Recommended Posts

Here is the official thread for the news and discussions ML.
Just a few thing before then though (if any other mods think there should be something else please add)

  • DO NOT POST PICS OR LINK TO OTHER SITES.
    • I know we all get excited when we read something on another site but please know that this site will post news and images on the main page. You are allow to write what other sites have reported, that fine as we know we can't stop you all from doing that but don't post any pics or link. That plus our boss get really mad at us lol :P
  • Don't not make multiple thread discussing the same thing.
    • Keep all SDCC news to this thread. If you have an opinion or even anger rant (come one we know some one will), please post it here. If we MODs see a thread like this one, it will be merged together with this one.
  • Try and keep wishlist til after the SDCC, (Sunday or Monday).
    • We are not going to ban wishlist thread, in fact we like them, but there is really no point in make a list until we know all that is coming out. Also their will usually be the annual "Post SDCC Wishlist" Thread going up on Monday.

The exclusives are really where the comic collectors...like myself really benefit! With most waves being 50/50, comic/mcu, the exclusives are usually 90% comic and have given us the best new character selection.

 

I'm hoping to see a full return of the 2pks. And continuing to give us alternate heads and such to make additional characters (like Magus, Spider carnage, CapWolf, etc).

Thanks Tarot! I was at work wondering when this thread would officially begin! I can now let everyone know I will again serve as correspondent to the Con. If anyone has any questions they want me to ask the design team, please post them here and I'll do my best to pass them along (and hopefully get some good answers). Please do not ask "can you make..." or "will ___ come out" questions. We should all know by now, if it isn't currently revealed, then they won't speak on it. They'll have reveals every day, plus a whole bunch during their panel on Saturday. I'll pass on any info that comes up even during casual conversation. I'll try to keep you guys as close to the event as I can. I'll be there Thursday throughout.

 

The 1st bit of news to get us started is: by Thursday evening I should have 11 new figs! Lol (not the news you're checking for, I know)!

Rektangular has shown that there is a new X-men wave in Walgreens computers. seems they are now not showing what figures are in the wave which is good as it add more surprises for the cons.

 

 

He also said this could very likely be the Deadpool Wave that has been highly rumored.

 

 

I saw that video and I hope there will be another X-Men wave that is not Deadpool themed or I will be heavily disappointed. I want a new Jim Lee Storm or her first appearance dang it or at least someone from the Jim Lee team back in the 90's.

Gamespot Exclusice! Back in Black Deadpool

 

That image is of a walgrees computer not Gamestop

 

Enewsi.com has confirmed the Deadpool to be a Gamestop exclusive. As for the image it is confirmation of a 3rd X-men wave that it is rumored to be a Deadpool wave.

 

 

I know about the Gamestop exclusive. I add it to the List of news in the first post like I always do. Also I have that image in the second post.

 

That being said looks like we might be getting a DP wave and a separate X-men wave, alongside Black Panther, Avengers and something call a Vintage wave.

Part of me is both delighted and disgusted with what was revealed at the press event.

 

First the elephant in the room, the vintage line is a nice little nod to veteran of all toy collecting but couldn't they have done something different for the figures. I know that Cap has the chain mail painted on with the shield effect accessory but it's just the same cap and the same spidey (though given how much the Pizzia eating spidey is now it is a nice rerelease for those who can't afford it.) not saying it's a bad idea cause I love the idea but they could have done something different. Don't even know if i going to bother with it.

 

as for the deadpool wave. they look great!!! I'm one of the people who doesn't really get the hype around DP. I mean I love the character but he really shouldn't be this marketable as he is. DP looks great. Im going to consider this his First Appearance.

 

Cable is actually mile better then the last one and that one was fucking awesome!!! can't wait for this one. seem to use most of that figure with new sculpted parts.

 

Domino is the best figure shown today. I have the previous one but this trump that immensely. will be using Mockingbird sculpt which was great.

 

But The best news is the Black Widow. Not only do we get a much much needed update to BW but we get confirmation of a Accessories/ Deluxe line.

I love cable, deadpool and domino. The black widow figure itself is also really good, it's about time we got an updated comic version of Natasha.

 

My one issue is the bike.

 

Why does black widow deserve a vehicle? I could think of a ton of characters that would be far better suited to coming with a vehicle. Overdrive? Ghost rider?! The black widow symbol also limits its versatility in my display. That bike would have looked great with cyclops or wolverine without the symbol on it.

Yes Black Widow needed a new figure so why not give her a fecking awesome bike. She does uses bikes? BS. She is one of the few females that nearly uses a bike more then a car or other such vehicle.

 

 

but if you don't like the bike there is a rumour that she might be part of the Vintage line as well.

 

Also Iron Man - Hopefully Hasbro latest attempt at Classic or such.

 

Punisher - probably the Walgreens with new head.

 

and Wolverine - which will more then likely be the much wanted Tiger Stripe version.
