I mean - I know what you're saying because I just posted about that specific Ultron not that long ago about how it was already a disappointing figure, and the leg snapped off out of the package - so I set it on fire.Jax wrote: ↑Mon Jul 26, 2021 7:06 pm
But to say we are setting expectations low for the line in general? This Galactus may end up being what we hold up as one of the best Legends of all time in a few decades. In hindsight, the golden age of Toy Biz was actually just a lot of early hits and then some big misses. We are now in stride for the line and still breaking new and exciting ground (Sentinel and Galactus are prime examples.)
Expectations around the little extras we are going to get? We got spoiled by the Sentinel because the goal was crushed so easily. The Marvel Fandom was doing things that even Star Wars was struggling to do. That's really huge. If we get zero extras with Galactus, that would definitely decrease the overall value of what we are getting, but I've always seen this as a $500 (CDN) figure. If we get a few extra figures, that would be nice and would make it feel like a discount, in a way.
I'm thinking that even if a tier isn't unlocked Hasbro will still toss in Surfer for those who couldn't get it before (Ryan has pointedly shown on Twitter the secondary market value of the figure in the last 48 hrs). I'm thinking if they hit 14K they will still be thrilled.
