    That is disappointing for me. I saw the cross-sell for the new Punisher TF on the X-force Wolverine package and I got all excited!

    But now I'm sad...

    ToyBiz had a Marvel toyline which predates the Transformer Crossovers. Basically, the character transforms into something which a child can play around with, like Spidey turning into a webshooter, or Apocalypse turning into a mini gatling gun.

    The Punisher turned into a pistol.

    Argh, beaten to it :D

    The ONLY excuse I will accept for canning Punisher is that they're going to put more villians in this line *cough*Dr.Doom*cough*.

    I mean, outside of the more crazy Marvel heroes (Wolverine, Hulk) who can be considered "lawfully" evil at times, we've only got ONE full-time baddie with Venom (and maybe that repaint of him into Carnage, if that ever got released). I know heroes sell better than villians, but I can't imagine Dr. Doom just building one transforming suit of armor for Venom while Reed Richards and Tony Stark build a whole friggin ARMY of them for their superfriends (with Spiderman having gotten at least three different toys in this line alone).

    Now that Punisher, who could pass as being evil, is gone, the only figure I still want it Bulldozer Hulk so I can create my Animated Bonecrusher.

    The Marvel Crossover line seems to be suffering the same character-ruts as the movie lines. The more popular characters (for the movie, Prime and Bee, for Marvel, Iron Man, Spiderman, etc.) sell the best so they get the most toys. I don't blame them though, it only makes sense financial wise.

    I don't know that there is any proof of that with this line, although I understand the logic of it. Spiderman is easily the most popular of any of those characters, and he's shelfwarming harder than any of them. I think if you made a good enough toy, you could throw a Brother Voodoo deco on it and it'd sell. Hasbro doesn't seem interested in finding out yet, as there have only been what, maybe 10 different molds in the whole line?

    Since's a remold of the Captain America figure, would you not be able to use a standard Cap to make into a Roadbuster?

    I was looking forward to both. i would have bought Punisher cause he is awesome and Blue Human Torch to go with the regular Human Torch to be like a different version of animated Jetfire and Jetstorm.
