  1. Agree with @Rukkdeez about Classic Warlock and Classic Drax (Starlin), and also about Mephisto, which someone else also mentioned. Mephisto is absolutely at the top of my list. I'm convinced that if they did Mephisto in a classic Starlin way they could shift a lot of units. NB: Crediting Starlin as *author*, not necessarily artist. Perez and Lim were as important.
  2. I'll admit that I've been WAY out of the loop in the MU Comic Universe for a while now, but long ago we saw Doom try to usurp Galactus (Secret Wars), and that didn't end so well for Doom. I LOVE Doom, but to Galactus and Thanos he is never more than an irritant, easily dispatched.
  3. Forget BAF and the gamble that entails for Hasbro. For a Super Skrull with all the different parts I'd gladly pay a 25-30% premium over the average single figure. It CAN'T be that hard! But that's only if it's done right. Gotta be on an appropriate body/torso sculpt. No doubt they've already got molds to do the rest.
  4. Oh, and Cable, I think you have to put Thanos Imperative in that list. Solid from beginning to end. Just finished Annihilation (yeah, yeah) but I found it often disjointed, although I did read it as a 3-part TPB so that probably wasn't the best way. Still, Thanos Imperative didn't require a bazillion crossovers to tell its story.
  5. Black Order look great...Thanos...not so much. That statue certainly isn't representative of his garb in Annihilation as far as I recall.
  6. That's true now, but Legends is really doing a good job with figures. Distribution still sucks, but the figures are tight. It's really a weird transition...I checked this evening and EVERY MU-scale figure I want is in stock, yet I don't feel the compulsion to buy them. If they were in MU packaging?! Sh!t....
  7. You, sir, are INSANE! I've finally gotten one at more-or-less-retail, but that is an unbelievable deal.
  8. Oh, snap, you're right! We DEFINITELY need more Wolverines, Cyclops's (sp???), Colossuses (Colossai?), et al. ...they're SO interesting! Oh, wait...no they're not interesting at all. Ruling stands: NO MORE X-MEN. BO-RING. Apocalypse and end it. The rest are a waste of time. One must be a complete spacker to value X-Men over the rest of the MU...
  9. We already have Archangel and Magneto and two awesome Sentinel versions, with Scarlet Witch announced...make a new Apocalypse and be done with X-Men...concentrate the resources in more important places...
  10. Trading has largely slowed down because there isn't s#it to trade imo! There was a lot of MU trading when figures were being consistently released (at least, based on Hasbro's definition of "consistent"). That said, I've tried a couple times to trade for ML but haven't had any takers. That said, Heisenberg, what would you take in trade for Carnage? ML or MU. And how much does ML retail for where you live?
  11. tl;dr... BAFs...Sentinel, M.O.D.O.K., Iron Monger...Galactus if you didn't get the MU MasterWorks version (which is better)...Red Hulk...Annihilus...FFF...I think that about covers must-have BAFs...unless you're an X-Men kinda guy...
  12. Yeah, man, I looked everywhere. They even left a ladder out on the aisle right in front so you know I climbed that thing and surveyed the entire store! I stashed a Stryfe...my younger son was ambivalent about it... As for TRU employees...it would be nearly impossible for the TRU muckety-mucks to monitor the rank-and-file, unless the RaF are dumb enough to give them their eBay seller names. And that totally doesn't rule out them making verbal deals with whomever to funnel all the good stuff into small hands...
  13. Just got back from a TRU Rego run...they had tons of Stryfe, Cyclops, and Wolverine, but not a single Storm or Magneto...and I was there within 5 minutes of opening. I'm starting to suspect that the good figures are being held back by employees or a scalper has made a deal with one of them. It's impossible for there to be at least 5 of each of those figures and not one Storm or Magneto within that window. I'm not too fussed...I just want Magneto, and I'm sure I'll get him at some point...even if I have to go to Times Square...blecchh...
