In the next couple days he said they'll reveal some figures from the Amazing Spiderman 2 ML wave and Captain America Winter Soldier Wave, very exciting news. This will give us a wide variety of characters. He said they'll be releasing a wave for Guardians of the Galaxy, Xmen Days of the future past and and Ant man.
      Also answering some news about the recent absence of the variants from previous waves:

And for the wolverine wave Rogue and phoenix force cyclops both got pulled which is why u dont see them on BBTS preorder. He plans on adding Rogue to the Xmen wave but phoenix force cyclops will never see the day since that story is long gone and cyclops has a new costume. Those were his words. Ill post what info he gave me on MU on the Mu thread.Hope this is all helpful if u guys didnt already know, shoot me some questions and ill stop by and ask him some he remembered me from previous years and is a cool guy.



      So i think its safe to say that they'll also be doing what they did with the Marvel Universe line, tie it with the movies.

      We will wait for more news on the upcoming days of these new revelations! Stay tuned!

        And here I was jealous that ML was getting that Cyclops. Why are those figures shown at in the case at Comic-Con if they are canceled?

        Yikes, what a bummer. I guess I'll want that Jubilee wave since it's the end. Hopefully the GoG and Winter Soldier series' will be good. I can't say I'm blown away by the Wolverine wave or Iron Man series.

        Yeah that what the future waves will look like...Hybrid Marvel Legends Half movie/Comic Based. At least its something and hopefully we at least got the whole wreaking out of 2 years of Legends.

        At least this is better than just rebranding everything "Avengers". We at least know the Iron Man and Wolvie ML figs are using the new bucks and share the same quality and have BAFs.

        The other thing about this that bothers me is that if Return of Marvel Legends was such a huge hit, why mess with it? It's not OUR fault as the buyers, we bought the figures. It's Hasbro and retailers fault if there have been sales issues. I can understand rebranding Marvel Universe, but the 6" line? That makes no sense to me. I've preferred movie and comic lines to be separate, now Hasbro want to merge them all. This is a headache. I can't wait to get past all of this and just get some new toys. lol.

        Ok, good news kinda haha. Oh and before i begin this is from Dwight Stall again not just rumors lol
        They are gonna reveal 2 figs from the Cap 2 ML wave and 2 from Spidey 2 ML wave. one each tomorrow and the other sat. Also if the movie is reported to be a big hit like mainly avengers they may do 2 waves otherwise probly expect just one.

        oooook bad news, i had confirmed sentry,blade,iron fist. lyja, x-force archangel were all not gonna be released as planed. Someone asked me to ask about the new rocket racoon wave specially about bulldozer and sadly he, hawkeye, phoenix (white), and AoA jean wont make the cut either on the flip side he's gonna try to fit them in with the movie related Marvel Legends each character with their respected fit in each movie universe
