Newbie (1/14)



  1. Sunfire did not sell well online, who's to blame? The fans? He won an online poll, what gives? Poll results can be skewed by multiple voting by unscrupulous individuals. Well first of all, the character is not a top tier character (C-list). Not many kids really know this character and looks like just another Human Torch. There's only so many collectors who are interested in this figure. And outside of X-Men fans or comic aficionados does not have enough visibility to kids. Not in Marvel cartoons, not in movies. How many Marvel posters show this character? Not many. It's better to have some comic book insert with the product like Secret Wars or Star Wars 2 packs. ToyBiz proved having a comic insert is a winning formula and sold this in stores. If not, go the Marvel Classic Figurine route and add a descriptive insert of the character.
  2. We should respect the poll results as factual. I am of the belief that the results reflects actual opinion and we should now support the line if it is to survive. I just need the Valkyrie to have a tweak with double joint knees to make it more desirable for me. Deadpool would be a welcome addition for my shelf next to my 2 pack Cable. Black Widow replaces that ugly whore from 2004. Truthfully, I voted for Havok, Fantomex and Brother Voodoo, but we should keep the line afloat by supporting it. Griping and moaning won't do anything and only sow more discontent at Hasbro and thereby build less support for the Legends line. The new sculpts happen to be a real major improvement over the outdated releases of these two characters, so I have no objection to these selections. As SDCC showed, they mentioned the line can only survive with our continued support, and they delivered us the prototypes they worked hard to show to keep the line alive and running. Next year will be a crucial year for Legends and the ball is now on our court . . .
  3. Gladly. Here ir is: http://www.comicartfans.com/GalleryRoom.asp?GSub=30331
  4. Just saw that Bulldozer of the Wrecking Crew will be joining the Secret Wars 2 packs along with Ben Grimm, Mohawk Storm, Enchantress and Spider Woman. He joins the confirmed team members, Piledriver, Thunderball. The Wrecker, Absorbing Man, Titania and She Hulk are sure to be not far behind. Check ComicArtFans.com. Too bad that Hasblow did not even consider these for Marvel Legends releases.
  5. Me too, they need to resurrect that Titanium Man and Crimson Dynamo from whatever backroom they're storing these in. Since Iron Man 2 Movie is due out in 2010, talk about the right time to capitalize and do comic based figures. Historically, movie figures do well at the height of the movie release, but after that pans out after film has run its course. What really sells are the classic comic based characters related to the movie icon. This could jumpstart the whole 6" line. Who wouldn't want a classic 8" Titanium Man or a 6" Crimson Dynamo?? Case in point Spider-Man classics line. They sell well even without the SM movies (granted if the sculpts are nicely made). It boggles the mind that the figures being planned are the tiny 4 inchers when they could make a killing with the bigger versions and amaze us with killer sculpts of these two characters. Even the Hulk Movie would have made better sales with 8" Hulks and 9" Abominations (sold even as deluxe figures). Those were amazin' sculpts in my opinion. I mean they could make all these 10" Megatron or Optimus Prime from the Transformers Movie and highly detailed whereas the Iron Monger from the first movie we got was just undersized (he could have been an impressive 9 inch behemoth) and Iron Man Mk III was as skinny as Daredevil when standing next to Cap. He really needed to be beefier and make us believe there is a full sized man inside that armour (like the Dr. Doom figure was). Hasbro needs to think BIG not small, Who needs these tiny 4" movie figures ??? At least make a 6 inch scale Deluxe version. Hasbro just don't make any sense or whoever is in charge of this.
  6. I don't like the long neck either and anorexic waistline.
  7. Sorry to burst your bubble but Hasbro already mentioned the Crimson Dynamo and Titanium Man photos were inadvertenlty leaked by mistake and at present they cannot find retailers willing to distribute any more 6" Iron Man line figures. They will be retired for now.
  8. H A S B R O Marvel marketing strategy: Marvel Universe - Offer "A" list characters and offer full support and resources. Flood market with this line. Marvel Legends - Show 18 obscure, less known, not in demand characters with rehashed body parts and repaints and offer fan poll to produce 3 + 3 characters in limited release 2 packs in 2010. Also, kill Titanium Man and Crimson Dynamo prototypes accidentally posted in ToyArk because it generates too much fan interest. These would reduce tooling costs and paying high sculptors costs.
  9. He is also my default Hulk because he is just HUGE as should be the case !
  10. What do you mean the guy's small? He's bigger than Hugh Jackman for Chrissake's !! The guy's 6'3" and not at all skinny. Check out YouTube and you'll see what I mean. He just needs to grow a longer mane and pump more iron. Otherwise, do we need another Tyler Mane (or a WWF wrestler) that would be insane . . . . He played Kirk's father in the new Star Trek Movie, not Capt James Kirk himself. It was an awesome movie by the way.
  11. He is too small. Almost as short as X:O Tiger stripe Wolverine. He doesn't work at all for me.
  12. Cable could be played by an athlete like Brett Fahre.
  13. Too big and bulky, and his noggin' looks like a bodybuilder on 'roids. Big pass.
  14. MS Hulk is a good figure to serve as Movie version. As you remember in the movie, he towers over Emil Blonsky. Just remember, the madder he gets the stronger he is !! He is at the upper limits of anger to achieve that size !! Savage Hulk he is.
  15. I get my older figures from EBay through a lot of patience and perseverance. You don't have to bid if the price for you is too high. There are other sellers putting the same figure up for bid. So you have to work it. I always look at the loose figures to get my needs. If you are into a sealed MOC figures, then good luck. You will pay higher price for sure. But then you could get lucky and stumble into a good deal. Best to buy on EBay when new waves are hitting stores and their is less activity on the site and everyone's saving their mony and out and concentrating on buying the new releases and something will fall into your lap! That is how I got the Juggernaut ($36) and Fearsome Foes Rhino ($15), two of the best sculpts ever. Now if I can only get my hands on Deadpool !!
