    speaking of ock, the possibility of a new Superior Spider-man is now even higher. they may not match but I can see Hasbro using the waldoes again for both that and the Aaron Davis Black Iron Spider

    It is possible, but again they should have given us the 4 waldo option since both of those use four. 

     

    Also maybe we can get Iron Spider MJ:

    It's sad but I doubt Hasbro will rerelease the Hellfire Club box set since it was a SDCC exclusive. And by the time they resell the Guard they'll probably charge a little more due to the overall price increases.

    Yeah, they aren't going to re-release the Hellfire Set since it was a SDCC/Pulsecon exclusive. Chances are the figures may get a single release later on.

    Wonderful! Maybe now I can get my appetite back tonight.

    Yeah, I know some of you may think I'm overreacting, but that story line to me was one of the most awful, contrived, ridiculous and despicable things I've ever heard of....I didn't buy the comics and I vowed to never buy Spidey after that. 

    Totally agree, Sins Past is one of those stories that you wonder how it got the green-light. Still The twins are clones and now gone, and Gwen was never a super villain hussy.

    Out of nowhere-

    This month back in 2003, the United States Court of International Trade ruled that the X-Men are not human. 

    LOL actually they ruled (Toybiz Inc. vs. United States) that action figures are toys, not dolls (because they represented "nonhuman creatures) which basically cut the tariff rate in half (at the time, taxes were higher on dolls-don't ask me why- and Toybiz wanted to get out of paying the higher tax; judge ruled in their favor, granting them that sweet sweet import tax reimbursement.

    Toybiz then thanked the firm of Nelson & Murdock. 

    Mutants and the law. Gotta love it.

    I actually remember that story.

    Definitely should've had a head where he's gritting his teeth or something 'cause the closed mouth looks too passive here.

    Not for nothin' but a boutonniere on the lapel would look good too, distinguishing this suited look from the others.

    I'm thinking that adamantium bit is a retcon....the nutjob doctor that found and operated on him was on the skids career wise; can't see how he would have access to something as expensive and rare (and difficult to work with) as adamantium. The story said it was an "unbendable steel alloy", and at the time both adamantium and vibranium were well known in the Marvel Universe, so if it was either, Roy Thomas would certainly have said so. But, we know how these things go.....

    Anyway, the brass knuckles and baseball bat are nice touches. The tommy gun from the old Chameleon figure will come in handy here.

    It's not a retcon, he's skull was originally steel, but during the Brand New Day era, he was badly injured and Mr. Negative and Dr. Trauma transplanted his brain into a new body with an  Adamantium Skeleton.

     

    As for the figure, I'm not a big Hammerhead fan, so I'll probably pass.

    Hasbro's ryan_ting posted up a image with a missing leg day joke in there giving us a new look at the upcoming Marvel Legends X-Men themed Bonebreaker Build-A-Figure. Look for the wave (Siryn, Classic Havok, Darwin, Wolverine With Heated Claws, Classic Sabretooth, Maggott and Vulcan) with this figure to go up for pre-order next week by the 27th.
