The figures in this wave are so colorful and pretty. All the metallic reds, blues, and greens. Looks like candy.

Anybody have some good comparison shots of Ursa and Sasquatch? I'm rolling a couple of ideas around...

I’m surprised Ursa has single/swivel knees.

It looks like they have some good clearance room between the knee and the calf, so they may get as much range as a double-knee. Or at least sufficient range of motion for a giant bear-man.

Yeah, they're shaped well so he can get decent enough range out of them. He can still stand with the knees completely bent because of the good ankle movement. You can get him face to face with a regular sized figure with it.

Ironheart is the real standout of the wave for me. Very clean lines on all of the paint, great looking unmasked head sculpt. Outside of the way the thigh cuts break up the armor all of the articulation looks great. She's definitely one of those figures you will keep at your desk to pose and fiddle around it.

Darkstar is simple but nice, I would have liked the additional yellow piping down her arms/sides and the collar but it always seemed inconsistent from panel to panel let alone different artists. Her, Ultron and Guardsman have that good "Fell straight out of the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe" look.

Every once in a while, Hasbro absolutely crushes a wave. I think they managed it with this set and the bad guys wave.

I like that the Marvel Legends team used different bodies for these characters. Kudos to them.

Looks like he suffers from the color change syndrome on his legs and arms. Is it just me or is it becoming more common? Smh.

Well it looks like Ursa Major has a heavy wash on his torso to help accentuate all those crazy stomach muscles so I’m sure it’s got nothing to do with the plastic.

Im surprised that Ursa is a totally new mold. I thought it was a Sasquatch/wendigo with some new bits.

Plus, maybe the variance in color is on purpose to help break up all the brown? Although you think some simple shading as transition between the two colors would help make it look intentional.

I had to approve a delay from Target regarding this wave.

I didn’t even notice any color difference until I took those pictures. The photos make it look significantly worse than it is in-person.
