  1. Well, I missed out on the Walgreens offering so I'm real glad I'm getting a second shot at this for retail.
  2. I now stand corrected and informed, thank you. I will no longer propagate a false story. đŸ™‚
  3. I have a story, from a colleague who was working in the Marvel Bullpen during that time. THIS IS RUMOUR. According to the story, the Clone Saga was all dreamed up via a consultation between Marvel........and Todd McFarlane. Apparently all the Image guys were invited back inside by Marvel to "consult" periodically ( Before Heroes Reborn), and were seen by staff numerous times. Todd suggested the Clone Saga idea, ....and Marvel bit. And the speculation about the story was that it was two-fold: That it was the stupidest idea Todd could come up with, AND that it was DELIBERATELY INTENDED to SABOTAGE Spider-man ( at that time) so that Todd's Spawn title would beat Spidey in sales. Which it did, apparently. And Marvel bit. Again, this is RUMOUR, but I think if you look at how Marvel was doing at the time, the fallout of the story and the reactions to it, it does seem to fit that scenario. But you all decide...I think it makes for a funny anecdote
  4. When there's multiple titles, featuring the same headlining character, the story mill and inspiration well runs dry a lot faster. Had there been a single standalone title all this time , they'd still have decades of untrod stories waiting ahead.
  5. I always thought that Alpha Flight's Shaman was going to be problematic in action figure form, but ML went ahead and did his classic look...and nary a peep about doing so. Mandarin is in a similar light, and the yardstick for this needs only look to sculptures/statues already made......of which there are several. There's no outcry about those things, and toys have been made before. Pick a look and go, I'd say....the figure is long overdue.
  6. Re-do the Toybiz Face-off version, just don't make it rubber/vinyl. Treat the billowy sleeves like Lady Deathstrike's, so there's some articulation there. The lower drape of the skirt, either flexy vinyl plastic, split at the side or go soft-goods/cloth from the waist down.
  7. Actually, I disagree, it CAN be done right. Mezco One:12 does fabric, in a different way ,that works at this scale. Mezco Star Trek figures and others have nicely draped clothing therein, BUT YES, HASBRO AND MARVEL LEGENDS DO NOT. Well, the trench coat that ToyBiz ML Gambit came with still holds up...but overall, for the brand itself........near-total fizzle
  8. The head sculpts are gorgeous, but that lab coat.........nnnot.........really feelin' that.........
  9. I can take off my clothes again. That's always something to talk about. No? <group shakes head "no">
  10. The stockpile/orders of merch in Canada is considerably less than in the USA, so there's more incentive/urgency to move stuff down there as opposed to up here. We get about 1/10th to 1/20th of the quantities they get stateside. It DOES happen up here, but it's a lot less frequently.
  11. I've got my eyes on Nefaria ( FINALLY), Whiplash too, and She-Hulk. I'll need to see better, clearer shots of the Iron armors.
  12. We do need a classic comic-accurate Colleen Wing--she is long overdue. But you know what?? Include her and Moses Magnum in a 2 -pack--harkening to X-men #118-119 and ya'll will shut me up for a good long time. đŸ˜‰
  13. The fired-showrunners influence will be felt through most, if not all of this first season because of the lead-times involved in production. They are definitely in post on the last episode right now. So content is locked in. that also means that season 2 which has been underway for a while now, will still have some influence too, but you will not see a new take until the end of season 2 and the entirety of season 3.
  14. Yup, this figure is definitely being added to my Wants List. The wing architecture and head sculpts are winning points.
