  1. Got my pre-order in at Pulse as well. 63.59 after tax for me. Dunno what's up with that. I mean, I'm definitely more psyched for the Hulk, but that Wolverine looks pretty great, too! He's certainly good enough to knock the old Toybiz Face-Off version out of his slot in the display rotation. What's the deal, is everyone just sick of Wolverine figs? I'm not there myself just yet, but I could certainly understand. Every time I see a new Deadpool or MCU Iron Man thing I just roll my eyes and thank Hasbro for the wallet rest.
  2. I don't have anything to add to this. I just wanted to quote you out of context. I'd be equally thrilled with either version of Storm or Iceman! My money's on the "Jim Lee" versions, though. And Tarot, in seriousness, I do agree with your sentiment. I'd love to see some nice versions of the original team! That box set from a few years ago did nothing for me.
  3. The only thing that kept me from voting for Dragon Man is my apprehension that Hasbro just doesn't have it in them to make him big enough, even as a BAF. I'd much rather they do a standalone release like with the recent DoFP Sentinel. One of those guys a year would be great. I've got a long list of figures who would just get shortchanged (heh) as a BAF: The Stranger, Ultimo, Atlas, Giganto, Fin Fang Foom, The Living Monolith, The Living Tribunal, certain Spider-Slayers, Terminus, Yellowjacket, Wasp, Titan, Shuma-Gorath, Fafnir, and Goliath (Clint Barton). Still plenty of BAFs to do at a bigger, if not 16-18 inches tall size: Uatu, Awesome Android (with hat, tie, and briefcase), Mark I Sentinels, certain other Spider-Slayers, Nimrod, Mangog, Dreadnoghts, Stegron, MODAM, The Super Adaptoid, Proteus, The Supreme Intelligence, etc.
  4. LOL, I had to watch it a second time to make sure the soldiers actually turn their guns on the helicopter instead of the person who is clearly controlling the helicopter.
  5. I wish the spider on his back was red. I think that any additional white on a Spider-Man uniform dillutes the impact of the eyes.
  6. Yeah, I remember your post as well as their reply. Communication does seem to be an ongoing issue with them. I'll wait and see...
  7. This one was a little easier than the rest, but there were a few hard cuts. My picks: Annihilus Diablo Dr. Doom The Mad Thinker Molecule Man Mole Man Psycho Man The Wizard
  8. Wow, that's a haul! Me too, though I'm not expecting them before this time next year.
  9. Yeah, he's such a good illustration of how much damage the widespread fear and hatred of mutants can impact one man on a personal level. I'm re-reading the Mutant Massacre right now and it's really heartbreaking to see him be so casually accepting of Artie Maddicks when Leech brings Artie around to The Alley for the first time. Caliban's social development has been severely retarded (as evident by his attempt to kidnap a child bride), but he's clearly got a good heart. Every day of his life is necessarily about survival for this guy. That paradigm as well as X-Factor's naivete is masterfully underlined when he later betrays them to Apocalypse during the Fall of the Mutants. That moment is one of the most shocking and devastating moments from my childhood comic-reading years.
  10. Looks like they sent all of the surveys out. I got three of the Deluxe UCP Soldiers (for the Hulk to smack around, natch) and a Deluxe Army Alpha.
  11. Is there any idea what the MSRP is supposed to be on the Hulk/Wolverine 2-pack? I was expecting $39.99, but the BBTS pre-order is for $62.99. I know there's a bit of a markup, but twenty-three dollars? Are the 80th anniversary releases going to be more expensive than regular Legends?
  12. How would you have jazzed him up? I like his head, which is about all they really had to work with sculpt-wise. His helmet is sufficiently goofy and his face has some character/expression.
  13. Got my Caliban case from Amazon today (though the shipping label says Entertainment Earth). I'm spacing them out and opening one a week. I let my girlfriend pick who this week's was and she went with Beast because she thought he looked cuddly. This guy is astonishingly well balanced. The poses he can hold unassisted are crazy!
