We did get Hulk, Rhino & Kingpin on the large cards after all so it's possible 🤷‍♂️

I agree, they will make more use out of this cardback. I can only hope Graviton (use the Nefaria head scuplt... they really do look THAT similar) Unicorn, Melter, Firebrand, Blizzard, Ghost, Justin Hammer, among others. The only drawback is that we still won't be getting larger figures like Titanium Man and Crimson Dynamo with the retro line, they would most likely be BAFs in a regular line. Mandarin where are you?!

There is a rumored Hulkbuster coming. i wouldn't be surprised if it's on the retro card.

I’ve gotta get the shulkie. I wonder how tall the figure is? I hope she’s at least as tall as, say, Colossus.🤔 And the broken gun accessory is a great addition!

Yes my worry is that as amazing as she looks they have to do something to muck it up. At this point it looks like the height is the most likely place. Personally I don't think she should be around Colossus height. He's a bit tall at 7'5". I don't think she's even supposed to be 7 foot. At least not this version of her. Traditionally she edges out by a few inches Herc and Thor who are both currently on the perfect sized models IMO. If they could get her around that height it would be the definitive She-Hulk.

Still blows me away that we haven't gotten She Hulk with the FF logo. 

Quinjet is most likely a Pym accessory. Said it earlier but it got cut off of my comment. But yeah, hopefully with a deluxe Hank or a Yellowjacket. 

I know I was complaining about the amount of IMs, cause I wanted one or two more villains, but all three look really good. Gold is a must for my OG Avengers set up. JRJr version is a must cause I love that Armor Wars 2 look and never got the previous one cause it was too small. The 20/24 look is really cool. I have no solid connection to it though. I may have to pass on it. If this were a baf I'd get it no problem, but I have to stop buying stuff that's going into storage after an initial bit of time on my end table.

I wonder if the plan is to eventually do an updated Iron Patriot on the Pentagon body.

The previous version was on Extremis, but that's technically incorrect since Osborn made it out of an older armor when he confiscated Tony's assets. 

well, according to rumors, Iron Patriot is coming this year.

Still mad at this wave, yada yada, but I had to get Blacklash and Neferia, but I said I was gonna pass on Shulk but I caved like the sucker I am, I need all the Shulks, sooo I behaved poorly and pre-ordered her, mad at this wave, but still happy to get two brand new characters and another She-Hulk, cause I need all my ladies. 

But Mandarin some time in the next century Hasbro. 😔I will forgive you this one time for stinking up what could have been a magnificent wave full of much wanted figgies.

I hate that I love you Marvel Legends. 🤨

Really? I thought She-Hulk was the only must-have in this wave. Of course Blacklash and Nefaria were strong contenders and I did decide against the two older Iron Men. But this is hands down the best version of She-Hulk they've ever made. And considering the last classic She-Hulk they did in the A-Force wave was a T-Rex arms weirdo I thought everyone wanted this. Of course as I always say everyone has their taste. And as usual I'm almost certain Hasbro did something to screw up what should be the perfect She-Hulk figure. I'm guessing with the really awkward scale of size and height of the Animated X-Men wave that height might be the issue here. But as you say a new lady character is never really a bad thing. Unless a better one has been made as in the case of Animated Jean and Storm. But I think this She-Hulk has set the bar. Though I will hold my breath until I either get it in hand or until a trusted reviewer gives us the full skinny.

PS about Mandarin. I know in general everyone is kind of upset because Mandarin once again got passed over. But what makes it even worse is I was just reading up on the Tin Man armor and found out that it was specifically designed with defenses against Mandarin's rings. What better time to do a Mandarin figure if not now? I'm hoping maybe there might be a companion deluxe figure to this wave that has a bunch of power effects. I would shell for that.

I'm assuming Mandarin will come with the Haslab Fin Fang Foom for the Year of the Dragon. (Feel like they just can't pass up) Still think they jumped the gun with the Mark 9 from the Armor Wars 2 that would be a natural with Foom as well.

Ended up ordering all but Mark 20, even though the figure look magnificent.

Rhino, Kingpin and Hulk are all much more popular characters than Titanium Man and Crimson Dynamo, however. If you look at the list of characters that have gotten deluxe releases, it's usually either a fairly popular character, someone with a media tie-in like a movie or TV show, or a character that's mostly reuse of an existing body (like the recent Detroit Steel). 

I think someone like Titanium Man would most likely be a BAF unless they could find a way to make him out of someone they've already made.

Yeah the She-Hulk is the first time I think they did majority pretty spot on for her, the down fall for me is her face this time, not so sure about that, the modern ripped shirt Shulk had superior face sculpts IMO, but yes I think it seems to be a very nice Shulk, I just intially am only slightly thrilled on more of the same characters, Ideally I always want someone new.

I can just really hope Mandarin pops up as a fan channel, deluxe, whatev whatev, just give us a Mandarin, I'm not going to take the whole excuse that it's a potentially offensive figure, there are so many different looks for him, just pick one and go, it's IM's greatest foe, it's just pathetic at this point.
