I saw these pics on another site. Apparently these figures are popping up in China.

I think overall the line looks pretty good with the bad guys actually looking better than the heroes. I'm not a big fan of the half flame on look for Johnny. I like the Ronan BAF, so I'll probably pick up the entire line. Namor looks good. Gotta say, Doom without his mask isn't that scary. He looks like he had some bad acne as a youth. The gun accesory is kind of generic.

..I may actually just try to buy a completed Ronan off eBay.

The Dr. Doom figure looks very like the earlier ML Doom figure--in fact, except for the removalable mask, it may be the exact same design. Fair enough, since this isn't an official ML line.

Reed and the WWII-like Namor look cool, but I've already got the 90s version of the Mole Man, and the Silver Surfer...well, not too much can be done with him to make him really interesting except to create him in shiny, metallic, mirror-like 'silver,' and they haven't done that here.

Sue and Johnny don't hold any appeal for me....and I've got a million really good Things, and this Thing looks rather run-of-the-mill.

So we'll see what I do once the figures are available. Ronan, however, is a must.

I'm so happy they are making a Ronan BAF. He's one of my favorite characters and I thought we would never see a Ronan figure, so this is so cool. Its also awesome that the figure looks amazing. Fortunately the rest of the figures look good too.

-Doom, Thing, and Surfer are nice and much needed updates to the original ML figures

-I love that the Mr Fantastic is using his stretching powers. Very cool idea and well executed.

-Namor doesn't look as good as the ML2 Namor, but I'm thrilled to be getting him in his green trunks costume.

-Mole Man!!!! Bout time.

-Invisible Woman finally gets a good ML figure! This has been a long time coming too.

-Human Torch looks great too. Its the best Johnny Storm ever so this line really has me jazzed. I'd buy all 8 of these even if they didn't come with a BAF.

The Ronan looks like the figure to get out of the whole set. I dislike the FF's white-collared uniforms, and the general appearance of the figures - especially Johnny and Sue (and Ben looks like he's styled on the modern cartoon Thing).
The Doom is an okay figure, but I agree about his face. Why reveal it if it just looks like Julian McMahon's high school yearbook photo?
I love Namor, but seriously, I think I'm gonna get someone to sand down and repaint DC Direct's Justice Black Adam figure, and then add some ankle wings. It'll be cooler.
