  1. I've just watched it for the second time. I took my Grandson to see it. Seeing the excitement and hearing it as well from a kid makes it all the more a better movie for me. Like prob the majority of ppl here we know the history and backstory of the all the plots and comic series that the MCU an also the DCU are pulling from and that can at times make us overly nitpicky or critical of not being 100% true to the source material. So as I said I went with my 10 year old Grandson. He knew there was villains from the none MCU movies from the trailer and he seen the other Spidey movies on TV with me or his Mum and Dad but because we try an keep his online activitys balanced for his age he hasnt got in the habit of tracking down spoilers etc for stuff. That was all he knew, so his excitement when it all came together for the big sequences etc was just great. Is No Way Home the best Spidey movie? I Dunno but it sure is a blast going in with an open mind an just buzzing off the reaction of someone who is all in for the ride just makes it awhole lot of fun.
  2. I like the new big box design. As a collector I more often then not display my figures loose (a few exceptions like for promos etc.) For me the book cover design gives a more premium look to the figures so if that's the future for our favourite plastic crack it looks like staying in box going forward.
  3. Now I'm sure Marvel could do a storyline with that concept if they haven't already. If they do make sure you get royalties.
  4. I may need 1,2 or 3 guesses at this one. Who am I kidding I have no idea.
  5. I remember back when Minimates stopped being shipped to the UK that the Wave 16 minimates ended up at BM and Home & Bargain In the UK not sure if 17 did as well.
  6. Yay shots look great. The Designer sounds like a name for the next big bad in whatever marvel crossover comic is coming in the future.
  7. WoW I never expected to win, Lol. Cheers Sig Choice on the Avatar comment. I've thought about changing it over the years but it has history so I keep it. I remember being asked to make it more kid friendly back in the day as it originally had basicly the whole body shimmy dance bit and it was worded to me nicely that it could be I think distracting. its all fun in the end an that's the main thing.
  8. I'll Put my name in as well. not got one of those guys.
  9. I Just had to google who Goldbug was and came across this image of bumblebee toy from 1984 so it does look like the extra head is based on how bumblebee looked back then.
  10. I Do like them and I will be buying them. I just would have preferred Bumblebee in a basic yellow, just a little niggle but otherwise a great set of figures.
  11. I always took yay shot to mean one of two things. Yay as in yippee photos of the final figures or the one I mostly go for as its usually said when a picture of the figures are shown in the final clear tray. That it was actually a misspelling of tray shot that someone put in the excitement of seeing new figures and it stuck around. I'm sure alot of forums etc have their own little sayings or phrases that to anyone else may seem like make no sense.
  12. I would have been more for 616 versions of the characters the movie versions, but that just me. The majority of MCU figures don't grab my interest other then the original Iron Man ones. I am hoping Shang Chi does well as a movie release (The later trailers look good.)
  13. I'll put my name in the hat as well this time.
  14. Puns per nickel! I would be insulted we are British my dear chap. Pennies, pounds, feet and inches if you please, lol The Chef Duff Minimates where a surprise to me. Probably because I thought it was such a whisk of a set. Looking back in the database (Hail Ivan) Its a stonker (Good) of a minimate pack and the extras just make it.
  15. Seems I'm with a lot of folks here. MCU mates aren't my main interest as is, so a purchase would actually depend on how they are packaged instead of the figures themselves. Other MCU figures for me are better then these figures for iconic MCU looks. Nice figures in all but not a OMG WOW must buy to have or replace a figure that has come before it. As I've said I may buy a set just on the packaging concept if it looks good as I can imagine it on a small battery operated rotating stand in a display case etc.
