  1. The Cap 2-pack is disappointing. If they were gonna do a 2-pack this was a perfect place to have Sam in the Falcon suit he wore for the majority of the show. Knull looks incredible. Can't wait to see this dude finished and in hand.
  2. I believe the ToyBiz Legends Ultron was actually supposed to be based on his appearance from the Ultimate Alliance video game, which was in development at the time. At least before they gave him a new head due to fan outcry. But if you look at the original version with the game model, it's a dead ringer.
  3. Last year in one of the livestreams they said that they'd discussed the possibility of doing accessory packs, but the problem was that it'd likely be difficult to get retailers interested in such a thing. If it ever does happen I am guessing it'll be a Pulse exclusive like the flight stands they've been doing.
  4. At least it's not Spy-D, I guess! Anyway, can't wait to see who the BAF of this wave is. I've got a few I'd like but Super-Adaptoid is a cool one I'm surprised Hasbro hasn't made yet.
  5. In this specific case? Because Ms. Marvel is no longer the name they market Carol Danvers under, to the extent that they now have her referred to as Captain Marvel in just about every bit of merchandise and media they produce (or just her civilian name as the other poster showed with the 3.75 inch figure). That is also presumably why the recent-ish figures of Genis-Vell and Mar-Vell were simply released under those names, as well as why if they ever do a classic 80s Monica Rambeau, she'll most likely just have that name or Spectrum on the packaging. Hell, I'm shocked the figure of Carol as Binary actually uses that name. Pretty much all of this is stuff with implications for broader media (where the actual money is to be made), where any concern about multiple people using the same name is less of an issue anyway since they aren't bound by the same status quo as the comics.
  6. I'm more confused as to why someone would be upset about an Avengers related character being released in an Avengers wave rather than an unrelated X-Men character who just happens to have similar powers.
  7. The guy on Fwoosh is claiming that he messed up and that Quake is in the wave, not Quicksilver. If so it'd be cool if she came for some alternate normal hands and alternate heads to serve as a generic female SHIELD agent army builder.
  8. Not thrilled with yet another Cap and Iron Man but hopefully the latter is at least Extremis, which badly needs a redo. Cynically though I'm expecting another redeco of an existing mold, either 80th anniversary or Modular. Thor I guess all I really want is his Herald of Galactus look.
  9. Yeah, the interpretation that someone else's wants for this wave are invalid because "the Avengers used to only be the best of the best" is really comical.
  10. Hot damn. Been beating the drum for Blue Marvel for a while, so this was a welcome surprise to wake up to.
  11. I somehow doubt they plan to release a second, brown-skinned Omega Sentinel in the near future. She's one of those characters who, unless she appears in a movie or undergoes a massive profile boost in the comics, is likely gonna just have that one figure.
  12. Really? Because on just about all those the thing it says to me is pennies were pinched or mistakes were made, rather than any sort of deliberate attempt to manipulate the customer.
  13. It's not particularly weird. Given the mention of Scarlet Witch and Vision on the Amazon listing it's very clear this whole wave (of sorts) is a low cost attempt to cash in on the popularity of the Disney+ shows.
  14. I think it's way more likely we get a movie Wong than a comic one in that wave (he's now one of the few semi-prominent MCU characters who has no figure now) but I could see a comic Mordo being there.
  15. Yeah, I know. That's why I said Bonebreaker was way more likely as a BAF than a standalone deluxe release.
  16. Bonebreaker seems like the exact level of notoriety that he'd be viable as a BAF but probably wouldn't have much retailer interest as a standalone deluxe release. So I can see why they'd do him as a BAF (if indeed the speculation is correct).
  17. Probably not gonna happen but I'd be really happy if Synch made it into this wave. C'mon, Hasbro, get cracking on some of those Gen X members!
  18. One was just the main character of a major TV series and the other is Spider-Man. I'm sure if they do a Retro Thor, it'll be when his next movie drops in 2022.
