Hasbro is a big meanie because they haven't announced their gold-plated Power Pack 5-pack (with Tattletale Franklin Richards) with FREE Smartship Friday giant vehicle.

And if they're going to make Man-Thing, I want a Giant-Size one.

I'm happy about this pack. I'm not so happy about the Wonder Man chosen for the pack but I guess I can live with it. I was hoping for his original green costume or at the very least his safari jacket look.

I was really hoping for Wondy's safari jacket as well. I know the WCA costume was around for a long time and used for the Marvel Legends figure, but it's just not the same. Maybe the original will turn up in a two-pack with the Grim Reaper later on.

If they made power pack a boxed set I would buy it, as long as it came with the 4 kids & franklin richards, also would love to see them do Kofi and Smartship Friday. As for the Manthing I want him packed with Howard the Duck.

I wonder how many people will get the joke, Eric.

I am happy with the Wonderman we are getting, and now would like Hollywood (Which is Wonderman, but Wonderman from the 21st Century).

Well obviously I didn't get the joke, and still don't.

Honestly? If it were up to me, we'd get 1:1 variants of the kids in their alternate power suits and the CnC would be the Bogey Man. Then I'd have Cloak and Dagger (at least) and a complete New Mutants set just so I could reenact some of those older issues.

This isn't even to mention, of course, the Jackal/Maraud two-pack or the Snark soldier army-builders...

Now, Cloak and Dagger, I'm all in for that. I'd even take some old school New Mutants. Sunspot, Wolfsbane, Cannonball, Psyche and Karma. Yes please.

But only AFTER Power Pack, in order to support Power Pack. Power Pack is the center of everything, you know. :-)

Actually wouldn't mind seeing Leech and Artie Maddicks to go with Howard the Duck and Manthing, and a Tana Niles - then we could have the Daydreamers.

I also wouldn't mind owning Franklin Richards as Psi-Lord as well.

The Avengers set, however, feels like a pass. Gold-bucket Iron Man is the only one I'd even KINDA be interested in. We already have that Thor, I see no need for Hulk with his old Frankenstein face, and they completely cheaped out with Ant Man and the Wasp. A full-sized version of either one of them would have made the set a can't-miss.


A full-sized Ant-Man and Wasp would have been great, especially since we already have insect-sized ones. But I'll still buy this set.

Even I'm not sure if I'm gonna buy it. There's only one figure there I want, and I don't think I'm gonna pay $20 (at least) for a golden Iron Man that I already have in Legends form.

I'm definitely getting the Avengers set. The Thor in that set looks different to me somehow. It doesn't look quite like the one in the Secret Wars comic pack. Maybe it's just me. :? I actually like the gold Iron Man and the Franken-Hulk. I do feel cheated on the Ant Man and Wasp though.

Are these new singles of Dr. Doom and Ultron new sculpts or are they just single pack versions of the Secret Wars figures?
