I love that this has nothing to do with being PC!!!  Looks totally enjoyable for no other reason than the outrageousness of it.

Lately....going by everything I see, I now imagine this being more about social issues ( specifically gay rights ) and political agendas and less about a highly trained vigilante wearing a Bat costume and fighting street crime.

BW, please start making a stop-motion animation movie with your toys.  I want the FANTASTIC FOUR, Ninja Turtles, and MOTU to come together!  The FF and the dimension hopping Turtles should have no problem getting to Eternia.

Interesting, BW....I can't even tell you the last female fig that I bought, so I had no idea Hasbro was knocking it out of the park.

Yeah....in the end, all those individualized sculpts just didn't pay off. 

There are definitely some great looking ML figures, but certainly not all of them.  Back in the day, I loved 500 POAs, but now?  No thank you.  12 to 16 is more than enough for me.

The thing that sucks is how much more expensive they are, now.  I've mentioned before that I often buy loose from eBay.

PTB, that same thing happened to me back in the 90s with an ICE MAN figure.  It was a young girl at a KB TOYS.  For some reason, he was a little hard to find at first.

Wow....I'm such a useless old dinosaur!

Yes, Ray Villafine did that perfect looking WARLORD.  I can only imagine how great of a job he would have done on a Mike Grell version.

Back on topic, Mrs. Magnet and I recently moved, and I've been going through all my plastic tubs of figures.  My point?  WOW!!  A lot of older LEGENDS figures are just FUGLY!!!  UGH!!!  Those terrible, oversized, ball jointed shoulders, ugly ball jointed hips, filthy dirty paint washes, individually articulated fingers that just look awkward, rough, pitted body parts....the list goes on.  Hasbro has done a much better job.  It made me realize how tight and uniform DCUC was.

I know we've said it before, but can you imagine a 4 Horsemen sculpted MARVEL line??

I agree KC....I'll eventually snag that BOOMERANG, but I wish it was the more toyetic, long lived Classic version.  However, we all know that this is the one and only Boomer we will ever see, so it's that or nothing.

It's the same reason I bought the DCD First Appearance WARLORD.

Definitely happy to see NIGHTHAWK, but I'll probably just settle for the cheaper, but still sharp looking Shrinky Dink.  Heck....the 6"er might end up being 25 bucks!

Still, it's nice to know that LEGENDS has plenty of surprises left. That's what keeps me interested.

11  The Collector's Life / The Pegs / Re: Four Horsemen Mythic Legions on: August 04, 2018, 02:54:03 pm
That horse is flipping amazing looking!!  If MARVEL LEGENDS had ever made a Cowboy Ghost Rider....

I still keep hoping that MYTHIC LEGIONS doesn't do any Ninjas, Pirates, or non-armored Robin Hood types cuz I'll definitely want them.  Granted, at this point...35 bucks for a 6"er is practically the norm.

Good point, FISH.  He's supposed to be the BEST fighter in a mystical city filled with highly trained martial artists.  Fist, Shang-Chi and Cap. America should be like....the 3 best empty handed fighters on the whole damned planet!!

I started to fill the survey out, but just gave up. I saw that it was all about packaging and art, with no questions about character selection.  That, plus the price increase just pushes me further away.

I don't mean to sound bitter....I'm just saying that I am officially no longer in most action figure demographics.  Either I'm too old, or I don't have that kind of disposable income.
14  The Collector's Life / The Pegs / Re: SDCC 2018: You know the drill. Predictions and wild @$$ speculations welcome! on: July 29, 2018, 04:22:23 pm
At this point, I am mostly about NBDs, ( Never Been Dones ) be they Marvel, DC, or just whatever.

Marvel Legends, DCC, and Mattel DC didn't show anything that knocked my socks off.  I only saw about 2 or 3 figures that I truly wanted, as opposed to years ago when I would see at least a dozen!

I don't have a lot of faith in Super 7's MOTU, plus they aren't really doing any characters that I want. 

I kind of liked the Diamond Star Trek Movie versions of Kirk and Spock.  Damn sharp looking!

All in all, I guess I've moved on to a new phase where there just isn't that much that I want.

Most people seem all hot and bothered about an Avengers / X-Men crossover, but that just seems too busy and too big for me.  I don't need a movie with 20 to 30 cool characters all running, jumping, punching, and flying around at once.

I do hope that the X-Men actually have cool, individualized costumes this time around.  Also, can they focus a little less on Wolverine this time around?
