  1. Hehe... that's actually where I picked up that classification system! @yipee@
  2. Traditionally, there are four classes of super beings: Mutants are those who are born with their abilities or develop them naturally later in life (e.g., all of the X-men). In the DC universe, these are refered to as 'Metas'. Altered humans are those who gain powers or abilities through various circumstances (often accidentally) such as the fantastic four (cosmic storm), spiderman (radioactive spider bite), Captain America (super soldier syrum) and so forth. Aliens are those whose abilities are natural for their race, or whose powers result in one way or another from being non-terrestrial (e.g., superman, Thor, Galactus). Though alien in origin, technically, by this definition, the silver surfer would be an altered human. Finally, artificial super beings are those whose powers are derived from mystical or technological sources (e.g., Iron man, Batman, Dr. Strange, Juggernaut (at least in his original form)). They may not always be refered to in the same way, and for all I know there may be some other distinctions by now, but this is how it's been since I can remember. Which is a long time.... :-( So to awnser your question. The FF are DEFINATELY NOT MUTANTS. Not by any definition. they are Altered humans. Yes, they mutated, but their powers were gained through a cosmic event, not naturally. Hope this helps!
  3. I'm so confused... I keep seeing sites listing the series as cancelled, but they were on display at comicon... what's the deal? Are we expecting them or not? Sorry if this has been posted elsewhere...
  4. Hmmm... well, I have been using it for over a year, but you do have that whole theme thing going! The D will muse over your request... @hmmm@ I believe this new avatar is sufficiently menacing.....

  6. Wow! The Jim Lee Forge and Wolverine look awesome!!! It looks like they're both using the same body sculpt, but who cares?!? I'll just be happy to finally get a decent Forge figure, and maybe this'll mean me might finally get a Jim Lee Cyclops and Jean Grey 2-pack somewhere down the line.... That'd be freakin' sweet... I know the Elektra/Ronin and Ultimate Cap and Fury packs were unveiled at the last con, but have the 2 new packs been officially announced anywhere yet?
  7. Yeah, it just depends whether you're asking in terms of collectors value or monetary value....
  8. I think you need to o out and et yourself a new keyboard....
  9. I just took a look at the newly posted First appearance Capt. America and Bucky, as well as the other series 3 stuff... I've bought some crap figures in my time just to complete a set, but this is just too much. That's it, I'm out. game over. I will not buy these. No more money for Hasbro. Say bye bye money...
  10. I have a lot of issues with Hasbro's production. I picked up series 1 and, while they're not terrible, they're certainly not worth the price hike. There's just too many backward steps from all of the advancements made by Toybiz... Limited articulation (especially in the hands and wrists) cheaper paint ops (the lack of texture in faces especially... everything's just too shiny!), and I for one miss the comic books! I'll keep buying them for now, but mostly because there are a few character's I want in the next wave. But if they change the scale or if the articulation gets any worse I'll be through. Especially since i just took a look at the great work Marvel Toys (formerly toybiz) are doing on their Indie line over at Figures.com. These look fantastic, and being a long time indie comic reader I'll be putting the bulk of my money into these!!!
  11. These look MUCH better than the last released images! @afroman@ I'm still not happy about the loss of mid-hand or finger articulation, but at least some of these guys have more appropriately sculpted hands (fists and such...). Not sure if that's the 6" or the 12" Xorn though, his finger articulation looks a little TOO good... I hope they add some texture to Thor. a simple wash or something... He looks too shiny...
  12. Forgive my naivety, these figures aren't available here yet, but does the new knee articlation replace the double joint or work with it? The ability to bend the ankle right up behind the leg is pretty important to me. I'm an articulation junkie and, for my own personal taste, articulation should mimic human movement as closely as possible. If the new joint still bends back all the way I'm all for it! If not, I'd rather have a couple of unsightly lines or bulbs if it means I can get natural looking poses. On the other hand, there is such a thing as unneccessary articulation... Like the early ML female figures that had that free rotating upper arm piece (e.g., Elektra)... I mean, you could turn it all the way around independant of the rest of the arm! I thought it was a bit cheeky of Toybiz claiming this as 2 extra points of articulation! @poop#
  13. I'm so glad to finally see someone else who wants silver sable! I think she'd make a great figure and is a cool character who is too often overlooked... Most of the other suggestions I've seen have been greta too. Mind you, I'd pretty much buy nearly anything they put out... I'd love to see some of the morlocks and the reavers as well as Sinister's Marauders.
