  1. Heh, yeah, the alcoholic Tony Stark drank at an early age and stunted his growth, hence the Modular IM. But really, the movie IM's are mostly 6.25 inches, so i guess the extra quarter of an inch would put him at six inches exactly. So much for people measuring them, wrong you are it appears Lemonhead. Better luck next time friend-o. Besides, if he was five inches, his limbs would be significantly shorter, hence he would have distorted anatomy, which apparently isn't the case in the movie IM's. Btw, you're kinda spammin Lemon... Just curious, but if you thought you were right in this situation and just now proved wrong, were you right exceptionally in the previous badgerings?
  2. Alvatron, no one is here to spite you. Let it go, you're whining quite too substantially. But... in spite of Shocker Toys' success, directly, I'd really enjoy seeing these figures in aisles, so let them sculpt in peace Alvy. O yeah, the shoulder, elbow, and knee joints are thin for maximum poseability, which I don't particularly mind, but stability and sturdiness are also factors.
  3. Found an Azrael at WM, and a Darkseid, and a Mongul at K-Mart in West Covina, California. It's slim pickings where I live.
  4. Agreed, at least with the Secret Wars Black Spidey. They've already made one in a recent Hasbro SMC line, which as far as I'm concerned I still need, because my old SMC one is all loose and unable to stand on its own.
  5. BAF Thanos with side-side ankle articulation, up-down wrist articulation, and DC Direct style ball-jointed head... (same as FF She-Hulk, or FO Leader) Which btw Toy Biz used to do, but stopped right around ML 4.
  6. Haha... yeah. The pegs tend to only attract common figures. I'd be pulling my hair out if I didn't get these online. That might be one of your options.
  7. I 2nd that. Despite the detail and posability of these 5 inchers, which often appeals to my interest, where are the six inch movie figures? Of course their are SM 3 6 inch movie figures, but they just don't suffice. I can't find a dang Venom anywhere.
  8. Absorbing Man and Kang captured my taste, despite their blatant rarity. They also fill the favorite list because of their characters portrayed in comics, relatively with their common attributes they share with the comics, in figure form. They both present perfect six inch scale, in accordance with most of my MLs. Despite what people may say, Iron-Spidey is also quite one of my favorites. He was actually a rare figure that I was lucky to have been granted, in my area. The paint-job is immaculate, with the chrome detail that no other figure has.
  9. If any1 has a Cyborg-Supes, Mongul or Steel, PM me.
  10. IMO, which would also consider the very bright future ahead, Hasbro would leave, and someone else would take over, able to suffice the fans' desires. IMO Hasbro hasn't been doing so well. Of course in a perfect reality, Toy Biz would continue the Marvel Legends line, but who are we to kid ourselves. Hasbro has taken the paint applications on their figures a step down, with the exception of the SMC Iron Spidey. On top of this, Hasbro has cut down costs on the ankles of the figures. Whereas in a situation, if Toy Biz was still producing Marvel Legends, the ankles of their figures would have side to side and front to back articulation. We view Hasbro's lack of movement range in the ankle of the Marvel Legends they produce as a cost effective product cut-back. Of course, this is only my opinion, and Toy Biz won't be taking back the Marvel license any time soon.
  11. HML 2 is shipping to some stores that get their shipments late. Hang in there buddy.
  12. The rarity of a figure directly clashes with its demand. Sometimes a figure can be completely common, for example, McFarlane Spidey, which was mass produced, like five of them on each peg. This figure sky-rocketed in value, I'm guessing because of the movie. Juggernaut also sky-rocketed, as well as Modern Iron Man. Juggernaut was difficult to find in stores, but M Iron Man was very common, amongst all of the Wal-Marts and TRU's I've shopped at, when he was out. They have now become rare. So the rarity of a figure could mean its price sky-rocketed, or it was just rare to begin with, pertaining to the few select figures that don't even make it to the pegs they're so highly-valued.
  13. Whenever BK makes figures from a movie, I.E. Small Soldiers, which were a total success. Personally I hate the rarity of these, I could never find some of the good ones from their Small Soldiers line up, but other than that they're a great for marketing.
  14. From what I can see she looks great. It'd be cool to see better lighting in these pics.
  15. The paint on your figures is uncanny to anyone elses'. That sentinel would look great with a modern set of x-men figures.
  16. Quite the artist you are. The paint apps are remarkable.
  17. That combination of the Gen body and the Xorn mask is neat.
  18. Reading Silver Samurai and white wash in the same sentence made me giggle. For those unfamilar, White wash is another slang for the term "Twinkie" when referring to asians. LOL I've never heard that before and honestly, I find that offensive being asian myself. But whatever, to each his own.
  19. I must say, and honestly, these figures would make so much money if only they were bumped up a scale into 6". Sadly, I wouldn't even have 2nd thoughts about purchasing these just because of the fact Hasblow is making money off of a new wave straying from, what their true sights are as far as cash crops go. If TB was still producing marvel figures as say ML's, or SMC's, fans would have something like the Green Goblin from the SM1 movie, with the removable helmet, and glider with clear stand. Now that is a true figure.
  20. I'd prefer they hadn't previously released the astonishing X-Men Wolverine, and instead put the brown costume Wolvy in his place. Either way they're all neat.

    VARIANTS!

    Good : Gold Iron Man S1, Dark Pheonix, Phasing Ghost Rider, Clear/Solid Invisible Woman, Solid Orange Super Skrull (W/ exception of its non-release), Baron Strucker Bad : black suit Kingpin, Crown of Lies Loki, Grinning Bullseye, Silver Moonknight, Black or Purple X-23, Mohawk Storm, White Sasquatch, Ionic Wonderman, Orange & Clear Super Skrull Wanted : Classic Black Panther, Green Trunks Namor, Classic Loki
  22. Yes, Kang and Dragon Man were released, and if you didn't find them, you didn't hunt for them. As for all of the other rare figures, some of which were much less rarer than Kang and DM, liek Destroyer, you have to hunt at all of your nearest toy stores to find them. If you don't make the effort, you'll never find them. The Annihilus and the Doombot were never really released in normal amounts, with the exception of the shipments arriving overseas. I found myself a Kang at a Rite-Aid, pretty banged up and in bad shape, but I did find one, so I'm not complaining. Annihilus & DB have totally different rarites then Kang and DM. Chances are you've seen a figure from their series, but never found the rare ones from that series, proving they were actually released.
  23. I never see any of that radical stuff here in California.
  24. Maybe the reason you didn't put Dr. Doom in the chair is because you had problems fitting him in their, concerning his cape? Or maybe you're just a smartass, putting Deadpool in there to get a laugh out of everyone, but in reality it really wasn't funny at all. Nice try though.
