  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. Great news. Thanks. She's my most wanted of the new 2 Packs.
  3. 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.
  4. Was the video review of Black Widow ever made? In SolidSnake's vid he said somebody would make a review.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. http://forums.marvelousnews.com/index.php?...&p=16513429 Already being discussed bud.
  8. 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.
  9. 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!
  10. Yeah. Looks like the 5 inch Doom that was released in the Fantastic Four 2 movie line.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. It supposedly got cut so it's sculpt could be used for War Bird in the Wal*Mart wave.
  15. FA Storm, Updated Phoenix (Like the SDCC Proto but with White,Red AND Green variants),Jim Lee Jean Grey and Jim Lee Rogue (Updated).
  16. Sounds pretty logical.If it is this way don't beat of the guy for making a mistake. As you can see from another of his listings,Shipping IS $6.95,So yeah,A mistake.
  17. The XMC 3 Colossus has a lighter paintjob on the costume,Looks more silver than the previous,New Knee pads,A new neck joint (As oppsed to the BJ Neck the ML5 had) and afew minor differences in the overall sculpt. I like the XMC Colossus,As it is very similar to his AXM costume,Rather than the ML5,Which sports the Giant Size-esque version.
  18. and that doesnt change the fact that what you did was uncalled for. now does it? free will means you have a choice, do whats right, or the opposite. guess which one you chose. thats why we have good manners man. just because you can, doesnt mean that you should do it. im merely saying, bad things, happen everyday, BUT they shouldnt be happening in the 1st place, specially if you can choose not to do wrong things. now if you cant get that in to your pretty little head, then thats too bad. thats too bad. now, are you going to say anything about the petition or are you still going to defend your spiteful little mouth? Now you're beginning to insult? Oh what fun this shall be! I honestly do not care if what I said was uncalled for to you,But frankly,Other members agreed with it,So it can't have been as bad as you're implying it to be.You've blown this whole thing out of proportion.Face it.On these forums,It is insult gallore.Either accept it or deal with it silently,As nobody is going to care if it is in your thread or not.Again,Everybody has the free will to post whatever they want where they want,Negative or not,And they have the right to #$#@# about it too.If you're trying to make me feel bad about what I've said,You're shooting in the dark,Because I have no remorse for a simple post that didn't need to be turned into this. oh so your still defending your spite post eh? ok then. if you dont care, then why are YOU still talking to me? i think you do care. you want to convince yourself that what you did is right. insult? where did i insult you? i dindt insult you at all. of course you have no remorse, because you dont care if what you do is right at all. wrong or right it doesnt amtter does it? as far as i can tell anyway. oh, and i didnt start this, if your going to read my 3rd post, youll see that i was MERELY asking why are MU fans freaks? its a simple question really. Everybody else answered your questions,So I really do not have anything more to add to what they already said,So I had my input,Which you obviously didn't like.By the way, "your spiteful little mouth is a very strong insult.You're still blowing the whole comment out of proportion,And making this whole thing ridiculous.I called a select few freaks for trying to make me switch to MU.It is a simple matter really.It wasn't an over the top insult at all,So stop making it out to be.My post was spiteful,As it was intended to be.If you cannot deal with the fact it was spiteful,Fine.I'm done.You just can't get anywhere with your bizarre beliefs and theories of what is right and wrong,And what we can and cannot do.Free Forum.Free Posts.Free Say.

  20. I'm afriad everybody has a right to post whatever they want in anybody's thread.Nobody has control over them.It's called free will,And called a Public Forum.The other collectors did not "Swoop" to my rescue,It is merely the fact that they agree with my view.Don't like what I said.Fine.But there was still no need to make it into a big thing,Because it really wasn't.If it had been,Others would have got offended,But appears to only be you.If you are comparing crime to my comment,You need to wake up and smell the coffee.
  21. I wouldn't expect you to understand,Seeing as you are only fairly new,But there are certain people on these boards who tell others to move on,Which I don't think is right at all.You've clearly not seen how "Free" we are to discuss Marvel Legends on the Marvel Legends board,So honestly,You cannot comment on something you've not even experienced yet.They HAVE tried to push it down our throats unfortunately,And done it in this kind of thread every time there has been one.My original post was highlighting it is only a matter of time before it happens,But since this has all errupted,I suppose they've been scared away.Marvel Legends fans are and should be the most important group on the Hasbro toy making radar,Since it has been perhaps THE most popular Action Figure line since 2000,And has paved the way for numerous lines-Even DCUC.It has been a big kick in the side to us that Hasbro have basically scrapped the line and started concentrating on itsy bitsy figures,Making all the Marvel Legends now "Exclusives". Go Legends! but grog, YOU ARE FREE to discuss. no one is saying that you CANT discuss ML or any topic regarding ML in this forum is there? they are merely saying that you have to move on, no one said stop talking about ML period. theyre expressing their opinions in an annoying way yes, ill give you that, but no one is stopping you from taking about MLs. and no, i dont understand,but not because im new in the toy collecting hobby, which im not, maybe im not a hardcore ML collector but i do collect toys. 80's/25th anniv joes, macfarlane toys, dragon ball, street fighter, ML/MU etc. i dont understand the hate generating bettween marvel collectors just because they collect diffrent lines. you do know about the current console war dont you? you know how pathetic it is when "xbots" will bash ps3 "fanboys" and vice versa because they have different consoles? its kinda whats happening here. its not cool. not cool at all. have you heard ps2 owners bashing sony for making the ps3 just after 5 years of releasing the ps2? yeah, its kinda whats happening. kinda, but i hope you get the point. finally, "My original post was highlighting it is only a matter of time before it happens,But since this has all errupted,I suppose they've been scared away." so, they havent done anything YET in this thread right? so guess who fired the first bullet in this battle my friend. clue, its not them. maybe they are not scared, maybe they just dont care. if youre going to bash them, ok, go ahead, i still think its childish though, but do it in another thread, like a thread cleverly titled ML VS MU perhaps, but not in this thread, this is not a spite thread, nor a VS thread. thanks man.

Re-quoted because everything you've just said can be counter-acted with this.And let me remind you,My post could have been left exacly as it was,a spiteful joke that nearly everybody in this forum understands about the MU Fans ,But who has to throw the first conflictive post? Clue,It was not me my friend :) and those bolded words can be countered with this= the fact of the matter is, they havent done anything like that in THIS THREAD, if you want to spite someone do it in another thread, NOT HERE. it COULD be taken as a joke, BUT it COULD also be taken as an attack. spiteful joke is still an attack made to be funny, but ITS STILL AN ATTACK TOWARDS OTHER COLLECTORS. Woah there,Calm it on down with the capital letters.It was a spiteful attack made towards a small number of collectors who deserve it,And honestly,It didn't need to be brought into the light you've brought it into at all.You've single handedly created all of this yourself.If you cannot handle the fact collectors take hits at other collectors on these boards,You're best not to be here at all,Because it happens nearly every day.
