I already said I prefer Blue and Orange like a few people on the thread.

Not sure you get the point I was making. Blue and Orange, Blue and Yellow, Silver and Gold, Electric Pink and Plaid; it doesn't matter. It's silly to do a whole other figure just for a color difference.

And the point I was making is that Blue and Orange seems to be the preferred color way, so there's no need to do a whole other figure.

THIS! I prefer accurate representation of heights as well. I feel Omega red is to be bigger than SABERTOOTH (though I don't have actual heights) 

I'm picky about the way Storm is drawn. She is a tall regal woman..yet often she is drawn the same height as Jean Grey who originally was drawn shorter.

To me artists these days just take over a book with the attitude of changing everyone's costumes and making their "mark" on the book for the short time they are there. 

 

Ok..rant over.

Omega Red is 6'11, so yeah, he's supposed to be bigger than Creed.  OR is a visually cool looking character but I've just never liked him & therefore, have no need to buy the figure. He's a mutant with some death aura & carbonadium whips that shoot outta his forearms & is a expert in hand to hand combat, yet, always seems to always be getting beaten pretty easy by whomever he fights

I always felt like he was incredibly imposing.  Genuinely terrifying in his first few appearances.  After all, comic book villains are really only there to present a threat for a certain period of time before the good guys prevail.  Even if they do kill someone, it’s very rarely permanent.

Red for me leaves a mark because he was one of my favorite 90s ToyBiz toys and he was definitely on the larger side there.

Regarding Omega Red...I have always liked him and always felt he should be the "DEATH" Horseman for apocalypse. I think he is visually appealing but its true...he's beaten to easy. 

If I remember correctly though it was usually due to the fact that he was outsmarted.  It was rarely a feat of "power vs. power" that he was defeated.

Why  is the Sabertooth fig "small"? It's on  the correct buck that represents all characters in the 6'4-6'5'6'6 hgt. Sabretooth is 6'6 not 7'6. That's why I hate when artists take artistic license with the established hgt of a character & draw him bigger than they actually are, cuz then you have the "Oohh, I want a figure of him that big" crowd chime in. 

 

Latest 90s Jim Lee Sabes is perfect as is., only thing I wanted that they didn't do is give him alternate open/closed fist hands & alternate 'snarling" head.

 

They dropped the ball on Beast by not giving him a closed mouth head & now he is perpetually in a snarl pose 24/7. Hasbro needs to start making all figs with alternate head sculpts & open/closed hands.  Hasbro should make a pack full of nothing but extra alternate head sculpts of figures that need it. Say a 10 pack for $49. 

 

The next Banshee they make better come with both a closed mouth head & screaming head sculpt.

I should have clarified, I think Sabretooth should be a bit buffer, not taller.  Plus I’d like him to have the butterfly joints as well. My bad on the confusion

Yes...he's not written as a very bright man. Just a killing machine.

That I can agree on. I wonder why can't Hasbro use the MOTU bucks to make certain characters such as Herc more beefier but still in the correct hgt scale.

Probably because MOTU is owned by Mattel (and sub-licensed to Super 7), not Hasbro.

My bad, thought it belonged to Hasbro. Then Hasbro needs to get cooking on a new buffer body buck that still maintains the same scale as the newer Herc buck. It would be perfect for a classic Thanos who is a character with  great mass but not hgt.  classic comic Thanos is 6'7 900lbs.  In the fight with Champion who's listed as being 10ft tall, Thanos is nowhere in the 8+ft scale that artists now depict him as. It took the damn MCU to scale him up & of course the comics have to always follow suit with what the movies do.  The SOTA street fighter Bison figure is the perfect buck for a classic Thanos figure.

I don't get what your posts are about.

You said it doesn't matter what colour they go for Jean's costume: blue and yellow; blue and orange. You even called it silly to have a whole other figure just for an artist's interpretation of the costume.

I then said the preferred color for Jean Grey, of the three people on this board who have expressed an opinion on the matter, is blue and orange.

Do you want multiple color ways or not? Because three of us would be happy with blue and orange.

The comic-Thanos BAF is broad but not nearly as tall as many BAFs.  Not even as tall as the Hulk that came in the wave to build him.

Still near 8' scale, 7' scale woulda been perfect. A classic Starlin/Lim Thanos needs to be 7' scale max. Thanos was never a giant in the comics until the typical artistic freedom took over & the MCU also made him a giant along with the Hulk  was a 7 footer until artists started drawing him gigantor sized in the late 90s. In his 1st app Grey look, he was 6'6.  If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Yeah, with a few individual exceptions (Thor comes to mind) you're probably on your own there, buddy.  People seem to like bigger characters...big.
