Wait, what!?! Ayo comes with multiple heads!!!

So, in effect, we're getting a black... female... army builder. Say what you will about the MCU figures, but it's gonna be a looong time before anybody has the big shiny brass ones to try that in the comic line. Well played Hasbro!

 

...it almost makes up for blowing a valuable slot in the Riders line with Deadpool and a Vespa.

I will be skipping the new Black Panther wave. The new Vintage figures are a maybe. Deadpool on his rider is a pass. I am crossing my fingers for X-Men. I am really hoping we get a great one next year

I hope we get some good reveals later today because its looking like I maybe done for a long while til the next X-Men wave hits next year.  

Yeah, I have a hard time seeing the MCU figures selling really well. Especially if they are going to go up in price like the 10 year annv. stuff. The only 10 year annv. set I wanted was that Thor and

You know, I didn't even think of that! Right you are!

Oh and Tarot; Ayo had a couple lines ("Yes General" & "Is there nothing we can do" or something like that), plus one more Dora spoke: "Wakanda forever"! Before Killmonger slit her throat (kill me, I've seen the movie over 10 times! On my phone now).

yeah but that just proves my point of why she was named out over the others.

I am really hoping we get a great one next year and not a so so one like we are getting this year. If we do score a Gambit in his trench coat then I know I am going to be really jumping for joy. If we get a Jim Lee Beast with him then I will be screaming for joy from the top of my house. If we get a new Nightcrawler with those two figures then, I am probably dead on the floor with a heart attack from all of the excitement.

I know I know, we will probably have to wait til NYCC or Toyfair for all of the X-Men reveals.........

Seeing the whole Black Panther wave, it looks like just Klaue for me.  And I'm cool with that, these waves have been too good and too many for the wallet, I'll welcome a little break while I hunt down odds and ends.

I do wish M'Baku wan't the BAF though, I'd like the figure but not enough to get the wave.  I'm having flashbacks to Mantis with this whole, make an awesome highly request character the BAF thing.

I’m happy for the vintage wave! The Deadpool I’ll pass, while I like the Black Panther figures, I only collect comic versions, hope today we get more reveals before the panel tomorrow

My worst fears have manifest. A complete MCU wave? There's only a select few I'm even remotely interested & the M'Baku BAF interests me in none the least. Chalk up the 4th wave I will never complete.

Actually, now that I think about it, I hope this is the way they start doing all movie waves, complete with a movie BAF. That way us non-MCU fans (me included, if you haven't guessed) can only pick & choose, or ignore the wave altogether without needing to complete the BAF. Done & done. My wallet thanks you for this one, Hasbro.

Also, I'm having trouble understanding exactly why making a black female army builder is so bold. Everything, and I mean EVER-E-THING is about race and gender politics these days and Disney is right out front exacerbating it at all times. Being a man if mixed ethnicities my self, the fact that they did this neither surprises me nor excites me in any way. Personallt, I just don't like the majority of the figures. I just don't understand the forced effort to make race, gender, religion & sexual orientation sucheck an issue theses days. How bout people just like what they like & do whatever makes them happy?

I'm not typically a big fan of the movie figures, but I will say the facial accuracy/likenesses are a step above past MCU figures.  M'Baku looks cool, but I still wish they would just do a comic accurate Man-Ape figure.

I actually called that version of BP. Also does anyone else think it's ironic that the most recent version of Black Panther is in a line with classic costumes? I even liked the Scarlet Spider just because of the head. Yes it's just a repaint Peter but, well, he is his clone. 

Also someone managed to get a picture of the Back of the box and yep, Hawkeye and Vision confirmed.

That sword is definitely for Magik. the real question is whether it's just a re-release or her New Mutants outfit.

I think most are thinking the same as me as we will be getting a AIM 2-pack.

Other than that, it's been a slow day today. Very much looking forward to tomorrow. On a different note, the Hasbro line has been straight up empty the past hour (no they didn't run out of everything). Very unimpressive year for exclusives.

Is this the first time they've did an all MCU wave? I'll pass on most of the figures, since I'm not really an MCU collector. I will get Ayo though, perhaps 2, so that I'll have 3 Dora Milaje & Nakia. Unless this becomes M'Baku/Man-Ape's look in the comics, I'll pass on that too. 

I do think I'll get that Deadpool on a Vespa. 

Looks like the Vintage Wave is turning out as we predicted. Wasp was the only dice roll.

Yes, this is an all MCU wave. The 1st.

Yeah, I have a hard time seeing the MCU figures selling really well. Especially if they are going to go up in price like the 10 year annv. stuff. The only 10 year annv. set I wanted was that Thor and Lady Sif 2 pack and I got those pretty easily off of HTS. They are still available right now. I only want the main heroes. Everything else is a pass thats movie related so thats why I am really not interested in the new Black Panther wave.

My first priority is comic figures, then main MCU Heroes like Thor, Cap, Iron Man, Black Widow etc. I try to grab one of each that is the better looking one. I really was not happy with my previous Thor figures til I got the one I talked about. Now I feel wrapped up with the MCU stuff.

I'm on the fence about buying the BP wave. On one hand I'm a primarily comic collector. On the other, the chances of us getting T'Chaka and M'Baku (despite constant request for a Man_Ape) in comic form are low so they might make great stand in until then. 

The problem I think hasbro has with making a Man-Ape is simply. he is a Black man in a white Gorilla suit. kinda makes you think if it's appropriate in this day and age.
