At least I can see where the 600 US bucks is going in this case. The MP line looks more ridiculous by the day.

@  Maximus Ambus : (22 July 2019 - 07:09 AM)

It's ridiculous. I'll stick to Armadacron

If anything, shipping is going to make the actual toy's price look affordable.

@  Pennpenn : (22 July 2019 - 02:28 AM)

Its like, $550 ish in US money (so probably about $800 for my Australian self) and is taller than TR Fort Max. He's gonna be a hefty boy.

It seems like, with these kind of things, anything not TF-specific is either in an existing thread or just not discussed since they're not part of something deemed important enough to get its own thread already.

It was easier for me since I didn't start collecting until they switched to the movie-focused Infinite format, although I have picked up some older stuff, and SDCC exclusives are too much of a pain for me to bother with.

 

Also, I wouldn't be surprised if we saw another release of this Gamora down the line, but in her GotG uniform colors.

Saddness is going to TRU this morning and seeing a Agents of SHIELD special set (Coulson, Fury, Hill) as well as all the pieces to Thanos (with Hellcat instead of Spider Woman) and not having the money for all of it. At least picked up the new AoU Cap figure as he's my fav though i kinda wished I had picked up Hulk as well. No luck with finding an Agent Venom (at least one in a less then decimated box) but was able to find an Anti-Venom so at least happy bout that. It also saddens me going to Target (and apparently Meijrs as well) and seeing a Infinite Legends figure for $19.99 but a 3.75" figure is $12.99 WTH? I know gas cost and other factors apply but man, that is nuts.

 

Still trying to decide if I wanna open my other SWitch Legend or return it. Managed to find (slightly off topic) the Avengers Forever issues I needed at Half Price Books (already have #1 & 2) as well as a copy of the new Rage of Ultron OGN for half price :D, even grabbed a AoU Quicksilver and Nick Fury Heroclix from Target. I won't really need the BAF part that comes with Anti-Venom so if anyone needs it, give a holler. That War Machine is simple yet it works well IMO. Sadly was never much a fan of Iron Patriot-Machine so going back to WMachine makes me happy. The GotG Legends set looks nice too but as much as I loved DnAs run in the comics I've transitioned to the movie style characters now.

 

Big Show: That is an awesome Mimic mod u r doing. He was always one of my favorite characters in Exiles and his ending always saddend me. Kinda hoping with Secret Wars getting ready to start we might somehow see the original team pop up like only they can do. :)

Thanks for the link! Preordered.

 

Weird how they seem to have changed Drax's deco. And removable hands too; presumably so he can hold his knives better?

Well, he's apparently a combination of Radioactive Man and movie Drax, so it's a completely new deco.

The only character there that's completely the same mold as a previous version of themselves is Star-Lord, but even he has differently colored boots.

For anyone getting the 2.5, the cycle that is in Captain Americas tower set is not compatible with the Quinjet (I initially thought it was a reapint but its a retool or new mold)...despite the fact they have the same kind of launch mechanism. I didnt really find anything to say either way to be honest.

Shamelessly plugging a Kickstarter I hope succeeds here, but if anyone wants to add female SHIELD and Hydra figures to their MU lines, the Legion XIV Kickstarter for a 1:18-compatible military female base figure is now featuring SHIELD and Hydra decos being offered as stretch goals:

A productive run to Target today. I'm aware the figures are pure shit, but they do make good army builders/minions/chronies.

Wow, those look like Happy Meal toys.  I saw that TRU has some exclusive repaints of Fury/Ironman and Widow/Cap.  The Widow one looks pretty good with the blue highlights, but since I already have that mould from the last time it was released, it was an easy pass.

I agree that they're far, FAR from ideal but those two Ultrons look great as drones flanking the proper MU one.

I'm not sure if you are saying he is slightly too big based on just being a big toy, or based on appearances in the movie.  From what I can tell, the ML figures is undersized.  Based on some screenshots I am looking at, this figure is just about the right height.  The other team members should come up to Hulk's abdomen area when everyone is standing up straight (ish).

Looking at the comparison pics in the review I watched, he seemed big even for the cinematic Hulk. That's most likely just my tastes. I am the guy who has a 5-inch movie Hulk standing among my Marvel Universe display after all. :D

They don't make it easy to get a good bead on his height compared to the others.  Hulk is almost always in the background of any group shot, understandably.
