    I'd say if he's not he should be. The 90s Mackie run was epic. One of the best Marvel titles from the 90s period.

    Last time in stock was 2 am PST; nothing after that yet. So the edit of the buy limit is either a too-little-too-late scenario or there's another wave incoming.

    I Googled gray Beast and I guess when he was gray, it also granted him a mutant healing factor that Wolverine would be jealous of.

    When he turned blue, he didn't have that power anymore. Also, I guess the writers and artist were also trying to give him black fur, but it came up as blue in print so they stuck with that.

    He was a lion too. Roar.

    Source:
    54 When did the Beast turn blue and furry? Wasn't he unfurry again for a while? When did he become a lion?

    You might want to check your junk/spam email folder. Also, the Target app lets you know if you have the push notifications turned on.

    A lot of iconic character colourschemes were informed by the printing limitations of the day. Lots of shiny blue-black hair or leather because of what you already said. Lots of purple and green characters because they could be made distinct and not blend together (and Spidey has a inordinate amount of green-coloured villains because they contrast against his red). Disproportionate amount of red-heads in comics because it remained more defined and faded out less than blonde, and IIRC was cheaper since they didn't have to colour-mix to create brunette or black tones.

    ...no, I seriously doubt it has crossed anyone's (most) mind. 90s Ghost Rider IS that popular. Dude launched an entire brand line of comics during his height. Hasbro is just dragging their heels for reasons unknown.

    How many people outside of comics know there's more than one Rider?

    Ghost Rider was somewhat popular 30 years ago, but was always overshadowed by Wolverine, Deadpool, and Punisher at that time. Since then, a few volumes, but not even the same protagonist. In the last decade, he had a single series that died at issue 9. That doesn't exactly make him a major target for hasbro designers.

    I'm not saying he's obscure or anything, and lord knows hasbro has made far more unknown characters, so no one would be shocked, but to expect GR to be a priority, especially a version that hasn't been relevant in decades, is a stretch.

    Danny Ketch have black jacket with spikes and a cooler bike than Johnny's Chopper bike.
    For some reason, for me Ketch's bike was kinda more iconic than Blaze?
    Or just because I only read GR comics in the early-mid 90's not fully aware there was a Johnny Blaze.

    And Danny Ketch and Wolverine had a team up comic titled "Acts Of Vengeance".

    Their enemy here is Deathwatch.
    Which Hasbro hasn't made a figure of him.

    So did Black Widow. The price point tends to rot regardless of the character, distribution seems to be the biggest factor on how well it appears to sell.

    Probably about as many people that know there are two Iron Mans, two Caps. Hell, 3 Beetles lol. Even cosmic Ghost Rider, cool as he is.

    You're vastly misremembering the DKGR era. He was a major part of the anti-hero 90s revolution. And Deadpool was small potatoes compared to him back then.

    Granted, you are right that his popularity was only 5-6 years, but that popularity was during the height of 90s nostalgia period of Marvel. Which is essentially the core demographic of the MLs looking at it's current output.

    What shelves did Rider and Widow clearance on? Because they never even showed outside of TRU and Walmart here and they were gone quickly.

    Oh, cool. I'm guessing it doesn't need to be boiling water though, right? I over-killed on fixing some stress marks on my Titan Master Clobber when I separated the legs from the body and his legs are back on but looser than from the factory.
    I'll keep this in mind, thanks!

    The extra flourishes from the gold corner pieces (probably structural joining points for the underwire too) play well with the flourishes Hasbro put on the mold, like the belt buckles and sculpted chainmail. I think the same Hong Kong seller has plainer outfits for Doom available, and this deluxe one in white for a God Doom look (whatever that is).

    Come to think of it, the Hong Kong seller puts out a lot of capes/outfits/jackets and whatever cloth goods for 6" scale toys.
