I too think a Morph would be a great idea. As old as the cartoon was that character still stays fresh on everyone's mind. The best part of that figure is that he could actually serve double duty as the coveted X-uniform army builder figure. Also, a much demanded Moonstar figure could serve as the female uniformed counterpart. Personally I see it as a winner. Hasbro would sell a metric ton of these things to me alone. I still buy every Nick Fury figure I find. I'm one shy of a full dozen.

Lol. WTF? If you weren't so knowledgeable about old games & cartoons I would think you were a lot younger than you probably are. I had your back to some degree about the game figures but as much as I'd love it I must also agree that figs based on games & cartoons so far back are probably a definite no go. It just isn't practical, man. So I'll meet you half way. Figs based on cartoons & games? Yes, but only if they're current and relative to today's market, and MvC & CofC or Future Fight are about the only games I perceive to be able to reach a large enough market to make it worth Hasro's while to attach the Legends moniker to.

Sorry guy, I usually don't speak in absolutions but honestly, it ain't happening.

I think the entire licensing thing is relative to how the product is presented. Take the Capcom vs. Marvel franchise, for instance. The Marvel characters look pretty much the same as they do in the comics so to have extra licensing agreements attached to produce those characters would be nonsense. The licensing side would fall on the Capcom characters.

Anyone who plays Contest of Champions can clearly see that there is some sort of clear collaboration with the Hasbro & Marvel teams. So much that some figures such as the Colossus, Moon Knight and Old Man Logan figures seem to be direct ports from that game. Remember how everyone was scratching their heads when they revealed the Colossus figure? To those of us who play the game it was on old familiar face. I could perceive an actual COC wave or perhaps 2 packs. It would actually be an ingenius wave of getting out a few characters who haven't been done or are in need of a reboot, or maybe some combination of the two. I could see 2 packs consisting of an improved modern Captain A (not lame ass Sam) vs. Crossbones who actually looks like the MCU version but is as big as the comic version. There could be a perfected Banner Hulk (with ankle pivot) vs. Modern Loki or even pairings like battlesuit Gamora vs. comic Elektra or modern Karnak vs. (dare I say it?) Beast.

So on the outset, game figures do seem kinda like a slim pipedream, but when compared to a game that follows so close to source material that you actually see it materializes in the action figures currently being put out it doesn't seem like such a long shot.

I'm not gonna hold my breath, but if something like this happens I wouldn't be a bit surprised. I promise I won't take credit for it either. Lol.

Ya, Walgreens has been my go to for the last few waves. I'll go to 5 Walgreens before I attempt a trek into that madhouse welfare refuge they call Walmart. Walgreens has really stepped up their game & the exclusives are awesome. My goal is to not have to go hunting at Wmart until the Black Panther exclusive hits.

I found the entire X-Wave visiting 3 Walgreens. Got all the figs needed to complete the BAF, passed on Logan for now. I'm sure there will be plenty to go around. It was a productive weekend.

As far as Panther goes I wouldn't be too worried. If history shows us anything Walmart has a tendency to go heavy on their exclusives. I wouldn't waste my money paying a premium price just yet. We'll be swimming in them before too long. As for Sue, keep checking Walgreen's website. They usually show up there a few weeks before they hit the shelves. At least in my area.
