  1. The early Hasbro Legends were way behind the Toy-Biz Legends in the area of articulation. They introduced that weird elbow and knee joint that severely limited movement. They still use it. That would be one area they should work to improve. I know there are problems with the double jointed elbow, particularly in female character figures. I'm sure they'll find a solution to this. Hasbro has really impressed me with the ankle joints of late. Blink is able to do some really dynamic poses with her teleportation ring because of the stiff but flexible ankle joint. The Patch Wolverine is another that I enjoy for this. Fingers are cool when they are executed well. I have a few figures whose fingers are inserted out of order. It works well with BAFs like Giant-Man, MODOK. The face-off Captain America works too, since he often gets posed pointed toward the battle. Do you have any figures in mind that need fingers? I really think Hasbro eliminated the need for articulated fingers by packing in multiple hands. That's an improvement over Toy-Biz to me.
  2. Thanks. I have no idea what is going on with this story, or any of the back-stories. I hope everyone enjoys it. It looks like they did some work to research some things.
  3. I see. I thought that looked like Mantis. So, is her son a Kree soldier? He kind of looks like one. Are they getting married? Is that Dormammu?
  4. What does the tagline mean? Who are the celestial Madonna and messiah?
  5. I didn’t get any figures, but I received some nice display stands.
  6. I like the idea of Nimrod and Box. But are those guys really BAF-size characters? Are you just accepting that Hasbro has reduced the size of the average BAFs now? That’s cool, just wondering. If Hasbro will ever do a full 12” figure, then Atlas should be it.
  7. Bastion could be cool. I thought of him for the next 3-in-1 pack. Didn’t some of his minions look like him? Exodus combines significance in the lore, an interesting enough look for young collectors, and has been long in demand. He’s a good option. Would it be late New Mutants Rictor in green and white, or the later X-Force like his 90’s Toybiz figure? I like the possibility of getting some Marauders since Scalphunter is active in the comics. Arclight could be cool. Black Tom could work as a villain. He has history with the X-Men and X-Force. I’ve just been reading through the Omega Red stories from X-Men volume 2 featuring Maverick and had almost all of his solo series. He’d look great with all the recent Jim Lee era X-Men they’ve lately provided. Is it supposed to be a Deadpool wave or X-Force wave? I can’t remember. Could they do first appearance Storm? We already have Warpath and Sunspot, right? GIdeon is a major X-Force foe. Could they possibly do anyone from MLF? Forearm, Reaper, Wildside? Could we see Wolfsbane? Is there another Deadpool? I’m surprised we haven’t heard yet.
  8. Why does Hasbro think those elbows are any good? Are double-jointed elbows on a female figure that hard to do? Maybe they don't age well?
  9. I think some alternate heads would be really cool. I’m not sure if every figure’s head is equally swappable, so that’s the only possible downside. I’d really like a couple of different heads for Outback Dazzler. The one they made is cool, but not my fave. Same with Blink. Dazzler’s effects are OK, but she pointed her fingers like a gun in those days. just some thoughts.
  10. I recently won an Amazon gift card at work which enabled me to pick up a few of the recently released X-Men figures. Of them, my favorites right now are retro Dazzler, Wolverine, and Silver Samurai. They are pretty awesome figures. At first I didn't really appreciate Wolverine or Samurai but they are growing on me. I like the size of SS. Patch's claws are fantastic. This is the first modern Wolverine figure I've owned. That is a heck of an engineering upgrade over the soft ones of the past. I'm really enjoying the some of the engineering improvements Hasbro has made, that I am seeing in these figures. The ankle joints are very nice. They've exceeded my expectations and I'm really enjoying them. I don't know if I would use the word "thankful", but I really appreciate the engineering that has gone into them, and they are great new figures.
  11. You're probably right. I was thinking different paint jobs would be enough. I was thinking of this yesterday. Did he turn blue, then back to normal, then back to blue? When he starts with X-Factor he's normal, then turns blue and never goes back, but he was blue with the Avengers, and that was before X-Factor, right?
  12. Original X-Factor could also double as an original X-Men. I've never seen it, but my understanding is that the original X-Men boxset wasn't very good. It's at least been a couple of years since it's release now, right? I would think they'd be a shoe-in for sales. They could even do some of the variant costumes worn by the X-Factor team. Or how about X-Factor in their "mutant hunting" overalls? Probably too obscure.
