    Thinking about the X-Force pack. They know it would go on discount outside of an exclusive. I’m a little salty because Cannonball should have had this gimmick with the legs the first time. Then they wouldn’t need to do this and could have given us another member of the team or made it a 2-Pack.

    yep, there was also a Toybiz version that got scrapped pretty quick because the feature didn't work so well and they swapped out the action feature

    Pretty sure it's only the hands that are stretched and those are swappable between the two sets of arms

    Got Modular Armor Iron Man today. I had mixed feelings about the gold from the stock pics but in-hand pics started to win me over and it looks better in person. It can replicate many of the poses from the MVC2 game. Would I buy a repaint of it packed with another repaint of it as War Machine from MVC2 with their proton cannons and that huge missle launcher War Machine had instead(along with smart bombs and mini-missles)? Maybe. This figure makes up for the last Modular armor Legends figure by Toy Biz from 2006. Inevitably it’ll probably be repainted in bright yellow and red to match the comics and cartoon. Wouldn’t mind a vintage card cartoon repaint with swappable helmet with a mouth sculpted(used both in the show). The F4 reveal earlier makes me all nostalgic for the Marvel Action Hour with this armor and we need a new comic Mandarin. Bam reason enough to make a cartoon version on retro card not long after either.

    Also got the Infinity Saga Iron Man vs Thanos set. Could’ve come with more like a swappable right arm for Thanos. Thanos armor could’ve looked a lot better too, it looks dull and somewhat cheap. The helmet head has the eyelids squinting a lot, I almost thought they were molded shut but they aren’t. Right leg on mine sometimes detaches at the thigh but isn’t broken. Skipped the 2018 BAF and glad I did since I have this now. Overall, good movie Legends Thanos but underwhelming in light of how much more improved some of the Infinity Saga Legends are compared to their older counterparts. Just a bit more in regards to extra parts, molded colors and paint apps could’ve made it much more appealing. The potential is there, just not all used up.

    Meanwhile movie Iron Man is alright. Head sculpts look more like RDJ than earlier photos led me to believe. Since this is a mass market line, I’ve tempered my expectations so while there’s room to improve, it’s better than most of Hasbro’s previous attempts at RDJ’s likeness. Thank god they didn’t use the pancake batter consistency paint on the face(remember the Black Widow movie Legends figures from last year?). The blade tends to tilt downward due to the grip of the hand meant to hold it. Shield doesn’t attach securely. The body could’ve used deeper knee cuts. The main improvement is using the swappable barbell neck joints for the torso. Clever but I think the neck sculpts should extend a bit to cover the gap(makes it look like Thanos almost beheaded Tony before he made the final snap).

    If you’re of the opinion that MCU Legends age quicker than comic Legends, then I think you’ll know what to expect with the Infinity Saga Thanos vs Iron Man set. It’s like a good catch up set for anyone who missed out on Endgame Iron Man and/or didn’t build BAF MCU Thanos. Just has some added goodies, some newly tooled and retooled parts, but leaves some aspects to be desired(especially given how important both characters were to not only that movie specifically but the MCU in general). $50 would’ve been a more reasonable price.

    Saw Gaurdsman today too. Torso had good paint apps but the limb paint apps looked cheap. If you’ve seen some Legends by Hasbro that use metallic paint but have unevenly applied apps, it was like that.

    So is the High Evolutionary based on a newer look? On a closer look he looks very off to me. The red looks really off to me.

    My main issue with Guardsman is the two shades of green are too close; not enough contrast. From afar he looks like a green Silver Surfer. The darker green should have been much darker.

    But I like the character and the armor design, so I’m happy I got him anyway.

    Now waiting for Amazon to ship my Modular IM.

    I kind of like the eyebrows. They look like molten glass close up:

    I just wish the face itself wasn't so round.
