With Sauron FINALLY, and I do mean FINALLY!!, we now have 2 of the 5 major X-men wants for a long time being made (the other one being the hoverchair but that is hinted to be coming).

 

So the major question is who should be next? are you Team Nimrod or Team Strong Guy?

 

Personally, I'm Team Nimrod. Not that I wouldn't be bouncing off the wall if Strong Guy announce, but Nimrod has been my number one X-men BAF want for over a Decade. I'll admit, it's because he was part of one of my Favourite arc of the 90's TV series involving Bishop.

Nimrod is a great and all, but more blue/gold x-men to make a team is where I vote. Id love to see what they do with nimrod, but strong guy and more 90's x-factor costumes would really be appreciated.

 

Though....Id also love a GIANT master mold baf.....

I'm on Team Strong Guy, mostly to rep my brother from another cyber mother Monron, but I'd love to have him for myself. Nine of would be a great Build-A-Figure. I can come off the bench on your team, if you'll have me.

Nimrod 100%. Dont get me wrong Id love a strong guy, but I think so far hasbro have been lacking in the output of their X-Men villains. nimrod would be a welcome addition to my X-Men display especially with the sentinel TRU exclusive being released this year.

Team Nimrod, but in his classic look, bring more X-Men villains!! Strong Guy would be cool in a box set for SDCC

Gotta be kidding me.

 

STRONG GUY FOR LIFE!

 

But as I said earlier, I doubt Hasbro has,the ability to actually do it right.

That sounds like a challenge to me.

Lol. In the past it woulda been, but after that way undersized attempt at Sasquatch I'm seriously starting to doubt Hasbro's ability to accurately portray him. Especially since he's been portrayed at so many different heights. In the comics Guido's portrayed taller than Colossus, yet on the database he's listed shorter. Not sure how Hasbro would do it. Either they'll completely ignore the database and go with the source material which could result in making him the proper height or they'll go by the database and possibly make him too small. In the case of Sasquatch it seems like they ignored them both. Both source material and database showed him to be of a size quite a bit bigger than most powerhouses in the Marvel Universe, but though the figure looked good, there's no one out there that can say he was correctly scaled out. He was barely taller than Rhino and shorter than Juggernaut. That begs the question; were they really that sloppy educating themselves with the character or are they doing as much as they can to skimp on materials? Honestly, how much would it have cost to add another half inch of material to his thighs to make him taller, if only by a little bit, than Juggy? After the care they took to make sure the new Comic Iron Man from the BP wave was the proper height I just new they would do right by Sasquatch regardless of how doubtful it looked in the pics, but no, I was wrong. Such a disappointment. Either way, I'm not all that confident that the result of Strong Guy will live up to the hype. Seriously.

personally i'd rather Nimrod, but however i personally am not to overly interested in either, rather have Emplate,  Windigo King  or Shadow King (Monster Form), or even a Bloodscream (in his monster form) , all of those would be far cooler

If Nimrod was done right he could be a very cool figure. Like with Multiple Man, a Strong Guy would only interest me if Hasbro plans on doing the entire 90's X-Factor team, but I guess if I had to choose I would go with a cool Nimrod.

Dudes already explained him for me haha i see above, yeah he was a character from Agents of Smash, and he also appeared in Ultimate Spider Man, so technically not a Comic character he exists in Animated Universe soley Earth 12041 , BUT looks awesome and would be a fresh take on the character, which would make better then just a "new" wendigo figure, which i'd imagine would sadly be alot like Sasquatch we just got

that as a BAF would be sick? am i wrong?

Not necessarily wrong, just misguideded. Lol, JK. I suppose this could be done as a Wendigo BAF with a head swap with an attached chest piece. Y'know, mix a little serious with the obscure, a la the Dirk Anger head swap. A little nod to the cartoon wouldn't be too bad as long as we also got a real character out of it. As far as where he belongs, I'm not sure an X-Wave would be the right place for him. You know how Marvel forbids the intermingling of the Avengers & X franchises. No dice. Strong Guy is still on the top of my list, followed immediately by a JR,JR era Nimrod. With the new Monster Venom buck it seems like Strong Guy is a foregone conclusion, but then again, how many of us were convinced an updated comic Hulk was on it''s way when the Ragnarok buck came out kickin' ass & blowing our minds?

I'm team Nimrod, we need more X-Men villains, but I'm sure we will get Strong Guy soon, they are going to give us X-Factor, just as they are giving us Jim Lee X-Men.

I'm team Nimrod, but my absolute dream would be a massive Krakoa figure. I don't care how many pieces you'd need! I want it!  Split it up over two waves! Make it an exclusive! Chop up a bunch of Man-Thing pieces and glue them together! Whatever it takes. 

Also, what do we think the odd are on a non BAF Brood? I'd like an alternative to the MArvel Select version. They could do a BAF, but I feel like it would be too small for a regular brood, especially becasue the queen was a baf back in the Toybiz days. 

 

Lastly, I'm the only one interested in a BAF Cameron Hodge?
