Per tattooinesandworm on the Infinity thread we have a pretty decent idea of what waves we're at least likely to see.

I don't see another wave that would make sense over the 11 waves we are getting this year. So I would say that yes, this is a pretty good bet for any non-current MCU films/TV figures to appear.

1) Spider-Man (Stilt Man) - 6 known figures
2) X-Men (Tri-Sentinel) - 7 known figures
3) Disney+ (wave 1) - 7 "known" figures
4) Shang Chi - 6 "known" figures
5) Marvel Villains - 7 "known" figures
6) Spider-Man (wave 2) - 7 unknown figures
7) Fantastic 4 Retro - 6 unknown figures
8 ) Iron Man - 7 "known" figures
9) Classic X - 7 unknown figures
10) Disney+ (wave 2) - 7 unknown figures
11) Eternals - 7 known figures
Infinity Premium Program
Fan Channel and Store Exclusives

This might be the earliest we have a good grasp on the roadmap of the line for the year.
How many waves were there last year?

9 Waves
- Spider-man (Demogoblin)
- Fantastic 4 (Super Skrull)
- Black Widow (Crimson Dynamo)
- Video Game Avengers (Abomination)
- X-Men AoA (Sugar Man)
- Retro Spider-Man
- Deadpool (Strong Guy)
- Venom (Venompool)
- Video Game Avengers 2 (Joe Fix-It)
FoXmen 20th
Fan Channel
Vehicles
Store Exclusives

Caveat being that 2021 Disney+ Wave 1 and 2021 Eternals were supposed to be 2020 and got bumped when their media did.

Maestro with dead hero trophies is a huge want of mine: if $50 is what it takes to get that, I am willing to pay it. Like this:

I'd pay that to get Maestro with some Fallen Hero Armor. Though I'd love to get him with a throne, too. They could easily use the Juggernaut body to get us that classic look for him:

Yes! I’d prefer that outfit, but with all the (wearable) trophies. And the throne.

If you’re a bit ambitious, have some extra cash, or multiple versions of characters, you can design your own trophy room with damaged extras of:
Cap’s shield
Thor’s hammer
Iron Man’s helmet
Magneto’s helmet
Vision’s head
Black Knight’s helm
Dr Strange’s cloak
Silver Surfer’s board
Red Skull’s skull
Juggernaut’s helm (there’s already a damaged one)
Ultron’s head

They could supply; US Agent’s mask, Spider-man’s mask, Havok’s headgear, Quasar’s cloak, Yellowjacket II ‘s helm, Dr Octopus’s artificial limbs, Wolverine’s skeleton, Nova’s helmet

It’d be up to you to supply Superman’s cape, & Wondy’s golden lasso.

I know people like to compare the number of waves between years, but I doubt there's a limit built into their license. I assume they can release as many waves as they want. So maybe 2021's wave count doesn't match 2020.

Yeah for some reason people have started comparing numbers and determine that there was set "rules" instead of Habsro repeatedly saying their lines are killing it and maybe they'd be asked to pump out more.

Between GI Joe, Legends and Mando Star Wars especially... it must be a good time to be a Hasbro Exec

My rundown of the waves and showing a growing trend in number is only to notify my wallet that this will not be the year it gains weight.

Thankfully, I don't collect MCU stuff. And I'm starting to be pickier with comic stuff. Still haven't bought Black Tom or Maverick, as an example, since I just don't care much about them as characters. So all this upcoming MCU and modern X-Men stuff is just off my radar. In other words, this year doesn't look too expensive for me ML-wise...yet.

If true, it would be nice to have that Iron man head in this pic to go on the 80th body.

I agree; it would be a nice way for Hasbro to experiment with an accessory pack since we know it's on their radar.
