    TRU 25

    But he does wear a Chameleon mask over his face. That's kind of his gimmick. You never see his actual face. Even after he gets his powers upgraded, you still see what's left of his face underneath the tech version of the mask. You see it in the pic YOU posted. Don't accuse others of right and wrong unless you know what you're talking about. If I'm happy with what I got, I'm not going to actively look for reasons to make myself unhappy. That's crazy. The same people bitching about a slip over mask would be bitching if it was done the other way. Like it's some geek-culture "right of passage" to be a negative tool about every piece of minutia. Anything remotely resembling positive thought and you're not a "real fan" or don't know what you're talking about regardless of evidence. It's beyond tiresome and it's in every single thread on this board now. This place used to be fun. Nobody posts reviews anymore, nobody posts pics. It's just non-stop bitching. Whatever, I'm done with this place.

    Then I guess it's a matter of preference. Chameleon with a slip-over MJ mask. I don't see how that would work without looking clumsy. You can't get away with a plain MJ using that method; it's always going to look like someone wearing an MJ mask. OR Chameleon with parts to make MJ. Giving us two modern versions of characters that haven't been made in a decade. Essentially brand new characters considering how much the aesthetics have changed since then. EDIT: Hellpop posted as I was typing. He gets it.

    If the mask is supposed to be tight, then I would rather have it printed on a plain head. If it's a helmet or mask with raised, 3D elements, I want a slip over mask piece. Different artists, different interpretations and what not, but if I'm looking for "iconic" Chameleon, I want something along the lines of Ditko or Our Pal Sal. And they drew the head like the above pic. I want accuracy and that's what I got. No complaints here. People complain when slip over mask aren't used in the Walgreens waves, what's the argument here? Honest question.

    Chameleon came out perfect. The slip-over helps the look in this case.

    I'd be all over a Lawler custom! And that Bret look great!

    Conan returns to Marvel in 2019!

    If they add Conan to the Epic line, I'm all in! There isn't A TON of stuff out there that depends on Conan licensing and continuity, but it would still be cool to get that stuff back in circulation. The Conan Essential volume from way back in the day was one of the first volumes to get crazy high on the aftermarket. Red Sonja isn't part of the deal.

    Package Format

    I like the current model but wouldn't mind seeing experimentation every now and then. Packaging that could double as an accessory/backdrop could be a neat way of doing it, make it a once a year convention exclusive. The Vault immediately springs to mind.

    They're not out yet. They hit overseas first then take a couple months to show up here.

    Picked up the whole wave when they were buy one/get one 40% off. Reminds me of the Best Of Minimates series. Excellent stuff all around.

    TRU Series 26

    When I'm doing my super-nerd statistics, I go by the packaging text if the identity is ambiguous. Which reminds me, a Harry custom would be ridiculously easy to make with the bucketloads of Norman Osborn hair pieces I have lying around. That hair...

    Surtur is an absolute must-have. Perfection!
  13. Gladiator is easily one of my favorite Marvel characters so he gets my vote.
