I'll be disappointed if StarLord takes up a spot in this wave - unless it turns out to be all MCU - I really want to get more of Thor's comic book supporting cast.

Biceps says Thor to me more than Cracked does.

Starlord, MCU or comic, in a Thor wave is just depressing.

Preach it, brother. I couldn’t agree more. There are so many great Thor characters LONG past due for figures.

Especially Star-Lord as portrayed by Chris Pratt.

Cracked is probably Natalie Portman Thor since
Spoiler! :
in the tshirt image that got leaked, Jane Foster is carrying a reassembled Mjolnir that still has glowing cracks throughout. I think the idea is Jane goes to New Asgard, where the pieces of broken Mjolnir are on display. She touches them and us deemed worthy, so the hammer reassembles itself and she becomes a Thor like in the comics. That could work continuity-wise because Thor never got a chance to even tough the hammer pieces until after the Blip and by then he was on his downward spiral and not really looking to being a hero again anyways

It’s pretty disappointing that we are about to get the 4th Thor movie and still have no comic book Executioner, Warriors 3, Balder, Kurse, Mangog, etc.

I'm honestly shocked we've gone this far without comic or MCU Warriors 3. They were unceremoniously offed in 3, but they still played a decent part in both of the previous films, and had some pretty cool costumes to boot.

Hasbro has to know that there's a demand for both comic and MCU representation of this group, right? I feel like I see them every time there's a wishlist poll.

5010993964383- Marvel Legends Thor 4 Helm 1 – MCU Thor (odinson or foster)
5010993964369- Marvel Legends Thor 4 Cracked 2 – MCU Thor (odinson or Foster)
5010993964352- Marvel Legends Thor 4 Necro 3 – MCU Gorr The God Butcher
5010993964345- Marvel Legends Thor 4 Visor 4
5010993964376- Marvel Legends Thor 4 Sabaton 5
5010993964338- Marvel Legends Thor 4 Pew Pew 6 – Probably MCU Starlord
2455828X- Marvel Legends Thor 4 Biceps 7


now usually when they do this list, if it's a mix wave, the 2 to 3 comic figures are at the bottom... i feel like "Pew Pew" is about as obviously Star Lord as Necro is Gorr.. so if true.. i'd be shocked if there's a comic figure in this wave.. when's the last time we got only 1 comic fig (Sans build-a-fig) in a wave?

"biceps" to me reads as hercules or zeus... unless it's beta ray bill?
Any insight as to the reason the codes for Biceps is different? I was thinking maybe that is the double packed with no BAF part figure, which would be MCU Thor.

Helm could then be a helmeted Valkyrie?

Thor is the only comic character ive ever considered collecting so I agree that comic fans have been shorted.

On the MCU side though I really hope they accurately represent this film. Lots of cool characters incoming and lots of cool looks as well.

Watch this wave be 7 MCU figures with a comic Volstagg BAF ... in the 2nd most iconic deco.

The MCU for all its strengths really flubbed the Warriors 3. Imagine what the later MCU more comfortable with its comedy could really have done with Volstagg.

I don’t begrudge any MCU fan getting what they want, although I am far more of a comic collector than MCU, but Thor is one of the few examples where it does disappoint a little bit harder, it feels like it’s so rare for him to get members of his comic supporting cast and villains made unless it’s in a wave supporting a film, so hearing they’re possibly including an MCU Starlord in this wave is an eye roller. And no, it has nothing to do with him being played by Chris Pratt, that whole thing is so ridiculous. But it feels like we already have to wait forever to get comic versions of the MCU Thor cast because of the imagined “brand confusion,” I’d rather they use these spots more wisely since the odds aren’t in favor of any future Thor characters getting made until Thor 5.

Comic Thor stuff is especially slighted that three of the last six “support” characters were near straight-rereleases. Malekith and Jane Thor from the SDCC set and Ares (…who I wouldn’t really count as a Thor character…) from the BAF (which was more warranted, but still a rerelease).

So outside Thunderstrike, the last new Thor characters were from the 2017 SDCC set, or were deco variants of characters we already have (Loki, Beta Ray Bill). Now we have two more Lokis coming that are also rereleases, and many people are still hoping for a second attempt at the A-Force Sif and the Hela from the Book of Vishanti SDCC set (hopefully on updated bodies). Or a Simonson style Odin/Loki.

It’s like Thor can’t escape the spiral of stuff already touched post-RoML. And this is coming from someone who really only needs Gorr, Mangog, and Surtur to round out the missing Thor villains.
