Gotta admit, i am VERY curious to see how this guy sells, especially given all the complaints about the lack of legs.  

I do plan to get him eventually, but am hoping to score him for significantly less than MSRP.  I do plan to build Wendigo tho which complicates matters a bit.

Using the same tech they have to swap out Mr. Fantastic's arms, they would've been able to give this figure the legs to go along with his flying blast effect. Either that,  or make that effect longer (add 1-2 segments)  'cause right now it looks too stunted. Again, not a character I personally care about but I can definitely see why fans are disappointed.

Is this your pic?  If so, can you plug in to and unplug from the torso and the legs with relative ease?

It is my pic. No it's not really swappable- the connecting piece for this figure is unique. It would be possible to mod the hip piece to accept the new connecting piece with relative ease though. I just wasn't interested in using the blast effect at all.

Ah, I see.  Well, it looks good anyway.  Nice work!

Thanks! Pretty simple mod, I've had the extra Shatterstar legs ready to go for awhile.

Yeah, I wondering how this will sell as well.   I was thinking it might be a peg warmer and be on clearance or discounted on Amazon in a few months.   But, I've preordered this figure on Amazon but of FOMO and wanting to complete the X-Force team.

 

Now, if we can just get a Warpath figure to get with the rest of the team.

 

I've seen people complaint about certain figures, only to have that figure become hard to find.   Of course, I can't give an example off the top of my head but it has happened.

I like the Wendigo character, but prefer the version that looked more feral... highly doubt Hasbro would re-release Wendigo by just changing the head, and im not gonnna buy Cannonball just to get that leg. So, this will be one figure I wont get...unfortunate, but I need to slow down spending anyway.

Spider-ham comes to mind.  Everyone complained about his lack of artic but haven't seen him on pegs in  a long time and  he's going for around  $30 and up loose on ebay.  WIth the BAF piece the price is $40 plus.

I doubt a full re-release as well.  What I'm hoping for is a release of an alternate head like they did for Red Skull/Onslaught and Kingpin/Shadow King.

Stupid question but how do you get the legs off a figure to do this? I bought a hydro man specifically to use his legs/waist for Sam but can’t get the bloody things off!

Theres a Wendigo figure in the Fin Fang Foom wave.  He's pretty expensive though - listed for over $50 on ebay.

There's also the old "White Sasquatch" from Toybiz that could be used as a stand-in, I suppose.

Yeah, but I never got him and now I like the body for the new one better.  Since I'm buying the whole wave anyway, I'd love a John Byrne head released to keep me from having to go after that old Fin Fang Foom one.

Good point, i suppose that is a bit of a deal-breaker!!

And i agree, the new figure is probably much better than Fin Fang Foom version except the head, debatably.  I do think that whole wave is pretty good but i do think Guardian, Boom-Boom, and Cannonball could be potential pegwarmers so I'll probably hold off on getting them for awhile... therefore Wendigo could take some time for me to finish. He can join sp//dr,  Caliban, and Prof Hulk in my "to be finished" BAF pile.

I kind of want to get this for the jacket, might make a good star lord jacket after a repaint

I guess it depends on what the secondary market price for these turns out to be

You'll have to crack the abs apart or the waist piece either will separate the torso from the legs, there are a bunch of tutorials online on how to crack ML bodies apart, the easiest way is to crack the hips apart, remove the peg that unites the legs with the upper body and just put the hips back together with Cannonball's torso (but youll have to fill in the holes of the cracked hips and repaint so its more work), for a more minimal damage to the legs I suggest you crack the abs of Hydroman to separate the legs from the torso, then crack either the abs from cannonball (from the lower part that you wont see when the figure is put back together) or the hips from hyrdoman (these from the upper part that will be covered once you reassemble the figure), then you just put everything back together superglue the piece you cracked open and no repairs needed, now you just need to repaint the legs to match cannonball.

I personaly think the smooth bucky cap mold legs repainted would work better (Shockers would be great cause they have the different kneepads and the brown boots, you'd just have to repaint the hips and legs), but if you want to have legs that have sculpted pants on them a good fit would be either Cap's legs from infinity war or Spiderman Noir's (youd just have to make sure the peg and peg holes are compatible between the legs and the torso, sometimes these change from mold to mold) Im sure in costumizing forums many people woud know.

    • 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.
