  1. In the cases you mentioned several of those were years apart (Venom) or still only one proper wave (Black Widow). There were also only 2 Gamerverse waves; the only Spider-Man game figures so far either either store exclusives or mixed into comic Spider-Man waves. So again, the only movies that actually get more than one dedicated wave are generally the Avengers ones, with a few outliers like Black Panther. So, nah, I don't see that sort of consolidation being realistic. Especially not when the decision to combine the Disney+ shows like that means they're already behind on some big characters that they've mentioned now having to find ways to include in future stuff like Agatha Harkness or the antagonist of Loki.
  2. Most of the films only ever have one wave. The Avengers films are the exception because of how many characters are involved.
  3. Saw this pointed out on Twitter. The Funko Pop Captain Carter has a special logo for some sort of special program called Year of the Shield, in reference to Captain America's 80th Anniversary. Though it seems the Fantastic Four are the major anniversary Hasbro is focusing on this year, I wonder if they plan to also do something for Cap.
  4. I know you're joking but I'd be cool with a Celestial in the scale of the recent Surtur or the Toys R Us Sentinel. I know it's nowhere near the proper size but I still want them to have some sort of presence in my collection.
  5. Also not everyone pays close attention to the leaks. I did see at least a few collectors who didn't know Psycho-Man was coming before that but immediately picked up on the tease.
  6. I also don't get the obsession with chest size. However, I do wish we had a greater diversity of body shapes for the female characters and that we could get some new female bodies in rotation with better articulation. Tigra, Ironheart and Captain Carter having pinless double elbows is a nice start and I'm hoping that becomes more standard.
  7. Not really a big Scarjo fan, but I'll always support holding a big corporation's feet to the fire like this. Pay up.
  8. Generally (not always) single-releases tend to fly in under the radar with more secrecy than retail waves. So it's entirely possible there are additional single Retro FF figures planned, but so far we've heard nothing about it.
  9. Then it's basically just looking for something to complain about at that point, tbh.
  10. Has there ever been a comic BAF for an all MCU wave? Also, please don't try to pretend if they had made a classic comic Uatu for the What If? wave, many of the same people upset about this being an MCU version wouldn't also be complaining about having to buy an all MCU wave just for a classic comic BAF. As I said earlier, this is a situation where collectors who only stick with comic versions (nothing wrong with that, of course) were likely gonna be upset no matter what Hasbro did.
  11. People are gonna be angry either way. When they do all MCU waves like Eternals or the Disney+ stuff people complain that they're taking up too many slots that could have gone to comic figures, and when they do mixed waves, that inevitably winds up pissing people off too because the comic-only fans don't like having to buy movie figures for the BAF, and vice versa. I'm gonna be honest, I doubt we see Hasbro slow down on the MCU stuff next year. They already are missing several prominent characters from the Disney+ shows fans are asking for, and that's in addition to whatever other movies and shows drop next year.
  12. Yeah but it's not like they're gonna not make the Watcher just because they didn't do him before. This is about to be likely the widest exposure the character has ever had so I don't see why they wouldn't cash in on that.
  13. Yup as soon as the Gamerverse Abomination was revealed I recall seeing people speculating it was only a matter of time before they do a new version with a comic accurate head on the same body. Anyway if they do ever get to doing a second Bad Guys wave Mephisto is a no brainer.
  14. If the recent shows are any indication we'll probably get the What If? Legends revealed on Marvel's website at some point. Should be relatively soon since it starts airing in a few weeks.
  15. The tipoff was the idea that Thanos, Abomination and Terrax would all be in the same wave. At best we'd likely get one of those as a BAF.
  16. They specifically mentioned they couldn't fill them because Venom was in production at the same time as the Omega Red redeco, which required the holes to fit the shoulder pads. There was a mention about possibly filling them in for future uses of the body, however.
  17. Alternate Lifebringer Galactus color scheme. JK. I have no idea what else it could be, other than perhaps a component of his energy absorber device.
  18. Dope. Just watched I May Destroy You over the quarantine period and she was incredible.
  19. If it doesn't fund they'll just do a video of She-Hulk destroying all the Nova figures they produced for this set.
  20. 200 is way too much for me but I gotta give 'em credit for going all in on the meme like that.
