Looks to me like Hemsworth focused more this time on building bulk by consuming mass calories. There are a lot of before and after pictures of bodybuilders going from normal to insane, but my favorite recent one is Hafthor Bjornsson who played The Mountain for the second half of Game of Thrones (the original Mountain had to quit due to a schedule conflict when he played an orc in the Hobbit movies). He was a pro basketball player until age 20 as shown below, and he was 6' 8" and 230 pounds when he had to retire due to a bad ankle injury. He bulked up to 400 over the next few years after switching to competitive bodybuilding.

Still no idea on the figures for this, but I'm reeeeeeeeally hoping for a more traditional comic-y helmet in the movie that warrants being included on a figure.

I also know the Endgame figure's height is more accurate, but I actually liked having the Thor figures be more massive. I assume Love & Thunder's Thor figure(s) will follow the Endgame figure's height though.

If this is a split wave with MCU and comic figures, I'd bet you all a shot of your favorite adult beverage that the fan poll Sif will be included.

I'd much rather see her get a fan channel release (ala She-Hulk or Firestar); I'd rather get a new character.

Wouldn't mind seeing a classic armored Odin as a BaF like the version toybiz had planned.

My gut feeling is this will have a movie BAF. Depending on how large he is, I could even see Gorr as a BAF.

That’s what I’m hoping for. We’re months away from these figures being revealed, but the inevitable Jane Foster is one of my most anticipated.

Let's see if they can top that perfect Valkyrie from the Endgame wave.

I'm excited for all those possibilities. I'm also hoping for characters I haven't heard any rumors about, like Beta Ray Bill and Hercules to show up.

I wonder how close to the comics Gorr will be and if we'll ever get a comic Gorr.

Probably at some point, but not with this movie. Gorr will be movie based in this line.

I am hoping for an all MCU wave with this movie. I think this may offer the most toyetic characters of the MCU movies next year, and lately we have gotten 1 movie in a year an all MCU wave. I hope of the 4 next year, this is the one that gets that treatment

I'm pretty sure this will be a split comic/mcu wave. This is the 4th Thor movie and the 6" line has never had a dedicated Thor wave. Which makes me believe they don't have faith an all movie wave would sell well enough.

Be a good opportunity for them to maybe do a foom style release, with a giant BaF split amongst 2 waves.
