    Whoever at Hasbro was the one that suggested making a Ka-zar figure and making him this good needs a raise. Great poseability, 3 sets of hands, a cool looking spear, a really nice knife and a great head portrait! There is also storage for the knife! The only minor complaint is the reused forearms that have the glove line and honestly, I don't notice it that much when I'm messing around with this guy. Ka-zar looks great with the Sauron BAF.

    Just waiting on Cable to complete Zabu, but damn is that a great looking Sabertooth cat. He'll get his photos when he's got all his legs. Hasbro really needs to get on to doing a 1/12 scale articulated animal line.

    Ka-Zar is great. Mine copy is a little gummy but I love the figure - mostly because Hasbro made the best He-Man figure I’ve ever seen. :p

    Indeed they should. I'd definitely buy a rereleased Sauron. My BAF version has gotten a little loose in a few of the joints and I'd love to get a newer one that's a bit tighter for posing.

    Yes, it’s a good figure. Tbh I wished Hasbro released Conan when Marvel had the rights for him…missed opportunity IMO.

    I'm honestly not sure toy rights would have gone with publishing rights.

    I'm reasonably happy with my Super7 as I want "first appearance" Conan and the scale is actually appropriate (he should be close to 7 inches in ML scale) but Boss Fight's Red Sonja looks great and I'm optimistic they'll get Conan rights.

    Probably right after Executive Replicas does a $100 version.

    I kind of figured it will be a Shanna 2 pack.

    Maybe with the blue or sometimes purple loincloth or using the Lizard legs for pants since Sauron does wear pants sometimes.

    Anyone have a direct Target link for the new Iron Man 20 in the retro wave? Trying to locate it locally.

    Iron Man Retro has already been showing at Target stores.

    It’s probably dated for some time in June as part of a reset and could pop up online then.

    Target has lots of stuff on sale this week. The newest one on the site I think was the tombstone retro in the suit, but I didn't check real hard for others.

    I actually wouldn’t mind a smaller Sauron to be honest, maybe a retro release looking more like his vintage figure and cartoon appearance. Apart from the pterodactyl features, I just never really saw him as this huge beast.

    If Conan’s rights was still with Marvel it would be easier for Hasbro to obtain the rights and release a figure.

    If I were Disney, I wouldn’t ‘allow’ Hasbro to release a figure that is owned by another company to be released under one of my flagship franchises.

    Yeah that was the thing, Marvel did have the Conan comics rights again for a few years back in 2019, just barely losing them again a couple years ago. If I was a betting man, I would have sworn the odds were good we were at least getting either a classic John Buscema Conan or the way he was drawn in "Savage Avengers", but I would have lost that bet since we got nothing.

    I wish Hasbro would do another Legends adjacent wave of Legendary Comic Book Heroes and give us various characters in a Legends style. Conan. Zorro. The Spirit. Samaritan (Astro City). Jack-In-The-Box (Astro City). Updated Witchblade and Savage Dragon. A limited line like this would be much appreciated.
