    I love building my Avengers display out. We need more characters. I'm really hoping for a Swordsman, Falcon and updated US Agent.

    Just joined and wanted to say hello to everyone. Been collecting for just a few years now. Look forward to contributing more! I also like to cook and love to have my collecting inspire dishes. If you care to see some of my work follow me @unloadingmeat on instagram/Facebook/Twitter. I'm working to get proper equipment to also run a YouTube channel to share recipe videos for my creations. Take care!

    It is pretty offensive stereotype that makes Native Americans look like savages after America has labeled them as such since their land was stolen and history whitewashed

    I ordered some more Galactic trading post space walls that were on sale so decided to make a space themed battle in a Skrull battle cruiser that the Avengers have boarded.

    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 head to his page here: Pretender Bludgeon, Marvel Legends/Transformers crossover

    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 a bit more helpful to yourself and society. I'm not talking about donating, or even loaning, but you could probably boost those 500 into something more like investing in some business for when the dust settles.

    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.

    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. If something is an issue here then it's most likely an issue shared through most of the fandom. There are as many people happy with the products as there are unhappy with them, it's just that the complaints stick out more because the happy people are happy so there's really no reason to accentuate it. As for the issues you lined out, well they really are worthy of criticism. I think the whole Johnny Storm situation is mostly based on the body styles they chose for each figure. The first Walgreens figure was incorrectly done on the Bucky Cap mold which everyone pretty much felt was too "big" for the figure, then when they did the powered down version he was on the correct sized buck, which was available at the time they did the first one, and now they don't really match. Of course, this created the desire to have the powered on version to be redone on the correct sized buck. It only reinforces the fact that they used the wrong buck to begin with. For Cannonball, man I don't think anyone can really make an excuse for what was done there. That was just a major swing and a miss. There was almost to many things wrong with it to fully explain. I know the intent was to make it different from the first version but that was the completely wrong way to go about it. First off, there's really no excuse they couldn't have foregone the BAF piece and probably made the blast effect smaller to allow them to include legs. Secondly, the blast effect itself was just wrong. It wasn't a blast effect as much as it was a "blast off" effect. It literally portrays the split second it takes Sam to blast off from a standing position to whenever he takes flight creating the prominent blast radius on the ground. Otherwise, it's completely useless for flying poses or action poses. It's literally about as useful as a McFarlane Color Tops figure from a few years ago. Thirdly, that blast effect was entirely too large in the first place. They actually could have given him legs and just included two smaller effects, one "blasting off" and one "flying" that covered the feet and lower legs for the amount of plastic they used on that giant blast effect to replace his entire bottom half. He is rarely shown in modern times, and only by certain artists with his entire lower body engulfed in flames. They could have met a comfortable medium between the classic look they were trying to meet and the more modern portrayal.

    I mentioned this over on a "shout out" thread, but wanted to repeat here: Shout out to GrtWhiteCustoms for looking out for me on the Storm/Thunderbird set. I was really concerned about Target's past failings with exclusives, and not too encouraged by what my local stores were telling me in advance of the sale. Also wasnt going to be in any shape to go hunting, as I had to deal with some surgical procedures here in Alaska. But GrtWhite reached out with an offer to get the set for me; he did and it arrived! Nice thing to finally "wake up" to. Truly appreciate the assist. Its good to find some like-minded persons on the forum. Thanks again! While I still have some issues with Storm, they did a good job, especially the plus of two heads and capes. Odd that they didn't at least make the "power downed" version with her normal blue eyes, and they really should have just used the recently released "retro" Storm body instead. But I really dig that they used glossy black paint and molded on her boots instead of painting them on. I know a lot of people frowned at Thunderbird but he's another X-Man I always hoped for and very happy they released him with her, so we don't have to wait and pine for him (the only one left now is Banshee). I love the paint job they did on him except for the chest emblem- for some reason its dull and faded with a lot of blue bleeding thru, unlike the rest of the symbol, which is much more vibrant as it extends down his abdomen and legs. Also, his neck is covered when it actually should be exposed. The buckskin fringes on his deltoids and boots are on the stiff side; a more pliable plastic like what they use on Mr. Sinister's cape may have worked better. Other gripes, if any, would be that his head looks too big or sits too high and they didn't include fists with him! Despite all that this is a fantastic set and I'm overjoyed GrtWhite was able to assist! When I look at 1975 team Hasbro has made up till now...can't help but wish Dave Cockrum was still alive to see them. Its like they're off his drawing board.

    With the advent of Halloween this month, I still say Hasbro is blowing it by not having a Marvel Monsters box set. Work on it now, release it for Halloween 2021. Tomb of Dracula new figure, new Werewolf by Night, Living Mummy, Frankenstein monster, Lilith, Zombie, and comic book Son of Satan and Satanna. Perfect sell for Hasbro.

    So with the hoopla surrounding the Storm/Thunderbird set release , here’s my story. Shout out to GrtwhiteCustoms and or bashpics99 for alerting the community about popfindr as a resource. WAY BETTER THAN BRICKSEEK. I was able to check quantities at local targets in my area via popfindr and figured out my best attack plan. I saw that the quantity change at my closest Target and figured that I would go to the next closest one. I got up at 5:45AM and made it to that Target at 6:30AM. There were two guys in waiting then and I assumed that they were there for the 2 pack as well. But they were there for the new Funko POP releases. I was ecstatic, the store had 4 on hand and I would have 1st dibs!!!! So I chilled (not literally) and to everyone’s surprise a manager or two came to the front around 7:15 to find out what we were looking for and were going to let us know what was in stock. Me being the only one interested in ML, one mgr./employee looked at me as if I was speaking Klingon. I gave him the DCPI and he verified that they had it. When 8AM hit, we all walked in as if we were a school group on a trip. I broke off and went down the aisle where the Legends were. I found ZERO on the shelves. I was getting crazed at this point. I saw an employee two aisles over and gave him the DCPI and he told me that there were zero on the floor but he would check in the back. After he left another customer told me that he saw the set but they were gone in electronics. I almost went apoplectic! I went to electronics dept. register and saw the line of humanity that had been behind me, waiting for their turn and behind the counter was a lot of plastic: the multiple Funko POPS releases, ML 2 packs (Deadpool/Negasonic , Magneto/Professor X, Old Man Logan/Hawkeye, Storm/Thunderbird), Domino (Deadpool 2), Cable (Deadpool 2) and Wolverine (Hugh Jackman). Luckily when I went up to the counter, the manager/employee who check on the quantities for me earlier was ringing people up and told me that he would take care of me. Five minutes later, Ms. Monroe and Mr. Proudstar were mine!!! My Giant Size X-Men team is just about complete (where's that updated Banshee?) So I’m happy and a little tired and had to go to work after this chase, but as Hannibal Smith says, “ I love it when a plan comes together.”

    Errr....what! Ummm.....longtime fans? Huh, I'm sure all three of them will be ecstatic. Let's not act like this book is something it isn't fellas. Nobody asked for this and the next person that says "Man, I wish they would reboot a marginally successful comic series based on those relatively lukewarm supporting characters The Eternals that never really met expectations.", will be the first. And I'm sure Stan Lee and Jack Kirby are just looking down with baited breath on the prospect of yet another one of their creations being turned into another politically driven train wreck at light speed. Let's all just call it for what it is and recognize that this book was just supposed to try and cash in on the boost of interest the movie was going to be bringing to the characters. Unfortunately (or fortunately) the plague is gonna spoil those plans.

    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 & with the right amount of POA imo.

    Ive been scratching my head at the notion of an Eternals movie, as Marvel has so many other characters they could do. However I wish them success. One of the issues I have is that from the photo, none of these look anything like comics; well aware that film/tv productions often wont look the same, but there needs to be some resemblance. Virtually none here, and if this action figure is any indication, there's not going to be. The good thing is my wallet will get a break. 😷

    I don't care what gender someone is or what gender they think they are. If the character in a comic book is a sexy women, sculpt HER as such. if the character in a comic book is an athletic stick, sculpt HER as such. If the character in a comic book is a sexy tranny, sculpt HIM OR HER as such. if the character is Fat, Sculpt him or her as such. Wanting comic accurate and anatomically correct sculpt is not something anyone should be ashamed of. Obviously Hasbro generally gears their toys to be child friendly, you don't have to over-sexualize the toy. Just give it proper proportions and anatomy. They don't need Nicki Minaj Proportions.

    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? I'm having a hard time putting my finger on what specific grievance you're filing.

    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.

    Excellent points from both, and I can see both sides. I would say that any helmet on a suit of armor like Iron Man's would have to be bigger than the wearer's head; adding the armor itself, not to mention the necessary thickness of the boots, would have to make Stark taller when the suit's on. Most of the artists over the years however have forgotten/ignored this. I wouldn't see him coming in at Thor's height though. The original Marvel Handbook was an excellent source for this kind of info on the characters, and its a shame so many people put all that work in, just to have subsequent writers/artists ignore it. The Marvel Legends Thing was great, but it was indeed a bit too tall. The Beast was definitely too big. What I find odd about tomh was it said Hawkeye was 6'3" but never had I seen any picture with him and Cap where he was taller. And here's where we get a bit murky- if one is ok with him being depicted as shorter, others can see the Thing as taller. Its a slippery slope- as ev says, comic interpretation of a character varies dramatically from one artist to another...and this shouldn't be. Here's where some discipline and editor control need to step in. Yes these are fictional characters, but they have established parameters. They look a certain way, they act a certain way, etc. and in order to stay true to the character they need to conform to that. Yes you can make changes, but they need to make sense. Action figures should follow same. Beast shouldn't be Hulk sized when he's always been around 5'11" and 300+ pounds.

    The running gag of the Superior Foes was that they were the Sinister Six despite being five people, so maybe this is Hasbro's own take on it. "They're the Sinister Six, but they are only five characters... aaand there are only four figures."

    I dunno.Though this figure is clearly based on Lee's work, I'm actually fond of Larry Stroman's (one of the most underrated artists in Marvel history) version, when he was written by Peter David and done right. Many attempts have been made to bring him back, but part of his charm was the whole lovable loser who was in constant pain, but tried to cover it up with sarcasm and humor. No one has ever been able to do it right since 90's X-Factor. They've just always managed to make him some wise cracking A-Hole with only brief moments of redeeming likability, until they (kinda) killed him off. He isn't a traditional bruiser type. He absorbs kinetic energy which means he basically had to take some licks before he reached his maximum strength potential. At his peak he's stood toe to toe with the likes of Hulk and Thing (for a little while, anyway). Even then he had to utilize or expel the energy within a fairly short time, or risk permanent damage or further mutation. The reason that he's so top heavy is because as a child he was hit by a vehicle and his mutant power activated as a reflex to protect him. The energy of the impact overloaded his small body and deformed him. As he wasn't familiar with his powers at the time he didn't know he had to expend the energy and his body stayed permanently deformed. This causes him constant physical and mental pain and his upbeat attitude is mostly a cover to his true feelings. It's quite a well woven story David created to pluck him from even deeper obscurity and give him this whole backstory why he was who he was and why he looked like he did. His name was literally chosen by him on the fly, through his own trademark sarcasm, when during a press conference to introduce the team as the government sanctioned X-Team, a reporter verbalized that Guido was obviously the team "Strong Guy" and asked him his code name, to which he replied.....you guessed it. This was much to the chagrin of the straight laced (and cocky) Quicksilver, with whom he quickly developed a love/hate bromance with, while also developing a big brother relationship with Rahne. He really was a integral part of the team who became a fan favorite, so much that Jim Lee lobbied to have him put on his own X-Men Blue team as an analog to the Yellow team's Colossus (before he quickly cut bait and ran to Image, of course). Long story short, after David's run with X-Factor his character was put into the hands of several "less than stellar" writers and totally misused for a few more years, basically extinguishing his rising star. It would have been like handing a new popular character like Deadpool into the hands of some no-talent that didn't know how to develop a character instead of Fabian Nicieza. I know that was quite a long winded breakdown of Strong Guy that no one really asked for, but though I'm sure the majority of us on this site know about Strong Guy, I'm seeing a lot of "Who the hell is this guy?" and I thought I'd offer some insight. He was, at one time, a very good character that many of us 90's fans learned to like and he's one of my own personal faves who've I've been waiting to see in ML for a very long time, so I was getting this wave even if it had 7 goofy versions of DP or otherwise. And to Hasbro's credit, it took them waaaay too long, but when they finally did it, damn, did they do it right!

    Looks fine to me. Perfect, actually & 100% comic accurate. Maybe you're not a student of X-Men comics before 1991, but look at the cover of Giant-Size X-Men #1 (1975). Or Art Adams' magnificent (and still definitive) covers, annual & guest artist work for Classic X-Men & UXM (1985 onwards). Or Paul Smith's work on UXM in the early 1980's. Or John Romita Jr's work on UXM (first run). So, I'm seeing Jay C's reveals, and I'm thinking 'Holy sh!t! This is just amazing. Another 30 figures I need! ' It's great! But, Reading the comments...not for all: the big takeaway from at least three regular posters is: inadequate curves on female figures. Ohhh, boy. Here we go again. Blathering about 'Disney PC', and 'body shaming' and 'hurting feelings' and clearly feeling they are being discriminated against if they don't get female action figures with 38DDD upper torso sculpts and 16" waists. And, here was me thinking we didn't do politics + toys anymore here, because it's toxic. And causes people to post insults in response. And rinse and repeat. Here's the thing. I remember the Marvel Swimsuit Specials too (1992 & 1995. Even as a kid I thought these were dumb). But these weren't anomalies - in the early 1990's, Jim Lee and Joe Madureira and Rob Liefield and J. Scott Campbell and Todd MacFarlane and Whilce Portacio and 83 million other pencillers - Marvel, DC & Image - really went all out nuts doing ludicrously exaggerated and anatomically impossible versions of women's bodies (oh, yeah, and men's too. Cyclops was never a weight-lifting body guy, he's a skinny, gawky kid with tone and definition. Like how Chris Bachalo does him now). Every one giggles about Liefield lines and superfluous pockets. There was other stuff too which tends towards bad cliche. Like Scott Campbell's infamous rendition of Medusa. Like, ouch, Scoob. Still, that way of depicting our favourite heroes didn't offend me then, and doesn't now. I'd expect a 1990's Jean Grey action figure to look like 1990's comic (or, to a lesser extent, cartoon) Jean Grey. And sure enough, she does. [Boy, I still love that UXM 'Love Triangle' 3-pack. Just exceptional. Best Legends 3-pack ever. Ever]. Anyway, by 1999, that way of pencilling pretty much stopped. And it's not coming back. It's ONE VERSION of these characters. What came before, and what came after - about 60 years of comics - is far more valid and representative and will - SHOULD - be used as the basis of a sculpt. Storm looks great. And this is still an advanced protype. Please, please, please stop doing that knee-jerk reactionary stuff: personally, I don't want to insult you because of your politics (and Politics - there is a difference, but neither sits comfortably on a collecting website). I'd actually much rather listen to you, as you all have very good/interesting things to say and share without reaching for the 'I hate modern toys. I hate Disney. I hate PC. I hate....I hate...' or 'Hasbro is making me buy toys I don't want to, ' BS. (I'll admit though, that latter sentiment did make me laugh though - I started visualising Hasbro stormtroopers frog-marching fan boys down to Walgreens, and threatening to shoot them if they don't buy Squirrel Girl). You just don't need to push that button. Doesn't matter how right you are, or how right you think you are, it's better to be nice than to be right. Or, alternatively, just stop collecting/posting if it offends too much. And, I hope you'll allow me a digression too after a long ol' post. It's serious. I am 100% psyched for what's coming Legends wise, but as I live in the UK, I'm concerned about whether or not I'll be able to get it in light of the (soon to be declared) SoE here. I've already tested positive for COVID-19 and have been in self-isolation (this is day 6 for me, maybe only 2 more days, maybe 8). I'm more or less fine (ish: I have chronic asthma), but miserable & anxious. I'm worried about my parents (78 and 76, one with COPD) and my partner is even more terrified for hers (both 74, diabetic, one seriously immuno-compromised following stomach surgery last autumn). A lot of stuff is going to be shutting down here (football, sports, public events, festivals, cinemas etc. etc. already have, but schools are still open at this point). Infrastructure will be hit soon. And this situation MIGHT add cost, delay and availability issues to every thing, not least these new waves and figures (and my pre-orders! Black Widow wave & Grey Black Widow; Iron Man 2020; AOA wave and a bunch more). No-one knows. But this is real, this is serious and people you know may well die over the next 12 months. If you're lucky enough NOT to be affected by this yet, good: I hope you can all avoid it. Be sensible, take care and every possible precaution you can and stay healthy and aware of people who desperately need help. And if you hear anyone saying, yeah, they've got a cough, a fever/higher temperature and/or feel a little bit fluey, but, it ain't too bad, so they're going to keep right on working as normal, please hit them hard and forcibly frogmarch them home, making sure they follow whatever guidance has been issued by public health officials. Because this is why people are dying, and why this virus is escalating at an unprecedented and unparalleled way and with a statistically improbable mortality rate. It's kill rate is making bubonic plague or SARS seem like a walk in the park. And we have - leaked by Public Health England this morning - a year of this to go. ONE YEAR. 80% of the UK's population impacted. 7.9million hospitalised (source: the guardian.com/world/2020). Heavy, eh? So, for me, these reveals are a little bit of positivity and goodness in a very bleak time (and believe me, compared to some people, I'm not suffering at all).

    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 its that easy to make a Hulk (or Cap, Spidey, F4, DD, etc) then why wasn't it done before?? SHIELD or AIM or whoever coulda had their own unstoppable super troops. In reality, the writers just don't have any original imaginative material left so they steal from what went before. But the man has a point too: just because its not what we all knew or grew up with, doesn't automatically mean its no good. And lets be honest, just like movie producers, publishers and editors are always gonna try to catch that lightning in a bottle twice.

    And no I don't think this is really major breaking news or a big deal. LGBT+ kisses happen all the time on TV and in movies now. I have absolutely no problem with it happening in the movie but nor do I think its a major breaking event as some will likely try and portray it as.

    I tend to agree that "showing power" is better than depowered, when it comes to figures. That said, for your specific examples A) Torch is sort of weird in that his flame on figure has an off color head so that he doesn't match his classic depiction in nearly every FF comic. The depowered figure doesn't have the classic costume. So classic fans will complain about one or both of these figures (even though its easy enough to cobble together a classic depowered Johnny using an extra Reed figure). B) Cannonball not only has a lack of legs, but his effect really isn't all that impressive (its too short imo) and the figure has other flaws, mainly his arms have a pretty limited range of motion. I do appreciate hasbro taking a chance on a legless figure but feels like the execution fell short. And i will note that overall, when it comes to hasbro's least popular figures, at least most of them represented an ambitious attempt to do something different (6-arm spidey comes to mind) C) Hydroman is similarly a good idea whose execution was a bit lacking, mainly in that his powered arms have such a limited range of motion and make him so top heavy. That said, i still like the figure. And a depowered version of Morrie sounds like an awfully boring figure. People mainly tend to post when they are super enthusiastic about a figure or if they want to complain about something. Most people who are reasonably satisfied or 'meh' about a figure don't bother. So often reading online forums can lead to mistaken impressions about how well-received a figure is by the larger collecting community. Furthermore, a lot of posters on forums such as these are customizers who are naturally going to view every figure with an eye towards how they can improve it to match what they envision as the ideal depiction, so they are likely to comment on what they view as hasbro's inaccuracies or inadequacies. Finally, many collectors also take acba pics and for such endeavors it is useful to be able to switch from a powered down version to powered up (and vice versa), so that's where some of the complaints come from. If you are just doing a shelf display, i would imagine the powered up version would suffice for most people.

Their female articulation is lacking though, and they need more hands other than the splayed fingers and fists. I think overall Hasbro is really coming into it with the articulation. The bigger concern is the lack of accessories. Their should never be a figure that doesn't come with anything, but a BAF piece. Alt head, alt set of hands & 2 power effects should be the minimum. That's the real problem.

    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 undermines the exploration of what has become one of the major issues of the modern world.

    You really think I'm gonna dignify you with a debate? I have better things to do than humor somebody that sounds like what you get when you put a flat-earther and a comicsgater in a blender. Did this months-old movie really hurt you that bad that you feel the need to hijack a thread to bash it? Did Brie Larson personally travel to your house to murder your family, torture your dog and turn your toilet roll upside down? Holy heck, when you think there's only one with such unwarranted hateboner for this movie in this forum another one pops up and one ups him.

    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).

    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. I Have Spoken.
