I'm looking forward to the MU stuff especially the X-men and Nova figures

I don't think I'll be able to afford the MLs and they'll probably be quite hard to get hold of. They look really good though.

Those spiderman figures are bloody awful.

I'm more excited by the MU's than the ML's based on the variety of characters shown lot's of Avengers & Cosmic characters. Also how fucked up is it that with Thor Frog we're two characters away from the complete Pet Avengers team Laughing

I'm gonna defend Hasbro there, they need the a-listers to get & keep retailers interested in the line & at least they aren't just rehashing the same versions over & over again.

Mattel manage it with DCUC, they don't seem to throw too many batmans and supes in.

They actually did by having an "All Star" character in cases be that Bats, Supes, The Joker etc with a stand instead of a CaC figure piece to keep retailers happy, but they are changing the focus of line to well known characters only at retail & using Matty collector to focus on other characters.

The "All Star" idea is the way to go for Hasbro IMO, break the BaF between 5 characters & then give the retailer appeasing character a unique base or accessories.

YES!! Absolutely thus freeing up more space for other figs they could also slap in the same figs for pegwarming as long as they don't have a BAF part. See I want Terrax but dont want Thor, IM or GR

Oh Im sure they will, if enough people bitch about it (sign me up) Only ML seven years to make that damn Jim Lee grey everyone's been bitching about (i'd rather an exact copy of the Big Icons Jean grey that kicked ass)

I love how thye've added moostar in the mix it's such a random choice that it actually made me smile....wow that just made me sound a bit simple...oh look a ball of string

They're wasting resources making yet another Punisher figure when he's only got minor variations on a single costume. Where's ML Silver Samurai, Titania & Sauron when we need them?

They can't even manage to get out Deadpool in decent enough numbers let alone anything new.

The MU line still isn't where it should be. I see a lot of fart arsing about but not much product hitting the shelves. I thought MU was the line where we got the vehicles, playsets and giants or am I confused?

I think the vehicles & playsets thing was internet speculation based on scale rather than anything else sadly.

Can't tell if this is MU or ML, but it's a damn nice sculpt



definitely needed an upgrade for a while.
