Yeah, I just read the second (and last) volume of the series the other day.  It's really, really great.  I don't always like modern storytelling techniques used for classic comics characters (usually the character ends up unrecognizable), but in this case they really nailed it.  Tom King wrote a modern gothic suburban horror comic that just happened to star the Vision, and it's probably the best comic Marvel has published in years and years and years.  Anyway, highest recommendation. And I bet, after you are done, you'll want a Minimate box set of the Vision and his family just as badly as I do.:lol:

The Vision has been one of my favorite characters since I was a kid.  I have never felt like any of his solo stuff has done him anywhere near justice.  The recent series by Tom King was perfect.  I agree with hellpop that it is the best comic Marvel has done in years, and that was after feeling like the recent Secret Wars series was excellent.  I can't recommend it enough.

Every time I read this thread I feel compelled to ask a question, so...

What's your breakfast of choice?

Not sure if that's an old joke or a slam on my penny-pinching, BHM, but:

French toast with bacon OR eggs benedict if I'm out. Bran flakes OR a fried-egg sandwich if I'm home.

I feel obligated to answer all questions posed here, but I'm starting to feel a little silly with some of these.

That's the whole point, Zach.  Like how weird/silly Media Day is with the NFL. :)

Gamora. Lots of accessories, nice ROM. I remember when female figures were the least articulated figures in the line.

The others are fun, too, but I didn't have Star-Lord's flight stand, and my Drax was a little loose. Hopefully just an issue with the early sample.

I don't collect Diamond Select figures but if I was to start, this would be my jumping on point. Then again, I'm a sucker for a complete team/main cast being released all at once.

Zach, has the idea of pre posed arms every been run by you or Chuck? Luke made a post about implementing bicep swivels but this seems like a better idea for characters that carry a bow or large guns

I gotta question... Can we get more control art, please sir? For current waves... upcoming waves... relatively recent waves... used to love to see that.

I hadn't seen it suggested before that thread. But Chuck doesn't even like sculpted HANDS.

Oh, yes please! 
I used to love seeing the control art, with the little section of sculpted extras, and the colour samples with the names of the colours.
