  1. Love that we're getting so many new characters in this wave that we haven't seen before!
  2. It is *criminal* that he doesn't come with a remote control and a Senator Kelly head. "My fellow Americans... I am an idiot!"
  3. The goats get their own poster! Wait.... what is the goats' names are 'Love' & 'Thunder'?!?! 😮
  4. Great review! Bonebreaker is such a fun, toyetic choice for a BAF. So glad we didn't have to buy 'hot claws' Wolverine to complete the BAF.
  5. Beautiful work! Customsbymatchu always does amazing stuff. I have a particular soft spot for C & D list characters that appeared in the old ToyBiz lines in the 90s. Hopefully we see an official one from Hasbro at some point.
  6. The new 'angry hands' are a nice sculpt, but they don't really match with a neutral face? It seems like a really cynical decision to ship her without a screaming head. 'We sculpted a screaming face for a future release, so you'll have to buy that version later'. Watch out for a another 3-pack in the future with a new exclusive character (my money is on Feral). The hair sculpt is beautiful, but as the review states - it feels incongruous with the facial expression. Hopefully the next version of her will be a more complete package, building on the good elements here.
  7. DST are smashing it with this series. The animated busts are spot on for those of us with fond memories of the '92 series. I hope they find a way to bring out the X-Men TAS minimates they previewed a while back.
  8. They'll show the actual figure before she goes on pre-order, right? Or did the last few pre-orders go online without people seeing the actual figure?
  9. Loved all the comic book trivia in this review! I'm glad we got a more 90's looking Domino with this set. The Sasquatch wave Domino looked a bit moring in the all black costume, and left me a bit cold. Super excited to have a Rictor to keep Shatterstar company in my X-Force display as well.
  10. LOVE Customsbymatchu's work. This one takes me right back to my childhood, collecting X-Men cards, buying ToyBiz figures with my pocket money and recording X-Men the animated series off the TV to watch after school. Fun fact: I only just this year found out Tusk is an Inhuman. I always assumed he was a mutant as a kid. If hasbro can deliver a BAF half this cool (with articulated Tuskettes too), I'll be a very happy camper.
  11. I mean, they kind of already gave his power to Hela in Ragnarok, right?
  12. I'm hoping her appearance in the SSU prompts Hasbro to include a comic Calypso in the Marvel Legends line soon.
  13. Thanks for sharing. Love all the comic page recreations with the figure. Great review, man. Keep em coming.
  14. Man... Speedball gets no balls? Reusing the Kirby krackle from Ultron of the shoulder piece from Sunspot would have at least given a nod to his powers. Guess they're planning a 3-pack with him in the near future 🤷‍♀️
  15. Was just coming here to post this. They mentioned an alternate head for her in an earlier livestream about the wave, but the wording they used made it sound like they were saving it for some other release. If they hold out on the screaming head now given the art we're seeing, I suspect there will be many a cross collector.
  16. Feels like Hasbro are going to wait for a rerelease to include an alternate screaming head on Theresa 😔
  17. Did they say they had made some 'extra pieces' for Siryn that they 'hopefully' to get around to releasing 'next time' they figure out how to release her? Are they seriously going to release her with her non-screaming head, and then tease a future release that might have the actual head she should come with? Man - this is some disappointing marketing BS from these guys.
  18. I wonder who will be packed in with Galactus? We saw the (admittedly very basic) Prime Sentinel & Bastian/Prime Sentinel with the Sentinel release. This could be a chance to include some really fun and obscure Heralds as unlockable support tiers. I'd love to see a Morg or Stardust included. Perhaps even a couple of teeny, tiny, scale heralds.
  19. My confusion on this figure stems from how closely the they have paid attention to some aspects of source material, and completely ignored other details in the SAME source material. Karima's alternate arms are very clearly modelled on the art from X-Men Legacy 243. I understand that the alt head sculpt is more modelled on the House of X/Marauders appearances, but in both those instances, she also has black hair. Anyway - still holding out for a running change.
  20. Man, this is such a fun figure. Those blaster cannon arms are so clearly modelled from her comic book cover.... and that hair sculpt 😍❤️ ! I'm bummed that Hasbro didn't colour correct that flesh tone on the alt head before release. Representation matters. Might have to have a go at recolouring her so she looks more true to her Indian origins.
  21. Have Hasbro acknowledged the incorrect ethnicity/pale skin in the alt head? I'm wondering if there' any chance of a late running change as others have mentioned, or if I should engage a customiser. If Hasbro haven't said anything about changing it, or even made mention of the error - then it seems unlikely they'll release a new head. It's a shame - I think this is a very cool looking figure in terms of sculpt and alt accessories.
