  1. I'd like to see them experiment with a build-a-diorama. They couldn't be very big, but a 6-figure wave should be able to include six 4" x 4" square pieces that lock together. I'm thinking 2 bottom pieces that also have pegs (to server as figure stands) then go 2 pieces high. So they'd be 8" long x 8'' high by 4" wide when fully constructed from 1 wave. They could do various store fronts or something similar and make them lock together to create a full city block or street over multiple waves. If they thought through it enough and planned ahead they could build out these things on multiple levels (up) instead of just stretching out long wise also. I feel like this would be an interesting alternative to a BAF. Although it probably wouldn't save anything cost wise. For me as a collector, I've begun to find the diorama building the most challenging part of the hobby. The pre-built ones that aren't just cardboard have gotten to be outrageously expensive.
  2. Nice writeup, Tarot. I agree with your analysis as to what Hasbro seems to be doing, and I honestly think this is the right strategy. I'm at the point in my Legends collecting that I'm far more interested in the obscure characters than well known characters which have mostly all have been done. I love getting figures of characters like Rintrah, Controller, Bonebreaker, Armadillo, Mister Hyde, etc and this is likely the only way they'll ever get done. Guys like Rhino, Apocalypse, Thanos and Hulk will likely still sell as deluxe figures. So I certainly don't want them to end the BAF concept. Yes it requires me to buy repeat figures of the A-listers that I wouldn't buy otherwise, but it still lets me get those characters that would never be made otherwise. Hasbro has also done a good job recently with having characters like Wolverine, Iron Man and Doctor Strange not coming with BAF pieces because they know that they'll sell without them. That gives me an out from buying those figures. I think that the current formula is working well, although I do have concerns about both the windowless packaging and the price increases impacting the future of the line. I think we've reached our maximum acceptable price point for most collectors of this particular quality of figure.
  3. I went ahead and pre-ordered this since I don't have the Hasbro BAF. I do have AOA version and I also have the original Toy Biz Series VII version and the giant Toy Biz BAF. I've been using the Toy Biz Series VII version in my display and haven't opened the AOA version yet. I've been kicking myself for not getting the Hasbro BAF version and I had been hoping that they'd be re-issuing that on the retro card, but I'll take this. It was the same way with Lizard, I missed that BAF and had been hoping that was what they were re-issuing on the retro card, but that's not how it worked out. Right now I have an old Spider-Man Classics Ultimate Lizard in my display.
  4. LOL, I was going to buy the Compound Hulk for the $12.68, but the $5.99 shipping ended up making it a pass for me even at that reduced price.
  5. I have no interest in this particular figure, so my comments will be purely about the new packaging. It won't be enough for me to quit collecting Marvel Legends, but it will be the end for me for a secondary line that I had been collecting in G.I. Joe Classified. I have nearly 30 of those figures so far and all have been kept MIB and I don't intend to ever open any of them. I will not buy a single one of those figures in the new windowless packaging. For Legends, I used to open absolutely everything, but I've done a lot more MIB over the last 5 or so years. I won't quit the line, but all of my future purchases will be through online retailers (which honestly isn't much of a change). It will likely lead me to buying fewer multiples though.
  6. Yes! Yes! Yes! Love this! Mr. Negative is so overdue, even if it is a Gamerverse version. These are generic enough that I plan to buy 3 sets if Gamestop doesn't set a maximum.
  7. I'm a huge fan of this figure and am excited to have it as part of my collection!
  8. I'm a big fan of the MCU, I've watched every movie and TV show immediately when it has been released. In all of that time there has never been an entry like this one where I've watched the trailer and thought "that really looks boring AF". What If? was the probably the closest to that just because it was animated, but I watched it and liked it for the most part. I'm sure that I'll still watch this and probably actually end up enjoying it, but I've honestly never been less interested in an MCU offering based upon trailers and promotional material.
  9. I'm ecstatic to get this figure. I actually ordered 2. I've been using the Face-Off version in the Punisher costume for years now and have long regretted selling off the white suit version. I was very pleased to get this one easily enough. I was never successful in obtaining Zemo so I'm hoping he eventually shows up back on their website or at Fanchannel sites like BBTS.
  10. The Mojoverse set ended up being $146.90 for me once shipping and sales tax (Iowa) were included. I really didn't expect it to be that much....🤢
  11. Agreed. I would have totally been all over this if it came with a Maverick alternate head.
  12. Wow, this was a lot better than I expected. Firelord is the highlight for me, he's a must have. The exclusive MojoVerse box set looks great. It will certainly be nice to get an updated Mojo and Longshot! I'm sure that I'll even get a couple of those 3.75" scale retro Sentinels! Sharon is a maybe, but I'll probably get her. Japanese Spidey is a maybe, but probably not. Bombastic Bag Man is a pass. War Machine is a pass too since I have the deluxe version. Overall these were pretty great reveals!
