  1. Got my Uncanny X-Force set in the mail today from a trade that I made with VAYEATE. It's so awesome!!!
  2. Spider-Man Legends would be the best idea ever. In my opinion...he has the best rogues gallery in the Marvel Universe hands down. The only thing that rivals it in any universe is Batman's. Too bad Hasbro never does it right. Spider-Man Classics are little more than a joke in recent years.
  3. There's no Wolverine in your Wolverine Legends line...I love that dream!!
  4. Wal-Mart is theeee worst place ever to have an exclusive. They could care less if the case ever leaves the warehouse. Diamond got their Amazing Spider-Man Marvel Select figures in comic stores 2 or 3 weeks (at least!!) before the movie came out & their Disney/Marvel store exclusives online & in store the week of the movie. Far superior in my opinion. And a much more intelligent business model. We all think Hasbro doesn't have our best interests in mind...well Wal-Mart clearly does not have Hasbro's best interests in mind.
  5. Not to mention a new Jen Walters She-Hulk! This would dwarf the Savage one from the Foom series.
  6. I think you may have meant something different but Wrecker is not in the same wave as TB and PD. Right I know that. I just said that Wrecker & Bulkdozer would be coming soon in a future wave as running changes of each other. I said they would be using the same mold as PD & TB and everyone thought that that would be impossible. Thought that I was crazy and a fool! I've never let that stop me though ha!
  7. Stryfe never should be a BAF anyways. He could easily be a single carded figure. Also: I remember a few months ago when I said here that Wrecker & Bulldozer were coming & would be released the same way as Thunderball & Piledriver (running changes). Everyone thought I was a fool!!! Totally bummed about no masterworks Fin Fang Foom. Maybe NYCC. Also very bummed that the Uncanny X-Force 3 pack is sold out. That saves us the time & trouble to try & track down a set on HTS this Tuesday. At least we'll get Wolverine & Archangel singles. Iron Monger BAF...AWESOME! There's still hope! We'll just have to buy lots of Iron Mans (Iron Men?).
  8. According to the panel today these are all sold out. Well that saves us the trouble of trying to track one down on HTS next week.
  9. Well said. I wish there was a like button on here like there is in the discuss section in the news links from the main page.
  10. I'm not the new generation. And in 10 years I'll sell what I have & start with the new. I imagine it will still be 6 figures to build Hit Monkey. Head, Torso & Tail, Right Arm, Left Arm, Right Leg, Left Leg. This is Hasbro we're talking about. None of us need to defend or apologize for them They don't want our loyalty they want our money. If they don't get it...well...they don't need it. They'll cancel the line again & make money off all their other lines. If you want awesome, huge figures buy Marvel Selects. They have a great Rhino, Venom, Ultron & Barbarian Hulk coming soon. They also have some others already available (Juggernaut, Colossus, (Red) Hulk, Sabretooth, Abomination, The Thing... Don't expect anything big (no pun intended) from Hasbro. Tiny pieces will likely be cheap on eBay though if you want to finish these TBAF's (Tiny Build A Figures...I'll take a nickel each time that it's used) w/o buying every figure. Buy what you want/like...skip what you don't. Sound logic.
  11. This also offers the (slim) possibility that we'll get figures like Zola, Terrax, Ares, Red Hulk...as regular single carded/two pack figures.
  12. Nope; I love it. Like I said it's better than nothing. And a cool way to get characters that we would never ever see without this "innovation..." (I use that term loosely ha). I'm through complaining about cool new things. Things never stay the same.
  13. Haaaaa Hit Monkey...I'll take it. Mini BAF's for next year. Better than nothing. Here's hoping we get Rocket Raccoon, Wild Child, Puck, Frog Thor...those would all be fun.
  14. Yeah I don't mind "re-releases" at all. I view this run of Marvel Legends as a brand new line. Separate from Toybiz. Separate from the first run of Hasbro Marvel Legends. With this new line brings lots of new collectors. It would be stupid & foolish for us to expect Hasbro to never make a character that they've already made before...even if it is a direct repaint (Doom, Deadpool, even US Agent...). Remember that the original Marvel Legends started 10 years ago. Who remembers what Marvel action figures were like in 1992 then the jump they made starting in 2002? The difference between 2002 and 2012 isn't as drastic but lots of the original Marvel Legends are due for updates and there are plenty of new collectors that will buy them even if you think the one you have is better. I personally sold most of my Marvel Legends when the first run of Hasbro ended so I welcome all the new figures...even if some of them could be better (Iron Fist specifically). I am really disappointed at the lack of a BAF in wave 3 but it seems, for now, that it's a one wave hiatus. We'll discover more as SDCC progresses.
  15. That's some great info Rick! That guy asked some great questions and Dwight gave some pretty good answers. Looking forward to the panel.
  16. Yeah I guess content is a good word. I'm content with Marvel Legends. Not thrilled or excited or overjoyed but still at least content and interested. A year ago we had nothing. I'm glad that the line is back & still around. And in any case...there is always room for improvement...no matter what. Gripes aside...they'll still get some of my money.
  17. Seriously! SDCC is the biggest collector/entertainment event of the year & they dropped this on us. I really love most of the new figures but...an exact re-paint of Dr. Doom? An Iron Fist with Spider-Man hands? 4 Captain America type figures in 4 waves? Madame Hydra (man face) head on Mystique? No BAFs for the same exact cost? Why are they wasting their/our time on a "filler wave" instead of using the huge venue that is SDCC to display something truly great? Oh well...something is better than nothing. Definitely cherry picking this wave though. May cancel my BBTS pre-order.
  18. Wave 2 is back in stock at BBTS for $119.99 plus shipping and tax. Just wanted to give a heads up for anyone still looking. Not sure if this comes with Masked Daken & BT Spidey but judging from what stores have been getting I'm thinking that's a safe bet.
  19. Oh geeze I didn't even think of that...I would hate if this was a movie set. Although my wallet would be happy.
  20. Hopefully it's not repaints of Hasbro Spider-Man Origins/Toybiz Spider-Man Classics Venom with 90's articulation & Lizard. HOPEFULLY Toybiz series 8 Doc Ock and Toybiz Fearsome Foes Lizard. I guess Sinister 6 Venom would be ok.
  21. Big Time Spidey has been consistently selling for under $30 on eBay.
  22. Scalpers thrive because they know that they can dupe impatient buyers into overpaying for figures that are rare at the time. If all collectors would allow some more time for product to distribute it would cut Scalpers out substantially.
