  1. Hey, my fellow Plastic Addicts. Last week I asked people on my social media account if they would like me to start looking at characters that have yet to be made into a Marvel Legends. My readers were overwhelmingly in favor of this idea with only one guy against. (Yeah, you know who you are.) So, coming this Wednesday (fingers crossed), we will begin a new feature on this site that I like to call "Missing Legends". To explain what this will be like. For the most part it will be nearly the same as a normal NCS, Profile on top with a brief history of the character underneath. However, once you get to the area that usually has the figures, I will instead go into how they could be made, like suggesting which body they should use, as well as displaying all the costumes they can use for the figure. You will be able to find all the characters we have done in the menu under the NCS -> Characters -> Missing Legends. I will be starting with Jim Hammond's Human Torch BUT if you have a character, you want me to look at, please head over to this page -Missing Legends Requests. Please follow the rules on that page and have fun.
  2. Hey, my fellow Plastic Addicts. Today we start our look at the Squadron Supreme 2-pack. You may think that this would be easy but it's not. Not Superman rip-off, which is primarily on the more recent Squadron Supreme of America version, which being the Hyperion (Mephisto’s Simulacrum) version. The previous one we got was based on Earth-S version. Thanks to that, we also have a new Hyperion (Multiverse) on the alternate's page. No, the problem lies with the other figure, the Green Lantern rip-off, Dr. Spectrum. In the prime universe alone, there have been six characters that have used the Power Prism, including the Avenger's Wasp. Thankfully including Wasp, three have been woman so you obviously can't use the figure for that. That make at least three characters from Prime universe that have used the Prism AND this exact suit. BUT!! I'm not going to talk about those versions today. Instead, we are going to jump over to Earth-S and talk about the Dr. Spectrum (Earth-S) version of the character, to join with his Squadron teammate. Yes, I normally don't do Alternate version when they have a Prime version but given that we got the Hyperion Earth-S version of the character, I decided to include him here. This also allowed me to add Dr. Spectrum (Multiverse) to the alternate page. (This will be updated as I add the other three.) Next time we will look at the Obatu, Roberts and the SS of America version of the character.
  3. No reveal this (honestly thank god) but there will be something next week. (Yes presume it's Ant-man) - https://twitter.com/DanYunIsTrying/status/1620104560709885953?s=20&t=voZM-SnokgL0SDMkN2K7-g
  4. you say that but we get characters like Rock Python, Orb, Frog Man and many many more who as way more obscure then the Squadron. Zarda can easily be slotted into an Avengers wave, who any of the movie tie-in beyond Spider-man.
  5. while Dr. Spectrum can be used for over half a dozen character (trust me I research it intensively), Hyperion is based on the Squadron Supreme of America version. I can't find any other that uses a red mask like him.
  6. it's very likely that this was made and designed before switching over. Alot of figure get design long ago but are pushed back for various reasons.
  7. Another Must get for me. don't care that Spectrum is on the bucky cap mold. Need that figure.
  8. looking at the rumor listings and barring, Like Jayc said, it is another store exclusive we have the following as a possibility: Shuma Gorath, unlikely as they might save that for SDCC this year. Spider-Slayer set - possibly hinting at the Target mentioned. Doc Ock - likely but they would probably wait for the wave to be revealed alongside it. SPDR and Peni I didn't include the Spider-verse figure (Cyborg Spider-woman) because it's still too early for them and any of the Avengers lot because they usually wait until a major livestream or event before reveal anniversary lines. Again all of these could just be wrong and it could be something new. That was just the Spider-man, due to Sony owning the design rights for the costume. The last 2 reveal have been proper prices, the F4 kids and Yondu.
  9. Another reveal tomorrow and given that he asked us what deluxe we would like to see, we can assume it's a deluxe figure.
  10. You do know it's not Dwight and his team that decides if something should be exclusive or not, right? It people much higher up than them.
  11. it would be weird if she was Misty Knight. Misty was in the Luke Cage series and if they want to keep the same actor for the likes of DD and Kingpin, wouldn't it make more sense to keep the same actor for the rest?
  12. well, according to recent comic, he is Mary Poppins descendant. LOL I wonder if they will ever make the 616 version?
  13. Hey, my fellow Plastic Addicts. As you may know, Hasbro has announced that they will be releasing a comic book version of the original Guardians of the Galaxy member, the archer Yondu (31st Century), so I did a NCS for him. Now Hasbro has to make Martinex as a single figure (as either part of a GOTG wave or Avengers wave) as well as a Charlie-27 as a BAF. Starhawk, Nikki and Aleta can wait but we need the founding members of the 31st century's Avengers. This allowed me to create a Yondu (Multiverse) page for the alternates. Maybe we can get his ancestor the 616 version as well. I also did another Iron Man pilot who I think should get a proper figure soon, Force. If you are wondering why I made a NCS of him, he has worn the Iron man armor a number of times, particularly when he was part of Rhodey's Iron Legion. But yes Classic Force is needed for our collections. Unless something else is revealed by next Monday, next time we will look at the white supremist Captain America, the Grand Director as well as the only villainous Green Goblin not to be part of the Osborn family, Bart Hamilton.
  14. as long as we get Martinex and Charliee we complete the original team. Everybody else were recruited after that. Yes even Starhawk.
  15. if you go over to this thread you will find that possible answer to that. https://marvelousnews.com/252-32410
  16. Instant buy. Now do a single Martinex (probably just a repaint Iceman) and a Charlie BAF. Starhawk and Aleta can wait but give us the original team.
  17. given the wording, it looks to be a single reveal.
  18. because they can't. Sony only allowed Marvel to use the Spider-man if they could make those movies. If Marvel had the license, they wouldn't make Morbius or Kraven true but they would use them as villains in Spider-man movies and Morbius could easily be a guess star in Blade, leading up to a nIghtstalker or midnight son.
  19. Hey, my fellow Plastic Addicts. First, I would like to thank all the people who sent their well wishes last week. But before we move onto the NCS, I just have a quick rumor update. With less than a month before the movie release we still haven't gotten the reveal of the wave for the Ant-man and the Wasp: Quantumania. This is most likely due to the movie being brought forward nearly half a year, making the preparation time for this wave a lot shorter. Don't forget, it was supposed to be the Marvels next. However, thanks to JayC (see here) we now MAY known when it will be revealed, probably the first week of February. As it says in the link above, this may not be the actual date for these, but I just thought I give you the heads up. Now onto the NCS, starting with the brainiac daughter of Sue Storm and Reed Richards, Valeria Richards, aka Brainstorm. (Yes, that's her actual codename). I love that Hasbro is completing the family. All we really need is Alicia Masters Grimm and we will have the full family. We also have an Iron Man replacement with Eddie March, who is actually the first black person to wear the Iron Man armor, years before Rhodey was even introduced. Like Happy, Eddie also became the Freak so that allowed me to make a Freaks alternate page. I also made a NCS for Captain Marvel (Khn’Nr). Yes, I usually don't make a page for the forms that Skrulls take but given that he had a rather long tenure as Mar-Vell and never really changed back into his Skrull form, I am adding him.
