Not sure how popular my list will be since I want some rehashed figures but I’ll give it anyways.

- Gorr The God Butcher - My favorite run of Thor ever. We got the three Thors but not the main badass villain. Need this figure.

- Rhino - Both the BAF and Select are too expensive. Would like him to further build my Spider-Man rogues shelf.

- Beast - Would like to not pay $50+ for the newest figure, but he is one of my favorites so I would like to add him to my small X-Men collection.

- Classic Giant Man - Need him for my Avengers classic display.

- More modern Avengers figures, especially a better Iron Man. Looking to build out that display and would like some new releases.

- Daredevil Wave. For being one of the best Marvel runs of the 00s, the amount of figures from the Bendis/Maleev+Brubaker/Lark runs aren’t well represented. Same with Miller Daredevil.

- Punisher Wave. Need more Punisher Rogues… Ma Gnucci, The Russian, Jigsaw.

That’s a great list!

I would love to get Gorr, Classic Giant-Man, some more modern Avengers, including Extremis Armor Iron Man and the current Iron Man armor, and more Daredevil figures.

So what's the reasoning for delaying the con 2 weeks?
Because last year a bunch of people bought the premium pulse membership to have early access to exclusives and if they didn’t delay it, there might be some overlap and people wouldn’t need to renew to get this years exclusives.

Since the membership offers nothing beyond the once a year exclusives, this is the only way to keep that program going.

I suspect each year they’ll push it another 2 weeks for the same reason. Pulsecon will occur at 54 week intervals going forward.

Classic Jack of Hearts
Classic Monica Rambeau Captain Marvel
Classic Falcon (Didn't one of the Hasbro guys say he's coming?)
Classic Mr. Hyde with Under Siege head and John Byrne head from Captain America
Hinged repulsor hands with the ML 20th Iron Man figure that match the Alex Ross 80th Iron Man colors

My predictions:

Nothing that I listed above except maybe the hinged repulsor hands
The hinged repulsor blasting hands from Modular Armor Iron Man match the 80th Classic Iron Man fairly well.

Speaking of, how does one check the status of the premium membership? I don’t see on my account I’ve where I can see the renewal date, etc.

I downloaded the Pulse app. Not super keen on using *another* app instead of just the browser but willing to give it a try. Not going to use it for the exclusives this Saturday though, especially not for something that just launched a few days ago.

One of my hopes is that we see 3 more figures added to the anniversary series. I'd like to see the classic iron man using metallic yellow (not gold) and panel lining. An all new Toad sculpt, and a Hulk figure, preferably with modified torso so the butterfly joints move forward more and flat hands that can clap.

I'm also hoping that there isn't much that I want because my wallet is getting pretty empty.

This completely slipped my mind, but I hope we see the X-Men wave that was teased a month or so back on saturday. I hope its far enough along that we can see a few prototypes. Also I'm looking forward to seeing this Transformers stream tomorrow after learning that Ben Burnley is the special guest. I have no interest in the Transformers toys or the property itself, but Breaking Benjamin is one of my favorite bands so I must know more. I just hope he's not there to be the "attention grabber". But as far as I'm aware he's not an action figure collector or a Transformers fan. So hopefully his reason for being there becomes clear tomorrow.

A Romita Sr. Rhino as part of the ASM 60th Anniversary would be nice.
A CLASSIC Rhino.

Extremis Iron Man.

Please... just Extremis Iron Man. Some way. Some how. It's all I want in 2022.

And Banshee.

And classic Luke Cage.

And classic Iron Fist.

Hope:
A Cosmic wave filled with comic characters before their MCU versions debut and to fill in a few gaps of comic characters that already have an MCU counterpart but we haven't gotten them yet:
1) Iron Man - Extremis Armor
2) Adam Warlock - classic
2) Moondragon (rumored)
3) Phyla-Vel (rumored
4) Starfox (rumored)
5) Yondu
6) Nebula
7) Korath the Pursuer
BAF - Charlie-27
