  1. These are cool as heck! I'd love to see photos of them with figures (preferably Marvel U for my part). Can you give us an idea of what your recipe was?

    i think they're just bases from ML painted, because the Hand is definately from Gambit


    Yup, those are just the original bases re-painted in a comic-accurate purple. The originals were in those weird red-and-gold colors, as if the X-Men had just defeated Iron Man.


    The re-paint is very nice, especially on the head, but the customizer should probably specify what exactly they did so people aren't misled.

  2. just because they have them in their system, doesnt mean they have them in their posession. when i look them up it tells me there are none in the store, none in any store within 100 miles of me, none on order, none in transit, and none in the wharehouse. Them having them in the system means they anticipate or anticipated getting them at some point and time.

    So you're saying the store that's 101 miles from you has a whole stockroom full, right?


  3. i dont have the ml one so i was wondering

    is it really worth buying the sm classics one? is the fig too small? is still bigger than mls?

    It's definitely not as enormous as the ML6 Juggernaut, but considering the ML version will run you $30 or more, the new SMC at $11 is definitely worth it. It's a nice figure with a good sculpt even if it is a little undersized. He's still much bigger than Spider-Man, though. In fact, there's a thread with side-by-side photos of all the latest SMC figures here somewhere.


    It seems counterproductive to refuse to buy this one because it's not the ML version. Then you end up with neither. Even if you do someday acquire ML Juggernaut, there's nothing wrong with having two different versions of the same character. I'm sure most of us here have multiple Hulks, Captain Americas, Wolverines, Fantastic Four members, etc.

  4. come on Hasbro listen to us for once ...icon9.gif

    Well, it's out of Hasbro's hands now. Walmart owns the product. I'm not sure if they've got them all in a warehouse somewhere or what, but they're the ones who've shown absolutely no concern for releasing this wave in the States.


    I realize it's a store exclusive and all, but you'd think Hasbro would at least point out to Walmart that this is making Hasbro look bad, and it's dicking over their longtime fans.

  5. Whatever you do, don't order the Nemesis figs from ToyGlobe.com!!!


    I ordered a set from them over a week ago and they have not even processed my order yet, let alone shipped it. I received an order # when I placed the order, but I haven't received any sort of communication from them since.


    Even when I e-mailed them to ask about my order, 2 days ago, I never received a response.


    Also, I've repeatedly tried calling their so-called "customer service" number... it sends me to voice mail, then a message says that the "voice mailbox for Toyglobe.com is full... please hang up."


    PLEASE HANG UP! Wow! that is some awesome customer service!!!


    Now, my problem is, I don't know what to do. I would buy these from someone else, except I can't get ahold of anyone at TG.com to find out if they ever plan to fulfill my order! So, right now I feel like I'm sort of floating in online shopping limbo hell.


    Anyone got any suggestions on what I should do next?

    I'm assuming you paid online via credit card. Open a dispute with your credit-card company. You'll get a temporary credit back while they investigate. If indeed ToyGlobe hasn't done squat, the sale will get canceled and the credit will become permanent. Same thing if you paid with PayPal.


    Just make sure that you're still within your time limit to dispuate a charge. I think PayPal is only like 30 or 60 days.

  6. I'll be sure to insure and get a tracking number, just to make sure this isn't one final attempt to screw me over. (Wow, I sound jaded)

    You're not jaded at all. In fact, this brings back bad memories. A couple years ago I won a First Appearance Iron Man, and the auction photo showed it with the mask on. Turns out it was because the face was missing some paint.


    I opened a dispute, and the seller agreed to take it back. So I send it back to him, and he pretends not to have gotten it until I catch him by e-mailing a scan of the delivery confirmation. Then he simply stops responding to e-mails and never refunds me. And of course, while I was trying to be all nice and reasonable, the time for the dispute ran out. So I just ended up getting screwed.


    Now I waste no time opening disputes. Too many sellers are complete frauds. But I'm glad your situation is on its way to getting all worked out.

  7. I'd really like to be civil about this, but it's basically going to come down to "take the figure and give me back my money." As much as I've wanted this figure since I started collecting in 2002 or 2003, I'd prefer to have one that I'm not going to look at every day and see the faults.

    Unfortunately, you don't have the luxury of being civil for too long. eBay doesn't give you much time to open a dispute or leave feedback--only 60 days. If he hasn't e-mailed you back in the next few days, open an "Item Not as Described" dispute through eBay, and open a dispute through PayPal if you can. (It's been a while, but PayPal still does its own disputes, right?)


    Negative feedback is nice and all, but it won't get you your money back. Make sure when you open the dispute that you properly describe this as FRAUD, because that's what it is.


    Also, I'm sure you already know this, but just in case, you can check out Stealth Iron Man in this site's Database to compare it to yours.

  8. :dry: Ok, Ok. I caved. I just bought these off of ebay (actually cheaper than cmdstore and toyglobe). I waited too long for this wave and since it was my birthday present, I figured that with gas and all, $18.74 each and $149.90 for all 8 that that was a good deal. Am I stretching it? I usually go to great lengths to complete my collection even going more that 20 miles away so I paid $6.98 more for each figure shipped. Enough justifying my decision. You decide, good or bad decision? :wink:


    Well, it's a little higher than one would hope, but you'll always pay a premium to get an entire set and not have to worry about it any further. There's a price to be paid for peace of mind, as oposed to constantly driving around to your local Wal-Marts hoping to find all of them.


    And after experiencing the enormous cock-up that was the Ares wave, we now know there's no guarantee you'll see all of these figures on pegs. You wouldn't want to kick yourself later when you're paying $25 plus shipping for a Nova or whatever.

  9. Since there are many Deadpool & Gambit fans here, I thought I'd let everyone know that they just showed up at HTS this afternoon. shipping 3/9.


    I can't get over how big DP's sai is!


    Actually, everyone's up now--Gambit, Deadpool, Maverick, Weapon X Wolverine, etc.


    I got all of 'em except Sabertooth. And soon MU series 2 will be out, and then there's the new Spider-Man classics, and the Nemesis wave...ugh, this is going to get expensive. I sure miss the days when HTS had coupons for free shipping or 20% off.

  10. Guys, you can check out some photos on this person's website:



    The Hulkbusters in that set are awesome, much better than the regular Hulkbuster set. They could pass for Cobra soldiers, SHIELD agents or whatever you want.


    Unfortunately, the set comes with a lousy movie Hulk figure and costs $25. My local Toys R Us still has a bunch of them, so I'm checking periodically to see if they're on clearance.

  11. I actually welcome a different scale for battlescenes, (i do stopmotion with ML, and the Icons lines) so having a smaller scale to do cityshots is awesome and def. welcome.


    Very cool...you should post links to your videos if they're online. I'd love to see them. I've always wanted to try stop-motion because I sculpt for a hobby, but I don't have the foggiest what kind of camera or software to use.


  12. i honestly think they dont want the 2 different lines competing with each other.


    Why spend 8-9 dollars on a 3.75 inch figure when you can pay roughly 2 dollars more and get a 6 inch figure, with BAF option?

    Heh...In the ToyBiz days, I used to scoff at Star Wars collectors who were paying $6-7 (at the time) for a little 3-3/4" figure when we ML collectors could get a big 6" figure AND a BAF piece AND a comic for only two dollars more. Now that seems like forever ago.


    they are trying to capitalize on the profitability and interchanging between MU, Wolverine Origins and Joe.

    Not to mention Star Wars. It's both smart and sensible. If you're Hasbro, why not get all your major action-figure properties into the same scale? Little kids don't really differentiate between a "G.I. Joe universe" or a "Marvel Universe." They have everyone fight everyone. And for the adult collector, it creates some pretty interesting display/dioarama possibilities (Storm Shadow vs. Daredevil? Darth Vader vs. Silver Surfer?)


    I think thats why they delayed the Nemesis wave a bit to release now, in order to show some good faith, hoping us die hard ML's will also support their new endeavors...

    maybe, but all the delays would seem to have the opposite effect.



    ...They just want us to be forced to get MU. and sadly i will.


    Job well done Falcon

    I'm really looking forward to Marvel Universe. I don't see a problem with "starting over"...many of us collected ToyBiz 5" figures, then started over with MLs, then started over again with Icons, Heroclix, Mighty Muggs, etc. If someone makes cool figures of my favorite characters in a different scale, I'll keep buying them. I care less about a particular line or scale than I do about whether it's a well-made figure of a character I like.



  13. Thanks for putting the list together, Tarot. I couldn't tell who some of those characters were.


    I wish Hasbro weren't mixing A-list characters in. Storm, Wonder-Man and several others on this list are going to be made sooner or late (and likely sooner), whereas most of the rest of 'em will never see plastic. Fan's Choice poills should really be limited to obscure or cult characters who probably wouldn't be made otherwise.


    Having said that, I'd much rather have bad guys, so my top choices would be:


    1. Tiger Shark

    2. Amazing Bag Man (how could I resist?)

    3. Dormammu

    4. Drax the Destroyer (only if it's the classic version)

    5. Grim Reaper

    6. Constricter

    7. Baron Strucker

    8. Batroc

    9. Hellfire Club Soldier

    10. Firelord


    Honorable mention:

    Archangel, Mystique, Winter Soldier, Spot, Blizzard


    I will continue to hold out hope that High Evolutionary, MODOK and Arnim Zola will eventually take their rightful place among the rest of the Marvel Universe figures.

  14. http://i.marvelousnews.com/g/index.php?mod...00&start=60


    is that supposed to be a hydra soldier


    its sick but not like accurate


    these all look amazing

    im like obsessed with MU now

    I didn't even see that photo the first time around...that Hydra soldier is pretty bad-ass. Wonder if it's a repainted Firefly or something? Also, if you look in the background, you can see a red Hand ninja! Since it appears to be the same figure as the white ninja up front, I'm guessing the white one is a Hand ninja, too (though I don't recall them ever wearing white).

  15. I saw this the other day and ordered thing and Mr. Fantastic and Forge and Wolverine.


    Just in case you didn't already know, the Thing and Mr. Fantastic are straight re-packs of the Ronan series figures, as will be the upcoming Johnny/Sue Storm two-pack. If you already have those, you don't need the two-packs.


    Mr. Fantastic is a whole different figure and the thing's shorts are colored different as well.

    Sorry, it's obviously not the "super-stretch" Ronan version of Mr. Fantastic. I had meant to write that it's a re-pack of the boxed-set version. Of course, I double-checked and now see that a re-paint, not a straight re-pack (from blue/white costume to blue/black), so my bad on that.


    The previous blue/black version (from ML5) had kind of a goofy head, so I guess it makes sense to buy this one if you're looking for a better version to fill out the team. I would get that 2-pack myself, but I'm not a big fan of the Thing's sculpt regardless of what shorts he's wearing.
