  1. So in short, people are likely being quiet because it's usually angry folks making the most noise...and this year so far there doesn't seem much call for anger.
  2. The movie theater industry itself is probably BEGGING Disney not to release any Marvel films on digital vs. pushing them back (because they're going to want the big blockbusters in the theaters so they can make money off of them when they re-open). And unless you want that industry to dry up completely (I don't), then yeah...I'll accept them pushing some things back further until it's both safe for people to go and profitable for the companies involved. Mulan may change Disney's mind, but Mulan also had a tiny bit of controversy attached to it so they might have felt "safer" dumping it to home digital. Either way, boycotting because movies are getting pushed back in a freaking pandemic is about the silliest thing I've heard lately. Are the movies going to be less enjoyable because you had to wait longer to see them?
  3. It's still available for Pulse Premium Members. The only things that have "sold out" are the Supreme Snake Cobra Commander and the Heroes of Endor set (but those have both reverted to "Coming Soon" so I suspect they may have more in stock tomorrow). Had a very smooth experience at Noon getting Cobra Commander and the HFC set. The limit of 1 per customer and the captcha (which prevents bots) seems to have worked in preventing instant sell-out.
  4. Got the only two things I wanted, easy-peasy (HFC and Cobra Commander). Only had to wait a few seconds to check out. The Captcha and the "limit 1" seem to be working. I suspect they may even end up having some to go around tomorrow.
  5. That version of Warpath (The one in the Strong Guy wave) didn't use the knives. Those didn't come along until years later and a whole different costume (albeit with the same color scheme). Most of us haven't even gotten the Strong Guy wave in our hands yet, and may not even have the Widow, Demogoblin, Gamerverse, or AoA waves either. We know there's Venom-themed stuff coming, the Fan-Channel exclusives have been hitting at a steady pace, and the X-Men movie stuff is a fair amount of product. There is no "slim pickings" unless you're looking for a specific niche that's not represented. Especially once you toss in the non-shared exclusives and the HasLab Sentinel (Although that product won't actually hit until late next year). Right now, their release schedule has been upended because of Black Widow and Eternals getting pushed back, and the convention circuit being cancelled across the board means they're not holding full "panels" anywhere. Stop for a second and tally up all the stuff they've revealed across their lines in the last month or two. Combine it all together and you've got something pretty comparable to what you'd normally see get revealed at SDCC, and there's almost certainly more to come. We're used to shotgun blasts of information but instead we've been getting a steady trickle. Bottom line: This isn't even close to a dying line, or even reminiscent of one. And yeah, there's almost certainly going to be one or two waves of as-yet-unseen product hitting shelves before Christmas.
  6. Well, at least we can safely say these probably aren't the "would have been SDCC Exclusives."
  7. LOL. The male characters are super-muscular and square-jawed handsome because they're an aspirational power fantasy for male fans, not to be sexually attractive to female collectors. This argument you've tossed out is a false equivalence.
  8. Come on folks. You have to know that they're going to use the torso from Typhoid Mary/White Rabbit for the HFC women. That's as "curvy and busty" as you're going to get.
  9. I think they've pretty commonly had sets with 3 or 4 figures plus a "build a figure" sized addition. Though that's far from universal. So I could see Shaw, Emma, and Selene (maybe with swappable Tessa and Jean heads) and maybe Leland on a variant of the Kingpin body? I believe there was a hint that we were getting a troop builder that was "one we'd never seen before" several weeks back? I'm betting that's the Hellfire Goon. Though they could include one or two in the set I suppose.
  10. Hasbro's been all over the map, it's true. But as far as what's being sold on Wal-Mart.com come Friday, I have the feeling these are like those "shared exclusives" that we've had for several Comic-Cons (The A-Force set for Marvel Legends that was later sold at Toys R Us springs to mind as an example, or a couple of the GI Joe 50th anniversary sets). They were branded as "SDCC" Exclusives but sold through other retailers at seemingly greater numbers than the "main" SDCC exclusives that only saw limited release through Hasbro Pulse. But who knows? And they only announced the Friday thing what...yesterday? Day before? So they may not announce anything for early next week until later today or Friday. Or they may not have anything at all and sure enough they'll just let Wal-Mart reveal it.
  11. Well, the guy who posted that initial hint never specified WHICH Monday. And now it's looking increasingly like it's either going to be NEXT Monday or that they are indeed going to reveal it on Walmart.com (But I suspect the true "SDCC" Exclusives aren't what's being sold on Wal-Mart on Friday).
  12. The main issue I see with the "Make the box the throne" approach is that this was not marketed as a "Master Mold" figure. It was marketed as a Sentinel, and normal Sentinels aren't really known for sitting around. Also elaborate packaging has a price tag attached. Not that it'll cost US any more, but it will cut into Hasbro's profit margin on these. I could easily imagine the bean-counters "suggesting" that all that's needed is a simple box with some nice graphics on it. Much like the Sail Barge.
  13. Feel free to find any posts of me "drooling with anticipation." You'll be looking a while. Will I be happy to get them? Absolutely, if I can weather the online feeding frenzy that's sure to happen when they go up. But in the meantime, pretending like there aren't a host of people here that go into palpitations of rage every time they think a particular reveal is coming but doesn't reeks of selective reading.
  14. The sad fact may be that Hasbro Pulse simply might not be equipped to handle the sheer volume of a full SDCC production run of various exclusives. Usually they get a tiny fraction of it and the rest sells at the convention. But we're probably talking runs in the tens of thousands across multiple items. Basically they (Hasbro Pulse) might not have enough space to store it all.
