    I'd rather have a part fall off than break.

    So I opened up Wasp, still fiddling with it before I take a pic or two. She’s great so far, but I think one of the legs is slightly longer than the other. I’ve tried for about 10 minutes lining up everything as best as I could, to make sure it wasn’t my fault, and I’m pretty sure it’s indeed a slight difference. Not a big deal when posed, but still kind of annoying tbh. Anyone else’s have this issue? Or am I making mountains out of mole hills?

    EDIT: Yeah tried some more, no luck. I think some of the leg pieces may have been inserted unevenly during production. Would it be worthwhile asking for a replacement, or nah?

    Definitely. Marvel Legends one is okay but an SHF would be cool. Perfect accessory would be
    a filing cabinet

    That would be hilarious!

    Anyone curious if Figuarts is gonna make a
    Quantum suit mold that’s packed with extra heads, just to get it out of the way?

    My opinion on that isn’t finalized until I either see the movie or better/not terribly photoshopped promo stills are released. But assuming they turn out good in the movie, then yes. However, I don’t want those suits to be the only figures we get of the characters. They’re obviously gonna have their normal style suits too, so I want figures of those as well. This goes for Hasbro and Marvel Legends too, not just with Tamashii and SHF

    I believe ROTS Yoda is supposedly a Japan-only item (presumably Tamashii Web exclusive so Bluefin most likely won't sell it Stateside). May have to wait a little bit for sites like BBTS to secure their stock via a Japanese intermediary. The markup will probably be higher as a result too.

    Got Wasp and Falcon in today

    Wasp: Excellent sculpt, like the wing articulation. Nothing really to complain about except what people have mentioned: needed a backpack without wings to swap out, and the bicep swivel is lazy as hell. Instead of a peg and a "cup", it's just a cut that breaks up the arm sculpt. Lazy.

    Falcon: it uses the older "drop" style hips, and it doesn't have any bicep swivel - the same flaws as all the IW figures. Again, SHF should be held to a higher standard of articulation. The sculpt itself is good, but they could have put in more work to make it better. Also, the wings look good enough, but it would have been nice to see again, more effort put into it to have multi-piece wings as well as removable Redwing. I'd be happy to pay for a BETTER one, but there were cost cuts. I know they have the engineering to pull all that off, they've done it with Kamen Rider and such
