Hey, my fellow Plastic Addicts. Today we begin our look back at the first Dr. Strange wave, or as many people like to call it, the Malibu Stacy wave. You see this wave was full of repaints with Enchantress, Brother Voodoo and even the BAF Dormammu all having been release previously. But the worst offender was the comic Dr. Strange that was just a repaint of the previous Hulkbuster wave with a new cape. Though since three of them were previous SDCC exclusive, Hasbro were slightly forgiven.
Anyway, I have done a NCS for Dr. Strange, Dr. Strange (MCU), Iron Fist, Karl Mordo (MCU) and the baf Dormammu, so let’s talk about the only Runaway member we have so far, Nico Minoru, aka Sister Grimm. Apart from Victor Mancha (because of his connection to Poppa Ultron and brother Vision), I don’t see the rest of the Runaways being done anytime soon. Nico was mainly done as she was the most popular character and has appeared in more comics than any of the others. As such, she was placed in this wave because she was a magic user.
I have also finally added the Marvel Cinematic Universe (Earth-199999) page to the universes. This will be the only live-action universe page I will be adding. The rest will be the only live action misc. page, which I will eventually get onto. This is because there are so many characters from the MCU that have been made it had to have its own page.
I will be taking a week break next week to allow Hasbro to reveal more stuff at SDCC but when we come back, I will be starting the Thor L+T wave and Ms Marvel.
