  1. WASP Raider looks good....though it seems like the first one should be called WASP and this one Swarm. Also they probably should've gone with blue or bluish tints on all the yellow parts for the Wasp Raider. Looks great! My order for some already arrived and my Swarm trooper is on the way. Still ticked at BBTS 'cause I ordered from them first, 2 years ago now, and they tell me they're still waiting on their shipment. Bah.
  2. Jeez, does this guy look like a drugged-out, sick, derelict of a human...I guess this version of Batman has no playboy millionaire....
  3. I get that the classified isnt cartoon based; my comment had to do with the cartoon where the chestplate is clear and the visor is red. Just an observation.
  4. As I said, I was referring to the cartoon, where the chestplate is clear and the visor is red.
  5. Yeah....why would they change the visor from red to silver, or make the chest plate exposed like that? At the very least, the cover they provided should have been clear, not solid black (in keeping with your cartoon).
  6. Well at least it looks like its ready to go. I've had these on order with BBTS for well over a year now and thought they'd never get here.
  7. damn thing's been on order from BBTS for almost 2 years now.....still waiting on my shipping notice!
  8. I wish they'd made an alt head with the shiny black skullcap. He didn't actually wear that with this particular outfit but I'd love to have it anyway.
  9. The Rancor was an overpriced cash grab. What worked for the Sentinel and Galactus (and I maintain those were overpriced as well, but compare this thing to those, and you see how ridiculous that price tag is) doesn't work for every project they have out there. To add insult, Hasbro tossed out tier figures that are already available, instead of giving them the obvious ones they wanted, then slapped the fans' faces with a sheet of cardboard, passing itself off as a "diorama". That is some straight up gall right there. The GI Joe Striker is also clearly overpriced. It does have some nice features but if its funded, its barely gonna squeak by and likely those unlocks will not be met. The GI Joe line has been so poorly handled and botched every step of the way. They're only just now starting to listen to fans and fix some of those problems. At least, it looks that way. No one will know until the figures are actually in hand. They could price the Striker at something much more reasonable, and do enough of a good job so that their next project could be a Striker scaled for their 6" line. Money in the bank. The real issue with these projects is this: Hasbro/Haslab is a business, and that "For Fans" tagline is a joke. Its For Profit. And that's not a bad thing; they're gonna do what they can, to make as much money off as little quality work as they can. Its up to the fans to let them know, they're not gonna plunk down cash for just whatever they put out.
  10. I can see why he's (Ricky) asking if he's naked, 'cause in that cartoon, Ming has a deep green bodysuit, with yellow collar, epaulets and gloves, pine green cape and boots. This picture has the body suit almost the same color as his bare face, and the collar is a kind of orange. Its not the same as the cartoon.
  11. This thing was overpriced from day one. I felt the Sentinel and Galactus were overpriced too but at least these had accurate colors, great articulation, great working lights. Bottom line though is that Hasbro didn't listen to its fans and what THEY wanted. I don't normally cheer for anyone to fail but in this case, use it as a teaching point. Why a multibillion $$ corporation needs to crowdsource anything makes no sense to me, but at the very least give the fans what they want. They wanted the Keeper, Oola, correct paints on the Rancor, and at a reasonable price. Now they can regroup, come back next year, and do better.
  12. Once again another great figure from a body they've been using since 2015 (this is their 1.0, if you will). Amazing what one can do with a brand new head and some accessories. Mythic Legions runs a bit higher in price and this one is really up there for a standard buck; normally this would be at the $30.00 mark, but this one is around $50.00 for a 6" figure. But as always, the fan who's on the fence needs to take in mind that these always skyrocket up in the after market. Beautiful work!
  13. They do have plans on making a dragon. Thus far every character they've hinted at, they've done. One of the problems with the dragon is going to be how its shipped. If you look at the scale of the regular line, the Ogres, and then the Trolls, the dragon is gonna be scaled accordingly. They're not gonna do a Marvel Legends Ant-Man/Giant Man type, in comparison to the rest of the 6" line. They want to go more massive and more in scale with what they have. Something that massive is gonna require some serious packaging. Probably gonna have to come in 2 separate boxes. Oh, and they also have one last Horseman to do (they have War, Famine, and just now Pestilence, so Death is last). Dragon will probably show after that.
  14. Its baffling that Legends didn't make special magic effects for their upcoming "classic" Dr. Strange. This is what I had in mind. Word of advice to anyone who's thinking of getting in on Mythic Legions: they only increase in price later.
  15. They are killing it over there. Also don't skip on the sick Pale horse and the reptillian dragon/ogre.....I'm all in.
  16. Mythic Legions is just an unstoppable force! Great photo!
  17. Nope, the Batmobile was matte, that is correct. They're making this a special variant, for those who would've liked to have seen it gleam.
  18. She took a lot of heat from fans from what her character did on Walking Dead, which is just outrageously stupid. The actress is not the character! But hope people are past all that now and hope that the new gig works out for her.
  19. I always liked Laurie Holden. Hated her back in the X-Files 'cause I thought they were trying to use her to replace Scully....but later I realized I was being too harsh. Besides, she grew on me. Looks good in this outfit, looking forward to the show.
  20. I love the whole "pulp" era and golden age heroes. Big sucker for the likes of The Shadow, Zorro, Doc Savage, Miss Fury, etc. The first round of Neca's King Features were incredible; I got Ming but passed on the other two. Great figures but really just looked too "jacked" to me. Ming won me over with that glorious outfit. I almost got the Phantom, but he didn't have those striped briefs and he just isn't the Phantom to me without them. Now that King is re-doing them I just may get all. Definitely getting the Phantom.
  21. Some fool has this thing going up for $500.00 on eBay. The greed factor is just off the charts. Let's hope the stupidity factor isn't right up there and someone actually pays that.
  22. Thanks. Yeah it seems bizarre. I mean I've done my share of lurking in alleys (really, who amongst us hasn't) and I never recalled seeing lots of orange and blue on the walls. If they were gonna go "urban camo" seems grays/blacks/rust would be more fitting. But really, I'm just digging that flip visor and the shield!
