Other figures in the third wave include:

  • Captain America from Marvel Comics
  • Thor from Marvel Comics
  • Gipsy Danger from Pacific Rim
  • 1966 Adam West Batman
  • Superman from DC Comics

The third wave is supposed to be coming this month, in July. Expect widespread availability starting in August.

Past Scalers retailed for around $10, although no price point has been announced for the third wave yet. Some were available as part of sets, although Godzilla and the others will retail separately.
