    I think the Spider UK buck is perfect for Guardian. It's a little bit bigger than the standard dependable athletic build Bucky Cap buck and some of the sculpting details indicated that some type of suit is being worn by the character. They could've used a better buck for Mystique. The Dark Phoenix/Psylocke buck with its thicker thighs woulda made her high leg line more appealing. Even the overall "thicker" Moonstone buck would have been better, but in today's "need something to be offended by" society I think the kabosh has pretty much been put on that one. Speaking of that, how the hell did a naked guy with a patch of technology covering his business get through the censors? Not complaining, it's an awesome figure, it just seems kinda lopsided how they've toned down all the female figures as of late. Like I said, other than Scream we haven't seen hide nor hair of the Monnstone buck in over a year and that one actually more resembles 90% of the female characters as they appear in the comics.


    I just think that some butterfly joints would be better like the classic Deadpool body for instance.  

    About the body image thing, you have to keep in mind that for man it's ok to show everything besides the private parts and if the body itself is not "real" it's all ok. But when you do this for female figures it's "sexist" "misogynistist"  and "oversexuallizing" female bodies cannot be unrealistic for their standards. No cleavage or anything like that, because it hurts the idea of "body positiveness". All the usual crap. 

    It was very surprised actually that they gave us the pantless Psylocke and the Jim Lee Rogue instead of the "nun" Rogue.




  2. The best IW Thor by far. The only company that could beat that is Mezco. This dead of the Soul Web exclusive deal pissed me off, because the only thing that it does is jack up the price. 

    I really think that Bluefin will find a way to get it, meaning putting some effects with that. 

    The only down side of this figure is the lack of accessories. They could at least put an extra head.


  3. Waaaay better than the BAF. This will probably be a thing. They take some old BAFs repaint and release as single carded. Since I saw that Thanos I knew that.

    About the Best Buy thing, is actually very mice that other retailers are getting into the game, because gives us other options. 

    Since the fall of TRU, there is a huge gap to be filled and this move comes into that.

    @FASVB It actually the NYCC next which is one of the big 3 for figure reveals. followed by MCM London and Comic Con Paris (on the same weekend) Also as a Big Wolverine fan I'm surprised you aren't more excitment for Wendigo (one of his main foes) and Guardian, considered one of his closest friends and family.

    Oh there is a Paris Comic Con too? I forgot about that, So if Hasbro is there there is a slightly chance for a Fantomex release. It's just me again imagining things. 

    About your comment on my choices, sure Alpha Flight is very important and yes Guardian is still one of Logan's closest friends. Wendigo is one one of his main enemies and he also had some battles against Hulk too. But My excitement for Mystique surpasses those two. 

    At NYCC my guesses is that they will reveal the Magneto three pack with Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch and the Anim Zola figure that was also teased. Maybe a Jim Lee Storm and the Gambit with stubble. Also that Hydra Cap that was teased at SDCC.

    They will mostly show the figures already revealed so far since SDCC with some few additions. 




  5. I a little late on this topic, but yeah that was pretty clear that we would see some Canadian characters and this will probably become a theme from now on.

    The Alpha Flight characters will mostly be split into new Deadpool themed waves  that will come now at least once a year.  The question is how can they make new Deadpools if mostly all of them have already been released? 

    The other option is the AF characters being put into X-Men themed waves. To me, this last option is a most likely one.  

  6. As a huge Wolverine fan I could not choose a better figure out of these than the Weapon-X.  The sculpt is amazing. I really hope that they put and extra head. Either with a screaming face or unmasked and angry. Not that goofy face from the Legendary Riders. Or another possibility is that the helmet would be removable.

    My second pic is Mystique. We all knew that she was coming, but seeing her now it's like a whole other thing. The gun is from the Vintage Black Widow and the body is mostly reused from Blink or Elektra I guess and I really don't care.  The head sculpt is awesome. I hope she comes with some fists too.

    The other two figures are very cool. I have read Alpha Flight a long time ago and I mostly enjoyed. I don't have a huge attachment for the characters, but they are very important and I recognize that. It's very nice that Hasbro is putting some love in them now. Guardian is nice, but I really think that they should have chosen a better buck for him.  When we saw Sasquatch back in the Deadpool wave we pretty much guessed that they would have eventually give us a Wendigo. Again, not much attachment to the character, but looks very nice. 

    Every time now that we have some event in Canada is pretty much   certain that we will see some Canadian characters being released. So at the next event you will pretty much know that  at least two alpha flight members will come. 

    I would guess that if this becomes some sort of "theme", the other events in London and Italy should have Hasbro releasing other character from British and Italian origin or relation.  Which would be very cool actually. 

    From the UK we have a lot to choose from. I would love to see a Banshee and a Meggan. From Italy the only one that comes to mind is Count Nefaria.


  7. This probably the best built Deadpool of this scale. The proportions are awesome, articulation and all. Except for pain that he has none. He would benefit a lot from a  good shading.  The eyes are cool and all. BUT no guns? Not even a single pistol? This is just dumb. They put unnecessary things like alternate belt buckles but no guns?  This is a big drawback on this figure.

    You may argue that we can buy guns from third parties or use guns from other figures. But for that price tag giving him tons of hands and no weapons is just stupid. 

    I really hope that they fix this. 


  8. The unmasked head is definitely the best feature of this figure.  I saw some other reviews and people got better painted ones so I guess you were no so lucky. The hair to the side puts some dramatic effect but limits a bit which poses you can put the figure on. 

    But what really bothers me and I think all are like this, is the huge gap in the crotch area. Tha is very ugly. Psylocke has that problem too, but this figure looks a lot worse. I think that they should not use legs so skinny because that would make it easier to hide or just fix the peg and sue a shorter one. 

    In comparison I think the X-Force version looks better and the fact you can put the unmasked head on it is a plus. 

  9. Hello Jay!

    This figure is just awesome! I love this classic look for Bishop. I am a fan of the Jim Lee era, so I am most familiar with this look for him. Like I said in the Omega red comment, these two were the ones that was most excited for and I really hope to get them someday. He looks just perfect besides Cable. Another must have for me. 

    Since I'm not into the toybiz era and I have a special attachment to this look for the characters because of the comics and the cartoon, I will stick with him as the best out of the two. Sure he's simple, but effective  and in keeping with the classic look for the character.
