  1. I'm glad they did a deluxe figure for Apoc but I still prefer the BAF one. This is the way they should do deluxe figures in general; not copying BAFs and doing something completely original.
  2. When I think about comics ot the TV show, it's always the team up against multiple sentinels. I love the Master Mold head but he would just end up sitting there on my display. Whereas two would allow for huge battle scenes. The damaged pieces would be amazing for dismembered parts laying about as well. I get a little giddy just thinking about it. đŸ˜› Right now I'm sitting on nearly 200 ML and I get tired of setting up standard shelf armies. These guys would look awesome.
  3. My biggest issue right now is trying to decide whether to buy two of these or just one. Just one sentinel doesn't seem 'right' if you're going to diarama them. And then there's the after-market...keeping one to sell in a year or two to pay for the first. Though, with this many backers, I don't see these getting anywhere near the SW barge prices.
  4. This thing is amazing. What's more amazing is the amount of people complaining about it because they can't afford it. Sorry guys but the fans have spoken and they aren't going to release the 'Lab' products ever again. The whole point of them is that they are limited edition products, they've figured the cost of max production and hell they've even had to scrap project in the past because they didn't meet the order requirements. So don't give me this "The molds are already created and it'll be mass-market in a few years!" bit. Even if they put this thing into stores at $200, no one would touch it. People who buy actions figures nowadays are mostly adults. I have several kids and plenty of nieces and nephews between 5 and 12 and not one of them has an action figure. Most of them have phones and tablets, though!
  5. If he likes it let him like it. It's a great figure. Why you gotta be all bitter?
  6. It's a great figure and I like it a lot. Ordered. You're not the only one excited, people were just expecting something different so they're all pissy.
  7. Easily the best figure of the wave. Which is ironic because the hammer is just flavor for Sugar and not really necessary; pepole would have bought Dark Beast whether he had a BAF piece or now but I'm wondering why if they were going to include the hammer, why not throw the axe in there as well? This wave inspired me to buy and read the AoA collectoin again. It's really a must-read for Marvel fans. Great figure/s!
  8. I'm not really understanding the requests for more head sculpts with this figure. He's morph; he can be anyone and any similarly-sized figure head will fit. Reminds me of the Walgreens Mystique figure, where just about everything I read considered the Rogue/Mystique head that it came with to be lame and otherwise pointless. Hasbro just can't win with its customers. Anyway, it's a character people have been asking for for years now. We finally have it. With the amount of originals in this wave (even if they're specific to AoA), this is one of the strongest they've released in a while.
  9. You know what? I'm a huge fan of Legends and the BAF concept. But they've always used 'optional' characters for the BAF. This is a main character of 90's X-Force and I've spend a ton of money collecting the other members in their 'right' colors, etc. Now I MUST buy every figure to finish the set with Strong Guy? I really hope they do (and they will) release him as a 'deluxe' figure. Maybe a year from now, maybe two. It will be done. It's a bitter-sweet realization because I generally buy entire sets just for the BAF but this is the way they seem to be headed these days. So kudos to current collectors. I only want three from this series but SG is the only character I still need for the X-Force set. I can wait a year to pay $30 for him with slightly diff colors. đŸ™‚
  10. Is anyone actually going to buy this thing? I'm predicting an MSRP of $100. Easily. I'm way more interested in a RR of the Galactus figure behind the dude on the right. Also, PLEASE no more Deadpool or Wolverine ML figures. They are not THAT popular...
  11. I can see Rogue, since that's been asked for for years now but not Jubilee or Beast. Jubilee is both a regular and BAF release and Beast has been released in three iterations (dark, original, regular) over just the last year or so. They also just released a new Apoc in the AoA wave. Personally, I'd love to see a new Sentinel BAF. And maybe an original no-hair Beast, Angel, Banshee, etc. Just please no more Wolverines...
  12. If they continue releasing "deluxe" revamps of BAFs, I'll start collecting something else. One of the biggest incentives in collecting Legends figures for me are the BAFs. I love my entire collection, even the more obscure characters that others choose not to buy and I feel rewarded for making those investments. So if Hasbro wants to bring more collectors in in the short term to buy these deluxe figures and reduce the amount I choose to buy to maybe 2 or 3 from each wave (usually how many most would prefer to buy), it can be their loss. There are many people who feel the same way and I seriously doubt they would recoup the losses from the B and C-rated characters that just end up sitting on store shelves. Also, as others have already stated, more accessories in favor of BAF pieces is the absolute wrong way to go. How many of us hae a bin or bag or whatever full of guns, heads and other 'effects' that aren't in use? That's all I need is more of that crap. Just stop re-releasing the BAFs. The "I want/demand all of the things!" millenials will just have to either pony up the cash for the honor of completing the set or deal with it. I'm sorry but these are collectibles. 100% accessibility makes them no longer collectibles.
  13. I was lucky enough to get all of the Kingpin BAF pieces at non-inflated prices and I'm glad I did. These re-releases are nice and everything but they never look as good as the original. I also feel like it undermines the incentive to complete the BAFs altogether. With Monster Venom and now Kingpin, I'm sure we can expect to see the same thing happen with other BAFs. Will I be completing others going forward? Not if they keep this up.
