  1. For the cost, I wish she came with more than just one extra set of hands, but she turned out well- a simple, well-executed figure.
  2. Unfortunately, that looks to be the original ToyBiz release of it- the later Hasbro repaint is more of a metallic yellow. Thanks, though.
  3. Ahhhh, ok. That at least makes a bit more sense, then- I'm not up on the current comics. I assumed it was just typical Hollywood goofiness. Yeah, I've been surprised by how well the two Venom movies have done- Venom is a character that is just so intrinsically tied to Spider-Man/Peter Parker, that my interest level in movies that completely divorce his backstory from Spidey's is very limited. Kraven seems like one of the least-likely Spidey villains to be able to make a decent solo film about- Morbius, after first appearing in Spidey comics, at least established himself as his own "dark hero." It was still a terrible idea to make a poorly-written solo movie about him, but Kraven? That's a real head scratcher.
  4. This is a big one. Hasbro seems to be increasingly "penny wise, pound foolish." I understand that price increases are going to happen over time, but you can't give people less, while increasing the price, and not expect to alienate chunks of your consumer base over time. Little things like hands, or simple, generic display stands cost very little, but add a lot to the perceived value of a figure. Look at the recently-announced, overpriced, video game Spidey- if they had included two more hands, there would have been less fan backlash. If they included two more hands and an unmasked head, there would have been very little backlash. I also strongly agree with Hasbro making some new effect pieces- we've gotten the same fireballs and "magic" effects over and over. It's another case of something that isn't very expensive making a big difference. It looks weird to have a display of Marvel Legends with 20+ figures having the same effect pieces in different colors. Hasbro also needs to fix their packaging issues. They should just do away with the "plastic free" packaging, but whether they do that or stick with solid boxes, they really need to seal them extremely well. Swapping and theft have been a huge issue for years, but Hasbro still seals the packages with a few pieces of tape. They need to be strongly sealed, in a tamper-evident way.
  5. I really hope that the Kraven movie bombs, and Sony reconsiders all of these poorly-thought-out movies that focus on random villains and supporting characters. A Madame Web movie (except she's young and hot!)? They're making bad choices that would be comedically terrible, if I didn't care about the characters. We're being deprived of Spidey movies with a variety of his villains because of this Sony goofiness.
  6. I think some of them are too obscure to sell well enough, but some of them aren't. Rom would definitely sell, and I think a deluxe Devil Dinosaur with Moon Boy would sell decently. Sgt. Fury and western Ghost Rider would sell well enough in regular figure waves, but I think a deluxe horse and rider set would be cost-prohibitive based on the character's obscurity level- assuming the horse is well-articulated, I'm guessing it would be a $70+ set with Hasbro's current pricing. The Human Fly is actually in a current Amazon-exclusive Legends set. I think all of the others that you mentioned are probably too obscure, unless they pop up in a Marvel movie or show.
  7. Like the title says, I'm looking for some of the "Spider-Man Trilogy" 6" figures that Hasbro made in 2008 (Though the packages say 2007). Not the Sandman BAF Legends wave but the figures that came out the next year, which weren't technically "Legends" branded. I'm looking for most of them, packaged or loose (though I'm more of a loose collector), ideally complete and in great condition if loose. I need most of them, but Rhino, Shocker, Green Goblin, Doc Ock, and some of the versions of Spidey are highest priorities. I have a ton of stuff to trade, Marvel and otherwise, or I can buy them. Thanks! Pictures for reference:
  8. Yeah- which, to be fair is an OK amount of pieces, but I was hoping there might somehow be an unmasked Hyperion head in there. I suppose I can see if the old one will fit. Still, this is a solid set. I'm not blown away, but I'm happy with it.
  9. Any pictures of the box back and/or rundown of contents, to know what parts and accessories are included?
  10. The Iceman in this set is very disappointing. I was hoping we'd get the definitive classic Iceman figure, but this is a bad body choice for him- it just misses the mark. Spidey is nice, and Firestar is a bit of an upgrade, but overall underwhelming results.
  11. It's not like this is going to be dead-serious- Donald Glover is great, this could be a fun, quirky movie about a weirdly-specific villain. This has more potential to be legitimately entertaining than a solo Kraven movie... or a Madame Web movie...
  12. Yeah... I think he really deserved some extra interchangeable parts, but this is a much more classic Ronan than the BAF, in my opinion, and I'd rather have it for a slightly-high price than not have it.
