  1. Like.... kind of not really. If they're a mutant,
  2. I would be all over this, but damn - what an odd choice it would be. And of that line-up.... to miss out on Nanny would be criminal. She's such a fun, ridiculous design. Think I'd ultimately break it up to put Wildchild w/ the AOA stuff, Greycrow w/ Marauders, etc....
  3. Can I ask for clarity: is the minor 7th member the second woman and also *not* included in the new set?
  4. https://getyarn.io/yarn-clip/3e87aedf-7461-401c-8599-44cfacea5118
  5. YAAAASSSS! I was JUST saying in a Marvel Legends thread how it was criminal that the cheapskates at Hasbro hadn't given us an Ogun on the Hand Ninja base yet! Please pre-emptively sign me up for one immediately!
  6. ooooh - just read his bio - that's a REALLY good guess.
  7. This one has me stumped. My first thought was Magus, but I'm not convinced that the clues line up for him. 🧐
  8. Love all these lists. Marrow is a great choice. Love seeing her on so many peoples lists. It's hard to draw the line for heroes/villains these days. Most people on my wants list have been both. If it's characters that have *never* had a minimate, I'd want: Random Exodus Penance/Hollow Marrow Deathbird (she's worked with the X-Men before. She counts!) but I'm totally up for costume variants of some of the non-Wolverine mutants like 90s X-Force Sunspot, 90s X-Force Warpath, All New X-23, or a real Hellfire Sebastian Shaw. I'd also eat up more AOA sets if we got Storm, Colossus, Abyss, Shadowcat, etc...
  9. I reckon he's going to look awesome backlit or lit with lasers. Can't wait to get him.
  10. This is *THE* costume I've been waiting on for Wasp. If it's the only other comic Wasp figure we ever got, I'd be content.
  11. Very cute to see the Mojo minimate (bottom left) used as a set piece for a Hasbro Livestream. This tracks with the rumour that a deluxe Mojo figure is coming, but I was mostly just tickled pink to see Minimates appear in the media. https://i.marvelousnews.com/g/generated/Finds/Monday-Live-Stream-Feb/Marvel-Monday-Live-Stream-Feb-Teases__scaled_600.jpg
  12. Price is always a concern, but it's why minimates were such an attractive offer in the first place. 2 figures with a bunch of accessories, surprisingly good articulation for the size, interchangeable parts and a huge capacity for team building was pretty amazing for the price. The issue here in Australia is the double handling of shipping. Items made by one of our nearest geographic trading partners are shipped to the US, and then back to Aus, meaning that whatever price hikes happen in the US are generally doubled here. For some context, Marvel Legends are currently $45 a piece here, and will soon be $50+ per figure. It's gotten to the point with all lines where I can't be a completionist anymore. I have neither the room, nor the budget. I'm curious to see what the 6 packs will mean for the line. I won't be able to just by the choice 2-pack I like out of a wave anymore. But most recent waves have had a fairly cohesive theme for the last few years. Minimates prices are on the rise, but so are the prices of every collectible. Minimates still seem like better value. And I can fit more of them in a display. Plus I like you folks better than the people on other toy forums.
  13. Young Avengers would be awesome. And it feels like a real possibility for an upcoming wave, given then number of characters we've seen popping up in the MCU. Unfortunately, I feel like the ABC series has absolutely buried any hope of the Inhumans merch until Marvey/Disney decides to have another go at them.
  14. From the colonies - Many, many, many, many, many happy returns good sir.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. That serrated shield is brilliant! They must take a bit of time to make.
  18. 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.
  19. 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!
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
  24. 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?
