Ducktales WOOHOO!!

Is getting a rebooted series on Disney XD...

but for the 21st Century... Color me intrigued...
Now that I mentioned the bit of news, it's Rantin' Time!

-I'm afraid of CG being used... Or a mega Stylized look (as seen on the new Mickey shorts).
-I fear the Remixed theme... Dubstep versions... AWHELLNAW!!
-I fear redesigns on some characters... Launchpad is the one who I'm very worried about.

Now for the Good!
-Blathering Blatherskite!!! a 21st Century Gizmoduck!? THIS I HAVE TO SEE...
-Donald will have some more appearances than he did in the 80s? This I want to see. I always felt that Ducktales needed a bit more Donald.
-This could open the door to ANOTHER show that I'd love to return!

And not to mention that Ducktales was a nice part of many peoples' childhoods... and a part of

Ooh! we surely could use a return of some of those Disney afternoon shows.
(especially if it means the return of a show with Greg Weisman at the helm.)

Brandon Sopinsky of Mattel dropped us a bomb.

The new guy in charge of design, Brandon Sopinsky is the Matty go-to guy now doing the Matty videos. In his latest video, he dropped us a bomb...

If you watch the video you'll see Point Dread! Guess SOME of the rumors were true!
Check out THAT TEELA...
She has a nice badonkadonk... and that means only one thing: Teela + Nice badonkadonk = Filmation Teela!

Here's the thing: Seems that the new Point Dread is roughly one and a half figure tall...
Not quite as big as I wanted it to be, but I'm not sure how well it compares to the vintage one.

I KINDA Like it, but the rumored $150-$200 tag scares me a little bit... Mostly because I'm mostly indifferent to the vintage Point Dread... Now the only thing that is tempting me to buy it is DAT ASS!! Yeah, it sounds sexist as Hell, but I don't give a damn!!
You all know how I say that 9 out of 10 times I choose 200X designs over Vintage? This would be one of those 1 out of 10 times.
Dayum! Filmation Randor, Teela, MAA, Marlena, Adora, Orko, Cringer, Sorceress, Shadow Beasts, the entire MOTUC POP Roster... (and we have some people bitch about a few 200X items in the line.)

But yes, FILMATION TEELA... The One Teela I dreamed of getting as a child is now happening in Classics... IF RUMORS Are True. If they are true, then this Teela will be sold in Scalper prices on Mattycollector... but you get an additional Point Dread and possible Talon Fighter with her.

I don't want to guess the Secondary Market Price on Point Dread and Bootilicious Teela. Seriously, People have complained about paying $100+ for a Teela on eBay and Mattel gives us a Teela that we'll have to pay OVER $100 to get on Matty.
