  1. I'd be really surprised if not offering digital comics for a few months puts anyone out of work. Offering the digital books months ahead of their physical counterparts sure would make it a whole lot harder for comic shops to ever re-open, though.
  2. The two-pack one with Wolverine from late last year... and the SDCC exclusive, from late last year... and also the gray Hulk, from late last year. It's the new go-to comic Hulk sculpt.
  3. As much as I've enjoyed Hickman's X-Men reboot, my hesitation this whole time has been how unheroically it has painted them. Putting them in cahoots with invading armies against Earth isn't assuaging my fears.
  4. I had that exact same thought. I hadn't done it yet, but was planning to.
  5. This is a reckless, stupid statement. Pennsylvania shut down my business as a preventive measure yesterday, along with all non-essential businesses, until at least March 27th. It will probably put me out of business, but it was the right thing to do. The experts, not the media, have some extremely dire warnings about this virus, and people not taking those warnings seriously will likely lead to a death-toll of 1 to 2 million people (in the US alone) before this is all over. Obviously, panic serves nobody, but downplaying the severity of COVID-19 will cost lives.
  6. I doubt I can really add much to this discussion that wasn't already articulated incredibly well by LandoTucker, but these sorts of comments are really getting out of control, and read like you don't even understand the viewpoint of the people you're decrying. Nobody in the world is offended by female curviness. That argument couldn't be more disingenuous. Disney, Marvel, and Hasbro's response to the very real criticism that every woman in the 90s was depicted as extremely (and sometimes impossibly) curvy has been to actually illustrate and sculpt a wide variety of body-shapes. There is no crusade to do away with curves, but there's certainly an effort finally being made to represent less curvy bodies too. Just off the top of my head, Mystique, Lady Deadpool, 90s Storm, 90s Polaris, every version of Jean Grey, etc., are all very curvy, ample-chested figures made in the last year or two. Have there been weird choices about which figures get which body-types? Sure, a few, maybe, but the vast majority have been spot-on for their usual depiction. Hell, even some of the examples that seem to have the most people up in arms are pretty overblown. Walgreens Emma, for instance, has relatively little hip curvature, but was commonly depicted that way by Bachalo, so there's a totally applicable reference point. People love to cite her as an example of a de-emphasized chest too, but that's largely an optical illusion. With the figure in-hand, she's working with a lot more than is apparent in 2D pictures. A lot of people seem to think of Storm as extremely curvy too, but her actual depiction in comics hasn't been that consistent. In the 80s, for instance, she frequently appeared much less curvy. True, the figure in question represents her look in the 70s, when she was definitely on the curvier side, but all we've seen are more-or-less head-on shots of the figure, so it may be the same issue as Emma. And if it's not, all evidence would suggest it's simply a(n arguably) bad choice on the part of one sculptor, not a global conspiracy to de-curve all female action figures. Having this discussion over and over is doing this community no favours. This is a super unnecessary low blow, dude. I often don't agree with monron's take on social dynamics, and I think you're spot-on regarding his comments, but it doesn't do any good to make things personal, especially when you're resorting to such low-hanging fruit.
  7. I'm pumped. This figure was a big surprise, but I couldn't be more excited. I don't know why, but I always liked this weird, creepy dirtbag of a character.
  8. When they lose the license. Me? I got a few more Wolverines I could handle, but they're not top priority or anything... and none of them are over 6-feet.
  9. Not that the hair on this head is anywhere nearly as crazy, but it kind of makes me nostalgiac for Sam Kieth Wolverine art.
  10. Big Figures Blob Brood Brood Queen Gentle Holocaust Mojo N'astirh Proteus Rockslide Involved Figures Angel: probably some version of his blue costume, preferably either the San Francisco or post-deathseed version, big wings, maybe a bazooka? Cannonball: you know... Iceman: ice slides and ice projectile effects Magneto: magnetic force field orb, and preferably his white costume Mimic: ice effects, optic blasts, etc., and big wings Nightcrawler: big bamf effects, a flight stand, and maybe his X-Force costume Phantazia: huge articulated cape somehow?
  11. Where and when did they say this was part of the MCU? That would be a supremely weird choice.
  12. People keep mentioning his 616 version. Are you all talking about his blue and purple Changeling costume from the 60s, with the giant helmet? I didn't think he ever really made any subsequent appearances, beyond a few brief flirtations with undeath. I wonder if they've resurrected him on Krakoa yet...
  13. Jesus. Tell us how you really feel. You have a lot of experience with Czech medical care, do you?
