  • Thor, Rocket Raccoon, and Groot (Toys R Us, available 6/1) – Rocket is a re-issue of the GotG2 figure, while Thor and teenaged Groot look like new sculpts. And while the single-carded Thor revealed yesterday has both eyes intact, this Thor sports an eye patch.
  • Winter Soldier and Falcon (Target, available 6/1) – Bucky looks like he re-uses some parts from the Walmart exclusive Civil War figure, while using Hasbro’s face printing tech for an improved face deco. Falcon looks like a repaint of the Walmart figure.
