  1. 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.
  2. 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
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. OK. I haven't seen the sale prices in stores. I've seen some reduced prices online, but not for all the figures. I haven't even seen Apocalypse.
  8. I hadn't thought of them finishing the major players for certain titles. Sinister would work with both Factor X and X-Man Havok would work with both Factor X and Weapon X. I really don't want Legion in this wave though.
  9. Did the AoA wave not have good sales, or the suggestions for AoA wave 2, or the ones you put in parenthesis?
  10. I'd be happy with multi-packs, if that is true. I wonder how many multi-packs would make sense. Would they do an AoA love triangle with Magneto-Rogue-Gambit? Colossus and Shadowcat? Are there a bunch that make sense?
  11. Holy cow. I just checked page 1. That is a very thorough list. Thanks for putting it together. So many interesting opportunities. I liked the villains teams too. For some reason I like the geriatric Brotherhood members from the 200's of Uncanny. Can you imagine if they made a three-pack of them? They'd probably be shelf-warmers if they made more than ten, but I'd buy them!
  12. That Lilandra is ugly, but if they made it nice, I'm interested. I like the Gambit if they do a boxset of the training uniform X-Men. Who is the red guy in the armor suit?
  13. I don't mind ball-joint hips. I can't stand the single joint knees. I believe that is what Lilandra had, and they are el terrible. More than a few of those are Toy-biz molds or early Hasbro. I'm sure we'd all like to see them updated.
  14. I was never interested in the Avengers until post Heroes Reborn. I would maybe be interested in more of the George Perez characters so I went with Transian. I like the Crossing, Transian, and Force Works looks because they are different. I'm not familiar or sympathetic enough to the character to notice the minor details separating most of her styles. As it is, I only have the Toy-Biz Scarlet Witch, and her hair fell off the head and doesn't sit right, and I'm content to stick with her even after seeing the three-pack version.
  15. Same here. It means money saved though. I wonder if aiming for hard core fans would benefit sales though. I bet that AoA wave sold really well for a comic based wave.
  16. That's a great way to get some of those figures that have been in demand for a long time. I think I'd like one more Marauder in there.
  17. Well, they are not that good by today's standard, but maybe they were in their own context. I don't personally find the goofy bell bottom boots that most Marvel heroes had back in the day to have aged well. I think Strong Guy was intentionally goofy. His presence compliments the "cool" guys like Iron Man or Spiderman. They did explain his proportions as a result of his mutation. With that said, I never noticed the diaper.... Thanks.
  18. I happily display my Toy-Biz with my Hasbro, and I happily display my Hasbro with my Toy-Biz. I don't hate on either one. I think, in my display, they complement each other. Some of the TB articulation has gotten loose, but I expect that will happen over time with any plastic toy. It really is a fun time to collect. I don't think it's nostalgia for me. Nostalgia comes in to deciding to purchase or pass on certain figures and chase the BAF part on the secondary market. In the TB years I bought everything. Now I stick to X-Men, and even those are limited to before the Grant Morrison reboot,
  19. I'll only get them if they have comic-accurate teeth and feet....
