I’m reluctantly keeping my pre-order for this. I wish Bullseye and Elektra had their Classic looks, then I’d feel like I was getting my money’s worth.
Of course they’ll announce a classic red Elektra as soon as I receive this set.

I decided to cancel after all, along with cartoon Cyclops. I only wanted DD anyway and I'm sure I can get Cyclops later, maybe even at the Disney Store with a discount.

I canceled, and I'm proud of myself for showing some willpower, for once, when it comes to this hobby.

Hoping we don't have to wait years to see a single release of this same Daredevil, but with better, more classic paint applications (or, better yet, a Mafex classic Daredevil) and this same Elektra, but in her classic red.

I went ahead and canceled, too. Kojigritton seems to have his ear to the ground on MAFEX releases, so I'll wait for that.

Ultimately $90 is just too much for a single ML figure. The Elektra is fantastic, and I'll gladly grab it in red, but I don't want Bullseye at all. And I'd probably upgrade the DD within two years anyway.

So tell me again how you don't need this set? What a shot!

I would *like* to get this set. However, I just bought a house and it probably isn't financially prudent for me to do so.

An Elektra with decent articulation has been such a long time coming, though.

I won’t risk missing out on big-hair Elektra - that head might not make it into the inevitable red release and it’s too good to miss.

I appreciate putting a different Bullseye in this set for those who (like me) already have the Man-Thing wave one, but I think the set would feel more cohesive if he was just in his classic look. I’m not mad about a unique comic costume but blue torso Bullseye wasn’t on my radar, and plenty of people want another shot at the classic. Of course I would have preferred a totally new character but that’s neither here nor there.

Oof. With this market, I hope financing rates didn't kill ya. Congrats on the house, though!

I've seen this making the rounds and that Elektra is posed so awkwardly. I really hope they didn't sacrifice a really dynamic shot of her just for the upskirt element.

But now you have more room to display the set.

It's funny, cuz the angle makes it very noticeable that there was some paint swapping/bleed from her legs to her costume. Lady got her butt juice all up on her underwear.

I'm sure Matt noticed.

Elektra's butt is not the first place my eye went, but thanks for pointing it out.

Same. I really hadn't even thought of that. The work of balancing that blew my mind.

I can't wait to get this set. I'm going to attempt to use a black Gundam paint marker to make glove and boot lines. Still trying to figure out something for the DD on his chest. I can't decide whether to use vinyl or just deco podge one on.

Things you shouldn't have to do on an $80+ set.

You're right. How dare Hasbro not outline things to his preferred aesthetic.
