New Sinister Six Pack set revealed

Recommended Posts

It's slated for one Legends two pack only, as it seems.

 

I was just saying this across the webs, but at some point, perhaps last year, and maybe volleyed by the SDCC Collector's Vault set, Hasbro has convinced itself that packaging is a more desirable feature than detail, paint, sculpt, accessories, articulation, or character selection, and I find that utterly insane. I can't have the other things because they're too expensive, but I can have fancy packaging and pay you for it- well, I find that moronic.

they really did knock it out of the park with the packaging

Too bad they spent more time on that packaging but next to nothing on the figures....

An embarrassing sh** Spidey figure,

And

A few overdue repaints on old sculpts...

 

But it is some cool boxes.

What is it retailing for on Amazon do we know?

That is the million dollar Question,

 

A reasonable cool boxed set of repaints

At a good price,

 

Or a overpriced crap repacked package aimed at a small group of hardcore collectors that will be on clearance for years to come

Hopefully Amazon knocks a few bucks (or a few dozen) off of the price. I'm not biting for $80. It paid off to wait for them to lower the price of their last few MCU TV seasons and hopefully it will here too.

That price point is ridiculous. Too bad, I like the Kraven repaint quite a bit. And no accessories??????? I wonder what low-life is responsible for this stuff at Hasbro. As much as it frustrates me, the real loser is Hasbro with all of this nonsense surrounding our line -- they would be making a lot more money from me and many, many others if they were handling our line with any level of care.

It took me a while to become one of those conspiracy guys that think Hasbro must wants 3.75 to go away, but I'm there now. This, along with the Guardians box set, reeks of a "we gave you box sets and you didn't support them" at Toy Fair next year.

I'm not sure it's intentionally malicious but I definitely think they are being lazy and skating by with the bare minimum.

 

I need this set for 100% completion, but I can't bring myself to pull the trigger at this price. If we all hold off and show some self-restraint, it should theoretically come down to something more reasonable.

Its sold out! Was just about to pre order. Gutted. I know they are only repainted figures but they look awesome. Y couldn't vulture have that same paint job the first time. It really breaks up that solid torso. Hopefully EBAY will have some near the time they are due out.

    • Yeah, you don't know what you're talking about, "Pole."  Disney lets each division and studio operate with a huge amount of autonomy. Marvel Studios takes care of Marvel Studios business, including hiring and all that goes with it, like background checks. The autonomy they operate with was earned, but it's also given out of necessity; despite what people want to believe, Disney is just too damn busy with their own operations to micro-manage Marvel Studios, Pixar and Lucasfilm. To suggest they all knew about the tweets years ago is pure ignorant speculation. Marvel Studios may have, but Disney didn't. The real reason for the firing is a simple one: Disney's core value, the ideal everything revolves around and something ingrained into their corporate culture, is that childhood is sacred, special and magical. If there is one line you definitely can't cross with them, it's that. Disney couldn't care less about the conservo-twats who dug the tweets up or what supposed pressure they brought to bear. The truth is, Disney would've fired Gunn once they became aware of the tweets, regardless of the way they were discovered/brought to their attention. As I said, those tweets crossed an uncrossable line with Disney. You're apparently also ignorant of Disney's history of cutting ties with profitable people who exhibit unsavory character flaws. For example, once accusations came to light and an investigation was made, they fired John Lasseter--Pixar guru and animation genius who turned Disney animation around--because he had become an abusive drunk. That's a huge loss for Disney there. You just know Dreamworks or Illumination would love to snap him up asap. Or maybe you didn't know that they forced the Weinsteins out of Miramax and then sold it off completely because they heard about Harvey W's atrocious reputation, but couldn't find anyone to step forward and press charges. They believed what they heard though, and cut ties rather than associate with a horrible person, no matter how much money he brought in. Also, Gunn was an unknown when he was hired BY MARVEL STUDIOS (and not Disney). It was actually a huge gamble to hire him as the director of a big budget flick about an obscure group of comic characters the general movie-going public knew nothing of, let alone cared about. He hadn't done anything to suggest he was capable of helming such a project. He wasn't sought after. He wasn't admired or in demand. To assert Disney knew beforehand and turned a blind eye because of the money he'd bring in is just astoundingly stupid, lacking in both facts and common sense, and full of shat.
    • Don't care about the game. Not going to buy a PS4 for one game. Prefer my 1X for gaming. It looks like the Devs did a nice job. Folks should have a good time.   I do have a pre order in for the Legends figure based on game though.
    • PM sent if you’re still looking for the boxcar.
    • Went to three Walgreens after work.  The newest legends any of them had were from the first Deadpool wave.  
    • The unmasked head is definitely the best feature of this figure.  I saw some other reviews and people got better painted ones so I guess you were no so lucky. The hair to the side puts some dramatic effect but limits a bit which poses you can put the figure on.  But what really bothers me and I think all are like this, is the huge gap in the crotch area. Tha is very ugly. Psylocke has that problem too, but this figure looks a lot worse. I think that they should not use legs so skinny because that would make it easier to hide or just fix the peg and sue a shorter one.  In comparison I think the X-Force version looks better and the fact you can put the unmasked head on it is a plus.
