    Marvel Legends, Comics, 80's Toys, and watching Future Cyborg on Youtube!
  1. Agree. I kind of skipped through the Star Wars live panel in SWInsider.com and just finished watching the Transformers panel on Tformers.com. Looking forward to the Marvel panel!
  2. I am loving this set but the only problem for me is Colossus' left hip is loose right out of the box. How is yours? And has anyone else this situation with Colossus?
  3. Thanks for the update JayC. I was starting to get antsy that we hadn't seen anything yet.
  4. I'm going to make a prediction that we will be getting a character from X-Men 2099 revealed this weekend. My reasoning is Marvel recently added X-Men 2099 #1 to their free Marvel Comics app, and while they add new books all the time, my instincts tell me this addition is important. Last year when they revealed Nighthawk, issue #1 of the 1998 Nighthawk mini series was released on the marvel Comics app, and in my opinion X-Men 2099 is too random an issue to release without reason. We'll find out tomorrow for sure though. Can't wait!
  5. Great breakdown on the history of the figure and I'm in complete agreement about the 80th being the absolute, hands down, best version. I like the other ones as well and think they're great in their own way, but nothing is touching the 80th Anniversary Iron Man. Although I would love to see him with the yellow instead of gold armor like the 2 pack figure as featured above (Sorry, double post)

  7. Yes! I have been waiting so patiently for Hasbro to make the New Warriors. Just give me the characters and costumes from the first twenty-five issues. I'd love to see Marvel Boy with the full masked head plus a masked head with his hair exposed. We'll need Nova's red outfit from issue #1 and his blue/yellow costume. Speedball should come with some bubble effects too.
  8. I think both are great figures on their own merit. And of course the costume differences really skew as to whether you prefer the classic look vs the modern look.
  9. I agree. And I believe Best Buy does it the same way? Regardless, I'm tempted to snag some sets and take advantage of the 15% off.
  10. In upstate NY (Saratoga area) I've been making daily toy runs, and even during a trip to PA while visiting family I have been hitting the stores, and able to find all of these figures at Target. Thor and Colossus/Juggernaut were still in the back but the employees were very helpful about locating and fetching them for me. I've also seen the retro wave at my local GameStop except Storm.
  11. I chose Arcade, Avalanche, Banshee, Deathbird, Firestar, Mesmero, Syrin, and Sunspot.
  12. I'm in complete agreement, brother! I grew up reading Classic X-Men so this is the perfect Colossus for me. The "X" belt does irritate my OCD a little, but not even close enough for this to be a real problem for me. With the classic TRU Cyke we got two years ago, the tiger stripe Wolverine from last year, and that we're getting this classic Colossus and Nightcrawler this year, I am so friggin' excited! Now can we please get a Cockrum style Storm?!?!
  13. The differences go deeper than an artist's interpretation, and here's the break down as I see it: The 2-pack figure has the same pointed shoulders, wrist gauntlets, boots with yellow tops and three black marks, and belt as the Cockrum design. (Although the belt buckle has an "X" in the middle instead of a circular shape). The 90's version has squared shoulders and boot tops, an "X" belt buckle with cylinders wrapping around his belt, and the wrist gauntlets are segmented.
  14. @RecklessEndangerment @Starlord67 You're both right, and I'm surprised how many people have mistaken the Cockrum/Byrne version as the Jim Lee design. I do hope that Hasbro gets around to it one day but I'm excited to get the classic Colossus.
