  1. 2023 is the 60th anniversary of the X-Men and the Avengers. Maybe each IP will get a BAF wave celebrating this? I can easily see a 60th anniversary X wave featuring favorites like Banshee, Avalanche, Deathbird, Spiral and Feral. I would hope a 60th anniversary Avengers wave would be all classic, since there are still so many missing classic Avengers and villains - 1st appearance Wasp, Safari Jacket Wonder Man, Mantis, Yellowjacket update, 1st appearance Monica Rambeau, Sersi, Crystal, Swordsman, Jack of Hearts, classic Falcon, Moondragon, Stingray, Firebird, Starfox, classic Mockingbird, Count Nefaria, Graviton, M'Baku, Skurge, Moonstone, Titania, Blackout, classic Nebula, Morgan Le Fay, Collector, Grandmaster, Korvac, Super-Adaptoid and many, many others...

  2. Absolutely not. HE DOES NOT DESERVE HIS OWN FIGURE BEFORE ME AND MY FRIENDS.

  3. I'd like to see them experiment with a build-a-diorama. They couldn't be very big, but a 6-figure wave should be able to include six 4" x 4" square pieces that lock together. I'm thinking 2 bottom pieces that also have pegs (to server as figure stands) then go 2 pieces high. So they'd be 8" long x 8'' high by 4" wide when fully constructed from 1 wave. They could do various store fronts or something similar and make them lock together to create a full city block or street over multiple waves. If they thought through it enough and planned ahead they could build out these things on multiple levels (up) instead of just stretching out long wise also. I feel like this would be an interesting alternative to a BAF. Although it probably wouldn't save anything cost wise. For me as a collector, I've begun to find the diorama building the most challenging part of the hobby. The pre-built ones that aren't just cardboard have gotten to be outrageously expensive.

  5. Although this is easily one of the best Spidey figures I'm still unhappy with the diaper look, I get that there's not much they can do but what they can do in order to make it more seamless would be putting a "web belt" on the diaper itself instead of cutting it at the torso so the diaper wouldn't stand out on its own and would effectively blend into costume.

  6. It would be a good idea, but Marvel Legends wave selection and Bafs hasn't been very logical and I doubt that will change.

  7. I can see that. Sadly the team doesn't pick the waves the way we collectors would want. I'd love to get the Griffin and/or the Harpy, but the way for that would be BAF, because getting either as a Deluxe (with the prices they now know they can get away with charging), we're looking at $60-80.00. And Marvel Legends just aren't worth that. One other thing, I feel they can do a BAF wave with 4-5 figures instead of the standard 7. Head for one figure, upper/lower torso for another, 2 arms for figure #3, 2 legs for figure#4, wings and tail for the 5th figure. Something like that anyway.

  8. I understand the note, but its hard to have a discussion about BAFs and Deluxes without touching on price. Many collectors like the idea of getting that BAF because its a "bonus" in that 6-7 figure wave. Otherwise, it gets pretty expensive (and that was back in the day, see how worse it is now). Hasbro hasn't done a classic Titanium Man yet, but if they do, they'll probably go the Deluxe route. And you can be sure they're gonna charge more than the $27.00 Marvel Select did. So getting guys like him as a BAF is a great deal. Also, I agree that guys like Armadillo work best as BAFs vs. Deluxe. Don't see them getting rid of BAFs in favor of Deluxes, though, and bear in mind BAFs don't "have" to be large figures (Ares, Hit Monkey, Mantis, Okoye for example) because Hasbro seems to think that's what moves a wave...personally, if I like the entire wave, then I'll get it whether I'm into the BAF or not. But I've never bought a wave just to get the BAF, even if I really wanted the BAF (Kingpin comes to mind; I passed on it but luckily, they made him later). As for obscure figures, I'm all for them. Legends is an outgrowth of Toybiz and when those came out, they weren't centered around movies or tv, it was the comics. We bought the comics, the figures are driven by us, not the people who liked the movies but never heard of them before 2008. Those obscure figures, particularly when done well like Psycho-Man, Maverick, Puma and YES, Rock Python, really enhance the series...besides, it helps stop over saturation of the other figures. Overall, I agree that BAFs can be the lesser known figures and Deluxe somewhat more high profile.

  9. I agree, while I have gotten some BAFs recently, I could hardly call them must-haves. The idea of a BAF is not really as viable in today's market. The money would be better spent on Deluxes and more accessories, to make the figures better value for money. Also it won't be the end of obscure figures as Hasbro will need them to keep the line fresh.

  10. I think we should do away with BAF's. My most wanted for a long time was Kingpin, but there was not a single figure in his wave that I wanted. The figures from the Juggernaut wave got so expensive so quickly I figured there was no way I was gonna finish him, same with Vol. 1 Groot. Fortunately all of those figures were released as deluxe. Both Thanos MCU BAF's got rereleased with more accurate deco and paint, so did Ebony Maw. Most "must have" figures like MODOK and now Mojo are straight deluxe releases now. I think Hasbro should ditch the concept and use the budget for more accessories and effects, instead of an arm I have to try and sell for 3-4 bucks so it's not taking up room in my bins.

  11. I hope they keep doing the more obscure characters as BAFs. Seems the only possible way we will ever get Bushmaster, Griffin, Attuma, or a comics accurate Executioner. they should do a deluxe for the Brotherhood, though. A three pack of Blob, Avalanche, and Destiny would sell well, even at a price point over $100.

  13. First off, it's as ridiculous as I thought it would be. Either they need to use mock up pictures of what the figure would look like if it was a window box or someone at Hasbro needs to get John Tyler Christopher on the horn to do some nice looking, if a bit inaccurate art for the boxes. Just putting the "official" product shots on the front is super cheesy and just plain ayass cheap. Yeah I know, I know, artists cost money, but don't we pay enough for these things, and especially on these special editions that don't come with a BAF part or many accessories either, the least they can do is make them look decent. Personally, I can imagine the MIB crowd is none to happy about how these look either, but I can imagine it'll be even much worse. I'm not an MIB guy but as a collector I know what I wanna spend my money on and MIB'ers support the line as much as anyone else. And good luck to all the MIB'ers out there who buy from the Brick 'n' Mortars, because you can't actually open the boxes, and who knows what the hell is in the box? At that point your just counting on the fact that whatever is said to be in the box is actually in the box.....but you can't be sure. There could be an old Toybiz figure in the box, there could be and old Power Ranger in the box, there could be a freaking half a roll of Pilsbury biscuits in the box. At that point you're basically paying for only a box full of faith. And then, if you ever get into a situation where you buy one, never open it, then sell it for $600 dollars on the secondary market, what's to keep the person you sold it to from just saying the figure was a swap? Yep, the MIB crowd is gonna suffer the most. Another thing I have a concern with here, and it has been brought up by others, and I think the actual answer is not something anyone is gonna like, but what about the recent Toybiz Retro line? How do they plan on approaching this? I'm 99 percent sure what the answer to that is already though. In order for these figures to remain "authentic" they are still going to come in the same packaging, but since they are still gonna be using plastic bubbles Hasbro's gonna have to tack on a few extra dollars on the already too inflated cost of the figure. For the environment. Cuz if your gonna continue to "ruin" the environment while you stand on your soapbox and wave your environmental flag while you do it, you might as well make a few extra bucks while doing it. Y'know, for the future......and stuff.

  14. I came in here actually solely to see what this new packaging is all about, and how the figure was held inside, I guess it's what I imagined, what is really the most unironic elements of this packaging was poor Dan got to show us exactly one of the big huge fears of these windowless packages, some terrible paint apps. Nice one Hasbro, not curbing our worries at all with this. the environment will be happy, but we might all end up with a collection that half the figures look like Jackson Pollock did the deco.

  15. Glad that helped you out, I personally really like the figure, nothing I would have changed except the emblem on the chest being a lighter shade, I'm just happy to have a new classic comic strange for the ranks.

  16. We've needed a new Howard in Legends for years. It's kind of hard to believe Hasbro hasn't made a figure of him yet. With Blade, I assume you mean the "Vampire Wars" figure and not the main figure from the movie line.

  17. I'm down for this. Classic DD on the new Vulcan buck. Powerman on the Herc buck. Iron Fist on anything but the Pizza Spidey buck. Psst........Hasbro, this is one time where the Sunfire buck would be appropriate. There's a lot of street level heroes that need some love. We know Echo will be getting an MCU figure eventually, but what about a comic version now? Nomad? Duggan? Solo? There are so many classic villains that thay can tie in to anniversary lines too. I'm just tired of all the same MCU characters over and over again.

  18. I will be very surprised if we don't get a redo of the Toys R Us boxed set of the Original X-Men next year for their anniversary (That would be a MASSIVE miss on Hasbro's part). And there are still a good number of classic 60's and 70's characters that need to be done or re-done (Power Man, Iron Fist, Sabretooth, Drax, Gamora, Nebula, Ronan, Daredevil, Ant-Man, Valkyrie, Blade). And we still need a classic Beta Ray Bill.

  19. i mean at this point every year is probably the anniversary of a dozen different comic beginnings/famous storylines/marvel movies, so i think its tricky to predict what anniversary theme they might choose. I wonder if they will try and continue with the 20th line or retro lines once they eliminate plastic from packaging, seems like a lot of the appeal would be gone. That said, i do expect hasbro to revisit some of the older toybiz figures they haven't redone already, feels like we've moved past the 90s and now the aughts are hitting their prime, in terms of nostalgia. i could be wrong Mainly just looking forward to getting more characters that fall into my primary collecting focus area, namely comics characters from 60s thru mid 80s. However, i anticipate the number of "new" characters that fall into that group will continue to diminish each year, and also that more and more of them will be either exclusives or part of 2-pack, 3-pack, etc. Hopefully more cosmic characters as well, from any era.

  20. It's Venom with a tongue shaped like a S and a three. So the villain is obviously going to be Bully Maguire from Spider-Man 3
