    Still waiting to find wave 2 but it'll be nice if these actually do come out. I have customs of MEF, Trap-Jaw, Scareglow, and Tri-Klops but I'd like to have real versions of them, as well. Guess I can stop on my MEF v2, though.

    Nice to see more minicomic and cardback versions! I'd prefer a toy version of Trap Jaw rather than Filmation, but I'm sure one won't be far behind this one. It's just a bit odd to get two variants before we've even gotten the standard version. I have Scare Glow, but I'm glad to see him finally getting another release since he was so damn tough to find the first time around. Hopefully this wave will be available as an easy pre-order on BBTS like wave three was, since I have pretty lousy luck finding these around here.

    I thought the variants were unnecessary at first, but in hand I appreciate the mini-comic versions more than I expected. Agreed on preferring a toy version of Trap Jaw rather than Filmation, I overlooked the magenta arm and accessories.

    Great to see these, I've been hoping for a non-minicomic Trapjaw! I don't mind him being Filmation, personally - probably wouldn't have noticed the difference between figure and Filmation version if it hadn't been pointed out!

    Man-e-Faces is great too, and I saw on Twitter the other day a different version of Roboto, here's the link: https://twitter.com/megabloksnews/st...03597846978560 Wonder if they're both coming, or if one is a prototype?

    Cool Roboto repaint!

    37 years to get an official mini-comic Tri-Klops, and he shows up in Mega Construx.

    I can't even.

    Given their penchant for releasing easy repaints as variants, I imagine both are on the way. I'm kinda impressed that they got the gears inside the clear torso to work so well at this tiny scale! I really like that apparently Leo-influenced darker-hued Skeletor, too!

    Right?!? At least the Origins version should be coming in 2021, too!

    That's a nice looking set of minifigures! I'm really enjoying this series.

    I believe they are just a decal on the front of the torso, like Faker has. Considering the arm and leg pins go inside the body it would be extremely hard to add anything else in there.

    My "issues" with Roboto would be silver/grey hand instead of red, and no robotic details on the upper arms.

    I love this line so much!

    It may very well be, it's hard to tell from the photo. I've taken some of these things apart and seen firsthand how little space there is, hence why I was so impressed that it looked like they had pulled it off somehow. You're right, a decal is probably more likely.

    I love that Roboto! I've been trying to piece together one from HALO pieces and was going to paint/decal the gears onto a clear torso, so glad I don't have to fool with that now!

    That was my thought. I don't mind variants and so far I've snagged most of them because they appeal to me but that's totally nonsensical to me. Make him glow a different color or something and I'll buy two.

    It should've been identical to the notoriously hard-to-find MCH Wave 5 figure, just with a glow-in-the-dark halberd. That would've made everyone happy...

    Scareglow with no glow is like Moss Man with no moss. Ugh.

    Hmm, hypothetically, I'm pretty sure that the next release of Scareglow would also be glow-in-the-dark especially since the first version was so hard to find and that he is a pretty popular character. Hypothetically of course

    I love that hypothesis! Any wild ideas about the release date as well? And while we are at it .... how about a Snake Mountain? I LOVE my Mega Construx Castle Grayskull!

    Is a MEGA Construx Slime Pit a possibility? With maybe a slime clip on parts for the figures?

    Which is why he mentioned hard plastic 'slime' clip-on pieces to mimic the sliming without gooing up our figures.

    Slime may not be my favorite thing in the toy world, but stores are continuing to offer Mega Construx products that have slime -- Aliens eggs, Breakout Beasts, and maybe the Crystal Creatures if that's still a thing? -- so, y'know, one would assume slime would be included if they were to put out a Slime Pit.
