    Yeah, I’m not thrilled with the face sculpts either. There’s something off about both of them, maybe in the shape of the nose.

    yeah. very disappointed by the heads. pretty much forced to use the blowing hair. I can't get her to turn her head with the other one due to the extra large collars. at least we got her finally...but in hand...it blew my high.

    When I look at the pink-lipped sculpt, this is what I see:

    Do you think it's the lack of a widow's peak in her hairline?

    That's certainly part of it.

    Ms. Lion makes way more sense in a classics wave.

    I'd think if they were going to release the same costume, they'd do a Spider-man and his Amazing Friends three pack for Comicon or something and we'd all buy it for not only the new Firestar head, but an updated Ice Man and the otherwise-rare classic Spidey.

    I'd be perfectly ok with an Amazing Friends 3-pack, but not if it's an unobtainium exclusive. Amazon or fan-channel, sure.

    A retro carded Firestar would be cool, I'm a sucker for those.

    I still hold out hope that they will do a stand alone Iceman.
    Reason being that usually 3 packs have at least one all new figure. But a 3 pack of retro Spidey, Firestar and Iceman would all be rereleases/remolds

    They need to retire that head ASAP. The Old man Logan head with the hat (from the Hawkeye 2 pack) was pretty good imo.

    That hasn’t been a thing for me, personally. I think the problem with the cartoon face is the shape of the eyes. It seems like they’re sloping up towards her brow instead of towards each other. It could just be that the bottoms of her eyes are too straight, which gives them a funny shape and shows too much skin beneath her eyes in the mask. The shape of her mask is a little off too.

    The face on the wind blown head is too old. She doesn’t look like she’s in her late teens/early twenties.

    What other Spider-Man villains are missing? Other than stuff from the ultimate universe all I can think of is swarm , paste pot mr negative, tarantula and maybe like menace and the grey goblin

    Credit to Hasbro, they've got most of the key villains covered, I think it's pretty much down to collectors wanting specific tweaks to make em the particular versions they want (i.e. Doc Ock in suit from the early 90s, a bulkier McFarlane style Venom etc). The only ones that I can think of right now that have multiple appearances and were parts of a significant era are probably Vermin, Cardiac from the 90s, and Morlun and the Inheritors from the Spider-verse storyline.

    True I want stuff like alternate costumes and stuff like animated series versions, oh another villain I forgot the spot. He’d be easy to make

    That’d be nice, would avoid paying for the SHF Fury...

    I’m also still hoping they reuse the movie Venom body for a classic comic version soon. It’s the best Venom body they’ve ever done imo, it’s too good of an opportunity to pass up

    Yeah he'd be easy. Just thought of a few more from the 90s, again not really prominent now but they played parts in some key storylines - Judas Traveller from the Clone Saga and Alistair Smythe from the multiple Spider-Slayer storyarcs - who even showed up in the cartoon and got an action figure in the 90s.

    They could finish off the Maximum Carnage gang.

    I'm pretty much done my Spidey villain collection. I got everyone I remember. (well, want to remember) Except maybe, a classic suit Shocker, Hammerhead on a body that suits him, Smythe and Silvermane with a body. Then it's all maybes like a Mr. Negative, Hobgoblin with a Romita headsculpt, a taller and buffer Scorpion that'll never happen.
