  1. I think army-builder is the way to go. Which army-builder that they've offered so far hasn't sold out in minutes? I reckon they'd clean up if they revisited the X-Factor uniform in that format.
  2. Yep, I'll do it. I'm an X-Men fan first and foremost and I was really pissed when they hinted at Goblin Queen being a tier for this HasLab because I think it's way overpriced and also not that interesting to me personally. But now that I've seen her, they can keep her! She looks terrible. The costume edit is definitely number one gripe with a bullet. It's so mind-boggling to me they felt compelled to do that when this product is such a limited release and so cost-prohibitive that it's all-but exclusive to adult collectors. But there's so much more going on here. Or not going on, rather. They really couldn't be bothered to sculpt the boot tops!? Really? That's what $350 gets you? It's admittedly impossible to tell in a render, but hat cape looks more likely then not to be a nightmare hunk of plastic on par with Medusa's hair. And the accessories: no little goblin servant(s)? No telekinesis effects. No alternate head with her eyes showing? NO BABY NATHAN!? No, she has to come with her signature...random skull. As a non-backing X-fan, this is much more of a relief than it is disappointing. If anything, these never-available-again lackluster figure tiers just let me know who I can safely add to my list of customs to work on.
  3. I got an email with a link for premium members, but there's nothing anywhere. Am I missing something or is something broken?
  4. If this is for reals, I would guess - based on the relative size of the packages, the inclusion of the Proton Cannon, and Hasbro's loose interpretation of the term - that this would qualify as a "deluxe" figure. It may be that what we're looking at isn't the standard retro card, but a deluxe figure version of it. So they can technically stick to what they said and and keep the plastic in the standard retro releases. ...and, y'know, jack up the price another notch on this bad boy.
  5. Dude, it's the Fantastic Four. Fourth time HAS to be the charm.
  6. And a bizarre red circle for a face. Yeah, if everything else comes together, I'm going to have to get a second Controller.
  7. Dude, I'm chasing that same Secret Wars dream as you. I'm with you on the outfits, too, and you know who I bet it all comes down to in the end? Wasp. Wasp in that green & purple getup. Mark my words, when we get Volcana and Molecule Man and all the rest, she's going to be that one piece of unfinished business. The other complete set I've been dreaming of completing one day is the complete cast of the Captain America and the Avengers arcade game. Just for the obvious reason: that it is the single greatest video game in history. Giant Mechanical Taco is gonna be a #$##.
  8. Same. No interest in Robbie or the Hell Charger really. But I do very much want Danny. I hope they don't get tied up together.
  9. Lol, Walmart loaded the last shipping address I used. I was one second away from having him shipped to my 3-year-old niece in another state before I realized what I was doing.
  10. Yeah, I can definitely live with this version. Much improved. Curious to see how this shakes out.
  11. I'm really hoping this is not indicative of the final release. Those promo pics are a seriously nice-looking figure. But the silence from Hasbro is deafening. I'm sure marketing is seeing the scuttlebutt. I feel like if they had something to say that would allay fears (and order cancellations) they would say it.
  12. Yeah, I couldn't even come close to justifying $34. I only preordered him when he was $23 during that Target sale a few days ago. I was able to switch several Pulse preorders to Target so saved some bucks and get free shipping. Yeah, that's clearly the reason but I've seen some people throw it out there like I'm just supposed to say, "Oh, sorry. I had no idea. Carry on, then." No, to Hasbro and the apologists I would respond:
  13. Hey, all. I'm wondering what your thoughts are on the reports that the upcoming Iron Spider has a two-tone red color scheme. Here's a link to a review if you haven't heard this one yet: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ev-A97l1zDg. I'm certainly going to cancel my preorder if this is actually the case. I'm just having a difficult time believing Hasbro would actually try to pass this off on a $35 figure. But then I think, "yeah, they've done things this horrible in the past". I'm looking around for some kind of confirming or conflicting reports, but don't see anything yet. What do you think we should expect?
  14. Just got an email from Hasbro. Looks like Rhino is fixing to ship!
  15. Ah. Yeah, looks like there's a Magneto and a Jubilee, too. Well dang it, Cyclops would have been my first pick. Wolverine and Rogue both look pretty cool too, though.
  16. Man, he looks good! If this sculpt were to become available in a blue & black or two-tone blue color scheme, I grab him in a heartbeat. Frankly, I probably would have gotten him with the intention of repainting him myself if he had come out only a year or two ago, but I can't justify compromises like that at the new price points. Here's hoping he gets a re-deco in the near future. I'm also anxious to see what Marvel Select comes up with.
