  1. Yep, pretty frustrating experience. I was refreshing and saw it up and added it to my cart but it was gone by the time I went to complete the purchase. Hasbro Pulse sucks.
  2. Another vote for Hulk, who would have probably won my vote for best figure no matter what because I was so desperate for an updated comic Hulk. But he turned out great, so it's not a vote just for Hulk (finally!), but a great Hulk. Then, probably 80th Cap and 80th Thor.
  3. I also vote emphatically for a properly sized Sasquatch, who should be 10" and wider. And yes, an angrier expression would be nice. John Byrne even gave us a closeup of that! Next, would probably be Beast, who is too big.
  4. I'm on board and would be interested. My current setup is have Sasquatch standing on a riser to give him more height in the background. I haven' t thought about a price though. But probably not that much. And I would want them painted because I'm lazy lol
  5. More than pumped to get this set and was super surprised when news broke last Friday afternoon as I wasn't expecting anything else new this year, let alone a big release like this. I already pre-ordered. Did y'all remember to check the "Ship in Amazon packaging" option? (I didn't initially because I didn't know what it meant and then there was no way to edit that option, so I canceled and then reordered.) Shaman was the one I was hoping for most. I also thought they would use the Forge boots but they didn't. But now that I checked his classic look, his boots aren't like that anyway but are like Capt America boots but with a split down the middle of the cuff. The Puck re-issue is welcome too so we can actually have him. I wanted Box as well, preferably the original/classic blue version of him. The red/gold version is too similar to Iron Man/Hulkbuster. And I wanted Wild Child too. And yes, Box is not that tall. A figure around the size of the recent Legends Thing would be right. I will put one of my Wolverines with this team too. We have enough Wolverines for every team. 😁 We still need a bigger 10" Sasquatch! With enraged head is great idea from bashpics99. But I'll hold off on that gripe since Hasbro has been so good to us lately.
  6. The new Beast is great, but too big. They obviously knew he would be compared with the much celebrated Toybiz Beast who was also too big so they made him similarly sized, I think. I also have the non-hairy human Beast from the TRU X-Men box set. I think that's a pretty good size. I agree that it's doubtful we'll get the same characters redone to proper scale so soon. But I am pretty surprised that the Hasbro people seem to read toy sites like this and respond to what fans want. They've even admitted to it in some interviews. So I guess, keep posting about it and maybe it'll happen. They've given me almost all my most-wanted figures recently (comic Hulk, classic Colossus, classic Thor, Beast). They even fixed the pretty minor quibble most people had with Cap's head being too fat, and he was only released a few years ago. So you never know.
  7. Thanks for the comparison shots. I just got mine today in the mail! So I no longer have to rely on internet photos. I agree he is properly sized.
  8. Yeah, I would definitely buy another Sasquatch if Hasbro or anyone else like Diamond Select made him again in the right scale at 10" tall. But I assume the chances of Hasbro remaking him are slim because as you said, he's not a major character and they just released the BAF pretty recently. I'm glad we got a Guardian and hope for Shaman next. The Hulkbuster BAF was almost 10" tall so that's some evidence that a 10" Sasquatch could be packaged as a BAF. I was talking about the 80th Anniversary Thor, which I thought was too big like the other Hasbro versions of modern Thor. I don't have the 80th version in hand yet (it should be delivered tomorrow though!), but based on photos I saw, I thought he was like a head taller than Cap, which would put him well over 7 feet tall and almost the size of Colossus, just like the other Thors. But now after your comment, I looked around and I'm seeing other photos that shows maybe he's not quite as tall as I thought. Like this one: Either way, I'm okay with a properly-sized Thor or an oversized Thor because I feel he should appear mighty and imposing!
  9. Totally agree on all points, especially about how the Sasquatch BAF was undersized. He should tower over Hulk and Juggernaut, but the Sasqutch BAF is smaller than the new Hulk and Juggs figures, in mass. Sasquatch was one of my favorite characters as evidenced by my username. I've brought up the undersized issue before, but others didn't seem to appreciate it and felt I was needlessly complaining, because I think they did not appreciate Sasquatch's size as they were surprised by the size disparity when I posted some classic images of these characters together. Anyway, I was hesitant to bring it up again, but I will happily jump on board with your message. 🙂 I remember all the characters at the heights you described. But I'm a fan of the classic characters. Since then, apparently Juggernaut has been upsized to the height of Sasquatch, and Hulk is also depicted big as a house. I also feel that Wendigo should be slightly smaller than Sasquatch and for this reason, I prefer the old Wendigo figure, not just for scale but also appearance. I keep hoping Marvel Select could release a Sasquatch at the proper size. The Select Groot is 10" tall and that is what Sasquatch should be. But they always say they have no plans to make Sasquatch whenever someone asks them on their blog. I also agree about all of the Wrecking Crew being too big. Those were on an older sculpt with the weird ball thigh joints, so maybe Hasbro can release those figures again with updated sculpts. Warpath was on that buck too, but I think he's properly sized. And I also agree about the new Beast being too big. One size discrepancy I don't really mind is the new Thor. He shouldn't be that big, and should be only a few inches taller than Cap, but I don't mind it because he is a powerful character so his size should convey that IMO.
  10. Agreeing with others and some new suggestions: Warpath Beta Ray Bill Drax the Destroyer The Champion Hercules Shaman Doc Samson Ronan The Accuser Dr. Strange
  11. Exactly. Hasbro could have so easily taken the easy, lazy way out and just reused the Juggernaut body for Hulk. I probably would have been ok with that. But instead they created a whole new sculpt that is pretty much the same size. I think it looks better and is actually proportioned better than Jugg's body. Hats off to them. I'm totally happy with this Hulk in every way -- size, color, costume, look, paint shading. I even thought I'd dislike the torn shirt he comes with and would never use it, but I actually like the shirt once I got it and use it. It kind of covers the disconnected separation between shoulder and torso.
  12. Yeah, as another "Scale Nazi" and big fan of these two characters, this comparison was important to me too. So here it is. I just got the new Hulk. This is the old BAF Juggernaut but he should be the same size as the new 2-pack Juggernaut. I'm still awaiting my new Juggernaut on pre-order. They're essentially the same size. Jugg's fists are bigger. Hulk's pecs might be a bit bigger. But overall, very similar, which is great. I really wanted a Hulk that could stack up to Juggernaut and we finally got one. All other previous incarnations were a tad too small.
  13. Agreed. And yes, I was excited to get a Legends Sasquatch. Just wish he was bigger. But I like him. In fact, he was the figure that started me collecting Legends. I had previously collected Marvel Universe scale figures only.
  14. It comes down to the fact that Sasquatch has towered over other large characters like Hulk in the John Byrne-era Alpha Flight comics. Now Legends Hulk is the same size as Sasquatch and Legends Juggernaut is even bigger than Sasquatch. So to me, that would justify a 12" Sasquatch figure if everyone else is increasing in size. A 12" Sasquatch would fall in the acceptable range of his classic comics size to me compared with other large Legends figures, as shown in that YouTube video. And as I said, slightly too large is preferable to me for a large character and that can be masked just by crouching the figure's legs like the Select Colossus fitting in with other Legends. I know Hasbro is not going release another Legends Sasquatch since they just gave us one, so I was hoping I could somehow get another larger version of him another way. But I'm sure there won't be another Sasquatch in any form. I was hoping Select would release one but they continue to say they have no plans to make Sasquatch.
  15. Slightly. But I'd prefer slightly too big over too small. You can always crouch them down to get them to appear a little smaller. That's what I do with the Select Colossus to fit him in with Legends scale. On the Legends scale, Sasquatch should be like 10" (roughly the height of Select Groot but wider). The Sasquatch Legends BAF was only 8.5". Too small. He's the same size as Hulk and I feel he should tower over Hulk like on the classic cover of Hulk 272. Here's a Youtube video showing a 12" Icons Beast with other 6" Legends and 7" Select figures. If that was Sasquatch instead of Beast, that looks about right to me size-wise.
