Got the new Knights wave, OMG, love this wave, it feels so good to hold and look at windowed packaging again, it just makes me gush, it felt so hollow looking at those Windowless packs, this feels right, and yeah I adore this wave, some of the years best figs, finally Clea! and Lady Bullseye, cant't wait to build that Mindless One 🥰

I agree, this is an amazing wave. Nearly every figure is better than expected, I even live the much maligned Luke "arm pits" Cage. 

Clea and DD are my favorites but there isn't a Mort in the bunch. Only problem is the Fist Ninjas have been impossible to army build since I can't find any and the Mindless One BAF (a remarkable feat of engineering btw) is so cool but will sadly be the lone Mindless One in my collection. So dumb an Army builder is a BAF.. SO dumb.

Iron Man i had zero opinion on at first is a nice figure. By no means essential  but I think people on the fence will pick him up once they see him in hand

Also agree the plastic included packaging is a return to normal.  It was a noble failure but it was doomed from the start I suspect. Such is the pitfalls of being a manufacturer to collectables

Had to resort to Pulse's clearance sale to get Talos and Goliath from the (ugh) Hydra Stomper wave to complete the BAF

Why?!?!?  granted this Talos is an improvement but Goliath is basically a generic character.  Why haven't  I seen either in stores? This is  a confounding hobby yeah?

Yeah this is maybe the favy wave of the year, sure I'm not a complainer and we had really nice waves this year, like Puff Adder and Ch'od (wait was that it for the comic crowd....?) but this wave was a serious winner I like every figure but DD, and it's not like i think hes bad, hes just not something I want, the one dud..which was Iron Man, is no dud, that;s a hot looking Iron Man, black & gold..mhhmmm it's a keeper, but really Mindless One BAF, clea, lady BS, Blade...and then Luke cage, who is the best Cage ever (despite his flaws), Fist Ninja who has a skull head duh, love that, and well an Iron Man that is aesthetically very pleasing, super wave IMO.

My What If ? Goliath and MCU Talos arrived but I'm so annoyed that I was unable to find them in the wild that I sent them to their room with no dinner. That will teach them 

On a side note..  the Gamora/Thanos hybrid figure is actually a really well designed figure. For some reason I thought she was She-Hulk sized... Wonder why I had that in my head?!?

Have seen zero signs of the Far From Home wave in stores but noticed my pre-order for Garfield Spidey updated from January to this Sunday. 

Kinda glad I got these from Amazon and canceled my P.Os from Pulse. Pulse tends to get stuff way later.

Got my Final Swing Spidey in from Amazon.  Looks really good, but like the other No Way Home Spideys it just seems to fall a little short of greatness, needs a little better leg, and torso articulation.

Decided to bite the bullet like a foo, because of lingering sales and bought Marvel's wave Captain Marvel, Commander Rogers and Kamala, soley for the BAF pieces so I could  build Amadeus Cho...

I knew eventually I'd cave just so I can try and complete Cho. what a Sucka.

sadly Monica wasn't on sale, so still gotta track her down for a reduced price.

funny enough I actually kinda like the Captain Marvel

but would love to get rid of Kamala and Rogers (why is that Rogers head sculpt really the 20th one, but just slightly worse?)

and Got Monica for a lowish price, just grabbed her to build Amadeus Cho, and glad I did.

because I actually love this Monica figure, I broke my rules, no movie figs, but she's a winner. Way to go Hasbro making this BAF nice, and forcing me to buy a wave I didn't exactly want...ick.

Awesome Hulk completed!

Not exactly a Haul but rather a kitbash/almost custom of Emma Frost using  astonishing legs and diaper and combining it with torso from 2013 Wolverine series Emma and Black costume Emma head. Trickiest part was cutting 2013 figure and then attaching it to 2023 ball joint leg system. But overall I'm really happy with the results, I guess it's due to so called Ikea (you made it yourself) factor.

Snagged a black and gold Iron Man from the Mindless One wave, mainly for the BAF piece, but an added surprise was that the open hands fit the deluxe War Machine from a few years back, and the red repulsors look really nice.  It feels so much more complete now, and it was already one of my absolute favorite Legends.

Looks good! And that Psylocke looks pretty sweet as well!

Only need Sandman to complete the NWH figures they've released so far.

Haven't seen much mention of it here but on other sites there are a ton of pics of Final swing and Andrew Spideys legs snapping off due to tight hip joints.. be careful. 

I have the Spidey 3 pack and didn't have this issue. Sounds like the old bath them in boiling water is the fix. I've also gotten some track oil to lube the joint as well

Picked up the Knull/Venom 2 pack on sale, and that open mouthed alternate head, might be the best Venom head of all.  Swapped onto the 3 pack Venom from Amazon, I think I've finally got my perfect Venom.

Deluxe No Way Home Green Goblin and Doc Ock came in, and of course tore up my top figures of the year list.  Both great, and Goblin is excellent.  Also got in the first half of the Void wave, Vision is solid, not perfect, but solid, and Justice and Namorita do a good job filling in for their classic counterparts for the New Warriors.  Can't say I'd be sorry if that's the only versions of these two we ever get. 

The Void BAF looks pretty awesome, at least the parts I have in hand, but for now he joins Puff Adder and the Mindless One as incomplete until I can score some sales on the leftover figures.

it ended up being a "SWEET Christmas"--I scored the ML marvel Knights Luke Cage Power Man.....and I'm delighted to see he does better the old Toy Biz Luke Cage figure.

He is a nice figure. Hoping someday they repaint his pants blue but until then, another classic Marvel character checked off

Just got the first parts of the Void wave off Amazon. Was hoping to complete the wave before the 1st of the year but only Black Panther and Savage Namor arrived.

Both look fantastic. Namor has a bit of a Jason Mamoa vibe and with Aquaman 2 in theaters it may not be coincidence. Panther is a beautiful figure. The jet black with gold highlights give him a regal appearance. One of my all time favorite Toybiz figures just got done better by Hasbro..
