  1. I also liked the Eternals movie and I am not afraid to admit it is one of the very few Phase 4 movies I regularly revisit. I only disliked Ikaris and Druig switching adaptations.
  2. Transformers can get a car license for most of their live-action figures and it still costs the same price as a regular figure from that size class. I can get a Studio Series Deluxe class Jolt with the Chevy Volt license for the same price as Studio Series Deluxe class Dino or Gamer Edition Sideswipe which both turn into generic cars. Dino is a movie character who transformed into a Ferrari. But Mattel owns the Ferrari license.
  3. Yo, how could I forget Cowboy hat Wolverine? That figure made me realize Hasbro is finding the most obscure Wolverine costume for a quick cash grab. I believe everybody wanted the tier rewards that came with The Haslab Engine of Vengeance rather than the engine itself! Also, why didn't Hasbro include a Gabe Reyes figure to compliment Robbie? He plays a key role in Robbie's origin. The Avengers Gamerverse figures just had ugly face sculpts. The unmasked Tony Stark head looked more like Shartimus Prime than Tony Stark. Captain America looked stupid. Ms. Marvel was just a straight-up repaint.
  4. What are some of the biggest flops in all of Marvel Legends? What business decisions by Hasbro flopped like a fish? These are not decisions that were bad for business but it still worked! I am looking at how the No Way Home Spider-Men figures are handled. These are Marvel Legends decisions Hasbro made that show abysmal results. Here are some of mine in no particular order: 1. The Eternals wave. Alright, first thing first, this is not my 'Who asked for this crap?' moment. I am guilty of buying every figure minus Ajak. We knew Hasbro would make an Eternals wave, as they have done with almost every new MCU movie since 2013. I still see these figures on store shelves. I would say it is the handling of those figures. On paper, they all have unique body molds. At a closer look, it is just a bunch of dudes in robes with different geometric shapes on their costumes. The faceprints were off. In my honest opinion, if they had better representations of their powers. These figures could have sold better. Only Kingo had a somewhat good representation of his powers. Ikaris literally has glowing eyes. Hasbro couldn't shell out some budget to create an eyebeam effect. Thena had weapons but the handles were painted black instead of translucent. Druig could have included a mind-control head. For Phastos and Sprite, I used Studio Series Lockdown. That was a bad figure. So, I turned him into an illusion cast by Sprite and I gave his hook to Phastos for his techie powers. Kro should have been the BAF instead of Gilgamesh. Kro, by the way, is an excellent figure. 2. The double-packing of certain figures. Some of these made sense from a general popularity. Hasbro flopped hard when it came time to decide which figures would be double-packed. Most of what I am about to name ended up shelf warming and went on discount. Here are some of mine: Ant-Man and Wasp from the Cull Obsidian Wave. See why I included 'almost every new MCU movie'? Ant-Man and the Wasp did not get their own wave and were included in the second wave of Infinity War figures. Hasbro double-packed them over the likes of Thor and Black Widow and it is made clear almost nobody cared for them. Superior Iron Man over Cable in the Zabu wave. This might be my personal frustration over Gamestop screwing me over on my pre-order and every e-tailer having him on back pre-order. He is sold out everywhere and I live in Canada. But why would Hasbro double-pack Superior Iron Man over Cable when his previous comic-based Legend was also in hot demand (that one was excusable since he was part of a Deadpool wave), sold out, and is coming in hot from his appearance in X-Men '97. Why is it so hard to get him?
  5. Wolverine is missing his bone claws and for better or worse, depending on your point of view, Deadpool is also missing his black 'space guns'.
  6. I was hoping for Deadpool's ass. This works too though and what better way for Deadpool to take another jab at his worst enemy.
  7. I hope Hasbro gives us other comic Eternals. However, for Makkari, do they go the 'safe' route and give us the current black female version or do they do the white male one?
  8. I love Ryan Stegman's art. But I really hate Cyclops's look. He is drawn like a teenager!
  9. Ha! Cable in a pacifier is something I never thought would see the light of day! Also, why does Marvel not use the latest iterations of some of their characters?
  10. I will pick up this issue solely to see her interactions with T'Challa. I pray Jed McKay does not mess up their dynamic.
  11. Am I the only one who hates John Romita Jr's art? What is that face? Couldn't Marvel have picked a better artist for the homage cover?
  12. Finally! Marvel is giving more spotlight to Angel! The Krakoan era did him dirty. Of the original 5 X-Men, Warren is easily the least represented in mainstream media and even the comics in recent years have not given Warren much attention compared to Scott, Jean, Hank, and even Bobby. As a Cyclops fanboy, I am most excited for this series during the From the Ashes era.
  13. X-Men '97 has done the Summers family huge justice. Scott is a true leader and we dive into his role as a father.The thumbnail sums up the badass family that is the Summers-Grey
