Thing's extra toes really annoy me. Yeah, it's not particularly noticeable, but I know it's there now. With brown Wolverine's boots, the omission of black paint is maybe an oversight, maybe a cost cutting measure, but also easy to fix. With the Thing, this is blatant carelessness for the source material, difficult to fix, and highly unlikely to get a second chance.

I received the Thing from Amazon yesterday and the card was damaged so I opened it. I’m still salty about the five toes on each foot but it’s not that noticeable in person. I don’t like his head sculpt though. I’m usually very particular about Thing head sculpts. My favs so far have been the ML2 head, which no one has beat. My fav Hasbro Thing head is the latest, the open mouth sculpt. I don’t mind the teeth gritted sculpt. I rank the modern black costume behind those, and the Walgreens heads come in last. This one.. something is very weird to me about this one. Like he has too much chin, but no visible lip/mouth. I think his lip should protrude further than his chin.

I got my Thing from Amazon yesterday and 2 Green Goblins today. All 3 cards were in perfect shape! I opened a Goblin and he might be my favorite figure in this line yet. Besides not having a pumpkin bomb, I can't think of anything I would change on the figure.

Green Goblin came from Amazon a few days ago. The card was unpunched but beat to hell.

Thing arrived today, so it was finally time to open the rest of the Fantastic Four.
Absolutely wonderful pictures! 8)

Any word yet on whether the next wave after the current one will be cardboard only packaging?

Black Widow arrived today. Card waa totally intact. Figure itself looks great considering its the same female buck reused. Wrist bracelets are actually molded to the foreams and not separate pieces. Paint apps are great, small gaps on each side of the painted on belt where the seems are. Only thing I don't get is the huge crossbow accessory as she can't really hold it properly unless pointrd down. But I believe there's some comic reference somewhere for her using a crossbow. All in all great figure glad to add it to the collection.

Thor has finally shipped. Should be here tomorrow. Hopefully in good condition. Thus us the one I've been wanting the most from this wave.
