That would be awesome. Hopefully by Mayshelf. I love his sculpts.lefthook wrote:Just let the big fig be the Crimson Dynamo we need!

15 years ago, NO ONE was producing figures that were nailing it on ALL levels: sculpt, paint, articulation, value. Sure, I'd love to have gotten figures of Wolverine, Cyclops, Captain America, Iron Man, Hawkeye, Black Widow, Beast, Storm, Nightcrawler, Thor, Black Cat, Elektra, Daredevil, Punisher, Ghost Rider, Silver Surfer, Thing, among others, all at the current level. But the line has evolved, technology has evolved, etc.
Yeah... yeah. I mean... yeah. Yes. Those hips marred some otherwise stellar releases. The knees are just really grinding my gears now, though. Two back to back purchases of mine were lessened because of those knees and I'm just left wondering why they're even over-engineering this stuff.
Pretty sure most big Selects don't have those knees. Or DCUC hips. Just look at Hulk who was released the same year as TM.jimbles wrote: ↑Thu Oct 21, 2021 1:38 amApocalypse is gonna be off the rails bonkers amazing, I'm sure. I can already envision the pearly metallic blue paint job.
Just a shame that, as another big character's debut is approaching, DST is no doubt gonna remain dead set on the swivel hinge knee engineering and bring down another design a few pegs for no reason. It's not been a great joint and has held back some of their best figures from being flawless. My Titanium Man has spinning meat legs and poor stability because of it, my Silver Centurion has barely 90 degree knee range because of it... and for what? Neither character benefited from the engineering. Both times, the joint was redundant because the figure already had ankle and thigh swivels. They get set in these bad engineering directions and just keep doubling down for years and years despite people telling them to do otherwise.
I know, I know... "wait and see, maybe they won't."
It's a mix. Hulkbuster and the previously mentioned TM have the knees. Several Hulks (I think all MCU ones except nano gauntlet? I don't own Ragnarok) have the DCUC hips, same as Destroyer. And modern Thanos, Beast, Venom, and Carnage, though their bigness could be debatable. Seems like release for release, odds are the big(ger) characters have at least one of those afflictions these past few years. In the line's entire 20 year run, probably not most. But in modern times, it's definitely most.
