#wf2019w - Amazing Yamaguchi Revoltech Bleeding Edge Armor Iron-Man & MAFEX Cyclops Images

Recommended Posts

The one thing I really love about his Cyke is the molded on thigh pieces.  I can’t stand the floating pieces on my ML figure.  Overall the figure looks great.  I hope that the MAFEX Wolvie looks this good (and they correct the blue stripe issue) once he is released.

Is this scale compatible with MLs?

The Mafex Classic comic book Spidey is a bit smaller than the ML pizza Spidey from a few years ago and their Gwenpool is a bit shorter than the ML version, so it doesn't seem like it.

This just makes me mad that I couldn't find the marvel legends one, makes a giant hole in my collection too.

They're actually pretty close. There's an ever so slight difference in height with the MAFEX being just a tad bit shorter. They usually match up pretty well.

Personally I like them but that $80 is just too steep for me. I just don't see $60 worth of improvement over the ML version, no matter how many damn accessories. Additionally, I've owned a few MAFEX and they are way too brittle for my liking.

Thanks. Yeah, the price point is the big negative for me. SH Figuarts, 1/12 Mezco & this line have some great figs but no way (BAFs are the exception) is a single 6' scale fig worth $60-$80-$100+ to me. Now if Hasbro were to make a 16' scaled highly articulated DOFP classic John Byrne Sentinel with light up eyes & swappable hands/heads with a buncha weapons FX accessories for $80+, I'd go for that & 2 more as  they always hunt mutants as a triad.

Official details and images for Cyclops have been released

 

Coming a little sooner than we expected, Medicom has released official images for their upcoming MAFEX X-Men Jim Lee Style Cyclops. The figure will stand 6.2" tall and will include 2 different optic blast effects, 3 head sculpts (regular, angry and one with ruby red glasses and no mask). It also includes two alternate visors, one with a trace of optic blast coming off it, and a regular one that is removable so you can put around the figures neck when using the headsculpt wearing the glasses. Also included will be multiple hands and stand. Look for it to be released in January 2020.

Would love to see that hanging eye piece on a Legends Cyke at some point.  Totally possible considering we have the mask off look for Wolvie already.

Wow this figure looks a bit buffer than the other magic comic figures. I like it! All the accessories make this a killer figure!

I hope Mafex continues this 90s theme both in Spider-Man and X-Men. Mafex is the sweet spot for me as far as aesthetic accuracy and dynamic posing. Marvel Legends is a nice line (and price point), but I feel like that line is more of an artistic take on the shows and comics. The only aesthetically accurate figures they try to make are from the MCU. 

 

I do wish that they made Wolverine’s stripes black, though. But man, this Cyclops is the one IMO. They’ve got the definitive Spider-Man already, and it’s looking like Cyclops will be definitive as well. I just wish the blast rays included a removable “impact” piece on the end.

I agree that this Cyke may be the definitive one, but I do not think Spidey is.  Had the colors been closer to the original promo shots I would be on board, but the black wash was too much

I initially thought the same thing after watching reviews and seeing the wash on the blue. I think they tried to replicate comic shading style. I ended up being indifferent to it after getting it in hand. As far as possibility and aesthetics, the mafex one is the sweet spot. Like a Marvel Legend spidey with revoltech posing. But you’re right, I’d rather have the lighter blue in the promo shots

I think the wash makes it look ore like the McFarlane Spidey, which is not a bad thing at all.  It’s just not my cup of tea.  I will say that the magents on the hands and feet were a stroke of genius though!

The blue on Cyclops and the effects are pretty neat. I’ll pre order it as soon as it’s listed.

He looks amazing but I don't like buy figures more than $30. He would fit in great with Marvel legends xmen.

I’m with you 100%.  The price tag is what is keeping me away from Cyke.  The tiger stripe issue and price tag on Wolvie are the two major factors there.  I just can’t justify spending what I would on almost an entire wave on one figure instead.  Maybe around Christmas time when Amazon slashes prices, but definitely not right out of the gate.

    • Not sure it has been posted but check Rite-Aid stores. Legends are beginning to show up there now since Walgreens bought most of the company.  Have seen finds posted on a few Legends groups
    • I think you are overestimating how often characters change outfit. The cases of Captain America and Thor are particular since they've had a past couple of hectic years with several temporary changes which I would consider an exception and not the norm. In the case of Spider-Man, he has only had one major change in the past five years; of using the Spider-Armor between 2015 and 2017. It's also worth pointing out that this was Spider-Man's only main costume change in the modern era. Also, the Spider-Armor got a figure in 2017, in the MJ Watson 2-pack. Even then, Hasbro has delivered modern versions of characters. But my issue is how slow they are at doing so. I think Hasbro should be able to keep up if they became as involved with the comic division as they are with the movie side. Using modern outfit changes as an example, Spider-Man used the Spider-Armor between 2015 and 2017, and it only got a figure in 2017. Iron Man's Bleeding Edge Armor was 2010-2012, w/figure in 2013. His Marvel NOW! Armor was 2012-2015, w/figure in 2015. His Model-Prime Armor was 2015-2016, w/figure in 2018. Captain America's Marvel NOW! uniform lasted from 2012 to 2014, w/figure in 2014. Thor's Marvel NOW! suit was 2012-2014, w/figure in 2015. His first Unworthy outfit was 2014-2017, w/figure in 2017. Something similar has happened with other topical characters, like Jane Fosthor who lasted 2014-2018, w/figure in 2017. FalCap was 2014-2017, w/figure in 2016. Ms. Marvel debuted in 2014 and got a figure in 2016. Miles Morales in 2011 and we only got a proper figure in 2016 (not counting the bad 2012 attempt). All of the modern outfits I mentioned had a pretty long life span of a couple of years, but Hasbro only made a figure for them when they were about to be ditched or were already ditched. In contrast, Hasbro works very tightly with Marvel Studios, allowing them to plan figures well in advance and release them either shortly before or shortly after a movie comes out. Even a delayed figure like the Iron Man MK 85 is coming out on the same year it debuted. For movie figures, 7 months is an eternity, but I'd be beyond shocked if Hasbro managed to pull that off for a comic look. I need to go on a tangent and speak a little bit about the Iron Man Marvel NOW! armor and how odd I find it because the armor debuted in 2012, and Hasbro already had a comic-accurate 3D model of it as eary as 2013 which they used for the Avengers Assemble 3.75" line. However, it only got a Marvel Legends in 2015, which lazily used a repainted MCU MK IV mold (which was inaccurate for the armor it was meant to portray). I think this could be an indicative that Hasbro can have the resources to release topical figures much earlier than they do.
    • It looks really cool but I still think Hasbro will release a MK 85 with the back piece or a battle damaged one with a bloody RDJ head and a snapping hand.
    • I think this is one of the better head sculpts Hasbro's done with the new face printing tech.
    • Looks awesome!! So much better than the wave 2 War Machine figure. I just wish that instead of it coming with 2 Thor heads, it would come with an unmasked Rodey head and a Thor head with removable shades.
