    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 helmet. Captain America movie, look at the World's Fair scene. The guy in the red jumpsuit in the large tube? That's the Original Human Torch. Comic book fans know not only did he fight in WW2 alongside Cap and Sub-Mariner, his android body would be the basis for another android decades later- the Vision. Iron Man 2, there's a map of Africa in the background and a pinpoint to Wakanda. There was a HUGE cheer in the theatre then,, because fans knew what that meant. Not to mention all the little after-credit scenes in the movies with Thanos...comic guys knew instantly who that was, and some big crap was about to break off. But if you only know the MCU, that purple dude has no meaning. There's plenty of room for both comic and MCU fans. MCU only fans definitely have the right to express opinions. The great thing is, you can always get some back issues of the comics to see where the inspiration for the movies come from. Its a fantastic time for superheroes! Figures, TV, Movies and Comics!

    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 head to his page here: Pretender Bludgeon, Marvel Legends/Transformers crossover

    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 a bit more helpful to yourself and society. I'm not talking about donating, or even loaning, but you could probably boost those 500 into something more like investing in some business for when the dust settles.

    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.

    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. If something is an issue here then it's most likely an issue shared through most of the fandom. There are as many people happy with the products as there are unhappy with them, it's just that the complaints stick out more because the happy people are happy so there's really no reason to accentuate it. As for the issues you lined out, well they really are worthy of criticism. I think the whole Johnny Storm situation is mostly based on the body styles they chose for each figure. The first Walgreens figure was incorrectly done on the Bucky Cap mold which everyone pretty much felt was too "big" for the figure, then when they did the powered down version he was on the correct sized buck, which was available at the time they did the first one, and now they don't really match. Of course, this created the desire to have the powered on version to be redone on the correct sized buck. It only reinforces the fact that they used the wrong buck to begin with. For Cannonball, man I don't think anyone can really make an excuse for what was done there. That was just a major swing and a miss. There was almost to many things wrong with it to fully explain. I know the intent was to make it different from the first version but that was the completely wrong way to go about it. First off, there's really no excuse they couldn't have foregone the BAF piece and probably made the blast effect smaller to allow them to include legs. Secondly, the blast effect itself was just wrong. It wasn't a blast effect as much as it was a "blast off" effect. It literally portrays the split second it takes Sam to blast off from a standing position to whenever he takes flight creating the prominent blast radius on the ground. Otherwise, it's completely useless for flying poses or action poses. It's literally about as useful as a McFarlane Color Tops figure from a few years ago. Thirdly, that blast effect was entirely too large in the first place. They actually could have given him legs and just included two smaller effects, one "blasting off" and one "flying" that covered the feet and lower legs for the amount of plastic they used on that giant blast effect to replace his entire bottom half. He is rarely shown in modern times, and only by certain artists with his entire lower body engulfed in flames. They could have met a comfortable medium between the classic look they were trying to meet and the more modern portrayal.

    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.

    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 Riott figure I wanted. As a 47 year-old man, I don't wanna admit how close I came to doing some kind of giggling Spongebob-esque "Happy Dance." I coulda done so much damage there. Finally I just had to grab the Cap I came for, and backed slowly away. Self control is its own reward . . . but it still sucks.

    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.

    The running gag of the Superior Foes was that they were the Sinister Six despite being five people, so maybe this is Hasbro's own take on it. "They're the Sinister Six, but they are only five characters... aaand there are only four figures."

    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. He isn't a traditional bruiser type. He absorbs kinetic energy which means he basically had to take some licks before he reached his maximum strength potential. At his peak he's stood toe to toe with the likes of Hulk and Thing (for a little while, anyway). Even then he had to utilize or expel the energy within a fairly short time, or risk permanent damage or further mutation. The reason that he's so top heavy is because as a child he was hit by a vehicle and his mutant power activated as a reflex to protect him. The energy of the impact overloaded his small body and deformed him. As he wasn't familiar with his powers at the time he didn't know he had to expend the energy and his body stayed permanently deformed. This causes him constant physical and mental pain and his upbeat attitude is mostly a cover to his true feelings. It's quite a well woven story David created to pluck him from even deeper obscurity and give him this whole backstory why he was who he was and why he looked like he did. His name was literally chosen by him on the fly, through his own trademark sarcasm, when during a press conference to introduce the team as the government sanctioned X-Team, a reporter verbalized that Guido was obviously the team "Strong Guy" and asked him his code name, to which he replied.....you guessed it. This was much to the chagrin of the straight laced (and cocky) Quicksilver, with whom he quickly developed a love/hate bromance with, while also developing a big brother relationship with Rahne. He really was a integral part of the team who became a fan favorite, so much that Jim Lee lobbied to have him put on his own X-Men Blue team as an analog to the Yellow team's Colossus (before he quickly cut bait and ran to Image, of course). Long story short, after David's run with X-Factor his character was put into the hands of several "less than stellar" writers and totally misused for a few more years, basically extinguishing his rising star. It would have been like handing a new popular character like Deadpool into the hands of some no-talent that didn't know how to develop a character instead of Fabian Nicieza. I know that was quite a long winded breakdown of Strong Guy that no one really asked for, but though I'm sure the majority of us on this site know about Strong Guy, I'm seeing a lot of "Who the hell is this guy?" and I thought I'd offer some insight. He was, at one time, a very good character that many of us 90's fans learned to like and he's one of my own personal faves who've I've been waiting to see in ML for a very long time, so I was getting this wave even if it had 7 goofy versions of DP or otherwise. And to Hasbro's credit, it took them waaaay too long, but when they finally did it, damn, did they do it right!

    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.

    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 three regular posters is: inadequate curves on female figures. Ohhh, boy. Here we go again. Blathering about 'Disney PC', and 'body shaming' and 'hurting feelings' and clearly feeling they are being discriminated against if they don't get female action figures with 38DDD upper torso sculpts and 16" waists. And, here was me thinking we didn't do politics + toys anymore here, because it's toxic. And causes people to post insults in response. And rinse and repeat. Here's the thing. I remember the Marvel Swimsuit Specials too (1992 & 1995. Even as a kid I thought these were dumb). But these weren't anomalies - in the early 1990's, Jim Lee and Joe Madureira and Rob Liefield and J. Scott Campbell and Todd MacFarlane and Whilce Portacio and 83 million other pencillers - Marvel, DC & Image - really went all out nuts doing ludicrously exaggerated and anatomically impossible versions of women's bodies (oh, yeah, and men's too. Cyclops was never a weight-lifting body guy, he's a skinny, gawky kid with tone and definition. Like how Chris Bachalo does him now). Every one giggles about Liefield lines and superfluous pockets. There was other stuff too which tends towards bad cliche. Like Scott Campbell's infamous rendition of Medusa. Like, ouch, Scoob. Still, that way of depicting our favourite heroes didn't offend me then, and doesn't now. I'd expect a 1990's Jean Grey action figure to look like 1990's comic (or, to a lesser extent, cartoon) Jean Grey. And sure enough, she does. [Boy, I still love that UXM 'Love Triangle' 3-pack. Just exceptional. Best Legends 3-pack ever. Ever]. Anyway, by 1999, that way of pencilling pretty much stopped. And it's not coming back. It's ONE VERSION of these characters. What came before, and what came after - about 60 years of comics - is far more valid and representative and will - SHOULD - be used as the basis of a sculpt. Storm looks great. And this is still an advanced protype. Please, please, please stop doing that knee-jerk reactionary stuff: personally, I don't want to insult you because of your politics (and Politics - there is a difference, but neither sits comfortably on a collecting website). I'd actually much rather listen to you, as you all have very good/interesting things to say and share without reaching for the 'I hate modern toys. I hate Disney. I hate PC. I hate....I hate...' or 'Hasbro is making me buy toys I don't want to, ' BS. (I'll admit though, that latter sentiment did make me laugh though - I started visualising Hasbro stormtroopers frog-marching fan boys down to Walgreens, and threatening to shoot them if they don't buy Squirrel Girl). You just don't need to push that button. Doesn't matter how right you are, or how right you think you are, it's better to be nice than to be right. Or, alternatively, just stop collecting/posting if it offends too much. And, I hope you'll allow me a digression too after a long ol' post. It's serious. I am 100% psyched for what's coming Legends wise, but as I live in the UK, I'm concerned about whether or not I'll be able to get it in light of the (soon to be declared) SoE here. I've already tested positive for COVID-19 and have been in self-isolation (this is day 6 for me, maybe only 2 more days, maybe 8). I'm more or less fine (ish: I have chronic asthma), but miserable & anxious. I'm worried about my parents (78 and 76, one with COPD) and my partner is even more terrified for hers (both 74, diabetic, one seriously immuno-compromised following stomach surgery last autumn). A lot of stuff is going to be shutting down here (football, sports, public events, festivals, cinemas etc. etc. already have, but schools are still open at this point). Infrastructure will be hit soon. And this situation MIGHT add cost, delay and availability issues to every thing, not least these new waves and figures (and my pre-orders! Black Widow wave & Grey Black Widow; Iron Man 2020; AOA wave and a bunch more). No-one knows. But this is real, this is serious and people you know may well die over the next 12 months. If you're lucky enough NOT to be affected by this yet, good: I hope you can all avoid it. Be sensible, take care and every possible precaution you can and stay healthy and aware of people who desperately need help. And if you hear anyone saying, yeah, they've got a cough, a fever/higher temperature and/or feel a little bit fluey, but, it ain't too bad, so they're going to keep right on working as normal, please hit them hard and forcibly frogmarch them home, making sure they follow whatever guidance has been issued by public health officials. Because this is why people are dying, and why this virus is escalating at an unprecedented and unparalleled way and with a statistically improbable mortality rate. It's kill rate is making bubonic plague or SARS seem like a walk in the park. And we have - leaked by Public Health England this morning - a year of this to go. ONE YEAR. 80% of the UK's population impacted. 7.9million hospitalised (source: the guardian.com/world/2020). Heavy, eh? So, for me, these reveals are a little bit of positivity and goodness in a very bleak time (and believe me, compared to some people, I'm not suffering at all).

    Don't know if I go along with everything youre saying here, but I do see the overuse of gamma power, and for that matter, all the radioactive-bitten-by-spider characters out there. It does dilute the original premise. Most of these people got their powers thru freak, nearly one- of -a -kind accidents that should, by all rights, have killed them. There were enough unknown factors involved, that duplication was nearly impossible. And if their storylines went on for decades like that, then suddenly its like you can get your powers from some assembly production line, the uniqueness is gone. If its that easy to make a Hulk (or Cap, Spidey, F4, DD, etc) then why wasn't it done before?? SHIELD or AIM or whoever coulda had their own unstoppable super troops. In reality, the writers just don't have any original imaginative material left so they steal from what went before. But the man has a point too: just because its not what we all knew or grew up with, doesn't automatically mean its no good. And lets be honest, just like movie producers, publishers and editors are always gonna try to catch that lightning in a bottle twice.

    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 impressive (its too short imo) and the figure has other flaws, mainly his arms have a pretty limited range of motion. I do appreciate hasbro taking a chance on a legless figure but feels like the execution fell short. And i will note that overall, when it comes to hasbro's least popular figures, at least most of them represented an ambitious attempt to do something different (6-arm spidey comes to mind) C) Hydroman is similarly a good idea whose execution was a bit lacking, mainly in that his powered arms have such a limited range of motion and make him so top heavy. That said, i still like the figure. And a depowered version of Morrie sounds like an awfully boring figure. People mainly tend to post when they are super enthusiastic about a figure or if they want to complain about something. Most people who are reasonably satisfied or 'meh' about a figure don't bother. So often reading online forums can lead to mistaken impressions about how well-received a figure is by the larger collecting community. Furthermore, a lot of posters on forums such as these are customizers who are naturally going to view every figure with an eye towards how they can improve it to match what they envision as the ideal depiction, so they are likely to comment on what they view as hasbro's inaccuracies or inadequacies. Finally, many collectors also take acba pics and for such endeavors it is useful to be able to switch from a powered down version to powered up (and vice versa), so that's where some of the complaints come from. If you are just doing a shelf display, i would imagine the powered up version would suffice for most people.

    I think more characters could benefit from the butterfly joint, and toe articulation, as long as it's the right characters. Their female articulation is lacking though, and they need more hands other than the splayed fingers and fists. I think overall Hasbro is really coming into it with the articulation. The bigger concern is the lack of accessories. Their should never be a figure that doesn't come with anything, but a BAF piece. Alt head, alt set of hands & 2 power effects should be the minimum. That's the real problem.

    "But who will think of the children?!?" -- People in the 21st Century for no good reason (when it comes to this particular subject). Get real folks. Setting aside the clarification we've already gotten from Disney/Marvel (It's not going to be a "T" it's probably going to be an "LG" and it's already been heavily rumored for The Eternals), even if Marvel WAS going to introduce a transsexual character it's not like they're going to show the person naked to confirm their biological gender or go into graphic detail on the medical procedures they had to make them into the gender they felt suited them. It'll be as matter-of-fact and casual as the Russo brother appearance in Endgame: A throwaway line or two that most children that are "too young to be exposed to such things" won't even pick up on, anyway. The existence of LGBT individuals in real-life or entertainment is no threat to the sanity of children, or even to their own sexual orientations, and acting like it is plays into some extremely negative stereotypes that have been used to justify abuse, oppression, and even the outright murder of LGBT individuals around the world.

    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 undermines the exploration of what has become one of the major issues of the modern world.

Did Brie Larson personally travel to your house to murder your family, torture your dog and turn your toilet roll upside down? Holy heck, when you think there's only one with such unwarranted hateboner for this movie in this forum another one pops up and one ups him.

    The problem I have with that effect is that its so awkward and really didn't have to be. You just don't throw anything like that. They should've gone with something like this (from either of these examples but the one where he flings it at the Hulk is probably the best).

    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.

    Ok...what happened here? These look like 4" Star Wars type figures, at first glance, especially Yelena. There's just a generic "blah" feel to most of the wave, and I'm pissed AGAIN that no one can seem to get the Black Widow right. Did they just re-use the buck from the Endgame figure?? C'mon, show her some LOVE....this is the BLACK WIDOW. Marvel's premiere spy. I know they can do better than this. And why on earth Red Guardian doesn't have a helmet is beyond me. This BAF is not the version I was expecting- I thought for sure the classic Crimson Dynamo suit (Marvel Universe did it in the 4" size, and it was damn near straight out of the comic) was gonna be here. Sorry. I like Spy Master but otherwise....Passing on this wave.

    There are so many unmade heroes and villains that narrowing it down to the ultimate eight (nine) would be agony. Instead, I did my ultimate niche wave: Marvel's LEGION OF MONSTERS. Blade (Tomb of Dracula) Dracula (Tomb of Dracula) Werewolf by Night - with two interchangeable heads, one classic Ploog version, one long-nosed Sienkiewicz version Daimon Hellstrom Brother Voodoo (classic) Satana - with two interchangeable heads, one with the rams horns N'Kantu, The Living Mummy - should be tall, at least Hercules' height if not Colossus' Simon Garth, the Zombie Build-a-Figure.

    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 some recognition & respect. Of course they could include an alternate Karla Sofen head sculpt to do Dark Ms. Marvel. Banshee & Siryn - Hasbro needs to wipe the taste of all the figures they did during the Dark Days of ML out of our mouths. Hasbro has all the parts to do both of these (besides new head sculpts) and do them both right. Spiral & Longshot - Again, a redo and a never done. Hasbro actually did a multi-arm character the right way with the first Spiral, but her rigid remaining articulation and those stupid rotating ankles make her ripe for the redo. And, of course Longshot's never been done by Hasbro, but I have no doubt they can easily out do Toybiz's excellent version. Nick Fury, Jr. & Maria Hill - Fury would basically serve as a Shield Agents army builder on the Reaper mold. It could include swap head sculpts for Commander (Old Steve) Rogers and Masked Agent. Similarly, Hill would have swap head sculpts for Sharon Carter and a Masked Agent. Falcon & Winter Soldier - The Disney+ show is on it's way and it will set pace for reception of all Disney+ offerings in the future, so expect them to put the best effort forward. Hasbro should do the same. We've had some decent MCU versions of both but we've been begging for good comic versions of them for many moons now. If they really need to they can include some newer, better MCU head sculpts to be used with these figures or their previous MCU figures. Modern Strong Guy & Monet (M) - I know Strong guy is just getting his first 6" figure EVER (thank you, Hasbro), but I distinctly remember many people being upset it wasn't his more modern X-Factor Investigations version with the black shirt and jeans. Assuming the big puffy jacket on the upcoming figure is an overlay, then the base figure should already be done and some simple alterations to that buck should do.

    Best Friends: Kitty Pryde / Magik Brotherhood: Avalanche / Pyro Hellfire Club: Black King (Sebastian Shaw) / White Queen (Emma Frost) Like Father, Like Daughter: Banshee / Siryn Mojoverse: Longshot / Spiral X-Force Love Triangle: Archangel / Fantomex / Psylocke I could go on and on, but the above each get at a need while having a theme.

    Thank you sir!! I'm still kinda shocked by the announcement; I was just saying I never win anything, and look what happened. I get this email notice from JC and my first thought was "did I say something to get banned from the forum" and I couldn't think what it could possibly be. And Yes...I'm gonna get as much Vision stuff as I can!

    It took some time to locate all my parts. As usual, I put them somewhere that I would remember then immediately forgot where I put them. As you said, the danger of adding too much woulda made him too leggy so I actually took it back down another 1/2 inch, but given how much I actually did add it actually turned out pretty good. As I was saying before, it is unpainted but a good paint job with a wash would really bring out the detail. @Benn, I didn't mean to take over the thread but you actually made me get off my ayass and finish this project. Maybe if we get enough interest we could partner up and see if we can make it happen.

    This is a strange and unique time for me...I actually have all currently available Marvel Legends products, both comic and MCU. It's even weirder because it's at a time when there is SO much product being released; as a result, I'm sending all of my excess good vibes to you all - best of luck in the hunt, because there's a lot out there!

    I'm pretty sure most people of colour already know it sucks to have every role written for, or otherwise given to, a white person. They don't need another high-profile reminder.
