  1. Today
  2. I want a generation x multi pack. My problem would be narrowing it down to team members... My musts would have include chamber and penance.
  3. Forget about life expectancy, how long before my figures start to fall apart/disintegrate??? Get back to us on that, Lizzy
  4. Good option for anyone who missed out on the ML BAF. I do like the sandy base but i'll be sticking with the hasbro version for now.
  5. Yeah, feels like we are at that point where the figure is just showing up in pockets of the country and hasn't reached everywhere yet. But i do think a lot of collectors buying 3 will make it more difficult to track down than some of the other exclusives. Most of the time i've ended up getting WG exclusives off the website, then sometimes i'll see them afterwards in my local stores. Just gotta pay attention to social media 'cuz the online ordering is short and as with other retailer's sites they often end up taking more orders than they are prepared to fill.
  6. Humanity aspires to prolong life expectancy, increasing its quality. Life expectancy is the expected (in the statistical sense) number of years of life remaining at a given age. In other words, it is the average number of years that a person or animal can expect to live. If in 1900 life expectancy was 47 years of age, it has increased from 45 to 63 years from the1950’s (Life Expectancy Tables n.d.). Thus, life expectancy is constantly increasing. This fact should make people happy. One might observe not only an increase in the proportion of the older population in the age structure of society and a gradual increase of life expectancy, but also a process called by scientists as “the rejuvenation of the population”. The population of developed countries, thanks to the development of medicine, keeps their health strong and a youthful appearance longer. It influences different processes, which have psychological, cultural, and social characters. Moreover, one should not forget that the real goal of scientists-gerontologists and all who are involved in overcoming aging is not only to increase life expectancy, but also to prolong health and youth. Increased life expectancy is a result of various factors. There are the development of medicine and health care, improving the quality of nutrition and living conditions, the development of technologies that help conserve energy and strength among them. A spread of set of cosmetic procedures of maintaining a good appearance such as plastic surgery, hardware and “pharmaceutical” cosmetology also makes a great contribution to the “rejuvenation” of the population. There is a trend in medicine called “anti-aging”. Moreover, many diseases and conditions commonly associated with aging have become “older”. Hormone replacement therapy also contributes to the health and activity of women. Such a “rejuvenation” of the population often gives a new emphasis to very different processes. However, the increase in the average age of the population has far-reaching implications as well as a serious impact on the planning and implementation of social policy generally. Nonetheless the UN is concerned because for the first time in history, by 2050 there will be more senior citizens over 60 years of age than 15 year old children. Current paper discusses why it happens and what problems life expectancy might cause for modern society. The Problems for Modern Society Caused by Increased Life Expectancy · Social problems. Some researchers believe that there is a problem of coexistence of generations due to the increase in life expectancy. Today, all the infrastructure elements of life are focused on creating the conditions for a full life of one generation, while at least two generations have the demand for it. Life expectancy increases, causing not only a joy a for person’s friends and relatives, but also new problems both for the state, and for all those who in one way or another are affected by the increase in financial expenses due to an increase in the duration of life of the retired. There are public and private pension funds, health authorities and social security. The need to pay more pensions depends on the amount of taxes that the young working population will pay. The increase in pension payments will require increased taxation so the state could pay all the pensions. The increase in the number of people who are over 60 will require an increase in the quantity and quality of medical care and service. In turn, it will require a large amount of additional financial costs. They will be required not only to keep constant supply and improving the level of medicines and medical equipment, but also to attract a growing number of health care workers. Moreover, much more old people’s homes and other care units must be built in order to provide all for seniors. · Economic problems. Due to life expectancy, a large number of people over 60 will continue working in factories and companies. Despite the improvement of the quality of their physical and mental health, they will still give way to the younger generation in power energy, speed of reaction and endurance. As a consequence, countries, which will be dominated by older workers, will be less competitive in the global market. Their level of economic development and progress will be lower than in those countries where the workers are young people. Moreover, equally important problem is the fact that increasing numbers of older people can cause them to compete with the younger generation in the workplace. As a result, the younger generation might perceive people over 60 rather negatively. Young people might begin to consider the elderly as those who deprive them of work. Mankind has always sought to increase life expectancy. Recent advances of various kinds of sciences, including medicine, allow people to count on a significant increase in life expectancy. Every day scientists create new kinds of drugs, antibiotics and vaccines that not only fight various diseases, but also prevent their occurrence successfully. In addition, the improvement of living conditions, nutrition and other factors that are characteristic of developed countries contributes to life expectancy. It seems that the increase in life expectancy solves many problems and allows people around the world to have a long and high qualitative life, constantly opening up new opportunities for self-development. Nevertheless, life expectancy may cause some problems for modern society. There is the need for large amounts of additional finance for social sector (pensions and health care among them. In addition, no less important can become an economic problem since a large number of older workers might cause economic decline.

  7. Kang, classic Ultron, Annihilus, Blastaar, Super Skrull, Viper/ Madame Hydra. All these were in some previous incarnation during Toybiz/early Hasbro ML time. They need to be updated; I don't include Dr Doom because we all know he's coming. Couldn't resist putting these on: Super Adaptoid, Count Nefaria, Sebastain Shaw, Bushmaster. Far as I know they didn't make ML before (did Count N make Marvel Universe?) but it goes to show, Hasbro's got a lot of figures to draw from that haven't ever been seen.
  8. Would definitely get: 1. Mr Fantastic ("negative" uniform, stretch effect arms and legs if poss) 2. Thing ("negative" trunks, 2 fists, 2 open hands, one head mouth open) 3. Invisible Woman - clear variant 4. Human Torch- all red, translucent, correct body buck 5. Sub-Mariner - 70s "water wings" navy/black outfit 7. Super Skrull 8. Annihilus BAF
  9. YES. None of that yellow head nonsense. Toss in some good flame effects and youre golden!
  10. Great job! That alt head looks more like the Emma Frost we all know and love!
  11. Still waiting for a fully articulated Howard the Duck.
  12. Magneto will be getting the white suit variant treatment from Mezco for their One:12 Collective line. Look for the figure to cost $80 and be released as a Diamond Previews exclusive.
  13. Upper torso is Enchantress painted white
  14. Wish they were as consistent with their female figs as they are with these
  15. huh, didn't know her jacket was removeable...
  16. this looks to however be Typhoid Mary's Body not Enchantress

      Jay C my old friend. I need to acquire Professor X by any means necessary! I have been faithfully commenting on here every few days or so. I watch every single video and read every review you do. Problem is that when I watch your videos on Youtube, I am playing it through my PS4, and for some stupid reason, on the PS4 Youtube app. you can't comment on videos. I do not use my Laptop every single day, so therefor am not able to always post. But I do Thumbs up every video! And if you remember, I have always tried to participate in your contests, but I think cause I'm Canadian you don't like me! Is this a throw back to '97 when WWF during the Attitude Era, split Canada and America down the middle and basicly almost started World War 3, with Stone Cold leading the American's and Bret Hart leading the Canadians! But I like you Jay, I think your really good at what you do, and I do believe you do actually give a #$##, and are not just in it for a quick buck. So unless your not prepared to throw down against the Excellence of Execution, The The Best There Is, The Best There Was, The Best There Ever Will Be, then you should use your Greatness and Influences, to make it possible for a Professor X to come my way! I will leave you with this final thought to ponder: 'Race Car spelled backwords is racE raC!'
