  1. The Fantastic Four look pretty good for the most part, but I'm not a fan of Sue's face. I feel like it's unfortunate Reed is coming with the salad fingers again instead of the bendable arms. That labcoat looks like it would be a good fit for an Ant-Man figure. I wonder how difficult would it be to retrofit them into one. I'm impressed that Psycho-Man got that much new tooling. As for High Evolutionary, I can already picture a Chemistro being made with those arms and legs. This kind of care for this wave makes me hopeful for the eventual Iron Man retro wave.
  2. I'm guessing they went with his almost-black blue because Spider-Man 2099's suit was originally technically black but it seemed blue because of the highlights used for it. So Hasbro can take into account such technicalities. Now I can bring this up the next time I complain about the Stealth Iron Man's color scheme.
  3. Well, if the villains of the mini are Dark Souls bosses, that explains why Doctor Strange died right away. I like the design of the meatball with the Greek mask, it's a nice contrast.
  4. The size of the heads is a bummer, but luckly is not a deal breaker. What it is, however, is a deal maker because it's enticing me even more to get the MAFEX version of this armor that has a more proportionate head (not to mention import-level sculpt and paint). I can only hope MAFEX delivers on the likeness.
  5. The nanotech armors were more form fitting, but it was still an armor, so Tony's head still looked relatively small when unhelmeted. You can also see that MAFEX kept the proportions from the movie in their own version of the MK 85:
  6. While it's not my Infinity Saga top priority, I can't wait to get this 2-pack. I'm debating whether to put Happy in the Iron Man 2 section of my shelf carring the briefcase MK V or to print a security badge and put him in the Iron Man 3 section pointing at it.
  7. Don't forget the classic Iron Man too: I love that you can see the eyes inside the faceplate. That's one detail I sorely missed from Hasbro's version of this armor. The MK 85 Iron Man looks incredible. I hope the likeness is exactly like that in the final product.
  8. I wonder if this is the new standard pinless female body that they teased a while ago during one of the YouTube interviews. Now we just need to see what's the standard pinless male body.
  9. This has the potential to be "so bad it's good." Can't wait to watch it.
  10. This reminds me I still need to scour eBay to find that Iron Man loose for my Iron Man basic figure collection. Yeah... I collect a few basic figures. They have a certain charm to them. Their simplicity takes me back to my childhood.
  11. I've also seen it on the Logan figure and it does look good, but that figure has a wider torso than the Nick Fury body. I would prefer a smaller hip/shoulder ratio for Tony Stark.
  12. I wonder if the Tony Stark unmasked head will look better in the Nick Fury suited body, since that one is bigger than the Coulson one. I really wish Hasbro made more releases of that body. Right now it's only been used for Nick Fury, Miami Vice Deadpool and Obadiah Stane. And it would really be an investment to buy a second Iron Monger 2-pack just for the Obadiah Stane even if I got to resell the big guy. I was hoping the upcoming MCU J. Jonah Jameson would be a variant of it, but I checked and I think it's the Coulson body yet again. Really hoping I'm wrong so I can place the second Tony head on a suited body without ending up with a bobblehead.
  13. "Aw, man, there are no Iron Man statues," I lament, as if I could even contemplate buying one if there was.
  14. Based on this tweet, this exhibition had more figures displayed, but photography of the unpainted prototypes was forbidden. These figures are battle damaged MK 85, Rescue, Iron Man MK 50 with a heap of nano weapons and X-Force Wolverine. I'm excited to hear about the Iron Man MK 50, especially since it will come with a lot of accessories. I'll make sure to save up for that one. The battle damaged MK 85 is interesting news, since the regular release already comes with the Infinity Stones. I hope they do the battle damage better than Figuarts did. Now I'm debating whether to get this one or the regular version. This version will be more screen-accurate for the "I am Iron Man" moment, but the other version will be more versatile. Well, since it's in the unpainted prototype stage, I guess I have plenty of time to think about it.
  15. I know that this exhibition just unveiled an Iron Man figure, but at the risk of sounding greedy I will say that I would have liked to see an Iron Man MK 50 between that Infinity War Thor and Infinity War Captain America. I find it kinda weird that Iron Man is one of the figures from Infinity War that they haven't tackled. On the flip side, I would like to believe that means he's got to be next after Strange.
  16. I don't know anything about Genis-Vell, but Thompson's run has been a solid ride. This "who's-who in the Marvel family" story sounds fun. I wonder if we'll see Carol get another costume out of it. That's been a constant in this run, almost every story arc earns Carol a new alternate costume.
  17. I can't help but feel the Iron Man is a bit redundant, but I'm curious for what kind of accessories it will come with.
  18. Love me that better look at that steampunk Iron Man. Can't wait to read this, been looking forward to it since the FCBD issue.
  19. Blade wouldn't be able to unsheathe his katana from his back because he can't bend his elbows past 90 degrees.
  20. I'll be very happy to upgrade to this Rescue, though I wish Hasbro had found a better way to implement the drones. The way you need to take off a set of flaps to work them feels cheap. Since the figure went unchanged, they could at least have reworked the backpack pieces. I'm still glad to have a Rescue with the drones. I'm still bummed no bootleg version of the Figuarts Rescue came out to buy it just for its drones. Now I just need for Hasbro to release some kind of office casual female character to find that unmasked head a home and get myself a civilian Pepper.
  21. Galactus certainly looks neat (and I think it should have been the first HasLab Marvel project instead of a Sentinel). It's not like this came out of the left field since it was the obvious choice for a HasLab project, but I hope some time down the line Hasbro realizes that between $25 mass-marketed figures and $300+ crowfunded figures there are many steps where they could make more accessible projects. It would be neat to be in on the fun of these projects some time, jussayin'.
  22. You're not missing much. Even by 2015 standards it was an underscaled figure with limited articulation, let alone today's standards. It was a very lazy repaint, with details that should have been sculpted being just painted in, not to mention the sculpt itself was 100% inaccurate to the armor from the comics.
