  1. That's what I want. If not a full Inhumans wave, at least a boxed set (but a wave would be better).
  2. How many Fantastic Four franchises are there?
  3. True, but I could argue that Transformers is ONE franchise, and you may get 4 or 5 more waves throughout a given year. FF is only one of MANY franchises under the Marvel banner, every one of which must be serviced. There's no guarantee there will be another FF wave anytime soon, so you have to get your big guns up there right off. That's probably why, after waiting so long, Hasbro is suddenly hitting us with 90s X-Men left and right. Lord knows when we'll get another X-Wave.
  4. You gotta love marketing. I remember back in the day when Iron Man might get a new suit of armor once every few years . . . MAYBE. Now, after the 90s 'toon and the movie franchise, plus every artist putting their own spin on the armor; Tony goes through suits like the POTUS goes through pens. Hasbro has to love that.
  5. No, It's like a company giving people what they want, even when a vocal minority, claiming they speak for everyone, says they're not.
  6. Quite a ballsy move. Release a figure visually based on a video game that most everyone's' first reaction to was to be POed at how the characters looked (I actually like the designs). I hope they make more. I'm kind of a sucker for modern non-movie interpretations of classic heroes.
  7. I've been thinking the same thing for a SHIELD set. Wouldn't hate a similar Kree set for that matter . . . or the Hand.
  8. Uh, I think you kinda missed your own point. See, there's a reason they repeat main characters. Main characters makes fans happy to. As a kid, I could personally attest to the disappointment of hitting the stores and not finding those main characters, Duke, Snake Eyes, He-Man etc. I never understood the argument that they should make less of a given line's main character. That's like saying KFC shouldn't sell so much chicken.
  9. Actually, I don't think that's been established at all. I think most people are "middle of the road" about the whole thing. A Marvel Legend is a Marvel Legend. if its a good figure (and sometimes even if it's not) they'll buy it. I don't know how many time I've read variations on the sentence: "Well, I don't buy MCU figures at all EXCEPT . . . "
  10. Well, for all it's problems. Inhumans played itself straight, not as an endless series of frat-house comedies, each worse than the last. As for New Mutants? When the producers themselves come out and say they're doing it as a teen horror movie, that should tell you something. But by all means, prove me wrong. Give me an honest reason Inhumans was bad. Something besides "cringy."
  11. So basically you're saying the more modern villains? I couldn't agree more. As much as I love the classics, they're starting to repeat themselves. A few modern villains peppered in there will keep the line fresh.
  12. He was in their appearance in the X-Men toon, that's good enough for me. . . . and Peter David was NEVER good.
  13. I actually saw Inhumans, it wasn't that bad. Just one of those shows people get off on putting down just because. What I'd be more worried about is this turning out to be yet another case of using a comic book property's name, as a marketing tool to push some low-rent, totally unrelated concept that would never fly on its own. Sort of like what they tried to do with that New Mutants movie.
  14. I didn't mean people didn't KNOW Psycho Man, I just meant everyone is calling for Galactus, Super-Skrull, etc., it might be cool if they gave us someone nobody expected. Nice call on Devos though.
  15. What if they went and gave us a total dark-horse character by doing someone like Psycho-Man? Wouldn't mind that, and frankly the constant stream of "redos" gets old after a while. Besides, there'll be plenty time for Galactus, Super Skrull, etc. later.
