  1. I don't know, I'm leaning towards real. Look at the spider logo on his chest. Very clean and very deliberately Larsen-esque. Same with the eyes on the mask. Those're completely new, right? Now, assuming that mechanical eyepiece and headband are connected to each other, and assuming they lift right off of the head, you've got yourself the makings of an easy re-release for a straight-up Erik Larsen-style Spidey at a later date. And we all know that would be a classic Hasbro move. If it is real, I am in. I love absurd stuff and most things 90s Marvel. If it's a custom (and not enhanced with Photoshop trickery) then I am very impressed with the attention to detail, craftsmanship, the new webbing accessory, and the perfectly molded plastic tray in the bubble.
  2. I'm not looking this up because I've got work I should be doing, but I know at least Reed didn't begin as a freshman at State straight out of high school at a typical age. He got a bunch of advanced degrees from MIT and Cal Tech as a teenager before going to State. I can't remember if Ben did his air force stint before or after his undergrad. I'm sure it's all been retconned a few times since Byrne wrote those notes anyway, but there's probably enough wiggle room to keep those approximate ages if one wants to.
  3. I have them all pre-ordered with Amazon, and just got a shipping notice on Thunderstrike a few minutes ago. He'll be here tomorrow. In light of that, I seriously doubt they'll now wait until the 1st to ship Kang, Jocasta, and Falcon.
  4. You know, I buy so many of my figures online anymore that it doesn't really matter to me. Most of my figures are paid for sight unseen anyway. And if something is broken or incorrect, it's Amazon or Pulse's thing to fix. It is nice to see Hasbro trying to do something good and something that matters. I'd support it. Then again, if they go this route, I doubt many folks will continue to buy a copy of a figure to keep MIB anymore. Who wants to hang an opaque cardboard box on the wall of their toy room to admire? I never don't open a toy so, again, doesn't affect me negatively, but there would be at least some people who drop out altogether.
  5. Stopped in Walgreens while on a whiskey run tonight to try my luck and found a Silver Centurion Iron Man. He was the last one and obviously hidden behind some Halloween decorations for someone's later retrieval, but I could also tell that he was being displayed in the seasonal stuff and not with the other action figures. Wouldn't have checked there if not for @bashpics99's advice. Thanks for the tip! You made my night. Covington, Kentucky area.
  6. It's because she's not She-Hulk. Tatiana ---> Titania! It was right in front of us the whole time.
  7. Oh, good! Man, I remember back in the 80s when the prevailing wisdom was that female characters don't sell so don't sell female characters. Even in the 90s, I don't think I ever saw a Rogue or Jean Grey on the shelf. They seriously double-packed Lady Deadpool, though? Over Wolverine and Bishop? Crazy.
  8. Does anyone know what the situation is with Silver Centurion Iron Man? As in, is he supposed to be on store shelves yet? I haven't seen hide nor helmet, and I've been checking pretty aggressively at four different Walgreens near me in the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky area. I've seen every other Walgreens exclusive on a shelf in the past without checking this hard, so maybe he's not in stores in my area yet? But then I thought I heard of people as close by as Louisville or parts of IN getting him. Am I waiting for a bus that's already come and gone?
  9. Where the bad guys at, tho? You're right. That would be the smart play. Have they ever double-packed a woman before?
  10. Agreed. What an odd choice! The Torch is never depicted as translucent in any 2-D artwork. I think the way to go is an opaque figure in red & black with translucent yellow flames sculpted on. And some of the flames should be removable/snap-on like they've been doing. Please, no fiery "4" logo on his chest, either. Don't get fancy and don't overthink it.
  11. I'd be in, lineup pending. Heh, if they include a re-release of Spider-Man, the whole dang box set would be cheaper than trying to nab him on the secondary.
  12. She looks very nice, but I may take a break on this one. I definitely like the head better than the Green Goblin wave figure, and am so glad she's not wearing high heels this time around (what were they thinking?). Maybe if she goes on clearance at some point, I'll grab her for the head and the collar. Don't need the feet since Black Cat and Mystique can just trade. I love that cat accessory figure, though. He looks all coked up. My cat often has that exact same expression.
  13. Got my Storm & Thunderbird 2-pack today. It was delivered to my old apartment but, fortunately, I only live a few miles away. I was tied down with meetings when I got the delivery notification so I sent my wife on a secret mission to go swipe it off the building's front porch. She's a keeper, that one. Storm is tiny! Her fist hands are little baby fist hands. She's undersized in both height and weight all around, and then her fist hands and upper torso are undersized in proportion even to the rest of her. Her heads are both awesome. The rest of her is my biggest legends disappointment in a long, long time. And yeah, black armbands? What the hell? Thunderbird is great all around except no fists. Not one fist? Storm gets two heads, two capes, and six (!) hands, but ol' T-Bird doesn't get to throw a punch? Professor Xavier is a jerk!
  14. I got the impression that DC was fixing to do something very similar with their mess of a movie-verse(s) in the upcoming Flash movie. Though, maybe that's a rumor or I made it up. I've kind of given up on DC movies and am not paying close attention. Jamie Foxx is usually pretty great. I'd love to see him in the MCU, but not as Electro. They need to distance themselves from those Garfield Spider-Man movies as much a possible. The casting in those things (Capt. Stacy aside) were almost the only good thing about them.
