  1. Why do you say that? He's saying that 'cause for several months now, various collectors around various states have been reporting here that their local walgreens havent been selling or stocking Legends. Their online store isn't carrying them, even the ones that are supposed to be exclusive to them. Personally I'm hoping they're officially done with the Legends business and that way we're not gonna continue to get jerked around. Pulse would be an ok alternative I guess, but they don't always stock well enough to keep from selling out. Still, gotta believe that hasbro pulse is gonna be better at supplyng hasbro legends better than anyone else. Hopefully...
  2. I feel they've had their run for MCU Ant-Man....its past time the comic version got some love. My BAF choice was Super-Adaptoid because he's Avengers related, who knows when we're gonna get him (if ever) and Ant-Man/Yellowjacket is nothing if not Avengers born and bred. I didn't go with Goliath or Giant-Man because he's been done enough times, and they're never gonna make him the size so many here really want him to be, as a BAF (I'm just totally opposed to Stature because I think its a poorly conceived character, as are any of the alternative Wasps out there). Its been 14 years since we had a Yellowjacket. How is that possible??
  3. I was just thinking that! And with this 3rd movie, its way WAY past time for us to get an Ant-Man wave (comic based): Yellowjacket Ant-Man (original costume, removable helmet) Wasp, red/yellow outfit Equinox (running variant, translucent Ice/Fire, Fire/Ice) Tigra OR Moondragon Whirlwind (no chainmail) Wonder Man (original costume) BAF: Super Adaptoid
  4. They're gonna have to explain how and why Janet survived for decades in that dimension...and I would love to see if they can get Hank in his original comic book suit, if only for a moment. We got to see the helmet at least in Endgame....
  5. Understood, but I specifically addressed the BAF with my Kingpin take. The BAF was great, not enough of the other figures were, I walked away. The BAF has never been the pull for me. More guys start being good about not having EVERYthing hasbro Legends puts out, more chance of production teams realizing they're gonna have to do better. Yes, people complain on this forum. But they also praise. The Legends team has dragged their asses on getting diverse female bodies correct, but they have been excelling on faces! Lightyears ahead of their first swipe at Marvel Legends, and Toybiz. They have made figures of characters I don't even like, and got me to buy them because the work was just so damn spot-on. Nightcrawler...I wish Dave Cockrum had lived long enough to see what they did with Nightcrawler. War Machine! And just now, modular Iron Man, Ultron....words almost fail. So I would say although it may seem pointless, never give up. Never stop holding these guys to the quality standard we know they have met and exceeded in some cases. Point out the errors, make suggestions, complain...and walk away now and then.
  6. Excellent. This is why I have, and I believe all collectors should have, a "walking away" point. As much as I liked Kingpin BAF, I couldn't get into most of the figures needed to build him (and what they did to the Black Cat was just criminal). Fortunately he was released later (and in comic accurate colors to boot- as awful as that outfit is) so I didn't have to walk that far. But if I find the figure egregiously incorrect (Emma Frost), or overpriced (MODOK, haslab Sentinel), then I won't spend money on it. If more of us did that, the company would see it and act accordingly.
  7. He's a little on the skinny side, but that coat looks great and I'm glad to have the "Zemo hood" head
  8. They did a great job here. I'm glad to get it and look forward to having its Legends comic counterpart soon!!
  9. I can definitely agree that consensus is hard /almost impossible to find on these forums. Still, there are certain standards that should be followed and when they're not, fans are gonna complain. Rightfully so. Because why plunk down money for something that isn't correct or doesn't bring you joy? Example, a toy line is showcasing "fully articulated" action figures straight from the Marvel Comics. They wouldn't put Spidey, Cap, and Thor all on the same male buck, those are all different body types and there's no reason the figures can't reflect that. So yeah we complain if they put Riri, Black Widow, & Moondragon on the same buck. The Hulk and the Thing have open or gripping hands, but no fists?? Female figures can't have biceps swivel or double jointed elbows? These are just some of the things that fan complained about, and while it took a long time, these issues were corrected. If we just sit back and pay for whatever is churned out, quality will suffer.
  10. LOL I don't see that happening...its not realistic but yeah if they did take off a hundred or so, I'd reconsider. Thing about these haslab Legends is so far, they have an almost FAO Schwarz vibe....beautifully done, very well crafted....but ultimately over priced.
  11. She's certainly incredible but in no way can I see her as Storm; furthermore, I can't see why Storm would be in the Black Panther's sequel movie if the idea is, there is no T'Challa in this movie. Maybe people will come to their senses and actually introduce an actor to replace Chadwick.
  12. I consider myself a die-hard collector, but I'm not putting down money for every and anything they make. Its a beautiful piece of work, but its not worth $400.00 to me. Just like the recent MODOK- no way to me was that worth $50.00. If they had thrown in some lights /sounds on that, then yeah. I'm sure the producers and various retailers think $400.00 is an acceptable price- if this thing ever goes to the likes of BBTS you can be sure they're gonna charge more- but personally, I can live without an item if it doesnt bring me joy.
  13. Its gonna have to be a walk- away for me i guess. I'm sure they'll make a dazzling Nova but thats not gonna get me to drop $400.00. I wonder if they'll do 3 heralds instead of 2?
  14. I'm hoping we'll get a translucent Invisible Woman, a fully flamed on Human Torch, and wouldn't say no to Psycho Man or any of the Inhumans...
  15. Yeah by now we should get a no-sh1t look at Tigra, this Excalibur set, and more of the comic based figures they were going on about. Its all way over due.
  16. I said the same thing earlier, I think the enthusiasm has died down. I'm not saying the project won't get funded, but people are beginning to look at the proposed product and the price and are going "whoa, am I really doing this?" and they're taking a beat. At the end of the day their desire to get it will win out over any practical concerns. Especially if haslab tosses out that incredible 6" figure that'll re-ignite interest. But the more I think of it, the more steamed I get. It smacks of gouging, it says they know big G can't stand on his own (no pun intended), it tells me they see us as Suckers. I don' like that....
  17. I think the most practical vehicle for them to do would be the Fantasticar and/or the Punisher van. Something that can hold 4 figures, separates into individual units, with working lights etc. I can see dropping the kind of money Sentinel and Galactus are looking for. A van with all the bells and whistles, weapons, extendable platform etc. would probably be easier to produce, though, and probably a tad less expensive. At the same time, the Quinjet and Black Bird both probably have more name recognition. Decisions, decisions.....
  18. Yes, Tigra. And Excalibur. Why has there been no news/ movement on either. I demand a recount!!
  19. The count has gone to a trickle....so I imagine they'll release these tiers any day now, and gen up more interest....
  20. Wow they have really upped their game! Those pictures look absolutely incredible and its all thanks to brilliant photography and primo Marvel Legends figures (though Iron Man's arms still look too short). BRAVO!!
  21. As long as any quality herald on this "campaign" is also released to every one else later I'm happy.
  22. Why is it everytime some person of color has any part of any movie or tv deal, on this forum we have to hear these outraged whines of "tokenism" or "SJW/woke"...oh I know why, its because the underlying belief...no, FEAR...is that they couldn't possibly get there on their own merits. Stop being such a scared rabbit.
  23. Wow, I thought they already had a director and shooting stalled due to COVID.....hmmmm... I loved the costume worn in the first movie. Hope to see that again!
