The problem I think hasbro has with making a Man-Ape is simply. he is a Black man in a white Gorilla suit. kinda makes you think if it's appropriate in this day and age.

 

That's an excellent point Tarot. It ticks me off that you're probably right. I'm going to ask about that. Anybody wondering why that bothers me, it's because Marvel comic fans wouldn't be offended by a Man-Ape action figure, but millenials, movie goers (who only know about these characters because they saw a film) and people that find axes to grind (and probably aren't even African American) would be up in arms.

I will be skipping the new Black Panther wave. The new Vintage figures are a maybe. Deadpool on his rider is a pass. I am crossing my fingers for X-Men. I am really hoping we get a great one next year

I hope we get some good reveals later today because its looking like I maybe done for a long while til the next X-Men wave hits next year.  

Yeah, I have a hard time seeing the MCU figures selling really well. Especially if they are going to go up in price like the 10 year annv. stuff. The only 10 year annv. set I wanted was that Thor and

I agree and disagree at the same time. I honestly don't see dressing a black man as a white ape any more (or less) offensive than a black man dressing in white furs & whooping and "barking" like apes and worshipping a White Ape as their deity. For that matter, couldn't dressing a black man in a black suit and calling him Black Panther instead of just Panther (cuz ALL panthers are black, fact) be construed as offensive to just the right person(s)? Anyone can twist anything to be offensive. For example, I'm surprised no one has had issue with a white man named Dane Whitman, which literally means White Man in old english, has taken the moniker of Black Knight. On the flip side, were he to have been a black man or be changed to a black man, I guarantee there would be an argument that THAT name is derogatory or that it insinuates that ALL black men are villains. Truth is anything can be corrupted to seem racist or offensive, but if you can make it look cool or funny to the clueless masses they will love it, but one simple misstep in the way something is portrayed or interpreted, you can be sure to bring the wrath of the Social Justice Rangers. Personally, I can see how the way the Jabari tribe was portrayed in the movie could be called racist, but Disney brilliantly made them look like the good hearted rebel anti-establishment bad ayasses who save the day in the end. Yaaaay, and the crowd goes crazy!

okay breath in. Actually some pretty nice reveals tonight. Glad I came home early some really, and I do mean really, unexpected reveals.

  • Hercules - Nice. Modern look as well. comes with some new accessories as well cool. (though I actually called it my Thor Ideal Wave)
  • Black Panther wave- EH. Nice stand in until we get comic figures.
  • Vintage wave- only one I think is "meh" is the Scarlet Spider, but that is only cause it's almost a straight release. the Hawkeye and Vision are a most though. That Ultron head look nice. I wonder if this means he is getting a proper figure soon.
  • MCU Ultron - meh. nice for people who didn't finish him
  • Archangel - I have both of the Hasbro version but that Death head (and unmasked heads) are a nice selling point.
  • AIM 2-pack - great for army builder but for me.....................meh.
  • Magik - again have this one but the effects make it more worthwhile.. See hasbro effects are your new selling points.
  • Mile and Gwen - have them but still get for Spider-verse
  • Black Spider - god that was fast. did they design the suit with Hasbro or something. nice tough. at least we won't have to wait for it.
  • Red Goblin - nice surprise though alot of people have been asking for it. 
  • Black Cat - I actually didn't think we would see a Black Cat so soon. But I can actually add this version to my villains shelf instead of my Spider allies shelf.
  • Silver Sable - I don't care what any one says. This here. this is the one I have been wanting for a freaking looong time.
  • Kingpin - Hasbro destroy Toybiz again. 2 head.
  • Prof X- I'm confuse about this one. is he coming in both the X-men wave and Riders wave (props to Hasbro for not listening to SJW on this one though) or is he just coming in the X-men wave?
  • Skullbuster - great way to get another Reaver and an awesome use of the Deathlok mold.
  • Blink - Probably the most unexpected figure yet. bravo hasbro.
  • Forge and Storm - hope to see both at NYCC later (if not one of the other cons)
  • Gambit - awesome. now  we need to find the next big guy to bug hasbro about. Nightcrawler or Beast? hmm.

Guess for the previews:

  • Classic Magneto
  • Hydra Cap
  • NO Freaking idea. what is that?
  • Mystique 
  • Quicksilver

Only two reveals I must buy: Archangel and Magik.  Skullbuster.....cmon guys.  

Allow me to reply to your post in case Hasbro is going to read this forum (they say they do)

THANK YOU for Skullbuster! Bring on the bad guys!!!

Majik & Archangel, while being re-issues, are better than the previous versions so yes, you can take my money :biggrin:
