Not sure if this was mentioned before, but the Ohms in the Jules set are misassembled. Easy to see when compared to the back of the box. The stand alone torso has it's tail spread out which makes it harder to fit in the backpack. It also has the shoulder areas extended from the body so the folded wings don't fit up against the body. To fix it you'd have to swap the legs with the wrench top version, which are connected to a separate belly piece, which is unfortunately seriously glued on.

As for the soft rubber shirt, beyond the symbol easily rubbing off, I'm sure everyone is concerned with it deteriorating after a few years. Unfortunately, there is no tattoo print under it.

Does Jules reuse Marvel Legends arms?

I know the rest of the line is all new original work, but looking at the single jointed arm, it looks like an ML arm.

Idle curiosity.

I guess we would have heard about it already if it were happening this season.

Yet, does anyone think that Hasbro will do Crackshot and the other Christmas figures?

Maybe next Christmas, but not this one. I could see it being a store exclusive.

Why did Hasbro have to jump out with The Foundation so early? If they waited we could've gotten him with his harvesting tool and possibly alternate faces and a Dwayne Johnson head.

So they can re-release the figure. That is what the cynic in me says.

But as the person who hasn't bought the figure yet. I hope they do release it with alternate heads just not the associated price increase.

Yeah, they'll probably ditch the glider if that happens. Wonder would a normal release include the harvesting tool and gun though.

And now he has hands and back popoman and a stand and things he probably came with anyway, but now are revealed like a treat in my email.

No gun, though.

This is just reopening orders for the old figure — Hasbro likely had no idea The Rock was who was under the helmet and the figure is already in production so too late to add it now.

It’s similar to what we see with inaccurate MCU figures. Epic probably never let them know to make sure it didn’t leak ahead of time. I give Hasbro a pass for not having the head.

No gun though, that’s pretty dumb.
