  1. Kingpin (.5" to .75" too tall)

    Classic Nick Fury (the head on that figure is great, but the body should have been from Spider-Man UK)

    Blade (The dark blues on the MK figure was an odd choice, the Kitana was just too generic, and the lack of a gun disappointing. I still don't like it, but I can accept the sculpted bits of hair on the top of the modern head, as artists have never been able to decide whether those pointy bits are hair or tattoos. No open mouth or at least a snarl to show off his fangs was also a disappointment)

    While I was pleased to see Valentina Allegra appear on screen, and I do love Julia, she isn't who I would have chosen for the role. Its odd that they (american movie studios) use so many foreign actors for these gigs, and then when the character really should be from another country, they use an American.

    A big part of the reason for hiring actors from other countries for American roles in big studio movies is that most of them aren't SAG-AFTRA members, and studios can pay them less than the negotiated minimum salaries. I don't believe it works the other way around, so that one is harder to explain. But often the actor is someone like Peter Dinklage, who the producers are super happy to bring onto a project and/or the director has been hoping to work with for years.

    I really hope that the Kraven movie bombs, and Sony reconsiders all of these poorly-thought-out movies that focus on random villains and supporting characters. A Madame Web movie (except she's young and hot!)? They're making bad choices that would be comedically terrible, if I didn't care about the characters. We're being deprived of Spidey movies with a variety of his villains because of this Sony goofiness. 

    Cassandra Webb passed on the Madame Web mantle to Julia Carpenter, so there is a young and attractive Madame Web in the comics. That said, the likelihood that movie or Kraven will be any good are incredibly slim. Venom should have been a flop and Sony seems to have learned the wrong lessons from Morbius.

    yikes God bless that man. until there is an actual story about how this happened, i can only assume that there was an eclipse that caused the snow plow to go into maximum overdrive.

    Technically there is. This is what the Washoe Sherriff's department said in a statement:
     

    “Mr. Renner went to retrieve his PistenBully, or snowcat — an extremely large piece of snow-removal equipment weighing at least 14,330 pounds — in an effort to get his vehicle moving,” Balaam said at the time, noting the Hawkeye alum was helping a family member get a “stuck” car out of a snowbank. “After successfully towing his personal vehicle from its stuck location, Mr. Renner got out of his PistenBully to speak to his family member.”

    He continued: “At this point, it is observed that the PistenBully started to roll. In an effort to stop the rolling PistenBully, Mr. Renner attempts to get back into the driver's seat of the PistenBully. Based on our investigation, it's at this point that Mr. Renner is run over by the PistenBully. … The investigation is ongoing, however, we do not suspect any foul play. I'll repeat that: We do not suspect any foul play. We believe this was a tragic accident.”


    Anyway, I'm glad that every update since the accident has been a positive one.

    Yeah, to me anyway, neither the face sculpt or the mechanical leg on the new Forge look nothing like the old one. The leg looks better, the face not so much. Even the gun is new, or I at least I haven't been able to place it from anywhere else yet.

    Forge's gun is a repaint of rifle from the AIM soldier in the Mandroid wave and has shown up a few times in the line between now and then.

    One thing that needs to be fixed is the way that every review of a figure gets it's own thread. It isn't needed and I haven't seen any other forum do it. It makes the news forum full of repetitive threads, which gets confusing and forces other threads off the front page. It doesn't help that they all have the same title. The reviews threads should be all in one thread for that figure or even have a new section for all the reviews. 

    We have a separate section for reviews over at TNI. Sounds like we may need one here.

  7. We’re looking to improve the forums to make members more likely to use them and to attract new members, as well. What new features, improvements to existing features, or new sections would make the forums more attractive to you and what do you think would make the forums more attractive to new members?  Legitimate constructive criticism is also welcome, but please keep in mind that this survey is about features and sections. Tell us what you’d like to see!

    Havent yet seen it but I suspected it might be like this. Almost watched it but Andor took me in and that is some killer writing/acting on that show. Tough act to follow for any, but it sounds like Guardians cant even try. Who knows.....

    It's James Gunn leaning all the way into silliness but keeping it (almost) family friendly and generally pretty sweet. This will be enjoyed by some and not at all by others. Just the way it goes.

    To clarify what I wrote was based off of information that came from the source.  It's not a direct quote, as the source stated:

    "While it probably won’t be as dark as the previous Blade pics, Insiders say Marvel is looking to go with a darker tone on this film than other MCU projects have been in the past."

    They don't want the movie as dark as previous Blade movies, but they want a darker tone than other MCU projects.  Based on that directly, it's hard to determine how "dark" Marvel will be taking this movie.

    I wouldn't have expected Guillermo Del Toro level gore and the F-word flying every other minute from this movie, anyway.

    Along with their other neglected areas, hasbo needs to update these suited civilian bodies. They were on the right track when they correctly realized they'd need a new buck for the Happy Hogan figure. Of course for female characters as well. The jeans and leather jacket worked perfectly for Jessica Jones. Misty Knight would be great in jeans, knee boots, and turtle neck with shoulder harness. Let's see some more thinking and execution along those lines. 

    The need to fix the ****ing dress shoes. That they're not flat is a huge problem.
