@e-rock I want you to be right but I also tend to be really pessimistic when setting my expectations for these waves. That's partly because Hasbro does things that seem counter intuitive to me (and the Disney plus waves, more often than not, fall into that for me) and partly because of I'm wrong, I get to be pleasantly surprised. 

It's also probably something to do with being so spoiled by the 2023 leak list and now having next to no idea what, if any, MCU plans they have for 2024.

I get it lol! But in this case I am confident Loki is getting some form of representation in the next wave. Even if that ends up just being a new Loki figure and nothing else, I expect there to be something there. At least when the 2nd wave of D+ happened, What If was the new thing and Hawkeye was on deck, but Hawekeye still got figures in the very next wave after. I don't think we are getting another wave where 6 figures are dedicated to 1 show ever again cause there is just too much content and we are going to end up getting at least 1 figure for anything new that comes out. Even if that 1 is just the title character. Which is what I expect to happen for Echo. I doubt Echo gets anything other than the Echo figure unless they opt to do another Kingpin release or something. Even Daredevil whenever he comes, I expect a She-Hulk look to his next figure and then probably next we get of him is from his own show (unless Freshman Year gets one....we also may end up with Freshman Year figures in a wave after that airs)

I really hope they do an all new mold for Daredevil. They can release it with Echo (spoiler I guess but he's in the trailer), then again for his show with an unmasked head, then finally the yellow repaint in a catch-up wave.

I would also like to see an all-new Daredevil at some point. I think we may get that come Born Again. He most likely gets a new suit for that show, so I bet that gets the bells and whistles

And I'm fine waiting for that. Maybe they could get away with repaints of the Netflix one with a new head (that will then be used on the Born Again figure) for Echo and She Hulk.

Not Legends, but I just saw a bunch of ZD Toys everyone probably knew about but I'd forgotten. Several Legion armors like Heartbreaker, but also Whiplash mark 2. They're 1/10 scale, so a little too big but the only War Machine figure I own anymore is a ZD Toys Mark 1 and I feel he gets away with being a little bigger than everyone.

Really tempted by that Whiplash even though I'd given up on hasbro making one and had crossed him off my wishlist.

There are a few listed on aliexpress right now, between $40-something and $50-something, depending on if you want it boxed or loose and with all accessories or just the whips.

ALSO, be careful since searching for "whip" on aliexpress may raise some questions for anyone peeking at your screen.

https://www.aliexpress.us/item/3256806091192703.html?spm=a2g0o.productlist.main.3.48181acdhywQul&algo_pvid=63f27fe2-a35e-4faa-8b48-b18e856d3041&algo_exp_id=63f27fe2-a35e-4faa-8b48-b18e856d3041-1&pdp_npi=4%40dis%21USD%2156.20%2144.96%21%21%21398.86%21%21%40210318b917016549952901414ecef2%2112000036578595073%21sea%21US%210%21AB&curPageLogUid=3e30wrnqDjP9

some of them are listed with other figures to choose from, so they reel you in with $30, but that's actually one of the Iron Men.

I didn't need that. I want a Mickey Rourke version. But now that I know this exists... crap!

Thanks for posting that, Ru! I love that the link makes you confirm you're over 18 to view. 🤣  That's one sexy fig, though! I'm always a little wary buying things from AliExpress, but I've had good luck so far, and if it has your stamp of approval, I may consider it. The scale thing doesn't bother me- it's a suit of armor, so it's all good if it's a little bigger than the people around it. Might be the closest we ever get to a Legends Whiplash.

I agree that it may be the closest we get.

I think I have ordered from AliExpress maybe a dozen times. I had only one bad experience and it was simply something taking longer to ship than projected. Item was still fine and matched what I ordered etc.

And the ZD Toys figures, I feel, have come a long way. They still feel kinda hollow,and thus a little "cheap", but the sculpts and figures they offer are great at least.

And in my mind, he wasn't Iron Monger size but Whiplash in the armor WAS pretty big.

I'm thinking the most likely candidates for Loki season 2 are Loki, end scene Loki, and maybe a redo of Sylvie and Mobius. Since they released Zendaya-MJ as a store exclusive first and then a new one in a wave, I could see them doing the same for Mobius.

Hopefully they give us an updated body when they do Mustard Daredevil from She Hulk. I don't know much about Echo but I don't think that show will get many figures outside of the main character. I think Agatha might only get a store exclusive since I've seen her figure for a heavier clearance than the other ones in the wave.

@meanstreak I agree about Echo, and would love a new Daredevil sculpt. And I am curious to see if they even give us another Agatha figure. I could see it, even if more of a civilian look, but I'm also still feeling like D+ stuff may get more of a shaft going forward.

@e-rock have you had a bad experience with them?

I guess in terms of Agatha, it depends on how memorable the characters end up being. I'm sure Joe Locke (I think that's his name) will end up being in multiple things, as his inclusion in a Young Avengers seems pretty certain, so a figure for the show doesn't feel as necessary. I have no idea how big or crucial Patti LuPone or Aubrey Plaza's characters will end up being, but I'd take a figure of them just to have one. I mean, come on- a Patti LuPone action figure? Not sure how well she'd sell with the masses, but as a theater kid, that's too good to pass up!
