  1. Thigh cut is the only way to go right now. It's the comfortable medium of providing max articulation while sacrificing as little aesthetics as possible. It just is. You look at a bunch of these import companies trying to do all these innovative things with the articulation to make it look "better" but in my experience the end product always ends up worse. In the case of companies like Tomashi Nations and SHF the joints are often awkward angles with pieces held on with glue or the design leads to some of the material used having to be so thin or brittle in places that the joint becomes prone to breaking. Yep, it seems like nothing works quite as well as the old thigh cut. I agree it does look bad on the skin tight spandex characters but the best thing they can do right now is try to hide it in paint and sculpt detail whenever at all possible. The examples of Juggernaut and War Machine only work because Juggs is so big they could add extra material and WM is so complicated it can be absorbed into the detail. I can't imagine this technique would work with someone like Spider-Man or Jean Grey who both are pretty much naked bodies with paint on them.
  2. Hell no! If anything I think they should reveal it now do some sort of lay-a-way plan where we can start making payments now (based on what your financial standings and future may be) and possibly have it paid out by the time the thing hits production. I think more people would be interested in that format rather than having to fork over a large amount of cash from the start. It's not like some of these other start-up groups who basically have to do a Go Fund Me just to get the capital to begin production of the figures. Hasbro has the cash now and if the customer does drop out and decide to no longer pay on the product they just lose whatever they've put into it. Of course, we should also be able to pay the thing off from the jump if we so please. I think this would really appeal to the people who still want the thing, but aren't quite sure what their financial situation is going to be when this hysteria is over.
  3. Now that's just cool. ML and Joe's are gonna be in perfect scale and I hope Hasbro allows that the molds can be shared between the two lines. Now if we can somehow get DC to award a 6.5 inch line to someone like Jazzwares we might get some kind of action figure renaissance where everyone can play together.
  4. This thing keeps looking better and better the more I see it. And I just got confirmation my set has shipped. Of course it's not the version of CD we all wanted, but if you're gonna do the wrong figure you might as well do it damn good. Shame bout how bad that Yelena figure turned out though. I'm a completest though so I'm just glad I only have to get one.
  5. The most ironic (moronic) thing is that Kibblesmith is the typical, much detested, root of all evil, 40 Year Old White Dude who they appointed (anointed) to appeal to today's diversified and marginalized youth. Anyone who has tried to created their own comic (and most of us have) knows this book and these characters reek of something created by someone in their early teen years and they got dusted off and renamed with contemporary buzz words at the first chance the creator was given the green light to "create something new". This reminds me of Steve Buscemi's character from 30 Rock.
  6. Doubt it, but on the bright side the comic will die no later than issue three, guaranteed. The dark side (especially for comic shop owners) is that this book and the new Children of the Atom are gonna be fully non-refundable cuz Disney doesn't want it to be known how poorly they might (and most probably will) sell.
  7. Not my cup of tea, and for what Tamashii Nations typically charges for their products it's not something I'm even going to entertain purchasing, but this is still something cool to see.
  8. Agreed, I know she's an important part of his storyline, but if they were reaching for some female representation there were just so many more options to go with. Siryn, Feral and Copycat just to name a few. Still her design is quite risque (as far as ML goes recently, anyway), and I'm interested how they do it. Probably just gonna be a straight repaint of the new Scarlet Witch figure. As far as which 2nd DP they're gonna do, I'm gonna take a huge guess and say it'll be the Secret Secret Wars DP, with a hologram shield instead of a BAF piece.
  9. I really can't defend this wave all that much. It's a movie wave, and the first wave of a first movie of a franchise. There really isn't that much movie based material to work with, so whaddayagonnado? Gone are the days where they can get away with only one or two movie figures in a wave so they had to did deep. At least it's nowhere near as bad as the Captain Marvel wave. Sure, this isn't the version of Dynamo we all wanted but it's big and it's new and it's comic accurate. I'm all in for a Ursa Major though. We can only hope that if this movie does well (and I think it will) that they'll do a REAL "emergency" 2nd wave and maybe do some of the characters you named and an Ursa BAF, or even better, a Titanium Man. The problem with a 2nd wave is that there would be even less movie material to work with. Maybe an in-shape version of Hopper......er, I mean Red Guardian with an actual masked head.
  10. Bad Ass figure (aside from the static gun, WTF?). It's nothing major or ground breaking but it's as good as I was hoping it would be. I still don't have one in hand but it looks good here. Now, let's get busy on a comic based modern Star Lord, Hasbro. I promise, we have enough MCU versions to last us through the next movie.
  11. On board with any and all of these but aside from maybe Diablo I really didn't see any representation from the Mystical corner of the Marvel Villains Universe. I have a few contributions of my own. 1. Blackout - classic Danny Ketch GR villain 2. Baron Mordo - comic version 3. Deathwatch - another GR villain 4. Bullet - Daredevil villain 5. Blackheath - the jury is out whether they would actually do this one 6. Mephisto - see above 7. Mister Fear - DD villain 8. Hood - he's tangled with everyone 9. Nightmare - I think he was supposed to show up in the cancelled GR series 10. Iron Patriot - the first one was bad 11. Lilith - tangled with GR and Doc Strange 12. Destroyer - 3.75 scale did it and did it well 13. Super Patriot - before Walker was US Agent 14. Ironclad - a BAF worthy Hulk villain 15. Bi-Beast - people have requested this for years. How did Thor Ragnarok pick up on this and ML never has. Honorable mention: Ragnarok - just pack in an extra head sculpt (half robot) with another figure to be swapped onto the Thor 80th figure.
  12. Huh-Huh-Huh-Haaaahh! (Oh, how I wish I could channel the great Jimmy Carr's laugh through text form). Or maybe their powers are something no one can fully understand. They could be anything or absolutely nothing at all, depending on which way you look at them. Heh, I could do this all freakin' day.
