  1. Yeah, but those figures are rarely going in the trash, and Hasbro has a recycling program for unwanted figures. Sure, using plastic at all isn't great for the environment, but using it in disposable products is the major culprit.
  2. Gamestop frequently puts unavailable figures on sale, so I don't think that particular example serves your point. They pretty routinely leave stuff in their catalog for years after it's unavailable and keep marking it down and including it in sales as though they still had it.
  3. This costume of Wolverine is actually a worthwhile one, though. I could've done without motorcycle Wolverine, Weapon X origin, first appearance, etc., etc.
  4. I was never really all that thrilled with Rasputin or the other chimerae. They all felt pretty uninspired to me. I liked Xorn and Cylobel better, but I'm still glad they went with all 616 characters.
  5. I'm actually pretty happy with this wave, and in mostly opposite ways than everyone else, it seems. Cyclops, Professor X, Magneto, and Wolverine are definitely the updated costumes from this story that I was most interested in seeing, though I would rather have had the version of Magneto that fit better with the Bendis renegade X-Men. I don't really care as much about Moira or Jean in those looks, or Karima at all, but it's cool to get them. I would've loved to see Destiny and Cypher take some of those slots, but Destiny could really go anywhere, so I'm still holding out hope.
  6. They mentioned in one of the interviews that it's just pizza Spidey. I know it looks a little different, and stockier, in the digital sculpt they showed, but apparently that's what it is.
  7. The Hellfire guards look better in-person than in promo shots. I had some reservations that have now been put to bed, about the size of their heads and the shape of their masks. They did that same Iron Man 2020 nonsense, where they just hand-painted eyes through the holes in the mask, though, and it looks bad. On the box they just have plain white eyes, and it looks a lot better. I know their normal eye process wouldn't have been possible, but I wish they had just left them white.
  8. This figure looks legitimately terrible, but I do get where the translucent thing comes from. The idea is to use actual light to make the figure look illuminated. It just doesn't work without paint. If this figure were translucent orange plastic, thoughtfully dry-brushed and/or inked, it would look great. The translucency would let through the light without making the whole figure see-through. An opaque orange figure with black lines painted all over it, whether they were recessed or not, would look just as bad as this.
  9. Yeah, that's why I said it was only kinda an alternate reality. For someone who hasn't read the story, I thought that was the best way to explain it. To clarify, I meant the one guy who looks like Groot is both Cypher and Krakoa, and probably Warlock too. The guy in the back is Xorn, and the Magneto-looking dude is a genetically-engineered descendent of Polaris and Emma Frost, named North.
  10. Nah, those are the horsemen in an alternate reality (kinda) future. It's Cypher/Warlock/Krakoa.
  11. It doesn't have the tiger stripes like the Astonishing costume, but as the Astonishing costume is to the classic tiger-stripe, this outfit is to his 80s brown costume, more or less the X-Force costume in brown. The legs are a little different, but basically that. And yeah, I think a lot of people have drawn comparisons to the Maker when looking at X's current iteration of Cerebro.
  12. Yeah, if they're smart, Jean will be double-packed. I'm sure it'll be Wolverine, but hopefully it's Jean.
  13. The thing is, I can't think of any other male characters who mattered to this storyline, other than Cypher or maybe the red Nightcrawler dude from Powers. Even ahead of this rumour, I couldn't think of any other male characters that mattered enough, and was pretty sure we'd see three women.
  14. I'd be surprised if it weren't. Dwight said in a recent interview that this wave is based on the first 10 issues of House/Powers, and Jean didn't have any other looks during that series. She's changed her costume since then, but it sounds like these designs were turned in before issues 11 or 12 were even published.
