  1. Hasbro charging premiums for a sticker that says "Spider-Man 60th anniversary"
  2. 55 dollars is a bit ridiculous for a 2-pack. I'm out, happy for anyone who picks this up.
  3. I agree, it's fine for a "basic" body, especially for army builders! Now, the Kate Bishop body on the other hand...
  4. 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.
  5. 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?
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. I'm admittedly a bit torn on this wave. It has a ton of characters that I want as a completionist; but given that Havok's accessory is being shown and no one else's are, I have to assume that everyone is coming with nil. Which is a bit of a massive bummer for Siryn and Vulcan. This is a wait and see scenario for me, if the price keeps climbing, but the number of extras decreases (While McFarlane and NECA remain relatively steady at their price-points), then I might end up taking a break from collecting.
  10. This is why I'm skeptical about the upcoming Siryn; if she doesn't ship with a screaming head (and inevitably 37 hands, so they can say they gave us accessories), then I'm going to pass on it. I'll just wait and buy the inevitable re-release. This is getting a little too common for my liking.
  11. Just in my opinion, Gwen's death has meant next to nothing since Spider-Gwen entered the 616
  12. I don't hate the new look, but it follows the trend of modern comic costumes that I despise. They almost try too hard to make it look realistic, or believable. The weird trend of characters in hoodies is annoying, and needs to go. Either over-designed, weird mash up of MCU style and comic style or stuff like this; yuck. These are comic books, let them just wear dorky spandex (T-bird's original costume was already perfect). I do like his new haircut though, it sets him apart more from his brother. Not a fan of the cover, it's almost 90s bad (though the art itself is actually good!). Either way, I'll read this, love me some X-Men
  13. I'm excited for these, but I really hope that Siryn has an alternate head (she won't, so it can be sold to us later, but still), and Vulcan had better have some energy effects; even the ones they've reused 18 million times would suffice.
  14. Honestly, and this is a bit of a random thing and it's totally not a great business move, but, I would love to see Pulse exclusives be sort of "made-to-order", so to speak. Basically, so they technically can't sell out, at least for army builders.
  15. 10- Demolition Man (classic) 9- Avalanche 8- Porcupine (classic) 7- Surge/Armor/Pixie (Really need some representation from this era of X-Men) 6- Marrina Smallwood 5- Namorita 4- Two Gun Kid 3- Swordsman (classic) 2- Devil Dinosaur (Throw in Moon-Boy and Moon-Girl, and I'm sold) 1- Justice Honorable mentions to the rest of the Runaways (once they actually got costumes/aliases) and Crystal
  16. I'm looking for Hasbro to reissue the Riders Ghost Rider in a Toybiz style retro card, as for whether it comes with the bike or not, who knows. What about a Ghost Rider wave with a build-a-cycle?
  17. More accessories. ML has fallen behind Lightning Collection, Classified series, and now the Hasbro Fortnite figures in terms of accessories. Female characters who don't all look the exact same, be that body mold or the headsculpt. (Please make the Asian characters actually looks Asian, for example)
  18. When they said "less plastic", I assumed that, eventually, all figures would start coming in the army builder style boxes, with the figure maybe in a foam tray. (It's not foam that I'm thinking of, closer to just fluff, I guess?)
  19. Best Accessory- Snapping Infinity Gauntlet Best Package- Deluxe Thanos Best Wave- Iron Man Ursa Major Best BAF- Ursa Major Best Deluxe- Infinity Gauntlet Thanos
  20. I, unfortunately, missed this one. It sold out the day before I got paid haha. Looks great though, really love the Domino
  21. My problem with this mold is that it was originally made for a teenage character, so Kate Bishop is too big and most characters on the mold are too small. Most of my issues with warped or wobbly joints have been on this body mold
  22. I really hope that we get a Lionheart one day. I'm not even familiar with the character, but her design is perfect. So toyetic
  23. I've not seen the film yet, but regardless if it's good or not. The MCU tried something that is a bit different for a change, that's awesome! Plus, we got a freaking Eternals movie! That wouldn't have been possible 15, or even 10, years ago. What's it matter how "woke" it is, it's an Eternals movie and that fact alone, makes me want to see the movie. I think that we, as comic fans, should go see the movie in droves, that way Marvel Studios will continue to put out works that have a different feel to them. (The punch-quip-punch formula grew stale a few years ago now).
  24. Given the way video games work now, I imagine some characters might be included as DLC (Nightcrawler, Morbius, Paste-Pot Pete, etc.)
  25. Just a quick thread; it dawned on me that after Armadillo, all we know about are exclusives and multipacks- at least until D'Spayre (presumably in the Dr. Strange wave). I imagine that they'll have a wave in Feb-March, especially if the DS wave ends up being pushed to closer to the movies release. Do you think any waves will drop between Armadillo and whenever the DS wave is?
