  1. Impressive! But I thought the Ultimates was over priced so dont know about this one. We'll see.
  2. Beautiful tribute to Mythic Legions!!
  3. How I hated these uniforms. The Wrath Of Khan were the best, followed by Next Generation. They just went downhill from there.
  4. Oh man this is a sweet set up! He's got all that 1930s pulp flavor going on....figure's a bit on the small side though. Still, its a beautiful piece of work!!
  5. The whole "amnesiac protagonist who has off-the-charts martial arts skills that snap into effect because of muscle memory" has been done to death....come on.... Are we going to find out that they were part of an elite super deadly league or organization...got into some situation and was left for dead....ends up finding a friendly ally along the way while they struggle to find out why someone's after them, why can't they remember, blah blah....
  6. That Grant looks like Dr. McCoy from Star Trek....first glance, I thought it was DeForrest Kelly!
  7. Here, theyre either sold out or listing as "can't ship to your location". So result is same- nada. Well if a line is working this hard not to take my money.....I'll spend it elsewhere.
  8. One other thing to add to @nieman257's great nswer: the lead character is voiced by Keith David (actor from THEY LIVE, THE THING), Xanatos & Demonia are voiced by Star Trek Next Gen actors Jonathan Frakes and Marina Sirtis. Pretty good series; I'm sure a lot of fans saw hints of Tony Stark in Xanatos. I loved that black and red 'copter!
  9. One thing about Captain Marvel was that he had a shorter cape that draped over his shoulder. I sure miss that. Just seemed to be a distinguishing thing for him.
  10. Unless they're announcing that the exclusives will be 1.) easier to acquire and 2.) they're re-issuing the ones they've messed up, then frankly Hasbro can go you-know-what itself. They have crapped all over this line and frankly, who needs the hassle. I'm not even a die-hard Joe collector, so I can only imagine how betrayed the more devoted fans feel.
  11. They make such a big deal of Cavanagh leaving the show (usually "death") but he comes back and comes back so quickly, it makes this kind of announcement just blah. I dont think the show ever explained how that huge particle accelerator facility operates with merely 2-4 scientists/technicians. They re-purposed it at some point as a meta-human prison, but we never see any staff tend to any of the inmates, we never see how the place runs, etc. Now frankly at this point I'm not even sure I care.
  12. Never seen anyone work this hard to not take customer money. Hasbro's GI Joe line is hated for a reason. The sabotage is incredible.
  13. I can't see the point of this. Flash just got his speed back, and now they want to add another speedster to the revolving roster of speedsters that have debuted and then left the series? Jay Garrick, Jesse Quick, Kid Flash, XS....whatever was the big deal about Impulse anyway? And during the whole time of the Nora arc, did they ever once mention that Barry and Iris have a son in the future as well as a daughter? Regardless, the writers seem to clearly be stuck in a rut and at the same time, see that the curtain is closing on the CW for these DC heroes...Green Arrow, Black Lightning, Supergirl and Flash have, no pun intended, run their course (Arrow's already gone and frankly I think they cheaped out on BL, which was a shame). Why Legends hasn't already been cancelled yet is baffling to me. Instead of yet another speedster, itd be nice to the Flash final season guest starring Black Lightning, Star Girl, even Superman (which I'm finding to be amazingly good so far).
  14. I've said it before and I'll say it again. Putting so much emphasis and screentime on Black Lightning's daughters instead of the man himself so early in the series, diluted and basically killed it. At least the first two seasons should have been all BL. Now in the final season the actress playing Lightning is quitting the show and recast, which makes no sense. To make way for her exit, Lightning absorbs too much energy in the ionosphere and explodes. But her particles are somehow collected and re-constituted via a Hadron collider type piece of equipment courtesy of the Flash. Sadly, there's no Black Lightning/Flash team up for the fans...not even a cameo. CW feels its better to drone on about soap opera romances and the like. Far more sensible to just kill her off, but no, they bring in another actress who bears zero resemblance to China McClain...they explain this away by "DNA re-sequencing" or some such nonsense, that makes her much taller, and styles her hair into dreadlocks to boot. Because of course when your body is disassembled and brought back together again, your hair gets a perm, or frosting tips, or a bob, or dreadlocks. Dont get me wrong, I've enjoyed the Pierce girls but just prefer if they had their arc in later seasons. Sorry we really didnt get to see more of the series' star.
  15. It SAYS that, but some people's ideas of "full articulation" differs from others. It looks like they may swing upwards, but do they fold/hinge behind him, or fold in front? That's why a rear view shot should have been included.
  16. If I can't get Simon Baker for Aquaman, then casting him in the role of Kent Nelson/Dr. Fate would be a great alternative.
  17. Again with this. No rear view shot of the figure. 18 photos and most of them front views. What do the wings look like from behind? Are they articulated? Are they removable? What about the tail? Why continually show us pictures of these figures, without a 360 view??
  18. These are nice pictures, but why dont they show the figure from different angles?? I see this constantly on these sites. There's 12 shots here, you'd think they could use at least one to show the backpack from the rear. Great looking figure, and that construct is very cool!!
  19. I've never cared for the notion of Godzilla as "protector" of man, so with the exception of his very first movie, I've just been disappointed with the films. I did catch the ridiculous 1962 face-off; the 2021 trailer seems to give the battle to Kong which frankly I cannot abide. I can see the outcome in a draw, maybe, but I'd always give the decisive victory to Godzilla.
  20. These are great looking. But so jacked!! Wow, steroids much? Seriously though that's how they looked in the cartoon so can't really complain. I do miss the Phantom's striped briefs, which to me always looked silly, yet its his iconic look. However he didn't have them on the show so again, they're being faithful to the series look. Not a walmut fan so I can wait till they hit other outlets; Ming looks like a must get. I'm definitely looking for these!
  21. That doesn't make any sense, unless they're going to have a present-day Flash involved somehow with the original Flash from WWII.
  22. Only 6 figures to a store, and you had to drive half and hour to get to that one store because your closest didn't have them....this is unacceptable. Its unacceptable that this line is advertised to drop on Target's website at x date and within minutes, they're totally sold out. I would love it if reviewers and most of all, collectors, would just turn their backs totally on this line, and let Hasbro & Target know all they're doing is feeding the scalpers. I know that months ago I contacted Hasbro and their representative seemed upset and apologized, and more or less said these would be re-released for the holidays. Clearly that wasn't true. Well, I cant bother buying a product that the manufacturer doesn't want to sell to me. @22:34 Jc, I would get some more verification on this person who told you his store got 18 figures. How does he know that, did he see them, count them, buy em all up to scalp on ebay? Curious.
  23. Nice figures, but these guys should think about hitting the gym more.
