Thanks Shmash and evenflow, I appreciate the feedback!




Thanks to my wife's suggestion that we go to a particular Walmart, scored all 3 types of Electros out right now.

Translucent arms, translucent arms and mask, and regular version.  Sorry about the blurry pic.





Big winnings.

Found a "normal" Doctor Strange at Wal-Mart today, meaning I'm pretty much done with the Universe line for a while.

What is the next new wave in this line and when is it supposed to hit?

That Guardian figure isn't new is it?

I think Doc Strange's wave is the latest.  I saw Cable and X-23 at Target today for the first time, but they are a few waves back I think.

I have no clue which wave is which but I've seen 3 waves hit since September:

1. The wave with Skaar, Scarlet Spider, Dr. Doom, etc. and I think Strange was in that one too
2. The wave with Steve Rodgers, X-23, Ultron, etc.
3. The wave with Ultimate Magneto, Astonishing Wolverine, Iceman, etc. This was the latest wave I've found

Thanks, is there anyplace to find a complete listing of al the figures released in this line so far? I am thinking about getting my feet wet but would like to be selective.

I see the Masterworks Sentinel is down to $27.99 today on Amazon.  I had been holding off for a Galactus-like sale on this one, and I may bite at that price.

Meh.  The X-Men set looks cool, but I don't collect those guys.  The Iron Man set is interesting, but I already have Silver Centurian.  And I feel like we've already had multiple Hulks and Wolvies, though for anyone that hasn't read that comic it is a classic.

I was leaning towards probably getting the Juggy set, but then I would have a third Colossus.  The IM/Mandarin set doesn't interest me much as I already have both. The Hulk set I would get if that is how we are getting that new Hulk sculpt - but I think it is also going to be on single card with a darker paint scheme.
