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.
