  1. So than what figures would you consider "Ultimate" and what would you consider mediocre? I'm sure we would see a lot of agreeing and disagreeing on this topic. I just don't think that Hasbro intentionally puts out crap figures.

     

     

    well, obviously the "Ultimate" figures are designed to make a figure as good as it can be. We can see in the new Stormshadow that he required a brand new body.

     

    but quite often Hasbro makes a habit of putting out a figure just to make money and they don't make it as good as it can be. Look at some of the 25th figures that are made from body parts that don't really fit them. Leatherneck is notorious for this, he uses Gung-Ho's head, Buzzer's body WITH a skull on it, Snowjob's legs, etc.. none of these parts work for Leatherneck. But it was cheaper for them to do it this way instead of making him as good as possible, which would have required new sculpting

  2. and that will be hitting the bay for sure! looks like the comic has revealed a treadripper repaint and night boomer. I hope I get any pilot driver/ without getting the actual vehcile, as there are images going around of a female pilot i'd like to get.

     

     

    that's cool with me. I didn't buy the new Skystriker and I don't feel like I am missing anything by not getting the Night Boomer either. and the TreadRipper? seriously? I wouldn't buy that for 10 bucks.

     

     

    I am pleased with these choices lol

  3. I agree with each and every choice here CLAM...all except for Beachhead; did you ever see or get the comic two-pack/Hall of Heroes version? I feel like that figure is perfection.

     

    yup, I have that one from the comic pack. and I agree, it's the best version they have done.. and I really like his webgear.. However, I never liked that body for him. I especially hate the strangely shaped arms, with the bulging shoulders.

     

    I feel like the new one from the Retaliation 3-pack is the perfect body, but of course it's not the correct colors. If they repainted that body and gave him the correct webgear, it would be perfection

  4. Definitely War Machine. I'm not sold on all that... light yellow? Beige? The non-red color of the Mark 42.

     

    they should have went with something more comic-inspired

     

     

    They did it was based on the Extremis Armor they even got Adi Granov to design and do concept art. I don't mind him having many armors growing up that's one aspect of Iron Man I loved the big hall of armor filled with different types of armors. I actually geeked out at that scene in the trailer where all the armors show up to help him.

     

    Extremis armor? doesn't look like Extremis to me. Ain't this the Extremis armor?

  5. why are these "Sunbow" figures and not just classic RAH?

     

    anyhow, there are several that desperately need the "Ultimate" treatment:

     

    1983-

    Duke - his 25th figure is so outdated now. It needs a complete redo

    Destro - I always felt he had one of the worst 25th figures. It's a shame because a new one could be so awesome

    Gung Ho - He needs updated sculpting and a bigger, more muscular, body

     

    1984-

    Mutt- I never liked his fat lady thighs on the 25th figure

    Roadblock - make him bigger and badder, like the new ones

    Spirit - ugh.. his 25h figure sucks so hard

     

    1985-

    Buzzer - his 25th figure wasn't true to the original

    Cobra Eel - I never liked how they just added on his shoulder/chest piece

    Torch - the upper body is outdated, the lower body wasn't true to him

     

    1986-

    Beachhead - they still haven't done one that is accurate

    Dialtone

    Leatherneck - he got screwed by bad frankensteining for his 25th figure

    Lowlight - his POC figure isn't the classic one

    Mainframe - bad parts use

    Monkeywrench - bad figure

    Wetsuit - not accurate to his classic look

     

    1987-

    Falcon - come on man... his 25th figure was weak, his 7-pack figure is Slaughter's Marauders

    Fast Draw

    Law n Order

     

    1988 and beyond too many to list

     

    See, I think a lot of those figures on that list are just fine the way they are. When 25th first came out, everyone was going ga-ga over them. Now I see a lot of requests for redos. I say move forward and do something different.

     

    At the same time, the new figs do look completely awesome and I can't wait for them.

     

     

    you think those guys look fine? personally, I don't think alot of them can stand up next to the figures we have been getting the last few years. You can't put Sci-Fi and Artight next to Duke and not notice how bad Duke looks with his Mr.Potatohead features

     

    let me ask you then.. isn't the new Cobra Commander much much better than the old one? even though that one was "fine" too?

  6. Definitely War Machine. I'm not sold on all that... light yellow? Beige? The non-red color of the Mark 42.

     

     

    I know! it's ugly right?

     

    doesn't even look like an IM armor. Of course, I didn't like the first movie IM armors all that much either.. but at least they looked like they could be IM.

     

    they should have went with something more comic-inspired

  8. How does someone like Romo get more guaranteed money than someone like Flacco? Last time I checked Romo doesn't have any Super Bowl rings.

     

     

    I think Romo is alot better than Flacco. A LOT better.

     

    Flacco got the worst contract in NFL history... from the Raven's POV

  9. I can see either Han or Obi winning
    You have a better grasp of the current generation of fans than I do since I was sure that Han was going to win that easily.

     

     

    well you have to remember that Obi's exposure is actually much higher than Han's. Obi was pretty much the star of the new trilogy. And Ewan McGreggor was pretty great as Obi. Also, he is on the Clone Wars cartoon.

     

    I voted for Obi myself. He is my favorite of all of the Jedi, maybe all of Star Wars

  10. dangit.. I voted for Captain Rex!

     

    tough choices in this round for the light side, I can see either Han or Obi winning, same for Luke and Yoda.

     

    R2D2 will beat Leia, and Chewie will beat Ahsoka... easily.

     

     

    Vader will beat Maul, Boba will beat Jango.

     

    but I am not sure about Jabba vs Cad or Dooku vs Palpatine.
