Official SDCC 2017 Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

Everything looks great so far and even I have very little to complain about. Only problem I have is that Domino looks like a straight repaint of Mockingbird. Hope the final product has at least a few differences. Also, love all the throwback wave, but I think by not including a BAF Hasbro is missing out on the perfect chance to update the Hulk. Oh well, maybe the eventual release of the Totally Awesome Hulk will include an alternative head or something. Spider-Punk is a total cliche, but it's a thousand times better than Spider UK. I was hoping for a Spider Noire sighting but I'm sure it will share legs,with the new Hydra figure. Glad the GR is Blaze. I loved Danny Ketch the character but that bike was lame & we already got that bike in the TB days. I swear, if Strong Guy is the BAF for the Deadpool wave I will wet myself. Are we actually getting 4 Walgreens exclusives next year or is another gonna hit this year? And, even though Classic Thing was announced as an exclusive doesn't mean we can't still get a modern (larger) GOTG version as a BAF. Gambit & Psylocke are shoe ins for next X-wave & a Beast, a new Emma, & a Nimrod BAF would be a knockout punch, but if it''s not gonna hit till next year I doubt there'll be any reveal at this Con.

In case anyone says that Songbird is basically the same as the older prototype

 

This is the prototype

I hope we get some main x-wave reveals today. I agree we'll probably get a new Gambit, Storm and Beast. Part of me hopes Monrons right about nimrod being the BAF. Other than juggernaut in the first wave, the x-waves have been noticeably lacking in villains. Hopefully if the deadpool wave is successful they'll ramp the x-waves up to two per year.

Wow...kind of makes you wonder what they saved for the "big reveals" today, I should probably make sure I'm sitting down when today's reveals hit. I need that Ghost Rider and Motorcycle, so badly! And I'm so glad that Songbird came out looking so good, this is hands down far superior to the old one they scrapped a few years back.

Most excited about Spider-Punk. I love that they're really digging into alternate Spider-Men from Spiderverse.

 

Toei Spider-Man with Leopardon PLEASE!

 

(I know it'll never happen because of rights issues, but one can dream.)

Wow, it looks like the rumor lists were true. Songbird was rumored to be in the Avengers wave for Infinity War which the whole wave is a pass for me it looks like. Songbird looks nice and I may just grab her but not a priority for me. Google search Marvel Legends 2018 rumors and you will see that list pop up.

 

Black Widow is a must have for me. She looks sweet with that bike. I am not a fan of Gwenpool and Spiderpunk. Mysterio maybe the only one I am after in that wave. The Deadpool wave looks nice and I am happy we are getting a different X wave then just that to go with it.

 

I hope we get:

Storm First Appearance or the Jim Lee version. Either works for me but I really feel in my bones that we are getting a Storm figure with her being one of the main X females and we already got Rogue, Jean Grey, Kitty Pride and Polaris.

 

Gambit, This would really make this a homerun if its the classic one in his trenchcoat.

 

Jim Lee Pyslocke would sweeten the pot or a Rachel Grey figure which I feel we need a proper one.

Yeah so far this bike series are the only two figs i'm interested in. Maybe Cable and Domino.

 

Spider punk is gonna peg hard and Songbird, while pretty, is fairly obscure.

 

I'm ready for todays reveals. In addition to a Jim Lee Psylocke, I hope we get a JL Beast, Storm, and Prof X.

Songbird being in the Avengers: Infinity War wave (1st one) is confirmed by Dwight Stal. I'm putting my money on Gambit being revealed today as a definite with Psylocke also in the mix (Gambit was brought up in casual conversation and Dwight while not acknowledging anything, kept clowning about how they definitely have trenchcoats. I know that's not much to go on, but after chopping it up with Dwight and the rest of the design team for 6 years running, you learn to pick up on the subtle clues the drop). I don't know if they're tackling the Beast yet ( I don't know if they think they can compete with the Toybiz version and they take that challenge very seriously. They ask all the time how some of their redos stack against TB). What IS apparent is they're going through the 90's Jim Lee/Blue team squad 1st so I don't think we'll be seeing the likes of Storm, Bishop, Colossus(in 90's gear), or Nightcrawler yet...but I've been wrong before! Tony asked me to guess what character will be the BAF for the Deadpool wave. The only hint he gave was it's a character tied to both X-Men and Deadpool. During our conversation, I brought up Captain Marvel long range and said the BAF should be Sasquatch. Both Dwight and Tony both kinda went "WHOA" on me. I'm telling you all this because even though my default pick will always be Sauron, I'm going with Sasquatch as my pick. Both are tied to the X-Men. Both are Canadian. That's my pick.

 

PS: Since we always get a Wolverine, I'm thinking we finally get an "in scale" Tiger striper this go round.

I hope we get Multiple Man, Strong guy and Sunspot with this X-men wave.

Multiple Man was brought up Thursday. All I know is if this happens, Hasbro BETTER do the 2 per case game if the wave only has seven characters! This would probaly be the 1st time in Legends history that a long packed item was the hardest to get. Army build hell all the way!

Maybe X-23 in her current suit for the Wolverine?

Sure, but the legs improve this figure dramatically for me. I needed a comic Iron Man for my dislpay, so I'm excited.

I hope someone brings up the MSRP of the Vintage Series. What exactly are we looking at? I mean I love the idea, but they're not exclusive, no BAF pack-ins, less elaborate packaging, limited accessories, and 100% reused tooling. Love or hate, no way I'd go $20-25 for these.

One thing the Hasbro team is trying to do is make the characters more in scale. You may have noticed Thor (Odinson) is a little smaller. He's been entirely too large for entirely too long! It's a mad This should translate to the Thing not needing to be "larger". He's only 6 feet tall and if Colossus didn't need to be a BAF (and at 7.5" that's a perfect 1:12 scale), the Thing definitely doesn't! I know a lot of collectors are obsessed with the "bigger is better notion, but it really isn't.

Amazing showing. Carded Widow is a must have, as well as Lizard even though I don't really want many of those Spider-people.

 

Apoc is also gonna be epic and I can't wait to see the 2018 X-wave.

 

Fantastic 4 also looks amazing. Too bad we couldn't see Thing. Glad Mr. Fantastic will have interchangeable arms.
