  1. TRU 25

    Huh. I didn't know that. I thought he was just deformed. That Voldemort nose I've seen in other pics totally threw me. But this Minimate doesn't reveal his own identity, unless he looks remarkably like Mary Jane Watson. The play pattern is literally the reverse of the character. And again, I'm not trying to tell folks what to like or dislike. Just trying to explain why people think the way they do because you asked: I'm glad you like it as is. For what it's worth I wish I could add it to my collection but my TRU apparently doesn't carry comic-based assortments anymore.

    "Classic" is subjective. Chameleon wears masks to disguise himself as other people. He doesn't wear a Chameleon mask the way Peter Parker wears the Spider-Man mask. You wouldn't put a Peter Parker mask over a Spider-Man head and claim that was correct. It's okay to prefer something that's wrong but that preference doesn't make it right.

    Those dreads would be hard to conceal under such a form-fitting mask.
  4. TRU 25

    Yes, some prefer it wrong. Some prefer it right.

    I guess it's about authenticity. As is, I can't pose my Chameleon with an MJ mask because he doesn't come with one. I can only pose MJ taking off a Chameleon mask, which is contrary to the villain's MO. I don't recall the specific gripes about masks in Walgreens assortments but none of them had anything to do with the specific character traits of Chameleon, right?

    I guess he really didn't need any extra heads if you don't go with a slip-on mask. So long as the noggin is swappable with other figures he could be anyone. I suppose this was just a way to get another MJ into the market and maybe encourage multiple purchases. For what it's worth I'm not big on that mask either.

    It would appear so.

    Well someone's in trouble with Disney. A Reddit user posted style guide art of the Hulkbuster 2.0 design: (It wasn't me!)
  10. The Mighty Thor: Informal Character Poll #10

    With the upcoming BAF series, isn't DST moving away from army builders? I'd be all over GIANT characters if DST would actually offer BAFs as GIANTS but since they're unwilling to rock that boat, my vote goes to more diminutive characters.

    Morph was such a generic, trendy word at the time. I recall it being used to describe the then-groundbreaking CGI used to render the shape-changing T-1000 in Terminator 2 a lot. Then the X-Men cartoon aired on Fox with a new character and I thought, Oh, of course he's named Morph. It'd have been like introducing a villain in 2017 named Complicit.
  13. Animated Marvel 'Mates

    We may see X-Men, the Fantastic Four, and the Avengers crossover in animation before live-action.
  14. TRU Series 26

    For what it's worth, I just checked the Marvel artwork style guide online and, of course, nothing comes up for "Morph." Then again, no X-Men characters appear either. (Side note: The only Fantastic Four incarnation that appears is the team made up of Hulk, Wolverine, Ghost Rider, and Spider-Man.) But I didn't stop there! I did some sleuthing and discovered that Toy Biz made Morph action figures. Doubting that the notoriously frugal Ike Perlmutter would pay for the rights to make a figure of such a relatively obscure character, I checked the packaging and, sure enough, Morph appears to be owned by Marvel. Check out that copyright line in the lower left corner.
  15. TRU Series 26

    I was just wondering if the Morph I found repulsive in the cartoon is the same as the AoA Morph Minimate I regretted passing on at TRU years ago. If they're the same guy I might just QC my own Morph from a Series 60 bod and grandpa's windbreaker. (Brilliant character design. Brown coat. So edgy.)
