The Hunt Begins



The Funko might be the easiest Okoye to find but her stupid BUILD A FIGURE - Figure, is such a piece of money stealing bullshit that ruins the action figure collecting hobby. I refuse to have to buy all the figures in a particular line, like the Black Panther line, then open all the boxes (which I hate to do) to get the piece to make the Build A Figure which in this case is Okoye. So you give me NAMOR who was NOT in the movie and deny me one of the strong female leads who should have DOMINATED this line you retards. So now NOBODY who doesn't want to pay scalpers prices is denied one of their favorite characters. I lost BAF Arim Zola, Fin Fang Foom and GALACTUS the same way. If they drop Namor and Black Bolt you would have room for Shuri AND Okoye. You pulled a bullshit, punk ass move, Marvel Legends and the nation of Wakanda will not forget.

So this figure, which should be a singular figure in the main line now will go for scalper's prices on the popular internet soaking sites for collectors. Fuck you corporate bastards who can forsee such an issue and find a way to eliminate the practice all together.
I forgot again. When were Iron Man, Black Bolt or Namor in the BLACK FREAKIN' PANTHER movie? I didn't see them so can you admit, Marvel Legends, that you fucked up and now you need to fix said fuck up by giving us all what we want - Our General Okoye action figure - Hell I will even pony up a few extra bucks for the Nakya, Shuri and Okoye three character boxed set.

Any female superhero gets short shrift in the action figure department. Try to find a decent Black Widow -- IMPOSSIBLE! Only WW had a moment of glory with her movie-related merchandise.

Most female characters get one shot but there is a widow one coming out with her motorcycle. The girl figures have always been hard to find because they are made at a 100 to 1 ratio with the male figures. And to make Okoye a figure that requires a collector to find all the little pieces in many boxes instead of just putting her together in one.

That's particularly shitty of them to do that. Corporate BS at it's finest. I smell a Mouse with a capitol M.
When the greedy orcs took over after Walt died, and then Roy Disney died, and from then on it was all about the money. I'm glad I got to grow up when Disney was Walt Disney.

I agree...that show was the best thing about Sunday Night after Carol Burnett. Even the theme parks make you feel butt hurt sometimes.
