  1. I love how the "muh comics/shows/movies" people make it easy to see how seriously they want to be taken by how much they misspell "LGBTQ." Saves the trouble reading when you can instantly see where they stand by just that.

  2. I was obsessed with this version of Namorita/Kymaera as a kid and thought her redesign was so cool in all its over-the-top-90s glory. Really aimed to pay attention to every detail. We need more New Warriors in Legends!

  4. Retro Toybiz celebration is a cool idea. I'd love it if they would go back, WAY back to the Golden Age and give us the Timely/Marvel characters that started it all. At the very least we should have Sub-Mariner, Human Torch, Captain America with his first shield. Bucky, Toro, Original Vision, Miss America, Whizzer, Red Raven, Destroyer, Blazing Skull, Namora.

  5. Ah Armor Wars. The year this all went down was quite the year of change at Marvel. Captain America was just the Captain, Tony had this Silver Centurion Armor, Hulk was grey, and Spidey was sporting the classic black. Thor was all armored up. If you took a break from comics and came back in this era you’d hardly recognized anyone. This was the first time I witnessed the rift between Cap and Tony as the Captain arrived at the Vault to try to talk some sense into Tony. Only for Tony to turn on Cap! Riveting !! Man this was good stuff... this would make a pretty great retro wave

  6. We have a guitar with Spider-Punk... but that's why I say we need a Scott Pilgrim line with Build a Drumkit waves, so that we can get Sex BobOmb, Clash at Demonhead, and Crash and the Boys sets and instruments.

  7. I want the comic based Warriors Three. I'd love to get them in their own 3 pack but if the marketers don't think that would sell, then I'd put them in a Thor wave, with: Classic Thor, Bearded head alt, whirling Mjolnir accessory Hogun the Grim, blue/black Mace Lady Sif in the fan favorite outfit Volstagg Classic Beta Ray Bill & Stormbreaker Fandral Classic Moondragon OR Firelord BAF: Ulik OR comic Surtur

  8. Mods have serious reading comp skills. I was not "arguing" about the "hgt" of the figures. I was pushing the concept of a "Giants of the Marvel universe" deluxe line that every 4 months can release 3 larger than normal Marvel comic characters that can not fit in a regular 6" character wave due to being 12'-14-16- tall or taller. Other guy was saying it wouldn't sell. My 3 main examples were: Hank Pym Giantman/Goliath 16' tall Erik Josten Goliath 16' tall Sentinel- classic DOFP version 16' tall. Btw, I don't "argue", I enjoy debating people.

  9. I think his point was that no one is really "arguing" over the height of the figure. There is no need to issue pre-emptive warnings at this stage of the discussion. If we can't talk about the height, can we also not talk about accessories, color variations, comic versus MCU styles, etc.? These are all things that have been up for debate/discussion in the forums previously and all pertinent to the figures. We're talking about toys in a toy thread--what is ok to discuss?

  10. Seriously, totally overstepping. No one has gotten ugly to anyone else about this matter. It's friendly back and forth, nobody's getting hurt here. Just cuz you've made it very clear in the past that you're no fan of the "this guy shoulda been this size" arguments doesn't mean other people don't want to partake. The fact that people keep it alive means it's important issue to the reasoning of why or why not people will or won't be getting it. Get over yourself, man. This forum's not all about you.

  11. 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

  12. 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

  16. I don't think they should stick to the first wave- I think they shoudl do "tribute" figures to various "Legends" figures released throughout ToyBiz' run. The clamshell packaging is way too much plastic for Hasbro to use these days, but I'm sure they could find a cool way to make the packaging resemble the ToyBiz packaging with much less plastic. I agree that a focus on re-doing figures that only Toy Biz has made would be cool, and/or some of the more unique Toy Biz ones, as well as obligatory mian characters. Some good choices, in the outfits their Toy Biz figures were wearing, would be:

  18. I really wish they'd taken into account the suit's shtick and included some snap-on weapons. Nothing necessarily too fancy, just something that showed that extra-mile level of detail like the Invincible Iron Man coming with a nanotech cannon.

  24. Yeah, what? I’m pretty sure I’m one of the most vocal “PC” ambassadors here, and I rarely if ever have made claims like those quoted. If anything, I maintain over and over again that Marvel and Hasbro aren’t adhering to some sort of conspiracy to pander to particular demographics, and that it’s specifically the “not pandering solely to straight white men anymore” that often ruffles so many feathers and leads to so much speculation about there being rules they’re socially obligated to follow. It may be 1.5% where you live, but it’s closer to 25% where I live, and the Gallup poll in 2017

  25. That’s how she was drawn during this event. They went out of their way to use what appear to me to be brand new legs specifically to capture her body type as originally drawn. That Jean toy is the worst X-Men figure made in the modern era, and it’s not even close (she de-throned Jim Lee Rogue, the previous clear worst), but I’m not sure what that has to do with what you want to talk about. It’s a bad toy because its skirt stops it from properly standing or having any range of motion in its legs, it’s wearing flats cast all in yellow to give the half-assed illusion of being the bottom p

  32. I'll be saving money if it's the Eternals wave revealed. Im limited to comic-only figures from now on. And NOT more AOA stuff for me as I skipped that wave. Hopefully it will be more FF RETRO AND Spidey. Of course I would gladly welcome more Classic/Retro X-men. Im still looking for more "Outback" costumes and characters like Havok, Psylocke, Rogue and LONGSHOT. A sitting pack in of Gateway would be cool. Maybe more Reavers? Or Brotherhood characters...yeah...more X-Men please. I tell ya...this has become an expensive hobby for some of us but I love it!

  33. Today Hasbro reveals their biggest and possibly best Marvel Legends Infinity Saga Iron Man Movie Iron Monger And Obadiah Stane 2-Pack. This is available for pre-order from our sponsor BigBadToyStore.com. Obadiah Stane suits up as the powerful Iron Monger to threaten Iron Man. After a long stint as second-in-command of Stark Industries, Stane is eager to exact revenge on Tony Stark. With over 80 years of entertainment history, Marvel has become a cornerstone of fan collections around the world. With the Marvel Legends Series, fan favorite Marvel characters are designed with premium de

  37. Again, I don't see where I'm not respecting other opinions. I was not involved in any of these other height discussions, so I have no common point of reference. And this sort of reads like "Ok, we've discussed height, now no one else mention it anymore..." I've actually gained more insight into how the height of the figure has been received based on other poster replies and it's been different than I thought it would be. Not the other way around. This is kind of like having a discussion at my local comic store (a civil one) and someone jumps in and says "Whaooo guys, take it down a no

  40. Yep... VERY familiar with the awkward walk in, check aisle, walk out 30 seconds later empty-handed scenario. At least with Target and WG there's something else i'm there to buy anyhow, and Gamestop is geeky enough that i'm comfortable telling any associates who ask that i'm just checking the action figure stock. Gotta say that waiting for nova to show up while Canada's already able to preorder Quasar is pretty annoying, but it is what it is. Guess we should be thankful these characters are getting figures at all, since apparently hasbro does not want to include them in a normal wave.. and at

  42. 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

  43. 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
