Thanks for the info.  The two packs are $20, so I guess the Bike just takes the place of another figure.  :-\

Interesting.  You have to wonder if Hasbro saw what an utter sales bomb that All Star Avengers figure assortment turned out to be.  Especially since the Avengers Age of Ultron 2-packs seem to have been much better received. 

This version of Cap has considerably more articulation that the AAoU All Star figure.  And it's not a blatant reissue of that Winter Soldier version of Cap that came in the 2-pack.  Still, I think the Black Widow should have come with the motorcycle in the Age of Ultron line.  It fit the storyline of the movie and would have been a cool offering.  Anyhow, I'm looking forward to this release.

There is a 3.75 inch Captain America with a Motorcycle set at TRU for $19.99. Looks, well, not worth $19.99.

Saw this in a TRU store today.  And I'm getting the sense that this might be a TRU exclusive, kind of like the Avengers - Age of Ultron 2-packs were.

The Captain America figure actually looked pretty good.  Although the uniform does look pretty dark in color.  As for the motorcycle?  Eh.

I'm hoping for an Unmasked version of the Winter Soldier for this line.  The one we got in the last Cap line was kind of lacking.  But the articulation on this new Cap looked solid.

I saw it at WalMart so it isn't an exclusive

Think this is the right thread?

I finally found NorthStar today at Gamestop unexpectedly. I figured he had to be out somewhere, I see them all over eBay.

Stoked to have most of Alpha Flight now. Shaman I can live without. Sasquatch in this scale seems like a glaring omission to me though.

I was surprised to find the Vision, Gamora armored Spider Man today   First time I've seen this wave.

Found a freshly stocked case of this wave at a local Walmart last night. Grabbed Armored Spidey and left everything else (they had 1 of each and 2 Visions)
