Ok reminder time:
Aether = reality stone
tessaract = space stone
Loki’s staff: mind stone
eye of agamotto: time stone
orb from GOTG : power stone
vision : soul stone? Or was he the mind stone?!?
Dang I was done with the movie props after the Eye but I’ve already go two plus the Gauntlet.. makes me think I should be getting these too... damn you Hasbro
these look nice, and I’m a sucker so: THESE WILL BE MINE
Vision had the mind stone. The soul stone was the one that was guarded by Red Skull on Voromir and could only be obtained through sacrifice.0
Losing the figure of Robbie in his human form essentially renders all the "street" parts for the car useless.1
$350? Ouch. Chrome brightwork and some detail painting on the chassis might have gone a long way to justifying that price. The tail lights and front turn signals being the wrong shape and the bumper guards being missing are a definite knocks against this, IMO. Gonna have to see what the stretch goals are, but unless they're spectacular, I doubt I'm going to be backing this.1
You guys aren't imagining things. Kate looked very good in the render and prototype (preproduction sample?) stages, and then Hailee's likeness was lost in production.

Love this figure, but Hasbro slipped up in two areas. One, where's is grey temples, it's part of his design and Hasbro didn't include some white paint for his hair. Two, Fireballs again, he doesn't shoot fireballs, stop giving people with energy powers fireballs.
His vest is too short, too. It doesn't need to go all the way down to his belt, although that looks best, but it actually got further away between the prototype and production stages. I was really looking forward to this figure, but seeing that not only did they not fix any of the above after revealing the proto, and that the jacket thing actually got worse, I cancelled my preorder and decided to hold out for a caped version. If it never comes, well...0

Yes, Isaiah Bradley is a must for our ML collections, and they will do one sooner or later. The thing is they better do the damn thing right and do their research. I swear if they put the damn thing on that ridiculous Sunfire buck I will loose my isht. The Reaper buck at the least or maybe even the Herc buck. He is a bit larger than Cap but the Reaper buck will work.
They wouldn't use the Sunfire buck. I think it's more likely they'll put Isaiah on the older Wolf Cap buck than anything else.0

To be honest, no-one throws the toys in the bin.
You'd be surprised.1

The fact that they are keeping the Retro line, shows that this is a PR stunt. 'We are doing our bit for the environment by having all our products being Plastic Free (except for the line which has the most plastic packaging)'
I think they fact that they've been boasting about their "plastic-free" packaging for toys that are made of plastic shows this has been PR spin the whole time. It's been about saving money with the price of oil (and plastic) rising higher, now that it's dropping, the cost of paper is going up a bit, and seeing the negative reaction to this whole thing, they're pulling back. I wonder if they've seen any kind of slump in sales on their collector lines. I'm usually an opener, but there are some themes that I had been collecting MOC and passed on a few new releases because of the new packaging. I'm sure I'm not alone.0

My hope is that Hasbro reverses course with plastic-free packaging when it comes to $25+ action figures. of course i would also like them to reverse course when it comes to charging $25 in the first place. I guess time will tell what impacts these changes have on sales. We can complain all we want but if people still buy them, won't matter.
They've already reversed course regarding retro figures across multiple lines. Sucks for now, but I have no doubts that within a year or two this whole bull___ thing will be over.0

So remind me, are Retro waves ONLY repaints? Could we see a Neo Classic redo in this wave?
Bombastic Bag-Man is coming on a Retro card, and he's not a repaint (no more than most figures and in some ways less), so no. Also who the hell knows? Sure? Maybe?0

I believe this is based on the Jim Lee/Rob Liefield art from the early 90's.
It is. Somebody found some Liefeld artwork that looks almost exactly like this and posted it over on another forum back when Toad here was first revealed.0

It’s all good, that was definitely me. To be fair I tried exactly that but something went wonky on my iPhone browser and it kept deleting the first quote/response. So I gave up and just posted twice. Sorry, I’ll keep things tidier from now on.
The phone site never seems to work right for anyone.0
I'm not calling out anyone by name here, because this applies to everyone. That + button next to the Quote button is the multiquote function. Anyone responding to multiple posts within the span of a few minutes should use it instead of stacking posts.0

Yeah the biggest joke is that they are actually calling this a 2 pack, that's just total jabs at collectors, popping in that re-packaged Spider-Ham does not warrant this being called a 2 pack, we know because you put this as a accessory in a pack with Gwen already.
Anyways this is a pretty nice figure, it captures the look from the film very well, and it's nice to see a bunch of new parts here, at least effort was made on the Noir, I wouldn't buy this myself, but it's a much needed figure to round out anyones ITSV display. I'm happy with the Comic Noir we got, I'll stick to that.
You'd think so. It's so close to looking right out of the movie, but the lack of buttons on the shirt bugs the hell out of me. Combine that with the inflated price, and the plastic-free packaging, and I passed on it, ending my Into the Spider-Verse collection with only three (technically four) figures. I've been keeping the others MOC, and I'm not about to open them all to display with an inaccurate and overpriced figure, no matter how good it mostly looks.0
@JayC I assume the big white box here is supposed to be the tik-tok video from the main news page. It doesn't seem to be working.0

Spider-Man Noir is one of the few figures I've got on pre-order. Hope it ships this month
I cancelled mine. I'd been collecting the Into the Spiderverse figures to keep MOC, so the plastic-free packaging meant that Noir wouldn't match the others. Couple that with the lack of buttons on the shirt, and cancelling was an easy decision.
I do hope that you get yours soon, and that you're very happy with it, tho.0
Their Into the Spider-Verse figures have looked really good until now. I wonder why they suddenly dropped the ball with Gwen. Portrait really doesn't look anything like her from the movie.0

I really like how Shulkie looks with tied hair but her regular hair is too rigid and unnatural even though it is comic accurate, sometimes her model looks nice enough other times she looks like a weird tv commercial 3d model, I would rather wait another 6 months and get better CGI work than get it right now in such rushed way with CGI that is too unnatural and with overworked and underpaid VFX artists more time would be helpful in that regard too.
I don't think the CGI would ever look better as long as it's on Disney +. Apparently it takes movie money to make a hulk look good, so until Jen shows up in a movie, this may be the best it can get.0

I got McFarlane Batmbolies for less than £30. Just saying that a car to accomodate a 6" fig shouldn't be £300. Unless the haslab includes 3 other GRs, a Horse, a bike, Mephisto, Blackheart.
I assume it will be more detailed than any Batmobile Todd has made, and I doubt it'll cost that much. I could also see them doing a set with not just the Hell Charger, but also Johnny's bike, Danny's bike, and yes, maybe even a horse. Riders as add-ons, probably, although that would suck, but we'll see.0

I am not paying £300 for a god damn Car that I can get for £40-£50
Can you? They're usually diecast, but I've never seen a 1/12 scale Charger going for less than four or five hundred bucks. There's plenty of chargers in 1/18 and 1/24 for significantly less, but 1/12 is much rarer and much larger. The Hell Charger would actually even need to be a little bigger than 1/12 to fit a Legends figure.0

Maybe though Cassie was already a teenager in Endgame, unless they are going with an adult Cassie
Kathryn Newton is five years older than Emma Fuhrmann, so maybe. Of course, twenty-five-year-olds play teenagers all the time, too.0

No one is going to suddenly get off the fence and back that car based on just a tease.
