Thor

Based on Thor’s final look in the Infinity War movie, the head comes with a new scar on his face.

Naturally, the set comes with Thor’s new hammer, the Stormbreaker.

The set also comes with lighting effects parts for Stormbreaker.

Think this is my favorite version of MCU Thor by far.

Black Widow

This time around Black Widow is now blonde. Although it isn’t really explained in the movie, the supposed reason behind it is that she, along with Cap’s Avengers, are on the run, so she made the change to look less conspicuous? It’s supposedly a nod to the other Black Widow in the comics, Yelena Belova.

The new “face printing” technology is incredible. This has been around since Thor Ragnarok and what it means is that unlike before, where Hasbro was using the “stamping system” to print paint on the heads, this new technology now uses a printer-like inkjet system to produce finer details for the face. It’s amazing and it shows.

Although not really shown in the movie, Natasha still sports her wrist-mounted stun gauntlets.

I had to look up what these were, turns out they’re actually tasers. Interesting.

The tasers can be mounted on her holsters.

Last but not least, Natasha comes with new stun batons in the movie as part of her arsenal.

The batons can be combined to form a staff.

Hands down, the best figure in the wave, mostly due to its likeness of actress Scarlett Johansson. Very impressively done, Hasbro.

Ant-Man (Scott Lang)

Finally, we get a proper MCU Ant-man figure, the one from Ultron wave was terrible.

From the older MCU Ultron wave.

The BAF version from the Civil War wave.

I can’t put my finger on it, but there’s something off about the sculpt. It doesn’t quite capture Paul Rudd’s likeness 100%. Some angles are good, some are kinda wrong. Too much cheek bone perhaps? It’s not bad, but not quite accurate enough, especially after seeing how they did Black Widow for this wave.

Thankfully, this time around, the Ant-man costume looks spot on!

I do wish they he came with some ants or something, guess I should up some rubber toy ants at the toy store next time for this guy.

Wasp (Hope van Dyne)

First teased at the end of the first Ant-man movie, we finally get the MCU Wasp.

She comes with 2 backpacks, one wingless and one with wings.

Like Ant-man, she also comes with an alternate “unmasked” head.

It’s not too shabby but there’s something missing from Evangeline Lilly’s likeness here.

The wings have some articulation and can move up and down.

It’s really amazing how the sculptors were able to reproduce this level of detail with their figures now.

Ant-man and the Wasp

Black Knight

Dane Whitman is the Black Knight, a descendant of Sir Percy of Scandia, a member of the court of King Arthur.

He comes with his primary weapon, the Ebony Blade. The blade is enchanted by Merlin and can cut through most objects (but not Adamantium supposedly) and even mystical barriers. The blade is also bonded to its wielder and cannot be used to pierce his skin.

The Ebony Blade can be sheathed in his belt loop.

From what I understand, this look is based on his appearance in the 1979-1980 Marvel UK run in the Incredible Hulk Weekly black and white comic strip. This look is also used in the Avenger Alliance game.

From the old Hasbro ML Brood Queen wave, Hasbro sculpting has come a looooong way.

Also included is the head based on the original 1955 Black Knight (Sir Percy of Scandia) comics created by Stan Lee. The look isn’t quite perfect, as Sir Percy sported a red cape and yellow color for his coat of arms, but I suppose it will do.

Lastly, it comes with the proper look for Dane Whitman from the comics for the majority of his appearances as an Avenger.

It’s a shame Hasbro didn’t include the Shield of Night accessory from the older Black Knight figure here. But this look is perfect for the Black Knight. I was hoping they would include the head of his evil uncle, Nathan Garette so we could add another character to the Masters of Evil roster but, alas.

Malekith the Accursed

First released in the SDCC 2017 boxset with Bor and Ulik and Jane Foster Thor, Malekith is rereleased for this wave for some reason. The Thor villain is the ruler of the dark elves of Svartalfheim and possess superhuman strength, speed, intelligence and can cast magic.

I still prefer the 2017 SDCC version of this Dark Elf as it looks better visually. I guess it’s good that folks have an option to get SDCC characters at retail, but sometimes it’s becoming annoying when you have to “double dip” on the same figure, which Hasbro seems to be doing more and more often as of late. Sigh…

As with the SDCC, he comes with his sword.

Yeah, sorry, I just can’t unsee Batman’s Two-face character here.

Cull Obsidian

The big guy in Thanos’ group. Cull Obsidian is ridiculously tall.

He’s taller than Apocalypse!

He can only hold his weapon with his left hand, like so.

It’s a shame we never got to see this guy go head-to-head with the Hulk.

The full wave
