  1. 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.

    All fair points. To be honest, when they inevitably re-release this figure a better paint scheme and a few bells and whistles I think my opinion of this guy will sour a bit.

    bad enough a good portion of MCU collection had to be bought multiple times to correct an earlier release or improve one, if they start double dipping on comic figures I’ll have no choice but to become more discerning with buying figures that will obviously get a better one down the road

    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.

  3. 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

  4. 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

    Anyway as for my wants, I'll echo Lord_Scareglow's call for more new characters and more villains. X-side of things especially. We're getting a steady stream of at least one new X-Men wave per year, but I'm always a little disappointed when they inevitably turn out to have at least a third of the line-up taken up by redos of A-listers like Wolverine, Cyclops, Storm or Magneto. I understand why (makes perfect business sense), but I want to eventually see some of the Generation X kids, especially with Synch recently seeing a resurgence in the modern comics.

    I'd list my hopes for MCU characters but let's be honest, that's about as close to a sure thing as one can get in Marvel Legends. So my desires (Echo, Wong, Agatha Harkness, ect.) are less if and more when. Though I would also like a comic Echo figure as well. 

    And as ever, really want Robbie Reyes. Next year would be perfect with the Ghost Rider anniversary promotion Marvel is running.

    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?

    I dig Sue’s hair and obviously her face is busted, but my biggest gripe is the weary body mold they used for yet another classic legendary super babe. Like dude… come on. I don’t care about this consistency argument either — if it’s an upgrade from this twig, then heck ya bring it on.
    But Reed looks fine, kinda as expected. The coat is a nice touch but they know everyone hated those rake hands the 1st time but screw it… throw them in again anyway to express his awesome abilities!! 🙄

    I love classic F4 and these are my favorite uniforms so there’s that. But these 2 aren’t very impressive. Will likely wait for discounts.

    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

  7. 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).

  8. 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?

    Since they're fictional, they hardly age, therefore they don't have to be "retired" in order for new stories to be told. Marvel just needs to hire writers that actually know how to write good stories about well established & loved characters such as Danny Rand/Ironfist. Creating a new "diverse" character to replace him will hardly make me wanna buy & read their comics.  Then when sales are tanking 4-5 issues later, they hype up the miraculous return of the new & improved Danny Rand/Ironfist who can now transform into a Dragon or some other stupid gimmick they think the fans will find "kewl". Here's a unique concept, how bout creating a new diverse martial arts character to interact with Danny? How bout bringing back the original White Tiger/Hector Ayala & the sons of the Tiger, Mucho diversity right there! 

    Because if Marvel did introduce a totally new and diverse character, then people would STILL complain and talk about how manga outsells comics (which they are, but not because of what colour a fictional character is) or how comics are failing (which they aren't).

    You don't have to read this "SJW Woke" comic, it might not be meant for you, which is okay. If the new Iron Fist is South Asian, then some little kid in Nepal could pick up an Iron Fist comic (or read it online) and see themselves in this universe and fall in love with comics; just like we all did when we were kids. That's why diversity in comics is important. Is Marvel really bad at diversity? Yeah, generally. But that doesn't mean that diverse characters shouldn't be included, it's comics, it's something for everyone.

  10. Am I crazy, or did Hasbro change one of their questions? I don't recall the Comic-Con question being one of their teasers.

    Either way, I'm 50/50 for most of these. D'Spayre looks cool, the anniversary line is meh (looking forward to Toad selling out in .26 seconds), Vulcan and Knull both look pretty good. I'm curious to see how well they'll execute Maggot, I can pass on the repaints and I don't do MCU stuff.

    Zemo though; looks awesome. I get that it's a business and Hasbro are paid to have exclusives with retailers, but some Walgreens just don't stock anything, and you can't order the figures online. It'll be 20 bucks in store, if you can find it, and 40+ on eBay. Same reason I don't have Nova, or Moon Knight, or Quasar, I'm not going to pay double (or triple!) the price for a figure that's already barely worth the asking price. I really hope Walgreens gets stuff sorted out, and online orders can resume; either that, or at least offer them on Pulse.
