  1. Past hour
  2. ComicHub is trying to help Local Comic Shops buy allowing customers to buy Digital Comics from their LCS and then get the physical copy when this crisis is over
  3. He wasn't saying that, and frankly, I find your lame attempt at sarcasm in extremely bad taste. The point is, the media is painting as bleek a picture as possible because, it never fails, the "Worst Case Scenario" will ALWAYS sell better than the "Happy Ending." It's like boobs on Baywatch, all about the ratings. NOBODY is saying its not a bad situation, and NOBODY is saying ANY life is more or less important than another. The fact is, most people who contract COVID-19 suffer only minor symptoms, and many of its victims have already recovered from it. This isn't the apocalypse the 5 o'clock news desperately wants to make it sound like.
  4. Today
  5. Yeah, nothing would stop them from previewing it. Though personally I suspect that if they postpone the campaign they'll postpone the unveiling too. Just so it doesn't feel like "old news" by the time the campaign goes live. The longer it's "out there" between unveiling and actually running the campaign, the longer collectors have to talk themselves out of shelling out for it.
  6. Guess it depends, pretty sure comic-Spider-Gwen isn't all that much younger than 616 Pete (if at all). Spider-Verse Gwen is a late teen, though. Either way it's a cool picture.
  7. Good to know I'm not worth worrying over! TBF with his last statement, he does say "unveiling" not offering. So it could be seen as an aspirational goal: "Hey guys! I know things are tough right now, but things will get better and when they do this is what the Sentinel for HasLab looks like. So know you know, stay healthy, stay safe, stay at home. There's this prize at the end of the road!" Maybe he needs it to get him through the crisis, we all need different things to stop us from going mad.
  8. Got to agree on this particular point. Seems like an attempt to ensure comic shops don't go the way of the dodo, but really marvel, dc, and image should be pushing everyone to switch to digital copies and collected trades. Since most people are cooped up right now, it would be a good time to get people to try and make the switch from paper to digital. No offense to comic store owners but tbh it feels like we're lucky comics stores have lasted as long as they have. I get that floppies generate the most revenue but publishers are going to have to figure out how to make a profit without them, other book publishers manage it atlho there are fewer publishers than there used to be.
  9. Remember folks! Lives aren't worth worrying about unless they're a perfectly healthy young person! I mean, maybe Gigantor lives in Bizarro world but I've been to a lot of "geeky" conventions and I'm willing to bet a whole lotta those folks have "underlying health issues." As for HasLab: It could very easily be seen as in poor taste to offer a high-priced marquee item during a time of massive unemployment and people worrying about family members' health and livelihoods. And have a far lower chance of succeeding/meeting it's goals if a lot of the buying audience is dealing with economic difficulties brought on by the Virus.
  10. Thigh cut is the only way to go right now. It's the comfortable medium of providing max articulation while sacrificing as little aesthetics as possible. It just is. You look at a bunch of these import companies trying to do all these innovative things with the articulation to make it look "better" but in my experience the end product always ends up worse. In the case of companies like Tomashi Nations and SHF the joints are often awkward angles with pieces held on with glue or the design leads to some of the material used having to be so thin or brittle in places that the joint becomes prone to breaking. Yep, it seems like nothing works quite as well as the old thigh cut. I agree it does look bad on the skin tight spandex characters but the best thing they can do right now is try to hide it in paint and sculpt detail whenever at all possible. The examples of Juggernaut and War Machine only work because Juggs is so big they could add extra material and WM is so complicated it can be absorbed into the detail. I can't imagine this technique would work with someone like Spider-Man or Jean Grey who both are pretty much naked bodies with paint on them.
  11. I'd prefer they stick with the thigh cut out of the two choices. I like the poseability and the aesthetic doesn't really bother me.
  12. What people either don't know or seem to neglect is the fact that Europeans are heavy smokers & start smoking in their mid-late teens & both countries have a huge elderly population. So you have a ton of elderly lifelong smokers being exposed to a virus that attacks the respiratory system & that's where the vast amount of covid19 deaths are coming from. Add the thousands of others , regardless of age, that has 1 or more underlying health issues account for another huge percentage of the deaths. And again, I don't care if SDCC is cancelled or not. Why would that derail the unveiling of the Haslab Sentinel project?
  13. @MarvelTVGuy01, I don't have either of those pieces. Sorry, pal. I recommend checking out dorksidetoys.com, dmwallthingsmarvel.com, and thecollectorslair.com. All three of those sites sell random, loose BAF parts; bookmark them and check them periodically. Other than that, the only place I really know of would be eBay. Good luck!
  14. Yesterday
  15. Very very nice....yes. As befitting the Sorcerer Supreme. It'd be great if they could work the Eye with an actual articulated "lid" feature too. And to be clear, I'm talking about the original Eye, not the movie variant. Your idea is perfect and I'd snap that up in heartbeat. Not even the Crimson Bands of Cyttorak could hold me back!
  16. Still prefer thigh cuts, because of the increased poseability. I don't find them to be that much of a problem for the aesthetics. I'd like to see drop down hips used more often, but figures like War Machine and Juggernaut, who would benefit from them now, are already made, so I'm in no rush to see drop down hips implemented, since these and other already made figures would still miss out.
  17. I prefer the look of the newer upper thighs to the ball joints. I have some figures in pretty extreme action poses, and none of them look like that photo of Storm and Cyclops. The only figure I had an issue with in this regard is Brother Voodoo, who is on the Bucky Cap buck like Cylops and has painted bones on his legs. But that figure also has so many other problems, I eventually just threw him in a box. I think the Bucky Cap buck might have been made before they figured out how to articulate Legends a little more smoothly.
  18. The Falcon- classic red/white outfit, standard underarm wings, translucent "hard light" wings, fully articulated Redwing (wings, head) Invisible Woman- TWO pack figures: clear translucent figure, semi translucent figure. Large "dome" force field effect (covers 2-4 figures), plus smaller field effect. Include "blast/smoke" effects to simulate strikes on force field The Vision- CORRECT costume with cord collar cape, sculpted belt, boots. "Phasing" translucent effect arm (bonus if they figure a way to get it to simulate going thru a person- one end flat against foe's chest, other end with peg that fits into most marvel legends back maybe?) , optic blast beams (translucent yellow). 2 heads. Red Wolf- coup stick, fully articulated Lobo wolf ( jaw, body, legs) Angel- classic Neal Adams dk blue/white costume, fully articulated feathered wings (at least as good as the 4" marvel universe figure from years ago) Iron Spider-Man- metallic red/gold outfit, fully articulated gold spider "legs"
  19. This is hardly "fear mongering". It could be over in 60 days, hopefully....but it might not be. But even if it is, immediately going back to jamming 1000s of people into confined spaces, from all over who knows where, is a risky notion. Haslab can go on the back burner for now. There's still uncertainty around the mortality rate, but annual flu typically has a mortality rate of around 0.1% in the states. In comparison, recent data suggests COVID-19 has a mortality rate more than 20x higher, around 2.3%(according to a study published Feb. 18 by the China CDC Weekly). The death rate varied by different factors such as location and an individual's age. All the people dying in Italy, Spain, and elsewhere is not fear mongering- that's reality. Even a certain someone who said the 2-3% fatality rate was a "false number", is finally starting to come around to realizing its a serious issue. I have a friend who's now on a ventilator, too weak to breathe on her own or even talk. She was totally fine 2 weeks ago. The Sentinel and the conventions can hold off for now. Stay safe! Stay healthy!
  20. Personally I'm holding off buying figures until Mr. Virus has gone away, then I going to used the money I have saved during this crisis to support my local stores (and get my book launched)
  21. Jungle action with the Predator featuring the Black Panther
  22. I'm happy with the upper thigh cuts given they give more articulation
  23. I can’t see them going forward with it but at the same time people are at home and some still have some savings they can spend on figures due to boredom, it really depends how much worse economic situation is going to be.
