  1. BBTS failed me once with unable to fill LEGO Minifigures Series 1 cases. Luckily I had a backup preorder for that via Entertainment Earth, but for only one case as I was counting on BBTS for 3. This was out of BBTS's hands as LEGO made a short run for both Series 1 & 2 and under estimated demand. They left BBTS out to dry. It was hard to get any cases even for future waves and could find them from importing from amazon.fr at retail prices. I also had one item in my loot that they "lost" when it came to ship. I forget what it was, but I was bummed at the time. Overall, I still love BBTS and I think I've gotten over 1000 items from them. Had no issues with Dorkside or Hasbro Pulse or even Amazon, but the number of items are just a few dozen each so the sample size is way different.
  2. I would definitely buy at least 2 and really want it! I think the price point would be around $100, but I would still get if it was higher. Besides the Marvel Legends motorcycles and the WWE car, we are really lacking in this area. The 6" GI Joe vehicles are going to be likely jeeps/hummers/buggies. They could be painted to be almost street friendly, but they are so militarized that it's no where close to being as cool as a van could be.
  3. How about the people who buy 3 at a time? Almost worth it getting them off eBay. I've gotten 15 from eBay in lots of 3, 3, 6, and 3. Really just need 1 more to have my 4x4 squad of 16 and will try to get last in person.
  4. I eventually plan to. I have purchased some Extreme Sets 1/12 scale dioramas. But everything is packed up and I don't know when I'll be able to actually play. I have a feeling that these sets might not give me the depth I'm looking for. I will probably end up building environments by hand and 3D print accessories. I've thought about the NECA building, but I feel like I won't get much out of it as I need way bigger environments. I do like MCU and I'm a daily MPQ player. When it comes to the figures, I like to spin off canon and make them something else (keep what I like and change everything else). I like what I know about White Rabbit thus far. No super powers, just crazy with an adorable outfit. I also think she is a great candidate for a Harley Quinn custom. I know I sin for crossing the DC universe, but I can't help it. I've picked up 2 White Rabbits and have a 3rd that was previously pre-ordered on Amazon. One is to keep original and two to make two different HQ customs. I've already drafted part 1 of a Deadpool vs Harley Quinn photo comic (more sinning). I guess what I need more of is the civilian population. They are what make the world more alive. Also Jemma and Fitz are the best part of Agents of SHIELD for me. They need to be figures so badly! Anyway, don't expect anything productive from me for years. I have a lot of life obstacles in the way. In the meantime, I collect items that will be of use in the future.
  5. Hasbro has done a good job with Marvel Legends and I would hate to see that change. I think the SW 6" line and license could learn to allow for head and hand swaps compatible with ML. That would be a game changer for me. I started with getting certain MU characters to blend in with SW, but I guess that was a limited opportunity. I'm a huge SW TVC 3.75" collector. I have been collecting POTF2 up through present including Jabba's Barge in the 3.75" scale. My SW soul belongs in 3.75" land. But I've been spending my money on ML instead because there is so little happening in TVC. I keep buying troopers and ordered the new Imperial Transport (will get more on sale). Half the fun of SW are the vehicles and that does not work at the 6" scale. The 3.75" scale also allows for more variety of figures to be released. I think Hasbro really blows it outside of 3.75" and 6" scales. I just see a waste of plastic, opportunity, and shelf space. It would be nice if they would invest in environment (playsets)/accessories and plus keep product on the shelf. Adjust cases quicker and buy back the low demand peg chokers. I'm jealous that Barbie gets so many playsets, vehicles, and accessories. However Mattel cannot be trusted as DC looks so bad right now. I'm a die-hard Harley Quinn fan, but she looks terrible with most products.
  6. Any alternate "street-attire" outfit gets my vote (e.g. Jessica Jones Netflix). Extra hands and heads (especially clean non-attached accessories) can make the difference for a purchase or not. I've made several purchases just for nice clean heads. I'm using suit-n-tie versions of every Legends that gets released plus anything that doesn't look like a comic book character or can be easily painted (Punisher Netflix).
  7. I've been a casual street-attire-focused collector starting with Winter Soldier. This figure alone has made me jump in a serious binge and now I'm registered. I've gotten 12 Cuckoos from eBay thus far. The one nice local Walgreens I had closed down a year ago. I think my goal is 16 so they can be a 4x4 squad. I'll mix with all sorts of suitable heads. I'm happy they used my favorite outfit and included 3 heads and extra hands. If more characters had 2-3 heads and hands, I would buy more. I agree with leokearon: I just wish they didn't have powered up eyes. I'll experiment to see if I can at least add irises. Maybe someday they'll make The Gifted version?! It wouldn't be too far fetched or an idea since we had Electra Netflix and comic versions released close together. Since the release of this character, I've been buying more Legends and now either for extra heads (e.g. Invisible Woman) or other ideas.
