  1. Well now sometimes it's going to be those stretch goal rewards that make the difference in someone choosing to back or not. I think that's okay. I wasn't going to back the Sentinel until they showed that Master Mold head. I'm going to back Galactus either way, but I can understand if someone said they were still in wait-and-see mode for now. Everybody wants good bang for their buck and they'll all have different tipping points when making their decision.
  2. How bizarre that they left the cuffs off of Cyclops' boots and gloves. I wonder if he comes with alternates.
  3. Well, they are and they aren't. The thing is that the Sentinels vary in size depending on the model that you're talking about. Most sources put the Marks II - VI at 20' tall. After the Mark VI, the sentinels were drawn with more and more variation and artistic license than they had been before. Also, I've had a difficult time finding official heights for most models after the Mark VI, but the Mark VIII at least looks a little taller than 20' in the artwork I've seen. Of course, none of that really matters because the HasLab Sentinel doesn't seem to conform to any specific model of Sentinel from the comics. Maybe it looks closest to the Mark VIII? (I'd love a correction on that last point if I'm wrong, btw.) So yes, the HasLab sentinel is taller in scale than what at least I would call "the more classic Sentinel models" (marks II - VI, excluding V). But it is not necessarily out of scale with more modern models and looks (again, to me at least) to be a little closer to a more modern sentinel's height, which matches Hasbro's overall design. I agree that 16" is a good size for a "classic" Sentinel action figure, but then I subscribe to sliding size scale theory. I actually wasn't going to back the HasLab sentinel, just because I thought it was a little too big, but then those dang stretch goals were met. So, while I didn't feel like I needed to back a 26" Sentinel, I absolutely needed to back a 27" Master Mold. That's how they get ya.
  4. He is in scale. Yes, his height and weight are variable, but his normal height is listed as 28'9" in the Marvel Directory (http://www.marveldirectory.com/individuals/g/galactus.htm), the OHOTMU, and the Marvel Database (https://marvel.fandom.com/wiki/Galan_(Earth-616)). At 32", the figure is generously accurate.
  5. Has anyone? I haven't seen anyone post a sighting in an actual Walgreens yet. I usually wait until they've been sighted in the wild until I start looking.
  6. It's not just you. I'm torn. I think he's going to absolutely kill it as Blade, but it's already weird enough when Black Mariah shows up in Civil War. It's a difficult thing to ignore. Luke Cage season 1 is my favorite of the Netflix things.
  7. Same. I'm going to back it; just need to move some money around first. But I'm only getting one where I got two sentinels.
  8. Lol...comics! That really confused the hell out of me for so long. Avengers Annual #10 was the first thing I ever read with Pyro in it. Then later on they would reference him being Australian. For the longest time, I would assume I just remembered wrong when whatever the comic I was reading at the time said one way or the other. I didn't realize until years later that they had pulled a switch. Felt like I was taking crazy pills!
  9. Ugh! I meant 39:29, not 29:39. Thank you! And thanks, @Satam for posting the actual. I'm going to edit my original. Maybe I should just lean how to link at the timestamp like a normal person...
  10. Nobody actually said that. I think some folks are jumping to a conclusion a little bit. Go to 29:39 to hear what Dwight actually said: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3zu0CdQ5gKA. I'd be surprised if they had an honest-to-god troop builder figure as a stretch goal reward and only include one of it. I think he was either making a joke about getting more faceplates, or something else. Edit: Go to 39:29, not 29:39 for what Dwight says. Sorry!
  11. That's not correct. He was originally British. https://www.cbr.com/x-men-pyro-brotherhood-evil-mutants-british-australian/
