  1. I have got to say, I felt like it was off to a very rushed and rocky start. But I suppose they needed a bit of rushing in order to establish the scenario and all the characters with enough time to let the actual movie unfold. Once it did kick in, I had a very good time. There were a few laughs, and I will fully admit to shedding a tear or two. I feel a bit badly for the Amazing Spider-Man villains. They just never had the gravitas or screen presence of the original trilogy's antagonists. There were a few too many 'in jokes' made You know, the sort of joke that borders on breaking the forth wall and giving the audience a knowing wink. I will, however, give the team absolute props for finding a way to let I'm currently watching my way through the series from the start with my partner (he's never seen any of the MCU films), so I'll be curious to see how I feel about it on second watch.
  2. The style of packaging is great. I love having a bright art piece cover for each set & it seems like a good opportunity for comic cover recreations, a la Giant Sized X-Men #1. I assume the offset in packaging balances out having cover art made for each new box. Can't wait to see what future sets look like. I'm letting myself hope for some cool VS style box sets based around major comic events like a Mutant Massacre set with X-Men vs Marauders, or similar.
  3. That serrated shield is brilliant! They must take a bit of time to make.
  4. Damn, @MisterMiracle... you are JACKED! That move with the twisting of the arm and then the sudden yank literally made me gasp in shock and cover my eyes! This is so freaking cool. What a fun world to be a part of. I am utterly in awe.
  5. This is actually a really good guess. Luke has a soft spot of the GOTG and has done some exceptional customs of them in the past!
  6. Despite the helmet not being quite long enough, I still adore the Silver Centurian from the exclusive 2-pack. That silver made the red stand out in a different way... it was cooler - almost a cherry red compared to the gold Iron Men. Hail Ivan! Despite the figure being a bit bulky, I also had a strange amount of love for the "movie" stealth suit (Spoiler: doesn't actually appear in movie). Something about the colours again - the deep metallic not-primary-blue with the red eyes just also looked great. Honorable mention to the comic Hulkbuster.
  7. I watched that series recently. They weren't given a chance to succeed. The MCU could pretend it never happened and launch them as a film franchise if they wanted to and no-one would bat an eyelid.
  8. I went all in and collected EVERYTHING Marvel for a while. I would decide on what you want to collect (MCU, Classic 616, 90's, etc...) and then check out the Flea Market section of the forums here. It's not as active as it once was, but if you post what you're looking for, people will no doubt help you out. Minimates aren't so easy to come by here in Australia, so I owe a large portion of my collection to the friends I've made on here.
  9. That whole boxset is a fave of mine. I don't collect non X-Men mates anymore, but I can't quite convince myself to let go of the Invaders set.
  10. Not super excited for this particular release as I'm not one for random mech suits on popular characters who don't actually use them... BUT - I am excited to see the X-Men get a look in for the first time in about... a decade?
  11. For a storyline themed grail... I'll take anything that gets the hole in my collection filled. Especially from the X corner of the universe. I'd take a Fatal Attractions wave if it got us Exodus, Random and some Acolytes. I'd love a Phalanx Covenant series if it resulted in Harvest, Douglock, and Gen X minimates It's lower on my list, but I'd eat up a zero Tolerance wave if we ended up with Reyes, Maggot, Marrow and some Prime Sentinels. I wouldn't say 'no' to a Runaways themed wave if they could figure out a way to make Old Lace (I suspect I'd have to sub in a lego raptor though).
  12. I got really excited for a moment and thought this said Comic Stryfe 😭
  13. I gotta say, I'm kind of a sucker for the older Thor minimates. The first 'Bearded Thor' we got (which might technically be Eric Masterson) has always looked the part to me. But I'm no Thorficionado.
  14. She might have…. There was a Hasbro Superhero Squad figure of her debuted at a Con, but I’m not sure if she ever got an official release? I ended up finding her loose on eBay. She’s also had a Heroclix…. But as far as articulated figures go, Minimates would be a first. And I would warmly welcome her (and the rest of the Starjammers) to the collection
