Correct.   I think Avengers Assemble is similar to the current SW Legends line.  The new Marvel Avengers line should be similar to SW Black Series or the existing Marvel Universe line.

Yes, but there's also a current Avengers Assemble line that has more articulation and will be more expensive.  You can get the six figures from wave 1 currently on Amazon, and HTS has them up for preorder.  They're $9.99 and articulated similar to the MU figures.

I have seen the Herculeus Wave at multiple Targets this week, and even spotted a couple of Rhinos today in EP.  Anyone need help with these?  They seem to be rolling out some new stuff at long last.

Yes! I need a Rhino, Professor X and Mysterio... really anything Spider-Man and X-Men related from the last few months

Oh!  I wasn't aware there was a third Avengers line.  Nice that they also called this one Avengers Assemble to avoid any confusion.   ::)  I'll get Widow from that line - feel like I already have solid versions of the rest.

I've only seen Rhino this one time.  Want me to grab him for you?  I'll keep an eye out for the others...

Yes please, if you don't mind. All of my local stores have abandoned the MU line, and haven't even restocked other Marvel lines in ages.

Okay, will try to snag him this weekend if I can get back to Target.  Will let you know...

I received the newest wave of MU from BBTS this week (Rhino, Mysterio, Cap, Elektra) - very nice wave overall.  I couldn't remember seeing this mentioned anywhere, but the Mysterio figure has a fully sculpted Chameleon head under his fishbowl.  Its unpainted, but definitely looks like Chameleon - perhaps one is on the way?

I'm just waiting on my BBTS shipment.  Stupid foreign country. 

Managed to pick up Puck off EBay for just a hair over $10 with shipping, so cheaper than I could get it for here after taxes.  Happy about that.  Just trying to pick up an Angel now.  Then I'll be up to date.

Mysterio is a great figure, much better than the Toybiz 6 inch version.

Got my shipment today and very pleased with Rhino and Mysterio, though I haven't opened them yet.  Elektra is ok, though not the best female figure they've released even though they're probably all the same body for all the female characters.

Most pleasant surprise was the Cap figure.  Wasn't looking for another but was willing to get this one for the peace of mind of having these delivered (I just don't think about the pricing).  It's a really, really nice version of Cap and mine is very well painted.

Since I'm now full bore into this line, I'd love to see a Chameleon figure.  Also thinking of rehashing my suggestion from the six inch line for a friends and family box set  ;)  Would also like to see a Black Cat figure to fill out the Spidey line.

Scored an Angel figure off ebay last night for $10.50, so $16.00 after shipping.  Not great, but out of the way and I can now forget that wave pretty much entirely.  I might grab a Nova if it showed up locally, but not great loss if I don't own that figure.

I stumbled on the new Rhino yesterday at Target and snagged it along with the new Cap. I was considering ordering a case of that wave but now I just need Mysterio so I might just try to track him and Xavier down online.

Got Abomination, Grey Hulk, and Cloak. Pretty cool figures, hopefully will be able to get Dagger ad A-Bomb.
