  1. Yeah, how dare some of us expect quality and minifigures that look like they weren’t designed in the 80s. This mindset is what allows lego to profit off of putting in the bare minimum amount of effort. A Big Mac is technically food but don’t compare it to a steak.
  2. Can we FINALLY get some leg printing?!
  3. The boot design is a lot different between the two characters. The complaints people have are that LEGO was making figures with more detail in 2002. They skimped hard on this set... which appears to be the new standard, unfortunately. We seem to be on a steady downward trend. First, extras like arm printing and dual-molding went away. Then, leg printing (which has been around FOREVER) got cut. Now they’re dumbing down the torso prints. It’s perfectly understandable to be frustrated how screwed over this theme keeps getting.
  4. For the first time in a long while, the build is better than the minifigures. Still, it almost looks like Lego is toning down detail on the torso printing too. God these figures are bare.
  5. Really a shame we couldn’t get a Kree instead of a THIRD Nick Fury. Probably never get made now.
  6. Saw the new Spider-Man sets at Target in Central, Pennsylvania. First time since the launch of the Marvel line that I’ve passed on any set but ... these are just bad. Three new minifigures (one of which is a civilian) out of sixteen, a continued decrease in printing, and more ugly, nonsensical “spider-vehicles”. What an absolute waste of the license.
  7. As infuriating as it is, there’s probably a lot of truth in this.
  8. This lack of detailing is really starting to become offensive. I can’t believe how much more detailed the Overwatch line is than the last year+ of Marvel. It’s like someone at LEGO really hates the Superheroes Theme. :(
  9. Edit: Comment removed to keep the peace.
  10. A potential Peter Parker minifigure.
  11. Hey mister condescension: You know, it’s almost like this is a forum for adult collectors to have open discussion. If Lego can cater to all ages with the Star Wars theme, there’s no excuse to only target kids here. Especially when most comics fans are aging into adulthood. Kids are a lot smarter than they’re given credit for. We shouldn’t have to accept less (i.e. constant repeats, nonsense builds, no leg printing, etc.) because someone decided that kids won’t care about that sort of thing and will be happy with whatever they get.
  12. You’re entitled to your opinion but i’ll never be able to understand this viewpoint. You only need ONE of each character to display. If the new one is better, the old one becomes pointless. If the the new one is worse or the same then it’s pointless. Why on Earth would you want to keep spending money on the same thing over and over again!? Why!? It’s like wanting a band to rerelease the same album over and over again. Or watching the same movie a hundred times. It might be a great movie, but you’ve seen it enough. How are you not getting tired of the same songs or the same scenes!?!? This just doesn’t make logical sense. You already have a perfectly good vulture. Why do you need another one?!
  13. Yep, great. Just what we need - yet ANOTHER pointless variant. Can’t wait to display my “guy in normal street clothes” minifigure on my superhero shelf...
  14. Spider-Man 2099 is an alternate future (read: not-in-continuity) character with several short-lived mini-series. Spider-Gwen debuted in 2014 as an alternate reality Spider-Man and was only kept around due to a small cult-following. Both are ABSOLUTELY D-List characters. C-List at best. And we’ve already had a perfectly acceptable Miles Morales (AND Carnage) in a better set (the SAME set) $8 cheaper less than 3 years ago. The point remains the same - ENOUGH WITH THE UNNECESSARY VARIANTS AND REMAKES! There are 1000s of characters in the Marvel Universe and we keep getting the same tired rehashes. Everyone is entitled to their opinion but I cannot understand how people are doing backflips over the same tired thing being released over and over and over again! How many Spider-Mans do you need!? How many people are displaying multiple versions of the SAME character (Iron Man aside)? They want to flood us with variants, fine. At least give us new villains and good builds. How does it make any sense that they keep pumping out alternate reality versions of Spider-Man and suit variants when we’re missing more than half of his CLASSIC villains!? We could get Mysterio, Lizard, Kingpin, Tombstone, or any number of non-Spider-Man villains and heroes that are a hell of a lot more important than Spider-Man 2099 and Spider-Gwen. But the repeats are the biggest issue. New is ALWAYS better than a variant. ALWAYS.
