  1. Tell that to retailers who only want characters that the target demographics know. You do that and convince kids/parents to buy characters that they've never heard of instead, and this line could go on forever. Hasbro has gone out of their way with Waves 2 and 3 to bring in characters that only fans would recognize. Hell, Death's Head and Whirlwind might be the most obscure character choices to date, so if putting CA and IM into Wave 1 meant we got those characters then collectors really need to take a look at the big picture of things. We think the big names ruin the line because we see t

  3. I agree! this is a strange occurrence from time to time with Marvel figures. Even the modern GI Joe figures didn't have the falling off leg issue. The other thing is the packaging that either warps the legs or arms out of shape; or the packaging is so tight that if yor not careful and cut it away from the figure, you will break the damn thing before you can even get it out! This is a pain... I always cut the figures out of the package with scissors, then have to boil them and and bend them back to normal There is also the fact that Joes use metal to hold the leg in place where as Marve
  4. I'm sure Hasbro knows exactly what they are doing. Creating that artificial demand so collectors like us will keep buying. Look at how they case pack the Wave 2 of Marvel Legends Captain America Infinite Series. Black Widow is 1 PER case of 8 and contains the chest piece for the Mandroid BAF. Hasbro only packs one per case of female characters (minus Jubilee wave). If that's the case they should have figured out by now it's not working. They are actually turning collectors away out of pure frustration. Sales are down and Hasbro has even lost the #2 toy company slot to Lego (
  5. Agreed, and this is a problem across all their lines.
  6. Of course it should be pointed out that Hasbro had (has) the knack of NOT delivering any GI Joes to Walmart, this has gone on for the past decade. Noting too that "Non-Marvel" includes the action figure juggernaught that is Star Wars makes some of this a bit tougher to believe. I can't see WM backing away from that. Also what is WM's interest in the 6 inch lines, what do they care (enough to cause all of this). Lastly, a huge factor is the prices, at nearly $20 the larger lines are becoming a harder sell in this tough economy, nothing is mentioned in this rumor about that.
  7. Aww, right when I am leaving for a late shift to work, will catch up later.
  8. I actually thought it worked great and was not a radical departure at all, the comedy of it (and I am not trying to spoil it but specificly wih the Hydra troop and the "top" under the jaw just made be giggle). It balanced out perfectly which is hard, hard thing to accomplish. Great work.
  9. WOOT!, that was awesome once again. While more violent than I am used to from you I couldn't help but laugh at some of the violent parts, call me sick but it was just hilarous to me LOL. Thanks once again for sharing.
  10. I forgot to mention I am really likeing the newer style of effects with things like Thor's Hammer and Thanos' fists. Great work and looks like it was tough to make.
  11. Very, very awesome, love how you incorperated that alternate spidey costume and the fights, effects and everything was just top notch. Also you hit my weak point by making a Marvel Two-in-one (probably one of my favorite overall series) thanks for sharing.
  12. ML 3 is thus far my fav, he is the one I grew up with and is the look of Thor I love. There are tons of variations Hasbro could do, but for whatever reason they don't.
  13. AWESOME!!! Been waiting for this. Some great cameos in there, wasn't expecting big steel (trying not to spoil) but he was very welcome. Awesome effects as well, darn near perfect in fact. One of your best efforts to date in that area. Awesome story, engaging and action packed, and tied up nicely. Seriously this one has to be my fav of all the comics you have done thus far (Of course you have cameos by some of my fav characters too so that helps ;-) ). Just can't say enough here.
  14. Very cool once again, I really dig the splash page on page 3 (with thor, trying not to spoil), and also the call back to it later. Oh and cool ending too. Great action and fun, awesome.
