  1. If it's only one more wave I think some of the suggestions above are great. In a perfect world, though, we'd get another wave, and some fan-channel exclusive multipacks and such (I suspect we very well might get some of these for the holiday season): AoA Wave 2: Rogue - Necessary to fill out her "team" of X-Men Magneto - One of the most major players of the storyline. Sinister - As noted, pretty much the 2nd most important villain of the arc. Sabretooth - Again, necessary for filling out that particular team of X-Men, plus he goes with Wild Child. Pack in alternate Blink head (AoA hairdo). Bishop - Not the most inspired design but another key player in the storyline. Nightcrawler - A bit of an odd choice but he's one that had some crossover with the 616 Gambit - As fun as some of the other designs were, he ended up being the only member of the "X-Ternals" that mattered.... BAF: Abyss - Never before seen, and I think Marvel could do some interesting stuff with the build. But then I'd supplement it all with: Fan-Channel 2-Pack: AoA Cyclops and AoA Havok Fan-Channel Exclusive: Holocaust/Nemesis re-release/retool Fan-Channel or Walgreen's Exclusive: Legion (w/ Multiple heads and FX pieces) I know this basically leaves out the entire "Quicksilver/Gold Team" of AoA X-Men but honestly I'd rather have a "Rogue/Blue Team" that's complete than partially complete versions of both. If we're talking "pipe-dream super perfect world where Hasbro is determined to really crank this stuff out" I would add: AoA Wave 3: Storm Quicksilver Iceman Dead Man Wade (Gotta get your Deadpool in!) Shadowcat Mystique Angel BAF: Colossus Fan-Channel 2-Pack: Dazzler and Exodus Fan-Channel 2-Pack: Banshee and Madri Fan-Channel 2-Pack: Tony Stark and MIkhail Rasputin (Just so we can have all the Horsemen).
  2. Hasn't this guy gotten two or three figures by now? And as far as I can tell he's barely a presence in the comics. I get that he's a relatively easy repaint and symbiotes sell, but come on....
  3. He said Fan-First Monday...didn't specify that it was THIS fan-first Monday. Could just as easily be next week, or got shifted to Friday sometime after that tweet, or whatever. Point being the guy didn't say "tomorrow!" Or maybe there's a press release coming later in the day. They're not likely to put up SDCC Preorders on Hasbro Pulse this far out in advance.
  4. It's a bit harder for genuinely limited exclusives (like SDCC stuff) to leak early compared to stuff that's hitting mass retail, since solicitations for sales aren't getting sent out to a bunch of people in advance, and entries aren't going to show up in retailer computers, etc....
  5. I'm guessing at this point: Woulda-Been-SDCC Comic-Based Exclusive - Hellfire Club Inner Circle: Sebastian Shaw, Classic White Queen, Classic Black Queen (Swappable Selene/Jean Grey heads), Harry Leland (Modified Kingpin Mold), Donald Pierce Third Troop Builder - Hellfire Club Soldier And probably an X-Men movie-based set of some kind.
  6. Well, a couple or three different things are likely going to happen here: 1. A lot of stuff is probably getting delayed. So there might not really BE much/any "new" stuff to show for the rest of the year, because the stuff they've already revealed isn't even going to start selling through until social distancing measures are lessened. For example, we probably don't see any product for The Eternals until next year, now. 2. They'll just reveal stuff by releasing it to the websites/press/Hasbro Pulse, the same way they've been doing the Fan Channel exclusives. 3. Reveals get pushed back to NYCC (if that happens). The whole market has been disrupted. This is not going to be any kind of a "normal" year and I'd bet that what we've seen is pretty much all we get. And even some of that is likely to slip into next year at this point.
  7. I dunno that I see them putting out a second Black Widow Wave before they've even really sold the first. Given all the cancelled Amazon preorders it seems like Hasbro is holding back the wave (though undoubtedly some has leaked out). I suspect we'll get this initial sprinkling of the Black Widow Wave, then it'll all but disappear until closer to the new release date. But the lists already given are pretty good.
  8. Yeah, nothing would stop them from previewing it. Though personally I suspect that if they postpone the campaign they'll postpone the unveiling too. Just so it doesn't feel like "old news" by the time the campaign goes live. The longer it's "out there" between unveiling and actually running the campaign, the longer collectors have to talk themselves out of shelling out for it.
  9. Guess it depends, pretty sure comic-Spider-Gwen isn't all that much younger than 616 Pete (if at all). Spider-Verse Gwen is a late teen, though. Either way it's a cool picture.
  10. As for HasLab: It could very easily be seen as in poor taste to offer a high-priced marquee item during a time of massive unemployment and people worrying about family members' health and livelihoods. And have a far lower chance of succeeding/meeting it's goals if a lot of the buying audience is dealing with economic difficulties brought on by the Virus.
  11. I thought that only applied to third-party sellers. The implication was that stuff Amazon was selling directly would be unaffected, but "fulfilled by amazon" stuff would be outta luck. I'm still seeing the Avengers Gamerverse and AoA waves for preorder on my wishlist, but the Widow wave is either dried up or suddenly going for $30 a figure. The existing preorders I had for Winter Soldier, Yelena, and Taskmaster are still on my open orders and the "arriving by" date hasn't changed...yet.
  12. My wife continues to joke that the New Mutants movie doesn't actually exist and that the trailers were only created to troll people. It will become the Half-Life 3 of movies.
  13. Wouldn't be so sure of that, given that at least one person specifically mentioned "animated series" and "616" as separate things. 616 would be Changeling, like Benn said. Unless they mean the Exiles version which was from yet another alternate Earth...and looks basically identical to the AoA version.
  14. There will probably be some delays and even spottier-than-usual distribution, yes. Hasbro has already acknowledged in shareholder calls and whatnot that the COVID-19 pandemic could have significant (negative) impacts on their business this year.
