  1. Other people’s opinions are just as relevant and valid as yours. Value has always been and continues to be relative to the consumer. Some might pay $1000 usd for this , some might not pay $100 usd. Each person can decide for themselves if it is worth the price the producer is asking. That is how capitalism works. If you are so disgusted by others opinions I suggest you DO NOT READ THEM.

  2. I just don't understand why you keep calling it "HasScam"- I know being a bit grumpy is kind of your schtick (which is fine- one of my best friends is a goodhearted grump), but HasLab is much more transparent than a lot of the things that big toy companies do. You seem to have a limit, where you don't buy items above a certain price point. I totally respect that, and it is a wise person who can set and stick to limits for themselves. These HasLab projects are not for you- they are for people who want a giant Galactus, and/or are fine spending $400.00 on an item for their collection. There are some companies that make really cool statues that are many hundreds, even thousands, of dollars- those aren't for me, but this is. It's not a scam, you're just not the kind of consumer that this is aimed at. We have seen about the limits of what Hasbro will do for Deluxe figures and BAFs, I think. I have no interest in a 12" Galactus, and it would be a wasted spot for a more in-scale large character to be done as a deluxe release or BAF. 9 or 10 inches seems to be about the limit for BAFs these recent years, and 12" or so the limit for deluxe releases. I think it's great to have 6" figures as stretch goals for these projects. I also think those figures should all be very niche/obscure. I don't think Firelord, updated Terrax, Frankie-Nova, or even Morg should be stretch goals, unless they are, say, paint variants of an upcoming general-release version. I think that Norrin Radd and Shalla Bal would be great choices, because they are figures that Hasbro would most likely not make otherwise. I think having this big Galactus get made actually improves our chances of getting more general-release figures of Galactus-related characters. If Hasbro sees that they can sell 21,000 units of a $400.00 Galactus, they might feel more comfortable with the demand for, say, Airwalker in a F4 Legends wave.

  3. Keep it clean, that's hilarious. You've got a small group of bigots that aggressively push a racist agenda on every post they can twist to fit but calling that what it is that's the problem. Just their opinions. Good stuff man.

  4. Forget heralds included as additional tiers. I want legit radioactive Kirby Crackle energy to shoot out of the toy, like you need to wear a lead-lined vest over your genitals in order to play with it.

  6. I like it when people use the terms "SJW," "Social Justice Warrior," "SJW Agenda," etc., in non-ironic ways, because it lets me know that I can disregard anything that they ever post. Marvel has always been a "Social Justice" company. The X-Men were inspired by The Civil Rights Movement, Black Panther has been around for more than 50 years, and they have always tackled social issues. Heck, timely even had an anti-Holocaust Captain America cover back in the 1940s- the only WW2 cover I know of that actually acknowledged The Holocaust's existence. Marvel has always been MUCH more focused on diversity, too (Vs. DC, who had a racist editor in chief for years, which is why their comics were very low on non-Caucasian heroes until the early 1980s.).

  7. Captain America allies & enemies pack 1. Sin (Sinthea Schmidt) - all new 2. Sharon Carter - Black Widow movie body with AOA Jean Grey's head and Legacy Rogue's hair. I'm cheating a little with Sharon in that she's not a 100% redeco of an existing figure but could be made using 100% existing parts. 3. Scourge of the Underworld (classic) - tall suit body (possibly a new upper torso) with masked Archangel head, new hat (or a new head in a similar shape to the masked Archangel head with attached hat), new coat, and new gun. 4. Isaiah Bradley - 80th Anniversary Cap body with new head, new biceps, new forearms, new boot tops, and classic shield from 80th Anniversary "Riders"Ultimate Cap (and MCU Captain America: The First Avenger two pack). 5. Battlestar (classic) - Wolf Cap body with new head, new hips/waist/crotch piece, new boot cuffs, new glove cuffs, new upper torso w/ collar, and new shield.

  8. The vintage wave Hawkeye should've come with a bow that included an arrow loaded and the string pulled back so Hawkeye could actually look like he's ready to shoot.

  11. Totally a fan of the Fan vote, I would however prefer it if Hasbro let the fans actually vote, not just offer up 3 characters and say pick 1 of these. Ask the fans who they want, and pick the top 3, then ask them to narrow it down to the number 1 spot.

  13. Exactly. You see something you don't like, you complain. If enough people join in, the company will make it better. The squeaky wheel gets the oil and all that. It amazes me that some people still don't get that.

  14. I still can’t believe they’re even offering Galactus in this size so I’m stoked to (hopefully) be getting him. Naturally curious to see the tier unlocks but not sweating over them. Although I would REALLY like if they made a tier for another head and chest plate to create a classic Galactus because if he is never gonna happen again then the more versions of him in one, the better👍

  15. I think people were just spoilt by the sentinel project. Hasbro never thought it was be that successful. Hell the project before hand they practically begged for people to back them. They didn't even think they would need another tier. Yet they had to scrabble to make another tier just to make up for the amount they shot by. Basically it's like @RyanDaly said. This is not about the tiers. It about galactus. The tier are just bonuses. If we don't get them fine but at least we get the figure we should be buying, not the extras.

  17. I also said what you are saying here but got an economics lesson from posters haha.. guess I brought up these concerns before the excitement died down and people didn’t want to hear it. i still agree, at face value, the Sentinel APPEARS to be a much better deal at this point. Cmon Hasbro, gives us some incentive!

  18. Exactly, I'm happy with my Toy BIz Galactus, he's not a giant and I'm glad he isn't. Why they couldn't do the likes of Galactus or the Sentinel the same size/price as say Surtur, people would be more likely to buy them.

  19. I wouldn't say the problem is Galactus not being as iconic as Sentinel; he's just not an army builder. Plus the first stimulus rolled out during the Sentinel campaign so I imagine that helped boost those numbers even more. But even so, there has got to be a lot of collectors, such as myself, that are using these 40+ days to come up with the funds before backing this bad boy.

  21. I dont need another Rogue , I dont need another spiderman varients , I dont need another Gambit . What I do need is a classic versions of Wendigo , Mr Hyde , Sentry (with a much improved and detailed body mold) , a never before made Molecule Man (classic and current ) the comic version of the Black Order to fit with my Thanos figure , never before made Mephisto (with a great body mold, detailed paint work ) a new and improved more bulky body mold and better detail art work of Odin , Dracula Lord of the Vampires (red suit white hair version) , an overdue Daken with better body mold , paint and detail work . Oh and a new Banshee is long past overdue I can go on and on of how far behind Marvel legends leadership is I"m not wasting anymore money on remakes like this until they start redoing past due characters like those I mentioned

  22. Unfortunately I heard it will be stuck in production limbo since the Legends team won't budge against the Children Safety Consultant's suggestion to remove the feature that makes the hands say "I'm the Juggernaut, b!tch" when pressed together.

  24. Isn't Namor in less? I mean at least Herc is wearing boots and that harness thingy. Looks solid as a figure and I'm looking forward to adding it to my Avengers shelf. Found the art this costume is based on. Looks good!!

  25. This figure might be just a little too naked for me. Feel like we wouldn't be likely to get a female figure with similar level of coverage (but still decent). For example, Goblin Queen.

  27. Ehhh screw that, if theyre putting a Surfer as a tier unlock, it better be a badass 6” surfer. Not a tiny figurine just to make nonbackers happy while backers get less bang for their buck. At least it’s a character that’s been released 2 times in the last couple years vs a new character we haven’t gotten.

  31. I think its the Punisher van! Because this b.i.g. guy was punished! And the comic cover is a way to confuse & punish the fans! And the van will have working electronics and sounds and a weapons rack that it used to punish evil doers!

  32. Yup.. this ^ this was going to be my exact port if @Gigantor hadn’t beat me to it. Every masked or helmeted character has an unmasked head and every unmasked character has an alternate expression. how is an alternate head not standard for EVERY figure by now?!?

  33. Love the screen accurate red and blue detailing, but I've just about had it with Hasbro's Matty-Collector schtick. A nostalgic paint job won't drive me to buy a ridiculously over-priced exclusive. If they keep pulling this crap, though, it may just drive me AWAY from buying their regular stuff.

  36. Very recent example, but I think the Modular Iron Man figure would have been perfect if it came with a set of two snap-on accessories (I'm using the "a set counts as an accessory" card). I'll always value that Hasbro included a nanotech cannon for the Model-Prime Iron Man figure to reflect its nanoweapon shtick. It was a "going the extra mile" kind of thing. So I really wish they had done something like that for the Modular Iron Man. Here's hoping those accessories come in the inevitable retro re-release.

  38. That's my problem, they probably won't remake her for awhile, I thought they might have at one point during the last year, because she had a solo comic run for a bit (which was really fun), but that time passed for her, I just wish they packed her first go the right way because I love that figure otherwise, it's a perfect rendition of her, but she's buttaface 😉

  39. Of course the reveal wasn't Toad. We don't need another Toad, we've only had 1 figure of him, released in the very first wave of ToyBiz Marvel Legends way back in 2002, and the NAILED IT right out of the gate....

  40. Could also be Impossible Man or Molecule Man. Baron Blood? Might even be the Wizard. OR just another fake-out that turns out its not really a purple boot but a "trick of the light" and winds up some totally different character. Frankly this type of "clue"/ "hint" just annoys me. Stop playing these silly games and finish out the Inhumans. Give me my Starjammers, my Guardians of the Galaxy. Or maybe go back to the drawing board and re-do Silver Centurion, since Select has shown it could have been done correctly instead of the amateur hour show we got.

  41. I really hope Hasbro does an update for her. Give her proper hair and an updated head with the better face scan and proper hair for the black suit.

  42. Totally agree, allow fans to actual suggest characters and then narrow those choices down to say a top 10 from fans to then choose from.

  43. The buck used for MCU Death Dealer is extremely restrictive & doesn't allow for a great deal of poseability for a supreme martial artist, so I just painted the head & hands in HAND Ninja colors & now I have a more posable Death Dealer that better fits in my comic based collection.
