This whole wave is so sick.  I can't wait to see them in person.  I pre-ordered with BBTS a while ago for the whole wave, which I've never done before.  Does anyone on here have any experience with them and/or have a guess on when they might ship?

I grabbed my full wave from target on Monday and it is absolutely the best wave I have ever owned.  The pictures just don't do it justice.

Monsterchris I started ordering all of my legends through BBTS a few years ago, as finding the time to hunt for them in stores had become a challenge, and availability became a challenge as well (especially after Toysrus closed). BBTS have always been super reliable.

It doesn't happen often for me but this is one of the rare cases where getting the set/case is worth it when the wave it great across the board. Usually I cherry pick the ones I want and hunt down the BAF parts I need later (or trade/sell the BAF parts if its one I don't want to build). Can't wait to get these in hand myself.

Thank you for that!  The last time I pre-ordered something was on Amazon (can't even remember what it was) and they canceled it after everyone else had sold out.  I've been really worried about that happening again but, as you say, trying to find what I want at a brick and mortar is just too tough anymore.

Im also adding weapon X to my wolverine collection, I wish the helmet head had a gworling (showing teeth) expression, I dont really like the unhelmeted head and will probably have him posed with the helmet head and would have liked it to have a little more expression

The unhelmeted head looks cool, but it definitely sits funny on the body.  I think it is because the peg hole is so far up under the hair.  The Skullbuster was actually kind of a let down for me.  The only new parts are the best and head.  Would make a super easy Uncanny X-Force custom fodder figure though.

I mean to ask do the sunglasses on the non-bubblegum head of Jubilee move up into her forehead, cause if they don't, I may have to swap heads with the build-a-figure Jubilee, she look better with her sunglasses in her hair anyway.

Blink has got some super gappy hips.

It's the same buck they used on the Psylocke figure. It's legs are much more "shapely" than the Kate Bishop buck, but it does indeed suffer from that gap issue. From the looks of it this buck is meant to be the new "thicker" buck to replace the terribly offensive Moonstone buck with all it's curves and angles and stuff sticking out and such. Eeewh!

As far as the wave, it is by far the best X-Wave ever, with representations from several eras, different incarnations of the teams and some lesser utilized, yet awesome villains. Caliban being the only let down, but only because it was the BAF. If it had been a single card it wouldn'ta been such a hard pill to swallow, but just seems like the BAF coulda/shoulda been so much better, and not necessarily a large one like Nimrod, Strong Guy or Warpath, but maybe even just a standard sized one that required a specific sculpt like Wolfsbane or Feral.

Either way, the weakness of the BAF is negated by the fact that I woulda purchased the entire wave anyway regardless of the BAF. Now, if we can just figure out where that damn Wendigo figure is gonna land. My guess is it's gonna end up as some Fans Club exclusive packed with the repainted/redeco versions of the same Hulk and Wolverine that they'll be releasing in the 80 years line.

No, they are glued into the peg hole.  So no movement.

My Professor X was cancelled by amazon and Wal-Mart screwed up my Loki/Glaive pre-order.  I won't know what to do with myself if hasbro drops the ball on this!  ANXIETY. AT. MAX!

I doubt they will, I can’t remember Hasbro Toy Shop ever canceling orders. Backorder, sure, but no outright cancels like Amazon and Walmart.

Wish Beast came with a non-screamy head. And ugh, I so do not want that Wolverine, or any Wolverine. Causes me mental and physical anguish to have to by him to finish any wave.

Agreed. It baffles me that after all this time they couldn't give us a decent unmasked Logan head.
