  1. Simple, rank the following retailers based on generally how easy it is to find an exclusive with them. This doesn't have to be exclusively Legends. Walmart Target Gamestop/EB Games Walgreens Best Buy Amazon Pulse For me; my area of Southern Ohio tends to have awful distribution. Every retailer is generally pretty barren, in my experience. So, I'm pretty sour on exclusives in general.
  2. The reason I ask is because, we're completing the core Winter Guard this year and Red Guardian is about 6 years old at this point. So, it's impossible to find anywhere that isn't a specialty shop. Do you think Hasbro would reissue the figure or just make a new Red Guardian? Personally, I'd be fine with either option; but if we get a new figure I'd like it to be one of these two suits
  3. Just to add a tiny bit of fuel to the West Coast Avengers assumption; the sleeves on the new Lady Deathstrike could easily be reused to make the classic Mockingbird suit
  4. So I recently picked up that 2017 Ares figure at a local toy shop, and I'm torn on how I feel about him. Overall, it's a striking figure with an imposing presence on my shelf. But it's also just a re-release of a 10 year old BAF with new paint apps and an axe and awful articulation + gross hips. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad that the character got put back out there as the original was notoriously tough to find. Would you have preferred a new figure all around? Is there hope for a new Ares figure? Is this one of the more "lazy" things that Hasbro has done?
  5. Just sort of gauging interest/ranting about BAFs as a whole. Personally, I feel that with the rise of scalpers and a lot of stores (especially in certain areas) that the BAF format has struggled of late. It also seems that unless you complete a BAF quickly, you likely never will, most BAFs before 2018 are pretty impossible to buy online without donating an organ. I've completed 4 in my time (Warlock, Man-Thing, Sasquatch, and Wendigo) but I've just decided to completely give up on Sandman, Rhino, Allfather, and Absorbing Man. I like the gimmick, no argument here, but too often is an awesome BAF stuck in a mediocre wave or vice versa. On top of that, sometimes the individual parts skyrocket for no real reason (Allfather legs, everything but Rhino's torso, or the 2015 Abomination head). I also like the deluxe format, it allows Hasbro to release more figures and those figures would have generally been highly sought after. Seriously, imagine if MODOK or Maestro were BAFs. What do you think, do you still get the thrill out of Build-A-Figures? Or should Hasbro attempt to move away from the format (maybe to give more accessories)?
  6. Any news on the Walgreens Nova? Has it hit the States yet? I see it on Ebay from Canada and Taiwan, but I don't want to pay 60 bucks for a new figure
  7. Give me a sprawling 3 3/4 inch Looney Tunes action figure line (Never realized how many properties need great toy lines)
  8. I'm probably in the minority here but I would also like a Dynasty Warriors line A Mortal Kombat line that isn't expensive and doesn't give up after making 7 figures
  9. I would also love a Soul Calibur line of figures, crazy that there's so few SC stuff out there
  10. Hey, i forgot to take a picture, but my local Walmart still has a Janice Lincoln Beetle figure. Box was banged up a bit, but still in package
  11. I imagine the Shang-Chi will go the same route, I'd recommend everyone pick that up sooner than later
  12. Sort of on topic, does anyone know if Marvel is able to create merchandise for characters like Ultraman, Predator, or Conan? I imagine that the answer is no, but a Conan ML figure seems possible
  13. I mostly steer clear of Mattel, I used to collect their WWE figures, but something about them just isn't that great. I'd love to get into MOTU, heck i've thought of getting into Mythic Legions or even Vitruvian HACKS.
  14. I agree, the weird scaling for the line bugs me a lot as well. Batgirl should not be the same size as Batman. I have a DC sized hole in my collection, and McFarlane just doesn't do it for me.
  15. Okay, this might not be okay on the forums (feel free to remove if it isn't), but it's still loosely related to Marvel Legends and Hasbro. What are some other properties (from any medium) that you would like to see have a action figure line with the same scope as Marvel Legends? Not exactly the same style, but the same aesthetic I suppose. I would love to see more video games get more affordable toy lines, Mass Effect springs to mind
  16. Alright, I just noticed his little webs for the first time. I retract my statement. I concur for Nightcrawler!
  17. Snagged Shiklah and X-Man off of Amazon today (almost done with Sugar Man now!) Also, the Shuri/Klaw pack is pretty cheap on Amazon as well; should I snag it?
  18. Specifically a repaint of an already existing character with very minimal new tooling required. For me it's the Amazing Fantasy 15 Spider-Man with the red and black rather than red and blue. (Sorry if image is low quality)
  19. I've had this idea for awhile, figured that I'd share it. What if Hasbro released a classic Doctor Strange as a deluxe figure, but with the hook that he would come with a cloth cape with a posing wire? I feel that Strange's cape needs to be unique from all other figures. If NECA can include posing wires and charge $29.99 for a more detailed sculpt, then Hasbro can do the same for a less detailed one. Obviously he could also come with some alternate hands and magic effects and maybe an alternate head What are your thoughts on this idea?
  20. I do primarily despise exclusives, but I think the distribution is totally random. I have about 3 Wal-Marts near me and I only found 1 Cap between the three, yet each of them still had a dozen of those Grey Black Widow figs from last year. Wal-Mart might be pretty bad with exclusives, but Target, and Walgreens are worse. (Also GameStop and Best Buy, if you do Black Series)
  21. I'm surprised they did Charles and not X-23 for that two pack. I don't do movie figures, but she seems like a notable gap in an X-Men movie display.
  22. This is probably obvious, but I imagine that Hasbro isn't able to reveal the Eternals or Shang-Chi waves until we get a trailer for the movies (which we probably should have had by now). Sorry for double post
  23. This could be a blessing in disguise; if enough people only want the BAF, that would leave more sets available on retail store shelves
  24. Weird that Darkstar comes with gripping hands, would have preferred an energy effect. Alas, it's an awesome figure and wave
