    I can kind of see them doing this homage to the 1st few waves due to roster also. Very easy way to get the Avengers, some of the F4 and X-men back on shelves. We know how Disney and Hasbro do on Marvel anniversary years though…..

    “Anniversaries? MOLD REUSE? Core characters? We can save money and pass the savings to the custo-“

    Disney/Hasbro: HOLD MAH BEER!

    “But who oh who would be a willing partner? We need a big retailer… we need….”

    Target: *sends Dom Toretto fam meme*

    I gotta say I'm really impressed with the troop builder 2 pack. That's the way to do it. Now share that with some other lines...

    Yeah, it is cool. I'm tempted to buy them and I'm not even a Shield fan. :lol

    Considering I dropped $80 on MAFEX Cyclops because I felt Hasbro didn't do the Jim Lee costume justice with either release (buckles are loose and keep falling and no optic blast head/effect?)... yeah, if they went all out I could pay deluxe prices for say Captain America or someone else who is a personal fan favorite.

    :lol  Yeah, sounds about right.

    I'm just jonesing for them to make a Dan Ketch GR though!

    I was afraid the ultimate rider subline would die out before Hasbro got to him and we still haven’t seen the Hawkeye from that subline…..

    Yeah... unfortunately from what I'm hearing Ultimate Riders may just get a standard release as deluxes now. Supposedly after a couple of heavy clearances of Ultimate Riders releases the brick and mortar retailers have lost interest. So, any future characters with vehicles that would have gone into that line will be released under the deluxe moniker going forward. Similar to how they did MODOK. That's the current rumor anyway and there's some stock to it since Hawkeye was supposed to be released at the tail end of 2020 and here we are more than halfway through 2021 and there's been no mention of him at all. That's a lot of time to pass if it was just a delay like some were hoping.

    On Fwoosh, I saw someone suggest using the white shield troop head for a more normal Hood. Seems like a decent idea.

    They said she required more extensive tooling and they were trying to find a way to get her out later. TBD.

    If it’s a mixture of early waves, I have to imagine wave two or at least the non-Namor figures are out of the running for being done recently or coming out before whatever-this-is does next year.

    Could also be a smattering of random figures across the most nostalgic releases that are included, too, but I have a hunch that Toad’s in the mix no matter if it’s strictly Wave 1 or not.

    Good call on bringing up that next year is the 20th anniversary! As an aside, loved how just after our discussion of the early Hasbro HeroScape stands, they got a highlight in this stream.

    With only 4 days left I really hoped they would show off the follow Galactus tier, if there even is one.

    *sigh* If NWH Jameson came with a separate Raimi Trilogy head, he would've been an insta-buy. Alas, Hasbro doesn't love us like that.

    Since those are the two in the main cast with the most fame/clout/whatever, I wonder if they put certain limitations on the use of their likenesses. I read somewhere that Benicio del Toro only granted Hasbro a one-time use of his face for the SDCC exclusive Collector figure, but that could just be hearsay.

    I wish they'd have revealed the rest of the Galactus stretch goals as well. Surfer looks nice, but I was never going to be too excited for him, as I'm fairly certain someone will make another 6-inch Silver Surfer figure within my lifetime.
