Definitely like the old listings better. Of these, the only one I really want is Jack O' Lantern. Whether modern or classic, I'd be happy either way.

We JUST got a really good Carnage in the Venompool wave and I think it's too soon for another one, especially with the lack of a comic Venom that's roughly on-par with it. Still, with the right accessories, I'd probably double dip anyway so I guess they got me there.

Chameleon I'm iffy on. I have the previous one and I like it plenty enough. At the same time, the animated series look WOULD be more interesting than the plain suit of the previous figure. Assuming we're getting the animated series look, anyway.

I might pick up Kraven, if only because the Rhino wave one has a really bad handfeel and I missed out on the Target exclusive two-pack. Still, I imagine I'll end up passing on that since Kraven isn't a character I need more than one figure of.

Absolutely no interest in Uncle Ben or FF Spidey whatsoever.

Whereas I was ALL in for Shocker, Symbiote Spidey, and Hobgoblin.

Uncle Ben is just a dumb choice.

I know Zeke wore this at one point, but didn't an alt universe uncle Ben too? Or something similar?

Id be shocked if we actually get a civilian uncle Ben, tbh id have no use for civilian Ben. I doubt we ever get a teen comic Peter to pose with him, so we just hoping for a Burglar figure so he can just be displayed as a dead body on the ground? Lol

I want that version.

A civilian uncle Ben? I'd love to be a fly on the wall when these decisions are made - "let's make a character that will appeal to 1 percent of the collecting community"....

Wait a sec, didn't hasbro say a couple yrs. ago they were changing their legends packaging so there was less plastic wasted? Maybe they should look in different areas to achieve that.

The Parker-verse is just as important as the spider-verse. I would gladly take every civilian character in legends that Hasbro churned out. Even minor characters like Jill Stacy and Jessica Carradine.

Uncle Ben is the perfect example of what an exclusive should be.

But they include it in a wave because they know it won't sell otherwise.

If I'm being anything it's truthful.

I'd love Uncle Ben (and May, who would then become inevitable). They're the foundation of who Spider-Man is, his reason for being. I'm with panther10, the civilian side of Spidey is just as important as the costumed side, and I like building that part up in Legends. MJ, Jonah, Gwen...they're some of the most important, enduring characters in comics history and having a few more figures to put with them in the Spidey display seems like a win to me.

Id agree if it was a baf wave, not a retro wave with no incentive to buy

Id agree, ive been a massive spidey fan for 27 years, since i was 9, and even married a red head with the initials MJ, I absolutely agree that uncle ben is massively important to the spider-man mythos, just as much as Thomas and Martha are to batman... but as someone who collects to display... I'd get more use out of Mj's cousin Kristy over trying to figure out what I'd do with uncle ben...

I could figure outs a spot i guess if we got a teen Peter in his sweater vest , but I dont really have a use for uncle ben.. he basically only serves for photos hopped images of pete day dreaming about responsibility lol

Uncle Ben should come with an alternate head that is The Burglar. And also a handgun.
“With ‘Become Your Own Murderer’ Power Action!”

I’m actually not entirely kidding about the extra parts.
