A solid looking wave, Skullbuster and Blink are the only two I'm not in a massive rush to get

 

also interesting they aren't using product shorts on the packaging.

That's cool though. I quite enjoyed the way MU used to use a new artist for the product package art on every wave. I never understood why they put the image of the product on the back when you could clearly see the product through the box window front. Actually, it mighta been due to the fact that the product shots sometimes looked a hellova lot better than the final product. Example: Six Arm Spidey.

As far as the wave itself. By far the strongest X-Wave ever. Shame about that BAF though. Admittedly it does look good. I hope we see more Reavers. The Scourge mold would be perfect for Macon and Reese. We know a Deathstrike is not to far off. I'm gonna make a prediction now and say she will come as a Walgreens exclusive. Bonebreaker has BAF written all over it, and if Strong Guy has to get the shaft again, I'd be okay if it's this one. Pretty Boy is the only wildcard. Maybe some version of the classic Ultron mold.

Usually the back of the box was to show some sort of cool action shot or the figure without all the backaging (or in the case of TFs, the other mode) Also it is interesting that even the other figures in the wave image uss art instead of product shots

Good looking wave, Gambit, Beast and Skullbuster for me. The rest I will have to try and catch on clearance. They keep this up and I will have to get an extra job.

The more pics I see, the more I wish Blink didn't come with that dynamic skirt.  Still grabbing the figure, though.

Being a cherry picker I was counting the ones that I must own......then I noticed I counted them all but two, so I guess I will just pick up the set. BTW, am I the only one that would have love to see a movie Blink? I know it will never happen because Marvel will be re-casting the X-Men, but I would have love to had a Fan Bingbing action figure.

These are Bad Ass!, Hasbro truly knows how to make great eye Candy. I have to admit that after seeing these I am actually more interested in possibly saving up to get the set. Even though there is so much Marvel Legends stuff going on right now that I am still trying to play catch up with the Black Panther series 2 line! How do you people do it? I am fully committed to being a 'Die Hard Collector', but I have to make serious changes in my eating habits in order to save up end to buy a line every couple months. I guess if its important enough, I'll find the money to do it. Like Dr.Ian Malcolm(Jeff Goldblum says in Jurassic Park : "Life uh, uh, Finds a Way!"

Im definetely getting Gambit, Beast, Jubilee and Weapon X as soon as they come out, Ill probably hold off on the rest till they are on discount, I really dont think Forge Blink and Skullbuster will sell all that well in my country and will most likely end up being on clearance later down the road (probably jubilee too but I really want that figure so Ill snatch her up once the wave comes out)

I can see Skullbuster and Forge warming, but Blink may surprise us.  I am going to preorder what I can for the simple fact that I have hardly seen any of the x-men legends at retail in my area and probably never will.

Im only speaking for my contry, a big part of the collector population here only knows about the MCU and main characters (like spiderman, wolverine, cyclops, cap, etc..) figures that are of cool characters that are not that well kown or not that recent tend to only sell at the begining (when real fans buy them) and once stores get restock they never sell, I think over all blink would be a good seller (specially cause she was a fan favorite figure, but sadly  in my country people dont read comics that much and not a lot of people know blink, its sad to see the likes of bishop, omega red, iceman, fenix, x-23, elektra, bullseye, sunfire and such pegwarming and people fighting over a repainted ironman from the mcu, but in the end its also good for collectors cause that way we can hold off on certain figures and know we'll be able to get them cheap later on)

That's crazy.  I feel like the exact opposite happens here in my area in the states.  The comic figures never really show up or they disappear soon.  I hardly ever see restocks on legends and never on DC multiverse.  I can find about the entire first wave for Black Panther and all but Fury for Captain Marvel though.

These same glam shots have been available on hasbro pulse website for a while now :p

Pre-ordered Jubilee, Beast and Gambit. Will try to hunt for Blink and Forge. I'll wait for sales for Weapon X and Skullbuster.

I would beware.  I had them all cancelled out from under me and was minutes away from missing Jubilee on Pulse to make up for it.  Then a month later, they cancel my Prof X order I had with them since he went live and had to pay the extra to get him through GameStop.  I definitely learned my lesson preordering with Amazon.

Unfortunately I had no idea Amazon was prone to cancelling preorders. Now I’m stuck because I missed out on Hasbro Pulse. So I just have to cross my fingers and hope I don’t get cancelled on.

    • Right. I don't remember anyone having a problem with Bucky replacing Cap (don't get me started on how many Captain America's there were before the ridiculous Sam controversy- even the Red Skull bodysnatched Cap for a time), or the blonde Black Widow, the Crimson Dynamo, Union Jack, Red Hulks, need I go on. There's nothing in this announcement that says Jack Russell terrier is being wiped out in favor of this new guy. In fact I wouldn't be surprised if they end up having both werewolves cross paths.
    • Looking at that Crossbones figure, I think the head is sitting way too high on the neck peg. Once I get it, I'll just Dremel the hole in the head a bit deeper & that should fix the Giraffe issue. These are due to hit the pegs sometime in March?

    • When MARVELS SNAPSHOTS begins in March, fans will get to see Marvel's greatest characters from the Golden Age to today, in new legendary tales told through the eyes of ordinary people! As curator of this landmark series, Kurt Busiek has handpicked the creative teams for each standalone, double-sized issue and he’s put together an amazing assemblage of talent to tackle April’s issues focusing on Captain America and the X-Men. First up, Eisner nominated writer Mark Russell will revisit Jack Kirby’s classic Madbomb storyline from his 1970s run on CAPTAIN AMERICA. “Some people, when they call, you gotta pick up the phone. And Kurt Busiek is one of those people,” says Russell. “I was pretty instantly sold on the project once he started describing it to me— stories about the human cost of these famous conflicts in the Marvel Universe. I truly enjoyed working on this with him.” Known for his work on books like Second Coming and Wonder Twins, Russell says MARVELS SNAPSHOT: CAPTAIN AMERICA will focus on “the Madbomb's impact in the South Bronx, a community which had already been effectively abandoned by the rest of the nation, that community's struggle for survival, and of the search for heroes of its own.” He will be joined by acclaimed artist Ramón Pérez(ALL-NEW HAWKEYE). Next, in X-MEN: MARVELS SNAPSHOT, readers will see the rise of super heroes from the eyes of a young orphan named Scott Summers, the boy who would grow up to be Cyclops. The future X-Men leader couldn’t be in safer hands. Jay Edition, the co-host of the popular X-Men podcast, Jay and Miles X-Plain the X-Men, makes his Marvel Comics debut with a tale about one of his favorite characters. “This is a story that's pretty personal to me—because I'm me, and it's a Cyclops story; but even more because it's about the ways that superheroes and the stories around them can become lifelines. If I'm going to be really sappy about it (which I absolutely am), I get to give one of my favorite heroes the same kind of touchstone he's been to me over the years,” says Edidin. “I'd say it's a dream come true, but given that I'm the kind of uptight overachiever who overidentifies with Scott Summers in the first place, maybe also a bit of an anxiety dream come true. That said, it's been a blast to get to sit down and play in a sandbox I've spent years cataloguing and analyzing and explaining." Teaming up with Edidin will be artist Tom Reilly, a rising star artist known for his recent work on Immortal Hulk. Don’t miss this grand celebration of Marvel’s legacy that’s sure to be an instant favorite for True Believers old and new.
