  1. -Iceman -Psylocke -Sabretooth -Magneto -Rogue Anybody else is icing on the cake
  2. Aside from maybe that hooded second head for the DST Wanda, these all look really good. And that Hot Toys Wanda is kind of incredible. I doubt I'll buy it, but I'm very impressed.
  3. This was my thinking, too. My issue was that these threads were started and then dropped. I didn't need a payoff, but I would have been happier with the finale if they had continued to string us along. So, while I didn't need or expect him to say "I'm Pete Maximoff, but the other X-Men call me Quicksilver, and I'm from an alternate universe," it felt like having something yanked away without something like another mid-credits scene, or even a scene before the credits with Wu knocking on his door and an exchange along these lines... Pete/Ralph: *opens door* Can I help- Oh, it's you. Agent Wu: Mr. Bohner. I was worried about you. Pete/Ralph: Ha ha. Bohner. Agent Wu: What are you, twelve? Please stop laughing at that. Pete/Ralph: I'll stop laughing when you stop calling me that. Agent Wu: You know I can't do that. Not yet.
  4. Looks like they ditched the holes in the forearms. Not sure how I feel about that.
  5. With rumors that Jodie Whittaker is leaving Doctor Who, I had hopes that Gemma Chan could take over the role, but I had thought, "How is that going to work? She'll be so busy with Marvel stuff." But there isn't going to be another one of these. Her schedule is going to be wide open. This has one and done written all over it. I'm trying really hard to keep an open mind, but I really can't imagine at all that this movie or these characters will be a hit.
  6. Speaking of updates, if Hasbro finally makes Multiple Man in that X-Factor Investigations look, but reuses that same tired-ass Jim Lee style trench coat instead of the one from the Netflix Punisher or even a new jacket, I'll be kinda pissed. I also kind of expect them to totally do it.
  7. I'd definitely get Terror, Bi-Beast, and those versions of Multiple Man and Brother Voodoo.
  8. Pretty underwhelming trailer. Creepy animation and lame jokes. And didn't this get cancelled when Jeph Loeb got fired and Marvel Television was dissolved? So, if any viewers actually manage to become invested in this thing, that first season is all they get, right? Sounds fun.
  9. If they wanna make Fortnite versions of Blade and Thor, I'll buy 'em. Maybe Black Widow, too.
  10. -The Star Wars team has recent figures in the Black Series that are single elbow but have the same ROM of most double elbows, and I'd like to see that incorporated, since Dwight seems so reluctant to give female figures double elbows. -We just got a new female body for Omega Sentinel. It doesn't have a shitload of reuse value, but I think it counts. -Also, LOL.
  11. Looks pretty good. I hope Hot Toys doesn't forget that they still have a bunch of Peter Parker Spider-Man PS4 suits left to go. Or they could just make the Noir suit and stop, and I'll be happy.
  12. Thinking hard about Red Skull. If I get him, I'll probably be swapping the Red Skull head from Onslaught or one of the earlier comic heads from Iron Skull or the trenchcoat version. The headsculpts the figure comes with need a wash like there's no tomorrow. Maaaaaybe, I'll try a wash, myself. Maybe.
  13. The Guardians cover is pretty cool. I think I'll wait to see if a Punisher cover is revealed.
  14. Prebandaging one's fingers (an old model builders trick to reduce x-acto knife wounds) can significantly reduce the pain involved in plugging the neck pegs into those sockets. I love how weird and creepy this thing is, and it's a really good figure. Aside from some funkiness with those necks, it's very well articulated and easy to pose, and it stands surprisingly well. Very well, actually. I have it on the shelf with Nimrod and Omega Sentinel.
  15. I doubt that. They wouldn't want to risk offending Marvel, especially to cover their butts. If they address it, they'll cop to the mistake but won't acknowledge how or why it happened, with Dwight or Ryan saying something like, "We don't really know how this happened. This slipped through the cracks somewhere, and we'll do our best to make sure this doesn't happen again." I'm not sure if "We're sorry," or "Our bad, guys." would be added (definitely one or the other), so I'll leave it at that.
  16. I am 99.9% sure that I have every comic book issue in which Karima has appeared. Out of hundreds of appearances, I have seen her occasionally given a lighter skin tone (including the variant cover of X-Men #200, where she has been clearly miscolored as caucasian but still has black hair), and I have seen her occasionally given brown hair. The alternate head of this figure is the only instance I have seen of the character being depicted with a caucasian skin tone and brown hair at the same time. Marvel just doesn't appear to have published any material, coloring mistake or otherwise, that matches it. Whether this happened at the prototype phase at Hasbro HQ or during production at the factory, this is a mistake on Hasbro's part, plain and simple.
  17. We're on almost exactly the same page about this, but I have to disagree with one thing. The head, and the head alone in that picture, and the alternate head for the figure would look EXACTLY the same if Hasbro had painted it the same colors. Also, when Chris Bachalo began drawing the, he kept that same design (from the neck up) but drawn in his style. He also gave Karima Shapandar/Omega Sentinel a new body design, which is pretty much exactly the same design the figure has, save for bust size (and a couple other minor details). I won't repost the pic here, but it's the first one in the group I posted Tuesday. Otherwise,
  18. Exactly. They were good figures. Great figures. By today's standards they're not. I don't think it's nostalgia at all to say, "Man those were great...for their time."
