  1. that magneto was never released and isn't the same as the previous one. The joints are different at the hips, knees, midsection, and elbows. Also, one is gritting his teeth and the other is yelling (mouth open). Neither are from the TB X-Men box set. There you have it folks I just found a VERY RARE find gather up your quarters, nickels and dimes for this one if you want this Magneto Congrats on the find. It's that exact prototype from the Fan Poll. Colours are a little different,And the pink in the mouth is either not there or hard to see,But it's him alright.
  2. As long as the fabric capes are of good quality,Poseable and made with the wire lining which BBJ mentioned,I'm all for it.
  3. Was the video review of Black Widow ever made? In SolidSnake's vid he said somebody would make a review.
  4. Yeah that's how it is. I've posted stuff first too, like on the Joes forums, and someone else well make a new thread and later end up on the "The Wire" a day or 2 after the story breaks. Don't sweat it. It's kinda like iphonehacks.com :) If we had the Facebook "Like" option,I'd select it.
  5. I'd doubt it. It was not announced at all so I'm guessing it is either an exclusive gift to Robert Downey himself or a prototype to go in Wave 2 of the IM 6" line.
  6. http://forums.marvelousnews.com/index.php?...&p=16513429 Already being discussed bud.
  7. I've bought every single figure in the Marvel Legends line that Toy Biz made (and most that Hasbro made), so sorry, you don't get to act like "those of us that have been dedicated to the line since the beginning" are some different class of people that all want the same things. I've been buying them since they first popped up on shelves, and there are probably a good dozen figures I'd like to see better versions of, or costume variations of existing characters I'd prefer over some of the "new characters" that were offered in that poll. We're also not talking about inconsequential cosmetic details, either...the Toy Biz Black Widow was crap from the ground up, not just a "bad headsculpt." But yes, I'd rather have a GOOD version of Black Widow than ANY version of Brother Voodoo or Bi-Beast or even the Hood. I don't give a hoot about those characters and likely never will, so I don't care about having them in my collection at all. And you can take your "customize it yourself" argument and shove it. Not everyone has the time, patience, talent, or MONEY to be a prolific customizer (gotta shell out to buy those paints, parts, tools, etc...), much less producing figures that are worth keeping. But hey, if you want me to make action figures for you, I'll be happy to charge you $50 for every simple headswap and crappy-paintjob figure I could come up with. Face it...you ended up being the minority. Life is hard. <Long winded bunch of crap snipped to spare everyone's intelligence.> Sorry you can't handle the fact that there are in fact people "Dedicated to this line since the beginning" that aren't clones of you. Your definition of "Dedication" (only wanting new characters) doesn't show up in the dictionary, I'm afraid. The only thing people need to "keep in mind when another poll comes up" is WHAT THEY WANT. Not what YOU want or what anyone else wants. For the record, I voted for Black Widow, Valkyrie, and Modern Havok (because I can't stand that classic Havok costume despite him being among my favorite characters). Whoever you voted for, you apparently lost. Now you try to pretend you're some sort of "superior fan" and act like ALL customizing is as simple as "boil and pop." Which is bullshit (and an insult to truly gifted customizers). But I don't really need your "help" for anything thanks. I got two out of the three figures I wanted, two Hasbro picks that I'll enjoy a great deal (Particularly Winter Soldier), and a third poll-winner that I won't mind having a "modern" version of. Meanwhile, sounds like all you got is a batch of sour grapes. Awww poor little guy sounds soo bitter. Not get what you wanted for Valentine's Day? You really do sound like you need my help. Remember these are toys, you shouldn't be so bitter about them. Customizing is really what ever you want to make out of it. It can be fun to make your own versions of characters or make new ones. the more you practice, just like anything, usually the better you get at it. You don't have to be truly gifted to do a boil n pop, for painting you need lots of patience. The truly impressive ones are the people that can take all kind of scraps and make something awesome out of them. I also got 2 of the figures I voted for so big whoopie. I will enjoy trading the Deadpool away and love the new Hulk for customizing that will be released. Black Widow, maybe I will turn her into someone else, not sure yet. All I have heard from you so far are insults and whining. In fact you whine like a 2 year old girl, trying to come off all tough and angry on the internet of all places. Yes you keep trying to flame me to no avail. No where do I have an elitist point of view on ANY figures or on my customizing or hobby of collecting. YOU pointed out how you have been collecting since the beginning. Who cares? I could care less how big or small your collection is. Do you care how big my collection is, because you shouldn't. MY OPINION is that re-dos are a waste. Deal with it. i am not gonna say sorry for the fact that you can't get over that other people see things differently then YOU do. So get the F*CK over yourself, you are not the toy fan choice poll police. Just like in politics, voting can get the rest of us stuck with a crappy candidate. Ok,Don't take this as such a bad comment,But please,Stop being such a tool. Some people just can't customize. They just can't. A number of reasons are involved. Please don't try and push the option on anybody.Your just rabbling on about BS. Black Widow looks amazing. I cannot wait to get her.
  8. That figure looks superb. Is it to be Mass Produced or exclusively made for Robert Downey Jr? I just can't see a figure that great in a normal line. Impossible!
  9. Yeah. Looks like the 5 inch Doom that was released in the Fantastic Four 2 movie line.
  10. He has a Ghost Rider Johnny unreleased proto up at the moment,And he had two early mock-ups of a Nick Fury and Ghost Rider intended for the Marvel Studio's line.
  11. Then all the power to you. I love Marvel Legends as much as the next guy,But it is just my opinion that spending that amount of money on a single figure to "Complete" ones collection is just a waste.
  12. I'll feel so bad for you if Hasbro re-releases her.(Which is doubtful,But we can still hope) In my opinion $2500 is just insane to spend on a single figure,No matter how rare.
