  1. I mean, this is a HUGE reveal, figuratively and literally, even if it's not your cup of tea. I don't know why you think HasLab is a scam- I backed the Star Wars Sail Barge, and it is absolutely amazing- one of the coolest things in my collection. It's a good way for us to get things that just wouldn't be made otherwise.
  2. Looks awesome!!! It would be nice if there was an option for backers to add one or two more of the Bastion figure for $19.99 each- at least one, so we can have one to display with each head. I'm definitely going to back it- hopefully it will get to all of the stretch goals!
  3. Bwahaha- excellent use of that Sky Masterson quote! Kudos!!! I pre-ordered Warpath, Maverick, and Black Tom. I may pre-order some others, but those are the standouts to me, and I see Warpath as being the "hot" figure of the wave. So, this wave is coming out in October? Since the Eternals wave is pushed back, how many more waves are left this year? It's a great but expensive year!
  4. This is a solid wave. The only figure that seems like kind of a waste is blue Deadpool, since we've already gotten a pretty well-done one. It's a Deadpool wave, so if we have to have two Deadpools, the Pirate one is fun, even if I have zero familiarity with it. Same with Shiklah- not familiar with her, but at least she looks cool. The other figures are all great, awesome choices, including Strong Guy as the BAF. They're consistently giving us 90s X-Force figures in each wave, which is awesome (Maybe Rictor and/or Siryn and/or Feral in the next one?), and other supporting X-characters, so I'm overall happy with this. I'm assuming one of the two Deadpools is going to be the 2-per-case figure?
  5. Ugh... those opaque glasses... I get what they were going for, trying to look like the Silver Age art, but it just doesn't work here (Plus, this figure doesn't look like Silver Age high school Peter Parker besides the glasses). Why couldn't they just be removable? I really dig the split head, but I think I'd rather that came with a different Spidey figure, and this one came with a non-glasses head.
  6. What's with the huge amount of Fox X-Men stuff this year? Yes, 20th. Anniversary, but I think most people would rather see these figures peppered in, especially as it relates to Legends, not just dumped en masse. I feel like they're assuming the nostalgia will be stronger than it probably is- still, I'll probably get Magneto, and maybe 1 or 2 others of these Pop! figures.
  7. I'm surprised that Crossbones seems to be a hot figure. I pre-ordered Widow, Yelena, and Winter Soldier, figuring they would be the toughest to find. That Crossbones is pretty fugly, with the weird torso, badly-painted neck, and space pirate guns. I guess it's just the only non-exclusive comic Crossbones, but, man, Hasbro could have done a much better job. Hmmm, interesting... It doesn't say exclusive; but, still, Mondays might be a good time to check for Legends...
  8. Yeah. The ideal situation would be for every single live-action piece of Marvel entertainment to be part of one big universe. We're getting there, I just wish Marvel could get ALL of the Spidey-Related live-action rights, so we could see these characters (Like Venom) tied-in to Spidey, as they should be, and interacting with him. Disney just needs to buy Sony as soon as they can.
  9. I was disappointed when the retro Spidey wave had nothing to do with the animated series, despite copying its packaging. I agree, Doc Ock would be #1 on my list, which would be: 1.) Dr. Octopus 2.) Morbius 3.) The Red Skull 4.) Smythe 5.) Blade 6.) J. Jonah Jameson 7.) The Chameleon 8.) The Vulture 9.) The Green Goblin 10.) Aunt May I would also love a Madame Web figure, but she NEEDS her chair, so she would maybe be a BAF (Which the retro series SHOULD have), or exclusive, etc.. Same with the mutated Morbius. There were so many characters that were basically in their classic looks, but with slightly different shades of color. All of these characters would be great choices, especially with new head sculpts inspired by the series. I hated the head on the recent-ish Green Goblin, which is why he made my top 10, despite being based on his classic look. Hobgoblin, The Shocker, Carnage, Venom... so many great choices.
  10. Yeah, you're right, a Banshee (green costume) and Marvel Girl 2-pack would be a good call, and then a single release of Banshee in his yellow and blue uniform. Better to spend less money, I just want a new Banshee.
  11. I'm kind of bummed that Storm is just part of a two-pack, since I was hoping there'd be a bigger "Giant Sized X-Men" set with a new (much-needed) Banshee. Still, if they were going to put her in a 2-pack with somebody, Thunderbird is definitely the best choice, as he is MUCH needed. With all due respect, it isn't "off-topic" to criticize body part choices. Would it be off-topic to criticize the two weirdly-skinny, giraffe-necked comic Ant-Man figures we got as Walgreen's exclusive and "Retro" figures? This Storm just looks odd- the torso looks like it is from a completely different figure than the head and limbs. This torso looks like it belongs to a small, possibly young (teenager?) person. Heck, the top half of this torso doesn't even look much like it goes with the bottom half. As at least one person pointed out, it almost looks like she doesn't have a ribcage. Nothing to do with chest, etc.- it's just weird-looking. She needs a ribcage, and shoulders. It's just a weird upper torso that should never have been approved.
  12. I feel like a lot of people on here have toy MSRPs in their heads from 10-15 years ago, and don't realize how dramatically they have gone up in recent years. The giant Millennium Falcon that came out around 2008 or so was $150-$180. Hasbro has said that if they re-issued it today, they would have to charge $500.00 for it. I'm not faulting people who wouldn't pay Hasbro's MSRP- I'm just saying that people shouldn't have unrealistic expectations. The Slambulance isn't really comparable- it is not fully detailed, not truly to scale, etc.. And, yes, if it was done well, I would pay $300.00 for it. As for your otehr concern, that's why it would likely have to be a HasLab project- money up front, guaranteed sales minimum, etc..
  13. As one or two people have said, this body just doesn't work for grey Hank- it's too bulky. It's still a decent-looking figure, and the new head sculpt is very well done, but grey Beast looked more like a regular, extremely muscular guy, as opposed to the bulkier look of Jim Lee era Hank McCoy. I'll still buy it, but it's just good, not great. As others have said, the accessories are great, so those with the new head in blue would make for a great, definitive X-Men animated Beast. It'd be nice if they re-do grey Beast some year in the future, on a different body.
  14. I mean, I'm reeeeeeeeally hoping we get a proper Giant Sized X-Men set, even if it means I have to buy a couple of slight repaints/reissues. Red Hulk has shown up in stores??? I still keep checking for pre-orders to go live, lol.
  15. I don't think Hasbro has ever gone to C2E2. Mattel used to go, for a few years, but they stopped that a few years back. There is a slight chance that Diamond Select could reveal something, but that would be the only possibility. Marvel themselves wouldn't do the big reveals of Hasbro products. Still, it is a very fun convention.
