  1. I'm good with this idea. Depending on how many my store gets (we actually only have one) I'll get as many as I can, short of becoming a douche hoarder that I hate, and see if anyone here missed out. That's assuming I can land any at all.
  2. Well, not sure if you read much of the comics but it is both written and drawn more geared towards a younger crowd, and based on this it seems the show will be similar. Not necessarily bad, just different.
  3. Best symbiote figure by far. Now can we just get a decent looking Venom (not in monster form)?
  4. Not to degrade the custom effects done by @Gigantor. It's some great work, and it looks good, but I have a problem with the kind of effects that should have been included. The complaint about the effects is a valid one, but what is being mostly suggested as effects that should have been included (namely, the flamethrower effect) is not actually indicative of his powers. Pyro is not a flame thrower, nor were his tubes and backpack meant to be used offensively as flamethrowers. Many artists have drawn him as such, but it's just incorrect. It's basically a waste of his powers, cuz he could just use the flamethrower offensively without the need for powers. He is a fire manipulator. He actually only needs the tanks and hoses to create the smallest of flames to start with and oxygen, then he can make the flame any size and shape that he wants, even away from his body. He's been shown to make fire rings, walls and domes around himself and others for protection. He's made cyclones and other constructs like giant Firebirds, dragons and other animals, almost like a fire version of Green Lantern. If anything, what should have been included was those kind of effects, with maybe a small starter flame to be plugged into the end of the hose. Just a pet peeve of mine.
  5. I'll start out by saying I'm no expert in She-Hulk history and exactly what happened to make her She-Hulk, but I don't think they did the whole admission into the hospital route when they did the transfusion. I'm pretty sure he broke into the hospital and did the transfusion in hopes that his blood would heal her body from a massive injury. Even if that wasn't the case, they could still tell the story in this fashion. When your talking extraordinary abilities and superheroes and genius level intellects with secret labs and extreme experiments then there's really no need to do the typical everyday government regulated hospital thing. Am I right? All I know is it was a damn good comic when Byrne was at the helm and I'd much rather like the fun, light hearted She-Hulk rather than the heavy handed feminist version we have now. Rick and Morty seems to balance on a very fine line between those two worlds, so I have high hope these writers can do the same with this show. I have no doubt that Disney is up to the task to make this work visually. As far as the actor, I'm not too familiar with her body of work. She's good on Orphan Black, but that's a character she took on from it's inception, so part of her character and development is part of he own personality. Whether she's able to take an established character and properly play that role is the definition of a good actor. She certainly doesn't look the part, but I guess neither is Kristin Ritter as Jessica Jones, so that can be overcome. I'll remain optimistic. Hey, at least they didn't cast the other Brie as was originally rumored.
  6. Errr....what! Ummm.....longtime fans? Huh, I'm sure all three of them will be ecstatic. Let's not act like this book is something it isn't fellas. Nobody asked for this and the next person that says "Man, I wish they would reboot a marginally successful comic series based on those relatively lukewarm supporting characters The Eternals that never really met expectations.", will be the first. And I'm sure Stan Lee and Jack Kirby are just looking down with baited breath on the prospect of yet another one of their creations being turned into another politically driven train wreck at light speed. Let's all just call it for what it is and recognize that this book was just supposed to try and cash in on the boost of interest the movie was going to be bringing to the characters. Unfortunately (or fortunately) the plague is gonna spoil those plans.
  7. Best figure of the bunch, by far. It is a cool figure I thought we'd never get. Loved the role she played in the movie. It wasn't Domino by any means but she played a good part, whatever it was. Movie wouldn't have been the same without her.
  8. Fabulous....Just as the Venomized gimmick was starting to run it's course, now we get this. Cheap pops and an alternate cover collector's wet dream. That's today's Marvel. Oh, and looks who's behind this handy work. Veeeery creative. Ever heard the term "Jumped the Shark"?
  9. Well, since he is basically a man who can move in and out of time and reality as he pleases, I'm thinking he'll probably appear several times as any number of his personas (Rama-Tut, Iron Lad, Immortus, Scarlet Centurion, etc.) and could play bad guy in any number of movies until he has a final ultimate confrontation with the Avengers or the FF. He could reveal in the final showdown that it had been him the entire time creating all the chaos to lead up to the grand fanale.
  10. Thanks for that image. Now I'm gonna have to deal with a constant reminder of Trevor Slatery haunting my thoughts on infinite loop.
  11. Damn, I hope Hasbro drops all this Venomized garbage before it gets as monotonous as the comics did. But for all you fans of this gimmick, fear not. I'm sure Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, Wolverine and others are on their way.
  12. Actually sounds kinda interesting, but at this point the bar isn't set that high. Worth giving it a shot though. I do like the lineup of some forgotten characters and some little used characters. Seeing as the team has no real heavy hitter on the team, right now would be the perfect time to return his powers to what they were when he was an original member of Cable's X-Force, rather than these lame, generic, overall athlete powers he's had for the last decade or so. All teams need a "strong guy". Edit: regarding Warpath as the brute strength.
  13. I think that New Warriors train wreck is supposed to be release as a collected novel. Luckily, they have the plague to blame when the thing tanks.
  14. Had to go cold turkey on POPS!, but this hits me just right in the 90's nostalgia square. Let's see how long it takes Hasbro to do one. Toybiz's was pretty good, but as with most of those figures, it's looking mighty old and dated these days.
