  1. I didn't see those pix yet!! omg, thank you....I think when I last saw that page the pic load was up to maybe 195 images........wow, those last ones are truly incredible. From a beat-up Juggernaut.......which, granted, never happens. I love Colossus but normally Juggy smacks him around....and that Iron Man, to have a Tony Stark head as he holds his helmet?! so so classic... I love it, ditto for ultimate classic Cap; I swear that might be the best paint job / representation of color I've ever seen on an action figure......still not feeling the Thor..something about him is too passive for me...but with that Iron Man and Cap, and the Hulk vs. Wolverine set is a dream come true, ....this has been the best Toy Fair in awhile.
  2. is that true? Id idn't see listings for the Thor / Cap / Iron Man figure to show extras and attachments...is it somewhere and I missed it?
  3. This set was perfect for inclusion with a copy of the book.... I'm all for sets just being sets, but in this case? it's such a specific name based on a classic, intense limited series...(c'mon Hasbro! Barnes and Noble sells it for $8 lol)....the context would have helped sell this more in a mass market retail chain like Target, I think anyway...but that siad, this set is fantastic...I really like Kraven's rifle being included and Peter's bruised face to reflect how physically, as much as psychologically, damaging this story is...this set is as well crafted and well thought as any Hasbro has produced. 'very good set to buy.

    Most wanted characters in classic suits

    echoing a few people here, Dr. Doom in a pristine classic costume, I'm thinking this, is a mandatory. Hopefully around the same time Marvel unrolls a summer or Fall event series with him as the lead bad AND Kevin Feige makes him the successor to Thanos as the central unstoppable villain of the MCU (he's a king like Black Panther but a magic wielder like Dr. Strange AND hates the FF; nothing but connections to the new heroes of the new MCU... He need to be universally loved! or feared. or both.) Other than that, I'd love to see Quasar. Yep, Quasar. and Stingray. Two characters that have mayyyyybe a 2% chance....I doubt it, but I always really liked their costume designs and thought they'd make interesting, cool figures. Oh and I still want an original New Warriors SDCC box set.... c'mon, it's only 6 figures Hasbro, and you already have Night Thrasher!!

    #NYTF2019 MARVEL LEGENDS

    never in a mililno years did i think I'd see a Hydroman figure and compliment hwo amazing his hair looks lol... I swear this batch of Hasbro figures jsut feels like a leap forward...in personality-infusion, in styling, coloring......variety..everything. I'm very very impressed and so pleased, ...and I never knew how much I wanted an Ant Man hat I could wear till i saw it!...so far the WW2 Ultimate Cap / motorcycle is a lock for buying, as is Citizen V, that Julie Carpenter Spider-woman is terrific, and the updates to the ToyBiz X-men are an unfair push on my nostalgia buttons.......ok, i really do want them all.. food, who needs food!?
  7. ok so for fun, I checked out the X-men Legends: Magento figure....see if this was very similar... and it's not even close! this one radiates so much more aggression, rage and power...outstanding face work here....... Quicksilver and Scarlet seem fine...solid costumes but sorta dull / lifeless expressions.. 'not sure I'd call this a mus have overall, but boy does that Magneto make it close..
  8. Yes! i love that particulate Thor figure and display him next to the Hawkeye of the same line...those were two of the very best Disney Store figures in my book....I agree onthem being out of a scale being a reason not to use them further, but boy they turned out nice.

    #NYTF19 - Mezco Marvel New Products

    Whoa. ok I've seen good Mezco figures before, but especially the Netflix Punisher and movie Captain Marvel.... they're really giving Hot Toys a run for their money with quality body & especially, face sculpts. Those look fantastic and others that I have seen before still are impressive..e.g. the old school Logan in his civilian clothes or that Ghost Rider bike set......but all that said, seeing the 3 Ragnarok figures together is amazing, just the scale and costume detailing....these will be hard to pass up...
  10. Ok those PEZ dispensers are adorable and delightfully detailed too..that Wolverine in particular is really catching my eye for a classic Logan look....the Phoenix figures are just a depressing reminder of Fox not embracing comic accurate costumes in their films. ....but as always, she lends herself to well detailed and imaginative designs at any scale & detail level....'very good desktop items for work here.
  11. yes! i thought the same....I love the other 4 figures shown here...but if Cap / Thor / Iron Man are supposed to be based on Alex Ross's art, a simple Google search proves that to be all wrong. He looks more like a perfectly serviceable Thor figure, but nothing we haven't see before, and certainly not nearly as accurate to Ross' interpretation as Iron Man and Cap are (both look fantastic, high marks there)....there's been so many Thor figures, that it's hard to make a new one really stand out unless it's based on a costume.....hmm, but are they any left that haven't been made?? or an art style......ah well, bring on WW2 Cap & Peggy!
  12. Ok that was cool! I wish they had a bit more detail on the timing though.....how long before figures are in stores do they receive imagery from Marvel, or updates if there are changes during production? I can't imagine it's always smooth and not a time-crunched schedule...plus if they go through revisions? Ha, I'm just a sucker for documentaries about the industry, ......'loved The Toys that Made Us , so more of this? the better!
  13. You know, I like to think that merchandising decisions are based on other plans.........which, logically I know isn't always true...but when I see a fantasic figure based on a criminally under-used character, I hope it means Marvel has larger plans for him in live action. The sculpt looks well detailed with even better color application....variations of blue without conflicting with each other look really sharp.........hm, the green smoke-swirl base looks a bit "Mysterio" but I'll absolutely check this out in stores, DST's scale series is overall a great value for the price point.
  14. here ya go sir, from "New Avengers" back in 2007... "Unknown to the New Avengers, Hawkeye is resurrected once reality was restored. He seeks out Doctor Strange, who offers Hawkeye shelter while he comes to terms with his new life. Against the advice of Dr. Strange, Hawkeye eventually travels to Wundagore Mountain and finds the Scarlet Witch living a normal life with no memory of her past and apparently without mutant abilities. The two become intimate and Hawkeye then leaves Wanda to her normal life.[70] Returning to the United States, Hawkeye learns about the assassination of Captain America. He confronts Tony Stark, who then offers Hawkeye the Captain America shield and costume to continue the legacy. Hawkeye is later inspired by the words of Kate Bishop, whom he met while hiding his identity, and rejects Stark's offer.[71] Hawkeye returns to see Dr. Strange and meets the New Avengers. The team invites Hawkeye to join the team. Hawkeye accepts, and accompanies the team on a mission to Japan to rescue Echo. However, leaving behind his Hawkeye identity, Clint Barton takes on the disguise of Ronin.
  15. Sweet lord......ok to put that Cyclops with the Wolverine and the Gambit...who btw, is posed insanely well and makes me not want to see a live action Gambit unless shots like that are in it......but yeah, the pose-ability of those are ridiculous, and the fact that they're detailed & well colored too makes them hard to pass up...I read a great book about the X-men Animated cartoon last year and it's made me want to add some collectibles of the show to my collection....these absolutely might be the ticket!
