Haslab MCU Hall of Armor

Recommended Posts

So I rewatched Iron Man 3 (its good), and I thought, how cool would it be if we got a 59 figure boxed set of all of the MCU Iron Man figures (MKs 1-50 plus 85) Rescue, the 4 War Machine figures, and Tony, Pepper, and Rhodey? I think it would TOTALLY be worth the 500 dollar price tag. Maybe bump it up to 60 figures by including Happy or Morgan...

I saw the title and thought it was going to be a suggestion for a Hall of Armor diorama setup.

If my math is correct, $500 divided by 60 figures works out to roughly $8.33 cents per figure. I can't see Hasbro being that generous.

I would still gladly pay 1200 bones, and make the packaging the Hall

It would work given the price but I would doubt they would do 50-60 figures. 20-30 figures might be more likely

that would be epic..but I don't see them making all those armors

With the exception of say, Igor and Bones, most of them would just be repaints of current figures with different arms or heads.

i guess they could cheapen it by putting some of the less desirable armours with limited articulation , but then again i dont know if anyone would go for that

I don't think there's a reliable way to determine which are the truly less desirable armors. Someone will always say "ugh I wanted >insert armor number< and they cheaped out on it"

If they ever did do an MCU HoA, I'd say they go for the diorama with either MK 1-7+ Mk42 and Tony Stark. Or the diorama and maybe 10 of the most unique armors (Igor, for example). Thinking about constraining it to the 500 usd mark.

seems like a cool idea, I personally have no interest in this at all. but I can see how people would be stoked to get this. I wouldn't even consider buying something like this even if the price was amazing like 1 dollar a figure

Sure I would support this idea. Any chance I can get to get those early armors from the first few movies in modern articulation.  My only suggestion would be to have them the same size-ish as the MCU FIRST 10 YEARS Iron Man. That figure looked like how a man in armor should look.

It's a reasonably cool idea but I'm not sure how well a giant box set of one of the most-produced characters in the Marvel line would sell to collectors.  I think there'd be a LOT of complaints about "too many iron men."

That said, I would be happy to get at least Mk. 1, 3, and 5 in modern sculpting and articulation.  But I think that could probably be a non-Haslab exclusive.

Honestly I'm not sure what way to go with Haslab for Marvel Legends.  The Sail Barge was something Star Wars fans had been clamoring for for years, and more importantly had never been done before.  Unicron makes a lot of sense for Transformers (though I think it's suffering from a lot of people who might have the earlier version considering it "good enough" especially when you can still get it on the secondary market for a lot less than Haslab is asking for theirs).  

 

I just can't think of a single Marvel-oriented item that has that kind of "majority" appeal, if that makes sense?  Upsized Galactus, Sentinel, etc...?  Well OK...but like Unicron a fair number of people might consider earlier versions good enough.  Vehicles?  Kinda neat but aside from effectively being glorified figure cases for a half-dozen figures that display well what do they really do?  Team packs for more "niche" teams?  I probably like that idea the best but at the same time niche characters/teams don't seem to do so well on-pegs.  I dunno.  But I do know that I'd love to see them try something.

I may be on the wrong, but I have a feeling it would have to be MCU oriented for it to have a broader appeal. Then again, other than the Milano or Quinjet, I don't think there's a big or ambitious enough project, and I'm not sure they're that broad enough. Specially after considering your point of them being glorified figure cases. 

Then again, if we were to get something that could be used either for MCU or Comic... maybe it could have enough pull... but I can't think of anything specific, like you said.

If I were a betting man, I'd bet that the decision will come down to whether they make a MCU Quinjet or a comic-based Master Mold.

that might be the most likely, though maybe a fin fang foom could also be near the top

You are right! I wouldn't go for it.  I dropped the Marvel Universe 4" line for that very reason. They wanted to sell the figures at the same price (actually higher than when they started), but with less features and articulation? Seriously? No thank you.

    • Humanity aspires to prolong life expectancy, increasing its quality. Life expectancy is the expected (in the statistical sense) number of years of life remaining at a given age. In other words, it is the average number of years that a person or animal can expect to live. If in 1900 life expectancy was 47 years of age, it has increased from 45 to 63 years from the1950’s (Life Expectancy Tables n.d.). Thus, life expectancy is constantly increasing. This fact should make people happy. One might observe not only an increase in the proportion of the older population in the age structure of society and a gradual increase of life expectancy, but also a process called by scientists as “the rejuvenation of the population”. The population of developed countries, thanks to the development of medicine, keeps their health strong and a youthful appearance longer. It influences different processes, which have psychological, cultural, and social characters. Moreover, one should not forget that the real goal of scientists-gerontologists and all who are involved in overcoming aging is not only to increase life expectancy, but also to prolong health and youth. Increased life expectancy is a result of various factors. There are the development of medicine and health care, improving the quality of nutrition and living conditions, the development of technologies that help conserve energy and strength among them. A spread of set of cosmetic procedures of maintaining a good appearance such as plastic surgery, hardware and “pharmaceutical” cosmetology also makes a great contribution to the “rejuvenation” of the population. There is a trend in medicine called “anti-aging”. Moreover, many diseases and conditions commonly associated with aging have become “older”. Hormone replacement therapy also contributes to the health and activity of women. Such a “rejuvenation” of the population often gives a new emphasis to very different processes. However, the increase in the average age of the population has far-reaching implications as well as a serious impact on the planning and implementation of social policy generally. Nonetheless the UN is concerned because for the first time in history, by 2050 there will be more senior citizens over 60 years of age than 15 year old children. Current paper discusses why it happens and what problems life expectancy might cause for modern society. The Problems for Modern Society Caused by Increased Life Expectancy · Social problems. Some researchers believe that there is a problem of coexistence of generations due to the increase in life expectancy. Today, all the infrastructure elements of life are focused on creating the conditions for a full life of one generation, while at least two generations have the demand for it. Life expectancy increases, causing not only a joy a for person’s friends and relatives, but also new problems both for the state, and for all those who in one way or another are affected by the increase in financial expenses due to an increase in the duration of life of the retired. There are public and private pension funds, health authorities and social security. The need to pay more pensions depends on the amount of taxes that the young working population will pay. The increase in pension payments will require increased taxation so the state could pay all the pensions. The increase in the number of people who are over 60 will require an increase in the quantity and quality of medical care and service. In turn, it will require a large amount of additional financial costs. They will be required not only to keep constant supply and improving the level of medicines and medical equipment, but also to attract a growing number of health care workers. Moreover, much more old people’s homes and other care units must be built in order to provide all for seniors. · Economic problems. Due to life expectancy, a large number of people over 60 will continue working in factories and companies. Despite the improvement of the quality of their physical and mental health, they will still give way to the younger generation in power energy, speed of reaction and endurance. As a consequence, countries, which will be dominated by older workers, will be less competitive in the global market. Their level of economic development and progress will be lower than in those countries where the workers are young people. Moreover, equally important problem is the fact that increasing numbers of older people can cause them to compete with the younger generation in the workplace. As a result, the younger generation might perceive people over 60 rather negatively. Young people might begin to consider the elderly as those who deprive them of work. Mankind has always sought to increase life expectancy. Recent advances of various kinds of sciences, including medicine, allow people to count on a significant increase in life expectancy. Every day scientists create new kinds of drugs, antibiotics and vaccines that not only fight various diseases, but also prevent their occurrence successfully. In addition, the improvement of living conditions, nutrition and other factors that are characteristic of developed countries contributes to life expectancy. It seems that the increase in life expectancy solves many problems and allows people around the world to have a long and high qualitative life, constantly opening up new opportunities for self-development. Nevertheless, life expectancy may cause some problems for modern society. There is the need for large amounts of additional finance for social sector (pensions and health care among them. In addition, no less important can become an economic problem since a large number of older workers might cause economic decline.

    • Kang, classic Ultron, Annihilus,  Blastaar,  Super Skrull, Viper/ Madame Hydra. All these were in some previous incarnation during Toybiz/early Hasbro ML time. They need to be updated; I don't include Dr Doom because we all know he's coming. Couldn't resist putting these on: Super Adaptoid,  Count Nefaria,  Sebastain Shaw, Bushmaster. Far as I know they didn't make ML before (did Count N make Marvel Universe?) but it goes to show, Hasbro's got a lot of figures to draw from that haven't ever been seen.  
    • Would definitely get: 1. Mr Fantastic ("negative" uniform, stretch effect arms and legs if poss) 2. Thing ("negative" trunks, 2 fists, 2 open hands, one head mouth open) 3. Invisible Woman - clear variant 4. Human Torch- all red, translucent, correct body buck 5. Sub-Mariner - 70s "water wings" navy/black outfit 7. Super Skrull 8.  Annihilus BAF  
    • YES. None of that yellow head nonsense. Toss in some good flame effects and youre golden!
    • Great job! That alt head looks more like the Emma Frost we all know and love!
