I know everyone and their dog has already rushed to blog about their thoughts on it (or post HILARIOUSLY SUBVERSIVE entries not quite about it), but since the past couple of days have been an utter disaster for me I haven't had time to keep up with any of the big topics and I am reduced to posting my thoughts here.
I love what is happening.
I love the mix of old and new character concepts.
I love the mix of old and new story devices.
I love that the legend appears to be a literal interpretation this time.
I adore the sets, even the ones I don't care for much. They're a throwback and step forward all at once, carrying all the gorgeous new molds and recolors I could hope for and using techniques not widely used in sets before.I love the return of solid heads with transparent eyes.
But mostly I love that this event has provided a small refuge of happiness from all the stress I've been under lately.
2015 is still two and a half months away, but I am more than willing to wait for what I see.
