With Sauron FINALLY, and I do mean FINALLY!!, we now have 2 of the 5 major X-men wants for a long time being made (the other one being the hoverchair but that is hinted to be coming).

 

So the major question is who should be next? are you Team Nimrod or Team Strong Guy? 

 

Personally, I'm Team Nimrod. Not that I wouldn't be bouncing off the wall if Strong Guy announce, but Nimrod has been my number one X-men BAF want for over a Decade. I'll admit, it's because he was part of one of my Favourite arc of the 90's TV series involving Bishop.

Nimrod is a great and all, but more blue/gold x-men to make a team is where I vote. Id love to see what they do with nimrod, but strong guy and more 90's x-factor costumes would really be appreciated.

 

Though....Id also love a GIANT master mold baf.....

I'm on Team Strong Guy, mostly to rep my brother from another cyber mother Monron, but I'd love to have him for myself. Nine of would be a great Build-A-Figure. I can come off the bench on your team, if you'll have me.

Nimrod 100%. Dont get me wrong Id love a strong guy, but I think so far hasbro have been lacking in the output of their X-Men villains. nimrod would be a welcome addition to my X-Men display especially with the sentinel TRU exclusive being released this year.

Team Nimrod, but in his classic look, bring more X-Men villains!! Strong Guy would be cool in a box set for SDCC

If Multiple Man is being released in his 90s X-Factor costume, then I want the Build-A-Figure Strong Guy in the same way.

That sounds like a challenge to me.

Lol. In the past it woulda been, but after that way undersized attempt at Sasquatch I'm seriously starting to doubt Hasbro's ability to accurately portray him. Especially since he's been portrayed at so many different heights. In the comics Guido's portrayed taller than Colossus, yet on the database he's listed shorter. Not sure how Hasbro would do it. Either they'll completely ignore the database and go with the source material which could result in making him the proper height or they'll go by the database and possibly make him too small. In the case of Sasquatch it seems like they ignored them both. Both source material and database showed him to be of a size quite a bit bigger than most powerhouses in the Marvel Universe, but though the figure looked good, there's no one out there that can say he was correctly scaled out. He was barely taller than Rhino and shorter than Juggernaut. That begs the question; were they really that sloppy educating themselves with the character or are they doing as much as they can to skimp on materials? Honestly, how much would it have cost to add another half inch of material to his thighs to make him taller, if only by a little bit, than Juggy? After the care they took to make sure the new Comic Iron Man from the BP wave was the proper height I just new they would do right by Sasquatch regardless of how doubtful it looked in the pics, but no, I was wrong. Such a disappointment. Either way, I'm not all that confident that the result of Strong Guy will live up to the hype. Seriously.
