Not only that but the Marvel Select Thanos is more amazing than anything Hasbro could ever do.



Thats because they used the exact same scan for the Marvel Universe Thanos notice he is bigger than every other MU, all they did was scale it down. so it is a perfect thanos...Hasbro thinks so.

It takes Mattel, quote, "a full year" to get a new character out. I'd assume the same for Hasbro.


They realese all the lantern figures while its going on right now or had recantly been going


Blackest Night ended a little over a year ago and most of the key characters who got figures from Mattel recently had already appeared before the Blackest Night storyline. Story started in October 2009 with #0 so of course they got the GL figures out for it this winter.


Then again, this is Mattel, who actually gets you the characters you want by the best sculptors (Four Horsemen) in the business.


ahem* that is, until the Green Lantern movie comes out. Then they put out a bunch of 4" $%!& and expect us to go weak at the knee.... yep, not gonna happen. Please tell me that no one here actually likes the GL movie figures. I so thought we were getting some DC stuff on scale with MU, but it is all crap. In fact, a 2 week old cow pattie has more articulation than those figures!lol


But generally speaking, you are right. They produce some awesome sculpts and are almost as articulated as Hasbro's stuff. I don't think they've ever quite gotten the articulation that Hasbro has done though. When DC finally started getting some good movement, Hasbro "kicked it up a notch" and started making even better movement.


So, DC/Mattel may be fast; but Marvel/Hasbro has done a bang up job of staying cutting edge with movement, imho.


of course, sometimes I think the DC hips are better than the ball joints that Hasbro still uses. Haven't quite made up my mind about those. What does everyone else think? The DC hips or Marvel hips?lol

I remember Hasbro telling us to expect a Modern/ Heroic Age Thor and the Terrax BAF. 8 figures in a wave is way too much. Plus we need some villains. I feel a wave should have 3 - 4 heroes and at least 3 villains.

Can we lease geta modern Luke Cage, a Whirlwind, the Wrecker, Grey Gargoyle, Ulik, the Shroud, Moonstone, leisure suit Wonder Man, or Snowbird? As long as Hasbro comes on strong with ML next year, we should be happy.


I always love Bigbears posts... usually exactly what I'm thinking. - LOVE the idea of the Shroud - use the Moonknight figure and cape. Seriously, with the Avengers coming out next year, they need to give us classic Avengers villians - Grey Gargoyle, Immortus, Classic Ultron, Wrecking Crew, Squadron Supreme members, the Collector or Grandmaster(BAF anyone?), Count Nafaria, Graviton, Molecule Man, Enchantress, Excutioner, Super Adaptoid, Korvac, Radioactive Man, Grim Reaper, High Evolutionary, Mr Hyde, I could go on but won't.
