In Topic: Accessory Waves

12 March 2017 - 07:09 AM

My problem with vehicles is that most characters don't need them. So what would they make that would make sense? A SHIELD jeep? Cop car? Thor, Hulk, Hobgoblin, Scarlet Witch, Black Cat, Wolverine, Rogue, Electro, War Machine--just a few of my figures that I can see from this angle. None of them drive cars or planes or anything. And there is already a ghost rider bike, helicarrier, and blackbird out there. I guess they could re-release those, but Ghost Rider currently sells for around $60, I'd rather they re-release him than his bike.

As for the issue with money. I'd have to disagree with some of you. It's really just about preference. It seems like you, that responded, aren't all that much into ACBA or dynamic posing. And that's totally fine. But I am, and for those like me, I don't want to pay MORE money to get what we already should be getting. And let's be fair, BTW, not all Legends are WORTH $20 price mark. Eel? Diamondback? Scourge? Captain America #5835893? Scourge was actually a good figure haha, but my point is that, no, I would not want to justify raising the price to get stuff that should already come with the figure. The Deadpool figure shows that they COULD do it exactly as I described without issue.

Between every NORMAL wave include an "Accessory Wave" figure (as described above), which is just an "army building" figure with a ton of extra accessories. And as for the base sets. Well, they could just be Toys'r'Us exclusives. An "Asgard" or "Dr.Strange" set with a ton of magical and energy accessories for people like you @DSmith. You'd be one of the one who wouldn't care about the guns, so don't buy that one. The point of the bases is to include those extra accessories. So you don't need or want extra guns, but like energy effects? Buy an energy effect base. Want extra webbing and Venom goo? Wait for a Spider-Man base.

I see a lot of your plan as not happening.

 

1. I doubt we'll get movie versions of ANY X-characters while Fox is still in the mix with X-movies. Don't ask me why, but that's been the name of the game since X3.

 

2. You named a 7 figure wave with a BAF, and FOUR of those seven (not counting unidentified villain) are female. DOUBT THAT in the most fundamental way.

 

3. The BAF is ALSO female, making that FIVE out of EIGHT releases being female. Not in this 616 universe, if I've ever seen it.

 

I'd buy every single character on your list. But they'd never be released that way.

1. Since X3, have there been any figure releases alongside the movies? I'm not being sarcastic here, I'm really asking. I don't think First Class, DOFP or any of the other films had figures made in the 6 inch figure scale.
2. Like the all female Toys'r'us box set?
3. Never say never. Hasbro has shown that they're nothing if not surprising. And collectors have shown that the stupid misogynistic rules of yesteryear have nothing to do with what we will pay. I think of the top five most expensive second-market Hasbro Legends, at least 3 are female.


In Topic: Deadpool Wave Speculation

I don't think there will be a Deadpool wave this year. And if they do one next year, it'll tie in with the film, so I'd say:

 

-Deadpool (movie version) Accessories: twin uzi, Swords, Ryan Reynolds/Wade head.
-Cable (movie version) Accessories: Machine gun
-Domino (movie version): Accessories: Twin handguns, sniper rifle
-Lady Deadpool (same accessories as Juggernaut BAF Wave Deadpool, but different colors)
Variant of Lady Deadpool: Gwen Pool
Variant of Domino: Mystique
-[Whomever the villain is. I'd like to see a movie take on Arcade or Mojo]
BAF: Spiral

I chose those characters because Hasbro seems to want to promote current characters foremost, but if there's nothing current in the movies or comics, then they go for classics. We do not have a recent Mystique or Spiral, so they'd need to update those classic characters and they have nothing to represent the more modern characters like Gwenpool, Lady Deadpool or the movie versions.
