  1. The market's in a bad place right now, it's entirely possible Hasbro took that into account in lining up new product. Personally, I don't expect much, and most of that will probably be Spidey-centric. Hasbro's not about to let a movie tie-in go to waist. They MIGHT show a couple hints for the new anniversary stuff, but even that is a long shot. Hopefully, we'll all be surprised.
  2. I don't know. I see Hasbro probably wanting to put a little extra into this Anniversary wave, if for no other reason than, as someone else pointed out, Spidey is Marvel's big bread-winner. Plus, with prices rising, and LEGITIMATE shipping issues across the board, they may just decide to dangle a few extra carrots to keep the fan-boys happy.
  3. Absolutely. Iron Spider is one I've been after forever, provided they go the whole 9 yards. I'm talking waldo arms, etc.
  4. While the odd Spider-Villain or side character are always welcome in my collection, I'm having a hard time thinking of anything Spidey-wise I really NEED, at least to a point worthy of an Anniversary release. Still . . . That Retro Mary Jane/Gwen was all kinds of disappointing, so I wouldn't mind if they took another shot at MJ. If they had to, just take the old TRU 2-pack version and shove it in some new packaging with a bunch of accessories. I'd buy it. We're also already getting updated versions of Spidey-2099 and Secret Wars Spidey, so maybe another pass at more of the 'Verse variants? I'd personally love to see a pimped up, tricked out Spider-Noir. A decent (articulated) Spider-Ham maybe? Or a repackaged Sp//dr BAF with an articulated Peni Parker would be severely cool . . . and play right into Hasbro's wheelhouse. Oh, and count me in for the TV Spideys. A Nick Hammond version is something i haven't even dared dream possible.
  5. Yeah Buddy, I bet we can look forward to A LOT of anniversaries. Marvel Legends Anniversary, Spider-Man's Anniversary, X-Men's Anniversary, and my personal favorite . . . the anniversary of the day Hasbro figured out they can hyper-inflate their already ridiculous prices by adding an "ANNIVERSARY!!!" sticker to their packaging. Ooo, and don't forget the anniversary of the day AFTER that, when Hasbro realized they can strip down the "ANNIVERSARY!!!" figures and sell them AGAIN in the regular line. Thinking about having some T-shirts printed up for that bad-boy.
  6. Does it honestly matter one way or the other? No matter WHAT or HOW MUCH they reveal, it's all mitigated by our knowledge that distribution is crap . . . was crap . . . and is probably only gonna get worse.
  7. Dropped into Walmart this weekend, and low and behold, the only Legend on the pegs was Gamerverse Miles Morales. Unfortunately, when I got home, I realized some @$$-clown had pulled a repackage. Miles and all his accessories were there, but the Armadillo piece had been replaced with an Ursa Major arm! I'm usually more observant than that, but this one time I couldn't see past ole' Kid Arachnid. I decided to keep it anyway though. Legends are a tough find around here, and like I said, I was mostly just there for Miles. I figure if I have to buy him again, I can keep the arm and sell the figure on Ebay. It's not like I wasn't planning on selling off the MCUs from the wave anyway. It just bugs me that there are still dinks out there doing this sort of thing.
  8. I'll take it, assuming I can ever find it, but all things considered I'd rather have classic Ms. Marvel.
  9. Or the Guardians end up saving the day, but everyone else thinks it was Warlock who is so delusionally narcissistic (sort of a cosmic Barney Fife), he believes it himself.
  10. Gonna be honest, the only reason I would even consider getting this figure would be to get another web-line for the REAL Spider-Man.
  11. I think that may be the whole point. This whole thing is starting to remind me of an old X-Files episode (which in turn ripped off it's plot from a Superboy episode). The agents run into a female super-soldier developed in an experiment to create the perfect human weapon. The joke is, instead of a perfect physical specimen, the woman is slightly over-weight and plain looking. That just screams the kind of "Comedic Twist" Gunn would pull out of his butt for one of these movies.
  12. Captain C and Ultron arrived as promised. Tempted to go and see if my order is still listed as "Awaiting Carrier Pick-Up" on Gamestop's site, but honestly, I'd rather not know. Peggy was worth every penny, just to bad I have to get the other flotsam to finish Watcher. More importantly, I finally have Ultron, and thus, I have all the parts for Ursa Major. Meaning . . . . . . wait for it . . . Some days you get the bear, and some days the bear gets you.* * I have waited so long to say that . . .
  13. So, I ordered my Captain Carter and Ultron figures from Gamestop last Friday. As of yesterday morning, they were listed as shipped via FedEx (aw $#!+!), on the 10th. and currently in transit somewhere in Texas with a scheduled delivery of today by end of day, thus coming in just under the line of Gamestop's arrival in 2-to-4 days estimate. As of last night, my order status had been updated to "Awaiting Carrier Pick-Up." WTF? One way or another, how do you confuse "Shipped and Almost There," with "Hasn't Even Left the Warehouse Yet?" Seriously, post-pandemic half-assery is so much more of an adventure than pre-pandemic half-assery. Before 2020, your order could be cancelled, damaged, delayed or lost. Nowadays, there's no telling WHAT is gonna happen.
