  1. I have been eagerly anticipating this Magik exclusive, since reading Battle of the Atom this summer, my first exposure to her as a character. I have considered this a must purchase, but I have concerns on accessibility. In my region's Walgreens I have seen no surfers or Things, though I have picked up a Thing via business travels. I certainly hope Magik is a different story regionally (as I do Mystique when she finally starts rolling out).
  2. Holy cow, I am all in on that X-Men wave w/ that Beast announcement and reveal!!! I was hesitant, only really interested in Jubilee and Weapon X...but liking the others. Beast seals the deal though. Everyone, no matter their tastes, has to love at least 3 of these and be satisfied w/ the rest. Definitely a full case purchase, just like w/ the Apocalypse wave! Great work Hasbro, just kudos to you.
  3. Oh americamgl, I am definitely getting the comic three pack with the Witch QS and Magneto too...but I really want another chance at the MCU 2 pack to have that scene btwn them and Thanos at the end of Infinity War in Wakanda on my shelf. The classic Cision is a gorgeous figure too. I am tempted by that one, though have tried to adhere to some rules on what Legends I purchase (started as an MCU only guy, then grew into X-Men, and now am considering expansion to core comics Avengers...so I guess classic comic Vision would be ok?!)
  4. The REAL question is this: will Amazon get any leftover MCU Scarlet Witch and Vision 2-packs?! Now THAT is something that I'd drop a 45 spot for w/o a 2nd thought, considering the post bankruptcy scarcity.
  5. I agree with everyone here who essentially label this mold as 'cartoony'. That is exactly what it is, and while I do own a Marvel Universe one, that is simply because I found it at extreme discount. I do feel that DOFP Wolverine is excellent, but not incentive enough to shell out 100 bucks for this Sentinel mold. Wish they would do a Red Onslaught in this scale from AXIS...I might pay $100 for that, w/ the AXIS Iron Man or Magneto included.
  6. I tend to agree with the premise of a false demand, however Amazon may legitimately be suffering from some sort of post TRU warehouse liquidation distribution reflective of the well known TRU distribution problems over the past 20ish years before they finally imploded. That is l, they could be getting them in trickle like waves of deliveries, because just like TRU warehouses sucking at filling their old stores, they can't get them to Amazon distro centers in reasonable numbers. Neither false demand or legacy TRU associated distribution would surprise me.
  7. Yet again Marvelousnews does it's part to incentivize community, which is genuine and awesome in terms of the reward they provide to the lucky ones. With so much Marvel Legends product alone, between the MCU 10th Anny and regular waves, it is truly a blessing for those selected!
  8. I am excited to see this, and will be there on opening weekend. I thought the younger mutants in Apocalypse were what made that movie decent despite the MCU purists claims to the contrary....well, the young mutants with the always show stealing Fassbender Magneto and Quicksilver scenes! I like Sophie Turner as Jean, who I always interpret as over serious and as acting beyond her years in comics, which is I think what Turner has delivered. Seems like Chastain is gonna represent some element of a Shiar like entity in this...excited to watch it, but I really hope it leaves no dangling chads that Disneys ownership is going to forever leave open ended!
  9. Marvelousnews is awesome for offering these opportunities! As someone ekse mentioned, I have yet to see most of these thanks to American retailers' distribution schema (I no longer blame Hasbro, its gotta be careless Toy Dept managers). Anyhow, I am dying for that Deadpool wave. I have seen all but one of the Venom wave in person recently, and it looks good. The packaging for that wave truly does make it stand out. As for the SP//DR wave, there are some soon to be classic Legends in there methinks. Bottom Line: Hasbro is nailing it since mid 2017, and I am excited for how the rest of 2019s waves shape up!
  10. Totally agree with FASVB and the reviewer that this outfit is totally worth the purchase, but that a huge specific plus is the Laura unmasked head included, which like everyone else apparently, I intend to place onto my X-23 figure from the previous DP wave. Also, on a related note to the review: Hasbro's QC in these post Infinity War waves seems to have fallen off dramatically...I got a Magneto w/ no unmasked head packed in from HTS. That and paint apps being so poorly applied are going to have some impact on the line if not unchecked going into 2019 and the expected price increases.
  11. Congrats to GojiBill and Gmen4ever! Those are some great waves...enjoy!
  12. I am definitely stoked for the potential of the Fantastic 4 and X-Men (and their respective corps of marquis villains!) to be integrated w/in the MCU. However, I think it is certainly more than fair for reasonable people to air concern regarding the potential monopoly of ideas that this entertainment media merger creates. If you are someone, like me, who feels that the Last Jedi was an abomination of bad story telling, characterization, structure and SJW agenda, then this merger certainly presents concerns for how the stories may be compromised to enable a cultural shaping agenda born of intent to market to wider audiences, all for the sake of more money. Let us keep our fingers crossed that the powers at Disney and Marvel Studios continue to strike the right balance between soirce materials and adaptation as has been seen thus far in the MCU.
  13. Excellent showing by Hasbro for Legends! Definitely going to get Magik, Archangel, Professor in chair (riders series right?) and likely the full next X-wave. It seems like we know Gambit, Blink, the Reaver, Classic Magneto, Mystique, and Quicksilver are coming there...and I've read discussion of 90's Storm. Is that the wave then? And is there any word on the BAF? Or is Chuck's chair not riders related and the 'BAF' here?Also interested in the Genis from the Captain Marvel wave.
  14. I've wanted an MCU Ronan since seeing the first movie and decried the lack of his oresence as the BAF for the associated Legemds wave. In retrospect, I am sooo very happy Hasbro delayed their effort until developing this digital face scan tech...the whole sculpt is a beauty, but they definitely nailed the facial likeness. Definite buy for me.
  15. Thank you for your creative contributions to the modern folk tales of comics Mr. Ditko. Please rest in peace.
