Of the retro four, only The Human Torch and Thing really excite me. Sue would have been good but something is wrong with her face and not interested in Salad Fingers Reed. Psychoman and H.E. are fine but don't care for the characters. No interested in clear Sue or depowered Johnny.

he 3 pack is nice, though I wish Domino didn't have that pink thing on her head.

That new head is, again, baffling. They can change up her hair without giving her that big jaw. the ones used before were superior, this is not an improvement, there's no point to it. Her effects should be clear, not milky. I'm gonna have to seriously consider getting another Invisible Woman from the Skrull BAF and use that head on this one.

Too many exclusives and a huge pass for the Fantastic Four set. All four of them just look awful. I will stick with my Walgreens set. The X-Force set looks nice and gets me excited until I see the Pulse/Disney store exclusive tag on them. I don't want to join that stupid over price club to get an early shot at these with no guarantee that I will be one of the lucky ones to be quick enough to score a set. 

I hate to think what they are going to do with the Excalibur set.

Man, every figure looks great, but I don't remember the last time Hasbro did a downright UGLY female head sculpt....hopefully it'll get fixed before it goes into production....

As for the hand, my head is telling me "animated style Morbius" by my heart says "Emplate from an upcoming Generation X wave"

Sadly It's not Emplate, he has a big mouth on his palm, not small holes/leeches.

Animated Morbius is a weird choose (though I do like @AnotherPunkChef idea of Emplate). But with the movie coming out it does make sense. 

 

Probably be released to cash in on the Morbius movie given the planned release (The Venompool one) as been out for ages.

the thing with exculsives is, Hasbro is contractually obligated to do them in order for big box stores to carry their product. Target doesn't NEED to carry Marvel Legends, Walmart doesn't NEED to carry Legends, but Hasbro NEEDS them to carry legends. so they have to do exclusives to keep the regular product in stores.

I still think the bigger crime is he doesn't come with a Jim Hammond head. No I won't stop campaign for Marvel's first superhero to be made event if he is just a swappable head.

Totally agree Jim Hammond needs a toy

The Thing....bangin! Awesome!!! I'm getting two! Human Torch....bangin, Awesome!! Mr Fantastic.....oh gawd....the Porn star grin again. Seriously, wtf is Hasbro's obsession with the Porn star grin??? Some kind of inside joke?? That look on his face is so effing stupid I can hardly stand it; Reed Richards had a look of stoic severity on is face like 99% of the time. And yes, the ET fingers. I don't ever remember him doing that in the 80s, so another fail there. I agree that he needs some kind of deluxe version with all kinds of stretchy limbs, like...you know...that he actually did in the comics??

And Invisible Woman....What's up with the 'Fighting a Giant Mutant Alien Skunk' face?? And why change hers of all faces now? 

Ehhhhh...any how, Psycho-Man and High Evolutionary are wicked awesome. Two major bucket list names scratched off the list now. It's too bad they didn't give P-M a pointing hand to push the buttons on his evil e-book of bad vibes. Still looks dope. 

The thing about Nova got me a little peeved. I know they've got to push Big G, I get it, it's the usual hustle and it's as old as time.  Even so, I'm really starting to hate this whole thing of trying to stoke fears in order to get people to buy a giant over-priced toy. I wonder if what the kid said about not seeing her in 2022 was a slip that she'd still get released down the road should the project not make it's goals?🤔

The FF look very good overall, but I wish they'd have just re-released the Skrull wave's Thing's head on this new one without the overspray that one had.  And yeah, I agree with everyone, Sue's head looks bad.  Probably will still get the set since these uniforms are so iconic, but High Evolutionary and Psycho Man definitely stole the show.  

I'm even less hyped about Galactus now that they still don't seem to acknowledge the issue with the huge backer number.  For those that already backed, I hope it hits the goal.  But after all this hype for Frankie Raye and now a new flame stand, the fact that it's so far from happening is just sad.

The Fantastic Four look pretty good for the most part, but I'm not a fan of Sue's face. I feel like it's unfortunate Reed is coming with the salad fingers again instead of the bendable arms. That labcoat looks like it would be a good fit for an Ant-Man figure. I wonder how difficult would it be to retrofit them into one. I'm impressed that Psycho-Man got that much new tooling. As for High Evolutionary, I can already picture a Chemistro being made with those arms and legs.

This kind of care for this wave makes me hopeful for the eventual Iron Man retro wave.

Animated Morbius? That’s exciting. Not getting anything else from today, I’m happy with the Walgreens F4 and I have no need for either of the others. The X-Force 3-pack looks cool, but I just recently sold off my X-Force collection, so no need for that either. Happy to everyone who’s been wanting these though.

We all know this. I am just stating why I am not interested in the FF retro line and giving feedback. I can just say I am not buying these and not post. I am just stating why I am not picking any of these up so Hasbro can take it in consideration.

The thing is I am a costumer and I am not obligated to buy everything Hasbro throws out. If it gets to a point where I am not happy with the product and the product is hard to get then I am done. No one gets any money, Not Hasbro, Not Pulse, Not Disney, Not Target, Not Walmart, and not the scalper using bots and running to the stores like a mad man grabbing everything off the shelves.

When enough people get fed up then everybody looses money. I am not posting anymore one this.......You either get it or you don't..........

Psycho Man looks great,  I usually think of High Evolutionary as being more fuchsia colored than red but still, good looking figure.

The FF also look nice.  Translucent Sue especially but Reed in lab coat is cool (although i think i would've preferred the stretch arms from the WG version over the elongated fingers from the skrull wave version.  Thing is probably the toughest call for me as i'm not sure if the alternate heads are enough for me to buy him again, guess it depends on whether i get reed or not.

Not much interest in the x-guys or animated Morbius but that's OK.

Wonder if that hint about the fire effect working for other fire characters is a hint that Firelord is one of the tiers?  Otherwise i suppose Human Torch attaching would be pretty cool, too.  Since i'm not getting Galactus kind of a moot point, tho
