I've been waiting for this for ages the first trailer for the John Carter film adaption, & thankfully it doesn't disappoint. Cool



Now all I ask is please give the toy license to some one who is actually competent at making toys Laughing

That looks good, they need to change the name of it though. John Carter sounds like a bank manager from Milton Keynes.

I hope Mattel don't get the license after the massive turds that are the GL & Avatar film figures I have no faith in them & tbh the Pirates of the Caribbean, Tron: Legacy & Prince of Persia licenses weren't with Matty of course they all sucked. Laughing

It was originally going to be called John Carter of Mars no idea why they dropped the of Mars bit Rolling Eyes

Okay....


Since I'm a pretty big nerd of the books I was worried how the film version would turn out. Mostly Pixar people are involved, so I kinda know it's in capable hands.
Jon Favreau was supposed to do this ages ago, but then Iron Man came along & it never happened.

I pretty much figured they wouldn't really let Thoris or any of the other women or aliens run around naked or in barely there thongs. It was never in danger of looking like a live action Heavy Metal. It's Disney. It's PG-13, so fuck it. Just be GOOD!

I agree the name change is a lame. John Carter sounds like a Tom Hanks film, or like Erin Brockovich, or Michael Collins, or Michael Clayton.
What if WB had named the first HP film Harry Potter?
John Carter of Mars sells it perfectly!
And WTF up with that dumb ass JCM logo?? It's like a shitty tribal tattoo!

But, honestly, from what I see here it looks pretty good. I'm liking the visuals.
Taylor (?) looks like a good fit, as long as people don't get the idea this is a Prince of Persia rip-off.
Getting a sneak peek at a Martian was cool. The Peter Gabriel covering Arcade Fire song is pretty cool, too.

And yeah unless it's NECA there's no way we're getting any decent film tie-in toys ever again. The art of cool figures has gone out the window for cheap mass-produced crap moms & grandmas buy for 9 year olds.
If you want quality better save your money for the Hot Toys versions.

Triad made some pretty kick-ass 1/6 scale figures based on the book versions. BBTS has them for around $100

I would've been ok with Dejah wearing a less camp version of this:



(Any excuss to ogle Ornella Muti) Wink

Or this:



Oh well Laughing

WTF is going on with the Triad figures so far only Tars Tarkas has been released?

This is what we should be getting:








and for the ladies:




From the concept art I've seen the costumes are like Xena.

BBTS keeps changing the shipping date for Deja Thoris, Triad isn't as dependable as Sideshow when it comes to release schedules

I'd go for the Paul Renaud design.

Xena-esque could work.







Tell me about it, Triad are currently claiming the end of the year but weren't these announced around 2 years ago Evil or Very Mad
