A lot of great new ML figures en route including much needed villains. I can't believe Blizzard and Batroc made the cut!

Songbird! But with the short hair! :( Ah well, can't always get everything you want.

And, yes, Cal, Rescue is a nice surprise. I thought we might get her in the 3.75 line, not Legends.

Now, if we can just find them at retail. Still looking for Dani and Blade.

Well, Rescue is a must but I don't see anything else there that interests me in the slightest (okay, maaaayyyybeeee Jubilee). I know I'm not much of a Marvel fan but I'm amazed at how many of these characters I've never seen before...

Hmmm.
Accordling to some hi-res pics I've seen, Rescue and Mandarin are part of a third Iron Legends wave due out in November.

I wonder if that means another BAF? I'd love Igor (the proto-Hulkbuster seen at the climatic fight in the movie).

Also in regards to Sentry,Blade,Iron Fist, Lyra theres no release or plans as of yet. He said he's gonna try his best to squeeze them in with one of the movie waves according to where the character fits. And for the wolverine wave Rogue and phoenix force cyclops both got pulled which is why u dont see them on BBTS preorder. He plans on adding Rogue to the Xmen wave but phoenix force cyclops will never see the day since that story is long gone and cyclops has a new costume. Those were his words. Ill post what info he gave me on MU on the Mu thread.Hope this is all helpful if u guys didnt already know, shoot me some questions and ill stop by and ask him some he remembered me from previous years and is a cool guy.

Hey guys back from con and spoke to Dwight Stall Product Design manager and he said Return of ML will cancel and become something else after the Jubilee BaF wave. He said they are basically gonna follow the Iron Man/Wolverine type waves for every Movie coming out. In the next couple days he said they'll reveal some figures from the Amazing Spiderman 2 ML wave and Captain America Winter Soldier Wave, very exciting news. This will give us a wide variety of characters. He said they'll be releasing a wave for Guardians of the Galaxy, Xmen Days of the future past and and Ant man.

This all came from the MU Collector Club web site

Yeah, i'm back, it is really hard to understand Hasbro's logic sometimes, how would Hasbro even think, "the majority" of us would want a Phonix Force Cyclops in the first place when there were so many other uniforms that Cyclops has worn that would have been better for fans and probably cost less.

Sentry has been associated with the X-men, Avengers, Hulk, Fantastic Four and Spiderman according to his short lived story line so I don't understand his logic with this either.

Disappointed with the short hair songbird as well (the first time I actually may want there to be a variant)-- but overall I am impressed (and depressed-- so many glorious villian figures. Every time I try to get out they suck me back in)- and almost a complete Thunderbolts team within a year-- pretty impressive..

Is that A-Bomb on the bottom shelf a 2up(or 4 Up)-- or what-- since you notice the Blaastar behind him in the same scale.
