Actually, Hasbro tries to find some connection (no matter how loose) between the wave headliner and the Build-A-Figure. I was told this back at Comic-Con 2017 when I was asked to guess what the BAF would be. I asked for a hint; was it a loose or hard connection? Tony said "loose". I of course repped "Team Sauron" (Weapon X program ties and admittedly, my heart pick), but when I got serious, I stated Sasquatch. Dwight and Tony (who asked me to guess) gave one another that "wide eyed" look, and the people listening in asked me "why THAT pick"? I said "even though I can't recall them ever even being in a comic together, they're both Canadian. Doesn't get any looser than that! Of course they couldn't confirm my pick at the time.
At this point I'm just like "whatever" man. As long as it's new & it's different & it isn't some booshit like the Vulture Finish-A-Figure I'm cool. It only pushes my suspicion that the Kingpin BAF will most likely end up in this year's Knights wave. I wanna say it's the only one that makes sense, but then again what made any sense about Man-Thing in the first wave? And what makes sense about Sasquatch in the Deadpool wave, for that matter? Nothing makes sense anymore. Here's to seeing a Strong Guy BAF in the next Avengers Infinity War wave.
Team Strong Guy for life.
Sasquatch was in the first story for deadpool first ongoing series, the one after the mini series
