Mr. Sinister came out of nowhere, but I dig it.

Iron Spider looks cool- I skipped the last one, so I'm happy to get this version. Not into the deco on the animated X-Men figs, but the packaging is super cool. Happy for those of you who are excited for these!

YES!!!!! I’ve been screaming for iron spider for the LONGEST time and we finally got it and it looks absolutely BEAUTIFUL including the arms. Only thing I can nitpick is that they went with 3 instead of 4 (which is technically comic accurate I guess, but 4 makes more sense. I need 2 at least. SO PSYCHED!!!

Availability counts from the web code are 7,500 for GI Joe Cobra Officer and 13,950 for Sinister. Clearly Sinister will be easy to get after 8 PM, but the Joe figure has already sold almost 3000 so it's going fast.

Sinister is a straight-up repaint of the Caliban version right? I see no new tooling or sculpt; even the hands are the same.

Where will Iron Spider be sold? He's not on Pulse with the others that just popped up.

Pretty low key - showed renders for Iron Spider and VHS Mr. Sinister. Having Pharoahe Monch on was cool as he seemed genuinely stoked on the figures!

Sinister has a new neck / upper body. Looks like Iron Spidey is going to be part of the anniversary program next year.

They said the release format for Iron Spider would be revealed later - he's not going up today.

Sinister is slightly different - his neck is exposed whereas the Wendigo wave figure had the armor ribbing going all the way up.

Quoting Ryan really badly - "Coming out in 2022 - Is it part of a wave? Is it part of a box set or multi-pack? Stay tuned"

Definitely hate myself for my weakness - but ended up pre-ordering Sinister because of the slight retooling making it more than just a repaint (that's the excuse I used - though it didn't work with the Wolverine and the animated head, so.. I dunno)

Really don't want to get sucked in to buying these, but the packaging is pretty nifty. Sigh

The livestream was a lot of fun. Cool behind the scenes information.

Love the Iron Spider and Cobra Officer!

I enjoyed this much more than the actual PulseCon. Liked the behind the scenes parts from the Hasbro offices, and the brief 10-15 minutes for each line was enough to keep me watching for brands I don't follow normally, as compared to PulseCon where I only watched the segments for Star Wars and Marvel.

Hopefully they go this style more often than not in the future.
