ADC has there coverage up

I'll comment more tomorrow I guess but most of it looks swell

I'll be getting Red Skull, Colossus, Nick Fury, Mister Fantastic and Silver Surfer/Howard

Sabertooth and Blade do absolutely nothing for me

I also like the looks and possible direction of the Classic X-Men line

Classic Hulk...meh, I would have thought Classic Avengers would have been a better idea.  Just trying to cash in on the Hulk money train I guess ??? (idiots)

Scott, random thoughts:

I'm there with you on Hulk.  What are they going to do?  Banner Unleashed?  Oh wait, that's called the Hulk ::)  A grey Hulk would be cool.  Hey, maybe a She-Hulk (drool).

Red Skull?  Chase piece or not?  If so, he could be mighty pricy yes?  I want him too, he is quite the classic evil villain.  Pretty dumb to have the Cap and then make his arch enemy impossible to get.

No blade for me either.

When I saw my new dancing icon on another forum, I knew it would compliment Spidey, so I just had to have it  ;) Plus I knew you guys would get a kick out of it.

On to ML.  Awesome.  I've been jonesing for these pics for awhile now and they don't disappoint.

Colossus is nothing short of amazing and will be the very first one I pick up.  

I like all the rest, with Sabretooth and MF probably being my least favorite, although still good.  Where are MF's stretchy hands?

I'll pick and choose the HC and XMC figs, like I do with SMC.  Definitely getting Archangel (although his face looks a little weird) and Cyclops.  I'll decide on the Wolverines when I see them.  Abomination is a definite and will probably pick up the intelligent Hulk (the one with glasses)  I didn't see his feet but hopefully he comes with his pink bunny slippers that he was wearing when he carried that gun in the comic.

More news from Comic Con

From AFT...


Firstly, I have to offer a HUGE apology to everyone,
especially Rob, Bobbi and Julius. I screwed up badly
yesterday. Here's some bad, hreatbreaking news, gang:
Remember that thrid series of X-Men 2 movie figures
that I reported? Well, I talked to Jesse today, and
sadly, they *ain't* happening after all. The figures
were manufactured, but retailers lost interest in the
line and the plans were scrapped. They won't be
released.

I'm sorry, folks. Mea Culpa. I saw that name card in
the display case that listed the figures and I assumed
that when Jesse arrived, he'd have them along with the
new Hulk X-Men and Marvel Legends assortments. Well,
you know what they say happens when you ASS-U-ME. I
am very, very sorry. I'm as disappointed as you are.
I wanted a Lady Deathstrike figure so bad my teeth
hurt. The worst part is, there's one made that we'll
never see. :-(

Well, on to the *good* news:

There will be at least *one* Punisher movie figure,
and it will probably appear in Marvel Legends just
like Blade 2 and the Ben Affleck Daredevil. That will
more than likely be the only Punisher movie figure we
see.

Marvel Legends will be bumped up to three assortments
a year. Woo-Hoo! Jesse will have two waves of Marvel
Legends on display at next year's Toy Fair, along with
two new boxed sets. Let the speculation begin.

Invisible Woman *will* happen.

Silver Surfer's base *is* wall mountable! It tilts on
a 360 degree angle. Jesse isn't sure yet if Mr.
Fantastic's base will be wall mountable or not.

Doop will be the sidekick in Series 6. Jesse wouldn't
tell me which figure he'll be packaged in.

Roto, large scaled figures for Marvel Legends?
Possibly. In fact, one's been manufactured.

Jesse says that Red Skull will be easier to find then
Gold Iron Man. He doesn't like the idea of chase
figures, either, but this is the only way we'll get a
Red Skull. He *is* a Nazi, you know. The retailers
are the ones who keep requesting chase figures, and as
long as they're the ones doing the ordering, we're
going to continue to get'em.

WEll, that's good news about Red Skull anyway.  I managed to find four Gold Ironman, so the odds should be ok.  Pity they aren't offering up comments regarding no mask Wolverine and Goliath.  

Also interesting that the retailers want the chase figures.  Up north, most of our retailers hate the McFarlane shoppers with absolute passion.  They do not like the phone calls, the people waiting outside the door at opening, etc.  Perhaps by retailers they are referring to management.

No X2 Magneto?   :(

I was kind of worried about that, though.  The ML stuff looks good.  I'll only get the Surfer and Colossus, though.
