Topics I've Started

Now that the 3.75" line is "resting" what will you do?

11 September 2017 - 03:53 PM

So nothing at Hascon for us, and in an interview Dwight finally stated that the line was "resting".  Not a surprise to any of us collectors, but definitely not welcome news.  So now that there are no new figures coming for the near future, what will you do as a 3.75" collector?

I have no plan whatsoever to start collecting the 6" line.  It takes up too much space for me, and it would cost far too much to buy the older figures that I would want.  And, to be honest, I much prefer the look of the 3.75:" figures.  I hate the look of the abdominal joint on the 6" figures, and I just like the smaller scale a lot more.  So I am planning to keep my 3.75" Marvel figures, even though my collection has some huge holes in it (the rest of Alpha Flight, Ka-zar, the New Mutants, Dazzler, to name just some of my "must have" characters.  I guess I need to start looking at getting customs of the remaining characters that I need, but the cost of getting quality customs is pretty depressing, especially since I "need" like 15 of them made. 

What about the rest of you?  Are you switching over to the 6" scale?  Getting rid of your 3.75" collection?  Keeping your collection and hoping for new product 2+ years from now?

Marvel 3.75" -- what "must have" characters do you still need Hasbro to make?

So, if Hasbro's 3.75" line of Marvel characters really has come to an end, what "must have" characters/costumes did they fail to make in order to for you to be happy with your collection?

​I know some of you lucky folks already have all of the figures that you felt that you really needed in order to have a "real" Marvel 3.75" collection.

​I wish I was that lucky!  For me, in order to have a "real" collection, I am still missing a lot of characters/costumes.
​I still need:
the New Mutants (at least Cannonball, Dani, Sunspot, Magik, Wolfsbane, Warlock, and Magma)
​more Alpha Flight (at least Sasquatch, Shaman, and Snowbird)
​Beast (the blue Perez version)
​Howard the Duck (with at least some articulation!)
Ka-zar and Zabu
​Hellcat (to finish the core Defenders)
the rest of the classic Inhumans lineup (Gorgon and Crystal)
the rest of the second Brotherhood of Evil Mutants lineup (or at least Avalanche, Blob, and Pyro)

classic "bug-eyed" Hydra soldiers

Mole Man
​Captain Marvel/Photon (Monica Rambeau)
​Super Skrull
Viper (to complete the Silver Samurai/Viper duo, plus she's just such a major villain on her own)
.... and probably a few others that did not immediately come to mind.
​I really wish I was even close to having a "finished" collection.

​So how about the rest of you?  Are you still missing any characters/costumes that are essential to your collection?

(Edited the list to add on Viper/Madame Hydra -- d'oh!  Major villain and she had totally slipped my mind)
