  1. I'm also a "twofer". I love making dioramas and I also love looking at them in their packaging (especially when they were on bubble cards). I guess I could put them back in their original boxes, but the missing BAF piece is too noticeable in it's absence. With the exception of B&M exclusives, I always get cases anyway. As far as purchasing more than 2, with some exceptions (one being stumbling upon a Juggernaut wave Deadpool many months after it was released. I saw it, eyes blew up, grabbed and bought. I simply couldn't bear the thought of a scalper possibly getting his/her grimey azz hands on it.), I only get more than 2 when I army build (ie; Hydra Soldiers, both single carded & 2 pack), A.I.M. (same) and most recently, I bought a case of Multiple Men. I'm guessing Hasbro is gonna give us the Hand next (if they stay with the "bad guy" motif). If not, maybe S.H.E.I.L.D. agents (though somehow I doubt it because we'd need female agents as well. Female 2 pack? Probably a hard sell).
  2. My Archangels should arrive tomorrow.
  3. Even if the artists use "artistic license" to draw monster sized versions of characters, the true fault lies with the BiB posse for automatically dubbing the larger size as "canon" even when the character is next drawn back to their original (and actual) sizes. One of the reasons for this I suspect is "cheapness". These guys simply want more "buck" for their buck. This is possibly the main reason the Thing is so beloved. Not his sculpt, but his size plus those accessories. All for $20. We don't even think in terms of the figs that come with no accessories makes the ones that do "even out". We just complain...then buy anyway.
  4. You updated my brotha so I'll do the same; Once upon a time the Lizard was only 5'11. He's mutated to around 6'8 so in actuality, he's not "oversized". Granted, at that size his appearance is different, but he IS 6'8 (I noticed you didn't mention that Juggernaut was oversized. And he was. No rationalization, excuse or fallback can alter the fact that in that costume, Cain is too large). Don't get me wrong. I'm not attacking your choices or preferences. Not everyone is a neurotic completionist like myself.
  5. I agree 100%. Besides the sorry storyline, this is a reason Ang Lee's "Hulk" film failed. He felt the only way to demonstrate the Hulk getting stronger was to increase his size throughout the movie. Then in typical fashion, Marvel followed suit and started drawing him 20 feet tall. What makes it so bad is that collectors zero in on the largest versions of said character, and want their figure to be that size and fall back on the lame excuse of "that's how he's been drawn. His bio stats mean nothing". The truth is an artist has an interpretation just like all of us do, and engages in a thing called "artistic license", but the problem is there is a faction of ML collectors whom I've dubbed "The Bigger is Better" posse who couldn't care less if a figure is out of scale (funny thing is these same foo...er individuals will riff if a female character is "too big"). The Thing's sculpt is top notch and (in my opinion) the best action figure of 2018, but that's not what's going to put him over the top. No, it'll be his size that assists with this honor. Listen to the reviews. Almost all of them mention his size as part of their praise. When Hasbro came out with Thanos, Hasbro got lambasted for it being "too small". He's 6'7. Hasbro actually got it right and was negatively criticized for it. Contrarily, Juggernaut (whom in THAT costume was WAAY out of scale) was worshipped because of his size. Accuracy people! For one, it's a strong asset for getting the character right. 2nd- just because YOU want the character to be bigger doesn't make Hasbro (who got it right) wrong and complaining because you didn't get your way (no matter how wrong it is) sounds like what? You can say it. Most of you have one or the other (or both).
  6. I honestly believe one of the Marvel based figs is going to be Kl'rt. We all figured he'd be another FF based Walgreens exclusive, but then word got out that the switch to X-Men based characters would begin after the release of the Thing. Well the reason I say the Super Skrull will make this wave is because if we have Talos the Skrull in the movie (as well as in ML form), then apparently, this means Skrulls and related characters aren't Fantastic Four properties and thus, not owned by Fox (I know alll about the merger, but the Captain Marvel film was already in early development stages when that all came down). Also, based on the "Who Do You Trust" storyline (which was a marvel wide event), the Skrulls belong to Marvel "Prime". Skrulls are a big part of the Captain Marvel movie and would make sense to include a Marvel based Skrull (like Kl'rt) into the wave. Of course I could be totally wrong! LOL. I also hope we can get an original Ms Marvel figure.
  7. Magic is now in the southern Cali area. Saw the truck come yesterday (Leave one store, then went to another). Both had Magik. Yup. Got mine. Oh, and I'll be receiving my Multiple Man case tomorrow. Instant army.
  8. Soooooo...Caliban. Hm. Caliban. Not Guido. Caliban. Forge. Kool. Night Thrasher....with nary another New Warrior in sight. Beta. Ray. Bill. Along with Hercules (is there going to be a Thor wave no one told me about?). Black Suit Spider-Man/Kraven 2 pack. Looks like they changed up Kraven's appearance. Supreme Leader/Arnim Zola 2 pack is the business! Lovin Zola. Ebony Maw & Corvus Glaive (my all time favorite comic character name). Heh heh heh. I don't think any team has been completed so quickly!
  9. Go to an arts & crafts store (like Michael's) and get tacky stick. My Spider-Woman and Tigra figs are still hanging months later.
  10. Got my Thing(s) today. This is one hefty fig! Time for an Immortal Hulk Hasbro!!!
  11. I feel you on the paint apps issue. I'm the same way HOWEVER COMMA when it comes to the B & M exclusives, since more times than not, they appear on their respective websites before they touch down in the physical stores here in my part of Cali, what I do is purchase online and continue to hunt in the stores (just in case the apps or even the packaging itself is not up to par) and if this turns out to be the case, I return the online purchased item to the B&M. Some may say "it's too much trouble" to which I say I'm out there hunting anyway, so how is a few keystrokes "too much trouble" if it ensures I get what I'm looking for? I've got 2 Things on the way as of this posting, and I'm still out there looking for him (and Magik) just in case (plus I admit, I get a thrill seeing new Legends on the pegs).
  12. I ordered two. One box was good. The other was squeezed and warped. I guess since I always keep one of what I buy MOC, I got lucky. The Trevor 3 pack arrived today. They were packed ok (some bubble wrapping was used) and both boxes were good.
  13. Changing up for a minute; I got the Captain Marvel wave on preorder and my DOFP Logan & Sentinel came today, and my Trevor 3 pack arrives tomorrow.
