    The alternate head is a repainted Spider-Gwen, not another MJ. So if you got the vintage, you really have three distinct noggins.

    Mr. Fantastic is starting to show up at Walgreens now.

    The Apocalypse baf wave won't be out until August.

    This. I've got the vintage version, but I might get this one too. Especially since I prefer the unzipped top look and the new head included. Also, the bike itself is awesome according to all the reviews I've seen of it. Well worth $20 extra for the bike.

    Jay C has an IW Iron Man video up!

    Sculpt is really good, articulation isn't anything special, particularly next to the Invincible suit.

    And the repulsor hands don't have hinges just like that release.

    I guess I have to hope that they're making a Mark VII for next year's movie.

    Looking at the back of the box, the art for Cap has much more accurate likeness than the actual figure, so maybe keep your eyes out for a running change? Screenshot 2018-02-10 18.14.30.png

    You can also see that Spidey's head is in a more metallic finish to match his torso than what comes in the package.

    Hey guys, for anyone who is missing BAF pieces, I have this little lot I'm trying to sell. I have no need for the parts since I won't be building these figures. PM me if anything is of interest :)

    So does this mean the Ghost Rider is due out soon too?

    BC5101EB-8878-45F5-8BB6-5AFDF5F28BD8.jpeg Wasn’t aware of this - but apparently Asia has a repack of the Planet Hulk BAF with Guardians figures like the previous Avengers Hulkbuster Wave out already

    From what I've been seeing in the FB group I'm in, people have been getting Ghost Rider and BW in the US for the past couple weeks now.

    I wasn't talking about the face, but it's Spider-Gwen hair (headband and all), not another complete MJ copy as it seemed your original comment implied.

    Man, I just ordered Medusa from their website for $12.99. Would have been sweet to get a Mr Fantastic for the same cost :lol

    Doubt it. What we've seen out of box is probably what we will get. Hasbro is notorious for pushing out stock photos airbrushed to hell in Photoshop.

    I would love to get that more accurate looking Evans portrait but have my doubts Hasbro will make a running change for it. Hopefully the neck joint is compatible with the masked heads from the Winter Soldier/Civil War Cap figures.

    When's the last time it was this disparate though? The back art is certainly done with dramatic lighting to play up the sculpt, but I don't think you could make what's in the box look like what's in that picture. If it was a Transformer now, that's a different story.

    Much like Star Wars, the face sculpts are generally there. It's the paint apps that make or break the likeness. JayC's video review shows this new Cap figure from many angles, and some of them do come pretty close to an Evans likeness. Maybe if the eyes were printed just slightly smaller, they really seem too "wide open" to me.

    Cool! You're right. I'm starting to see them online now. What's a reasonable price? I'm seeing $60 averages. That seems a little steep IMHO

    2007 Johnny Storm is what comes up first off the top of my head.

    Maybe Angel from the TRU 5 pack

    Retail is supposed to be $40 a piece for the riders. So wherever you're seeing it is asking about $20 above retail.
