  1. If that’s true then they should have made him look like he did in Secret Wars. This is not his costume there. His purple shoulder mantle should extend to his belt. And his hair is all wrong. Doing an image search I saw the modern comic he’s based on in which, to be fair, he didn’t use a wand either. I like that they made him but I prefer my custom who is shorter and pudgier and has the scars on his lips as well. But this guy will go with my FF villains so he’s still welcome.
  2. I wonder if this direction is the fault of the HasLab team being in charge of the operation. IIRC it was due to the failure of the Star Wars Rancor that they reorganized how they did HasLabs and the team “responsible” was changed from the product marketing group to the group that executes them and the marketing teams were co-leaders or subordinates. They made it sound like “we aren’t in charge of them anymore”. That’s what I remember. So the marketing team probably presented a handful of ideas and the HasLab team decided this was the one that would make the most sense. Only it doesn’t. What about an all-new LED flame tires bike with a Johnny Blaze GR? The price point could be closer to $150-175. Then stretch goals of DK Ghost Rider figure with his bike’s add-on pieces (like the HISS Tank HasLab) to encourage multiple sales. At a lower price point you could buy 2 for the price of a single HellCharger. Or make the initial offering a pair of bikes with the JB and DK figures. The bikes could be molded a little differently (since they are a lot different styles) but a lot of the parts internally can be identical. the HellCharger looks awesome, but it’s just all around a poor value. It’s like they don’t see the world’s in a recession and a lot of people don’t have the kind of disposable income they had a couple years ago.
  3. A felony? For “a” toy. Must have been a really expensive one. Felony theft has a dollar amount to trigger it. Otherwise it is misdemeanor petty theft.
  4. Retro Spider-Man sold out in 4 mins. I couldn’t find him at first then he got snatched out of my cart. 😡
  5. OK Nakia’s boots are different from the Okoye and Dora Milaje’s boots. Can’t tell yet if they’re reused or new. I really like the leopard print on Killmonger. You can finally see it like the movie rendered it.
  6. Looks like everyone got a repaint except for Black Panther. Can’t see any differences offhand. Colors are different for Shuri and Killmonger. Nakia has a slight recoloring and the boots of Okoye or the Dora Milaje. Different enough. Ugh. $25 for a repaint without a BAF. Sign of the times…
  7. it’s like the pin system from before except the pin is one with the bicep or forearm—all molded together. Not sure how it’s pulled off in manufacturing. But you can Xacto the pin on the side of the elbow middle piece and heat it up enough to pull it off the cylinder. It’s like the pre-Shriek female elbows (or elBros as we call Hasbro’s single elbows). Supergluing the cylinder back after replacing the forearm with something else is tricky. It’s possible but the joint is not as sturdy after that.
  8. Yes. It’s way harder to mix n match biceps and forearms, thighs and shins/boots than the pinned versions. For arms you have to take the whole arm as is and for legs it’s really difficult since swapping whole legs is a crapshoot because of the differing hip socket sizes. They’re not interchangeable. Technically, you can cut the internal support pin and swap out at the knee and elbow but you risk locking the joint when you superglue it back and like a lot of pinned molds, the diameter of the internal support pins can be different. I love the new look of pinless molds but, yeah—a LOT more difficult to customize than the older ones.
  9. They kept saying "Pulse" like it was an exclusive. Maybe a Pulse exclusive, maybe an internet Fan-only release.
