  1. Great reveals. Half can pass for comic versions. And Wolverine reveals tomorrow. I’d REALLY like to see the Angel revealed tomorrow as well.
  2. I really like this figure update…to a point. I have it and the ROM is okay. Perhaps an ab crunch or ball joint in the flesh portion would have been better even with the overlay on top of it. I don’t know. What I can’t stand about this version are the gaping sides of the shirt’s underarm-shoulders showing the skin beneath. I think the shoulder holes could have been smaller and tighter fitting. Since it stretches and all. I also dislike that he is shorter than the previous Hasbro versions and even shorter slightly than the ToyBiz one!!! Looks good next to Iron Fist though. I’d give it a B+ or an A-
  3. Yes, the chest is a new sculpt to “key in” the cape so it’s not just a plug-in to the back but rather glued to cut grooves in the torso. The pelvis and lower hips are also new with folds that previous figures don’t have. The cape is new. I didn’t look too closely at the helmet. That may be the only re-used piece. Even the hands aren’t the same grasping hands from earlier releases. They’re smoother. Like animated versions.
  4. Your’e right, he was easy. I saw him all over. Even got a few on clearance for customs. Once he dried up though he went up in price (like most Spidey villains).
  5. Yeah the new torso artic is nice. But they should have painted Spidey's web lines. I did that on the previous release and it made him look 100 times better. I would have liked Morbius on a better body. The Sunfire one is right for his stats plus it has butterfly joints. Maybe clearance if it makes it there. Or eBay the Spidey? Not a preorder though . For sure.
  6. They will have Con exclusives. But for PulseCon like the last couple years. I prefer that. Go on Pulse. Order. Done. I haven’t missed out on a Con exclusive since they started doing that.
  7. It’s gotta be Grizzley. I only say this because I am 90% done with a custom of him. No sooner than when I finished my Rose and Tarantula customs, I saw Rektangular’s leaked list. It’s happened so many times 😆 I really hope it is the Spider Slayer. Does not matter which mark. That’s something I don’t want to make, and I think they would do a great job with it.
  8. Lord! Perfect size. Scales well against the Captain America and (likely) other newer Iron Men. Would have liked to see him side-by-side against more figures like 80th Iron Man, 80th Thor, and Sunfire-bodies or Bucky Cap bodies.
  9. Perhaps he has a ball waist like Dr. Doom? It's a new sculpt so that could be how they articulate it.
  10. For being 50% re-use on a figure we used to get for regular figure price (Colossus, Death’s Head) this figure’s price is offensive. I might understand if it were retro carded, or jacked up to Beast prices at $33—but $5 over THAT? Only comes with an extra set of hands and is the same cost as a BAF Apocalypse (retro carded)? This isn’t a character that warrants premium prices. It will NOT be selling out. I’m waiting for a discount.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. Retro Spider-Man sold out in 4 mins. I couldn’t find him at first then he got snatched out of my cart. 😡
