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?

I thought the spiderman/venom was new - he looks bulkier. 

as for the lack of product - my guess is Hasbro is being smart on delaying putting the product out so we spend all of our nickels on Iron Man while there is nothing new available in their other lines.

Went searching at a bunch of places for the new Iron man wave and the Rhino figure. No luck.

Saw the news on marvelousnews.com about Juggies helmet not being removable to show off his head.  His head is attached to his helmet.  I kinda figured since this was never really "show cased" by Hasbro.  So while this stinks, you had to see it coming - how else would they get us to buy him later down the line to get more money from us?

on a positive note - I am still super stoked that I was able to get these in on pre-order from HTS for such a good price.

I'm comming in late on this line. So, I'm trying to fill the gaps in my collection. Luckily, I have some of the last wave of Superhero Showdown figs, which really helps round out the set. I'm trying to keep it focused on the just the main heroes and their Rogue's gallery. I picked up a Marvel Legend BAF Sentinel, to showcase the X-Men. That figure is friggin huge! I plan on putting togather an Avengers Team, using a BAF Giant Man, should look sweet.

Received my Entertainment Earth case with Juggernaut, Colossus, Kitty Pryde, Havok, Archangel, A.I.M. soldiers.

All of these are great!!  This line is getting progressively better.

Also ordered Hulkbuster Iron Man, Guardsman, and Titanium Man from Hasbrotoyshop.com

Very nice!  I just ordered the wave off of HTS on Monday.  It's my most anticipated wave yet.

Throw some pictures up, Matt.

I received that wave from BBTS this week as well, and I'll agree, I think the line is continuing to get better.  The last couple waves (the Black Widow/Modern Thor/etc. wave, and now this one) are both pretty well done.  Hopefully the trend continues.  I was on the fence about getting Colossus after having the Wolverine line version, but this one is quite nifty too.  I think the entire wave is pretty well done.

Sorry, just saw this.  You must be getting them about now, so I doubt you need pics anymore!  This must mark the first time in history I got a new wave before you.  Preordering these cases from Entertainment Earth has been pretty good.  I think I'll preorder the next 2 with Multiple Man, Mystique, Skrull Soldiers etc.  They even include a $15 coupon with the order.

Whoever called that MU 6 pack being based on Giant Sized X-Men #1 was correct. Seems a sample showed up on ebay,

http://cgi.ebay.com/Lot-x-6-Marvel-UNIVERSE-loose-2009-2010-/170494007822?cmd=ViewItem&pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item27b23c1a0e

Not bad, kind of tempted to wait on Colossus now and get him from this set instead. BTW, is anyone else but me getting really tired of this Cyclops mold? We've gotten him in Secret Wars, getting another one in that Dark Phoenix Comic pack and now again? I didn't realize Cyclops' popularity was so high.
