This has probably been asked already, but any idea if there is an Invisable Woman Variant(s)

 

Let's hope not, lest they end up as the green Quicksilvers, gold Yellow Jackets or "Dark" Jean Greys. I still have never seen any of these. What's the deal, Hasbro?

I just picked up Sue, Mole Man, Namor, Mary Jane, New Goblin and Venom... I'm not really happy with any of their paint jobs.... Mary Jane is one ugly figure... And Sue while not completely horrible looks soo much better on the back of the package (prototype) Ohwell...

These won't be replacing my FF set in the mansion display, I still prefer the FF figs I'm currently using; ML5 Reed, ML2 Johnny, box set Thing, and FF Classics clear Invisible Woman. Johnny is actually a really nice figure, but the head ruins him for me. Too bad, because I think both Icons Johnnys are really really nice, so I don't know why they went with a new head sculpt for the 6 inche version. I'd love to have a 6" of the flame-on Icon. Just like I'd love to have a 6" version of the SuperHero Showdown Thing. This Thing isn't bad, but the unpainted shiney orange is a little too Happy Meal, and I'm just not a fan or the lower jaw sticking out so far. I know he's been drawn that way, but I'm old and his 70's look is just what Thing shouldl look like to me. Reed is pretty nice too, but Hasbro's shiney plastic skin just ruins the face for me. I could see maybe doing a head swap though.

 

Doom is really nice if you keep his mask on. But again, the lack of paint is a big minus. The silver plastic has swirls in it and just looks cheap, and the lack of shading on the green cloth also cheapens the look. I've never painted a fig, but I'm definitely considering painting this Doom; he's got so much potential.

 

ML2 Namor for me is one of the best head sculpts ever, so its hard to top. As much as I'd prefer to have Namor in green trunks, this one is just too much of a step backward.

 

Mole Man is cool. He's a long awaiting character for me, and Hasbro actually did a pretty nice job on him. Yeah, his artic is pretty nill, but its Mole Man, he doesn't need much. I thought he was too big, actually I thought the scale on most of these were whack, but when I did the scale line-up I was surprised to see its actually pretty good. I think he looks good because Namor seems so petite, but he'll look fantastic in the display. Again, he'd benefit from a little paint, but he's a great fig for being Hasbro. Rotund figs are hard to artic, just look at Kingpin.

 

Surfer is really nice. The board only has one peg though, so I don't know how I'm going to keep the board on both feet when I hang him. I really don't want to glue it on. I loved photographing him, he looks mucho badass.

 

I've got big love for Ronan. Ronan rocks. Tall sombich, but he's awesome. I don't seem to notice the lack of paint as much on him for some reason. Good character, cool fig.

 

 

Your fine with how short Surfer was made once again? With no hand articulation and him being so short when I get them all in the mail next week he's going straight to the back of my display with series 5 left up front with his superior magnet board and articulated hands! I might try a head swap but I know the two silvers are different colors and I'd have to repaint it myself which I'm not a fan of.

 

 

Don't forget about new Dr. Doom with his achy, breaky, itchy trigger finger frozen into that right hand of his! He'd rather use a pistol, than shoot them electric bolts out of his armor! No wonder they keep that right hand away from view when they post his photo!

I recently got all of mine here in NE Georgia. I was worried, but I like Invisible Woman - not as pretty as she should be but at least she does not look silly. I do hate buying the same figures that I have in the Toybiz line, but I really wanted Mole man and definitely wanted Ronin! He is an awesome figure and his left leg was a little bent out, but not too noticeable. (I had this problem with the twin packs). Mr Fantastic is kinda cool and I like that he is bendy. Human Torch is ok and just like the Icon variant (the hair is a little Mr Heat miserish tho-see if anyone gets this reference). Would have liked Silver Surfer with magnetic feet. Dr Doom is not as good as Toybiz, but the way the mask is put on is cool. Submariner is a classic so I will not say anything negative. Thing is very orange and I like his face sculpt, but he is kinda small.

Let's talk about Silver Surfer's size! This guy looks small compared to the other ML past and present! He is not even 6". With the character's actual height of 6 ft 4 inches, that should translate to at least 6 1/4 " !! With the shrunken head and extra lean torso, I'd say he is not to scale. He is a "'tweener", Not a 5 inch scale nor 6 inch one! I'd say Hasbro better get their S#!& together!! This is not the first time, like Hercules being made almost 7 ft tall, and Lord Thor and Shulkie Marvel Select sized. Do those guys in Hasbro know what 6 inch, 1/12 scale means !!!

Pics don't lie! Hasbro dropped the ball big time on Surfer's hgt/scale.The great Ron Lim drew the best versions of Surfer & Thanos( 6'7 BTW) this side of George Perez! Both have been screwed up by TB/Hasbro!

Actually I believe She-Hulk is 7 foot tall, which translates well with her ML I feel.

Ok, this really pisses me off!! All of a sudden Victor Von Doom is taller than Thor! They already messed up with Herc's size the first time! How the heck did the ruler of Latveria suddenly shoot up in height and when did that happen? Did he gain godhood status and grew half a foot taller?? Hasbro's got too many issues with scale here!

Doom is 6'2", 6'7" in his armor... Thor has been mis-made by Toybiz each and every time they've done him, so Hercules (who's a Demigod...by the way?!) Is supposed to be taller than mortal men, almost eye to eye with Thor. Who was closest in ML3 and finally got his dimensions right in HML2...SCHOOLED!!!

 

 

The Thor in the Giant Man Series is rightly 6.5" which coincides with his true height of 6'6" break out a ruler or caliper! The other Thors are 7' feet and above. Marvel Legends is still in 6" scale I believe or 1/12 in modelers' jargon. Hercules should be a shade shorter than 6.5 inch Thor (Giant Man Series). And if Tony Stark is 6'1", he should 6'6" in Legends if you want to be technical about it.

 

 

You beat me to it annihilator! The Wally Thor is in perfect scale, as you stated, the other 2 Thors are too tall being in the 7 inch hgt. Hello people, Thor is 6'6, let me spell that, six foot, six inches tall! where in the world do some of you get the notion that his figures should be sculpted to depict him as being a 7 footer?

 

Herc is 6'5 & I had to customize my Herc down to size cuz Hasbro made him with such a long torso, that it put him near the 7'' scale as well. Now My Herc is scale compatible when posed with his fellow Avengers & especially Thor. ML2 Namor was also too tall, being that he's 6'2 in the comics, so I scaled him down as well. I think they all look great now when posed in group pics. I also hated the puny Vision TB made and since I doubt we'll ever see another Vision done in the ML line, I customized my own! Vision is 6'3 300lbs, now mine fits that description. Classic FA Wonderman is a commission I had done by the great Raynir!

Hmmmm, I wonder why I thought she was 7 foot tall, ah well, nevermind then.

 

 

Probably cause certain artist like to take artistic license & draw her as if she's 7ft tall!
