  1. The first video review that I've seen of the retro Invisible Woman in-hand was posted: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Il7b2N2bHW8 Sue has the same bad headsculpt that we saw in the reveal. I'm glad this reviewer is honest and calls it terrible and suggests that Hasbro should allow some avenue for products to be changed based on fan feedback before it goes into production. I doubt that will happen but I'd definitely be in favor of it. I agree with pretty much everything the reviewer says, including the fact that the big hair design is not the problem (it's the face sculpt that's bad), and the fact that the artwork on the card shows an attractive Sue that is way better than the figure's actual face. The same user has reviews of the other figures in the wave too.
  2. I know a lot of people were requesting the 80th Anniversary Cap with a lighter blue, so now they can have him. He is missing the black shading on his mask for a true classic look though. I do feel the 80th version looks better and also prefer the 80th headsculpt as well. Despite that, I assume I'll try to get this new one as well. I do think the bigger shield (I believe) is an improvement. The permanent holes isn't ideal so I guess I'll stick the bullet ricochet effects there.
  3. If the headsculpt looked like that image, I would have been more happy. The one they gave us does not look toned, is kind of fat faced. Dr. Strange is toned in my eyes, with pronounced cheekbones. I saw the Diamond Select Gallery version of him and that looks like to Dr. Strange to me. And it is a more dynamic looking sculpt. Anyway, overall it's a good figure and I plan to try to get him.
  4. I voice my agreement that can be summarized as: Enthusiasm for the long-awaited classic Dr. Strange is tempered by Walmart exclusivity, rising price, and slightly off appearance. The slightly off appearance refers to the lack of paint contrast in his outfit, a head sculpt that does not scream Dr. Strange to me, and an overall lack of dynamic appearance. I feel that the previous Dormammu Dr. Strange headsculpt looked more like Dr. Strange, looked more dynamic, and had a better paint on the cape with gold that went all around the collar. The new one's face looks older, is a bit flabby, and his hair on the sides should have been shorter IMO. In the end, the figure is good and everyone will get it because it's classic Dr. Strange but it seems slightly off.
  5. If Siryn is coming, Banshee can't be far behind. We also need Angel. Classic Cyclops would be an easy crowdpleaser. I already have the 2-pack version with Dark Phoenix but I know many don't and would like to see a remake. Sign me up for more Alpha Flight. I know some people want Marrina, but we need a BOX! And just like they recently released a bigger, angrier Colossus, let's do the same with Sasquatch!! I could also see Blob as an X-Men BAF.
  6. The same user also has a video review of Iceman and Cyclops. I had considered if the new Iceman could stand in as my default, classic Iceman. I do like the blue and the more muscular body they used over the skinny Juggernaut wave Iceman, but I'm not sure if his different look could pass off as a classic Iceman. But maybe.
  7. Yeah, I thought the original photos of Shadowcat that had some people worried about her face looking bigger on one side was just bad posing because her face was tilted or jutting in that direction. I did not think it would actually be jutting in real life and, as we can see from these photos, the face is symmetrical.
  8. Good photos. These are the ones I wanted to see -- size comparison and also headswap with classic Colossus. I knew this Colossus would be bigger so I preordered the wave just to build him even though I wasn't interested in all the other characters. I could not pass up a bigger Colossus! I had also planned to remove his "suspenders" and have him shirtless so this is a good preview showing that that is possible. I'm also hoping that Hasbro puts the classic look Colossus on this bigger body. I think the headswap looks a bit off in these photos. The 2-pack head sits a bit too high or appears a bit small, so I probably won't be doing that.
  9. Oh ok, yeah I see earlier in this thread people were talking about that. It's the Warlock wave Colossus that's the base.
  10. Actual in-hand photos of AOA Sabretooth were posted by Gardengnome4 on Reddit. The first I've seen of him. He's a big boy, about the size of 2-pack Colossus. I only hope that the AOA Colossus BAF is much larger.
  11. Yeah, it's not my favorite look for Kitty and I doubt I will display her (although I did pre-order the wave to get Colossus), but it's not as bad as Sue. Yesterday, I looked to see some popular Youtubers' reaction to Sue's reveal because I had not seen their reaction and wanted to see if they said anything about it, and I saw that even people like Shartimus and Boog said Sue's face is bad during the first reveal about 3 weeks ago. So it sounds like it's a common feeling that Sue's face is bad and I'd bet that the Hasbro reps have heard the comments.
  12. I think in some cases, Hasbro should improve upon a figure whenever it has a chance to. My example would be the Red Skull wave Captain America. Good figure, but fat head! Then they released the better 80th Anniversary version of Cap. Same character but a much better sculpt and figure. So I don't think they should always stay with the same face, just for continuity or consistency. If an improvement is warranted, do it. In the case of Sue, they tried a different look and it went wrong. I can agree that putting Sue on a different body could have been a better change. The existing body does not bother me, but after seeing your comment and then looking at the figure, I could see her on a different body. That could have encouraged collectors like me who were on the fence about the upcoming Sue that they need to get this new one. And I think it's good that we're beating the dead horse about this. It's been talked about on every forum I've seen and since the Hasbro people pay attention, it's good to let them know. And that's another reason why I said that Dan "feigned being hurt" by Wade's negative comment because there is no way they haven't heard the uproar about that face sculpt by now.
  13. Yeah, I contemplated for a while (they are so similar to my Walgreens figures) but I broke down and preordered them. I figured I might regret it later if I didn't since I am a sucker for classic outfits. I'm sticking with my Walgreens Human Torch since I don't think the new retro one is better, but I did order the Pulse exclusive powered down Johnny.
  14. I did think those costumes looked cool and I liked the boots with the tread, but I'm a fan of the classic look, so for me that was the Walgreens version. I did end up buying the Skrull wave Ben though. They got the brow and jutting jaw right on him, and now he's my default Thing, even though I have the Walgreens one too.
