  1. Guess I gotta be on my toes tomorrow to pre-order that Mojo pack, I don't want to miss out on Longshot and Mojo, also Firelord , I gotta laugh, what was so hush hush about an MCU Sharon Carter that we couldn't have seen it months ago? not like any spoilers there, it looks pretty good though, but I wish we saw a updated Comic Sharon, Please Hasbro Mandarin better be coming on that Iron Man retro card back this year, contemplating getting that Sentinel just to have a representation of a Sentinel on my shelf despite it's barely existence articulation.

  2. I am pretty hyped we are finally getting a Longshot and new Mojo, and will be getting that pack, I just wish that it didn't come with Dazzler, and Spiral or Quark was in that pack, I don't care about a new Dazzler at this point. I know everyone is stoked about Japanease Spider-Man and Bag-Man, but those are easy passes for me, Firelord is a great figure though and I will be grabbing that. War Machine is just a less exciting re-paint, that's an easy pass, but I'm pumped to see what they do with those beautiful Iron Man retro cards in the future, Ha I realized first watch I missed that Sharon Carter..yeah maybe, you could barely see her.

    Full panel coverage and images are at the top of the thread. Should hopefully have better PR images soon. Getting good images of Instagram videos is a pain in the ass.

    Yeah was pretty darn annoying that they never zoomed in on any of the figures, so we only saw things from a sizable distance, was pretty bad camera work.

     

  4. Yeah Armadillo was a pleasant surprise when he was revealed as the BAF for this wave, I knew I instantly had to build him, and for me that says a ton because I try to make sure I only buy whole waves 1-3 times a year for a BAF's sake, Armadillo was one I knew I had to choke up and buy the figures I didn't need to build him so I could safely get him, and he's amazing, only reason why anyone should be on the fence about putting this guy together is because they don't even know who he is, but with even that being a factor this figure looks great, articulates really nicely for a hefty guy and look super accurate for his more recent renditions in the comic, but is classic enough works for any iteration, BAF's like this are why I still love Marvel Legends, because we get cool stuff that really makes you think that Hasbro's crew love the collector, never would I have thought we'd have an Armadillo BAF.

  5. The more I see this figure the more I think of how easy it would be to kitbash some parts to just make Astonishing Wolverine, just take off those shoulder pads, put some blue ones on (from some other recent wolverine) and switch out those hot claws, I'm sure tons of people will do this. I just don't know why they did this how claws flash in the pan look first, should have just done Astonishing Wolverine, because people seem to want it, I know I don't care either way. I don't want to buy more Wolverines if I don't have to. I wish I had less Wolverines at this point.

  6. I really do think this is a very fun figure, Bonebreaker is a wild character, I do think everything going on here is pretty cool, but I just hate the mad baby face, I think if this had a different head I'd be more compelled, but I also don't want to have to buy figures I don't need just to get this guy, because he's not that important to me, with the prices of figures now I feel like I can't just be spending like 80+ bucks for figures I can't get rid of to obtain BAF peices, I'll wait to see if eventually anyone wants to trade me for the parts I don't have, or an eventual sale happens.

    but the overall composition of this figure is nice, I'm digging it, but not quite enough.

    I have actually made that argument with myself that while there aren’t any great Avengers v Ulik stories, he is one of THOR’s big bads and that inner battle is why he is on pre-order haha

    But if Hasbro wants to throw in the occasional Count Nefaria, Graviton, Executioner... there would be no hesitation!!

    Yeah I think that he's pretty important in an Avengers Display, you can have all the heroes but I think you should at least have 1-3 baddies for each respective hero on the shelf or whats the fun in that, it's also fairly easy to build up classic avengers villains since in reality we don't have to many especially if you just count the substantial ones. I really hope Hasbro keeps on with the Bad Guys waves, there are still so many characters we need, that it blows my mind we don't have yet.

    Well if this forum is any guide, Box is certainly very popular and very requested. He's not a fave of mine but I hope he gets done soon. A smart move would be to make him a 2 pack with Marrina. If they do him correctly, and make her look as good as this Air- Walker fella did, it'll go fast on Amazon. 

    Yeah perfect Idea Box x Marrina 2 pack, I put my vote in on that.

    Its been almost 5 years since the release of the Alpha Flight box set and we've not seen any sign of Marrina being produced (or Rachel Phoenix that should've been in the Excalibur set). Definitely should have used her instead of Vindicator II, but it is what it is. This is a wonderful custom; it looks like its right off the page and that's what any fan should want. 

    Its also a great base for a Namorita figure. Outstanding! Great work!

    Yeah it has been almost that long since the AF box set, which I guess does make you wonder if they ever planning on giving us the final characters needed for that team, I am still holding hope we won't be let down, I don't need every AF member, but we at least need Marrina to fill out the main OG ranks, Box would really make me happy as well though, I have higher hopes we will see Racheal for our Excalibur team coming sooner then Marrina.

    and yes I do agree if they did that Box set right, it should have been Marrina over Vindicator because that would have closed off the classic line up, but Hasbro does Hasbro, Vindicators colors don't even match Guardians..sigh

    but hey I'm still waiting on Generation X, and we still need so many for the Serpent Society. and we don't even have to get into the obvious holes in X-Force and Factor.

    Nice. I have one on pre-order but can’t say I’m anxiously awaiting his arrival. In the time since I pre-ordered there was another price hike so I have already decided it’s back to strictly MCU and comic Avengers for me. 

    Guess we will see, wouldn’t be the first time a figure I had not intended to keep charmed itself into my collection 

    Yeah hey I'd say you will find this guy charming in hand, I really like it, also it's really great to get a nice Thor villain, at least if you collect comic avengers and you have a Thor you should have  Ulik, don't the classic Villains count? I'd say he's a pretty great addition to a classic display, with so few Thor villains out he's like one of the top dogs, but I'm not sure how big of a seller this guy is going to be so maybe wait on a price decrease but who knows.

    Its a damn hefty figure, but what I love most is that its comic book accurate. None of this "we'll make Tigra, but she's gonna have an orange paint job that can be seen from the space station" nonsense. "Want Dormammu? Here you go, we'll show you a rendition that looks exactly the way it should, but the actual figure's head will be just one big blob of red-orange 'flame'. HAHA!"  And don't get me started on classic Dr. Strange. Haven't had a Legends of this in almost 20 years, and then they turn in something where the emblem is blotted out by the rest of the tunic and they glue the cloak on, which they never did before.

    Titanium Man is straight from the books, looks incredible, and scales perfectly with 6" Iron Man. Not sure Hasbro would've done this right. Even if they did, they'd try to charge $50.00 or so.....this one is $27.00. No BAF; don't have to buy figures I may not really want just to assemble him. 

    Yeah it's a good Win for DST with this figure, as you stated it's pretty much flawless with it's accuracy, and DST don't slouch in the quality department in general, if it's anything like say Abomination select, that guy is a massive chunk of hardcore plastic for a really fair price.

    Titanium Man arrived today, this is my first Select, and its great. Didn't have to gamble with the if/when of Legends making it, possibility of sloppy and incorrect alterations, or insanely jacked -up price. Lack of double jointed elbows/knees didn't bother me near as much as I thought it would. For some reason, I thought he had a clear screen over the face shield; he doesn't. Regardless, he looks perfect next to Iron Man!

    Yeah The Titanium man Select is certainly a case of a figure done very nicely, it works with legends as well in terms of Scale, sure it's not full of articulation but does a giant titanium clad guy need much, I'd imagine he's pretty clunky. I'm actually surprised that Hasbro hasn't done a Titanium man like this, but even then I'm not sure they'd do a better job then DST.
