There are some lines that just seem like a perfect fit for LEGO that never got made.

I loved Marvel Zombies when they first came out in the Ultimate Fantastic Four series. Sure, it was originally heralded as the first cross over between the 616 universe and the Ultimate universe (that didn’t actually happen until a vague off hand reference in She-Hulk during some crazy universe hopping).

All eight figures in this pack had been released at least once before, but instead of just doing straight repacks, all of them got new paint jobs to make them different and, in some cases, a whole new character.
The first half of wave 2 of the Super Hero Squad consisted of rounding out the Avengers, the other half of the wave consisting of figures Marvel had recently had on the big screen at the time. This pack includes two of the box office bombs: Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner! My Marvel fanboyness only goes so far – I refused to buy Elektra on DVD (but I did see it theaters).
