  1. Is it cheating to say I prefer classics for the classic teams and modern for the modern teams? back in the day we were lucky to get one version of say, Ant-Man or Hercules. Nowadays we have classic and modern versions of both. Granted the classic Hercules is from Hasbro's dark days but standing towards the back of the group he looks good. And modern Herc looks pretty good standing next to the other modern takes on Heroes. We are spoiled, we really don't have to choose, we just have to be patient.
  2. Also, enough already with the comic inspire looks. This company feels the need to put their twist on every look. That Thor is probably as close to a comic look we will get and wow... it's not good. for the most part i want comic or MCU looks, not versions that are kinda like those but not really. The worst part about Ultimate Alliance 2 was that companies take on classic uniforms. I'm fine with one or two "inspired" looks but give us comic and MCU looks without the alterations please. Man I want to LOVE this game but every bit of info they give out makes it seem less likely to happen. Sorry to come off so critical, I'm normally willing to give the benefit of the doubt but bits of info like this is making it hard to look forward to this
  3. Love it!! Pre- order now to get cos- play suits!! That Thor haha GD I saw the same thing at SDCC ... so is this game about Kamal Kahn and her interactions with the Avengers? I'm ok with her as a character but man does she feel force fed. Hate when Marvel tells me I'm supposed to love a character. As far as costumes go, these are an easy pass, no incentive to preorder at all. I've heard that each character will have a lot of skins to choose from. Hope that is true because the defaults and pre-order ones leave a lot to be desired
  4. The best thing I can submit to entice us to buy another thing is to include a Ben Grimm alternate head. There was a period where the Thing was having issues staying rocky and took to wearing a exo- suit that replicated his Thing appearance. Including a helmet that looked exactly like his normal Thing head. Could be cool to replicate that look, have he holding his Thing "helmet" head.
  5. J. Jonah Jamison as Spider-Slayer. GD I love comics and their "so off the wall it's awesome" ideas!! Can you imagine a middle aged man hating a celebrity so much he commissioned a crazy a$$ suit to kill him. Love it
  6. Th half masked head would be awesome!! Great way to celebrate that classic "Peter-tingle" moment from the classic comics that has never been done in Legends form. Such a cool yet simple effect to show his power in action
  7. The Rose!! So easy to do! The white suit is already out there and it's an easy mod to add the masked head and lapel rose. Great idea! Funny how that character became a back door classic.
  8. To quote Aaron Rogers: relax, R-E-L-A-X. No way Hasbro out prices their fan base. A $10 price increase out of the blue would cause such fan backlash as to have their sales drop to he point that any increase in price of new figures would be offset by the loss of collectors who drop the line. Hasbro is in a groove. They are producing the best line on the market right now in terms of sculpting, quality, and variety there is no way they show the arrogance to think we would accept that steep of a price increase to continue collecting. Image that Hasbro, who loves to repackage the same figures with a slight color change or in a multipack also decides that we are suckers enough to buy that same figure with a huge increase of cost!?! We all complain to some degree that repacks are out of hand, there is no way this line can sustain the same business model and practices of releasing essentially the same product at a higher price point. Hasbro would have to adopt a entirely new approach to how they release repaints. another point, the recent MCU/ 80th anniversary sets. Many retailers immediately dropped the price to sell out their stock. Are the big box stores really going to hope consumers will spend the higher price point when they panicked and dropped the cost of new sets days after release? new releases sell well due to the demand for new products but once the rush is over the those waves are stagnant. Would big box adopt the higher price point just for new releases? Doubt it. They still need to sell their stock, and consumers will balk at high prices. I have left entire waves from FYE and GameStop due to their rediculous prices. i guess it's wait and see. Personally I can take the price hit if I so choose, but i guarantee I'd be more selective on which figures I bought. With the amount of product Hasbro has been putting out it doesn't seem like Hasbro would force us to be so restrained
  9. What a random thought haha... that being said Hasbros face tech would knock the actors likeness out of the park.
  10. Depends on if they do the much requested Ditko Spidey, something visually distinct could make another Spider-Man stand out. as for the rest, I am all in on Peter Parker. Make him with two or three artist specific heads and Hasbro could print money. Daredevil depends on which version. We have all the main looks except armored but thus bring a retro line would they use this look? ToyBiz DID do an armored repaint back in the 5" days so it could be and I would buy two if so. Love armored DD Gwen, Goblin and Electo are wait and see. Would they do two civilians in a wave? Peter and Gwen?
  11. I'd go for that as that's how I have filled out my Avengers lineup through the years. Beast from Xmen, Nova, Agent Venom & Spider-Woman from Spider-Man, the FF from the FF etc.. we will prob get a few obscure Avengers from the upcoming Eternals line as Sergei & Gilgamesh will likely get MCU versions so Hasbro may throw us a bone and give us comic versions as well. That's my hope at least.
  12. Completely agree. Any of the above will be a random WTF release that will please collectors like me but make the majority shake their heads haha
  13. That is a valid point and kind of the mentality I had to adopt in regards to said Giant-Man. When I think of size changers though I want them at their tallest and at full power I guess. Again to your point, the 6" Goliath we got in the Ant-Man pack is ideal for his relative size when compared to Marvel Universes 3 3/4 scale. He was also great as a depowered Hank before he becomes Giant-Man. My want of the larger figure is just personal preferences but I can see your point
  14. Yeah the blow back of some new company getting the license will be felt the hardest by long time collectors. In many cases we are just a few figures away from defining lineups then to have to start over and have no other option but to buy Brand Xs new version of the same characters is deflating at best and a nightmare at worst. I was hopeful when I heard McFarlane was getting the DC license ( despite Mattel stepping up their game for the most part) but once the actual product came out it was a huge disappointment. Guess McFarlane would not conform to the 6" standard and so my DC collection ends with Mattels last offering. as others have mentioned, none of us are rich, and we collect what we can but the monetary investment ( I'm personally in well over thousands of dollars, between Legends and Universe) is to great to restart a Marvel collection again. They got me back once, as I had shifted to MU 3 3/4 figures when that was the only option. And I loved my Universe collection, but once they brought Legends back I had to decide if I was going to recommit to the six inch scale. I did and my old ToyBiz Legends are now " non-canon". I really don't think I can match my enthusiasm for my current collection to starting over again. It all seems too daunting so let's hope Hasbro hangs on to the Marvel license
  15. Not sure about an entire wave but what I'd like to see is a great buck with many alternate hands and artist specific unmasked Peter Parker heads. Ditko, Romita, McFarlane, Byrne, and many more have had their renditions of Peter and in most cases are reminders of an era of Spider-Man we loved. The suit doesn't have to be artist specific too much, the early version were basically the same. They could sell it as a deluxe figure and add as many iconic versions as possible. For arguments sake let's say they add three extra heads along with the masked head, fists, twipp hands, wall crawling hands.... DC Multiverse did something similar with their Alfred, two actor and one comic inspired head I believe. It was a great idea and I think it would be cool to see a Spider-Man figure get a similar treatment
  16. If they cold get Atlas the size of the Walmart Giant-Man or at least the Marvel Universe sized Goliath that would be ideal. The recent MCU Giant-Man, while well sculpted and articulated, lacked the necessary Giant. If they go this route then I'd rather they don't bother
  17. Yeah the lines have been blurred since Marvel instituted the Avengers Unity Squad. Havok, Rogue, Sunfire, Deadpool, Cable, Sabretooth are all card carrying Avengers. Add in X23, and a few others that have served as both. As far as an Avengers only list the best you can say is give it time. Won't be long before everyone is an Avenger 😄
  18. You have pretty much given those that are left, I forget that there are so many yet to be done. Who I'd want made first: Swordsman ( with classic and alt Gatherers head) Dr. Druid (w/ classic and alt reborn head) Tigra Jim Hammond Human Torch Classic Moon Knight ( with Marc Spectre unmasked head) Quasar ( Galactic Storm era) Hercules ( in either classic uniform) Sersi Crystal Stingray classic Moondragon Wonder Man (safari jacket uniform) all of these goes a long way to completing the classic roster
  19. Yeah that would be a great alternative. Make her a classic body with instant recognition for those that know the character with an unmasked head so it has value, then those that found Mystique get a little extra. Brilliant
  20. Be awesome if only Lilandras body was included.. Hasbro pinching pennies since they already gave us her head 😂
  21. I am cautiously optimistic. He definitely has a style. I’d be surprised if a director of his renown would bow to the wishes of the MCU juggernaut and do as they say. Kinda thought I read he learned his lesson with studio control after Spider-Man 3. However if there is one MCU franchise that would embrace Sams wackiness it would be Dr. Strange
  22. Love the bike. But those hips.... my lord how long has Cosmic Ghost Rider been on that thing?!? I am shocked that with the level of crafting going into Legends these days that Hasbro would release something so aesthetically unappealing. Im reluctantly passing, love the bike but GR himself looks very poor. Tell me they haven’t made this guy an Avenger otherwise the completist in me flips and will reluctantly buy this guy
