    Only if you believe they weren't lying. 'Cause between over 20 years of making these figures, never mind seeing what toybiz did when they had the license, and just flat out ignoring the team's own personal years of reading Marvel comics, there's no way to blame this sloppiness on the notion that Hasbro uses a Google search as "regular practice" to produce this line.

    What, did some google image show them how to eff up the Silver Centurion armor too? Was it google that told them Salma Hayek now has the body of some gangly pre-teen? 

    Even if there were some image that showed the SC armor like that, they know that's not how its been shown in the comics. Any comic fan that has even the slightest knowledge of Dr. Strange, knows full well the costume they've shown is wrong. That Quicksilver they puked up, are you kidding me? Take the head off the costumed body, you have no idea who that is. Google search, my @$$.....

    Uh-uh, no sale. It comes down to either lazy incompetence or deliberate "tweaks". Buy the figure that's almost right, and then buy it again, when they do it correctly down the road. 

    You know, I don't believe they were lying, but I also don't believe it was the entire truth, either. Google has no pictures of Karima with caucasian skin and light brown hair, and it doesn't explain those other things you mentioned. I, however, would not be at all surprised if using Google has become a more regular practice than going to actual artwork straight from the comics (or at least Marvel Unlimited). Why do ten minutes of research when you can do five? 🙄 One could call this lazy incompetence and get no argument from me, and there's surely other $#!@, too that goes into these boneheaded design choices: one of those "deliberate tweaks" would surely include Bobby Vala (or possibly Dwight?) deciding Kingpin just didn't look right unless he scaled out to about 7 1/2" feet tall.

    My Sentinel has been stuck in Georgia for three days?? WTF FEDex?!?

    some are coming in damaged? Wow.. how can that happen for the cost of these things? Wonder if a Hasbro has replacements? 

    Dang now I’m concerned

    There's probably a few more out there, but so far, mine is the only one I'm aware of with any genuine damage. A bunch of them have loose knees, which can be fixed by popping off the cap things (not as easy as some guys make it look) and tightening the screws.

  3. I will never stop beating this drum: The Kingpin figure(s) should not scale out to 7 1/2" tall. I love the figure by itself, but he looks too damn big with the other Spiderman and Daredevil characters. He should be the same height as Tombstone. Which reminds me...Tombstone is too short. Both of them should be about as tall as the "Jim Lee" Cable. Both should be all new. And if they made Tombstone in a suit, Hasbro could a tall suited body to work with.

    Yes Dan Yun is joining a live-stream late tonite but I would surely hope they didn't waste an entire day so they could reveal it there. Sure reveal it during the day and then talk about in more detail in a live-stream, but with only a couple days left in the campaign I really hope thats not why they havent revealed it yet.

    I would hope that, too, and @Jmacq1 is right that doing that could be a potential momentum killer, but can we honestly say that every decision the Marvel team has made for this Haslab campaign has made total sense?
