I doubt they will, I cant remember Hasbro Toy Shop ever canceling orders. Backorder, sure, but no outright cancels like Amazon and Walmart.

Thanks for the info sir! That's a relief to hear.

Im also adding weapon X to my wolverine collection, I wish the helmet head had a gworling (showing teeth) expression, I dont really like the unhelmeted head and will probably have him posed with the helmet head and would have liked it to have a little more expression

Agreed. It baffles me that after all this time they couldn't give us a decent unmasked Logan head.

Wish Beast came with a non-screamy head. And ugh, I so do not want that Wolverine, or any Wolverine. Causes me mental and physical anguish to have to by him to finish any wave.

My Professor X was cancelled by amazon and Wal-Mart screwed up my Loki/Glaive pre-order. I won't know what to do with myself if hasbro drops the ball on this! ANXIETY. AT. MAX!

I mean to ask do the sunglasses on the non-bubblegum head of Jubilee move up into her forehead, cause if they don't, I may have to swap heads with the build-a-figure Jubilee, she look better with her sunglasses in her hair anyway.

No, they are glued into the peg hole. So no movement.

Blink has got some super gappy hips.

It's the same buck they used on the Psylocke figure. It's legs are much more "shapely" than the Kate Bishop buck, but it does indeed suffer from that gap issue. From the looks of it this buck is meant to be the new "thicker" buck to replace the terribly offensive Moonstone buck with all it's curves and angles and stuffstickingout and such. Eeewh!

As far as the wave, it is by far the best X-Wave ever, with representations from several eras, different incarnations of the teams and some lesser utilized, yet awesome villains. Caliban being the only let down, but only because it was the BAF. If it had been a single card it wouldn'ta been such a hard pill to swallow, but just seems like the BAF coulda/shoulda beenso much better, and not necessarily a large one like Nimrod, Strong Guy or Warpath, butmaybe evenjust astandardsized onethat required a specific sculpt like Wolfsbane or Feral.

Either way, the weakness of the BAF is negated by the fact that I woulda purchased the entire wave anyway regardless of the BAF. Now, if we can just figure out where that damn Wendigo figure is gonna land. My guess is it's gonna end up as some Fans Club exclusive packed with the repainted/redeco versions of the same Hulk and Wolverine that they'll be releasing in the 80 years line.

The unhelmeted head looks cool, but it definitely sits funny on the body. I think it is because the peg hole is so far up under the hair. The Skullbuster was actually kind of a let down for me. The only new parts are the best and head. Would make a super easy Uncanny X-Force custom fodder figure though.
