  1. I think the effect is ok. If it'd been up to me, though, I would have made the hinge sideways, not up and down, since that would've captured the motion better. (Gambit and Ronin would've benefited from this too.)
  2. I'm not sure they need more articulation as much as they "need" more accessories. If I miss something from the ToyBiz days is the display bases, and maybe the paint washes that really made the sculpt pop... but it some were terrible so I don't really miss that. I'd rather we get more alt heads and hands than fingers or removeable helmets, for example. Toe articulation is case sensitive, Spidey characters might need them, but I think that's pretty much it... You know what, changed my mind, some characters do need more articulation, female characters in general need an upgrade desperately to their range of motion, specially in the abdomen.
  3. Agree, some figures need to look better than move. That said, from what I've seen, Kingpin does at least what Kingpin should, and that's what makes it a great action figure.
  4. While I agree completely on wishing for Armor and Rockslide, I understand the appeal the AoA wave has. If I understand the kind of collector you are, I used to be like you: happy to get a version of a new character you like, no matter which costume or era, just the character in 6" format so to place it in your collection. I used to mix comic and MCU figures on my display and it was great. Right now, I'd rather mount specific displays, AoU, Infinity War, Endgame... hence me not minding buying duplicates of certain characters as to display them accordingly... so yeah, I don't need an AoA wave, but I'm sure someone does.
  5. Oh man, just picking 10 is hard!! 10 Nebula Endgame 9 Warriors Three (Gotta have them together, from Dark World to go with that Sif) 8 Korath 7 Wong 6 Misty Knight 5 Iron Fist 4 Kingpin 3 Cosmo 2 Quicksilver 1 Endgame Thor But oh, man... there's so much more that I want from most movies!! Army builders, secondary villains, civilian characters, the House Party... My MCU wishlist is endless. By the way, there were a MkIV and MkV in 6" from IM2, in the same line as MkI War Machine, but were nigh impossible to get.
  6. I haven't played as Cable yet, but the other 3 are so much fun. The only thing I dislike about the game is how grinding it is. Having to play the same levels over and over to gain xp for each of the characters is too much.
  7. I'd like an AoS pack. I think one pack could have Fitz, Coulson and Sitwell in the suit body, and another in a jumpsuit for the females with May, Bobbi and Daisy. Make a female version of the business suit too to add Sharon Carter, Simmons and a jumpsuit for the males with Ward, Trip and Hunter. Wishful thinking all the way.
  8. Yeah, I think that's the problem we're gonna start facing going forward. Marvel Legends has to find a new way to sell new characters without relying to much on the heavy hitters. With the prices going up, and the biggest guns (selling merch) out of the MCU, I can't see people buying multiple times the same character, specially the FF.
  9. I wish they'd pushed for this instead of Dark Phoenix. Granted, I haven't watched it so I won't talk it down, but I wasn't really feeling the trailers. This on the other hand felt fresh.
  10. Glad to see another MCU collector. You pretty much nailed my wishlist too. I'm adding Cosmo, the rest of AoS (particularly Mack, Yo-yo, and Fitz-Simmons), and Netflix Kingpin.
  11. It's funny until you realize that the most powerful country's government doesn't take itself seriously enough. I giggled, but then felt annoyed. Those are the people in power, the ones earning huge amounts of money, and yet they don't take the time to review what they or their departments do before putting it out there. Worst part is that it's happening worldwide.
  12. Guess that depends on how you're defining "classic". Most of that "timelessness" comes from being visually available for a long time, or being the first one. Nonetheless, there are many classics that are goofy or dated, like a classic car. Old but gold, if you may. But far from timeless.
  13. I think what the core problem is is anger management. I mean, most of us are being really civil and understanding. "I may not like this version, but I'm happy to get this other one!" seems to be the general feeling, or "I'm not getting it, but am happy someone is". We're getting so much that some feel it's a problem (for another post), but at the same time we GET TO CHOOSE and I think that's the best thing ever. Nostalgia blindness when buying is what's moving the market right now, we have the funds, we're buying. So much of the current content and products in the market right now are for us. Even places, game bars, comic coffee shops... it's not really a problem, I mean, what a time to be alive! Nostalgia blindness+anger issues is what turns the internet into an ugly place, hating just because it's not the version we wished it were and being offensive... it makes us seem like little children throwing tantrums. It's not really fueling conversation or debate when it's the same statement recycled over and over, it's not even an argument, just an opinion without a source. I wish I knew how some people KNOW how a story is gonna play out just by reading the synopsis for a new series. Or what makes certain movies the worst trash ever. I've asked, but am yet to get an answer.
  14. You're as cliche as Marvel, man. I pretty much just log in to read you complaining about how boring things are at Marvel this days. Your discourse never changes, it's not creative, and it's not based on anything but prejudice since I understand you're not reading contemporary Marvel issues.
  15. Going MCU here: 1. First Avenger Captain America 2. Concept Art Falcon (F&WS) 3. Concept Art Winter Soldier (F&WS) 4. Baron Zemo (F&WS) 5. Agent 13 (CAWS) 6. Alexander Pierce 7. Arnim Zola BAF Arnim Zola AI diorama
  16. Best Newcomer: Executioner- great new sculpt awesome accessories. Great pack as well Remake: Hela- Great accurate update + more accessories than the original, only way it could be better is if it included swords. Re-release: Vibranium Black Panther- it's amazing how much this figure pops up from the display just with a little paint added to an already awesome sculpt. Only category with no contest IMO. Best Villain: Hela- again, compared to the rest of the releases she get's the most out of her packaging. Best Female: Ghost- She's not on the list but she's my favourite female MCU figure of the year. Mostly out of love for the portrayal and how soon we got her figure compared to Yellowjacket. (Voted Valkyrie since she was my runner-up) New Costume: Iron Patriot- I thought I'd buy it just for completion of an eventual Iron Armor display and Thor's head. I thought it wouldn't replace the MK006 War Machine in my action display. Boy, was I blown away when I got it last night. Strong contender for my personal ToY award.
  17. I think we may be experiencing the youth's allegories as a slap in the face because we're older and get it. I may be wrong, but I think that our experience is the very same thing that could be making us feel like they're dumbing down. I mean, it's happened to me talking to my younger siblings about different subjects, and they're not that much younger.
  18. I mean, it's not that way away from Civil War's premise of outlawing super heroes. But it does feel like a fresh take, one for the youths IMO. He's not gonna get it anyway, he's too much 'always right' to accept he's missing out.
  19. Well, that's disappointing. I think you're right. It doesn't make sense, tho. If they could use de IW mold again with the vest and all, they didn't even have to go all the way and pack multiple heads and we would probably buy multiples to have both widows in white and both widows in black/grey.
