  1. 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

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

  3. 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!

  4. 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

  6. 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

  7. They already do baf less waves. Its called the vintage waves they do every year. And they charge the same price so I'd rather get an extra figure.

  8. 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

  9. 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.

  10. 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

  13. 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.

  14. 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

  15. 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.

  16. Speaking of sales, I got sick of waiting for Johnny Storm to go on sale with his virtual peg-warming behind and just bit the bullet....to complete the Super Skrull!!!! Dudes, fellow fans...this is my first completed BAF ever. I know that sounds extreme, but after 14 years of cherry-picking, it's the truth. I feel like I need a drink or something, and I don't drink, lol.

  18. 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 so

  19. 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.

  22. 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

  23. done with Spider Man??, this must be a joke, why would Marvel or Hasbro ever be done with Spider-Man? if that was the case they might as well just shut the doors to the company, even if Legends went a way, I promise you Spider-Man Legends would be the last survivor

  24. 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

  26. 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 fil

  28. 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.

  29. You know what REALLY means nothing? Your whining in this thread. Feel free to find a thread talking about something you like and care about, whether on this forum or another. I'm sorry that the stores in your area are apparently particularly sucky on keeping anything in stock (or is it that you're expecting to find everything you want hunting just once a week in the afternoon?). Either way, I can assure you nothing you say here is going to have any impact on how Hasbro or their retail partners do business, and nobody else here really cares that you can't get your toys.

  30. 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.

  31. Considering the sloppy work done on his Batman and Superman DC figures, no, I 'm not interested in a McFarlane type Marvel figure. Now if its based on his art style, but neither he nor anyone affiliated with his company have a hand in the production, that's a different story. Besides I think he's too wound up with his kickstarter. That work looks great by the way. Figures inspired by Cockrum, Buscema, Perez, Bryne, Lee, Adams? Id sure be interested in those.

  32. 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

  33. 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 impress

  35. 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

  36. 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.

  38. All these are excellent and have would have a legitimate chance of being done. My picks are very similar. Two/three packs are the perfect way to correct mistakes from the past while doing a character never done before (by Hasbro) and making it feel all new. Classic Captain Marvel & Classic Ms. Marvel - seriously, my personal feelings about the whole Captain Marvel situation aside, this needs to be done. We need a new Mar-Vell done the way only Hasbro can do it, and though Disney would like us to forget about the original Ms. Marvel she is a part of her actual history and she needs som

  40. I'm a terrible photographer, but here's my collection. A few of them are pretty well-obscured, but this is every X-Men-related figure in the Infinite Series, including all exclusives and Deadpool waves, with the exception of one or two fan channel 80th figures that just haven't made it in to my shop yet (Cowboy Logan, etc.), and with the addition of one older figure. I need to get some flight stands and build some props to help thin out the crowds and make it more visually interesting. I want to try to make one shelf look like the danger room, and maybe the other look like the Savage Land or s

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.
