Carnage arrived early.
Yeah, I did the same. Pulse was showing November first so I cancelled on Friday and ordered Kingpin from Amazon with my free 30 day Prime trial and he arrived today.
I got him and Morbius from Amazon today. Both are pretty nice figures. Morbius is pretty basic, but Carnage is fantastic. I love how this time around the black goo is all sculpted.
Looks good, and she sold out on pulse quick
Trying to decide what head I want to display him with.
Mercari for $22 shipped loose no baf.
Has Silver Centurion Iron Man appeared on Walgreens.com yet?
Oh shit, good call, guys! Just did the same!
I dunno but the Marvel Select version is up for pre-order on Amazon:
I don’t think so, hope I’m wrong. I haven’t found a listing for it.
Just got the Storm/Thunderbird 2-pack delivered from Target. The figures look great. Storm's capes are rubbery but really nice, will please the people that don't like the thin nylon-ish capes of previous Storm figures. Thunderbird seems a little on the small side. While he appeared in what, two comics (?), I always imagined him big like Warpath. Not sure what buck this is, but it seems rather ordinary, not a big brawler. Paint is so-so, some slop, but probably not much different from the average ML.
The pinless joints on Storm are a real mixed bag. The elbows seem fine. The lower half of the knees and and ankles are anything but fine. The upper part of the knees are ok, but the lower half will not budge. Trying to force it makes the upper leg flair/mushroom out, indicating that it's in a bind. I'm afraid to put much pressure on it for fear of breaking it. One ankle is ok, the other is frozen. Not sure how to free up a "pinless" joint. Anyone have thoughts?
Overall it's a deco and new figure that were both needed. Sculpt and deco are 9/10. The execution is a 6/10. But if you're into Giant-Sized x-men, this pair is a must.
I'm using the traditional head since I haven't read the run the new head design is from.
Mine move but their range is limited. It’s 35-40 degree bend for the top knee joint, about the same for the 2nd, so at full bend for both, makes for just about 90 degree leg bend. May have been better if it was a single ball jointed knee hinge but I’m guessing maybe it would’ve compromised the sculpted more.
Might be best to dunk it into hot water for a few seconds then try gently twisting free. Or sticking into the freezer for a few minutes then gently twisting free. If neither of those work, that’s when I resort to seeping a bit of RC car shock oil into the joint socket(which would be harder here since there’s not much room). With your copy I think some of the gloss coat seeped into the foot socket and dried, making the joint stuck as if glued.
And the neck. The previoius version's neck was just a stump. This one clearly has the barbell and disc.
Where is Morbius on Amazon? I could not find a listing for him at all the other day when I looked.
Nope. Thunderbird has never been portrayed as big as Warpath. Or I guess I should say Warpath was always bigger than Thunderbird. Thunderbird is 6'1" while Warpath is 7'2".
Wouldn't you just heat them up with a hair dryer as normal?
Yay, Tbird/Storm arriving Oct 10, shipping from MN to OR
October 9th for me. I’m glad to have a first appearance Storm.
No it doesn't. It's the same fucking Moonstone torso with a collar accessory.
I preordered him back when he was first announced so no idea if he's still in stock or the listing is still up. Amazon has a habbit of closing listings temporarily when they start filling preorders.
I finally found a Domino that is printed correctly. The neutral face still isnt up to snuff but, the smiling face looks just like Zazie.
Ive decided to quit being a bitch and keep Negasonic. Now, gimme Colossus.
Since I brought up Black Cat a couple weeks ago, I instantly preordered this as soon as I got the email from Pulse this morning. I do wish she had a few more touches like a white furry liner on her neckline, but now I can put wanting another chance at the Green Goblin version to rest.
I locked in a pre order to be safe, but the more I think about it the more likely I will cancel my preorder from Pulse and say
