This wave is going to get me, isn't it?
I got the always welcomed "Preorder processing soon," email from BBTS for the figures I purchased in this line: Magneto, Rogue, and Gambit. I assume the others are coming as well. Nice not to have to run around searching high and low at retail.
I got Wolverine, Storm and Rogue processing soon. Would've been nice if BBTS waited for me to open the one I have.
I've got these preordered with Amazon and I am in no big hurry to receive them. They'll probably stay in the package for a while anyway.
I would like to see some in-hand Magneto pictures, though
Same here, I pre-ordered the whole wave from BBTS and got the "pre-order processing soon" email for all of them. I basically did it as a placeholder until I could decide who and what I actually wanted. Now I have to make a decision before they hit. I might be leaning towards only Magneto and Wolverine - but not sure yet. I was hoping that I'd see reviews of them in hand before I had to make a decision.
I've got them POed at Pulse and Amazon. Willing to wait til they show up there rather than go nuts hunting or switching to BBTS. I'd love to see some in-hand pics soon! Comparisons please!
I got a processing soon email for Wolverine from BBTS as well. So much for the estimated November release date lol. I'll get the rest on sale or do without. I like the versions I have well enough. And these may look a little off with the regular crew. Now when Morph is released, I will absolutely get him.
I heard someone mention the stubble in a video. It may be my eyes from old age, but I can barely see anything there and I have brand new eyeglasses. Under softer lighting, like the living room, it's not too noticable. A little more under lighting in the kitchen or bathroom 😆. I need to have light shining directly onto his face to really see them. The biggest issue I have with this wave at the moment is Magneto's clunky feet.
I took a couple photos before running out the door. The paint details are really unnecessary when you get down to it.
The tips of his hair and mask are actually kind of sharp. They seem to be a harder plastic. I think it's possible to damage the mask tips if not careful, especially when removing from tray, which is something that may have happened to my mask head.
Man, I'm just here debating whether or not to cancel Wolverine and I thought I had another month to think on it. He looks good, just more of the same. Seeing video reviews of him side by side with other Wolverine figures, I find myself asking, "Don't I already have this?" Yep, I guess I'm at that stage in life.
I really like this Wolverine, but I actually sold off all ML Wolverines and had only the Mafex and Mezco Wolvies, so I'll likely buy incremental improvements to brown and FA costumes if Hasbro releases them.
(Forgot I have the training uni)
I caved and ordered Wolverine. Why? I don't know, but it looks good. I'll replace the Apocalypse wave version with it in my 90s display.
I only had Magneto and Wolverine preordered.
I am particularly interested in how the new Magneto looks. I want to see if a head swap with the Onslaught head looks ok, since I love that shadowed look for him.
I don't love that unmasked Wolverine head, but it's still probably one of Hasbro's three best attempts.
