  1. I personally don't see why not. I think the Marvel Brand has gotten to the point that Hasbro could do or risk doing these designs. I know for sure that there are some that wouldn't mind some of these versions of characters, and of course, gives them an excuse to help keep some well known name characters being released. I know a friend of mine who would actually love the 1970's T.V. Movie Cap, incluidng his motocycle, and seethrough window like shield. Adn many have stated that they would like Bixby Dr. David Banner and Ferrigno Hulk. As for the Spidey's well, all they have to do is appear the sequal to Into The Spiderverse animated movie, and they would be set. Not to mention, Spidey would probably be the easiest, since it would only invovle a modified Spidey head sculpt, with apporate accessoires to complete the look.
  2. Seems like a good Marvel Select figure. Though I am curious that they are pics of Taskmaster 1st before there are pics of Black Widow, as I would assume they would make a Widow figure too.
  3. Why not. If anything, it gives people more chances to get some other characters/villians. Of course, some characters had some designs different from the comics(Like Doc Ock, Chameleon, and Mysterio to a degree I think is different from the comics), so they would require new or modified sculpts. For the record, the upcoming Mysterio in this line is still more comic based, because of the suit is dark green and has those lines on it. If it was truly based on the 1990's cartoon look, it would of been a light shade of green with no lines(Or maybe just 1 line around the abs area), and he would have a belt. But others use the same designs from the comics(Classic or 1990's at the time) as well(Examples include the Goblins, Venom, Carnage, Electro, Rhino, Shocker, Scorpion, Vulture when he had the youth talons sucking capabilities, Kingpin, to name a few). The only difference(If any) might be the shade of colours used on them. For example, that Scorpion figure from last year's Homecoming Wave was in Dark Metallic Green including his mouth. A 1990's cartoon repaint in a lime green suit with dark green gloves, boots, part of mask, and undies, along with a flesh tone mouth area and the tip of the tail silver, would make it different from the pervious release in terms of paint and close to the 1990's cartoon look, which would still work for a comics look as well(Regardless if he did appear in the comics like this or not). Either way, it would be a good way for people who missed out in past releases(Regardless if they weren't collecting at the time, or didn't have any luck to due to poor release or scalpers) another shot at a character. This also would help comic fans for the designs that are more or less the same as the comics. While for Hasbro, it would help them make use of some past molds(Especially when they are character specific parts), and if required, gives them some new tooling if needed, which would give them more options in their belts for new releases down the road. In the Grand Scheme, Hasbro shouldn't just be limited to comics, and current other media, as past other media is fine with me.
  4. I like the look of Black Widow's suit, especially the bit of gold on her wrist stringers and on the front of the belt. But does anyone think the suit looks a bit more like "Modern MCU" than something from the recent past? I mean, I'm guessing the events of this movie takes place a few years before the events of the 1st Iron Man movie, so I guess around 2000 to 2006 at least. I guess I was expecting a less "Busy" or simplistic looking suit, than a suit with different textures and line designs, because to me, it looks more like something she would wear in the Modern/Current MCU movies. I like it still regardless. Having said that, I guess you could say that her more simplistic looking suits she wore on Iron Man 2 and to lesser extend, the 1st Avengers Movie, were more like a Tactical SHIELD suit with the Avengers suit have a bit of Widow personality elements to it, so I guess I was expecting something a bit more along those lines. But I guess it's not so simplistic so that it looks neat on film. Either way, I may consider a Marvel Legends or Select figure based on this suit. Taskmaster's suit looks nice, and like the design. Will admit, if I didn't get the Comic Book Modern/Ultimate Spider-man Cartoon Taskmaster figure, I would consider this figure. However, I'm happy with what the Tasky I got. Red Guardian looks nice from what little we see. I'm guessing his suit is going to be strongly inspired by MCU's World War II Cap suit, with a few "Recent Past" design elements to it(I suppose more like a Cap suit before Civic War). Depending on how the suit looks, I'll consider a Marvel Legends figure of this design if it gets made.
  5. While I suppose it is a cause for concern, especially with some of the Toy Licensing changes that have happened within the past 2 years(Power Rangers, DC Comics, etc.), I do believe Hasbro will keep the Marvel and Star Wars Licences. Unless of course Disney decides they would rather shop it around to other companies, even more so if Mattel somehow gives them a load of cash for it. I'm sure we'll know by SDCC the earliest, otherwise towards the end of the year. With all the product coming out this year, it sort of reminds me of ToyBiz's final year in 2006 when a whole bunch of stuff was coming out(More Waves, Exclusives, 2 packs, Multpack Boxsets, other somewhat connected 6" comic book lines like Spider-man, X-men, Fantastic Four and I think maybe Hulk, Spider-man And Friends Preschool line, Other Marvel Legends branded stuff like 4" figures, 12" figures, Masterworks, etc.).
  6. The Hulk figure I think was actually from the around 2010 Marvel Legends 6" TRU Exclusive 2 packs, as it had Hulk(Which I think was a repaint and retool of the Wal-mart Exclusive Build A Red Hulk Wave) With Valkyrie. I'm sure a Classic looking ML 6" Ultron will come. Just a matter of when. I'm okay with that Iron Man 3 Marvel Legends release, but I would like it release just for people who want that Classic Look. Having said that, people can always get the Marvel Select 7" Classic Ultron figure, especially since he's a Robot, his height can always change depending on how he rebuilds his body. And I'm sure it will be imposing for those 6" figures as well, and it's still nicely articulated, just not super like Marvel Legends.
  7. I wasn't sure if I'd get this. I mean it looks nice, and I like the costume, but I wasn't sure. But after seeing that it has Swapping heads(Which I swear is Hasbro's Secret Weapon on getting me interested in buying a figure), I have to strongly consider it. Especially more so if indeed a White Costume Emma Frost does come out(Which I assume would be almost a year later), it may not come with either or both heads at all. I'm guess if you got The Wolverine/Build A Puck Wave Emma Frost figure, you'd be able to swap the heads on these 2 if you like. Can't say for sure if you could on that 1st Hasbro ML wave back in 2007, since that body mold is very skinny(Though I will say that the body was did have some nice sculpted details on it. Just that ugly head). Here's hoping that in Canada, EB Games will bring this over, since most of the Hasbro Wal-Greens Exclusives have been sold in Canada as EB Games Exclusives(At least since the ML Wal-Greens Punisher figure). Hoever, I believe the Medusa figure never came at all since I never saw it, and I was looking for that one. I know that in recent years or issues, she wore a black but I did get why. I do know that Modern Cyclops supposely died(Not From the Past Teen Cyclops) around or before she started to wear this costume, but that's it. Works as a Store Exclusive I think because like most people have stated, they would of more like a White Costume version, as the Black Costume isn't well known, and only a few would get it either because they like it or because of the "Exclusive" banner. I mean, could you guys imagine if they did the White Costume version as the Exclusive? People would complain to no end as to why it's an exclusive.
  8. I suspect any other Far From Home figures will be in either some sort of Multipack, a Marvel 80th Anniversary Release style deal, and/or as Store and Online Exclusives(Regardless if it's a single or Multipack).
  9. Any idea if this will include the Extended version that is coming to theatres or not? Just feel that if this released doesn't include the extended version then I'm thinking it might be best to wait and see for that release.
  10. Looks like a good set. Will go well with the old Homecoming 2 pack. Only thing I'm a bit disappointed is that they didn't include a swapping small Spidey-Eyes so that you can mimic the whole eyes being able to be expressive. Would of been good for those who didn't get the Regular Homecoming Suit Spidey I think(Like myself. I skipped on that because I knew I was going to be getting the 2 pack with Iron Man). But that's just me.
  11. Still wish they took the time to sculpt the web lines on the top part of the suit instead of making it plain. Would then matched the sculpted web lines on the Mask. Without the sculpted web lines on the body, or maybe even the lines being painted, the suit looks a bit plain and not accurate. Does the swapping arm have a basic elbow joint? 1 of the photos looks like it might have, but I can't say for sure. If so, weird that they don't bother with basic elbow and knee joints on the rest of the figure.
  12. This trailer looks good. I'm still interested in Fox's final X-men movie. Overall, they've done a good or at least decent job. Will have to see if my brother wants to see this in theatres, as we've already committed to Endgame(Can only go to a movie theatre once or twice a year, and it's normally during the Late Spring to mid-Summer time). Do like that the Phoenix powers inside her is enhanced thanks their trip to Space. The only thing I'm disappointed in is that Jean's Dark Phoenix costume is pretty much the same as the one from X3: The Last Stand. Was hoping for something a bit more Phoenix like. Maybe even if they took her X-men costume in this movie(The Dark Blue with the Yellow "X") and turned it into a Red with Orange X, and I think would of looked nicer(In a way, homage to her X-Factor Red Costume). Could say that her she just changed the look and/or colours of her costume just because. Maybe give her some Red Leather pants and knee high black boots to fit with the whole look this X-men Movie Universe has had, though that might be me trying to sexualized this version of Dark Phoenix a little bit. Though for Dark Phoenix, that might make a bit of sense, since she ideally would be tapping into a darker side of herself. That white hair woman, is it suppose to be Lilandra? If so, would be kind of neat if she and Charles still had some sort of flirting going on between the 2, even if this woman has her own agenda in using Jean as a Weapon, as Charles tries to stop her.
  13. So sad to read about this. Found out a few minutes ago when I signed out of my e-mail account. Already having a not so good day today(Personal reasons), but this just adds to it. Had to come here to comment at least in respect for the man. I have to say that I'm officially Old. After we lost Adam West(1960's T.V. Batman) back in 2017. I mentioned that once Stan Lee dies, I'll know I'm Old for sure. Well, it appears that day has happened. It just seems so impossible that he could die. In all the recent interviews I've seen him in, it just didn't seem possible. Always seem to have a sense of energy in him, like he could almost never die. But in the end, he was still a mortal like all of us, and eventually his time came up. Still, I felt he could of lived to at least 100. So sorry to read that that his last year or 2 in life wasn't a good one. Hope he gets the Peace he deserves. World is a bit less bright now that he's gone, but in a way, he'll always be around thanks to the influence in the Marvel characters he helped created, and the influence in comics in general. So long Stan The Man. "Excelsior!" indeed.
  14. I really like this series of looking at the different costumes and looks of the characters, as well as your opinion on if it needs a remake or not. I do want to add a few things: - While the Spider-man Unlimited Cartoon inspired figure was made during ToyBiz's final years in their Spider-man Classics line(Spin N Trap Spider-man), I do think we could use an updated one. The figure didn't have the cape, maybe use a bit of blue shading if they stick with black on the suit, and the lenses could be a bit of the yellow side than white that the figure used. Perhaps using the cape from the Spidey 2099 figure on a figure. If they really wanted to, they could maybe do 3 colour variants: the 1 used in the show(Which had more red), the preproduction colour scheme(Which had more blue/black, and was almost a reverse of the final show colours. I think this was when the show was still undecided if it was going to be 2099 Spidey or Peter Parker Spidey), and a see thorugh plastic version to repersent the suit in Stealth Mode. - Spider-woman late 1970's/early 1980's Cartoon colours(Wasn't on your list): Okay, so really, the only difference between cartoon Spider-woman and Comic Spider-woman at the time, was basically that the lenses of the mask on cartoon was yellow, while comics was white, and most likely never going to happen. Still, if Hasbro ever felt they need to re-release the Jessica Drew classic Spider-woman in a way that is different from the 2015 release, they could use the brighter colours and colour the lenses yellow. Again, such a minor thing that it will never happen, unless I guess they wanted to do it in some sort of Store Exclusive 2 or 3 pack. And hey, at least it sort of gives people another shot at Classic costume Jessica Spider-woman instead of resorting to scalpers. - Modern Jessica Drew Spider-woman Costume(You called it "All New All Different"): If or when Hasbro ever does make this figure, I hope they give it removable glasses, similar to the recent Captain America Legends Modern Mockingbird figure. Could make the figure more desirable if it allows you to have a unmasked Jessica Drew figure, especially for head swapping purposes on the 2015 Spider-woman figure(Especially for those who aren't fans of the modern costume). From the number of photos of comic book art I've seen, sometimes, the glasses look like normal glasses while other times, it looks like there is something extra on the top part of the glasses(It's not much, but it does make a difference). It would be cheaper for Hasbro to just repaint the Mockingbird glasses(Which I would be totally be okay with), but I suppose they could spend the money on the glasses with the extra stuff. Or give fans both glasses so that fans can pick an choose her look, especially since they would be small accessories anyways. - Pregnant Modern Jessica Drew Spider-woman Costume: Most likely Never going to happen, especially if certain groups go all fussy over it, even more so if it ended up on the 6:00p.m. News on a slow news day(I seem to recall people freaking out about Pregnant Barbie Doll from the late 1980's or 1990's). The only way it would really work is as a either Online or Convention Exclusive of some sort for a limited run. Still give it the removable glasses. Having said that, if they ever did do a "Baby Bump Female" mold, they could maybe re-use it for Susan Storm, Crystal, Medusa, Jessica Jones, and any other female Marvel character when they were pregnant. Or if they are really lazy, for a over weight female character.
  15. I personally think the set is neat as it is. Bit pricy in Canada, but then again, it's no different than if you bought 3 x 6" Marvel Legends figures in Canada. My only grips of the set are: - Nick Fury should of came with the Cosmic Cube/Teseeract, especially since this figure has the same hand that the 6" Legends Red Skull from The Winter Solider line came with in order for that figure to hold his Cube(In which they gave the Red Skull a new hand for him to hold). To make it sweeter, maybe even include a Suitcase to store the Cube in(Just like in the opening part of the 1st Avengers movie). Would of given people another chance to get the Cube for their 6" figures. Maybe also give Fury a Missile Launcher similar to what he used in the movie. - There should of been 1 Hand Gun for all 3, instead of just 2 guns in the set. Just makes sense since they are all Agents, to have at least 1 sidearm for each of them, even if Colseon comes with the Destoryer Blaster. - After reading a review of the set at OAFE, I would have to agree that they should of put a good amount of weapons in the set, to help add value to it. Kind of also make the 3 Pack a Weapon Pack as well. Other than that, I do think it's still a cool set.
