  1. I can only hope they will re-release him down the line as a single figure, I can't keep buying figures I don't want or need.
  2. That means my X-cutioner should arrive in the very near future, awesome!
  3. Ah, okay, well its been forever since they made a Skaar, and he had that terrible articulation. So I welcome him back into my collection.
  4. Not at all the wave I was expecting, but happy to see Ikaris, Red Widow, Ka-Zar and Wolfbane made the cut. I imagine the next Avengers?/Mixed? wave will have some of the other characters announced by DMB last year. Gotta have Nefaria! Zabu is a nice surprise and much, much better than the SDCC exclusive version I sold off years ago. I assume the knife tease is for Shanna... wonder if they will cover her head-to-toe in a body suit since her classic outfit is no longer PC. Original Zemo is a nice surprise, just wish we could buy him individually.
  5. Don't forget about the Avengers Wave Displaying Model Behavior listed in his big announcement late last year. All the Wolverine box sets he said were coming have come to pass already. The wave consisted of Count Nefaria, Herald of Thunder Thor, Heroes Reborn Iron Man, Ka-Zar, Ikarus and Iron Man 300 (which I think is actually going to be Ultimo the baf). Of course that's probably not enough figures to make him, so maybe that Wasp and Red Widow are also in the wave. Then again, these could all be totally wrong or a wave that will be released later in the year, so we'll see tomorrow.
  6. So here's my theory. IF, we do get an Avengers wave with baf announcement this Tuesday, I predict the baf will be Ultimo. Not a bad choice in my opinion. A classic Iron Man villian, which of course means he has come into conflict with the Avengers many times over the years. His height won't be the towering height he has in the comics, but still, it would be awesome to have another villian to add to our shelves. A 12"ish Goliath is probably a more safe bet, but from what I have been able to peice together, I think it's Ultimo.
  7. Yeah, don't they usually release a movie wave closer to the premier date? I think you're right.
  8. See, my thinking follows that the more comic figures released - because of less MCU product and a higher count of figures released for the year like 2023 was - the more likely we will get deep cuts as you put it. MCU movies and D+ series are in themselves marketing for MCU figures, not even counting all the actual advertising, PR and movie tie-ins that lead up to a release. I have a strong feeling Hasbro doesn't have to worry as much about product advertising and sales, due to increased awareness and intent to purchase, when their figures are MCU based (especially if the film/series is good). In a weird way, a line that was started as a comic-based line, has partially morphed into a support for movies, television series, cartoons and video games. That was inevitable I suppose. There was a few movie based figures in the old ToyBiz line, but those were usually the peg warmers and most maligned figures by collectors. Anyway, I just feel 2024 may be our best chance to get some of those more obscure comic figures for a while. All these movie scripts, castings, and production schedules are getting back on track, so a large amount of MCU product will be headed our way over the coming years, and therefore MCU Legends figures. So the time is now for getting Marrina, Excalibur Rachel Summers, Mimic, Mr. X, Exodus, Casandra Nova, Stingray, Jack Of Hearts, Starfox, the Shroud, Gargoyle, Son Of Satan, Overmind, Swordsman, Mantis, Immortus, Graviton, Magus, Korvac, Nitro, Attuma, Maelstrom, Baron Mordo, Nightmare, Umar, Shuma Gorath, Titania, Gladiator (Melvin Potter), Death Stalker, the Owl, Bi-beast, Zzzzax, the U-Foes, the Gremlin, Moonwolf, Meteor Man, Cardiac, Stegron, Spot, Will-O-Wisp, the Melter, original Blizzard, Unicorn, Whiplash/Blacklash, Firebrand, Justin Hammer, Balder, Heimdall, Kurse, Airwalker, Tyr, Zeus, Hades, Eternity, the Living Tirbunal and all the other unreleased characters people have been hoping for on this board over the years. Heck, I'm even hoping for the Great Lakes Avengers!
  9. DP Wave announcement seems likely. I just hope we get at least a comic wave announced or at least confirmed. One of the nice things for comic ML collectors is the decreased amount of films and D+ shows this year. It makes room for a lot more comic based figures all around. And here's hoping this year is like 2023, with a huge number of figures released. Once the MCU gets cooking again, I have a feeling we will be flooded with MCU figs and comic based ones will suffer. Fingers crossed!
  10. That would be great. But I wonder if there is the will among collectors right now for another really giant/expensive Haslab. I can't see old FFF being a deluxe figure or even a baf at this point. My hope is for a properly scaled Dragon Man, where he is at his original height of about 16 feet (approx 16 "). Now that would and could be a baf or deluxe.
  11. Well, I certainly hope it happens. We got short shrift back when the first iron man movie blew up and birthed the MCU. That would have been a great time to give us IMs rogues gallery. But 2024 is here, and the technology to make great figures has grown leaps and bounds. So in addition to obvious figures like Crimson Dynamo, Mandarin, Titanium Man, there are lots of classic IM villians that would be perfect in a wave like this. Justin Hammer would be great on the suit buck, Firebrand, Unicorn of course, the Melter, Madame Masque on a decent female buck, original Blizzard - outfit and attitude are so much cooler than that T Bolts character that looks like a Christmas ornament, lol. Of course Titanium Man would need to be a deluxe or baf in a different wave. And a new Iron Monger fits that bill as well. A great two pack of the Blood Brothers would be welcome too... a couple of Thanos lackeys IM battled early in purple puss'es villainous career. Basically, without even getting into which IM armors to include, there are a bunch of great villians to include in this type of wave. Hope Hasbro is listening.
