    I've enjoyed the handful of comics I've read by Al Ewing, but it just seems like even writers that i normally enjoy tend to have trouble writing satisfying events... be it Rick Remender, Jason Aaron, or even Hickman (although i enjoyed Infinity... just felt like his "finale" (before returning to do x-men stuff) of Secret Wars seemed rushed and was subpar.   I really wish Marvel would have a moratorium on events for a few years and just let the writers do their thing with ongoing comics.  I guess they do generate excitement and boost sales, at least in the short-run.  Of course i haven't read too many comics in the last 3-4 years so feel free to dismiss me as an old grouch. 

    They stated they weren't going to do events for 18 months and about two months in started announcing events. Sadly events are Marvel's main way of boosting sales.

    Agreed.  It's a want that underlines the call for an Iron Man Legends wave or two.  There are so many armors, among good guys and bad guys alike, that have yet to be attempted.  And it's not like Iron Man is getting any more popular.  Strike while the Iron Man is hot!  (Sorry...)

    Especially what got me back into Marvel Legends was the Iron Man 3 (Iron Monger BAF) wave. The did it once why not again and again?

    I'm an Iron Man fan, but I've always disliked the retro look for Titanium Man. With those round eyes he looks like a friedly robot with the body of a metalized Hulk, like the armor equivalent of a baby-faced body-builder. So I'm on the side that wants a late-1980s-to-2000s Titanium Man (basically, a redo of the 2011 Titanium Man figure).

    I want to be greedy and have both Boris and Gremlin armours

    Yes that's no accident....o'l Boris actually was incredibly big. He had genetic experiments done to him in order to fit the huge armor. In fact I think I read, for a time, BLACK WIDOW was one of his KGB combat instructors....

    I don't remember him needing an experiments to fit in the armour. Boris was a man-mountain before he got anywhere near an armour

    The synopsis does indicate that not everybody will have the same opinion to the outlawing, but it doesn't seem to imply the "whose side are you on" and "debate with fisticuffs" aspects which are the meat of any Civil War story.

    Just because the Synopisis doesn't mentioned Hero vs Hero doesn't mean it won't happen, look at AXIS. It seemed it was going to be a good old Hero Vs Villain clash and then it became hero Vs Hero. Hopefully the kids are more willing to talk things out and  compromise unlike the adults, so we don't get a hero vs hero story

    The premise is similar to Civil War only on a surface level, really. CW involved the outlawing of heroes, but only if they were unregistered. The focal point of the story was the hero vs. hero angle, the battle of ideologies and the assimilation of vigilantism into the system. This here is a complete prohibition with no "unless" and no sides to take.

    There are still sides to take, their will be those who agree and those who don't. Those who will obey the law and those will be fight it it, just like Civil War. Hopefully though this will be handled way better than both Civil War and especially Civil War 2

    I mean, the character selection seems decent to me.  I'm assuming the designs are pretty movie-accurate, it's really just the deco on the MCU figs (besides Taskmaster) that seems to be lacking.

    I could see some folks being salty that the comic offerings seem to be more Cap and Iron Man oriented than Black Widow oriented but Black Widow doesn't exactly have a prominent supporting cast of her own.  And as much fun as an all-Russia themed wave could have been a lot of the Winter Guard/Soviet Super Soldiers are probably obscure enough that they're still a couple years away from seriously getting looked at.

     

    Their isn't anything wrong with the comic figures in my opinion, Bucky has history with natasha, Spymaster is a spy like Natasha and Crossbones could be a nod to thier encounter in the Civil War movie

    That would entail that Hasbro get off their hands and do an actual IM based line that wasn't involved with the MCU, and I thought that was the next best bet after his particular movie arc and the current Avengers arc ended, but with the rumored return of Tony Stark (through AI or hologram and flashbacks, I assume) it looks like Hasbro has been set up to have he and the similarly returning Steve Rogers anchor yet more movie based waves. I think our hopes of getting all those comic based IM characters, much less redos of previous out of scale ML versions and versions done in the 4" line, are getting dashed more and more by the day

    The sad thing is, a comic Iron Man wave would be popular and they could make loads of waves

    I'm hoping the most recent images of Squirrel Girl was a victim of a bad last minute show time primping. I can't imagine they'd go with the Golden Girls' Blanche look over the cool, confident, defiant look of the original images.

    For some reason Hasbro seem to be dropping the ball with female faces. The Lightning Collection Kimberly looks like she's high on drugs.

    Wow I'm surprised by these new reveals, and my Surprise comes from how well... cheap they look, and as far as movie figures go they barely look like the sculptor cared about representing the actors likeness, at first look the whole wave screams retrograde, like this wave should have been released in 2015, I'm most stunned by how poor Yelena and Guardian's faces look, both almost have a basic line feel, the BAF looks really wonky and way too toony for me, I don't know how I feel about this wave in the end, Taskmaster looks pretty damn great, and the early comic reveals I'm interested in but these new figures I'm seeing are not what I expected (but we will see as more pictures come out, and the get released, in hand they may prove themselves better)

     

     

    The MCU figures remind me of the early MCU Cap figures where they tried to give the figure generic alt heads so they could pass as either comic or MCU versions (and didn't really work for either)
