  1. My biggest "want" is a redo of the Marvel NOW! Iron Man so one of my favorite suits can get a figure that is accurate to the comics and not half-assed.
  2. * Crimson Dynamo * Crimson Dynamo * Crimson Dynamo * Crimson Dynamo * Crimson Dynamo * Crimson Dynamo * Crimson Dynamo * Crimson Dynamo The BAF is Crimson Dynamo. And we still have a few spare Crimson Dynamos for the second wave.
  3. All the elements and details in the figure coincide with the Classic Armor. The hip pods, the position of the circles on the sides of the unibeam, the bigger cuffs, and the "underwear" portion looking more like a speedo than a boxer. I'd only say the helmet looks slightly more retro than I'd like to.

    Yeah, I'm aware of the workings of the industry and that Spider-Man is the cash cow. I just wish they'd throw fans of other characters a bone or two once in a while.

    Yeah... I know that Hasbro is making up for lost time, and I'm sure I'd be delighted if I were an X-Men fan. Even though I wish Hasbro shifted the attention from the X-Men and Spider-Man, I know that it's selfish on my part to basically wish fans of these characters got less figures (especially the X-Men, not so much for Spider-Man). As for the families of which characters I wish Hasbro focused on? The members of the Avengers that can hold their own waves. Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk and Thor. I know that all of these characters individually have gotten plenty of figures over the years, but they're mostly MCU-inspired, and their supporting characters and villains are often neglected. While Thor got a wave in 2017 and Cap two in 2016, the last Iron Man-centric wave happened six years ago, and the last Hulk-centric wave eleven years ago. As an Iron Man fan, I often feel jealous of the amount of characters from Spider-Man's corner that Hasbro pumps out every year with every Spidey-centric wave. Sometimes it feels like they're about to scratch the bottom of the barrel. I'd love to see at least one wave focused on Iron Man once in a while, so Hasbro can get their hands on his supporting cast and villains. War Machine, Rescue, Ironheart, Mandarin, Crimson Dynamo, Titanium Man, Controller, Spymaster, Whiplash and a big "etc" are figures waiting to get made. Iron Man himself is a near-infinite pool of equally important variants of the same character. In the case of Spider-Man, in order to get a version of the character in each wave, Hasbro has already resorted to flavor-of-the-month and obscure variants of Spider-Man. In general, I wish Hasbro focused on topical characters and modern versions of characters. Modern Loki, Pymtron, Extremis Iron Man, War of the Realms Thor, Modern Doctor Strange, Nadia Van Dyne and Robbie Reyes are some figures that come to mind.

    Weird that they're not in this gallery (and I only managed to get a good look at them in JayC's video), but I gotta commend again the Iron Man MK L / Iron Spider 2-pack. Finally they did these figures justice. I can only hope the Iron Man comes with plenty of accesories. He's already coming with the dual cannons, support blasters and a shield, but I'm really expecting him to come with the hand and armguard cannons, since those two seem to be the most iconic modifications for the suit, and they've been the base accessories for other MK L figures like the Hot Toys, S.H.Figuarts and Marvel Select figures. I feel like my biggest take-away from the MCU reveals are not the reveals themselves but the fact that Hasbro is opening up to the creation of figures of secondary characters and they're still revisiting older films like the first Cap movie, so I'm still holding out for a Marvel Legends of Whiplash, a revisited Iron Monger and pretty much any other supporting character and antagonist. I'm not a big X-Men fan so the only kind of comment I could make is that I wish they'd put some of that plastic to use in figures from other corners of the Marvel Universe. I hate to sound negative, but I do feel like Hasbro is neglecting other families of characters in favor of the X-Men, Spider-Man and the Avengers (though the latter is more like a catch-all umbrella). I should cap off with something more positive. Those figures of the Big Three look awesome and at the very least Iron Man and Cap are must-haves for me. Also, Infamous Iron Man!

    Scorpion hasn't been bonded to the Venom symbiote for nine whole years.

    I just found it funny that you pondered about what Scorpion might be wearing right now, and he happens to be back in the classic costume.

    You wanna know what does the Scorpion currently look like right now at this precise moment? Funny, isn't it?
  10. I doubt they went to court since Marvel Studios was allowed to use Wanda and Pietro, but they did make the dick move of shoving Quicksilver into _X-Men: Days of Future Past_ at the last second only so they would use the character first.
  11. Good to know that Hasbro is going to redeem their Iron Man MK L and Iron Spider with a 2-pack. I hope they not only include accessories (for Spider-Man, considering for Iron Man is confirmed), but also better metallic-like finishes.
  12. You don't need to go into yet another mindless "ugh PC ugh SWJ" rant. The MCU simply couldn't call them mutants because the term "mutant" is copyrighted by Marvel Entertainment, so when they licensed the cinematic rights of the X-Men to Fox (something that Fox will still hold until the merger comes through), that included the term "mutant."
