    Found these tonight at my local WM. Florida never gets anything first, so I doubt it's truly a first sighting, but there's no news article for them aside from their official images and preorders at BBTS.

    This wave includes Spider-Man (car), X-Force Wolverine, and Hulk (bulldozer). The Punisher, Human Torch redeco, and Thing bulldozer are shown as a cross-sell on the back, so I suppose we'll see them shortly. I only picked up Spidey tonight.

    Wish they'd up & give Wolvie a better mold rather than just repainting it. I want a Wolverine related TF badly, but the choices are an instant pass.

    I want them to make an Ultron that can turn into 6 other versions of Ultron.

    Cool. I was wandering when this wave would start showing up. If my local Target get's this wave, I may get the Wolverine repaint. With a new head, and some added minor paint apps, he'll make a nice Classics Trailbreaker.

    Yep, brain fart. Was thinking of the other Hulk mold.

    Which I'd like to get in red one of these days. :)

    A humvee. He's a repaint/retool of Captain America (has a skull added to the front/chest, and a gun instead of the shield).

    The lack of detail is what gets me the most. The Alt modes on them seem to have very basic detailing on them, if there were as detailed as the ROTF bots, I'd buy a few.

    I know right? If they ever go on sale eventually I'd buy a few but their not worth their current price at all. I've always found the SW crossovers to be better.

    Ah okay. Thought so, but I figure I'd check. That was a winner of a mold, I honestly wouldn't mind if they repainted it a third time w/ a new head as the Thing.

    so much wrong with this.......the marvel ones are worth the price, they are bigger than a deluxe but smaller than a voyager, they are like the revival of the mega class (and priced right)......i got the human torch and captain america and they are some of the funnest figures i have ever gotten.....get them....the star wars figures (minus commander cody, the melinium falcon, and the death star) all suck.......marvel ones are win except for the fact they keep releasing the same characters over and over and over again.....where is dr. doom and deadpool? if i get those i will be happy.....i want the thor plane.....got to get that soon

    These have been available for weeks now in the Philippines and they're all marked down to 700PHP ($14.50 US) but I passed on all of them. I only have one spot per character on my display shelf. I already have the Hulk Tank so I don't need another Hulk. I don't like the Spidey Car and I think the Spidey Bike in the Spiderman Movies color is a lot better. I like the X-Force Wolverine repaint but I'll still pick yellow and blue spandex Wolverine over any other color.

    I'll wait for the next waves to come. I'll definitely get me a Thing Bulldozer, Blue Torch Jet, Punisher Hummer, when they come out.

    This line needs more villains and a Vehicle to Heroine or two. We haven't gotten any more villains since Venom and Carnage and they're the same mold. There are so many gorgeous heroines in Marvel's vault that it would be a shame to not use them. I want a Doctor Doom Naval Destroyer and an Emma Frost Diamond Porche.

    Much as I dislike the Star Wars crossovers, at least they have more variety of characters than these Marvel ones. Can't fault them for knowing what side their bread is buttered on, but it's hard to get interested in a line that's basically just variants of Spider-Man, Hulk and Wolverine, with one or two other characters thrown in.
