  1. yep!! $17.99 in Texas. i cant believe it!! just last year the IM and WM were $12.96 at wal-mart. WTF!!! talk about sticker shock!!! i also noticed that the green lantern classics were marked at $17.99. wow, i hope the 2012 MLs wont have this price point. shame TRU and Hasbro, shame

     

    you hope a figure that comes WITH an extra part wont cost as much as a figure WITHOUT an extra part?... :/

     

     

    yes, i know , wishful thinking. hope springs ever eternal. at this rate, the Terrax series will cost $25 a pop.

  2. I know we're all excited about what's coming up, but looking back AAALLLLLLLlllll the way back to series 1 to now, which wave offered the best characters, sculpts, variants and originality? I was reorganizing my shelves and for the most part I have them wave by wave and not necessarily w/ their respective teams or enemies. That said, I'll give my top 3:

     

    1. Toy Biz Wave 6 - Juggernaut, Deadpool, Cable, Wolverine, Phoenix, Thomas Jane Punisher, Dark Phoenix & "original" Cable. I think it's a no brainer. Yeah it's a bit X-Men heavy but overall, I love this line. Deadpool, Wolverine, Phoenix & the Punisher are near perfect likeness figures w/ few faults. Juggernaut is amazing except for the giant monkey arms and if there is a weak link, it would be Cable but even he looks good. Dark Phoenix is tan excellent choice for a variant and the old Xforce Cable especially now w/ the variant Warpath along w/ Cannonball & Domino is equally awesome. Weaknesses would be the monkey arms of Juggernaut, the phoenix..uh...Phoenix and the lack of cool futuristic guns on Cable. Even the 'weak link' in the Punisher is a solid figure w/ great accessories & an excellent trench coat.

     

    2. Toy Biz Wave 5 - again, IMO a very solid wave. Colossus & Silver Surfer are excellent. Sabretooth, Mr Fantastic are both good. Hard for me to judge Blade as I don't care for it myself but it seems like a good likeness and a ton of accessories which back then for $7 was a steal. Nick Fury is so-so because I don't like the body reuse and Red Skull is pretty dreadful. Weaknesses would be the size of Mr. Fantastic. I wish he was a bit taller. I set up up next to the other Illuminati recently and he was dwarfed by all since I had Dr. Strange on a flight stand. Sabretooth is a bit skinny and Red Skull is just overall bad.

     

    3. Toy Biz Wave 10 - the Sentinel series. positives : Cyclops (both), Angel (both) Black Panther, Spiderman & Omega Red. Neutral - Mr. Sinister. Bad - Mystique. Cyclops' only complaint from me is the lack of torso articulation. I had hoped for the Jim Lee version when it was announced but we got XFactor duds. Angel in either color (I prefer blue) is awesome. Had they done a blue skinned variant, that'd been more fun I think. Omega Red is awesome but the fact that he had the same tentacles as the Sentinel always irked me as super lazy. Black Panther is awesome though I hated most resues of that body. Sinister was good if not a little too tall. The lack of wrist articulation bugged me as well. Mystique is just a tragedy. TB had an excellent female body in Phoenix and took a giant step in reverse here. I'll never understand. They really dropped the ball here. And of course Sentinel. A bit to many wires showing but overall, they display so well. Curious to see how they stack up against the Hasbro versions.

     

    4. Hasbro two packs, series 2, wave 1. Red Hand Ninja/Nick Fury (or Shield agent), Kree/Skrull soldiers & classic Iron Man/Maria Hill. The ultimate army building series of any line. Technically teh only non builder is Iron Man himself as SHIELD always needs a good amount of ladies at the helm. I still buy these sets when I see them and will continue to do so because the figures are all on point AND it boasts probably the best Iron Man figure to date! Awesome awesome figures w/ no flaws I can think of. I should probably rank them at 3, not 4.

     

    Honorable mention:

    Toy Biz Wave 15

    Toy Biz Wave 7 (had Apocalypse been good, this would be my favorite but his horrible figures kills the line for me)

     

    So what say you guys??

     

    i totally agree with u!! the only other i would include is the first set of face offs.
