I thought I would pick a few up, but after seeing them in stores I was unimpressed. Guess I'm not a fan enough to overlook quality issues or silly things like Punishers giant head.

I saw most of the first wave this morning, I just cannot force myself to buy them. Iron Man looks okay, DD okay, Spidey okay, but the W:O Deadpool I got was atrocious. Looks great, but is total crap. I may still end up getting a Cap, Torch, Spidey at some point, but man, the prices stink and they are weaker than I was expecting.
The main reason I would get them is because I have always thought 3.75" was be best figure size, and now there are some iconic characters available in that size.

I just want Silver Surfer.
I hope they make Rom the spaceknight. But the figures are low quality and aren't worth the price.
I'm saving my money for the gi joe movie stuff and cobra island packs.

Since I'm a full-breed Joe collector and comic book geek at heart, I got both waves. I think there mad expensive, but I like the way there built. I also have the Superhero Showdown, almost the whole set. Those were dissappointing to say the least. I say, get the ones your interested in and wait for the rest to go on clearance.(I doubt they'll go there)I also got half of the DC universe figs. Those come with next to no accessories and are smaller then Joes. I have seven of the Wolverine figs. Those have bad leg articulation. The twisting and turning to get a guy to sit or in a dramatic pose is too tedious to enjoy.
I say hooray to Marvel for getting it semi-right. I say add more accessories, a stand and drop the price by a dollar and there goood to go. Oh, they need to make more bad guys. Bullseye and Green Goblin? Venom anyone?

They are way overpriced for what you get.
I'm glad I only want some of them.
Anything but to face ourselves as we are...

I found them at Shopko the other night, one of the more expensive stores, and couldn't believe they wanted something like $15 for each one. Then I saw them again at Walmart and for the prices you are mentioning and I still couldn't believe they wanted that much! Does anyone at these BIG companies realize we're in a recession? Amazing....
Best looking figures, IMO, that Marvel has put out...well ever! HOWever.....if they hoped to get a casual collector to buy a few of these along with the hardcore collectors...well they won't be getting my money.
