  1. I would like to see the Infinity Saga become a mainstay subline. I would like a "dependable" source of figures for older movies. Eleven years and counting waiting for Whiplash, Hasbro.
  2. With the previous two figures being from Age of Ultron, I feel like this one could have used the War Machine paintjob from that movie instead. I mean, they most definitely will re-release this figure with those colors in due time, but with the Iron Man MK 43 being a repaint away from the Iron Man MK 42, I think it would have made more sense to release War Machine MK 2 close to the MK 43, and then Iron Patriot MK 1 close to Iron Man MK 42.
  3. The posters for this movie have been pretty crappy, so I guess it's fitting this one looks like a toilet being flushed 😛
  4. I preferred MCUCollector's review of this figure. It really drove the point home of how much of an improvement this figure is to the Infinity War version, from the belt being more detailed to the torso being more pronounced to the head being more proportionate to the rest of the body.
  5. Miles was created in 2011 so this year is his 10th anniversary, but these are coming out in 2022. Maybe it's got to do with the Into the Spider-Verse sequel coming out in 2022? But since that movie is coming out in October, maybe there's no special reason behind it. Or maybe these were planned for this year's anniversary but their development was delayed? I think it's more likely that there's no big motive aside from Miles being popular.
  6. Watched the movie the other day. I went in with little expectations because I've never been sold on its existence but left pleasantly surprised. The cinematography is beautiful and I really appreciated the fact that it was more character-driven and slower paced. In some other movies, you can feel the character moving at a pace the plot demands, but this film allowed its scenes to breathe and its characters to shine in the smaller moments. Speaking of characters, the cast was a lot of fun and it was pretty well-balanced. Although Ikaris and Sersi are clearly the leads, it doesn't feel like they're the only characters that matter. Even the smaller ones like Gilgamesh and Makkari didn't feel like they were just there. I also gotta mention how much fun Kingo and Druig were. I found a few of the movie's narrative choices a bit jarring. Nothing movie-breaking or detracting, but still jarring. Not gonna go into detail because this forum has no way to tag spoilers, but one of them had to do with the role of Ikaris and the other with the role of Kro. Overall, out of this year's films, I think Shang-Chi is still the best. Eternals is a very close second, and Black Widow gets an uninspired bronze.
  7. I wonder if restrictions apply depending on the region. We don't have IMAX here, so it'd be my first taste of its aspect ratio.
  8. Savage Spider-Man isn't an Untold Story-type of deal. It does takes place in "the present" since its predecessor, Non-Stop Spider-Man, featured elements from the current Spidey book. This is kinda how Iron Man has been in the same continuous adventure in space for almost 10 issues, but he's also popping up on Earth in books like Avengers. Both books are released concurrently but don't take place in the exact window of time, it just means that Tony's adventures back on Earth chronologically take place later in time than his current solo adventure in space.
  9. I think it would have a smart move if they had made it with four waldoes, but they were also detachable. That way collectors could choose between Iron Spider or The Initiative's Scarlet Spider by just popping off one of the waldoes.
  10. Happy for Iron Spider. I hope that metallic red makes it to the final product.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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:
  14. 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.
  15. That's a fair take. Unfortunately Spider-Man being Spider-Man means this figure was too convenient to release to pass up.
  16. It's neat to see Lim do interiors again. Most of his modern work has just been variant covers.
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
