Damn.., Hyde (like a lot of folks) has been a big want for decades.., I was still in despite preferring a classic look in magnitudes but.. no way can I justify the hassle of trying to get just him as he is.. real shame. He looks good, just not "my" Hyde which, wouldn't be a problem and I'd happily have him but I can't justify a wave or anything more than £30 for that. Conversely I had zero interest in that Iron Man as I thought the eye slits were painted blue, seeing he's just a quick tweak away from being a perfect classic Iron Man, I'll save myself a hundred odd and buy him instead :lol: liking the MCU designs though

In every depiction of Hyde in a basic Google image search, he is always wearing the “Jack the Ripper” cape and never wearing a derby (this is a very rare depiction of the character). This actually looks more like Alan Moore’s Mr. Hyde from the League of Extraordinary Gentleman.

I wonder if one of there is a Victorian cloak that will fit this figure and if a Hulk head with painted on sideburns might be substituted for better effect.

I like him and will try to make him work, I guess.

More I see of Hyde, the less I think I want of him. I’m now thinking just arms and legs (to save on paint rub at the joints). I’ll try to pick up a Fixit torso on the cheap, assuming joints are compatible, as the closed jacked is better for classic Hyde. Scratch sculpt a head and find a cape substitute from somewhere.

In the unlikely event of this being replaced by a single pack down the line, I’d rather not put too much time and money into it!

His ugly ass is perfect for the Thunderbolts team. His inclusion in this wave still royally pisses me off. He's a must-have for me, but I think I've got a guy to work out the pieces I need.

A classic (MOE) Hyde is still a must-have as well, so we still need that version.

It looks like they went with a look for Hyde that might read to a casual consumer as closer to the general idea of “Mr. Hyde” the literary/movie/pop-culture character, as opposed to the specific Marvel version. Maybe to court someone who’d think “I’ve never heard of this Shang-Chi dude, but hey Iron Man and . . . Mr. Hyde? Wow, OK!”
While I would prefer the classic comic version, this sort-of raises my hopes for other Marvel “classic monster” characters in mass-media-aligned looks.
Which is to say: get me my Tomb of Dracula!!

Here's some better pics I took. The torso of the figure is hollow, so he's not nearly as heavy as he looks.

This is the red/yellow color scheme Modular Iron Man should have.

I really wish this Iron Man came with a red/gold horned head to retrofit the 80th Anniv Iron Man.

Even taking into account it being a modern version, I don't care for that Hyde head.

I fully expect a retro card Modular with this color scheme to be released. It makes zero sense not to do it.

I full expect that we'll get another yellow classic Ironman on a retro card (this time with the black eyes and white circle), along with Modular in yellow as well.

Yeah, zero chance it won't be re-released, likely just as you described. Gotta pay for the all-new mold.

Damn those colors on Iron Man really pop! I beg of you Hasbro, please do something similar at some point with the upcoming Modular Iron Man.

Do you have any close pics of the movie figures as well? Thanks!
