  1. 2023 is the 60th anniversary of the X-Men and the Avengers. Maybe each IP will get a BAF wave celebrating this? I can easily see a 60th anniversary X wave featuring favorites like Banshee, Avalanche, Deathbird, Spiral and Feral. I would hope a 60th anniversary Avengers wave would be all classic, since there are still so many missing classic Avengers and villains - 1st appearance Wasp, Safari Jacket Wonder Man, Mantis, Yellowjacket update, 1st appearance Monica Rambeau, Sersi, Crystal, Swordsman, Jack of Hearts, classic Falcon, Moondragon, Stingray, Firebird, Starfox, classic Mockingbird, Count Nefaria, Graviton, M'Baku, Skurge, Moonstone, Titania, Blackout, classic Nebula, Morgan Le Fay, Collector, Grandmaster, Korvac, Super-Adaptoid and many, many others...

  2. Absolutely not. HE DOES NOT DESERVE HIS OWN FIGURE BEFORE ME AND MY FRIENDS.

  3. I'd like to see them experiment with a build-a-diorama. They couldn't be very big, but a 6-figure wave should be able to include six 4" x 4" square pieces that lock together. I'm thinking 2 bottom pieces that also have pegs (to server as figure stands) then go 2 pieces high. So they'd be 8" long x 8'' high by 4" wide when fully constructed from 1 wave. They could do various store fronts or something similar and make them lock together to create a full city block or street over multiple waves. If they thought through it enough and planned ahead they could build out these things on multiple levels (up) instead of just stretching out long wise also. I feel like this would be an interesting alternative to a BAF. Although it probably wouldn't save anything cost wise. For me as a collector, I've begun to find the diorama building the most challenging part of the hobby. The pre-built ones that aren't just cardboard have gotten to be outrageously expensive.

  6. The One:12 Collective Green Goblin sports his classic look, wearing a fitted bodysuit, tunic, and cross body satchel bag which can store his assorted bombs. 5 head portraits are included – three Green Goblin portraits with varying facial expressions and two unmasked Norman Osborne portraits. Green Goblin is never seen without his most prized invention, the Goblin Glider which he can securely attach to with the included foot straps. The Glider features hinged wings, two removable hover FX and thruster FX, and attaches to the included posing post. After the testing of an unstable strength-enhancing serum lands him in the hospital, Norman Osborne emerges smarter, stronger, and maniacal. Assuming the mantle of Green Goblin, Osborne uses his new powers to reign down chaos and destruction and attempt to settle his personal vendetta with Spider-Man. Price $112.00. This is currently available for pre-order at the Mezco store.

  7. Another hard pass, and this one is infuriating, because I really wanted a decent Madame Hydra and thought this time they'd get it right. Tossing her on this feeble, wobbly and warped buck is an insult. This is supposed to be a 5'9" 140lb grown woman. Its been over 10 years since the first Viper, and this one is barely better (but costs so much more). That's an embarrassment. But oh, it doesn't stop there- they made sure to deprive her of any updates whatsoever; the only good thing here is the holsters for the weapons...the holsters they didn't give the SHIELD agents. I'm not sure the Shriek mold could've done her justice but it would've been a damn sight better than this waste. Even the head sculpt is just "okay". Better than that mockery they used years ago, but what they should've done is included a spare head that had the facial scar. Really missed opportunities here. The comparison shot shows you just how little effort the hasbro team put into this.

  8. Although this is easily one of the best Spidey figures I'm still unhappy with the diaper look, I get that there's not much they can do but what they can do in order to make it more seamless would be putting a "web belt" on the diaper itself instead of cutting it at the torso so the diaper wouldn't stand out on its own and would effectively blend into costume.

  9. It would be a good idea, but Marvel Legends wave selection and Bafs hasn't been very logical and I doubt that will change.

  10. I can see that. Sadly the team doesn't pick the waves the way we collectors would want. I'd love to get the Griffin and/or the Harpy, but the way for that would be BAF, because getting either as a Deluxe (with the prices they now know they can get away with charging), we're looking at $60-80.00. And Marvel Legends just aren't worth that. One other thing, I feel they can do a BAF wave with 4-5 figures instead of the standard 7. Head for one figure, upper/lower torso for another, 2 arms for figure #3, 2 legs for figure#4, wings and tail for the 5th figure. Something like that anyway.

  11. I hope they keep doing the more obscure characters as BAFs. Seems the only possible way we will ever get Bushmaster, Griffin, Attuma, or a comics accurate Executioner. they should do a deluxe for the Brotherhood, though. A three pack of Blob, Avalanche, and Destiny would sell well, even at a price point over $100.

  13. First off, it's as ridiculous as I thought it would be. Either they need to use mock up pictures of what the figure would look like if it was a window box or someone at Hasbro needs to get John Tyler Christopher on the horn to do some nice looking, if a bit inaccurate art for the boxes. Just putting the "official" product shots on the front is super cheesy and just plain ayass cheap. Yeah I know, I know, artists cost money, but don't we pay enough for these things, and especially on these special editions that don't come with a BAF part or many accessories either, the least they can do is make them look decent. Personally, I can imagine the MIB crowd is none to happy about how these look either, but I can imagine it'll be even much worse. I'm not an MIB guy but as a collector I know what I wanna spend my money on and MIB'ers support the line as much as anyone else. And good luck to all the MIB'ers out there who buy from the Brick 'n' Mortars, because you can't actually open the boxes, and who knows what the hell is in the box? At that point your just counting on the fact that whatever is said to be in the box is actually in the box.....but you can't be sure. There could be an old Toybiz figure in the box, there could be and old Power Ranger in the box, there could be a freaking half a roll of Pilsbury biscuits in the box. At that point you're basically paying for only a box full of faith. And then, if you ever get into a situation where you buy one, never open it, then sell it for $600 dollars on the secondary market, what's to keep the person you sold it to from just saying the figure was a swap? Yep, the MIB crowd is gonna suffer the most. Another thing I have a concern with here, and it has been brought up by others, and I think the actual answer is not something anyone is gonna like, but what about the recent Toybiz Retro line? How do they plan on approaching this? I'm 99 percent sure what the answer to that is already though. In order for these figures to remain "authentic" they are still going to come in the same packaging, but since they are still gonna be using plastic bubbles Hasbro's gonna have to tack on a few extra dollars on the already too inflated cost of the figure. For the environment. Cuz if your gonna continue to "ruin" the environment while you stand on your soapbox and wave your environmental flag while you do it, you might as well make a few extra bucks while doing it. Y'know, for the future......and stuff.

  14. I came in here actually solely to see what this new packaging is all about, and how the figure was held inside, I guess it's what I imagined, what is really the most unironic elements of this packaging was poor Dan got to show us exactly one of the big huge fears of these windowless packages, some terrible paint apps. Nice one Hasbro, not curbing our worries at all with this. the environment will be happy, but we might all end up with a collection that half the figures look like Jackson Pollock did the deco.

  15. Glad that helped you out, I personally really like the figure, nothing I would have changed except the emblem on the chest being a lighter shade, I'm just happy to have a new classic comic strange for the ranks.

  16. We've needed a new Howard in Legends for years. It's kind of hard to believe Hasbro hasn't made a figure of him yet. With Blade, I assume you mean the "Vampire Wars" figure and not the main figure from the movie line.

  17. I'm down for this. Classic DD on the new Vulcan buck. Powerman on the Herc buck. Iron Fist on anything but the Pizza Spidey buck. Psst........Hasbro, this is one time where the Sunfire buck would be appropriate. There's a lot of street level heroes that need some love. We know Echo will be getting an MCU figure eventually, but what about a comic version now? Nomad? Duggan? Solo? There are so many classic villains that thay can tie in to anniversary lines too. I'm just tired of all the same MCU characters over and over again.

  18. i mean at this point every year is probably the anniversary of a dozen different comic beginnings/famous storylines/marvel movies, so i think its tricky to predict what anniversary theme they might choose. I wonder if they will try and continue with the 20th line or retro lines once they eliminate plastic from packaging, seems like a lot of the appeal would be gone. That said, i do expect hasbro to revisit some of the older toybiz figures they haven't redone already, feels like we've moved past the 90s and now the aughts are hitting their prime, in terms of nostalgia. i could be wrong Mainly just looking forward to getting more characters that fall into my primary collecting focus area, namely comics characters from 60s thru mid 80s. However, i anticipate the number of "new" characters that fall into that group will continue to diminish each year, and also that more and more of them will be either exclusives or part of 2-pack, 3-pack, etc. Hopefully more cosmic characters as well, from any era.

  19. It's Venom with a tongue shaped like a S and a three. So the villain is obviously going to be Bully Maguire from Spider-Man 3

  20. I ditto this, it's one of the reasons why I am still so actively a fan of Marvel Legends, because sometimes we get surprise goodies like Maggot....or like D'Spayre! This is the best figure of the wave for sure.

  24. I think the Daredevils we have are outstanding. However if there's a move to retire the "buckycap" mold then DD needs an upgrade. The armored version was well done, the problem is that its smaller than the classic, and they should all be the same size. Now....if we're talking a different character....then let's see some figures that have never been done before. Like RED WOLF! RED RAJAH! ARABIAN KNIGHT! NAMORITA! M-11 THE HUMAN ROBOT! And if anyone's really into Daredevil, then what about one of his old enemies, GLADIATOR!

  25. Best get used to saying "20th Century Studios" (and "Searchlight Pictures"). 20th Century Fox no longer exists. "Fox" is just too heavily associated with the broadcasting, sports and "news" companies Disney doesn't own. One of Disney's stated reasons for buying 20th Century Fox was so they'd have an outlet for more adult-oriented films, something they haven't had since they got rid of Miramax and shuttered Touchstone. So yeah, pretty much anything Disney wants to target at adults more than kids/families will be/is being released through 20th Century.

  29. Vulcan mold will do fine but I can see them using the upcoming Spidey Mold with some new parts, that body is already too buff for Spidey and would fit DD better as well as provide extra articulation needed for acrobatic characters but it might need to have new parts like boots that make him taller.

  32. I like this buck alright, but it will be nice when they finally get around to doing same sized buck with butterfly shoulders so they can stop doing crap like Surfer and Firelord on that idiotic Sunfire buck. The thing about this buck is, much like the Juggernaut buck, it looks really odd in the "at attention" straight up and down stance. It almost has the outline of those ridiculous 3.75 inaction figures. Dan Who will straight out admit that he's terrible at posing figures so pretty much all he does is the straight up and down, but if you look at previewers that are better at posing this figure certainly looks a lot better.

  33. I dunno about this figure, it's a disappointment for me, we are getting really good figures for the most part but this ain't it. This figure makes me realize how bad the arms on this figure are, they aren't muscular enough and are improperly attached to the shoulder, shoulders should bulge out while this figure has no such thing, you can notice a difference in these pics too when you see how much better Bucky Cap arms look. The Head they made also seems way too big which makes the body look even smaller. Box art (again) shows what U.S.Agent should have looked like. I wonder if this figure can be remedied with new arms and a smaller head, maybe a head swap with an older figure can be of some benefit.

  34. Gotcha! Yeah there were a handful of sculpts that were similar for sure (the two you mentioned, as well as Peter Parker, Archangel, Multiple Man, Rictor), but I kinda dug them all and thought it brought a consistency of artists, but I definitely see how this one could bug you.

  37. Box art is good and on point but nothing about the actual figure says Morph. Doesn't look like him so if you were actually into the animated figures it kinda sucks. No dirt off my shoes cuz I don't like cartoon stylized figures of any kind, but if I was I'd have liked for the figure to at least resemble the cartoon. The art is on the box and the artist was certainly capable of getting it right. How did you manage to screw it up that bad, guys? Plus it looks like they put him on either the Bucky Cap buck or the Vulcan buck, hard to tell. If there was ever a time to use that infernal Sunfire buck, this was it. This officially makes Morph, who was generally portrayed smaller and thinner in the carton, larger than both Silver Surfer and Firelord. I thought the weightlessness of the cosmos was supposed to make you taller, but I guess the ML team has no use for trivial things like science or physics or official data. Na, Marvel just pretty much pulls everything straight outta their ayass, why would they not carry it over to their products? Gotta love the continuos Hasbro scale antics.

  38. Ugh, what a disappointment. I've really been looking forward to this figure- one of my most-wanted X-Men characters. Both heads are too small, especially the "normal" one. The "Dark Morph" one is ok, though he looks mildly beaver-toothed. The regular Morph head is tiny, and very generic looking. Morph has a very distinct look, including his pointy chin. I'm also hoping he comes with something besides the extra head and hands, at least one more head, but even if he doesn't, I would've been happy if he just, y'know, looked like the actual character. Is it just me, or is Hasbro getting worse with the likenesses on non-MCU characters? Is this another Paul Harding sculpt...?
