    The figure was teased with the remote control, so I'm sure he does have that accessory.

    I don't think you're remembering that correctly. The Marvel team teased a hand holding a rectangular thing (it was a card) and talked about Gambit. A lot of people ignored that they had mentioned Gambit, and because it wasn't the easiest thing in the world to see, decided it was a remote control instead and *by sheer coincidence* guessed correctly that Morph was finally on the way, despite that tease having nothing to do with him.
    Morph comes with two extra hands (no remote in either) and an extra head.

    At the end of the day who is this plastic less packaging really for? Don’t think for a second that Hasbro’s decision was for the World.. more likely to appease the vocal minority that anyone who uses plastic is utterly evil.

    It's not even that. They want to look like they're doing something environmentally conscious, but the truth is that the plastic in the packaging for their plastic figures is the most easily and widely recycled plastic on earth. When it comes right down to it, it's about spending less money. With oil prices what they are, and plastics being made from oil, the only plastic they want to be putting on shelves is the toys themselves. And they would make them out of wood if they thought they could get away with it. With the cost of paper/cardboard rising, too, we'll see how far this plastic-free packaging thing goes, especially with many collectors hating it.

    Speaking of 50th anniversaries, HOWARD THE DUCK’s is next year so let’s goooo! 🙂.  
    Also Blade. Loved that 90s figure when I was a kid so would love to see him hit today’s Spidey retro card.

    We've needed a new Howard in Legends for years. It's kind of hard to believe Hasbro hasn't made a figure of him yet.
    With Blade, I assume you mean the "Vampire Wars" figure and not the main figure from the movie line.

    Wow.  And for $350...  I'm astounded that they didn't have QC stock of the figures proper.  That's terrible!  So sorry to hear it.

    Yeah, I was astounded, too. I was actually pissed off enough that I was ready to send it back, but my wife talked me out of it and convinced me I might regret it later. As crappy as that situation was with the quality control and customer service, I'm glad she talked me out of sending it back.

    I didn't order Galactus, but I am VERY interested to see how things are for people once they start getting them.

    Just out of curiosity, what's the story with your sentinel?

    So yeah. It arrived with a prominent scratch in the paint on the chest.  I went back and forth with Pulse CS who sent me to Hasbro CS who told me that I could send it back to them for a refund, but an exchange wouldn't be possible. I was told they had QC stock of some of the parts like hands, heads, and the pack-in figures but not entire Sentinel figures in case something was wrong with the body. I eventually chose to keep it and just display it battle damaged only.

    Female faces can certainly show expression, but i can't recall any figures with open mouth or screaming, gritted teeth is as close as you get. To me that suggests that hasbro is opposed to having screaming/yelling female figures for whatever reason.  Some say it makes the figure look like a blow-up doll... i'm not sure that is the rationale, but i'm sure there is some reason whether its a hasbro edict or something coming from disney or marvel

    There just hasn't been a really good reason to make a screaming female head until now. The hint from the December live stream of "We've actually made some extra pieces for her that hopefully we'll be using the next time we figure out a place to bring her out" certainly implies an upcoming open mouth head and likely a sonic scream effect that both she and her da can use.

    I guess they couldn't finish the animation in time that would look as good and as exciting as the first movie did.

    That would be my guess. We've all seen movies, shows, and games where the animation/effects had been rushed, and it's disappointing as hell. Waiting an extra six months sucks, but if they need the time to get things right, I'm fine with that.
