  1. my Tigras from GameStop should arrive by Sunday. Anyone else jump at her and buy from them? Quite surprised there wasn’t the standard GameStop mark up.
  2. Quake.. another boring Bendis creation cause he loved him some girls with boy hair cuts haha. i guess as an army builder and to check off another barely an Avenger she would be ok.. weird she just wore her standard shield units during her forgettable stint as a New Avenger.. guess she never got one of those weekly Avengers check to buy herself something less “army builder-ery “
  3. Boom.. this exactly..only way we’ll get a Masque ( as the clone was known then ) figure
  4. I’d also love this version as he was technically on the Avengers roster (before anyone knew he replaced Thor). He’d fit in well with the upcoming Hercules love it. It still screams ‘Thor” but is different enough to warrant a new figure.. maybe they could sneak in an unmasked ‘true’ Thor bearded head that fits the 80th body. Still can’t believe we didn’t get that alt head originally
  5. Retcons be damned.. Magneto is the father of Wanda and Pietro. .....unless of course you also discount the retcon that the Whizzer (heehee) was their father.
  6. As was I. I've said above that I’m 100% certain if we get Pietro it will be his classic green with the correct hair, but.. he should have an alt head with a different expression, also with correct hair, so it can replace the blue versions incorrect ‘do..
  7. Until the 80th Iron Man, ToyBiz had the definitive IM for years. The two pack with Shield Agent was way to skinny and limited by the sculpt. Tho the original did suffer from “gorilla” arms.. Hasbros 80th, despite the mishap on the backwards joints), is an engineering marvel.. they’ve captured the classic look withOUT hindering from the sculpt. And it’s big enough to look like an adult male is inside. The Toybiz Hulk to me was always a bit wonky for sculpt. But Cap was also a long time best version. even Hasbro’s first attempts at a classic didn’t hold up due to its large head. Of course the 80th Cap is now the best ever, at least until this figure gets a light blue repaint! BTW, the ToyBiz versions of BAF Giant Man, Thor, 1st app Iron Man, and mini Ant Man & Wasp are still displayed today
  8. Super Adaptoid for me all the way. Griffin in 2nd classic Avengers villain, nuff said
  9. Just by chance Hasbro always seems to get one detail wrong for my personal tastes. With Black Knight, the calm head was under the winged helmet. I’d had preferred the calm be under the wing LESS one. for this Tigra, I’d prefer the wild hair to be in the face with no stripes. Small complaint for sure, just a nit pick
  10. Agreed, when it’s essential to the character it’s “robbery” to exclude an important accessory. It could be that Hasbro hasn’t had the time to sculpt a Red Wing up to the standards they are at now. I’ve got the old ToyBiz one still and it works but for Falcon, we’re talking about the equivalent of them giving us a Cap or Thor w/o a shield of hammer. No Red Wing is a crime haha
  11. Tigra is in stock, got a couple from GameStop online with only a 2-4 day shipping window. She is synonymous with the West Coast Avengers to me and if the rumors are true and a US Agent, white Vision and a new Scarlet Witch are on the way my WCA display is about to blow up!
  12. Very cool. Love the Beast. Isn’t he in an upcoming Retro wave? Hopefully with a Perez era head ( in blue, Hasbro C’MON MAN!!😀) nice use of that Tamashii effect btw
  13. Armored Thor from that Decades cover would be sweet. I mean, probably wouldn’t be much more than what went into the Silver Samurai. Just a few figures removed from completing that awesome cover. AT THE TIME, I wasn’t thrilled with nearly all the big names getting new looks but in hindsight it has become one of my favorite eras. but..to get this Thor, it probably means most are easy repaints. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing though.. maybe we get IM with horns and an alt ‘nose’ faceplate. Quicksilver in green ( this one I’m 100% confident gets done) Scarlet Witch in classic colors, Agent in 80th buck ( I’d take it!) and white Vision. Mostly easy repaints but a wildly different look from past releases.
  14. Hasbro has shown they can do big BAFs very well. The recent Armadillo is just the latest in a string of greatly engineered figures that nobody thought we’d ever get. maybe Hasbro will be able to get in a few larger Avengers villains like Orka, Kang’s Growing Man, or the Griffin in one of these upcoming waves. Im sure there’s many more super sized villains I’m forgetting at this moment
  15. Yes to all these. I stand by these classic characters need Legends love before flash in the pan characters like Blue Marvel or any of Hickman’s additions.
  16. GameStop has Tigra in stock on their website with a 2-4 day delivery window. I grabbed 2, here’s hoping they arrive in a few days!
  17. That unmasked head with the symbiote creeping up is a nice effect. Be nice if Hasbro steals that frankly, I love the blue soles as well. Really hits m3 in the nostalgia feels seeing that nice little touch. Steal that too Hasbro.
  18. Good news indeed. Wonder if Amazon didn’t inadvertently spoil a future release for Hasbro? Whoops im thinking if Scarlet Witch is on a retro card, it’s got to be the 3 pack version in classic colors. That one would have been perfect if the colors they chose where accurate in that box set For the Vision, I’d love a white redo. But which body would they use? The previous retro classic Vision was on the smaller size but since it IS the Vision, would they use the same body? Be nice to get Jim Hammond Human Torch in a Avengers retro figure too
  19. He was very brittle! Someone remarked that the translucent figures typically were. I bought the white Vision three times because the hip joint cracked off twice before. The last time I just superglued him back together, figuring the hazy ness of the glue wouldn’t be very noticeable on the visions paint scheme. Never liked that particular attempt anyway. I’d rather he had been a flat white. Be cool if he does get updated Wanda as well. That 3 pack figure with classic colors? Hell yes
  20. The white vision was shocking at first I agree. I did come to really like that version during his WCA run. To me the real thing Byrne ruined was Scarlet a Witch. Well, to be fair his having her turn bad only lasted a few issues but it did plant the seeds for Bendis to finish the job.
  21. Hasbro had a year to plan that movie Venom and that’s what they came up with? Poorly drawn “lightning” on his shoulders?? Blah..
  22. Maestro showed up from Amazon today. Ordered him so long ago I completely forgot about him, had no idea what was in the box fun surprise. His head sculpt is amazing. Looks like it’s right off the page. The rest is nice but isn’t the outfit I think of when I think of the Maestro. Overall pretty cool figure. Goes to show we are getting so much product and so many reveals that more and more are sliding under the radar
  23. Blue Marvel is meh.. no connection to his character. Wasn’t he another one that Marvel retconned into the 60s or 70s? Or said he has been around longer than than last decade? Speedball would be ok if he were in his original suit. His Avengers ties are flimsy.. a run as an outlaw group during the Dark Reign era and a teacher at Avengers Academy.. Agent so far of the rumors is the only Avenger in an Avengers wave.. try harder Hasbro.. so many better choices to drop in there
