Without rehashing any of the comic vs MCU debates, what comic style figures are at the top of peoples wishlists?

Assuming that Spider-Man, X-Men, and Avengers characters remain separated in respective waves, are there characters within each group that are glaring omissions?

I know I have my opinions and my favorites, but I am curious as to what other people are hoping to see.

Firestar, I feel this figure needs to be added to a Spiderman wave considering she was created for the cartoon show, Spiderman and his Amazing Friends. Also would like to see Tigra updated for the modern line.

Gosh, as good as Hasbro's been doing, a few comic figures do come to mind:

 

Comic-based Modern Falcon. I'd even accept one done as a redco of the Falcon/Cap figure if it were the only way to get it.

 

A decent Comic Hulk built on the tooling for the MCU Gladiator Hulk.

 

An updated Jim Lee Jean Grey.

 

A vehicle set featuring a ground-up update of both the Danny Ketch Ghost Rider AND his bike.

 

A vehicle set featuring a Marvel Now!-esque Cap built on the Cap-Wolf tooling and a Cap-Cycle including a shield that attaches to the windshield.

 

Oh yeah, sign me up for Dodge76's Firestar as well (original costume, natch).

 

I'd also love to see the next "Big-Box" set turn out to be Squadron Supreme. An updated Hyperion, Power Princess, Nighthawk, Doctor Spectrum, and toss in a rerelease of Speed Demon to help defray costs.

 

I could go on all day, but you guys get the point.

all of the suggestion above especially Firestar who has been my number 1 want for years. 

 

More of the original Guardians as well. Vance looks lonely and MCU Yondu is not working with it.

 

We are getting more Alpha Flight so I wouldn't worry about that.

 

I would also like an Original Human Torch as it has been one of the most obvious variant that both TB and Hasbro have skipped over the years. 

 

Also give the main Avengers and X-men teams a rest as give us some of the more obscure teams like Exiles or Force works.

Aside from the inexplicable omission of Strong Guy from any iteration of any ML line, the list is almost too long.

I am of the same opinion as Mako, that there still has, yet to be a "perfect" Hulk in the Hasbro era of ML. The McGuinness Hulk had no ankle pivot & the Doc Banner hulk was not a true comic Hulk cuz it used an MCU body sculpt. Beside the fact that it was a HTF exclusive, it just doesn't fit in aesthetically with other "Big Hitters" in the line like Rhino & Juggernaught. Hell, I wouldnt even mind if they just do a modern Amadeus Hulk, as he is one of the few Champions left to be done, and included a Banner Hulk or Savage Hulk (or even both) swap head.

In the same vein, Thor could also use an update with ankle pivot. I wouldn't even so much mind if the gave him the Ares treatment and just used the last good Thor figure they made before Jane Foster took over and replace his lower legs with parts from the Odin BAF. I could just imagine the package swap breakout that would follow that, tho. I imagine now that Thor is "Thor" again (finally), a new one will follow in short order. Hopefully his new design will be more towards his original look, tho I think the eye patch will be a permanent fixture from now on.

Lol, I love the Hyperion on non-Hyperion mold. How bout using his black and gold suit as well? And also, how bout a pair of fist and open interchangeable hands?

I think a vehicle set will give us a "perfect" modern comic Cap, just as it was done with Black Widow and hopefully the same can be done for a comic version of Winter Soldier who they have yet to do.

I too am in the Firestar camp, but I think they will eventually do it and knock it outta the park. Also put me in the group that think a Tigra is badly in need of an update and add Quicksilver to that list. Maybe with the acquisition of the mutant properties we'll actually see that happen and maybe even an Uncanny Avengers Rogue (fingers crossed).

Lastly, the biggest comic based omissions from the ML line in my opinion thus far are modern Star Lord and Gamora in her battle armor, both of whom could have easily been done in any one of the GOTG waves or even as a 2 pack, yet for reasons unknown & completely irrational, have never been done, or even implied to this point.

Throw in a soft-goods coat and put it on a Bucky Cap mold and I'll be down for that Gambit.

A "smart" Hulk from the 90's like in the Marvel Super Heroes video game. Easily my most wanted comic figure.

Id love to see a release of an updated beast. Either his Jim lee appearance or the uncanny feline version both would be welcome additions to my X-Men teams.

Though both versions are great ideas, I think the feline version should definitely be done 1st (or if only one can be done) simply because the "Jim Lee" version still stocks up with today's Legends. Besides, I don't think Hasbro could match the Toybiz figure's articulation. I can stand the Beast on one hand. If they (Hasbro) can match that, I'm all for it.

Here's my most wanted comic figures:

 

  • Gambit (Modern, based on his last solo series)
  • Kaine Scarlet Spider (new body mold with better articulation than the last one)
  • Quasar (Phyla Vell/GotG)
  • Bug (DnA GotG)
  • Jack Flag (DnA GotG)
  • Moondragon (DnA GotG)
  • Mantis (DnA GotG)
  • Quasar (Wendel Vaughn/Annihlators)
  • Groot (Red and blue GotG uniform)
  • Gamora (Red and blue GotG uniform)
  • Sauron
  • Mephisto
  • The Watcher

Obviously this only scratches the surface, there's quite a few left to do though.

Yeah I completely agree, I just cant imagine has to giving us a feline beast with it being an outdated appearance for the character and with their goal of remaking the Jim lee team

I think either one is completely viable. It just depends on which approach Hasbro decides to take. Do they want to try and redeem themselves for the POS they layed in the Nemesis wave or do they wanna take a shot at outdoing the awesome TB version? Personally, I think it would be much easier to redo their first attempt at the feline version cuz it's a much bigger task to try to unseat the TB version (unless the do it as a BAF, a la the new Lizard figure....hmmmm). But between the two, a more classic version is probably much more desirable among the fans.

If they can get it right, definitely desired by me.

I like how people are going to the Cat VS Ape Beast but seem to forget that they could do the more recent transformation before any of those. I actually would like that version.

I don't see how Hasbro would have ANY trouble outdoing TBs Beast figure, they've blown them away on every other figure they've redone.

 

As for Cat-Beast? It would be such a tragedy if they went with that as opposed to the real one.

I hope you're right, because if any are done, I believe it would be that version simply because they've been giving us a diet of Jim Lee style characters for the past couple years.

Side-stepping the Beast vs. Beast argument, another high-up on my list is Quake. Wanted her ever since she turned up on Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes.

Original design or new updated Agents of Shield based look?

As usual, I was stricken with a plethora of obvious choices after my initial picks. I have a few that I know a lot of others must be on board for as well.

1. Night Thrasher - another one that can utilize the Blade buck with some minor adjustments

2. Speedball - I always thought this was a no brainer, but apparently not. Easy reuse of the Pizza Spidey buck.

3. Quake/Slingshot - easy twofer for twice the sales. A repaint of the new Black Widow mold with interchangeable head sculpts & forearm sculpts. Wanna triple up on sales, include a SHIELD agent helmet head.

4. Unbeatable Squirrel Girl - how the Hell did we miss this one. I know it's just a matter of time, but no one's said it yet.

5. Ant-Man (Hank Pym) - easily done with either the ANAD Spidey 2099 buck or Bucky Cap buck.

6. Hydro Man/Scorpion/Tarantula - any one of these guys from the Spidey Rogues Gallery would be well recieved, tho I believe Hydro Man is the most deserving at this point, having never recieved the ML treatment before.

7. Monet or Siryn - two awesome X-characters that have long been ignored. Take your pick of any number of female bucks that can be used for either of these.

8. Iron Patriot/War Machine - the versions of these they made were actually pretty good but, still haven't got a true comic version of either.

As I said, I can go on & on and I'm sure I'll think of a few more as soon as I post this but it's a start.

Since I started the thread I guess I should add my own thoughts to the mix...

1. Jim Lee Gambit
I may be in a minority, but I would prefer a molded trench coat over a soft goods coat. That being said, in a perfect world Gambit would have arms that pop out at the shoulder like the upcoming Mr. Fantastic, and would include a set of arms without the coat sleeves. Also, I would love the regular head sculpt with the classic messy shorter hair style and then another headsculpts with the longer hair style Gambit sometimes sported in the late 90s and early 2000s.

Classic shorter hair:

Longer hair:
https://marvelousnew...php?itemid=1944

2. Unbeatable Squirel Girl
I also cant believe, especially since we have Spider-Gwen and are getting Gwenpool, that we havent seen Squirrel Girl yet.

3. Occupy Avengers Hawkeye
Since we got the retro Toy Biz Black Widow and are getting the one with her motorcycle soon I have been able to stop looking for the one from the Winter Soldier two Pack. Now that leaves Hawkeye as my only main avenger that Im missing. I just cant justify spending $40 - $60 on the Rocket Raccoon series version when I really dont think its a well done figure. The Occupy Avengers costume is more or less the same and would give collectors like me a chance to pick up a modern Hawkeye.

4. Warpath
Im still hoping that a 90s X-Force Warpath is part of the Deadpool series and just hasnt been announced. But, if not, hes toward the top of the list for my X-Men related characters.

5. Beast
Like everyone else, Im hoping for a new Jim Lee style Beast to complete my Blue Team. I think an alternate new ape style head and gauntlet could be included so that he would also be able to create his current Uncanny Inhumans look.

6. Secret Empire Captain America
We got the figure in the (dead?) 3 3/4 Universe scale, so it only makes sense to get a Legends version too.

7. Kingpin
I know this has been on everyones list for years.

8. Doctor Strange (Last Days of Magic)
I know we got a pretty lame repack in the Doctor Strange wave, but I would love just one more Doctor Strange figure that represents his current look. The rolled up sleeves, cool facial hair bros looking head, and medival weapons are something we havent seen. Plus, add in some alternate lower arms with gloves and an alternate head and you have a classic Doctor Strange that Hasbro has never done.

9. Totally Awesome Hulk

10. Unstoppable Wasp (Nadia Pym)

Your choice of course, but whenever anyone brings up molded capes/coats I ask the same question. What's the point of all that articulation if the figure is saddled with a coat that won't even let them sit down? You might as well buy a statue.

 

As for the Quake question: It depends. I would take either version..., but, if we're specifically talking comic versions, I'd prefer the original design. If AOS figures, which I've wanted figures of FOREVER, were on the table, I'd need the TV version with a spot-on Chloe Bennet likeness complete with the new face printing tech.
