I am really confused about when new figures from this line will be available - this is what I am seeing so far over at ee.com:
Wave 4, due out in May, is going to consist of all (11) repacks and only one new figure Whiplash - only one of him!!!
Supposedly this will be the same thing in Wave 4 revision 3, also due out in may - except this time according to EE they will all have "Revised Packaging". Anyone have any idea what that could mean?
Am I missing something or is this how it really is going to be in terms of never seeing the new product for this line?
I was looking into this as well.
Now that they have even released a good amount of the racetrack scene with the fight between Whiplash and Tony in the Mark V suitcase armor, I am even more shocked than I was before that the Whiplash figure based on this scene isn't out yet.
I was extremely surprised when I saw the case break-downs for these two Wave 4 cases - not to mention the fact that there is a Revision 1 and Revision 2 version of this case, that is nothing but re-packs.
Thankfully, my primary focus with this line was to score all six versions of the Iron Man armor, War Machine and Iron Monger - which I've done.
Minimally, I'd love to add a couple of those Hammer Drones (or whatever they're called) to my little mini-collection of Iron Man 2 stuff. I'd also love to get Whiplash, Nick Fury and Black Widow, but if I have to track them down at a rate of 1-per-case, I'm afraid that just ain't gonna happen - especially if next week I'm able to find the remaining Star Wars items I need before the re-launch in August, over the next few months, I'm just not gonna be wasting the gas to hit that many toy stores.
Did the Star Wars team loan the Iron Man 2 team the guy who works on case assortment pack-out ratios? Cause this 1-per-case nonsense with new figures is something that only that idiot would do.
