  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. So, next year is the 50th anniversary of Luke Cage; he was the first Black comic book character to star in their own solo series, so he's pretty important. To celebrate that; how would you feel about a Heroes for Hire 2-pack of 70s Luke Cage and 70s Iron Fist?

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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. Don't think its animosity towards MCU fans, but when someone asks "who the hell is (blank) or who asked for (blank)", it behooves us to try to answer their question....and Educate them. If youre an MCU fan, that's great, but understand that everything great about the MCU came from the comics. Without Marvel Comics, there simply is no MCU. Sadly, some people seem to think if they never heard of a thing, then that thing isn't relevant. But if youre watching Endgame and theres the scene in Dr. Pym's lab where there's a big silvery helmet with antennae on his desk? That's the original Ant-Man

  7. 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!

  9. I'm sorry someone came into your house and grabbed your hand and forced you to click "play" and then held you down until the review had completed so you couldn't stop watching it. That must have been very traumatic for you.

  10. 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.

  11. I'd love to see that in print. Not saying its not true, just that I'd want to see where/when/who made such a statement because it flies in the face of reason. If they can do Ghost Rider- flaming skull and all- Blackheart, Red Goblin, etc. then a "no devil" policy makes no sense. Mephisto is basically a red-skinned dude in an all-red get up, with wild ass Phyliss Diller hair. Red Goblin surely looks way more "devilish" than that. And, I agree with @RyanDaly that if they're gonna be that foolish about (some people could say unfounded) concern with physical retailers, they could just use Hasbro P

  12. People's response to this is a good indicator of why I don't read fan theories. Not making fun of anyone who is upset. But I saw a LOT of people all over the web who were dead set on Mephisto being revealed as the mastermind behind everything (possibly played by Evan Peters) and that seemed like a stretch to me.

  17. Ready for something really unique? Here's a Transformers/Marvel Legends Crossover Bludgeon! He was created using the Silver Samurai body and heavily modded helmet, Ghost Rider head, War Machine armor/forearms, TF Hoist shoulder for the backpack, Overwatch Reaper legs, KO TF Scrapper top for the shield, and some fodder parts. Bludgeon was primered with Bulldog Adhesion Promoter, sculpted sections using Aves Fixit Sculpt, hand painted, airbrushed metallic armor effects, and sealed with Mr Hobby premium Matte. His eyes are glass reflective and he has a 5mm port in his left arm. For more pics

  19. Glad to know you're safe and haven't resented the effects of the pandemic. You could try empathy for a change, the fact that you haven't been affected by this doesn't mean nobody has. I'm lucky I can still work and do everything from home, but a lot of friends have either lost their jobs or can't work at all since this broke out, and that means they are limited to what they can and can't afford by their savings. The fact that you and I may be able to pay for something 500usd + doesn't mean that everyone will be, and on the empathic side of things, those 500usd+ could be used for something

  20. Your personal thoughts on the virus itself are immaterial here. The impact it is having on society and the economy is real and showing pics whether it be online or at a convention would be pointless if people aren't in a position to pay for it right now.

  21. C'mon man, I think you're taking the complaints way too seriously. I mean the entire basis of this site and forums is for the opinions of the figures that are being done and how they're being done and ideas on what coulda been done and what should be done in the future. There's a lot of theory as to whether Hasbro pays attention to this site and others, but Dwight and Tony have both been known to say they watch the boards, and no one can dispute that a lot of what comes up on these boards ends up showing up in the lines. It's a source for venting and finding out what other fans are thinking. I

  24. which one do you mean, the Toybiz version or the Hasbro versions? While I do think the swapping is a problem, I think Hasbro should keep the one they have been using as it is more environmentally friendly. If they went with the retro version, the plastic and cardboard will be stuck together and not good for recycling. Plus the normal box is design to be alot smaller and easier to pack and send out to stores. and dear god no Clamshells. They were a nightmare to open.

  25. Ah, embarrassment of riches! So I had finally made it to Walmart, picked up a few things for my sister, and made my way back toward the toy department hoping, but not really expecting, that one of those three Caps Walmart.com claimed to be there, was still waiting for me. I passed the Barbies, the Legos, the Hot Wheels, made a left turn . . . and stepped straight into Christmas. Multiple 80th Caps, several MCU 2 packs, including Luiz and Ghost, at least 2 full sets of the Wendigo wave, and the Grayson/Batman series of DC Multiverse. I turned around, and they even had the WWE Ruby Ri

  26. Kids, let's keep this on subject. Whatever your views are on racial casting, please, keep them to yourselves. There's no need to always have to create controversy on socio-political matters, we can talk about how awesome it is Ali is playing the Daywalker, or how it sucks that the Netflix shows have been all but wiped from canon, or that "he's too old" to start heading a franchise right now anyway and Snipes should come back... or how awesome it'll be to have Blade inspired figures with the movie coming out. Just, stop trying to make things controversial out of what reads like childish spite.

  27. 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

  30. This "Nimrod has limited POA" comments boggle my mind. It's a robot, not Spiderman. He's never been shown to do the splits or cartwheels. I counted 19 poa, that's "limited"? The design of the character is what gives it "limited" movement. All known Mark I-MK VI Sentinels have never run , they walk at a decent speed. I've never seen an "athletic " Sentinel, At least not the classic versions including Nimrod. Now if more modern Sentinels can run & are agile, that's news to me. I was able to pose him in all the positions needed for my action pics vs the X-men. The figure came out perfect

  32. What exactly is the complaint here? That Hasbro couldn't force Disney to release films they weren't safely or legally able to complete because of a pandemic? That Hasbro is making too much money off not releasing a bunch of stuff it had planned? That Disney had COVID-19 cooked up in the laboratories they keep in their vault as the perfect ruse to sabotage their wildly profitable MCU? That Mulan engineered the virus in conjunction with Baron Zemo as a means of asserting Chinese authority over the people of Hong Kong?

  34. This is a load of horsesh1t. First of all, to not stock this 2 pack enough....then to realize the improvements they claimed they were gonna make for Storm, they didn't do. They expressly said in the video months ago that they were not going to release her as she was in the promo pic. She's too flat, and her poncho cape cuffs are gold, not black. What I'm really steamed about is this effing exclusive crap that guarantees a lot of us cant get it. Sold out in seconds.

  39. Don't know if I go along with everything youre saying here, but I do see the overuse of gamma power, and for that matter, all the radioactive-bitten-by-spider characters out there. It does dilute the original premise. Most of these people got their powers thru freak, nearly one- of -a -kind accidents that should, by all rights, have killed them. There were enough unknown factors involved, that duplication was nearly impossible. And if their storylines went on for decades like that, then suddenly its like you can get your powers from some assembly production line, the uniqueness is gone. If i

  40. I'm gonna avoid both the "Agenda" angle, and my own personal beliefs on LGBQ and related subjects because neither is germane in this instance. MCU films are first and foremost family films. As such, they aren't a fit platform for such heady, to say nothing of important, subjects such as sexual identity or orientation. No movie or TV show is. These subjects require real, intelligent, sincere discussion in the REAL WORLD. Tossing in an LGBQ character for tokenism's sake, or worse, to indoctrinate impressionable minds to your "cause" is cheap, sleazy, unfair to all involved, and undermi

  41. 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).

  42. I have it on good authority (Uatu came to me in a dream) that by 2020 we will see the FF "negative" outfits, with Blastarr, Mole Man and an Annihilus BAF in the wave. That same year we will get an FF 3pack: Sub-Mariner in his 70s outfit, translucent Invisible Woman and an all red Torch (no stupid yellow head or flame pompadour), probably on the Sunfire buck, with additional flame effects.

  44. Ok... story time. This is is the utterly ridiculous, unbelievably frustrating, but overall happy ending true story of what it took to get my 80th Anniversary Captain America. So I’ve been watching on Brickseek and the Walmart website for any movement of Cap to “in stock” and available for ship or in store pickup status. On Tuesday I see that my closest Walmart is listing the figure as “in stock” and available for in store purchase with 5 quantity in stock. I rush to Walmart on my way home from work and arrive to the same worthless toy aisle full of Wasps, Gwenpools,

  45. Just as glad I am sure as when people come on a message board with seemingly the main intent to try stir sh@t up by rehashing the same tired rhetoric even when it has absolutely nothing to do with the topic at hand. It's almost like they want to keep trying to push the limits until they get themselves banned.
