  1. I've posted elsewhere already that as for the Loki he looks good alone but is terribly out of scale with other figures and lacks articulation.
  2. Imagine being a Sculptor and getting the "your services are no longer required" notice because they only need one or two molds.
  3. and the pictures posted to prove me wrong just prove me right. Loki is thin, he has always been thin and almost frail. It's a part of his story, his character. Still, and again, my problem isn't the sculpt per se, but the $18 for a poorly poseable figure. People on these boards make it so miserable to try and help others out.
  4. I don't mind the costume, I mind the articulation and the fact that he would be 6'5" and about 300 lbs.
  5. If you want to buy it then buy it, don't give me crap for trying to help. Although you could show one of these "comic accurate" images.
  6. What does being an asgardian have to do with it? And yes, he is laufey's son. But I'm gonna go by how he appears in comics, since that's the whole point of this. Quite frankly that was another problem that I didn't really hit on... he doesn't seem like Loki, he seems like a bad@ss wearing a Loki costume. There is no sense of the trickster her.
  7. Toy biz one is one of my favorites... But it's always up to whomever is getting him, but he can't sit in a throne, the legs cross "indian style" He can't sit with his feet facing down, he can't even stand with his legs apart really.unless it's vertical at the hips. Also, it's Loki, he shouldn't be massive. But I was in love with the figure until I got him home.
  8. He has those legs that were on Cat Beast and Doc Samson that have no leg rotation so the only pose he can do is cross-legged. His head is on a ball joint and has very limited articulation and his hands are shaped to hold an accessory but nothing comes with him except for the shoulder hair that falls off if you look at it hard enough.
  9. It's from the Narnia figures. Narnia accessories and Heads are very useful in customizations.
  10. I love these passive aggressive comments, where the person apologizes over and over while insulting the person they're talking to. It's only a crappy toy when it's something they don't like. for instance... i hate the DC figures because they use the same body over and over again. He-man figures are terrible for that as well and they cost about ten bucks more per figure.
  11. Law of averages on that poll, we all had different number 1's, but probably had the same number 5's or 6's. Therefore those are weighted higher. It's also the danger that comes with trying to pick the underdog... everyone votes for at least 1 underdog.
  12. follow him and see where he goes. probably a comic book shop owner.
  13. That's sort of the point. If the only figure you ever owned was the Mcfarlane Spidey then he would be in scale because there's nothing to gauge him against. But once you have twenty figures of varying size putting them together starts to get silly.
  14. I base it on Captain America (face off version). I assume 6' 2" to 6'4" I picked up omega red the other day and compared the two and red is WAY out of scale. He's about as big as I would imagine a select figure to be. Cyclops (sentinel series) is too small in comparison. For a character that is supposed to be tall he seems to come in just under normal height for a super hero. Who do you use as the size standard?
  15. face off hulk, or the mr fixit from the hulk figure line.
  16. looks like the pics are from inside a comic shop. must just have a retailer in asia and is ordering them by the case. All these figures are available if you can bring yourself to pay for ten to twenty cases full of them.
  17. it's related to this series http://www.figurerealm.com/checklists.php?...214&SSID=36
  18. TRU in metairie La has thor figures. I got Loki and battle hammer thor. They're pretty cool. Clearly there isn't the number of iterations possible as Iron Man using only a few molds, but the molds are really nice and seem to be an advancement in toys. i.e. Loki's cloth is soft and easily moves with him, as does the material at thors hips. Only issue< i suppose, is the goofy weapons they come with. If these are only on the toys i am fine with them, but they have the potential to really 'power ranger' up the whole movie. oh, very important!!!! not all of them have good poseability so check before you buy. and for all you clever boys who want to say this has all been said before: please find something more constructive to contribute. there's an infection of people forcing others to validate what is essentially just free innocent kindness given to the forum.
  19. to be really honest, the complaint that toy biz already did all the good ones is moot anyways, since toys should be good enough for adults but aimed towards children and most of those figures were made five to ten years ago. there is a whole new crop of kids to market to. the real truth is this won't happen because kids can't afford hasbro prices now, let alone what they would try and charge if they re-released this line. it would be $20 per figure, the two packs are at $35. half of that is $17.50 so they would most likely make them $19.99 a piece. Consumers would only buy the ones they really want at that price and hasbro would blame them for not supporting the line. DEAD by wave 2 or 3 at best.
  20. what about the black backwards marvel girl? i had one and sold it for almost $100.
  21. two points: 1) it's easy to quit once you have what you want. after that it seems like you just don't want others to catch up. 2) DC figures are plain. that was the goal in the beginning because it was cheaper and allowed them to get a threshold in the toy industry without having to spend extreme amounts of cash to catch up to marvel. unfortunately the plain character molds from the early waves plus the incredible difficulty most regions have in getting the figures makes the series almost a moot point. p.s. the proliferation of single characters throughout the comic universe (wolverine, deadpool, batman) is good for spikes in sales but has turned many new and old fans away due to the tired nature of the character and the unbearable expense of trying to keep up. both marvel and DC now view comics as nothing more than advertisements for the characters in their movies. If you don't believe me you can look it up. it is in NO WAY a secret or hard to find stuff on. marvels view 10 years ago was that spiderman the movie made a billion dollars, which is more than every single spiderman related thing combined since the begininning of the character has made.
  22. i'm looking at ebay right now and seeing a bunch of genis vell. then i noticed i'm seeing a bunch of other figures from that same wave. so i'm wondering what figure would you say got bought just to be resold the most? War Machine unmasked wolverine genis vell mainly figures that aren't even rare except that people hold onto them hoping the value will someday go up, or are only valuable because people squirrel them away.
  23. Am i the only one who wants a Henry Gyrich figure? I think instead of Face off figures, with and without costume figures would have been a nice gimmick.
