There's a pic on a different forum. It's very blurry, but I'm pretty sure Enchantress has a new headsculpt and a new body.

 

I'm also going to need that BAF Man-Thing. Much as I hate to admit it, I also want Blade and the Netflix characters. God help me, I may actually be buying and not selling and entire wave of Legends. Damn it Dwight.

Oh.  My.  God.
Finally some news that I can actually be excited about!!  Executioner has always been a favorite villain, so I was very excited when he was shown -- years ago (!), now.  I am very happy that they are finally, finally releasing him.  It would have been a real jackass move if Hasbro had cancelled the line without ever getting him out to us.  (They still need to give us that green Foom, though!)

I would have preferred Hela or Sif, or some other new character to the Enchantress, but she is a fair release since it has been many years since that Secret Wars pack that featured her.

The last thing that I was actually excited about for our scale was last year's SDCC exclusive.  Neither of the new waves shown for this year featured a character or costume that I really cared about.  The Shocker/Spidey set was welcome, but the half-a$$ed Shocker figure really dampened my enthusiasm.

I can't wait to finally add the Executioner to my collection. :)

I'm just realizing....we haven't even seen at wide retail most of the figs shown LAST year at SDCC.

I'm starting to wonder if the shipments that Target got are all that we'll see. I have a sinking feeling that the Jessica Jones wave may also be canned. Hopefully we'll get some good news next month.

I could see two packs being the way forward for 3.75 for now. Seems more cost effective. So I don't think they are dead but might need to be rethought:

 

Jewel paired with Luke retooled for instance. Or a purple man would be awesome

AOA Magneto would likely need an AOA counterpart

Cap can pair up with anyone really.

 

Easy solution is pair up Cap and Jewel even though they don't super interact and call it Secret Empire

Then pair Magneto up with Spider-Man 2099 and call it Alternate Timelines.

 

There. Two packs released. Four new figures out.

I'd be ok with the line continuing this way. $20 for two figures works out cheaper than what they're charging for singles now.

Not only would I be OK with if, I would prefer it.  If I'm going to get mediocre figures with reduced articulation and no accessories, I'd rather get 2 for 20 than 1 for 15.

After seeing the Inhumans trailer today, I'm kind of glad that we probably won't see any figures from it. If Hasbro wants to announce 6" versions at SDCC, I'm not going to be jealous.

I was hugely disappointed when they cancelled the Inhumans movie and changed it into being a tv series instead. :(

According to someone who posted on another site, the contract for 3.75 Marvel was renewed, and the line will continue for at least another year.  Supposedly some new stuff will be shown at this year's Hascon.  

More wait and see, in other words.  :(

I know who you're talking about. He's not particularly reliable and he gets info mixed up quite often. If he's right, I'll absolutely give credit where it's due. I hope he really does have inside info like he claims, but he's known to be an attention seeker.

So..... almost 3 days into Comic Con. No new figures shown (other than the Thor 2 packs). Safe to say this line may be dead?

Someone quoted Jesse Falcon as saying no 4 inch this Year at SDCC but next year would be big. Is that the guy you're referencing?

Another site posted a Q&A with Dwight and co. from the show floor. It really doesn't look like we are getting anything else this year besides what we already know about. There's an awkward bit at the end of the video where the interviewer asks what the team wants to accomplish over the next year. Dwight and the dude in the middle mention things like better sculpting, but poor Bobby says he'd be happy if just one person comes up to him and thanks him for making a specific character. I kinda felt sad for him.

Panel over. Nothing. Nothing. Oh well. Damn shame that no one asked them about 3.75" in the Q&A, although one kid asked about Kingpin and Dwight wanted to know what scale. Someone screamed BOTH, so hopefully something good will come from that.

 

It's just weird to know that a company actively refuses to take my money.

When the person said "both", I bet Dwight automatically assumed they meant 6" & 12"...

I can't believe 12" is becoming a thing. Who's got the space!!

Dwight specifically asked if they wanted 3.75" or 6".

 

And it seems like a huge wasted opportunity to not have Giant-Man or any other large character in the 12" line.

Gotcha - I was only going off what I'd read. With regards to Dwight I've been trained to expect the worst (or just absolutely nothing) when it comes to the 3.75" scale.

So aside from tasting the rainbow with Skittles Deadpool, that's it.

 

Glad I ordered the final wave from BBTS. Something tells me it may be difficult to find.

I really think this was the final nail in the coffin... We've been let down in the past, but I don't ever think I've ever been so insulted by a company, not even a mention of us and their pitiful offerings to the Star Wars fans of this scale were no better. EFF you Hasbro. My wallet thanks you and so will the other toy companies that will be getting my money from now on. If I'm forced to go BIGGER, maybe I'll do it right and buy a Sideshow Collectibles figure with all the money I used to spend on you.  End rant.

And when that happens I will retract my "Eff you Hasbro".  LOL
