  1. Thats what I said, it makes no sense. And notice they kept her on those spindly legs. You just gotta wonder WHAT is going thru their minds when they do these things. They could've taken the Phoenix face, which is very thin and drawn, modified it and then used their standard female teen body they seem to use for every female character, and it would've looked much closer to the classic Calisto. At any rate this isn't for me, pass. Make her the way she's supposed to be and I'll consider it.
  2. I was never a fan of She-Hulk in the first place, but I could see where she grew on people (no pun intended). The 'roided out version made no sense to me, and the notion that Thor would be attracted to her that way, just made it less so. And so forced, so fake...but oh how I lament what's become of the Asgardian Avenger these past years. Bah, that's another story. I do hope this version of She-Hulk is made; they can use the current mold, just give her a better face. I'll buy it.
  3. Won't it be funny if they do the exact opposite (although I too would like a bit of a break if means they're going to improve the consistency of quality).
  4. Thanks for posting this....a good honest review. Anything you're expected to wear (hat/glove/boot/belt/cape/mask etc) that causes physical pain or bruising, is a no sale. Unless they put a disclaimer on the package such as "for toddlers only" or some such, I'm surprised they let this thing thru. It looks nice, sure, but what's the point of a gauntlet if you can't wear it, and what's the point of THIS gauntlet if you can't snap the fingers?
  5. Well... seeing how Halloween is next week and we haven't seen any kind of announcement for my Marvel Monsters box set idea, sadly it looks like yet another year passes without getting these. Too bad. I still say its something they should move on. ☹️
  6. I plainly said that getting faces can be tricky and its not always going to work. If you're just going to ignore what I'm saying to bolster your point you're not being honest. Mucking up the face and tossing it on the wrong body- when you yourself stated they got Jolie's correct- just doesn't make sense. So yeah it seems intentional. I'm gonna say it again, its about accuracy. If they can get make a face for Favreau and then make a new body mold for him ( which is great because it can be used for other characters too, like what they're doing for Hammerhead), then they can do it for others, and they should have. This problem is prevalent when it comes to their treatment of a majority f of the female characters, and its totally unnecessary.
  7. 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.
  8. Comic figures all the way. Clearly I love the Avengers, Spider-Man, FF & the X-Men, but I'll be first in line if they ever do the Golden Age heroes, not to mention the 70s, etc. I'd love the original Guardians of the Galaxy. Give me Mantis, Red Wolf, Killraven, Equinox, El Aguila, Nightshade, Moon Dragon, Dr. Spectrum! Obscure comic figures would be fantastic, so yeah, Woodgod, Red Rajah, bring 'em on. The line was always about the comics and yes, the MCU is good too, but we can't forget where it all came from. MAKE MINE MARVEL!
  9. Really, at this point its the only way they'll listen to us. They have the tools and means to make more accurate female figures, they're just choosing not to. It makes no sense because they've really stepped up the female faces. I mean some of these just look way too good to go on these silly bodies. Hasbro doesn't think twice when it comes to making diverse male figures (just look at the new Jon Favreau buck, versus what they did for Salma Hayek). When they notice a sizeable portion of dollars dropping off that they could have had, they'll wise up.
  10. Hasbro Legends, check out how Mar-Vell's hair looks and compare it to the butcher job you did....please re-issue. This time with brighter colors and CORRECT boots. Please and Thank you
  11. Kudos on including pics from all angles. This figure doesn't have legs, it has two tubes. They didn't even try here.
  12. I gotta say, the more the MCU tries to "jazz up" Spider-Man's costume, the more you can see how its just necessary. Nothing replaces the original. This isn't a bad suit, it just doesn't jump out like the comic version black (symbiote) or red-gold Iron Spider does. Far as the figure goes, just what is it with these guys that they can't get Spidey to do a full split?? Modular Iron Man can but Spider-Man can't? Boot cut? Geddouddahere.....
