  1. In the comics, his gloves and boots were a lighter green. I'm not knocking the gold look, however, and like I said before this is great for anyone who couldn't get the figure released when the Lizard BAF came out, and doesn't want to spend like $60-70.00 for it today (!) so I see it as win for everyone.
  2. Its baffling to me that they would make an Eternals movie, when there are so many more properties Marvel has. On the other hand, they've pulled off some longshots before. I am annoyed, however, at how these outfits don't represent the characters from the comics. I mean there is virtually no resemblance. Sure hope they use this time to improve the work...fingers crossed!
  3. That's an odd choice...in his original outfit, he had green gloves and boots....but if this is correct, its a good chance for those who missed it first time out.
  4. I love that idea. Its a long shot, but I for one would welcome a second Widow wave. I think the first wave overall was underwhelming; I'd love to see a new Black Widow figure, but this time done RIGHT. Never been satisfied with the figures so far and don't think they've done her justice. A more robust, comic accurate figure with the proper face would be nice. The vintage version came close, but the body was still a bit too slender and the "mary jane" face just didn't belong (I swapped out the alternate Dark Phoenix Jean Grey head for mine). She's supposed to be Marvel's premiere super spy, bad-ass assassin, so lets give her a figure that reflects that. Also, they could use that wave to do a better Red Guardian and include a helmeted head this time. The Yelena figure was all around weak, too. Doubt they'd do another movie version this close to the one just released so it would likely also be the comic version. I'd add a Madame Hydra/Viper, Vanguard from the Soviet Super Soldiers, maybe even the Crimson Dynamo we all REALLY like, tied together with a Titanium Man BAF...
  5. As far as the economy goes, this is gonna be a hard sell no matter how you look at it; unemployment has skyrocketed and disposable income wont be as available, with all these businesses' being affected. Haslab may have no other choice than postponing a bit. To answer JC's original question, It just makes more sense to hold off on this project for now. If they wanna put out some conceptual art, fine. But take the time to perfect this thing, see the best way to give it the best quality and bring in the price so that more people can buy it once economy improves.
  6. Very very nice....yes. As befitting the Sorcerer Supreme. It'd be great if they could work the Eye with an actual articulated "lid" feature too. And to be clear, I'm talking about the original Eye, not the movie variant. Your idea is perfect and I'd snap that up in heartbeat. Not even the Crimson Bands of Cyttorak could hold me back!
  7. The Falcon- classic red/white outfit, standard underarm wings, translucent "hard light" wings, fully articulated Redwing (wings, head) Invisible Woman- TWO pack figures: clear translucent figure, semi translucent figure. Large "dome" force field effect (covers 2-4 figures), plus smaller field effect. Include "blast/smoke" effects to simulate strikes on force field The Vision- CORRECT costume with cord collar cape, sculpted belt, boots. "Phasing" translucent effect arm (bonus if they figure a way to get it to simulate going thru a person- one end flat against foe's chest, other end with peg that fits into most marvel legends back maybe?) , optic blast beams (translucent yellow). 2 heads. Red Wolf- coup stick, fully articulated Lobo wolf ( jaw, body, legs) Angel- classic Neal Adams dk blue/white costume, fully articulated feathered wings (at least as good as the 4" marvel universe figure from years ago) Iron Spider-Man- metallic red/gold outfit, fully articulated gold spider "legs"
  8. This is hardly "fear mongering". It could be over in 60 days, hopefully....but it might not be. But even if it is, immediately going back to jamming 1000s of people into confined spaces, from all over who knows where, is a risky notion. Haslab can go on the back burner for now. There's still uncertainty around the mortality rate, but annual flu typically has a mortality rate of around 0.1% in the states. In comparison, recent data suggests COVID-19 has a mortality rate more than 20x higher, around 2.3%(according to a study published Feb. 18 by the China CDC Weekly). The death rate varied by different factors such as location and an individual's age. All the people dying in Italy, Spain, and elsewhere is not fear mongering- that's reality. Even a certain someone who said the 2-3% fatality rate was a "false number", is finally starting to come around to realizing its a serious issue. I have a friend who's now on a ventilator, too weak to breathe on her own or even talk. She was totally fine 2 weeks ago. The Sentinel and the conventions can hold off for now. Stay safe! Stay healthy!
  9. This movie has Fail stamped all over it and they know they've sunk a lot of money into it already. Now I'm not saying they created this epidemic as a cover to hide this box office failure. Some people say that. You might think that. I couldn't possibly comment.
  10. Not sure at this point they even could move forward with this proposal...but at this time, I would say hold. Stay in place, re-think and re-work it. I'd rather they took their time and did it right. Whatever project they decide on will ultimately cost a bit more than we're used to, and if they want it to be successful, the quality is gonna have to be top-notch. The best way to achieve that is to really put some time and effort into it.
  11. Agree! Titanium Man just demands a BAF. With the right shade of metallic green, and the correct head sculpt, it would be incredible. I'd love to see them do the face plate much like what they did for the MCU Yellowjacket...clear plastic over the face, making it look like he's got a face shield. For TM, I'd have the yellow eyes really glow, and have tinted clear shield over the face.
  12. And there you have it , you basically answered your own question. I'm not seeing how its irresponsible; JC is entitled to his opinion here like anyone else, even if he's he webmaster. Now if he was blocking anyone's posts who don't agree with his, that would be irresponsible. He doesn't speak for everyone, but certainly the majority of fans, when they hear Crimson Dynamo, are expecting the classic armor and not this BAF. Yes, "best" and "worst" are all subjective opinions in a matter like this, as you point out. And I maintain that the version most of us prefer will be showing up very soon, maybe in a wave that has Titanium Man as the BAF.
  13. Obscure guys like this are just great for those of us who really love the classic Marvel comics. Also, it avoids the oversaturation of Wolverine and Iron Man figures. This is gonna make the appearance of figures like, say, Silver Centurion, all the more sweeter.
  14. Yeah, see, he gets away with that sh1#%t+ because he has the monopoly! This is what happens when you have no competition and too much power.
  15. Blind stupidity, borne of desperation and foolishness. Hopefully there will be a silver lining where this is looked at, and this monopoly is broken up. Free market is a good thing, but if a company/ person has no competition and no one to answer to when they get all that power, they also will have the power to control that free market. Kiss freedom goodbye, 'cause we're left with just orders from the power brokers.
  16. Annihilus, the Living Death Who Walks Ultron Dracula (Tomb of Dracula, Gene Colan) The Super Adaptoid Nekra Death Bird Mandrill (what a freak show that would be)
  17. No. Like Prof X, Invisible Woman, Cyclops, Iron Man etc. it could just be an accessory. And of course they could always do Banshee without any effect at all. But please don't use this head...yikes.....
  18. The skull face is screen-printed on his mask, at least in this original version. So it wouldn't have sculpted parts. Maybe a hardened face plate would have those teeth sculpted as you suggest. When Kieron Dwyer created him, he had these freakin huge arms, which was captured pretty well in the SDCC 2013 exclusive figure. This figure looks a bit smaller, but in proportion to Cap looks about correct, I think. But yeah I don't get that Hyperion torso; they need to retire that thing.
