I would have thrown in either two comic figures or added either MCU Thor characters that haven't been done yet like Heimdall in his armour or other characters from the movie like Sif

Its impossible to please everyone, but it does seem that the consensus here is they could've picked way better figures to make the wave. Comic accurate Beta Ray Bill and the fan favorite Sif from years ago would really have bumped up this wave, or maybe a comic accurate Executioner.  Did they ever do an MCU first appearance Thor (the one time he wore his helmet)? I'm still waiting on how they work in Warriors Three. Bottom line is, once again I see that the fans have better ideas than anything else. Or, Hasbro, look at it this way...we're saying "Take My Money". If you listen to us, that is.

Yeah I mean you are right about the online buying, but it's still a bit different, if you buy online you can still see what you are getting without opening, which means if it's horrific you can send it back, but you have to actually open and compromise the packing to see what yer getting here, I actually don't pay attention to what's going on with transformers so I had no idea they did this except for those brown box figures they sell which I thought were just mystery packs ha. I'd also be worried about Swaps with these boxes, you might buy a Thor and get a old chewed up Snoopy figure. I guess you could just return that if that was the case, we know big box retailers don't care if there was a musty sock in a legends box they still take it back.

Well with those Brown Boxes aka Generations Selects they have a massive seal on them which is quite easy to see if the package has been tampered with, they should be doing that with all closed boxes to be honest.

Maybe they don't want our money....

I found Ravenger Thor at Walmart on Sunday and tried to buy him but it got locked up at the self checkout and I was told I could not buy this yet. I shrugged my shoulders and said whatever. Hasbro had their chance to sell me this figure and they blew it so I am not interested in this wave.

That ice is getting pretty thin Hasbro. Mattel has been winning me over with Masterverse anyways.

I liked how they used to do movie waves with wave one being based off the comics then we would get a movie based wave two and then a mixture in wave three. Hasbro has gone to s..t in recent years.

when were those days? can't remember that happening during hasbro's ML run.  My recollection is that movies waves were always a mix of movie and comic figures, until they starting experimenting with all-mcu waves starting with Black Panther wave 2, then Endgame wave 3, followed by some D+ waves and now Thor L & T.

I do think they used to make more of an effort to get out comic versions of characters that would be appearing in movies, beforehand, so in that sense i agree.  Mostly i'm thinking of various spider-man figures that came out prior to Spider-verse, but there are other pure mcu examples as well, i'm just blanking on them at the moment (need more coffee)

If I remember correctly I think it was with Captain America Civil War.

you may be right.  I do recall the Giant-Man wave being a mix of comics and mcu (with Cap, Black Panther, and i think Iron Man being the mcu figures, along with the BAF)  but can't remember what wave preceded it.  They did not do an all mcu wave afterwards to my recollection though.

I had to go back and relook at the ML Civil War waves,

Wave One was comic based.

Wave Two was a mixture and not a complete movie wave like I thought.

Wave Three about the same.

I would have liked them to do a one wave comic based Thor wave released first giving us Skurge and maybe the warriors three. Then give us this movie wave as a follow up wave 2.
