Any chance of Hasbro re-releasing Rogue

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. I'm new here.

Rogue is my favorite character and I really love the figure released in the Juggernaut BAF wave. Unfortunately, I was unable to procure one.

I have been hoping for Hasbro to re-release the figure, but no luck. And the secondary market prices are way too high, even compared to other figures from the same wave like Jean and Kitty.

Now, the accessory-packed Deadpool from that wave proved to be super-popular and Hasbro did reissue it (presumably to coincide with the Cable from Sasquatch BAF).

We have a similar situation on our hands... with Rogue's beau Gambit coming up soon... and Mystique being released with an optional Rogue head. Considering her secondary prices, I'd say there's still a solid demand for her out there.

Do you guys think Hasbro will re-release that Rogue? Is there any way we can request that?

I'd vote for a reissue in a heartbeat, that's for sure! Rogue has always been one of my favorites, too. Plus I'd love the option to display her with the Mystique-shapeshifting head (provided I can ever find Mystique, of course :unsure: ).

Yeah honestly i was hoping a re-release of Rogue would be part of the x-men vintage wave.  While i prefer her 80s costume (not that it was great, just what i'm used to),  doesn't seem like that version is coming anytime soon so I'd settle for the 90s version at this point.  (which ldoes ook great, again just not what i'm used to)

OTOH it is nice that the x-men vintage wave has a bunch of new characters or characters in different costumes from what we've gotten already.

I'd obviously welcome any and all Rogue figures that are forthcoming. But I WANT the Juggernaut BAF 90s Rogue BADLY.

I was able to get the 80s outback Rogue in the 3.75" scale... and I don't even collect that scale. But the Jim Lee 6" figure remains elusive.

If anyone knows how to get in touch with Hasbro, please let me know.

I wouldn't say no to the Jim Lee Cyclops and Jean either. But Rogue is a must-have.

I remember when Rogue was pegwarming really hard in my area at my local Walmart stores. They had to  throw  her on clearance just to get rid of her, Jean Grey and Kitty Pride. I wished I grabbed some of those to help ya'll out but I left them there thinking I would let someone that needed them a chance to find them.

I don't know. I think an 80's version is easily doable and a matter of finding itself in a vintage wave soon.

It could be possible, if they do a largely reissue Vintage Line, with maybe the Jim Lee Cyclops

Though I'm not certain, I'm pretty sure Disney/Marvel have put the kibosh on the entire Gambit/No Gambit movie scenario. Maybe there's been new news on that since but I've not heard anything. I think it's more likely with the acquisition, that there's a more peaceful approach to combining the Avengers and X-Men universes and an Uncanny Avengers Rogue may be showing up sometime in the near future. Also, you know Disney's probably leaning on Hasbro real hard about toning down all those offensive curves that the last Rogue figure had, so it's gonna happen. I wouldn't count on a straight re-release of the Juggy wave figure though.

Wow, I never even saw one in the wild in my area. The only two I have (1 opened, 1 MIMB) both came from pre-orders. If you'd only known then what you know now, you coulda made a mint on the resale market.

I think he meant the Gambit figure, not the movie. He wrote that back in March!

Unless Hasbro decide to release a Blue and Gold team box set (which I could see them doing) I think the chances of us getting Rogue would be in a different costume. Considering they were also trying to complete the first team of Uncanny Avengers, I think that's the most likely.

This video by Toy Shiz talks about rumors of an upcoming X-Men 3-Pack:

Anyone else heard this rumor? Which characters are supposed to be in it?

He got that rumour from other sites. It has rumour to be  Jean Grey, Cyclops and Wolverine set.

Ya, I realize that. It wasn't meant to dispute what he said back then, but just to give pretext to what I was about to comment on. Also, in his statement the assumption was made that since Cable (and Domino) were in the same movie, the DP figure was re-issued to coincide with it, as there were no actual movie figures made for the movie. Nothing was meant as a dig to him for statements made months ago, just to kinda update the likelihood of that scenario in the future.

I doubt we will ever see the exact same figure get a re-release, but a different outfit or a re-tooling perhaps, I mean a different outfit Rogue seems like a definite down the line.

I read that Hasbro are planning to allow E-Retailers the chance to restock individual figures instead of waves, but whether ti will include older figures and when it will happen it is hard to say

I will always love ToyBiz for introducing Marvel Legends and I always hoped for Hasbro to make the Toybiz ML packs but with their new figures, similar to what they are doing with their retro / vintage line.

I would like to see the X-Men set and throw in the Rogue there. Throw that new Wolverine, the new Gambit, the new Beast with lab coat, and the new Magneto that's coming up. That's a win-win for me.

I would also like the Sinister Six pack, and hopefully get the Hasbro Green Goblin and Elektro. Hopefully throw in a new Vulture figure in there as well instead of Black Cat.

I already had a Rogue figure out-of-box and a Rogue figure mint in box but I did find Rogue about a year later at a Winners (think Ross or Marshalls) in Canada. She was $12Cdn ($9US) and I wish I picked her up then.

Hopefully she went home to an X-men fanboy too!

Haven't we got most of those box set figures as standard Hasbro releases? Biggest thing I can think of off hand is a classic colored Electro. Odds are someone out there can make lab coats for both Beast and Doc Ock instead of requiring a reissue.

Wow I didn’t realize that this figure has become so sought after on the secondary market (I just eBay searched it and wow). Similar to what was mentioned above, many stores in Kentucky had Rogue peg warming for months. It’s bizarre how those sort of starkly varying buying trends occur...unless it was just some massive overstock in this region.

yeah one of those figures i kick myself for not buying it the time i saw it at the store.  (Electro and Chameleon are a couple of others but i think Rogue is # 1)

She'll probably be available again eventually, but no telling when, or if it will be in exactly the same sculpt/etc....

    • King & Queen: Black Bolt / Medusa - these two need to be redone Evolution: Mar-Vell / Captain Marvel - first appearance Mar-Vell in green and white Kree warrior outfit; other is red and blue Nega-bands costume with interchangeable head for white/blonde hair Enemies: Doctor Strange / Baron Mordo Heroes for Hire: Power Man / Iron Fist - classic versions of Luke Cage and Danny Rand  Nightwing Restorations: Misty Knight / Colleen Wing  West Coast Avengers: Tigra / Wonder Man - red jacket and sunglasses version of Simon Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: male / female - two bodies in tactical blue and gray uniforms, interchangeable heads to create Jimmy Woo, Jasper Sitwell, Clay Quartermain, Phil Coulson (male), and Contessa Valentina Allegra de Fontaine, Maria Hill, Sharon Carter, Melinda May (female)   There are so, so, soooo many more I could come up with. I also really like the idea of army builder packs for the Skrulls, the Kree, the Mindless Ones, the Leader's Humanoids, Hydra, A.I.M., etc.
    • I love that the Fantastic Four are getting their own wave(s), but I prefer classic looks to modern. Since the Walgreen's exclusive gave us the retro/classic look for Reed and Sue, I'd like to see the other iconic design, the blue and white costumes designed by John Byrne, made famous in the '80s and '90s and in the unreleased Roger Corman movie.   Wave 2 Mister Fantastic - with bendy wire stretchable torso; arms and legs would be good, too, but torso is a must She-Hulk - Fantastic Four costume Mole Man - 3 1/2 inches tall, comes with 2 moloid creatures the size of a Marvel Universe figure Super-Skrull The Wizard Paste-Pot Pete BAF - Annihilus Wave 3 Invisible Woman - in costume, translucent shield effect like the new toy has Human Torch - Johnny Storm in costume, attachable flame effects Namor - reissue with cape and crown, alternate head with more comic-accurate hair and eyebrows Skrull Scientist Mad Thinker Invisible Woman - translucent BAF - Awesome Android Wave 4 Human Torch - flamed on, red body, black lines, yellowish flame effects Crystal - classic yellow Inhumans look Triton -  Diablo Puppet Master Blastaar BAF - Dragon Man Wave 5 Thing - with blue pants Gorgon Triton Titania Firelord Impossible Man BAF - Ronan the Accuser  
    • TF is not one franchise it is at least four franchises at the moment.  Also no that they are doing the main members there is no need to release them again in the next wave. They should go back to the old He-Man idea and release main characters once a year, not every wave or in some cases two in every wave
    • True, but I could argue that Transformers is ONE franchise, and you may get 4 or 5 more waves throughout a given year. FF is only one of MANY franchises under the Marvel banner, every one of which must be serviced. There's no guarantee there will be another FF wave anytime soon, so you have to get your big guns up there right off. That's probably why, after waiting so long, Hasbro is suddenly hitting us with 90s X-Men left and right. Lord knows when we'll get another X-Wave.
