    Kind of worried about giving this show a chance after series such as Secret Invasion and She-Hulk. But then again the new Ahsoka series has been a redeeming series after watching Obi-Wan and Book of Boba.

    The first season was very good. Unless there was some kind of creative shakeup on the show, and I don't believe anything like that happened, this second season will probably be good, too.

    Are any of these on Amazon? No search has found any villains except Sandman and zero Spideys...

    I'm pretty sure the villains will be easy to obtain but seeing them sold out on Pulse makes me paranoid I should set a place holder preorder in place since, like normal,  I'll find these in stores well before and online retailers get them

    I think the Spideys sold out (I know Toby did), and Amazon doesn't want to show people sold out items when they search. Octavius and Goblin could have sold out already, too, but it could be possible that they're fan channel with Amazon excluded.  @toynewman @JayC can either of you confirm?

    Would’ve loved to get some Mindless Ones. Hard to imagine why they’d think it’s a good idea to make an army builder a BAF.

    Who knows? They seemed to already know wasn't a good idea, and there's an interview (with Boog Nice, I think) from San Diego  where Dwight indicates that they're planning some kind of variant for single release.

    Toytallica always does great work, very nice. And I would like to point out that the hat and coat on this figure, combined with the standard 'business suit' body buck, would make for a pretty cool looking Death Stalker. Let's start putting out some of Daredevil's  rogues gallery Hasbro. Someone who isn't Electra or Bullseye. 

    Death stalker wears a cape, not a coat. Also I'm not sure where that hat comes from, but it didn't come with the figure.

    When is HASBRO going to learn how to pack a full case?!  Put the Army builders as the double pack and they would most likely sell more full cases!  Why would anyone want to shell out more money for a figure that doesn't have a BAF part and you don't need two of them? 

    Hasbro has double packed the figure they seem to assume will be most popular. They usually do. They're not always right, but that seems pretty clearly what they're doing. It makes sense for retail. It makes less sense for online sales. You're right that it would make the most sense to double pack army builders, and you're right that they're really bad about that, but in this particular wave, there is no army builder.

    Maybe I'm thinking into this too much but Marvel will be releasing six of the Marvel Legends X-Men 97-based figures of Storm, Wolverine, Bishop, Gambit, Rogue, and Magneto, retailing at $24.99 each.

    You can also pick up the Marvel Legends X-Men 97 boxset, retailing at $44.99, that includes Storm, Rogue, Cyclops, Wolverine, and Gambit.

    So Marvel is throwing in Cyclops for the box set, but not including Magneto and Bishop.  Won't most completists just get the box set and then pick up Magneto and Bishop to save money?  Logically thinking, Marvel would have made a better deal by adding Magneto and Bishop to the boxset and charged maybe $64.99 retail.

    I'm reminded of the Cantina band figure situation in the Black series.  High priced deluxe figure with three instruments and swappable hands on Pulse and a lower priced version of the figure with three different instruments for retail. A lot of collectors figured out that if they wanted the whole band, they could save money by just ordering one of the higher priced deluxe figures and multiples of the regular retail figure.

     The CEO of Disney doesn’t confidentially leak publicly damning corporate strategy to a trade reporter. That’s just nonsensical. I mean yes, the executives weren’t named, so theoretically it COULD be anyone who works at a film studio. But if that’s the only criteria you’re just attributing the quote at random. 
     

    Please note, I’m not defending Iger. I’m sure he absolutely intends to wait the guild members out rather than give in because that’s what they’re all doing. I’m just saying there’s no reason to assume he said so to Deadline. 

    Don't get me wrong, I'm not attributing anything. That was someone else who did that. What I said was we don't know for sure who it wasn't, because we don't know for sure who it was, and that it could have been any studio executive. No one can be ruled out.
    But to be honest, I don't really give a damn who said it. It was said, it's disgusting, and it's doubtful that only one anonymous studio big shot wants to see that outcome.

    Nope. Bob Iger didn’t say anything like that. He did say that he thought the unions were being “unrealistic”, which is nonsense, but the quote about waiting it out until people went broke wasn’t him. 

    We don't actually know for sure that Iger didn't say that. None of the articles that quote that studio executive attribute a name. It could have been Bob Iger, David Zaslav, Tony Vinquerra, Ronald Meyer, Ted Sarandos, Greg Peters...

    Yes I knew that but the SAG accompanying strike aside the production company still keeps many writers on staff during the production of the film for emergency rewrites and reworks and as they were on strike for I think 73 days now I would have expected it to have effected this project sooner.

    It was affected. Rewrites and even improvising (because that gets rewritten into the shooting script) were forbidden by the WGA, but production wasn't going to shut down as long as there was a script and people to act it out.

    I think that's the Happy Hogan buck that he's on, isn't it? So, I'm assuming that he'll be the same size as Happy - which in my mind would be way too small for comic Wilson but might be pretty much right on for MCU Wilson.

    I assume that's the Happy Hogan buck, but I want to know for sure. I think the torso looks new. If he's the same height as Happy, he's too small. D'Onofrio is three inches taller than Favreau, and that buck is a bit undersized already.
