  1. What's the issue with it? I'm not sure if I'm familiar with what you are describing. What other figures have this feature?
  2. Is that Logan a... pretty boy? Something about the frowny face, maybe the lips. He doesn't look like a gruff old brawler.
  3. I share your concerns. It's too bad because the guys who design and plan the figures seem to really love what they are doing and are in some ways victims of extraneous circumstances. They are getting by marketing these toys to an older generation. I really don't know what kids these days are into, but I'm in my 40's: will I still be collecting action figures as a 50 year old? The line will end at some point, and that day will be hastened the struggles of the comic industry to attract readers. When today's kids are in the prime spending range, Hasbro will be selling manga figures.
  4. Yes! Forearm and Brainchild would be cool. Forearm works for Savage Land displays and MLF. Brainchild works if you want to go with Uncle Chris into weird pervert land.
  5. I feel your lament about passing stuff by nowadays. Maybe world circumstances will help our incomes catch up to the probably legitimate cost of our hobbies.
  6. I believe they have to be saving that Psylocke to anchor a box set or something. If they give us that Psylocke with a bunch of random X repaints that are in moderate demand, it might help move that product. I can't think of any reason for further delay given she is in such demand and the one guy in the video loves that era.
  7. Definitely, given that tall hair. I don't know if Wolfsbane's was quite that big. Nevertheless, if Feral is a fairly straight repaint, I won't be super upset. I'm happy with close enough on some of these.
  8. Good point. The only themed wave was a villains wave. It is kind of fun. A difference for me is that there are some iconic depictions alongside some random ones. Half of this wave is modern characters (as far as I know). I don't blame them for the selection, It just doesn't have the same appeal as a wave containing any of the remaining iconic character designs.
  9. That's a lot of stuff, and I really hope it pleases a lot of people. I'm probably only going to get Wolfsbane. I just hope the face looks better in real life. Lot's of cool variety and options. They are really trying to capitalize on the animated series stuff. They did the wrong Fantastic Four! I would probably get the 90's group. Cable looks weird with his X's so high on his suspenders. Otherwise, he looks very accurate to that era. The headsculpt reminds me of Ian Churchill's art on that title back in the day.
  10. What a random wave. Hopefully it sells well. I'm interested in Wolfsbane. Cable is tempting, but I have the TB and it's good enough. Money don't grow on trees, sadly. I imagine the X characters will sell enough for collectors. I'm not sure how Thor and Iron Man will do since they aren't very recognizable in that depiction. Were those from successful comic runs? That BAF will be fun to complete. I hope Wolfsbane's face isn't quite what is shown here. Room for improvement, I'll say.
  11. Outback Colossus and Psylocke Wolfsbane, Feral, Phoenix, Mimic Team X Wolverine and Sabertooth Reavers Donald Pierce and a proper Cole and Macon Roughhouse, Bloodstorm, Albert and Elsie Dee, Shiva, Silver Fox, Cylla, John Wraith Meteorite, Techno, Atlas, Jolt
  12. It really is hard to predict what will sell to both collectors and kids. The economy is not helping, too. It's taking me longer to raise funds to get some of the figures that I really want, and even that is cut back from my peak of buying everything. And that was a long time ago. Nostalgia sells to collectors. I'm not sure what sells outside of that market. I would think the big four Avengers would sell well, but maybe between economic factors and kids who grew up on the movies being in college now....
  13. I don’t know who you Trickshot or Blazing Skull, but they sound neat. It’s nice that it would be possible to give collectors some figures they’ve been waiting for, with little overhead. I think a line like that would do well. Iron Man as an anchor. Nice diversity between male/female and hero/villain.
  14. When I look at those two, and reflect on the original story, I think that would make for an excellent stand-alone movie. Like a Rogue One kind of thing. Flesh out the MCU without using it as a piece of a greater story. Make it like those old 90's buddy cop shows. "The only things they break more than the baddies' bones are each others' balls."
