Elektra is easily among my top 10 ML of the year. The rest of the wave is forgettable.

I am actually enjoying the 5 figures I picked up from this wave...

Elektra & Ben are easily the best of the batch. Spider-Woman & Chasm (other than only 1 pair of hands) are pretty good. Miles is OK.

Probably skipping Tarantula, and no interest in The Rose.

Are there better shots of Tombstone and Hallow's Eve?

Oh Man, that Tombstone is exactly what it needed to be. Fantastic. Someone said they need to redo Morlun on that buck. Good idea. I like the new buck but having some mental blocks over what additional characters they could use it for.

I gotta hand it to them... they found a way to sell me a second Tombstone figure.    That suit looks good.   

 

Really dig the look of Hallow's Eve even if the name sounds like a feminine hygiene product.

 

This is a strong wave even if I don't love having multiple characters they've already done.   Need a few more new, never been done Spidey characters.

Tombstone looks good.  I like my custom better.  The old head on the Hyperion body was way better.  The Jack O lantern looks decent.  I wish his shoulders stuck out wider from the sockets.  I also HATE how the calves are as wide or wider than the thighs from the side.  NO one has calves like that.  Bad anatomy.  Looks OK from the front.  SO many body molds are like that now.  PLEASE stop that.  Thank you.

Hasbro went all McFarlane on that Tombstone:  A trigger finger hand with no gun!  Looks good though.

@panthercult You do know that Hallow’s Eve is what Halloween was originally called? “All Hallow’s Evening” shortened to “Hallowe’en”.

This is the Tombstone I’ve wanted from the beginning. I love it and can’t wait to add it to my collection.

Assassin and Old Man Spidey can also be checked off my Spiderverse want list. Hopefully they do Spider India and Steampunk Spider-Woman.

Spider-Man India and Lady Spider are also my two most wanted Spider-Verse characters now that Assassin is on the way. Followed closely by the Spider-Man India from ATSV, though I'm expecting one of the import companies might get to him before Hasbro does.

As far as I'm concerned, this new wave is a huge winner, especially when compared to the previous one that started this thread. Not only in terms of character choice, but also accessory count. Every single one at least has extra hands, but most have much more than that. This actually might be the first wave in years where I pick up every figure in it.

...MANNNN... I am SO Stoked about Jack O' Lantern!!  FINALLY the version that works for both the Classic Macandale AND "Mad Jack" Burkehart/Maguire Beck version!  Hallows'Eve looks fun too, and the Tombstone looks fabulous!

I’m likely passing on this whole wave, but many do look nice; I don’t care about Jack O’Lantern or Tombstone enough to buy a second one but Tombstone’s certainly gotten a definitive upgrade!
