  1. I missed that. Where did you learn about a new guns policy?
  2. Aw, I hate you. Hey, did Hasbro email you a tracking number for the Sentinel at any point, or did it just show up?
  3. I was thinking of good uses for that buck; Dum Dum would be a great use. I also thought of Harry Leland and Zarrko, the Tomorrow Man.
  4. Bagged my limit on Skrulls. I actually ordered everything offered today except for the Hobgoblin. Got three S.H.I.E.L.D. two-packs. I am so psyched for Hammerhead and Shocker. They knocked it out of the park on Hammerhead in particular. I hope they use the bigger suited body to do a Red Skull later on.
  5. That Hobgoblin doesn't make sense to me. If they were going for an animated series look, they nailed it with the paint apps and then, almost intentionally it seems, went a different direction with the shredded cape and inaccurate portrait. Why would you do that? I would have been all in on a faithful animated series adaptation. This split-the-difference offering is bizarre and the one figure in the wave I'm going to pass on.
  6. My guess for the legless figure is Bonebreaker. He's also my most wanted out of who fits the criteria. But there's always Ultron-6.
  7. Seriously, maybe they'll be daring this wave and not include one. They've let Deadpool anchor X-waves before and he's got a strong connection with Siryn. Not that there's any outstanding Deadpools that I want. I think the consensus here will be that it's unlikely, but I'm feeling a Blob build-a-figure.
  8. That's probably never going to happen either. The Sentinel was a HasLab project; a crowd-funded thing. Hasbro stopped taking orders well over a year ago before they went into production. The secondary market is almost certainly going to be your only avenue from here on out. I'm sure lots of them will be going for sale on eBay and wherever else in the coming weeks and months as they ship out to the project backers. Maybe you can find a good deal somewhere if you keep your eyes peeled. Good luck!
  9. In addition, the picture and sound quality that people have in their homes can be comparable to a movie theater. I remember watching The Simpsons with my whole family on the little 13" tube TV in the living room back when it first came out. Now I'm deciding on a 60" or 72" for the basement and trying to decide where to put the speakers. Wired and other sources report that digital piracy is on the rise again. Younger people are more willing and/or able to pirate new releases and it's not always because they just don't feel like paying (https://www.wired.com/story/2021-platinum-age-piracy-streaming/). In my anecdotal experience, my younger friends and colleagues just don't value going out like my older friends and I used to. A strangely high number of them think of talking on the phone over texting as anathema. Several of them can't or won't order a pizza unless they can do it online. I'm not trying to sound old or somehow superior. These are observations I make without evaluation or judgement, but the difference is definitely there. Yeah, watching new movies in your own home is the future. I don't know how studios can or should react to that, but they're going to have to figure something out.
  10. That would be great if they used the 80 Years Cap and gave him a more conventional color scheme. Toad would be boss as well. I like to say that, technically speaking, he is the single Marvel Legends figure that is most overdue for a redo.
  11. What do you think a Toy Biz wave would be, conceptually? Are you thinking they would re-release some old Toy Biz figures? Re-master them? Re-create a Toy Biz wave with the same character lineup in the same costumes, but with new figures?
  12. Wow. Bravo on the deep dive! This one's a lot of fun, but adds nothing of value for me. Guess this one's likely to be the end of the stretch goals?
  13. They should have said something by now. I'm a backer. I'm a Pulse Premium member. I, and others like me, just helped them cross a major milestone in the project and there has been no acknowledgement of it. No email blast to say "Thank you! You guys have unlocked the Silver Surfer!" Not even an update on the webpage to that effect. They don't have to announce the next stretch goal the second the Surfer is unlocked, but they really should have by now said, "Thanks, guys! You did the thing! Stay tuned to these places in this approximate time frame for what's next! Let's keep the energy up!" I mean, it's not ruining my day, it's just bad PR. $400 is a lot of mai tais and the second stretch goal is a big deal for backers. Exciting things are happening and the silence is coming off as really dismissive of that. We're 44 backers shy of 18,000 as I type this. Edit: There it is. 18,000.
  14. At this rate we're going to hit 18,000 before they say anything new. I feel like this is a misstep on Hasbro's part. They asked fans to rally yesterday and the fans rallied and now there's not a word a congratulations or celebration from them in, what, almost twelve hours? The website still says the Surfer "will be unlocked at 17,000 backers". How did they not have things ready to go? As we go into the final countdown and things are happening, I feel the fans getting excited, but I'm not feeling it from Hasbro.
  15. No doubt. It just feels to me, based on almost nothing, that the Surfer was originally going to be unlocked at 18,000 and they made a change at some point because the backer numbers weren't/aren't behaving like they expected. Feels to me like the stretch goals would probably have been set at 16k, 18k, and 20k, but then again 14k to fund was unexpected out of the gate. Who knows?
  16. I actually think your earlier theory about a Ziran, The Tester head is most likely. It fits the same pattern as the Sentinel (figure, figure, alternate head) and lines up with the clues dropped in the livestream. I think you were on the money there.
  17. Anyone else get the impression that they haven't shown off the third unlockable yet because they're still trying to gauge where to set the goal posts for it?
  18. Yes he does! They killed it. I can only hope the rest of the set is this good!
