  1. Oooh, that's actually a pretty novel superpower. Sounds like this comic might be fun.
  2. Wait... How is it supposed to be annual both in and out of comics, when the comics move at a much faster timescale?? If this is one year later our time, it's only been a handful of months in-universe since they held the last Gala.
  3. I think part of the problem is they made the eyes too big (specifically too large vertically) and emphasized the jaw a little too much compared to how it is in most of the art. The helmet looks great in art, but this was not the ideal realization of it in physical form.
  4. I feel like one could almost see it as a mistake for them to have gotten his Civil War/Homecoming costume so spot-on to his main classic costume, so that every subsequent attempt to change it up so that kids have to buy the new toy just feels unnecessary, questionable, and somewhat underwhelming and disappointing.
  5. ...Why does it seem to be Silver Centurion armor pieces laid over Mark 41 Bones? I'm just went back and checked this suit-up in the movie and Silver Centurion's underbits didn't really look like Bones, and definitely weren't colored like it.
  6. To me, the colors are not at all the problem. While it's blue, it's a much darker blue than pretty much any other Stealth Iron Man figure, and I think it captures the effect of the colors in the comic really nicely. My complaint is pretty much purely the complaint about the sculpt that others have. I think just retooling the forearms, shins, and chest to give those slanted ring elements rather than the straight ones of the Classic armor would'be been sufficient.
  7. Honestly, I think the problem is less the arms and more the torso. The lower torso, specifically, is too long, and it's making the arms look too short. A hypothetical "fixed" release would then only have to mold one new part, rather than like... 6-8?
  8. I think the costume design and especially articulation aren't ideal on this release.... but man, those friggin facial expressions are outstanding!
  9. Looks like it's more capable of standing in a good neutral pose than the first one, like most of the recent Revoltech figs.
  10. ...how exactly are Mephisto and Surtur anywhere near as undoable as that certain German historical figure? They're fictional versions of a devil, not a real someone who committed real actual atrocities.
  11. Agree. Marvel's always had "heroes fighting each other, usually for dubious reasons or a misunderstanding" as kind of a staple, but it was usually just when they first met, and then soon after they figured out what was going on and teamed up. This past 2 decades, they've really leaned into the hero vs. hero thing way too hard, especially in events. Often feels like characters aren't even friends anymore.
  12. I haven't been keeping up with the Disney+ series much since the disappointing finale of Wandavision (imo not disappointing for the reasons others have said here), but the costumes have all been really on-point, and this absolutely continues the trend. This costume looks great!
  13. I really hope you're right about that, because making Secret Invasion be Skrulls infiltrating like in the comics would completely fly in the face of what they've done and set up with the Skrulls and Kree previously in the MCU.
  14. Expanding on my previous post, I think the excessive amount of randomly applied detail on the gold limbs really hurts the figure when combined with the similar amount of detail on the torso, leading the whole figure to look kinda cluttered. If the limbs were much cleaner/the spots of detail were much much smaller and didn't overwhelm the overall gold limb look, it'd provide welcome contrast to and breathing room from the higher detail on the torso. I'd probably actually rather like the figure if that were the case.
  15. For me, the problem isn't so much the clear plastic but the random spots of dark grey on the gold parts, they look too random and prevalent, and almost make it look like it's corroding, or decaying or something. Or, more charitably, like leopard spots, which still doesn't look good on this. I feel like there was a much better way to add that kind of detail without disrupting the overall look of the gold limb.
  16. still baffles me how they made such a good US Agent costume but then messed it up by not actually coloring the white stripes on his chest as white like, they're THERE, but they're just left blue it doesn't even make sense if you try to be like "but MCU Cap often had less white on his costume" when the red and white stripes are in roughly the same area as where MCU Cap always had red-and-white stripes it really doesn't make sense to me, without the white stripes the costume just isn't quite there
  17. Fillion as Wonder Man does kinda make sense, since he like...... almost kinda technically played him in the MCU? In just his civilian form as Simon Williams? On some fake movie posters in the background of the couple of Earth portions if GOTG Vol. 2?
  18. Still don't get why Bucky keeps using the emergency magazine well on that M249 given it's notoriously unreliable compared to the actual belt feed system the gun is primarily supposed to use.
  19. You really think 25+ years of declining comics sales is attributable to anything as small and specific as "they did some interesting High Fashion-y outfits for a gala plotline in the X-books"?
  20. I'm just surprised at how Rachel's is like, literally pretty much fetish gear. All the others feel sufficiently "fashion show".
  21. That, and also people watching the show for the things it might set up rather than like, enjoying it on its own terms and engaging with what's actually in the show.
  22. Well then, you're in luck, because it's not just two heads and a grappling hook: It's two whole figures, with those accessories.
