  1. Yeah I got my Thor/Rocket/Groot 3pack in from EE a couple weeks ago and I was surprised to see it had the TRU sticker on it lol. I’ve ordered every former TRU Exclusive through EE and this was the only one that had the sticker.
  2. I ordered 3 cases of them Apoc wave from EE, they all came in 3-4 weeks ago. Each case had the purple hair so I recently put an order in for an additional single Psylocke, in the hopes that it’s rhe black hair version lol.

    SDCC 2018 Official Discussion

    Well this was a very weak SDCC for me. Not as in I didn’t like what was shown, because I did like quite a bit actually but mainly from a quantity standpoint. There was far less shown here than what we traditionally see at SDCC and drastically far less than what we saw at ToyFair this year. The reason for this seems to be quite clear as they even referenced this in the panel slide show and that is because they are really promoting the upcoming cons and plan to keep more reveals saved for all of those cons respectively. If this is the new motus operandi, than I will just learn to taper my expectations for future SDCCs is all. Pros for me: 1. Blink 2. Skullbuster 3. Kingpin 4. Xavier 5. Silver Sable 6. AIM Soldiers. Pushing the army builders is just smart business. Bring on Shield, Hand, etc. 7. Vintage Wave 2 is stellar Cons for me: 1. Majik for Walgreens? Great to see another release of Majik but not at the expense of a FF4 character...especially when they could’ve just thrown her in as the bonus 8th fig without the BAF piece for the 2019 X-men Wave. 2. No mention of HasLab at the panel? WTF. I don’t need a reveal of what they have planned but at least an acknowledgement that they know it exists... Did they not notice that the first project funded at over $4.5 million dollars, almost doubled its goal AND was for the 3.75 Scale (ya know, the scale that Hasbro thinks marvel collectors don’t exist for anymore?) 3. No mention of 3.75 (that was practically a given so trust me, I wasn’t holding my breath) 4. No mention of 12in (since 12in was also absent at ToyFair, I guess this officially means they are “resting” the line). Shame. 5. Archangel deluxe set for $30? Same with Majik, should have just been slotted into the X-men waves or something. It’s the SAME figure as before but with extra heads and an Apoc claw arm and that’s worthy of a “deluxe” figure and for $30??? To be clear, I’m not upset about the fig be re-released by any means but given what I stated above, I just don’t get it. 6. No mention of any new Legends assortments or extensions to existing assortments (like Knights for example) 7. No Thor figs revealed. Was hoping for at least a tease of another Ragnarok Wave since we are getting a 2nd BP Wave. BP definitely blew away box office expectations to which Hasbro was clearly not prepared for BUT Ragnarok also made close to $1B and far out-grossed the previous 2 installments... Also, at the end of the day, I’d rather see a follow up MCU wave to Ragnarok that could possibly contain Korg, GrandMaster, Skurge, Heimdall, etc...than to NOT see ANY more Thor comic or movie figs... 8. Accessory Packs? Neca makes accessory packs/dioramas all the time and Legends is by far a stronger selling and wider/deeper IP. Neca makes packs of stands that support alt Head sculpts for crying out loud! (man do I love Neca) The money being left on the table here by Hasbro is nothing short of astonishing and it’s almost inconceivable to think that they aren’t at least aware of this...

    Ahh gotcha. I was way off judging the scale from that photo lol. The fact that it’s the MU version at least explains why it looks goofy to me I suppose.

    Allow me to reply to your post in case Hasbro is going to read this forum (they say they do) THANK YOU for Skullbuster! Bring on the bad guys!!! Majik & Archangel, while being re-issues, are better than the previous versions so yes, you can take my money

    Maybe it’s just that boxed photo or something but that Sentinel looks like 8in tall if that and goofy as hell looking?

    I agree Monron on the “we follow Disney’s lead” thing and mostly because it’s not so much vague as it is redundantly mastering the obvious. Hasbro releases waves to support the Disney MCU films...we know this already... The current Legends line (speaking from the 2014 Infinite Series rebrand) was FORMED around the principal of supporting the movie lines (and comic lines) under one universal wave banner, which had really never been done before like that. Unlike 2014 however, where we got a total of 4 BAF waves that year, we are now 10 waves deep into 2018 and if Panther Wave 2 lands before 2019 (to which I believe it will), we will be at 11 waves for the year. You know what hasn’t grown? The amount of MCU movies that come out in a year...as we never get more than 3. In summary, since there are more than enough waves that get released in a year to cover all the movie launches AND also give us other waves that have nothing to do with the movies, there is already BUILT-IN dedicated space for assorted waves to come out in the line, each yeah, that don’t conflict or are at the sacrifice/expense of the movie waves. What’s your answer to that? Even if all 3 MCU movies that come out in a given year get 2 entire waves dedicated to them (which not all movies do-most don’t in fact) that’s only 6 waves. We know we are getting 2 Spidey Waves and 1 X-men Wave so that’s 9. That still leaves room for a Captain America wave in that year, an Iron Man wave in the following year, etc. If Hasbro means to say that they cannot release a Cap, Thor, Iron Man, Knights assortment, etc wave in a year, simply because there’s not a movie for that corresponding character coming out in that year...then I don’t even know what to say to that. If that’s what they “really mean” by following Disney’s lead then that’s just asinine and a huge lack of fan service.

    @Rukkdeez Thank you sir, you are a true gentlemen & a scholar. I’m excited to hear that they are at least thinking about giving us main hero themed character waves in a year thats not tied to a movie. However on the same token, that answer of “We follow Disney’s lead” is a little disheartening to hear and kind of head scratching when you think about it considering they are releasing about 10 waves a year now and have plenty of room to adequately tackle the movies with MCU focused waves (as they have been) AND release plenty of other waves. Great answer on the exclusives, that’s exactly what I was hoping would be said so I am very happy on that. Speaking of which...I wonder where that Days Of Future Past Sentinel set is going to land? That leaves, if you have the time/opportunity, to bring up their thoughts on HasLab, 12in Legends (I.E. simply put...will we see more?) and the 3.75 line as you already stated. In any case, it’s totally badass that you were able to pick their brains on some of these things we’ve been discussing and I genuinely appreciate it. Good stuff man, good stuff! P.S. I wonder if you could ask them if they have plans on revisiting more recent movies and releasing additional waves for them as well? With a 2nd Black Panther Wave landing about a year from the first wave AND it not being tied to any other movie, they kind of set a precedent for the current Legends line as they are essentially “re-visiting” the movie with a follow up wave a year later. I bring this question up mostly as in, if they can do it for Panther, can they do it for say...Ragnarok? I prefer comic waves over MCU waves but if we are talking brass tacs, I would be MUCH more open to purchasing a 2nd Thor Wave that gave us movie versions of GrandMaster, Collector, Skurge, Heimdall, BAF Kurse, etc...then a 2nd wave of MCU Panther figs. Considering the Ragnarok Wave we got was representative of the first real batch of Thor related legends we had gotten in YEARS...I can’t be the only collector interested in an additional Thor wave can I? Just figured I’d throw that out there lol. Thank you!
