Title: Might have to buy this one
Post by: Wringer on October 26, 2018, 01:01:33 PM
well...i've been out of the action figure game since Marvel moved from ToyBiz to Hasbro with a huge price jump ($8 to $20), downgraded quality and no comicbook insert.

I did pick up the new MoonKnight figure that was included in the "Homecoming" wave.  it is pretty sweet

today i see that with the upcoming Captain Marvel wave we will get....

Speaking of, Jimmy, my man, have you read the original Captain Marvel comics they have on MU? I see the have the first forty-six issues (and issue #53 ... for some reason? The Inhumans, I guess) and wondered if you have read them.

That is one series I can say that I have never read, or at least don't remember having ever read.

EDIT - Looking over the covers (isn't it amazing how you can remember covers of comics?) I take that back, I do remember having issues #24 and #29, but as I was about 7 or 8 when they hit, I don't remember anything about them. I don't think I as too into the "cosmic" side of Marvel back then. I must have, or probably have, started to read them and couldn't grasp it, I suppose.
 :-\
But I do remember having those two issues.

I just saw a picture for the Puma! I want that so much! Me, and Tokyo vigilante!

I haven't ignored your question. I just just have not been in a computer to answer. I didn't read any of the early Marvel issues where he's in his Kree uniform, but after that once he's all superhero red and blue then I went back and I found most of that stuff and back issues and trades and stuff to read.

agreed...a toy locked in a Box is no toy at all...feel the same way about CBG.  once it's slabbed it might as well be a poster or baseball card, the interior content is lost.
