Ok, so I was at a Walmart last night and they had both the Sinister/Gambit and Thanos/Adam Warlock comic packs. I said I wanted the two bigger guys but wasn't a fan of the comic pack thing (not entirely sure why, maybe the price?) and so I stood there in the isle and thought about it for a few minutes. I ended up buying them both, and just wanted to mention a few things briefly.
For starters I ended up getting home late and didn't get much of a chance to fiddle with the figures, but here's my first impressions. Gambit is a real bummer, and doesn't have wrist swivels or a thumb on his left hand, so holding his staff is nigh impossible. He's not very possable at all in truth. Mr. Sinister looks terrific, and he's very poseable, but his cape doesn't quite sit right and is prone to falling off. PErhaps I didn't devote enough time to try and attach it, as I said I was only briefly able to mess with them.
Adam Warlock is a really nice figure, with all the articulation and he's really eye-catching. The Infinity Gauntlet is just an over-the forearm accessory, like it's not an actual gauntlet for him and it seems like it'll pop off whenever given the chance. But, he's really nice to look at.
Thanos is pretty cool, but looking at him next to Apocalypse shows how nice Thanos really is. They share some body parts, but the forearms and lower legs are all new on Thanos, and it's enough to really make him look like an entirely new figure. Maybe also the missing Apocalypse shoulder pads, I don't know. Thanos' gold is really gold as well, makes it really pop visually, and that's good since his blue is just blue.
I got each pack for $14 at Walmart, whereas at Target I see them for $18-19, and I'm not willing to spend that for these figures. I'm not happy how the individual carded figures are creeping up towards the $9.99 mark either.
