  1. Hasbro's basic figures have always been listed at 6 inches despite standing at roughly 5.75. That's been the case with their movie basic figures, their comic basic figures, and now their game basic figures.
  2. The cover is alright. It goes in line with the previous cover for the first game.
  3. I think this would be an interesting concept, and it being used for repaints would mean the budget in other areas like accessories shouldn't suffer much. However, I agree that it should be something better than just pieces of cardboard. I think Hasbro could really take a page from Diamond Select's playbook and do them like the interconnected bases Marvel Select has done in the past. The Danger Room that came with the X-Men figures, or the Avengers Facility that came with the Civil War movie figures.
  4. Toxin's non-Hulked out form always struck me as Spider-Man-inspired, which would add to it being red and blue. And as for how he actually looks, well, I already posted actual artwork of the character being evidently dark blue. In this cover you can even see him contrasted to a character who is wearing black.
  5. All of these are form his mini-series, be it interior art or covers (with the exception of the image in the bottom right). His lower half and lower arms very much look like they're dark blue. And it doesn't look like it's a case of blue being used for reflective lighing in a black surface, since it's too much of his surface that is colored blue for it to just be ambient light. The image in the bottom right comes from his appearance in the game Spider-Man Unlimited. It's also worth mentioning that the color of his speech bubbles used to be blue, which would make sense if he's half blue.
  6. I wouldn't say you were completely off the mark. It looks like a weird combo between the two. Because this figure has the bulk of Brock Toxin, and the headsculpt as well, but Mulligan Toxin is the one that was red and blue, while Brock was red and dark red. "Okay, so. Mr. Hasbro, which of the two versions of Toxin do we use for this figure?" "Both."
  7. That Iron Man looks fantastic. It's tempting, but at the same time I try to look the other way when it comes to Figuarts due to their "only slightly smaller than ML" scale. Maybe I can hope Hasbro eventually does something similar to it.
  8. Yup, and Ultimate Spider-Man had a Halloween special featuring characters from some other Disney Channel show. But that's the extent of Disney making Marvel cross over with other properties. I always found it funny how people back in 2010 were so worried Disney was going to have Mickey and Donald run around with the Avengers, when it is Warner who has had the Looney Tunes cross-over with DC characters.
  9. Disney has never had Marvel crossover with any other I.P. under their umbrella in any major way. I don't see why would that change with Alien and Predator, especially in terms of crossing over with the MCU, which is a lot more airtight than the comics when it comes to doing its own thing and only that.
  10. Nobody is talking about a crossover movie between Marvel and Alien and/or Predator. I wasn't. And the announcement certainly doesn't either. The announcement isn't even about movies. Read the text. It's about Marvel making Alien and Predator comics. The wording makes it seem like the comics will be set in the I.P.'s own universe, but Finch's comment seems to indicate there could be a crossover.
  11. Disney has contributed to plenty of R-rated movies through their subsidiaries. Last year they released an R-rated movie (Stuber) through 20th Century Fox. Bob Iger has even come forward to say that people could expect Deadpool to remain R-rated. So I don't see where does this assumption come from.
  12. I'm not saying that he should be scrawny, just not overly-muscular. People can still have musculature and be lean, which is what I'd expect of Spider-Man, since he's a character known for speed and acrobacies. If you take John Romita's artwork as an example, which is this figure's main reference, he didn't draw Peter with either big or toned muscles. And the figure also doesn't really work for a modern Spider-Man since modern Spider-Man isn't looking like a body-builder either. I think a good example of a mid-20s Peter is the design for PS4 Spidey, especially since he even has a skin in which he's only wearing underwear. He has toned muscles, but he's still lean. On the other hand, the contour of this figure's legs and hips is like a mountainside.
  13. The running gag of the Superior Foes was that they were the Sinister Six despite being five people, so maybe this is Hasbro's own take on it. "They're the Sinister Six, but they are only five characters... aaand there are only four figures."
  14. Thank you, I was worried I had written an unbearable wall of text. Fair enough. I don't expect Hasbro to treat figures for new costumes or characters the way they do MCU proprietes (i.e. well in advance), but I think at the very least when it comes to popular characters (Iron Man, Wolverine, Captain America, Thor, etc.), they should be able to close the gap between a costume debuting and the figure getting made. I might be talking out of my butt here since I don't actually keep up with DC collectibles, but I always had the impression Mattel managed to pump up new looks and characters faster than Hasbro did for Marvel. I remember there being figures for the Rebirth versions of characters only a few months after they'd debuted in the comics, and the same happened with The New 52. Other topical costumes like Jim Gordon Batman, Zero Year Batman, Death of the Family Joker or Burnside Batgirl got figures roughly two years after their debut, which is still faster than Hasbro's average. But, hey. Now that Hasbro's reached a consistently good production quality average and they're doing definitive versions of classic and retro looks, it's only a matter of time before they reach the bottom of the barrel and will have to turn to topical and modern looks no matter what 😛
  15. I mean, Peter's strength comes from his super-powers, not his muscle workout. And even if he has tonned muscles, he is not supposed to have hams for legs.
