  1. Herald Thor. The one Thor I'm not interested in. Hilarious that Hasbro tweets to lower your expectations.
  2. I think the point is the difference in "extras." We're essentially getting charged for a piece of cardboard and energy crackles no one wants.
  3. I have Selects Immortal Hulk on pre-order, but I wonder if I should now hold off for 20th Hulk. I could really use a classic 80th Hulk, a Joe Fixit Hulk, or a 90s Professor Hulk.
  4. I know Marvel at one time at least had binders of character designs they could refer to. I feel like now Hasbro just has an intern google "old comic Dr. Strange" or "Classic comic Tigra." They look at the google image results that come back, and pick one that they think looks best or easiest.
  5. So The Retro Thing is showing in stock at Dorkside, and someone posted a screenshot on Fwoosh of a notification from BBTS that it would be charging and shipping soon. I didn't get a notification, although I have it preordered from BBTS. Is it March 2022 already? This is a truly bizarre happening. Everything is months behind and this is coming 5 months early??
  6. All true. But sadly, this probably WAS the compromise. "We can release this character, but only if fan channel, toned down, and IF we release fan channel Hercules at the same time, to show we don't promote the straight male gaze." That's the corporate mentality right now, ripped straight from the Twitter mob.
  7. Too orange. Not pleased with the reduced chest and cleavage. Think I'll cancel my preorder because the figure is not a necessity for me. Although I disagree with their drive to reduce busts and cleavage, it would be much easier to stomach if they were to reduce the musculature of the males as well. If you're going for realism (although a large bust is a much more common natural occurrence than excessive muscles), at least be even-handed with it. But Marvel/Hasbro seems intent on making males ever more muscular for the gay male and straight female audience, meanwhile reducing the attractiveness of females for the straight male and lesbian audience. No thanks. Be fair, Hasbro.
  8. Thor: Simsonson Armored Thor OR Dargo Ktor OR Masterson Thor. I would take Beta Ray Bill too. Iron Man: Only a buy for me if it's classic gold or gray. But they could surprise me, like Modular Iron Man. USAgent: Buy if classic outfit Blue Marvel: Never heard of him. I don't see myself buying any character whose first appearance is post 90s. Speedball: Yes, if classic. Madame Hydra: Probably. Quake: See Blue Marvel.
  9. Yeah, but I'm not really looking at Legends in particular here. I'm accounting for that, as well as G. I. Joe Classified, and certain TF products. There seems to be a significant under-production of certain items to the extent it seems purposeful and contrary to maximizing profit. It's almost like it's calculated to significantly underproduce initially to an irrational extent that is only justified by intentional sell-outs because it's someone in upper management's "thing." I think many people overestimate the intelligence of some upper management quite often. Regardless, it's a somewhat joking estimate of what's going on, one of many possibilities. I wasn't being entirely serious.
  10. Missed the Skrull and Symbiote on Hasbro. Got Symbiote on BBTS, but of course they don't have Skrull. I think there's a hair-brained executive at Hasbro going "I love sell outs. Make sure it sells out!" And then minions figuring out how they can make everything sell out in some form or fashion. If it's available on Pulse and other retailers, make sure it sells out on Pulse. If it's only available on Pulse, make sure it sells out. If it's a partner exclusive, make sure it sells out to begin with, but it's okay to offer a little more later, as long as it SELLS OUT initially. "Got to have a Sell Out!"
  11. That looks more like the one I remember. But I realize now McHogan may have meant that the figure is Reilly as Spider-Man whereas this one is Reilly as the Scarlet Spider.
  12. I would definitely be up for Tarantula and the bearded/masked/power belt Thor. Along with the future Thor, Beta Ray Bill, Eric Masterson as Thor, comic Odin, Wrecker, classic Nick Fury (not drown by Rob Liefeld), etc. The world of comic Thor is tragically underrepresented in general. If anyone at Hasbro is reading this, I have no interest in animated figures. I just want classic comic figures.
  13. Spider-Man Symbiote: Yes, but why web shooter hands that don't work for the character? Hobgoblin: Yes Ben Reilly: Easy pass. Never cared for him, and this isn't even the look I remember. Hammerhead: Think I only had 1 comic with him. Still want since it's a classic villain and I battled him in the recent Spider-Man game Spider-Armor: On the one hand I have/read Web of Spider-Man 100. On the other, the eyes should be silver too. Leaning towards a yes. Shocker: Yes, classic Shocker. I wish they had painted in his cross hatching like they did on the figure a couple years back, though. Retro Falcon: On a retro card, but not the retro costume. Similar to the recent one. Pass Retro Loki: I just picked up the previous Loki a couple months ago for $10-$12. A couple people mentioned if you missed out on it the first time around, but unless something's changed, it's still dirt cheap on the secondary market. Would be nice to see re-releases of figures you can't get without selling a kidney. They didn't even change what I read as the most common complaint: Hair flying out to the side. If it had included his other classic helmet (the non horned one that came out on a kid Loki figure recently), it would have been enough to make me double dip. Otherwise, no. Retro Lady Loki: Odd to have a "retro" figure of a character that (correct me if I'm wrong) didn't exist until a few years ago. Looks like a nice figure, but a pass for me. Skrull: Yes
