Great video and great job by your children Sheriff!

I liked hearing about the continued discussions concerning adding abilities for 1.0 characters BUT I don't know how I feel about the part of re-releasing them to get new abilities. Even if in a different pose, it just seems like TOO big of a money grab for me. Everyone's mmv (mileage may vary) on this of course.

Awesome! Sheriff, your kids do such an excellent job. I can't believe JV's favorite Marvel movie is Blade and not one of the MCU movies. But the best take away for me was "and with this one so far we've announced five play sets and there's more coming."!!!!

I think a combination is in order. Rerelease the figures or repose when appropriate for like Toy Story 4, but allow the old figure to still access the same character info in the game.

^ If they re-release the Toy Story figures I'd probably have to repurchase them. The figure quality and paintjobs have gotten about 10,000x better since those initial Toy Story toys.

Nice interview and Ty is a natural.

When he said "this is a question that came to my head" it was really great. I honestly enjoyed a lot more this interview than most, if not all, of ones done by professionals.

They don't have to rerelease figures to give them a whole new set of moves. The figure is simply a "name tag" that we put on the base to have it appear in game. The full set of moves is actually on the disc so... the only reason to do that is to finance the dev work on those new set of moves. I'm really not sure I would buy any of those figures. They take so much place already that I don't have to get 2x the same figure.

Now, I need to watch the interview! :P ** Sorry, I could not pass on giving my 2 cents on the subject being talked about.
