  1. That's a great looking Wasp! Makes me want to get one now. Also, great shots all together.
  2. Such a great looking wave. I can't wait for it to hit.
  3. YES! Deathbird. Here's hoping that last two pack is a Wolverine as Fang and a Deathbird. Please and thank you.
  4. Honestly, I think high numbers are scary for adult collectors who don't want to feel like they missed out. It's the same reason why comics feel like they need to restart at a new #1 all the time. Personally, I think it's character selection and proper fanbase management that attributes more to sales than a dumb wave number. If someone wants to buy a figure, the wave number probably won't stop them; they might say it does, but I don't believe it. High wave numbers (or issue numbers) is an easy excuse to not buy something, but if it wasn't there, I think they'd just find a different excuse.
  5. Your opinions appeal to me and would like to subscribe to your newsletter. Seriously though, yes to this entire wave. YES YES and MORE YES! So unbelievable stoked for Deathlok and that new Spider-Woman (Loved that Hopeless run)! Love to see DST taking a chance with some deeper dive characters like The Constrictor and Mockingbird. This is exactly the kind of wave I want to see more of from DST. Here's hoping it's a success!
  6. Man, good for dst straight knocking it out of late with these waves. Can't wait to see all of them. Who do we think are in that last two pack? Wolverine as Fang? Ch'od? Hepzibah? Smasher? Mad Emperor D'Ken? There are so many options!
  7. Marvel Legends is getting into the Maximum Venom game with a few new venomized figures. You think it's a hint to what we may see at Walgreens later this year? Like they'll do a series 2 (or 1b) with a Gwendom, Venomized Miles, Iron Man, and... um... Captain Marvel? Not that we'll see any of that at the show, but you know, for future thoughts.
  8. Not to shine any hope on everyone's doom and gloom, but are we sure it's cancelled forever? Like, that list, if I'm reading it right, seems to have a lot from dst on it. Maybe there was some weird other crisis that made them cancel all the existing preorders, or something. I don't know, it just seems weird that SO much DST product is getting cancelled. Unless the company is going under (which, in this economy is always a possibility), I wonder if there's something deeper going on. Regardless, fingers crossed that things work out and I can get that dang Darkhawk.
  9. Aw man, that's so kind of you to take the bullet for the rest of us. I've been wanting a modern Boomerang.
  10. I mean, given the reaction to the minimate boxsets, are you really that shocked? Seems to me that Alpha Flight is never a strong seller and those exclusive box sets always do poorly. That said, thanks for the heads up!
  11. I'm kinda surprised we didn't get an Iron Man/Gwendom set. That seems perfectly in the zeitgeist. Also, great job DST getting those figs out on time and looking great.
  12. Dear god, it's beautiful. This line could use more Genis.
  13. That motion effect on the axe is fantastic. Did you make it? Regardless, great stuff as always.
  14. You know, with DST doing a great job of knocking out the most demanded figures, it gets harder and harder to guess what the new waves could be. In times like these, we need BOLD GUESSES! Let's do it! How about a new USAgent (Long awaited hero redo AND starring in the upcoming D+ series) and a Batroc Ze Leaper (Villain they've only done as a movie version)? What about a Machine Man (never before made male hero AND starring in a new series next year) and Jocasta (never before made female hero AND a big player in Iron Man right now) And like a, I dunno, The Hood (never before made villain AND perennial fave) and a Kate Bishop Hawkeye (Never before made female hero AND just cool, okay?) That leaves one female hero in a new costume. Obviously it would be Black Widow in her 80s grey suit? That divisive Spider Woman costume with the jacket? OH! The Wasp in her black and yellows! There you go, a collection of bold, semi-plausible guesses that we can all laugh at when it finally gets announced.
  15. I could see this box set happening and it disappointing almost everyone. A Dark Phoenix, a Byrne Cyclops, A Lliandra, and probably a Wolverine (maybe as fang, but probably not). Hopes and dreams for the Starjammers, the Imperial Guard, and the rest would be dashed quickly and mercilessly. Personally, I can do without even if my Dark Phoenix is looking a little long in the tooth.
