  1. I feel like it'll be Foom tbh, it's a bit out of left-field and not as obvious as Giant-Man or the Quinjet. Plus, I really hope it's not Giant-Man, because I know the 60s red suit Wasp will be a tier (a grail for me), and Haslabs aren't in my budget, lol.
  2. I wasn't super into What If? season 1, I thought it was a little uninspired. That being said, I like the look of this character (reminds me of Atlantis, somewhat), so I'm certainly intrigued.
  3. Thank you! Looks like I'm waiting until they inevitably release a classic bodysuit Widow on that body
  4. Hey, for the super articulated Black Widow, would anyone happen to know when Nat adopted that costume? I mostly stick with classic looks for my classic comic figures (60s-80s)
  5. What is the best flight stands for Marvel Legends? I have a few of the Hasbro Pulse stands, and they're...ok, but they seem too big and a bit unwieldy. Links appreciated!
  6. I'm inclined to agree, the ML team seems to have adapted the worst to the plastic-free packaging. GI Joe looks great with the artwork. Heck, they could just do comic art, and have the figure render on the back. ____ One area that I would like to see Hasbro improve upon is accessories. Figures like Speedball, $27.99 with zero accessories and on a reused body mold, simply should not be happening. They could've just painting the Kirby crackle effect piece a few different colors and called it a day. I'm of the belief that every figure should come with an alt head and one set of alt hands at least. Throw in an effect part or weapon, and I might be able to justify $30 for a fig.
  7. Hasbro has been doing some pretty neat things as of late (retiring body molds, new bodies, etc.), so which one is your favorite? For me; it's the new head sculpts. Gone are the days of every character looking identical with a different paintjob (well mostly...still room to improve) I think that whoever their new head sculptor is (Paul Harding, I believe), is absolutely killing it lately. What's your least favorite change they've made? I imagine that price increases are going to top many answers. The prince increases only bother me in the case of figures like Siryn, Darwin, Speedball, and others with no real accessories. $27.99 for a figure that comes with nothing is entirely too steep.
  8. Hasbro charging premiums for a sticker that says "Spider-Man 60th anniversary"
  9. 55 dollars is a bit ridiculous for a 2-pack. I'm out, happy for anyone who picks this up.
  10. I agree, it's fine for a "basic" body, especially for army builders! Now, the Kate Bishop body on the other hand...
  11. Not sure if others have pointed it out, but Controller is less reuse than it looks. The head is new, as is the torso, gloves (and cuffs), and boots (and cuffs). So it's not a straight up repaint of Thanos, just very similar.
  12. Personally, I think "animated" style figures (like the Legends X-Men VHS cel-shaded or the Lightning Collection Pink Ranger cel-shaded) look bad, the cel-shading just doesn't translate to 3D for me. What do you think? What are your unpopular opinions, related to action figures and action figure collecting?
  13. McFarlane. They may come with less accessories, but the detail is way better than on ML and they have unique sculpts, and for cheaper the price. These were the same price, one of the best looking McFarlane figs and one of the best looking Legends. No accessories for Sinister minus a BAF piece, which was reuse. Painted in four colors, and with some reused parts. Azrael has a unique sword, with a unique effect, a trading card, and a stand. Immensely better paint work (shading and the like) McFarlane, to my knowledge, has yet to increase their prices since this release. ML has increased theirs twice just since Sinister released. Hasbro has been giving us the bare minimum for awhile now, they're a huge company (in comparison to McFarlane), figures shouldn't be coming with nothing. Similarly, NECA Ultimates are $5-$10 than Legends now, and look 100x better, have a plethora of accessories, just as many QC issues, better paints apps, etc. On top of the fee NECA has to pay for licensing (so that'd be another couple bucks for the fig), they should be costing $10 or $15 more than they do. Hasbro is falling behind quite a bit, not just the ML team. Star Wars is kind of a joke at this point, and Power Rangers is literally 99% reuse (which is fine for the property) and they still have more accessories than ML. Only GI Joe seems to have found the balance between aesthetic, tooling, and accessories. EDIT: I don't even collect McFarlane figures (too much Batman for my taste), so I'm not shilling for good ole Todd. I'm being objective, the bargain is superior with McFarlane and with NECA.
  14. I don't mean to be negative, but the lack of a screaming head for Siryn and energy effects for Vulcan (you know those cheap ones that they've been using for almost a decade) is pathetic. In a line with so much re-use, and already ridiculous price increases, they can't even give us the bare minimum. I want the wave, I do, but the figures just aren't really worth the cost anymore.
  15. A price increase seems obvious, however, we keep getting less and less with the figures. If McFarlane and NECA can stay at their price points, then so can Hasbro. I've already been losing my love of collecting lately, scalpers and availability being some of the main reasons, a price increase certainly won't help matters. Heck, most of these body molds are years old. Some of the accessories are nearing that decade mark. If I'm paying $25 for a figure, it better come with more than just some extra hands. Paying $5 more for less plastic just doesn't sit right with me.
