  1. Wow. It looks even more ridiculous every time I see it. Its like the Joker and William DaFoe had a baby or something. If this is supposed to be representing a 6'6" character, the figure should TOWER over the Spider-Man figure, in fact it should be on the same scale as Maggott (6'6"-6'8"). The reviewer nailed it, it doesn't look like any Sabertooth ever made. The costume is wrong, the size, height, width etc. of the figure is just WRONG. I wouldn't have this thing in my collection if they sold it for a dollar. This is just contempt for the fans.
  2. They really do need to do the original team now. Its been wayyyyy too long and these guys have had their shot.
  3. They deserve a stellar box set. Once I was content to have the other Royal Family members done because we already got Black Bolt and Medusa, but both could use an upgrade and besides, they just never got Medusa's hair correct. But we now know, after seeing the likes of Ursa Major, Guenhwyvar and Timber, they can make animal figures, so Lockjaw shouldn't be a problem. It would be a pretty penny but as a one-shot, I think it would be worth getting all 6 + Lockjaw in there.
  4. He probaby figures if Michael Pena and Owen Wilson can have figures, he should too, and while I don't disagree, I really do want to see some hard work getting some of these neglected characters out first. We still don't have any Golden Age figures. Yellowjacket, where is he? A re-do of the farces they tried to pass off as Black Widow and Quicksilver. Gladiator from Daredevil's earlier days. What happened to Blade, or Ms. Marvel? Executioner, Red Wolf, or freakin' WONDER MAN? I'll also add that I think Bruce was wasted in that cameo, because he's got so much more to him than that. But seeing him has made me nostalgic for some Burn Notice....so I'm gonna sign off and go check out some Fiona Glenanne..."should we shoot them?" Oh, honey.... you get me every time with that....
  5. I can see that. Sadly the team doesn't pick the waves the way we collectors would want. I'd love to get the Griffin and/or the Harpy, but the way for that would be BAF, because getting either as a Deluxe (with the prices they now know they can get away with charging), we're looking at $60-80.00. And Marvel Legends just aren't worth that. One other thing, I feel they can do a BAF wave with 4-5 figures instead of the standard 7. Head for one figure, upper/lower torso for another, 2 arms for figure #3, 2 legs for figure#4, wings and tail for the 5th figure. Something like that anyway.
  6. You know what would've been cool, is if they had some clear "glass" or enamel covers over those ports, like they did for Nimrod's chest window.
  7. I understand the note, but its hard to have a discussion about BAFs and Deluxes without touching on price. Many collectors like the idea of getting that BAF because its a "bonus" in that 6-7 figure wave. Otherwise, it gets pretty expensive (and that was back in the day, see how worse it is now). Hasbro hasn't done a classic Titanium Man yet, but if they do, they'll probably go the Deluxe route. And you can be sure they're gonna charge more than the $27.00 Marvel Select did. So getting guys like him as a BAF is a great deal. Also, I agree that guys like Armadillo work best as BAFs vs. Deluxe. Don't see them getting rid of BAFs in favor of Deluxes, though, and bear in mind BAFs don't "have" to be large figures (Ares, Hit Monkey, Mantis, Okoye for example) because Hasbro seems to think that's what moves a wave...personally, if I like the entire wave, then I'll get it whether I'm into the BAF or not. But I've never bought a wave just to get the BAF, even if I really wanted the BAF (Kingpin comes to mind; I passed on it but luckily, they made him later). As for obscure figures, I'm all for them. Legends is an outgrowth of Toybiz and when those came out, they weren't centered around movies or tv, it was the comics. We bought the comics, the figures are driven by us, not the people who liked the movies but never heard of them before 2008. Those obscure figures, particularly when done well like Psycho-Man, Maverick, Puma and YES, Rock Python, really enhance the series...besides, it helps stop over saturation of the other figures. Overall, I agree that BAFs can be the lesser known figures and Deluxe somewhat more high profile.
  8. Hasbro's Marvel Legends Brand Team Attempts To Dance Around The New Non-Plastic Packaging Problem They did indeed try to dance around the issue, but I appreciate that Jay time marked the pertinent spots in the interviews. The team squirmed and tried to be bold by bringing out the company's talking points, but really what else could they do. They know full well they are the faces hasbro has chosen to bolster the feeling the comany wants you to have, that they'e your friend, and really relate to you- Hasbro Pulse Fan Friday, ya'll! But they are easily replaceable, and don't think hasbro doesn't let them know it. The real issue is how this comes on top of collector dissatisfaction, price hikes up the wazoo, selection of characters and then the inaccurate figures you get when the characters are made, etc. Eventually, Legends is gonna take a consumer hit. Then look how long it takes for the figures to appear. That list 27:40 the last interviewer ran off, Xmanny 87? A good chunk of those (with the exception of Mr Negative), if made, won't show up until 2024, 2026. We're talking 6-8 years from now. Some of you reading this are gonna be in your mid-50s -60s by then lol. So they need to get a'crackin'.
  9. Lego means nothing to me, don't care about them....but this looks insanely good. Its beautiful. Hasbro Legends should really look at the prospect of doing playsets like this. The Sanctum, the Baxter Building, the Danger Room, Avengers HQ....
  10. Corporations are not your friends. Have they been treating you like a friend does? Something to think about.....
  11. Nothing could top the original film. Iconic. Nice cover by Larroca.
  12. Its a good figure, but I'm passing because I prefer the actual Future Foundation suit, if I'm still interested in it
  13. I prefer the color of the cape on this to the 80th anniversary; the dark wash on that was just over done. Unfortunately they blew it with the paint on the boots. Whirling hammer is great, but the inscription doesn't need to be there, as it wouldn't be visible when its spinning anyway. At least its a choice for those who missed the first (real) one.
  14. Once AGAIN....a custom that puts a good chunk of what hasbro does to shame. Excellent work.
  15. Right. So, when he (the reviewer) says the artwork on the box doesn't match the figure, that's true, but then in this case, its not supposed to since he doesn't have those brakes.
