I know some folks really, really like diorama sets, but I really don't see something like that selling as well as a character does. I can't think of any line at this scale (or close to this scale) where a building would sell as well as a character. I think that the people who want it would be *really* excited about it, but I think a lot more people are passing on the Danger Room than passed on the sentinels.sepster wrote: ↑Fri Jun 11, 2021 2:24 pm
I don't think Hasbro could replicate that scenario with a character. It may be possible with something modular, like the Danger Room. The main piece could be configured to build as large a danger room as you like (think the big box below) and then the tiers could add additional rooms like the control room, ready room, etc.
Think about something like MotU; lots of folks who are really avid MotU fans skipped Castle Greyskull, and Greyskull is the single most important location in MotU lore and appears in the title sequence and on the cover of almost all advertising for all the shows and books. The Danger Room hasn't existed in decades and only matters to X-Men fans, not even to the broader Marvel universe.
The problem with buildings, for me, is the space. Taking up vertical space, like a sentinel, is less of a problem than taking up horizontal space. I love the X-Men, but there's just no way I'm getting a Danger Room. It'd take up way too much space on already crowded shelves.
Not saying it's not a viable project; I think there's definitely interest in it, but anywhere near the interest in sentinels and Galactus? I'm very skeptical.
