  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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!
  5. It's a cool look. I like the bandage. They should have done one with the bruise. Maybe that's problematic?
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. Probably not with the way prices are now. I do really like the packaging and accessories, though. That alternate Jubilee head is pretty good. I prefer that hair style. Wolverine with that picture is so funny. What grown man has that? I remember my mom not liking all the soap operatics of that show. Imagine Scott jerking Logan's chain giving him a signed picture of himself and Jean. "Logan, I won. Sincerely, Scott." "Wolvie, She's better than you even know. Your pal, Cyke." Then he punch-dances out his rage in the Canadian tundra. Me too! I don't think I'd mind some cell-shading in order to get that figure.
  9. I like the idea, and understand the arguments against it. If it was Joe Madureira X-Men I'd be all over it. If it was Mike Allred X-Force I would not. I think there are some clear examples of figures bearing a distinct resemblance to a specific artist's work. My favorite Wolverine is the Toy-biz one, bendy claws and all, because the masked face looks so much like John Byrne. The newer Hasbro Wolverine's mask ears sweep back in a way that looks weird. The Toy-biz Nightcrawler looks like Alan Davis' version from his early Excalibur days. I like the weird chin. The Hasbro Beast is obviously in the style of Jim Lee. Way back in the day the Marvel's Most Wanted X-Man was very Steve Skroce inspired. Hasbro's Patch hearkens back to the early issues of Wolverine's second series with the talk curly points in his hair. Maybe this isn't what some have in mind, but I think they have been able to pull off some good homages without having them stick out like sore thumbs.
  10. That was a fun sequence of panels. I'm curious.
  11. The new Storm costume is nice. I don't know about the shoulder spikes. Like Wolverine, another decent update to a classic costume.
  12. Have they shown a diagram of this? I assumed they were sort of pinched in place. There is a pin inside somehow?
  13. I think the crowd-funding thing is a great idea and has obviously worked already for big-ticket items. I wonder how it would translate to an individual figure or a wave of figures. A lot of people complain about the AoA X-Men waves shelf-warming. Would it be good for them to sell a wave at the normal price through crowd-funding? I would think that guaranteed payment and no extra production would be a value to a manufacturer.
  14. I loved Adam Kubert on Wolverine back in the day. I actually like the new brown costume, too. It's a nice update to the classic.
  15. Neat picture. I'm always happy to be reminded of the upcoming X-men wave. On the subject of the pinless technology, should we expect the limbs to pop off more easily?
  16. I was going to say that too. Maybe he was a mutant all along, too? He can write in any language, he just never tried before. He is transcribing Professor X's teachings to be stored in a mountain on Krakoa for future alien generations.
  17. I was so mad when Hasbro switched from 6" to 3.75" back in the day. I'm sure many will enjoy these. They definitely aim for the playable market rather than the collectible market.
  18. What's the part about Marvel making it worse? Are you referring to M-Day? They blamed the Trasks for Cassandra Nova? Why on Earth is her name Cassa Nova?
  19. Yeah, I thought that quote was weird. "I'm here to ruthlessly defend our kind." I don't remember much of the story, but I thought she attached Genosha with the Sentinels.
  20. Ugh. I really did not like what Morrison and Quitely did to the X-Men. Everything about this character is annoying. Too bad, in my opinion. Maybe the stories will be good....
  21. As many have said, Bonebreaker looks kind of silly, but I think it works since he's supposed to be a sort of crazy. It'll be fun to have him.
