yeah
I had a really bad accident involving my entire MCP deisplay box just falling. Storm, Ghost Rider and all the small bad plastic people thought would break didnt. Only one model lost a piece i could not recover, Toads Tongue.

Really liked the X-Men sculpts but subsequent stuff has been really weird. Luke Cage and Iron Fist has bizzaro poses. The former is about a boring as possible while the latter may be the goofiest one yet, and there is a lot of competition for that title.

I think Luke Cage's pose suits him. No-nonsense, just a big tough guy. Iron Fist's pose looks weird from the angle we've seen it so far, I'm hoping it looks better in person, but yes, it looks like a miss so far. But at least it's unique and dynamic; there's something to be said for that.

Go watch the stream of both of them getting painted. Luke has great detail in a static pose, which is pretty uncommon in the game. And Danny looks more complete when you see the whole thing, though I’m still not thrilled by the pose. It feels like an effort to see how far they could push the CAD modeling, over a realistic pose. I feel the same about Angela.

I actually quite like both poses.
TBH, i like all the poses, but i have never been to fussy over poses.

My only problem with Iron Fist is the dragon’s trail doesn’t really make sense. Like is that the actual path his fist took?

I was thinking the same thing. Like, I guess with enough kung fu flips its possible, but dragging your fist across the ground seems unwise.

I will say, it looks much better in the 360 in their gallery. I think it would look a bit better tilted down a bit and higher up, but turned a bit you can better see how the legs look and makes him look a lot less awkward.

Luke also has MUCH better angles. His sculpt is quickly becoming a favorite. I do wish he was crushing something a little more subtle, but I love the sense that he's just this solid, won't be moved pose with the only show of power being under his boot.

I totally agree, I've been a Luke Cage fan for a long time and I think his sculpt captures his character perfectly. There are a few sculpts that really demonstrate character, not just action - Luke Cage, Kingpin, and Bullseye are all great examples (and I suppose Deadpool as well!).

I think we can see why he didn't work with drop off--Strength 7, Area 2 Mystic attack that heals Cable?

The beam is probably a bigger issue. Sounds like its B5, which is really powerful, but you often only get to use once to max effect because of positioning. Getting essentially 3 could definitely be a problem.

Perhaps it's best to imagine it whipping around, like a tail rather than a trail? Still strange, but could be a little easier to stomach that way.

Not as strong as I feared it could be. Solid but not outlandish. Definite possibility with Bam! and the Doomed Prophecy bombs.

He's really really solid, but almost entirely a damage piece. The lack of board manipulation will make him less powerful as like... Valkyrie.

Being immune to things like Amora and Mystique or Strange and MODOK is big and his rerolls bump his stats significantly. Healing factor giving him access to X-ceptional Healing is also just really strong.

Being healthy when injured also gives him a lot of super interesting interactions. He'll fit in a lot of places for sure, but he's probably not in the tippy top list of characters.

I wasn't liking his pose TBH until I saw him with that head.
I will have to find something suitable to out him on other than the rocket.

I'm planning to put the FWOOSH on the ground and have him leaping off of just that.

I’m expecting a Widow like threat 3 with rerolls and “bomb” potential.

I am a fan of Domino but neutral on Cable, so this box was never an auto-buy for me. From the description it looks like Domino is good, though power-hungry. Things Tend to go My Way is an awesome innate power though. I'll have to wait for the final reveal, I don't really need more three-threat characters.

Funny enough, I DESPISE Cable as a character, but between really liking the sculpt and generally liking the way all the X-Force characters seem to be designed, I feel like he might be one of my most played characters overall.

Yes, tactical rocks aside, the average quality of MCP sculpts is quite commendable. The Cable sculpt looks great.

Cable's rules got spoiled today. Really solid, but I'm not quite sure he's on par with other 5 threats. Looks like he's going to be power starved unless that gun gets some good rolls.

Ironically he might be better is Brotherhood, but putting him and magneto in the same roster might be iffy. losta point sink

Not feeling that Black Cat pose and the explosion under Spidey seems a bit much. Antagonists look solid though.

Hell yeah. Really hoping for a Sinister Six faction (in fact I was shocked that Goblin's leadership wasn't Sinister Six!). These will be the first boxes I pre-order, I think. I love The Lizard's base.

I agree 100% about Spidey and Black Cat, though. Spidey's base is way too busy and Black Cat looks painful. Ow, my back!

Yeah, the Black Cat pose is really not great. I can accept that the Spider Man exploding base won’t be to everyone’s taste, but I think it works nicely for what I have planned, plus that’s way easier to change than Black Cat’s... entire body. Still may have to add those two to my collection of unbuilt Web Warriors.

Cat is in her "leap off the building" pose. Kind of odd but I bet it would rotate well if you anchor her off a lamp post or stoplight or something. Spidey Foes looks great. I think they went with that name just so Norman and the Symbiotes don't get left out. Also REALLY hard to get a 6 man team in the game in general, so the name would be a bit odd. Sinister Six proper would need a new Ock to be the leader anyway.

Well, those look pretty cool. I'm not really interested in the game because the rules don't sound good, but this may be the thing that gets me to buy some of the models.
