  1. An Indiana Jones series would be amazing! I think it would be good to mix-up the waves among the different movies, to give it variety, and prevent pegwarming of characters from less-popular Indy movies, so people could complete the BAFs. Wave ideas... ---Wave 1: Classic "Raiders" Indy Marion Ravenwood (red and white "Raiders" outfit) Toht Indy in Tuxedo (TOD) Mola Ram Grail Knight Elsa Schneider BAF: Arabian Horse ---Wave 2: Indy in jacket with tie, with machine gun (Last Crusade) Dr. Henry Jones Irina Spa
  2. Agreed- the Toy Biz one is more "realistic," but this one looks more like MODOK does in comic books. I still think he should maybe come with a few more interchangeable pieces for $50.00, but really well done. Both great figures- I'll get this new one, but hang on to the Toy Biz one, too.
  3. Since there's only a couple of months between Black Widow and Shang-Chi being released, I would be surprised if we didn't get some kind of trailer for Shang-Chi before BW comes out, even if it is just a teaser. It's weird that Target received solid cases of just those two; I can't think of big box retailers receiving solid cases of any regular Marvel Legends figures before. Hopefully this won't be too widespread.
  4. Yeah, I could see where that might be frustrating for people who only collect X-Men-related figures- I definitely think X-Men related BAFs should be reserved for X-Men waves. I think people often have to buy a figure or two they are less keen on to complete a BAF, which I guess means that, profit/sales wise, Hasbro's strategy is working.
  5. It depends if Hasbro could execute the cape well. I would say a deluxe, with the fancy cape, a couple of sets of interchangeable hands, interchangeable head with closed eyes, some spell effects, and one of those clear display stands like the one from the deluxe movie Black Widow would be awesome.
  6. With the FF Retro wave, I wouldn't count on the two unidentified figures being ones Toy Biz released in the original FF line- All of the retro waves, so far, have included figures that Toy Biz did not release in those toy lines- Gwen Stacy, armored Daredevil, Dazzler, Wasp, etc.. I'm not saying they definitely WON'T be characters from the 90s line, but they might not be. Whether in this wave or not, I bet we'll get several heralds of Galactus if he is the HasLab project- they would fit in "cosmic" waves besides FF waves.
  7. So, it sounds like I should read "House of X." I'm happy to get the AOA figures, I'd just rather have them be, say, 2 per wave, mixed with other figures. I will still buy them, but I'd rather they didn't delay us getting characters like Deathbird, Marrow, Avalanche, 80s Rogue, original costume Sabertooth, Starjammers, much-needed updates of Toad and Banshee, etc.. Granted, with Lady Deathstrike in the "Bad Guys" wave, it seems like they might be more open to peppering X-related characters in to some other waves.
  8. Ahhh, ok- I had heard it was an "alternate universe" storyline, but I guess that must have been an over-symplification- I am not up on recent comic books. Still, it's a whole wave from one modern storyline, when there are so many main-universe figures from the previous 50+ years to be made, which seems like an odd choice. I wonder if we'll get any more "Fan Channel" F4 figures when the retro wave is released? I agree that Super Skrull would be a decent candidate; other figures that could mainly use existing tooling would be be a classic Blastaar, Terrax (with a big ol' rock to stand on),
  9. Clearly, "Pxxxxxxxxxxxx" is Paste Pot Pete I hope they make up for all of these alternate universe X-Men waves with a whole bunch of main-universe X-Men figures soon. It boggles my mind that they thought 3 full waves in a row of alternate universe figures was a good idea.
  10. It still seems weird to me that they're going "all in" for Marvel Legends with an unproven concept like this, though it has the potential for some fun figures. Uatu, even if his head looks a bit undersized here, would be a cool BAF. Still, I hope we get some more WandaVision figures sooner than later.
  11. Even if they were going with this version of Mr. Hyde, I really don't like this head sculpt- it's just too cartoonish, and not very good. It makes me think of the WWF "Maximum Sweat" action figures from the late 1990s. I don't expect them to do another version, or release, of Hyde, but I would LOVE a different, hatless head sculpt packed-in with another figure, because this and Wendigo are probably my 2 least-favorite BAF head sculpts in the whole ML line.
  12. Meteor Man is a fun, family-friendly superhero movie- it's not amazing, but it's fun, and has a great cast (James Earl Jones, a platinum-haired Don Cheadle, Luther Vandross as a hitman... seriously...)- the downside is, Bill Cosby is in it, so I don't know if I'll ever actually watch it again. Oh, yeah, I would gladly buy a couple more waves JUST of figures from that film- I'm just assuming most or all of these movie figures will be from the next live action movie. Noir would seem the most likely if they're going to put a Spiderverse figure in there. Noir, main suit Mile
  13. Interesting. Maybe something to do with copyrights related to the movie? Whatever the case, I would definitely buy a figure of him in his original white and purple outfit.
  14. Ah, so The Looter changed his name to The Meteor Man? Seems an odd choice, especially with the 1990s film... I would love some of the more obscure characters- The Enforcers would be amazing. I wonder if Hasbro could do some "Made to order" figures of some of the more obscure characters that probably wouldn't sell as well at retail. I would buy pretty much any Spidey-related character. All of the rumored retro figures sound like great ideas. I'd like to see some figures of characters on those cards in the actual outfits they wore in the 1990s cartoon, too. I'd also love to see a purp
