Don't mistake this for another MCU vs. Comic argument but I've got severe case of MCU IM, Cap & Starlord overload. There are sooooo many comic versions of each of them that they could easily slip a comic version of any of them in any of the waves for the next movie & I swear, no one will mind. How bout this Hasbro? Say for the Avengers waves for the next movie you pair an MCU IM with a Comic post Secret Empire Cap or maybe an MCU Cap with one of the many different comic IM armors. How bout a comic Starlord, or Winter Soldier, or Falcon, or maybe battle suit Gamora? You can still get a lot of recognizable characters in circulation without the manotany of the past waves. One the flip side there are plenty of MCU characters that could use an update as well. Whatever, just a suggestion. It's just that this current formula is getting pretty stale, quick. But what so I know? I've only supported this line and watch it falter and succeed several times.

Wow, I was totally wrong about this one. The press image of the figure was horrible and taken at an awkward angle. Made it look funny, to me at least. The in package pics are great. The figure looks much better from the straight forward view. The second head is almost dead on. We need this figure ASAP.

We obviously haven't been shopping at the same etailers

Lol, we'll if you catch em really early at Dorkside they're much cheaper, but in the case that I don't I have a few dependable ebay vendors that will usually let me haggle em down to retail. So I do kinda cheat a little.

I would've preferred Giant Size Storm, since she could double as modern Storm with an alt-head

Yeah me too or the Jim Lee version or one with just long hair. I hate that freaking mohawk. I bought the Toys R Us exclusive version around Christmas just because I felt that version would go better with my other X-Men then the dated 80's one with her having somewhat of a cape. I felt for sure in this wave that we were either going to get the Giant Size one or the Jim Lee one because we were due for a Storm figure and they went this route.
Don't get me wrong I would like to have an 80's styled team of the X-Men with Rogue in her classic green outfit (Outback version I think don't have time to look it up right now), Dazzler in her blue outfit with the brown jacket (thats the Dazzler version I prefer over the one we got), Psylocke in that cape before she switched bodies, Rachel Grey in the Red outfit, Shadowcat in her blue outfit and Longshot. But I would have preferred Jim Lee Storm first.

I agree, I really have zero use for this version of Storm. It was never that iconic or that appealing. She had no powers and she was somewhat of an annoying b!+ch during that time period. Her powers did remanifest in that outfit but she did immediately return to her more traditional type outfit, like literally by the next issue. I also agree with the blue leotard Dazzler. I was happy to have her at all, but the disco outfit left me scratching my head. Her most prominent run with the team was definitely in the blue outfit. A green bustier Rogue would be awesome, but I'd much prefer a modern Uncanny Avengers version first.

The worst part is that we're only getting one X-Wave per year which terribly limits the possibility of getting the versions of these characters we really want. Add to that the complete illogical inclusion of characters like Gladiator along with this irelevant version of Storm and who knows how long they'll have us on the hook. Also on the horizon is the inevitability that the X-franchise will soon fall victim to the half MCU/half comic wave formula we see currently with the Avengers waves. Now, most of us consider the Deadpool waves as auxiliary X-Waves but the likelyhood of seeing characters like Dazzler or Storm in one of those waves is low at best. More likely we could see Forge or Doctor Nemesis or even Longshot. It just makes me wonder how long it'll take to get some of these figures. I mean how many of us were certain Beast would be in this "Strongest Wave Ever" only to be treated to the retread cop out that is Gladiator?

Will we ever see a new Beast? I'm starting to have my doubts. If so, will they be able to out do Toybiz's version? With the recent failure of the new Sasquatch to out do its predecessor, I'm certainly having my doubts. One thing is for certain though. With the current trickle at which we are getting new or wanted X-based characters, we are in for a loooong wait.
