  1. These guys have been made since 2019, with the exception that Black Tom and Nimrod are slightly different. How have your lists been impacted? Apocalypse (AoA) Black Tom (white shirt) Cyclops (AoA) Dark Beast Iceman (AoA) Jean Grey (AoA) Lady Deathstrike Magneto (AoA) Maverick Nimrod (fat, round version) Rogue (AoA) Sugar Man Sunspot (red and blue X-Force) Warlock Warpath My NEW list: Bonebreaker (BAF) Exodus Jean Grey (Marvel Girl X-Factor green) Marrow (ugly version) Morph (XTAS)
  2. That’s a good question. I didn’t really think about it too much. I might have been cleaned imagining his XTAS look. He kind of looked like a zombie in the comics. Did the cartoon look appear in the comics at all?
  3. 60’s - Mimic 60’s - Changeling 70’s - Erik the Red 70’s - Proteus 80’s - Outback Psylocke 80’s - X-Factor Marvel Girl 90’s - BAF Forearm This is a really random list and there are certainly some duds on there. We already have Archangel, Iceman, and Cyclops from the X-Factor days. I would like to see them start on the Outback team. I don’t know. I’d by them all. Great idea for a thread. Thanks!
  4. I agree with your take about the X-Men being an analogue for the civil rights movement. It worked without being too heavy handed. I don't think anyone is arguing that Marvel should write according to the the worldview of the Klan, but they also don't need to go the route of Ibram Kendi. They of course can, but much has been made of the seeming equation of Jordan Peterson and the Red Skull. That could be considered an abusive ad hominem that is not fairly representing a particular position. It's annoying, but not worth fighting about on a message board where no problems can be fixed.
  5. Yeah, I think it could be a great service to allow some diversity of thought. It's up to them, and maybe those who want to see other opinions represented need to start their own comics. I certainly don't want to shoe-horn overt Christian messaging into Dr. Strange since the two would be pretty contrary to each other. I don't think the Black Panther should be forced to go full MAGA. If Nightcrawler wanted to fight Kermit Gosnell, that seems like a legitimate story that would flow naturally from the character's story. Do you know what the issue of Tales of Suspense that was? What were
  6. I hear you about the progressive stuff being pushed in comics. It's sad to think that characters I used to enjoy are being used in ways I don't like. It's also sad to see them used as abusive ad hominem arguments against my political or moral positions. But, Marvel can do what they want. If intellectual honesty is a virtue, they should allow alternative ideas to be fairly presented, especially those that stand the test of time and reason. They are making money and receiving positive publicity right now, and they would receive negative publicity if they did otherwise, so why bother. W
  7. I'm excited about the AoA wave 2. I hope this one can sell well enough to pressure them to attempt a third. Magneto and Rogue are perfect. Iceman actually appeared in issue 4 of Astonishing X-Men so we can complete the last page. Cyclops will go great with Weapon X and Jean. Hopefully Shadowcat looks as cool as possible; pretty much guarantees Colossus. Legion is the only one that belongs in a different wave. How is he going to look? In the run up to AoA he was in a hospital gown or something. Very excited. Hopefully they pack in a new head for Blink.
  8. I never understood why double-jointed elbows were considered a problem considering Toybiz did them. I'm sure there are some with loose joints, but I have multiple TB female figures that hold their poses just fine. Maybe I don't manipulate them enough. My floppiest figure is the first tiger stripe Wolverine Hasbro did for the Red Hulk wave. He collapses fairly regularly. The TB brown costume Wolverine is the same mold and stands much better. Maybe the real problem is in the plastics used. Quality and cost are always in competition. I think double-jointed elbows are pretty much essent
  9. Yeah, I got a Citizen V with a bent arm. It doesn't look terrible, but I'm nervous about trying too hard to fix it. A similar problem I've had is stiff or stuck joints. I have a Caliban shoulder that has to stick out strait all the time. On another figure the ankle joints are so tight the poseability is limited. Not too serious, but unfortunate.
  10. I don't have any gripes, necessarily, but if I could change anything it would be the price. I'm happy with the product. I guess I could say that I wish they would never release a BAF wave with a figure or two in it that I don't care about.
  11. Cyclops, Jean, and Rogue are OK. I don't know why Emma always needs to dress so provocatively. Her costume in Generation X wasn't frumpy. The others are over the top. Fun experiments in fashion.
  12. Wow. Not a lot of styles I liked for Quicksilver. I went with Brotherhood. I don't recognize that X-Factor 1 uniform. When did he wear that? Honestly tying into another thread, I think the AoA look would be preferred over some of these more modern ones.
