  1. Definitely agree with this. As for why there is an argument, it comes down to two complaints: 1. "I don't want to buy figures for characters i don't want just to complete the BAF - why can't he just be sold separately??" This neglects that of course you CAN buy the BAF separately on ebay etc but it will cost at least $60 in most cases, and often considerably more. People like to point to deluxe figures but in most cases those are priced lower because they are repaints of an existing BAF (that is, the tooling costs were already part of an earlier wave's budget). MODOK and Archangel's wings are the main exceptions that i can think of. 2. "I don't care about the BAF. Why don't they just skip it and give me more accessories instead??" This neglects the fact that without the BAF you wouldn't get nearly as many obscure characters receiving figures - it would be even more Wolverines, Deadpools, Spideys, Caps, Venoms and Iron Men than we receive now. It would be more like McFarlane's line with its endless Batmen. (which, i like the line, but sure wish the character selection was a bit more diverse). And of course if you don't like having random pieces for a BAF you don't intend to complete, just sell them or trade them. Sidenote: the alternative gimmick to BAFs seems to be retro packaging, which while not going quite as deep into the catalog of characters, at least tends to provide some non A-listers. Of course this has all been rehashed a million times before, but people like to complain/vent so i expect it to come up at least once a year. I think people should be happy that hasbro at least attempts to rerelease BAFs for more well-known characters more often, that is a a huge improvement - trying to complete figures like Rhino or Sandman is a pretty tough task now.

  2. I've seen the Shang-Chi wave in its entirety multiple times at multiple walmarts, plus a handful of the wave at Target (and a few Katys). Hellfire Club arrived today, beautiful set and great packaging, definitely a good value for the price although it was a long wait. Still, since its not often everybody gets a chance to buy the sdcc set, i'm not gonna complain about the delay. I'm guessing it will be a similar scenario this year, hopefully they will come up with something as compelling as this set. Now we need Leland and Mastermind

  3. I think Hasbro has hit the perfect divide of BAFS and Deluxe figures. Some characters that have a strong enough of a presence like WarMachine, Red Hulk, Toxin, Archangel get very nice deluxe releases that sell phenomenally, then the more obscure or less likely to get solo releases or are harder to fit into standard packaging like Man Thing, Wendigo, Sugar Man, Strong Guy get the BAF treatment. A either way we get to choose to chase the BAF or get the deluxe really it’s win/ win. I really don’t get why there is even an “argument”. Don’t get the whole MCU vs Comic “ fight” either. We are in a Legends Golden Age, with more releases now than in any point in Legends history. It seems to me we are all winning.

  4. It was $350 with shipping included. They didn't charge separately for shipping.

  5. Shown below via Hasbro's Ryan Ting are some new package shots for the upcoming Marvel Legends Infinity Saga Age Of Ultron Quicksilver figure. With these new images we get our first look at the side of the packaging for the Infinity Saga line. It looks like the side will feature artwork that when you put the packaging for all 10 figures in the line together it will form one big collage image. We saw them do this with the 80th Anniversary sub-line as well. 4 sets in the line have been revealed already with Avengers: Age of Ultron Quicksilver, Avengers Endgame Warrior Thor, Avengers: Endgame Iron Man Mark 85 & Thanos Two-Pack and Thor Movie Odin. That leaves 6 sets left to be revealed which should include the following: Set 1 - IM1 - Mark III - F0184 Set 2 - Unknown (likely store exclusive) Set 6 - IM1 - Iron Monger - F0218 - $69.99 Set 7 - THR3 - Surtur - F0189 - $49.99 Set 8 - AV4 (likely store exclusive) Set 9 - IM3 (likely Amazon exclusive) We do expect the remaining 6 sets in this line to be revealed over the course of May with the next one to be revealed as early as this Friday, May 14.
