Here's my question: Which DAREDEVIL?  We have a couple of Classic ones, a couple Yellow ones, and now a NETFLIX one.  Maybe the slightly armored 90s version?

That's bound to open up some discussion. think.gif

When I moved here, I put an ad on Craig's List for a guitarist to jam with, as I am a drummer.  I ended up becoming really good friends with this guy.  We both like a lot of the same music, and we play at about the same skill level.  He's a huge JACK WHITE fan, and has several WHITE STRIPES and JACK WHITE albums.

I'd also like to see a proper 70's style Werewolf by Night.  Just another character I've always liked.  Toy Biz did him years ago in a monster box set.  Love to see the Bro take a crack.

Yes, the MONSTERS boxed set.  That's the set that I never, in a jillion years would have thought would be made.  It's not perfect, but I still love it.

Several years ago, I started a thread over on the FWOOSH saying how much I would like a MARVEL SELECT FRANKENSTEIN.  I was saying that to make him look a little different, he could be a pale, sickly yellow, and that technically, the larger MS version would be more accurate in size than the ML version.  Also, he could be sculpted to have those weird, strap up boots.

The DRACULA was decent, but definitely could have been improved upon.  I'm still peeved that we got The ZOMBIE rather than The LIVING MUMMY, because I have always hated zombies.  I always thought WEREWOLF BY NIGHT was pretty cool, but yeah, I'd be totally down with a HASBRO version.

I live in Millersville, PA, which is about 10 minutes away from Lancaster.  This area ( central PA ) is famous for the Amish, and for it's outlet malls.

Truthfully, I haven't been in a Record/CD store in years.  Lately, I've bought all my CDs from Amazon.  Mostly used, and fairly cheap.

The really crazy thing is that there are 2 actual record stores in downtown Lancaster, plus a third one that deals almost exclusively in Punk, and yet I've never been to any of them.  For that, I completely suck.

But the internet makes it so damned easy to mail order.  Plus, I listen to shitloads of music on YouTube.  Even a lot of the obscure stuff I like is on there!  For example:

As long as they're doing remakes, I'd love some '86 X-FACTOR figs.  CYCLOPS, Human BEAST, ANGEL, and JEAN GRAY in that era's early costumes.

At the same time, can they please make PALADIN so that me, and the other guy that like him can finally have him?

God knows that I haven't read Modern MARVEL or DC in a while, but when did Richard Dragon become a Bad Guy??

Then again, TV ain't the Comics: MR. TERRIFIC isn't gay, we have no idea who VIGILANTE was, and Adrian Chase was PROMETHEUS, so....

I once considered an Alfred E. Nueman tattoo, but MRS. MAGNET shot that down quick!  I honestly think Alfred matches my personality, so to me, it seemed very fitting.

She also poo pooed my FRANKENSTEIN idea. 

Oh well....there's always t-shirts!

I really couldn't be arsed with this anymore. The current lists read like "I can't afford this previously released figure so make me a new one".

I totally get that, FISH.  Between Big Guns/movie figures, and the inevitable remakes of previously made characters, a lot of the 'surprise' factor is gone from LEGENDS.  I haven't lost hope, but it just doesn't seem quite as fun as it used to be.  And I know you guys get sick of hearing it, but figures costing 20+ bucks doesn't help matters.

Cool idea, GARD!  Back in the day, I remember a few folks mentioning GI ROBOT in Wish Lists.  Good memories!

Also, it's great to see that WONDER GIRL.  Keep 'em coming MATTEL.

Ya know what I think would be a great movie?  GRAVEDIGGER.  Sure, it would be a war movie, and they aren't really 'in style' now.  Plus, it would touch heavily on racism and segregation, and those aren't exactly uplifting.  But, it would be more of an action movie than a realistic take on history.  Ulysses Hazzard would be sort of like a combination of James Bond and a One Man Army. 

But I'd probably be the only person who'd want to see it.

It's just incredible looking.  He'd fit in perfectly with HE-MAN, and to a slightly lesser degree, MYTHIC LEGIONS.  The details....the throne....it's just mind blowing.
