Necessary Redos / Popular Redos
Posted 19 February 2012 - 10:37 PM
I may well have got it wrong, but I did think this thread was intended to be, which mates 'need' a straight re-do; same guy, same costume, just brought up to date with new details and tooling.
'if the first attempt at a character doesn't hold up now compared to current 'mates'... so the likes of Luke Cage as Power Man, Blonsky as Abomination (but not Rick Jones as A-Bomb, etc). I'd say an existing character is a slightly different costume shouldn't really count either, as it isn't really a re-do, but a character variant (as much as I'd love them, I wouldn't have thought a black and yellow Wasp, or Amazing Bag-Man would really belong in here).
I don't know, just saying... otherwise it all ends up being yet another wishlist thread.

In that case I'd say Luke Cage as Power Man holds up much better that New Avengers Cage, so if gven a choice between them, the modern look badly needs a redo.

And I'd definitely say Scarlet Spider is his own character, although I'd guess if we get one it will be the new one, not the original.

I generally agree with what the list so far. It would be awesome if someone compiled a list and dropped it on the first page for quick reference... Not me, but someone else :grin:

See the first one is a miss-match of costumes, the yellow with red gloves/boots first appearance costume had a flared mask similar to the one on the Star Sapphire minimate. The face mask like the Firestar minimate has belongs with her Avengers era costume. And she has the Dark Phoenix hair piece. That only should qualify her for a new mate as an apology for using it.

I do agree that she deserves better than the Farrah Fawcett-Dark Phoenix hair she got (even though she technically had it first). And as Miry said - her costume is a bit mis-matched.

And she and Vance broke up... but that was a while ago.

Oh, somebody else I'd add that I don't think's been mentioned yet: Black Panther. I just don't think they nailed him the first time around. Maybe it's because the slip-on mask looks too big if you display him as Panther Classic... like I do. But the ears on the mask just aren't right. I'd like to see a new T'Challa, with a midnight blue/black color scheme (like Wildcat) and maybe a mask kind of like the Destroyer: face is a tampo on a regular Minimate head, with the ears a sculpted piece fitting in the hair peg hole (if that makes any sense).
Great. there will be no living with him now.
I've said it before, and I'll say it again: HELLPOP GETS IT.

As an X-Men fan, the two which stick out like sore thumbs to me are Mystique and White Queen.
Mystique looks horribly dated... the movie one from last year isn't bad, but is by no means a definitive Mystique.
Original White Queen looks horribly dated... Astonishing is a little better, but suffers from being a parts re-use figure, and thus not as good as it could have been. Furthermore, my Astonishing's plastic started to yellow, and I bought a BRAND NEW still packaged replacement, and even the new one was slightly yellow (not as bad as my one that was opened for years, but slightly) ... So the Astonishing crop out there seem to be hitting an age threshold where their whiteness is fading... and the Movie from last year, again, is less than definitive. (Closer than Mystique, but still off).
Just throwing in 2 cents on the Luke Cage discussion, I'd prefer a new Power Man to a new Luke Cage. I've always gravitated more toward codenames and costumes than "Civilian" heroes. "Hero" personas, as it were. Notice who I didn't refer to as "Emma Frost" in my last paragraph... lol...

We already have Blackbolt and Lockjaw.
Finish it up by giving us Medusa, Crystal, Gorgon, and....um...that big-headed guy who does krate strikes.
