Re: Can you guys release some of older your sets again?

Do you ever wonder where mega bloks would be without mattel? I think they were doing pretty well, hence Mattel's interest in acquiring the company. They needed to get into the construction block game because at the time the Big H came up with their own line of blocks and the Danish Co. was doing cr...

Re: Let's Drop the COD Line

I wonder how much Mega's bussiness model depends on licensed products. We get about one large Pro Builder set per year and nowadays the tub pieces, but most of what I see at stores is Pokemon and Halo (and just recently GoT), with a slight sprinkle of Heroes here and there.

Re: WWII Weapon Crate (GCN92) question

When I got this set, I noticed that even though the hands are made from flesh-colored plastic, the actual mold is that of the gloved hands, with the sculpted bumps over the knuckles. So, my quiestion is: Has there been a running change done to correct this? Do any of you have this set with a smooth...

Re: Do you think there should be civilian cars

Yes, you are right. Getting a license just to produce civ cars to use in CoD dioramas would not be financially sound. Since most of the cars I'm seeing in the CoD games are essentially used as obstacles/cover, I guess people could simply whip up some generic models using the regular contruction elem...

Re: Do you think there should be civilian cars

Didn't they have a car line already? Or maybe it was THAT other company?

Anyway, Maybe a Fast & Furious license would take care of the issue...

Re: Were do you buy your sets from?

Well, in Mexico, most super-mart type stores have some selection of current sets, although your mileage may vary. Amazon also does a reasonable job I think, although I don´t buy anywhere as much as from brick and mortar stores.

Re: Can you guys release some of older your sets again?

The original Drone Attack set was # 06813 (95 pieces), the newer one is FXW79 (88 pieces).

In fact, the new one is about USD $3.00 more expensive @ certain online retailer than the old MB release was in 2014, but then again, that's inflation.

Re: Can you guys release some of older your sets again?

The Respected Competitor often revisits concepts from their most expensive licenses with spotty results, The only recent example from MEGA was the Drone Attack set, which was somewhat of a downgrade from the originally released set. Still, it would not be a bad idea if we get to have updated design...
