Title: AFB TALKBACK: Marvel Universe Sentinel
Post by: Scotty on November 06, 2011, 05:25:15 am
Those who freaked when I opened the SDCC exclusive card on last year's Galactus will be relieved to know that this Sentinel is the regular version:

Eternity or Living Monolith would be my top pics, or a big-ass Watcher.....

It is a great figure!

It was hinted at that the SDCC colored variant will likely be available at retail, just like Galactus had two colors available -- I sure hope so!

Next year's figure is Fin Fang Foom ... though he's red so he isn't really Fin Fang Foom but the Midgard Serpent in disguise. The green colored true Fin Fang Foom would likely be the retail version.

Put me down for Eternity and the Living Monolith as well!

It's great that Hasbro released another Sentinel and all, but for me, nothing beats that original Toy Biz BAF. Still hoping to get a few of those considering the price floats around the suggested retail price of this new one.

And @Andy, you opened the SDCC Galactus? O_O I open everything, but even I'd have thought twice about opening that gorgeous card. Kind of glad I waited for the retail version in retrospect.

They've been talking about Foom for a while now. There was much discussion as to whether he'd have the Kirby shorts or not (yes). Personally this is a waste of time for me as the Legends one is fine).

Top of my list would be Surtur.

I did consider doing a battle damaged one. Was also considering doing one with lights.
As for numbers I have way more than is healthy.  :-\

Well they do turn up in groups  ;D

All I really have is bookshelves, so my collection pics wouldn't be much more than shelves of figures standing around. I used to have grand ideas of themed displays but just don't have the space.

Sounds like most everybody's Collection Pics to me which is all good.I just love looking at those little differences in variety that everyone has in their displays.
