After saying "nuh-uh" out loud several times, it is needless to say that my level of excitement and satisfaction is immeasurable.

Actually, Midtown Comics took the picture. 😉

Eh I’m still pissed at them so credit stays with you. 😂

I actually did a little dance.

these mates can’t get here soon enough

I wish they were here NOW!!! It’s the 40th anniversary so it’s all year long. Really wish Green Jean was a Dark Phoenix update though.

It's true that there should be a new Dark Phoenix, but finally getting a (Dark) Phoenix Saga wave is too exciting for me too really mind. This wave looks as well done as 80, and the character choices are much more appealing to me.

I hope the last pack has a new White Queen in it, even though that doesn't fit the cosmic theme of the other two.

It may not “fit” the cosmic wave but it still is Emma’s 40th birthday...

Man, good for dst straight knocking it out of late with these waves.  Can't wait to see all of them.

Who do we think are in that last two pack?  Wolverine as Fang? Ch'od? Hepzibah? Smasher? Mad Emperor D'Ken? There are so many options!

 That’s what I want!

I'm so exited for gladiator! He's been on my top for a while, unfortunately I don't care much for the rest of the shi'ar characters. Wish it was dark phoenix also, she is in desperate need of a redo

Dream Wave!!!!!!

So I figure Wolverine Fang and D'Ken as the last two? Deathbird and maybe Korvus, or Ch'od? I'm hoping for at least a single Shiar hairpiece to make customs with since this is another multiple set purchase for me. I'd love Raza, and Hepzibah as well...

I must be the only one who still covets the Dark Phoenix figure. The shading on her is exquisite.

I’d take all of them! This is my favorite period of x-men history.
 

I think Hep would be fairly easy. Just repaint squirrel girl’s tail.

Ehhhh it's super dated. They could shade it the same way these days but make it look wayyyyy better

I guess I just disagree. I'd definitely welcome a new one with open arms, but I still think the one we've got stands out.

Another surprise wave, can't believe we are finally getting Corsair, Lilandra, and Gladiator.  

I wouldn't be surprised if the last pack is Dark Phoenix and Fang Wolverine, but would love to see more of the StarJammers.  Maybe 81 is still a BAF wave with Hepzibah, Raza, and BAF Ch'od with Cr'reee?

Maybe 82 will be a complimentary Dark Phoenix themed wave?

We definitely need more 70's and 80's X-Men villains.  Black Tom with Juggernaut redo, Hellfire Club, Wendigo, a proper Sauron, Reavers, Callisto, Arcade....

That'd be a winner. 

At least give me Ch'od. I can feasibly live without the other two, but just having Corsair on his lonesome is too depressing. 

I'm also very hopeful that there's an alternative Shi'ar hairpiece for Lilandra. I far prefer her fishnet look to her armored-up appearance and would like to get as close to that as I can.

The hairpiece is visible in the picture.

I asked Midtown to photograph the rest but I haven't had an answer until now. Maybe @DSTZach can help us.

EDIT: he already did it. Thanks, Zach!

Not 100% sure I got the two-packs right, but the last two are Cyclops with leather jacket and Dark Phoenix with a bunch of flamey pieces. There should be more pics today, we didn't allow press yesterday. Midtown Comics came through as a retailer.

Also no BAF, that is done going forward, unfortunately. Fun while it lasted.

So, no BAF here too, unfortunately.
