  1. I pre-ordered mine when it first became available. Hasbro is really knocking out my want list from a few years ago. Blink. A decent Mystique. Dr, Doom done right. Sauron. I cannot believe there is a Sauron sitting on my shelf staring me down. And now Alpha Flight. I didn't get that Puck back when because I was hoping something like this might happen. Thank you, Hasbro!!
  2. It makes sense the Punisher would steal and use a War Machine armor. He loves ordinance of all shapes and sizes. Why wouldn't he love a piece of military weaponry like War Machine?
  3. Looks like Dogpool has a little peg on the back of the scooter seat to help him stay in place. I wonder where it plugs into?
  4. I am totally pumped! I'm a big fan of the X-Men and FF characters and would love to see them done right and in the MCU. I've enjoyed some of the X-Men movies, but they really are not well done enough and too far afield from the comics for me. No offense to Hugh Jackman, but he was never really Wolverine. The gravelly voice worked sometimes. I just opened the new ML Wolverine figure and it's great. Short, ugly, hairy and extremely bad tempered looking. Wolverine was such a dick when he started in the comics. Too much Magneto and Mystique in the movies. Fassbender was great but I never thought they handled Mystique right. And that make up was so horrible. They took two of the most beautiful women in the world and made them look ugly. Mystique is hot. They put this disgusting crap on their faces. And it's an ugly blue they've chosen. I know the MCU is going to do it right. Hopefully Feige sticks around at Disney long enough to make sure it's the done the way it should be.
  5. It's funny. I was just looking at my Gambit with the cloth coat over the last few days. He's a well done figure but he does not look right next to Rogue. I figured they were due for giving us an updated one. Of course he would have the hard plastic coat instead of a cloth one. He looks good but that hair is a little anime.
  6. I'm hoping it's a brand new, not yet done in plastic, Serpent Squad figure. I like that they are peppering those in.
  7. That Man-Ape is great. I wonder if they made these after the movie came out? Hasbro doesn't seem to do a lot for the movies they don't expect to be huge. I suspect they were surprised by Black Panther's incredible success and had to scramble. Still, great job. Those figures look really well done.
  8. A) I really hope this doesn't mean Gunn is a pedophile. I have my doubts about Singer. B) This really sucks. Much like everyone else, I love these movies and really want to see the conclusion. I mean this sucks.
  9. Well if that's really the line-up then I'll be buying a set, including two extra Multiple Mans.
  10. I have the Hyrdra, AIM and Hand at this point. I'd like the Hellfire goons. That group has not gotten any ML love. I guess the costumes are too complicated for Hasbro.
  11. Does that Klaw figure just have a swivel waist with no torso aritculation? If so, disappointing.
  12. I missed where Hasbro said the ML 2-packs were being pushed back. I thought they were still on target for this Fall and that there are plans for further 6 inch products that will be announced.
  13. That would be awesome if this was some kind of SDCC 2-pack. I really want a Valkyrie. The Hasbro reps said at the NYCC though that there would not be any new MLs this year after the 2-packs.
  14. I would buy ML online if they released characters I want. I'm happy with the Deadpool I have, so I'd probably pass if he was the choice. I want all the characters they haven't made yet. I'll get new MLs anyway I can, so ordering online is not a problem. Hopefully there will be more than one a month, though.
  15. I agree with most of the review except for the Nova gold color, which I like better than if they had used yellow, and the Punisher character, which I think looks very badass. He's grim, his pants and boots particularly have great sculpts, and he looks very menacing holding a gun or rifle. He and Daredevil are my favorites from this wave.
  16. I really want to finish Alpha Flight. A 2-pack with North Star and Aurora would be a good start. I also want that FA Storm. She is a good looking figure. While I do want Lilandra and some Shi'ar fighters, I think her figure needs a little work. Hopefully she will be retooled before being released, in the very near future.
  17. I really want them all, except for the Gambit since I already have a couple of versions. My first choice would have to be that Samurai though. He looks quite cool.
  18. I'm in the 'prefers Hasbro' catagory. I never really liked the Toy Biz version. His body had awkward proportions and his face looked odd. The Hasbro version is a little small and I'm not sure what's up with his right hand, but he looks a lot better. The green paint also has a subtle metal quality that I like. I'm glad Hasbro gave me a version I like more, and now I'd like the Bro to fix Ultron, Toad and Scarlet Witch, at least.
  19. I'm also concerned about Iron Man's scale. The Heroes Reborn IM is quite a cool looking figure but he's a shrimp. What's even worse, he has a tiny head. There's no way that it looks like a helmet. Ultimate War Machine on the other hand does a very good job of looking like a guy in armor. I hope the upcoming classic IM captures that same feel.
  20. I wasn't a cheerleader in school or anything but Rah Rah Hasbro!! These latest figures have been really, really great. Yes there a few points of articulation that are missing and the Iron Man figures have been a little smaller than they should be, but otherwise there has been tremendous improvement since the first waves of Hasbro figures. Ares is great. Corssbones is great. King Hulk, Union Jack . . .they've all been great. I will buy each and every good 6 inch, ML scale figure that Hasbro makes. Their new figures have great detailing, great poseability, great paint apps, great paint washes, great proportion . . really just superlative figures. I am really happy with the new standard of Hasbro figures. Like I said, there are still a few points that could be improved on. Ultimate War Machine looks like a guy wearing armor. Heroes Reborn Iron Man doesn't. He's a little scrawny and his head is a little small. The detailing on him is great though. I also really liked the color selection on Vision. The green has a slightly metallic look that works for an android. That Ultimate Nick Fury may just be the best done ML, period. I just wish I knew what to do with him.
  21. I got mine today and he is great! I would also like to get a FA version, too but the AoA one is really well done. The paint is grat, the base figure is great - well done 'Bro! I also think the packaging is impressive. There are flames molded into the clear shell. I was expecting Sunfire to come in a small cardboard box. I'm surprised they put so much work into the box. As far as whether he's a villain, I'd go with hero. Yes he's a real jerk, but he has, sometimes at least, noble motives. He has answered the call to save the planet a couple of times.
  22. I don't think I'd really call that subtle sarscasm.
