Ah, interesting!

Somehow, Klaw has become my favorite of this wave. Great headsculpt, Open hand for lots of dramatic potential. Perfect paint.

I did not expect that to happen.

Oops, the above post was supposed to go in the wave 1 thread.

BUT! Just got a shipping notice from Entertainment Earth on Wave 2! Which case will it be?!? :? :eek:

Hoping for the standard one, then I can sell Masked Draken on ebay, and use that money to get the variants I want (other Wrecking Crew guy, FF Spidey, Lady Hydra's face looks awful, so I think I can safely skip her). Or not.

Case arrived today! It's the most common one with Piledriver, unmasked Dakken, Lady Hydra, and FF Spidey.

Kinda bummed I have to find Madame Masque before I can assemble Zola, and I still have Thunderball to track down to complete the set. I'm fine without Big Time Spidey or Dark Wolverine.

Still haven't opened any of them.

Quick thoughts now that I've opened the wave:

  • Madame Hydra looks like forty miles of bad road.
  • Piledriver is HUGE and he has a wonderfully evil face. He really looks like a jerk.
  • Fantomex has a Danger Diabolique thing going on, I like it.
  • FF Spidey is great, and has those ankles Noisy has been raving about.
  • Bucky cap is fine, though I may add some shading to his face.
  • I've decided Drax is a space-juggalo (loves knives, hates shirts). He also has a hole in his back. I need to buy him a tiny Hawaiian shirt, and reduce the Juggaloness.
  • I hope Daken is from an old buck, because he's kinda awful (square biceps?). Also mine has a huge blob of glue on his head.
  • Zola has metallic legs, but the rest of his orange is solid. This bothers me.
  • Crap! I'm missing tales of Arnim Zola #1, but have 2 #4's.

Found Madame Mask, (and more importantly, Zola Face!) and Thunderball today, so I'm all set!

Also discovering what others have already: there are cases with Mask and Thunderball, that do not contain Big Time Spidey or Masked Daken. I don't want either, but that's going to be hell on those that do.

Bucky Cap and a few Drax are now warming pegs at most places around here.

I'm not as gond of wave 2 as I thought I would be. FF Spidey and Zola are the only ones I'm really happy with.

I'm still short a Thunderball. My LCS has one, but they want $35 for it. [domo] Anyone able to pick up an extra one somewhere? [magic]

Thunderball and any form of Dark Wolverine are the last two I need.

The WMs here stocked up the week I was in Minnesota and I missed out. :roll:

I'm sure they'll show up again soon...

I was hoping they would stay in stock, but I haven't seen them for two weeks now. Prices are crawling up online again. Drat, I want to finish my RedArnim SkullZola.

Same problem here, it's like Marvel Legends returned... and left!
