  6. I still dont think that headsculpt looks much like this. I like the headsculpt, it just doesn't look much like the 1st appearance Hulk though I don't doubt that is what the figure is supposed to be based on.
  7. Yesterday this Hasbro 6" Marvel Legends Grey Hulk figure showed up on the Amazon Mexico website. The figure was listed as ready to ship but sold out in 10 minutes. Today thanks to our friend Eduardo who was lucky enough to order one before it sold out and received it today, has taken some in-hand images of the figure which you can check out below. The figure is packaged on a Toy Biz vintage style cardback and features a torn shirt and bent pipe. The body of this figure is a repaint of the Hulk that original shipped in the First Appearance Wolverine 2-pack and then again in the SDCC exclusive version. This new figure does have a new head sculpt. We are still waiting for official confirmation from Hasbro, but as I understand it this figure will be offered online at Amazon and most etailers that sell Marvel Legends. When we get more information on that we will be sure to update you here.
  8. Hasbro to Phase Out Plastic from New Toy and Game Packaging. While Marvel and Star Wars aren't specifically mentioned in the press release, I have to assume these changes will be implemented for all Hasbro products which of course includes Marvel Legends. See the press release put out by Hasbro yesterday below in regards to this: Press Release: Beginning in 2020, Hasbro will begin phasing out plastic from new toy and game packaging across its portfolio of iconic brands like NERF, MY LITTLE PONY, MONOPOLY, MAGIC: THE GATHERING and POWER RANGERS PAWTUCKET, R.I.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 20, 2019-- Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS) announced today that, beginning in 2020, it plans to begin phasing out plastic from new product packaging, including plastic elements like polybags, elastic bands, shrink wrap, window sheets and blister packs. The company’s ambition is to eliminate virtually all plastic in packaging for new products by the end of 2022. “Removing plastic from our packaging is the latest advancement in our more than decade-long journey to create a more sustainable future for our business and our world,” said Brian Goldner, Chairman and CEO, Hasbro. “We have an experienced, cross-functional team in place to manage the complexity of this undertaking and will look to actively engage employees, customers, and partners as we continue to innovate and drive progress as a leader in sustainability.” Hasbro has a long-standing commitment to environmental sustainability, from eliminating wire ties in 2010 and adding How2Recycle® labeling in 2016, to the use of plant-based bioPET in 2018, and most recently, launching an industry-leading toy recycling program with TerraCycle®. Hasbro’s Sustainability Center of Excellence is charged with driving the integration of sustainability across the business, including driving sustainable packaging design principles. “Reimagining and redesigning packaging across our brand portfolio is a complex undertaking, but we believe it’s important and our teams are up for the challenge,” said John Frascotti, President and Chief Operating Officer, Hasbro. “We know consumers share our commitment to protecting the environment, and we want families to feel good knowing that our packaging will be virtually plastic-free, and our products can be easily recycled through our Toy Recycling Program with TerraCycle*.” Hasbro’s Toy Recycling Program enables consumers to send well-loved Hasbro toys and games to TerraCycle, a global leader in product recycling, who will recycle them into materials to be used in the construction of play spaces, flowerpots, park benches, and other innovative uses. Hasbro recently announced the expansion of the program to France, Germany and Brazil, and plans to expand the program to additional markets with the goal of ensuring all Hasbro toys and games are recyclable in the major markets where it does business.

  9. If you ask me Sony should just make the ultimate cash grab by selling Spider-Man back to Disney for an insane amount of money and be done with it. Disney would likely bite at any amount no matter how high if it meant getting Spider-Man back in house. As I see it Sony is in the weaker negotiating position and if they try and go on their own they are almost assuredly going to fail. If they continue to work with Disney, Disney is gonna siphon a large chunk of the profits and credit for the success anyway. Sell off high while Spider-Man and Super Hero movies are at a high make lots of money and use it to invest in something new that they can truly call their own.
  10. Sony Issues Statement About Spider-Man Blaming Disney For The Breakup Yesterday news came out that negotiations between Dinsey and Sony had broken down over Spider-Man. Sony who still holds the rights to Marvel's wall-crawler had previously worked a deal with Disney and Marvel that allowed the character to be used in Disney's MCU movies while getting creative help from the them to relaunch their own Spider-Universe after multiple failed attempts of their own. Everything seemed to be going well as the most recent Spider-Man: Far From Home movie this past weekend became Sony's highest grossing movie of all time, but then the worst seemed to happen. Word came down that Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige would no longer have any involvement in the creative process for future Spider-Man movies from Sony and that Spider-Man would no longer be able to appear in future MCU Disney movies. The initial reports indicated this failure to broker a new deal between the two studios was a result of money. Disney wanted a 50/50 co-financing arrangement between the studios, and there were discussions that this might extend to other films in the Spider-Man universe. Sony said no and walked away. Of course fans were outraged over this, many blaming Sony since it had been reported they were the ones to walk away from the negotiating table due to Disney's initial offer being unreasonable. Disney has remained silent on the issues at least in any official capacity but Sony is now firing back issuing statements on Twitter indicating it was actual Disney who is to blame for this and indicating the primary reason is that Feige is simply to busy with all his new responsibilities to work on Spider-Man, a property not directly owned by them. Presumably these new responsibilities of Feige's Sony is referring to are in regards to Disney's recently acquired Fox properties which include the X-Men and Fantastic Four. As it stands, things don't look good for Spider-Man returning to the MCU, however all of this as it plays out in the media might simply be negotiating tactics being used by one or both parties to try and put pressure on the other side to settle on a deal that is more favorable. Simply put this looks like a game of chicken going on to see which side is going to blink first. As it looks to me, both parties are being greedy and in the end it will be the fans who suffer.

  13. Thats really how I am seeing it, a game of chicken is being played to see who blinks first.
  14. Looks like Sony and Spider-Man will be going forward without Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige being involved. This is over Disney and Sony Pictures not being able to come to an agreement over new terms that would have given Disney a co-financing stake in the Spider-Man Universe. According to Deadline, Disney wanted a 50/50 co-financing arrangement between the studios, and there were discussions that this might extend to other films in the Spider-Man universe. Sony flat out said no despite Far From Home becoming their biggest box office grossing film ever just this past weekend. It's being reported that Sony has plans for two more Spider-Man films which have director Jon Watts at the helm and star Tom Holland as the web crawler, but unless something changes, Feige will have no creative involvement in those films. It's not clear to me from the Deadline article what this means for Spider-Man's involvement in the overall MCU going forward but if the two sides can't come together and see eye-to-eye on Money, my guess is it won't be good. Besides Spider-Man, Sony is already well on it's way with a second Venom movie which will see Andy Serkis taking the directors chair and Morbius with Jared Leto. Other Spider themed movies that have been tossed around include Silver Sable and Black Cat and a Sinister Six movie which last reported had been shelved.
  15. That was my thought, if or when the do the twins it would make more sense to me to do them in the same wave.
