I like the Hulk figures that are currently out. A guy from the mcfarlane board picked me up Mr. Fixit, my personal favorite. It's tough to make the call on some of these figures when they never show in Canada and I can't examine them in three dimensions. I opted to get one, just in case. I would like to get Absorbing Man and Abomination, but I'll have to wait and see if they come north at some point. Nice stuff.
Thanks for the pic of the Lizard, Scott. Not great, but not bad though I think I would have grabbed it, had I seen it. Necessary for the collection of spidey baddies.
I do have a Carnage, but I have yet to open it. Carnage was about the same time as I got out of comics and it signalled an end to the spiderman books I liked. Carnage was way too violent for my tastes, but being linked to the black costume/venom made me want it. I dislike the hands on the figure and the accessories do little for me. That said, I'm happy I have it for the sake of being relatively complete with the villains.
I passed on Kraven too, but mostly because the paint apps on the few I saw sucked quite badly. I'm hoping they did some upgrading for the S6 version. While I didn't much care for Carnage, there was a great cross over between the then three spiderman titles (Amazing, Web of and Spectacular) that had the death of Kraven. Excellent books so I do desperatly need to own a figure of him.
Morbius I never commented on, but have passed on this figure so many times. The scale just doesn't seem right to me. And possibly the pose in the package is off-putting. I really do think they need to be in the clamshells to sell better. The cheaper packaging certainly hasn't translated into cheaper pricing, at least up here.
Scott's right, the movie JJJ is probably quite adequate. The rendering isn't so different from the comic version. In fact, I think this one strayed from the movie to the comic more than they planned.
It's amazing we don't have a Kingpin figure yet. Needs to be huge though and would work so well with DD and spidey.
Sandman was trapped with one of the spidey figs, in a base, like one of the lizard versions. Not great, but technically it exists in one sense. I'd like to see that, but now that you've mentioned Mysterio and Vulture, they desperately need to be made.
There's almost enough there for a S6 v2.0 to be made. They could chuck in a re-deco'd parachute spidey with Carnage, Mysterio, Vulture, Sandman, a new Lizard and the Kingpin. Now that I would buy (too).
