tarot, I pretty much agree with most of what you've said.
Songbird's only had the short hair very recently (barring her former Mimi alter ego), but the long hair is a much more popular hair for her. Ah well, here's to hoping she doesn't turn out to be like Danielle Moonstar. Ugh. I STILL WANT MY MOONSTAR!!
With Moonstone, yeah, I just spent $200 on ebay for her and the whole TB team, including shipping and import taxes (I'm Canadian). I'm hoping to snag a cheaper one along the way, but I wanted to at least get the set so that in the event I can't get a cheaper deal, I can sleep at night knowing I have one set.
See, this set is for us fans I think. Not a lot of casual action figure collectors would care about villains. I mean, all I see remaining in many department stores are Klaws, Constrictors, Mystiques, etc... so thank you Hasbro for having the balls to have a villains set. We haven't had one since Toybiz's Onslaught (which is one of the cheapest selling sets out there along with Mojo).
And yes, I think Songbird and Moonstone are separate... Moonstone takes after the Judith Chambers mold, while Songbird takes after the Elektra mold. Unless these are sample prototypes, but I doubt it. Since these are set to be released when... December?
And haha pat myself on the back for guessing Jubilee as the BAF. Something was just not right about the wave. If it's a villain wave, why is Jubilee in it? LOL. Thor can be excused. One or more of Thor, Wolvy, Iron Man, Capt. America, Hulk or Spidey have to be in each wave to drive sales.
And Rescue will be my first Iron Man Legends purchase. Hooray!
