Retro NCS – Black Ant-man, Anti-Venom II, Ultimate War Machine, Heroes Reborn Iron Man and Holocaust

Hey, my fellow Plastic Addict. Today we jump back to look at characters I have yet to do from Fan Channels, Walgreen and Walmart exclusives. We start with the only Walgreens exclusive left, that being Black Ant. I went back and forth on whether I consider this Eric O’Grady and his LMD a different character but given that Marvel are treating them like they are the same character so will I.

Next, we look at another symbiote that being Anti-Venom II (Klyntar). Originally, I should have done this when the figure was announced but I don’t think I was doing the symbiotes and the human as they are separate characters yet. Yes I know this symbiote doesn’t have a personality like his siblings but I still doing it anyway.

Next, we head over to Walmart with two exclusive waves. The first is the original Ares wave, which contained Scarlet Spider (Ben Reilly), Guardian, Human Torch, The Vision and Crossbones, all of which have had new and / or updated figures made. Ironically, the only ones left are 2 Iron men character from 2 separate universe, which being War Machine (Ultimate) and the Iron Man (Heroes Reborn).

Lastly, we look at the Nemesis wave, where all the regular figures (Black Bolt, Nova (Rider), The Punisher, Tigra, Daredevil and Beast) have all had updates since with the BAF, Holocaust (Age Of Apocalypse), being the only character not to have an update. Funny story about this wave, it was originally going to be a mass release, but the low sales of the previous wave caused it to be held back and eventually placed into Walmart.

I won’t be doing a NCS next week due to me going to see Wakanda Forever, but I will have an Ideal Wave up for it. Unless something happens during that wave (like a new reveal), then the next ones will be Mr. Fantastic and Invisible woman from the Heroes Reborn universe, Spider-man from the Ultimate cartoon, and Ultimate Vulture.
