The RAH USS Flagg was 7’ long. For 3.75” figures. So a Classified Flagg would be 10’+ long.

I get people are spitballing, but c’mon.
It was a joke, son. You missed it.

Helicopters Haslab! A different Marvel character gets their own branded helicopter at each tier.
Can’t wait for the absurdity of a Falcon helicopter. You just know they would do it.

I'm not even spitballing on Flagg just being goofy.

They could do rooms of the x mansion. I actually just reached out to this guy:
https://www.instagram.com/what_thehell/
about an x mansion. Going to be prohibitively expensive I am sure.

I am king of surprised they haven't done general release dioramas at this point.
LMK what you hear! I am very interested in something like this!

If you’re actually asking seriously, I think that was a typo, or spell correct messed up his post. I believe he meant to type “answer”, and it ended up being “an sow”. You got to watch spell correct. It sometimes gives some weird results.

I wasn't being serious, just kinda cheeky, but I legitimately couldn't figure out what he was saying. It never occurred to me that "an sow" was supposed to be one word. I thought "sow" was the sole culprit in the miscommunication. Thank you for making me feel smart again!

To get back on topic of the off topic discussion of the Joe Flagg, I'd love to see it just to see it but that thing would be ridiculous. I would imagine most people wouldn't even have the space to display it, and others would be divorced and split from their significant other.

I do wonder though would a cobra terror dome or remake of the Joe HQ be out of the realm of possibility. Cobra terror dome (was it "dome" or drome"? I forget) with a brainwave scanner in one of the rooms would be freaking crazy.

I've been wondering if a TerrorDrome is feasible if sold as wedges. Like, the design itself is 1/4 of the circle and you can back whatever amount depending on if it's going in the corner, flush against a wall, or a freestanding full circle.

i think hasbro should re-assess a few things
A) whether all ML haslabs need to run $350 or higher
B) whether all haslabs need electronic components
C) which "early bird" approaches work to help build the campaign rather than hurting it
D) what fans want and how to reduce the disparity between fan's perceived value of offerings versus hasbro's price

I feel like GI Joe vehicles and 3 3/4 star wars vehicles are promising as future Haslabs, but can't really see any potential legends projects i would consider a sure thing.

That said, they could probably re-offer either Galactus or a Sentinel as a pulse exclusive in a few years (with different colors, maybe different bonus figures., and likely sell a bunch more. by then they will probably be $500 or whatever but i think you would still get takers.

I was assuming he meant “scope of work.”
