New Cap sculpt: (Which I think is the JL Cyclops/Daredevil/Bullseye mold)


Rhino: (cool, but thought was a little weird since we have one, but still not a Vulture or Sandman)


Executioner:

The new stuff shown this weekend looks pretty nice.  Not a lot shown necessarily, but still some cool stuff.  Honestly, I was starting to wonder about the future of this line with Hasbro's shift to the 6" scale for collectors, 5 POA for kids type lineups.  Plus, with lines on the way for Iron Man, Wolverine, and Thor (along with Legends) I didn't know how much would come out.  That said, the new stuff looks really nice.  Especially excited they are making Cloak and Dagger, and the Spidey villains we've seen before.

Thanks for posting pictures.  I think that last one is the new Stealth Armor Iron Man.  Looks just like the suit he uses in issue #3.  Pretty nice offerings on the Marvel front - it will be nice to get something new.

Yeah, thanks for the pics, I juts kind of forgot to check the Marvel stuff. I'm obviously down for anything X-Men and Spider-Man so to see all of these awesome resculpts is great. Down for that new Cap as well. I'm sick of the stores only getting shipments once every three months though, so I might just start ordering cases online.

Speaking of cases, did they say anything about the Professor X/Jubilee wave? My stores have either zero figures or Target is still jampacked with that Juggernaut wave that randomly shipped in the fall. It would be cool to pick up that wave at retail since I really only want those two.

If you end up ordering a case and have Avengers to spare, shoot me a PM.  I'd take them off your hands.  ;)

I saw the Avengers 3-pack at Target over lunch (Red Hulk/Modern Iron Man/Thor Repaint).  Tempted to get this one, but it was priced at $27.99.  Too rich for my blood.

I know I know.  I will probably get it at some point, but Thor an IM are repaints, so $30 for Red Hulk seems excessive.

Just curious, but has anyone seen or been seeing the Paper Bag variant for the FF Spidey at retail or elsewhere?  I wasn't sure if it had really hit in full force yet (even with being a variant), but I was really hoping to pick it up at some point.  Haven't seen much new MU wise around for awhile now.

there are some people that think/say that they believe the majority of the Prof X wave was pushed back to release after the Hercules wave.  Bag Head Spidey is in that case.

Whether that is true or not - who knows?

I still need at least one of him myself.

I've already seen the Hercules wave on the pegs here at Walmart, so I
I would tend to agree.
