I really love the Iron Man in this packaging. I still have the last 2 they released in box on a book shelf. Everything from the graphics to the figures come together in a really sharp presentation. Would love all of the main armors to be able to show off this way. 

Like to see some IM2 love especially the Suitcase armor.

Bruce and Widow look great as well. Honestly at this point I'd rather get the Bruce's and new armors than redos of figures they've already done numerous times. But I guess they have to milk the MCU from when the movies were good as long as they can.

I'm less excited about Cap since I've owned the Winter Soldier version since it first came out. But I would like to see if they can get Chris Evan's headsculpt right finally. 

Anyway, looks like a good start to a long overdo MCU wave

I really dislike the dark blue blast effects for Iron Man. They're supposed to be bursts of energy but they look like they're anything but glowing.

Plus, these are a particular mismatch for MCU Iron Man figures...

Wait- these are coming boxed? I thought they were supposed to be a "wave"- are they still shipping in an assorted case, or just as individual items?

I'd imagine it'll be similar to the Black Panther wave last year, the general retail releases will get shipped out in a case together and we may see one or two store exclusives to tie in with them that will ship independently.

I guess it's just me but I see no need for a Mark Rufalufalo figure. Other than lucking his way into the MCU he's a pretty much just another drab Hollywood type who hasn't done anything good outside the MCU since ever. He's literally just a figure of an an actor in High School Science Teacher clothes. I'll happily have to take a pass but like I said before though. Just keep mining from the good old days. Maybe eventually we'll get a Whiplash/Crimson Dynamo figure out of it. Or maybe some updated Hammer Drones. I will admit though. If they make a Justin Hammer figure I might have to bite. He was just so good in that role.

Yeah gotta say Mark Ruffalo History Teacher figure is a real cut there, sure tons of MCU collectors are probably siked to finally have a new Mark figure, but it's so damn blah, just literally a figure of an actor, when the MCU figures still need to many missing characters, I hope the fans who might want this are happy, Iron MKII is another blah to me, just a repaint of the MKIII not much was put into that, Black Widow though is a really nice update, the previous version of this figure was a zillion years ago and deserved to get a good new release, since the older figure had a really odd face and was before the face scan tech was at it's current state, but I'm not even sure if the body is new?, looks like it might just be that same figure from like 2014 from the head down. we have not seen the rest of this wave, but Stealth Suit cap will likely look so much better then the 2014 one which was pretty much not even a movie figure, I guess if this all is as rumoured Thor (Dark World), Nick Fury, Civil War IM and Civil War Spidey should be shown at Hasbro fest or w/e.

I would rather see that if they offer a figure that is pretty much only a "likeness", that they don't go timid and offer nothing to go with.  Ruffalo as Banner offers an opportunity for diorama accessories that can be used in lots of other ways:  a computer workstation or a chemistry station. Or computer gear like a tablet or a laptop.  Just the figure alone is no grab.........there's no draw here.

I have the same feelings on Bruce that most people do, I'm glad to see him being released and I'm going to get him but he's a pretty boring figure all things considered. I'd have much preferred if he was a 2-pack release with the Hulkbuster MK 2 or maybe even Wong or Tony from Infinity War.

The MK 2 is very welcome and expected, I'm glad to be getting it. Again, I'd have preferred it to be maybe packed with a brand new MK 4 or Whiplash since it's just a repaint, but I'll take it where I can get it. 

Widow looks great, I may pick her up but I'm honestly not sure. She's a big upgrade from the 2014 figure with those double jointed elbows and the face print but honestly already having 2 of the previous release, I'm not feeling a super strong urge to replace her, that was a really good figure at the time. Maybe with better legs but they didn't change those on the new one.

I'm looking forward to seeing the rest, Fury and Spidey I'm 100% in for, whatever they do with those is going to be better than the old one no matter what. Iron Man, Thor and Cap I'm less sure of, it'll depend on how much of an upgrade those figures get honestly.

Agree! Why DARK blue, if they're gonna go with blue at all?
