  1. 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.

  2. 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?

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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 P

  9. 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.

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!

  19. 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 splaye

  20. 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

  21. I cannot believe we haven't gotten a Crystal in the near 20 years of the line; a big name Avenger, Fantastic Four member, and Inhuman Royal Family member- she fills in so many gaps. Hope we see her in the upcoming FF wave.

  22. 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!

  25. 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.

  27. "HasLab presents the Marvel Legends Celestial. If they get enough backers pledging $80,000, Hasbro will produce this 30 foot tall fully-articulated action figure. It's great for display inside your local high school gymnasium or aircraft hanger. After 7,500 pre-orders, they'll unlock the first tier: Ego the Living Planet, who is roughly the size of a Chevy Silverado."

  29. 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

  31. 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 w

  32. Errr....what! Ummm.....longtime fans? Huh, I'm sure all three of them will be ecstatic. Let's not act like this book is something it isn't fellas. Nobody asked for this and the next person that says "Man, I wish they would reboot a marginally successful comic series based on those relatively lukewarm supporting characters The Eternals that never really met expectations.", will be the first. And I'm sure Stan Lee and Jack Kirby are just looking down with baited breath on the prospect of yet another one of their creations being turned into another politically driven train wreck at light speed.

  33. 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

  34. Ive been scratching my head at the notion of an Eternals movie, as Marvel has so many other characters they could do. However I wish them success. One of the issues I have is that from the photo, none of these look anything like comics; well aware that film/tv productions often wont look the same, but there needs to be some resemblance. Virtually none here, and if this action figure is any indication, there's not going to be. The good thing is my wallet will get a break. 😷

  35. The Hand ninja should be released as an army builder. If not it better be the double packed figure so collectors can army build. Most excited for Firestar. Better be the classic and not the modern, especially since she's coming with Ms. Lion.

  38. 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

  42. Is Cecilia Reyes somehow more absurd as a super hero/villain name than Jean Grey, Emma Frost, Sebastian Shaw, Bishop, Selene, Trevor Fitzroy, etc.? She's a character in a super hero book, but unlike most of the aforementioned she never really had any interest in being a super hero or involving herself in that drama. She just happens to be a mutant with a useful power, and got wrapped up in it all. And believe it or not, not all collectors are grognards stuck in the bronze age. I'd be all over Armor, Dust, or Pixie. Anole doesn't do much for me, but Cyclops in his Astonishing costume is definit

  43. 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.

  44. 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.
