  1. The mic is from Dazzler if I'm not mistaken. I guess they're using it since she's shown singing in a karaoke in the trailer.
  2. I think it's cool that we get to see so many different views along the years in entertainment. We get to see how far we've come, and how much we've yet to grow as a civilization, or even just how much we've changed. Not even 10 years ago movies were still making fun of homosexuals and giving gay a negative connotation, is it good it's stopped? I like to think so. In any case, I think it's funny how riled up people get when they see that what they do and how they do it is hurting someone else and are asked to stop. It really does sound like whining to complain about "wokeness showing how the black are oppressed by the white" when the message is easily interpreted as "I'm hurt that you say I can't hurt you anymore". Anyway, who's ready for Loki?
  3. Ursa Major seems like the main reason for IM wave's success because it looks like a kickass figure whether you know the character or not, which brings us to the first point as to why BaFs are such an important factor to Marvel Legends' success and why it wouldn't be a great idea to get rid of them. As to being compelled to buy or not a figure based on what you saw in a movie it's very subjective and relative to each movie and person. You may like the figure but hate the movie (Venom, in my case), ignore the figure but love the movie (T'Chaka in my case), or be ignorant of the characters, watch the movie and want to get them (Guardians of the Galaxy for me, although to be fair I wanted them since the trailer hit.) So far, neither Shang-Chi nor The Eternals have given me much reason to get them, but I wouldn't put it past me to want them after watching the films. Thing is, these are still superhero toys for children. They may be appealing to us adult collectors, but the main market is still kids. That's probably what got me into collecting in the first place, and why I have narrowed to only movie based figures and not comic based ones, being able to get the characters I liked from the movies I watched. I remember wanting every character from the Lost World for example, and hunting for the Lord of the Rings figures. When I finally made the jump to Marvel Legends as a young adult, it was mostly X-men because of my nostalgia of the tv series and videogames. My point is ML needs both comic and movie figures to keep catering to all of us. Whether you buy MCU to get the comic BAF or vice-versa, neither would be available without the other. Comic's wouldn't get Spymaster, we wouldn't get Mantis. Can either survive without the other? I guess Hasbro is testing the waters with the retro lines and the MCU celebration lines, but I doubt we'll see an absolute and definitive divide.
  4. There's plenty more MCU that I want as well! Happy, Odin, Freya, Malekith, Kurse, Ultron Drone, Korath, Kraglin, Cosmo, Whiplash, Chitauri, The Shockers, AoU Hawkeye, and I can keep going!
  5. I'm sure the 3bucks increase isn't because they can make more things and because they can't keep affording the business as is and everything is getting more expensive. On the other hand, you do bring an interesting proposition. I'd be all for getting rid of BaF pieces and just get alt heads and accessories. But I'm not sure it would work business wise since the only way to get us to buy certain figures is by making them have a BaF piece from a figure we want.
  6. Or just, you know... read about it and go "huh, wonder how that's gonna turn out!" Or just ignore it and move on.
  7. Please let it be MCU related. I can't wait to know!!!!
  8. I do! I just... would've preferred a new character. Same with Cap, I love the look... but I love the Falcon outfit from the series that much more... as well with Wanda, a cloak or alt head with red eyes would've put her over the top. The whole wave just feel like "almost" there.
  9. I don't like that Loki... I guess it might grow on me with the show... but... if that "civilian outfit" is what they were going for I'd rather they'd give me a Mobius figure
  10. Firefly, I need to update and complete my Serenity crew. Lord of the Rings, Toy Biz did a great job, but they sorely need an update in 6", I don't want the select versions. Probably impossible, or a one-shot... Independence Day, it's probably the only 90's property from my childhood that isn't on my shelf. Scott Pilgrim, again, probably too limited a selection of characters to make a line... but I'd really like to have a band on my shelf (could even have a Build a Drumkit way of spreading out the instrument) I'd say Community but that would just be civilians, lol. Aliens, Neca is great, but they're not in 1:12, and I'd really like some Colonial Marines. Predator too, again, Neca is great but I want my toys to play nicely together. Uncharted, limited selection, but it would be awesome to have some Drake and Sully figures in 1:12. I'd love to complete my MK ninjas from MK9, made by an affordable line.
  11. Well yeah, but... it's been a long year waiting for anything! I mean, last year MCU got Black Widow and that's it! I want to know where my money's going! LOL
  12. They better show what Infinity Saga figures we're getting. I'm sick of this drought
  13. I wonder if this is gonna be one of those "wooo! Morris with Katy accessory!" situation. I'm not entirely sold yet... but it looks fitting with the rest of the line.
  14. I'm not sure they qualify as pre-MCU, but since they're kinda disregarded and ignored, I'd like to get Cloak and Dagger and the Runaways, and some of the main cast of Agents of Shield and Robbie Reyes. From everything else, I'm ok waiting until the MCU does them.
  15. When the rumors for the Eye of Agamotto came up I told my girlfriend that I was getting it. She smiled and said "well, yeah. I mean, you already have 2 other stones, Thanos" referring to the Teseract from the SDCC Red Skull and the Orb from the Phase Two boxset. Should I marry her now or yesterday?
  16. If it isn't Galactus I'd be surprised. I don't think there's enough demand for a fantasticar... Maybe a Baxter Building Diorama? But why all the cosmic stuff?
  17. Well, I'm glad about that Endgame Thor... but I was hoping to see more from the MCU honestly... it's been a really long dryspell and it's getting annoying
