  1. Not disagreeing with your point, but the first two Holland sculpts (this one and the Spider-Man Homecoming 2 pack sculpt) looked exactly like him to me. The biggest problem with the Homecoming 2 pack version was his hair was all combed over flat like it never was onscreen. This one thought I thought was perfect.
  2. All I know is that a full Blue and Gold uniform X-team is the culmination of something I’ve wanted for nearly 30 years, and godless them for finally making it happen.
  3. This is 100% why I don’t want it, even though I love War Machine and I love this armor design for Iron Man. It doesn’t look like War Machine. that’s the same reason I didn’t like the Avengers 2/IM3 War Machine design, even though it technically had the turret. They slimmed it down so much it just looked like it was supposed to be Iron Man. Thankfully they fixed it in Civil War and the later films.
  4. I mean, people have been claiming that the MCU is “dying” for years, and it’s still not happening. At the moment the same people who are saying “go woke, go broke” are still watching it. They just complain about it afterwards.
  5. It definitely seems like the sort of actor they would go for, but it’s hard to believe they’re going to cast an 80 year old in a role that won’t even be out for several years, much less any appearances beyond that.
  6. This 100%. When you think about it, it’s no different than when Iron Man has had abs or pecs sculpted on his suit. It evokes strength even though the suits strength has nothing to do with muscles.
  7. It’s desperate, and too little too late, but it does make sense. They know everyone will want a human Reyes if they have any hope of still making this project happen. They can’t just throw the early bird figure back in because it would completely undermine having an early bird incentive in future projects. So they split the difference.
  8. The thing is, by all accounts, the MCU films aren’t like most huge budget films. Marvel Studios a machine. The studios, crews, VFX… it’s mostly the same whoever the director is. Hell, several directors have said the action scenes were mostly planned out before they were hired. With all of that in place the experience of the director is almost insignificant to how the film is made, so they can afford to bring in someone who might have a fresh viewpoint to give it some style. Or the cynical (but probably equally correct) view is that newer directors, early in their career, will be excited by the opportunity and less prone to fight the studio on the things Marvel doesn’t let them control.
  9. I have to agree, I don’t think the Early Bird tactician swayed many people by itself. People who were going to back the HISS tank still would’ve backed it. But I do agree that it was a value ad for people who are on the fence, as opposed to a figure that most people would consider integral to the product as a whole, like Reyes.
  10. I think the Hasbro team knows that, as much as the Hellcharger was obviously a misfire, changing the “rules” midstream in order to get it funded would just backfire on future projects. Better to just ride it out and hopefully learn for the next one.
  11. *slaps forehead* Ummm, so this is the part where I embarrassingly admit that I misread the dates on your post. I just saw your response today and for some reason thought I read the date as having been posted yesterday, which is the only reason I replied. I don’t read these boards often and I thought it was odd that it had been so long before you replied, but I am apparently an internet illiterate. Though I’d rather admit that than anyone thinking I’ve been randomly stewing on this one topic for the last two months. I swear I will not post on the cursed BP Legacy wave ever again.
  12. I understand your idea about production minimums, but what you’re describing is unfeasible to say the least. 1. Storing things is expensive, and virtually all modern supply chains are designed to limit or eliminate having product on hand doing nothing. Your idea would have required Hasbro to store thousands (tens of thousands?) of half finished figures for five years. Any accountant would have a heart attack at that idea. It would literally be more cost effective to destroy the entire lot than to just sit on them for no reason. 2. Your idea would mean that they were still producing BP figures at the factory months after they hit retail and decided that they weren’t selling well. There is no way that happened. The manufacturing would have been finished well before then, possibly even before the first figures were hitting stores. 3. Hasbro does similar reissues like this wave ALL THE TIME. Their production pipeline is clearly able to spin up to make reissues/repaints without too much hassle. 4. Again, your narrative is entirely dependent on the idea that the original BP wave didn’t sell well, but you appear to be the only one who remembers that being the case. As I said originally, the idea that these are somehow leftover figures just isn’t reasonable.
  13. 1000% in agreement. I was so disappointed when they streamlined him to the extreme for IM3 and Ultron. It took away everything that makes War Machine amazing. Aside from the original IM2 suit, my favorite is Infinity War. It’s huge, beefy, and has an absurd number of weapons sticking out. That’s War Machine.
