I guess I should clarify a bit. My grandest frustration comes from Red Skull. For big fans of Captain America that is a huge slap in the face. Had it been a variation on another figure in the line, or maybe there were two versions of Red Skull, it would be better. That way at least people who wanted a core red skull to fight with their cap wouldn't be out. Gold Ironman, Doombot, no mask Wolvie, even the upcomoing vision and Phoenix are at least just alternates to regular figs.
I'm just souring on the chase figure aspect. Pretty hypocritical for a guy with all the goalie chase from McFarlane, save one; all the ML chase, save one; Indy Kubrick. It's just, I dunno, frustrating. I guess it's compounded by being up north too, where nothing ever shows up, but that's my old gripe everyone here is sick of hearing. sorry.
Star Wars/Hasbro are testing the waters with that clone IMO. Not good news as fan boys (like me
) and scalpers alike will be fighting over it, which gives the impression it's a good thing. Beware 3 3/4 chase pieces that are not accidental.
