  1. I'm expecting people to buy the basic version of Mysterio solely for the accesory. If I were a bigger-scale collector and intended to get the Marvel Legends version I'd consider doing that.
  2. MCU Spidey has a black wash over the cobweb. Hasbro's Homecoming ML releases had the cobweb painted, so I figure they're just cutting corners with this one, even if it makes the figure look like it belongs to the basic line.
  3. I really hope Hasbro's current trend of leaving the cobweb pattern unpainted as if the texture alone is good enough is only temporary.
  4. You just answered your own question. Because it's an easy repaint. However, it's still a neat figure. Plus it represents the character during an important storyline for him.
  5. I figure my choice isn't far-fetched since the Black Panther vintage release used his modern look, so this is what I would like: A re-issue of the Heroic Age Iron Man from 2013. While I already have it, a re-release of this figure would fit well with one of the purposes of the vintage waves which is to provide new fans with a good array of "starter figures" for their collection. The Heroic Age Iron Man is a much better figure than the Neo-Classic Iron Man from the first wave and it's a suit that serves the "ultimate" interpretation of modern Iron Man. On a more self-serving note, I would also hope that a re-release of this figure includes more accessories than the original version, namely that comic book Tony Stark head that only appeared in that UK Disney Store exclusive Iron Man / Cap / Thor / Hulk / Ultron 5-pack.
  6. I plan on getting this figure for the space in my desk dedicated to assorted non-Legends Iron Man figures and figurines. I like the blast effect, it's miles better than that weird long-blaster thingie that came with the basic figure from Infinity War. On a side note, something that always piqued my attention was the fact that in this figure, armor plating can be seen imprinted into the Team Suit (mainly in the abdomen). That's why it always annoyed me that for the Marvel Legends version, the Iron Man helmet is meant to be used with the regular Captain America / Hawkeye mold. I wish they'd made a unique mold for him.
  7. Not long ago I made some research on Rhodey's suits and, yeah, his post-Iron Patriot appearances were a nightmare. Around the time of CWII he was pretty much wearing two different suits consecutively. I mean, even in Invincible Iron Man #600 he switched armors between panels because the issue had different guest artists.
  8. In my comment I mentioned a few characters that could've been made. I'm not saying all of them should've been made, but there was enough to balance out the 2:7 Endgame/non-Endgame figure ratio in the wave. Team Suit Thor, War Machine MK V, War Machine MK VI, Team Suit War Machine, regular Captain America. Tentatively Team Suit Hulk and regular Hulk as well, considering Age of Ultron Hulk was a single-carded figure. Stretching it, we could include regular Black Widow, since the cloest way to get her is to kitbash Team Suit Black Widow with Infinity War Black Widow, removing the vest from the latter (and it isn't accurate, only the next best thing). I wish they had covered Team Suit Iron Man with his own figure, since he should have a unique mold with amor plating imprinted into the Team Suit.
  9. I'm still surprised by the lack of figures for the movie so far. I know that this was a special case, and a lot of stuff was kept under wraps, but other companies like Diamond Select Toys, Funko and LEGO have managed to showcase a wide arrange of products with the characters' new appearances. Endgame is arguably the biggest Marvel movie ever, so the lack of merchandise from Hasbro's part is pretty jarring. Just to be clear, I wouldn't expect them to jump right in with stuff revealed much later on like Iron Man MK 85, but I think it would have made sense to have by now figures like Team Suit Thor, an appropriate Team Suit Iron Man, Captain America with his new uniform, and either War Machine MK V or MK VI. I also found it disappointing that these two Endgame waves are to the brim with comic figures. I understand why movie-related waves include comic figures, and I'm not saying they should've been all-movie waves, but I feel like Hasbro leaned a bit too hard on that aspect of the BaF which is to use them to incentivize buyers to buy other figures. Please tell me if I'm being snobbish for being disappointed that for a wave released to coincide with a movie, only 2 out of 7 figures belong to that film (barring the BaF). If we assume the next wave will also have seven figures, there will be again only two slots left for Endgame-related figures. I can only hope Hasbro pulls an all-movie series for a theoretical third wave to fill-in all the missing spots.
  10. When I visited Canada in 2014 I went to a comic store. They had my grail, the Iron Man / Mandarin 2-pack. Unfortunately I overestimated the range of articulation of the left arm and it broke off a week afterwards while doing a photoshoot. I finally bought a replacement earlier this year. I still keep the broken figure, though. I glued the arm back on and painted its faceplate with sharpie to fill in that unpainted red section. It looks nice displayed in my assorted Iron Man merch desk corner while the unbroken version is fighting the Mandarin up in my action figure display.
  11. The unexpected outcome doesn't necessarily mean that the story won't be self-contained, it just promises that the ending will be surprising. They're one-shot annuals written by Marvel newcomers, so I highly doubt they'll bring forth the new statuos-quos for the characters involved.
  12. It's just a harmless self-contained story with potential to be dumb fun, I won't bother complaining.
  13. This has the potential to be fun. Now that I think of it, it's never been uncommon for heroes to fight another character's villains once in a while. Still, I hope the rest of the isuses to be announced really take the heroes out of their elements, like the Punisher in space.
