Isn’t that Infinity War Rocket? We do need a 6” Endgame Rocket though. Nobody seems to be making one which is just blowing my mind. I don’t even care if it’s SHF or Hasbro at this point, I just need my Rocket.

I was thinking the same thing. I was almost certain at one time that they were going to do some sort of Endgame 3 pack with Rocket, Carbo Challenged Thor (can't call him fat & I refuse to call him Bro) and Anti-Climactic Hulk (seriously, did he even throw a punch?), which were all in need of specific sculpts. The only hickup with that is whether they would do them to match the other figures that are inaccurate or would they do them in proper colors? I understand the conundrum on Hasbro's part, but I think they're making a mistake by ignoring it altogether. People are gonna be spending $50+ on SHF and MAFEX versions just to get them and Hasbro is gonna miss out on those sales, cuz $50 vs $20 for basically the same figure, there's really no argument to make. That's the biggest downfall for having exclusive access to the concept art. Sure, your product is out first, but many times it's incorrect. Still, the demand is there for those Quantum suited Avengers and Hasbro's leaving it on the table for these overpriced 3rd parties to lap up. Honestly (and probably sadly) I think if Hasbro would re-release the Hawkeye & Black Widow 2 pack in the correct colors (and include the Captain America head sculpt) and then do a Rocket, Thor & Hulk 3 pack they would cash in big time. If they really wanted to cash in they could release a single pack Cap/IM figure on a larger buck and really make some waves. Just my personal thoughts on the matter. I really do hate to see fans have to resort to these over priced, overrated and pretty damn flimsy imports to complete their displays.

I couldn’t agree more. I feel like Hasbro’s never disappointed me so much as with their offerings for Endgame. I mean, there are literally so many characters in that movie that look exactly like they did in previous movies that Hasbro could even just make a series of 2-packs with one brand new figure and one repack and it would be worthwhile while still making them money. I mean who wouldn’t want a rerelease of Mantis, or IW Doctor Strange, or even Drax and Nebula? There’s so many figures we don’t have from the biggest movie ever, where are the Endgame versions of Rocket, Captain Marvel, Nebula, War Machine MK 6, etc? That’s not even mentioning the redos they need to do, Rescue with more accessories, final battle Thor, Cap and Tony, Hulk in his jumpsuit, normal versions of Black Widow and Hawkeye. Also your point about the quantum suits is so valid it hurts. One of the coolest looks of the movie is severely underrepresented by everyone except Hot Toys. My only hope is that Hasbro realized they did the suits wrong, and so didn’t release Hulk, Rocket, Thor and War Machine. I really hope we get repainted versions of the two suits they’ve already done, along with those 4. They did a pretty decent job with IW, why can’t they do Endgame right?

i agree . it was their biggest movie and while we got most of the figures from it I still feel like it should have been bigger. maybe that's just going off of the movie hype though

Same IW Groot that SHF previously displayed last year so nothing new regarding that fig. & who knows when/if it will ever be issued. Rocket pictured in the display is the IW version that SHF previously released last year so no idea why they are calling it an Endgame version.

They listed it as Endgame but I think your right that its IW.

I hope that Groot comes with arm extensions. And wasn't there an event somewhere in Asia where SHF showed off so many new MCU figs like adult Groot and Bucky and Cap from WS and a Coulson? TF happened to that?!

    • I'd be down for some Iron Man waves. Especially if there were some MCU redos of the earlier armors.
    • off topic:  monron's theory is quite interesting but i think if hawkeye knew about a switch he would've said something after they returned from the time heist. it also seems unlikely to me that Yelena would've kept up the disguise for the whole 5 year blip.  Although it might explain why Widow didn't know who Red Skull was, i would think Natasha would know that was Steve's arch-enemy but Yelena might not.   Ultimately, tho, I  think its more likely that they are considering Yelena as a replacement for Nat, as Tarot suggested. My guess is that if the character is well-received in the BW movie she may end up on the Avengers or perhaps headlining a  BW 2 movie.
    • You should do one with Iceman and name it 'Winter is Coming" 😃
    • Best Newcomer: Executioner- great new sculpt awesome accessories. Great pack as well Remake: Hela- Great accurate update + more accessories than the original, only way it could be better is if it included swords. Re-release: Vibranium Black Panther- it's amazing how much this figure pops up from the display just with a little paint added to an already awesome sculpt. Only category with no contest IMO.  Best Villain: Hela- again, compared to the rest of the releases she get's the most out of her packaging. Best Female: Ghost- She's not on the list but she's my favourite female MCU figure of the year. Mostly out of love for the portrayal and how soon we got her figure compared to Yellowjacket. (Voted Valkyrie since she was my runner-up) New Costume: Iron Patriot- I thought I'd buy it just for completion of an eventual Iron Armor display and Thor's head. I thought it wouldn't replace the MK006 War Machine in my action display. Boy, was I blown away when I got it last night. Strong contender for my personal ToY award.
