  1. I question Hasbro's wisdom in making a whole X-Men wave based on one modern comic storyline. Current comic readership is very low- the Age of Apocalypse Legends wave seems to be one of the least-popular waves of the past few years, and many, MANY more people have read AoA than House of X. These figures are well-done, but there arte still so many characters and outfits to be done for X-Men within the mainstream universe, it seems like an odd choice. 2 or 3 of these figures with 4 other figures would be nice. With this wave, the AoA wave, and all of the Fox X-Men figures, we've gotten so many X-
  2. Thanks- because of this post, I FINALLY got one!!! Glad I didn't pay a third-party mark-up.
  3. Daveed Diggs is crazy-talented. Glad he is at least "on the radar" of the MCU casting people- it'd be great to see him in The MCU at some point. Oscar Isaac is also hugely talented, and I think will make an excellent Moon Knight. He also seems to be a great guy, and it's always nice to see deserving people continue to get opportunities.
  4. -The Thing, in the tank-top-like blue and white F4 uniform, with interchangeable helmeted head. -Sue Storm, completely opaque, in blue and white uniform (with force field accessories) -Attuma -The Wizard -Crystal -Opaque, flamed-on Human Torch, with black lines on him, and no "4" on his chest I'd love to see more obscure characters, but I have a hard time seeing the wave doing well if it has more of them, at least until there is some new F4 media to raise the profile of characters beyond the core team and their biggest villains. I want all of The Inhumans, but th
  5. Awesome!!! This is a must-buy for me. That's only a matter of time- my guess is, possibly, in the next Retro Spidey wave. Tarantula might be lower on Hasbro's list, since they already did a 6" figure of him, but it has been several years, and the proportions on it were just odd. I would think a classic White Tiger would happen eventually; maybe more martial arts oriented characters will be on Hasbro's radar when the Shang-Chi film comes out...?
  6. It would be really cool to see a "Retro Series" of Secret Wars Marvel Legends. Doom is the only particularly unique one, but it would still be cool to get repaints of Iron Man, Hobgoblin, Cap, etc. on cards inspired by the old Secret Wars toy line, along with Doom in his Secret Wars getup. They could even throw in some characters who weren't in Mattel's toy line, but were in the Secret Wars comic mini-series. The Secret Wars series is still very well known, and a lot of people have nostalgia for Mattel's toy line.
  7. No, I don't, and I appreciate that they've started giving them more accessories to make for the lack of BAFs. The fan channel ones, in particular, tend to be repaints of sought-after figures. That Beast was a complete misfire, though- he never had those proportions when he was grey- they should have reissued the blue one with some new parts, and done a separate grey beast release on the Jackal body (which I hope they still do).
  8. It really depends on the execution, for me. Most of the Star Wars ones are underwhelming, IMO- especially at an elevated $24.99 price tag. I would buy ones that either make sense with the character, or are cute and/or clever- not just crappy, poorly thought out repaints. For example, I would buy a Deadpool in an ugly Christmas sweater, because it would be consistent with the character (Maybe with a Santa gat, and a sack full of weapons). I would buy a Santa Hulk, a red and green Iron Man, or something like a set with Beast as Santa, with Jubilee and a particularly unhappy-looking Wolverine as
  9. Seriously! That figure is such a huge disappointment. He's so... chesty... Then, they had to pack him with those weird space pirate guns... Crossbones is one of those characters that should always come with realistic firearms, like The Punisher.
  10. Really excited at the prospect of getting a Peter B. Parker Legends figure- this movie was amazing, and this is shaping up to be a great wave. Prowler wouldn't have been my first choice for an ITSV villain, but he's still welcome, and I understand it, because he doesn't take a ton of new tooling. I would really rather have him in the "riders" series, though, with his souped-up bike, but not sure if he would sell well enough to warrant the mass release with a $40.00 price tag. Really hoping he comes with an unmasked head. Hoping we get another wave with a Noir repaint, with fists and a hat. Not
  11. This looks like a Toy Biz figure from The Fantastic Four movie toy line. Echoing what others have said- Johnny Storm is not translucent, he's a guy who is on fire. An opaque figure with translucent flame accessories is the way to go. And, agreed- I strongly prefer that it not have the "4" logo on his chest. This is an easy pass for me. I would also be all over a proper Golden Age Human Torch figure.
  12. Right now, it says available to pre-order, for late March delivery. I wonder if they'll keep re-stocking it, or if these two production runs will be it?
  13. I wouldn't be surprised if it was a cameo, just as part of something multiverse related. I know there was talk when Hayden Christiansen was signed on for Star Wars Episode 9, all kinds of speculation... and it ended up just being a tiny amount of voiceover work. It would still seem like a shame to even acknowledge him in that role in The MCU, as that makes it much less likely that they'll cast him in a bigger role in an MCU movie. They should just ignore previous Spidey, Fantastic Four, and (non-Deadpool) X-Men films, as it relates to The MCU. Not that there aren't bright spots among those fil
  14. Yeah, maybe packing it in with Morph would work. I still think the Lilandra choice was odd- she's a very important character, she deserves her own official action figure.
