That's awful! This wave in particular seems to be getting hit bad.  The only Rogue I've found had been swapped with the old X-Men Legends boxed set version.  

Oh wow. That stinks. That first Rogue was a bit of grail for me here in Australia... but, damn she was rough looking. 13626959_10154356234662803_4008071931052

Stopped by Walmart on a whim after work, found an Absorbing Man wave Venom, and the Walmart exclusive Winter Soldier and Falcon. Now I just need to find some decent guns for both of them.

Cap Wave 2 also has Black Panther, Scarlet Witch is in Cap Wave 3, and Spider-man is in a 3-pack available at TRU and Target. Giant-man is obviously a BAF.

There's also, apparently, a Disney Store set with Cap, Iron Man, Falcon, and War Machine, but it may be a UK exclusive.

Winter Soldier is gonna be a bitch and a half to find affordably.

Again, these are clearly bootlegs, but the sample pictures aren't too bad:

What you actually get could be paint smeared floppy messes, but I've seen official Hasbro & Toy Biz product that looked worse...

I don't have my official T'Challa yet, so I can't even compare visually:

Obviously, I'd rather have & support the real things, but if I can't find them anywhere or they're 2-3x the price even just at retail if I do... :confused:

The Dr Strange Set is cool.  Definitely want movie Strange and Mordo, and I'm really happy that Enchantress is getting a re-release.  Also stoked to have a b-a-f I don't need to complete for once.

On another note, I finally found a (not swapped) Rogue today, which completes my Juggernaut.  I also found the Walgreens Punisher.  Loving both of them.  Jim Lee headband redesigns unite!

Doctor Strange wave is quite the let-down. I grab all the exclusives and I think movie figures are dull so the only "essential" figure here is Nico Minoru. This wave is a huge missed opportunity, we could have easily gotten a classic comic Strange. Mindless Ones or Rintrah would have been welcome additions. Hopefully if the movie takes off we'll get additional Doctor Strange waves to flesh out his character library.

Grabbed all the Juggernaut wave, no Deadpool of course. Best Legends wave in recent memory. No movie stuff, re-dos that were actually needed and a focus on iconic. No wonder this wave is flying off the shelves.

Heads up, TRU has 20% off all Marvel and DC figures right now. Unfortunately it looks like I grabbed the Juggernaut wave a week too early but they did stock another case and this time I didn't miss out on Deadpool. They just got the Space Venom wave and I grabbed that too. There's some excellent custom fodder in there.

Sale's on at tru.com too; they had preorders for the Doctor Strange wave too, though they were "out" of them for Nico and Enchantress by the time I got there.  Amazon also appears to be matching the price on these, though again Enchantress and Nico are gone.

It's cool that we're getting so much stuff and so many characters but I'm wondering if it's coming at the expense of quality. Some of these figures feel like they're molded out of bubble gum, the plastic is that weak. I don't really mind softer plastic on arms and legs but they should never use soft plastic for joints and pins. That's inexcusable. Iceman can't even stand without the pressure of his upper body weight (a very slim mold mind you) buckling his knees into a "V." The female figures with smaller feet are impossible.
