  1. 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*
  2. I also prefer Cannonball in his New Mutants costume and hoped that his legged version to be that one, instead of just a redo of this outfit. I guess I will pass and keep my old Cannonball head on the Deadpool Sauron wave body.
  3. Thoughts and prayers for a larger Sasquatch being made by Diamond Select. By the way, you mentioned the Gamerverse Abomination, which is a little taller than Legends Hulk. I thought the Select Abomination as far as build and maybe even a bit taller. He even has the long arms already. https://marvelousnews.com/252-18074
  4. Add me to those calling for a Marvel Select Sasquatch. The Legends Sasquatch is too damn small! I'd be first in line to pre-order that one. Please get the sculpt right though by consulting 1980s Alpha Flight issues, but Select seems to be improving on their sculpts as seen with this Hulk, which is a vast improvement over their zombie Hulks that weren't even supposed to be zombies. The clean classic look is for me. I'm in agreement with others saying that this is a nice looking Hulk but verrry similar to the Legends Hulk and kinda too big for my Legends shelf but I could fudge it and damn if he doesn't look good and I'm not sure I could resist it if I saw it in person let me just do a quick search for a second do I need or not need okay whoops I ordered it....
  5. The Rogue headsculpt is not as bad as it originally appeared... but it's still kinda bad? Maybe it'll grow on me, or maybe it looks better in person. People who have the Select Rogue claim that headsculpt looks good but I cannot see how that can be. so maybe that's the case here too. I like the new Gambit's hair slightly better but I prefer the old one's colors so I'll probably stick with the old one. I wish he came with different arms so I could display him without his jacket.
  6. I'd be the first one in line for a DST Sasquatch done at the correct scale (10"). They could do it too because that's the height of the DST Groot. Although Sasquatch should be much broader obviously.
  7. Well Diamond Select, you surprised me. I wasn't expecting much from them, based on the cartoon drawing they showed. While some of DST's sculpts are great (including Colossus, Hulkbuster, Groot), their previous Hulks looked like veiny, out-of-proportion zombies. But I like this one a lot. My first thought was that it looks just like the Legends 80th Hulk but with a more expressive head. It's even the exact same shade of green. But I'm a huge fan of the Legends 80th Hulk. So I'm sure I'll get this one too. As for the butterfly joint discussion, I'm glad they didn't add it. A butterfly joint allowing front/forward movement messes up the sculpt. Just look at the gappy Figuarts Hulk. I think if a large figure has butterfly joints, then doing what Hasbro did with the Legends 80th Hulk is the way to go -- just put it on the back. Sacrificing the chest sculpt to add a joint I'll rarely use doesn't make sense IMO.
  8. Yeah, I was confused about the 3.75 scale name change to Marvel Legends because that's the name of the 6 inch scale. How are you supposed to differentiate which one when searching online for a Marvel Legends Captain America from a Marvel Legends Captain America? I also started with collecting 3.75 scale and switched to the 6 inch scale. I guess it was a good choice since the 3.75 scale became extinct.
  9. Ahhh that suuucks! I was going to say, when you cancel your old card, order a new card at the same time, and the purchase should automatically transfer to your new card. That's what happened with me when I lost a credit card and went to cancel it. I was afraid that all the things still outstanding that were tied to my old card would be lost. For example, I was still waiting for a refund to finish processing for an item I had returned. But all those leftover things were transferred to my new card so I didn't lose anything (despite not physically receiving my new card for several days). But it sounds like you had bad timing where Amazon attempted to charge it in the brief window in between your two cards. That sucks. It sounds like you're willing to pay a little bit more for the set since you offered to cover the shipping and also provide bonus stuff. If that's the case, why not just pay a bit more for the scalper prices on ebay? I see some going for an extra $40. That's not ideal, but I'll bet the prices will come down a bit if you wait some more as well. This boxset is brand new so the prices are high now and if you wait until it's more prevalent in the wild, it should come down. Or maybe even Amazon will change course and (re)allow shipping to the UK again after a while. Edit: Now I see that you already did address Ebay as an option. I would still say wait until the prices come down. Or maybe you'll find it for sale locally or on another website that will ship to UK.
  10. Noice! I'm excited for mine to (eventually) arrive. I'm definitely putting one of my Wolverines with this team. Lord knows Hasbro gave us enough Wolverines to go around on every team. And then when Wild Child comes, he goes with Alpha Flight too, which is why I was pretty excited and surprised they are making Wild Child. Still need Box and a bigger Sasquatch (I will continue to harp on it in the hopes that Hasbro listens!). I also noticed that this boxset is back in stock now on Amazon for anyone who missed it.
  11. I don't think the email is lying because I'm starting to see photos and videos of the boxset on the internet already. I just checked my order though and mine still says expected delivery Dec. 6-11. But it could come sooner, you never know.
  12. My credit card got charged for this boxset this morning. I wonder if that means it’s shipping soon. I wasn’t even expecting it and initially thought some scammer had stolen my credit card info. It doesn’t show as shipped yet though.
  13. Me too, but unfortunately the Diamond Select people have been asked a few times in the past and they always respond that they have no plans to make Sasquatch. My Legends BAF also had loose joints, specifically the ankles so he would topple over and take other guys with him. I gave them the floor polish treatment and now it's better.
  14. I've contemplated that idea and hoped for that to happen. I'd love for Marvel Select to make a bigger Sasquatch. Hasbro makes better sculpts in my opinion, so obviously I'd prefer a Hasbro-made Marvel Legends Sasquatch, but I would take a bigger one made by anyone, including Select. But I doubt that's ever going to happen either. Oh well.
  15. I'm surprised and excited they're releasing a Wild Child figure! I'm a fan (even though he always kinda reminded me of Iggy Pop). It's surprising news but very much welcomed by me. That gives me hope that we could get a Box figure too. (I'm still waiting but not optimistic we'll ever get a bigger Sasquatch.)
  16. I pre-ordered on Amazon when it was released, but this boxset is now missing from Amazon. Usually, if it's sold out, the link is still available and it says currently sold out. This time, the link has been removed and it says page not found. No sure if it means anything. Anyway, if it sold out, I'm surprised as I didn't think Alpha Flight would be that popular and other, more popular characters didn't seem to sell out on Amazon like the pre-orders for Magneto/Quicksilver/Scarlet Witch or Colossus/Juggernaut sets.
  17. As another scale zealot (sounds better than scale Nazi), this was one of the first things I looked up when I saw the new Warpath was on the Omega Red buck. I don't have Omega Red myself so I had to check the internet for comparison shots. The first comparison shot makes Omega Red look fairly short compared with Colossus, but in the second one, they look closer. And Omega Red might be slightly broader than Colossus across the shoulders.
  18. Yeah, I agree the old Warpath still holds up pretty well. The only thing bothersome is the ugly ball joint hips. But I have to say that he looks better in person than he photographs (I've noticed this with several other figures where for some reason, they just don't look that good in photos, but in person they look better. The TRU Warpath is that way). Yes, the Wrecking Crew was the same buck except with better hip joints, so that would have been a good choice.
  19. Yes, 7'2" for Warpath and 7'5" for Colossus was what I found too, so that means they are almost the same height with Warpath being a tiny bit shorter. So then the TRU exclusive Warpath is the correct size, not too big. As far as I know, the first Colossus buck is the same size as the recent Colossus if we're referring to the same figures (Warlock wave Colossus and 80th Anniversary Colossus).
  20. I'd like a new comic Ronan too. Then we'd have almost all the Annihilators! I never even read that comic (too recent for me), but looking at the members, who can beat that team? But how about The Champion!! An homage to the Thing in the Marvel Two-In-One classic. I doubt The Champion is the BAF but I do hope Hasbro brings him to us some time. I was surprised when they made a 3.75 version of him (as Championpool), so he is on their radar. I would think a Legends version of him would be similar in size to the new Hulk and Juggernaut, but not as wide, like maybe the size of the Legends Sasquatch BAF (who is way too small for that character!).
  21. That's news to me that Warpath was shown as taller than Colossus. I originally thought the TRU Warpath, which I overpaid to get, was too big, but then I looked it up and saw he should be close to Colossus' height but slightly shorter, so then I was fine with the size of that figure.
  22. Hellll yes, I wasn't expecting a release of such exciting major characters for NYCC. I thought we were past the big announcements for the year and we might get a few repaints and a few obscure characters. But Warpath?? Definitely a must-get for me. But yeah, that looks more like Thunderbird. The Fantastic Four is cool but I prefer the classic outfits. I do like the new Thing's head better though, with the more prominent brow and jaw. I like Sunspot as a character but I'm not sure about this figure. Similar to the recent Cannonball -- I like the character but unsure about the figure. I guess Sunspot is hard to depict as a figure though since he's just all black. Blue Deadpool? Maybe.
