  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. Oh ok, yeah I see earlier in this thread people were talking about that. It's the Warlock wave Colossus that's the base.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. It's true these are all just repaints because all versions of Sue are on the same body mold. But the Super Skrull version is a totally different look. It's like saying black suit Spider-Man is just a repaint of Pizza Spider-man in his red and blue suit. While technically true since they are on the same body mold, they look drastically different and it would be more worth it to a collector to buy two totally different looking versions of the same character rather just buying what I was calling a straight repaint with a very similar design except, for example, the shade of blue as is the case with Walgreens Sue and the new retro Sue. The Walgreens Sue and Super Skrull Sue looked different though technically were just repaints of the same body. The Walgreens Sue and retro Sue are even more similar in design, making it less likely that a collector would want both. So, I was suggesting that Hasbro may have made additional changes to encourage a collector to get the new one.
  15. Yep, I do have the Sasquatch BAF and he was what got me into 6" scale Legends after previously only collecting the 3.75" scale figures. I couldn't pass up Sasquatch, so that started my 6" collection. I have him elevated on a stand in my display to simulate his correct size, so I'm hoping we can eventually get another true-to-size (in height and girth) version of him.
  16. I liked the Sue face on the Walgreens version. That's the only one I have. I did not feel the need to get the Super Skrull version since that isn't her classic look and I already had the Walgreens Sue. This upcoming retro one is a classic look so I wanted it. But if it was just a straight repaint with no changes, I would be hesitant because why buy the exact same figure I already have for just a slightly different shade of blue? Anyway, I did eventually order it even though they messed up the face. I'm sure I'll head swap her. But I can see why Hasbro would feel the motivation to mix things up so it's not just the exact same figure repainted. For Reed, they gave him a new lab coat. I'm not a huge fan of the salad fingers either. They also changed Ben's face. I don't think it looks as good as the Super Skrull Ben's face and I'm definitely not a fan of the no-teeth head.
  17. I'd back that Sasquatch so fast. Champion is another great option. I want both of those characters. I have the ToyBiz Giant-Man which is still pretty good so I would not be as urgent to get him but knowing me, I probably would anyway. I have no space or interest in these huge Galactuses and Sentinels, but I would like these other oversized characters. Or just make them deluxe figures like Surtur, which is 13".
  18. Yeah, Dan didn't like their responses but he was semi-smiling and then laughed. That's what I meant by feigning being hurt, not that he did like their responses. I agree that he didn't. And it seemed clear that the face sculpt won't be changed because they next talked about how the other guy gets products early so he'd be in the best position to see if it looks better in person. I think if they had changed the head sculpt and it looked great, then everyone would be happy. If they kept the same head sculpt, then some people would complain it's just a repaint and why is Hasbro cheaping out again? In this case, they changed the head sculpt and it turned out bad so no one's happy.
  19. I missed the live stream and when I later saw the small thumbnail photos of the new releases, I initially thought Armadillo might be a new Sasquatch and got excited. Similar coloring and a tiny head surrounded by massive shoulders like how John Byrne used to draw Sasquatch. I like the wider shoulders and torso but it would still need more height for a true to size Sasquatch. When I saw it was Armadillo, who I wasn't familiar with, I also thought of how the body could be reused for other big characters. I, like most collectors, want a new Rhino. But I also think that's unlikely as it seems like Hasbro is reusing bucks less for other large characters, which I think is a good thing. I'm just thinking of the Hulk, which is essentially the same size as Juggernaut, but the Hulk got its own new sculpt. There are other examples too, like some people thought Ursa Major would just be a retooled Wendigo/Sasquatch but it also turned out to be a new sculpt. I'm all in favor of new unique sculpts so I'm not complaining about that.
  20. Thanks for pinpointing the time. I wanted to see the exchange too but didn't want to sit through the 3 hour video to find it! Yeah I'm glad Wade brought that up. Dan just feigned being hurt by the comments but it sounds like there won't be any change to the face sculpt. ☹️ It seems like Hasbro made minor changes to most of the Fantastic 4 figures, like Ben has different head sculpts too from the two previous releases (I think the Super Skrull wave was the best head sculpt), so Sue's was probably also changed to make it different rather than just giving us a straight-up repaint of the exact same figure. So I think they were right to change it and It seems like they were going for the old look of Sue with big hair that's pictured on the retro package artwork which would have been fine but they just missed with the face.
  21. Hmm, didn't expect to be interested in this but the trailers and comic-accurate Abomination got my interest.
  22. You don't remember last year lol? I'm talking about the retro Rogue. I know some people eventually ended up liking it but I wasn't one of those people. But add me to the chorus saying ugh, what a buttugly head on the new Sue. And I'm also doubtful that it gets changed before production.
  23. Pumped for Tigra, and a bigger Colossus. Also interested in Ice Man, Sabretooth, Rogue, Magneto. Although not his classic outfit, a bigger Colossus is very welcome. Now if only we could get a bigger Sasquatch.... *sighs dreamily*
