  1. A buddy and I just picked up the Walmart exclusive Thanos and both figures had an extremely loose ab crunch, if you hold them but the chest and wiggle it the entire lower body moves. The joint only ratchets back once and that's the only way to keep the figure from slouching forward.

     

    Really sucks considering the past few figures I've purchased, from multiple stores and online have had terrible ab joints, idk what's going on. But, does anyone else have similar issues with their Thanos figure, and any tips on how to 'fix' an ab joint besides super glue?

  2. I REALLY can't wait for this wave. I wasn't collecting back when Hasbro's Carnage dropped and I missed out on their Venom for the same reason too. Really looking forward to this wave, I'm also hoping we get a movie version of Venom too, I think that would be nice with all the MCU Spideys.

  3. I used to get them here and there when I was much younger, my memories a bit fuzzy but after checking marvellegends.net I guess Movie Daredevil was the first one I ever got. I know I started off with the Spider-Man Classics line though, I really loved those figures. The first figures I got when I started collecting recently though were Bucky Cap and Stealth variant Extremis Iron Man.

  4. I tend to go from one extreme to the other when it comes to collecting, but I find that selling anything is a bad idea because as soon as you get back into it you'll be kicking yourself in the butt over whatever was sold. What helps me get back into them is checking out the latest news on the figure line, hitting up amazon, and ebay to see what they have going on sale wise, and definitely reposing the figures, although I admit that can get frustrating some times.

  5. I agree - I think he looks pretty cool! Hopefully you'll find he was worth it once he arrives. I've bought a couple loose figures from a particular seller in China that showed up with gunk in the joints, scratches that weren't in the listing picture, etc. so I won't be buying from that person again. I'm sure you'll have better luck. :)

    Thanks, I hope it's alright when I get it. Sucks that you had to go through that though :\

     

    This same thing happened to me as well, lol. I was looking for a ML BAF Red Hulk and saw one no one was bidding on for like $40. Put a bid in and then realized it was a custom with Red Hulks head, dohh!! It ended up being pretty cool though

    Lol, it's so easy to get caught up in the moment when you're looking for a particular figure and see it for a great price. I'm glad that it ended up working out for you though, this gives me hope for mine.

     

    You could have requested a cancel transaction sellers usually will do it rather than have to deal with un paid buyer.

    I'm not sure how to do that, and I paid for it right away. I think it's too late to cancel it anyway :\

     

    Dude! That looks awesome and it's a GREAT price!!! The green Hulk from the two pack regularly sells for over $50 to $60 loose and Red Hulk is usually up around $60 to $70...and this is basically a combo of both. With a nice, custom paint job no less! If you get it and don't want it I'd totally buy if from you.

    Thanks, like I said I just hope it looks ok in person. If I decide I don't want it I'll contact you first about selling it.

  6. I think the US Agent sculpt would be great for a new Cap, but does he have the chain-mail on his shoulders and chest a Cap sculpt would need? I suppose it would be easy enough for Hasbro to simply do a new torso for Cap and just use the US Agent parts for the rest of the figure.

     

    I would be all for a new traditional Cap figure in the ML line.

     

    Wouldn't that build be too small for Cap though? The USAgent body is the same one that the Bucky Cap uses, and he's kinda short if you ask me.

  7. Yeah, I buy loose all the time Devilbat, I open up all of my figures anyway. Also, thanks to both of you guys, I feel a little better about the purchase already :) I think I'll just wait until I get it in the mail and check the figure out to see if I like it or not. I mean, I do want a Red Hulk, hopefully it looks good in person.

     

    Thinking about it, I do have a question for you guys now. Do you think that is the BAF piece Red Hulk head on the figure?

    I would think so, since it would have been a simple head swap.

    Ah, alright. Thanks again haha!

     

    Well the good is it still looks like a nice figure, paint seems to be done well ect. But it did say 'custom' right in the title of the listing =\ At least its a nice piece to add to the collection which is always awesome.

    Yeah it does look good, convincing enough to fool me lol. I know it says custom in the listing title too, it didn't click in my brain until after I paid and went back to look at it though :\. You're right about it being a nice addition, even if it isn't the actual BAF it looks it, at least in the pictures, I'm not sure how good it's going to look in person. It should be fine though. The price was a bit steep but considering the going rate of regular BAF Rulks, I think I made out alright.

     

    It will be nice to add to my collection as another bigger sized figure too. The only other big sized guys I have is a really old First appearance Gray Hulk and the Mac Gargan Venom(who isn't really that big lol) I also think Rulk is a really cool character and I'm a big fan of his character design.

     

    One of my main concerns at this point though is paint chipping. The seller mentions it in the item description, which I also neglected to read until after I bought it >.<

     

    I am glad that this happened with something I don't mind having though. It was an error on my part, and was bound to happen soon or later. At least this way I can add a nice piece to my collection. And if you think about it, in a way, it's a one of a kind piece lol(that's stretching it, I know)

  9. :hulk:

    Ugh.... I just made a pretty big mistake. I had this auction saved in my watch list and saw that there was around five minutes left in the bid. It was for a Red Hulk, so I was all over that especially since the current bid was only $32. I ended up bidding $37 and won the auction. However I didn't realize until after I won the auction and paid for it that it was just a repainted Green Hulk from the TRU two pack, but it has the Red Hulk's head. Another thing that really sucks is that I didn't realize that it's shipping from Bangkok, Thailand -_- so it's probably a bootleg knowing my luck. Also, because it's from Thailand the shipping was another $16 so I paid around 50 for it, and it's not gonna get here until around Oct. 23 and Nov. 5. I realize that this is all my fault for not reading the listing properly, I got caught up in the bid and overdid it.

     

    What a mistake lol. But I guess with using eBay this was bound to happen at least once, at least I didn't loose my shirt over it.

     

    Here's the Listing for anyone that wants to check it out. Maybe let me know how badly I messed up...

  10. Well, no Marvel Legends for me this week, but I have a ROML Series 1 Ghost Rider and a Toy Biz series 6 Deadpool on the way through mail. However I stopped by a big indoor flea market today and managed to get a McFarlane Metal Gear Solid Series 1 Grey Fox Stealth Variant for only $10 bucks, really happy about that! He's in six inch scale though so he can sort of fit in with my Legends.

  11. I know how you feel, I love the figure and am glad I made the choice to get it. I figure it will only get harder to find overtime.

    Yeah, that's a good way of looking at it, haha. I just want to get him in the mail thought so I don't have to worry about any broken parts or anything like that. Which isn't really a problem but I'm just overly cautious because I spent so much on this guy.

  12. Well I must admit it, I caved in and purchased a Toy Biz Deadpool. I can't wait for that bad boy to arrive, i'll post pics in the hauls thread when it arrives.

    FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

    UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

     

    I also just caved and bought a loose complete Deadpool. Now I'm not happy about the price at all but I've wanted this guy so badly I just finally bought it. That way I can be done with it and finally enjoy the figure and have it be the 'center piece', if you will, of my collection. I'll also be able to move onto other figures now too haha.
