Getting their money's worth out of that sword mold.

Some recent pick-ups: Marvel Legends Psylocke, Typhoid Mary, and Lady Deadpool. All of whom come with the same sword, which isn't new to any of them, it's been used for more than a couple Deadpool figures.

Also, we should acknowledge Hasbro rectified a long-standing injustice, with the release of Spider-Ham!

I know some were bitching about the lack of articulation below the waist for Spider-Ham, but there is precedent.

See I gotta' slightly disagree there, because the articulation issue w/ Spider-Ham shouldn't have been that much of a problem. They could've articulated the waist better, and for damn sure made the legs and feet more articulated than they were. That was straight up lazy, whereas at least with the belly/waist you could see why the restrictions were there. Yes, at least we finally got a Spider-Ham figure, but basically he's a more-articulated FUMKO POP doll at this point.

Oh well, better luck next time?

Still waiting on that BAF Lockjaw though.

Precedent may be, but Howard was NOT a full price spotlight release, he was a pack-in, a bonus with a fully articulated figure that had its own diorama stand and comic book. If Spider-Ham was a freebie with a Spidey variant or something, no one would be complaining. But if Hasbro can pack in joints on Rocket Racoon- who is smaller and has a smaller standing base than the Ham- they can do so on Spider-Ham and chose instead to cheap out. And that's not something anyone should be happy about.
