Got mine today & it was excellent. This is the Vulture that shoulda been in the 2nd Spider-Man wave & the MCU Vulture shoulda been a Walmart exclusive.

On a side note, I know I can't be the only one to notice the only winged characters that come with actual wings are the Walmart exclusives. I'm talking to you Sam Wilson Cap & MCU Vulture.

Awesome news, Rektangular is usually pretty spot-on, or at least 90% correct most of the time. I agree, Gwenpool is hard to categorize. Other than her name and 4th wall awareness she actually has very little to do with Deadpool. There really wasn't much of a place to fit her in, other than perhaps another Knights wave. Finally, Prowler & Mysterio have been a long time coming. Spider-Punk & Spider Noir should have gotten the call long before C-Teamers like Spider UK or Cosmic Spider-Man so I'm glad to see we get them both as either could carry it's own wave. I just hope they are worth the wait. It's going to be a challenge to top TB's Demogoblin but I have faith in Hasbro's abilities. Put me in the group who also thinks Spider-Woman will be the post Secret Wars "modern" look, which is fine by me. The BAF will probably be a Build-A-Backpack for Gwenpool.

I still think there are quite a few characters left to do to close out most of our Spider-Villains collection, but hey, at least he gets villains made. I still count comic Vulture, Scorpion, Doc Ock, Vermin & Hydro Man as figures that need to be done, and how about a Kraven as Black Spider-Man on the Reaper mold for an idea. IMO, other than Vermin or Kraven Spider, any one of those could be done as a BAF. I just hope Hasbro doesn't make a habit of doing what they did with the Vulture wave. I can foresee the sheer horrah of the next wave being a Build-A-Tenticles wave for a half complete Doc Ock or Iron Spider single card figure.

Hope I didn't just give them any bright ideas.

That is most definitely a late 90's to early 2000's Toybiz figure. Back around that time they did a Ghost Rider with motorcycle and then they got the idea to put Spidey on one & if I recall correctly even Human Torch. Anyway there was basically 3 tiers, the cheapest being the fixed pose figure on a push and rev type toy. That one is the fully articulated premium version, but it's missing it's helmet.

In Topic: Thor Ragnarok Movie first look (not figures!)

I'm hoping the Executioner BAF is the comic version because the movie version looks be way too small. I know the Mantis figure proves the BAF doesn't have to be large but there's nothing about the MCU Skurge that probably can't be done on single card. Also I'm hoping the Gladiator Hulk will be a comic version where the armor can be removed to just be Hulk. With Bruce Banner Hulk set to come back in the comics this would be the perfect time to strike while the iron's hot. My threshold for movie Hulks has reached it's peak, plus they did a really good job making the movie version look like the comic version it would be recognizable to the average consumer either way.

KiloinNorcal, I too have been underwhelmed by Valkyrie since they unveiled her months ago. Not sure what it is, whether it's the mundane color palette as compares to the rest of the characters or the lack of ornate armor, but it's just bland. To put it into perspective compare it to the Wonder Woman trailers. Even the most boring of the background Amazons are more interesting than Valkyrie. Best case scenario is that this is just her "civilian design" and she has a much more interesting transformation that they've been keeping under wraps. Though statistics would show that a picture would have been leaked by now. This might be as good as it gets. On the bright side it might be so boring that they would have to do a comic version of the character to avoid another Karl Mordo situation.

Wow, total dicks. Like we're always saying, if you can't afford the habit you got no business being a collector. I mean it's not like prices are ever gonna go down. I really do like ML's packaging but if there's any complaint I have it's that it's too easy for douches to do stuff like this. That's one of the most severe cases I've ever seen. Looks like they've been doing it and getting away with it for so long they aren't even trying to make it look legit anymore. Karma will bite them in the ayass in the end, tho.
