  1. Toad was included as part of a running anniversary promotion that's been running all year and we already knew he was coming. My condolences to anyone who thought the Warriors 3 would be shown off here in what was otherwise primarily a Spider-Man stream, but that was always going to be very unlikely. And I already said my piece on the latter point as well. I get disappointment about your fan favorite not getting made, but what makes less sense to me is specifically positioning something that's more high profile getting made instead as a sort of "How did this happen?!" when, again, there's a pretty simple common sense explanation for why it did. If we lived in the world where the Warriors 3 had some recent high profile pop culture relevancy then yeah, I might be swayed that them not being made while MJ and Need Leeds did as some sort of baffling move, but we don't so I don't. TBH if Hasbro was gonna make them then the iron would've been hottest around 2013 or so when the second Thor movie was out, but that was way before they were doing the current insane yearly Legends output they do now.
  2. Yes, that doesn't really change anything about what I said though. The Marvel Universe has thousands of characters. Everyone has someone out there pulling for them, even if they aren't crazy popular. I've been wanting the Gen X kids for years. I still do. I'm also mystified when a character from whatever the latest blockbuster release gets made ahead of them, since there's a very clear reason for why that happened. I confess the whole line of discussion is especially odd when this was clearly a Spider-Man themed Fan First stream for the most part, so I don't really know why there was any confusion about them focusing for the most part on Spider-Man characters and not Thor supporting ones.
  3. Because they're major characters in a popular movie series. Pretty open and shut case.
  4. Hmm? Ned isn't a huge need of mine, but he's still a prominent character from a highly popular series of films, as is MJ. There's nothing particularly baffling about the decision to make the two of them, especially since they're far from the first civilians made in the line.
  5. Peni or not, Spider-Man Noir looks pretty snazzy and I'm glad they're making him.
  6. Again, other than possibly the Tom Holland Spider-Man, I'm not sure what about that image is telling people these are repaints in a new box. That's a weird leap to make. Particularly when the MCU figures tend to get a lot of new sculpting anyway, if not entirely new bodies.
  7. I'm not sure where you're getting the idea these would be repaints. The last time they did a Tobey Maguire Spider-Man was in 2007, and even that was just a rerelease of an even older ToyBiz figure. A NWH figure is going to require a new sculpt. In fact, if these were just repaints, we'd likely be getting them sooner than 2023 (as they'd mentioned in the past some of the figures for the 80th anniversary promotion like Agent Anti-Venom and Punisher War Machine were primarily done because repaints are faster to get done than new sculpts).
  8. Dope. Hopefully Holland is in the costume from the end of the film. And hopefully Hasbro gets to the villains as well.
  9. Those truncheons definitely are not the baton they teased in the recent livestream, so that's still up in the air as to what they're going for. I still think something Daredevil related.
  10. I don't particularly care. I'd already gotten rid of my Ock so I've got no issue picking up another to get Silk.
  11. Cool. Was never a fan of the headsculpt on the prior Silk releases. And she's on the Shriek body this time!
  12. Might be a walking stick (NWH Matt Murdock? Dan did tease something DD related on his Twitter). Other thought is it's Mr. Knight.
  13. Now this. https://twitter.com/DanYunIsTrying/status/1501699399126241285?s=20&t=TNeG0G7J7UMplEA2Akjslw
  14. Hmm... It's just a matter of time until they make a D'Onofrio Kingpin. Hell, I was surprised Infinity Ultron was revealed as the BAF of the upcoming Disney+ wave rather than him. A comic Daredevil on the Vulcan body is also a no brainer.
  15. Aren't there just two Life Foundation symbiotes remaining anyway? It's just Riot and Agony. If Venom is on the Omega Red body like the animated version but without those shoulder holes, that'd be cool.
  16. I know it's already happening. The phrasing of it being a way to prevent the X-Men from getting exhausted would suggest it would be in place of some of those, which is what I said would not be happening. The X-waves are already spread far enough apart that exhaustion isn't really a concern. You'll continue to see characters of that sort sprinkled in waves for the bigger guns, as has been the standard operating procedure for a while now. Maybe every now and then something like the Bad Guys wave will be done, but I don't see any sort of greater focus going towards these guys anytime soon. Especially not this year when we already have a pretty good idea of what we'll be getting (barring exclusives and box sets).
  17. I'm not sure exactly what you're referring to here. In lieu of some of the X-Men stuff? Because that's just not gonna happen. As much as I'd like a team like the New Warriors or Thunderbolts to get completed at a faster clip, I'm aware they're not priorities compared to a team like the Avengers or X-Men. "Character Y has never had a figure" is a thing that gets bandied about a lot in the collecting community, but that's just the reality of working with a property like Marvel with (conservatively) hundreds, if not thousands of possible characters.
  18. Even before the New X-Men kids, I'm shocked they still haven't touched anyone from Generation X (other than Jubilee) given how much 90s nostalgia impacts the line. I'm hoping Synch making the jump to the main X-Men team gets him a figure soon(ish).
  19. I think the X-Men do about as well as can reasonably be expected for a franchise that currently has no MCU representation. If my focus in the line were solely X-Men, I can see why it'd seem like they're being short changed, but they fare better than just about every other team or franchise that's not Spider-Man or the Avengers right now. I do sympathize with those who might've been upset with the decision to do solid waves of AOA and HOX/POX characters. While I'm loving the Krakoa era stuff, I can see how having three entire waves eaten up by ultra specific costumes and storylines would be frustrating, especially AOA getting two whole waves. But Hasbro's already returned to the all-encompassing approach with the Bonebreaker wave, so that seems to be done for now.
