Another Look At The Marvel Legends Fantastic Four Retro Wave Human Torch

Another Look At The Marvel Legends Fantastic Four Retro Wave Human Torch


Jay Cochran - May 12, 2021
This is basically the same 3D render image Hasbro showed off a few weeks ago during their live-stream event only now with a white background as opposed to a black one. This image comes via Hasbroís Dan Yun and itís their upcoming Flame On Human Torch figure which should be part of the new Fantastic Four Retro Cardback wave being released later this year. Look for the other 3 members of the FF team to be released in the wave with this version of their costumes. There will be two other unknown figures also released in the Retro wave.

Okay. Whew... I took you literally and thought... that anger seems a bit misplaced.

No worries, I should've been clearer on the sarcasm...you might not have been the only one who thought that.

Nope, I'm just kidding at poking fun at us here on the forum, not blaming them.

But I do think if any of them had followed the speculation here, they'd be laughing at the final confirmed result.

Wait, wait, wait... did anybody at Hasbro actually mislead or lie, or did people jump to conclusions based onspeculation, and then got pissed when their conclusion turned out wrong? Who from Hasbro ever said these were going to be part of a retro card wave? Who from Hasbro said the "jungle"/Amazon box set was Excalibur?

Is that not a swift kick in the cojones or what. From "the jungle" to retro card to this fake out. I bet the hasbro guys are laughing their asses off.

In regards to Banshee....the original figure had the wings and they seemed to be good. Materials were a lot thicker than the Storm cape anyway.

As for CALISTO...Im in agreement on her look...but we are getting a figure I never thought we'd see. I'm happy for that. Could it be better??....sure...but the reuse of parts makes sense.

Ive seen the picture the figure seems to be based on and it seems spot on. Yes I would have preferred the original "thin punk rock" look...but hey....Ill take what characters I can get.

Still bitter she's in a 5 pack though.

Then why not ask for a new/better head that's made especially for Calinstead of reusing an old head that most people hated? lol You'd get just as many people (maybe evenmore) hating on that figure forthe reuse head (of questionable quality)on top of the reuse buck.

Because asking for a head specifically made for Calisto is more expensive, and less reasonable, than Hasbro using a head that they already have.

Some people may not have liked the Phoenix head, but its a whole lot closer to Calisto'scomic look than the one Hasbro's showing us now. Narrow, pinched face. Like RyanDaly said, Patti Smith. Maybe there's one even closer, I don't know.

And given their preferred practice of re-using (which does make good economic sense when warranted), its baffling that in this case they went in another direction.

Yes. Read @RyanDaly's response.

Anyways, the soft goods cape on the "Jim Lee" Storm was weak. If the cape has folds out of the box, then you're ****ed coz that's there forever.

Don't even get me started onthe little flimsy yarn they used to tie around her wrists. The whole thing looks like you can break it if you look at it wrong. Why not go for a similar metal ring that they used on the Storm from the Jubilee Wave?

Do better for Banshee, Hasbro.

Yeah spiky hair dont cut it. Probably the only "flamed off" version of Johnny I would want would be his retro red/yellow outfit he wore briefly in the 70s, as an homage to the original Human Torch. I'd love to see that one.

Yeah surprised they haven't done Combat Red Johnny yet.

No worries. I think it wouldve been cool to give him a late 60s comic head, and they did a good job on his Trident but it has that "butterscotch" paint instead of metallic yellow/gold/brass, which would be better.

I agree. Thats why mine isnt holding his trident. Just doesnt look good to my eye.
