  1. I preordered Storm, Siver Samurai and Iceman on Amazon since I didn't want to risk not finding them down the road later. Cyclops is my favorite X-man but I'm sure I can find it later, I'm not big on Dazzler so maybe if I find it for cheap later I might pick it up. As for Wolverine, I am sick and tired of Wolverine releases and if it doesn't come with a BAF piece it is an easy pass for me.
  2. The head doesn't look good,imo, but the rest of the figure looks nice, I don't collect Figuarts but I admit they do good work.
  3. At first, I wasn't really interested but the more I see it the more I like it, might even read the comic at some point.
  4. I'll still give it a watch due to my love of the Netflix Marvel universe but last season left me with a blah feeling. Hopefully this season is as strong as the first and they actually do some character development unlike the second.
  5. I want a comic book Quake before anything else but I'll take a Melinda May figure, Ming Na deserves it. Seriously though a Morgan Lefay should be a no brainer on an Avengers Wave. Looks like this is following the trend of the adult characters on the show being more interesting to me than the kids.
  6. I can't wait for this, easily one of the things I'm looking most forward to this year. I love the vintage WW2 era look to it and even though I'm not big on the Ultimate Universe this is a must for me since I try to get everything Captain America related. I'm hoping they get around to making another set with the more contemporary motorcycle from the comics. Now where's the Cap and Peggy 2 pack shown at Toyfair?
  7. The torso for me is the selling point, I have been waiting for years for Marvel Studios to incorporate the scales/chain mail into Cap's movie outfit so I'm definitely getting the figure.
  8. I have almost every movie Cap except for the Infinity War version and I still plan on picking up this one but Cap is one my favorite comic book characters so there's that. I just hope I can find it, seriously I have never seen the Corvus Glaive 2 pack, never saw the Luke Cage/Claire temple 2 pack(ended up getting it at Gamestop), never saw the exclusive Thanos and let's not even go into the exclusive Captain Marvel figure. I'm wondering if Hasbro is planning on releasing this one down the line in a 3 pack or 2 pack with a broken shield and battle damaged deco like they did with the Civil War figure.
  9. This looks pretty good, too bad it's exclusive to one of the worst places to shop exclusives at.
  10. I'm sure that some kids moving on, graduating, going to college, ect. will be adressed it's probably not going to be anyone that had lines in the previous movie. I'm sure there was mass hysteria, but we are talking about an universe where people saw not one but two alien invasions, 3 helicarriers fall to the Potomac or whatever the name of that river was, a city float and drop from the sky so at this point I think they were used to weird stuff happening. I'm sure the governments and the people adapted. Most probably the fact there were fewer cars on the road, almost no traffic jams, trains and flights were on time and more supplies for everyone helped.
  11. Maybe it's supposed to be Detroit Steel *Mind blown* Just kidding, I'm also thinking concept art or post production change. That Rocket outfit though closest they have gotten to the 2008 Guardians run look, a personal favorite of mine.
  12. All of the following can be put in futures Avengers Waves: BAF Mr.Hyde, Moonstone(bucket head), Classic Baron Zemo, Blackout(Marcus Daniels), Titania, Molecule Man, Graviton, Volcana, Nefaria, BAF Super Adaptoid, Classic Perez inspired Ultron, High Evolutionary, Morgan Lefay, BAF Griffin and for the love of Odin can we get a regular size non powered Absorbing Man? There I go again, I can talk about characters that I want made all of day but that's not the topic. About this wave, I really like the look of the body sculpt of the Hulk BAF but is anyone else finding the headsculpts odd? I mean they have a pretty good likeness but I feel the size of the forehead is too large it looks like a Hulked out Leader more than Banner. Union Jack is an instant purchase I'm glad I didn't get the previous one now. Shuri looks better than in the initial images but I'm still on the fence about getting her despite my love for the character, Rescue looks good too but I can't help but feel we may get a better version down the road. War Machine also looks cool but I have all of the previous versions so I'll most probably pass on this one. Rock Python looks plain but it's another Society member and that makes it a must for me. Loki could have been done so much better, I'll still get him because it's classic Loki. All and All not a bad wave, I feel there's something for everybody here.
  13. Yup, I remember reading a couple of those issues, he was also part of the Masters of Evil a team I'm hoping Hasbro completes at one point mainly the incarnation from the Avengers Under Siege storyline.
  14. Yes! MR. Hyde should be a BAF so he can get the proper treatment and they can sculpt the Victorian Era clothes, in fact, he should be a BAF in a future Avengers wave.
  15. I learned a long time ago, no matter what Hasbro does not everyone is gonna be happy. Someone is gonna complain about either or a combination of these: -Use of a certain body mold. -Reuse of certain body mold. -Character Choice. -Paint apps. -Lack of a certain point of articulation. - The choice of costume/look/era for a character. I have witnessed and participated in too many Classic vs. Modern, MCU vs. Comic debates that it's really not worth it anymore. Personally I prefer comic looks over movies but I don't dismiss MCU figures they tend to be some Hasbro's best work with some nice detailing and sculpting, also the Marvel movies is one of the reasons a lot of stores still carry Marvel Legends. That said, I feel Hasbro is doing a terrific job with the Marvel Legends, they are not perfect but they are providing a nice balance of comic, mcu, classic and modern. We may not always get the character we want but we have to understand that not everyone is the same and we all have different tastes. I'm sure Hasbro is listening and we may get there yet but seriously Hasbro where's my DD love I need Owl, Gladiator, Matador, Mr. fear, Echo, Lady Bullseye, Stilt-Man in my life, also my street/urban characters are kind of lacking so Shang Chi(upcoming movie), White Tiger(Hector Ayala), Gideon Mace, Enforcers, Razor Fist, Bushwacker maybe even a Señor Muerte but I digress and I went too obscure, carry on, back to the Endgame wave, these look good. lol
  16. I can understand that and I agree that it could have been better. Myself I would have preferred Loki being a brand new body sculpt that was more slender and slightly taller. Heck they could have given us a Count Nefaria, easy reuse of the Walgreens/Vintage Punisher or a classic Graviton which also wouldn't wouldn't require much new tooling and save Loki for the 80th anniversary line and get the same treatment as Thor and Iron Man. I'm guessing that Shuri, War Machine, Rescue and the BAF ate up the budget. That said, I'm still happy we are getting a Classic Loki, long overdure, however phoned it ended up.
  17. It's funny because for years I saw classic Loki in people's wishlists and now that we are getting one people are complaining about the figure getting made.
  18. When I saw the packaged images and the lack of Pepper Potts unmasked head I said out loud: "well that's disappointing", my wife ask what I meant and I told her, her response was: "Oh honey, you just know Hasbro is gonna re release it down the line in a 2 pack with Iron Man and they are both gonna have unmasked heads and the accessories that were missing the first time around." I hate that she may be right.
  19. I was hoping the merger would kill this atrocity, but here we are. If you wanted to adapt one of the most iconic X-men storylines you could have slowly built up to it in the span of more movies. Once again someone decided it was a good idea to rush an adaptation of a popular storyline while ignoring the aspects that made the story good in the first place. Mystique is still playing hero for some reason but at least it looks like she dies in this one so I would be spared of Lawrence's awful line delivery and her bad makeup which seems to get progressively worse. We still have Quicksilver shoehorned in with the X-men because people love his slo-mo/time freeze sequences. Looks like Magneto may be an antagonist yet again because they haven't overused him enough. Sophie Turner still acts like a robot and in these movies she doesn't have Game of Thrones writing to make her tolerable. Am I the only one who is getting X-men the Last Stand vibes from these trailers?
  20. Thanks for the info, about the Beta Ray Bill, I'll give the book a read when I get the chance, I'm currently on Secret Wars, I'll get there eventually. I'm thinking final battle Thor, Iron Man and Cap are coming in wave 3, I'm definitely in for Cap in his new suit since he finally got the "chainmail" aspect of the suit. I, too would have liked War Machine to have the look from the final battle, I don't know why but I got a Detroit Steel vibe from that suit.
