  1. -Man-Spider: The ToyBiz "Classics" one was not very poseable, despite having a pretty solid sculpt. A fully posable one is necessary, probably as a BAF or deluxe release. -Banshee: This time, in his blue and yellow uniform. -Baron Strucker -Dan Ketch Ghost Rider (with cycle, as a "Riders" set) -The Blob: They could even use the same tooling as the original BAF, just make it out of a better-looking, non-speckled plastic. -Dracula: I'd prefer a modern, armored version, but a re-do of the 70s one would also be cool. -The Mandarin: Green and yellow robe -Classic Hydra Soldier -Classic Ant Man: The retro one was on that TERRIBLE giraffe-necked body- we need a completely new one. -Classic Power Man and Iron Fist
  2. In no particular order: -Lockjaw -Blastaar (classic outfit) -Annihilus (classic, comic accurate- unlike the weird BAF we got) -Stegron -Awesome Android -Ch'od -Warstar -Zzaxx -A-Bomb -Spider Slayer (as pictured) I would really like Giganto and Shuma Gorath, but I think they are both too large and complex for Hasbro to release as BAFs, and would probably need to be done as deluxe figures, sold on their own. -
  3. The detail on this is nice, but everything just looks a bit too soft... he needs bigger, rockier "brows," etc.. Is he drawn like this in the more modern comics at all?
  4. Yeah... in the past few years, the quality of the paint jobs on the faces/heads of Marvel Select figureshas really gone downhill- I'm not sure what's up with that.
  5. Yes! I would definitely buy THIS Hulk (without a terrible head sculpt). And I agree- Hasbro probably won't do a completely unique body just for early-Silver-Age Hulk, but re-using it and having it be slightly too big is good enough for me.
  6. Yeah. The figure just doesn't resemble any version of Hulk from any form of media. It's not good. These are supposed to be "special" figures, but the 80th. Anniversary one is 100 times better. I could maybe be suckered in to buying a cool-looking repaint of it, but this fugly one, I'll only buy at steep discount, as kind of a joke, an example of a terrible figure to chuckle at. Hasbro needs some consistency- their head sculpts have been getting more inconsistent in quality lately. Sue Storm is not great, this Hulk is awful, and the upcoming Sabertooth is cartoonish and terrible.
  7. I’m sorry, but I have to politely disagree with you here. The Paul Harding head sculpt looks a lot less like Bronze Age comic Hulk, and a lot more like Mick Jagger. Heck, the old Mego Hulk’s head sculpt was much better than the weird Harding one.
  8. The torso seems a bit narrow compared to the limbs, especially the beefy legs, but overall, it’s still a really nice, must-buy figure.
  9. X-Men wave: -Banshee (blue and yellow) -Wolverine (Fang outfit) -Deathbird -Corsair -Mimic -Morph (X-Men animated, but without the cel-shading paint of the upcoming animated figures) -Lilandra BAF: Ch'od
  10. Yeah, at the very least. I feel like for the MSRP, and as a better tribute, we should get a hole-less shield, and at least a simple sculpted display base of some terrain, or something. When a regular figure with a BAF piece is $22.99, this without a BAF piece isn't worth 10 bucks more.
  11. It's a nice figure, but it doesn't feel $32.00+ nice to me. Maybe I'm a bit biased, because I'm disappointed by the lack of an actual sculpted display stand for the figures in this line, but these don't feel "ultra-premium" to me. I'll probably buy it, but I think the 80th. Anniversary Cap will still be the "definitive" classic Cap figure for me.
  12. This is what I would like. I don't want to see general-release waves being done with artist-specific themes, but I think it would be great to see one-off figures or two-packs based on specific artists, particularly classic ones like Ditko and Kirby.
  13. The Marvel Minimates line seems to be running on fumes- it's harder and harder to find them anywhere other than at a few online retailers (other than the Walgreen's exclusive ones), there are only 3 2-packs per wave, fewer waves per year, and now this... I'm sure the Marvel license is expensive, but this isn't the way to go. I want to support this line, but this is almost $10.00 a figure, and I don't care about the "deluxe packaging." I don't know what the rules are with the license, but you'd think they could find another retail partner to carry the regular waves- Target, Meijer, and Wal-Mart are all carrying more "collector-targeted" toys right now, from companies like Mego and Neca.
  14. So, has the 2-pack release of these figures been cancelled? If so, it's a big jump to $49.99 from 3 $9.99 2-packs.
  15. Some of us have strong nostalgia for the animated series- I would gladly buy figures of any of the villains in their looks specific to that series- Chameleon, Doc Ock, Morbius, and Vulture being the ones I'd want most. Personally, I would, eventually, like every unique look for every halfway-prominent character. Silver Age ones (Like Doc Ock in the purple outfit, and Chameleon in the smoking jacket) would be high on my list.
  16. I would buy all of these, but I think some of them (Judas Traveler, Carrion, possibly Moondragon) would be better suited for a wave with a BAF, as I don't think they would sell well enough overall without a BAF piece as incentive.
  17. I don't think that Sabertooth is ever going to grow on me- absolutely terrible head sculpt. This is a decent wave, and I'll buy them all eventually, but I think that Siryn and Maggot are the only two I'm going to bother pre-ordering.
  18. Oh lord, you're right... "Meesa gonna smash you bombad, Abomination!!!" Yeah- Sue, this Hulk, the upcoming Sabertooth... I really hope this isn't a trend of fuglier head sculpts...
  19. Who is approving these terrible head sculpts? This does not look like any previous Hulks- no other Hulk figure has looked like Mick Jagger. It's 2021- the Mego head sculpt from the 1970s looked much better than this. Then, they taunt us by showing us that cool old comic cover, with a Hulk that looks nothing like this figure.
  20. Hulk looks like Mick Jagger. Sabertooth looks like Impossible Man pretending to be Sabertooth. How could anyone at Hasbro NOT think these are terrible, fugly head sculpts? Bonebreaker and Maggot look particularly great, though.
  21. The second Goblin might be The Green Goblin from Amazing Spider-Man 2, just with a hood, etc..
  22. It looks better than I would have thought- not amazing, but probably watchable. Intrigued to see how it relates to the MCU. Vampire-form Morbius looks mildly crappy- the features are too exaggerated.
  23. I don't suppose there's any way to get last year's figure instead? I've been thinking of re-subscribing, but I'd rather have Cosplay Kamala Khan than this barely-different Kitty.
