    Avengers IW Wave 2 have been recalled back by Hasbro in our country.
    It was released 2 nights ago after the movie premiere. Some got the figures then it was recalled.

    There are stories surrounding it:
    1.) Someone posted it in an international forum/community that some peeps got pissed and called out Hasbro
    2.) Honest mistake in release. Earlier than the street date.

    Remember the news when Deadpool Wave 1 got recalled earlier this year?
    Kinda similar.

    So if that's the case..
    How come some people got a full assortment of the Apocalypse Wave?

    Having seen Infinity War I now want some of the figures however...

    I really hate the casepacks. There's no reason that the movie figures from wave 2 couldn't have been in wave 1 for an all movie wave, with the comic figures from both waves saved for a subsequent all-comic wave. Oh but 2 movie BAF's? Thanos could've been an outlier single packed figure with no BAF piece. There's your cost factoring Hasbro. Make wave 1 all IW movie figures with Cull Obsidian as the BAF. Save Songbird, Black Knight, Snake guy and others for a later comic wave with a comic BAF.

    Really wish the concept work was finished entirely earlier on as it affected the figure designs. I wish we had an Iron Man with all the weapons and an Iron Spider with the spiderlegs.

    Speaking of which, is there a hole in the ML Iron Spider's back? Iron Spider is an upcoming 4 pack so I wonder if the legs come with it. Hopefully the Iron Man in that pack has the weapons too.

    That's so weird...nothing to spoil since the movie was already released!

    That Cull Obsidian BAF looks like it would be a good base for a MCU Abomination...

    I'm seeing Infinity War in about 12 hours. But even Iron Man's box art has the wings, so I think it's quite likely that the four pack will have leggy Iron Spider and Bleeding Edge Mark 50. I guess Widow could have, like darker colors? Im not holding my breath for an alternate red haired noggin. That will probably have to come next year in another MS10 style package.

    What still intrigues me are the two Doctor Stranges coming out this year, neither of which we've seen. Again, haven't seen the movie yet, will weigh in again tomorrow.

    One of the Strange figures probably has lighter blue, he doesn't look too much different from his solo movie. Maybe a glowing stone pendant.

    Black Widow...don't count it...maybe a backpack that lets her store her sticks?

    @Shin Densetsu:
    Yeah, there was nothing to spoil really even though some peeps saying it's still Spoiler for the Ant-Man Wasp movie.
    I was like Spoil? Heck, the Titan Hero assortments for Ant-Man & The Wasp was already here 2 weeks before Infinity War premiere.

    As for the casepacks, I'll believe that somewhere along the line, Hasbro will make an MCU All-Star Wave again for IW.
    Just like they did for BAFs Hulkbuster v2.0, Ant-Man v2.0 & Gladiator Hulk v2.0.

    So here's my prediction for an MCU All-Star BAF Thanos v2.0:
    - Captain America
    - Iron Man
    - Iron Spider
    - Thor (Stormbreaker)
    - Black Widow (blonde)
    - Ant-Man v2.0 or Black Panther
    (I don't see one of these figures will get replaced by the new MCU Scarlet Witch & Vision)

    It's just Hasbro probably getting a certain market for including Malekith and Black Knight.
    You know the hard core comics fan market/niche.
    I read the there's a demand for Malekith and Black Knight among the niche market.

    Wow, you have to be a real scumbag to steal BAF parts like that.

    I also saw a Captain America missing Thanos' head. Forgot to take a pic of it. But ya know...it could also be someone who bought them and then returned them. Who knows. But yeah....Getting a Taskmaster for $10 isn't too bad....right? :D  I mean, it's already opened so I don't have to open my other one that actually has the BAF piece still in it :D

    True, true.

    And it's not like the customer service people care enough to notice there's obviously something missing from the packaging.

    Not marvel related, but I brought both of these to the attention of Target's customer service in the past few months...

    Geez. Of all the BAFs they had to steal the parts for...the movie version of Thanos?

    If you're too cheap to buy all the figures and either keep them, or sell/trade them to other people that might take/want the figures, you should probably stop collecting toys.

    I went to a local comic and collectible shop this last week and saw three Gwenpools and a couple Spider-Women loose in baggies on the store's Marvel Legends shelf (also got me a completed BAF Rhino loose there), and at least there is the people were just buying them for the Lizard BAF parts, I get it. They SOLD the figures to the shop. Not return the figure to a store for a refund minus the BAF part.

    I'm doing to watch the movie tomorrow...I hope the movie doesn't cause me to 'sink' further into the MCU collecting. Example, I passed up on the Vision 2-pack and Thor 3-pack!!!

    You do you, but I'm envious of anyone who finds the Thor 3-pack.

    Our Toys 'R' Us stores in Singapore are swimming with the IW Thor 3-Pack. So many boxes on their shelves. I'll doubt these will move, not when it is currently priced at SGD 149.99.... That's an insane price for a Thor, a small little Rocket figure and a teenaged Groot.

    You might end up getting both especially if you have the
    Thor/Valkyrie 2 packs so you can swap heads for movie accuracy
