Two more waves (not including wave 3) for this year would be awfully nice...

I miss the days when Jesse Falcon used to post on the boards, misspellings and all :mrgreen:

Good to see he still has a place at Disney Marvel.

I bet we just get Wave 4 and a couple figures from the first wave of 2013. I don't think we'll get past 4 waves this year.

Great. Now the BAF is completely gone, replaced by those Avengers stands. Why doesn't anyone want to give us value for our money anymore?

yeah I saw this coming, I knew they $15-$18 with a BAF was not going to last, I think it only made it for the 1 st 2 waves b/c they were so far into the production and design.

I guess the new perk replacing BAFs are the shared characters that has worked so well thus far :roll: Getting the BAF was great, but since they can pack large characters like Marvel's Wrecking Crew members on a card and that's pretty much what we have been getting for BAFs lately, I can get by without them, despite the loss of value. It may have the adverse effect of me no longer needing to buy a full series though (I am looking at you, Drax!).

As for the stands, I like stands. But if you are going to make stands, give me something I can use. I know some people like these stands, but they are just cumbersome and have no place on a shelf full of figures. McFarlane still makes the best stands -- simple and round with the perfect circumference for a 6-7 Inch action figure, flat to maintain a uniform height and clear, which is just my preference.

DANG! I didn't even notice those in the picture!

The black & white guy is Noh-Varr. I like him and Red She-Hulk. The others? No so much. I was never a fan of the Toy Biz Sentry, but I did not consider him one that needed to be remade, like Scarlet Witch, Wonder Man, Black Panther, etc. Unless he is back in comics?

I just found a MOC Toy Biz Archangel the other day while cleaning. His body was skinny, but he was good enough. With the SDCC X-Force exclusive box set, I guess getting a regular version was a no brainer though.

I don't really need a white costume Iron Fist either, but I am sure people won't mind him.

And Hasbro's 2012: The Year Of Suck continues. :evil:

Oh well, more money for Legos! I'll be skipping Punisher and Deadpool for sure. Doom I'll have to see better pictures to decide.

We're not off to a great start here. :?

So far I'm a bit underwhelmed... But let's not forget... Jean Grey and Stryfe are still in the mix somewhere.

Those pics are way too small. I can't distinguish any of the details. I'll just wait until someone posts some hi res pics.

Okay, now that we have some decent images:

IRON MAN: My favorite armor. Glad we are finally getting it, but those boots/feet are too big. The "moon boot" look came a couple years later. Layton designed that armor and the boots were much more compact. I give them a B+ on that one.

DANI MOONSTAR: Is just boring looking. I see a spear (where's her bow) and a big ugly yellow X. Just not a good version of her IMO. C-

USAGENT: Another figure I've been waiting for. They did a solid job on this one, even if there appears to be a lot of reuse. No qualms about him at all. A

DOOM: Looks decent. I still like the original one I got in those early waves of ML, but it might be time for an upgrade (never did get the FF version). B+

BLADE: Very good. Didn't get the first one, so I'll be picking up this one. A-

MYSTIQUE: Man, that just can't seem to nail female faces, can they. She's not as bad as Viper, but still . . . The rest of her looks pretty good, though, and I like this costume better than the white one. C+

DEADPOOL: Have the original, but might try for the X-Force version. He'd look good with the X-Force 3 pack. Probably won't be able to find him, though. B

PUNISHER: PASS. Hate that character.

Of course, no BAF really sucks, but I'll be able to skip some now without regret.

So ML Wave 3:

Iron Man, USAgent, Blade are must buys for me.

Mystique and X-Force Deadpools are probable buys.

Doom and Moonstar are iffy right now. Maybe they'll look better in person.

BTW according to the tags, Wave 3 will be in October and we won't get another wave until Spring 2013. I guess three Waves a year will be the new norm? :roll:
