  1. I admit that I decided to pass on Astonishing Wolvie when he went up for pre-order and now might be having mild regrets as I think he's sold out most places now. I'll get over it, though. The X-Men '97 Wolvie is probably the only Wolverine that I need.
  2. Yes, love Vengeance. I still have the Toy Biz main line version in my Legends display.
  3. 😃 The Warriors Three are long overdue. I'd love a wave with comic versions of Fandral, Hogun, Volstagg, Kurse, Balder, Heimdall and Executioner. With that being said, there are also still a lot of characters with more comic appearances than the Warriors Three who still don't have figures either after 20+ years. It's not just them that have been overlooked. I'd really like to see Hasbro try to do something closer to a 50/50 ratio with previously made characters and never before made characters. I really don't think that's too much to ask. I'm also someone who doesn't consider a new costume as something new if it's a character that has been made before. That still counts as a repeat for me. So for this wave I really only consider Lilith and Hellstrom to be new characters even though I completely understand that Blackheart and Dracula were last done by Toy Biz and not Hasbro. The Marvel roster is well over 20,000 characters strong and grows every single week as new comics continue to be printed, so there is no risk of ever running out of possibilities.
  4. Happily pre-ordered the whole wave from BBTS except Hellverine. Most excited for Daimon and Lilith.
  5. As someone who does not have his figures displayed in an enclosed air tight space, soft goods are problematic for me. They are incredible dust magnets. There are times when soft goods make sense, but as a general rule I'm not really a fan. I also don't really like to mix and match figures with and without soft goods in my display.
  6. I wholeheartedly agree with this. As collectors we all know that re-dos are part of the game to keep a line going, but the ratio is way off. This is especially true now that the newly redone figures have started to cost multiples of what the original versions cost when they came out.
  7. They showed a lot more today than I expected! My favorites were the previously unmade Destiny, Hellstrom and Lillith. Odin looks great and will replace the old BAF for me. I'm worried that he's going be like $60 though. No interest in the movie Venom or the Warlord Prof X. Love Destiny but hate that it comes with that crappy Rogue. Even though Destiny is a little plain, it's still my 2nd favorite figure of the year so far (behind X-Men '97 Maddy). Phoenix looks epic, but probably another $60 figure. The Blackheart wave is very interest but a lot of re-dos here. I'll likely skip Hellverine if he doesn't come with a BAF part. Will wait on the inevitable plain brown suit release that they've teased a couple of times now with this one and the Broodverine. Love Hellstrom and Lillith as previously unmade characters. I like that they went with the armored Dracula look rather than recreainge the classic version like Toy Biz did. I like the Bloodstorm figure. Blackheart, Brother Voodoo and Moon Knight all look like decent upgrades over the prior versions, but I can just never personally get too excited about remakes. Overall, some great stuff. I'll probably buy everything but Venom, Warlord Prof X and Hellverine.
  8. I'm still expecting Odin and Destiny/Mystique and not much else new, maybe Constrictor/Crossbones. Probably a minor HasLab tease at the very end, which I expect to be Foom.
  9. I'm looking forward to this as I really enjoyed the first season! This starting in mid-July will likely line up well with The Boys, The Acolyte and House of Dragons all wrapping up their seasons so I'll be needing something new about then!
  10. I don't have any idea what the wall of skulls hint could be but I'd be shocked if they didn't reveal Odin and the Destiny/Mystique 2-packs. Odin is what I expect to be the last of the anniversary figures. It would be a tremendous missed opportunity to not reveal Destiny/Mystique during Pride Month. We'll probably get a "tease" only at the very end on the HasLab (which I'm expecting to be Foom) since Star Wars just revealed theirs. The other intriguing thing is the rumored "Strange Tales" wave, which I could see them doing some horror figures for, but it seems a little early for those reveals. If they show Destiny/Mystique then I expect that they'll show Constrictor/Crossbones as well. Maybe that rumored Deluxe Phoenix also?
  11. Assuming we get another D+ wave, of course. Those didn't exactly sell well, I don't think. The Watcher, Infinity Ultron and Hydra Stomper waves all hit deep clearance where I live. I was able to pick up multiples of almost all of them at retail for $7 per figure for custom/kitbash fodder. I know that they got even lower than that at some places. I won't be surprised if we never see another full wave of those.... of course, now that I said that they'll announce a wave of them later this month...
  12. Yeah, I'll pick this up - but this $40 price tag for just slightly bigger figures isn't exactly a value. I already have the BAF and the ToyBiz version but I'll still get this one anyway. Update: Now that I've seen side by side images of both this new MCU one and the comic BAF, I've changed my mind and will be sticking with what I've got. There are things that I like just a little bit better about each, but in the end the comic version is just truer to my mind's eye of the character - which for me is always the comics and not live action. Image borrowed from Beamish on Fwoosh, which he found on Facebook.
  13. Congratulations to SpiderS! Thank you Jay and BBTS for doing this every month. Good luck to every one in June!
  14. Weird that this thread with the last update 6 months ago is now showing up as the top / most recent story on marvelousnews.com homepage. These are nice, though I picked up 5 of them, most of them when they got down to $14-$15 on Prime. I'm expecting that the Arcade Sentinels that are rumored for release will be half this size and still cost at least $25.
  15. Meh, Sam will always be Falcon to me, not Cap. I'd probably only be interested in this if it Target's 70% clearance point like many of their other figures over the past few years. Otherwise, I'm good. I've got the last one of these that they did (that didn't come with the wings) shoved in a bin somewhere completely out of sight and out of mind along with the handful of the Build-a-Wings parts that I did actually get. I use the retro carded Falcon in my display.
