Yeah, I don’t get why they are so upset about this. The amount that this will cut into their profits is minimal at best?
For me it was also easy to let go of Thanos as I wasn’t a huge fan of his movie design, it’s not very menacing nor has much ‘presence.’ He’s a good villain yes, and I throughly enjoyed IW/EG, but he’s just not what I envision Thanos looking like in the end.My rationale behind it was... do I really need a villain for my Avengers? I don’t collect Marvel villains. I only have the Dark World Loki and Days of Future Past Magneto.
Granted, Thanos is THE villain. He wouldn’t be displayed with my core Avengers team though and I wasn’t impressed with how limited the articulation was on the Infinity War Thor, which was the intended companion for him on the shelf.
At the end of the day, I had to ditch them both. Gandalf and Star Wars figures are going to hit me hard soon. I lost the deposit on Thor, but got the Thanos deposit overturned. Why there’s a deposit on Thanos at all is beyond me. Thor as well. They’re going to sell, you dimwits.
In fact, the only Hot Toys that don’t seem to be selling that well are the Star Wars figures which don’t fall into the PT or OT categories.
Man Rankin Bass figures would be sweet. They’d really be some grotesque sculpts to get the animation style down though lol, and I wonder if they’d be able to get that drawn look down.I’m sure this crown Gandalf is going to be far more enjoyable than Thanos and iw Thor....I mean the original Gandalf release I enjoy more than iw Thor Andy this crown release looks even better. I’m with you BP3k I hope Galadriel is next also I’m still hoping somehow I get rankin bass lotr figures one day, I know I am the minority on that one
