Got an Abomination and Cloak off of eBay.

Abomination is pretty tiny.

Saw Abomination and Grey Hulk yesterday.  And I was definitely disappointed with the size of both figures.

Ordered Mysterio on Amazon for $11.99. They also had newer figures like Electra, Rhino, etc. for the same price. Came to like $17 after tax and shipping but since I'll never see the figure in stores it's a decent price.

I saw a bunch of new MU figures at TRU yesterday...Abomination, Cloak, etc.

Why is Cloak called "Marvel Knights" on the package?!?!

It's because they will use the same packaging for Dagger.

Finally got this wave from BBTS and yeah, Abomination is kind of an abomination.  Not very cool really. 

If anyone stumbles across an extra Dagger during their hunts, keep me in mind.  I open my stuff so card condition matters not at all.  Since we're occasionally seeing stuff get stocked I'll do the same for anyone that needs. 

And this is largely the end of the Universe line, correct?  We'll only see it out of the Avengers themed line from this point on?

we still have one more wave - the Omega Red wave - then basically everything is switching under an Avengers or movie line banner

I found an Elektra figure on the pegs with Hercules today.  Is this a new figure?  Can't remember seeing her before in pictures or previous waves.  Also, anyone know if the Antman comic pack was ever released?

Thank you for the explanation.  No Omega Red wave up for pre-order on BBTS as of yet.

Elektra is a new figure, as far as I'm aware.  She came in the wave with Mysterio and the new Rhino sculpt (Captain America was in there as well and I think it all shipped with some repacks like Iron Spider and a couple of Wolverines amongst other stuff). 

Don't think the Antman comic pack has come to fruition, at least not yet.  I've seen no pre-orders and there's nothing on Ebay at the moment.

Thanks for checking for Dagger, I think she'll be a little bit yet as it's a running change and that wave is only starting to hit isn't it?  Either way, appreciate the thought.

It was there 1-2 months ago. I'm not going to bother searching BBTS because I hate their search engine and they fill their preorders last anyway.  But here is the EE link to the case:

Abomination is pretty tiny.

I checked this out thoroughly and he's actually the right height and muscle mass IMO.  I think people are hung up on the torso joint/tooling and the immediate abs proportions around it. I snapped this pic on my way out the door this AM:



Marvel wikia lists Thor at 6' 6", Reed at 6' 1", Thing at 6' 0", and Abomination at 6' 8".  As you can see that would make Abomination the right size.  Possibly even a little too tall believe it or not.  Thing might be a little tall too.  Anyone who reads a lot of Marvel titles knows that the size of characters differs based on which artist is drawing them at any given time.  And you might even disagree with the official marvel wikia listings. Here's how Blonsky looked in his 2nd appearance:



If you put Abomination on the counter and stand back 5 feet and look at the figure, it eliminates the detail of the torso joint and you can see the proportions actually look pretty good.

I love the figure.

Bless you and your research.  I like him much better now that I know he's not a midget version.

Much to my delight, I found A-Bomb and Dagger at my local Walmart yesterday afternoon (the entering of which violates all of my Walmart rules btw).  Only the single pair there but I'm wondering if this isn't a running change for Abomination as well? 

Also saw reports the Omega Red wave has hit in some locations.  Those I'm in need of and thank goodness I missed BBTS' presale listing...$74.99?  Seriously?
