WOO HOO, the ARES ML wave is out in the US

Post by FIELDY on Sun Oct 05, 2008 4:38 am

The Walmart Exclusive ARES wave is out in the states and the figs do not disappoint according to Stryker,

He picked me up a set and said they are released in a greater number than the Giant Man wave to combat against the EBAY scalpers according to the manager at Walmart in Texas.

Cant wait to get these in the next few weeks, man they are pumping out the ML waves now in the lead up to christma, next to come is the army builder 2 packs.

Finally some ML excitement..... Very Happy

Ares is wave 4 with the BAF Despero. The Walmart wave is 5 with the Metallo BAF.

Both started hitting recently from what I've heard.

Sorry boys and girls, Im happy cos I just got pics and the email this morning, and am rapt, the Iron Man is fresh as hell and will be a welcome addition, the War Machine looks to be a repaint of the IM and the Scarlet Spidey is a different take on the character, Vision looks very similar to the earlier though.

Spleeny, yeah the DCUC is out in the states and already have that on the way too -

Maybe the sign of ML's coming down at TRU and the new 2 packs out mean maybe they got the idea and will go back to previous distribution. heres hoping for everyone.

My box will be here in two weeks with these guys and my red hulk and DCUC's should be here this week... Cant wait to see Artemis in the flesh.

Finally something happens on a sunday for me, LOL

Only interested in Guardian from this set, if anyone doesn't want theirs, let me know...

Why do another run of the same Vision? Surely they could have done a different version??

Yeah I thought the same thing about vision - theres not much difference in the sculpt, and they are re-releasing Kang again which is good for those that missed out before, that should bring the scalper prices down. LOL

I am so hanging now for the series 2 twin packs to hit or get released some time soon, I need bad guys to fight my shield agents, LOL

Received this first thing this morning, they all looked good from the quick peep in the box, Guardian has more blue than white which is unexpected. The solar flare Human Torch variant is easily my favourite Torch yet. Will try to get some pics done later today/tomorrow. Meanwhile the 2" Wasp took a dive overnight and her head came off and has mysteriously vanished.

Some thoughts
Ares: The figure itself is great, sculpt and paint job wise. He's the smallest BAF yet though, barely bigger than Crossbones. For an eight figure wave, Hasbro could have packed two of his size BAFs and there's no shortage of similar size figures they could have chosen from.

Kang: repaint of the TB FF series which I already have. Will pick the better paint job of the two and unload the other.

Crossbones: Looks great. One of my two favourite of the series.

1st Appearance Vision: Good, but not as good as the TB release which had a better paintwork and more articulation.

Nova Human Torch: Great, the other favourite. The first Torch figure I've really been impressed with. Pity Hasbro don't bother with the peg holes in the back for the stands, this one would look good hovering above the rest of the FF. Hope the similar transparent looking AoA Sunfire is as good.

Ultimate War Machine: A repaint of the Ult IM. The chest and abdo could have some stronger paintwork.

Guardian: The white is more often a pale blue, don't know if this is how they all are or if I could have just got an overdone one. Looks good, Alpha Flight very very slowly getting done. Would love to see a Northstar/Aurora twin pack, both of which could be retools which Hasbro seems to love doing...

Ben Reilly Spider-Man: OK. Some figures need a lot of POA though and Hasbro keep failing on that.

Heroes Reborn Iron Man: Like Danger, one of those figures that looks good in the comic (although maybe even that's arguable) but looks kind of silly as a figure. Iron Man is one of those characters, along with Wolverine, Spidey and Hulk which TB and Hasbro seem to love doing, that they're now having to mine the Reborniverse for material.
