  2. I can't speak for anyone but me, but I really don't care how anybody throws away their money . . . it's THEIR money. What bugs me, is that there are now figures that the other 99% of us will never see because Hasbro smells the blood in the water. There's never gonna be a BAF or Deluxe figure of Galactus, a Celestial, or Fin-Fang-Foom as long as HasScam can can count on schmucks to throw money at a ridiculously over sized, over produced, over priced version. While I'm at it, it kinda bugs me that Hasbro rewards these people with more money than common sense, while the other 99% of us, many

  3. As a retailer who has to consider my margins very carefully to make sure my staff is paid and the lights stay on, I can reliably tell you that $150 is actually a terrible margin on $500, and pretty standard for the toy industry (which subsists entirely on unsustainably low margins for retailers, a big part of why “wahh, why don’t retailers stock enough of anything” and “wahh, why are these toys so expensive” are complaints that are fundamentally at odds with one another; they would stock more if people would pay more). It’s cool that you got bootleg sentinels for cheaper and are happy with the

  7. Once again, foolishness from the Hasbro team. Leaving money on the table!! Do an Inhumans wave including Maximus (and Lockjaw as the BAF), or box set of the Royal Family + Lockjaw and put that jank on Hasbro Pulse (but in enough quantities that it doesnt sell out in 2 minutes please and thank you). I was content with not doing Black Bolt and Medusa because they've already been done, but both could do with an update. And none of this "updated" armor/hoodie/tattoo/90s streetwear nonsense. Get off my lawn. So very odd that they did Bolt, Medusa, Triton AND Karnak in 3.75" form but never Tri

  8. Im just the opposite...I love the Inhumans and want to see more of them...Crystal Gorgon Triton and Karnak from the Royal family as well as Maximus. For more FF villans I'd love to see Attuma included!

  9. What they need to do is give us a flamed on Torch in that body mold. The Walgreens release was just way too big. I'd use that one for my Original Human Torch, blur out the face. We also need to get a translucent/clear Invisible Woman. How on earth has this taken so long?? I'd say, again, that Hasbro has just been sleeping on the wealth of figures the Fantastic Four 'verse could bring to the Legends team. To your point on villains, Yes! Mole Man & his Moloids (troop builders, and lets not forget Skrull troop builders), Impossible Man, Molecule Man, Dragon Man, Annihilus, Blastarr

  11. Definitely agree with this. As for why there is an argument, it comes down to two complaints: 1. "I don't want to buy figures for characters i don't want just to complete the BAF - why can't he just be sold separately??" This neglects that of course you CAN buy the BAF separately on ebay etc but it will cost at least $60 in most cases, and often considerably more. People like to point to deluxe figures but in most cases those are priced lower because they are repaints of an existing BAF (that is, the tooling costs were already part of an earlier wave's budget). MODOK and Archangel's w

  12. I think Hasbro has hit the perfect divide of BAFS and Deluxe figures. Some characters that have a strong enough of a presence like WarMachine, Red Hulk, Toxin, Archangel get very nice deluxe releases that sell phenomenally, then the more obscure or less likely to get solo releases or are harder to fit into standard packaging like Man Thing, Wendigo, Sugar Man, Strong Guy get the BAF treatment. A either way we get to choose to chase the BAF or get the deluxe really it’s win/ win. I really don’t get why there is even an “argument”. Don’t get the whole MCU vs Comic “ fight” either. We are in

  13. I know, right? This thing is awesome! How cool would it be if Hasbro started doing these on a regular basis as opposed to BAFs or HasScam? I guarantee you, if they produced a half-way decent Galactus in a 50-60 dollar "Deluxe" format comparable to MODOK, they'd make the take from a HasScam release look like chump-change.

  14. Of course they are not going to put a nazi symbol on a red skull. These are toys for kids. Marvel has never over written the fact that Red skull is a nazi.

  15. Just sort of gauging interest/ranting about BAFs as a whole. Personally, I feel that with the rise of scalpers and a lot of stores (especially in certain areas) that the BAF format has struggled of late. It also seems that unless you complete a BAF quickly, you likely never will, most BAFs before 2018 are pretty impossible to buy online without donating an organ. I've completed 4 in my time (Warlock, Man-Thing, Sasquatch, and Wendigo) but I've just decided to completely give up on Sandman, Rhino, Allfather, and Absorbing Man. I like the gimmick, no argument here, but too often

  21. I was wondering if an Endgame Captain Marvel was going to be in the mix. I'll have to see what the set looks like to see if I'm down for replacing my Rescue, though, and if not I'll just stick with the first MCU Captain Marvel figure.

  22. While I love that Hasbro finally gave us comic fans a classic Hulk fig in the 80th anniv line a couple yrs ago, he was always too huge mass wise for me so when I came upon a Gameverse Hulk at GS on sale for $19, I snagged him with the express purpose of making my own slimmer 70s Hulk. I used the 80th anniv Hulk head sculpt & neck peg for the GV Hulk body. Wiped off the tribal tats with paint remover, washed figure, took it apart as much as I could, sanded down all potential paint rub areas & then used Anita's acrylic paints Purple, Shamrock Green & Olive Green for the finger/toe na

  26. Nope. Loeb was in charge of Marvel Tv at the time and hated Feige. He basically sold all rights he could so Feige couldn't use them. Also Ike Perlmutter was the man who brought Marvel out of bankruptcy. He did that by selling the movie rights but he was an extreme rascist / sexist person. When Disney took over, Feige wanted to do more with the universe and got Perlmutter and Loeb to leave.

  27. Personally, I'd love more Inhumans figures . . . starting with Crystal. Unfortunately, I also have to agree that as far as the Inhumans are concerned, Marvel has done a masterful job of tossing the baby out with the bath-water. Still, there was a time we weren't sure we'd ever see any X-Men or Fantastic Four figures in the line either. Anything can happen.

  28. If you're in the minority, I'm there with you. I would love to get some Inhumans figures, although I think both Black Bolt and Medusa need to be redone. And while Crystal might not be in the main six-figure wave, I think a lot of us are expecting additional retro-carded figures to trickle out after the wave like they did with the retro Spider-Man figures.

  29. You're right, its ridiculous. When they announce their Monday/someday roll outs, when they do their interviews, those are not kid oriented. They're not anti-kid, mind you....of course they Hasbro expects kids to want these. But ain't no kid, no mom, out there bustin' out fitty bones for MODOK, or $350.00 for a Sentinel. GTFOH. When they do their action figure reviews, do they not stipulate on that there youtube video, that theyre "not for kids"?? In big ol' caps, "ADULT COLLECTORS". When you in those toy aisles at Tarjay, lookin' for that newest Legends wave, or that exclusive that doesn't ex

  32. This is the only other MK 85 Iron Man that Hasbro has made, not counting the international "Best of" wave. And the reason people are going ga-ga, myself included, is because this new release fixes all the issues of the original: the arc reactor's shape, the lack of alternate heads and accessories. And that's only on the Iron Man side. The Thanos figure even has a different upper torso sculpt and new forearms. And it's also the only other Endgame Thanos Hasbro has released. I'm not even sure why you mention Infinity War since the sculpts for the Iron Man and Thanos figures for that movie were c

I was enjoying the moment in Way Of X#1 where nightcrawler pulls a practical joke on him which backfired...what I'm really trying to say, this new story sucks! if he is found guilty he will gone in the X books like Sabretooth...Really liked Sabretooth and now he is just a flash back in comics
