FINALLY got my hands on a Widow (thanks, radspidey).

She has to be a left over from the Iron Man 2 line, because she's very good. Almost complete articulation (missing a waist), nice accessories, and one of the best female face sculpts I've seen on the 3.75 scale. This is how the entire line should have been.

If any of you are on the fence about her, I think she's the best figure in the whole Avengers line.

Here's hoping she'll be more plentiful for people.

I concur with all of this. IF you can find her, she is definitely a must have.

When I was in Iowa last week I found the chase, unmasked Captain America figure (#4). I had never seen one before, and the only mention of it I had seen was the sold out listing on kmart.com. Also finally found the Ultimate Hawkeye. I've never seen one here in LA.

Oh... and the deluxe Chitari are hitting Walmarts.

How's the articulation looking on the single pack version?

Still holding out hope I might be able to army build them. The deluxe one's terrible.

Not sure but does not look at much different from the deluxe version in terms of articulation.

If that's the case then I get to save even more money.

That should make me happy . . . but it doesn't. :?

Saw the new wave at Forbidden Planet NYC, but I had just missed Nick, Iron Man looks good. Wish he had Downey head.

I picked up the Helicarrier a couple of weeks ago, I got it for like $60 with a coupon I had.

It's not great, but it's kind of cool. It barely fits the Quinjet, and it's flat, and the SDCC colors looked much better (and it was bigger and came with Maria Hill but cost a lot more, even more now) - but, it still has it's charge. It's pretty damn big and impressive.

Also found Nick Fury and the Chitauri. Not having knee articulation is really weird - it doesn't feel right. I don't care so much about wrist or ankle articulation, but I really wish this line had waist articulation.

Overall, there has been some good in this line, but it feels like a lot of unrealized potential. Being cheaped out on doesn't feel so good as a consumer. I like these figures, but they could have been great, and they weren't. Mixed feelings, for sure.

Wait, does Nick not have knee articulation or do you mean Chitauri.

The single packed Chitauri don't have knees or elbows, even though the back of the card CLEARLY shows them with knees and elbows. :evil:

Don't know about Nick. Haven't seen him yet.

I'm glad I canceled my preorder. Between the not-so-super articulated Iron Man (now being called Shatterblaster, I notice), the worthless Chitauri, and a Nick Fury that's not even as good as the one from the Iron Man 4-pack, I doubt I'd even be interested in these at retail.

What a thoroughly miserable little toy line.

Sorry, I meant the Chitauri. The Nick Fury actually has better articulation than most of the line because it uses the Winter Soldier body sculpt, it's only missing wrist articulation.

Of course, it's not a movie accurate costume, either, but it still looks pretty good.

I wouldn't say this has been a miserable toy line - it's just kind of a bummer. If this is the future of action figures, I want to go back to the recent past.
