Looks like She-Hulk used Hawkeyes discount at the purple store. 

This wave looks great. For me, every  figure would be a must buy if I didn’t already buy every MCU figure.

The next D+  Wave though... old boring guy cosplaying as Loki, a couple near immovable robed guys and a duck w/ a disembodied head. I mean.. Howard was in a end credit scene but HE gets a Legend? @Hogun has a legitimate gripe.. at least even the MCU Warriors Three were in 3 movies but have no Legend representation yet. But a duck only seen in a few clips gets a .. well.. a statue but it’s more than some have gotten.

then the Zombies.. if Hasbro were going to go all in and give us say.. 10 or 12 Zombie versions then an argument could be made that they are a sub one within a sub line. But I fear these next two will it and then what was the point, 3 figures isn’t enough to display a zombie horde. 

 

 

That is why I'm not in love with the entire What If? aspect of ML. Basically, they can just pull all these random, single or seldom used characters that are virtually non-existent to the basic Marvel Mainstream and they take up space and resources that coulda/shoulda been used for long wanted characters such as the Warriors Three. Sure they have their fans and they will have there niche following but they all just exist in their own little subset of the Marvel Universe and don't really fit in any kind of display, unless the display is specifically for What If?. I dunno, I just avoid them pretty much altogether. I enjoyed the What If? comics and occasionally even a few of the Disney+ episodes but it only really just opens up a can of worms that should just be a one-off type situation, but ends up lingering way too long.

Totally agree about the What If? figures. I debated on them before eventually getting the first wave but they don’t fit unless like you said, i devoted a section to just What If? In the end, I don’t really care for any of them except the one I thought was the biggest waste at first: Zombie Cap. 

From what they’ve shown of the next What If? crop of figures I don’t care much for those either. Red Skull, as far as I can tell has no designation other than the box telling me so that he is from that show. For me, Howard is a waste on every level. The Zombies are again the only potential highlight but again, the problem becomes there probably won’t be enough of them. And they aren’t the comic Zombies so they may be even more limited. I’m really hoping this experimentis done after what they’ve got planned.
