  1. Tigra arrived yesterday. Opening the box, yes, she is quite orange. Once I had her out of the packing though and managed to work her knees loose, I was totally fine with the color. She is a cool figure of a character I always liked. The color works for me. The black stripes pop. The legs look really good and are quite posable. The happy face seems a bit small but the growling face seems perfect. I am quite happy with Tigra. She's posing with my West Coast Avengers at the moment.
  2. Well now that is some mighty welcome news. From some of the press I was getting the impression this might be the end for Spider-Man in the MCU. I'm glad it's not.
  3. She is a well done figure. Her left foot is a bit stuck though and the spats doesn't give me enough room to wiggle it loose.
  4. That is a very good looking figure. She was the one that almost got me to buy the A Force boxset.
  5. I'm assuming that white Vision is going to be coming out in classic colors, right?
  6. Looks like Hasbro may be revealing some more Legends tomorrow - https://hasbropulse.com/pages/1027-2021 Hopefully it includes Toad, because the Pulsecon was a little weak on new ML stuff, IMHO.
  7. So D'spayir, Knull and Vulcan and some repaints? I am a bit disappointed in the lack of new characters/figures. I know "leave them wanting more" is an entertainment adage, but not to the point your intended audience is disappointed. I at least wanted to see Toad. I'm sure they're reveal him soon, but it seems like this hyped event would be the right time to show off the new stuff rather than the re-releases. It's almost like Hasbro is trying to shift focus from 6 inch to 3 3/4 inch.
  8. Great looking figure. I was looking at my old one and she was way to inflexible. This one is a big improvement.
  9. This is some great news. I've been wanting a Toad since the first wave of Toy Biz Marvel Legends gave us that left over, low articulation 7 inch scale. Now we're getting a deluxe package one. I haven't seen it yet and I can't wait to pre-order it.
  10. I appreciate the side by side pics. I pulled out my old Tigra to see if I'm actually committed to my pre-order. While I do like the paint detailing on the nails and belt on the old one, her joints are pretty bad. The figure is also kind of lanky. I'm definitely going with the new one. I may paint her finger and toe nails though.
  11. I really like that they're doing a deep cut with Maggot. His power is pretty gross but he has a different look. I assume he'll come with two big rubbery maggots that are bendable. These leaks have been great. Hopefully we find out the BAF soon.
  12. I have to say, though I never cared about the armored Spider-Man character, that is a good looking figure. I pre-ordered Hammerhead and Shocker. I'm on the fence about that one.
  13. No legs? I'd be up for Bushmaster or Bonebreaker, to flesh out the bad guy teams.
  14. Not that I'm interested in ordering, but why couldn't Hasbro take another batch of orders? They have the molds and apparently that's one of the big expenses. The next batch would have a lot more profit for them since the molds are already done and don't have to be paid for again. They could run it for a month, take a bunch of orders and buy a wheelbarrow to carry all the cash they'd make.
  15. If Havok is part of this wave, a classic FA version is the one I'd want. I know we've gotten him before but I'd like to have him with the higher quality standards Hasbro has been mostly delivering lately.
  16. It was smart of them to leak Siryn first. She's been on a lot of people's wishlists so they get immediate fan support from the "rumor". They get that from Jay when they do something with US Agent. We comic genre fans make it easy for them. We like doing polls and wishlists. Any other market area they have a hard time getting quality feedback. When someone is in the mall and gets asked for a few minutes to help a marketing company by doing a survey, most people say no. Not us. We tell them exactly what we like and what we want. Can you see that with shoes? Has a shoe buyer ever made a top 20 list of unmade shoes they want? I doubt it. We do that all the time. So they know some of us, including me, want Siryn. They get immediate, vocal fan approval without us even knowing which costume they're going with. That's some good marketing.
  17. See, the release of Shang-Chi was an experiment. They were testing the waters. The waters passed. Now a more traditional MCU release plan will happen since they can see the box office is there. Black Widow opened relatively well and Shang Chi beat a weekend record. Theater only will probably continue, unless of course there is another wave.
  18. I definitely want Siryn. Darwin I can pass on. Whether I get him depends on who the BAF is. I know people are pulling for Blob, but I think Spiral could use an update. What they did back in the day was quite impressive but she could use an update. I know a BAF of her might be odd since she isn't a large character but with the 6 arms and accessories, I could see them doing her as a BAF to do her right.
