ShangChi replied to Wheel-Jack's topic in Marvelous News's General AreaThis is gonna be a good game. There will definitely be comparisons to the Batman Arkham series because I know that series is critically lauded as a fantastic example of video games based on comics. I know Spider-Man has the “it” factor to hold his own video game trilogy.
@Rukkdeez Thank you sir, you are a true gentlemen & a scholar. I’m excited to hear that they are at least thinking about giving us main hero themed character waves in a year thats not tied to a movie. However on the same token, that answer of “We follow Disney’s lead” is a little disheartening to hear and kind of head scratching when you think about it considering they are releasing about 10 waves a year now and have plenty of room to adequately tackle the movies with MCU focused waves (as they have been) AND release plenty of other waves. Great answer on the exclusives, that’s exactly what I was hoping would be said so I am very happy on that. Speaking of which...I wonder where that Days Of Future Past Sentinel set is going to land? That leaves, if you have the time/opportunity, to bring up their thoughts on HasLab, 12in Legends (I.E. simply put...will we see more?) and the 3.75 line as you already stated. In any case, it’s totally badass that you were able to pick their brains on some of these things we’ve been discussing and I genuinely appreciate it. Good stuff man, good stuff! P.S. I wonder if you could ask them if they have plans on revisiting more recent movies and releasing additional waves for them as well? With a 2nd Black Panther Wave landing about a year from the first wave AND it not being tied to any other movie, they kind of set a precedent for the current Legends line as they are essentially “re-visiting” the movie with a follow up wave a year later. I bring this question up mostly as in, if they can do it for Panther, can they do it for say...Ragnarok? I prefer comic waves over MCU waves but if we are talking brass tacs, I would be MUCH more open to purchasing a 2nd Thor Wave that gave us movie versions of GrandMaster, Collector, Skurge, Heimdall, BAF Kurse, etc...then a 2nd wave of MCU Panther figs. Considering the Ragnarok Wave we got was representative of the first real batch of Thor related legends we had gotten in YEARS...I can’t be the only collector interested in an additional Thor wave can I? Just figured I’d throw that out there lol. Thank you!
ShangChi replied to JayC's topic in Marvelous News's General AreaThis is a great way to bring life and discussion to these forums! Thanks JayC! Wishing everyone luck! The 3rd X-Men wave is absolutely astonishing and Hasbro keeps on hitting it out of the park with Avengers!
Still have SO MANY QUESTIONS ABOUT THE APOCALYPSE CLAWWWWW. Honestly, my first thought was that it was a Sentinel Easter egg! I had a Sentinel toy, probably from Hasbro, when I was little. The one where the chest opened and you could stick an X-Men member inside and pretended they were captured. It also had a claw on one hand that was connected by a string that you could pull out and bring back in and that claw was the first thing I thought of when I saw the thing on Apocalypse.

ShangChi replied to Wheel-Jack's topic in Marvelous News's General AreaAnt-Man and the Wasp are perfect choices for the next retro wave. Revealing them at comic-con around the same time as their movie is great marketing strategy. I’m thinking we’ll see more retro wave 2 reveals this weekend.
ShangChi replied to Wheel-Jack's topic in Marvelous News's General AreaYeah, Black Panther broke records. It’s only fitting that Hasbro supports that with a full MCU themed wave. It deserves it. M’Baku’s sculpt looks sooooo good! And Killmonger’s hair, yes!!!!! Love the opportunity to army build the Dora Milaje! Ahhhhh what a great first day of reveals.

GojiBill replied to Wheel-Jack's topic in Marvelous News's General AreaWonder if Klaw will get an alt head with no injuries.
GojiBill replied to Wheel-Jack's topic in Marvelous News's General AreaJust one more reason to stick with PS4.
ADour replied to Wheel-Jack's topic in Marvelous News's General AreaThese reveals have me hopeful. Not that I'm particularly psyched for these figures in particular, but that they might be an indicator that Hasbro is starting to take movie-based Marvel Legends seriously, especially since they're willing to release a proper amount of figures for a movie that came out six months ago.
GojiBill replied to Wheel-Jack's topic in Marvelous News's General AreaI loved Andy Serkis as Klaw. Was so bummed to see him killed off.

Malefact0r replied to Wheel-Jack's topic in Marvelous News's General AreaT’chaka, Klaue, killmonger, Black Panther powered suit, Black Panther w unmasked head, 2x Dora with multiple head sculpts, BAF M’Baku. Plus one comic figure? IF Shuri belongs to another wave. Though I wish the T’chala head would be with the powered suit. No regular BP and maybe 2 comic figure or maybe 3 Dora figures to round up the case of 8?
CobraSabotuer87- I brought up your suggestions regarding the Avengers and dropping waves in non movie years. I added that Marvel fans would continue to get characters previously absent, plus since no movie is involved, MCU fans wouldn't (couldn't) get bent. He (Tony) agreed and said they were already exploring that possibility. I also asked about the Framchises whose trilogies are up (Iron Man, Cap, Thor) and if there was anything cooking regarding them since they no longer have movies to base waves off of. That answer was of the vague variety. "We follow Disney's lead" and of course "It's always a possibility". Your question regarding the future of their exclusives in the wake of the TRU demise was met with a very direct answer: "We'll keep pumping them out and won't decrease because there's always someone (B&M or etail) who'll want to partner up". I think I got you covered with the exception of the 3.75" line. I'll hit that tomorrow.
