By the by... 10am in what time zone? I actually would like to make sure I get an order in for this one since I've already got John pre-ordered.

Damn, Robin Hood is beautiful! They got me for two Prince Johns and it looks like I'll need two of this guy also.

Super7 operates out of California, so I'd assume PST. (Though these orders are open for a month so you have plenty of time.)

Whether that's just not 'Super7's thing', or an edict passed down by Disney, I don't know. I think the 'success' of this line will be with niche under-represented (or forgotten) Disney characters. I can certainly see them mining 'retro' and 70's/80's characters quite well.
I guess we won’t know until Super7 spills the beans. But I feel like when it comes to classic Disney characters, any member of the Mickey Troop or the Disney princesses are typically considered to be the easiest to market to the average consumer. It would be just too easy of a target market for Super7 to pass on.

Brian had said (I think during a Fwooshcast interview) that the major characters from hit movies/franchises that have plenty of merch out there for people to buy, aren't what they were looking at doing for this line.
So Beauty & the Beast, or any other "princess" adjacent characters from their films aren't likely to happen.

The oddball/variants of the Disney Trinity would be more likely from the line, as evidenced by Mickey from wave 1.

I'm in on about half these. If they'd get the Warner Bros Looney Tunes license I'd be in 100%

Bummer to hear about the princesses.

I grew up with the resurgence princesses, and always loved Aurora.

Sure, there's tons of merch and exclusives out there at the Disney Store, but it's Dolls and figurines that aren't what Super7 or... Any action figure company really does.

I want that desktop scaled, super detailed with accessories and poseability, not a gimmicked 12" doll.

Lego at least throws in Elsa and Jasmine and Ariel in with the CMF line.

In my heart of hearts I'd even take a Hasbro quality Belle and Ariel and Pocahontas with alt heads and hands and animal friends.

I would also love screen-accurate Princesses. I was really hoping that Figma would keep going after Elsa, and something like Super7 can do with soft goods would be even better. Still, there's a lot of really good Disney properties to mine, and I'm going to keep all my fingers crossed for Treasure Planet. Those character designs just beg to be toys.

You guys and gals wanting princesses are really looking towards the wrong company. If that stuff is gonna happen, I'd expect them to be imports at this point.

Oo-de-lally! Definitely looking forward to Robin, always been tough to find merch for it. Hopefully at least Little John and Marian will follow.

Gimme a Tod and Copper two pack. Esmerelda and Quasimodo. Hercules and Meg. The Incredibles. Peter Pan. Roger and Jessica Rabbit.

And even though she's a 'princess', Mulan is almost always left out of the main merchandising pushes for those characters (leaving aside the merch for the live action movie). I'd love to get a Mulan in this line.

I hope that they end up doing a Maid Marian to go with Robin.

Wow, I don't think anyone came close to guessing that lineup.
