    The Jackman Wolverine got me in the mood for more clawed Canadians so I finally got around to picking up the X-Force Wolverine.

    Man, those claws really are a dream come true. Super stylized or not, at least they fit perfectly. Only gripes are the lack of a boot swivel (seriously... why?) and the headsculpt. It's definitely not the worst one they've made, but the only comic Wolverine headsculpt I've really liked is the tiger stripe one. All the others are just "okay" at best.

    My favorite Legends Wolverine head sculpt is from the Toy Biz tiger stripe Wolverine from their X-men Classics subline(the one with single jointed knees and that weird contraption you could plug into the back). The head sculpt was the best thing about that figure.

    From Hasbro my favorite Wolverine masked head sculpt is from the 2016 brown costume buck.

    Oh yeah, that tiger stripe has a nice headsculpt.

    As for the brown costume, it kinda falls into the same camp as the X-Force one for me. Not bad, but I really like Wolverine to have a bit of a sneer.

    Gotcha, for me Hasbro tends to get the mask ears off. On their 2018 tiger stripe the mask ears look good from the side, but not from head on(this can be subtly modded via warm/cold water setting or carefully making a cut where the mask ear meets the head). The mask ears look better on their xforce one rather than their tiger stripe but I definitely see where you’re coming from for the sneer. The 2016 brown costume one is completely the opposite, looks like he’s smiling.

    Your picture really demonstrates how "Mom Says It's My Turn to Use the X-Box" huge the height difference between Jackman and comic Logan is. It made recreating that cover a real challenge for me.

    I've been messing around with retro spider man and he's a pretty fun figure to mess around with. I kind of wish his waist was also on a ball joint. ML joints still feel a little gummy for my tastes, but it's still better than older releases. I might try some of the webbing effect parts from figuarts and mafex releases. I'm enjoying the Steve Ditko head a lot more than I thought I would. My copy sadly came with 2 right closed fists! If anyone out there has 2 left fists let me know maybe we can do a trade? I bought this from gamestop, do you guys think they could send me a replacement fist?

    Mysterio's out now? Dang it. Never a break. XD
    Just got Age of Apocalypse...Apocalypse here a week ago to be caught up with everything in stores right now and looking forward to HOPEFULLY getting the Hellfire Club set at end of the month.

    Question, is the Vintage Spider Man worth picking up? I’m not that big of a fan of Spider Man or at least Peter Parker. So I already use the Ultimate Spider Man for my Avengers shelf and the Pizza Spider Man for my Spider-Verse shelf. Which to me already feels like enough Peter for my shelves not including the alternate universes.

    Yeah, picked up Mysterio from GameStop's website last week. Honestly, a lot of the Marvel Legends releases have been hitting early. The Amazon Nimrod set shipped early and I've also got the Rogue/Pyro pack sitting in my POL at BBTS. Go figure.

    Huh. I grabbed mine to check and that’s weird that there’s no boot swivel. I actually picked him up recently too to go with my Hascon Deadpool and now X Force Psylocke. Wished he came with the Apocalypse Wolverine larger biceps

    My Nimord set is slated to be shipped sometime between September 11th and...some other lengthy date. We'll see given my G.I.Joe Classified Storm Shadow went from being delivered to me by this last Friday to now sometime between end of the month into October.

    I did get the Rogue/Pyro 2 pack from Chosen Prime a week back, and have my issues with the figure (mismatching yellow plastics and crappy flame effects), but I doubt we'll see another Pyro again for some time and I want to complete the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants here.

    I think it's a really cool figure, and it was a must-buy for me, but I don't own any other Spider-man figures. In your situation I'd say you're good and don't need this.

    I haven't shipped my Rogue/Pyro set from BBTS yet, but I've had my Nimrod set for about a week now. It's kind of arbitrary how and in what order Amazon seems to send figures out. :lol  Shame to hear that Pyro has mismatching yellows but that seems to be a Hasbro issue across a lot of their yellow figures in multiple lines.

    Yeah, some photos I've seen make it look like the yellows better match, but my copy has a much brighter yellow for the legs versus the upper legs/torso.

    A cheap knockoff Billy Batson who thankfully didn't escape the 90's.
