Alright Bishop!!!!!!!!!!! Now I just need a Hasbro Gambit figure and my X-Men team is complete. I am not concerned with getting Jim Lee versions anymore. Just want to finish my comic figure collection as best as I can.

Yes, Bi(freakin')shop, finally! Let's all collectively pray for alternate bald & greasy Jheri Curl head sculpts & removable red scarf. An Omega Red update has been a long time coming. I just hope they make the tenticles somewhat movable & don't give them the typical static symbiote arms treatment we've had to endure for years. In my opinion, they can't outdo the TB version if they don't get that one detail right. Wolverine and Lady Deadpool are easy enough to predict and easy enough not to screw up. Will we get to see toe claws this time? You better believe one of those Deadpool will be a movie version and I bet dollars to donuts the other one will be DP in his X-Men uniform.

 

I'm thinking Warpath still makes it into the Sasquatch wave. The pics posted (I forget by who) showed the computer listing 7 figures in the wave and we've only seen 6 revealed. Unless they changed the count for this wave we still have one more that needs to be unveiled.

 

As far as the whole Disney/Fox thing not being such a bad thing, I'm still holding my breath. Of course, as far as the movies go it will be a great thing, but I still think the ML lines will take on the same process as all the others. At this point I just don't think they exactly know what to do with it in regards to DP. With the decision that DP would remain an "R" rated property I think Marvel & Hasbro have to be really careful with what they may be perceived to be marketing to children. Believe me, once they figure out the angle MCU will be just as prominent in both DP & X-Men waves as the others. Luckily, for now, DP is about the only movie figure worth doing. I mean, we can all agree the movie version of Domino is pretty bland and I don't think anyone is clamoring for a movie version of NSTW tho I wouldn't be too opposed to a movie Cable or Colossus.

 

Crossing my fingers that Strong Guy finally gets his day in the sun as the BAF.

See guy the Fox buy out is a good thing.

 

Yeah I was super excited when I heard the news and still am. I want to see the X films done right. As far as figures go, I am pretty close to wrapped up with the comic figures. Just need a trench coat Gambit and I am good. Prof X would be cool. So would redo's of Banshee and Longshot but not going to hold my breath.

At first I was against the idea of Mickeyland buying up all these IPs, but it will be good for the figure industry, and it's not like Fox was making good Marvel movies.. which they weren't.

Looks like this is no longer a rumour.

 

 

Lady Deadpool - I was really tempted to get the out of scale MS version but this looks incredible. I mean just look at that ponytail!

 

Omega Red - I be honest I always found the TB OR to be an only okay figure. But this one is miles better. I do hope that you can switch out the tentacles though.

 

X-men Deadpool - HAHAHA!! Hasbro I love you for even considering this version. This is just a fun addition.

it also should be known that the Ant-man and Wasp wave might be merged with the Avengers Infinity wave.

 

Not surprisingly since the first one ended up at retail outlet stores. I just hope they look into doing a giant-man figure again.

I dunno, I don't exactly ever remember Bishop or Laura-rine or even any of these figures being 100 percent confirmed. Up to this point everything about this wave has been pretty much rumor, hasn't it? Don't get me wrong, I'd love for both of them to be a lock but the way they only revealed these 3 figures reeks of the way they revealed first the Black Panther wave, then the Infinity War wave, specifically the 3, and only 3 comic figures first and then the movie figures much later to complete the wave as the movie nears it's release. Remember, we still haven't been shown the 2nd half of the Infinity War wave, but it's all but confirmed they are MCU based. And with Proxima Midnight most likely movie based that means we're getting 4 MCU figures vs 3 comic figures. Oh, joy!

 

All I'm saying is we can pretty much bank on a movie DP and most likely a movie Cable, so the real question is who gets bumped to make room for that 2nd movie fig, Bishop or Laura-rine (I'm sorry, I just refuse to call her Wolverine)? My personal preference is for Laura to be sacrificed as I actually believe the return of the REAL Wolverine will eventually force Marvel, reluctantly of course, to revert Laura back to her X-23 identity. Sorry, forcing gender identity politics has a way of turning around & biting you in the ayass. Ain't that right, Thor?

 

Back on subject, here's an even more horrifying scenario. How bout, based on the fact that only 3 comic figures have been revealed thus far, if both Bishop & Laura get the gate to make room for Cable & Domino movie figs? Now, we all know the Domino movie design is lame (what happened to that whole staying true to the source material thing that made the first movie great, huh?), but as we learned from Valkyrie & Karl, being a lame movie character doesn't necessarily exclude you from becoming a lame action figure. With the acquisition of the Deadpool movie rights, is it out of the question to think Marvel may have coerced (ie. forced) Hasbro to "reorganize" this particular wave, along with every other proceeding wave, to more resemble what's pretty much become standard for all ML assortments? I guess we'll just have to hope Toyfare will shed a bit more light on the situation next month.

 

On the positive side I do love this version of the X-Men DP, plus it opens the possibility to do the "serious" X-Men DP as an anchor for a future wave. Omega Red looks amazing and it's good to see they wasted no time utilizing the Deathlock buck to make another awesome character. Looks like that Hyperion on a non-Hyperion buck might be a reality after all. Lady DP looks pretty good and I'm sure the rest of the Deadpool Corp. won't be far behind. Even though it will never top the first figure, the new Deadpool looks pretty good on the Spidey 2099 buck. Gives it that 90's skin tight look. Hopefully the final products paint app is as glossy as the press image, though I really doubt it. Also it would be really cool it they included Headpool & Dogpool as package-ins with DP & Lady DP. Whaddaya say, Hasbro? Time to show the loyal fan base a little love with another Magneto head sculpt type bonus. Most likely we'll see them as a 2 pack in a future wave. Gotta milk 'em for all their worth I guess.

 

Oh well, here's to hoping Bishop ends up making the final cut & even better, Strong Guy getting the call for the BAF. Team Strong Guy for life!

There's no way this even remotely connected to buyout. The buyout has yet to actually take place, it's only been announced. These figures were likely slated for release well before. The design/prototype phase all takes longer than a month. We now have promo pics. This was planned before disney announced to buy fox.

I agree the buyout might not go through for another two years. Meaning Disney earn nothing from Fox for the immediate future. I highly doubt theyll be promoting Deadpool or the X-Men until everythings gone through fully.

    • Since he was so sorry and apologetic about his tweets,  why not delete them? And this whole "I was being a provocateur" excuse is laughable. The reality is that the things he said we're so reprehensible and perverse there was no believable explanation he could offer,  so he just said he was joking... Yes, joking about serious issues does not immediately mean that the person is involved in them. I'll give you that,  but this wasn't just one tweet,  this was a whole series of horrible tweets, not one of which was funny in any way, all revolving around the same subject,  pedophilia. Which should raise a Red flag in most people's eyes. Often where there is smoke, there is fire. Especially in Hollywood. Have you ever heard of anyone by the name Weinstein, Spacey, or Singer? I agree that people can certainly change,  but why not go back and delete those tweets? The mere fact that Gunn left these up on twitter, suggests to me that he was never all that concerned or apologetic about their content. If I was to tweet something awful, get called out on it, and apologized, I would go out of my way to remove the offensive tweets. And while I know the GOTG cast has stood up and said he isn't the same person he was back then,  but let's not pretend that any of the cast actually know what Gunn does in his private life. My opinion on Dave Bautista is just that,  an opinion and I stand by it.
      Gunn is the one who really mishandled this situation. A public figure like Gunn should know his tweets will be held to a higher standard & yes these vile tweets will probably define him for some time, quite fairly in my opinion. However,  I don't think this sends a message to your average person,  that no matter how much they've changed as a person they'll always be defined by their lowest point, as they are simply regular people & not public figures like Gunn, the millionaire Hollywood director. The sheer volume & subject matter of Gunn's tweets were beyond awful & extremely disturbing. A public figure like Gunn should know better than to post these sort of things that would come come back to haunt him, & had he been sorry enough for tweeting about how much he enjoy's little boys touching his "naughty place", he would have deleted them, however here we are today & it feels like more than anything else,  he's sorry he got caught.
    • Gunn did explain the purpose behind those tweets, expressing that his intention those years ago was to act as a provocateur. He additionally had already apologized for his raunchy attempts at humor. I don't think that joking about serious issues in such a way necessarily means that a person has a thing for them, especially if the purpose of those "jokes" is to cause a reaction. It's making a joke which is offensive for the sake of it being offensive, and not necessarily to insinuate some kind of depraved fetish. There have been many news of idiot tourists making the Nazi salute in Germany, which doesn't automatically entail they're Nazis. They're just idiots (at the very least, hopefully). I believe this is a similar case with James Gunn.

      His tweets are disgusting, and don't say anything nice about the person he was in 2010. However, Gunn himself and the people he has closely worked with for over five years expressed that he has changed and that he's no longer the kind of person those tweets reflect. I don't think any kind of conclusion from this incident should be made without taking those people into account. And I don't think it's appropriate to assume Dave Bautista is depraved solely based on his stance from this situation. He knows much more about James Gunn than the slim portion most people get to see. Gunn's situation has been mishandled for the most part by people online, and shows a toxic mentality. It tells people that it doesn't matter how much they have changed as a person, their lowest point will always define them. And just in case there's any doubt, I don't mean to defend James Gunn's tweets, or the type of "humor" we waved like a flag back then. I don't even want to pretend to know what course of action Disney should've taken. It's a slippery slope, but there should be some balance between painting him as a misunderstood saint and a depraved would-be child-molester.
    • Pedophilia is not something that should EVER be joked about. It is a real problem worldwide and it is horrible. The tweets made by James Gunn were extremely insensitive and vile,  especially to victims and their families. Not one of these so called jokes were funny and they suggest that Mr. Gunn at the very least is a sick individual who could very well be involved in pedophilia in some form. He is simply not fit to direct anything until all of these "jokes" are adequately explained. I find it very sad & pathetic that so many people have defended Gunn and his disgusting tweets. It speaks volumes when thousands jump to the defense of a man who has endorsed pedophilia & may himself be a pedophile, simply because he directed a couple of entertaining movies. Here's to hoping that Disney will fire Dave Bautista too. He has been the most vocal of Gunn's supporters and I suspect has some disturbing skeletons in his closet as well.
    • I'll give you this, the figure is a perfect match for this wave. There are one or two winners, a killer BAF, and the rest are just... why?
    • Totally agree with FASVB and the reviewer that this outfit is totally worth the purchase, but that a huge specific plus is the Laura unmasked head included, which like everyone else apparently, I intend to place onto my X-23 figure from the previous DP wave. Also, on a related note to the review: Hasbro's QC in these post Infinity War waves seems to have fallen off dramatically...I got a Magneto w/ no unmasked head packed in from HTS. That and paint apps being so poorly applied are going to have some impact on the line if not unchecked going into 2019 and the expected price increases.
