It seems that Amazon can't keep a secret as they have post listing for the  wave 

 

Joining them according to this listing, with absolutely no idea which version:

Gladiator, seriously? Aside from the fact that we already got one in the SDCC exclusive a few years back was there anyone out there wanting that chump before Gambit, Bishop, Beast, Quicksilver or even Mr. Sinister? What a freakin' crock. So much for that "Best wave to date" crap. In my book a "Best wave" does not include a cheap way to reuse an already produced figure. Kiss my ayass!

I am super happy about Maddrox, but just you watch. They'll pack the damn thing 1 to a case. Sabretooth is sure to be the Classic version. Magneto has gotta be the NOW! version. So by this count there are exactly 2 new characters in this wave. Thanks for making us wait an entire year between X-waves. At this rate well have an entire X-roster by 2040. Thanks for wasting our time. I've always given the creative team the benefit of the doubt but this is a joke.

That's only my 2 cents though.

Not excited about Gladiator or Multiple man, but hopefully Magneto is different from the tru one we got a couple years ago, and even if Sabretooth is a straight repack, I missed out on him as I was collecting MU 3.75 when he was out.

They're not gonna put all the A list x-men in one wave. They will be spread out at best they will put two A list figures per wave.

Glad we are finally getting the highly highly request Multiple Man. I just hope he comes with 3 heads of different expressions.

 

I do hope this Sabretooth is the classic but if it's not the hopefully Magneto''s Uncanny X-men team version

 

OH god please be a different version for Magneto. I mean we still haven't gotten the perfect version of that but for god sake given us something different and then redo that.

 

as for Gladi, I can understand people fustration but you have to know that not everyone was able to get the SDCC one. Not only that but he was the top 10 winner for many many year until he was released.

Chances are AT LEAST one or two of these will prove bogus, but until then, at the very least it gives me something to replace some of the "????" entries on my Want List.

 

Hopefully, Mags and Sabertooth make it, cause its high-time they started releasing updates of my fav Brotherhood members. Just get me an improved Toad and Blob to join them and I'm good.

If Multiple Man is to be Included in this wave, I hope to goodness that it's in his 90's X Factor costume as seen in the 90's X-Men Cartoon.

I think Hasbro knows that the fun of this product is collecting. Not having Scalpers show up and jack the prices so that some figures become impossible to find/purchase. I hope the Magneto they release is just the classic Magneto with something minor changed. And I can not wait for that Psylocke. I hope all the scalpers are pissed.

Yep, scalpers are the worst. If you buy up all the product, just to double the price on the secondary market for me to buy (which I don't), then you're an a-hole. But hey, that's America and capitalism.

I assume the Magneto will be the Marvel now one ( grey suit) . The only one in this wave I could care less about really is the wolverine as I get old of the same characters in a zillion different costumes. Much rather have a new odd character like Multiple man ect then a re-tread. With that said the tiger stripe is his best looking suit.

As one of the guys who wants to see EVERY '90s X-Character/design get the Hasbro make-over, I'm glad they're finally getting around to ol' Tiger Stripe. Guess I don't have to say which version of Mags or Sabertooth I want either, right?

Please don't let it be Marvel now Magneto.  It's been way too long since a decent classic Mags got made, and the last one was such a wasted opportunity.  Also, I'm hoping hasbro has enough sense to not make an obvious army builder like Multiple Man one per case. I remember how hard it was to get Chameleon and his three different heads a few years ago.

Yeah the TRU Magento from 2-3 years ago was great but before that Magneto was few and far between and even those were pretty bad. That X-men classics Magento with the floppy helmet and stupid laser on his shoulder is one of the worst figures ever . I would bet it is the modern Magento or Marvel Now Magneto since he hasn't worn the purple and pink outfit for a while now . I love the grey look though .

What is the difference between Magento Marvel Now and Magento ANAD as I haven't noticed much change since Marvel Now era in his look?

I think it was more like 5 years ago but that's still pretty recent. In other words WAY too soon to have another Classic Magneto! People really have to get a grip on this "redo love". Magneto's more recent outfits are the way to go at this time. As for Sabretooth, I can see Hasbro making an attempt at his classic look even though the Toybiz version, like the Beast will be hard to beat.. I would also love his more recent X-Men costume. Madrox would be kool no matter what costume he comes in, just come! AND 2X per case!!!

Ah! Well I stand corrected. But also, this magnifies my point.

"Redo Love". Lol, that's gonna be a classic. I too am very leary about straight redos of figures, but Hasbro's been pretty good thus far about character choice. Let's just face it. Anything done by Toybiz is fair game from Hasbro's standpoint so I don't think they have any problem taking a shot at Sabes or Beast. Where they get into shady waters is when they have to admit one of their own was bad enough to warrant a redo. For the most part, when redoing figures they try not to use the same looks or costumes. Take figures like Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch or Emma Frost. Most of us will agree that all of them could benefit from a redo, but luckily for Hasbro & us fans, all three of them have an alternate costume or color scheme they could use to prevent doing a "straight redo". Emma has a black costume, which I am convinced will be done, it's just a matter of time. Both SW & QS have modern costumes that can be done to distinguish them from the previous figs. In a few cases just doing the exact same figure in a better way is just unavoidable. This is the case with Klaw and Symbiote Spidey and will also be the case with Silver Surfer. The one thing I really like about those few instances is that, Symbiote Spidey aside, they usually try to release them in a format where they don't take up space in a standard wave. Klaw will be done in a 2 pack. Medusa will be done as an exclusive and Black Panther was done as an exclusive. This gives the customer the option to decide whether or not to purchase that figure without placing the necessity of having to buy it just for the BAF piece. I personally have no problem with straight redo as long as it's pretty well confirmed that the previous one needed improvement. If Hasbro wants to admit to a mistake and then try to atone for it (while still taking another 20+ bucks from me, mind you) I have little to no issue with that. They've also shown that they can fix some mistakes without actually doing what would be considered a "redo". Such was the case when they included what many believe was a replacement Jean Grey head sculpt with the Dark Phoenix figure. It's little details like that and the inclusion of a Magneto Onslaught head in the Juggernaut wave that makes me think they appreciate the consumer, but then they turn around and do something like Gladiator in the next X-Wave that burns me up and has me scratching my head like WTF?

Ya, I'm thinking Hasbro's licking their chops to show they can out do Toybiz's Classic Sabretooth, but that's gonna be a tall order, especially if they try to use the same old Hyperion buck. Probably gonna use the new Odinson buck with some glued on parts. I'm predicting a near miss, kinda like the Hobgoblin figure. As far as the trenchcoat, I think they finally got it right with the Netflix Punisher. It's a vast improvement over the Jack Skelington/Sam Jackson, Snopp Dog, sickly skinny armed trenchcoat buck they've ruined so many potentially cool figures with in the past. I'm assuming they've held out on doing Gambit so long for that same reason. I'd be happy with a NOW Magneto. The ANAD Magneto is just too far off the traditional Magneto feel for me, but I have the TRU exclusive and that will always be my go to.
