  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Hydra Cap wasn't a mystery though. Issue #1 ended with the cliffhanger reveal and it was explained right away in issue #2.
  5. Another suited figure reveal, another missed opportunity for Hasbro to make a new standard pinless suited body.
  6. 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.
  7. Dead Strange was the coolest thing to come out of the MCU, and I'm glad this figure is doing it justice.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. No stretch-- energy construct effects? Not even some medium-sized energy fist to clip on her forearm? ... Okay, then.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. I think this might be one of the best collections of variant covers Marvel has done. A lot of them are really playful and unique, and the more generic ones still work fine as pin-ups. I think my three favorite are the recreation of ASM #33, the one celebrating the 90s cartoon, and the one celebrating the games. The latter solely due to the inclusion of the low-poly PS1 Spidey.
  14. War Machine heralding a retro Iron Man wave... that's awesome. I'm glad that this one comes with open hands, I always contemplated dyeing some extra Iron Man hands black, so now that wont be necessary. Kinda of a shame that they couldn't at least include two small blast effects for the forearm cannons. I gotta admit I'm not sure which one I like the most, the original colors or this new one's paintjob... I'm also debating whether to open this one, I'm not a MIB collector, but this figure is kinda redundant, yet it looks nice. Maybe I can just make a separate display for this figure and the eventual Modular Iron Man repaint.
  15. I might not be into Mezco figures (or soft goods figures at all), but I need to express that this figure's selection of accessories is beyond impeccable.
  16. Everytime I see this figure I think about how Hasbro missed the opportunity to use it to debut a pinless Wolverine mold. That would have made people look at this figure a bit more favorably since it would have been more than another Wolverine repaint.
  17. The Fan First Friday stream had already showcased the wings' full range of motion.
  18. Watched it the other day and I loved it. Raimi really got to flex his horror-movie muscles, not necessarily because the movie was scary, but because the visuals were fenomenal. What Strange did in the third act was the dopest thing the MCU has ever done.
  19. I hope I'm not the only one who thinks this looks just a tad bit like a thing of nightmares.
  20. I think the true potential of this line lies in revamping any figure from before 2017, basically, anything that predates the digital printing tech. My top pick would be the figures from Age of Ultron. They're not only old (therefore rarer and without digital printing), but half the roster was locked behind an exclusive even rarer 4-pack. I'd personally love to see Tony Stark and Don Cheadle open-faceplate headsculpts getting the digital printing treatment. I'm not sure how cost-effective the line is meant to be, but if Hasbro could also give the Iron Man MK 43 interchangeable hands, that'd be great. I know all evidece points to this line being only for reissues, but I'd also love it if they could take advantage of the cost-effectiveness of repaints to maybe sneak in a couple of new figures. For example, the Age of Ultron reissues could be accompanied by the Iron Man MK 45, coated Hawkeye and Scarlet Witch. I highly doubt this could happen, so this is just wishful thinking.
  21. This is a great concept. I hope to see it extend to more releases soon, especially if they were to update paint decos. Something like the Age of Ultron figures with digital face-printing tech would be neat.
  22. The first thing that came to my mind when Hasbro revealed the Amazing Fantasy Spider-Man was "they need to repaint this into a Romita-style release." To be honest, the main reason I want this is so people stop touting the retro Spider-Man as the "perfect" capture of Romita's Spidey. It's not. 60s-80s Spider-Man needs a leaner body. Not skinny, just with less defined musculature. That being said, here's my digibash:
