  1. 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.
  2. Are there any differences between this Spidey and the previous one, besides the unmasked head? Debating if I should order it or not.
  3. Great figure- might end up being my favorite from this wave (Waiting on preorders for most of them).
  4. It's disappointing that the display is just a simple stand with a cardboard background, but besides that, this figure is excellent! Looking forward to this wave.
  5. The lack of paint on Colossus is disappointing- he really needs a paint wash to bring out the detail of the sculpt. The sculpt is great, but the lack of paint doesn't do it justice, and makes the figure look too plastic-y and kind of cheap. Between the lack of a neutral head sculpt, and the paint issue, Colossus is frustrating.
  6. What happened....? Is there any chance this is a high-quality bootleg or something? Those head sculpts look MUCH worse than the prototype... like, completely different.
  7. This sounds like par for the course for most X-Men waves- a few new versions of major characters, a couple of never-made characters... we'll probably get one more major character, like a Storm, Beast, Cyclops, etc., and one more new or obscure character, in the last slot, or as the BAF. I'm hoping for original costume Sabertooth, like many others. They make a lot of Wolverines, but he has had a ton of different "looks," and he never pegwarms. Hopefully this will be a never-made-before outfit of Wolverine.
  8. Fingers crossed- having both her and Siryn next year to complete that X-Force roster would be great.
  9. Yeah, I thought that, too, The only other thing the drum/barrel made me think of was the barrels of chemicals on the truck from the accident that gave young Matt Murdock his power, but we've had plenty of Daredevil figures, and I don't think they're making a young Matt Murdock with chemical barrel...
  10. Feral is on the X-Force team card. My guess is that we will, at least get Feral and Speedball, but we'll see.
  11. Death's Head also has a card in the set, and has never been made as a Marvel Legends figure. We got Death's Head 2, but not the original Death's Head.
  12. This is actually a really, really good opening for this movie. Labor Day weekend is usually terrible for movies, because people are out enjoying "the last weekend of Summer." Shang-Chi is going to more than double the previous record for movie gross on Labor Day weekend, this during a pandemic, for a character that most of the general public has never even heard of. This is awesome! The buzz for it is extremely positive, too, from both audiences and critics, which means it should have longer legs in theaters than the average blockbuster. It is exceeding expectations in every way- nothing negative about any of this.
  13. Did the Wal-Mart exclusive Spidey go up for order/pre-order today? If not, any word on when?
  14. Same. It was a popular film- I haven't heard many people complain about it. The Target-exclusive Spidey and MJ 2-pack seemed to sell pretty well, too.
  15. Are we sure that all of the revealed figures are from the regular wave, as opposed to any of them (maybe Jonah) being store exclusives?
  16. My guess is we will see F4 retro wave in full, and one or two F4 fan channel retro figures, if we're lucky. We'll probably see the Excalibur set. They may "officially" reveal the Eternals wave, as well.
  17. Would The Starjammers, and Shi'ar characters, fall udner this, or would they not, due to the X-Men connection?
  18. That's what I was thinking- this is a great "gift set" for kids. 7-year-old me would have been extremely excited to get something like this as a Christmas or birthday gift
  19. $52.99 is really pushing it for The Hydra Stomper, price-wise. Sounds like it's about the same size as the Iron Monger, but with less detail and small parts. To me, it should be $59.99, with a scrawny Steve Rogers figure.
  20. These are cool. I wish that Zemo and Agatha (in particular) were in here, but these are a lot of fun. I wonder if Agatha was kept under wraps, and that's why there has been so little merchandise of her so far? I reeeeeeeeeeally want a Legends figure of her.
  21. Walgreen's has been very inconsistent. ONE of the many Walgreen's stores near me got in a few figures from the House of X wave. That wave had the Back Widow movie Legends at $14.99 each (this was a couple of months ago). No other stores me have figures from either of those waves. A couple of Walgreen's got in the Venom movie wave late last year, including one that got in a bunch of them. That store randomly restocked with Age of Apocalypse figures a few months ago. I think individual store managers have some amount of input over what their stores get in and restock, which could have something to do with it, but overall, for the past many months, Walgreen's has really been slow in restocking toys, Legends and otherwise. I enjoy them as a store, but they shouldn't have exclusives if there's no consistency or uniformity. Hoping the few announced Legends and Star Wars figures are "brick and mortar" exclusives for Walgreen's. and get heavy availability on Pulse, and/or with some other e-tailers.
