So No Tornato

So No Tornato... wouldnt it be easier just to make one REALLLLLLLLLLY long post replying to each and every person's reply that rubbed you the wrong way???

 

Actually, if you re-read the thread carefully, you'll see that your assumption is incorrect. I haven't been "rubbed the wrong way". To the contrary, others have chosen to air their hurt feelings (based on my original posts, they had apparently been "rubbed the wrong way"), and their responses begged for replies...which they got...and which they didn't like. Too bad.

 

As I said before, I really could care less whether someone disagrees with me. I simply find all of the huffing and puffing to be highly amusing.

I think his primary suggestion was to reply to everyone in a single post rather than multitudes of posts after posts. But of course that's your prerogative.

You must be to utter such sanctimonious profundities.

 

When the words "sanctimonious profundities" are used in a thread about TOYS, you knnow somethings gone terribly wrong @loll@

 

About wave 2 (we ARE still talking about wave 2 right?). I think those pictures ROCK and this wave is lookin' pretty sharp (Juggernaut-oh, yeah!). Emma's head's a LITTLE small. That's really the only complaint I have about anyting from Hasbro so far. The down side? I'm preparing to move out, and this action figure adiction REALLY needs to stop!

Something in these figures lack that thing that brought the toybiz figures to life. They are missing something and I can't figure out what it is exactly. Its like when you forget to put that secret ingredient into your cookies and you can taste that something is a little 'off'.

 

You must be thinking of soft plastic bow-legs, frozen joints, loose joints, abstract paint apps., figures coming out of package broken, figures broken inside package, entire waves that barely make retail, and "chase" figures that are seen less than bigfoot.

 

Those were the days.

But you're not bitter, right? :P

The Quicksilver, Jean Grey and Juggernaut are vast improvements from previous shots, particularly the Jean Grey. Thor, YellowJacket and Xorn all look just as good as ever. Jury is still out for me on the She-Hulk. I really do not like the smilely face look. The Wolverine is just down right aweful with that head sculpt. Looking forward to the Blob though.

Wow, that sounds REALLY deep. I'm so impressed. Are you a student?? You must be to utter such sanctimonious profundities. And of course, you place yourself in the latter camp - those "predisposed" to wisdom? What a surprise!
Actually, I'm not a student.

 

And I don't put myself in either camp. I don't believe anyone can truly know if they are wise or not until they are near death and can look back on the full measure of their life. My point, which you seemed to have missed, was that you cannot possible know your level of wisdom, nor that of anyone else. To say you are wiser because you are older is, as you would say, a sanctimonious profundity. Not to mention completely lacking in any factual basis, since you have no way of knowing which members are older or younger than yourself. Likewise, I believe any thinking person would agree that claiming to have more wisdom than someone else based on a few lines of opinion is, at best, baseless arrogance.

 

Regarding the US Senate...you know, you're probably right. But I prefer our Senate to any limp-wristed, appeasing, socialist "Parliament" (such a funny word!) of Europe

 

I would say they're not all that different in composition. But I suppose that's another conversation entirely.

 

 

 

As for your issue here with Jigsaw, allow me to help you out with that 'critical reading.'

 

nd TOY-BIZ showed these pics, practically everyone would be overcome with joy
But since it's HASBRO, I can't help but think there's an ingrained prejudice.

 

 

Thus, nearly everyone who does not like these images and is not impressed by them has an ingrained prejudice. By your own words, that is the only reason that 'practically everyone' is not overcome with joy. That is -exactly- what you said. Of course, it's a stupid thing to say so now you will attempt to twist your own words to make it seem like that isn't what you said at all. But the proof is in the pudding, as they say. It's right there for anyone to read.

 

But hey, if you want to try to say that the above is NOT actually what you meant, well - good luck with that.

yes,.... toybiz figures never looked as good as the protos... but that was rarely because the figure had been changed in both sculpt and paint apps..

 

I can't ever remember Toybiz changing the heads on an entire wave of figures in order to appeal to 3 year olds who might be afraid of serious faces.

 

And the paint they have put on their recent figures is horrible... or the lack of... Take Icons Thor, I loved the protoes, and thought he would be the best Icon yet... However, he has absolutely no paint on his skin and the shade they chose makes him look like he is dieing of lukemia.

as for the defenders... or defender.... that statement is rediculous... everybody is against this line because its Hasbro? No... we would have the same complaints if it was Toybiz... that being said, the complaints are voiced more harshly because Hasbro has a history of letting down its customers in recent years. I think they stopped trying just before GiJoe was cancelled in the early '90s

How come the proto's outfit looks black and the actual figure is clearly blue? LOL

Other than that, Thor looks to be a really good example of how good Hasbro COULD be for the line. A lick of paint here and there and he's perfect, which is no better or worse than MOST ToyBiz offerings.

All but 2 toy lines i buy are from hasbro. Star Wars, Transformers, GI Joes, and now Marvel Legends. I have no problems with Hasbro currently, I think they're doing a great job on all their lines, but 1. Marvel Legends. So there's no blind hate for the new company here, they're just doing a really crappy job. I have hopes that the sales figures will prove to them that they need to do better, because right now there's a ton of banshees, beasts, emmas, and a couple hulks clogging pegs with hercules and iron man selling decent. That plus there's like a thousand spider-man figures gone untouched. I'm very disappointed with how hasbro started out this series, still if this was toybiz and legends 16/17 I'd be equally pissed. These toys just don't look right, bad paint, bad articulation, weird hands, higher price point, no comic, small bafs even though they raised the price and switched to less plastic packaging.... and don't give me that bs that toybiz was going to do the same, you can't always believe everything Jesse says. He'll say whatever to get you to keep buying Legends, and many times when he says stuff like... "Yes both chase power man and chase psylocke are on their way and should be shipping at any time" well we know that wasn't true ;)

 

Still I did buy a Hercules and I think he's a great figure. Well constructed and sculpted, except maybe the stupid grin, but I don't mind that as not all my figures need to be so serious... Excellent stability, these figures could be dropped off the roof of my house and survive, whereas most toybiz figures are already loose out of the package.

 

Still I wouldn't have traded great paint aps, a comic, and better facial/hand sculpting, and the extra arituclation we had for a more stable figure. Only a handful of toybiz figures gave me problems, the majority are great.

 

I really hate the hands though, if they wanted to lose the articulation well that's fine, but what's up with giant cave man hands on all the figures with the hands wide open like they're about to slap someone? Hercules hands are fine, he has something to hold (even though he still can't hold it!) so he has close gripped hands.

 

ML 1 with hasbro is like a 3/10 from me, 2 looks worse. Lets hope hasbro does something or it's their own money they're throwing away. That license must have been expensive to do such a crappy job...

For all the nay-sayers out there, just wait till you see what Hasbro is giving us at ToyFair 06. I spoke with Jesse Falcon over the phone and Hasbro has sorted out all the problems, especially the paint ops. Series 1 was done in the middle of the 'change over' and rather quickly, that's why we ended up with the lackluster finished product. They realize that ML needs collector-quality paint apps. They already have the quality of plastic and design down but everything else IS going to work. And I am soooooo please they're redoing some particular characters!

if wave 1 was done quickly, and thats th reason it sucks... then why are they showing equally lackluster pics of wave 2? Will the final products actually be good, with good paint apps and the original head sculpts?

 

Will they stop making cheesy head sculpts in the future?

Wouldn't that be ToyFair '07?

 

And I'm glad that they are trying to up the quality. I've been hopeful about that since day one. But that doesn't change that the pics we -currently- have are still just as bad as they were before, and just as bad as wave 1 looks. So, it's still apt to say they look sucky. Hopefully, as you say, the final product will be a lot better. I still am not interested in figures with the Sigma Six arms, but otherwise I'll be a lot more interested in Hasbro's ML once they have better paint apps.

 

Unfortunately, I probably won't care overmuch either way until maybe wave 3. Wave 2 doesn't have any figures I need except for Blob. Besides fodder that is, but when you're buying a figure for the fodder, you don't tend to care much what the paint looks like.

So, what you're saying is Hasbro crapped out wave 1, and rushed it to make a quick buck, thinking we'd all go for it because it had the name Marvel Legends, and now they're finally realizing we're not blind?

Actually, I never gave a second thought as to whether others would express their opinions. I guess I'm confident enough in my own opinions that I don't get bent out of shape if others express theirs

 

Well Sir, you obviously do, or you wouldn't be branding "Practically everyone" who disagreed with you as having "Ingrained predjudice".

 

Don't get me wrong, I think it's cute that you're this passionate about toys.

 

You're completely misrepresenting what I said. Here's the quote you're referencing:

 

Come on! In all honesty, if Marvel announced that they were giving the license back to TOY-BIZ, and TOY-BIZ showed these pics, practically everyone would be overcome with joy, and would talk about how TOY-BIZ had "improved upon what HASBRO had started...". But since it's HASBRO, I can't help but think there's an ingrained prejudice.

 

The recent poll on this board said that 16% of LEGENDS collectors were not going to buy HASBRO figures. If accurate, all I can say is AWESOME!...more figs for me, and easier to find.

 

Nowhere in this quote do I say anything remotely similar to "Practically everyone" who disagreed with you [me] as having "Ingrained predjudice".

 

You either never learned the fine art of critical reading, or you're purposely attempting to distort what I said.

 

In any event, you failed on both counts.

 

Now...do you actually have any insight to add...or would you prefer to flail away blindly?

 

Hasbro killed GI Joe for me about four years ago, but from what I can tell so far, they've totally redeemed themselves with the 25th Anniversary Joe's...and I give them alot of credit for that...so I'm not bitterly biased towards them.

 

However, their ML's have sucked so far. The two figures I wanted the most from wave 1 were Banshee and Emma...I bought them, and hated them both, so I didn't buy any other figures from that wave. So far, the only figures I really want from wave 2 are Quicksilver and She-Hulk, so I will buy them, but if they are as bad as Banshee and Emma, I won't be buying the rest of the wave to get a Blob (whom I also want to fill in my collection). I took this same approach with Toybiz's ML's, and somehow, I always ended up buying almost every figure in every wave, just because they always looked so dang cool...wish I could say the same for Hasbro. :(

I think that comment was a bit harsh and narrow sighted....relax, take a chill pill and get over your self.

I don't see how it's narrow-sighted or harsh. They took over the rights to Marvel in 2007, and as soon as the new calendar year turned over, Hasbro's Marvel merchandise was clogging store shelves. Actually, they revealed enough merchandise the second half of 2006 to keep store shelves clogged for the entire year of 2007. They're cutting corners on paint-apps, articulation, and overall design...similiar to what Toybiz did with the last few waves of ML. Why? Because both companies are trying to make fast cash...Toybiz, because they knew they were loosing the franchise, and wanted to get as much out of it as they could before it ended, and Hasbro, because that's what they have done best for the last couple of decades. The only problem is, the corner-cutting was WAY more apparent in Hasbro's first wave of ML's than it was Toybiz's last few waves.

 

I really don't see how anyone can look at figures like Banshee and Emma, and think they're even on par with what we've received from Toybiz in the past. Have any of you, who are so quick to defend Hasbro, even posed them next to figures like Series 6 Wolvie, Nightcrawler, Storm, etc? They don't even look like the same friggin toyline, save the similar articulation. They look like cheap knock-offs.

 

I'm still keeping my fingers crossed that Hasbro will come through, and like I said, I'll pick up some figures I've been waiting for for along time, such as Quicksilver and She-Hulk...but if they aren't improving, I won't be spending money on entire waves like I did with Toybiz.

 

So, if "getting over myself" involves pumping all of my toy funds into a line that is crap, I'll guess I'll just settle with being stuck on myself, and continue sinking my cash into my vintage RAH GI Joe collection.

Any word as to whether or not FA Storm is still being released in series 3 or 4?
