Whoa, that boss is huge.

I hope these come out and don’t turn into a scam.

Namely, I’ve now allowed myself to get my hopes up that they might actually make their Banjo figures. And seeing these, they’d make a whole wave of Banjo characters:

Banjo
Kazookie
Tootie
Bottles
Mumbo Jumbo
Gruntilda

I’d be all in on that

It’s kind of alarming to me every picture they’ve taken of General Slaughter has him leaning against a wall.

It’s already going to be a challenge engineering a figure that big to support itself, if it can’t even balance in a natural stance it’s gonna constantly topple.

I figure I still have a week until BBTS opens up preorders. They're buying inventory to sell regardless and that gives me a buffer against any B2B fallout. No bonus accessory or whatever from buying direct is worth the time wasted with credit card customer support if it goes that route.

You can believe that Megalopolis engaged in fraudulent retail buying and transaction activity while also believing there's some potential in the Premium DNA manufacturing venture. Because the manufacturing is an asset with some existing positive worth that can be sold off to a new owner. Which is hopefully the direction things take in a year or two.

That's exactly what I was thinking too, but these are still the prototypes notice the toads are missing their advertised bicep swivel.

Rash's shades are removeable too.

Imagine if this had taken off?

Maybe NECA would have wound up with the license?

WTF. They’re kids who can turn into Toads? Is that what they are in the game too?

I’m realizing just how far I’m jumping ahead of myself for anything Banjo related. I forgot that the original press release said EWJ and then Clayfighter were after Battletoads.

I’d probably get Jim and Paycrow from an EWJ wave, but I don’t think I’d get anyone from Clayfighter. I just really want a Banjo and Conker for my shelf. The extra characters for them would just be gravy on top.

Trying to think of what characters would even end up in a Conker wave.

Conker
Berri
Gregg the Grim Reaper
Squirrel Soldier
Teddi soldier
Panther King
A deluxe 15” Great Mighty Poo (I can dream, right?)

With Storm doing so many fighting game properties that were prominent during the SNES / PS1 era, I’m most excited about Clay Fighter than anything.

Because nobody will ever, ever touch the license ever again. I’m shocked someone even wants to make figures of it now, but the designs are pretty toyetic.

They said May 15th and nothing happened. They went silent on all of their social media accounts as soon as the pre-order window ended.

That's assuming they get to the actual point they can fulfill product. BBTS is a safe bet if you must, but please dont.

I idiotically pre-ordered them directly from Megalopolis and haven't heard a peep. I'm counting it as a loss at this point.
