  1. Short answer: they don't Long Answer: Why does Hasbro hate Rachel Summer? Why do they Hate Lockjaw? Why do They Hate Crystal? Why do they hate Dr. Druid? I could go on and on but the simple answers is they don't. Hasbro just hasn't gotten around to those characters. There are hundreds, if not Thousands of characters need to make. However, they can't fit them into their planning. They have to make figures that everyone would love in one case or the other and They have to fit in the Spider-men/Wolverine/Cap/IM etc because those sell the line to the general store who don't care for lesser characters. They have to put classic/modern version in to appeal to every one. So no. Hasbro does not hate any character (well maybe Hate Monger but there is an extremely perfect reason for that), there just is to much and not enough space. Give it time and they will get to the characters.

  2. The first thing that came to my mind when Hasbro revealed the Amazing Fantasy Spider-Man was "they need to repaint this into a Romita-style release." To be honest, the main reason I want this is so people stop touting the retro Spider-Man as the "perfect" capture of Romita's Spidey. It's not. 60s-80s Spider-Man needs a leaner body. Not skinny, just with less defined musculature. That being said, here's my digibash:

  3. No screaming head for Siryn. This is what I get for giving them the benefit of the doubt. So I guess we really can expect the next version to have passive hair but her expression will be dialed up to 11. You can't tell me this isn't deliberate. And so unnecessary, because YES, we WOULD buy another Siryn in another outfit.

  4. @HulkwummyRemember when is said to dial it waaay back? This wasn't that. Now no one can post here, and you're going to take a time out.

  5. if people didn't want to buy it for whatever reason, then that is their choice. There is nothing unforgivable about it. Their money, their choice. It's not just about you. This was a poorly price haslab and people spoke with their money which is their right. You need to grow up and realize that it not just about you.

  6. I don't think he's really fixated on the under boob, it looks more like he's pointing out something else Hasbro managed to screw up. She's been drawn several ways by several artists, but the Marc Silvestri version with the very prominent under boob is the most iconic. And apparently it means quite a bit to the other fans too cuz the backers went back down almost like it took them a second or two to realize the change.

  7. EXACTLY RIGHT! This goes back to my original thought that the fundamentally misunderstand what the tiers are supposed to do. In a sense, the true number of backers needed is NOT 9000, but whatever the number is for the last tier (which is currently a secret). That is NOT how kickstarters get funded.

  8. Wow. It looks even more ridiculous every time I see it. Its like the Joker and William DaFoe had a baby or something. If this is supposed to be representing a 6'6" character, the figure should TOWER over the Spider-Man figure, in fact it should be on the same scale as Maggott (6'6"-6'8"). The reviewer nailed it, it doesn't look like any Sabertooth ever made. The costume is wrong, the size, height, width etc. of the figure is just WRONG. I wouldn't have this thing in my collection if they sold it for a dollar. This is just contempt for the fans.

  9. 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...

  10. Eh... honestly F@#$ Hasbro and their HasLab B.S. They are pricing me out of standard figures so anything above and beyond they can take a leap. I’m finding more and more I’m enjoying this hobby less so I don’t think I’ll be supporting them like I did when this was an affordable hobby

  11. And that's why the Knull/Venom 2 Pack is my last Legends purchase. I get it but since my pay is staying the same while Legends increase' I have to back out. It's been fun though.

  12. I believe that the problem is not Russia or any other excuse given by Hasbro but the enormous greed that the company has shown. We are already seeing a huge price increase. The Spider-Man figures announced this week are priced at over $30.00 each with no acceptable justification. In two years we will have low quality figures for $50.00 each. Why do other companies like Diamond Select and McFarlane feature figures with new sculpts and a lot more plastic at lower prices? The big problem is that Marvel and Star Wars are in the hype, any crap made by Marvel sells and they know it. I have more than 800 figures from the Marvel Legends line, but this is the first time I think about stopping collecting.

  16. My unpopular opinion is I wish Hasbro de-prioritized the X-Men in favor of other Marvel characters. There was a time when I loved the X-Men, when they were my favorite characters. But that was almost thirty years ago. I won't say I've grown out of the X-Men, but I have grown away from them; I just don't care about them as much. I've got a handful of X-Men Legends, mostly from the All-New, All-Different era. There are only a few more that I want. I would prefer Hasbro devote time and resources to more Avengers waves, more Cosmic waves, more Fantastic Four waves, a Thor wave, more supervillain waves, etc.

  18. So are they gonna pull this same garbage with Banshee?? I get it, they wanna get more mileage out of Siryn. They could've included a screaming head with this one, and still do that by doing the same in her bell bottom suit or the X-Men "training" suit. This is NOT worth the cost anymore. We should be celebrating the excellence of Havok and Siryn and the debut of the new body sculpt. Instead we have another "eff u" to the fans as they sit back, laughing.

  19. I don't mean to be negative, but the lack of a screaming head for Siryn and energy effects for Vulcan (you know those cheap ones that they've been using for almost a decade) is pathetic. In a line with so much re-use, and already ridiculous price increases, they can't even give us the bare minimum. I want the wave, I do, but the figures just aren't really worth the cost anymore.

  20. Why Include an unneeded alternate wolverine head but not one for siryn. If you’re going to not give her an alternate head at least make the one she comes with a screaming one. So disappointing.

  25. Over on my own site (https://nearcompleteset.com/2021/12/07/top-10-new-character-wishlist-2021/) I did my 2021 top ten BRAND New character list for 2021 so I thought I asked everyone here what their list was. NOTE: They should be brand new characters that have never had a figure in the main line or TB classics. You can use character that have had MCU version, like Mantis, Yondu, or Melina, since I think many want their comic version. I also should note that when I made this list, I did it while believing that the rumors @JayC are true. He has rarely been wrong so far. Here is mine. 10. Spitfire - Time for Hasbro to give us the lead female hero for most of the Invaders run 09. Gladiator (Potter) - I always like this DD villain. 08. Namorita- Hasbro has given us all but 2 New Warriors so she jumped in the list 07. Marrow- She was a member of the X-men when I started reading and with Maggot coming, she has always had a place in my list 06. Moondragon - Drax’s daughter really needs to get a figure BEFORE they change her origins for the GOTG movie. On a side note, someone actually tried to convince me that they gave Mantis Heather's powers in the MCU, even though Heather was never an empath. 05. Swordsman - A classic Hawkeye villain and a much needed Avengers member 04. Ms. America - Yes, I am aware that she may be part of the Multiverse of Madness movie, but that will be a MCU character. I want the comic version. 03. Destiny -Mystique’s lover takes the third spot. She has always been a want for me because of her role in the Brotherhood. With her being a big part of the story above hopefully we will get her. 02. Justice - As many people know, Firestar was my number one most wanted characters for many, many years. Justice was always in third place. Now he is second. 01. Jim Hammond Human Torch - (Rant incoming) Okay, for my number one I just want to give you some numbers. Over the year Hasbro or Toybiz has been making ML or their classic line they have had over 11 Human Torches. Of them, half were fully flamed versions and of those, a few had no F4 symbol on their chest. All right, you got that? Okay so can anyone tell me, how the F*** have we not have gotten a Jim Hammond Human Torch?!! I mean how hard is it to give us one of those fully flame no symbol Human Torch and put on a Jim Hammond head on them? And don’t bother telling me I can just use one of those as a Jim Hammond. To me and many Marvel fans, Jim Hammond’s head has to have no facial features. That is what make in unique against Johnny. He is Marvel’s first superhero for f sake. (Rant end)

  26. So here goes. Marvel Comics Infinity Gauntlet Wave 1 Adam Warlock no baf piece. Comes with interchangeable infinity gauntlet hand and a pip the troll. 2 Eric Masterson Thor.

  27. That seems quick, but I guess that's the turnaround these days, I still remember the VHS and early DVD days when a movie would take like a year or 6 months to get a home video release, now they come, and they go anyways naysayers should check this movie out, you might be surprised 😉

  28. This thing is ridiculous. Not only does it look like a 90's Toybiz figure with some added articulation, but the guys at DS don't seem to understand that guys like Human Torch and Iceman are not clear. There are people underneath the flames and ice. They are simply covering their bodies with the material their bodies generate. Sure, there are some alternate versions of the characters where their powers evolved and their bodies turn to that material, but these ain't the versions of those characters. I swear, it's like there's three or four separate teams at DS/MS, all independent of each other and devoid of communication or data sharing. Some of them do some good, fairly accurate stuff like Beta Ray Bill, then some other group goes and does some porcelain torpedo like this. It's almost like the entire reason for this figure was to make that negator belt and ice slide and the figure was just a rushed through afterthought. If I could get those two items without the figure it'd be cool. Glad I'm not a MS fan cuz there's no consistency in quality, the detail between figures differs by vast degrees, there is zero to little scale consideration and altogether there seems to be even less R&D about who these characters actually are and how their powers are represented.

  30. Yeah these are the "graduation" costumes; if there's any plan to do them just please don't repeat that awful Toys R Us 5-pack from 2014. If they can't do a better job on Angel's wings after 10 years then don't bother.

  31. I agree 100% that the early bird for the HISS Tank didnt do much that it was the base product itself. The GIJoe Haslab proved people have no problem paying that much for a vehicle if its something they actually want. The biggest problem with this one is that A. Marvel and vehicles just don't go hand in hand like they do with G.I. Joe and B. They choose a vehicle that in general just didnt have that wide of an appeal. Even if the Ghost Rider name was really that big, everyone has their own favorite version of Ghost Rider. I think any vehicle for Marvel Legends would be a hard sell but there are certainly vehicles they could have tried to start with that likely would have been more popular than this. I get it was Ghost Rider's Anniversary but this when it boils down to it was not a smart pick for a Haslab.

  32. I think the Hasbro team knows that, as much as the Hellcharger was obviously a misfire, changing the “rules” midstream in order to get it funded would just backfire on future projects. Better to just ride it out and hopefully learn for the next one.

  33. No interest here either; certainly not at that price. But their decisions are just chaotic. Its a mixture of ineptitude, greed, and contradictions that make no sense. However the upside on this one is, fans can get it without paying that outrageous amount for the other two figures.

  34. Yeah in store purchases of these windowless packages are probably going to be something I stay away from, I will only be buying online from trusted retailers, I have already heard about so many horror stories with these figures, people buying them and figures just straight missing from the package, one person said he actually saw the brown cardboard that holds the figures in the box just torn and ripped in the toy isle, It is way to easy to swap and steal with these packages, and the brick and mortar retailers are not going to pay any more attention to detail then they did before they don't have the means to do so, employees will continue the way they do, they don't get payed enough to care, sad truth is the real reason behind these windowless boxes isn't the environment it's a money saving tactic, cost of oil is up, cost of plastic is up, I am already seeing these things happening in the food industry (where I work), packaging is getting minimized, I just say buy online or local shops rather then Walmarts and Targets with these figures, not much else one can do.

  36. ShartimusPrime takes a look at the new Marvel Legends 20th Anniversary Series Captain America from Hasbro. This figure is available for pre-order from our sponsor Big Bad Toy Store. Check out images for this figure below in our GALLERY and be sure to share your own thoughts about it in the COMMENTS SECTION.

  37. Theoretically, since this figure is going to be all white, it should be possible to swap his arms at the bicep swivel with those of either MCU Klaw or comic JJJ for the rolled sleeve look. That being said, it would be nice to get swappable arms with this one, though I doubt they'll do that. Likely we'll just get his batons and maybe an unmasked head. I actually was wondering about people's desire for an unmasked head with the full MK suit in the wave. To my knowledge, there's no indication that he'll ever appear in at least the full suit without the mask on (not sure about Mr. Knight), so is it more of just people wanting an Oscar Isaac head with the face printing? To that extent I totally agree, I'd love a Marc/Steven civilian figure to show up at some point.

  38. Tomorrow (2/21) Hasbro's Marvel Legends brand team will be returning with another live-stream which kicks off at 11am ET. So what might we be seeing. Well first I can tell you we will be getting the official reveal for that Avangers comic book based wave I first told you about back in September. This is the wave that will include figures of USAgent, Speedball, Iron Man, Thor, Madame Hydra, Quake and Blue Marvel. Hasbro today even revealed the packaging art for Blue Marvel which was done by David Nakayama and you can see below. Now thats really the only thing I can say for sure we will see tomorrow, but Hasbro's Ryan Ting posted this image of what he will have on display on his shelf during tomorrow's live-stream which may provide some clues as to what else will be shown. The first shelf on the left has Doctor Strange figures along with a Sleepwalker trading card which I am speculating is representing figures already out on shelves. The second top one to the right with the 3.75" Retro figures and the Dr. Strange Role-Play stuff also seems to represent items either out or about to come out. I suppose they might show us another wave of 3.75" Retro figures and there are rumors of role play items that includes a retail release of the tesseract and a metallic gold infinity gauntlet we might see at least one of tomorrow. There is also a rumor of a Reforged Mjolnir coming, but I would only expect to see that if Hasbro starts showing Thor Love and Thunder stuff tomorrow. Since Tamashii Nation revealed two figures for that movie earlier this week, that's a somewhat a possibility I suppose. Moving on to the second row, we see the first 3 Marvel Legends 20th Anniversary figures displayed on the shelf to the left. Hopefully that means we will see the next figure tomorrow which Hasbro has previously confirmed is Toad. The shelf on the right of the second row shows the new Spider-Man Retro Cardback figures which are also already hitting shelves. While there definitely more Spider-Man figures coming this year I think this may just be another case of showing stuff already out. Moving to the third row starting with the shelf on the left we see the X-Men Bonebreaker BAF as well as the Pulse Exclusive VHS X-Men Animated Series figures Hasbro already showed off. I wouldn't be surprised if Hasbro doesn't show the next figure slated for release in that X-Men Animated Series line tomorrow. I do see a trading card box on that shelf with Magneto, so maybe he is next in line??? The third row shelf on the right shows more already released Spider-Man Retro figures as well as the Comic based Iron Spider-Man which Hasbro previously showed facing off with an older Lizard figure. While Hasbro has yet to say, The Iron Spider will be part of the Spider-Man 60th Anniversary line which some if not all may come on Retro cardbacks. There is also rumors of a Walmart exclusive Retro Lizard coming in the 60th Anniversary line which I am thinking based on the Lizard placed here will be revealed tomorrow. Yesterday I also told you about a rumor of another Black Costume Spider-Man figure coming in the 60th Anniversary line. I supposed we might see that one as well but we will have to see. The bottom left shelf is possibly the most interesting to me. We see a little tiny Mojo on display. Earlier this month I told you how we should expect to see a new Marvel Legends Mega Deluxe Mojo released sometime this year. So perhaps that will get official revealed tomorrow. Also on this shelf are several Walgreens exclusive figures including the most recently announced one which is Jigsaw. I have a feeling the next Walgreens exclusive Villains figure will be revealed tomorrow. One final strange thing of note is the old Toy Biz Marvel Legends Hawkeye figure which came with a Skycycle turned sideways. While not something I have seen for myself and not my rumor, there have been others who have suggested we might be getting a new Hawkeye on Skycycle deluxe set from Hasbro. Whether this is a tease for that I guess we will have to wait and see. The bottom shelf on the right has more exclusive offerings from Walmart and ShopDisney. Whether this is meant as a tease for something or just random things placed there I do not know. I will say I wish Disney would start shipping those X-Force boxsets out to those like myself who pre-order them there when they were first announced. HasbroPulse who also carried it has shipped them but not Disney which is who the exclusive was supposed to belong to. Would be nice if the retailers that procure these exclusives would actually ship them. Anyway there is my breakdown of what we will and might see tomorrow. Of course whatever is shown you can expect complete coverage of it right here on MN.

  41. I hate the price increase. After buying Vulcan and Havok, until me and my friends see release. I am quitting Legends. Also, what logic did Hasbro go with by not giving us a screaming Siryn head. But use a screaming Siryn in her packaging art? And who asked for Wolverine with heated claws?

  42. They definitely are not worth it when they're being produced with error after error, and overpriced parts we can do without. They're not worth it when the company isn't respecting the fans, and giving us what we want. They're not worth it when the company is hell bent on sticking with "exclusive" markets, with proven poor performance, that just shut out that fans that want to give them money. They're not worth the frustration, the disappointment , or the time. And its sad, 'cause its a great line.

  44. This isn't going to peg warm as much as the Eternals, which was mostly because they are brand new and extremely unknown characters. Strange is a much bigger name than you are giving him credit for. Not to mention, they have Wong a highly requested character, America Chavez a brand-new character as well as a much improve Dr. Strange and Mordo. The only thing that might peg warm is the Astral form. The only people who think this will peg warm are those that still think that MCU doesn't sell as well as comic but as you can read in this very thread, there are hundreds of people who collect only MCU figures.
