I'm looking forward to Deathlok and Ant-Man myself, I already got the New Hulk, Captain America and Hyperion figures... all I need is The Wasp.

I miss a lot of the neat extras and higher quality accessories from the old MU line (those extras were on their way out anyways in recent waves) but I really like how the molded packaging poses are no longer warping the characters at the joints in the new MI pacakging. Iron Fist, for example, was particularly egregious. Rogue from the Uncanny X-Men team pack also had warped legs. Also, the sculpts have just gotten way better as the line has gone on and so I'm happy for the whole thing not to die off. I can't complain about redos (? I don't know the technical term) if they end up looking as good as the Dardevil/Bullseye comic pack.

Another plus-- the paint jobs seem more consistent, which goes without saying is also a great improvement for the fans. On the whole, there seems to be a conscious choice to appeal to collectors instead of making the packaging/branding more retail friendly. That could be a boost to the line's longevity should fan respond.

I don't mean to start a wish list this early in a thread, but does anyone know why we haven't seen a new-body Vision in this line yet? He would sell like MAD. It seems like it's a good time to fill in some blanks and remake the harder-to-find characters...

I'm thinking Vision will be making an appearance when the Avengers Age of Ultron movie comes out. If he does, I'm sure Hasbro will make the toys, Hopefully, they'll include a classic version.

The only figure I have bothered with so far is Hulk. I need to find a wasp, and the upcoming Valkyrie is extremely exciting.

Is the Iron Man any good?

I'd love to see a new Vision that didn't use the same (Union Jack?) body with sagging shoulders and what could charitably be called Charlie Horse. But if they just repackaged the same thing, I'd probably end up getting it anyways. I just wouldn't think it's the bees' knees. So far from this upcoming wave, the only one I'm indifferent to is Omega Red. Not one of my most favorite characters. He's a villain so that helps but they just released him a little while ago. How about an oldie but goodie getting a repack?

The Iron Man is the same as the modular armored MU one, or the more recent black & white one but with a crisper paint app.

A lot of people seemed to have missed Omega Red the first time around. I have already traded my extra 2 Omega Reds away.

I've gotten everything I wanted from the first wave (Grim Reaper, Hyperion and Wasp) via HTS or trade. I'm really impressed with all of them.

Mods, it would be great if you could shut down the MU page as it is done or transfer MI discussions here. It is kind of a PITA to have to monitor 2 threads for MI posts.

I may have broke my Hulk. I was trying to get the ankles to rock when the whole ankle ball turned and now I cant get it to turn back so the foot is pointing sideways. Is the ball an actual joint that can turn 360 degrees or will turning it more snap it off?

Not if he has to pay ebay prices to get a hold of them -- this reminded me I forgot to pick up the Deadpool Corps set-- (only roughly 2-3x of what it sold for)
