  1. As an Iron Man fan, I guess there was really only one (1) reveal that felt pertinent to me, and it wasn't even exciting. So I guess I decided to hold on to that and made a few quick edits to get a feeling of the new Tony Stark head. I think I might be in love with the way it (tentatively) looks like on the suited body. I wasn't convinced at first, but I think it might just pass off perfectly as a modern comic Tony Stark (I just really hope this head won't end up like the 80 Years Tony Stark head that was too big). I only wish we had more comic figures that would warrant that (y'know, like an Extremis Armor redo...)
  2. Taking into account that no likeness is gonna be 100% correct, I still see them pretty similar to what ended up in the game. And considering it's been a while since the game was in production, I highly doubt these headsculpts are suffering the curse of the concept art.
  3. Wait, Iron Man doesn't even come with blast effects? I mean, good to see that enough budget went to the comic figures, but... not even a pair? It's a an atmospheric armor, Hasbro. It's all about flying, and I'm pretty sure the blast effects aren't that expensive to make, especially since they don't even need to paint them or use translucent plastic. The Tony Stark head still looks good, so I guess there's at least that.
  4. Gotta say, I found all the reveals pretty interesting. I don't care about the X-Men but at least this time around even I can see the appeal in these new figures. I just wish they could have slipped at least an "we're making an Iron Man wave, guys." Next time, I hope.
  5. I'm aware, but I normally avoid counting the BAF since having it requires getting all figures (or all but one).
  6. Surprised to see the wave they billed as "Gamerverse Wave 2" come with only two Gamerverse figures, of which are both repaints. Disappointed that they didn't make Black Widow and Thor instead. However, I have to admit I'm going to buy that Iron Man, mostly because that alternate head looks pretty good and can pass off as modern comic Tony Stark. Not gonna lie, it's a bit refreshing to see a wave like this in which the comic figures have more appeal than the game/movie figures. I might get Jocasta for my Iron Man allies shelf. As for the 3.75" wave... that metallic Iron Man better herald a similar treatment for a proper metallic Marvel Legends Iron Man.
  7. Iron Man box. Iron Man pin. Iron Man patch. Iron Man comics. Aaaaaand... Ms. Marvel figure. One of these is not like the others. And it's a shame. Even if it had been a useless repaint, I would have loved to get the full kit if the figure had also been Iron Man themed.
  8. Mmhh, it's almost almost as if they named those new characters Safespace and Snowflake... [gasp] on purpose, knowing full well the connotations of the words. Like, I don't even care about the New New Warriors and the only character I will somewhat genuinely defend is B-Negative (because that's a 10/10 pun for an emo vampire), but just because you aren't capable of detecting when something is tongue-in-cheeky doesn't mean it isn't.
  9. Oh gooooooood I can't believe Marvel has the sheer audacity to adopt a fan alias as a nickname, not even the predominant name, to a version of a character. How dare they. Holy cow creativity is d e a d. Where did the truly creative names go? Spider-Man, Iron Man, Iceman, Power Man, Wonder Man, Invisible Woman, Marvel Girl, Ant-Man, Giant-Man, where are they? Now those names were the peak of creativity! It's an attribute related to the character plus the noun "man" or "woman" or "boy" or "girl"! And you can separate them with a space or a hyphen or not at all! So versatile!! And just you wait until you hear about Captain America, Doctor Doom, Mister Fantastic or Doctor Strange! See? Why limit ourselves to "man" or "woman" or "boy" or "girl"? The noun can now be a title! Now that requires a genius intellect to come up with. I wish I could just go back to the good old tim-- Wait, could it be that I am out of touch? Nay! The present is wrong. I don't need to go back to the old times, the old times need to come back to me.
  10. They're Chinese. Their figures usually pop up on AliExpress and eBay, the former is cheaper. You can see a listing here on AliExpress selling either the MK III or MK II with different packaging and accessory options (the more souped-up options come with accessories not originally for the figure, as you can see by one option of the MK II coming with a knock-off of Hasbro's flight effect) for around the 25-dollar mark. And here's a listing for either figure + Hall of Armor dock combo for around 55. You can also find the Hall of Armor dock alone here for around 30.
  11. Definitely. Redoing MKs 1 to 6 should be a no-brainer for Hasbro. I'm very happy with ZD Toys tackling them and even releasing Hall of Armor docks to bring the whole thing together, but I'm also pretty frustrated that Hasbro has had all these years to do the same and they've done nix.
  12. ZD Toys are 1/10 scale, so the top of a Marvel Legends Iron Man reaches the middle of the head of a ZD Toys. Here's an image from JayC's review of their MK 85:
  13. I'm pretty amazed by the speed they're working at. And yes, they already have MKs 1 and 6 prototyped (in different stages, but, still...). I can't wait until they have the full set.
  14. Okay, those accessories look really good. As always, I really hope they can work with Legends. And it'd be funny if the head being underscaled ends up making the Tony Stark head fit with Legends.
  15. Huh. Considering DST has only made two comic Iron Man figures (not counting Hulkbuster), there are other suits I'd rather they'd done first. But it'll still make a nice addition to my Select shelf. The product description says it includes "Multiple interchangeable parts." At least one extra pair of hands and an alternate head, maybe?
