Forge and Jubilee get us that much closer to 90's X-Men as well.  Plus Forge joined X-Factor in that outfit.

The 90's X-Factor team is definitely on my want list.  We kind of got them in the 5" Toy Biz days, but there were many repaints and weird exclusives.

I love Night Thrasher, Silver Sable, and Forge!  Kraven looked pretty great, too. 

If they ever make Thunderbird, they could use Forge's boots.

Scored Cyclops at Wally's tonight. I'd given up finding him, thinking I'd have to wait for the much hoped for vintage X Men wave.  Afro

Oddly enough -- he just showed up at one of the small Wally's in my area. Wasn't impressed though -- the orange-yellow accessories looked, well -- too orange.

Meh, not much for me. Beta Ray Bill is the highlight for me, but I wish he was in his classic duds. No attachment to the rest, tho Night Thrasher & Kaliban? look nice. I need Forge's boots though, great Western fodder.  Cheesy

I think I have a Beta Ray Bill from Toybiz, but it's been years since I've seen some of my older figures -- so wouldn't swear to it. Night Thrasher looks good, but this wave is probably a pass for me.

Stinks that the BAF is so cool but the wave seems like a stinker.

Bit the bullet and preordered Vintage Hawkeye and Vision today, so I expect them to hit retail immediately. I’ll get Wasp whenever they start showing up in stores.

That Kingpin B.A.F is gonna be worth a fortune thanks to that Shadow King alternate head that comes with Xavier. Ugggh.

Night Thrasher is a really nice effort. I'm glad we can still get characters like this in amongst the Spider-verse and MCU stuff.

When Hasbro said a team would be completed at NYCC, I genuinely thought it might be something like Warpath in X-Force outfit or similar. Getting Corvus Glaive and Ebony Maw to complete the Black Order sucks sour frog's ass. But then again the options were few since there's so many teams so far from being finished. It's not like they could complete The Inhumans, Alpha Flight, Soviet Super Soldiers, Serpent Society, etc, in one Con showing.

We’ll get there. They’ve mentioned wanting to complete teams as an objective. Alpha Flight looks to be on their radar. Those Forge boots are almost certainly going to be reused on Shaman.

And speaking of Hawkeye and Vision, lots of loose pics here. Definite improvements over any prior versions.

Nice.  Still need that guy. 

I'm happy to finish the MCU Black Order, though Maw needs hair.  Don't remember seeing any Silver Sable pics.  Gonna have to look a bit harder.

I really like the new classic Hawkeye and Vision figures.

Those do look good -- though it's odd they extended Vision's trunks when the could just followed the lines of the figure to give him the proper bikini cut trunks. I'm glad I passed on the most recent Hawkeye (which was pegwarming for a long time in these parts). I'm not a fan of the packaging for those vintage figures, but can't complain otherwise.

Man I love that Hawkeye costume.  It's objectively ridiculous, but I still love it.

A nice summary:

I really appreciate articles like these.  Having all of the teases come out in drips and drabs makes it hard to piece together.

It's nice to see updates to classics, rather than sporting "current" costumes.

I like the game version of Spidey from the PS4 game is getting a figure, appropriately an exclusive for Gamestop.  I'll be on the lookout for that one.
