    Anyone pick up any of the Twisted Land of OZ figures?

    I have seen these is 2 places and Dorothy is the hot pick of the bunch. I grabbed her with the idea that the rest will go on clearance like the TS figures and I really didn't have the cash for the others I liked anyways. The Wizard and Lion are the the nexted on my list. The other do nothing for me. The Fan club has a set with the flying monkeys, I guess thats cool. I opened Dorothy up and took that stupid black thing she had going on( I guess it's for retail purposes) and she's sexy in a Twisted sort of way. I have become a buy what I like from McFarlane. I used to buy the set. Not anymore, times a changing and there's no room anymore. For those who like the Oz line, what do you think of it?

    I'm so tempted to get these. Low on the cash flow now though. We'll see, prolly when they go on clearance.

    Yeah, but I don't think Dorothy will be sitting around. There's too many Twisted fools like me that love teddies and Clear Platform army boots on ladies.

    The line is complete and utter crap in my opinion, but no suprise coming from the sick screwed up likes of McFarlane Toys. The Dorthy figure especially is some sick pornographic fantasy, and I can't believe they thought this crap would fly. And I hear that TRU accepted to carry them. The line is disgusting filth. And I'd like to know why they turned Toto into a giant lump of dung. On second though, no I'd rather not. This garbage shouldn't even carry the name 'Oz' on it. It's disrespectful to the marvelous books that L. Frank Baum wrote.

    Uh, that's why it's called the "TWISTED" Land of Oz, JJB! It adds a new perspective to the Oz world. Now, if the line was called, "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz!" and looked like this, yeah, it'd be wacky, but its' called "Twisted" for a reason.

    I know, and I can understand the fact that it's twisted. But hell, the original book/books were pretty twisted. I just think it's an unnecissary toy line. But as they say, 'Different Strokes for Different Folks'.

    Like I've said before about these things, how are these "twisted" versions of the Oz stories? How do these really have anything to do with the Oz characters they claim to be portraying? Here's what I had to say about them (specifically Dorothy, but it applies to the whole line in one way or another) when McF did his toy fair:
    McFarlane's Dorothy has virtually nothing to do with Oz, it's just a smutty S&M statue-figure born from the proven-popular Tortured Souls concept using the Oz name.... The issue for me here isn't "Sex-themed Action Figures", it's the sleazy misuse of the Oz name and characters.
    Darth Vader is becoming the Mickey Mouse of Star Wars.

    I would have been impressed if this line had been from the movie "The Wizard of Oz." Realistic movie figures would have been tops. I actually agree with JJB though.

    I might get the Lion just because he's the best sculpted, McF can make some cool beasties when they try.

    JT, from what I heard from the sections of the terrible story that sounds like fanfic porn included with the figures, they don't really. Other then the names and the general theme, they have no association at all with 'The Wizard of OZ'. Basically ole McFarlane saw an oppertunity to make some easy scratch on a property that now is now public domain and he didn't have to pay for. Note that that's why the boots the Dorthy figure is wearing arn't even ruby looking. Because that aspect of the story still falls under the copyright of the original movie.
