    May I ask where and how you got yours? It's hard to find in stores, and I don't want to overpay for the whole set when all I want is Raven.
  2. Me too! There were pictures, probably preliminary images, of a few unreleased sets. I never found them myself, so if anyone has any ideas of where they are, hit me up. To answer your question, the line is almost certainly dead for now. The franchise is also shifting direction with a new animation style coming up.

    My guess is @Numbuh1Nerd used Barbara Gordon Swat Vest's arms. https://brickset.com/minifigs/sh328/barbara-gordon-swat-vest-(70908)

    That would be my guess too. Mercy Graves just got a big boost in visibility?

    That seems like a GREAT fit, if I could get my hands on one. Seems a bit hard to find. All the suggestions I tried (but only the ones I tried) fail at the eyes. This looks like a great fit.

    You didn't get the memo? Your criticism is lazy. The sets are cost-cutting.

    Anyone going to mention Wong's legs are backwards in the picture? Even I didn't notice at first, someone commented this on @Falconfan1414's Instagram post. My whole family is now worried about how to get this in the US.

    Can anyone out there put together an Ant-Man helmet with either Dr. Doom head or tDKR bane head? These suggestions come from @TheBrickBuilder14 and @SpiderJazz over on the Marvel forum for how to "fix" the inaccurate Ant-Man helmet design. The idea is that the silver/grey on the head will cover the open mouthpiece while still permitting the eyes to be seen through the transparent visor. Also looking for ideas for replacement legs for Wasp to replace the plain blue ones from the official set. @TheBrickBuilder14 suggested Ayesha's legs for instance.

    Great ideas! I can't wait to try them!

    Has anyone come up with replacement legs for Wasp with printing? Any suggestions for replacement heads that would show silver/grey in the Ant-man helmet mouth gap, but also show eyes somehow?

    As a big fan of the show, I am eager to make my own Graviton, so thanks for the great ideas! I was going to suggest the third one to @Skier1215's original post. Seeing these all together, I think the second one is my favorite. Is that a Ninjago torso?

    I don't mind the plain legs too much either. After all, this is Lego! We can swap them out! e.g. Zod legs for Black Panther. The Superhero Customization forum often has great ideas for how to modify figures just like this. Dual-molded legs are funny, and they are very rare in Marvel sets. We have had approximately 240 Marvel minifigures, and 6 of them have had dual molded legs. I will list them here: sh205: Spider-Man - Black Web Pattern, Red Boots; sh208: All New Captain America - Sam Wilson (San Diego Comic-Con 2015 Exclusive) sh212: Hulk - Dark Purple Pants with Dark Red Pattern (5003084) sh284: Doc Ock (76059) sh299: Spider-Man - Black Web Pattern, Red Torso Large Vest, Red Boots sh420: Spider-Man - Black Web Pattern, Red Torso Small Vest, Red Boots Special shoutout to the She-Hulk figure, which isn't dual molded, but which has a really good paint job that fooled me due to the excellent leg side printing. MCU Iron Spider with dual-molded legs would have been very nice. :(

    Both ... at the same time? Look no further than 76107! /s but I had a good chuckle about it. Yes, either of those options would have been better, and getting both would have been neat. I feel like Lego's Marvel minifigures peaked in 76049 Avenjet Space Mission. Among the minifig bounty in that set: the first and probably superior Thanos big-fig, extra head for Captain Marvel, leg printing on 3 figures, dual molded arms on Hyperion, and only one boring figure in Captain America with no unique parts and plain legs. I pointed out way back in 2016 that 76049 had the same number of new printed/molded arms and legs as the entire Civil War line. Come to think of it, the Civil War line also had a large number of plain legs and arms just like we got for this year's IW war sets. For some reason, TLG is trying to save money on move-based sets by keeping the prints simpler? Maybe they put the fancier arms and legs into the more children-oriented cartoon-based sets to entice the AFOLs to buy them too, but don't feel they need to in the move sets? I just checked the legs on the IW figures. The numbers are interesting. 6 sets, only 4 new leg prints (one of them used twice). There are 3 additional reused legs prints from earlier years. Three of the four new leg prints appear in one set together (Sanctum Sanctorum), arguably the most AFOL-oriented set in the series.

    I just want to point out that there is a difference between cutting costs as a company and being "lazy." I keep seeing this criticism here, that Lego has gotten "lazy" but I don't understand it. It would appear to me that Lego has tried to simplify many of their minifigure designs for this theme as a way to cut costs. Many people here aren't happy about it. I agree that plain legs without printing are a little boring. But stop calling it "lazy." It has become a lazy criticism that is too often repeated here. If you don't like something, just say so. E.g. The latest Thanos figure is disappointing. The printing on the figure is much simpler than the earlier version, and the design doesn't match his appearance in the film. Lego has reused the earlier Thanos mold, probably as a cost-cutting measure, but it only works for his armored appearance seen only briefly in the film. The plain arms however resemble his appearance after shedding most of the heavy armor, making the figure a weird mash-up. However, a bald and helmet-less Thanos would probably look very plain and unremarkable in big-fig form, giving TLG a dilemma in how to design the figure and make it look distinct. While I can't say I have a better solution, I don't think this version is the best we could have gotten, and I can't help but wonder what the figure could have looked like if it were made before TLG's recent financial woes.
