Agreed but the new mold he is on makes me excited for the future.

I am definitely not into the gamerverse wave, glad I can skip it. I was excited that there was a joe fixit to then notice it looked off and realized it was game based instead of comics which made that entire wave skippable.  I would love a comic joe fixit. This gamerverse one looks weird, scrunched face, huge hat... head just looks dumb imo. Glad for a new Kang which looks great and Jocasta looks really great and im going to imagine alot are going to get an extra to make her into Lilandra like they did with silver sable. Im not a huge Avengers fan or any of those game figures so easy pass. Into the spiderverse stuff is cool but also a skip. Really cool idea to have stiltmans legs be a part of the army builder to make him taller. Probably one of Hasbros most clever ideas theyve done. 

My main hype moment is the Bring on the bad guys wave. I love this because not only is it much needed to have more villains but its an homage to the bring on the bad guys onslaught wave from Toybiz from back in the day. That was one of my most favorite waves at that time so its bringing back some great feels. And i am ECSTATIC to see a classic Dormammu. I hope hes not the BAF tho. Arcade is a pleasant surprise too. My anticipation for this wave is pretty damn high. Also classic Thanos looks great. Id be very interested to see a comparison of him against the amazing marvel select figure. It will be interesting to see if he will dethrone that classic. I hope he comes with some accessories like alt non finger snapping hand. 

Kind of annoyed that they re-release figures to correct their eff ups on the previous ones. This Gambit is a much better upgrade than the other, with better colors and painted cards and far better headsculpt that plagued the original. I still like the original but if the planets align, i ll be able to get this but being a target exclusive means its going to be near impossible. As for the Rogue, I like that they are correcting the colors since all their 90s xmen released in the past few years were using more orange than yellow which was inaccurate. But that headsculpt, man... what are they thinking? Why make rogue have a resting b-face, but also looks like she gained a few pounds in the face. I cant tell if its a new head or the same head with new hairsculpt and different paint apps. All I know is, its not an improvement. I appreciate the bigger hair which is more accurate but idk, hopefully that changes.. Also realllllly hate those female open hands, her fingers are like a foot long in proportion. Give us new female hands damnit hasbro! Also happy for people for firestar, not my bag, especially with the collar but glad people are finally getting another amazing friend.

Is it just me, or does that Stark head sculpt look like it belongs on an as yet unproduced Mandarin figure? Hopefully we get one in the forthcoming baddies wave. Perhaps with a classic Ultron. Is that wave supposed to cover all corners of the Marvel Universe or primarily the Avengers. If it's all in I bet we could think of enough villains to fill at least three waves. Perhaps they could even to a villains wave per sect (Spider-Man, Avengers/GOTG/F4, X-Men/Deadpool and Doctor Strange/Marvel Knights)

The more and more I see that 3.75 retro line the more I'm sure it's already dead on arrival. I mean, who asked for that? I know, I know, there is at least a small part of the fandom that will partake, but in this day, with what companies like Mattel and NECA and Super7 are doing with the retro stuff, does this really have a place? I think it's a mistake taking this to mass market. Hasbro's gonna end up blowing a lot of money and resources that could have been used on more proven products like ML and GIJC (bye, bye Ghostbusters). I think something like a made to order pre-sale shoulda been done for that instead.

Also, another huge donut for Excalibur fans. What are the chances that we get some representation in the HOX wave(s)?

Well since we know of Dormammu and Arcade so far, and Arcade being a spidey/Xmen villain, I d say the wave is going to be a mixed bag of villains spanning the universe.

To the question of "Does that ML 30TH Anniv classic Thanos now replace the MS version, hell yeah it does! The MS version while classic, was too gigantic to scale properly with the 6' scale ML line. I never bought it for that very reason. And am beyond stoked that we are finally getting a comic classic version of Mr T. I just hope that him being a deluxe version, that he is coming with another alternate evil smirking head sculpt, alternate hands & some sorta power display FXs.

As for the "Bring on the bad guys" wave, I pray  that a classic Perez Ultron is in this wave along with classic powered up Count Nefaria!

While I am beyond excited for the BOTBG wave, does anyone else think they are mainly doing it to fill the gap that the Eternals and Shang-Chi wave would have filled? I mean all we have seen so far are the computer mock ups.

the problem is it could be extremely rushed with some repaints or bad paint/sculpt.

I can see Nefaria, but for some reason I don’t think we’ll get Ultron in this wave. I think he’s popular and desirable enough that they’ll want him to anchor another mixed wave, just like Kang did this time around.

I hope I’m wrong, because Ultron is my favorite Avengers villain and my most wanted villain figure, but I don’t think we’ll see him in this wave. Soon, though, given that we’re getting Jocasta.

That’s possible. However, if those waves are/were anything like other movie waves they were still intended to include 2-4 comic book characters, as well as movie characters. And maybe if the movie characters are taken off the table, the leftovers get folded into one makeshift villains wave. They might not be rushed if they were already on the schedule just planned for different waves.

Yeah I am more than OK with that. Nothing against mcu characters but comic villains are much more to my liking.

They were probably already working on it but yes, I'm sure the movie delays probably pushed it up on the schedule. Wouldn't be surprised if we see some more Fan Channel repaints next year to fill in some gaps as well.

I've got to say, that was pretty genius making Stilt-Man's extender legs coming with an army builder. They created a win-win, provided you want Red Hand Ninjas. And who doesn't?

They explained the digital mock-ups during their presentation. They said they're not doing physical prototypes anymore. As a post COVID change, they're now only doing digital prototypes and paint masters. Showing us digital renditions isn't indicative of rushing. That's just what we're gonna see for early previews now. I think it's kind of a bummer, but I get it. We probably won't see physical pictures for stuff until the product shots come out when they go up for preorder.

So Stormbreaker is $160?
I have all of the other Marvel "Roleplay" things. All the helmets, Cap's Shield, Mjolnir. All of them have been $100 each.

But now you are telling me that I have to pay an extra $60 for what, a long handle? I just got a talking animatronic Deadpool head that interacts with my smart phone for $100 but Stormbreaker is $160. And it doesn't even come in one piece. For an extra $60 I think they could afford a longer box.

wow so I called my local EB today to pre-order some of the new Gamerverse figs, Falcon, Jocasta, Thunderstrike and Kang and they say they are slated to be released on October 1st, that wasy quick wonder if that's actually going to hold.

I like the idea, it's basically a more advanced version of Digibashing, also it cuts down on materials

Nah, i was thinking of all the trouble folks had getting Worthy Cap, 80th anniv cap, the comic Thanos exclusive,  and the Corvus Glaive 2-pack.  But obviously people's experiences can vary quite a bit based on the stores around you locally.  Since Mako is in WM's home state of Arkansas it doesn't really surprise me much that targets aren't as good at stocking exclusives as WM there.  And i did mention Red Hulk and GI Joe as being real problems for Target (don't collect NECA Turtles so i can't speak to them) but for me Deadly Origins Widow, Starforce Carol, Stan Lee, Starboost Iron Man all seemed pretty easy to get.  Likewise for the Star Wars Black series target excluisves that i can think of.  

Ya, those MCU legends Walmart exclusives never seemed to exist in the stores. All just sold second hand on eBay by scalpers.

Probably will buy a Gambit and Rogue for my X-Men TAS display. Dawn of X I feel is too new in comics to compel me to collect in figure form, but that Magneto looks gorgeous.

I try to limit my collection to X based characters, but if I didn't I would be all over characters like that new Thanos, Falcon, and Kang.

Seeing that Jocasta figure my first thought was that it could be a real quick retool as Danger.

At this time I would imagine we would get at least 2 repainted reissues of worthy cap was I wrong. Well we got one but for UK and that’s hardly counts.

I’m afraid it’s Pizza Spidey Mold, just digital version of it looks much better and more defined than the actual figure mold they release. Hope I’m wrong tho.

Definitely not, that new upper torso is a dead giveaway. This new one has more of a V shaping.  I’m hoping they use it for the upcoming vision too. 
 

after careful inspection the upper torso is definitely new sculpt. You can tell by the sculpting in the pecs, upper abdominal and arms. They may have reused the lower torso but it looks like original sculpt.

Excited to finally get Firestar!!! Looks like the body is a straight repaint of the gray suit Black Widow. Kind of a disappointment because the collar looks way too big. I would have thought they would have gone with the Deadly Origins Black Widow body instead.

To put my 2 cents worth, this actually looks similar to the original Spidey buck that they used on the Superior (Otto) Spider-Man, before they extended it for the first Pizza Spidey. Of course, the legs are different legs and the torso has been smoothed out around the butterfly joints.
