  1. Yeah as far as sheer volume of the collection, for Iron Man, Comicave seems spot on, other than Hot Toys, I don't think any other license has done what they've done. But shelf space can be a deal breaker...haha Were all Selects, the ones having articulation, 7in and under? Maybe its just me, but I could've sworn some towered over others in height. I'm with you, I have retail shops, more on everyday products and not specified toy shops, within a few hours drive, but even when Toys R Us was still around, the selection, at least for me was always limited, be it I'd search for figures maybe twice a month back when I started collecting. I've fallen on having to order online which takes the fun out of adding to my collection. Thats why I've reduced my Legends collection to just MCU. Once I'm caught up with the Cinematic Universe, or close to it, I'll try displays and dioramas, enter contests online. Gotta up my game on accessories and props.
  2. I'm not all-in with ToyBiz, but sticking with the coat...no matter the pliability of the plastic on the new one, it just not as versatile as if it were an actual fabric. If you can finagle some wiring through the TB Gambit, dramatic poses a plenty. His stature wasn't ideal, but with many figures, unless they are vanilla posed like a police lineup, they work just fine. I mean I'll end up getting the Hasbro just to maintain uniformity, but...maybe it has some sentimental value being my second ML..I think. haha My Pleather one started cracking. I think I'd want to customize it to get an actual fabric on the new one though.
  3. Rounding out the Jim Lee/90s cartoon on the X-Men for me...but there's just something ToyBiz did with Gambit and Beast that I don't know if there's a clear winner between then and Hasbro now. Where that Ororo Munroe tho?! And Nightcrawler...
  4. YES LORD!!! I mean much love to Kurt Vonner and his suit, but its a bit dated, and I would love this to round out the epic duo of my beloved 90s cartoon if only they released a modular amor one like ToyBiz did for him and Iron Man.

    Aren't my cup of tea, but its nice Hasbro shelling out more obscure characters...at least to me anyways.
  6. So much versatility with these time/alternate reality jumps. Young Avengers/Next would be DOPE since a number of current Avengers/actors are "hanging up their capes" so to speak, so next money makers lie with the next marvel team-ups... So a Kate Bishop seems valid enough, but when's that teaser trailer for that final harrowing of the Avengers/Thanos at?!
  7. I know that price and quality is something that varies with the numerous figure lines in circulation, be it the Universe line, Legends, or other collectible waves. Hot Toys is just way out of my price range, and even if they weren't the scaling for 6in or close to, have so much more favoritism in the ways of dioramas and displays. But I've always known Selects to be pretty notable for accessories, more so the bases/dioramas that have previously, not sure as of now because I don't collect them, accompanied the figures. I was just hoping that Selects would step up their game as Legends have, the line separating the two is starting to blur, and the only thing Select has going for it is, or had been body models are unique and paint application, but with the facial-scan printing Hasbro conjured up is superb, and as far as accessories go, although mediocre repaints on average as well as base-bodies for characters are reused more often than not, Legends are holding their own for cost and plentiful character choices increase the odds. But back to FiguArts, I'd rather not delve into those due to sizing, they just don't work in comparison to Legends, with Selects at least they can be hit or miss with some, but Japanese figures normally come just under the height requirement for it to be uniform for collections of various teams and such for collectors as myself, not to mention the pricing due to shipping internationally. I do unfortunately have an Iron Spider that was gifted to me from my brother, which I clearly hinted at Mafex for the MCU Spiders because I don't like the Marvel Legends build, although Homemade Spidey seems okay. But seeing as how my brother's currently in Japan, I might have to grab some international figures just cuz shipping won't be such a pain. If not, customizers are always a route to go, even though pricing might be steep. I would however like the Select Hulkbuster that recently came out, just wish he had alternate hands, for the Hall of Armor. But if you were speaking on getting the SHF MK L, I might get that one as well.
  8. Professor X is a must, obviously...Deadpool maybe, even though not a huge fan...at least not of the many figures he's been allotted.
  9. Kinda loving the Hulkbuster though...alternate head maybe, a helmeted IronMan perhaps?
  10. I'm a bit underwhelmed on the alternate hands/accessories, I don't recall that chunky looking arm device in the movie, I wish they would've included like the more favorable ones, the projectile launcher would've been great, the battering rams, the shield too, and the better nano hand blade. Just a few pieces that would've made me reconsider buying this, but I think I'll pass on this one.
  11. My brother was thinking of Mezco BP, but will definitely have to suggest this one. I wondered how well the head would do for the Legends BP... that small touch of eyes shown on one of the masked head if astounding, its the little things that count.
  12. Spectacular, when companies give back to its supporters...a truly amazing thing.
  13. I'm not even trying for the waves, can I just get a variant Psylocke and a Bishop please?! haha
  14. I guess Marvelous hasn't gotten word of the upcoming Marvel Legends Infamous Iron Man and I think Emma Frost or something...leaked thanks to Walgreens, can't rely on them for on-the-spot available figures but we can get leaked info now and then...
