  1. I really, really want a large Sauron too. Even if it's a Comic Con exclusive. I was really hoping we'd get a BAF of him in a 2009 wave. I'm totally bummed Hasbro has scrapped the BAFs. They were a great inovation and lead me to buy a lot of figures I wouldn't have otherwise. Their figure quality has improved recently and I've been looking forward to Marvel Legends. I hope Hasbro rethinks the BAF thing. I might have to go back to calling them Has-blo.

  2. I'll ask the Hasbro rep today about BAF's being cancelled, but I can't imagine they are. It's a brilliant marketing idea to make sure a lot of people buy all the figures, even ones they would otherwise pass on. BAFs make people completists. Production may cost a little more, but Hasbro sells a lot more figures. There's no reason to abandon the BAF.

     

    And back OT, I would like a big monster BAF. I'd even be cool with Hasbro spreading it over two FF waves. That last FF wave was pretty weak and I'm not happy with the FF 2-packs that are coming out. They are using those lame cartoony heads for Reed and Sue. Ben has a pin head and Johnny has that lame hip articulation.

  3. I am going to this on Friday, the 25th. Can't wait to hear what Hasbro has planned for 2009. Also, did anyone notice their is a planned event with Toybiz to talk about "what could have been" and what direction they planned to go with Marvel Legends. That should be very, very interesting. Bet they tell us all kinds of bs to make us cry just cuz they can.

     

     

    I wonder if they're going to show us the X-Jet. That's the biggest thing they had planned that I wanted. The mini-henchmen were a useless idea and I'm glad they didn't get to do that. In scale or don't bother, that's my motto.

  4. Hasbro has so far refused to confirm or deny the plans for the 3 3/4 line. For the Indiana Jones line they said they were intentionally making the figures in scale with GI Joe, so I don't see why they wouldn't do the same for Marvel.

     

    The only issue for me is the degree of articulation. If the Marvels have the same poseability as the new Joes, with more range of motion in the elbows, then I might just be a completist. If the have T-Crotches like the new DC line, then I will pass on the line.

  5. There's a lot of box sets I want -

     

    Wrecking Crew

    FA X-Men

    Alpha Flight

    Inhumans

    Imperial Guard

    Kree soldier (with a variety of outfits)

    Henchman

    New Mutants

    A decent, consistant FF

     

    On that note, I have bought quite a few FF figures but I have yet to find a cohesive group in consistant outfits. I like the first Jessica Alba Invisible Girl, the first flamming Torch, House of M Thing and ML Mr. Fantastic. I don't have a non-flamming Johnny Storm. I'd really like a well articulated, well detailed, uniform FF team with non-cartoony, non-anime faces.
