    In the first picture, his "rocks" are drawn like concentric rings travelling down from his neck. The way Toybiz interpreted that look, he looks like he's covered in shingles.

    As for the second design, a lot of the older artwork didn't really define his anatomy at all. Just a pile of flat rocks.

    I'm not exactly sure which of those looks are referenced when fans talk about the "rock plates", but those are the only distinct enough ones I think that fit the bill. Going through Google's image archives, there's also been times when he's been drawn more "muddy", with less distinct rocks, and then an awkward time in the 90's when he mutated further and got all "spikey".

    Excuse the dirty thumbnail. Did yard work. I couldn't even tell what they replaced the BAF with.

    ^^^ That's nothing. I had a local swapper just take the belt and stinger bracelets off a Vintage Black Widow AND glue the package back together... they also did it twice and put a Kitty Pryde head on the 2nd one. Borderline psychotic.

    Yup, it should be out in the US. One of my sources highlighted it’s out in the US and 1-2 import stores who get their stocks for the US got theirs.

    Yup, Thing should be out in the US also.
    Wolverine is the extra packed figure yes?
    That’s one of the strangest swap ever...maybe he wanted the armour for customisation purposes?

    Just in time too as I'm so excited to go see Ant Man & the Wasp tomorrow!

    Oh and as a side note I just discovered that Marvel made a couple anime. I was surfing through the tv tonight and saw them airing a couple episodes of an X-Men & Blade anime. Combing two of my favorite things (Marvel & anime) together? Hell yeah and they aren't to bad I mean I never knew how perfect Steve Blum is as the voice for Wolverine.

    The Thing looks great, but I do wish his head was more round-ish. As it is, kinda looks like it's been squashed a little bit from the sides.

    The thing about usb keyboard lights is that you never know how thick the bendable tube is, unless you see them in person. I ordered some (not the ones you have linked) and I thought they were too thin. So I went for these thicker ones (light socket extenders). They are teeny bit more thick than the ones that come with the figure.

    You've never heard Blum's Wolverine? He's been in that role far longer than the anime. I think maybe since the X-Men Legends videogame (and the Marvel Ultimate Alliance successors), and he's pretty much held that role ever since, other than a few odd aberrations.

    The (Madhouse) Marvel anime are pretty bland. Not exactly horrible, but they don't really do anything interesting with the property, either. At worst, they're just overly predictable because they like to pretend there are big stakes at play, but you know in the end nothing will change for the status quo.

    The best of the bunch is probably X-Men, though. That was actually quite well done, other than a horribly misused Storm. It's probably the strongest because rather than try and come up with an original story that misses the tone of the main canon, it's mostly a mashup of a bunch of different comic stories. Also, the character designs... Storm and Emma Frost are... wowsers.
