  1. I was never mad about this gray out fit, and the jacket made no sense, but what's great about this picture, besides the composition, is her face....THIS is what the Widow should look like. Love to see her re-issued on a better body buck (seriously, they put her on the kate bishop figure. So the premier deadly assassin has the physique of a smaller, shorter, still-under- training-teenage girl??), longer hair and this face. Bada$$!

    Putting Nimrod in a multi-pack and made an exclusive would be a really bad idea by Hasbro. This is  afigure a lot of people want, it would make sense to make a Deluxe so the most number of people will get it

    That's not what I wrote. I explicitly said I didn't think they needed to be in a 3 pack. I then wrote I had concerns about it being an exclusive.


  3. I don't mind the 3 pack but I don't see why its necessary. Both Psylocke and Fantomex would sell well as part of an ordinary wave; Nimrod could easily be sold under the "deluxe" label and will be snapped up. At a price point of around $80.00 that's about reasonable. My biggest concern is making it exclusive; I've had better luck with Amazon in this department but theyre certainly not fool proof. I want everyone who wants one to have the equal opportunity to get one.

    The green goblin's eyes look horrible, the pupils are too big, they should be just a small point to make it look more threatening, you just have to see any image of the cartoon to realize

    I don't have  a problem with the figure's eyes; I am disappointed they gave him that bat glider though. The toybiz glider looked like the comic, but for some reason Hasbro took the batwings off for their version. TB Hobgoblin's glider looks like his comic counterpart too (he got Xzbit to pimp his ride), but Hasbro ended up giving him a rinky dink version. Anyway, hoped they'd give Green Goblin a better one this time. Otherwise its a great figure and 'Im getting it!

    Walgreens has up for pre-order the new Marvel Legends exclusive classic Moon Knight figure which was announced earlier today. According to the site it will be released on August 24, 2020.

    Moon Knight feels right

    First time I read a comic featuring Moon Knight, this song was popular....my child brain thought it was funny to replace "moon light" with "Moon Knight"...sorry , all....stupid nostalgia. Though now I'm wondering if they'll ever release him in his FA costume...

     


  6. News of box sets is great. I'm sure they have their own plans, but I see this as an excellent opportunity to finish out the Inhumans, Alpha Flight, maybe even Wrecking Crew and/or Guardians of the Galaxy. Also perfect opportunity to do my pet project, Golden Age heroes:

    1. Sub-Mariner

    2. Human Torch

    3. FA Captain America, with first shield

    4. Original Vision

    5. Baron Blood

    6. Blazing Skull

    7. Miss America

    Part II would be Red Raven, Bucky, Toro, Whizzer, Warrior Woman, Destroyer, U-Man

    Exciting news!!

    I mean I really love that Moonight, the problem they had to make a Walgreens exclusive like come on I couldn't get any star war exclusives from there like commander Obi-Wan, and completely missed out on silver surfer, now they are reading him. This is going to be so hard to find😥. And why didn't they use the new spiderman sculpt on him, what a missed opportunity by harbor.

    Just placed order for moonknight https://www.walgreens.com/search/results.jsp?Ntt=moon knight

     

    Go get him!

    I hope you're right!

     

    The foot does look like Sebastian Shaw and I'm fucking excited. 

    Yeah, if its not Shaw and turns out to be Da Costa or Leland, I guess that'll indicate the rest of the Hellfire Club is on the way. The Kingpin mold could get more use if they go with Leland.

    What I'm really hoping is that the club member will be accompanied by Emma Frost or the Black Queen in accurate body molds....

    So WG is doing the preorder thing with Moonknight?  hmm, they did that with ironman 2020 too, right?  maybe they will be doing preorders for exclusives from here on out, although that seems strange to me.

    Yeah, up til today, thought it was gonna be Warmachine at Walgreens, not Moon Knight. Hope it goes up today without a hitch...but I've vowed not to go chasing these things anymore. I have the modern day MK and both previous versions from TB days....so I'm good.

    Wasn't expecting to get the Green Goblin as I already have him, but what the hell, this new one's comic accurate....so BAM! 🙂

    Fooking hell, just read that caption....is this a comic book about superpowered mutants fighting evil, or is it some ridiculous soap opera. No wonder I stopped reading these. On the other hand, I do love that Fantomex design, so would be nice to have a Marvel Legend of him!

    LOL this isnt ESPN, though enjoy the coverage of people sitting around playing sports video games over there. These types of stories are actually some of the most read stories we publish and I base that on site statistics not on comments that per usual are based on nothing but your own personal opinion and your constant desire to try and troll. You are right though it is a good topic for discussion here on the forums and stories like this help bring people from the main page to the forums, giving them something to discuss. When you start running your own websites though feel free to run them how you see fit and please feel free to come back and share with us how it goes.

    Burn!!:wink:


  12. Hey I was thinking they had been chipping along with finishing the Serpent Society but actually there's only four done that I can think of: Cobra, Cottonmouth, Eel, and the star of any show, Rock Python. They've not done any of the female members to date, I know the  Viper (aka Madame Hydra) was done (way back) , but I'm not counting her. The Constrictor was also done a long while back, so I'm not counting him (though I hope when/if they do,they'll give him those cool translucent coils the 4" version had) either. Or, do you all think since they already did Rock Python, there's no need to finish out the team, since he's the only reason to even get them, right?

  13. 1. Iron Spider (metallic, red/gold, FOUR waldoes)

    2. Namorita (iridescent green scaled one piece bathing suit)

    3. White Tiger (translucent green amulet)

    4. Basilisk (optic beam effects)

    5. Tarantula

    6. Madame Web (BAF chair?)

    7. Cardiac

    8. Man Wolf (good base for Jack Russell Werewolf By Night)

    9. Swarm (like Cloak, figure is opaque but made of bees)

    10. Wil-O' -the Wisp

    *Equinox would be a great figure...all translucent, one part ice the other fire...and it alternates so you could have ice/fire or fire/ice and both would be correct)

    I think his artwork looks nice, but using his style consulting him would not be cool, like his DC line he is not doing it justice, hopefully, that can change. I wish Hasbro can take the DC line, wouldn't that be something.

    I'm laughing here, as your post reminds me of the time back in the 80s when Warner bros floated the idea to sell off their DC characters to Marvel. Imagine if that deal had actually gone through. Then Hasbro doing DC figures wouldn't be an issue at all! :laugh:

    "Yeah, I know they initially previewed this guy with metallic paint (and also a different bodysculpt, if I remember correctly), and I agree the figure has issues. I'm just not sure why people are specifically so hung up on the paint being metallic, since that would seem not to reflect any comic depiction of the character...".

    The pictures I posted are from the comics and other formats used over the years that show they do reflect a "metallic" sheen on the outfit. And if you look at the last picture there it wasn't a different body buck. Far as the paint scheme goes, again, No, it doesn't "have" to be "metallic" but there it is. That's how a lot of fans think of him, and judging from the initial press releases from Hasbro, that's what they thought too. Why they changed from that to what we actually have, I couldn't tell you.

    Sometimes the prototype shown is not what we get and that's gonna be a good thing for the new Storm that's coming- the first pic showed her cape cuffs as black when theyre supposed to be yellow, and they may change her figure from the deflated scrawny thing they showed, to a more robust form she's supposed to have. Who knows if they'll actually come through...

    The one piece is the most likely. Plus when they do her, they can use it again for Marina, Namora, Dorma etc.

    She breaks my rule of no sidekicks/copy cats.  Generally I cant stand "kid/female version of" type characters. No to Batgirl, even more no to Batwoman. No to Supergirl, etc. ( in fact DC seems to be the worst offender of this trope). 

    Kate Bishop is a no-go too. Cant stand Bucky, 3rd rate rip-off of Robin. Toro I'm meh on.

    But I did like Robin (Dick), Wonder Girl (Donna Troy), and really like Miles Morales. Namorita gets in there, and even Namora from Agents of Atlas. Now theres a team I'd like to see, but none of them have ever been Marvel Legends so they don't fit the "teams never completed" theme.

  17. Considering the sloppy work done on his Batman and Superman DC figures, no, I 'm not interested in a McFarlane type Marvel figure. Now if its based on his art style, but neither he nor anyone affiliated with his company have a hand in the production, that's  a different story. Besides I think he's too wound up with his kickstarter. That work looks great by the way.

    Figures inspired by Cockrum, Buscema, Perez, Bryne, Lee, Adams? Id sure be interested in those.

    See, I don't understand why Guardian would have metallic paint. When has his costume ever been depicted as metallic? But, I do wish he and Vindicator matched better. Maybe mine are a fluke, but my Guardian has a much lighter red than Vindicator, and it bothers me every time I look at the two of them.

    When Guardian was announced as a figure, the first release pics were of him in a chrome/metallic look. The final release didn't have it. They slapped on a sloppy deco job, and the red they used just looks cheap.

    Many fans were looking forward to that chrome version. Is it mandatory? No. But it sure would've helped this figure from being so blah.  And don't get me started on that face sculpt.

    A lot of people like this guy, I think theyd be jazzed to get a decent re-do. Tie that improved version to a wave or box set, and I think fans would love it.
