  1. Agreed, on both counts- the way the pouches stick out to the sides just looks awkward and unnatural, like something is lifting them slightly, as opposed to them having any weight to them. The hip joint areas just look all kinds of odd and float-y. It's not bad, but the Legends figure is better, cheaper, and in scale with more figures. Marvel Select has gotten pretty inconsistent lately- comic book Taskmaster looks beautiful. This figure is OK. Silver Centurion Iron Man has a tiny head, and the face on MCU Captain Marvel was terribly done. The upcoming Hulk looks very nice.
  2. Are they saying that the Falcon with the long-sleeved, translucent-winged, fairly-modern costume is "classic Falcon?" It looks great, but it isn't "classic Falcon-" hopefully a true classic Falcon is still on their radar. Also, I hope (but am not counting on it) that Thunderstrike also has a non-yelling head. Some great announcements overall- Legends continues to be, by far, the toy line that Hasbro handles best. Really, really excited about film-accurate "Into The Spiderverse" figures- I really hope we get a good selection of them- that movie was amazing.
  3. It is way too small- no way Tony's head can fit inside that tiny helmet... Yeah, they've had some issues... the movie Captain Marvel figures had pretty awful head sculpts- they looked like some random person cosplaying Carol Danvers.
  4. Maybe it's mainly the lighting, but why does it look like her hair is made out of raisins...? Great figure otherwise.
  5. It depends if they're counting Minimates as action figures- I'm assuming they aren't, but both Mastermind and Shriek have been made as Minimates- no other figures of them, though, and both would be cool. Mastermind might not be the most interesting looking, but he is so CLASSIC. Swarm was made in the later 1990s by Toy Biz, but he would be AWESOME as a Legends figure.
  6. Zabu's mold was originally used for a tiger from the 8-inch GI Joe line, which had a more stylized, angular look, which is why he looks a little funky. Shanna and Ka-Zar were decent, but that set has gotten very hard to find, and all 3 could definitely use updates. We'll probably never get it, but how awesome would a Devil Dinosaur BAF be...?
  7. Both the paint job and the tendrils kind of... lack refinement to me. The head sculpt is great, but the tendrils lack fine detail- the sculpting on the mouths really looks soft. The paint job doesn't help, either. It's not awful, but it is just-OK. I'll probably still buy it, but I won't be super excited about it.
  8. It's a so-so batch of reveals for me. Silver Centurion looks nice, and the Tri-Sentinel head is cool. The Venom wave is underwhelming- there's just not a lot of variety or "newness." Besides Phage, these are all versions of characters that have been made before. The last Venom wave gave us 3 new, overdue characters in figure form. The new Carnage looks cool, but there was a Carnage in the last wave- this one could have waited. The head on Morbius kind of kills it for me- the "windswept" hair will only look good in specific poses- otherwise, he'll look like he's about to become a Super Saiyan. When Hasbro gives figures super-specific heads (Like this, or yelling ones, etc..), they really need to include a more neutral alternate head. Venomized Miles just looks kind of weird... The other figures are well-done, but Phage is the only all-new character. I'll probably buy them all eventually, but I only pre-ordered Phage and Gwenom.
  9. BBTS is the most reliable for wrapping stuff well (Though I have never ordered from Dorkside.)- So, if you care about package condition, or just generally worry about your items being packed properly, they're great. Amazon is bad (often shipping figures in bubble mailers), and Pulse varies. Pre-orders on BBTS also tend to be open longer- so, if it is sold out on other sites, BBTS may have it. For me, the biggest perk is the "Pile of Loot-" you can order as much stuff as you want over the course of up to 90 days, and have it all shipped at once for $4.00. They also carry a big selection of stuff- I collect a lot of different toy lines They're a great place to order/pre-order some of Super7's stuff without having to pay Super7's high per-figure shipping. So, I can get Super7 figures, Star Wars, Minimates, Marvel Select, Marvel Legends, etc., and have a bunch of it shipped for $4.00, well-wrapped in a sturdy shipping box. So, if you just want to get a couple of Legends, shipped right now, they might not be your best choice, but they have some definite pluses.
  10. Wal-Mart is the absolute worst choice of retailer- their distribution of exclusives is always poorly handled. Amazon is very consistent. Target is almost always consistent. Hasbro Pulse could work. Wal-Mart is AWFUL (besides just being an overall terrible company)- they are awful for in-store exclusives, awful for online exclusives, and awful for pre-orders. Ugh.
  11. 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.
  12. 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!
  13. 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!
  14. 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?
  15. 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.
