  1. 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.
  2. I'm excited for a new take on the character; superheroes should be allowed to retire. This allows for new stories to be told from a different perspective. Obviously, Danny will be back (don't get your knickers in a twist over a fictional character).
  3. Yo, I love those effects for Blizzard! Where'd you get those?
  4. Today, at Pulse Con, Hasbro announced that a new body mold (starting with Vulcan) will be replacing the Bucky Cap mold. The BC is probably the most prolific of all of the Marvel Legends body molds. With that being said, what were/are the greatest figures released on that mold? What are the worst?
  5. 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.
  6. Probably not, at least for most of the male figures. The joints on female figures tend to be the ones that I have trouble with; so for them, it's a maybe. I imagine that the Nova/Shriek body will become the new standard for the ladies in the future.
  7. On top of the market being awful right now, the movie delays probably hampered some of their release plans for the next 2-or-so years. I'm thinking, we'll probably get a tease for the wave after Armadillo, and maybe some of the anniversary figures. As a long shot, they might be intentionally downplaying expectations; in which case, I could see a couple of repaints/retools just to fill release slots (Cap tooled into US Agent, Vision into Vostok, and things like that)
  8. Now, I don't like exclusives in general, but I find that Walgreens ones are a total crapshoot to acquire. Being a small store, not known for their toys, they probably wouldn't even put out new figures if the older ones haven't sold. At least with GameStop, you can order the figures online (most of the time). If Walgreens exclusives are already EB Games exclusives, EB being owned by GameStop, then why not just roll them all together? It would make obtaining figures so much easier. Plus, Walgreens isn't exactly everywhere, it's mostly a Southern and Eastern US thing. What do you think; should Walgreens exclusives just become GameStop exclusives instead? Day 132 of not finding Nova or Quasar.
  9. Kind of a pointless thread, but I was surfing through classic designs and found this one of Mentallo. It looks perfect for the new "jumpsuit" mold. What do you think? What other characters could use this mold?
  10. As dumb as it sounds, this being a Doctor Strange movie and all, I have to assume that he won't actually be in the wave. Given that he's already in the Armadillo wave. I'm thinking we'll get an updated Mordo, an MCU America Chavez, maybe another Wanda, then a classic Clea, Sleepwalker, and maybe just a reissue of that Satana from the Thunderbolts set or something.
  11. I only do comic figures personally; but specifically the "classic" versions of the characters and the 90s X-Men roster. But I'm also something of a "character-completionist," if Hasbro puts out a new comic-based character, then I want it.
  12. Am I really going to buy another Captain America figure, just for the saluting hand? You're darn right, I am!
  13. Bit of a random question; what types of paints are best used to paint figures? What type of brush? I'm mostly just looking at touching them up, like painting Tigra and Beast's claws and things like that.
  14. Curiously, were the joints on your Tigra almost abnormally stiff? The arms and feet on mine were super tight, have a weird extra-sculpted white piece on the elbow hinges too.
  15. So, I've sort of been noticing this happening more often. Figures (generally female ones) are released with like 4 pairs similar of hands, and then that's it. No power effects, no alternate heads, no unique hands to that character. It's a bit frustrating, I'm glad that they come with so many hands, but Darkstar should never have been released without a power effect. Kind of a ramble of a post, I suppose. What do you think; should more figures come with actual accessories? Do hands even count as accessories or are they just a given?
  16. I don't know how the MCU managed to make the Eternals outfits look both over-designed and boring at the same time; it's actually impressive. Ah well, I'm happy for anyone that is excited for this wave and these figures.
  17. Got my Tigra from Dorkside today! Looks great, just wish her claws were painted white
  18. Pretty much every character pre-Juggernaut BAF wave, especially the women! Cyclops could do with a different body mold, but other characters need redone first imo. A better version of Captain Marvel (Carol) would be nice, the last release was still in the plastic-y face era. A classic red suited DareDevil for sure! Spider-Gwen and Miles need re-issued at the very least
  19. I voted Lockjaw, but I really want a Gorilla Man! I love the animal characters, they add some fun diversity to the shelf.
  20. I went with Griffin, I love the really dorky looking characters. I would also add the following to my personal wishlist for BAFs Awesome Android Rockslide (Which could reuse a lot of The Thing)
  21. I don't know about specific characters, but I think the male teenage buck needs to be used more often. I think it's only been used for Miles, Ultimate Peter, and Sam (Nova). Plus the actual teenage girl buck isn't used that often (not Kate Bishop), the smaller one that was used for Magik.
  22. 1. Classic Doctor Strange 2. Classic Luke Cage 3. Classic Iron Fist 4. Justice 5. Classic Crystal
