    I'm beyond excited for the Jubilee Marvel Legends figure. :D First chance I get, I'm buying her.

    I mainly collect X-men and I can’t wait for Gambit, Blink, Jubilee (I hope she looks better in-hand), Forge, Weapon X and Walgreens Mystique.

    Not that excited for the new X-men BAF. The Caliban I wanted was the thin, waif-y kind. Plus that costume is horrible!

    Also there’s other Reavers they could’ve started with but Hasbro obviously wanted to reuse those Deathlok legs!

    I’ve preordered Archangel locally from EB Games and they usually get figs ahead of the US (I got The Thing from them months ago!) but not this time. Archangel is streetdated Oct 1 but still hasn’t shown up in stores! :/

    Not sure I want a black-costumed Walgreens Exclusive Emma Frost. Also not a fan of the Magik black costume. But I guess I’ll have to settle on both.

    Can’t wait for Xavier in hover chair. Plus that green suit is just a thing of beauty!

    Wendigo looks blah! The Guardian paint apps look way too shiny. But I’m interested to hear what the rest of the wave looks like. I really can’t get myself to buy another variant Deadpool figure just to complete a Build-A-Figure. I only got Kickpool (aka X-men Deadpool) because that yellow/blue costume can be used for any number of Uncanny X-men 275 male X-men custom characters. Perhaps Banshee. But I refuse to buy Lady Deadpool at full price. I’ll just wait for her to go on clearance lol.

    Lastly, I missed out on Silver Surfer. I went toyhuntin in Texas in August for two straight days, hitting up what seemed like 15 Walgreens in the area. And no such luck. On the third day, he showed up online but I got lazy and missed out.

    Any word on when the Mr. Sinister and Nightcrawler Legends are coming out? I love the sculpt of the Sinister figure. I just wish his boots and gloves weren't black, but its a major step up from the ToyBiz one

    X-Men is in general my favorite Marvel thing. So all of these new figures have me beyond geeked out. I'm READY.

    On the fwoosh, they said they're do to be released in August. I'm so pumped for them both, especially Nightcrawler.

    You mean Rescue's neck is too long for Pepper's head?

    Don't think that's such a good likeness for Gwyneth Paltrow. The Hot Toys version was better but not perfect.

    I think they should've not given her so much of a frowning expression. I know that maybe they wanted to capture a particular scene from Iron Man 3, but most of the time Pepper is not frowning, so that expression doesn't seem very representative of Gwyneth, who is usually much more smiley. I don't think these toys should focus too much on one expression from a photo but should go more for an overall likeness as we know the actor or actress. That's why they often don't end up looking like the celebrity.

    The above photo isn't too bad, but on other photos of the Hot Toys version from different angles (more head on) it doesn't really look like her - eg

    I need that Collector in my life!!! That is going to set me back. This has been a rough year on my wallet, LOL! I only collect MCU figures, and I just need to get my hands on the Spider-Men from FFH I pre-ordered. Then I will be caught up on waves. But I need to complete Molten Man and Endgame Hulk still :dry:

    The Marvel 80th line is going to hurt, too. I plan on getting all the packs, though I may just get Skurge from the Hela/Skurge pack (I don't need 2 Helas that are mostly the same) and I may do the same for the Grandmaster. I am not sure if I want to keep the SDCC version or the M80th with Korg version. I guess it will depend on the set's overall cost vs how much Collector will be to get solo.
