  1. Ugh, what a disappointment. I've really been looking forward to this figure- one of my most-wanted X-Men characters. Both heads are too small, especially the "normal" one. The "Dark Morph" one is ok, though he looks mildly beaver-toothed. The regular Morph head is tiny, and very generic looking. Morph has a very distinct look, including his pointy chin. I'm also hoping he comes with something besides the extra head and hands, at least one more head, but even if he doesn't, I would've been happy if he just, y'know, looked like the actual character. Is it just me, or is Hasbro getting worse with the likenesses on non-MCU characters? Is this another Paul Harding sculpt...?
  2. So, is the Mojoverse set exclusive to Pulse, or is it just available for pre-order on Pulse today, but will be available elsewhere eventually? And is Firelord a Fan Channel release?
  3. Wow... what a complete and utter train wreck of a figure. Such a shame- classic Sabertooth is a much-needed update, but this is a complete failure, and doesn't even look nearly as good as the ToyBiz "Face Off" one.
  4. Cool- I missed out on Dr. Strange originally, will get it just for that awesome display stand. I get them not including the 1/2 display base (that you needed Thor to complete), but it's a shame they didn't add SOMETHING to make up for it. Just the staff, with nothing else, is about the most bare-bones accessorization of any Select figure.
  5. No, but she and Miles tended to sell very quickly, so I kind of get it, but they should've just given Noir more accessories, and done a fully-articulated Spider-Ham when the next animated Spider-Verse film comes out later this year.
  6. Yes, unfortunately. It would be nice to get a fully-articulated figure if him at some point. The comic-inspired one at least had a few more joints, but was barely posable.
  7. If I trusted that Hasbro would use a strong, tamper-evident seal for this packaging, I would be much more at ease, but the fact of the matter is, the current Marvel Legends packaging style has been around since, what "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" Ultimate Goblin wave? Swapping has been a huge issue for all of these years, and Hasbro has continued to just use a small amount of clear tape to seal the packages. If they actually sealed every part of the packaging in the way that the Transformers Selects boxes are sealed, that would make a huge difference.
  8. Yeah, Chris Pratt is only an inch shorter than Chris Hemsworth. Dave Bautista is a few inches taller than Chris Hemsworth. Yet, I don't know if the Drax figures have been any taller than the Thor figures- they tend to make the Thor figures HUGE; while 6 foot 3 is tall, he isn't a giant.
  9. Toad bugs me- I really like Marvel Legends to have kind of a consistent, semi-realistic style across the board for comic-based figures, which this figure DEFINITELY is not. It is, however, a really good representation of Rob Liefeld's art... so, not a bad figure, but not what I was really wanting. For the inflated price point, it would be nice if they included a less-stylized alternate head.
  10. I've wanted a Ned figure ever since he popped up in the films. I also really liked the MJ. There are so many important "civillian" characters in The Marvel Universes (Cinematic and comic), I'm very glad Hasbro is making more of these characters. That being said, I really do want figures of The Warriors Three (MCU and comics), and am hoping that happens sooner than later. With all of the multiverse stuff, I could see some Asgardian characters who have met their demises being brought back to The MCU, but maybe that's wishful thinking.
  11. These "Deluxe" connectable figures Funko has been doing are a lot of fun, but it's hard to get on board at $30.00 a pop (pun intended). That's $180.00 for the whole scene, and means tracking down all 6 at 6 separate times. It would be cool to see Hasbro do some "Build A Scene" things like this. I WOULD be willing to pay $200.00 for upgraded GOTG Legends with an awesome ship's bridge diorama.
  12. I am very pro-environment, and recycle as much as possible, but this is just a bad move all-around. I hope this isn't going to happen with 100% of Hasbro action figures, but based on the new Basic/kid-targeted Thor:LAT figures coming in solid boxes like this, I think it will be the new norm eventually. Personally, I open 99.99% of the toys I buy for my collection, but this is going to make figure swapping insanely easy, unless Hasbro uses some intensely strong tamper-evident glue on the packages. My big issue is that this gives Hasbro even less incentive to have good quality control- there's no way for anyone to tell if their Knull has two left hands, or if Ned's eyes are painted on his forehead. I can deal with a dinged corner or creased card, but I will return a Spidey with a terrible paint job after I open it, especially with figure prices going up. I feel bad for retailers who will have to deal with this.
  13. This is a really, really well done figure. I would say both this and the Walgreen's Zemo are "definitive" figures of the characters. Hopefully Walgreen's' distribution issues really are improving, and Jigsaw won't be too hard to get/
  14. This isn't a terrible figure- it's just not up to modern standards, and, accessory-wise, seems very stripped-down for the price. With this level of articulation and accessorization, it's about $8.00 too expensive.
