I'm confused...Why is this line giving us a bunch of characters we already have?? I really thought they were on a roll with Mephisto, Watcher and the skrulls. Why not stick with characters that might not make it at retail or are larger figures.
My ideas for 2010 are:

Odin
Executioner
Lockjaw (with Luna)
Arnin Zola
Living Monolith
Kree Sentry (with crushed Skrulls)
Blastaar
Awesome Android (with the Thinker)
Dragon Man (only chance some of us will ever get to own him)
High Evolutionary (with ani-man)
Dormmamu
Hela

Because they sell better, frankly. That's what I would assume, at least. I know that most of us would just like MS to fill in the cracks of ML, but can we really expect Diamond to think that way? It's not much of a strategy.

I don't say this as a MS fan; I own exactly one, Mephisto (although I really wish I'd bought Thanos when he was around... :x ). But I understand the logic behind DST wanting to make the more iconic characters, particularly now that ML is on it's last legs.

Some of the Marvel Select are pretty good.

Thanos in particular matches well be the Marvel Legends.
