  1. I still have the 3.5" Marvel Universe Hulkbuster and it looks great; this is that, scaled way up. Great job. Also very glad to see they detailed the boot jets on the soles! Its odd that so many of Iron Man's armor sets DON'T have this. Nice job!
  2. LOL nice homage to Avengers #144. They even brought back the Vision in his rightful place at the masthead, even if the new costume is unnecessary. But I thought Storm already was an Avenger; joined back in 2010 or so? Nice nod to classic comic goodness!
  3. Finally, a female agent is getting working holsters. Wish they'd done this for the troop builders. But in the words of the ancient prophetess: "Sometimes it seems...We'll touch that dream...But things come slow or not at all". Progress does come....
  4. You're not wrong. They did use the wrong Stark head for this era. They even correctly labeled this as "Tales of Suspense" as that's where Iron Man made his debut, so how they went with this is beyond me. The head they included, is more from the Bob Layton Iron Man of the 70s. Why they do these things, I have no idea.
  5. Ohhhhh we have to give mad props to hasbo for giving the armor the loin protection/skirt/apron and NOT just doing a straight repaint of the gray armor. Fans were really eager for this armor to show, as soon as the Mark I arrived, so its great they're getting this right.
  6. True, Valkyrie doesn't need to tower over the others; in the comics she's 6'3", while She-Hulk and Zarda are 6'7"- 6' 8" respectively. Thundra is 7'2". I don't expect hasbo to make a separate fig that represents 7' 2" and then 7'3", but they should bear in mind 7' is not 6'. Wasp is only 5'4" so this drawing is off. I think if they do Valkyrie and Thundra anytime soon, Val should have as shiny silver as they can make on her metal armor parts (I'm talking about her classic black and blue outfit), Thundra should have a metal ball & chain; Fourhorsemen do these quite a bit and they look fantastic.
  7. Thundra, on the She-Hulk Super Skrull buck, and leave us not forget classic Valkyrie! She could go on this mod or the recent Zarda one.
  8. That green is very loud, but its in line with the animated show. They could use this mod for the F4 outfit, maybe darken the skin a bit....never been a big fan of She-Hulk but this looks really, really good. Another good, clear review by GeekHangover.
  9. I too am concerned about damaging the character. It shouldn't be that way. I'm able to separate what goes on in the comics from a tv or movie but sadly, too many people- including those that are comic book enthusiasts- can't seem to do that. In the words of Ripley, " IQs have just dropped sharply while I was away". Inhumans, Fantastic Four, Eternals, Shang-Chi etc. didn't do well in the cinema, so now those properties are seen as "lesser than". And it bleeds all over, including into action figure production. At any rate, good luck to the Agatha show. Maybe they'll be able to make it a hit.
  10. Very glad to see them showcasing the REAL Iron Fist and giving him his anniversary due. Hopefully they've abandoned the nonsense and are ready to just do good stories now.
  11. Again....if any time they were to use soft goods, Red Widow was the figure to do it with. Other companies are already doing cloth capes (Jada Toys Street Fighter M. Bison for example) and trapping her in this hard plastic just ruins the figure.
  12. LOL the Melter....you know one day they were hitting a dreaded deadline doom, and had to make up a villain for Shellhead...Just look at his first costume (his others were garbage too). They just refused to put any thought whatsoever into this clown at all. Somebody had a tuna melt for lunch and went, "eh wtf".... The Melter. Because, he melts things.
  13. Yeah, I always felt he was way underpowered to be tackling Iron Man, and they nerfed shellhead to make Whiplash more threatening. Of course there's more than one version of him running around, so I could see him as a Daredevil foe, or Iron Fist...
  14. Its not a perfect example, but this is what Iron Man's Stealth Armor boots should have looked like. Whiplash's boots have that curved, kind of scooped design...at any rate, the stealth armor, when it first appeared, was not a straight re-color of the classic red and gold. Regardless, Whiplash looks pretty good here, and is that a separate pony tail I see there! Something that will rotate and not break off. Great!
  15. The classic Baron Zemo....certainly not on my hit parade. But at least they have him accurately done (should have a holster for the luger though) and that's what counts. The ribbed hood, the crown, the snow leopard collar....fantastic. Ah, and to rub my face in it....they have his belt correct too. They can't manage to do justice for the Vision, but this 3rd rate natzi loser gets the proper treatment. Ach, Entschuldigung, mein Freund! Perhaps one day they will get it right!
  16. Highly doubt Target knows that Warbird is the Ms. Marvel that would become Captain Marvel of the MCU. They've fumbled these exclusives many, many times in the past. I wouldn't read that much into it and just realize that its mostly ineptitude.
  17. This has been going on for YEARS with these "exclusive" venues. I ordered Yondu from their site, sometime later it was cancelled for no reason. When I contacted them they admitted it was their fault, but that they would be sure to contact me once their new stock came in. Of course, they never did. The sheer incompetence is just staggering.
  18. Really like GeekHangover's reviews and agree completely, they should have added a little something to Zola instead of making it just a re-issue. "Well, I declare....you did manage to dislodge one of my face circuits!!!" I remember Zola said that to Cap after Cap smashed his chest-face screen. Kirby's atrocious dialogue....made Zola sound like BlanchE Devereaux from the Golden Girls. Anyway maybe a cracked screen effect, I don't know, for this figure. Of course the scene stealer is the original Baron Zemo...he even has the snow leopard ruff collar. MAN I wish they'd do some Golden Age figures!!
  19. No worries, I get it now. You know, I thought Ms. Marvel was just round the corner when that Rogue 2 pack showed up with the scarf. But also thought classic Mockingbird was coming after they released Lady Deathstrike. What a joke, eh?
  20. Yeah I could see hasbo pulling a 3 pack like that- a Zabu with a more tan, darker wash in the fur here and there, maybe a black line around the mouth instead of the pink, that kind of thing. Also which Shanna would they use? The 70s version that started out as a redhead, or the bigger, blonde brickhouse genetically enhanced Cho variant?
  21. I know they color that outfit brown and orange, but I always got the feeling that was supposed to be a shade of tan or even "tawny"...very earthy colors, which does underscore the whole "animal" vibe Wolverine gives off. Deep dark brown leather for the gloves and boots, of course the chest panel....perfect choice for him.
  22. Really?? I didn't know that was ever actually released....there was the 3-4" Universe figure that came out (both the classic red-blue and the Cockrum black version) but I never saw this in 6" format, except for this prototype. Fully agree, those abs look good here.
  23. Good to see Cap on the X-Men, though I missed the chainmail and the star on his back. I liked the Avengers license plate on the motorcycle too. That business with the shield was uncalled for. You don't tug on Superman's cape.
