    Top 10 Most Wanted X-Men

    Just an observation about a certain blue furry mutant we will be getting soon...is Beast the first ever Marvel Legend we are getting that has both an ab crunch and a diaphragm joint? The last time I saw those 2 joints on a single figure, was some of the DC Collectibles Arkham Knight figures, like Red Hood for example. Before that, I can’t recall any figure from any line having those 2 combined torso joints. Something tells me ToyBiz probably did it but nothing is coming to mind.

    Is a new Jigsaw figure on the way?

    I totally forgot to mention a 2099 Pun! Any 2099 version, I’m game for it! Also, I have no idea why you dislike Thomas Jane so much but that was a funny read lol. He was great in The Mist so take that!
  3. Agreed. It may not be the weakest Spidey Wave to date but for me, it’s definitely up there. Night Thrasher, Puma and Six-Armed Spidey is what pulled the wave out of the gutter for me. I have no attachment to Red Goblin at all as I had no idea who/what he was (i stopped reading Modern Marvel comics sans a very select few titles) prior to seeing the figure debut but I don’t need to know who he is either because I’m an action figure collector first and foremost and the figure looks cool enough/fine enough on its own merits for me to like it. Everyone is so sour over the 6-Armed Spidey (I wholeheartedly understand it could have been better) but the figure that sours my apples the most is Sable, simply because she is not in her classic attire. How many YEARS have we waited to get a Sable and they don’t release her in classic form? It maddens me to no end. As far as the 6-Armed Spidey goes, I’m just happy to have him and getting an update to a 90s ToyBiz Figure that I played with to oblivion and back as a child, really tickles my fancy. For me, I’d simply rather have the 6-Armed Spidey we got, then not have one at all. I am certainly no hasbro aplogist but this Spidey gets an easy pass from me, strictly due to nostalgia and sentimentalism. Beyond that, I am capable of looking at the picture as a whole and to that end, we received over 130 individual Legends figures last year alone. I would have to double check my inventory but I think the final number for 2018 was 137, figures including BAFs and repaints. Point being, out of THAT many figures, how many were truly terrible action figures and/or had awful articulation schemes? 6-Armed Spidey will no doubt be a part of another year (2019) with a 100 or more Legends releases in it so, speaking for myself only of course, a couple subpar figures out of that many releases surely isn’t going to ruin my day lol. Sorry, no matter how hard I sometimes try, I often wind up ranting on like a lunatic anyways.
  4. Agreed. Additionally, if the rumored X-Force Wave actually comes out this year AND if it’s a full 90s roster (as it should be), then I legitimately think Strong Guy might make his debut.
  5. Ha! It ain’t being lazy my good man, it’s shopping smart lol! Yeah it can be a pain being a MIMB/MOMC collector when there are extra figures you have to buy because you want to open them but luckily, that’s not that big of a problem for me with Legends. The only real Legends I buy extras to open are Spidey rogues/villains and the occasional X-Men themed character. I had to buy an extra wave to build that big and beautiful Kingpin and I will be building Monster Venom soon (those two BAFs will be the first BAFs I’ve built since ToyBiz). I would’ve built a Rhino and Juggernaut but I much more prefer the size, weight, paint and sculpt of my Marvel Select versions. I may or may not decide to build Lizard. Don’t get me wrong, I think the BAF is great but for some reason, I still really like my Marvel Select Lizard. I know I’m probably like one of 9 people that love the Select Lizard but idk, there’s just something simplistic yet engaging about it for me. I do get extra Deadpool’s to open as well cause I’m stupid like that lol. Beyond themed figures, I will buy extra of a fig if I have an attachment to the character, like Punisher, Angela, Crossbones, all F4 characters, Majik and the upcoming Blink, etc to name a few. Luckily, I won’t run into a problem with the Caliban wave as I definitely don’t need that as a BAF. BAF choice aside, I fully expect that wave to be the downright best wave of the year as the character selection is nothing short of rock-solid imo. However, what I don’t buy in the form of extra Legends to open, I more than make up for with the extra Neca and McFarlane figures (to name a couple) that I buy duplicates of to open lol. P.S. Circling back to Punisher for a second, great job on that Jigsaw post you made as the topic turned me into raving 8 year old when I wrote my response. Thanks a lot...lol

    Is a new Jigsaw figure on the way?

    @monron999 I am right there with you and I think a first appearance Jiggy would be awesome. Having said that, since Punisher is my favorite Marvel character and we barely ever get Punisher Legends, I will happily take whatever version of Jiggy Hasbro can throw at me. I want any and all Jigsaw’s I can get. Furthermore, to take it as left field as I can, I would want a Gamerverse Jigsaw with deco modeled after the original NES lightgun game (kind of like how Neca does their video game appearance figures) Having said that, wasn’t the final boss of that game Jiggs in a giant mech suit lol? That would be awesome! Maybe a Gamerverse 2-pack with Castle & Jiggs. Realistic deco or retro game deco, I don’t care, just give it to me lol. For Punisher, I want a Marvel Now version with the hood (that series was an excellent read), I want a real full fledged effort of a Bradstreet version, I want a new Tbolts version, I want a War Machine version (how cool was that!), I would want movie versions like an updated Thomas Jane and a new Ray Stevenson War Zone, both with the photo real tech. A photo real Dolph Lundgren?! Yes please lol. I want it ALL!

    What is your preferred e-tailer?

    EE all day. Free mint condition package guarantee, great selection, top notch customer service, pricing at MSRP or just over and free shipping option. For collectors who wait and stack their orders or just outright collect a fair amount of stuff, you would really never have to pay a shipping cost.
  8. Yeah my credit card takes a beating after Spidey and X-Men waves come out lol. To think of it, my credit card is always taking a beating as of late cause between all the figure lines, there’s just awesome stuff dropping left and right! The 4th case in the box is for a buddy who gave me the money to preorder it for him as I’m slowly converting him from a retail hunter into a EE customer lol.
  9. No I could care less about Shadowking really lol. I do however always buy 2 cases/waves of Spidey and X-men assortments, for investment purposes (should that rainy day come where I have to sell figures)
  10. Yeah Trasher is the bread winner for me for this wave, been wanting a Legend of him for quite a while. Second is Puma as classic villains (especially Spidey villains) are what I live for. 6-Armed Spidey was close to being my #2 pick of the wave as I LOVED the original ToyBiz figure as a kid lol.
  11. Kingpin has arrived! This marks the first time I’ve bought an extra wave in order to open and build the BAF, since the ToyBiz day’s.
  12. Wasn’t quite sure where to post this but in case anyone would find this info useful, I’m gonna share it here. The double packed figure for X-Men Wave 5/Caliban BAF is Gambit. Also, as per usual, each of the seven figures comprising the wave will be available as individual singles to order as part of the etailer solid casepacks. The wave is, as of now, solicited to start shipping in May. Lastly, Ultimate Riders Wave 3 (Vespa/Xavier) is as of now, solicited for February shipping.
  13. EE shipped out my cases the other day. Should start seeing them in stores within the next few weeks I’d imagine but who knows as retail is very inconsistent, as mostly everyone is aware of at this point lol.
  14. I noticed a few people have the Dark Pheonix from the TRU X-Men 2 Pack on their fav figs from 2018 list but that set came out in the summer of 2017 lol. It is a nice figure though and to this day, that set was the hardest 2-Pack to track down (In my experience) since they re-introduced the 2pack line. I could be wrong but I also think it goes for the most money on eBay compared to all of the other 2-packs released over the last couple years. Hasbro...maybe do some more X-Men 2packs lol?
