  1. Aren't you the one ranting though? Also, what facts did you even bring up? I just see you talking about things that "will" happen. Did you see the future? Are you a wizard? I mean, do you have the crazy talk down to a T.
  2. I can't believe the people saying that Marvel was trying to bury and ignore Mar-Vell and trying to establish Carol as the one and only Captain Marvel were right. Look at them, featuring him prominently in a variant cover, making his legacy the center of Carol's new story, teasing his potential return-- Wait a second.
  3. I'm a bit disappointed the Silver Surfer isn't using that new pinless standard male body that Hasbro teased a while back. It would have been fun for them to premiere the two standard pinless molds at the same time with these two figures from the same set. The Spider-Man wave looks pretty solid, but I find it annoying that Hasbro packed only one extra set of hands with those movie Spideys. Their boxes look so barred compared to the Gamerverse Miles. However, since I'm an Iron Man collector, the only figure I will be getting will be Jameson for a business casual Tony Stark. I'm happy he comes with two sets of hands, but I wish it included neutral hands. Maybe with some heat I can make those hands a bit less splayed. As for the Walmart exclusive, I feel like Hasbro could have done better. It's literally almost just original figure from the Hydro-Man wave, but with the Infinity War 2-pack Peter Parker head and the webline they've reused time and time again. I said "almost" because I noticed it seems to have a new lower torso and crotch, and slightly different paint apps to account for the tweaks they did to the costume for the new movie. So Hasbro gets some points there. However, since modern Hasbro face sculpts make the hair a separate piece, I think they could at least have given him a better hairstyle than the Infinity War Prince Charming. I also would have liked to see painted or blackwashed weblines. At least I hope they use a matte plastic instead of the shiny plastic from the original release.
  4. Yes. He debuted the bearded looking during Time Runs Out where he also lost an eye, but kept it for a few years even after regaining his full sight.
  5. I don't know what to think about this game until they show the gameplay next week, but I do feel like it's a bold choice to base an entire game on one corner of the Marvel Universe. At least it's not the upteenth Marvel game that revolves around colliding alternate realities.
  6. That this is a forum with a stressed focus on action figure collecting and almost every single time news comes out, the conversation is always shifted to action figures and people's wishlists?
  7. I saw the article in here, but not an accompanying thread for it. So I figured to bring up the new images for MAFEX's classic Iron Man here. The price point is pretty steep, but I have to admit this figure does everything I wish Hasbro had done. The visible eyes under the faceplate, the more Bronze Age-looking Tony headsculpt, the roller skates. On top of that, it comes with a Proton Cannon. Considering this weapon doesn't fit with classic Iron Man, it feels almot like it was done purposefully for Hasbro's modular Iron Man. My only complaint about this figure is the alternate faceplate. Just to play along with the ridiculousness of the roller skates, I wish it they had given him a proper nose instead of the Alex Ross-style nose indentations. Even though by no means Hasbro did a bad job with their classic Iron Man figures, I can't help but feel like this one is the definitive classic Iron Man. The price point does hurt, and on top of this MAFEX has other Iron Man-related figures in the pipeline, but I feel like I can't just not have it. At least the June 2022 release date means I can make a "MAFEX Iron Man fund" so it doesn't hurt as much when I pull the trigger.
  8. While shoving old figures in new packages is something Hasbro does, the Titan Hero figures didn't exist back in 2007. There is no old 12" 5-POA figure of Raimi Spider-Man for them to re-release now. And if they were making figures for characters not in the movie, I think it would make more sense for them to re-release the Titan Hero figures of previous MCU Spider-Man movies, the same way they're re-releasing Mysterio, Vulture, Iron Man and Spider-Man's previous suits in the basic figure line. I think it's a stretch to think they would be making a figure of Raimi Spider-Man if he's not in the movie. Not that I'm not taking this leak with a grain of salt, but I think there are better reasons to doubt its legitimacy.
  9. So glad they didn't waste a Hasbro stream on these on account that we have known of them for almost a year.
  10. I really wish they'd do the third "No" book to bridge the end of Aaron's run with whatever comes next, the same way they did the first one to bridge what came before Aaron with the beginning of Aaron's run. While I know No Surrender and No Road Home purposefully avoided using Iron Man, Cap and Thor to give the spotlight to smaller characters, I would like to see them tackle the Big Three. Mark Waid is currently at DC, but I don't think he's exclusive, so I think it's doable. And if they couldn't get him I wouldn't be too upset since Al Ewing and Jim Zub are my favorite writers of the trio.
  11. I feel like the Iron Man, Iron Man 2 and Incredible Hulk covers are the better ones. The Captain America one feels too barren and the Thor one could have used more passes at improving its composition.
  12. They do. Stories like Ultron Forever, Avengers No Surrender and Avengers No Road Home are very good and earnest examples of the celebration of the Avengers' history and mythos. The problem the Avengers face today is one specific writer whose name is Jason Aaron.
  13. When you put it like that-- you are most certainly wrong. Because Matt doesn't feel unworthy of being Daredevil. He's still very much Daredevil and is even serving his sentence as Daredevil because of superhero law shenanigans. Matt was also willing to become a fugitive since he felt being Daredevil and being there to protect Hell's Kitchen was more important than serving his sentence even if he was guilty. Whereas Jane took the Thor mantle because "there must always be a Thor," Elektra is doing it as a gesture of good faith to show Matt that she is more than an assassin, so she can then get Matt's help later on. So Matt only turned himself in because Elektra would take his place. Matt also approves of Elektra keeping Hell's Kitchen safe. If I'm not mistaken, for most of Jane's tenure as Thor, Odinson was against her running around using his name and hammer. Also, unlike Aaron's run, Matt is very much still the protagonist of his book since his story in jail is still followed. Whereas if I'm not mistaken, Thor went missing for a long portion of Jane's tenure, and he was pretty much phased out of the book. On the other hand, this book focuses on Matt as much as it focues on Elektra. So yeah, your bad. I mean, unless you want to give it another shot at twisting the synopsis of a story tht you most definitely haven't read.
  14. "... but there are threads feeding into the next year's worth of stories." So that means there's at least one more year of this? The only thing that will make me feel happy is if I think of it as the final stretch. Please be the final stretch.
  15. Of course. How could I forget that in Aaron's run, Thor turned himself in after commiting manslaughter and when Jane Foster sought his help to thraw The Hand, Thor told her off, so she decided to become the new Thor to get his his good graces by keeping Hell's Kitchen safe in his absence? I can't believe this Daredevil run is completely and absolutely ripping it off to a T. It's an exact copy and the one similarity isn't just superficial.
  16. The figure only comes with one set of hands, so the only way she could hang on the Hydra Stomper is to have the shield in the wrong arm. That being said... that could also indicate that the figure should have come with an extra set of hands.
  17. Excited for the Spider-Man and Venom one due to the runs they're promoting. I have very high hopes for Al Ewing and Ram V's Venom run, and I'm hopeful for the new Spider-Man status quo. On the other hand, the only thing that will get my attention from the Avengers and Hulk issue is if there's any indicative that Aaron is wrapping up his Avengers run.
  18. I initially didn't want to chime in, but I'm genuinely both amused and confused here. Is your argument that the movie wasn't well-received or that it wasn't popular? Because you start claiming that the movie wasn't as popular but then you "disprove" that box office earnings don't mean a movie is good, despite the fact that whether the movie is good or not doesn't really factor in disputing its popularity. A movie can still be popular even if it was bad, as you reflected with your examples. A film's box office earnings very much reflect their popularity. If a movie is popular, it gets watched. And Far From Home was the first Spider-Man movie to pass the 1 billion mark at the box office (x), and it was Sony's highest-grossing movie ever (x). And moving into the film's critical and audience reception, Far From Home holds in Rotten Tomatoes 90% critic score and 95% audience score (x). In Metacritic it holds 69% critic score and 7.5/10 user score (x). In IMDb it holds 7.5/10. In CinemaScore, it has an A grade. In addition to that, it won or was nominated to several choice awards. And somehow... thinking this movie did well is in the minority?
  19. I'm always happy for more Iron Man comics (as long as they're not written by Cantwell) and I've heard good stuff about Landy's previous Marvel work so I'm hopeful. I also like it when Marvel remembers that the whole point of the Iron Man / Captain America rivalry is that they're supposed to be really close friends first and foremost so you know it's serious when they butt heads, so I'm hoping this book portrays their friendship properly.
  20. 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.
