  1. SO, if the TB 20th Anniversary Sub-Line is going to go past Cap, Ironman, Hulk and Toad, I am curious which figures are most likely to be re-done. Given that there is a Ghost Rider 50th Anniversary next year, Ghost Rider and Blackheart are strong candidates. Angel hasn't had a single figure release in well over a decade, so he is a very strong candidate. Since they have been showing a lot of respect to classic versions of characters lately (upcoming Doctor Strange, Retro Vision, Ultron, Dormammu), Beta Ray Bill, Powerman, and Iron Fist could be strong contenders. But we have also never been given a truly great Daredevil, so that one could make the cut (though probably more likely in a Spiderman wave). Finally, Namor with the water base from early in the line - that could also make it. Those are the ones I think might make it in the line...or at least I hope they do!
  2. Got this one a few weeks ago in the UK, but hated the head, so I replaced it with a Cannonball head and replaced the hair with hair from (I believe) Adam Warlock. I think it is a massive improvement.
  3. WAIT, WHAT?! A rumored Target Lizard Set?!!! I hadn't heard about that one, but suspected it would happen since they re-did Sandman and the only Lizard we have is that monstrously large BAF. Wondering if it will be a whole new scaled down version (HOPING), or a Deluxe Release BAF. I am guessing we will only see Pre-Orders for the TOYBIZ Anniversary Wave, but hopefully we will get confirmation (with pics) of the Avengers Wave, X-Men Wave. Love to hear more about Doctor Strange and Thor waves, but that may be asking for too much.
  4. I was fortunate enough to get one a few weeks ago while I was in the UK, and I have to say the head sculpt is honestly terrible. I am trying to figure out which head I can use to do a little customizing (the hair is fine, but the face is just brutal).
  5. Yes, on all accounts. The ankles are funky, and he is a bit taller than I would like, but I still love him! However, the Classic Loki (that is about to be re-released in the Retro wave) might be better scaled in height, but they put that one on WAY too big of a buck (it is actually bulkier than the old one we are referring to)... so, I am keeping both, but I still prefer that old one. Hoping they give Thor's supporting characters more attention over the next couple years - I would love anything from War of the Realms (I have about 5 custom Frost Giants under construction because I couldn't wait any longer).
  6. I have gotten rid of everything in my collection that doesn't really fit with today's Legends, and this one made the cut and still looks fantastic (the head sculpt is just top notch), and probably still scales because he is an Asgardian. 😉
  7. It seems they might of just wanted to change it up, since the BAF version had a sand impression in the angry head, so they reversed it with this release. I agree with others that I would have rather had additional sand effects vs. that alternate sand hole head, but I absolutely think they did the right thing with the normal angry head - it looks fantastic.
  8. I know everyone has a preference (BAF or RETRO), and as much as I liked the BAF, it always looked really weird in my collection. The sand pieces were far superior on the BAF, and I liked the color of the sand better, but I like everything else better about this new Retro version...better scale, symmetry, and the head sculpt just looks way more in line with other legends.
  9. Got a Doctor Strange preordered! That was easy. Fingers crossed all goes to plan (I hear about cancellations).
  10. Oh, how I wish we could get more figures based on Bachalo, Madureira, and Ramos! All three have a really fun exaggerated style that would look great on my shelf!
  11. After watching the video I am slightly less annoyed by the price hike. There is more detail on that thing than I realized.
  12. Agreed that there isn't much they can improve upon with the Hulk figure, except multiple heads and maybe better paint apps. I would love to see the SDCC head sculpt, but repurposed it with the hair from the Wolverine Hulk Two Pack. That could make for an even better Hulk.
  13. Thanks for the clarification! Man, I had just started collecting 5 years before Marvel Legends began, so I remember when they were first announced... amazing to see how far they have come.
  14. AGREED! I am also surprised they didn't get clever and include Skrull versions of heads (for this and many others) - easy way to ensure they move product because people buy multiples.
  15. I remember Toad not actually being designed for this line, but I didn't think it was for an X-Men wave though. JAY C can you remember the story on Toad being in Wave 1?
  16. I almost made the same comment about the head sculpt looking like the 90's movie! Love this new one (for me this is the most perfect Cap ever).
  17. This figure is PERFECT!!! I loved the 80th Anniversary, but always thought it was too dark (love these classic colors). Happy to get confirmation that there is a 20th Anniversary Wave, and can't wait to see the rest.
  18. Interested to see which version of Thor we will be getting...but I think practically any version of Thor would be a good idea since only the 80th anniversary really knocked it out of the park. Personally I would like to see Ultimates Thor, Herald of Galactus Thor, and War of the Realms Thor (with interchangeable mangled arm, and Destroyer armor arm). Considering a Thor movie is coming out in 2022 I am sure we will have some great Thor figures coming, and given that Halsab Galactus comes out in 2022, I would guess there is a strong likelihood that Herald Thor might be one of the Heralds that aligns with that release.
  19. Strange in his classic costume has been one of my top ten must haves for over a decade (The Toybiz version was actually great, but just doesn't fit into today's collections). This figure looks incredible, even if it is a Walmart exclusive and I will have to pay top dollar for it on eBay because I can never find them in store. Interesting, the cape looks like the trim details might have been better on the previous cape from the Strange movie wave... glad I held on to one just in case. Can't wait to get this! Now let's get working on classic/retro Drax, Ronan, Valkyrie, Iron Fist, and Powerman, please!
  20. Has a Toybiz 20th Anniversary release been confirmed?! Damn, I totally missed that! That would be incredible.
  21. Ya know, I was going to challenge your take on this (since what I wrote is what I have experienced as Father, Collector and Consumer - clearly just as valid as your observation to the contrary), but then I read the end of your comment (Today's kids are mostly into gaming and Tide Pod snorting). I hope you realize how stupid and lazy that last bit was (It was never a MOSTLY thing, and that joke is a couple years old now).
