I just started seeing these today at Walgreens. Between the stores I went to I saw everyone except Beast and Jubilee (who are the only two I immediately want)

I’d like them all, but I’m broke right now. Trying to sell some eBay stuff so I can just buy a case online.

I guess I didnít make the Jim Lee connection with this wave.  Iíd long since stopped buying X-Men at the point where Lee took over.  The Beast just gave me an Avengers flashback.

That looks like the perfect classic Thor, provided there's no ridiculously loose hip joints.

Jim Lee's X-Men is where I started reading, so these hit a sweet spot for me.  And Forge is awesome.  The power to invent anything?  Beyond awesome.

Just not visually exciting...

The rest of Avengers wave 2 is underwhelming.

War Machine (not movie accurate colors)
Rescue
Shuri
Rock Python
Beta Ray Bill
Union Jack (now on Bucky body instead of the original Sunfire)
Loki
BAF MCU Smart Hulk, but not in his quantum suit

Ordered Loki on Pulse, I’ll get Jack and Python when they’re marked down.

Got my case of Caliban yesterday. Last time I bought a whole set like this was Juggernaut.

Beast- amazing. Articulation is all functional and fantastic. I respect the pupiless look, but I definitely would've preferred pupils.

Gambit- surprised as how much I like him. I'm not crazy over Gambit like some folks, but this is a huge upgrade over the old ToyBiz figure. He's almost entirely new sculpt. Jacket is super pliable.

Jubilee- how did it take 18 years to finally get a 90's Jubilee? In any event, it was worth the wait. She's perfect.

Forge- definite upgrade from the old Hasbro figure. He's fine, the harness restricts him a bit. I think after swapping on some more leg bands and a new bandolier, he'll be great.

Skullbuster- I don't know much about him, but he's cool. I've seen some folks already making some really great Reese fix ups with that extra head.

Blink- I know she was in high demand, but I barely know anything about her. Her accessories are real cool and her articulation is real smooth.

Weapon X- I'm a sucker for Wolverine. I like this guy quite a bit. His claws a much sturdier than any other recent Wolverine I have and I actually really like his alternate head.

Caliban- a really cool looking, imposing bad guy. I don't know much about him from his Horseman days, but I did have this guy's old 5" TB figure as a kid, so it's a kick to get him all upgraded as an adult.

Altoona Wal-Mart had all of the new X-wave with exception of Weapon X and Beast. Of the wave, Beast is the only one that interests me.

is the 80 hulk/wolves a general release or exclusive somewhere? I just saw it for pre-order and heard the latter.

Itís a ďfan channelĒ exclusive. Meaning itís basically everywhere except Target and Walmart. All online stores, GameStop, and possibly Best Buy.

I got a pre order in over at Hasbro Pulse. There was loose Hulks available on Dorkside, but it was still $50 after shipping. For $10 more I get Wolverine (who Iíll probably sell) and Iíll get them earlier.
