Remakes - Needs, Wants, and It would be nice ifs...

Recommended Posts

So what remakes of characters previously done in Marvel Legends do you want to see done?

 

And by remakes, I mean a straight remake of a character, same costume, etc, as was produced before. Just on a better body or face sculpt.

 

For me:

 

Needs

Classic Captain America - I could see the recent Ultimate Cap being slightly retooled into the classic version

Toad - say no more

Magneto - anything still solely represented by the Toy Biz ML1 Iron Man body needs a redo. Period.

Rogue (Jim Lee) - Looks like a drag queen after a rough night

Cyclops (Jim Lee) - Looks tiny compared to other figures now.

Red Skull - they have not gotten it right

Silver Centurion Iron Man - see Magneto reasoning

Storm (Jim Lee) - her head is SOOOO tiny compared to the other women

Iceman

War Machine - see Magneto reasoning

Dr. Strange - mine doesn't stand up and is lost in his cape. Something must be done.

Nightcrawler - I could see major advancements in design and articulation

Mystique (classic/white dress) - nuff said

Scarlet Witch

Spider-Woman - both Jessica Drew and Julia Carpenter are being done a huge disservice on that awkward body

Wasp - if any woman needed a new body and two costume variants, it's Wasp over Jean Grey

Mandarin

Invisible Woman - Is it so hard to get a pretty face on Sue Storm?

Absorbing Man - after all the good stuff with the Wrecking Crew they can do better with Absorbing Man

Guardian - looks like a happy meal toy

Black Bolt - subpar

 

Wants

Gambit - they've done so well reinventing the sculpted jacket that this cloth jacketed Gambit is outdated

Beast (Jim Lee) - Articulation has come a long way, I could see some great improvements

Sabretooth (Jim Lee)

Mr. Fantastic - the ML 5 version doesn't fit with the more recent sculpts for the rest of the team, the Hasbro two-pack version's head is too cartoony for me.

Vision - The Toy Biz version is outdated, the Hasbro one is TINY and laughable next to Heroic Age Avengers figures

Wonder Man

Daredevil - still plenty of room for improvement

Psylocke - Just need a slight color re-deco on the X-Force version and we're good to replace the Toy Biz monstrosity

Quicksilver - since I got him my figure's body has severely discolored from the rest of his parts.

 

It would be nice if...

Colossus - I'm using the Marvel Select version in my display, but it would be nice to get a new ML version

Silver Surfer - Not a fan of the Toy Biz or Hasbro versions

Kraven - the Marvel Universe version looks better than the Marvel Legends version

Electro

Cable

Havok (classic) - I think he could look even more slick nowadays

Ms. Marvel - on that Moonstone body she'd be HOT

Longshot

1. Jim Lee Rogue (Everyone agrees ToyBiz"s was a joke)

2. Scarlet Witch

3. Magneto ( What was up with the Vince MacMahon clone?)

4. Jim Lee Cyclops (Should have swapped bodies with above)

6. Ms Marvel

7. Spider Woman (Hands are way too big

8. Psylocke (Neither versions face is that pretty)

9.Juggernaut TB version (Too ape like)

10. Most Spider Man villains

11.Blade (He's too small and that leg problem).

12. Black Bolt

13. Nova (Removable helmet)

14. Phoenix/Dark Phoenix

15.Storm (prettier)

16.Cable (Every version needs to be taller)

17. Domino

18.Mystique ( Each version could be prettier. Nobody likes ugly even if she is blue)

19. Madame Hydra ( See above. Villain or not. She's not drawn that way in the comics)

20. US Agent (Taller)

21. Ol Skool Sentinel Series Cyclops (The body is too goofy looking and too much washing)

 

If I just got Rogue, Kraven and Scarlet Witch, I could patient for the rest.

My number one want is a new classic red Daredevil. The new Black Panther body would be a perfect base to start from.

Without a doubt ... the Scarlet Witch.

Give me a new Black Bolt and a new Annihilation styled Nova

Heck we all deserve FREE and updated versions of any figure using the Doc Samson and Adam Warlock bodies because of that awful V-crotch with no thigh cut ... and the includes the Thor Legends version of Loki.

 

We need a new Dragon Man as well

I would have to say that an updated Magneto is my number one want. That ultra buff Toybiz Mags just hurts my eyes. Also, I'd go for a Jim Lee Cyclops.

 

Wants:

 

Magneto

 

Jim Lee Cyclops

I agree SolidSnake with a new Magneto

 

Iceman - aside from Wolverine, the X-Men are gettin disrespected with MLs,

Mandarin

Red Skull

Domino - I hate her head sculpt

Cannonball - at least a modern uni...I actually like the head sculpt

Easily the most needed is Scarlet Witch... the new moonstone body would be great as she is very curvy.

 

Magneto definitely needs an update, it's been a loooong time since the Toybiz maggy

 

We need a more scale accurate Wonder Man... the new Hyperion/Luke Cage body would fit nicely

 

How about doing Ultron right? The Toybiz one stunk and the new IM wave one just doesn't cut it.

 

How about a classic sunfire, the AOA Sunfire is fine, but not the one we are most use too.

 

Absorbing Man! The Hulk line one is still better than the Hasbro one, but come on guys, do one of the best Marvel villians right.

 

Blackbolt/Adam Warlock - terrible body and articulation.

 

Loki, the Doc Sampson body one is nice, but how about the classic costume or even better the semi-classic Walt Simonson costume?

 

The Destroyer - need a scale and detail accurate Destroyer, seriously

 

They never got Silver Surfer right, he's slim, but 6"4" (scale alert!) and those Roswell alien faces don't cut it.

 

Red Skull, again neither Hasbro or Toybiz got him right.

 

The Vision, the Toybiz one is very dated and the Hasbro one uses that joke of a body. Do one of the greatest Avengers right please.

  1. Nova (I have to have a Nova Prime/Annihilation Richard Rider)
  2. Mary Jane (hate the movie line ones, my Spidey display is incomplete without her)
  3. Scarlet Witch
  4. War Machine (personally I'd like one that reflects his Heroic Age look, but I'll settle for anything)
  5. Ms. Marvel (why this isn't happening yet is beyond me, but an easy custom if it doesn't happen)
  6. Mandarin
  7. Spider-Woman (again Moonstone body, there are some great customs of Spider-Woman with this base)
  8. Moon Knight (armored version from Vengeance of the Moon Knight)
  9. Fantastic Four (all matching and no "goofy" Reed Richard head or crazy elongated Reed)
  10. Gambit (as mentioned above the sculpted coat, and arms would be great)

Probably others but these are my top 10. If I could get the top 3 or top 5 I'd be quite content.

Needs: 1) Scarlet witch ( the toybiz one is a joke )

2) Rogue ( jim lee) ( the face on the toybiz one is ugly and the moonstone body would add curves)

3) Ms Marvel ( The toybiz one is too skinny and needs more curves )

4) Blade ( the one we have is too small and looks funny )

5) Psylocke ( the new one is better, but needs to have more curves with moonstone body )

6) Beast ( the toybiz one is cool but has no ab joint and a funny neck, and the hasbro ones are more disabled than the Professor X figure )

I'll keep this brief...

 

Would love to see a remake of X-23, I have the ToyBiz one and it could really, really be improved upon. Especially in light of how nicely Hasbro has been doing with female figures.

 

Second, Rogue. I guess technically Rogu has been remade and it is an awesome looking figure. Hasbro release her!

As mentioned above time to change this list up.

The other half of the list is getting made (fingers crossed) or has been re-made. I can't even remember how long Spider-Girl (May Parker) and Ms. Marvel have been on either of these lists.

  3. Gamora (DnA version)

not sure if people would want something like this but this is interesting to see with this current wolverine body mold. Now that Hasbro has made an unmasked wolverine head they can utilize it for different wolverines - ultimate version, age of apocalypse, etc. IMO the ML Ultimate Wolverine from Blob series needs to be improved just like what they did to Emma Frost.

They could have just given the previous yellow wolverines a removable head in the first place. lol. and maybe make a different version with this head:

    • Not a bad assortment, especially for a movie series. Not great, but not bad. Pretty sure my opinion will improve once we see pix.
    • I scored a blink today for 6$ :D im stoked
    • Ahhh that suuucks! I was going to say, when you cancel your old card, order a new card at the same time, and the purchase should automatically transfer to your new card. That's what happened with me when I lost a credit card and went to cancel it. I was afraid that all the things still outstanding that were tied to my old card would be lost. For example, I was still waiting for a refund to finish processing for an item I had returned. But all those leftover things were transferred to my new card so I didn't lose anything (despite not physically receiving my new card for several days). But it sounds like you had bad timing where Amazon attempted to charge it in the brief window in between your two cards. That sucks. It sounds like you're willing to pay a little bit more for the set since you offered to cover the shipping and also provide bonus stuff. If that's the case, why not just pay a bit more for the scalper prices on ebay? I see some going for an extra $40. That's not ideal, but I'll bet the prices will come down a bit if you wait some more as well. This boxset is brand new so the prices are high now and if you wait until it's more prevalent in the wild, it should come down. Or maybe even Amazon will change course and (re)allow shipping to the UK again after a while. Edit: Now I see that you already did address Ebay as an option. I would still say wait until the prices come down. Or maybe you'll find it for sale locally or on another website that will ship to UK.
    • yes, toy fair at the very earliest. Hell we haven't even gotten a trailer released to the public.
