I like the looks of this figure...however I would have liked a pair of open hands to simulate Bobby making the ice slide.

Great looking figure of good ol' Bobby Drake, but jeez, how did Hasbro screw up the choice with his hands? They couldn't give him an extra set of hands?? Or even just one projection hand? It's really frustrating when they get things like this wrong.

Accessory is not great, lack of extra hands, and I just don't like the face. Pass for me.

Michiganjfrog - I have used a mix of clear blue and clear Tamiya paint for this effect (brushed) and it looks fantastic!

Im liking how this figure looks though like almost everyone else I wish he came with a pair of open hands but seeing this figure is in the "vintage" wave I kind of knew this wasnt going to happen, hopefuly like @JayC said in his review they reissue this figure without the belt and alternate hands in a Spiderman & Friends 3 Pack (Ive heard before that firestar is a "complicated" figure to make because she is technically a mutant and it seems like in their contract or something she could only be released in a X-Men related Wave but she is more familiar with Spiderman and taking the spot of another mutant in an X-Men wave hasnt been well recieved by hasbro's planning, but hopefully this way we can get a three pack with her, Peter and Bobby sometime soon, im sure it'd be a well recieved pack)

Looks awesome as I had suspected, but something I didn't notice until now is well... I am kinda on the fence about that head sculpt is it just me or is his forehead and top and back of his head sorta of well extra large and a tad bit awkward looking? , the profile shot really made me feel this way. I will still be no doubt getting this figure (it's the best Ice Man we have gotten yet), but thought i'd mention that

I like this figure a lot and I agree we needed to get a better slide out of this since the figure didn’t have much anyways but what can you do? Anyways I do think he looks good but maybe we should get more of a snow effect on him but it would require new sculpting and I know they won’t do that, also would love to get a Bobby drake version of him

Ice Slide is still disappointing, it's a nice thought but could have been done better.

Yeah if that contract thing exists it obviously doesn't apply to multi packs, given the Hulk/Wolvie pack.

 Anyway, this Iceman is already preordered for me but I can't help but suspect it won't be too long before we get another release, probably with a more "blocky" headsculpt, alternate hands, and maybe even better FX pieces (or at least the same one).  Probably, as mentioned above, in an 80th/10th style multipack with Spidey and Firestar.

 

If TRU was still around I'd be expecting a classic X-Factor 5 pack but there doesn't seem to be any real outlet for something like that (MAYBE Amazon?  But I don't think the "new" TRU is going to be in the exclusives business for a while if it survives).

For those wanting open hands, these from the astral form movie Dr Strange work well.

I don't know, man. I'm always real leery about pulling body parts unless they're specifically made for it (like Pizza Spidey, etc.).

This fig is much needed but its got some serious flaws for being so basic. Obviously best Iceman we ve got, I wasnt a fan of the spiky one we got with the jugg wave. The overall translucency and pearlescent ice look is pretty great. But this ice effect.... id much rather have a second set of open hands than a glob of miscolored ice as an accessory. And the head is leaving much to be desired. They gave him that blocky ass jaw and it feels like his eyes are too close together. It feels very phoned in for what little is new with this fig. Needless to say even with all the gripes, hes a necessity to my xmen and capcom set ups.

I remember years ago that clear plastic was a taboo thing and all the figures made that way would crack easy or yellow

has that been improved over the years?

Im not certain on the contract though I do remember Dwight talking about why even though many have asked for Firestar she is a tricky figure to make due to the fact that she is a mutant (I dont know if its legal stuff in the contract with Marvel where mutants "must" be in X-Men related waves or if its more of the fact that since she is a mutant the people at hasbro want to put her in an X-Men wave rather than a spiderman or avengers wave and they dont find her that important compared to other mutant characters to take a spot in the wave) either way, a 3 pack with spidey and iceman would be a good way to circumvent that an finally get a firestar figure without her having to take the spot from another more "important or more known" character in a regular wave.

Iceman im sure we'll see him eventually re-released with minor changes, same goes for storm (I wouldnt put it past hasbro to re-release storm just repainting her suit in silver or black)

It was most likely a result of the X-embargo that was placed during the period where Perlmutter was trying to sabotage the X-Men movies. I know for sure that prior to that period, we'd seen X-Men and mutant characters in non-X-Men-themed waves, and vice versa (IE, Daken and Fantomex were in the Zola wave, Wolverine and Archangel were in the Hit-Monkey wave, and even back when ToyBiz had the license, you had stuff like Spider-Man and Black Panther in the Sentinel wave with Cyclops, Angel, Mr. Sinister and Mystique).

Now that Disney has purchased Fox, I wonder if we may see this "rule" be done away with.

I don't think it's a coincidence that we started getting X-Men waves and FF Exclusives right about the same time Disney likely entered negotiations to buy out Fox.

I think its more in the line of that when they started making figure waves dedicated to "specific" sets of characters was when this came to play, the figures you mentioned were all released in waves that were just overall marvel legends waves, its when hasbro decided to separate the characters in specific waves when this policy came to play (I believe this started with the Mandroid Capt. America Wave and the Ultimate Green Goblin Spiderman Wave) this is when they separated the Spiderman characters into their own waves, Cap/Ironman/etc.. into the Avengers waves, Mutants into the X-Men Waves, and a special waves like the marvel knights one (Manthing baf wave). I feel it has more to do with the fact that since hasbro separated the characters into these lines the whole Firestar debacle (Im sure other characters also come into this problem) came to be where even though she is more known to be a Spiderman Ally or Avengers Characters since she is a Mutant she had to be put in the X-Men Waves (and since they were only doing 1 wave per year they felt other characters would sell better than her thus she wasnt a priority) with the Fox purchase we have seen X-men waves come to 2-3 waves per year so if this thinking of her necesarily having to be part of an X wave is still in effect having many waves means the chance of her being included in a future X wave are now bigger, if not thats where the 3 pack could be a very good choise for this figure to go arround the whole "Mutants have to be in a X-Men related wave" deal.
Another reason why whe migh have not gotten her yet is because she hasnt been that relevant in comics lately (in reallity the Spiderman & Friends Cartoon is what most people primarily know her for, so hasbro might not think she is that relevant of a character to warrant a figure right now and they might think it will most likely become a certain peg-warmer). Hopefully this changes soon cause I for one feel she is a needed figure (Im willing to bet many ML collectors feel the same way)

The head is definitely a little off, but it looks a lot better in these pictures than it did in Hasbro's. The chin doesn't seem quite as pronounced.

    • King & Queen: Black Bolt / Medusa - these two need to be redone Evolution: Mar-Vell / Captain Marvel - first appearance Mar-Vell in green and white Kree warrior outfit; other is red and blue Nega-bands costume with interchangeable head for white/blonde hair Enemies: Doctor Strange / Baron Mordo Heroes for Hire: Power Man / Iron Fist - classic versions of Luke Cage and Danny Rand  Nightwing Restorations: Misty Knight / Colleen Wing  West Coast Avengers: Tigra / Wonder Man - red jacket and sunglasses version of Simon Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: male / female - two bodies in tactical blue and gray uniforms, interchangeable heads to create Jimmy Woo, Jasper Sitwell, Clay Quartermain, Phil Coulson (male), and Contessa Valentina Allegra de Fontaine, Maria Hill, Sharon Carter, Melinda May (female)   There are so, so, soooo many more I could come up with. I also really like the idea of army builder packs for the Skrulls, the Kree, the Mindless Ones, the Leader's Humanoids, Hydra, A.I.M., etc.
    • I love that the Fantastic Four are getting their own wave(s), but I prefer classic looks to modern. Since the Walgreen's exclusive gave us the retro/classic look for Reed and Sue, I'd like to see the other iconic design, the blue and white costumes designed by John Byrne, made famous in the '80s and '90s and in the unreleased Roger Corman movie.   Wave 2 Mister Fantastic - with bendy wire stretchable torso; arms and legs would be good, too, but torso is a must She-Hulk - Fantastic Four costume Mole Man - 3 1/2 inches tall, comes with 2 moloid creatures the size of a Marvel Universe figure Super-Skrull The Wizard Paste-Pot Pete BAF - Annihilus Wave 3 Invisible Woman - in costume, translucent shield effect like the new toy has Human Torch - Johnny Storm in costume, attachable flame effects Namor - reissue with cape and crown, alternate head with more comic-accurate hair and eyebrows Skrull Scientist Mad Thinker Invisible Woman - translucent BAF - Awesome Android Wave 4 Human Torch - flamed on, red body, black lines, yellowish flame effects Crystal - classic yellow Inhumans look Triton -  Diablo Puppet Master Blastaar BAF - Dragon Man Wave 5 Thing - with blue pants Gorgon Triton Titania Firelord Impossible Man BAF - Ronan the Accuser  
    • TF is not one franchise it is at least four franchises at the moment.  Also no that they are doing the main members there is no need to release them again in the next wave. They should go back to the old He-Man idea and release main characters once a year, not every wave or in some cases two in every wave
    • True, but I could argue that Transformers is ONE franchise, and you may get 4 or 5 more waves throughout a given year. FF is only one of MANY franchises under the Marvel banner, every one of which must be serviced. There's no guarantee there will be another FF wave anytime soon, so you have to get your big guns up there right off. That's probably why, after waiting so long, Hasbro is suddenly hitting us with 90s X-Men left and right. Lord knows when we'll get another X-Wave.
