They aren't sidekicks.

As for the Monsters set. Meh. I saw them, I had no use for them. Dunno why Toybiz even wasted the money making them. There's a shelf full of them at Walmart (the only remnants of the "walmart wave". Doubt they'll be selling anytime soon.

The YA set on the other hand, I'm glad I got mine. Haven't seen a set since.

Creature from Black Lagoon
Mummy
Invisible Man
and one other classic monster
Read the comics, they're worth it, especially since the 'They're more then you think!' tagline has never been so true.

Could'nt get into the Monster set either.
Don't even know why there's a Marvel 4pack of them in the 1st place. That what I get for not reading up on them I guess. Or just sick of Dracula and werewolfs.

I did buy a Morbeus, Howling Wolf, Grey HULK and Deadpool though hehe

Those Wave3 Deadpools have preorders saying they're shipping in October. Damn that seems too long.

Don't look at my stuff!! Which is

The Monsters do have a rich history but I rather TB put up an Inhumans boxset! At least with the Inhumans, we will be having most of the Marvel Universe "big guns"!

I love how ToyBiz is capitalizing on "now" trends. Instead of doing figures everyone would want, they keep putting out "so so" figures. I mean, how many people would ove an Inhumans set or some T-Botls figures. No. Instead we get the House of M, the Sinister 6 (whom have all been released under classics except Black Cat), another FF set... I do like the YA set so I will let that slide. The monsters hve their place I guess but it still has me scratching my head.

Yeah, I know what you mean and so far Toy Biz is doing a great job in terms of the amount of toys we are getting!

But I believe many of us want to see some of our faves who have not been made in plastic yet is because of the fear that Hasbro may discontinue the ML line or change it to be more kiddish - know what I mean?

Let's not forget, Hasbro has not announced its plans or intentions with the ML line. I believe ML sales for this year will be one of the key yardsticks.

For the life of me, I don't understand why we didn't get an Emma Frost.

CM, more than half those guys will never be made. Hell, I barely know who some are, kids definately won't.

But they need to make characters like Kang, Darkhawk, and Doc Samson. They have a Loki and Mandarin coming out. And Savage Dragon isn't a Marvel character.

I want to se Medusa, Black Bolt, Crystal, and Gorgon from the inhumans. Also the entire t-bolts lineup, or at least a Mach 1 because he does look like a robot so the Iron Man idea applies here. It just boggles my mind that we get Mojo but no Atlas, 2 Thors before we get a Beta Ray Bill, 2 Caps before a Baron Zemo, and 3 Things before a Black Bolt.

Oh and my latest gripe. The new stands suck. The tips keep bending. My Angel now flies at a 45 degree angle because the tip of his backstand warped so much.
