I agree. And also nominate it for best SDCC exclusive ever.

Of course I'm being completely biased because the set included Magik... Even if it wasn't the version of her I wanted.

While I generally don't care about packaging, I do like "life size" prop like packaging and have a shelf or two with props and "life size" characters from a bunch of different properties, and the TV, remote, etc. for this set looks like it might be a nice fit for that.

The SDCC Book of Vishanti ML set is another example of a life size prop/package, and I was trying to think of any others from the ML line? (Not packaging that is in scale with legends like the Raft set or the subway set for the Defenders)
I would guess the letter/envelope from the Hellfire Club set would count for that? sort of?

SDCC Thor came in a package shaped like Mjolnir!

Had forgotten about the Hellfire Club invite, that fits...

The clear window for the Mjolnir packaging doesn't help it in terms of having a prop look, but that was fun packaging I agree.

I used to have that Book of the Vishanti, but I squashed it accidentally and it just didn’t look right. I dig packaging like that. I tend to use it as a container for other collectibles I don’t necessarily need displayed. I know I can buy it again on eBay if I wanted. That was a cool set back in the day. I liked that astral Strange, Magik, Dormammu, and Hela. Cool set!

Then all of those pretty much got some re-release in some manner.

I’m almost confident enough to wager my Galactus that Mojo sees a single release. Yes MODOK did warm shelves and e-warehouses. I got one for $38. But I think stores like $60 offerings that aren’t taking up too much shelf space.

I also think Spiral wasn’t in this set due to all the extra costs she would incur. She will be a feature in another X-Wave in 2023ish. This thing is slated for end of year release right? Could be something in early 2023.

Thwipp!

If Spiral was in this set, I might have gotten it. Hoping for a single carded Spiral at some point. She’s got such a great character design.

I feel like Spiral requires so much new tooling to be accurate/good that if she were in this set it would price too many people out. I'd hate to imagine the cost cutting methods they would go to make a Spiral happen in this set without the fear of the price being too high -- like a really bad torso overlay on that 6-arm Spiderman buck lol

Dazzler is a repaint on a better buck with just a new head, so cheaper -- and there are likely enough people that care for accurate versions to spend on this set for at least 1/2 of the "figures" here (I don't personally care to own Mojo, but I want Longshot & will get any Dazzler variation). I still think they could have kept that Wolverine paper weight & knocked $15 off though

I still love the original Hasbro Spiral.

That might have been just enough to do it for me.

I wonder if splitting this set into 2 sets would have been better. Mojo on his own (or with X-baby Wolverine) and a Dazzler/Longshot 2pk. Two sets with lower pricepoints may have been more digestible psychologically even if they added up to the same total as the all-in-one set.

I think this would have been the best solution.

I think if Spiral was in this set, the set would have cost $175-200. Spiral will be a deluxe or BAF once they update her.

Agreed - she may end up being $40-$50 since she is such a unique design and sculpt.

I mean, they could just phone Spiral in using the six-armed Spidey body

Agree about the separate packs. Or better yet, just remove the Wolverine paperweight and put Mojo as a deluxe figure with the others in a 2 pack.

$120 seems like the right price. If we accept that $30 is basically the price for Longshot or Dazzler...another $60 for Mojo is not as bad. That Wolverine is a complete throwaway.

Amazing sculpts, though. Mojo looks awesome.
