  1. Would love more MCU first. Especially side characters. But I would totally get a Jessica Alba IW just for the head.
  2. Wasp over pack really worked out for me. When she went on clearance for $10, I was able to pick up 20. Now I have a swarm for my own world. Plus the Evangeline head is amazing.
  3. I'll get shunned, but would love MCU 90's sitcom Wanda.
  4. I'm usually happy with newer lines, but only when they are better (with exceptions). I only got into Marvel with Legends, but my Star Wars experience was a roller coaster. I had the originals in the 80's and stupidly sold them for LEGO money. Then POTF2 came out and I went crazy. I hated the buff design, but lived with it. I recollected all the vintage figures but hated the low detail. When Hasbro made their modern lines, peaking with TVC, I was really happy with them. I totally ditched POTF2 (with exceptions) and the 80's vintage. Even though I should have nostalgia, I get that feeling even more with modern TVC design. But now Hasbro has the 6" SW line, but I don't collect it. Sure they are nicer characters, but the 3.75" SW line will always be better because of the vehicles and environments. 6" Marvel works pretty well because there aren't many vehicles to worry about. I really hope they can make some. The best I have are the Slam WWE vehicles.
  5. Sorry, I mean her mask/eyewear. It is likely glued on unfortunately. But I thought Spider-woman was glued too until I opened her up. None of the promo shots of her had them off. It was a great surprise.
  6. I preordered on BBTS. I assume that the glasses are removable like they are with Spiderwoman.
  7. I'm super impressed with Moria MacTaggert. She's perfect for city streets as well as laboratories. Two non-masked heads, removable coat via arms change. Tied for best figure since Stepford Cuckoos with retro Gwen Stacy. I have 10 on pre-order.
  8. For me, I pretty much only want civilian figures. Figures like Netflix Jessica Jones, classic Gwen, business suit anyone, and Stepford Cuckoos are great examples. Even though I'm a big marvel fan (playing marvel puzzle quest 3+ hours a day for four years), I focus my collection on the civilian world as if they are not marvel. What I desperately want is police uniform 6" figures. No one makes these. You can get them in 12" and nothing else. You can get military figures in any scale. Also non-motorcycle vehicles that can fit 6" figures are nearly non existent. The only two vehicles that work are from the WWE line. RC and other toys that claim 1/12 scale are pretty small and you need 1/10 scale to properly use figures. I will end up making my own 3D printed figures and accessories once I have the equipment and time.
  9. My #1 request is Spoilsport. Since she's not even on others' radar, the chances are slim. I'll probably need to make a custom from a Cuckoo or Mary Jane with Dazzler skates.
  10. In my area, it has always been very hard to get figures at retail. My two Walmarts have failed me since 2009! Before then, they were an okay source, but they don't stock stuff and I'm now able to verify with brickseek, etc. Target is the only retailer now I can use since TRU is gone. I had to hit up my 4 locations frequently to find the nuggets. However, none of my locations got Red Hulk and they haven't put him online. So I'm frowning on that. I feel real lucky to have scooped Yelena since the rest of the wave was gone. She was my priority and at least in this case, the other scooper didn't care.
  11. I agree that this figure turned out way better than the prototypes. I do like her, but there is room for improvement. The Black Widow head in this wave is disappointing compared to Infinity War, Endgame, and white deluxe. So in that regard, Yelena is my favorite figure in this wave.
  12. While the face sculpt is way better than the Winter Solider version, it is completely behind Infinity War and Endgame versions in my opinion. At least the $30 white deluxe version is very good. I had this and Yelena on Amazon pre-order and they were canceled with listings removed. Luckily, I found Yelena at Target, but BW was gone. There is a good chance I won't be able to pick this figure up.
  13. Inventory still shows 0 in my area. The inner city price looks to be $36.59 when they do get it. I'm all in at $30, but I might be out if it was any higher.
  14. There are some head sculpts with paint apps that are amazing. Black Widow Infinity War and The Wasp MCU. This Black Widow seems like she was well received and she looks just like Scarlett Johansson. The Wasp MCU pegged warm hard and I was surprised. The head sculpt and paint app alone that looks like Lilly Evangeline are worth $20. She peg warmed hard and I've gotten extras on clearance. I now have a small Wasp army. Other nice heads and figs worth noting are Jessica Jones Netflix, Punisher Netflix, Scarlet Witch TRU, Peggy Carter, Captain Marvel MCUs, Nick Fury (Cpt Marvel), Mary Jane Homecoming, Luis from The Wasp. I'm really disappointed that the Black Widow movie figures don't have that MCU shine and are comic book styled. Did Black Widow Infinity War cause a backlash that I'm unaware of? Why downgrade the MCU sculpting and paint app that was so good? Other figures I love outside of MCU are Nico Minoru, Elsa Bloodstone, White Rabbit, and Stepford Cuckoos. Collectively, these figures listed have drawn me into Marvel figures.
  15. This figure is so awesome. Second only to Stepford Cuckoos. Would have wished for an inclusion of a killer mutant bunny and explosive carrot if there was no alt head and hands. At least we get the shooting umbrella. I love her backstory and it makes me interested in her vehicles and some associates. I've purchased 4 Fortnite Wild Cards for her elite henchmen and 6 Fortnite Rabbit Raiders as goons. I can't find any images of Bunnymobile (or Flying Hare). Does anyone have references to those? I don't even know what issues these would have appeared in. I think I need to get an extra Slambulance when it's released and make a Bunnymobile. With her, I would love to see a full Menagerie set (Panda-Mania, Skein/Gypsy Moth, Hippo). I think she makes a good base for a Harley Quinn custom.
  16. Wow Walgreens already took down the page. I've only been able to find one copy in person. I was able to pick up 3 Wasps at $10 each at one Target. Another Target had Far From Home Spiderman (basic suit) for $10.
  17. The decision for me will come down to if articulated hands can grip the 6" figures King Kong style. Those Unicron hands wouldn't pass the test.
  18. Haslab is known to release only large expensive items thus far. (I do think they should use the platform for more products that might struggle at retail but fans would go crazy for.) From what I've seen, the Amazon Sentinel is way under-scaled compared to these references. I don't know what height they will get, but I'm sure it will be a massive sized Sentinel.
  19. Thank you for the tip on the Slambulance! That thing will be great when customized. Just remove the WW's and the "SL" and you got a cool 1/12 toy. I agree it will be $50 or $60 and at that price point I will get a few and customize them. I can already see two of them all painted black ready for Agents of SHIELD, etc. I should pick up more copies of the WWE car. I was waiting for a sale, but I feel like that won't happen and $30 isn't bad. I hope Hasbro keeps making more 1/12 vehicles.
  20. I want to army build Maggia goons. I would do a small army of ninjas. If they did MCU Hydra or SHIELD guys, I'd be all over that. (Please give me the Agents of SHEILD cast too.)
  21. I just purchased the Kingpin BAF wave ($155) just for Kingpin and was going to sell 6 of the characters on eBay. I do like the all white suit, but I would enjoy more Kingpins especially at $30 a pop. He's my favorite human enemy. BTW: For Maggia goons, I find the WWE Elite Mr McMahon to be very suiting. He is 7", but some of the Maggia goons are extra large. Just need to remove the WWE paint and he's ready. It would be cool to get a Maggia set at some point.
  22. I now see that the Amazon 16" Sentinel was way under scaled to the 6" figures. If Wolverine is just as high as the Sentinel head and if Sentinel uses a 1:8 head to body ratio, then it would be maybe around a 48"+/- Sentinel. I might be interested if it is super articulated especially with the hands.
  23. Patrick Stewart, Ian McCullen, Hugh Jackman: YES!! I would love a non-blue Mystique, but doubt this will ever happen. An army of Peter Parkers for the body (please have an alt clean head). An army of Gwen Stacys. Just for heads: Black Tom, Rogue, Nega. I'll probably get the Deluxe Punisher, but Netflix Punisher will be my favorite. This Punisher will just be civilian. I wish the van rumor was true ... I'll always hold that candle. Need at least two 1/12 scale vans. The Jazwares A-Team Van is for 1/18 unfortunately. There is a huge cargo army plane at Target for $60. A van would smaller and even after licensing could be as low as $80. Even at $100, it would still be a success. Red Hulk: I like oversized human freak foes. For Haslab, the hint is Marvel Legends X-Men Jubilee enemy. I guess it must be Sentinel. Is it going to be a giant Days of Future Past version? Maybe I will pick up the entire movie line if this is the case. For the Hasbro Pulse vote, I'm going for Silk because it has a good head.
