  1. Would anyone have a spare Parker/Chameleon set? My local store never got these in despite having the BP wave.
  2. Heya! I got my tax return today and decided to finally start picking up various storylines/origin stories in the classic Marvel Universe that either I've read before (but never owned) or never read. What I'm looking for are the best storylines collected into volumes/collections. I usually lean towards older stuff (pre-90s comic book crash to be more precise) but I'm open to new stuff as well... I'm also really looking into getting some Hulk stuff that isn't Planet Hulk. I have the following: Marvel Masterworks The Amazing Spider-Man Vol. 1 - 2 Fantastic Four Vol. 1 - 2 The Avengers Vol. 1 - 3 Silver Age Captain America Vol. 1 The Invincible Iron Man Vol. 1 The Mighty Thor Vol. 1 The X-Men Vol. 1 The Uncanny X-Men (Aka Giant Size X-Men) Vol. 1 Collected Storylines Spider-Man: Kraven's Last Hunt Spider-Man: Birth of Venom Spider-Man: Death of the Staceys The Amazing Spider-Man Omnibus Vol. 1 Avengers: The Origin Captain America: Winter Soldier Ultimate Collection Now, this is my current to-buy list: Thor Visionaries: Walter Simonson Vol. 1 - 2 Iron Man: Extremis Iron Man: Demon in a Bottle Iron Man Epic Collection: Stark Wars (Armor Wars Prologue and Armor Wars) Spider-Man: Origin of the Hobgoblin The Avengers: Kree/Skrull War Daredevil: The Man Without Fear - Frank Miller Daredevil: Born Again Wolverine - Claremont/Miller Captain America: Man Out of Time Silver Sufer Epic Collection: When Calls Galactus (The Coming of Galactus and various Silver Surfer stories) X-Men: Days of Future Past X-Men: God Loves, Man Kills Infinity Gauntlet The Death of Captain Marvel There are some books I would like to get but seem to be out-of-print and go for a pretty penny so, for now at least, these are out of my list until they either go back into print or are published into new, affordable collections: The Avengers: Under Siege Marvel Masterworks Daredevil Vol. 1 Marvel Masterworks The Incredible Hulk Vol. 1 Marvel Masterworks Dr. Strange Vol. 1 The Avengers: Ultron Unlimited So yeah, definitely looking for some good Hulk books (Perhaps Hulk Visionaries Peter David/John Byrne?) and others that aren't Spidey-related!
  3. http://marvel.com/news/movies/24062/sony_pictures_entertainment_brings_marvel_studios_into_the_amazing_world_of_spider-man Welp, dreams do come true! EDIT: Sources are saying he'll make his big debut in Captain America: Civil War and that Andrew Garfield is out. Standalone film hits July 28th, 2017, pushing back the rest of the phase 3 films except for Avengers: Infinity War Parts 1 & 2 and Guardians of the Galaxy 2.
  4. Y'know, I find it odd that Sony is going with an all-female cast for this. Aren't most corporations against this sort of thing since it supposedly 'limits' the merchandising potential especially concerning toylines and video games? We already have a hard enough time getting female characters in other toylines as it is-- I mean, how long did it take for Hasbro to make a six inch-scale MCU Black Widow to be made after The Avengers came out? Personally, I don't see this reboot doing too well and it will most likey go right into the 'oh yeah, that existed' bin with recent flunked reboots/remakes like Robocop. I had not heard that spoiler, and that sounds amazing. There is a school of thought that women are more than 50% of the movie-going public, and girls are 50% of the toy-buying market, and if a girl wants to buy an action figure, they should be allowed to. The reality is not always that simple, but I applaud any studio willing to attempt to translate the success of a 100% female-driven comedy like Bridesmaids into an otherwise inactive franchise. I think Sony has seen the sales potential for women's GB merchandise over the years (apparel, costumes), and has the right idea. I think a kid-targeted movie could have led to more merchandise, but it's a fine tightrope making a kid movie appeal to adults, and I'm personally glad they went this route. Yeah, don't get me wrong, I'm fine with a all-female cast (though I'm not a fan of some of the actresses they've chosen) and the fact they're taking a risk with it! I just found it odd Sony of all people are the ones taking said risk. A new cartoon would be fantastic and would be a good way to feature the original four characters without having to get any of the actors involved. I'm surprised Sony hasn't tried to make a CG GB series after Nick's TMNT became a major success, honestly. Imagine if Nickelodeon had a 'power-hour' with a new Ghostbusters cartoon followed by TMNT! IMO, I didn't care too much for the new movie myself (never cared for the sequels to the original, either) but it came and went out of theaters barely making $60 million on a $120 million-ish budget. (Though the worldwide gross was $240 million.) So it didn't make much of splash, at least here in the US.

  6. OHMIGOODNESS. I am so on board for super-articulated BTAS figures. Though it is odd that Batman, Two-Face and Mr. Freeze are from TNBA while Catwoman is from BTAS.
  7. Just got back. I personally thought it was okay. I do think the film has some problems, however: - Superman didn't seem too concerned with collateral damage during the climatic battle with Zod... which seems out of character. - A lot of the CGI sequences were much too cluttered and made it hard to focus on the action. Not as bad as Michael Bay's stuff but man... - Camera work was too erratic at times. How many times did Snyder need to do that zoom in-out of focus-zoom out-in focus thing? - Some of the dialogue... was not so great, especially that of the military characters. - Pacing seemed awkward, like on Krypton at the start. - I think they should've cut one of the early fight scenes. As cool as it was, I think they could've left it out and the movie wouldn't have suffered. I did like the film, though, and it makes a solid foundation for a new series. I just hope Snyder calms down at bit for the sequel. And while I did complain about it, the final fight between Supes and Zod was worth the ticket price. HOLY CRAP.
  8. LOVE LOVE LOVE this Hulk. The main reason I originally wanted this 2-pack was to get Loki (who is also great.) but Hulk ended up being amazing. Kinda sucks he didn't come with a raiser piece but I used the one from my previous Hulk so it's all good. He goes great with the other 'classic' style guys I have on display. Oh and...
  9. Its the 90s Cyclops. I just took off all the extra parts and added the mask, belt, gloves and boots.
  10. "X-Men, X-Men! Savin' the Day, Savin' the Day! X-Men, X-Men! Comin' your way!" The Pryde of the X-Men pilot cartoon was my first exposure to the X-Men so it's nice to finally have this team complete in toy form twenty-some-odd years later. Except for Wolverine's off center eyes, I love this wave.
  11. The TRU Storm looks exactly like the Power Glow Storm figure from that line. EDIT: Whoa, that tampo is pretty bad on Colossus there.
  12. My set (minus variant) is on its way from Luke's. I can't wait to get 'em.
  13. Man, all the Marvel stuff looks great! - Loki looks great despite the reuse of movie Loki's helmet. - Looking forward to getting Hulk that has the newer hands. (...Why does he have a second pair of hands?) ...I find it hilarious that Hulk and Loki are in a pack together. "Puny god." - Definitely want the Deadpool/Punisher set. I don't have Deadpool and love the classic Punisher look. - ZEMO!! - Will be getting all of the FF stuff. I prefer the white gloves/boots to the original black and all of the accessories and villains are simply wonderful.
  14. I'm not sure if its accurate or not. I based this more off my custom Marvel Universe Red Skull, which used a movie Comic Variant Hydra soldier body and a movie Red Skull head. I just think the colors and pieces make him a perfect counterpart to Cap and now he stand out much more in my display. And I'll keep you in mind about the Red Skull head piece.
