  1. 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?
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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/
  13. 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.
  14. Looks good!!! I really hope Hasbro goes back, as they have with some MCU films, and makes more figures from previous Disney+ series, too. All these months, and not even a render revealed for an Agatha Harkness figure yet...? Lots of additional figures to be made.
  15. Thanks! It wasn't showing up under "Marvel Legends Silk," or even just "Marvel Legends."
  16. Has Silk ever interacted with 70s/80s Doc Ock, or is this just a completely random pairing of figures? They do look good.
  17. The Foreigner? He'd better make sure he's Cold As Ice, and not too Hot Blooded, or else he might get Double Vision while playing Head Games with Kraven...
  18. It's not a bad selection of upcoming figures/characters, but it's disappointing that they're not doing anything more that is directly tied to the 20th. anniversary of Marvel Legends. I hope Toad is amazing, because the 3 figures we've seen so far that actually celebrate the anniversary range from just-OK (Captain America) to awful (Hulk). I was really hoping for them to revisit some more ToyBiz and early Hasbro figures in dire need of upgrades. Oh well. At least these upcoming not-anniversary figures sound like good choices on Hasbro's part.
  19. I'm wondering. In the past, some of the Lego sets (like some Legends figures) seem to be based on concept art and/or random Lego ideas, so hopefully this is the situation, or he just looks like this for the first part of the movie, or something along those lines.
  20. Thanks!!! It let me order two this time (unlike Quasar), so I'll at least have 2 chances at a good paint job. I wonder if these are going to show up in stores, too, or if Binary and Quasar are going to be online-only, while Walgreen's plays catch-up to get Zemo out there...?
  21. I agree with Crossbones needing to be done- I HATE the Black Widow wave one. Even if we ignore the space pirate pistols that he comes with, the buck they used for him should never be used for any figure again- the torso is weirdly short, and he has... breasts. He doesn't look muscular, he looks buxom. They could follow the same format they used, just on a superior buck, and it would be a great figure, but the breasts just make it look terrible, in my opinion. I would still like to see movie-accurate versions of the MCU Avengers "team suits," with the proper white, instead of silver. Do what they did with the 2-pack, and do them with multiple interchangeable heads. Then, finally give us a Hulk in the team suit, too.
  22. This was the big "must buy" figure of this wave for me- he's pretty great. His head seems a bit too small, but not absurdly so, so I can live with it. If the MSRP for Legends is going to be $24.99, I can live with it if we get more figures like Wong- lots of new sculpting, several interchangeable hands, a cool accessory, and a BAF piece.
  23. That explains a lot. They should never let Harding sculpt for Marvel Legends again. Maybe he can sculpt statues, bobbleheads, etc. that are his takes on Marvel characters, but Legends is not the place for his inaccurate, exaggerated sculpting. Marvel Legends should be the place for two kinds of sculpts: -More realistic versions of characters, in a fairly unified style, that all look like they belong in the same "universe," and -Figures based on specific Marvel media that are exacting representations of the style of that media (Like the "What If?" and "In to The Spiderverse" figures.). That's it. If it doesn't fit in to one of those two categories, it doesn't belong in Marvel Legends, unless they do some kind of a "side series" of specific artist's interpretations of characters. That being the case, that should be reserved for legendary artists like Jack Kirby, Steve Ditko, and Jim Lee. Again, Harding has some talent, Marvel Legends just isn't the place for it. The Hulk is an easy pass, unless I find it cheap (mainly for the Mandroid head), bit it's unfortunate that a figure like Sabertooth, in an outfit that a lot of collectors want, is saddled with a fugly, cartoonish head sculpt. I don't have a better option for Sabertooth in that outfit, unlike Hulk.
