An online listing has shown what the lineup of Wave 2 of the MU Secret Wars comic packs might be (MarvelousNews):

Black Costume Spider-Man/Magneto
Iron Man/Spider Woman

There's also some nice pics of Wave 1 at the linky.  Definitely looking forward to picking these up.  Secret Wars is one of the first things I remember from comics growing up, and the SW line of toys was one of my favorite as a kid.

Also at Marvelous News, apparently there was a glitch at the Fury Files website, and someone found the following figures listed on their site as well:

Spider-Man 2
Iron Man (Silver)
Sub Mariner

Definitely going to pick up the Spiderwoman/Iron Man and Iron Man Silver.  I hope Spidey 2 means a better sculpt - I'd like to get him but the wave 1 version is awful.

Great feedback on transactions with Mike.  I bought a few figures at a great price - they arrived quickly and in excellent condition.  Do not hesitate to trade with the Mac.

I heard that Sabretooth will be packaged with the Blob figure, is that right?

The Wolverine is getting a solo package along with the bike.

Not sure about what kinds of multipacks are out there, but you can get numerous wolverines in many different outfits across both lines.  It should be a nice competition to see if there end up being more Wolverine or more Iron Men.

I'll keep an eye on chick buns, and yes a snowspeeder grab would be appreciated.  ;D

Do they try to keep true to the animation style of DH comics though?  The Marvel things are completely stylized, but not the DH stuff...  Most if it's made to fit with the "realistic" line of figures without alteration, if I'm not mistaken.  Didn't Hasbro even mention that back when comic packs were first touted?  I could just be misremembering that at the time, but I thought that was their gameplan they made public.

I think the "style" is meant to fit in with the rest of the basic lines, but the design (accessories, coloration, etc.) is meant to mimic the comic version.  So they're willing to paint a stormtrooper with red eyes and a blue shadow because that's how he's depicted in the old Marvel comic, but they're not going to restyle him to look "animated" like they have with the Clone Wars.  I think CW figures make sense to do a "cartoon" or animated version of because they literally are based off of a cartoon.  Comicbooks and Novel characters aren't meant to look "animated" in the same way a cartoon is - it's just the way they have to be portrayed due to the medium being used to convey the story.

I still prefer to have a character with some kind of story or meaning in the expanded SW universe than some extra alien sitting in a back corner of 1 second of movie time, but that just goes back to the fact that some people like me really like the EU and some people hate it.

My other gripe?  Where did Luke's lightsaber come from?  The timeframe of that comic is supposed to be between ANH and TESB.  But the hilt is totally wrong.  It's not like this is a case like the VOTC pilot Luke, with the Vader saber hilt.  This is some other lightsaber hilt that I've never even seen.  What gives?

This is likely due to the way his LS handle is drawn in the comic.  The figs are loyal to the comic rendition that what might be movie accurate.  I don't recall seeing blue shading and red eyes on any stormtroopers in the movie either...

We had some requests for people wanting a discount on a case, so now we got one.   $219.94 for 6 sets, save $20.  Plus there's free shipping still.

Ouch.  That would have been helpful back in September for the MN contingent.   :-\

I like this shelve of yours very much Master Jedi, hope you make your kids happy if by chance they will get all that :)

Thanks Theta!  My kids will get my collection someday if they're interested.  I sure hope that's the case - if not, they're going to be very unhappy about trying to get rid of all this stuff once I'm gone!   ;)

Never say never - you may find what you want in the Legends line eventually.  Best bet is to just keep watching for sale forums and Ebay for deals though I think.

I know Marvel is up on saying "AVENGERS ASSEMBLE" but I didn't realize it was for a Fraternity prank to see how many can fit in a space the size of a phone booth.  ;D

Ha!  Maybe I should have them coming out of a small toy car... ;)  It would definitely be nice to have more space to spread things out - maybe someday.  Wait until you see how tightly I've packed my loose transformers together... :-X

Took a few shots of my Marvel collection last night to share with you all.  I'm primarily focused on the top shelf with the ultimate representation of The Avengers & friends.  I have duplicate Thors, Iron Men, etc. on the next few shelves along with some DC figs, but they are packed in pretty tight and I'm thinking of redoing those in the near future.  For now, here's a few group shots and closer-ups of some of the custom figs.

Front Group Shot with Labels.  I'm still waiting on a custom Sersei, but should be pretty much done after that.  I'm thinking of also adding Ares, Moondragon, Quasar, & Jocasta at some point, but most of those are customs and I'm not dropping $60 on an Ares BAF.  Not yet anyway.   ;)

Here's a side shot.  You can see custom Stature and Diamondback pretty well from the side.

This is one of my first customs from a few years back - Kate Bishop AKA Hawkeye II of the Young Avengers.  Most of the following customs came from an awesome customizer named Flobbo from

Tigra.  Meow.

To (un)kill a Mockingbird.  There's a custom Starfox I picked up off of Ebay as well.

Crystal from when she was on the Avengers.

And one of my most recent, most favorite, and probably the easiest one to make - Black Widow.  BW body by Marvel Legends, head from a Danger Girls Abbey Chase.

Here's the original first photo as well - comes through a little cleaner pre-modifications.  ;D

I'm not trying to say they're not nice figures, they look great.  This whole wave I think is really cool outside of the fluorescent ewoks. 

I just don't know who any of the characters are and don't care to find out.  And it was fine when it was every now and then, but now they're putting out entire waves of EU, EU vehicles, Clone Wars like crazy, Comic Packs, exclusives, and on and on.

Well of course they're putting out waves of EU stuff Rob - why wouldn't they?  They've covered most of the figs from the films at least once if not multiple times, and the movies are yesterday's news from a marketing perspective.  There's only so many redo's and bit characters from the movies that people are going to buy, so why not fill in the gaps with EU stuff?  Frankly, the comics and novels and CW TV show are the current, unexplored areas of the SW universe, so I'd say they're right on trend.  The strategy is actually pretty smart - if you like the comics, this is a way to get you into the world of figures.  If you like figures, but aren't into EU, this is a way to get you to start checking out some of the EU comics and novels. 

I'd like to know how you feel about characters like Pons Limbic and Wioslea.  These are movie based, but have maybe a second or two of screen time.  Do you really know anything more about them than Cade Skywalker or Lumiya or Talon Karde?  Personally, I love the EU material and the figures that are starting to come along with it, but even if I didn't I think I'd rather have an Imperial Knights set over more unknown cantina denizens.   ;)

Can you list out the individual figs?  Not sure who is in Series 2...

Back at ya - thanks for the payment!  I'll get your items out tomorrow...
