Black Panther Wave RUMOUR!!!!!

Recommended Posts

AS ALWAY TAKE AS A GRAIN OF SALT OR EXPECT IT TO CHANGE.

 

There as been a rumoured listing going round for the Upcoming Black Panther wave. Before I even go onto this, it might not get reveal at SDCC. More then likely a teaser or a semi full reveal in NYCC.

 

  • Black Panther
  • Iron Man
  • Namor
  • Black Bolt
  • Siberian Tiger
  • Leopard
  • Thing (most likely the BAF)

While most of these seem unlikely here my 2 cents. Like always, Hasbro is not putting there A-game into this wave when it comes to new solo movies. They didn't do it with the first GOTG, Ant-man and Dr. Strange. It is most likely just a safety in case the movie flops.

 

  • Black Panther - Obviously the new MCU version.
  • Iron Man - I don't think RDJ is in this movie so I'm hoping it's a ANAD version to complete the ANAD Avengers. They are only putting him in this cause A. he has a close relationship with Panther (being his former Knight) and B. to get this wave to sell.
  • Namor - Namor has had always a love/hate relationship with Panther so it's not odd to see him there. Hopefully a Trunks version.
  • Black Bolt- I doubt it would be the TV / MCU version so more then likely it will be the SDCC version. Maybe with detachable wings like Spider-woman?
  • Siberian Tiger and Leopard - Like most people I believe that one or both of these are just code names for Killmonger or one of the other cast.
  • Thing - This seem to be the BAF which work since he would be a great BAF. No Man-Ape but I suppose Hasbro are just playing that character safe in case SJW complain.

Since it's just a rumor, for now not gonna worry about it. But I do hope Thing is not the BAF, it seems like a good wave to cherry pick, but a new Thing to go with the rest of the F4 would change that completely. So here's hoping that much isn't true.

For the love of God, I hope the Iron Man is a comic version. I am sooooo freaking tired of the same old MCU repro's. I just want ONE, just one damn comic Iron Man in scale with the rest of the comic based Legends. Just one. I don't care if it's the Extremis armor, the Superior armor or the Modern Modular armor. Just give us something, anything to put on display with our currente Avengers figures. The same with a Thor figure (but I'll get to that another time). How freaking hard is it to understand at this point? The Bleeding Edge armor was good but compared to the current ML it is way too small.

 

Iron Man is a huge commodity and I guarantee an entire comic based wave with a Crimson Dynamo and Titanium Man with a Firepower or Detroit Steel BAF would sell better than any Avengers wave that's ever been put out. Just give it a shot. I promise it will sell on pre-order as well, or better than the Juggernaut wave. A few simple repaints of current molds like Heatwave and Blacklash and Living Laser could round out the wave. Hell, even throw in a mass release of the Rescue figure (with a Pepper Pots alt. head, of course) and you have nothing but gold, I swear. I just think Hasbro, in its attempt to try and tie in as many MCU characters as possible, is missing out on the strength of the comic fanbase, which made Legends what it is since way back in the day before all the movies came out.

 

If Hasbro watches these forums, as we all assume they do, let's let them know how much we want these ideas to come to fruition. It is 100% proven that when they follow what we express here, whether purposefully or inadvertently, ML prospers. We don't need 3 MCU Star Lords in a year, seriously, do we need to tell them this. A battle suit Gamora and a Firelord (nothing more than a Johnny Storm repaint with a new head sculpt) would have garnered so much more support. As a fan, I have ZERO interest in the MCU Star Lord/Ego 2 pack. I will not even look for it or think twice about it and I suspect the majority of ML fans feel the same. My personal feeling is that this 2 pack will bomb horribly and I hope, if anything, it serves to prove a point. The demand for MCU figures dwarfs in comparison to the comic versions. It just does. Dont question it too much, just follow it and ML will rise to heights you've never seen. Honestly, one MCU per wave is more than enough. If it weren't for thE BAF pieces, I swear nothing but MCU figures would be rotting on the pegs.

 

That's my rant in a nutshell. More comic figures, less repeats of MCU figures, redo the figures that didn't get done right the first time (Quicksilver, Mystique, Klaw, Emma Frost, Tigra, etc.), give us figures of characters we've long been waiting for (Thing, Strong Guy, Jamie Maddrox, Comic Star Lord, Psylocke, etc.), listen to the REAL fanbase and you will make lost of money. We've never been wrong before.

Thank monron999!!!

 

I said the exact same thing when people started whining about the Marvel Knights wave not having Luke Cage and Iron Fist. They have to have a mixture of MCU and Comics or else the wave would not sell. An all MCU wave wouldn't sell as much as some people think so they have to have a mixture of comic to appeal to normal fans.

 

As for the Iron Man wave, I have to disagree on you on that. while I would love an Iron Man based wave or waves, the shear fact is that most ML fan are tired out with IM and it wouldn't sell that well as you think. Hopefully RDJ will be back for a part 4 of Iron Man and we get a few waves of that but as it stands it seem unlikely we will get a Iron Man wave.

 

but yes we do need some comic Iron Man. I really hope for a ANAD version just to complete that team.

Didn't Hasbro do a whole wave of comic Ironman a few years back when the first or second movie came out? Right before they started up the Infinite Legends line?

Thing has already been revealed as a Walgreen's exclusive so him being in this lineup appears to be #fakenews.

Not necessarily. You do realize Thing currently wears a distinctively different costume than he did with the Fantastic Four, right? And we all know that Hasbro has an affinity towards creating new non-distinct full suited body sculpts (as he would be in his GOTG or SHIELD costumes) that they can reuse for future figures.

true and if it is true they might do the GOTG version that some people have been asking for and do the proper one for the exclusive.
