  1. I think they absolutely should postpone the Haslab project. Offering a niche item that would cost between 500-800 dollars during these times would look really tacky and insensitive on Hasbro's part, and I believe they're aware of that. As for SDCC....what SDCC and all company attendees should do is something akin to DJ D-Nice's recent and Awesome online Quarantine party; make the Con a total multi-media event where people at home can all tune in at once. Have people sign up and pay online for exclusives and set it up so that everyone who signs up gets one (like a kickstarter campaign) and scalpers can't hoard them. Upcoming movies should be offered to stream for online attendees. Give advance first-episode screenings for new shows, and something equivalent for upcoming video games. And yes, have everyone still show all their upcoming toys (have the official images, naturally, but have someone post regular photos of the prototypes as well). Presented this way, in ways that people can reasonably afford online, people can still have something really positive to look forward to.
  2. Glorious! I have no interest at all in Hasbro's Neo Anime/ Mecha version. In fact I'm not at all a fan of any attempt to make Marvel armored suits or robots look like Japanime mecha, like the Kree Sentry figure. The looks just don't translate well imo; give me the classics baby!
  3. Yes and a whopping Amen to everyone on JayC's list, especially Kang and High Evolutionary! The only amendments I'd add are:
  4. I'm confused; how does a white Doctor Doom count as a Vintage redeco?
  5. Gorgeous figure! I personally would have preferred the more plain 80's costume, but I understand why they went with this version. I'm still getting it for sure. The head sculpt looks absolutely fantastic! Actually, any of my fellow 80s children here get a 'Desperately Seeking Susan' feel from the face sculpt? Lol
  6. I preferred to see Galactus. Galactus accompanied with a nice, big, cosmic, Galactusy chair and with Air-walker and the Kirby-esque Alien Punisher Robot as pack-in figures personally. Sigh, one can continue to dream! However, a Byrne style Sentinel with an upgraded aesthetic similar to that Iron Studios statue might about do the trick. We'll see.
  7. EB Games in Canada has Iron-Man 2020 up for Pre-Order. I also just got my hands on Doctor Doom. Sweeet figure! One of the coolest action figures I've ever had, period!
  8. AIM grunt......easy re-release. Skrull Soldier.......no-brainer and easy tool for Hasbro Kree Soldier Hellfire club....easy release too Hand Ninjas....Black and Red
  9. Man oh man, what I wouldn't give to have a ML version of this statue. It looks amazing!
  10. Thanks dude. The non-BAF news is a relief. Now I just hope it's not a Walmart exclusive, lol.
  11. I'm soooo hoping that Kingpin is the Old-School version with the purple pants, especially because it would save me the hassle of having to track down all the rest of his BAF parts, lol.
  12. Yes, I agree now that I've spent some time looking at the packaged photos, lol. I totally agree about the boots, but I'm not at all surprised Hasbro did this. The blue, while thankfully metallic, is too light. The red plastic looks really dull too as you say, and I'm not especially keen on his windswept hair. And yes, his Nega-Bands are more like Nega-Bracelets. I'm not a fan of the body mold either, esecially how the shoulders in every version I have always tend to stick overmuch and scrape paint away. Sigh... But, it's Captain Marvel...I'm still excited to get him and I've literally been waiting at the edge of my seat every year for him to be redone since Hasbro relaunched Legends. For my part, I'll use some customizing tricks to sort out his Nega-bands, and I might even paint him up a bit and make a new, more 70s hair piece for him too, lol.
  13. Oh for Fluff sakes!! Sigh....figures. Well, at least Target ships to Canada now.
  14. Two words........CLASSIC STORM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!đŸ˜‚đŸ˜‚ At last!! At long last!!!! Iron Man 2020 was a total no-brainer, but man am I stoked to see him too! And Nimrod looks awesome! That Gwen Stacey figure looks great as well. And Black Tom Cassidy?? Hasbro is hitting all the right chords for classic characters, man. I just pray to ye Gods of plastic that Storm isn't some kind of exclusive!
  15. Captain mf'n MARVEL!!! Hell yes!!! I am one happy dude, man!! That is one very worthy tick off the bucket list!
  16. Oh man I really hope this is true! It would also be the perfect way for Hasbro to re-release Mysterio and the Hobgoblin. Fingers crossed!
  17. I've been an Eternals fan for a long time, longer than some of you here have been alive I'm sure, lol. I just want a movie that is fun, and feels authentic. If they can give the film the same sense of cosmic grandeur that Jack Kirby put in his comic panels, I will be one, great, big, happy, Super-Nerd. That is really all I care about.
  18. Hnnn, that's a pity. I really enjoyed the first film. I'd guess that his desire to make a more horror themed film is likely the source of the creative differences with Disney. MCU still has to lean a bit more towards 'kid-friendly' at the end of the day, especially given the success of that formula with their main films thus far. If that really is the reason, I think a TV series would be a better way to explore the horror aspects of that mythos, maybe with Clea as the lead character. Any how, hopefully his replacement can still give us a good and entertaining film.
  19. I'd be interested to see what they could do with Squadron Supreme, actually. Or perhaps an Old-School Moon Knight.
  20. A Marvel style Godzilla would be insane! Red Ronin even more so!! Yes, all you fellow fans of a younger vintage; Marvel Godzilla was a thing, and it was awesome! Well, we can dream, but you never know!
  21. Agreed! Heck, I think a straight re-release of the Diamond Select version would be in everyone's best interests!
