  1. They do look amazing, at least online, I haven't seen them in hand. But at the end of the day I still can't bring myself to shell out $100 for cardboard. I won't say there's anything better in plastic, the best thing that comes to mind is the TMNT sewer playset from 2003/2004, but that is incredibly limited in retrospect.
  2. Yes, but I'd have to see the price point first. For instance I like what Ready Setz does, but for a cardboard diorama they've always seemed too expensive to me. Something in plastic would be ideal, but I'm sure the price would not be something I'd go for.
  3. Already got two releases of Venom in the last five years, in the Absorbing Man and Monster Venom waves, I'm assuming the OP meant Absorbing Man Venom. The figure is pretty much fine as is, and probably the latest release is still online somewhere for a decent price. We don't need another one at this point, there will inevitably be a new Venom release to coincide with Sony's sequel. As great as that would be, it completely ruins the continuity of the Eddie Brock symbiotes we already have, Anti-Venom, Toxin, and Venom all use the same buck, and though it has it's faults it's fine for what it is, and is very true to the source material regarding his origin. Not to mention it's a lot better than needing to see re-releases of all those Eddie Brock variants on the Omega Red buck instead of fresh releases in the Spider-Man waves.
  4. 3 Pack Magneto, no question. Select is out of scale, TB Series 3 is incredibly awkward and has some weird articulation left over from its previous life as Iron Man, the original Hasbro attempt is terrible, and while I like the black costume one from last year, it's just not the classic colors.
  5. Hopefully they give it some time though. This pattern of quickly re-releasing the figure is getting tiresome. I definitely want another one, that way I can use that Shadow King head, but I'm willing to wait awhile.
  6. Got a new Gambit off Amazon. Was swapping out the card throwing hand a few days ago on my original one and it just tore off at the peg, wasn't even being rough with it. Definitely something to watch out for if you're like me and swapping the hands every so often.
  7. Such a great character that really needs more representation across the board.
  8. I've noticed they aren't getting their stuff in as close to the release dates as they used to. I cancelled my order on Friday and then bought the 2 pack (in stock) off of Hasbro Pulse and it was here by Monday. Plus it was MSRP, rather than the BBTS mark up. Sadly I find myself using them less and less these days thanks to Pulse.
  9. Finally got the Hulk/Wolverine 2 pack in, and this is the best Hulk figure ever, bar none! Easily one of the top figures of the year!
  10. Yeah the sword thing isn't new. In fact it's pretty retro. His solo series showed him at least in the covers with a cutlass (see below), across most of his characterization Nightcrawler has been a "swashbuckler", and has even had writers taking inspiration from Eroll Flynn movies. The only modern instances of him favoring a sword are Marvel Ultimate Alliance 1 and 3, as well as Jason Aaron/Ed McGuinness run on Amazing X-Men. I guess you could also count Rick Remender's Uncanny X-Force, but that was AoA Nightcrawler, so not technically the same character. So while uncommon among his many appearances, Nightcrawler is no stranger to swords.
  11. No contest, Hasbro knocked this one out of the park. The head sculpt, especially the smiling one, is leagues beyond the ToyBiz head sculpt. The stature is better, the tail is better, the sculpt is better. The only thing that ToyBiz still reigns supreme on is articulation, and that's the only fault of this newer Nightcrawler, but it still has enough articulation to make it an amazing figure. I've also owned two copies of the ToyBiz Nightcrawler, purchased years apart, and both had issues with the hips, something that I haven't had with this new one.
  12. I would love to see a Spidey themed Retro Wave 1. Either Amazing Fantasy #15 styled Spidey or Alex Ross' design. 2. Classic Lizard, Ditko or later. 3. Cardiac 4. Vermin 5. Gwen Stacy or FA Mary Jane 6. Spider Armor Mk 1 If they did a classic Electro I'd rather they just did swappable hands and gave him the electricity effects from Storm rather than those old electricity fingers.
  13. Great question, touch choice. I guess I'll go 1970s, though I'm partial to some designs from each of these decades.
