    I missed out on Beast and would love a reissue and also Jubilee but with a new head sculpt to match the cartoon more(maybe opaque or metallic link visor this time to mirror the high reflectivity it implied on the show).

    Hulkbot is fucking awesome(aside from the missle stuck on mine)! Agreed that it still holds up and I like their Mr. Fixit.

    Fuuuuuuuuck. I actually had loads of red flags on an unboxing video here recently. The reviewer glossed over it but the robot was clearly doing the splits on a smooth surface because the weight was too much for the legs to stay standing in most positions. He couldn't even hold its own hand up to support the weight of the tentacle.

    We're on a TF board so we've all seen these issues before in large scale figures and we all know the signs. It's looking a lot like they might have skimped on adding rachet joints and within a month then they'll be a floppy mess.

    Hulkbot was great and I LOVED the Professor Hulk from the same time. TBH When they really went all out and tried they did great stuff. The X2 Nightcrawler still holds up as a fantastic figure.

    Don't judge me, but even to this day I have a soft spot for the rotocase Hulk from the first movie.

    If you're talking about the run away tv shows, then I'll have to put a full stop on that thought for 2 reasons:
    1- they need to release more comics version first
    2- just my opinion but I watched only the 1st 3 episodes and it was horrible, I hated every single change they made compared to the comics. I am a bug fan of the initial run and was really let down. Especially when I heard good things about the show before.

    Of course that is just my opinion

    If you really want them I suggest getting in contact with customiser

    I think after the announcements of the Spiderman 2 and Wolverine games, we will get some new figures for the gamerverse subline

    Don't worry, I just want everybody have some love for their favourites series made by Marvel TV

    All this love for Gremlin’s Hulkbot on the same page as Sentinel joint complaints seems ironic, gone through like five of them - many, many years ago too - and they constantly ended up with weight issues, whether holding poses or even standing. Also got a missile stuck once so I know that pain. Soooo much bang for your buck otherwise though, the Hulk Classics were great, even if none surpassed Spider-Hulk.

    I just watched a review on the Sentinel...and man, I'm glad I didn't back that or Galactus. It's not because they aren't cool...because they are...but because they are so fuckin' huge. Jesus. It's tough to get a feel for the size until you see one of their hands compared to a human hand. It's just crazy...

    Shiklah was on sale on HasbroToyShop eBay for $11, lol... Couldn't resist and 111% bought it to get Jeff the Baby Land Shark. :D 

    Jeff is a brick, but awesome to have. Shiklah looks pretty cool I guess, but the mold really sucks. She won't stand (notice I have sticky tak under her feet). Paired her with underwear Deadpool to complete the look I suppose. :p

    Wasn't aware of this post when I went to check target, but glad someone let the group know.

    If this is what I get when target cancels my order during their 25% off promotion for the item just a few months prior,

    then I'll take it.

    Holy cow. I would be extremely unimpressed if after a year of waiting, my $350 figure couldn't even stand up. I hope Hasbro addresses this issue for Sentinel owners, and has it fixed entirely before Galactus rolls around.
    First thing I thought when I saw the trailer for the new game! Hopefully we get a new PS4/PS5 Spidey with dedicated sculpting...
    ...in red & blue, and in black!! :rock
