  1. That's interesting, going for the carbonadium armor look from Vengeance of the Moon Knight. Doubt I'd get this, but I like that it's a different costume than we usually see.
  2. Picked up a complete Khonshu BAF, and it is excellent! Best BAF in a long time and as a Moon Knight fan, despite the show, I'm so glad it's spawned more figures and a greater focus on Moon Knight.
  3. Nothing new, but I came across the herald Thor figure, really happy I didn't pass on this one.
  4. Retro Ghost Rider came in with the rest of my PoL from Big Bad. Not sure if it's my favorite Hasbro GR yet, but it's a nice figure, and that card is stunning. Still hoping we see more stuff on that retro card.
  5. Got the 20th Cap, finally broke down and got one at MSRP after waiting for a discounted one and watching it just rise in price. Great figure, and even though I didn't think it could, it replaced the 80th Cap for me. Also got the Animated Spidey, only to have the lower ab crunch frozen, took off a bit of paint unfortunately to unstick it, which left a bit of a bad taste despite a very good figure.
  6. Stegron Toxin (Pat Mulligan) Phyla Vell (Quasar) Black Spectre Mantis (Comic DnA uniform) Same list as last year, didn't get to cross off anyone.
  7. Personally can't stand it, but it's helped my wallet to skip most of these releases.
  8. Best Newcomer: MCU Moon Knight, it's a great figure with great sculpt, and even though the show never met my expectations the figure is excellent and actually has brought me around on Marc's MCU re-design a bit. Best Repaint: MCU Winter Solider, I never got this one, it wasn't quite enough of an upgrade for me, but it really is superior in its head sculpts and that really sells this figure. Best New Costume: MCU Master Mordo, didn't pick this one up, but the colors and robes feel very much like a middle point between the usual MCU designs and the comic origins of the character. Best Villain: MCU Namor, I still haven't checked out Wakanda Forever, but this figure is clearly excellent from everything I've seen of it. I've never really thought of Namor as a villain, but he's clearly the best figure in terms of posing and sculpt in this grouping. Best Female: MCU She-Hulk, again, despite the show, this figure is so well done that you can't fault it. Clearly the articulation and sculpt are the best on this one compared to any others in this group. Best Animated/Gamerverse: Animated Spider-Man, To be fair, I hate the idea of cel-shaded figures, which is basically what this category is, minus Mr. Negative. But Spider-Man TAS, on one of the best articulated bodies the ML team has ever put out? You can't do better than that. I appreciate that the figure is a little small for a college age Spidey, but again, the articulation and 90s theming take the top spot for me.
  9. Got my D+ Moon Knight and Mr. Knight, now to start gathering up loose Khonshu pieces.
  10. Missed the first few, but looking over the results, some great stuff so far. Newcomer Gorr: Yes he's far from perfect, but the character and book were so good, I can't help but be happy to have any version of this one. Remake Lizard: Any figure that can dethrone a nearly perfect ToyBiz figure, one of the only ones left standing at this point, deserves all the love it can get. This Lizard is so nearly perfect. New Costume Baron Zemo (Classic): It's so crazy that we only just got this, but this one looks like it just stepped off the page. Re-Release Scarlet Witch (Retro): The perfect color combo elevating an already great figure. Villain Shocker: This one needs some love, and other than the unpainted lines it really is great. Female Agony: Pretty much only because I haven't gotten Spiral yet and it's nice to get a new character related to Spider-Man and Venom. Spider-Man Iron Spider: While flawed, this is probably my favorite costume other than the classic red and blue, so getting a figure as good as this one, even with it's flaws, is a major win. X-Men Toad: This figure got buried under the negativity surrounding the price, but in hand, it's one of the best of the year in terms of sculpt, paint, and articulation, not to mention the fact that we really needed a good Toad for the collection.
  11. Picked up Quake and the DD 3 pack came in. DD might not quite be worth the price of the pack on his own, but he's excellent, no regrets on this one, even with the underwhelming Bullseye.
  12. Got Gorr, even though it's not perfect, I'm still happy to have this one.
  13. Picked up a couple Happy Hogan sets when they were on sale at Amazon for $27, they make great blank bodies for Inner Demon heads. Just need to find a couple other cheap suit body options for the last two heads I've got.
  14. So glad they're finally in the DnA suits! C'mon Hasbro, give us this Mantis, a little green paint and I'll be all set.
  15. Mr. Negative and Inner Demon 2 pack x 2 for the end of the week haul. Could honestly do with a few more of these Inner Demons, but I need a break from ML for a bit.
  16. Major Amazon haul, both Spider-Man multi-packs came in yesterday. Really glad to have the Life Foundation symbiotes completed, and that Venom is a real standout, I only wish the classic McFarlane head sculpt fit better. The five pack, is still a lot of fun, even if it's not particularly essential. Happy to have all the Spider-Man characters I can get my hands on, Ultimate Symbiote Spidey might be the best of that box.
  17. Finally caught up to the Spider-Verse Spidey Noir, really great figure, and with the hat wearing head sculpt it might actually take the comic one's place in the display. Here's to the inevitable Peni Parker and SP/DR to coincide with the next movie.
  18. Sentry came in, wasn't real hyped for this one, but it's a solid figure in hand and a nice upgrade.
  19. Got Lizard, the bubble mailer had me pretty worried, but luckily, no damage to the figure. Easily my favorite release of the year.
  20. Got the Comic Black Panther from Amazon, this really is an excellent figure, I can't believe I almost passed this one up. It has a classic feel, but is also reminiscent of EMH in the choice of feet. Lizard will be in on Thursday, and I can't wait, easily my most anticipated figure, and I'd easily say it will be a Top 3 figure for me for the year, if not number one. As for Star-Lord, I'm not sure, I don't have much of a connection to that costume, but since it's referenced in Annihilation Conquest I might eventually pick it up.
  21. Disappointed if this pans out to be true. Multiverse of Madness was pretty underwhelming, and for a film this big, they need someone better.
  22. Picked up Everett Ross, happy to get the character even if the figure's just a rerelease. Bag-Man also came from Target, now if they'd just restock those Spider-Verse Spider-Man Noirs.
  23. Got my Renew Your Vows 2 pack. Excellent 2 pack, and probably the best all purpose Spider-Man from ML.
  24. Big BBTS/Amazon haul: Got Iron Spider, First Appearance Spidey, Toad, and Firelord. When that Legends drought ends, it pours.
  25. Looks great, I'll definitely get this one, but like everyone else has said, the price is ridiculous. I was hoping we'd get a year or so before hitting $30. Guess I'll just skip a couple figures to justify it. Something tells me the amount of money Hasbro makes with these price hikes isn't getting them far, I know I'm cancelling pre-orders usually two previous ones for every new figure they show that I want.
