  1. There are a distressing number of comic fans who seem blissfully ignorant of the fact that they've grown up (relatively speaking) to be people that Steve Rogers would be a hell of a lot more likely to punch in the face than agree with. And who are amazingly ignorant of how progressive and "woke" superhero comics in general have been for oh, I dunno...as far back as Superman taking on abusive husbands and slumlords when Action Comics was still in single-digits.

  2. Marvel has always prided itself on being "The world outside your window." Ignoring social ills and political climates just so people can feel comfortable with themselves means it's no longer meeting that statement. Being able to "not pay attention to Politics" means you can ignore problems exist because you feel like they don't affect you (and indeed they might not...or you might even benefit from the status quo, even if you might not realize exactly how), and if you remain ignorant of a problem then you cannot be any real part of helping to solve the problem.

  3. Maybe if evil white men would stop oppressing black women, they wouldn't need to talk about it. Seems like this is a problem that solves itself if you just act like a decent human, instead of getting annoyed and offended by all those people asking for dignity and equality.

  6. In the mirror? I'll see a straight cis white man. I have never been the victim of racism. Not once. That's the sort of privilege I enjoy as a white man in the US. Bigotry only has power when it comes from people who enjoy social privilege. One person hating people with a particular characteristic is a symptom of bigotry, not bigotry itself. I don't harbour bias against white people. I just pay attention, and listen to non-white people when they tell me how their lives are affected by my actions.

  7. I can't speak for anyone but me, but I really don't care how anybody throws away their money . . . it's THEIR money. What bugs me, is that there are now figures that the other 99% of us will never see because Hasbro smells the blood in the water. There's never gonna be a BAF or Deluxe figure of Galactus, a Celestial, or Fin-Fang-Foom as long as HasScam can can count on schmucks to throw money at a ridiculously over sized, over produced, over priced version. While I'm at it, it kinda bugs me that Hasbro rewards these people with more money than common sense, while the other 99% of us, many

  8. As a retailer who has to consider my margins very carefully to make sure my staff is paid and the lights stay on, I can reliably tell you that $150 is actually a terrible margin on $500, and pretty standard for the toy industry (which subsists entirely on unsustainably low margins for retailers, a big part of why “wahh, why don’t retailers stock enough of anything” and “wahh, why are these toys so expensive” are complaints that are fundamentally at odds with one another; they would stock more if people would pay more). It’s cool that you got bootleg sentinels for cheaper and are happy with the

  17. Once again, foolishness from the Hasbro team. Leaving money on the table!! Do an Inhumans wave including Maximus (and Lockjaw as the BAF), or box set of the Royal Family + Lockjaw and put that jank on Hasbro Pulse (but in enough quantities that it doesnt sell out in 2 minutes please and thank you). I was content with not doing Black Bolt and Medusa because they've already been done, but both could do with an update. And none of this "updated" armor/hoodie/tattoo/90s streetwear nonsense. Get off my lawn. So very odd that they did Bolt, Medusa, Triton AND Karnak in 3.75" form but never Tri

  18. What they need to do is give us a flamed on Torch in that body mold. The Walgreens release was just way too big. I'd use that one for my Original Human Torch, blur out the face. We also need to get a translucent/clear Invisible Woman. How on earth has this taken so long?? I'd say, again, that Hasbro has just been sleeping on the wealth of figures the Fantastic Four 'verse could bring to the Legends team. To your point on villains, Yes! Mole Man & his Moloids (troop builders, and lets not forget Skrull troop builders), Impossible Man, Molecule Man, Dragon Man, Annihilus, Blastarr

  20. Definitely agree with this. As for why there is an argument, it comes down to two complaints: 1. "I don't want to buy figures for characters i don't want just to complete the BAF - why can't he just be sold separately??" This neglects that of course you CAN buy the BAF separately on ebay etc but it will cost at least $60 in most cases, and often considerably more. People like to point to deluxe figures but in most cases those are priced lower because they are repaints of an existing BAF (that is, the tooling costs were already part of an earlier wave's budget).

  21. I think Hasbro has hit the perfect divide of BAFS and Deluxe figures. Some characters that have a strong enough of a presence like WarMachine, Red Hulk, Toxin, Archangel get very nice deluxe releases that sell phenomenally, then the more obscure or less likely to get solo releases or are harder to fit into standard packaging like Man Thing, Wendigo, Sugar Man, Strong Guy get the BAF treatment. A either way we get to choose to chase the BAF or get the deluxe really it’s win/ win. I really don’t get why there is even an “argument”. Don’t get the whole MCU vs Comic “ fight” either. We are in

  25. I don't get all of the people complaining about the Shang-Chi movie figures- they all look very well-done to me. The face-painting tech has gotten very good, and the sculpts all look great. Agreeing about the clothing texture- it all looks very well done. Just because someone doesn't collect MCU figures, it doesn't mean they should blindly hate on them. Personally, I'm really looking forward to this movie- it's another facet of The MCU that hasn't been explored yet, the part full of Eastern martial arts badassery.

  28. During one of the interviews with Hasbro's Marvel team, Dwight hinted that he eventually wants to do a retro line based on the Ghost Rider line from Toybiz (for more info - https://www.figurerealm.com/actionfigure?action=seriesitemlist&id=90). People have started listing their wants for the wave on the Q+A thread in the news section but I thought we would all start listing them here. A couple of things to note though. DO NOT expect the bikes to come in this line. There wouldn't be enough room on the card back format for a bike. Plus it would drive the price of the figure through the

  29. Ursa Major seems like the main reason for IM wave's success because it looks like a kickass figure whether you know the character or not, which brings us to the first point as to why BaFs are such an important factor to Marvel Legends' success and why it wouldn't be a great idea to get rid of them. As to being compelled to buy or not a figure based on what you saw in a movie it's very subjective and relative to each movie and person. You may like the figure but hate the movie (Venom, in my case), ignore the figure but love the movie (T'Chaka in my case), or be ignorant of the characters,

  31. This isn't surprising per se, but a very simple repaint that I would like is a '60s/'70s era Professor Xavier. Take the Riders Xavier with the Jim Lee/animated series hover chair, repaint the suit blue or brown and put him in the normal wheelchair from the Fox movie 2-pack. They could add a little flannel blanket to throw over his legs.

  32. In a way, I'm honestly relieved. I'd rather they make a hundred series based on these throw-away social justice spawned characters, with all the attendant politicizing and counter-culture pontificating, than have them make one show based on a character I actually like, just to warp said character to push whatever agenda happens to be in vogue.

  34. Its not just cringeworthy, its a great example of the weak, amateurish writing they have these days. It doesn't even make sense. You have to be "unworthy" to get the powers?? What is that, 80-90% of the population? So, just about anybody can pick up the Ebony Sword and now have powers?

  35. Yeah, I don't think Hasbro could make a "Marvel Legends" Conan, though if they did it would almost certainly be an SDCC/Hasbro Pulse exclusive and nothing else. The thing is the rights for Conan are...complicated. They've passed through a lot of hands and been through some disputes over the years, some of which were never fully resolved. In 2028 all of Robert E. Howard's Conan stories (and the elements created within them) should become public domain, as well, which will make things...interesting. But Hasbro seems to shy away from the public domain characters so far (Toy Biz

Maybe they could take Indy and his best known characters and alternate between other action series like @makomentioned in 6-7 figure waves. my choice would be a JAWS line. The greatest movie in history needs a great action figure wave. My ideal wave: 1. Chief Brody ( Amity Police uniform, beaches closed sign, revolver) 2. Hooper (camera, styrofoam cup, license plate, Shark tracker, barrel accessory) 3. Quint ( beer can, spear gun, machete, removable baseball cap, barrel accessory) 4. C

I wonder if she ll even do martial arts in the movie.. shes basic comic relief and they give her a weapon to feel special. I guess thats why shes in an immovable dress. That bow and arrows are cool tho.

  40. Totally on board for a Cap repaint. Not sure if they need a new chest piece but U.S. Agent could be done on this body as well. I know many say Agent needs to be bigger but I think he’d be fine. Although when ToyBiz did this, the molded Star was just painted over and he looked super cheap/ knock off. for minimal tooling, Red Guardian could be turned into the Swordsman easily enough.

  41. I’d actually love for DC figures to get a line in scale to Legends. McFarlane’s line, while are finally spreading out from Batman and Superman, are just too tall and frankly oddly Articulated. I bought the first waves Bats and Supes but quickly realized if you try to pose them in any way but standing they look ridiculous. Too bad that Mattel seemed to finally get their $#!% together in their last few waves ( outside of some characters having supersized heads).
