McFarlane! why, why, why, why! why! I just can't beleive it! argh! I don't want mcfarlane making the jp4 toys! they're just gonna screw them up by overdoing them like they do every toyline. I hope the mcfarlane makers read this. Id rather have plaskool make the jp4 toys. I like the playable, movable, life-like skin toys. like TLW, and JP1. the toys mcfarlane makes are hard, collectable toys. im 14 and don't play with jp toys anymore but I do still buy them. last week I bought a dilo an pterandon from the lost world on this site. and they are playable, average detailed toys. I don't want overdone toys like the ones from The Matrix. the things stand on welded on ground. if the toys are overdone, non playable, oh,... :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

Hey MasterJedi... This is kinda of an old poll. It's probably time for someone to start a new one. JP here is referring to the Jurassic Park toys. There are a lot of Jurassic Park fans that stop by here from, their homeworld

Excuse me, what's "JPToys"?

I'm new here. :wink:

I think Hasbro/Kenner is the best made.

They have some of clothes on plastic body and moveable joints than McFarlane figures.

This is where customizing comes in!

Mcfarlane is why I started doing customs! His figures RULE! The lack of movement sucks. So I started buying cheap figures and cutting the arms and legs just above the joint and below. Then cut the Mcfarlane figure the same way and with a couple of screws, glue , and some dremal work, and a little milliput to cover the seam, you will have an articulated figure. I can explain the process in greater detail if needed. So now all of my Mc figures are fully articulated.

look at mcfarlanes earlier set of spawn figures. very playable, but, the statues are seriously annoying, I hope to god for series 27 that I. 131 is articulated. I want to set it up, not stare at it, and not goof off with it every once in a while

I am tired of breakable,non-articulated toys. they piss me off because I love playing with my toys.

As far as I know it's just a rumor that a forum member at brought up. I have no idea if it is true or not.

So what is the latest word on McFarlane doing the next JP Toys? Is it just a rumor right now that they are trying to get the license, or have they already announced that they will be doing them?

I must of been overtired. I just don't want them making the toys! heres the bad things that will be about the jp4 toys:

-Overdone toys
-Non-playable toys
-Expensive toys
-smaller toys

I don't really think now that McFarlane iis gonna mess up the jp toy line as bad as hasbro did with jp3. the toys were rediculasly screwed up. but was there any good toylines that mcfarlane made. (that were playable). I don't know, we'll have to wait and see. maybe they might make good-detailed, partailly playable toys, thats the least I expect.

I agree with both of you on this one. I definitely don't think McFarlane should have the exclusive rights to JP. They will overdo the toys, but that can be a good thing if you are looking for detail. But yes, McFarlane isn't known for making playable toys, and they tend to be a little on the fragile side if you try. These should be made for kids. I would prefer Hasbro make them, but if they don't, having someone else like McFarlane do it is better then nobody.

Has McFarlane done bigger toys like Dinosaurs? They are usually more figure oriented. I wonder how they will turn out.

If the toys have good detail and are good compared to the movie, I don't mind what line creates them. I noticed that you said you don't like hard toys and you don't want McFarlane doing them. Well, Hasbro does the same doesn't it? So what difference does it really make?
