  1. Yep. These box sets still ain't it personally. This is a hard no from me at this price point.
  2. Zach can correct me if I'm wrong, but he seemed to implie that Echo was pulled from this set but was moved to a different set. So we are still getting her, just not in this box.
  3. Lol. If the rumors of this set are true, I may buy two just to have the extra blocks... Wanted this set for a very long time!
  4. That's kind of what I figured. I just threw a couple Marvel mates in the Rivendell set and they didn't look off. Never seen the Avengers tower or Dr Strange sets out of the box and built though.
  5. How do larger Lego sets scale with mates? My father (a huge Lego Stars Wars collector) showed me a leaked picture that Lego may finally be putting out a Lego X-Mansion in 2024... It looked a little small and i know sets can vary. The Lego Rivendell set actually scales really well with Minimates, but the Blackbird and Milano are too small. Is it usually a case of vehicles being too small but sets scaling decent enough?
  6. Was there a 2010s Miles centric story? We just got a great Peter Spidey in Wave 76, and a great Vulture and Kraven in Wave 77. Thinking this could be: Miles current costume, Lizard, Morlun and maybe a couple new alt universe like Spider-Punk, and 2099? Spider Ham as a smaller figure like Lucky and HERBIE?
  7. Spider-Verse, Spider-gedden are probably the big ones. Outside chance of Spider-Island or the Gauntlet? Spider-Island would give us a chance at Shang-Chi and Hercules.
  8. Purely speculating that she would have. We never got confirmation who came with what spare parts but the initial pic showed her with the fire fist parts so a Phoenix stand isn't too far of a reach I'd think.
  9. Speculating here, but she was probably cut because the Phoenix parts she came with made her easiest to cut to meet the new budget. Because most of us buying mates don't have like 40 spare Phoenix parts from the 10 different Jean's we've bought? 😮‍💨
  10. Some of it sure, but how long had people been clamoring for Young Avengers and then we get that recent boxset with a 2nd Marvel Boy mate rather than Stature or Speed? Who in DST/Marvel wanted or demanded the 2013 team rather than a boxset of the classic lineup, when both Stature and Speed had been in recent or upcoming MCU projects? Who thought up Gamerverse mates and then went "let's just throw out another slightly different version of Hulk, Cap, Iron Man and Widow. No one wants Spider-Man video game mates or even a Ms Marvel based on the Avengers game design!" Yes, we are a vocal minority here and Zach is stuck doing what DST thinks will sell and will appeal to consumers. But it's difficult to not look at say Marvel Legends figures and go "they recently made Pretty Boy, Random, Cho'd, Skullbuster, Rose, Orb, Zero, Crossfire and other D, E list characters... What gives?" Who is the person going "the people really want a 84th Iron Man variant or a 21st Cyclops figure"?
  11. Just a baffling, baffling decision. DST just can't get out of their own way lately... Can we get build a figures and two packs back? Cause these monkey's paw boxsets ain't it.
  12. Any chance i could be thrown in this mix for the Marvel United deck as well? Never even occurred to me to ask here after I saw it announced.
  13. So... What are people doing for Patriot, Speed, Stature and Iron Lad? Recipes for QCs or full customs? Let's see what you've got.
  14. Nice! I also have the same hair picked out for Elixir (WW2 Cap/First Class Angel?) but had been missing a good face. Two customs for the price of one!
  15. Well we did just get Lilandra and Corsair, so likely: Cho'd w Cr'eeee Hepzibah Raza Longknife Binary Korvus Marvel Girl/Rachel Summers? (needs an updated figure) Another suggestion entirely: If we can't get the original Hellions... could we get the New Mutants in their Hellion outfits? Maybe just include some alternate heads and parts for the Hellions? Rahne - head and tail for Catseye Karma - head for Tarot Magma/Magik - head for Roulette Thunderbird - head and jetpack for Jetstream Cypher - head for Empath Cannonball - head for Empath throw in an alternate head Bevatron, and a head and buffed up chestpiece for Beef. and you've got 14 characters in one box set and I'm buying two sets at minumum.
  16. Ummm Did Zach just spill the beans on Wave 85??? We are due for another Spider-Man set since the last one was Wave 77.
  17. Quote from Zach over in the 83 thread: "But 84's theme doesn't have an appropriate small character, so right now the set includes extra parts to transform two characters, one into a different character, one into a different costume, and an extra unmasked hair piece." Re-reading that I guess I'd say an alternate head to make D-Man and parts for Elektra or Echo to make a Ninja Elektra or Ronin Echo. But the alternate character is a new one so that would eliminate Ninja Elektra right? Sounds like it's a good number of extra parts in this wave once you add accessories in.
  18. I asked in the NYCC thread, but it's more relevant here. There was supposed to be a 4th new character in this wave if you counted an alternate attire a new character. It's got to be Ronin parts for Echo right?
  19. Ok 84 is pretty sweet! Lots of characters I didn't think we'd be getting but glad we are. A question though, wasn't there supposed to be an additional character that could be made with an alternate attire? Yeah read Zach's comment in the 83 thread, "three new characters four if you count an alternate look for one of the heroes." So... Parts for Echo to make her Ronin attire?
  20. Street level makes think modern Shang Chi and suit and tie Mandarin due to recency bias with the movie? How diffucult would Khonshu be to make as an alternate attire to a modern Moon Knight? Am I recalling wrong that Zach mentioned a Grey Gargoyle mate at some point recently? And because I've always wanted him... Whirlwind. Throw modern Elektra and a Spidey variation in there and call it a day?
  21. Missed out on Ka-Zar but still able to get Zabu! Which is fine as I have a custom I'm happy enough with. Luke, are those the Valeros, Human Fighter hands and boots? Pretty sure I have those sitting in my parts bin currently.
  22. -mix of old and new designs -mix of new character designs and new characters -3 villains, 3 heroes (1 alternate costume, 1 alternate hero) -three new characters, 3 old characters Makes me think House of X with the new characters being: Synch, Scalphunter/Greycrow? Magneto Old characters being Professor X, Kate Pryde (Marauders/ alternate classic outfit), Sinister?
  23. Speed wears a green suit with white on the sides. Marvel Boy wears a white suit with green sides. /rechecks picture up thread to make 100% sure. Marvel Boy. Ok... So what are the odds you could use say a TMNT space helmet on Lucky and make Cosmo?!?!?!
