  1. I realized there was something smart the Legends team could have done for Zombie Iron Man. Since the original MK 50 helmet was very badly designed, they could not have left Zombie Iron Man's neck exposed in the new upper torso, and they could also have designed new helmeted MK 50 head. That way, collectors could have used this figure's helmeted head to upgrade their previous MK 50.
  2. It stings a little bit that this is the best the MK 50 has looked in terms of base red color. And it also stings a little bit that this is the only Iron Man reveal between SDCC and this livestream combined. At least my wallet is happy about that fact.
  3. I was hoping this show was going to give the MCU the opportunity to adapt more Iron Man baddies, instead we're getting one of Bendis' pet characters. I mean, I don't hate The Hood, and I know Zeke Stane is going to be in it, but I wish we had more Iron Man villains instead. That being said, the armor looks great, it's a nice adaptation of Riri's Model 1 suit.
  4. Poor Miles, he's the eponymous Spider-Man of the movie, but he gets billed just as "Miles Morales" while Peter B. Parker, who isn't even in the film, gets billed as "Spider-Man."
  5. Not always, if we count Red Hulk's Thunderbolts. But in this case, they've explained there's a specific in-story reason for the roster being like it is. Most likely has to do with this new team trying to do PR damage control after Kingpin appropriated the name.
  6. Aaron leaving Avengers soon is great news. The better news from this panel, however, was Cantwell leaving Iron Man even sooner. Based on interviews, he seemed to have a long plan for the title, so I will relish the possibility that his run has been cut short.
  7. Why is Hasbro billing the Everett Ross figure as part of the Legacy Collection for the first movie when he's also in this one? It's also interesting that they're shoving a Legacy Collection figure in the middle of a new-movie wave. I wonder if this will be common practise. Wouldn't surprise me if they do it to keep costs down but also have more movie-based figures.
  8. Also found this image floating around of their MK 50. I'm stoked for it since its red looked a bit orangey in the promo pics, but here it looks like the appropriate shiny candy apply red.
  9. I didn't expect MAFEX to make a battle damaged MK 85 considering their standard MK 85 came with two Infinity Stones-wielding hands. That being said, I'm glad they're making it, and I won't hesitate to pre-order it. Since I'm also getting the MAFEX Rescue, I didn't know whether to pose my MK 85 in battle with her, or to have it doing the snap. I contemplated getting a second copy, but I quickly decided it was too expensive. This release solves this issue. It also looks a hundred times better than Figuarts' version, and has sculpted battle damage in more parts than just the upper torso and shoulders.
  10. My ideal Spider-Man would be a middle point between Renew Your Vows Spidey and Amazing Friends Spidey. As tall as RYV Spidey, with its headsculpt and color palette, but with the muscle definition of AF Spidey and its neck disc hinge. But for the time being, I'm going to stick to RYV Spidey.
  11. This checks out with the tidbits Zach Oat shared on The Fwoosh forums, with the Thor-related figure that isn't a Thor, and the Disney Store repaint. Gotta say, pretty interesting design choice for Beta Ray Bill, I'd assume they would go with classic Beta Ray Bill instead of his most recent costume. I don't care for it, but it looks fantastic. On the other hand... that Miles figure... it's not pretty. Even though it's badly posed, its sculpt and proportions don't look good. This is a shame considering DST's Spectacular Spider-Man was on its own level. Cool Spider-Ham statuette though.
  12. Really hope that new costume is only temporary. There was no need to change it.
  13. Yes, they will. It's one of the things they stressed in the video showcase.
  14. I have to say, I'm not entirely sold on this 3-pack. Holland Spidey should have been upgraded further. The Integrated Suit as it appears in the movie doesn't have the web-shooter bracelets, and the belt should end at a point. I think it's funny that Ryan said something along the lines of ensuring that they looked just like they did in the film, yet the Integrated Suit is still relegated to concept art look. That being said, I had to pull the trigger on these figures. Although it's very likely that they will be re-released in some capacitt, I don't want to take it for granted. And if anything, I could always re-sell them if something better comes out later down the line. I just hope the webline accessories aren't those old ones that keep reusing and reusing, but I'm not holding my breath.
  15. Step 1) Get spare suited bodies Step 2) Find look-alikes of William Hurt, Sam Rockwell, Guy Pearce, Robert Redford, etc. Step 3) Bribe them to get figures of themselves made Step 4) Profit
  16. 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.
  17. That doesn't look holographic at all. This is just teal Iron Man, and the only clear part is the chestplate.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. 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)
