A good checklist is almost always a work in progress and while we were away the last couple weeks we missed a fair share of updates. As IAT returns to its normal schedule, I need to spend some time getting our various checklists in order. I've started with MOTU Classics, Ghostbusters, & Captain America.
New pages for the Captain America & Thor movie lines have been added to the Marvel Universe Resource. The Iron Man 2 and Spider-Man pages have been updated with the latest wave information. And a Two-Packs section has been added to the 2011 page. Images have been added for most updates.
This suggestion comes to us from IAT reader, Adrian. So a quick thank you to him and an encouragement to anyone else with a character for this article! We will read them, and though we can't do everyone, we do appreciate hearing your ideas! If you have a suggestion for the Most Requested feature, drop us a line and let us know!
If you've been around the blog long enough, you might know I really like alternate superhero costumes. I don't know what it is, but there's just something about a superhero switching up his costume now and again that appeals to me.
I might have a confession. I might, this is hard to admit, but I might prefer 3 3/4" scale to 6" scale. Don't get me wrong. I love my DCUCs, MOTUCs, GBCs, MLs, DCDs, FanExs, etc, etc. Most of my collection is 6" because that scale is usually executed better than its smaller counterpart. I appreciate that. I also prefer loads of articulation. But there are exceptions when a smaller line does well with sculpt and articulation. Mezco's Hellboy 3 3/4" line. 25th Joes. Marvel Universe. (Maybe some upcoming DCIH?). And when I get a well-done figure in this smaller scale? I'm ecstatic. It makes me wish I had other stuff in this size (my Hellboy really needs some 3 3/4" Ghostbusters, for example).
