  1. I can't speak for everyone but I personally am more worried about OTHER people I might expose to the virus, whether I am vaccinated or not. Isn't that crazy? Actually being accountable for the health of others around me instead of just myself? Your thought methodology has largely contributed to how we got where we are in the first place. And why we're now going backwards; everyone is so caught up in "ME, ME ME, MY RIGHTS, MY BODY, MEEEEE!" that they've clearly stopped thinking about anyone else. And, because I know I'm going to have to dumb this down, a realistic scenario is this: 1) Vaccinated person is exposed to the virus. 2) The same vaccinated person is then exposed to someone who thinks there are nano machines or something in the vaccine and so has decided to abstain. Maybe this happened in a crowded movie theatre. 3) Non-vaccinated person then gets sick. Rinse and repeat. It really is that simple. I'm really disappointed in how this country has politicized something that should just be basic common sense and human decency. If wearing a "face diaper" might save someone's life (even if there's just a chance it will), I will gladly wear it. Only truly selfish people would put their "rights" above the health of everyone around them.

  3. Ok, so we pretty much know all of the legends that are dropping in 2021 and it seems to have been a good year as I think most of us have knocked at least a couple of most wanted characters off our list. I got a quasar after all, who saw that coming? So let's do a poll of most wanted for 2022. Here is how it works: Choose 5 characters that are your most wanted. It can be new or redos or whatever, can be normal or deluxe sizes. List them in order of most desired being #1 second most desired #2 etc. The order matters as I will keep a tally. Again most desired = lowest number. Choose 5 and only 5. for me #1 Classic Drax the destroyer #2 Mephisto #3 Starfox #4 Classic Dr Strange #5 Firelord

  4. Green Quicksilver is a good choice ...I want a classic Wanda that looks like the custom I just finished.

  6. If you don't intend to whine about the choice of figures and disrespect the people who do like them, you might want to rephrase some of your post. You don't like a lot of the new reveals or how frequently they come out? Okay, that's your feeling, cool. But I for one definitely have asked for a Hammerhead on this board and even suggested how they could do it. I've also heard lots of people asking for symbiote Spidey on the retro buck and a new classic Shocker and Hobgoblin. So when you say "literally no-one asked" for these figures... uh, I think you're wrong there.

  14. Marvel (comics) has become such a predictable shadow of it's former self. Teasing the real Captain Marvel, the one everyone liked and wanted, just to try and get a sales boost. This gimmick will give the boost they want so they can claim the book is doing just fine, but Mar-Vell will go and the sales boost will depart with it. Marvel will never bring him back as the true Captain Marvel for fear of the mob loosing their isht, though it would ultimately be better for the company and the book.

  16. Yeah, it was a pretty great run, and the early portion leading all the way up the original Infinity Gauntlet storyline is a real classic. I kinda lost track of it after the Herald Ordeal though. Ron Lim is a seriously underrated artist, though. That dude was one of the most consistent and hardworking artists of the late 80's/early 90's and kind of got overlooked/overshadowed thanks to the Image "revolution." He was always fantastic on the cosmic stuff, and it takes some serious chops to take over from a comic book legend like George Perez and pull it off, but Lim did it on the original Infinity Gauntlet.

  18. I'm a classic Avengers guy all the way - pre-Bendis. There's still a lot of classic team members and honorary members to go. Hopefully this wave and the remainder of the retro cards (Lady Loki and others) will help check off some of the following: Swordsman finishes off 1960's Avengers that have never-been-made-before in ML. And of course Rick Jones and Jarvis. Of course 1st appearance Wasp, Yellowjacket update, Clint Barton Goliath and 1st appearance Wonder Man are definite factors in the 1960's as well, but Swordsman is technically the last. Fishnet Black Widow was an ally and I'd gladly display her, but she technically wasn't an Avenger... yet. Mantis, Moondragon and Two-Gun Kid wrap up the 1970's for never-been-made members. Safari Jacket Wonder, Perez Beast, classic Falcon and classic Hercules are definite factors as well. The original GOTG and Whizzer are honorary members, so they technically fit. Carol in her 1st appearance costume was an ally, but not technically a member until she wore the black costume, but I need the first costume to add to my Korvac Saga cast. Starfox, Firebird, Dr. Druid, Demolition Man, Gilgamesh and Jim Hammond Human Torch are the never-been-made of the 1980's. A definitive She-Hulk, 1st appearance Monica Rambeau, classic Mockingbird and lab coat/red jumpsuit Hank Pym are factors as well. Marrina and Rita Demara Yellowjacket are honorary members, so they fit. Sersi, Stingray, Living Lightning and Crystal fill out the 1990's never-been-made-before Avengers. Vance Astro as Justice and all of the bomber jacket versions are factors. Magdeline, Javert Swordsman and Deathcry are honorary members. Masque is honorary as well, but she's really just an alternate head when they update Madame Masque. Jack of Hearts, Triathlon/3-D Man, Silverclaw and Lionheart wrap up the classic Avengers. Gypsy Scarlet Witch would be an amazing figure. Many, many Iron Man armors and Wasp costumes would complete several teams and eras as well.

  19. I see the excitement building for this wave, but please, let's stick to Avengers here, its been a long time since we Avengers fans have gotten an all-comic Avengers wave! And I love all these hero suggestions and hoped-fors, but don't forget we seriously need some classic Avengers villains folks. How long have I been seeing people asking for Graviton, ionic Count Nefaria, Super Adaptoid, Dr. Spectrum (Squadron Sinister), Grandmaster, Collector, Nebula, Scarlet Centurion, Morgan Le Fay, Executioner and many more? Guys, we NEED Avengers villains to put on our shelves to face off out favorite Avengers lineups, we DESERVE Avengers villains! My hope is the wave has seven figures, two of which I hope are villains listed above, the rest heroes - the more 'never been made into plastic' the better - and a worthwhile BAF. I personally think the classic green Super Adaptoid at giant man size (12 inches would be enough to make me happy) and looking like parts of Iron Man, Hawkeye, and Captain America.

  20. Hasbro today is holding a new live-stream with the Hasbro Marvel Legends brand team (Ryan, Dan, & Dwight) which you can check out below. We expect one of the main reveals for today to be a new assortment of 6 Spider-Man Classic figures. Check back over the course of the next hour for full coverage of the event and any new reveals they may have on tap. Hasbro thanks fans for the Haslab Galactus. It is the most successful Haslab to date. Hasbro teases more Heralds for the line coming next year. Excalibur 3 pack goes up for pre-order tomorrow on Pulse at 2pm ET for everyone. The Skrull and Shield Agent Army Builders will also go up on Pulse tomorrow for everyone at 2pm ET. New Retro Spider-Man assortment of 6 figures which will go up for pre-order everywhere tomorrow (9/14) at 1pm ET. Black Costume Spider-Man, Hobgoblin from animated series, Ben Reilly Spider-Man, Hammerhead, Armored Spider-Man Mark 1 and Shocker. Toy Biz Retro Falcon and Loki. Look for these to go up for pre-order likely on the 21st. Dwight also teases a barrel. Ryan also held up a card. Being re-released from a boxset is female Trixster Loki. Teasers for 2022 - There will be a new figure released without legs, 6" oversized Retro Spider-Man figure coming and at least 2 characters released that have never been done by Toy Biz or Hasbro for 6" Marvel Legends. The characters have cards in the Marvel Universe trading card series 2 set. Panel ends.

  21. I can't go with this. Its an old, stale argument that just doesn't hold up. It reflects more on the fears of others, than actual policy. Until Hasbro specifically says they wont do it, then its on the table. Look no further than the Surtur thats available at stores like Target and others: for years on forums like this, collectors were convinced "devil" or "satan" like figures wouldn't be made, cause they "couldn't" go to retail stores. But Hasbro never ever said anything like this. Well nothing says "devil" like a big fiery horned demon; if that's ok ( and why wouldnt it be) then the name "mephisto" wont matter. Surtur should have put to bed, once and for all, this notion. Just because they haven't produced a particular figure yet doesn't mean its somehow forbidden.

  23. Just a head's up, HasbroPulse has the Hydra Trooper back in stock. No, it's not the brand new Skrulls or S.H.l.E.L.D. agents, but it does serve as a reminder that they do restock these exclusive troop builders a couple times a year.

  24. I wouldn’t bother. Dude is the king of stupid, lazy stereotypes, and he’s not likely to stop. He literally uses the term “China virus”. In other news, my five-year old has a small but growing Marvel Legends collection, which she loves, in addition to playing video games.

  25. With names like Vulcan and Darwin popping up, I would like to see another wave of current X-Men from the comics (House of X, Power of X, etc). I could see them doing the Betsy Braddock Captain Britain, Captain Avalon, Exodus, Kid Omega, a proper Kate Pryde, Doug Ramsey/Douglock, young Cable and Gorgon. Personally, I love the Hellions series so Scalphunter, Nanny and Orphanmaker would be great. Those might be highly unlikely though.

  28. Yeah, they came out with a flying jump kick with the Siryn reveal but its just gotten more and more disappointing at each reveal since. They are doing absolutely no favor to the X-Men brand by rolling out the same old characters over and over. Sabretooth, seriously, another one? Yeah it'll probably be his classic fur collar look on the Odinson buck that Hasbro suddenly realized they had, but dayam! Last I checked there are a ton of X-Men like Pixie and Husk and Chamber and frikkin' Longshot that haven't been done yet. And how many current and former members of The Brotherhood are still waiting in the wings. Sure, this kinda layout is great for those that missed the 1st, 2nd and even 3rd releases of some of these characters, but what about all us who've been supporting the line from the start? We want some new faces, guys. We put our time in, we got ours when they came out the first time, we been here from the start. It's time to show out for us. I just freakin' know Bonebreaker is gonna be the BAF and I'm gonna have to buy this entire set of repeats just to get him. Here's to the last 2 reveals being another Cyclops and another Storm. This isht is effin' frustrating!

  30. I’ve been inspired by all the looks and fashion from the Hellfire Gala event and needed to bring some characters to life in toy form. I started with my fav looks: Colossus, Rachel Summers and of course Emma Frost. “The whole world is watching us now. We must be nothing less than fabulous.”

  31. Sweet!! I've wanted a Siryn for a long time! I see lots of people wanting re-do's of characters, while there are some that truly need re-do's, I'd personally much rather see so many of the X-Men related characters that have never been done before in 6" form like Rockslide, Pixie, M, Anole, Armor, Husk, Magma, Hellion, Cypher, Chamber, Quentin Quire, Sage, Surge, Dust, Madelyne Pryor, Mercury, Dr. Nemesis, Glob Herman, Marrow, Oya, Frenzy, Elixir, Madison Jeffries, Hepzibah, Corsair, Bling!, Mariko Yashida, Genesis, Blindfold, Prodigy, Leech, Dr. Cecilia Reyes, Abigail Brand, Scalphunter, Mimic, Exodus, Skin, Destiny, Synch, Dr. Kavita Rao, Pete Wisdom, Trish Tilby, Gentle, No-Girl, Skids, Match, Trance, Deathbird, Broo, Layla Miller, Feral, Artie Maddicks, Loa, Lila Cheney, Ch'od, Vanisher, Raza, Rusty Collins, Beak, Ernst, etc., etc..... those are just some of the ones that have several hundred comic appearances and no figure yet... I'd also love to see some kind of build-a-scene for Krakoa, even if they had to spread it across multiple waves....

  32. I'm imagining you would want the original Box to match the classic Alpha Flight we got. I would personally be fine with that or the Madison Jefferies Box. Here's hoping. 👍

  37. Hey, I'm really liking the height and mass on colossus. I hope they use this baf buc for a classic looking colossus down the line. He would look so much better next to juggernaut and apocalypse compared to the current one we got in the two pack with juggy.

  38. Sadly the house of ideas continues to show that it is running out of ideas. Devil's Reign sounds a lot like Dark Reign, mixed with Civil War. Avengers Forever is like well Avengers Forever but without address in the continuity problems She Hulk sounds a lot like Slott's She Hulk Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur doesn't seem to be doing much different from the previous runs X of Wolverine sounds like most of the wolverine stories recently. Yeah very little to get me interested

  40. After Galactus, there are few characters I’d drop $400 on. I’d agree if they went smaller scale I’d be more likely to invest. As mentioned above a Hulkbuster could be cool. For my collection I’d lean towards a Giant-Man project. His scale would be near the same as the old ToyBiz version with modern articulation. For teirs: 1.Unmasked headsculpt. Take a page from MODOK and have interchangeable face plates hidden by the hair. Maybe angry, stoic.. smiling.. 2. 6” Giant-Man/ Hank in lab coat ala the upcoming Reed Richards. Removable arms so he can be regular Giant -Man 3. 6” Egg Head. Maybe throw on some accessories like the AIM scientist clip board.. a skrull looking hairdryer gun.. 4. Ultron MK1. Sure he looked like an evil garbage can but he’d be perfect for this type of project.

  41. Yay, you all got your Sentinels & the big G. How bout now Hasbro starts making stuff in the more affordable $150-$200 price range. Give us classic comic versions of Hank Pym Giant man/Goliath, Erik Josten Goliath, Classic Orka in the 16'-18' scale. They can come with extra alternate hands & 4 head sculpts. Stoic head, angry gritted teeth head, yelling head & unmasked head sculpt. No BS tiers. Make a 10' tall scale accurate Sasquatch with 3 alternate head sculpts & 3-4 sets of hands with a 6' scale Walter Langkowski figure & I'll easily throw $150+ at that! And a 10' scale classic Champion! That way, those of us who are not as rich as the Galactus/Sentinel backers can get in on these Haslab exclusives.

  42. Something else that I think is worth pointing out. We don't know the final numbers yet, but it looks like Galactus will end up selling pretty close to the same final total as the Sentinel (21,890 according to the website). I have no idea how many collectors bought multiples of the Sentinel, but anecdotally sounds like quite a few people did buy two or three. That makes sense because the Sentinel is naturally a troop builder that you'd want more than one of. With Galactus, that's not the case. There's no practical reason to collect more than one--unless you really want to display him with Doom's head too, which wasn't a known option until an hour ago, and I don't see that motivating a whole lot of people to buy an extra. That means, if they end up selling around the same number of units, and more people bought multiples of the Sentinel, that actually more people bought Galactus. Despite the cost, more different people chose to buy Galactus, which means either he's more popular than the Sentinel, or this year's HasLab project was more widely known and marketed better to a broader base of collectors. So the notion that anybody at Hasbro could be fired for this is absurd. Ryan and Dan are getting bonuses!

  46. Legender, the Morg character was part of the Silver Surfer comic that started in 1987, I believe, and ran for 150 issues. Some great writers and artists were a part of this run, including Steve Englehart, Jim Starlin, Ron Lim and Al Migrom. In addition to Morg becoming Galactus new herald, it brought in more new Elders of the Universe, the resurrection of Thanos (pre Infinity Gauntlet), and the death of Frankie Raye Nova... at Morgs hand no less. If you still read, I would try to pick up some trades of this run, it's still one of my favorite Marvel runs.

  47. In less than 24 hours from it being announced, the second stretch goal for the Haslab Marvel Legends figure has been unlocked. This was for the new Marvel Legends Silver Surfer figure which needed 17k backers. Now those who back this campaign will get Surfer along with the Marvel Legends Frankie Raye Nova figure with their 32" tall Galactus. As we await Hasbro to reveal what stretch goal #3 will be which should be later this morning the campaign currently has 17,046 backers with a little over 3 days left. The question on everyone's mind now is what will goal #3 be and how many backers will be needed to unlock it?

  48. The going theory is Hasbro will take their recent Walmart Cap, Hulk and Classic Iron Man figures make some slight modifications to them and re-release them with those stands and something that will fit in the back of the stand along with a new Toad figure re-creating the the first wave of Toy Biz figures. I want to stress the word theory as I've not seen anything credible at this time to back that up however it certainly sounds like something Hasbro would do. Find a way to essentially re-issue a bunch of figures and include 1 high demand new figure with them.
