Yeah they should have gone with the blue

Yes, that would’ve been the ideal redeco for this buck imo. Liked your digibash on it, btw 👍. That and Blaze in his brown trench coat were really my only expectations for him on this card.

Yeah, I'm not even sure where that assumption about Mephisto even came from. I actually think it was someone on these forums that suggested it or said they heard someone on the ML team suggest it, but no one I know of has been able to locate the quote or video. I think it was just put out there and people took it as fact because it actually sounds like the kind of hypocritical, illogical, senseless, backwards, double speak Disney has that tendency towards, but there's really nothing in Mephisto or Blackheart that directly ties with "the Devil" and I think that they did Ghost Rider at all indicates that they don't have that much problem doing occult type characters. I think Mephisto will eventually be done, but I still do think it will be done as a deluxe set with his thrown as an online or Amazon exclusive. It just makes more sense to me, not only as a way to make more money on a long awaited figure they know a large percentage of the fanbase will get, but as a figure Toybiz never did and they want to probably go all out on. I do think Blackheart will be a BAF just for sheer size sake as I think he requires a little more plastic that Hasbro likes to use for tier rewards.


The assumption came from Karen the collector.

But in all seriousness, previous villains we’ve gotten with nazi backgrounds give me no reason to believe that Mephisto, Blackheart, etc could/would/should not be done. Just doesn’t make a lick of sense to me.
I always envisioned Blackheart being offered as a baf somewhere eventually but can also see him getting a deluxe/special release of some sort. And Mephisto can easily find a home on the GR retro card if not like, say, a 2nd villain wave or something. A throne isn’t a crucial piece imo nor something I’d wanna pay extra for, personally.

Oh, I'm not one to believe they are afraid to release Mephisto either, I was just saying for argument's sake, if that were the case, then releasing it in a Haslab would be the path of least resistance. There is some validity to the claim though - something about film censorship in other countries related to the Devil, though I never heard it in association with toys.

Thanks for liking the Digibash. I still hoping for a version of Armoured Blaze.

So do we think that $27.99 is now the normal retail price for retro carded figures? Or is that just because this was a fan channel exclusive? Or are they testing this price point to see how it does?

It's part of the 20th anniversary line so it would be more expensive but yes, fan channel are usually a bit more expensive.

Not loving Hasbro Pulse today. Bought one Ghost Rider, then went back to buy another. System told me I'd already bought the max per customer (2), even though I checked my order, and it was clearly one fig. Tried to contact Customer Service, and now.....sold out. I don't understand how a company of their size, etc. manages to mess up simple things like that or the recent sale they had where I ordered several items, only to have some canceled, because they apparently sold more than they truly had. Oh well.

SO, who else are we guessing we might get in a Ghost Rider Wave? Guessing that between this and the Haslab project, we could get any or all of the following: Blackheart, Blackout, Lilith, Orb, Nightmare, Mephisto, Vengeance, Werewolf By Night, Outcast, and Zarathos? My guess is Mephisto and Blackheart and Lilith will be tier add-ins with the Haslab, while Blackout, Orb, Nightmare and Vengeance are likely candidates for the GR Wave.

Does WereWolf by Night have any connection to Ghost Rider that he could be considered for the GR retro wave? Or just adding him because he is another Supernatural character? 

Either way, I’d LOVE to see what Hasbro could do with their take on the Werewolf..

Thanks, good info. 

Either way, if Werewolf By Night is ever announced I’m buying 20. Well no, but this would be my level of excitement
