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

So we are looking at 2 waves a year at specialty accounting for a 6 month +/- window between solicitation and release.

What happened to the boxsets that used to help fill in the gaps between releases?  I thought retailers preferred those because they don't have to order by the case?  The last comic themed boxset we got was the X-Men Brotherhood set in 2017.

We still need those Warriors Three and Wrecking Crew boxsets.

I don't think that's anything new. It might be a shorter window than six months, I'd have to check the last few waves. I think recent box set sales have made us doubt their sellable nature. 

But we also have Walgreens putting out 3-4 Animated and movie waves per year, and many of those are comic-compatible.

Still pretty much prefer the official comics than comic-compatible! Box sets are good to get not-so popular characters out there, kinda like the BAF characters we get now, those that needs to be made vs popularity

Maybe we can start playing hangman for the next week. Players ask for a letter and at the end of the day whichever letter is requested most gets revealed, if it's there. One letter a day until Toy Fair.

Go.

Deathlok is arguably the most important Marvel character yet to be made, and Constrictor is one of my personal all-time favorites. Super excited to get both. This wave looks like a big win so far. 

I will humbly disagree on the most important character yet to be made but do agree this wave seems great so far.

I'm a fossil when it comes to social media stuff I avoid it like the plague. So They only pic I can see is the Stealth IM and Ghost one, both look real nice and the IM is a real shout-back to the early waves of Minimates. So much so for me I thought it was the wave 6 one on first sight and those images where just place holders for later reveals.
