These all seem a little dull. None of them are striking dramatic poses, ready to leap into battle [except for Wolverine and Hulk].

The artwork for Wolverine makes me feel even more artistically inadequate than usual. :lol:

Can't wait to see it in color. Almost makes me wish they were doing a short comic series to go with em.

PowerGlide as a figure looks awesome, but I feel he has a name change coming once I pick him up.

Ah, I didn't see that before. Seems like an odd request, though. Perhaps the goal was to appeal to collectors over kids?

In my opinion this shares a similar quality to the G1 artwork.

Actually wait, the marvel TF stuff is new.

Sorry, my bad. I guess the new guys can steal teach this old dog some new tricks. Hopefully, I'll be back to following the news regularly like I was before...

wow this is great stuff! i really like the hulk's and wolvey's posing...as for the TF's i think they requested for plain standing poses to give the characters sort of an "iconic" look...very nice! can't wait for the toys! :APPLAUSE: :grin:
