  1. That is awesome. Just really cool. That gun is neat. One of the better cartoon homage figures.
  2. That's great. A Deadpool variant worth the plastic. Good work!
  3. Oh, for sure. Age of Apocalypse Sabertooth for example. I am very happy when the Toybiz version is “good enough” to help me save money, though.
  4. I don’t get the hate for ball joints. I remember as a kid collecting the five inch figures, ball joints were the best. I will grant that not all of the Toybiz figures had perfectly proportioned shoulder or hip ball joints, but neither were they all terrible. Hasbro has definitely made some improvements, though. No hate for the current products.
  5. Sweet. You have a lot of older figures. It’s fun to compare the 90’s Toy Biz figures to the new ones. They had some good figures, and so many.
  6. Are you going to update that with the new Firestar? Checking out the background... sweet Ghostbusters building. You've got an older collection. Do you have a scene set up in front of the fire station? I see the Toybiz Iceman in front.
  7. Yeah, I expected my "hot-take" to be not-so-hot after all. Hasbro has made a lot of new figures, and they can still redo some of the Toy-Biz figures. There are some of their own figures from the early days that need improvement. I mostly wonder what will happen to the industry after my generation calls it quits. We were so into toys in a way that kids today... are into TikTok? My new hot-take: Hasbro will pivot to creating figures of TikTok stars of yesterday and today!
  8. In a few years Hasbro Legends will be primarily related to cinema rather than directly to the comics. I think we are in a moment in which people who grew up with action figures as kids are the primary purchasers: not kids, not present day comic readers. When the next generation pops up they will be rooted in Netflix and Marvel studios.
  9. Wow. I wouldn't have guessed seven feet. Good for you that you can enjoy it. Getting a long desired figure is the best.
  10. That's what I thought, too. I'm not sure if it's been done before, but it's a neat idea. I thought it looked a little like the super-adaptoid. ... and apparently it is. Neat idea.
  11. I really liked Ed McGuinness when he started the Deadpool series. Fun, cartoony style. Who is the green guy in the background?
  12. I don't know much about this guy. I think I read a couple of X-Men comics with him. Was he always just black and white? I thought there was some purple or blue, or something.
  13. He looks fun. I like these big figures. The only thing I don't like is the single jointed elbows. Are double-joints that bad on big figures? I like the alternate head and hands.
  14. He looks like a cool figure. Seems accurate to what I recall. My only contact with this character was a trading card. Still nice obscure offering. Probably makes a lot of people happy.
  15. I knew Magneto should have more read on him. I didn't realize he had too much. Iceman does look too blue. It is a miss. I still think it looks cool.
  16. I see. Too bad. I really like that version. It looks like artists differed on his boot color, some yellow some blue/black. They definitely should be boots, though. Oh well. They had to cut costs somewhere. Rictor's hair is really well done. I had the 90's version as a kid and the upper body, head, and hair were all one molded piece. It was so bad.
  17. Really? I haven't gotten Cyclops yet. What is his problem? I was looking forward to getting him. I just picked up Sabertooth and he's pretty cool.
  18. Maybe. I saw someone mention the dramatic inferiority of the TB figs the other day. I kept my AoA Weapon X and sold the Hasbro one, but I will probably keep the Hasbro Sabertooth and burn the TB one with fire. I even sold the BAF Sugarman because, while it's articulation is not even close to Hasbro's, I like the OG TB Sugarman.
  19. Toy-biz figures fit well with modern Hasbro figures. I acknowledge they aren't perfect, but there are plenty of gripes about Hasbro's figures, too.
  20. This sounds interesting. The first cover is fun. It's nice to see all those random eras and characters mashed together. Edit: It was the first cover I saw, but it is the third cover in the first post.
  21. These look great. I'm glad I have the Toy-biz Nightcrawler. I'm not a fan of that head sculpt. I like how small Kitty is. That is a really cool faithfulness to the character. That Phoenix is brilliant! I love the easy head-swap customs!
  22. It's a cool look. I like the bandage. They should have done one with the bruise. Maybe that's problematic?
  23. Yeah. I'm happy with what they have released, and agree they could include future characters in regular waves since some of those characters are in the main continuity. I think it would get harder to not want more if they kept doing more. If they did Gambit, Nightcrawler, Storm, and Exodus, they will would have started three new teams. How could fans not also want Sunfire, Switchback, and Dazzler. If we get them, how could we not also NEED Madri and Infinites? At some point that train will have to sail and maybe earlier is better? Or maybe they could do two- or three-packs in the future. They seem to like doing those.
  24. This is the buck that keeps on giving! Granted, it isn’t a perfect Joseph, but it works for now. For a figure from Hasbro’s dark ages, it pretty versatile.
