Toys - r -us new Days of Future Past set

Recommended Posts

well someone at hasbro should get onto TRU and fire this guys cause he is just after revealing that they are planning a new DOFP box set for marvel legends.

 

No Clue on who is in it but given the box art it might be a new Sentinel (though it might be too small) and DOFP logan.

What? You're actually mad someone leaked new ML information? And X-Men product to boot. I don't care who it was. Bring it on, baby. Don't think we'll get an actual Sentinel. The Toybiz one is untouchable IMHO (is that a challenge, Hasbro?). Hopefully we can finally get an updated Mystique and (deep breath) a new Beast figure.

The box appears to be similar in size to the Defenders set. If this is so, here are the possibilities:

 

Destiny (I know you want a new "classic" Mystique but since we don't have any Destiny, I'm going with this)

Avalanche (We've never had an ML version of this guy)

Storm (The version everyone wants)

Sprite (Kitty in her original costume)

Classic Colossus (With the thigh high boots)

Angel (Red costume)

Mystique (Of course she's a possibility)

Rachel Summers

Unfortunately, the Beast wasn't a part of this storyline except to show he was killed.

 

Of course we could get flipped and Hasbro gives us the future X-Men in their green prison jumpsuits! Lol

 

I agree the box looks too small to be a Sentinel. Not to mention we just got an "older" Logan (Of course that hasn't stopped them from playing the re release game again).

 

In any case, I welcome whatever it is. Any time we can get ANY iteration of comic based figures, I'm widdit!!!!

 

Of course we could

Oml and dofp wolverine are not the same thing. In fact dofp Logan is looks more like young Logan with grey sideburns. But it would just be a repaint and new head of oml so we can agree on that.

 

Looking at stills it does seem that the only figure are the sentinel and dofp Logan. The comic cover only has them and the cover image as well

If I took a stab at guessing this (pun intended), based on the box art we will be getting a reissue old man Logan buck with the Tru/retro Logan head, along with a reissue Marvel Universe Sentinel. Who wants to take bets?

That's what I was thinking, except it would be a Marvel Universe-sized dofp Logan (though I'm hoping it IS an Old Man Logan with the Retro head... cause I really want a street clothes Logan...)

Hopefully its 3.75 Legends size Logan and Sentinel. It would make the most sense. How many other different characters would there be to make this set interesting? Sentinel is big enough to make the 6Legends guys happy and the 3.75 Logan would make the 3.75 guys happy

Looking at the size of the case I highly doubt its 3.75 scale. Im happy with it being 6 inch. Maybe this means that now the classic sentinels been redone we can get an updated nimrod either based on his classic look or one of the ones from second coming.

Honestly, I'm good either way. The real selling point for me is the Sentinel anyway.

Yeah, the MU Sentinel is huge enough where I wouldn't see Hasbro mocking up a whole new piece. The scale is still close enough and judging by Hasbro's current disdain of any 3.75 line (where TF has the Joe ip been??) my best guess it'll come with a 6 inch Logan, and a Kitty Pride if we've been good boys and girls this year.

The MU Sentinels were made at almost perfect scale for that line. When Hasbro released Galactus (which was around the same size), it came with a 3.75 Silver Surfer. This box looks to be about that size. Guess we'll see. It's practically guaranteed to be revealed at Toyfare (especially if Hasbro didn't intend for this kind of "leak"). I agree that it'll be a 6" Logan based on the Old Man fig we got last year. If this is an exclusive (and the jury is still out on that), it would make sense however if it were a 3.75" scale fig. Not as much production needed for exclusives. Like I said; we'll see. It's mine regardless. LOL

It'll be probably be the MU Sentinel retitled/retooled as Mastermold or something. Then with OML with Vintage repainted head. They may add Gambit or a Bishop, possibly Prof X with hoverchair

It would be a sheer disappointment if this turned out to be an MU box set. That line has been all but dead since the return of ML under the Infinite brand. I actually was becoming a collector and chasing down older figures before that, under the belief that it would eventually phase out ML and be the only outlet for ML figures. Thankfully ML came back in a big way & the substantial reduction of articulation, materials and paint apps on the MU line have given me no reason to resume collecting MU, or ML 4" or whatever the hell they're calling it now. The last one I ever bought was Doc Green in his techno armor. That 80's style Rogue almost pulled me back in but in the end the bad articulation kept me away. Now I have more money for ML. Time to put that line to bed, or just start releasing each wave as complete box sets that include one oversized figure. I wouldn't mind purchasing them as a splurge item between ML waves or as cool convention or etailer exclusives.

I was an avid MU collector prior to getting into the 6 inch infinite line. To me the MU line was the greatest line of 3.75 figs of all time. Then they fired David Vonner, and pretty much killed MU right then and there.

The Disney/Fox merger has done wonders for X-brand recognition, a new X-Men movie is coming in the near future (two if you count Deadpool 2), and there's a successful LA series on the tube.

 

Recognition equals value, value equals investment, so I gotta say, I can see Hasbro dedicating the capital to make a new Sentinel tool, especially as the MU version we're all talking about is saddled with an electronics package. Add in a repack figure like OML and the price for manufacture looks better and better.

 

Who knows, we MAY just get a new Sentinel this year.

3 movies Deadpool 2 (5/2018), Xmen Dark Phoenix (11/2018) and New Mutants (2/2019) more if you count Gambit and Xforce but I doubt Gambit will ever get made. 2 tv shows The Gifted and Legion but all these projects were in the works long before the news about the merger broke.

I actually meant projects coming in the immediate future (and I'm not counting New Mutants at all). In any case, my point was anything that gets your property out there in the mainstream, where people are reading, watching, or talking about it raises its value in the estimation of bean-counters. Hence, they'll be more likely to kick in the extra scratch for new tooling on an action figure.

How do you count New Mutants out? It is very much part of the current picture & it will spawn an ML wave. Even better, I don't forsee any of the actors (except possibly Anya Taylor-Joy) being of enough notoriety to warrant a movie style figure so the wave should be mostly comic based. I think you can bank on a re-issue of the Magik figure (awesome for everyone who missed out on the exclusive), a Wolfsbane (hopefully in hybrid form) and a Sunspot at the very least. A Mirage has been on the watch list ever since the prototype shown at Toyfare so many years ago, though some massive redesign using the current molds would be in order. Cannonball would also be cool & though Marvel owns both properties again I still think they have a huge issue with consolidating X-Men & Avengers properties right now which puts characters that belong to both universes (like Cannonball, Quicksilver & Uncanny Rogue) stuck in limbo for now. But characters like Karma, Magma, Cypher or maybe even Boom Boom or 90's style Jubilee could all be fair game. Of course, I'm sure at least one Wolverine or Deadpool will have to make it into the wave as an anchor. The best part is, since Warlock has already been done as a BAF, the one character that makes sense to be the BAF is......drum role please.........FREAKIN' STRONG GUY. He is the large powerhouse character that will be in the most current revival of the team and, as everyone else is so quick to point out, Warpath, should he make it in the wave, should be of comparable size to Colossus, who was a single card figure. Yes, I think this is the best chance to get the most ignored & unfairly discriminated against character in ML history.

 

Team Strong Guy for life!

I was gonna argue the point, but you're absolutely right. I have to concede to my own argument. Just having the name "New Mutants" attached to a mainstream theatrical feature will elevate their "name value."

 

As for Strong Guy... , bring him on! There's ALWAYS room for: A) A big honkin' BAF ready bruiser, and B) A new Marvel Legends X-figure NOT based on Wolverine, Cyclops, or Deadpool. Just make sure he's in a wave with Forge, Quicksilver and Wolfsbane (I'm building X-Factor and am NOT a patient man).

If its the old Masterworks Sentinel from Marvel Universe then I will pass on it since I already have one. I will pass regardless if its a new different styled one because I don't feel a need for one. I do hope they are bringing Masterworks back though. Maybe we might get that canceled Fing Fang Foom figure after all. Crosses fingers. But I am cool if its a set of X-Men figures from that story like maybe a Rachel Grey thrown in.

Same here. I felt like the line was approaching it's end before they reduced the articulation and rebranded it. Everyone kept making wish lists on the 3.75 forum for more obscure characters. I kept mine small and hoping for major characters to close out my collection with like Black Cat, Vulture, Bishop and hurrying up and releasing the canceled Emma Frost before it was too late. Man I am glad we got those. But wished they could have held off one more year before reducing articulation like they did so they looked like they belong with the rest of the line.

I held out for that Emma foreve. I eventually sold the whole collection before they finally released her, which I now regret. The 6 inch line is aces though, so no worries

So.... now that 1/5th of the TRUs are closing, what are the chances this still sees the light of day?

Mine was spared luckily, which probably makes it an even bigger target for scalpers.

    • Yeah, you don't know what you're talking about, "Pole."  Disney lets each division and studio operate with a huge amount of autonomy. Marvel Studios takes care of Marvel Studios business, including hiring and all that goes with it, like background checks. The autonomy they operate with was earned, but it's also given out of necessity; despite what people want to believe, Disney is just too damn busy with their own operations to micro-manage Marvel Studios, Pixar and Lucasfilm. To suggest they all knew about the tweets years ago is pure ignorant speculation. Marvel Studios may have, but Disney didn't. The real reason for the firing is a simple one: Disney's core value, the ideal everything revolves around and something ingrained into their corporate culture, is that childhood is sacred, special and magical. If there is one line you definitely can't cross with them, it's that. Disney couldn't care less about the conservo-twats who dug the tweets up or what supposed pressure they brought to bear. The truth is, Disney would've fired Gunn once they became aware of the tweets, regardless of the way they were discovered/brought to their attention. As I said, those tweets crossed an uncrossable line with Disney. You're apparently also ignorant of Disney's history of cutting ties with profitable people who exhibit unsavory character flaws. For example, once accusations came to light and an investigation was made, they fired John Lasseter--Pixar guru and animation genius who turned Disney animation around--because he had become an abusive drunk. That's a huge loss for Disney there. You just know Dreamworks or Illumination would love to snap him up asap. Or maybe you didn't know that they forced the Weinsteins out of Miramax and then sold it off completely because they heard about Harvey W's atrocious reputation, but couldn't find anyone to step forward and press charges. They believed what they heard though, and cut ties rather than associate with a horrible person, no matter how much money he brought in. Also, Gunn was an unknown when he was hired BY MARVEL STUDIOS (and not Disney). It was actually a huge gamble to hire him as the director of a big budget flick about an obscure group of comic characters the general movie-going public knew nothing of, let alone cared about. He hadn't done anything to suggest he was capable of helming such a project. He wasn't sought after. He wasn't admired or in demand. To assert Disney knew beforehand and turned a blind eye because of the money he'd bring in is just astoundingly stupid, lacking in both facts and common sense, and full of shat.
    • Don't care about the game. Not going to buy a PS4 for one game. Prefer my 1X for gaming. It looks like the Devs did a nice job. Folks should have a good time.   I do have a pre order in for the Legends figure based on game though.
    • PM sent if you’re still looking for the boxcar.
    • Went to three Walgreens after work.  The newest legends any of them had were from the first Deadpool wave.  
    • The unmasked head is definitely the best feature of this figure.  I saw some other reviews and people got better painted ones so I guess you were no so lucky. The hair to the side puts some dramatic effect but limits a bit which poses you can put the figure on.  But what really bothers me and I think all are like this, is the huge gap in the crotch area. Tha is very ugly. Psylocke has that problem too, but this figure looks a lot worse. I think that they should not use legs so skinny because that would make it easier to hide or just fix the peg and sue a shorter one.  In comparison I think the X-Force version looks better and the fact you can put the unmasked head on it is a plus.
