Not even a Wrecker to finish off the Wrecking Crew?  I didn't even know who those guys were until I read The Secret Wars packs, but now that I have the other three - I have to buy their leader!  Besides, I do agree that they are, except for MJ, very nice representations of the characters.  Wrecker looking particularly dead on imo

Iím still sticking to Avengers, so I think I only ended up with a spare Pile Driver from the Wrecking Crew. If I cave, it will beon Iron Spidey.

Marvelousnews.com has both loose and carded images of MU 2010 wave 4 up.  I think almost all of them look great - MJ being the weakest of the bunch (but I will still get her).

Totally agree, except for the buying MJ part.  I won't be.  All of the other ones will be on my MU shelf.

Mary Jane looks terrible.  Dark Phoenix not so hot.  The female bodies they're using on these are really kind of blah.

Yeah, they really need to retire that female body, the arms at least could benefit from being redone. They'd look so much better I think if they'd just throw in a few fabric folds or some little details or something to make it look less like it's just a body with new paint slapped on. They're wearing clothes, make it look like it.

Wow, that MJ is kinda terrible. She'd make a great base body though for customs though.

Grabbed the "Mass Attack" version of Doc Ock from the Spiderman line from Walmart.  I went there last week and the pegs were empty for this line - when I went today the pegs were nearly full.  It consisted of 2 Doc Ocks, 2 Venoms, and all the rest various Spiderman figures.  Thankfully I already have Rhino, whom is a great figure, but Hasbro is not making too easy for fans to obtain him.

I have not had any luck with Rhino, stores still have plenty of first wave Aqua spider-man, dont see restocks soon.

pretty sick at the lack of availabilty in new product for this line.  My spider senses have been tingling for almost the past two weeks causing me to stalk HTS.com thinking the latest wave is going to go up for sale or at least pre-order....

No luck at all.

blasted failed spider sense!

Yeah, these have been tough to find locally as well.  It is sort of the same situation as recent SW waves with the lack of availability on both HTS and at retail.  Our closest WM doesn't even carry these, and Target has had the same figures (from the first wave or two) for a long time now.  TRU has gotten the Cap/Bucky wave in recently, but they seem to be the only ones getting new stock.  This line seems to sell great when it is actually stocked with something new, but that hasn't happened for awhile now.  Our daughter has recently gotten way into superheroes, and loves playing with these, so I've been on a lookout for Black Widow as well as a couple older figures (Daredevil, Black Panther, etc.)  Even the older figures - unless you are looking for Spidey, Iron Man or Wolverine - aren't very easy to find.

You have to wonder, where the hell are they?  If they're not showing up in stores, and they're not even on Hasbro's retail website, then where are they?  Are they being produced in much lower numbers?

MarvelousNews has carded and loose pics of two new comic packs: Cyclops/Phoenix and Dark Spidey/Dark Wolverine. Might get Cyclops and Phoenix but Spidey and Wolverine repaints are the last thing this line needs.

Also I too haven't seen restocks of ANY Marvel product since the Iron Man 2 line hit shelves. What gives?
