Most of them have more than three versions released. There were multiple Rhinos and Doc Ocks released in 5-inch scale. Then there were the Spider-Man Classics Rhinos and Doc Ocks in 6-inch scale(that first Doc Ock being a particularly bad figure), and then the Marvel Legends Ock and Rhino later on. Green Goblin I had at least one 5-inch figure of, not sure if there were more, then the Ramos 6-inch Goblin, then the Sinister Six box set version, then the ML version(two actually, with different heads). And Venom had lots of 5-inch scale figures, then the Classics transforming Venom with the weird mouth, then the blue-ish one that came with the ooze, then the Sabretooth retool, then the one that came out in the Man Wolf wave. And Spidey himself has been made lots of times, but we know that.

So were all those remakes lame? Should Toybiz have just made one Venom and left it at that?

Whether you like the figures or not isn't my point, a point which I thought was fairly easy to understand:

If Toy Biz had just stuck to making new figures in one scale rather than remaking old figures in a new scale, we wouldn't have had Marvel Legends. That's all I was trying to say.

Dude the worst was stealth venom!

There is no excuse for Venom not bending at the knew...wtf. The Doc Ock looks really cool but the small tenticles look odd. Hopefully the will give Venom articulated knees. I am going to get the Showdown figure anyway just because it's awesome and if this Venom sucks at least I have that to use.

Da Top Cat - 2009-07-26 @ 4:14 am

No prob. And to erikyurk, if you just meant you didn't like the way the figures look, I apologize for getting on you. I just took it as the kind of attack on the concept/scale of MU that's been done to death here.

And yes, that Doc Ock sucks and if Venom has no knee articulation(and I'll be surprised if he doesn't), he'll suck too. Which would be a shame because I love that headsculpt.

I think I get it now. But I can be pretty dense.

You're talking about different figures of the same character. Sculpted differently, etc. My understanding was that this was some kind of carbon-copy duplication of already released figures. See, I knew it was some bit of 90s toy knowledge I lacked.

Then there were the Spider-Man Classics Rhinos and Doc Ocks in 6-inch scale(that first Doc Ock being a particularly bad figure), and then the Marvel Legends Ock and Rhino later on.

"The person I was quoting says these are "lame" because they've been done before in a different scale(that being 6-inch). So by that person's logic, those 6-inch figures were lame too because the characters had been done before in 5-inch scale.

Do I need to explain it further?"

Yeah, you do. Are there three different versions of the figures now? 4-inch, 5-inch and 6-inch? All just re-sizes, with some 5-inch figures being the originals? Is that what you are saying?

If they are just re-sizing the figures they sold people before, well, that does seem lame enough to me. To say nothing of the fact that just looking at the photos of these new Spiderman figures I can tell you flat-out that they look lame. Just look at the underwater Spider-gimp-suit., or the Doctor Octopus whose tentacles boast no more reach than his actual arms. Or try the Venom that has no leg-joints by which to crouch (especially lame, seeing as Venom predominantly crouches his was through most comics he's in). Or the Rhino that looks to be outfitted by Tony Stark. Or just the cheerless parade of duplicate Spidermans; one after another, accessories the only important change between figures.

I interpreted the previous poster's statement as meaning that he already had those toys in a different size, and so it was lame for Hasbro to release them again, with lame being taken to mean redundant and thereby worthless to him. Is there something that objectionable about this logic? Am I missing vital 90s toy-collecting knowledge or something here?

shokker - 2009-07-26 @ 1:53 am

great, venom and goblin are coming in the first wave allready? then just rhino and ock and i am done.

Da Top Cat - 2009-07-26 @ 1:40 am
I actually don't understand the logic behind the crank-yanking immediately above. And I don't feel especially stupid today.

Are you talking about my post? I'll try to walk you through it.

The person I was quoting says these are "lame" because they've been done before in a different scale(that being 6-inch). So by that person's logic, those 6-inch figures were lame too because the characters had been done before in 5-inch scale.

Do I need to explain it further?

Everything looks greatly improved with the new lines and the MU for 2010 over the current MU and the XMO:W line. I just hope they've fixed the problems with the poor leg articulation on the movie lines.
