Well...he is a monkey

I couldn’t even get him to stand up without falling apart.  I was very excited when he was announced, but when I finally built him, his arms wouldn’t stay on and he kept falling over.  Just really poor execution.

Was the Puck figure as bad?  I never finished building him since I didn’t need any of the characters other than Wolverine and Creed at the time.

I may be in the minority but I like puck. Now he is a bit small to go with the new Sasquatch and Gaurdian....but I like him.

I fully believe they will round out Alpha Flight over the next couple of years.  It is totally in the realm of possibilities that we could get a Puck redo provided they pursue finishing the team.

I thought the Puck they came up with has an unusually small head (granted I only have the head and not the rest of the BAF parts). I'm afraid when Hasbro does come out with a new Puck, it'll have the same articulation as Spider-Ham.

My current Puck is a 3.75" Executioner. LOL

I honestly didn’t even consider that.  What a complete waste it would be if he couldn’t get into that “Cannonball” pose.

Puck would have to come with two BAF parts if he's in a wave: the torso and the head.

If Hasbro doesn't want to do a Puck figure as part of a wave, perhaps they can do a 3-pack a la the Thor/Groot/Rocket Infinity War set. Do a NorthStar/Aurora/Puck and maybe include Snowbird's Owl form.

Any way to get Alpha Flight I support!  I'd like the following characters

Snowbird

Shaman

Aurora

North star

Marrina

Heather as Gaurdian/ Vindicator

BAF: BOX

 

I know that's female heavy but with Gaurdian and Sasquatch already being made it cuts down on the gents.  

(I'm going to repost this in the build a wave thread.)

I don't have sp//dr but all of the reviews I have seen praise his poseability.  Is it the design or size you don't dig?

Neither, really, it's just that I don't care about the character at all.  It's a good figure, just not one I had any real desire to see in plastic form.

One of my biggest face palm moments as an early legends Collector was only picking up the Beta Ray Bill from the MODOK wave because I thought I didn’t want to build him. Now I have the base in my build a figure bag taunting me every time I open it.  

I don’t own it, but I can’t believe no one has said Kingpin yet.  He looks amazing.

Yeah, Kingpin is my favorite. I feel he is the best BAF they have done so far. He is just great and awesome and so is Juggernaut. I probably would of bypassed this past Spiderman wave if it was not for Kingpin. But I feel the best is yet to come. I imagine if they do Strong Guy really well, he will be another great BAF.

They really are taking their sweet time with that Strong Guy. I mean who was asking for a honking Caliban, a Wendigo, a Warlock (though he was a nice surprise, imo), etc.

actually I am personally so wanting that Caliban, and have wanted a Wendigo forever.

I don't care one bit for a big fat dude in a suit (Kingpin) , anyone wants my BAF peices for Kingpin i'd gladly trade (I have both Arms and both Legs and don't care about ever building a civilian fat mobster)

I really think Sauron is the best baf I have seen. from the wing to the body it feels like a lot of care went into designing that one. Also I just really like M'Baku from the Black Punter movie so happy to see him get a figure

Caliban was an easy one to do since he's mostly repainted parts, and he fits squarely in that 90's nostalgia zone we're currently in.  Of course, so does Strong Guy, but bluntly I think Strong Guy is even more obscure than those other characters.  And there's probably the question of which design to go with, because a more normal-proportioned one would likely be easier to do, but a normal-legs/huge torso and arms likely "feels" more faithful to most folks.

This is a tough one as I've really liked some of the BAFs over the past few years.

For 2018, I gotta give it to Sauron altho Monster Venom was great.  Probably Sasquatch 3rd,  Lizard 4th, Apocalypse 5th.  All very good BAFs imo.

For 2017, I'd go with Gladiator Hulk, with Sandman a close 2nd due to his cool arms/hands.   altho Man-Thing and Warlock were both unexpected and great.  And i've grown to love the Titus BAF too.  Another great year for BAFs.

For 2016, its a toss up for me between mcu Giant Man and Dormammu although i'd probably give the edge to Dormammu. I also liked Abomination, and , to a lesser extent,  Absorbing Man.

For 2015, I only have Odin and Groot.  gotta go with Odin since the later  Groot re-release is at least as good as the BAF.

Given the above, I think I gotta go with Sauron as the best BAF.  Not my favorite character by any means, but such a cool figure.  Hope they imitate his wing design to come up with a revamped Annihilus figure at some point.

The only BAF i've built for 2019 is M'Baku.  Not gonna bother with Kingpin, Kree Sentry, Armored Thanos, or Caliban... for each of these either the BAF itself doesn't do much for me or the character selection in the wave doesn't appeal to me enough.   So mostly cherry picking waves so far in 2019, which seems to be working out.

Man this is a tough question!! I never had any of the toybiz ones. Juggernaut is sick, and funny how so many reviewers complained about it, but it is still pricey to complete these days. Apocalypse is stunning, I love the colors they used. That blue, and then the black with that green/blue iridescence, it’s just phenomenal! I still love my Monster Venom! Rhino and Sauron is so Awesome too! I just got the KingPin wave in the mail! And I’m looking at the Man Thing wave! Such a tough decision....  Tie - Juggernaut and Apocalypse!

I have for so long wished I completed that Man-Thing, such a great BAF, and one of my favorite Marvel Characters at that (and I own the Toybiz version, which I thought for so long was good enough, but feel otherwise now) but it was such a lacking wave in my mind, I however would at this point just buy all of the figures I don't have for that BAF , Lizard and Monster Venom are for sure my second and third fav BAFs at this point with Sasquatch being 4th
