  1. I will preface this by stating I just watched Morbius last night and while it is a flawed film, it was not the train wreck most say it is. Though I do agree neither end credit scene makes any sense. But..... I’ve said before and will say again: Sony needs to incorporate Spidey in some way into these bizarre choices for film projects. I mean, what do Venom, Morbius, Madame Web, Kraven etc all have in common? Spidey. Without him, these films will be pet projects at best, or comic films with almost no connection to the source material at worst.
  2. If this were a Fox or Sony film I’d say this was absolutely true
  3. Fun topic. Maybe follow this one up with our choices for best costumes. also, I notice the topic just says worst costumes in superhero movies. Are we sticking with just Marvel or can I lambast that horrible Justice League Flash costume as well? Before I give my choices I want to say I agree with what people are saying about the stupid decision Fox went with for Deadpool. No mouth, no elements of what makes Deadpool recognizable. I mean, if you were not going to give fans Deadpool, then just use an original creation in that spot. for my first choice i present Sony’s Venom. Another baffling studio choice to remove any semblance of who the character is. The lightning pattern , I guess is what that is on his upper torso is just a poor substitute for the iconic spider. They could have made that spider-like without too much effort. Next is the Rhino from Amazing Spider-Man 2. You know what, just throw Electro & The Green Goblin from this film in there too. Sony just doesn’t get it. Marvel used the same actor as the same character ( Electro) and made him 1000% cooler. Just little things like his classic mask forming when he uses his powers. can I list Galactus from FF2? Ok this is cheating as I actually like Nic Cage’s Ghost Rider but how GR looked in Spirit of Vengeance was soooo much better than the first film. Something about the clean white skull always bugged me. In the 2nd film its grey and charred.... dirty. More like what I imagined Ghost Rider would look. Terrible film though...
  4. I too have the original and frankly it was the weakest of the initial role play items. Now with the price increase it becomes even more underwhelming
  5. Has Scarlet Spidey ever worn the hood up? Or was the Spider Logo off center like this? Admittedly not a huge fan of this look but both these issues are hitting my eyes wrong
  6. I’ll give MAFEX credit, they make aesthetically pleasing figures. I really liked the blue on the bottoms of the Symbiote Spideys feet and wished Hasbro took that extra step. This too is a nice figure but the cost is just too high.
  7. I’m torn on this set. I’m an MCU completist but, like the upcoming Black Panther re-release wave, there are only slight paint app differences and nothing new added. Plus, no set is worth having to visit Epcot. edit: what’s this set retail for at Epcot? I fear the answer as a lunch for 4 at Disney or Universal runs close to $70 ...
  8. Maybe so but not without precedent. If you recall, just before volume 2 was released Hasbro re-released the figures from the first movie. It was actually how I managed to get the wave as I skipped it when the first movie came out because at the time I had no idea who the characters were. Plus I was able to snag Space Armor Iron Man and Nova that I couldn’t find the first time around. In hindsight, Hasbro releasing the first movies figures again was no doubt because they knew they had a hit franchise at that point and a surplus of previously unknown characters.
  9. Agree, this new strategy feels rushed and half-@$$ed. Like they were given a hard deadline for when the new packaging was to be started without putting any thought into how it wold be implemented. If I had to guess, by this time next year, the whole presentation of the plastic free packaging will be very different than what we see here. Probably still plastic free but better box art, better figure security.. i mean, my experience with the latest Thor wave I saw bad paint apps and stolen accessories. All this with see through packaging. I shudder to think how we will all get burned if Hasbro just phones it in like they have here
  10. The figure is ok but wasn’t thrilled with the look when the MU 3 3/4 line released him. It’s not the best design in either white or black but this does beg the question if they release a white version will they eventually release a future foundation FF as well ? I mean, obviously they will but not to excited to buy the FF again at today’s prices
  11. Agree. At the end of the day who is this plastic less packaging really for? Don’t think for a second that Hasbro’s decision was for the World.. more likely to appease the vocal minority that anyone who uses plastic is utterly evil. The whole new packaging rollout seems ill thought out and rushed. I mean, pics of the figure instead of dynamic art? No way to guarantee what they say is in the box is actually there? This screams of reactionary steps that will surely be re-thought or revamped before long. It looks bush league and hardly like a major company’s product. everyone has hit the major concerns that at this point are not addressed. What’s in the box? Are the eyes painted correctly or cross-eyed? Does my figure have two left feet? Online purchases really don’t guarantee anything. Not like Hasbro is immune to mistakes when we can see what’s in the package now. i don’t know, this feels like a blind bag product. I’m not thrilled about the future of the line. really feel Hasbro will have to rethink this strategy when they see customers aren’t buying multiples for MOC or impulse purchases. Can’t imagine the environment will be such a huge issue to them when they can’t sell the same amount of product. Do you really think any company will place conscious over making $$$? I don’t know the solution. They can’t zip tie the figures to the cardboard but they can’t rely on the general public’s honesty either
  12. Can you imagine they did essentially army building style packaging? We are already concerned about thieves and what may actually be in the box.. if they put boxes that small on pegs thieves could steal an entire wave haha
  13. I picked this guy up but I doubt I’ll ever display him as Ragnarok. Most likely I’ll add lightning accessories and have him crushing Ultron or some other fool that tries to take on Thor. Ive always loved this suit for “Thor”. I’ve actually still got a 80th Anniversary figure still in box it’s such a beautiful overall package.
  14. Targets recent Legends treatment gets a bit odder. For months no Target within 90 miles had any new product. There was no sticker placement, no spot on shelves. The Thor wave started hitting but weeks after the street date still no new product. Then today, 1 Target has 6 Groots, another had 6 Ragnarok deluxe sets and half the BoneBreaker wave. I grabbed Wolverine as a placeholder for the Astonishing suit which HAS to be one of the next Obligatory Wolverine spots right? I mean surely Hasbro wouldn’t throw the only suit left I really need into something stupid like a Pulse exclusive 3 pack with a repainted Boom Boom & another legless Cannonball would they?!? WOULD THEY?!? I was surprised that Vulcan had two figures on pegs. I must have confused the fact that he is the first figure on the new standard body with him having rarity. Also saw Siryn and Sabretooth. Passed on them since I still can’t justify the price hike. oh also of note, I saw the Thor wave at FYE... FOR $39.99 EACH!!!! Unreal, if Hasbro thinks I’d continue frivolous spending after their $3-$4 price hike FYE is INSANE to think they will get anyone to bite on a $19.00 hike..
  15. Today I completed the Thor L&T wave by finding Jane Thor. Seems like a pretty good likeness also, Ragnarok arrived from Target yesterday. I thought the red eyes would be a deal breaker for having this guy sub into my collection as another classic Thor but the red isn’t overly bright and unle ss you place your face against the glass you might not even notice.
