    You pretty much described the PC crowd. They know who they are. I would hate for them to run an action figure company. We'd have no way of knowing who is what & what is who!

    I would've sworn he described the other side of the PC crowd... complaining and pretending those figures would never get made because of some deal with Disney prohibiting it. What would I know, right? I only read what's written here.

    I agree, we had the whole show to see him in that new Falcon suit, I was kind of hoping we'd get a figure of that too. Maybe that'll be the suit they give Joaquin when he becomes the new Falcon and we'll get a figure then.

    That would suck for me, I really want that Wilson Falcon (not dissing on Torres' Falcon possibility, I'll probably want it too)

    New Tooling costs a lot of money.  You will virtually never see an assortment that's all new characters because the bean counters won't let it happen.

    And bluntly a lot of the characters left would require tooling that might have limited reuse options.  Which is likely a big reason we haven't gotten some if those characters.

    But I don't really feel the line was a let down at all.  Werther's Original Iron Man is the only complete dud for me.  There are a couple others I probably won't get but it's less because I think they're bad figures and more just starting to be more selective in my ML collecting.

    I don't think the line was a let down either, the only figures I'm "passing" on are Mk3 and IW Cap since I already have a version of them that does good enough of a job. The rest are absolutely great IMO, even Midas. My biggest complaint would be Thanos, but the sword and Tony's accessories really help it sell. Rescue is a great upgrade and that Cap Marvel is a figure we still needed. 

    Still, I'd probably pick up IM and Cap if I saw them in the wild one day.

    Yeah in the end we are getting 4 new characters I think? Happy, surtur, monger, Odin. But I don’t begrudge people getting improved or new versions of big name characters, it’s just not for me. I still may end up picking up some of these if they get marked down, probably Odin and surtur are my biggest wants but I can easily live without them, too

    haven’t crunched the numbers but it certainly feels like there were more new characters in the 10th and 80th lines (let alone the Fox movie line) but again not really all that bothered. I would say I want a golden armor Heimdall but we can see how Midas armor iron man turned out so maybe not such a great idea. 

    Ran the numbers. Last time we got 19 (20 if you count sdcc red skull), figures. 8 were fixes or upgrades, 11 were new characters or versions. Of those 11, 7 were brand new characters and 4 were never before done versions of the heroes.

    This time we got 14 figures (so far), 5 are redos or upgrades, 8 are new characters or versions. Of those 9, 6 are new characters. 

    Either way, we got 5 figures less all in all, fixes reduced 2, new characters reduced 2, and a new version of a character was reduced. 

    Talking in %: the first line had 36.8% new characters, this line it's 42.8% for new characters.

    All in all, it's a pretty solid line.

    As for Heimdall, Odin has golden on his armor and looks pretty good IMO, I'm still holding out for that.

    Yep, which is why I don't think they should even try it.  I'm sure they'd be thrilled to sell plastic balls for $100 but, aside from hanging the thing in the corner of a room, where would it even fit into a collection?   And it's just a textured ball with a face on it, right?  Might as well just get out the paper mache and make my own Ego.

    They should totally do it. Give it some LED lighting for the eyes and a way to hang it or display it from the wall. Either way, between the tennis ball and the paper mache... I might have some fun weekends in store

  6. While I'm not as excited for the whole line up as I was with the first one... so far there are only 2 I haven't jumped on, IW Cap and MK3 IM. I already have them in an ok way, and I'm running out of space, other figures have priority. But if I find them... well we'll see.

    The only other one I haven't preordered yet is the Happy set, I don't know where to look for it in Mx. Any of you fellow mexicans know?

    The only one of those that I don't think we'll ever see is Frigga. I could definitely see them giving us perhaps all 3 of the rest of those in the next Infinity Saga wave. My guess would be a single-packed Malekith, Ancient One repacked with Doctor Strange or Mordo, and Killian packed with Tony and another HPP armor.

    I'm almost sure we're getting a Frigga eventually, she did come back for Endgame.
    The AO with Mordo would be amazing, since the original was pretty mediocre in accessories, though we'll probably see him in some way in the sequel. I'd put my money on the AO and Wong, tho.
    Malekith I see him being done singlepack in the same way Red Skull was, with alt heads and weapons for a regular dark elf.

    I'm not an MCU collector, but if the Infinity Saga sub-line continues, I would think the Guardians of the Galaxy characters ought to get more representation. Maybe Ego and Stallone's Stakkar Ogorn and others like that.

    Definitely!! I mean, we did get an Ego way back when. But we still need plenty more GotG figures!! Korath, Kraglin, Howard and Cosmo, Ayesha, and all the older Ravagers.

    Goes without saying, I'm a Vision freak...the MCU version pales (no pun intended) to the classic, but still it wasn't horrible. This "white" version I would think would've looked better because there wouldnt be that much to go wrong with it. Yet I don't care for it; the choice of off-white and yellow really doesnt work for me. 

    That translucent cape looks good, though.

    It goes the opposite for me. I didn't care for it in promo pics... but now... I can't wait to have him

     

  10. I know he's not screen accurate, and I would've probably complained about it 5 years ago, as I did with giAntman. But the way things are right now... he's big enough to fit my displays, looks menacing and cool next to the other figures, and fills a big gap in my collection. A buy from me (if I can find any of these damn sets! So far, I've only gotten preorders for Odin and the Cap/Rescue set)

  11. I have bought full waves I've yet to sell just to get the BAF, it's one of my issues with only MCU collection. I also have BAF pieces that came with MCU figures that I'll never complete, another of my issues. I like getting a free figure with my collection every now and then, but hate chasing it down... in the end, I feel like things are just the way they should be right now, and with the Infinity Collection coming soon, at least I wont have to think about BAFs for a while.

    🤚, definitely
