That's how it works. I just hope my order from Amazon doesn't arrive crushed because they idiotically stuffed it in an envelope.

Together with the Rhino G1 sets, probably the most expensive DVDs I ever bought

I've still got the age-old Rhino sets

@  Telly : (14 October 2019 - 09:09 PM)

i didnt find that at any of the ones around here, so i had to settle for seasons 1 and 2 of duckman for $3

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Heck, I got the season 2/3 set for $3 (?) from a Dollar General discount bin :p

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 07:29 PM)

The series is pretty cheap on DVD, too, which at least will work internet or no. The complete series set seems to be OOP, but there's a Season 1 set as well as a combined 2 & 3 set.

He dubbed the peoples that saw him as bad news cannibals and savages before enslaving and wiping them out too.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 01:40 PM)

And if they had been unfriendly: he would have simply slaughtered them with diseases they couldn't fight, and technology they couldn't match until they as a people did not exist. There's something about european backgrounds that drive us to exploit.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 11:02 AM)

He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

Ive thought about grabbing Beast and Gambit a couple times lately, but knowing that I would want Cyclops and others Ive missed to complete the team makes me hesitant to pull that trigger.

Blink being my favorite character had me get her right away and since I equate her more with the AoA and Exiles its not a problem. Im almost tempted to get Archangel as he was a favorite too but like Cyke he would be a temptation for more.

But hey just this year has had me buying 4 Legends with both Scarlet Spiders, Silver Sable, and Blink. There have been quite a few others Ive thought of like Cloak and Dagger, they featured in one of my first marvel comics, but I already get too many toys as is.

Yeah, I look at these in the store and $20 a pop is enough to make me second guess buying one. Even worse is just knowing I'm going to get it home, look at it for 10 minutes, take a picture to prove I have it and then it'll sit on display collecting dust in a room I rarely even go into.

 

But you put Illyana, Blink, Jubilee and Kitty in front of my face and I freaking crack!

There's a rumoured 3 pack coming out that's Scott/Jean/Logan.  A lot of people are hoping for Jim Lee Cyclops (w/ jacket), 90s Jean re-do with pony-tail/animated headsculpt, and obligatory Wolverine (probably Tiger Stripe with unmasked head).

I already have Jim Lee Cyclops (and will also be buying the MAFEX one coming up), the first 90s Jean from the Return of ML, and of course, Apocalypse-wave Tiger Stripe Wolverine, but I would definitely be into that 3-pack.  The 80th Anniversary line is shaping up pretty nicely so far.

 

Right now, all of the classic Gold/Blue-era X-Men are still pretty recent so as to not be insanely expensive, with two exceptions:  Jim Lee Cyclops and Rogue, which are only like 2 years old.  So getting into a G/B collection is pretty opportune at the moment.

I do have the Toy Biz Bishop so there is a start. Though I do see him being a tad bit more bulky than Hasbro's, there were times it seemed like Bishop did tower over quite a few of the others at time. But if there is that 3-pack coming it would be mighty tempting.

I used to think that I didn't need to replace my ToyBiz Bishop, but I'm glad that I did.  Hasbro's colours also "pop" more.

Of course, I also thought my ToyBiz X-Men Classics Cyclops didn't need an update until I got the Hasbro Jim Lee Cyclops.

 

It's just one of those things.  You don't know how much better a figure could be until you have both versions in hand and see the dramatic differences between the two.

Except Rogue and Psylocke.  Damn, those were some poopy-faced figures.

Toybiz Rogue was super ugly. Like they needed to make her ugly continually.

I found Jim Lee Cyclops quite a few times actually. It was quite surprising.

I still want a 90s animated Morph, though.  I guess 90s Banshee, too.

Either would have been a good candidate for the retro-line.  Maybe wave 2.

See Morph I would rather have AoA or Exiles because then at least its just more than a guy in a blue and gold X-Men outfit with swapable heads. That and it'd be fun to see some of that versions more Cartoonish contortions of his own face

Got out my Toy Biz AoA Sabretooth and White Sasquatch. I'll give them some credit at detail work but damn it's still ugly. And Blink looks much too tall compared to this version of Mister Creed.

I was considering getting I to more 90s Toybiz AoA stuff...they did most of them, and I already have Magneto and Apocalypse (who is an amazingly cool but small figure).

I have Magneto, Cyclops, and Apocalypse.  They were solid figures.

Well, except for Magneto's translucent plastic hand.  It's made of that plastic that deteriorates over time and gets that "sticky" feel to it.

I think I may have kept it anyway because I didn't have the heart to throw it out like I did my 2012-13 era Walmart Jabba the Hutt.

I’ve still got my AoA Magneto somewhere. He was my stand-in for the “real” Magneto back in the 5” scale days, since the costume was close enough and he was just such a better toy than Toy Biz’s first attempt.

Got Bishop out from storage as well remembering I also got Toy Biz versions of AoA Weapon X, Planet Hulk Gladiator Hulk, and X-23. So glad Hasbro took out toe joints.

 

I'm cool with this Bishop. the Ball joint hips are a bit off putting and he does look a bit grittier but he's alright. Hulk Has been one of my favorites since I got him, Just wish he had come with an axe or something to go with the shield and armor.

 

Weapon X is suffereing from crazy Toy Biz face but decent for a one armed Wolvy. X-23 is mostly a good figure too but again the face is an issue. I'm tempted to grab the Wolverine or another current Hasbro version. Though do Hasbro's Lauras have the feet claws?

X-Force Laura, no.  Wolverine Laura, yes.

Wolverine Laura is an awesome figure with an awesome unmasked head.  I actually prefer it to the masked one.

 

My AoA Weapon X variant suffers from the claws curving inexplicably into a C-shape.  I boiled and straightened them years ago, but they eventually returned to the warped state.  That reminds me, I need to fix it again.

So the rest of the X-Men Caliban wave other than Jubes came in today. Not sure I'll keep everyone as I have no attachment to the Reavers and have never had much of a want for Wolverine in his skivies. But Beast is just awesome.

 

But taking out Skullbuster His Cyborg arm popped out and continues to do so easily. Considering the character could it be intentional?
