  1. New characters:

    * Whiplash (Anton Vanko)

    * Any of the armors from Iron Man 3, seriously. (mini rant follows) Hasbro missed such a big opportunity. Specially considering some armors are repainted versions of others (Silver Centurion / Blue Steel, Striker/Gamma, Shades/Shotgun, Midas/Python, Tank/Heartbreaker) or with some differences (Red Snapper / Southpaw / Peacemaker), which means is not as if they would need to create a new sculpt for every figure. They could make a simple 6-figure wave with Igor BAF with a lot of variants and cover a lot of the Iron Legion armors). Like: Shotgun (Shades variant), Silver Centurion (Blue Steel variant), Heartbreaker (Tank variant), Red Snapper (Southpaw and Peacemkaer variants), Striker (Gamma variant), and Gemini. Each one with an Igor BAF part.

    * Chitauri soldier


    * Iron Man (Superior version) (with interchangeable heads: masked, unmasked, and with tiara)

    * Iron Man (Marvel NOW! version) (with Stealth Armor variant)

    * Thor (female version)

    * Captain America (Falcon version)

    * Loki (Agent of Asgard version)

    * Deadpool (Marvel NOW! version)

    * Doctor Strange (modern version)

    * Vision (Avengers NOW! version)

    * Magneto (All-New Marvel NOW! version, i.e. black modern version)

    * Mister Fantastic (Back in Blue version)

    * Invisible Woman (Back in Blue version)

    * Human Torch (Back in Blue version)

    * The Thing (Back in Blue version)

  2. "We already have so many War Machines from Marvel Legends."


    For Marvel Legends, there has been only two War Machines. Original War Machine that uses the awkward Toy Biz Iron Man mold and a variant for the Modular Armor Iron Man (which is technically no War Machine from the comics). Then there has been the Iron Man 2 War Machine, and then the Initiative War Machine from Iron Man: Armored Avenger. That's only four War Machines (counting the Modular War Machine which technically shouldn't), that's not "so many."


    If they release a Marvel NOW! Iron Man, I really really hope they base it off its original design by Carlo Pagulayan and not Greg Land's attempts at drawing it:



    And Hasbro is more than welcome to make a Stealth Armor variant:



    Considering Hasbro is so lazy they used the same mold for Bleeding Edge Armor and the Space Armor, they can use a similar mold for two armors which are way more similar than those other two.


    If they made a War Machine, I'd expect them to release the War Machine Armor MK II.

  3. Considering War Machine will appear in Age of Ultron, and the 2.5" toy revealed will be sporting the War Machine MK II armor, I think it's safe to assume his 6" version will be released for the movie.


    I wish it would've been released as the variant for Iron Patriot during Iron Man 3, because if it's released for the movie wave of Age of Ultron, that means one less new figure.

  4. Greenlucario "Hope Hasbro does a Spider-Man themed wave every year now. "


    I am so totally with that idea. I believe most people feel that Spider Man is Marvel's flag ship character. With the wants for Spiderman being anything from Gwen to Mary Jane, Aunt May, Dr. Octopus, Kraven, Hydroman, Lizard, Shocker, Jack O Lantern, Sandman, Vulture and just that huge list of Spiderman rogues...including the various alternative spiderman costumes etc.. it could really fair well for Spidey fans.


    I hope that instead they do more Iron Man. Hasbro has been barely average with Iron Man's treatment.


    We got no action figures for the main villains of the two last movies (Whiplash and Aldrich Killian). Not even figures for their respective armies (Hammeroids and Extremis soldiers). They had the opportunity to make action figures for 35 new suits (the Iron Legion), and we didn't even get action figures for the main suits (Silver Centurion, Heartbreaker, Gemini, Shotgun, etc). They could easily have made a Igo BAF with 6 suits, and some of them could've had running changes and variants to make more armors (Silver Centurion and Blue Steel only differ color, Southpaw is like Red Snapper with one less special arm, etc).


    Additionally, the Mandarin (Trevor Slattery), War Machine MK II and Rescue action figures disappeared into the blue. The Blizzard action figures from Marvel Legends suffered the same fate.


    It took them 2 years to make the Bleeding Edge Iron Man action figure, and they released it once it was no longer Iron Man's main suit.I really want to see the Black & Gold armor from Marvel NOW! (they even have a sculpt, as seen in the 3.75" figures for Avengers Assemble). And finally, In Iron Man's last wave there were two villains which are more of Avengers villains than Iron Man villains (specially Ultron) instead of a modern Mandarin or Whiplash.




    Oops, I went a little bit off topic here.


    To keep it on topic: I'm excited for the Classic Spider-Man figure. Looks great, specially the accesories. Wish it came with a Peter Parker head, considering we've only gotten one Peter Parker head for ML (Toy Biz's Peter Parker Spider-Man which came with a Shocker trapped to a web in a wall)


    Is the sword that comes with Marvel Now Thor for the Thor figure or for one of the BAFs?


    It's for Thor, the early Marvel NOW promos had him with two swords and if memory serves no hammer. But the sword(s) never showed up in Thor: God of Thunder, so not sure why it's included.



    Those images were from Young Thor, from before he got Mjolnir.


    In Thor: God of Thunder, there was a sword which regular Thor wielded. It was All-Black the Necrosword. However, it looks nothing like the one from this action figure.

  6. Here are some other textures:




    As you could probably have seen, most of these textures were taken from the Ultimate Spider-Man and Spider-Man: Web of Shadows games.


    You can use some free-roam games to take some inspiration for your diorama, like the way some buildings are, or something like "destroyed" textures (textures for destroyed buildings or objects).

  7. Finally (probably not finally). Most of these ideas I'm giving you I took them from x66. Who was an user here, and has posted some cool images of his diorama in this forum (but hasn't been active since 2012):


    You can check his Photobucket album here. You'll see that in his Marvel city diorama, he uses a lot of the stuff I mentioned above. That's because x66 himself gave me some tips (like the hot dog stand being from WWE props, etc) when I had my mind set into making a diorama (never happened, I grew out of it). You'll see he uses Buffy action figures for citizens, as an example. His diorama is something to envy.

  8. And now the extra and background characters. You can't just have your heroes fighting villains without some cops trying to back up, or some civilians caught in the middle of the battle:


    This X-Men movie Sabretooth comes with a cop (on Amazon here):






    This Web-Trap Spider-Man comes with a hallow small-time crook with no articulation (on Amazon here):






    There are a lot of figures from even other fanchises which can be really useful for normal citizens:


    Like Agent Mulder (on Amazon here):






    Ghostbuster action figures also work (on Amazon here):






    And also Buffy the Vampire Slayer action figures, like these ones (on Amazon here):




    There are A LOT of Buffy the Vampire Slayer action figures which can be used as normal citizens in dioramas. A LOT.

  9. A Classic Spider-Man Series II action figure also came with a Daily Bugle billboard (on Amazon here):


    The Marvel Select Spider-Man comes with a broken car (the figure is obviously out of scale with Marvel Legends, but the car fits, I think) (on Amazon here):






    There's also this Spider-Man from Hasbro's Spider-Man Trilogy series:






    Toy Biz even released a Spider-Man Alleyway Playset (on Amazon here):


  10. Something you can do to make a diorama, is to put together numerous "mini-dioramas" and bases which came with different action figures.


    Some of the Toy Biz figures came with really cool mini-dioramas. One of the bests, I think, is this one, from the first Spider-Man movie (you can find it on Amazon here):


    There's also this Spider-Man Classics Series 6 Daredevil with a building ledge (on Amazon here):


    There's also this rather sweet Web Trap Spider-Man which comes with a streetlight (on Amazon here):


    A Battle Ravaged Green Goblin came with this window (on Amazon here):


    There was also a Super Poseable Spider-Man with a billboard:
