Saying it again -- Hayabusha looks closer to a Hasbro than ANY Retro figure -- even all the Mattels.
If Chella can do a figure from the Hasbro era as well as Hayabusha, I will be a customer
The Retro figures were cool, but I never thought they were close to being Hasbro’s. They were based off of them, but I never seen them as true to Hasbro likeness of that makes sense. These Chella Toys are close, and Zombies figures feel close to them too.

I think Series 2, especially Meanie/Stevie may be released closer together, or at least shipped closer together (not necessarily at the same time) but there are obvious candidates for shipping together like bWo and Daddy/Haystacks etc
My hayabusa got to me today here in canada. Very pleased indeed all around. Chella is doing an amazing job. Also, bryan clark said yesterday that there's a kronik 2 pack coming. I feel chella are nailing the hasbro feel. Zombies make me fear theyll be a bit too realistic and detailed and miss out on that hasbro charm. Mattels had more of a McDonald's toy feel by the end of it..

Zombie is clearly going for the "display only!" collectors market, whereas I suspect a few hardcore Hasbro collectors will still have a loose collection for playing around with, and the Chella figures work well for those people just looking for a figure to play with
I've got 2 of each (Aldis/Meanie/Hayabusa as well as the others coming) as I'm keeping one MOC for my collection, the others I open and know my kid will enjoy playing with as much as I would
though I'm buying Big Daddy and Haystacks just for myself for nostalgia reasons LOL!
Dynamite looks great. Has it been announced what the second figure in the Uncensored line will be?
Sabu has been announced for this line:
I think Adam Bomb has been confirmed for it as well, but I don't think we've seen the drawing yet. I expect we will see Kronic as well, meaning we'll have a Brian Adams in that scale - they are coming as Retros already of course.
It would be very interesting if Brian Adams' estate could get the rights to the Crush name like Bryan Clarke has with Adam Bomb, but I've not seen any talk about that.
