  1. I don't care much for Civil Warrior or Contest of Champions, but I have to admit I'm still debating with myself whether or not I should get this figure for the "Into the Iron Verse" section of my display, since this is half an alternate version of Iron Man. Maybe if I can find it loose for cheap on eBay...
  2. If they don't agree with you, that just means they do read comics. Wonderful how doing that can actually inform your opinion on them.
  3. lmao. The old geezers in here with the "Old man yells at a cloud" mentality who complain about things they only know about are not a good judge of quality. However, that being said, coming from a person who is actually up to date with modern Marvel... Avengers is definitely not a crowd-pleaser. Does that mean that Marvel should have stopped in the 90s? No, there are still a lot of great titles coming out, a lot of great writers doing their best, and a lot of great artists drawing their best.
  4. With Immortal Hulk ending, I think Ewing should be open for handling another title. And considering he proved himself with both Immortal Hulk and Empyre, I think making him the next Avengers writer is a no-brainer. But that's not to say Jim Zub wouldn't be a great choice. In my perfect world, Ewing, Zub and Waid (due to being the No Surrender / No Way Home team) would each handle an Avengers book, with all three titles sharing an underlying status-quo narrative not unlike the way X-books are currently being handled.
  5. The A.I. Tony head definitely looks better in-hand... or in pictures of it being in-hand. I also like that it seems to be smaller than the 80 Years Tony head. I really disliked that Hasbro made that headsculpt and Rhodey's proportional to the armor and not to the person inside of it. I find it funny that he mentions collectors not displaying the A.I. Tony head on the figure when that sure is the way I will have it on my shelf. If you already have the 80 Years release, I don't see the point of having this figure on the shelves as a regular armor. There's some fun in A.I. Tony being a completely
  6. "The storyline She-Hulk fans have been waiting for"? So, Jen returning to her regular self? The whole "bring Jennifer Walters’ current journey to its pulse-pounding conclusion" makes me hopeful.
  7. That's my sentiment as well. Spymaster and Crimson Dynamo being in the place of Darkstar and Ursa Major would have made this wave a lot more well-rounded and cohesive.
  8. Ursa Major was the next logical choice after Titanium Man and Crimson Dynamo? I wish they had explored more possibilities, since there are other big Iron Man characters like Arsenal or the Controller that could have been made before jumping to the non-Iron Man-related Ursa Major. The Juggernaut BAF is a few retooling away from being Arsenal, and the deluxe Thanos could be repurposed into the Controller. I hope at least they take that into account for the next Iron Man BAF wave.
  9. Yeah, you'd have to paint them. I can see the faceplate slits being easy to recolor with a fine tip marker. The unibeam would be harder, maybe a sharpie or a gundman marker?
  10. Can't say I'm entirely convinced about that headsculpt for A.I. Tony. The front of his hairline looks like a pompadour.
  11. The colors are not wrong because this isn't meant to be the classic classic armor. This is how the armor looked like in Secret Empyre when A.I. Tony was piloting it:
  12. Y'know, I was a bit peeved that the MCU was going forward with the the real Mandarin thing. I had no problems with the IM3 fake-out since the twist was very layered and Kingsley as Trevor was a delight. When All Hail the King came out with the "oh, but there is a Mandarin" stinger, I was okay with it since it felt like a compromise without back-peddaling. But then they announced they would actually show the real Mandarin, and that they'd do it in a project completely unrelated to Iron Man. But now, seeing that Tony Leung's character doesn't even look like the Mandarin and doesn't even wea
  13. I don't think it would be limiting, since pretty much every character can be covered under an umbrella alongside others, it just depends on how wide or narrow it is, just as long as it's there. If there's a character who can totally and absolutely not be covered under an umbrella no matter the width, it's most likely not even going to receive a figure at all. As a counterpoint to the sales argument, I think thematic cohesion helps sales, since it can incite people to buy all figures in a wave. I've seen collectors mention how they originally intended to buy one figure from the House of X
  14. And as a chaser for all my whining, I just came up with a different "What If?" digibash that I'm sure will become a reality eventually:
  15. I think I expressed the same thought in my original comment, but that definitely would have been the better course of action.
