Okay, I'm finally at a real computer (see my San Diego thread in the general section).  Here are my thoughts:


Marvel Minimates move to Walgreens from TRU: I have a better shot at getting these personally since I have more Walgreens around than I ever did TRU.  The Avengers of 1,000,000 BC might be fun, but not exactly what I'm jonesing for.

Star Wars Black:

Bespin Leia and Moloch being Target exclusives is a bit of a bummer, but they should be findable.  Zuckuss becoming a Disney Store exclusive is also a bit of a bummer.  Too damn many exclusives.

Bespin Han being regular packed is good news.

Val, Rio Durant, and L3-37 coming in short order is a good idea.  No waiting for Bodhi like with Rogue One.

Imperial Patrol Trooper is sharp looking, but no bike?  He literally was only off his bike in the movie whilst falling to his death.  I'd rather have him with his bike and Enfys Nest on her own, but to each their own.

General Veers as a Walgreens Exclusive is fun, love the snap-on armor.

Ezra and Chopper down leaves just Zeb.  Best for last I guess.  Chopper as a single fig is no bueno, but about what I expect at this point.  He looks great though!

Marvel Legends:

$100 for a re-release Sentinel is too much, even with that improved DoFP Logan.

Ant-Man, Wasp, Hawkeye, and Vision all seem like solid upgrades of classic figs in the tribute wave, a Scarlet Spider and Black Panther that were just released seems silly.

The rushed Black Panther Wave 2 is a pass since it's all movie figs.  If they had some more variety I would seriously think about it, but two more Black Panthers with minimal changes and Papa Panther is too much filler for me.

Modern Symbiote Spidey seems a necessary evil, but new Red Goblin and Silver Sable are welcome.  I like the modern Black Cat costume and take on the character so she's welcome as well.  Kingpin looks bad ass enough that the other two boxes could just have his build-a-jowls and I'd get them.

Skullbuster looks awesome, but makes me want more Reavers.  Blink looks great and is overdue with their 90's focus.  An updated Gambit is welcome.

Prof. X in his hoverchair is also overdue and damn if I don't want Deadpool and buddies on their scooter.  Curse you Hasbro for making me want more DP.

Magick being more available is awesome.  She's been a part of multiple teams in that uniform now.

AIM Troopers!  Love them.  I'd rather have two beekeepers, but beggars and choosers.

Re-release Archangel seems weird, but as others have said, he was hard to find.

Modern Hercules look spectacular and I welcome sober-Herc.

I love having a Genis-Vell, but I would have much preferred his easier to make long standing costume.

DC Multiverse:

Losing Simon Baz from the Armored Lex wave blows.

Batman Beyond is an upgrade, especially if he gets wings as rumored.  KC Superman is okay, but in my head canon only because of his time in the JSA.  Kid Flash finding a home is great.  GL Kyle Rayner gives me enough wood to penetrate Alan Scott's constructs.

Black Canary looks great.  GL John Stewart is good for building a new-buck Justice League.  Wally Flash is overdue.  Starfire and Nightwing are great team builders.  Ninja Batman and Kabuki Joker make me sad, but they do look amazing.

Hawkgirl looks great for the Justice League.  Katana's outfit is kind of bland, but is nice for what it is.  Flashpoint Aquaman seems unnecessary.

Hopefully Baz, Powered-up Ray, and Beast Boy find ways to be released.

With Mattel laying off 2200 employees I wonder if these will get enough attention to be released.

Transformers: War for Cybertron: Siege

My only complaint here is that the cybertronian modes look too earth-like.  By which I mean too many wheels.  They shoulda been hover cars.  Aside from that, the introduction of micromasters plus classic G1 characters in cybertronian alt modes is allllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll win.
