so far no, we would need to see some kind a leak to know if we get a wave 2 or not.

I also had a blast watching this flick and would be happy to see a Wave 2. Overall, these are the figures (along w Ciri from Witcher) that have opened me up to the McF universe of recent figures. I had written them off some years back due to the plastic used and lack of posability but these are super fun and look great together. Do I wish they were 6"? For sure. But McF ALWAYS goes for an off scale LOL (The Walking Dead figs were 5" instead of 6" or 3.75").

Anyway I do think Wave 1 was full of great choices.

For a Wave 2, I'd be into:
Rick Flagg
Ratcatcher 2 (w Sebastian the rat, of course!)
Weasel
Boomerang (just because of his significance as a returning character)
Amanda Waller (odd choice I know, but Viola Davis is such a great antagonist)

Some of the randos from Squad A (or was that B?) would be funny as heck too. TDK would probably be an amazing McF figure with his, uh, action feature.

SS 5 pack.

I find it pretty stupid that this doesn't include unmasked heads and King Shark's bloody arm.

I guess we know now why the heads with all Gold Label weren’t bloody. So he could pitch this.

That’s a pretty low move pulling the bait and switch with the bloody head for king Shark so it could be included here.. for $25 more than these figures normally. Still not getting the pricing on these 5 packs or really the reason while the waves are still available at retail.

Oh good Lord, the cheapness of it all. This would've been a really nice opportunity to add literally anything else new beyond the bloody Shark head. Alternate head for PDM (unhooded or...tumescent? Is that the word?), added accessories (Starros, the weird little jelly creatures), maybe an easy figure like Flag that could've shared some parts with Peacemaker. Maybe they could've even done some battle damage on Peacemaker to represent the fight with Flag. Or alternate King Shark mustache and pointing hands. Add a bird and a book too!

I wonder if no guns covers flamethrowers. They could've made like NECA and added flame effects for Bloodsport.

Is it me or does Bloodsport seem more accurately painted?

The dick move for me was McFarlane not allowing the bloody mouth KS to be purchased as a single on his site. That was what I was expecting McFarlane to do.

I really don't understand what Todd thinks he's offering here that will entice customers to overpay for a set that came out a month ago and you can buy today for 2/3 of the price on Gamestop. Not to mention his set is a preorder that doesn't come out until December. These seem destined to sit around on his website and get cleared out next year.

Having said that, the Batman Beyond Target set would make a lot of sense considering they were more limited and Batman Beyond was hard to find.

Is anyone finding any of these at Walmart? Seems like they've been hitting other stores awhile. And it's very strange these days to wait so long after a movie is out of theaters to find figures.
