I got real excited when they announced the new 1:18 scale figures because they fit in so well with many other lines I collect. And I thought it was also great since they would redo all the ML that I missed and are now fetching astounding prices on ebay. Plus 4-inch figures are cheaper.
BUT character selection so far has been terrible (in my opinion), I only collect 1 or 2 per wave. Plus I haven't seen any wave around here since wave 4 back in '09. when you have 300+ Star Wars and 100+ GI Joes, then a shelf for 7 MU seems like a waste of a shelf. I regret starting to collect these. Plus the fact that we lost the B-A-Fs, it was a great incentive.
