I didn’t get 075 due to the wash (it seemed excessive, for my taste).

The painting of this new one makes it the clear (pun intended) winner for me. I’m glad I preordered this one.

Looks like my ideal Spider-Man. As good as 075 is, I wasn't a fan of the wash/coloring on it. The lack of an unmasked head is disappointing, but I rarely display characters unmasked.

I have the original 075 release and I preordered this one. I like both for different reasons. Does this not come with a Peter headsculpt? If so, I'm glad I am keeping my 075.

I have debated on whether to cancel this one since I am generally happy with the look of 075. Still, both have their strengths.

So I checked my Mafex preorders on AmiAmi for December and it's showing 11 figures still with December release dates, including Marvel, DC, and The Boys re-issues. There's no way that many figures ships, right?

My prediction is that they will all ship, and they will be delivered by flying pigs. :oops:

I saw BBtS has comic magneto on the front page. So wondering if he'll drop this month and not get pushed back.

I don't expect it until 2023, but Magneto is my single most anticipated figure at this point. I am a little biased since he's my favorite character.. but still, the figure looks great to me.

I'm almost tempted to order a second one as well. Just in case, so I have a backup. But MAFEX seems to be doing pretty good with their QC issues lately.

I 2nd this. Classic Mags and Nightwing are the two I'm most pumped for at the moment, but I'm not expecting to have either in hand until at least March. That's why I caved and picked up the AoA Mags when he got reissued a couple weeks back...bought him as a placeholder until the Classic Mags comes out since I think it might be a while still unfortunately...

I do like the darker, more maroon red color on the AoA Magneto a lot. I was thinking of getting it and then swapping the capes to use that as my 616 Magneto. The darker red may not be comic accurate, but I think it looks better in toy form. But then the helmet wouldn't be the same shade of red, so I talked myself out of it.

Though I guess I could use the unmasked head.. Ok now I might talk myself back into it.

I went ahead and ordered Jean off of BBTS. I tried to convince myself to to buy the animated ML version during the Pulse sale, but I just couldn’t do it. The Mafex one doesn’t look perfect, but it’s much better.

I'm still on the shelf about her, tbh. But I still feel like if I wait, they'll announce a Phoenix or X-Factor version I'll like more.

Just checked my HLJ Magneto pre-order. It was still on track for December just a few days ago. It's apparently been pushed back to April now...
