  1. Pretty much just copying my comment on the Black Widow figure announcement thread, but if these deluxe editions look like they're going to be reusing generic effect pieces, I think War Machine would really benefit from coming packaged with plently of "boom" "fwoosh" and "rattattatatta" effects. Like a souped-up version of the effect assortment that came with the ToyBiz War Machine. I'd love it if they did this for a Classic War Machine or MCU War Machine MK IV figure.

    For Iron Man, I'd love to see the MK 50 with a selection of nanoweapon accessories on par with the Figuarts weapon sets or the Nota and Takara Tony custom sets. I'd love to see that with comic armor as well (the Bleeding Edge and Model-Prime suits), but I feel they're less feasible since they're not MCU-related. And if a nano weapon set is too specific, I think an Iron Man could still come packed with more generic-looking effect pieces. Unibeam, long repulsor beams, a take-off base like the old Marvel Select figure, missiles, etc.

    I would definitely appreciate an Infinity War Machine with those effects. I would also like a Homecoming Spider-Man on the FFH mold with a lot of accessories, alternate heads, webbing, lots of hands, a stand, etc.
    Given Hasbro being Hasbro, I could see all of them just being like this Widow, but I could see them also giving us an Iron Man utilizing some of the 2-pack nano parts, plus new ones. This could just be wishful thinking though, as MK 50 is my favorite armor, and I hated the mold they did for him. In an ideal world, they’d redo the mold and give us a ton of nano parts. 

    A MK 4 War Machine like this would be a dream come true for me, since it's my favorite War Machine armor and it's the suit that packed the most firepower in all the movies.

    As for the MK 50, I feel the same as you. I always thought the crevices were too wide and deep. I mean, you can pretty much stick your nail into the  creases in the abs and the helmet. The shoulders are also too wide. And while the 2-pack reissue fixed the color and added some sorely needed accessories, I never really liked that they only serve to recreate two very specific configurations. I always wanted something with more versatility and better mix-and-match opportunities, like the Figuarts nanoweapon sets.

    Whoa. This looks incredible. If they don’t do this for other characters, it would seriously be a waste. How about a MK 50 or 85 with tons of accessories next??

    I'm all into getting a fourth MK 50 if it comes with a crazy amount of nano weapons. However, since this Black Widow release is reusing some parts, I wouldn't be surprised if these deluxe figures only come with generic accessories like explosions or muzzle flashes. In that case, a War Machine figure could really benefit from that.

    Thanks. I have no idea what is going on with this story, or any of the back-stories. I hope everyone enjoys it. It looks like they did some work to research some things.

    With stories written by Al Ewing, normally reading the previous stories it uses as foundation is just a bonus, not a requirement. He makes sure to bring readers organically up-to-date with things they should know, so Empyre should be accessible if you want to give it a read.

    In all honesty if he left because they weren't going to let him make it some kinda horror story then I say good riddance. This should be a movie about tie-uping all the multi-verse mess left in the wake of Endgame. Now I don't really know what was meant by horror movie. Sure if you want to have some scenes that keep you on the edge of your seat thats one thing. But an actual horror movie just seems like would be totally out of place here. Bad enough they seemed to do that with the New Mutants movie. If you want to make a Marvel horror movie then get actual horror characters. The Blade movie would have been a much better choice for that sort of thing.

    Doctor Strange has been a character that pretty consistently dipped into the horror genre, especially during his stint leading Marvel Premiere in the 1970s, which was basically a Lovecraft homage that introduced Shuma-Gorath. He fights physical embodiments of horror tropes like death, pain, suffering; and constantly journeys to the usual planes of existence "beyond human comprehension." Even in modern times the character's stories have still been rooted in cosmic horror. If the villain of his second movie was going to be a bad guy with such straightforward name as Nightmare, there is no way it wouldn't be partly a horror movie. And the movie wasn't even going to be full-blown horror. Feige has come out to clarify the movie was simply going to be scary. It's not like they intended to make the movie something out of Stephen King.

    White Rabbit is has a great composition and modern living laser is pretty dope too. Rock Python is White Noise. Iron man has so many armors and personally I think almost all look better. Not a fan of the shoulders.  Don't get all hellbent because I don't like a certain design and think we have more important armors. Comic art is subjective. We can both like different things. 

    I also would rather get other armor, but you can't deny thre's a high novelty factor about the scenario of getting Iron Man 2020 in 2020.

    Horrible character design as opposed to say.. Living Laser, White Rabbit, & Rock Python? 

    The bar has been set low in some cases if that were the deciding vote on who got a Legend figure haha

    I gotta throw one out there for Arthur Parks and argue that his modern design is pretty good (despite the bottleneck-shaped helmet, but it depends on how long do artists draw it), and the best to come out of the Iron Man rogues gallery redesigns by Salvador Larroca.

    So that's Disney's big promotional push, releasing a trailer? I notice the Fox name right up front but not a lot of Disney or Marvel. They don't seem to have much faith in it, or perhaps they just don't want to confuse the audience by letting anyone think this might be part of the MCU. Not much chance of that happening from the trailer.

    Well, Fox's name is front and center because the movie was made by Fox. It's like the Star Wars movies showing the Lucasfilms logo, not to mention the movie was made before the buy-out. The Marvel logo does appear 30 seconds in, and the movie's official description reads "20th Century Fox in association with Marvel Entertainment presents..." Marvel might want to make a distinction between New Mutants and the MCU, but that distinction already exists.

    Nah. His arms would be severely restricted by those giant sized shoulder gears. Classic version is way to go.This character has never been made in 6' form & has been around since the 80s' , his 1st Marvel Legends figure should be classic. Hasbro already dropped the ball by making modern manbun Herc 1st when the vast majority of us Herc fans wanted either his 70s or 80s version. I recall no figure fan poll ever asking if we wanted a manbun Herc !

    Proper figure engineering would solve any potential issues caused by the gears. While I agree that Classic Iron Man 2020 is the more recognizable form of the character, modern Iron Man 2020 is having his time in the spotlight right now, so he's the currently-relevant version of the character, with the added topicality of him becoming Iron Man specifically because we've reached the year 2020.

    If I could have it my way, I'd make Classic Iron Man 2020 a single-carded figure and Modern Iron Man 2020 a BAF. We have the Monster Venom wave as a precedent for a wave in which the BAF is just a different version of a character already in the wave.

    I want an Iron Man 2020 figure, but not the version you guys are talking about. This is probably the most topical Iron Man figure of all time, and if Hasbro doesn't make it before the end of Arno's current stint as Iron Man, I hope at least they make it before December.

    I wouldn't mind a classic Iron Man 2020, but it'd be just a retool of the 80 Years Iron Man. Not only I'd rather get modern Iron Man 2020 because it's the Prime Marvel Universe version of Arno, but also because it would require a new sculpt and that would give the figure more worth.


  11. There were reshoots planned (x). Due to the initial delays, it was rumored Fox was meddling too much with the film, but I think it was in part because of the shuffling caused by the Disney buy-out. It's not necessarily that the film was so bad they didn't want it out, it's just that nobody had really any idea where it was going to stand with the assimilation of the X-Men into Marvel Studios' catalogue.

    Then when director Josh Boone recently promoted the movie on Instagram, a fan asked him if the film to be released by Disney was going to be the "OG version" to which Boone replied “I wouldn’t be promoting it here if it wasn’t" (x), prompting people to assume Disney rescued Boone's original cut from the clutches of Fox executives and whatnot.

    People forget that it was reported all the way back in 2018 that initially Fox had Boone tone down the horror elements, and both parties agreed to turn the film into a young adult movie. However, after the success of It, Fox decided to double down on Boone's original vision: "At that point, Fox decided that instead of doing the three days of additional filming required to complete the YA movie that everyone had initially agreed to go make, the studio would change course and make a new version of the movie that was straight-up horror, which was what Boone and Lee originally wanted to do in the first place." (x)

    So it isn't that Boone had a vision, and it was completely warped by Fox. As it currently stands, Boone had a vision, he reached a compromise with Fox to make something more tame, but then Fox decided to go with Boone's original vision. On paper, that sounds like a good thing. Whether Fox did good by backing down or they should have moderated Boone, we'll see this April.

    Wasn't planning on seeing Eternals as I've never given a crap about this "New Gods lite" team. BTW, God made Adam & Eve, not Adam & Steve. There are only 2 sexes, not 32! And Hollywood is the last corporation that should be trying to force the LGBTXYZ agenda down the throats of the vast majority of us who could give a rat's butt about how those people choose to live their lives. And it's laughable that some really think they have it "bad" in America for being LGBT. In other countries, they throw you from the highest building they can find & a crowd is at the bottom waiting to stone you to death should you survive the fall.  But yeah, they have it "bad" in evil ol America.

    Yikes.

    I have seen reports and I also saw almost sold out movie rooms with less than half the sits filled. That is not to be discarded, plus the movie was plain awful.  It is not possible that you actually liked that crap.

    Tell me one good things about it.

    Seriously. 

    You really think I'm gonna dignify you with a debate?

    I have better things to do than humor somebody that sounds like what you get when you put a flat-earther and a comicsgater in a blender. Did this months-old movie really hurt you that bad that you feel the need to hijack a thread to bash it? Did Brie Larson personally travel to your house to murder your family, torture your dog and turn your toilet roll upside down?

    Holy heck, when you think there's only one with such unwarranted hateboner for this movie in this forum another one pops up and one ups him.
