Found the latest Secret Wars comic packs (Nightcrawler/Storm, Doom/Absorbing Man) at Target yesterday.  The paint jobs on these are much improved from the last few waves.  I picked up Nightcrawler/Storm - great set.

How long have these been out? I need them. Is there anywhere with a master list of the comic packs and waves (including variants)? I know I'm still missing several single carded figures. Not sure how many of the comic packs.

They have just about everything on there.  The only thing I am not seeing is the Luke Cage variant and the Black Widow variant that some site (can't remember who) showed off a couple of weeks ago.  But in regards to the variants - I still have not heard any reports of the Vision or Warpath variants showing up at retail - and they were shown off ages ago!

Comicfigs.net has pictures of the Widow variant.  Cage looks different to me as well, but they don't have a comparison pic.  I'm not holding my breath for variations of either of them, but would probably nab the 2nd widow if I saw her at retail.  I wasn't going to buy Cage, but now that I see his hat is removeable, I will probably try to snag him as well.  (I think the hat looks ridiculous)

Did they announce the Wrecker for a single card to finish off the Wrecking Crew?

Yeah, he was in the TF presentation - he will be single carded in the wave after the upcomming X-men heavy wave.  

Along with him in that wave it is looking like there will be:

 
  Iron Patriot
  Mary Jane Watson (Fans' Choice Winner)
  Skrull Warrior
  Spider-Man (Iron Spider)
  Winter Soldier (Fans' Choice Winner)
  Wrecker


edit - just wanted to throw in a comment on Luke Cage - I thought he was one bad ass figure - and I like the hat   ;D

user Goldbug over at rebelscum posted a link showing off more new figures to come in a case breakdown on bbts - http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/product.aspx?product=HAS18604&mode=retail

Case Includes:

Captain Britain x 1
Team X Wolverine x 2
Multiple Man x 2
Mystique x 1
Ghost Rider x 1
Iron Patriot x 1
Wrecker x 1
Colossus x 1
Spider-Man (Red / Blue) x 1
Hulk x 1

I like the sound of those new figures- bring em on! Although, this just goes to show we will be buying Ghost Rider twice - you just know they are gonna put him out on his bike sometime, right?!?!


Oh well, I'll bite - something about this line is still too shakey for me too hold off on passing things.

Thanks for the head's up.  I'm game for the Mystique probably, but the rest are an easy pass.  I wonder if the Hulk is a repeat or an upgrade?

I could be wrong, but to me the top half of the case breakdown are the brand new figures for this wave, and I think from Iron Patriot on down the figures are repacks.  I am pretty sure that both Iron Patriot and Wrecker are coming out in the wave proceeding this one, and Colossus is coming out two waves before it.  Red/Blue Spiderman is of course mos tlikely the classic one, and as for Hulk, its not a bad thing getting him out again - he doesn't peg warm.

I guess if they were going to do anything different with Hulk at this point - I could see them repainting the one from the comic pack with a less "vibrant comic stylized" coloring, otherwise I think it is still too early in the line to see a retooled or brand new one.

edit:  From CTR:   Captain Britain is a fan-favorite with several different costumes to choose from...which version will we see?

Sharp-eyed fans may have noticed that the A.I.M. Soldier from wave 9 is very similar to the classic Johnny Blaze Ghost Rider, so it's a good guess to thin this is the version we'll get.

It's possible that Multiple Man could get a "Fans' Choice Runner Up" (much like Luke Cage did), since he was part of last year's poll, although he did not win....might he be the final figure that has yet to be revealed?

On the other hand, Mystique WAS a winner in the poll, so it's a safe bet that she'll be designated as such.

Finally, another Wolverine, but in his "Team X" uniform. This is the cool spy gear from the flashback tales in the early issues of the Jim Lee-illustrated X-Men series. It's unknown if this will be using the standard Marvel Universe buck, or perhaps rescuing a figure from the ill-fated X-Men Origins: Wolverine line.


side note edit:    just noticed on HTS that Vision and Warpath are no longer even listed on the site - that sucks becuase I know this wave was real hard for some people to get

I noticed that too, a little disappointing.  I think I saw each of those once, but had to pass at the time, but I was really hoping to pick up Vision at some point.  Hopefully he'll be re-released at some point or something.

I hope so too. Many of the earlier ones have been rereleased, or is it that they just haven't moved off pegs...

Ebay is pretty dry for the Vision wave as well, you can't seem to find one on there for less than 15$. I hope he gets a re release as well.
