    What's interesting is my Target had more than that. They had 12 of each.

    OMG though, I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks Ikaris looks like Bucky though. Every time we see the trailer that's all I think of.

    I was really tempted on this as I like the head sculpt but I didn’t like that the costume’s webbing wasn’t lined.

    So it looks like of my Must-Haves of the Spider-Man Retro Collection, the only three other than Spider-Man I can't find in stock anywhere are Kingpin, Mysterio and Green Goblin, and Green Goblin is the only one that seems to go for more about $10 over msrp on eBay. Really not a fan of the eye deco on that one either, so I might just pass it and hope that as one of Spidey's arch-enemies, he gets an update for the 60th also. Which reminds me, I'm surprised there hasn't been a Doc Ock in this line yet as far as I can tell. He seems to be up there with Green Goblin in terms of being considered Spider-Man's arch enemy, I imagine a new figure of him would sell better than someone like Hammerhead.

    (Hammerhead fans I sincerely apologize for suggesting he's not a top tier villain)

    Looks fake as hell, but I’d like this for another D+ wave lineup.

    It’s a great show! Having re watched it and xmen recently, it’s noticing everything how much better the spider-man animation is (especially the backgrounds, vs the earlier x men seasons).

    As others have said, I’m sure there’ll be a (pinless) new spider man along at some point.

    As the Ultron would be the One I'd want way more than any of the others it would be a dick-punch making him the BAF.

    Nothing some black paint and a finger can't fix.

    This is my 2019 figure, about halfway through the process of lining him and painting him blue.

    When the Spider-Man Retro Collection debuted the classic Doc Ock had only been out two years. I’m guessing we’ll get him eventually on a retro card, hopefully with bendy wire tentacles this time.

    Paint? How do you paint that fine? I figured you would use a gundam marker or something.

    I just brush some on and then take off the excess with my finger while it's still wet. Just your average acrylic from a paint set. The trick is not to use too much.

    Gundam Marker would work too, but I don't have that kind of money.

    I'm really hoping the lack of any Doc Ock rerelease is because they have been working on bendy wire tentacles for him, but I wouldn't be surprised if that really wasn't the case.

    SUS? Is that an acronym for something in What If?

    Oh, and I've been reading the House of X/Powers of X book and now I kind of what those X-Men figures from that run, but it doens't seem like they are cheaper. In fact, Amazon wants more than retail on some of them.

    It's short for "suspicious" in modern lingo.

    Man that looks better than the normal release, I'll be doing that when I get the set today.

    That got me thinking ... I'm wondering if the new Morlun coming out is going to eventually get a redeco into one of the rest of the Hellfire members, or maybe Mastermind gets redeco'd into his comic appearance. The longer coat matches how Mastermind was drawn in the comics during the Byrne run.

    Yeah, definitely fake. Hasbro doesn't use images from the comics/movie/animation on the backs of the packages. They use images of the toys themselves. The images from the comic/movie/animation are always on the sides of the packages. That said it does look like an interesting lineup, but not exactly what I'd want from a future D+ What If? wave. It's probably about halfway there.

    A little update. I took the chest armor overlay off the BAF Thanos and replaced the battle damaged overlay on the IS 2-pack Thanos. Then I put his original legs back on and placed the arms I modded yesterday on him and threw on the BAF head to give me my final MCU Thanos.

    How hard was it to swap the armor? And which arms did you finally end up using?
