I'm loving the 6'' Nova, and tons of great Marvel Universe stuff finally. I'm also buying SO much Guardians stuff.

Does anybody else think Rocket Raccoon's yellow sleeveless shirt with horizontal black around his middle is a deliberate reference to Wolverine?

I *LOVE* the Guardians; but I really want the comic book versions over the movie ones. We have a great ML Rocket Raccoon and Drax; hopefully that comic book prototype of Starlord from the last SDCC will get made. I can't believe that they have yet to do any version of Gamora after all these years (and Pip the Troll too...sigh).

But I am ALL OVER the Space Iron Man and Nova; those are MUST haves!

I got my shipment of the first set of Avengers Infinite figures today from BBTS. I'm happy with the wave overall.



- Hulk: Unfamiliar with this version of him. I haven't kept up with the comics. But his armor kinda looks cool. He'd look good hanging out with the Guardians of the Galaxy. He's got some very nice articulation for a bigger figure in the line. The bracers are annoying, though. I appreciate they wanted to make them removable, but the plastic is so soft they won't stay on. Love the face sculpt on him, though.





- Hyperion: Kind of one of those plain-jane characters. But he looks good overall. The paint apps on these all around are very nice. But he looks HUGE! Like he's from a different line almost. Also, his cape is not secured well and falls off at the drop of a hat. I'll likely glue it.




- Wasp: She's my main reason for getting this wave. I've always liked that outfit, and I think she turned out great. She has a really nice face sculpt with a lot of personality, and the metallic paint and the wings are nicely done.





- Grim Reaper: A simple design, but still pretty bad-ass. I like his crumpled cape and his face sculpt. I wish his scythe was harder plastic, but it's not bad out of the package. I can confirm (and you can see the pic) that he DOES have a swivel at the scythe. The scythe is such soft plastic it might not feel like it at first, but it does turn.

They do look great, and great pics!

Jon, can you post a pic of the mini-Wasp that the Wasp was supposed to be packed with?

I really do like the Heroic Age armor. I wish they'd kept it longer in the comics.

Thanks! Here's the pic. It's a (slightly gloopier) repaint of the Wasp we got earlier in MU.

It's really nice! I added functional gun holsters to my figure's legs and LOVE the way it came out:





Big thanks to Cruel Angel for uploading the photo

Can anyone with the Hot Toys Iron Man post a picture of the bottom of his boots? A friend is needing a picture of Iron Man's soles for an art piece and can't find anything.

Sure, can probably get that posted later on today.

For the amount they cost, they really should've painted his boot thruster.

I'm glad the new Captain Marvel comes with an unmasked alt head. The classic Ms. Marvel exclusive to the box set (GRR!) looks even better.
I'd prefer Odin if he was was in the costume EM did their figurine in.
Scarlet Witch is a big improvement over the last one even if she's not wearing the full leotard.
I'm disappointed there's no villains in this wave unless you count Sentry. I'd love a Whirlwind & Titania on the red She-Hulk body with extra spikes.

I just ordered him and Hawkeye from Amazon; they only had one Scarlet With left and $38 was too rich for my blood....
