  1. No way he is playing Bushman - the backlash casting a white actor would be too much. Interested to see how this project turns out.
  2. Sort of how I feel too, but I will be good money we see Tigra, Banshee, Blob, Toad, and Classic Doctor Strange within the next 12 to 16 months... they are just too long overdue, and given the number of figures they have pumped out the last few years, these characters are only logical.
  3. Would have much preferred the jazzercize outfit version, and the alternate head looks like it might be a bit small, but I am totally getting this!
  4. I have damn near every character I really need (only about 10 to 20 absolute must haves like an updated Doctor Strange eventually, and maybe Sandman and Lizard when they eventually do them in a proper scale), so while a price hike is annoying, it isn’t necessarily a deal breaker because I don’t need to purchase everything. It will be interesting to see how it affects sales though.
  5. The BAF a couple years ago was actually quite fantastic. I'd try and pick one up, as I highly doubt you will see another for at least ten years unless they add him to a boxed set or deluxe like they just did with Kingpin.
  6. Marvel Monsters are definitely on my must have list, so here is hoping this happens!!! 🙂
  7. I have heard folks guess that the tail the brand team referenced could be Fin Fang Foom, or Tigra, but I'm going to make a guess that with all the Spiderman love with the retro line that the tail could be for a new, more classic scale Lizard (the Lizard BAF is awesome, but I would love a smaller version...and maybe a better scale Sandman and Absorbing Man too).
  8. Funny, I almost mentioned the Bad Guys wave as the kind of thing I am excited about (most excited about Lady Deathstrike too). Totally agree with your comments about the MCU figs being necessary to a wave's success, and that separating out MCU from comic would be a great improvement. They'll never be able to please us all, but they are doing a pretty great job of keeping us all engaged even if we aren't getting exactly what we want all the time. I have a pretty extensive want list with about 30 absolute must haves and an additional 30 that would be really great. It is cool watching my list dw
  9. Not a bad suggestion! I was just commenting on this with BENN (he prefers theme waves, I prefer varied waves), but I think this could be a happy medium. Don't get me wrong, the theme waves are great too (like BENN, the X-Men Theme waves have probably been my favorites), I just love variety.
  10. BENN you're lucky you didn't commit until they started with the complete X-Men Waves - you saved yourself a lot of money and time spent replacing older versions that needed updating. I don't disagree with your take - I get the business of why Hasbro does what they do - I wasn't saying what I wanted was the strongest plan for Hasbro, it is just what I would like to see. That is the beauty of this - there isn't just one type of collector, or right or wrong way for Hasbro to do this. As mentioned, I will buy whatever they pump out (their releases just get better and better), and what we are seein
  11. I started collecting right before the Marvel Legends line started, and I remember the aim being to focus on iconic characters... not really focusing on a complete wave from one character's comics. We had waves with X-Men characters and Avengers characters in the same wave... there was a wave with Blade, Colossus, Fury, Mister Fantastic, Red Skull, Sabretooth, and Silver Surfer - that is what I think they should get back to! I like complete teams too (X-Force, New Mutants), but I think the waves would be a lot more exciting if there was a little bit of everything. Imagine a wave with Classic Do
  12. The Marvel Select Destroyer actually scales beautifully with Legends. Totally agree on everything else you mentioned, especially about Ulik - I managed to get one, and not only does it have the problems you mentioned, but I also got a defective one with two left feet (seriously).
  13. Bigbadtoystore has them on preorder - I buy most my figures there or directly through Hasbropulse (Toy hunting became too tough once Toys r Us folded, and Target is just too hot or cold...and Walmart is straight up awful, so online is the way to go for me)!
  14. I agree, there really isn’t an iconic or definitive look, and I too thought this version was/is quite good! I have four on preorder, but now you have thrown down the gauntlet and I may need to purchase more!
  15. Classic/Retro version of Doctor Strange, Ronan, Drax, Red Skull, Hercules, Blob, Toad, Banshee, Human Torch, Iron Fist, and Powerman, please! And AOA Sabretooth, Kree, Brood, Dum Dum Dugan, and Marvel Monsters!
  16. I hear you about Supreme Hydra and which version it may be, but we know they don't always get the details about the characters right (see Thunderstrike), and if you google Hydra Supreme or Supreme Hydra you get mostly the same details for who that is, so my guess is still that you are probably right about Stevil, but it would be a massive miss for them to not include alternate heads for Red Skull and Baron Von Strucker, so my guess is still that is what we will see.
  17. Lady Deathstrike! This has been one of my top picks for years. Can't wait to see how it looks considering how much they have raised their game since the last version. My guess is Hydra Leader will come with a Red Skull and Baron Von Strucker head. The Hood isn't a must have for me and I think there were much better choices that should have been ahead of him, but many people want him, and I will still pick him up. This is gonna be a great wave. I am betting Blob will be the BAF...or Maestro.
  18. No, they didn’t supersize him, but he fought Frost Giants with Frank Castle, Juggernaut, and Black Knight - it was bonkers!
  19. I wonder if the hair can be heated, removed, and swapped. I prefer the original release, but love the hair on the new one!
  20. Rogue and Gambit look absolutely fantastic! Hope I like them as much once they are on my shelf. I found the darker color scheme on Green Goblin and Mysterio were missed once I replaced them with Retro versions, but I don't think that will be the case with these two (the hair sculpts on both of these look great, the colors pop, and the greater detail on Gambit's effects are a huge improvement).
  21. I like Silverback’s suggestion! -the pearlescent color you used is really great! I would also consider shading - it would really make it pop! Like a light gray or a clear blue.
  22. Just me, but I don't think they should cast Iceman or Human Torch in clear unless they do a wash over it, I mean these characters (as I remember them) are not see through in the comics. And I agree that we will probably see more FF in 2021, so hopefully we get a definitive Human Torch along with great versions of the rest. I would love to see the red with black dashes/lines all over, like I remember him from when I was a kid!
  23. That is awesome! You put a lot of thought into that! 🙂 I spread all the different Armies about my collection too!
