Based on the first 5 figs shown and the fact that there are still 9 more to go, I'm very happy with this set and will definitely get a couple of them.  :D

I'm fine with the latest two additions - I think they look cool.  Better than just the standard clone repaints!

Pics of Hulk wave 2

Much, much better than the ****fest that was the movie Spidey wave.  I assume we'll see wave 1 and the big ass Chinese dragon in purple underwear at SDCC.

Valkyrie looks good - probably only one I would get from this line.

If so, I have 14 of them available.  I decided to switch my Kubes over to a Detolf and no longer have need for them.  They've all been open but have been barely used.  If interested, just let me know and we can work something out.

I'd be interested in 3-4 of them.  Let me know what you want for them.  Would be great if we could work out a trade...

Still no word from BBTS.   :P

Congrats on getting one.  I'm still holding out for BBTS...they keep adjusting the expected delivery date each month.   :)  :-\  :(

Help me BBTS, you're my only hope!

Jesse picked up a few figures from me and the transaction was smooth as silk.  Thanks for helping me clear out my basement JV!   ;)

Well, it is called a Mandalorian 14 pack, so makes sense that the clones have something to do with Mandalrians.  If it was mostly clones, you'd think they'd call it Clone Training 14 pack.  Its hard to judge the set based on 3 figs at this point, but I'm still eager to see it.  At least they didn't price gouge us on it - $70 for 14 figures isn't a bad deal even if you don't like a few of the figs.

Saw this in the latest EW.  I was surprised to see Obadiah in there as a mentor - in the comics, Stane basically steals Stark's company when Tony falls off the wagon and a major battle ensues with Iron Man fighting Stanes bigger and badder version of the armor.  I wonder if Stane will be a baddy in the first flick or if they're setting us up for betrayal down the line?

They already set up Dr. Connors as a character, so it would be a shame not to have him in a future sequel.  I like the idea of the sinister six - either bring back Doc Oc (we never really see him die) or replace him with a different major baddie.  To do this right though, you just need to have a sotry where all six of them are gunning for Spidey at the same time as a group.  My problem with 3 is that you had 3 baddies after spidey, but they were just kind of on their own, so it felt like they were trying to cram 6 hours of story into a 2 hour flick.

I've kept my dipslay of ML to two shelves, both about 18" wide and 18" deep.  The main shelf is all Avengers from Iron Man/Giant Man/Hulk/Thor/Wasp to the West Coast branch to some of the New Avengers. 

For my display, I'm only using one of each character.  So if you could bring all of the Avengers together, this is how it might look, but you wouldn't have a phasing vision and a regular one or two versions of Wonderman, 6 versions of Iron Man, etc.  You take your favorite of each character and put them in the scene.  My "extras" of each character (Extra Thors, Iron Man, etc.) go on the second, less prominent shelf.

I'm a little random in my selection - I included a custom Diamondback figure from Captain America, but didn't pick up the Luke Cage figure that came out.  I have her on the first shelf and Arachnia on the first shelf, but Beta Ray Bill is on shelf #2.  I also have both Yellowjacket and Giant Man on my top shelf, and I had to include FA Iron Man and the 80's Gold and Red Iron Man on the top shelf as well, so its not perfect.

The nice thing about this is that its almost complete.  I'm having a custom Tigra and Mockingbird created by a guy at Fwoosh who made an awesome Kate Bishop for me.  I'll probably get around to adding US Agent, maybe Sersei, Crystal, Starfox, and Quasar, and if a better Luke Cage comes out, I would add him.  Possibly Beast as well.  Not adding all of the New Avengers nonsense that's going on now - Iron Fist, Dr. Strange, Iron Spidey, Wolverine?  Those guys do not belong in my avengers, though I did squeeze Wolvie into the top shelf for now. 

If you wanted an assembly of the best of Marvel, I would do something similar to the one version of each character and just put in the major characters/your favorites.  For me, that would look something like:

8-10 Avengers (Original team plus Witch, Quick, Hawkeye, Cap, Herc, Black Panther, Black Knight, War Machine, Ms. Marvel)
10-12 X-men (Original 5 plus Wolvie, Colossus, Storm, Nightcrawler, Rogue, Gambit, Bishop, Cable, Prof X, Kitty?)
Fantastic Four
Dr. Strange
Moon Knight
Ghost Rider
Captain Marvel

Any big names I forgot?  If you've collected all of the bad guys as well, would be pretty cool to set up a display with the good guys charging right and the bad guys charging left - I mainly just collect the heroes.

I don't mind the clones, but am in the camp with wishing there was just one of these.  I hope they aren't doubling up on any of the remaining 11 figs.

nabbed 2 mcFetts today.

funny story too. just standing there looking at the pegs for him then some guy just comes out of nowhere to ask what i was looking for. i tell him boba and hes all like hey dont worry i got one in my car that i am returning ill give it to you so you can buy it. ten minutes latter he comes back and tells me to follow him, comes to he had hidden 4 fetts in the store and was looking for them for me. apparently the cahsier wouldnt give him the boba back so he was looking for his hidden stash. he ended up finding it and gave me one. ten minutes latter i go back to grad a DST and he comes and hes like what you want another one, here, and he gave me one more lol. we ended up getting a third for my friend. it was pretty wierd yet funny. he had atleast 3-4 bobas hidden.

What an odd story.  I've hidden stuff for people in my collecting group, but why would you hide stuff, then hang out and tell strangers where you hid things?  Might make more sense to just, I don't know, leave the items on the pegs?

Saw Fantastic Four 2 earlier today. Thought it was waaaay better than the first, the Surfer was especially cool. Still, Galactus was portrayed kind of weird, and Ioan Gruffudd and Jessica Alba have absolutely NO chemistry whatsoever. It was really painful to watch.

Well, to be honest, I never thought the Invisible Woman and Mr. Fantastic had a lot of chemistry in the comics, so this is true to form... ;)

Wound up picking up and extra Appo, just because.

Wow, I haven't seen an Appo on the shelf in ages!  Nice find.  I have a lot of extra Saga figs that I'm going to have to return before Target gets wise and clearances them.

Check Target this week - I saw him in 4 different stores this weekend.

UGH - I hope Target is not still getting cases of Saga after all this time... ::)
