  1. So, next year is the 50th anniversary of Luke Cage; he was the first Black comic book character to star in their own solo series, so he's pretty important. To celebrate that; how would you feel about a Heroes for Hire 2-pack of 70s Luke Cage and 70s Iron Fist?

  2. There are a distressing number of comic fans who seem blissfully ignorant of the fact that they've grown up (relatively speaking) to be people that Steve Rogers would be a hell of a lot more likely to punch in the face than agree with. And who are amazingly ignorant of how progressive and "woke" superhero comics in general have been for oh, I dunno...as far back as Superman taking on abusive husbands and slumlords when Action Comics was still in single-digits.

  3. I love how the "muh comics/shows/movies" people make it easy to see how seriously they want to be taken by how much they misspell "LGBTQ." Saves the trouble reading when you can instantly see where they stand by just that.

  5. Marvel has always prided itself on being "The world outside your window." Ignoring social ills and political climates just so people can feel comfortable with themselves means it's no longer meeting that statement. Being able to "not pay attention to Politics" means you can ignore problems exist because you feel like they don't affect you (and indeed they might not...or you might even benefit from the status quo, even if you might not realize exactly how), and if you remain ignorant of a problem then you cannot be any real part of helping to solve the problem. Entertainment across all media and genres always will be politically charged to some degree, because it always has been (and before certain people start parsing words, I don't mean every single piece of entertainment is political. I mean every medium and genre has been politicized at one point or another). And that's a good thing, because sometimes letting some of those problems be portrayed through the lens of fiction is the only way some people come to realize the problem exists. And once we all can agree that there IS a problem we can start working on how to fix it. But we're still working on that first part, at the moment.

  6. Maybe if evil white men would stop oppressing black women, they wouldn't need to talk about it. Seems like this is a problem that solves itself if you just act like a decent human, instead of getting annoyed and offended by all those people asking for dignity and equality.

  7. 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.

  8. I was obsessed with this version of Namorita/Kymaera as a kid and thought her redesign was so cool in all its over-the-top-90s glory. Really aimed to pay attention to every detail. We need more New Warriors in Legends!

  9. I'm sorry someone came into your house and grabbed your hand and forced you to click "play" and then held you down until the review had completed so you couldn't stop watching it. That must have been very traumatic for you.

  10. In the mirror? I'll see a straight cis white man. I have never been the victim of racism. Not once. That's the sort of privilege I enjoy as a white man in the US. Bigotry only has power when it comes from people who enjoy social privilege. One person hating people with a particular characteristic is a symptom of bigotry, not bigotry itself. I don't harbour bias against white people. I just pay attention, and listen to non-white people when they tell me how their lives are affected by my actions.

  12. I'd love to see that in print. Not saying its not true, just that I'd want to see where/when/who made such a statement because it flies in the face of reason. If they can do Ghost Rider- flaming skull and all- Blackheart, Red Goblin, etc. then a "no devil" policy makes no sense. Mephisto is basically a red-skinned dude in an all-red get up, with wild ass Phyliss Diller hair. Red Goblin surely looks way more "devilish" than that. And, I agree with @RyanDaly that if they're gonna be that foolish about (some people could say unfounded) concern with physical retailers, they could just use Hasbro Pulse.

  13. People's response to this is a good indicator of why I don't read fan theories. Not making fun of anyone who is upset. But I saw a LOT of people all over the web who were dead set on Mephisto being revealed as the mastermind behind everything (possibly played by Evan Peters) and that seemed like a stretch to me.

  15. 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!

  16. 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

  17. 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.

  19. 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.).

  20. 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.

  21. 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.

  23. Its a shame, because Legends is clearly killing it on face sculpts and paints for the female figures now. They really did a nice job here and the lighter eyebrows is a great touch. Funny how such a little thing makes such a difference. If only they'd bring that same skill to the body- its so damn generic now. Actually this time this body isn't so far off, but she doesn't have calf rotation, she doesn't have bicep rotation or double jointed elbows. That head deserves better. She's missing the stripes down her costume. Also, Darkstar's main thing is her dark energy (opaque black repulsors maybe?) and they should've included some kind of effects for that. I do like that they gave her 3 sets of alt hands though. Definitely a step in the right direction! I can't wait to see them do her brother Vanguard and his overlapping symbols of the worker’s State.

  24. Retro Toybiz celebration is a cool idea. I'd love it if they would go back, WAY back to the Golden Age and give us the Timely/Marvel characters that started it all. At the very least we should have Sub-Mariner, Human Torch, Captain America with his first shield. Bucky, Toro, Original Vision, Miss America, Whizzer, Red Raven, Destroyer, Blazing Skull, Namora.

  25. Ah Armor Wars. The year this all went down was quite the year of change at Marvel. Captain America was just the Captain, Tony had this Silver Centurion Armor, Hulk was grey, and Spidey was sporting the classic black. Thor was all armored up. If you took a break from comics and came back in this era you’d hardly recognized anyone. This was the first time I witnessed the rift between Cap and Tony as the Captain arrived at the Vault to try to talk some sense into Tony. Only for Tony to turn on Cap! Riveting !! Man this was good stuff... this would make a pretty great retro wave

  26. I want the comic based Warriors Three. I'd love to get them in their own 3 pack but if the marketers don't think that would sell, then I'd put them in a Thor wave, with: Classic Thor, Bearded head alt, whirling Mjolnir accessory Hogun the Grim, blue/black Mace Lady Sif in the fan favorite outfit Volstagg Classic Beta Ray Bill & Stormbreaker Fandral Classic Moondragon OR Firelord BAF: Ulik OR comic Surtur

  27. Seriously, totally overstepping. No one has gotten ugly to anyone else about this matter. It's friendly back and forth, nobody's getting hurt here. Just cuz you've made it very clear in the past that you're no fan of the "this guy shoulda been this size" arguments doesn't mean other people don't want to partake. The fact that people keep it alive means it's important issue to the reasoning of why or why not people will or won't be getting it. Get over yourself, man. This forum's not all about you.

  31. My gripes are pretty much echoing everyone else but for starters: Accessories. I bought a $20 figure of Master Chief from Halo yesterday and he came with 5 extra hands, a rifle and a pistol that both could be mounted on his armor. Yet for $25 with Hasbro, Thor came with a fist and mjolnir. Why no lightning effects? I feel like Hasbro cheaps out as much as possible on this. Women: Seriously. They need to come up with some new bucks and stat. I like the Moonstone buck but every other Marvel lady seems way outdated and janky. And for the love of God stop with the jazz hands. That splayed hand has come with almost every female character I have. Articulation: This one might seem odd but I list it because for every step forward we get steps backwards. Again with Thor, his head can't move because of his hair but he can scratch his nose which is the sign of amazing articulation. Again with ladies (and deluxe Thanos) they have single joints in places. There should be no single joints in 2021. Innovation: The biggest innovations we've seen in the past 10 years of ML have been the new imaging for accurate faces, the articulation on Beast and the latest retro Spider-man (they're the only ones to my knowledge who have with that kind of motion) and we're getting pegless joints sometimes. Now that is all impressive but we're talking about the biggest toyline in the world. There should be new innovation constantly with the brain trust involved in this line. But... Greed: Hasbro cheapens out and spends as little to produce as possible. The afore mentioned lack of accessories and pegless joints, moving production to Vietnam who hasbro admittedgave them a better deal, constant reuse of things and what are they doing? Raising the price. I'm sure because of the license Hasbro has to pay a portion to Marvel but the cost can't be that much more, especially when they said themselves that their cost was getting cheaper because of my examples. Why then is $20 too low? Now understand, legends is my favorite line because these are my childhood friends being brought to physical reality and no matter I will still be collecting them so long as they produce characters I love. But sometimes I feel like Hasbro only cares about the dollar signs and not the product and stick it to the consumer because they know we're collectors who have to have that character or that specific costume or nostalgic piece for the shelf. But hey, I keep funding them so I guess my complaints are my own doing.

  32. There's no way they'd put out another Deadpool figure. Deadpools are rare anyway and we all know they never make that many Deadpool dedicated waves. My money's on a deluxe Rock Python!

  33. Gotta agree with this. I'm no particular fan of the Young Avengers, but it seemed to go over well with most of the fans. I did like the design and most of the concept of the characters, just didn't like the comic(s) all that much. I would very much like to see those character in plastic form along with a lot of others that have been named here. Most of them round out groups that we have yet to complete Heralds of Galactis : Firelord, Airwalker, Nova (Frankie Ray), Terrax (general release) New Warriors: Speedball, Namorita, Silhouette, Marvel Boy Inhumans: Crystal, Karnak, Triton, Gorgon, Lockjaw Excalibur: Meggan, Shadowcat (in black costume), Rachel (in her red costume), Widget This could turn into a wish list real quick, but this is just the beginning. If you're like me you're constantly remembering characters that you can't believe haven't gotten the plastic treatment yet. It almost seems endless. Yet, there are still characters I can't believe haven't gotten a redo yet, like US Agent, Banshee or Yellowjacket. I'm constantly torn between whether I wanna see those done first or the "never been done before" ones first. I'll take either/or TBH. I just need a break from the constant Cap/IM/Wolverine/Deadpool combine.

  34. Absolutely! Love Power Man & Iron Fist and would love to own Marvel Legends of the guys in their classic looks. Absolutely! I love Misty and Colleen and would love to own Marvel Legends of the ladies in their classic look. The Misty Knight we have already is... fine, but could be better. Bring 'em on!

  36. All this signifies is that they are completely out of ideas if they're scraping the bottom of the barrel to bring back this train wreck again. There's a reason most people don't even remember this part of Marvel Comics history. And those of us who do remember struggle daily to scrape every trace of it out of our heads.

  38. 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.

  41. 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.”

  43. 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.

  44. 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.
