  1. I read digital, but I can understand the reasoning behind delaying digital releases to stay behind for the physical editions. Well, if this pause lasts longer than this week I personally don't have a problem since I still got a tall to-read pile in my backlog.
  2. While I agree that the armor they went with is one of the least recognizable looks for the mantle, I honestly think that it's the most visually appealing. I've never been a fan of the older Crimson Dynamo designs, with the Star Wars-esque helmet and no color variation. I think it's a testament to the quality of the design used by the BAF that it was the basis for the look of Crimson Dynamo in Marvel: Ultimate Alliance, Marvel: Avengers Alliance 2, and to some extent the Iron Man 2 and Iron Man 3 video games and Marvel's Avengers Assemble. And in none of these media Crimson Dynamo is Gennady Gavrilov (the one that uses this design in the comics). Plus, the design Hasbro went with is probably the most apt for a BAF-sized figure. Classic Crimson Dynamo could work as a single-carded release, since he'd be roughly the bulk of a Colossus figure.
  3. That's one solid custom. Not my favorite Crimson Dynamo design, but it's an impressive figure. Same. While it's his modern armor, it's classic-looking enough to appeal to collectors of classic figures.
  4. Yeah, he really isn't very popular, unfortunately. It doesn't help that, like way too many Iron Man villains, Spymaster ticks both the checkbox of being (a) more than one single individual and the checkbox of (b) not being used frequently.
  5. As an Iron Man collector, this figure was the second most anticipated of the wave after Crimson Dynamo. Still kinda wish they'd gone with one of the character's more subtle modern designs.
  6. You don't need to think about it, we know what they're going to do to her... ... Give her a costume revamp. It's literally there in the announcement video. I feel like this is too much of a low-hanging fruit to comment further.
  7. This book stars the original team. It's about them becoming mentors to these new heroes. These new characters are just the supporting cast.
  8. I also miss Joe Quesada. He wouldn't allow this. He would instead allow a story in which Peter Parker learns Gwen Stacy cheated on him with Norman Osborn and had twins, or a mini-series that implies Peter Parker is his uncle Ben's actual son since his mother cheated on his father with him, or a story full of gore and shock-value to wipe clean the Ultimate Universe which included having the Blob cannibalize the Wasp and say she tastes like chicken, or a story in which Iron Man builds a gulag for superheroes. Good ol' Joe Q would also allow and write a story in which Spider-Man sells his marriage to a devil. Where did he go? Everything was daisies and roses with him. Woe is us.
  9. I'd suggest you to worry about your "talking out of my butt only to be most of the time swiftly shown up" habit. That one seems like in need of an intervention.
  10. I said I wanted to. Not that I expected to. Good luck next try, of which I do expect will be more. 😘
  11. I wanted the Infinity Stones to be phased out at the end of Infinity Wars, but at least the take of each stone seeking out a host and bonding with them is pretty interesting, so it's good to see they're continuing with it after last year's Infinity Watch.
  12. I feel mixed feelings about this book. Reappropriating derogatory terms is a bold move, but there's always the chance outsiders see it as doubling down on using them with their previous connotation. The designs feel like they jumped from a Batman Beyond episode, so they don't really feel natural. B-Negative is a pretty great pun for a character name, gotta give them that. I loved Kibblesmith's Loki and I heard good things about his Black Panther vs. Deadpool so I'm cautiously optimistic. I just hope he handles well all the implications that these new characters are carrying. When trying to reflect modern culture, there is a very fine line between coming across as too detached from it and being a try-hard. I won't even be taking this book that seriously, though. "Internet gas" is a pretty clear telltale that you're not supposed to.
  13. If only you actually read comics to sustain arguments like that. But alas.
  14. The additional fee would have to be astronomical to even be at knee level of the box office revenue they'll eventually get when they release the movie in cinemas. Only five countries currently have Disney+ (US, Canada, Netherlands, Australia and New Zealand), and it's only reaching Wester Europe this March. Asia won't get it until late 2020 and Latin America the next year. Casual movie-goers would just pass up on the movie if they have to get D+ to watch it. So the movie would only reach people from US, Canada, Netherlands, Australia and New Zealand who already have D+ or who feel this movie is incentive enough to get it. Additionally, any given account can be used in four screens at the same time at any given time. And on top of that, screen-sharing programs and real-life watching parties would enable people to squeeze an account even more. It's also worth taking into consideration that before a movie hits home release, the only way to pirate it is videotaping a screening. Releasing it on HD digital right away would help piracy of a film, giving people less of a reason to pay for it.
  15. I'm really excited for this event, even more now that this trailer establishes that Al Ewing is the mastermind while Dan Slott is more or less just tagging along for the ride. Slott is a good writer on his own right, but he hasn't really been captivating me the last couple of years. Ewing, on the other hand, just keeps getting better and better.
