  1. I hope Hasbro has finally put Jan on an appropriately shorter buck. She's 5'4" to Hank's 6'. I'm also thinking a Hank Pym/Avengers wave is likely. I feel like most of Pym's major villains have been done adequately (Ultron, Egghead, Kang, Whirlwind, Absorbing Man), though I agree that Immortus would be a great fit. Executioner needs a figure, too, though he'd be a better it with a Thor wave. A new Yellowjacket seems like a given. And maybe Nadia (though I'd prefer Cassie in her Stature uniform). But I'm really pulling for Janet in her classic 70s red & gold uniform & a Byrne Jarvis -- with vacuum! Of course, the Classic Avengers wave I really want would have a Lockjaw BAF and could include any/all of the ones I previously mentioned (minus Nadia, who makes less sense here) — plus Crystal (with a Luna pack-in) & Starfox, and maybe Swordsman or classic Mantis. Or a blue Byrne Beast (easy repaint at this point; though I wish they'd shrink him, too). I'm hoping for a Scarlet Witch & Quicksilver anniversary set, too, either in their 1A togs or their modern costumes (though I'd rather have the Kevin Wada costume than her current one, much as I like it too). And I would never object to an updated OG Young Avengers set.
  2. My Legends 2023 Top 5: Monica Rambeau Captain Marvel ("Secret Wars" Doctor Doom 2-pack)...though the wing flaps are awkward Tigra (non-neon West Coast Avengers 5-pack)...PURRFECT in every way! Safari Jacket Wonder Man (despite the goofy face) MCU Agatha Harkness (I know, I know! And speaking of goofy faces...) 5-way tie for #5, none of which were figures I bought, just the ones I was happiest to see made (reasons): - Karnak (inching toward completing the Inhumans Royal Family) - Spiral (just gorgeous!) - Avalanche (gateway to Destiny) - Corsair (c'mon Hepzibah!) - Molecule Man (screaming for a "Secret Wars" Titania/Volcana 2-pack) Runners-up, from a structural perspective: - Target Black Widow: the 70s hair was a total miss-mess for me, but the improved legs make me want to track her down & pop on my Gwen 2-pack MJ head - Franklin & Valeria Richards 2-pack: more teens -- better bucks?! (c'mon Wiccan & Speed!) 2024 Wishlist Top 5 (and then some): Destiny (finish a team already!) Marrina (ditto!) Rachel Excalibur Phoenix + Widge & deluxe Phoenix Flame effect (you see the trend) Magma (flame-on; Binary repaint) Jarvis (c'mon! ESSENTIAL!) Deluxe sets/3-packs: - Crystal/Lockjaw/Luna 3-pack - Wiccan/Speed/Hulking 3-pack (simple redos of Justice, Marvel Boy & Astonishing Hulk, Hasbros!) - X-Factor Wolfsbane/Feral/Hepzibah 3-pack (with a Rahne wolf-form maybe?) - Cypher, Sunspot & Cannonball 3-pack (classic costumes) - Classic Valkyrie (Lady Liberators/Defenders costume; one eye covered by her hair) + Aragorn deluxe set - X-Terminators 5-pack: Skids, Rusty, Artie, Leech & Wiz-Kid - Marauders 5-pack: Greycrow, Arclight, Harpoon, Riptide & Prism BAF: Bova (yes, really...that Rintrah's gotta be good for something!) Runners-up: in no particular order - Triton, Gorgon, Warriors Three, 70s yellow & red Wasp, 70s Ms. Marvel, Warbird reissue, OG Mantis, OG Moondragon, 1st Appearance Wand/Pietro 2-pack, Darker Than Scarlet Wanda, Crossing Wanda, Modern Wanda, Quicksilver reissue with the right hair, Blue Byrne Beast (smaller!), Titania, Volcana, Starfox, so many...
  3. Hey, Hasbros! Classic Wasp NEVER had four wings. Only two. As a matter of fact, I think she's only has four in plastic, not in comics. Why not release her accurately -- and include stinger blast effects instead of the lower wings? Loving this sculpt otherwise! Would also love to see her in her classic Bronze Age red & gold outfit with the cowl/collar wrap.
  4. @McHogan I'm afraid you're right, on all counts. Just happy Wanda's been retuned to the spotlight (in a good way) in print!
  5. These are cute (if a total cash-in), but with the conscious decision to have fewer characters on the "Avengers #16" homage, wouldn't it have made more sense to have Hawkeye featured instead of one of the 3 founders included? Also, I don't get why these sorts of things aren't variant covers for the titles they actually represent? It's not like Spider-Man needs sales boosted (or is it? No clue, really, having never followed that character line).
  6. @Darth_Primus Brilliantly done! When the Hasbrahs get around to re-releasing Jocasta in vintage packaging, she definitely needs to come with a crop-top sweatshirt! This could be the start of a whole movie tie-in sub-line: Wanda as Glinda the God Witch, Rogue as Scarlett O'Hara, Disco Dazzler as Kira from "Xanadu". 🤓🥸
  7. I so disliked this movie & the way it butchered Wanda's character that I can't bring myself to buy this figure -- though I kind of want the Darkhold for Agatha. The likeness looks good, but it will just make me grumpy to have her on my shelves. The only other SW figure I've boycotted was the first Civil War one -- the face sculpt looks exactly like Kate Beckinsale as Selene in "Underworld". Not a bad thing in of itself, just not a very good likeness of Lizzy.
  8. I gave up on waiting for a correct ML one and ordered the Select Vision a few month back. He's amazing, tbh. Much less plasticy-looking than the MLs and he scales well with the original Hasbro "Maids of Might" Allfather wave Scarlet Witch. (She's got legs for days!) Finally decided that while I doubt I'll ever part with my fugly ToyBiz SW, the Vision from that line is way past his shelf expiration date. Bye, bendy-footed toaster man!
  9. Not exactly my Saturday morning cartoons -- but then again, those were primarily in the 70s/early 80s -- but they're pretty cute. That ain't Wasp's SECRET WARS costume, though. Not even a mis-colored take. But I still give it all a thumbs-up! Now we need a Villains version...
  10. Couldn't agree more -- on all counts. Looks like a must-read (haven't said that about an X-book in a while). And that Dauterman cover is jaw-droppingly gorgeous! Here's hoping that we soon get a Legends Destiny.... ...and that a good writer finally does a similar story to clean up/clarify the mess that's been made of Wanda & Pietro's parentage.
  11. I'm so confused. I know these are more kid-driven that even the recent limited articulation vintage style 3.75 mini Marvel Legends line, but are these "epic" plastic chunks replacing those "legendary" ones? Either way, it's time for Scarlet Witch & Quicksilver!
  12. Have we seen in-hand review images of the Tigra included in this set yet? Just curious to see if the orange is less neon enough to justify the hunt for her. I'm really not that interested in any of the other figures included, but I'd love to have a Tigra that I CAN'T spot from across a dark room. And with better hair! 🐯
  13. SO on the fence about this, yet excited that (some) effort was made. However. I have a few thoughts... Why do I need another chunk of armor when we could have gotten Wanda in her "Darker Than Scarlet" costume? That gray Black Widow head is just screaming to be reused for it. I know I'm in the minority, but a man in a tin suit is about as exciting as Batman or Spider-Man 🥱😴💤 The "extras". Since when do what apparently seem to be mostly just a lot of extra hands qualify as "16 comics-inspired accessories"? Hasbrahs, please. We all have fists. Stan & Jack didn't invent those. 🙄 Bobbie's sleeves. WTAF are those pointy little elbow things actually supposed to represent? The box art does away with them entirely, underscoring the fact that what we're getting is an obviously cheap cop-out. Mockingbird's classic costume is ALL about those billowy sleeves -- for ALL the reasons (particularly the previously mentioned hiding her battle staves). Tigra. OMG. They got her right. No more Day-Glo orange. And. Aaaaaand new hair!!! Y'all all missed that. So many complaints about the slicked back circa 1994 runway model hair her prior release had and none of y'all noticed how wispy and bouncy and perfect the hair on the "pretty face" reissue is. She's the ONLY must-have in this box for me. (Anyone wanna trade?) Despite the fact that they still haven't painted on all of her stripes. Her inner thighs and arms should have deco too, fellas. 🙀 OK. Hasbrahs, listen up. The OBVIOUS follow-ups to this are: Inhuman Royal Family: classic Crystal, Gorgon, Karnak, Triton & Maximus. Lockjaw + Luna as a deluxe. Warriors Three + classic Balder & Karnilla New Mutants: Sam & 'Berto in their training uniforms -- plus Magma (powered up), Cypher & headmaster Magneto (the purple & white "M" costume) Young Avengers: those ToyBiz things are almost as fugly as your Kate Bishop. Redo her, classic look. Pus OG Wiccan, Speed, Stature & Eli. Release Iron Lad & Kid Vision with Viv as a 3-pack. And Hulking as a semi-deluxe. Lady Liberators: Wasp (yellow & red cowled classic...only the top two wings -- who told y'all she EVER had 4 wings?!? Also, make her short for once), Medusa (OG masked), 70s Black Widow (with zipper AND bouffant + bangs), Wanda (for god's sake, get her classic colors, boots, 40s hair, etc right for once), and classic Valkyrie (OK, it was really the Enchantress, but just go with it). Women You Keep Criminally Ignoring: Marrina, Talisman, Madelyne Pryor (get the costume right), Hepzibah & Feral
  14. Well done! These are fantastic -- big fan of all your customs! I'd been thinking the AoA Kitty Pryde would make a good base for Arclight -- those armor details might translate well. But maybe she's too short/slight of build? Anyway, congrats on the terrific work!
