  1. I think that was a great time to get into X-men. The team was dangerous and strange. And the buildup of anti–mutant sentiment was playing out in the most interesting ways. Reading before then, X-men had always been more of a superhero comic. They went into space a lot, they fought villains, they smashed jets all the time. Then came God Loves, Man Kills, and Dazzler: The Movie, and they just took off with this idea that the public was very divided on mutants, and that people were starting to retaliate against their public presence. It made the whole world a dangerous place for the X-men. An
  2. Initially I thought the hair was wrong, too. But it's a lot closer than you might think to the image here––the image that is their obvious basis for the design of the figure. Rogue doesn't wear this costume in exactly this way in the Uncanny X-men at any point. She gets the outfit from the costume maker that gave Spider-man his alien costume (at the end of Secret Wars I the X-men play around with the costume maker briefly), but when the X-men arrive back from Secret Wars she already has a different look, with the orange tunic. Later, she'll have a green pantsuit, and then she experiments for a
  3. I have the Gamora figure in hand, and I like it pretty well. Though it does have tiny feet. Really undersized. Like the other new ones, it doesn't stand up on its own very well. It is, though, one of the figures that really benefits from the emphasis on unique sculpts. Her armor is very detailed, and she has a great face and hair. This version of Gamora has not had a chance to shine in the comics––I think in part because the Guardians are hot enough property now that they have to be kept in this IP–driven narrative stasis. Gamora when she wore the Guardians uniform was a much more dynamic
  4. With carded pics of Wave 2 already showing up on the website, I wonder if Wave 2's release isn't too far off.
  5. The next wave has shown up on Taobao, btw. Yondu, Ms. Marvel, Spider-man Noir, Ulik, Triton, the original Iron Man suit...so they should show up on ebay in not too long. The head on the Marvel NOW Ms. Marvel looks really out of proportion.
  6. It's weird but, looking closely at the picture, I suddenly realize that for the Spider-man Noir figure they somehow got the 3d star off the from of the Ultimate WWII Captain America buck.
  7. You just don't like Emma so much, right? Or are you one of the people who refuses to pay above retail for the figures? I'm not accusing you of anything, I really don't remember your context for that opinion.
  8. They didn't reduce the articulation on her at all. She has the torso, arms and legs of the X-23 figure (and X-23's belt), and aScarlet Witch's hands and feet. The headsculpt is unique and the hair is a softer rubber. I believe Emma has shown up packaged at toys shows at least once. I think Toyfair 2 years ago? or last 2013 SDCC? We've had several hints in the past indicating that Emma Frost was manufactured a long time ago, back in the MU days, and she has just been waiting on a release, like the other figures in her original 3-pack. I didn't ever feel that there was a risk she would end u
  9. Watch the racism. Just what is your problem with me?
  10. I thought the Chameleon figure looked pretty decent in the displays at Toy Fair, but having the figure in hand it makes almost no impression at all. And with the diminished posability, due to the new torso, it's a total gyp. Emma Frost, though the Taobao figures I got of her come without the cape (generally these castoffs are sans accessories), stands out very well on the shelf with the MU figures. They really painted her well. Her costume is pearlescent and the face is exceptionally well-done. I'll probably continue collecting particular figures I like, and ones that I think I can salvage
  11. I went and got some of the figures from Taobao. All the new ones besides Korg, who really didn't interest me. Northstar and Colossonaut are fine. Emma Frost looks great. Fantastic painting, a very gravure, glamorous face, well-done hair...different tones of blue for the eyeliner and the lipstick. It looks far less awkward than a lot of the white lipstick variants people have tried on Emma Frost toys and statues in the past. X-men Deadpool is pretty fun. It's the Deadpool figure we know from XMO:Wolverine. The disappointing one is Chameleon, I'm afraid. The arms and legs are the one
  12. Blu rays are still popular. But TV shows are a harder sell on Blu-ray, I think, because of the high price. You can see that in anime. Fewer anime series are making it onto blu-ray. But I believe film is still doing well there. And I know what you mean! I like holding the box for the movie in my hand. I don't like just having it all on a computer hard drive somewhere, or out in the cloud. My local Target has some JL/Perez Beast figures on the pegs. No Shanna or Vulture or Armored Daredevil yet. I figure them appearing on the pegs is the only way I'll end up buying the latest wave.
  13. There is a ball joint, but the area around the necks of these figures extend, and the heads themselves aren't bored out enough to allow for any movement but side-to-side. The figures can't look up or down, even a little bit. They fit so tightly, they only look left and right.
  14. I got some of the new figures from China. Bishop, both Sandmen, and both Beasts. Sandman is very fine. No complaints. The new figures are very lightweight. The sculpts do look really good. The painting is not terrible, but it's all flat colors, with no shading or definition. Doesn't look quite like Marvel Universe figures in that respect. Otherwise, all the things we've been grumbling about are true. I admit the sculpts are better, and more detailed than I'd given them credit for. But the articulation is taken waaaaaay down on these figures. No torso, no waist, very limited neck (t
