icons vs six inch

Building a giant Marvel Universe is my goal. I have been, and still do, go for the 6 inch Legends. I pass on the variants and Ultimate ones, and just keep hoping they add more new characters, like the Inhumans, Defenders, and others.

 

I have not bought an icon simply becasue the massive amount of 6 inches take up a lot of room, and the big guys would be too much.

 

That said, I am an avid Gambit collector, and would buy a few Gambit icons if he were made!

You know, It would be cool to get some of the giant size figures that might never see BAF status in the regular line done as Icons.

 

I'd buy Bill Foster Goliath, Clint Barton Goliath & Atlas to name a few.

 

Dare I dream of an Eternity or Celetial figure from there? Nah, probably not...

i've been saying that since day 1 of the icons line, i don't know why they can't give us a 20 dollar 12 inch Foom but they can give us a 60 dollar 6 inch blob.....

This thread cracks me up. They're too expensive...yet they're twice as big and cost twice as much which seems perfect to me. How much should they cost? They're too big...yet people say there is not enough released. Well, if they are too big to begin with, would you actually collect more then if they released more? LOL. No wonder no one listens to collectors...they don't really know what they want at all.

 

I can understand why people prefer the 6"...they're the standard, they've been around for years and many people don't want to change scales. All those reasons make sense to me. The rest...well, they're completely counterintuitive.

 

Me personally, I would prefer 2 decent Icons for $40 over 6-8 average figures and a lame BAF for $60-$80 any day of the week, but that's just me.

I am crazy about the Icons line.

 

When I saw Phoenix, Colossus, and Dark Phoenix, I could not stop drooling!

 

I will continue to buy this line and focus only on the character that I like.

 

Here's hoping they make more females like First Appearance Storm, Spider-Woman Jessica Drew, Ms Marvel, Invisible Woman, Jim Lee Rogue,and SHe-hulk.

 

Would also love to see a Namor in the green trunks Icon, First Appearance Gambit, Archangel/Angel, and Ice-man.
