  1. It really IS a Build-a-Bear wave! I'm so ashamed this didn't occur to me till just now.
  2. Don't really wanna speculate on the two mystery Retro-FF characters, I'm just hoping the Four are in their blue-'n-whites. With the retros being so closely modeled after the 90s lines, it seems like a foregone conclusion . . . but don't quote me on that. Also happy to see them doing AOA Magneto. I always loved that version of the character, and back in the 5" days he became my go to Maggy.
  3. I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure I read somewhere that Hasbro was phasing out their face-printing process. If true, this could be the best we're gonna get.
  4. I hope Captain Peggy makes the cut, cause that would be my big want. I'd be willing to bet money T'Challa/Star-Lord gets the treatment. It's Black Panther, it's Guardians of the Galaxy, talk about a no-brainer. I'd give a couple extra likelihood points to the WWII Iron Man as well. From what little we see, looks like it wouldn't be hard at all to dress up the same tool as a Mark 1 suit sometime down the line. That alone would make it attractive to the bean-counters.
  5. Not really sure, honestly. KonMari is a great discipline for keeping your collection manageable, but occasionally mistakes are made.
  6. I'm not gonna tell you how much I just put out for a 3-pack Ms. Marvel. I just had to have that figure again.
  7. MCU Iron Patriot arrived around 9 pm last night. Gotta love those Amazon delivery drivers. Man, this is an awesome figure.
  8. There are actually quite a few figures from 'Verse I'd love to see done. Most important, a Miles in his actual final Spider-Man suit.
  9. So you say. Personally, I'd rather have a 10" BAF that ALL of us can get, than a 2-3 foot monstrosity made because someone at Hasbro got a copy of MattyCollector's playbook.
  10. I don't know about Wenwu, but they did confirm in "Marvel One-Shot: All Hail the King" that there IS an actual Mandarin, and he apparently wasn't happy with Trevor's charade. As for the figures themselves, I'm not really about the MCUs anymore, but I loves me a good martial arts adventure movie. So, I'll be buying 'em.
  11. Made an early morning run to my local Wally-World. Looks like they had a fresh case of House of X figures on the pegs. I already had them, but decided to finally pull the trigger on replacing my sold-off Mar-Vell.
  12. You do realize that a character like Galactus CAN'T BE MADE IN 1/12 SCALE. I don't care if you go BAF, HasScam, or hire a really tall Hasbro intern to wear a Galactus suit. God, I love it when people throw scale in the argument.
  13. But we CAN get a Galactus. Do it as a BAF. That way everybody can have one, not just those who are willing/able to drop 3-500 bucks on a single toy.
  14. Yeah, Holo-Iron is pretty weak, but that's the only way to get UM.
  15. You know, it's weird. When Jay mentioned Ursa Major was the BAF, I thought it was some new armored character I hadn't heard of yet. The thing is, I've KNOWN who Ursa Major is for years, and have actually wanted a figure of him done forever. For whatever reason, it just didn't connect till I saw the photos. In any case, the wave is strong enough that I just preordered the whole set . . . something I rarely do.
  16. First and foremost, good on Hasbro for doing Mod. Iron Man. Been waiting for him since the Robert Hays cartoon. That not withstanding, if they DO make Galactus their next HasScam offering, I may seriously consider whether it's worth going on with this line.
  17. No matter what price it ends up as, it gets a hard maybe in my book. I already have a domino that I'm very found of. As far as Cannonball's legs? I'm not as forgiving as I used to be, and I just don't see rewarding Hasbro for going back to fix a bone-head FUBAR they should never have made in the first place. Crap, why not just do the Domino as a normal priced single and include a pair of Cannonball legs as a pack-in? It's not like they've never done that before.
  18. Always up for a good laugh . . . which is why Ragnarok and all other reminders of the MCU's ongoing "Douche-Comedy" phase make me cry a little on the inside.
  19. I love it! Most of us are just praying we even find one, and you're talking potential variants and army-building? The optimism no-prize goes to you my friend.
  20. Difficult or not, I'm going to find him. There is a very short list of characters I've wanted since long before there was a Marvel Legends line. Classic Nova is at the top of that list.
  21. You want an Iron Clad argument against extra articulation? Check out the ToyBiz Falcon. Talk about nightmare fuel.
  22. Ended up canceling my House Magneto from Amazon this weekend when I found it at one of my area Targets.
  23. Please, Lord, no more skirts! If ever there was a wave that requires unhindered articulation it's THIS one. Those had better be soft plastic.
  24. Commemorating Hasbro's acquisition of the Fortnite 1/12th action figure license, Hasbro is releasing a "Hunters" 5-pack including figures of: Sarah Connor (Terminator), Daryl (Walking Dead), Lara Croft (Tomb Raider), Predator (Predator), and Ripley (Alien). The set will include unique weapons and back-bling for each figure as well as all pieces necessary to complete a build-a-figure Xenomorph. Resealable packaging is designed to resemble Jonesie's Portal Device. The set will be available exclusively at 5-Below stores.
