  1. I think all of these hologram Iron Men are meant to mimic the holograms that Tony uses in his workshop to tinker with his armor's schematics (not that they're doing a good job at that here). The dynamic poses don't really fit that angle, but I guess they gotta showcase the figure some way. As for an actual practical use of an Iron Man hologram in battle, Tony has been shown projecting holograms of himself for crowd control.
  2. That doesn't look holographic at all. This is just teal Iron Man, and the only clear part is the chestplate.
  3. I'm a tad bit bummed about the scale, I was hoping it would stand as tall as their MK 45, which would be perfect for Marvel Legends. Still, it's not a complete deal-breaker since in some of the comparion photos it seems to be taller than the Figuarts version (and it's definitely better proportioned). Plus, sometimes Hasbro's Iron Men seem a bit overly big, so I hope that's a factor into play. This figure also has very organic drop-down hips, so I imagine that dropping the hips just a bit will help it blend in with Legends. That being said, everything else about the figure looks fantastic. I can't wait to get it.
  4. I would say Fin Fang Foom, but I don't really want him to be a HasLab. Not unless they avoid unnecessary bells and whistles and go for something that isn't as hard on the wallet as the Sentinel or Galactus. No fancy electronics or sounds, for instance. Don't really need that.
  5. I'm looking forward to this series. Slott is fine by me (for the most part), and I just love Mark Bagley. Considering this will be an ongoing, I'm more excited for whatever might come after the Spider-Verse stuff is over with. This being a sister title, I'm hoping for fun, lower-stake stories.
  6. While I'm also not a fan of Titan Hero Series, these are for kids and they seem to be selling well. And who knows, maybe for some of these younger Marvel fans, it's the first stage into the Marvel Legends pipeline. (That being said, I do feel like 6" basic figures are better pre-ML toys and I wish Hasbro would invest in them)
  7. He sometimes wore the hood up in Peter David's modern run of the character, like MODADDYDODOK pointed out, when he was living in Las Vegas. It's in this run that his emblem was also smaller and to the left:
  8. It's pretty neat that they're "reissuing" their Spider-Man figure, but they could've kept the Peter Parker head and unworn mask at the very least. The proportions are still spot-on. I really wish Hasbro would make their next evergreen Spider-Man look closer to this. Muscular, but still lean.
  9. That's a really cool selection of heads. Not a fan of the soft-goods hoodie, though. That being said, it looks pretty good for a soft-goods piece of clothing. Maybe it's because it has no sleeves, those are usually the parts that look the most awkward.
  10. Indeed. I'm glad he didn't point out to the artwork miscoloring the armor's jaws red as a reason why the figure should have them colored that way.
  11. Wouldn't surprise me if it's third Spider-Man retro wave, considering wave 2 came out at the beginning of this year. It'd probably be too soon for an all-comic Avengers wave with the Controller wave barely now hitting the market. I'm biasedly crossing my fingers for the Iron Man retro wave, though.
  12. But the basics of it were revealed right away. If by "all that time" you mean Hydra Cap playing along pretending to be good, that's a thriller rather than a mystery.
  13. This one is the best looking of this collection so far, and that's because it's the more accurate, and the clear bits aren't as distracting. I really wish Hot Toys would just re-release these down the line without the clear plastic. It's what is killing these figures for me.
  14. Hydra Cap wasn't a mystery though. Issue #1 ended with the cliffhanger reveal and it was explained right away in issue #2.
  15. Another suited figure reveal, another missed opportunity for Hasbro to make a new standard pinless suited body.
  16. Watched the first episode earlier today. Loved the direction. The jump cuts, the close-ups, the environmental details. Definitely the closest to an Edgar Wright MCU production. I'm gonna make sure to watch the second episode as soon as I can.
  17. Dead Strange was the coolest thing to come out of the MCU, and I'm glad this figure is doing it justice.
  18. While he could use a wash, I think it's worth appreciating the color highlights on the light blue parts, while the dark blue is made with a really nice shiny plastic (that is not horribly marbleized), which adds a nice contrast of texture.
  19. I got the opposite impression. They could totally have gotten away with just changing the head, removing the skirt and repainting the rest, but they didn't do that. Instead, the torso is new, the boots are new and the gloves are new. I feel like that's the complete opposite of phoning it in.
  20. No stretch-- energy construct effects? Not even some medium-sized energy fist to clip on her forearm? ... Okay, then.
  21. I'm pleasantly surprised by this BAF. I didn't expect it to have that many new parts. Can't wait to assemble this guy... Getting the pieces will be the hard part though, since the only figure I'm going to get is the one that comes without a piece. Well, I'm contemplating getting Quake for the Maria Hill mode, since she was a fairly important Iron Man supporting character during The Initiative and Dark Reign, but I will still need to hunt down most of the BAF pieces on their own.
  22. This review is making me warm up to the figure. If only the eyes looked the way they are supposed to... and it used a darker red... Well, at least the red is something a coat of paint can fix. Really hoping somebody with enough patience and dedication does a headcast with a better sculpt for the eyes, though.
