  1. Hahaha love that Hasbro was tweeting about the fans lowering expectations, I mean that could be we should, or they want to throw us off, and they are going to blow our minds, I don't really know what I think they will show, but at least bet a sort of re-cap of what has currently been released, I'd be surprised if we didn't see a fancy roll out for what to expect for the 20th Anniversary Program, with a few figures getting seen, who knows maybe a tease or two for some new D+ Stuff like Hawkeye and Kate, I have a strange feeling we might get more talking then actual reveals, since it seems a bunch of interviews are lined up and so forth.

    I am so glad she called Hasbro out on this. They crapped this thing out, it doesn't look like her in any way.  Not only did they get the face wrong, they really got the body wrong ( and that seems to have been on purpose). We have people here on the forum who are "fine" with her deflated chest ; in some warped mindset, they think this the way to not "oversexualize" female characters. Because somehow a larger bosom is "wrong" or "hypersexualized" (and its Hasbro's job to combat this), or its not "appropriate" in comics or action figures. The arrogance. 

    The Jessica Jones figure, face and body, is an almost dead-on likeness for Krysten Ritter. But you cannot use that body for a woman like Salma Hayek, anymore than you would use the Everett Ross body for Favreau. 

    Its ridiculous, and its hypocritical, because not only did they get Jon Favreau's face correct for the Happy Hogan figure, they made a bigger body for him and everyone loved it!

    In other words they attempted to make the figure as accurate to the subject as they could.  Jon Favreau is a big, stocky dude. Salma Hayek is a busty woman. Any drawing, model sculpture, or action figure should reflect this.  I can certainly understand that getting real life faces is tricky and its not always going to land. But they can certainly get bodies better, they certainly could get the comic versions better. Instead of crapping out the same preteen mold they use far, far too much.

     

    I think the strangest part of all of this, toning down the sexuality of the figure, and toning down Salma's breasts is....um so why does Angelina Jolie's figure have a huge chest?? almost comical in size??

    no sense made.

    My Reed Richards showed up on my doorstep with a nice surprise when I opened my front door! Something jumped me and I was jumping around to get whatever it was off. I don't know what it was but a nice start for my morning. Reed came from Dorkside Toys.

    Wow I loved this

    Part of the reason for this release is that Spider-Man's on-screen suit has been tweaked, with most notably the belt area being different. I don't see this figure as a re-release as much as its own release meant reflect the changes in the movie. I mean, they still should have painted the weblines, but just throwing that thought out there.

    Yeah I fully see the tweaks/fixes , just find it a strange one to re-release, tons of MCU figs need fixes (we all know why), but I don't see Hasbro really going back and mulligan'ing much, I guess it is nice for those super Die hard MCU collectors, but it just seems like the tweaks on this figure are so minor you gotta be an eagle eye to notice them.

    Not too bad for the people who missed the first one, but still should have been a lot better. A pass

    still scratching my head on this one.

    People missed this? was my thought, the first one was heating pegs up all over the town, not sure why they decided to re-do this one, it has a few minor tweaks but I could hardly imagine people screaming from the roof tops "we need that spider-man again", they also re-released this previously in the UK best of  wave for whatever year that was. I also think hey you wanted to make this figure "better" why don't you paint some weblines and stop making your MCU Spider-Men figures look like basic figures hasbro, why can't you paint weblines? seen you do it before.

    Bro....I literally just told me wife the exact same thing just now, lol. Yeah, this is really the only time I didn't like a casting choice. I both expected and much preferred an actor who looked....well, a lot more impressive looking. 

    Yeah funny enough like a few moments ago my GF made the same comments Ha!, and she said did you hear the guy from Midsommar and Maze Runner with that funny face is Adam Warlock, she was mad, seems like it's a universal thing you either love this kid or not, but hey I'm still respecting Marvel for their decision they have not let me down yet, but I have not been so astonished with how much out the gate I don't like a casting decision they made, Adam Warlock is supposed to be a engineered perfect specimen and is a serious character, should have had Zac Efron (which that pic up in the top is rendered off of, it seems) as him, at least that would have made sense, but whatever I will reserve the full judgement for when I actually see the performance. 

  7. Probably the weirdo here, my main priorities are the Ladies, mainly comic, but if a good stand in or just a nice looking figure comes along that gets a buy as well, secondly Symbiotes. I of course collect the other stuff which is anything I like to see on a shelf MCU or Comic but MCU gets a huge back seat, it's comic over movie everyday for me, I of course desire mainly overall the classic looks.

  8. I believe the reason behind Walgreens dropping the ball so heavily with the recent exclusives boils down to the man initially behind acquiring the exclusive agreement with Hasbro for the Legends, Steve Anne, he was the toy buyer for Walgreens, he was the major catalyst with the exclusives and the push for more collectibles in Walgreens, well... sadly he left Walgreens in the end of 2019 (rough estimate), he was the lifeblood of the whole partnership with him gone it's sorta just the company clinging on to a past commitment that sadly not every store has to abide by, Walgreens stores in general like many only stock what the manager of the store desires, so if said manager says...well nobody buys this Namor and Whirlwind for 5 years, don't bother getting that crap in, back in the beginning of the exclusives to Walgreens they were being considered hot selling items, but don't blame Joe namelessman for not wanting to stock a bunch of figures after he can't sell any, and nobody is forcing him.

    but yes I think they shouldn't necessarily be Gamestop exclusives in the US, they should just be someone else's exclusives , anyone for the US's sake.

    in Canada they already are EB/Gamestop exclusives so that's a moot point here for me.

  9. Great fun looking figure, very happy to be getting this soon, I passed on the previous modern take, it just wasn't the right Herc for me, so I'm glad they revisited him so soon after with this classic look, it's goofy and that's how it should be honestly I always thought he was a corny character in general personality and looks, and this captures that vibe perfectly.
