I agree, that is something that stinks about the box sets too. I wanted to pick up the X-Men set to get a Rogue, as well as the labcoat/glasses for Beast, but I couldn't justify spending that much for basically one figure. On the other hand, I guess it comes in handy if you don't have a lot of the figures too. I'm really looking forward to the Spidey/Sinister Six pack, because I only have a "Parachute" Spidey now, and the one in the set is different, and I get 6 baddies right off the bat too. At least they are putting a few more "new" figures in the sets (at least ones like the Spidey set), with a different Green Goblin, Black Cat, Electro, etc. Hopefully they won't be too tough to find, I never did see the first round of box sets around here last year.
