  1. Yeah youre right but knowing hasbro they like to reuse stuff and not spend extra money to retool items just of one figure, If anything the chair should have been completely different, not only the wheels
  2. In Mexico the sentinel is being sold on preorder at a local Toystore for $11k (mexican pesos) its a bit on the high price but not too crazy thinking its being imported (in mexico all imported products over $50 carry a 19% import tax fee) that and the shipping costs to import them its not that crazy (specially if you consider the toy store is doing all the work importing the items, and shipping it straight to your house once they get them in their facilities) its good news for people here who want to get it but for me I still think the pricepoint is a bit on the high side to begin with for what it is.
  3. Aside from the Black Widow I dont see the need for any of these figures, Im dissapointed the Iron Spider doesnt include the tentacles or however they are called, and I think that they should have included a ronin (with a bow and quiver and the quantum suit 2-pack Hawkeye head) instead of the Black Panther (that black panther has been rereleased a bunch of times al ready
  4. Yeah the chair is not movie accurate, Im thinking that hasbro didnt want to spend extra tooling on a more detailed chair, that or they plan to reuse this wheelchair for a Classic Comic Figure of Professor X and just didnt want to make 2 different chairs
  5. The Female Prime Sentinel figure is nice and all but not that big of a deal, that one and the battle damaged parts, the only one I kind of liked were the tier 1 Master Mold head, I would have rather like to see a second tentacle, maybe some blast effects for his hands, stuff like that would be cool. Another thing I would like to see is if this continues to sell really well before the deadline (I doubt they will) but I think it would be awesome if Hasbro came back and lowered the price (In the end the price has a lot to do with production and molding costs, if they in the end make at least double what they initially wanted it would be cool for the price to get dropped by getting a lot more backers than they originally planed, I dont think itll happen but it would be great cause many might want to get multiples but for 350 each cant afford more than one maybe lowering the price a little could make people be like ok, Ill spend a little more than one but Ill get two but still less than $500)
  6. No, I dont think that's the case with selling toys or making merchandise, I just think that some times this new focus and practice lends itself perfectly to create more merchandise of things that otherwise wouldnt be waranted, I dont think Marvel's comic division thinks too much of making stories, characters or designs just to sell toys and merchandise, but I do think that these "events" that now happen too often make it easier for companies who have merchandising rights to tie into these events, in the case of toys its clear that even though toy companies dont influence the comics directly they are kept in mind when coming up with these events cause toys usually take about 2 years from planning, logistics and production to see the light of day so its reasonable to think that these toy companies know what's comming down the line from the comics in advanced cause it seems like those times between when the comics come out and toys "inspired" from those comics has been shortened a lot. In any case I think one thing is the toy part of the problem of fatigue created by milking characters and another is the comic side by the editorial seeing potential in a storyline and making it bigger than it should was originally planned by the creative team behind that book, just to create more sales in crossovers. In any case one feeds the other and in some cases it works but in most cases it just creates a fatigue in the consumer's mind (maybe the storyline isnt that bad but youre reading it and all of a sudden the next big event is already announced and its just one after another)
  7. I think marvel has been just grabbing what they see is popular and just going overboard, it happened with Spiderverse, later with Deadpool now its Venom, it seems like if some story or character or storyline suddenly is seen popular on its own they grab it and make it global in all their titles/characters and beat the horse untill its dead just to sell as fast and as easily as possible rather than really putting some good thought into storylines, this is mainly what has been affecting comics over the last years, they seem to care less about developing good intresting stories and more on just selling as much as possible with as little effort as they can, this practice also helps in creating more and more merchandise to sell (specially on toys) that otherwise would feel gimmicky or dumb
  8. yeah I know about that, I have all those comics I mainly said late 90's cause thats what people mainly think of that costume, if you say 90's cable most people think of the first costume like the one from the marvel legends figure. I agree he wore the blue/yellow costume more.
  9. Dont like the silver knee pads, I dont know if its the knee pads or the brown boots that are throwing me off (im used to just yellow boots for a look like this one) but the figure looks nice overall, I dont buy the Amazing Yamaguchi figures and dont plan to start now but the figure looks nice, hopefully Mafex does a true 90's Comic Book Cable later
  10. I hope youre rightthat movie set would be awesome, I wonder if the comic set is a Giant Size X-Men set
  11. I like it, maybe its just me cause I see a lot of negative comments but I dig the figure, I agree a Pat mulligan Toxin (regular human sized figure) would be cool but Im ok with this one as well.
  12. Ive been really hoping for this figure for a while now, never really cared for the newer design they made before. Hopefully ill be able to get my hands on one
  13. I cant wait to get mine in the mail, I kind of would have liked this figure to be made in the sunfire mold but beggars cant be choosers and Ill take this one over it being made on the pizza spidey mold like the older one
  14. Looks weally nice, I still like the classic ML one a lot, It could have been better, like its missing the bow and quiver and the sword sheah, and even though I really liked the headsculpt when it came out this marvel select one looks far better, still I dont really collect Select figures other than the ocasional big character like juggernaut so I can say im passing on this one even though it looks really nice.
