I doubt Jesse Falcon is telling anyone to make DST toys compatible with Hasbro ones. Certainly, DST has watched sales trends of their product to see if oversized figures sell better than normal sized ones. Maybe Jesse shares info between the lines, so they're not making the same exact figure at the same exact time. Large characters in the larger MS line will sometimes just naturally work with ML as well. Just the nature of oversized characters. They just happen to work with both lines.

I do agree with Jimbles about the ball-knees on Silver Centurion Iron Man. They're terrible. Swivel/hinge elbows and knees tend to give less than 90 degree bend. Not a fan of them in general (they work fine on Mega Construx and some GI Joe figures). I'd much prefer straight hinge knees. Especially when SC IM also has swivel thighs, shins, and ankles. Swivels at the knees are just redundant and unnecessary and in SC IM's case work against the knee hinge itself. So yeah...no more hinge/swivel knees please.

yeah, not implying he orders them to make something (or a certain way) at all. But he does have his hand in most every marvel line. And does like the synergy.

the hasbro team also said Titanium Man was originally in the running as a BAF for the ironman wave, but they were informed by Jesse that MS was making one. (it's theorized Crimson Dynamo and spymaster were originally in the ironman wave too and Ursa and Darkstar were in the widow wave but things were swapped for one reason or another, likely a timing issue with product if true) But it's quite possible jesse and the hasbro teamed timed the ironman wave to coincide with what was suppose to be Titanium mans original release too (rather than the other way around)

Jesse clearly has a hand in all that.

Yet Hasbro and Diamond both had Silver Centurion Iron Man in development at the same time. And Human Torch will be out in both lines at the same time.

Yeah, but sc was an exclusive and at this point has been out about a year.

I dont make the rules, I just listen to what the teams say. Its likely A-listers like the torch dont really matter, obviously both companies also do movie tie ins at about the same time as well with no issue.

But the hasbro team did say titanium man was going to be the baf, but decided against it due to marvel select.

So its quite possible they don't want to compete on the lesser known characters

I dont make the rules, I just listen to what's told Image

Silver centurion being announced almost at the same time the marvel legends one...i tought it was planned at that time,but is just coincidence

But Watcher being re-released in the same year that what if came is unbeliveable that is not intentional(or is it?)

I know Select-only collectors resent it, but these scalably-large characters MUST be a huge win for Diamond since Legends collectors buy them as well.
Nobody resents you (or anyone else) for supplementing Legends with Selects.

It's been already mentioned a few times before. The only timere there's some resentment from us towards Legends collectors is when you guys come into this thread to wishlist future ML waves around a Select figure or someone asks DST to ONLY make big fig characters, treating MS as a ML sub line.
It’s the same thing. Just gives those a convenient argument when needed.

Who cares if the figures sell.

I'm probably in the minority on this, but I'm kinda hoping they're doing a modern Apocalypse. I wouldn't expect him to be in the tux or his military looking outfit from X of Swords, but something that would go well with the House of X Marvel Legends would be nice.

I wouldn't be opposed to that, but outside of Hawkguy and the GotG, have they done any modern figures?
