  1. Well, I mean, how could you really know? She might look like Eleanor Roosevelt.
  2. Folks on Facebook are saying Walgreens put it up early and they all sold out before 3:30. I don't know if that's true or not, but I was trying from about 3:25 to about 3:40 and got nothing. Good luck.
  3. Are you kidding me? Of course it's not working. Why would it work? Why would I be able to find Red Hulk anywhere? Why would Wal-Mart not cancel my black Widow pre-order from January? I'm generally a positive guy, but how hard is this!? Why is it so frustratingly impossible!? Knock it the hell off with the exclusives! Especially if you can never, EVER seem to get them to the consumers! There's a toy. Here's my money. WHY IS THIS SO DIFFICULT!? Forget it. I'm not buying him now.
  4. A Celestial. Isn't Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 supposed to be out in 2021? The timing would be right. It could be many things. Heck, there's no reason it couldn't be a new Galactus or Fin Fang Foom. I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around that sentinel being a build-a-figure. From the looks of it next to (or a little behind) those six-inch figures, it's going to have to be at least three feet tall. Are they going to spread it out over three waves of figures? Send you a box of parts to assemble yourself if you become a patron? No, the two ideas were presented separately and not in context of each other. You wouldn't do that when you were scripting out a presentation. I think the Haslab Sentinel and the biggest-BAF-yet are two different animals.
  5. How are you gonna include Lady Octopus and not Scorpia!? 😜 Seriously, thanks for putting these together. They're always fun (and hard!). I don't have much to add on my choices, really. I've been jonesin' for a new armored Spider-Man ever since the Mouse Trap Web-Trap Spider-Man figure from the old classics line was such a disappointment. Neat gimmick, terrible figure! Armored Spider-Man Cardiac Lady Octopus The Living Brain Man-Wolf The Molten Man Rocket Racer Spot Swarm Tinkerer
  6. I glued everything down on mine. I normally don't like to do that kind of stuff to my figures, but I'm getting a little more relaxed about it in my old age. Plus, it was maddening! I like the colors better on the boxed set figure, but like the no-jacket look just a little better than jacketed. It's a tough call, but I'd probably go with Warlock wave if I had to pick one over the other.
  7. I spent a full five seconds wondering what you could have pre-ordered from Amazon in a fit of anger. Think I might need a nap! My Rage, Leader, Captain Marvel, and Mach-1 all came from Pulse yesterday. AOA wave is still fixing to ship. Wal-Mart, on the other hand, continues to be the most incompetent retailer I've ever had to deal with. I just received and email telling me that the exclusive grey-suited Black Widow that I pre-ordered on January 23rd is now on back order due to high demand. Don't worry, though. They'll let me know when it ships. If it ships. They may have to cancel it. They may not. They haven't decided yet. Rest assured though, they'll let me know what they decide at some indeterminate point in the future. Presumably before the heat death of the universe. What in the actual hell are they doing!? I get it: everything is in disarray and everything is delayed this year. That's fine. Wait an extra six months for an action figure? Sure. It's really not important in the grand scheme. But how can a retailer this giant and this established be unsure if it can fill a pre-order from five months ago!? How in the world are they this effing bad at selling a product exclusive to them!?
  8. Wow, I almost voted for Leland. It would give some of those Doc Ock parts something to do.
  9. There have been smatterings here and there. Toybiz did a Ramos-style Spider-Man and a Green Goblin in the old Spider-Man Classics line that were both pretty great to look at, if not pose. Hasbro's Marvel Girl figure from the Brood Queen wave was very much a Bachalo drawing. I could do with a McFarlane Spider-Man and maybe a Hulk. I'd be set after that. The specific artist figures can sure be cool, but sometimes they don't look right posed next to the other, more house-styled figures on your shelf. I like more of a subtle influence, like those new Jim Lee-esque Punisher heads, or that mane of hair on the new AOA Weapon X that references the Adam Kubert approach. Also, I've seen the McFarlane DC figures in stores. They didn't grab me. In my opinion, DCUC is the high water mark for the DC universe in 6-inch scale. I think McFarlane is, so far, falling short of that mark. The DCAU-style stuff in particular looks kind of bad.
  10. I'm calling it: High Evolutionary. ...And that is 100% just because I'm reading the Evolutionary War right now.
  11. Just got a cascade of emails from Hasbro threatening to ship my AOA wave preorders in the next few days! (I ordered back on Feb. 22.)
  12. Dang, lots of tough calls. I had to leave some hard wants on the table, but this is who I ended up going with. Amelia Voght. I'd love for us to start working our way through the Acolytes. Voght and Cortez would both be good starting figures for that. Voght is my personal preference. Arcade. This guy's too much fun to pass up. Maybe they'd want to hold him back for a Spider-Man wave, though. They're going to have to start scraping the sides of the Spidey villain barrel. Avalanche. Poor Avalanche has never been done in any of his comic-style armors in Legends scale. That's a crime. Get him out there! And yeah, he needs a big, goofy "A" on his chest so that we all know his name. Banshee. Such a close call on which costume to go with, but green and yellow wins out for me. Just make sure you follow up with blue & yellow soon after! Brood. I was really torn between Brood Drones and Hellfire Guards for an Amy-builder, but I've had that Brood Queen figure forever now and she's so lonely. Mastermind. Brotherhood of Evil Mutants, please! We can do his Inner Circle look down the line. Meggan. Let's make some classic Excalibur progress. Green & black uniform, please. I never cared for that orange turtleneck thing. Mesmero. Mesmero's classic look is one of the coolest X-Villain designs. Sebastian Shaw. The Inner Circle are another group I'd love to get rolling on. Shaw is a great place to start. And Hasbro could definitely get some mileage out of his pieces. Or do him bare-chested. (Or both!) Toad. This guy is way, way past overdue. Plus, he's worn minor variations on his classic costume in several different colors. Hasbro would have to love the re-issue possibilities there. Thanks as always for the survey. It's a lot of fun!
