Wave 80 for Marvel's 80th? Anyone? Anyone?


Recommended Posts

Thanks, Zach. That won't keep me from adding it to my collection, of course, and it's probably more attractive to those who never got a chance at it before. 

As I recall the last one had metallic paint. I'd still love to see vac-metallized parts on some of these armors.

I have a Wave 6 Iron Man 'Stealth' alongside me as I type & although I had fond memories of it TBQH the design hasn't stood the test-of-time .

No metallic paint (MrPL) rather an odd combination of blue moulded body pieces & one hand ,flesh moulded head but white moulded plastic repulser hand & slip-on helmet ( subsequently over- painted blue & red). Even his belt seems to be a different colour blue.

When all these pieces are assembled the resulting Minimate isn't quite as good as I (we ?) might remember it ,especially as the blue helmet fails to cover the flesh head completely* .         * [ edit...evidently from the pictures just like the new version ]

So, surely........ 16 years later......the new version will be perfect :pray: .

You're right ..it appeared in the Marvel v Capcom boxset & was a repaint of the Wave 1 Iron Man from that line.

A black-armoured Iron Man similar in style to the Stealth Cylon BSG TRU Minimate could've been IMHO a truly great minimate.

A straight black repaint of any Iron Man armor would be a relatively easy custom. I might have to try that.

Now I'm hungry for my Iron Man Minimates but they're... sequestered. :(

Really liking this wave all-round. I do find it slightly amusing that we get this Spider Woman just as she changes to a new costume design in her new series. I like the new costume but i cant see it sticking (No spider pun intended)

SAME. Also Mockingbird has a new costume too but whatever. It's only been 4 years.

Since September is almost over, is wave 80 possibly coming out in October?  Also since Halloween is around the corner, will we possibly see a zombie box set? Since marvel has been or is about to release monster varient covers could we see a box set like Cyclops as Frankenstein or Storm as a Vampire?

I'd love to see a set of Marvel Monsters (Frankenstein, Dracula, Man-Thing...) but with how difficult it's been to get anything out of China, I don't expect any unsolicited surprises in the specialty market.

Hey@DSTZach, Just to follow up. Any word on a release date for this set? I see some retailers listing September/October 2020.

Luke was told winter, but he doesn't know if that means Dec or Feb

I wonder if this will end up hitting in early November like the X-Factor wave did last year.  Without doing a ton of research, it seems these releases have been hitting pretty regularly in that late October, early November spot for a few years.

I'm pretty sure that pesky pandemic has thrown all that history right out the window.

Stinks to hear but makes sense. Hopefully we will still get three comic waves a year and that means two more waves are announced since 2020 “lost” waves 80 and 81.
