I believe they are doing the 5 points of articulation for Cap, Iron Man, Thor, and Hulk.

I didn't see your vote Zim. Haha.

On the front page they showed the MU ones with more articulation.

I'm definitely getting the Red Skull and the Leader. I have the Red Skull from the movie like but I need a more Comic accurate one.

Even though Most are repaints I think they look good.

I will pick up Cap, Iron Man and Hawkeye. Not sure yet about Falcon, Hulk and the Widow because Im cool with the MU ones.

The Avengers All-Stars are the garbage 5 POA figs. I will be passing.

The Avengers Assemble figures are a big maybe. They mostly seem to be repaints that aren't too exciting. The Black Widow looks pretty cool, and I'll buy the Leader if he comes out in the second wave. The others I will wait and see.

Very excited for this line, not overall but that Red Skull is perfect. A dream figure in my book. The Hulk they showed at ToyFair is different from what they released but I'm still going to pick him up, if only because he seems larger than previous Hulks but not as well done as the last 3 MU ones(60's Hulk from the 3 pack, new single Hulk, and WWHulk).

Easy pass for me but this is a smart move by Hasbro as it coincides with the movies/cartoon and is more aimed at kids.

The marks another line off the list as I am pretty much done with action figure collecting except vintage and MP Transformers.

Now I can focus on high end comics. They take up less room anyway :)

Red Skull and Hawkeye are the only ones that I have to get. Really solid stuff on that front. I'll likely pick up Black Widow as well because as much as I like the last MU release, I really don't like how all the female figures have the exact same head sculpt. That's seems stingy, even for an industry where repurposing molds and parts is how you play the game.

Is the Avengers Assemble Cap the same buck as the recently redone MU Cap? How many Cap figures can Hasbro have floating out there at any given moment? I'm a pretty big Cap fan and even I can't take this cornucopia of Cap figures.

I care not for the 5 point articulated figures, but I will purchase the larger versions when released... The Red Skull is a must have for me.

I got Black Widow and Falcon from Amazon yesterday. They're both very well done. I'm very impressed with Widow's headsculpt.

Are they all 5 POA or are some more articulated?

The Avengers All-stars are 5 POA. Those aren't the ones I got. These are the same articulation as MU. They're really good looking figures too.

Yeah, I just picked up Red Skull and Black Widow from Amazon. The pics that accompany the product page show all the POA and make the figures look all-around great. Hopefully the packaged product, with the common warping and bad paint apps, can compare. So weird that the rebranded figures are available widely but finding the MU line-up at retail is like searching for an endangered species in the wild.

Is the card back the same on the 5POA and the better figures?
I don't think I've seen these more articulated figures yet, just Iron Man, Cap, and Hulk. Pics would be appreciated.

Saw those 5 POAs for the first time today-- those things look god awful-- the sculpts are horribly off..

At least the Wolverine Line in target is only 6.00

It's weird that the Thor movie line looks to be the same quality as the previous Thor movie line in regards to paint apps and articulation but the Wolverine line looks like crap.

Wolverine comes from Fox and Thor comes Disney.It could be a way the House of Mouse is trying to get the X license back
