just a thought,why no mindbender ?he is a fan favorite and yet we have no wind of him even being produced???if they are going to produce wraith,or even this matt trakker guy?then it begs the question,why no mindbender?what do you think...

Well there is a few waves left before the movie figs, so I'm hoping we get to see Mindbender and Zarana before it all ends. Zandar is ok, I wouldn;t be terribly upset if we didn't get him.

exactly that could have been a Mind Bender instead of the skeleton

and they have the parts from whut i see around iguess sumone up there has a bad taste for the DR aswell as the members of Zartans humble Family

Hasbro is well aware of Dr. Mindbender. If i'm not mistaken, he a has already been requested.

Just not on the plan at moment. With the way the demand and sales are doing, we are more than likely to see him made.

Are they aware of the Headman? Oh, who am I kidding.

If they released all of the core and/or popular all at once, the fans would get real bored afterwards with nothing but repaints and variations.

My money is on that Hasbro has learned way too much from Star Wars and their fans'. They make many variations of characters, string out all of the popular characters with repaint filler and variations, and make the fans wait that much longer for "perfect" core characters. That's how the SW line is ran, so why wouldn't they apply it to Joes?

That's the reason we got an "almost perfect" Fett in the Legacy set, because we'll also buy the "perfect" version a couple of years later. Probably why we're finally gettin a chromed CC now.

good point,still would be nice to give the good DR. some props,he did invent the b.a.t.s,that plastic crack we are all strung out on trying to score one...or 20....

The fact that Mindbender was recently used in the ad campaign for JoeCon leads me to think that Hasbro is indeed planning on making this guy at some point in the near future. Now if he's coming in 2009 (I'd like it to be 2009) is anybodys guess, though.

Let's hope he's in the 12th wave
