  1. I'm not saying people are wrong for wanting the obscure figures shown, but while you won't pretend you don't want figures I won't pretend that I do. I have zero interest in 6 of those 18 characters, so I won't be buying them if they come out. But I can almost guarantee you they won't come out anyway, because there's no chance in hell that Nuke is going to win over characters like Deadpool or Multiple Man or Black Widow, but in all honesty I think Hasbro knows that fact and that's part of the reason why we're seeing those characters in the selection: they were easy to put together yet obscure enough to seem like they are trying to cater to collectors. Also, I understand that not everyone wants the same figures made, but that's not really the point I'm making. I'm not saying Hasbro has to make everyone happy, but it's absolutely baffling that they wouldn't include a single figure that many, many collectors have been asking for. And I'm not just speaking personally: take a look at top 10 polls all over the place. I guarantee you that you won't see Nuke, Fantomex, Lady Bullseye, or Terror Inc. on any of them. Yet all the ones that do show up on the Top 10 polls showed up in MU. Strange, isn't it? I'm not saying you should buy them or pretend to want them, I just don't see why making a character is bad just because you're not a fan of the character. One of the earliest MU figures made was Maverick, I character I've never cared about. But I wasn't mad that they made him over Beast or Nightcrawler. I just didn't buy him. And, I dunno, I just think "no obscure characters" is a bad message to send. Personally, my two most-wanted characters are Baron Zemo Jr. and Songbird, so I obviously don't want Hasbro to ignore the obscure characters. By your logic, we would have missed out on a lot of great figures...Man-Thing, Deathlok, Sasquatch, Maestro, Werewolf by Night and the other monsters, Beta Ray Bill, Ronan the Accuser, etc. Were those figures a slap in the face?
  2. Really? You're going to complain about new figures? Because they didn't make the ones you want them to make? Really? Seriously this is a time to rejoice not fuss & complain. If people keep complaining about new figures Hasbro will say "See, we were right! No one wants 6 inch figures!" It's all the excuse they need. Please don't give them that! Are you kidding me? "Uh oh, better not let Hasbro know they are doing something wrong or they might refuse us their products!" Give me a break. Sure, be happy that ML isn't dead, that's great news, but that doesn't mean people can't criticize. I think all the figures look great, but their figure selection is a kick to the face in some cases. Even if you don't want them, figures like Ultron, Enchantress, Gladiator, Jim Lee Jean, Bucky/Winter Soldier, etc. have been clamored for since ML was in metaphorical diapers. I haven't heard a single person ever once mention Terror Inc or Nuke or Lady Bullseye. And the fact that Marvel Universe got pretty much every single character that we've been begging for and we basically got not a single one (other than Deadpool) is obviously not going to sit well with many people. Unless they have an ace in the hole, I think some of their character selections for the "return" of ML were just plain poor. When people have to wikipedia who a character is, that's an indicator that it was a bad choice. I couldn't care less about offending Hasbro. But I would gladly buy every single figure shown except Hulk and Bagman. I'm not going to pretend I don't want figures that I like just because somebody else doesn't like them. Some people are going to want figures you don't want. We've already seen in this thread that some people don't want Ultron. Does that mean they shouldn't make him either? Anyways, we got Deathlok, Vengeance and Maestro before Loki and Kingpin, so I don't see why we can't get Bi-Beast and Terror Inc.
  3. If this is a slap in the face, please slap me again and again Hasbro. It hurts so good!
  4. They look great, I hate that we have to choose...I would honestly buy all of them but Hulk and Bag Man. Madrox and Constrictor are perfect, hope those two make it for sure. And there's nothing wrong with remaking characters if they're better than the old ones. Deadpool and especially Black Widow both look like improvements on the ToyBiz versions.
