    Yeah, wasn't implying he needed to be so I hope it didn't come across that way. Heroes come in all different forms my man and what really matters is how you feel about him. :thumb

    Likely this. They are now playing catch up on developing new figures as, likely, the figures that were set to be released for this time frame are being held for the movie release.

    Wave 1 has been the only one I've seen consistently available from Amazon, Pulse, etc. (and were even included in the limited in stock Pulse sale). And sometimes Gung Ho. Everyone else is like blink and you'll miss them.

    But haven't they had plenty of time to get their shit together? Clearly this is a popular line. It's time they got off their ass.

    Personally I don’t think it would be in bad taste at all but I think you are really the only person that can answer that question honestly. Everyone’s different.

    Even Hasbro made a figure of Stan Lee after he passed away. So it’s not without precedent

    I think I'm going to do it, just need to find a figure that would work of what I'm just to interpret as my brother.

    ^Great figure!!!

    This Alley Viper was packed 1 per case for wave 1 of POC if I remember correctly. Hasbro has consistently been making bad decisions about figure assortments for years now.

    You do know that there's still sort of a global health crisis going on right? But yea, Hasbro is just sitting on their asses twiddling their thumbs :rolleyes:

    Yeah, and that doesn't seem to be stopping them from everything else they're producing. :rolleyes:

    And I'll add that I'm not being impatient here. I'm simply making observations. Honestly they can take their time, because I'm coming to a point where I can't afford this hobby anymore, and I don't want it to come to that.

    Yes they are still producing, but they can't just pump the brakes to change what is already planned/scheduled because that would result in even more slow down.

    Wow, at a minimum we are getting AWESOME figures for this movie. If this movie has a halfway decent fight between these two and they look like the toys I am going to go ahead and have that middle-aged heart-attack I’ve been putting off.

    I guess I’m the only one that can easily pass on that Storm Shadow. My wallet thanks me. It doesn’t look terrible but also not something I’m running out to spend over $100 for.
