No, I must disagree. That is clearly not the Young Thor mold. Look at the official press images of each of them. The key detail is the abdominals. The ones on the Young Thor are more square and symetrical & the cut at the obliques angle upward. This Gladiator is clearly the exact same one that came in the Thanos Imperative exclusive. It's not even a repaint, it's identical. Now, the final product might have a slightly different color palette so they can claim it's different but if this press image is the final product it is nothing but a straight repack. What a cop out way of filling out the wave. For them to proclaim this to be the best wave ever it hardly even look's like they're even trying. Guess they used the majority of the budget for the MCU figures next year. They better be good.Young thor mold. but most of it reuses the older figure with just the chest being different.
Prowler....at last! I can't believe it took so long to get him out, but he looks great, worth all the wait. And Mr. Fantastic looks like he has bendy wire in his arms! Those two alone are enough to make me happy with NYCC. Add to that Madrox and the new Psylocke effect piece, it's a great set of reveals!
On a different note, can anyone confirm if Gladiator is just a straight repaint? He looks like he is, but from the sideshots I couldn't tell if this is the Hyperion mold or the Young Thor mold.
also is it weird that I already have a place for all the figures announced today planned out.
