I just got my case last week or so, and haven't had the chance to crack it open yet. I was looking forward to this wave quite a bit, though I could do without another Spider-Man. I agree though, this was the wave that was supposed to come out in April, but we're just now getting it. Anymore, it's depressing to go to the stores, as every line out there has been stagnant. Star Wars has been stuck with the first wave of the year since it came out, never getting low enough for a restock. MU is a waste since I buy from Big Bad Toy Store, and The Avengers haven't been stocked in ages. I saw the Ultimate Hawkeye one time, and the paint apps were terrible, so I left it on the pegs, and haven't seen it since. I have no real hope of finding Black Widow or Fury at retail. I've been itching for new entries to my MU shelf, and it's about time they arrived! Great review, as always!
I Would love to have that hulk for a custom gammorean figure!
I still see a Skaar from time to time and I understand those figures do make great Gammy customs.Zed, awesome review, I really do enjoy seeing you uncover every stone with these. On the front page.As for me, I see your points about that new hulk but that bit of purple pants below that green knee looks a little wonky to me. I think I would have liked if they had just ended the pants above that knee. Awesome review though.Matter of fact I enjoyed this one so much, if you could figure out how to give me a 100 by 100 pixel image (what I use for the front page buttons) of both of these together I can put it in our Imperial Review Archives.
True bean's mate! You would need a huge head!
I've not had any faith in Hasbro in quite some time. The MU line is my favorite because they're so often new, with the exception of the myriad of Iron Men, Spider-Men, and so on. I've felt doomed with the Star Wars line ever since it was announced that they had the license until 2018. There's only so much "new" they can do in more than 20 years. And since like every other corporation out there, the bottom line is worth more than the product they put out, it was only a matter of time before they obliterated the line. They truly feel that 8 repackaged Vaders a year is going to sustain the line because "it's the children that drive the market, not collectors." Good luck with that, hasbro! In the meantime, you do these figures justice with your reviews, I look forward to each and every one!
