;)

As for my local comic shop--They never stock anything of interest. Not enough on hand cash I'm told. No, I'm afraid the retail option is still my best friend, but sadly I must change if I want the stuff and possibly return items endlessly until one meets with my approval.
