Not sure CTV was arguing about the price hike, just discussing the history of the line.

When they started actually going back and filling out the missing players, especially the villains, they got me to collect live action stuff that I used to always skip 100% of the time, or sell off if I had to get it for a BAF piece, so I don’t mind them mixing together so much, but I will say that I’m a lot more picky when it comes to live action characters, whereas I’m all in with comic characters. I know some people really want every minor character from the live action shows and movies, but just speaking for me personally, if they go too deep into that rabbit hole I will just start skipping people unless a BAF requires it. I don’t need the guy who might be Falcon one day but for right now is just military guy, I’d take Batroc who at least is a repeat offender and likely “final form” over that.

The only time it really starts to irritate me is when there are characters who have a large role in the movies that are very underrepresented in comic form, the GOTG have a shockingly low number of comic-based characters of the team and their supporting cast when you consider how big a role they have played in live action. I don’t want to see the movies end or anything, but I feel like that’s what it’s going to take to finally get them flushed out more.

Yes, this. If we talk about rising oil prices and why they are what they are, we'll end up in the Soapbox. :lol:

I can't wait to find out the comic figures in this wave. Here's hoping for a classic Valkyrie to put in my Defenders display. If we get a comic Thor, I want the 90's Masterson Thor.Image

Remember the ToyBiz era when they were like, $8.99?
Remember when oil was dirt cheap?

When I think of scaling way back on movie figures and only buying characters that fill holes in the Infinity Saga, I think ahead to Love and Thunder and realize I'm probably going to be down for most, if not all offerings.
