  1. With the way today's writers are abusing certain characters and turning them into into characters they were never intended to be by their creators, I don't blame em for suing Marvel. Their characters are getting desecrated left n right.
  2. Based on who's listed in this wave, just US Agent, Thor & IM for me. I'm intrigued by who the BAF could be but not getting my hopes up that it will be worth getting due to their stupid "no taller than 8.5 inch" scale criteria. classic Erik Josten Goliath has to be 12'-16' tall!
  3. Classic Hyde with gritted teeth and alternate screaming/yelling head sculpt, grabbing hands & fist hands!
  4. Negative, this is his Neo classic armor right after his Silver centurion armor got thrashed. This is his space armor from Operation "Galactic Storm" story arc. This one is also a must have.
  5. Both this & the Venom figure seem to be based of Todd's art from when he was on the book. Brock was a buff bodybuilder, his version of Pete/Spidey was a more lankier build imo. 60s-70s-80s Spidey was drawn more buff, then certain artists started to depict him with a more athletic gymnast type body such as Todd, Larson & a few others.
  6. Classic Swordsman more than rates to be an Avenger before crap characters such as Dr Druid, Rage, Speedball, America Chavez, etc. Character sports a very cool costume, is one of the , if not the best swordsmen in the world, an expert hand to hand combatant & also expert with knives & other sharp edged weapons, his sword was provided by the Mandarin & has many of the properties of the Mandarin's rings. has a variety of energy type powers which he can activate by pressing a button on the hilt . He trained & taught Hawkeye in everything he knows. Give him sword wielding hands & fists, alternate gritted teeth or yelling head & energy FX for his sword. Put him on the Grim reaper buck as he's a big guy at 6'4 250lbs
  7. Hawkeye did that to prove to a skeptical Ironman that he had the skills to become an Avenger.
  8. Problem is that in the past 15 yrs, Marvel editors have allowed writers to throw whomever they want on the team irigardless If they're already members of other teams or they've always been flying solo such as DD, Spidey & the Hulk. They were throwing 3/4 of the FF on the team for chissakes! The Avengers used to be the military equivalent of the USMC, only the best of the best were voted on to join the ranks of earth's mightiest. Heck, if you participated in the Christmas trimmings of the tree at the mansion, that rates automatic membership according to some. Use to be a time when only around 25 or so characters in the Marvel universe had the distinction of being Avengers, now it's probably in the hundreds. Being an Avenger has lost it's luster when just bout anyone can be a member. So now people want super lame figures of characters to be made as Avengers that had no business ever even being on the team.
  9. So, anyone who helps decorate the Mansion for the holidays rates membership? Well, better them than Safespace & Snowflake.
  10. I decided to go on a suited figure buying binge this past week & now have a good amount of suited soldiers/hitmen for Fisk to sic on Frank, Spidey & DD. I made this custom office last yr to split between KP, Tony & JJJ. Can't wait to add the retro Suited Hammerhead to this pic. Wish the Coulson, Everett Ross figs weren't so damn expensive cuz I really wanted to add those suited characters to my goon squad. I do wish they hadn't made KP so damn tall, he's 6'7, not 7'7! Hopefuly Hasbro re-does him at a more accurate scale in some future Spidey wave or Bring on the bad guys wave.
  11. I was able to get this on discount at my local Tarjay last week for $37, lot better than the full $52.99 price tag.
  12. Very nice! Just need a new in scale Valkrie & the classic Defenders team is represented in 6' scale, course, shrimpie surfer will look like a teen next to the rest of the team.
  13. You make my point. You were in your 20s when you started buying your own figs, you had a financially priviledged childhood & your experience is in the "minority". Middle class & the poor don't have the cheddar to be buying their kids $24+ figures every week/month. I know I'm not buying an under 10yr old expensive figures that come out in waves of 7 multiple times a yr. I'll get em the much less expensive Marvel alternative figures. If some of you have the cheddar to get your 5 yr olds all the ML figs they want plus your own, then more power to ya. Most teens & twenty somethings are into the video gaming business than they are action figures, some of you could deny that all ya want.
  14. Cracks me up whenever I see someone mention "Kids always want stuff" when it pertains to the ML line. I have yet to see a "kid" looking at a ML fig whenever I hit Target/Walmart/Walgreens, etc. At $24 a pop, this is not a kids toyline. No mom, unless she lives in Beverly hills , is gonna be buying little Timmy these figures. Their parents more than likely buy them the cheaper made Marvel figs & those 12' scaled 6 POA figs. Today's generation of kids is mostly into video gaming & Tide pod snorting.
  15. Totally agree. KP shoulda been a full head shorter. Same goes for the Thing. Both were over scaled.
  16. Speak for yourself, I've been craving for a classic 1st app Sabretooth since TB last made him. And the new 80s Herc buck is the ideal buck for Creed. My God, he's 6'6 not 7'6! No need to be on the Omega Red buck who's character is 6'11. Give him a mean gritted teeth head sculpt & open mouth snarling/ yelling head sculpt along with open raking hands and closed fists.
