What other characters besides Mad Thinker and Red Ghost wear a forest green jumpsuit?

From the standpoint of what the Red Skull figure could be used as a custom base for.

I love that Deathstrike look. Mine is on the way. Super stoked to get her.

She really is arguably the best of the wave. Could make the argument for a screaming head without the blowing headcap tassles given that it'd lend her more to a jumping/slashing look, but one of the few figures I got right out of the box and was generally happy with. Plus the paint apps seem to be better than most figures we've gotten.

I got Dormammu. The body is very loose, and so is the black thing that frames his face, but I like the figure a lot.

Have Lady D on preorder. Don’t want the others, but I want Xemnu most of all. Damn.

I was at a Walmart where I found what must have been at least six cases of the Xemnu wave, but all that was left was at least 4x each of Hood, Arcade, Dormammu, and like 10+ Doom. ZERO Deathstrike, Red Skull, or AIM Supreme!

My local Walmart had something like 8 of the white Doom. Everything else from the wave had sold.

I don't want to predict a pegwarmer, but this really isn't one of Doom's preferred looks. Red Skull would have been a better choice for the double pack in the case. Even winding up with two if you order a case, you can display both heads. If I ever see the set in the wild, I'll be buying Skull and Deathstrike again on sight. They are, by a mile, my favs in the assortment.

Ooooh yes please! We've gotten so many version of Beetle they might as well finish it off so we can have a proper Beetle armory. The jumpsuit body is perfect for him.

Well, Doom doesn't have a BAF piece and is packed two per case. So it makes sense he would be the peg warmer of the wave. Maybe they thought he would sell well because the previous one did?

I have to say, I buy a lot of figures out of obligation to my larger team displays. Figures that I find pretty underwhelming and usually just go in a bin until I get my permanent display set up.

Every once in a while, something that justifies the whole hobby comes around. For me, Red Skull and Dormammu are exactly that. I have them both on display on my bookshelf, and looking over there gives me pure joy.

Manderin would also work with the green jump suit.

Anyone have indications when these will ship from Pulse? It seems like they've been out for a while. I might be wrong though.

Pulse usually sticks with the anticipated dates they list per item on the website. They stick with the schedule for the most part.
