This seems to me like a "Back to Basics" approach for LEGO. All of the hero designs immediately drew me back to the first wave, which was the only wave I did like until now. I like that these are (usually) a bit more organic and varied- although I will admit, the teaser image on the BZP homepage had me thinking Rocka was Steampunk, and I was very disappointed to see that he really wasn't. If the teal stays, I'll be quite excited to see it. None of the villains really stood out to me, to be honest.
