Thats how it works. Hasbro got the rights to 1:18 and 1:12 scale and NECA looks like it got the 1:4. I don't care for this much either, I think it would have been better to lead off with Ironman or Hulk(which would be cool cause in scale he'd be around 24"-26")...but whatever. This Cap doesn't do it for me, just the hopes that this will kick off something more.

I expected the movies, but VERY surprised at the comics license. The idea of a 1:4 scale team of the original X-Men is veeeeery intriguing. And expensive. But intriguing.

I would be slightly more interested in this if it were a scale that was... not stupidly huge. The details are nice, but overall... where am I going to put that?

You'd have to be an focused collector, just cap stuff or you would have to have a collection room(s).

A 1:4 scale Hulk would be very cool. I have a few of their 18" figures,The Crow and Robocop, and they make for a nice display. They are only a head taller than a ML BAF.

Yep, they're big but just got to find space for them. I have 7 of them, all horror related.

Ya, Iron Man would be awesome! Would love to see a Wolverine or War Machine as well.
