    When the 1st attempt at Herc comes out looking like BK on roids, then yeah, you re-do the fig, especially when Hasbro has proven that they can outdo everything TB did.  And again, if it's a C-list character as you say, & you might just do him/her once, then common sense dictates you do that character in their most iconic/recognizable costume, not the flavor of the month  look.

    Whose "common sense"? That is subjective (as this discussion proves).

    What's so hard bout knocking out the more classic version 1st of a character & then if they wanna release alternate versions based on MCU/video games, then have at it. It's like that Man bun Herc, they do a version that's been out what, a couple of yrs over the 2 more classic iconic versions he's known for. Same for that living Laser, looks more like a vide game character & doesn't go with other villains that he's teamed up with that have been  done in their  classic versions.

    One thing we, as collectors CANNOT do...is complain about which version of a character we get. Whether or not it's a classic or modern. Why? For the same reasons we get the likes of Kamala Khan after only being in the Marvel U for little over a year! Because there are fans that want modern versions of characters (or new) every bit as much as there are fans who want classic. Amazing how the go to word (not from you) always seems to be "no one asked for that figure" just because it isn't what THAT person wanted. Like what THEY want is universally agreed upon. We still have Hasbro beat 2 to 1: They keep pumpin' em out, while we keep complaining... and collecting.

    I share your opinion. The current price point limits the options for vehicles to motorcycles or motorcycle sized product, but there is a demand for larger vehicles like the Battle Van or the Hell Charger or even Devil Dino. I'm assuming the price point for those options would be over $60 and I think the success or failure of the Riders products in its current format will ultimately determine whether we get these larger vehicles or not. Let's support these Riders products guys. It's the best way to assure we get future product of any type.

    I will say the possibility of having F4 in their upcoming "return" costumes or Future Foundation costumes each coming with their own portion of the Fantasticar, essentially creating a vehicular version of the BAF, is very intriguing.

    Does this mean we have to collectively "bite the bullet" and purchase the (ulp) ...Vespa? Lol

    Let me take a shot at this. Could it be that this BAF is not a movie based figure?

    Lol, easy points for me as i'm grateful in the exact same way. For the record, the only Nimrod this mold would be good for is a version least wanted by anyone. Buuuut, at the end of the day, at least we get one. Ultimately, I think if and when we do finally get a Nimrod, it will most definitely be worthy of an original buck, and if Hasbro history shows us anything, those long waited for figures, especially BAF's  usually get knocked outta the park. No sir, Nimrod will not receive the reuse treatment.


    Shoulda known if ANYBODY was gonna know what I was thinking, it would be my brotha from anotha! Believe me, I know how fortunate Marvel based fans/collectors are with this one. I believe it was a simple matter of "bad timing" that spared us an MCU BAF  for an MCU based wave. Can't have a Ronan BAF. Not after generally releasing a $25 figure mere months before. There's no doubt in my mind we would've gotten Ronan as the Build-A-Figure if not for that (We may STILL get another Ronan. I'm sure he'll be in a different uniform  this go round). If that happens, I'm going to look at Sentry 459 as Hasbro's way of giving us a Fantastic Four BAF on the sly.

  5. Here's the rundown: 


    During Comic-Con I received the Thor/Groot,Rocket 3 pack as well as the 10th Anniversary Thor/Sif 2 pack from EE. I purchased the Red Skull/Tesseract & Defenders Railcar sets as well as the 10th Anniversary Ronan & Iron Man MKVII figures.

    The following week, I received my X-Men Apocalypse  & Venom Monster Venom waves.

    This week started off with me stumbling across a Black haired Psylocke (I got the Purple haired version in my X-Men cases), then the Winter Soldier/Falcon, Everett Ross/Killmonger & Hulk/Hulkbuster  10th Anniversary  2 packs.

    Today, I got charged for the Deadpool Sauron & Spider-Man SP//DR waves. Should be here Saturday. 

    35 figs in hand since July 21. 51 come Saturday. I will always lean to the side of "there can never be too much Marvel Legends but Sweet Googly Moogly!!!

    Thanks for asking. It was something I started when my kids were really little, and I didn't want to explain to them about why I had figures of bad guys. My oldest especially is really, really sensitive. Now that they're older, it's more just a way to not have to buy everything. 

    I can't think of any better reasons than the 2 you provided! Lol. Thanks!!!

    My only issue with it is the scale. Too big. Ben is 6ft 500lbs, not 7ft 1000lbs, that's classic Hulk stats. Once I get it, I'm gonna see if I can perform some sorta customizing surgery on it to knock off an inch to get him in proper scale. Todays artists take way too much artistic license with certain characters & draw them monster sized. The Thing is thick & wide, not tall.


    We need to bottle what you said and pass it around! I've riffed about scale for forever. The problem is we have people (whom I've dubbed the "Bigger is Better" posse or BiB) always default to the same excuse/rationale: "that's the way he's being drawn". This was a big issue with the Thanos BAF a few years ago. "He isn't big enough". Thanos is 6'7, not Hulk sized. On the flip, if a character is made too large (Juggernaut for example. In the costume used for the BAF, he was 6'10. If Hasbro used one of his two modern costumes, he'd be right in scale). The funny thing about the artist excuse is Thanos was seen recently in the Guardians of the Galaxy comic, and was drawn his normal size. How much you wanna bet the BiB will dismiss that as a "one off"?
