  1. Transformative? Isn't that one of those words used to describe low-rent comic writers when they turn existing characters into something they're not/never were in the name of achieving posterity? Good riddance.
  2. Not me. It's a cool figure to be sure, but when I think Iceman, I think Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends, teen college student. That makes the Juggernaut version perfect, but that's just me. On the same token, I fully intended to use the AoA Kitty Pryde as my goto Kitty . . . until the Excalibur news broke. Now there's no contest.
  3. I believe he also used the term "Mega-Crap." An appropriate description if ever there was one.
  4. Nope. Fallen Surfer, then Nova, then Quasar, and wrapping up with Binary.
  5. Nick Fury, Red Skull, Hank Pym / Yellowjacket, Coulson, Wong, the Ancient, maybe extra parts to turn Strange Supreme into Strange? That's the trouble with trying to fit an entire movie or series into a single wave, you'll never get everyone.
  6. I really wish the character selection were better, because I really love the animated styling. Thus far, the only figures I'm even considering buying (and keeping) are Captain Carter and Hydra-Stomper. Then again, I find myself reexamining exactly how much I truly NEED a Watcher, so I may just leave this wave at the wayside and stick with the straight comic stuff.
  7. Typical. You know, getting the Iron man I've been waiting years for DID give me a temporary boost of enthusiasm at a time when my interest in collecting had fallen just about as low as its been in a long time. Now that enthusiasm's gone, and I find myself, as always, sick of Hasbro's crap.
  8. Please. They could make Forbush Man the next HasCam money cow, and people would sign up for it.
  9. Has anybody seen Ursa Ultron in the wild? At this point, I've seen several full UM waves . . . except HIM.
  10. I know they specifically said the SHIELD guys don't have a preorder date yet. I assume that holds for the Skrull as well, but I was still locked in on the SHIELD guys so I didn't really pay any attention after that.
  11. I didn't say I didn't want him, he just doesn't illicit the level of passion in me that some other characters do. For what it's worth, he's a villain that hasn't been done. For that alone, if Hasbro makes him, I'll give him a good home.
  12. In my experience, chipping and flaking has never really been an issue with vac-plating. Mostly it was tarnish and rub-off.
  13. Yay . . . and crap, but mostly YAY!!! It's a 3-pack . . . with KITTY!!! CB, Megan, AND Kitty!!! I love it! On the down side, Armadillo? Really!?! Morlun, Miles and Shriek not withstanding, I was really looking forward to NOT getting this wave. Looks like i'm on the hook for another one. That Skrull troop builder is sweet, but the SHIELD 2-pack blows it away. Gonna have to grab a couple of those. Might even pick up that Walmart Spidey figure.
  14. Not to worried about finding Tigra or Herc, but I just know I'm gonna have the devil's own time tracking down Ultron.
  15. I'm with you on the Swordsman, USAgent, Yellowjacket, and provided they finally make him big enough, Falcon. I'm indifferent to Nefaria, and I'm happy with my current Wonder Man. Solid list though.
  16. Obsession with jokes even though they have no clue how to write humor or comedy, total lack of any understanding of the characters involved or even the concept of the show they're writing for, and a total disregard for the subject material and any fans of said material bordering on total contempt. Yup, so far this show is everything I've come to expect from Disney's perversion of the MCU. I guess I COULD give them half a point for that half-@$$ed attempt at a twist . . . NAH. I'd say at least they're consistent, but the first episode was actually okay, so they they can't even suck consistently.
  17. Honestly, I could belt out a wishlist, but it would be pointless. I don't care who's in the wave. A comic-based wave? Avengers centric? Sign me up! Classic character, legacy character, new character, I'll take whoever they make! I don't have any particular problem with the D+ and MCU waves and whatnot, but I AM over them at this point. A nice, plain comic wave is just what the doctor ordered.
  18. Same here. Sign me up for a Blue Marvel as well. A Ms. Marvel (Carol) in her classic colors would be cool to.
  19. THIS is the CB I've been waiting for. Sadly, looking more and more like we won't be getting that Excalibur Boxed set, but as long as Megan is there, I can live with a 2-pack (my wallet certainly can).
  20. A USAgent would be welcome, but I'll hold my excitement till we have something more concrete. I'd be all aboard for a Comic Avengers wave though.
  21. I'm betting we'll see him as a deluxe, maybe even as part of a Sinister Six boxed set. BAFs are great and all, but Hasbro DOES love their "special" figures.
