  1. Draven and I got some figures from the same case and here are the parts that came with the ones I got. I'm sure his are probably the same. The chest and neck are purple, the arms are pink..
  2. Those are the variants. The regular assostments is: Zemo Falcon Longshot Psylocke Luke Cage FA Iron Man
  3. It's not the Astonishing costume though, it's the one he used in NA. close enough to tb's icon, except the belt. Well , they are vitually the same except the belt, boot top and glove tops.
  4. Well, after having the new Hasbro ML figs and having time to either warm up to them or realize they are crap I can finally have an opinion. First impression is that although these are decent figures they are not Marvel Legends. Aesthetically, these don't really fit in with the TB figs. They are just too different. It's like comparing DC Direct to DCSH, at first glace it works, but upon closer inspection it's just, well...off. The first wave ... bad tidings when the first batch contains a repaint. Graded on a scale from 1-10. Planet Hulk - OK I see the need for this character, but giving us a repaint was a cheap way to kick off a new and shiny license. A good mold and nice new pieces, but I feel it was cheesy to use this mold. 6.5 Banshee - Big head, no collar, yellow molded parts are greenish, yellow paint and yellow fleshtone are virtually inseperable. 5 Emma -No as bad as some claim, still not really in scale with the TB ladies-no other comments on this, everything has been said. 7 Herc - Good mold, bad wrist and terrible color on the skin. Chester Cheetah, son of Zeus. 7 Beast - Good mold, although a little small. Great paint on this too. 9 Iron Man - Eh, could have been better, but could have been worse. Tony is a great example of why these don't fit with the TB figs, none of them had vac metal. This really sets him apart from other Iron Man figs ...and not in a good way. 7 Annihilus - Pink...PINK and green, wings are flimsy, collar doesn't really lock down and he has a balance problem. 6 And as far as the rest of the Hasbro Marvel stuff... Spidey Signature - Why? These are a rehashed concept from a failed (although hit and miss at the time) line from 1996. With the vast improvements in articulation since the 90's, I fail to see why they chose this format. To capture the Mego crowd? Well, listen up, these ain't Megos folks, and they never will be. The value of Mego toys is the nostalgia, not the characters, Hasbro you can't recapture nostalgia for a 35 yr old product with a cheap imitation. Spidey Origins - A whole line of repaints. With the GREAT stuff that TB was pumping out at the end, this is a huge letdown. The Venom is a repaint of a 6 yr old figure. All the Spideys aren't any of the really great TB molds, and the rest are bleh...(except Iron Spidey, I guess at least it's a new costume!) Superhero Squad - Good little chibi figs, but they don't replace Spidey and Friends. Icons - I think this line is really hit and miss, even when TB had them. Ghost Rider - ToyBiz molds, they look like TB and play like TB, I like them and wish Hasbro would use this formula on the rest of there Marvel Lines. Aren't they going to reduce all the movie lines to 5 inches soon? Consistency anyone? Heroes - A whole line of repain...wait, didn't I already use that line? Repaints of 6-inchers that will transition to 5-inchers, great way to make a consistent line! Magneto - No resculpting, although he looks cool I ain't buyin. Cap - WHY? Again, what is it, 4th time for this mold? Cyclops - This ain't Ultimate Cyclops! Wolvie - Wait a repaint of the brown Wolvie into a Astonishing Wolvie when there is already a SPECIFICALLY SCULPTED body type for an Astonishing Wolvie? HUH?!? Iceman - Ok good concept but, without a new specific headsculpt it ain't Bob. So, they ditched great lines for repaint lines. They killed: X-men - which was AWESOME!!! Fantastic Four Animated - Which looked great Spidey and Friends - A great line for kids and collectors A really good Spider-Man Line - for a really bad Spider-Man line Superhero Showdown - Cool figs at a good size I don't know. I see how Hasbro treated the Star Wars property around the release of the Phantom Menace and how in took several years for the line to recover. I see the way Hasbro treat TF fans with repaint after repaint and terrible distribution on new stuff. I guess I'm hopeful, but wiser to really expect any better. I've been collecting too long (26 yrs out of 33) to be anything but highly skeptical of Hasbro and their tactics.
  5. Draven, You must have gotten there right after I left, because I went and got a PH, Herc and MM Kitty & Beast yesterday at about 4:15(central time). You named off the figures I left!
  6. Opelika. I go at least twice a week . I only live about 15 minutes away.
  7. Draven Target has them. I just got back and I picked up Emma, Banshee, Iron Man, and Beast. There were 2 Hulk silver arms there. Also they has the new MiniMates with Beast and Kitty.
  8. Yeah, the big cloth costume guys...is there a smaller one? Besides the Marvel Select?
  9. Here's the 96 and 98 Beast Wars. The four on the right have no names, they are from 96. The three on the left are TM Blackarachnia, TM Dinobot, and TM Scorpinok. These came out in 98. I found a Rattrap unaltered. Here ya go: And lastly the Checker's/Rally's Rhinox. Please sit down and get slightly inebriated before viewing this as you may go mad. WARNING: There may me gnashing of teeth and self-inflicted wounds brought about by viewing this. Proceed at your own risk.
  10. I found one at the local Balls to the Wal-Mart. He wasn't that impressive. I passed on it and bought the Wolverine instead. What a waste of money! The articulation on these sucks! * single jointed elbows and knees * no swivels on the legs except a ball-joint on the ankle that is useless * old school swivel neck-no up or down movement * gap in the upper arm swivels Posing is limited to squatting or straaight leg and any kind of crouch is out of the question! I will not be getting any more of these.
  11. New Mutants Warlock A HUGE Juggernaut Thunderbolts Atlas Ultimates Ant Man/Giant Man
  12. I really don't know what you're talking about. Are these fanmodes or official? I've got the instuction pamphlets for these somewhere, but I'd have to find them to make the mega modes.
  13. Here's Beast Machines. These are ALOT better than any of the others. I customized Megs, Primal, Rattrap, Blackarachnia, and Nightscream. Unfortunatly, Rattrap and Nightscream can no longer be transformed as I had to remove parts from them.
  14. Armada first. Let the crappy-ness begin!!!
  15. The Beast Machines Beast Wars or Armada? I've got them all, just let me know which, you want pics of.
  16. You mean these wastes of plastic?
  17. Thanks!! Oh, I absolutely love the DC Direct!!! I have 3 of them. I just wanted a ML/DCSH style which we will NEVER get, so I'm making my own.
  18. Here is the man Jack Knight, the best Starman EVER! Still have to finish the jacket... http://i116.photobucket.com/albums/o5/jack...an/IMG_0148.jpg http://i116.photobucket.com/albums/o5/jack...an/IMG_0147.jpg http://i116.photobucket.com/albums/o5/jack...an/IMG_0157.jpg http://i116.photobucket.com/albums/o5/jack...an/IMG_0160.jpg http://i116.photobucket.com/albums/o5/jack...an/IMG_0161.jpg http://i116.photobucket.com/albums/o5/jack...an/IMG_0164.jpg
  19. Did these awhile back. Colossus is the oldest probably 7 yrs ago. Kitty about 1 yr ago. Kurt about six months. Nightcrawler: http://i116.photobucket.com/albums/o5/jack...an/IMG_0138.jpg http://i116.photobucket.com/albums/o5/jack...an/IMG_0140.jpg http://i116.photobucket.com/albums/o5/jack...an/IMG_0141.jpg http://i116.photobucket.com/albums/o5/jack...an/IMG_0142.jpg Colossus: http://i116.photobucket.com/albums/o5/jack...an/IMG_0143.jpg http://i116.photobucket.com/albums/o5/jack...an/IMG_0144.jpg http://i116.photobucket.com/albums/o5/jack...an/IMG_0145.jpg Kitty: http://i116.photobucket.com/albums/o5/jack...an/IMG_0151.jpg http://i116.photobucket.com/albums/o5/jack...an/IMG_0155.jpg
  20. Nope, I can't transform him back or I ruin the paint. http://i116.photobucket.com/albums/o5/jack...an/IMG_0134.jpg http://i116.photobucket.com/albums/o5/jack...an/IMG_0131.jpg
  21. Thanks guys!!! This is my first TF custom, although I've done alot of Marvel and DC characters in the past. I think I'm going to paint the silver parts over with silver paint to cover up the remnants of red on the torso. I'm also going to get some reprolabels to finish off the detail.
  22. Good idea, here ya go: http://i116.photobucket.com/albums/o5/jack...Thunderedit.jpg http://i116.photobucket.com/albums/o5/jack...an/IMG_0117.jpg http://i116.photobucket.com/albums/o5/jack...an/IMG_0129.jpg
  23. Thanks man, but I still can't get it to work.
  24. I can't get the picture to load!!!! Any Help?
