Heads without a body

Recommended Posts

With the announcement of the Reese head this is now the 6th character with a head but no body. I would prefer if Hasbro would give us these characters or other accessories instead of heads. Its frustrating to think we might never get these characters.

- Hammerhead

- J Jonah Jameson

- Silvermane

- Lilandra

- Madcap

- Reese

Okay here we go. *cracks fingers*

You can definitely use the Chameleon for JJJ and Hammer head.

Silvermane was never supposed to have a body since the RC car was his body in the storyline.

Madcap and Deadpool shared a body. No litterally they share a body when MC was fused with Deadpool. Not only that but Madcap wore a Deadpool costume when he was part of the Merc for Money.

Reese can be use on the Skullbuster body since they are both cyborg (but not the same design so that is iffy)

BUT!!!!!! I do agree with the Lilandra head. I want a Lilandra.

I saw ShartimusPrime use the Silvermane head on the 3-pack Ultron (that came with Hulk and Vision). The grey of Ultron's body matches perfectly with the grey of Silvermane's head, so it will look perfect as long as it doesn't bother you that he won't look exactly like his robot body looked in the comics.

As for Madcap, while he did share a body with Deadpool for a good while, his consciousness only manifested as an additional inner voice. You can still put the headsculpt on a Marvel NOW! Deadpool body, but you're stuck to having a Madcap that only reflects a costume he used for a few issues when he was part of the Mercs for Money (plus his mask was red when he used that Deadpool costume).

 I like getting these heads, gives me a chance to create some of these characters instead of waiting years for an actual full figure to be produced.   As far as whether i would prefer alternate heads or other accessories for the actual figures, i guess that's something i would take case by case.  Alternate heads don't seem all that relevant for  x-pool, speed demon, or skullbuster. I suppose Chameleon could've had a partially transforming head (like mystique). 

What other accessories do you think chameleon, speed demon, mystique, x-pool and skullbuster should've come with?  I'm not sure they need alternate hands or additional weapons or effect pieces but i'm curious what you're looking for.

Maybe mystique could've come with a swappable partially transformed arm in lieu of the lilandra head, but i'm not sure i'd make that trade off. 

Just my opinion, of course.

that's true. I rather have an alternate head that gives us a new character rather then some hands or guns that might be just thrown in a box when not in use.

I'm with Tarot on this, most of these characters have a passable body out there that the head will work for. 

Hammerhead and JJJ both work for now on the Chamelon body, but with that new Klaue body you can't tell me we won't see some sort of release of that with new forearms, so a proper JJJ and/or Hammerhead might be made on that as well. 

As for Silvermane, the car works, the Ultron body is fine if you want one that is humanoid. 

Reese could probably go on Nuke's body, with some slight paint mods or stay on Skullbuster, not perfect, but passable.

Speaking of not perfect but passable, Paladin's body with Mad Cap's head looks pretty good, just a little bulky, but still passable.

Lilandra is a tough one.  Maybe a Silver Sable body with a new coat of silver paint would be the best answer, not sure what cape would be best to add though.

With Lilandra, I'm gonna assume Hasbro are being dicks and will either unveil a Lilandra with an unhelmeted head (and no alternate in the package) at Toyfair next month or at SDCC in July and don't really intend for collectors to use the Silver Sable body for her unless they really want to.

Heh. while the assumption that "hasbro are being dicks" may be a fair one, in this case it doesn't bug me much since i was definitely gonna get Mystique anyhow.   But yeah, after the BAF mcu Thanos followed a few months later with a better version in the 3-pack  ( ditto for Panther costume Killmonger), I suppose you can't put it past them to do something like make a 2-pack with Lilandra and Gladiator (especially if these characters show up in the Phoenix movie, altho i'm not sure they will).

Lilandra just seemed like Hasbro being smart and releasing a figure (ok just a head) that coincides with an upcoming wide-release movie. If anyone is being a dick, it's people over at Fox and more specifically that hack Simon Kinberg for doing a Dark Phoenix movie without the Shi'ar empire and Lilandra specifically.

Speaking of Dark Phoenix, whatever happened to that Gamestop exclusive Dark Phoenix Mighty Muggs that Hasbro was supposedly planning to release last year?

that doesn't really count as it was just a re-release of the Iron Monger wave version.

You can use Chameleon for Jonah but its not the ideal body. Jonah normally wears the vest, that's why people are using the Klaue body for it

Hammerhead is too small a body

Silvermane I agree, its from the storyline. Still it'd be nice to have him, the Ultron body fits except for the feet IMO

I know Madcap and Deadpool merged at some point, but Madcap was just a voice if I remember correctly. We need an OG Madcap

Agree with Reese and Lilandra.

I like the alternate heads, it gives you more options and if you happen to find some headless body in a charity shop or Car Boot Sale, you can get an extra figure.

Im ok with heads being included if they are usefull on previous/later figures but I think they are useless if they are just heads that "sort of" fit the figure but not really, I used the mentioned Ultron Body for the Silvermane head and it looks really cool, the extra heads on chameleon are nice aditions for other characters and it looks like the Black Panther Klaue Body witll fit perfectly the J Jonah head, but I know my madcap head is sitting in a bin and so will reese, I really hope lilandra is a head that is foreshadowing a lilandra figure (I would hope hasbro releases a lilandra figure without the helmet later on and you can use this head on that figure)

    • Yep Ive seen the listing sadly it ran out really quickly and couldnt pick one up, dont know if amazon was just starting to create the listing and some managed to add the figure to their carts in the right time, or if it just sold out quickly, in any case its probably going to be restocked later, hopefully by then we'll know more info on it, from the images the figure seems like a straight repaint of the previous green hulks but does seem to have a new headsculpt.
    • I guess because I grew up reading Marvel comics in an era where Marvel adhered to the listed hgts/wgts of their characters & drew them in their correct hgts, I got used to thinking it would always be that way & that the editors, who's main job is to spot/point out inaccuracies/mistakes & have the writer/artist correct them & nowadays, I just feel like the staff at Marvel could give 2 poops about respecting the source material. An artist wants to draw the Thing as an 8 footer, editor says, "feh, knock yourself out", Same thig seems to be going on at Hasbro, who ever's in charge at Marvel of OKing said figure should have looked at the Thing prototype & said, "nope, too big in hgt, knock off an inch",  When it comes to characters that are heavily muscled/thick like Thanos, Hulk, Thing, Juggernaut, Abom, Rhino, I'd happily lose the double elbow, double knee POA in place of being the correct scale & thickness. All those figures mentioned are at least an inch + too tall. Thanos is listed as being 6'7 but thanks to the MCU, he's now an 8 footer so of course the comics have to follow suit, Jugs was originally 6'10 but nope, let's push him up to almost 9ft tall for no other reason than artistic license cuz ya know, being 6'10 isn't big enough. Kingpin BAF is at least an inch too big as well, he's 6'8, now he is drawn as being a 7-8 footer as well.  I know that the odds of ever getting any or all of these large sized characters ever getting re-done at their more correct hgts is slim to none but I just hope that Hasbro does their best to make characters truer to their actual hgts in the comics with future releases.  I'll wait for a Perez based Beast to be done as the Jim Lee version is over scaled as well. Hank McCoy is 5'11, not 6'6. 
    • This doesn’t surprise me, and does, in fact, please me. Right after the SDCC Vintage style Hulk was unveiled I saw someone make a grey Hulk custom and it looked far better than the official one.
    • There are now pics on the main page:   Marvel Legends Grey Hulk Action Figure Coming From Hasbro?!?
    • so it begins. Get your color wheels ready folk. LOL  Joking aside, I am delight to get this out of the way. Should this be consider a FA version or a pre-Joe Fixit version? The only complaint I have is it's on the wrong sculpt as grey Hulk is alot shorter the his green counterpart.
