Newbie (1/14)



  1. Here’s Natasha from the issue I referenced above (March 1994, Captain America issue 425). The new figure is spot on with this look. Growing up with this comic in my collection set this appearance as my default mental image for Natasha. I always considered kit bashing to recreate it. I am SO stoked for this new figure.
  2. Definitely subjective. I remember when GotG was announced by Marvel Studios. I watched the trailer thinking "Where's Vance Astro?" I was also pretty bummed out that Aleta wasn't in it, haha. I was only vaguely familiar with the title back in the early 90s. I certainly didn't follow it for the two and a half decades between then and the film's release. Darkhawk is another early 90s guy with whom I'm familiar only because I had a classmate in third grade who was obsessed with the character while the rest of us were into the X-Men.
  3. I've seen it going for around $35 online. If you can manage the extra $10, that might be your most reliable option.
  4. On topic, I'm surprised to see the figures being listed above as pegwarmers. Here on the Alabama gulf coast, all I ever see is Lizard BAF Wave Spider-Woman and Gwenpool. Walgreens' shelves will always carry, like, ONE Medusa or Yellow-Suited Daredevil, maybe a Thundra or Namor. Until recently, there was absolutely no shortage of Time Heist-Suited Cap, but that wasn't a surprise.
  5. The example that always comes to mind for me is FF's 80s costumes: white trims, BLACK fill. It had been explicitly stated in the issues' dialogue among characters, albeit probably only a very few number of times. I'm holding my breath in hope that when the figures depicting this era are released, they're properly colored.
  6. This was exactly my line of thought when the figure was unveiled at SDCC. I'd been referring to that depiction of Thor as "Fat Thor," which I thought was direct and concise enough. I definitely agree that the Big Lebowski references and any derivative of the name "Lebowski" are far more applicable than "bro" (which to me, like in your case, mentally conjures negatively-associated images of the entitled, American, "frat" stereotype). I have a feeling it's a case of the latter from your list of possibilities (a generational re-purposing of an existing word that contradicts or negates the existing meaning and associations). I've just been presuming since SDCC that Hasbro was making an effort to distance themselves from The Big Lebowski for legal reasons. Maybe Hasbro was considering "Bro" as an interchangeable term for "Dude"? Like how a budget-brand version of "Frosted Flakes" might be called "Sugar-Coated Corn Flakes"?
  7. I'm honestly not too familiar with She-Hulk other than her brief tenure in the Fantastic Four and a few scattered appearances by her in other characters' titles, but I'm with you. If I was going to add a new ML She-Hulk to my collection, I'd prefer it to be one of the three you listed.
  8. I know it's been said thousands of times already, but She-Hulk in her FF uniform would have been a better fit. I suppose they skipped that iteration this time since the rest of the team is depicted in their modern appearance. With that said, I'm hoping we get a FF She Hulk whenever the figures of the team in their Secret Wars-era white & black costumes are released.
  9. Yeah, SS's legs in those pictures look like they're from the Hyperion/Sabertooth sculpt. I've probably overlooked it, but has the sixth figure in the FF wave been announced?
  10. I'm holding off on purchasing the Walgreens Dani Moonstar to include as my Wolfsbane in hopes of Hasbro releasing Wolfsbane in her Government X-Factor costume.
  11. Doctor Strange in his Silver Age costume has been on my wish list for several years now. I would be all over these two 2-Packs.
