I know this is kind of a dumb question but I never get build a figures but I really like this Dynamo. Would you guys recommend buying the whole wave and selling off the unwanted figures (I just need winter soldier and crossbones) or just bite the bullet and buy the baf by itself? Bafs usually go for so much I'm not sure which is best.

Here's some pics of the new movie Black widow.

She can store her batons on her back, but there's just no way to cross them and the result is the baton gets bent, unless there is a way to make them cross that I don't know about.

and without the batons

This picture is just to show the height of this Black Widow is the same as the Infinity War one.  I used it to make a custom Maria Hill as I never liked the official one.

It’s good sculpt but I think grey color is way too bright, at least in trailers it seems to look more dark.

Another option could be to try looking up the remaining BAF pieces individually on eBay.

True, that is an option. My only concern is that I've seen pieces going for so much it's almost worth buying the whole figure, lol. That's definitely something I can try though, thanks!

I'm checking prices of some recent BAFs like Super-Skrull and Demogoblin, as well as bigger-sized figures like Smart Hulk and the prices are appropriate. Limbs usually don't go for higher than 10 bucks, and some auction listings start really cheap so you just gotta be lucky. I think buying four pieces separately might not be too expensive.

Maybe buying the entire wave and selling the figures you don't want could balance costs more, but by buying the pieces separately you might save in all the hassle of selling the figures.

If you can get a really good deal on the figures it might be worth it to buy them and re-sell them wihout the BAF, but it seems pretty unlikely otherwise. It largely depends on which figures, if any, are sought after. I just wouldn't assume, on average, that you can get more than $5 each re-selling them online. It costs about $8 to ship a figure to most places in the US (assuming you're in the US), so if you sell it for $5 plus the $8 shipping, it's barely a deal for the buyer without the BAF part. If you're paying $20/figure and trying to unload five at $5 each, you're basically paying $75 for the BAF, which is probably a bad deal, since $80 to $100 tends to be the price range for relatively new, highly sought-after BAFs from waves with generally less desirable figures (think Kingpin). Crimson Dynamo feels more like a $40 BAF to me, bought assembled. Maybe not initially, but for sure once the dust settles.

Honestly, the two figures you want seem likely to me to be the best sellers of the wave, and I wouldn't be surprised to see the rest of the wave hitting Walmart, Gamestop, and Amazon clearance pricing after a few months. If you can get the figures new for around $10 each, and then sell them off for $20 to $30 total, that's probably the cheapest you'll get the BAF.

I guess the best thing would be to take my time and watch eBay. I think that sounds the best route for sure. Thanks for the input!

I'm definitely just going to wait it out and either buy the parts I need or just get an assembled one and trade off my extras. Like you said, I'd have to come across a ludicrously cheap deal to come out on top if I sold them off. I appreciate the reply to my question. Thanks.

Thank you for the clarification. Yeah I saw those images when I looked up pictures of him since this new one I wasnt familiar with and the previous I originally thought to be just a kitbash or random made up design. Didnt take long by looking up pics of him to find I was wrong on both accounts. Wish we'd get a classic version of him. New one is cool and all but would love the original. Also while looking up pics of him, I realize there are ALOT of different looks for the character.  

Years ago they made a 6" Crimson Dynamo; articulation was actually pretty good, but the paint flakes a bit (on the one I have). But I hear you, we don't need to kid ourselves...we all KNOW which version we really want! :)

".... Dang I just want a classic version apparently. Also bummer, I was really looking forward to seeing him in the movie. Hes also not very 'crimson' in this iteration. Maroon or Brown Dynamo. 😞 "

I HATE when they do that with red! It makes no sense to me. Almost like red is too "comic-booky" or something? Who knows. I will say in this case, in the comic cover I've seen, this particular model did seem to lean more towards "brown" than anything else.

Its still ugly though.

Im wondering how hard it might be to switch the baton holder on her back to another figure? Would come in handy for a few figures I can think of

Yeah, the sheer amount of Crimson Dynamos and Crimson Dynamo suits there are is ridiculous. I like this BAF design since I'm not a big fan of the classic/retro Crimson Dynamo design. However, I wouldn't have minded if we got that one instead since it's more iconic. I personally would have preferred if we got modern Crimson Dynamo, since he's not too big of a departure from the retro look.

Think he's got a ways to go before he gets anywhere near the amount Stark has in his armory. Good thing is, that makes the "classic" armor appearance as a Marvel Legend, just over the horizon. Package him with a Titanium Man BAF and call it a day!

Seems attached very tight.  Might be hard to do.

Just Crossbones & Spymaster for me when these hit. I'll get Winter soldier later in the yr as he is not a big priority at the moment.

It is. I never liked the body used for Maria Hill so I made that.
