Tarot, So . . . are the people idjits because they don't think . . . or because they don't think like you?

 

Think about it. :wink:

 

nope just don't think at all. Like the saying goes "Think before you speak". most people speak before they think and don't look at the issue properly.

I want ALL the movie characters produced. Black, white, red, green, purple, blue (and those last few are referencing Guardians of the Galaxy movie characters!)

 

I am all for fair representation, and I don't think it's a race issue that these figures haven't been made yet. Lots haven't been made. But I WAS screaming sexism when the entire Avengers movie wave first came out and the only character missing was Black Widow. I was for real sitting there at the computer shouting WTF.

 

But on a happier note, we've got a lot of black folks in the new Civil War movie. The previously seen sidekicks War Machine and Falcon. And I'm assuming Nick Fury will be appearing again. PLUS Black Panther?! Four black superheroes in one movie that WASN'T produced by Tyler Perry, Lee Daniels, or The Wayans Brothers?! Unprecedented. We've come a long way from the back of the bus.

 

Anyway, I want movie Scarlet Witch (another notoriously neglected female character... remember her shutout of the 5" toy line based on the old 1994 Iron Man cartoon? We got EVERY other member of Force Works. And she was MIA from the toy line for the Avengers: United They Stand cartoon, but Tigra and Wasp were included, AND Wanda's love interests Wonder Man and Vision... then comic Scarlet Witch came out shortpacked in the poorly articulated 4-character Avengers wave with Thor, Loki, and I forget who the fourth was, maybe Heroes Reborn Iron Man, finally she was released in ML by Toy Biz and we all know what an epic fail that figure was. Talk about having a hex on you... Until Hasbro finally broke the curse!). I want a movie Vision. Movie Falcon. Movie Red Skull. Movie Mandarin/Trevor Slattery. Movie Yellowjacket. Movie Ronan. Movie Nebula. Movie Yondu. Movie Collector with Movie Cosmo the space dog and movie Howard the Duck. Movie Quicksilver, even though RIP. BRING. THEM. ON.

Not only a shield Army Builder but also a Dirk Anger head. That 3 character in one. so maybe we don't have 6 (7 if you want to count the BAF) but 8 characters (more if you are a ABuilder)

 

I was bummed about this wave but seeing the extra stuff make it look incredible. Hasbro really throws these thing at us fans and honesty no wonder ML is alot of toy reviewers Line of the Year last year. It just keeps getting better.

 

I hope for next week Toyfair we will see the next Spidey and the X-men wave, then I be satisfied as I know they won't reveal much. I can wait until SDCC for them to reveal second rumoured wave, doc strange and next Spidey wave.

Let's also give Hasbro some cred here; they've really upped the ante' with including swappable heads. Fury and the Black Panther. I believe this is a policy that will stick!

 

I actually mention something like that in the Spider-woman NCS, where I said that hasbro had not realised the profitability of swappable when they released Spider-woman without the FA had. this just show that hasbro learns properly and caters to fans. both MCU and Comic fans. (yes they haven't out such and such but at least they are trying unlike some companies that expect you to pay subscriptions to get toys.......*cough*Mattel*cough*)

This wave is starting to shape up pretty good....I assume the missing Baf pieces are Movie Cross Bones? Nuke right next to fury in that shot...coming with the Gatling gun...also doubling as a Cross Bones Weapon?? Red Guardian Nice. That Iron Man tho...Finally Hasbro. so that leaves the last 2 slots and Baf to be officially reviled right.

 

 

*Edit* My Fault just read it:

  • BAF: Giant-Man (Movie Scott Lang)

For everybody hoping your favorite lines get revealed this weekend, just remember to consider yourselves lucky no matter how much Hasbro shows.

 

Chances are all that the Mattel fans will get is more of Matty pushing their MattyCollector exclusives (again).

Geez imagine what it would be like if they do decide to merge.

I was having high hopes that Hasbro would show the Mattel people how to make these Legend style.

I've got a few friends that do the whole mattel thing and they hate it. Their always unhappy. I really hope they never merge. It would just be bad for everyone I think personally. If Hasbro did one it would have to be very X Men heavy or something very out of the ordinary for me to join. Celestial baf would get me. But it would have to be huge. The Celestial's would be a dream. Pipe dream lol.
