  1. That would be great. Doc Samson needs a re-do....but what I'd really love to see is if they dare to do the 80's red suit and pony tail version.
  2. I try not to predict what this team will or won't do with these figures; I mean who on earth thought their "classic" Luke Cage would turn out the way it did? Nevertheless, I have a strong hunch that there will soon be a TRULY classic 2 pack coming, this time with Iron Fist in the classic collar ending in a "v", maybe a darker green to his outfit, and Powerman with the blue or darker blue leggings, an ab crunch, and boot swivel. Maybe even on a larger frame this time. Like I say I don't like to predict but its such an iconic set, and the duo is like 80% there already. Can't see the Legends team passing this up. Then again I thought for sure classic Ms. Marvel was coming, once that Rogue with the scarf came out. What would also be cool is the inclusion of the special effect Iron Fist always had in the comics. The almost flame-like, swirling, "energy" trail Gil Kane used (invented?) a lot in his art. If Kirby had the Kirby Crackle, then I'd call this the Kane Trail. SH-KOW!!
  3. Good figure, good review; the lighter lavender color brings out the dark shapes for the eyes and the lower front of the mask better than the previous version. In the comics they used light gray, instead of lavender, but as time went on that changed to lavender/purple. The animated series used the shade here. 5:52 From the comics, he usually did have that shape on the mask. It seemed sometimes to me it was a distinctive shape, other times a product of trying to convey shadow.
  4. Right! I agree, good figure, but should have stayed with the previous mold. Also its good that while the thigh boots now have a seam or lip instead of just being painted on, they should have made them like the boots used for the Extremis Armor. That would eliminate the thigh cut, but still give decent articulation.
  5. I had very high hopes for that Taboo series....and quickly fizzled out due to exactly what you said: mechs and cyborgs. An incoherent mess that spent 0 time exploring the supernatural aspect of Werewolves, and instead wound up looking some very bad 80s cartoon series. But "hot garbage" is a better way of putting it.
  6. Hopefully with an Odin re-do, they'll show some other Asgardian love to Warriors Three and classic Beta Ray Bill..... Wow, well put....I echo what you're saying about them not tapping that deep well that they have. I'm still waiting for Red Wolf, some Golden Age characters (oooh, just hit me- with the new Angel wings, they can now do a decent Red Raven). In addition to doing the characters though I really want them done accurately.
  7. Great figure. Gonna likely pass on this though. I got the Titanium Man because he scales near perfectly with 6" Legends Iron Man figures; hasbo hasnt done a classic version and who knows if they ever will. As a BAF it would likely be too short, as a Deluxe it would be overpriced. Crimson Dynamo is another thing though. Still...great figure, and I love the accessories!
  8. I echo your sentiments about it taking this long. Its regrettable they did away with the classic point "v" for Iron Fist, 'cause it just looks "off" this way, but pairing him with the modern Cage makes me think they could do another 2 pack down the road. This time with Cage in his classic 70s look (actual ab crunch this time, no exposed armpits, etc) and Iron Fist with his 70s, Byrne era, darker, iridescent/ glossier green and this time with the classic cut (they did it for Namor's walgreens outing). Hate getting my hopes up but they said "85yrs anniversary" more than a few times, so....there are a lot of figures they can pull from with an 85 year bench. Who knows, they may just do that Misty Knight/Colleen Wing 2 pack in the near future....
  9. I hear you because like you say, we're talking 10, almost 20 years in some cases and still they're not using more of the Marvel pantheon, if you will. We still don't have Ms. Marvel, or the Warriors Three, and don't get me started on the number of teams they still need to finish. But then they do something like Crystar....so...you never know...
  10. WELL....Iron Fist it is. And looks like they didn't cheat him of ab articulation and what not. Looks great...Looks like they got it right....but then there's the collar. They say this is classic Iron Fist. Well his collar deal ended in a point, its all a nice "V" shape, much like Sub-Mariner's 70s outfit or the Falcon's. Not this. Now, I'm sure if somebody looks around especially for more modern (90s etc) pictures, they might find this "open" thing. Still, its a 2pack so there's a chance a correct version can appear, along with an improved correct classic Cage.
  11. Unlike a lot of fans, I'm not one to automatically link Power Man with Iron Fist; I know their team up has been a long standing thing. So it doesn't necessarily mean that a Luke Cage figure has to be followed up by an Iron Fist one, but from this list that may be happening. I just hope they don't do to him what they did to Luke Cage (eliminating torso movement, ab crunch, calf swivel etc). I couldn't bring myself to buy that figure. Wouldn't be able to get this one if they did the same. But nice to the name in the list!
  12. I'd like them to re-issue the Hellfire Club set. I got one but not everyone was able to. Sure would be nice for fans who missed out.
  13. TRUTH! I cannot understand why there's so little emphasis on Captain America (I could add Thor & Daredevil to that as well) in the line. Not only does Cap have enough of a bench for his own waves, he's the perfect vehicle for peppering in Serpent Squad/Society figures; most of all, GOLDEN AGE figures (which really should have been done during the "80th Anniversary" theme). -Captain America (pinless, metallic sheen on the chain mail, metallic sheen on the shield) -Classic Falcon (70s) with Redwing (articulated wings) -Nomad ('70s) -Bucky (WWII) -Viper/Madame Hydra (use correct body this time, alt head/face with scar) -Moonstone (original guy, never been done) -Deadly Nightshade (70s era outfit) -Diamondback
  14. Agree, it can be done right and Mezco pretty much demonstrates this regularly. I'd say the hasbo team hasn't put in the effort to learn, even though they've been doing Legends for well over a decade now. I don't think most collectors are expecting or even want Mezco-level soft goods, but capes and long coats should be something hasbo could do, if they wanted. This lab coat would've been good for that. Throw in a pocket protector for extra points....
