    So Jubilee IS the BaF? Her tag is the only one that mentions it. If so, I much prefer getting a full-sized character than the little guys.

    love the 3.75" figures Im glad to see them back and cant wait to add them to my collection. Its great to see the return of proper articulation since the failure of the iron man 3 line. Still sad about them.....

    First thing I said when I saw the first figure on the left was ned stark from Game of Thrones, then I am like who are all the other ones?

    Honestly I think the Thor figures are 3.75 and fully articulated because they're retooled figures from the 1st line(though some are new). That new Iron Man looks cool.

    I wish there were a Superior Spidey. Weird eyes and all.
    That Venom is somewhat tempting though.

    Very disappointed to hear that the Marvel Universe line is ending and being renamed simply The Avengers.

    If they truly plan on having non-Avengers characters in the line, that's fine I guess but it's a very strange move to make.

    Those avengers toys are from the new avengers tv show, its not replacing Marvel Universe I have no idea where you heard that it was.

    That Dark Elf...looks amazing...

    The Thor movie line I totally loved, I'm so excited for this movie to hit so I can pick up some more Asguardian goodness!

    I'm not talking about the Avengers toys shown here.

    In 2014, Hasbro is renaming Marvel Universe to The Avengers.

    Jubilee being a BAF Sucks, I wasnt thinking of getting all the "thunderbolts wave" just moonstone (mostly for the new female mold) and agent venom, now I either have to buy a jubilee online loose or get the whole wave and re-sell the rest of the figures I dont want opened.

    Bartoc/Blizzard appear to be using the bucky mold (just different heads) and Tigershark/Radioactive Man the Hyperion/Sentry mold (TS is pretty much Wolverine Legends Sabretooth and RM Hyperion with a loincloth and new headsculpts) I wonder if these will be running changes, maybe Moonstone will also have a running change to her Ms. Marvel Costume since they could just repaint her and probably add the scarf shown on the Wolverine Legends Rogue.

    I Read in marvelousnews that hasbro said they are having problems with the variants from the first 3 waves due to distribution issues and now they are looking for ways to get them out to shelves with a posibility that they get released as an exclusive wave like a TRU exclusive or something like that, I dont know if this also aplies to the Hit Monkey Variants or which ones they were talking about, because as far as I know the variants that havent been released are the Epic Heroes and Hit Monkey Waves

    Those Thors look amazing, I'm definitely in for some Dark Elves and the Thor with the badass cloak.

  13. nomad1632's Avatar nomad1632 says

    Hasbro why are you getting rid of articulation!!!! your destroying your figures and killing the sculpt....

    so cheap looking its pathetic!

  14. kostej's Avatar kostej says

    Hm, it seems we are getting 3,75 {albeit Assemblers line) Iron Man Igor Armor.

  15. Andy Carruthers's Avatar Andy Carruthers says

    As much as they are limited I actually like the Iron Man 3 assemblers line, can't wait to pick up the rest.

    Same toys, same articulation - just a different name. Besides, nearly everyone in the MU has been an Avenger at some point or another.

    Not really. It's a standard practice in the industry as way to convince retailers to continue carrying a line (or carry it again if they stopped). Recent examples from Hasbro include Transformers, G.I.Joe. and Iron Man 2. Mattel recently did it with TDKR.

    And apparently Avengers is a bigger buzz word these days than Marvel Universe, so I would assume Hasbro is banking on that increased name recognition to get retailers interested in the line again.

    And which figures would that be? As far as I can tell, the collector-oriented figures still have plenty of articulation, while the kid-aimed line has less. Seems to be following the same line of thought Hasbro mentioned at Botcon regarding Transformers. Well, at least to me.

    It looks like Rescue is using the Extremis legs...which were terrible for articulation

    What that sucks, I prefer MU then Avengers ugh...I might just stop collecting if they really do go that route with the Marvel figures then...And yup looks like they're doing a variant with Cloak/Dagger/A-Bomb/Abonination. Yeesh.

  19. Andy Carruthers's Avatar Andy Carruthers says

    Abomination in a face off against the Hulk in 3.75 scale. YEY

    They've done a similar thing in the Marvel Avengers Alliance game where it encompasses all the MU, not just Avengers. I'm also not a fan of this approach, btw.
