  1. Yeah i dont read DC either, all I ever see is Infinaty Something or other?? BatMan in 20 diffrent comics. Yeah Im not willing to dish out $13.80 for one DC Character that looks like every one else with a different head. I just get the Ones I like.
  2. Oh i know what DCUC is all about, shoddy QC, impossible to find figures, high prices, articulation on par/below that of even Hasbro MLs and I LIKE DCUC. Please don't ever use excuses like prices of DC cuz ML Foom series was way outta line to start with and as far as availability goes, Hasbro has given us terrible product or did you already forget Nemesis wave? Hasbro can't paint or shade anything and their articulation is so shoddy you should be ashamed of even mentioning DCUC in the same category. Need another refresher? How bout Target series Black Spiderman. What kind of spidey can't freaking move his hands to shoot webs? Overall I would have to say DCUC has taken all of the stumbling blocks of Hasbro and perfected on their ideas from Toybiz concepts. The only complaint I have with them is I would prefer more hand variations. DCUC and Hasbro are in 2 different leagues, hasbro happens to be in the minors waiting to be called up to play. ML Foom wave had a nice excuse, most of the figures were on the large scale(much larger then any normal ML/DCUC these days for sure, minus She Hulk anyway, and Sampson and Absorbing Man were about normal size if not a tad bigger) and the paint on a good bit of those figures were good as well, and Foom himself is bigger then any DCUC C&C except maybe Chemo. Nemesis wave huh? yeah Beast is crap kinda(a wash would fix his looks but the artic is lame on the legs, swivel is needed more so then double knees) Nova is crap cause of the plastic colors and no sculpted detail, normal Punisher is bland(camo is great though) Daredevil is easily the BEST Daredevil released to date, Black Bolt may have Hasbro articulation and slap hands but he's on par with DCUC, Tigra's a bit scrawny and the hasbroticulation hurts her but other wise she's a nice looking female, and Nemesis is a nice figure as well, also this wave was sculpted and budgeted out before they got their game together. Target Wave Spidey, why does he need the classic hand pose? the Symbiote Spidey didn't use webbing that way, least not when i've seen it, uses it the same way Venom does, with a fist lowered somewhat and the webs coming out from the back of the hand/wrist(true he doesn't come with a fist so it is kinda is a moot point but still) As for articulation as a whole, if you take most HML and DCUC and count em they add up to about the same(HML's easily winning with the new 2 packs though) so thats also a moot point. HML 2 packs on a whole are better then DCUC now. you call that an excuse? an extra inch or so justifies adding 4 extra bucks? i dont mind paying 15 bucks for a fig, but im not going to let and extra inch in height be my reason for doing it. as far as your two pack statement...dont see it. as far as articulation goes...dcu aint the best, but hasbo aint either! if it wasnt for some of the old TB molds(which they use incorrectly imo) MLs would be totally crap! i dont perfer dcu over ml, i just perfer dc over marvel. Extra inch or so in height, and much more mass overall = much more plastic, when oil and materials were sky high, how hard is this to understand? Whats DCUC's excuse though? cause wave 6 and 7 sell like hot cakes and places can't get rid of em? Is that why wave 9 is so under produced? It's true hasbro reuses the havoc/marvel etc body a LOT and in most cases it works, but in wave 1 of the two packs they had Ult Cap and Fury, both with double knees and elbows, and Fury's coat and arms were completely new(the rest was as well kind of since Punisher hadn't been released yet) Ronin has double elbows and knees, that new Wolverine had double knees and elbows and only thing reused on him was the torso from Ult Wolverine, hell the only figures in wave 1 with single joints were Elektra's elbows and Thing(and even thing got a much nicer paint job) Wave 2, lots of reuse but all fitting, and the only single joint is once again the female elbows, IM is a whole new mold with fantastic articulation. (WM exclusive 2 packs are still crap though, sure the XMen movie ones have nice Cyke and Wolvy head sculpts but other then that more reuse, and the first WM exclusive packs only one they got right is Domino) HML IS winning the articulation race now, you can try and deny it all you want but its true. And like i said even most of the lower amount of artic HMLs still have the same PoA as DCUC, they just work differently. As for paint on a whole, DCUC has more, is that better though? its arguable, in some cases more paint would help Hasbro's sculpts but in others they don't need more paint. And please, don't bring up reusing TB molds as a bad thing, other wise DCUC would be nothing but a lost cause since at least way more then half of the line is reuse. DCUC is a great line, just seems like some DC fans are blinded by it cause they just now finally have a good line. HML has a long list of failures, a lot of HML1/2/3 for example(3 was when they started to get the hang of the line though) but in the long run DCUC and HML are on equal footing or HML is in the lead by a hair. whats dcu's excuse for what? dcu figs have always been 13 bucks. hell...EVERYTHINGS AT LEAST 13 BUCKS! i just see a lot of marvel goers holding on to that sad a** excuse that hasbro had for upping the price on MLs like a security blanket. why is wave 9 so hard to find? ill answer that when you tell me why ML 6, 7, and 8 were so hard to find.(sh*t happens my brotha) you can fool yourself into believing that hasbro's MLs are ahead of mattel's DCUs if you want, and its your right, but a hml only stands a chance with an old TB body. crazy thing is this: a line that has 10 waves, 2 con exclusives, 6 two packs, and a cartoon line(public enimies) all using the same body molds, is showing no sign of "falling off" , and you somehow figure that theyre loosing the race? actually...why are we even debating this? whats the real topic of this thread? seeems that weve just jacked this thread, huh?(lol) Yeah DCUC is the new ML, its coming up. But I think as a whole ML is still more popular. Just go on ebay and the market for ML is about 5,000 items for sale. DCUC is about 2,000 items, so ML is still better Because of Marvels Fan Base. But DCUC is doing good for themselves. well, thats not surprising seeing that marvel has more figs anyway. wait? did you say since marvel's fan base is bigger, that makes MLs better?...( i think that i need to sit..) if you look at most people's trade/sell list on any board, you'll find a sh*t load of MLs for sell. the fact is, a lot of people jut like action figures...period. of course you have the die hards out there, but alot of people collect out of impulse wants. i'll use myself as an example. most people figure me to be a DC "die hard", or to better put it, a batman fanboy. the fact is...i just like figures! dont get me wrong, as a character....im batman all the way! but im not going to buy, or make excuses for any of the of the B.S. story lines, or product thats out there. i like marvel. i like comics. thats why i was heavy into marvel legends!(plus they were articulated) but over half of the characters that were released i only bought out of boredom, to get a BaF, or because there was nothing else out there.(basicly boredom) thats the same with DCUC. i dont like every character that mattel choses to make, its just the fact that for once, i can actually build at least 88% of a group. weather it be the teen titans, or the freakin c listers like the metal men, i still have the option. but im not committed to DCU figures only. a lot of marvel fans act as if they cant be honest about a good action figure. maybe some of the stuff that is said about DCU figs is really how they feel, but a lot of people are just haters. if you go to both boards, read some of the post. marvel collectors compare MLs to DCUs a lot more than DC collectors compare DCUs to MLs....why is that? Same here. I like 6" Super hero figs. I'm a big marvel fan, but I'll grab up DCUC if I think the fig is cool (or the CnC). Yeah I have every thing Bat Man from the DCUC. That last comment was not me saying wich is the better, I was talking Numbers.
  3. Yeah around these Parts they moved them to the clerance isle, but remaind the same price with a red tag. We dont get $2.50 a figure until After christmas, and if their is an abundance of figures they will all a sudden disaper. They send them to another store to sell.
  4. yes they were. I believe "internal customs" were the words used by Hasbro to refering to them. I'm guessing they did it to just show the characters and then they would change them. This is Hasbro after all none of their products end up looking like their prototype, which is sometimes is good and sometimes well you know the rest...... Me personally I would rather they release Titanium Man and Crimsom Dynamo shown in the leaked pics alas c'est la vie. Hell Yeah They would look cool in Iron Man Display. all I have right now is the Iron Monger, and a custom Green Gobline Armor.
  5. as hell! She remindes me of this wench that used to follow me around in high school, prank call me, and throw stuff in my locker. (To this day i still dont know how she got into my locker, mybe she was in good with the crazy Ex Navy Janitor). Any way every time i look at that hidouse sue figure I look over my shoulder in fear that that crazy wench might be their. Damn you Hasbro for those Tramatic Flash Backs!
  6. Well.. What i meant by new pics was: 5 new tasks, not the same as the first challenge. You know like wolverine trying to open a can food with his claws or something?

  8. Im in So what do I have to Do? The same Pics? Or is this a new one? I hope its a new one.
  9. No doubt. Can't wait to get my own. FFClassic Sue had a great head sculpt but the overall articulation was awful. Luckily I already built my Shield army on the first wave. I can get through this one only buying one of each pack. Don't care for the Stealth IM, but I do want the new women's heads. Well when you get that stealth IM, go ahead and throw another contest but this time give it more time than just 5 posts. may be like 10, but 10 each from diffrent members.
  10. Your friend must of never heard of ebay. Other wise he could have made at Least $600. Poor guy. Your instant collections are kind of Strange.... But I guess some people are savy like That.
  11. Plus Anti-Venom, Skrulls, Brood (Skrull/Brood 2 pack), Sabertooth, Red Hulk, Zombie Hulk and the upcoming Abomination. I also use the MS Elektra, but only with FO DD (since he's big enough to stand next to her when she has the split legs on and look normal). I also use Green Goblin on his glider,(not holding That huge Battle Damaged Spider Man), She hulk looks good: No Fugly Face like the ML She Hulks, and the moon Night: I modified mine a bit with the ML moon Night Head, Boots and Cape.
  12. Man just got my Iron man 2 Pack and boy does my iron man suck a$$ right out of the package. with all my luck i got a damn loose torso. I guess its realistic tony stark from his drunk days. I try to stand him up straight and he just slumps over like he has to puke. any way i already orderd a replacment huh $30 down the drain.
  13. The Blob u can snag fo less than $40, But the red hulk is going for about a $100 Right now u might have to wait a long time for that to lower. This is because the Redhulk wave was a target exclusive, and was so hard to find. All I could find with in a 3 hour radius was a Black spider man in about 30 Targets.
  14. My wal-mart had about 15 left in the clerance, even though they were priced the same. They made room on the shelves for something else. Any way my walmart is always moving crap around, and the next time i went they disapeard. they probably shipped them to another store to sell.
  15. Yeah That was the first thing i Noticed when i opend it. Talk about false advertisment. At least the arm on mine didnt fall off. I sold the incomplete base any way.
  16. That Dude is the Kree Soldier, and he is out selling every other character on Ebay. Some were around $25-$30 for that one figure.
  17. Cool well then I never noticed wave 4, and wave 3 was scarse around here to then.
  18. Cool well then I never noticed wave 4, and wave 3 was scarse around here to then.
  19. You know that would be the most logical choices, and these example would definatly save this wave. Not to mention sale out in retail. But come on we are talking about hasbro here, and i agree with you on that Cable. We have yet to get a decent head and face sculpt, Toybiz had a Jay Leno Chin, Hasbro had a tiny head that did not look any thing like cable. I garantee we will be suprised by the choices but... not in a good way.

  21. Wasn't the Whatt if Captain America Armor one. I only saw one in some random wall-mart on a buisness trip, right when they were released. I could tell they had just shelved them: Super stocked. Only one Captain America Armor. I think they made them rare.
  22. lmao whats so funny? because all people selling on ebay are "scalpers" or "resellers"? well, thats kinda funny. but what i meant was OVERPRICING scalpers. i thought that was obvious. He meant the analogy: "Holding Our Figures for Ransome Money" It was cool, but you ruined it.
