    The problem I have with that effect is that its so awkward and really didn't have to be. You just don't throw anything like that. They should've gone with something like this (from either of these examples but the one where he flings it at the Hulk is probably the best).

    Toe articulation is fine for Beast and perhaps a few other figures could use it. I find finger articulation unsightly on the toybiz figs I own which have it, plus it makes it hard for them to hold accessories and they never seem to be able to form a good fist anyhow

    No. Finger articulation is a bad idea. It made the hand fatter then should to accommodate the fingers and the finger would get bend, wrapped and alot of the time break off. Toe articulation, while great for figures like spidey, also have this problem but would also make the figure hard to stand. Beside, except for the elbows on female figure, we are getting plenty of articulation on figure. Don't ruin it with articulation we don't need especially with all the hands and stuff we get

    The current ML is the comfortable medium between too much articulation (Toybiz) and not enough articulation (McFarlane, even currently) finger articulation is overboard and really makes the figure look bad. Jazzwares is making it work but they are designing the accessories (a word Hasbro is not familiar with) to accommodate them and I don't think they would lose any support of they did away with it altogether. Toe articulation is on par with butterfly articulation. It may help for some figures but not always necessary. I like that they take it as a character based decision such as Beast and Spider-Man. Some people are bugged by the females' lack of double jointed elbows, but I can understand it was a judgment call made on behalf of aesthetics and I can respect that. I personally don't like the way the double joints make the much thinner female arms look and the female figures that do have them are quite flimsy and have a tendency to tear as the thickness of the material of the hinges have to be made much thinner than a male buck. Though cost is the bottom line most of the time, there's still a bit of science and reasoning in most of what Hasbro does, and the concert of putting out product that's more fragile and flimsy and breakable than standard is paramount. So no, the biggest issue Hasbro has is not the articulation itself but the lack of specific accessories designed to work with the available articulation, and the nitpicking of minor costs to do so is the problem. A prime example is the recent Gamerverse Spider-Men from the Demogoblin wave. One comes with facial webbing, another comes with body webbing. Neither of them is not all that bulky or even that well done. Would it really have been that much trouble or cost to include both accessories with both figures?

    A Marvel style Godzilla would be insane! Red Ronin even more so!! Yes, all you fellow fans of a younger vintage; Marvel Godzilla was a thing, and it was awesome! Well, we can dream, but you never know!

    They did an outstanding job, though with Thor, I do wish they would've included a bearded head and a whirling hammer effect. along with finding a way to make his hair softer so you can move his head more...and why oh why they went with that horrible "brick" color instead of red is just beyond me! I HATE that.

    Finger articulation never looks quite right and aside from the other issues mentioned also tends to get loose pretty quickly/easily. Toe articulation depends on the figure, really.

    Not sure how "easy" that would have been without wrecking how "good looking" the figure is. Don't think I need my Kingpin to be able to do Yoga poses.

    Well, another year, another Godzilla movie. I still want a BAF of Marvel's interpretation of the character . . . or at least the mutated version Doctor Demonicus brewed up in Iron Man #193. A Red Ronin BAF would be greatly appreciated to.

    Agreed! Heck, I think a straight re-release of the Diamond Select version would be in everyone's best interests!

    Uatu the Watcher. Neither Toy Biz nor Hasbro has done any version of the character despite being a long standing classic fixture of the Marvel Universe. He transcends any specific affiliation so he could be attached to any series of figures. Diamond Select did a figure long ago but has never re-released it, so it’s expensive on the secondary market. If not a BAF then hopefully we can get him as a deluxe figure or online exclusive.

    To me, the figures in the wave are as important as the BAF itself. My ideal X wave and BAF would be:

    The Toy Biz Elektra is a lanky, cut up, frankenhooker mess, and while the Toy Biz Bullseye is a great looking figure, the articulated fingers and toes get stress wear and break way too easily, plus with the QC issues that Hasbro has been having the past couple years, I think adding more articulation is a bad move...

    Finger articulation is bad because sometimes, well most of the time you just want a fist and finger articulation makes bad fists and it also make holding accessories problematic. Toes would be fine.
