I keep teling you guys. don't expect the X-men Wave to be 90's eccentric. that just wouldn't sell to newer fans.

 

It doesn't matter. We are getting a better looking 90's Rogue so I am content with her. Also you never know, my nephews got into He-Man and the Masters of the Universe cartoon series through watching Netflix. I also think there's a comic book series selling right now based on the old 90's cartoon series.

Well, it looks like, just based on the Civil War and Absorbing Man waves, that the 2016 waves will follow a full thematic pattern.

 

That's to say, every single figure save for one will be paired with another and lumped into a distinct theme (Edge of Spider Verse, for example). Cut cardback design costs possibly? If this carries over to the X-Men wave, then here are my predictions for odds on likely to make it. I'm not saying ALL of them will make the one wave, just that they're most likely to make it over some others.

 

Rogue & ???- We know Rogue is in. The question is, who will be her partner? I'd say either Gambit (lovers theme), Polaris ("Green is my favourite colour"), or classic Mystique (but this is a low probability). Jean Grey in one of her unreleased forms would be another choice, since Hasbro seems to love Jean the most. Combined with her two Toybiz appearances, Hasbro has released 1) Marvel Girl, 2) Marvel Girl 1st appearance/New, 3) Black Queen, 4) Jim Lee... and they had plans for two unreleased versions. I wouldn't like her making it but I also wouldn't be surprised.

 

Northstar & Aurora- finally got their MU release. Plus one can assume Dwight and co. were building up to this when they had Puck as a BAF in the Wolverine wave. Also, Defenders GR and Misty lumped together proved that male and female pairings are not out of the question.

 

Polaris & Havok- if Hasbro has been listening to the fans as they said they were, Polaris should be a shoe-in. Who better to accompany her than Havok. The problem is, Rogue in Jim Lee form is also in high demand, so putting two highly demanded females in one wave is not likely. If Polaris makes it and if there is a future wave, she might make it in there instead.

 

Deadpool & ???- Well, he's a shoe-in, unless he gets his own wave... which I'm not betting on. The mystery would be his partner. Old Man Logan possibly? Cable?

 

Colossonaut & ???- Got MU representation, and he needs to fit the bigger male mold quota. He may be the BAF.

 

Old Man Logan & Laura Kinney Wolverine- modern representation. Carries on the Wolverine name post death, plus Laura fulfills a female mold that seems to be paired with a different female mold (Magik-Hela, Misty-Tiger, Wanda-Carol... exception being Thundra & Valkyrie)

 

Villains Pair- Gosh so many villains to choose from and not enough logic to narrow them down with. There WILL BE at least one pair of villains, if we were to follow the 2016 waves pattern. Ideally, I would love Lady Deathstrike (the Toybiz one needs to leave my display) but she IS female. AND a villain. Double no-no in terms of chances. Arcade, Apocalypse, Avalanche (classic)-- or the triple A's, as I call them-- have decent chances. Silver Samurai would be wonderful with Yuriko, though.

 

BAF- Sauron, Collossonaut, Apocalypse, and Nimrod have the best chances I reckon. As we all know, everyone went crazy for Sauron when a custom of his got shown in SDCC. Apocalypse to capitalize on the movie... yes, I know Hasbro is supposed to stay away from the Fox movies associations, and they've done that with the Jubilee and Puck waves. But in some interviews, the Hasbro guys have been unashamed at referencing how 2016 is gonna be a big X-Men movie year. Nimrod would be a great and logical alternative to Apocalypse if they want to keep away from the movie associations.

 

Dani Moonstar & ???- I feel like the ship has sailed for Dani. Last year and the year before, there's been consistent demand for her ever since they canceled her release. She even made top 5 most wanted figures here in MN based on the twitter poll made a year or two ago. But based on the polls in which I've partaken (Fwoosh, Marvellegends.net), people are forgetting her. Which is a shame. I WOULD LOVE DANI TO MAKE THE COMEBACK SHE DESERVES! Pair her up with Rahne and BAM! Golden! Or anyone else from the New Mutants, I don't care.

 

My Ideal Wave List

 

  • Manipulators of Memory partie deux- Moonstar/Rogue
  • Alpha Flight- Northstar/Aurora
  • Vindictive Villains- Deathstrike/Silver Samurai
  • Headliner- either DP or Wolvie or both... don't care. I've come to accept this will occur no matter what.
  • BAF- Sauron

I doubt Jean Grey will be in it. I mean except for a few costumes or remakes she is pretty much done.

 

I do think Gambit and Deadpool are a shoe in. but Hasbro may leave them for a wave each. not a Gambit or Deadpool wave but the main character for a X-men wave each like how Wolverine is more then likely to be made.

Lmao! Hilarious.

 

But... People are already rationalizing that it may not be Jean (Cyclops).

 

I however think it is her, which would annoy me. Why does that ginger keep coming back?!?! Geez. Hasbro has major boner for her.

 

I think the list is decent. Assuming that Wolvies is Logan and Phoenix is Jean, every character has pretty much been done before (though not necessarily an exact costume remake). Cable released in the SAME wave as Phoenix again, yikes. This is the third time.

 

I was hoping for a wtf character that no one was expecting... And look at that. No villains. Quelle surprise.

even I can admit I was wrong yet I was right as well. not a bad wave if true. No new characters but much sort after remakes.

 

  • Phoenix - Hopefully it will be the one that never got released but it will more the likely be a remake of the green version. if not, and this is a big if, if could be Rachel Grey.
  • Havok - been asking for a updaye for a while. given that hasbro can be cheap, will must likely be a modern Uncanny Avengers version. could possibly come a burnt face swappable on the Bucky cap build.
  • Cable - don't know which this one will be cause im not as big a fan of Nathan as most people are.
  • Iceman - Thank god. just please be a modern iceman with ice hair.
  • Kitty Pryde- more then likely just a remake of the TB version on Hasbro Teenage sculpt.
  • Deadpool - this was a obvious inclusion. more the likely just a standard red and black DP.
  • Wolverine - well knew either him or Cyclops was going to be in it. hopfully the Marvel Now version or might surprise us and reveal X-23 version.
  • Rogue - only one we truely now are coming.

not a bad wave but not a very exciting wave. more the likely this will be a testing wave to see will this franchise will sell,

I pretty much agree with you. This could potentially have 4 of the previously unreleased MLs.

 

Phoenix - There's the slight chance that this will be the AOA version lol, but I think they may just do that white

Havok - will be that modern one that was shown at SDCC all of those years ago. I'm betting they will throw some of those mystic beams in with it, but what are the odds that we get an UA alternate head?

Cable - that big body Hyperion mold? He may not have a uniform based on anything, but a combination of things

Iceman - for the last time, NO BLACK SHORTS. They may use the new Spidey body but as long as he's translucent

Kitty Pryde - Oh gee, i wonder what body they'll use. LOL You are 100% correct.

Deadpool - unreleased red version

Wolverine - Marvel Now

Rogue - 90s has already been confirmed, but I still want that modern.

well for the Hellfire club box set my 5 / 6 would be all in their british clothing or some kinda version that made them famous

 

  • Sabastian Shaw - if a hellfire club set didn't have him, it not a proper Hellfire Club set
  • Selene - another must for the set
  • Emma Frost or Jean Grey - I think one of these should be included. jean more then Emma just to give it the whole Dark Phoenix saga feel
  • Donald Pierce - doen't have to be in the Corset thing. maybe a robot/Cyborg body
  • Mastermind- could either be the trenchcoat version or his illusion verion.

 

I'm mad I seemingly missed the whole Hellfire Club discussion before listing them in my group as a boxset. SMH

Xtreme, Iceman is listed in wave 1. I can only see Psylocke making it out again in a classic colors version of her X-Force boxed set figure released a few years ago. Probably with a "Crimson dawn" head (since you could easily swap the "regular" head from the other figure if you own it). Magneto got a remake in the X-Men wave, unless you mean a new/different costume, like his black/silver costume... I wouldn't mind that.

 

Still waiting on that Polaris!
