  1. The general consensus is that the figures who get made are the ones with mainstream recognition. That being said, having a series will definitely boost them a few points in desirability with the bean counters. I mean we did get that Defenders set inspired by the Netflix show, figures of Cloak and Dagger coinciding almost exactly with their show, you could probably even attribute that Nick Fury/Dirk Anger figure from a few years back to the Agents of SHIELD show... so who knows? If it helps, I dropped 25 bucks on a MOC ToyBiz Falcon last week. With my luck, that pretty much guarantees they'll release a better comic version pretty soon.
  2. Don't even torture yourself with "item numbers." Walgreens computers are useless.
  3. You know, the part of me that still wants to believe in Santa Clause and wishes on the first star of the night kinda hopes Marvel will see Stan's passing as a wake up call. A reminder of what comics once were, and could be again.
  4. I haven't tried it myself yet, but how about the unmasked Multiple Man head?
  5. Forget my list, forget your lists. In light of todays sad, sad news... there is only ONE Marvel figure we absolutely HAVE to have.
  6. I don't even know how to process this. I read the news a couple minutes ago and it hit me like a fist. I literally feel sick.
  7. Part of me wants to argue that the only reason Thing and Majik are so bloody hard to find is because they were released relatively right on the heels of Silver Surfer, and the distribution network in place between Walgreens and Hasbro just doesn't work that fast. Of course, the other part of me agrees completely. The last few weeks don't bode well for the X-Men exclusives. Not just because I couldn't find Thing or Majik, but because a lot of the stores I went to seemed to have lesser and lesser of an ML presence, with many having put them out as if they were an after-thought. Then there was at least one with no ML at all.
  8. Up until the Thing and Magik, I was never worried about finding a Walgreens exclusive. Seriously, the y were either all over my local stores or, in the case of Mr. F, I just ordered site-to-store. Not so with Thing or Magik, no, these little S.O.B.s STILL haven't shown up. Paid 30 bucks for Thing off Ebay, and a friend from college literally dropped a Magik in my lap when she visited a week or so back.
  9. Provided they were done in the same style as the AIM and HYDRA sets (two "buck" figures w/plenty of accessories), then I'll take: SHIELD Hand Kree Skrull Chitauri Nova Corps (the REAL one, not the dumpy mall cop Nova Corps from the MCU)
  10. Well, its been a couple pages, so I'll bring up the character who's become my "Big Want" of late... again. QUAKE!!! Seriously, what IS the hold-up!?! Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes, Agents of SHIELD, Marvel Rising; she's all over that fashion doll line. Where is the Marvel Legends version. A black Widow body, a Silk head w/minor alterations to the hair, and a new face deco; then throw in a pair of those energy ring effects that have come with everybody from Dr. Strange to Klaw. EASY! Or just meet me half-way. Give us that 1/12th. scale Rising line I talked about in another thread. It wouldn't be perfect, but I'll take what I can get. Just PLEASE, no exclusives, I don't think I could face the future knowing another 20 trips to Walgreens were in it.* * Apologies to Barney Fife.
  11. I completely agree, and the same can be said for capes. We go around crying for more articulation: better hip joints, ab-crunches, double elbows, double knees, ball-socket this, ankle-rocker that; and then all that super-articulation is rendered mute by saddling a figure with a coat/cape/skirt of hard plastic making even the act of just sitting down impossible.
  12. FASVB is right, the role has been recast with an older actress for Avengers 4.
  13. Actually, the cloth coat was the only thing I think ole' Remmy had going for him. Though I preferred the pleather version from the X-Legends boxed set.
  14. I'd give you Beast, but TB Gambit was to skinny, to short, and featured that trade-mark wonky ToyBiz articulation. Hasbro for the win.
