    The heavy plastic IS troublesome. But I’d rather Hasbro use plastics than cloth for Legends. Waaaay back when I was collecting DC Super Powers figures I hated the cloth capes. 

    I’ve no solution to offer on how Hasbro can continue to use plastic but keep articulation but if they move to cloth I’d be bummed. 

    Yeah, I prefer Plastic to cloth

    I think they fact that they've been boasting about their "plastic-free" packaging for toys that are made of plastic shows this has been PR spin the whole time. It's been about saving money with the price of oil (and plastic) rising higher, now that it's dropping, the cost of paper is going up a bit, and seeing the negative reaction to this whole thing, they're pulling back. I wonder if they've seen any kind of slump in sales on their collector lines. I'm usually an opener, but there are some themes that I had been collecting MOC and passed on a few new releases because of the new packaging. I'm sure I'm not alone.

    To be honest, no-one throws the toys in the bin. What also shows this is ridiculous, this what happened when I got my Spider-man Noir/Spider-Ham 'Two pack'. I opened the packaging got out the figure and the accessories, enjoyed it immensely and then i got all the packaging and put it into the recycling bin, the exact same thing i did with all my Marvel Legends figures. This whole plastic free idea seems to be for those kids who just pen the figure the minute they get out of the show and throw it in the nearest bid (or god forbid the street)

    They've already reversed course regarding retro figures across multiple lines. Sucks for now, but I have no doubts that within a year or two this whole bull___ thing will be over.

    The fact that they are keeping the Retro line, shows that this is a PR stunt. 'We are doing our bit for the environment by having all our products being Plastic Free (except for the line which has the most plastic packaging)'

    Ok yeah I get they are two different characters. But the info that Mimic copies only the  original XMens Powers is the interesting part. I admit, I wasn’t a committed follower of that cartoon but it seems like from spotty memory and an old ToyBiz figure that Morph only copied XMen too. Again, spotty recall her but didn’t the old Toybiz figures extra heads include Cyclops, Wolverine and I want to say Gambit heads? Seems an argument can be made that Morph draws inspiration from both Mimic and Changling

    And side note: what an oddly specific power set. Only copying a very small group of XMen. What would have happened to this guy if the XMen didn’t exist? Haha comics are a special place

    The original Toy Biz toy had good and evil heads along with Wolverine and Cyclops heads.. Morph is the XTAS version of Changeling and can shapeshift into anyone like Mystique. Mimic can copy any mutant powers as long as he is near them, though some like the original X-Men powers eventually came permeant due to prolonged exposure.

    Ufff... that is a hard pill to swallow

    but dang, every one seems to be seeing new product at Target. Everything in my hunting ground only has seen remnants of the Black Panther Legacy wave. A wave I’ve long ago decided not to grab

     

    Yeah, the two pack is ridiculous especially as Noir is a great figure, I would have taken some extra hands over Spider-Ham
