I got ant-man, wasp & kang. & i’m gonna try and get cassie once i find the comic figures on special. 

pretty impressed with the likeness on wasp & ant-man they look so good in person, probably the best proportions these characters have received, in person they look like imports. Bit perplexed why wasp has single jointed arms.

 

kang, has great detail & looks good but the limitation on articulation make this figure a little less arresting than the other mcu figures. 

I would like to see a scaled down cassie so she would look more in place with wasp & ant-man.

Yeah - I only got the comic based characters because I don't do movie figs.    I love Crossfire and Egghead is fun.      I do have the associated Cassie Lang parts bubbles if you don't want to have to buy all the comic figures.

This wave is pegwarming hard at all of my Targets. No wonder they don’t want to carry ML anymore.

I was able to grab Egghead, Crossfire and Ultron at at a toy show in Columbus this past Sunday. $10 each minus BAF parts which was perfect as I no longer am collecting MCU figures just comic. Egghead was missing his gun but I have plenty of others to use. I am getting way to much joy out of having Ant-Man and Egghead displayed against each other. Really love that Legends is so far along now that we get Ant-Man villains! Keep the obscure bad guys coming Hasbro!

This is an excellent wave! Love the comic and MCU figures (although Kang needed to be bigger and could have used more shoulder range of motion).

 

Particularly love this Ultron!

Started by getting all the comic figs (except for Future Ant-Man which seems a little dorky).

Now I have over half a Cassie.

Anyway, Egghead and Crossfire are total random adds and I love them! 

And isn't this the exact same Ultron as the Super Villains wave?

Well, the movie tanked.  The sales were bound to suffer.

Eternals was much worse.  And the Controller wave seemed to move quite well.

@supermonkey This Ultron has a different head and is made of silver plastic rather than painted like the Ursa Major version. It’s a trade off.

The Ursa Major wave shiny silver Ultron looks fantastic and is my favorite, but that silver paint could scratch. This Ultron has a new excellent but different head sculpt, a couple different hands, and is made of silver plastic without the paint, so it won’t scratch. So it’s good for posing and playing around. Ultron is my favorite villain, so I love to have options.

@akatsuki I got him anyway -- LOOVVVE Ultron -- just hadn't read about any diffs and couldn't see them immediately.  Thanks for the 411!

The extra hands are nice, but I like how the Kirby Krackle fit into the mouth of the old one. Haven't been able to make that work with this one.

Picked up Egghead today. Only previously got Kang from this wave. I'm not overly fussed on the BAF, don't really need more MCU Ant-Man or Wasp figs, have Ultron from a previous wave and the other comic character I don't know and unless it's something that appeals to my wackiness, I just skip most obscure ones.

Eggheads is just one of those figures that's simple but damn he looks so sinister. He could work in so many displays, and even could work as a kitbash. I'm sure someone has been swapping on a Banner or Pym head here and there. And that Egghead could go onto another body to make some sort of other villain. I'm just a sucker for these kinds of figures (loved army building Hammerhead in a similar way as he was just so overstocked).

Anyways, jumped on this guy and Photon from The Marvels wave. Mainly because I feel like these waves won't hit in large number, so may be a get now or forever hold your piece kinda a deal. The rest of both waves are pretty dull for mine, so these were two, other than Kang who was critical for my MCU collection, that I wanted. So glad I grabbed Egghead, just one of those figures that just is enhanced when he's in hand.

I only picked up Egghead from this wave due to his Masters of Evil association. But I admit that Ultron and Crossfire are tempting. Future Ant-Man...not so much.

I read the story Future Ant-Man is from after the figure was announced since I knew I'd end up picking him up. If the costume details that are painted on had been sculpted he actually would have made for a pretty striking figure. But of course I understand why such a minor character wasn't prioritized like that.

Really hope we can get an Irredeemable Ant-Man (which would definitely require dedicated sculpting!) one of these days.

I dont really care about peg warming and such, but I mean is anyone really surprised people are not jumping on such can't miss figures as Egghead and Crossfire? The wave came well after hype for the movie was gone, given it performed not great, and the comic figures are either niche characters or in Ultron's case essentially a redeco of one people already had. So I cannot say this is some shocking result
