  1. I appreciate the new torso for the Iron Man figure, so that way the head isn't the only thing different from the Classic Armor. I mean, it's not the accurate design of the Proto-Classic Armor, but at least it's different. I think the backdrop for the Iron Man figure is incredibly funny. It's like not even the Marvel Legends team has realized the base was meant to be one half of a satellite.
  2. I was expecting their next Infinity War figure to be Iron Man MK L. Well, at least more Mafex means more Mafex. I like that they're pumping out more and more Marvel stuff.
  3. If the Thor is the Herald of Thunder version, I think it would be smart if it also came with an alternate helmeted head, since that's how he has used this costume after the first arc:
  4. Damn, I'm not even into She-Hulk but it does feel good to see her back to her proper self. With Rainbow Rowell writing it, I will try to check this out.
  5. That's a fair take. Unfortunately Spider-Man being Spider-Man means this figure was too convenient to release to pass up.
  6. It's neat to see Lim do interiors again. Most of his modern work has just been variant covers.
  7. Part of the reason for this release is that Spider-Man's on-screen suit has been tweaked, with most notably the belt area being different. I don't see this figure as a re-release as much as its own release meant reflect the changes in the movie. I mean, they still should have painted the weblines, but just throwing that thought out there.
  8. Deluxe Black Widow got reused as Melina Vostokoff. And while War Machine didn't get reused, the figure itself was a partial retool with the upper legs of the 80 Years Iron Man, the flight effects from Iron Man 2020 and the gunfire and smoke effects from the Deadly Origin Black Widow.
  9. Personally, I do think it detracts since it's impossible to pose the figure as it is without being forced to make an action pose. I know there are work-arounds like positioning the shield in a way the holes are obstructed from view, but still... I think it would have been wise for Hasbro to include an alternate pristine shield, but I bet they're betting that most people who will buy this figure will have some other shield from some other Captain America release hanging around.
  10. As much as I'd like Hasbro to finally make a non-specific Tony Stark head, I can totally see them adapting Bob Layton's Tony for this release. The horned and bolted heads would be nice choices, but I would personally love to get the nose helmet. I've been vouching for ages for the nose helmet and the rollerskates to come as accessories. I'm also crossing my fingers Hasbro takes notes from the Iron Man 2020 and Doctor Doom figures and make the main headsculpt one in which we can see the eyes under the slits. That'd be perfect.
  11. If you think about this, this would have been the perfect chance for Figuarts to make a Wade Wilson headsculpt. They botch their faces, and Wade's face is supposed to be botched 😛
  12. I prefer the darker blue and the headsculpt of the original release, I can't help but recall the 90s movie Captain America when I see this new headsculpt. However, I can't deny this looks like an excellent alternative, especially since I've heard so many people having trouble to find the 80 Years Cap. It also comes with some neat accessories, but the holey shield is a bit questionable. Can't wait to see what will Hasbro do for Iron Man, especially since they just released a brightly-colored repaint of the 80 Years figure. Maybe the colors will be a bit less saturated?
  13. I hate this figure... because it looks really good, and I'm tempted to get it for the "Into the Iron Verse" section of my shelves.
  14. The matte red looks much better than the previous figure's shiny finish. It still looks cheap without the weblines, but at least it doesn't look as cheap. It's also neat to see all the other differences I hadn't spotted. That the lower torso and the crotch were new was a given, but I hadn't noticed the upper torso is also different. I really wish they had redone this figure to be pinless, though. The black and gold suit is a repaint of the previous version of this figure, so the investment on a brand new mold would have paid off because they could have reused it for the black and gold suit. Also worth pointing out the headsculpt. The sculpt might be the same as the Infinity War 2-pack version, but the subtle paint differences really makes it look closer to Tom Holland. The darker hair color also helps.
  15. It's a small detail, but the figure has a new crotch and lower torso to account for the design tweaks between FFH and NWY:
  16. I feel like "a female version of Avalanche" is a misnomer. She does have seismic powers too, but Avalanche doesn't hold the trademark on them. Quake is one of the most important players of the modern history of S.H.I.E.L.D. (having even been director for a while), a member of the Secret Warriors, and has also been in the Avengers.
  17. Assuming you mean the debut and Avengers NOW! line-ups. Because otherwise Synapse is missing for the ANAD line-up.
  18. Unfortunately it was, I even remember being in a Discord server that had to kick a dude because he was having a meltdown over the way Lee's deaths would affect the comics.
