I agree, I consider George Perez to be one of the best if not the definitive Avengers artist.

I don't think there's any question that Perez is the definitive Avengers artist. No one else really comes close. It's like when I think of X-Men, only John Byrne comes to mind followed by Jim Lee. Prior to Perez, Buscema's Avengers were awesome as well. Back then, some artists stayed for yrs on the same title, now it's a musical chairs type thing with a title going thru different artist on a 6 month to 1 yr basis.

Totally agree with you on the over sizing of certain characters such as Hulk, Juggs/Thanos/Thing/Hyde/Rhino. These characters are all large in a "massive" way but not hgt wise if ya know what I mean. I blame the artistic license that Marvel has allowed artists since the early 90s to get away with when drawing certain big characters such as Juggernaut who was originally listed at 6'10 but is now drawn close to 9ft tall. Hulk was always a 7 footer, now he's a 8 footer or sometimes even bigger. Rhino was just 6'5 but massive as is Thanos who is 6'7 but now skews in the 8ft range. The worst has been what Marvel has allowed artists to do with Ben, the Thing is 6ft 500lbs but now is drawn almost as big as the Hulk in the 7ft range. What made the Thing always appealing to me was that for his 6f t hgt, he always was the underdog vs the other heavy hitters of the MU such as the Hulk, Sasquatch, Gladiator, etc He might lose, but he'd go down fighting vs the big dogs. Now his figure, while great overall, is too tall & I'm gonna be hard pressed to try & customize it down to a more decent size. It's like todays Marvel writers/artists equate power with size, the stronger the character, the bigger he has to be. With that mindset, DC should make Superman an 8 footer as well instead of keeping him at 6'3. That's why I have never bought those Copiel Thor figs, they are too outta scale as are the Wrecking crew that they decided to turn into hulk size. The wrecking crew members range in hgt from 6'3 to 6'6, none are anywhere near 7ft tall. The Hyperion/Gladiator buck was the perfect buck for them with only Wrecker needing a new upper torso buck. That buck is perfect for characters in the 6-4- 6'5-6'6 range. Was surprised to not see a classic Doc Samson this yr as they can easily just have used that buck along with unworthy Thor head sculpt & Hyperion boots to do ol Leonard. Sorry to drone on but I'm a super scale Nazi & like proper scale size in my ML figs. Thor is 6'6, no other Avenger should be anywhere his hgt yet I keep seeing Ironman now listed as being 6'6 in armor. I've been collecting Marvel comics since the 80s & I have never seen Ironman drawn the same hgt as Thor. Stark does not magically gain 5-6 inches in hgt just due to donning the armor, sorry, his boots do not have 5 inch lifts in them. The suit is form fitting so he should maybe gain an inch or 2 of hgt from the boots & helmet space, nothing more That's why George Perez & John Byrne are my 2 favorite artists ever, they were sticklers for drawing every character at their proper hgt/scale. Way too many artists today just draw characters at whatever scale they feel like. These 3 pics I posted show how big IM & just about every other Avenger other than She-Hulk (6'7) should be when next to Thor

Honestly, I think it's too big for a Shadow King. Shadow King should have a smaller body which could be reused for a Doctor Faustus. That mold definitely doesn't work for a Mr. Hyde as the character is not that large, he's wide but not big. There's a trend where characters that are close to 7 feet tall but are wide in buff kind of a way get tend to be drawn as 8 to 9 feet tall. Modern writers are very guilty of this and as a consequence people tend to believe that character should be huge when in reality they are not. When we get a Mr.Hyde it should be a brand new sculpt.

Outstanding Kingpin figure, can't wait to see the 3rd head sculpt. The wave he comes in sucks so I'm just buying this by itself when it goes for sale. I can see Hasbro throwing on a Shadow King head sculpt on this & using it as the BAF of a future X-wave. As far as people saying it can be used for a classic Mr Hyde...no, Hyde isn't rotund, they might be able to use the arms & lower waist but the torso would have to be new as Hyde has a bit more muscular build & bit more tapered waist line, no pot belly.

Kingpin is perfection! Now... I just need to decide if he fits on my Spidey shelf, or with Daredevil.

Oh, and hes an easy repaint for Shadow King!

bnash2420071 - 2018-07-23 @ 3:31 am

I kept saying over and over that a Kingpin BAF would be awesome. I was saying the NEtflix Kingpin though but a BAF Kingpin is better than no BAF Kingpin. It is massive and looks amazing. I cant wait to get it!

swede4444 - 2018-07-23 @ 3:30 am

I wonder how much that Kingpin figure weighs. It looks like a Toybiz-style BAF, and I mean that as a high compliment.

lotr52 - 2018-07-23 @ 12:28 am

Kingpin is BOSS. I have to buy this Spiderman wave that I'm not tothrilled about for this figure. This is my favorite reveal of the SDCC weekend.

newcollector24680 - 2018-07-22 @ 11:35 pm

Hopefully this BAF matches up with the Netflix Daredevil.
