    I hated AoA. I think that was about when I stopped. Funnily, I started back up with the House of M reset. Didn’t feel for that either, but by then Whedon and Morrison were doing good stuff. And I really love X-Statix.

    AoA was one of my favorites. About ten years ago I loaned all the issues to a coworker who ended up quitting. I never got my comics back. I've had my eye on the omnibus for a while now.

    At the time I really disliked AoA, but when I went and reread it years later I thought it held up better than some of the other "mega events" the X-Men have had. It's certainly better than Onslaught and Phalanx Covenant.

    The Iron man / Iron Spider 2 pack is exclusive of whom? And the 80th Captain America? I dont see preorders for any of those open anywhere.

    Yeah, my buddies who didn’t read older stories (Silver and Bronze age) didn’t feel the impact like I did. Personally, I felt that Gwen was the ideal girlfriend and wife material for Peter.

    MJ was quite a character back then and not very likeable?

    If I remembered correctly, Gwen was killed off because the writers felt she was stifling Peter’s character - if they got married.

    Such an irony considering Marvel made PP and MJ tie the knot and “undo” everything because it was affecting Parker’s character.

    Thanks man! For a moment i thought i made the “list”! What a relief! :) 

    Metallic paint...sigh...gives me grief every time. Either they “fade” or “leech” for me...

    The Spider sense spidey is the one the “light up” eyes gimmick?

    If so i really like the body proportions on that one compared to the McFarlane Spidey...but I couldn’t get pass the gimmick...

    Wow, the skirt piece on your Galactus still looks good! Mine had all faded!

    Wowzers! The paint on your Colossus is really good! The ones (around 10 sets) I saw at my import shop had jacked-up paint - especially on the abominal area (yellow).

    Says it's at my store. Last seen at 4:30 yesterday. No info when I click. The tracking number is from North Dakota.

    I'm thinking it's just not informative.

    Yeah, I don't get that argument. I've also seen people say that Gwen was a boring character, but that's not her fault, that's the fault of the writers. Of coruse MJ is going to be a better character since she then got 20+ more years of life compared to Gwen.

    Oh, the paint jobs are outstanding. I think the only flaw on Colossus is the yellow on the neck on the sides of his back. It could have used another coat of yellow, but you don't even notice it unless you are looking at it close up.

    That would be crazy. If that happens, hopefully there will be a limit on how many you can buy.

    So much good stuff coming out I don’t know what to get first. Or how I’ll afford getting everything :/

    It really bugs me that Iron Man/Spidey pack only has thwip hands for Spidey.

    After all of these SDCC reveals of versions of characters from old storylines, I can't help but think of Dwight Stall's past comments regarding Phoenix Force Cyclops & how they couldn't release him due to it being an old costume that he doesn't wear anymore. :rolleyes:

    Well, Cookie Monster generally creates more revenue. Theres no Galactus on Pampers.

    Actually, MJ just became more popular with fans. Gwen was planned as Peter's "true love," but fans kept asking for more MJ back then, so the creative team pivoted. That's from Stan Lee, anyways. She was the more "free spirited" character, so not unlikeable, just very different from Gwen's portrayal.

    As for the undoing of Peter and MJ's marriage, it wasn't made because it was objectively felt that the marriage was affecting Peter's character. It was made as Joe Quesada's call because HE felt it'd preserve the longevity of the character and bring him back to "his roots" and blah blah blah (he just didn't care for the marriage at all). His idea, he pushed for it as EiC. Also, fuck him. That felt like a fireable offense THEN, let alone now, when the obvious comeback should be "Get writers to craft more interesting stories, you idiot" and "Don't sabotage years of stories with a corny angle you force on people because you don't personally care for something and will bend over backward to undo it."

    (I would've respected a divorce much more. "Superhero dealing with failed marriage" could've been interesting, though something I also would've feared how it was handled for different reasons. Even then, it's at least not commonly depicted in superhero comics, and would've offered an opportunity to keep presenting Peter and MJ as grownups while still shaking up their personal lives a bit.)

    I forget, how big is Galactus compared to, say, Master Mold?

    Basically, a King of the Sentinels that can reproduce asexually. It's a giant, towering Sentinel robot/Sentinel-making factory on legs. Depending on the size of other Sentinels being depicted, it's either rather large (smaller Sentinels) or HUGE (typical giant Sentinels).
