Figures in desperate need of a "Vintage" release

Recommended Posts

When I was on a toy haul earlier, I noticed that certain figures are asking $70+ on the after market?!

So with that in mind, wanted to start a discussion about which figures need a re-release due to rarity etc.

 

90's Rogue - Gotta be able to complete the cartoon team, without taking out a mortgage on your house.

90's Jean Grey - The body they used in the Jubilee BAF wave isn't aging well. Bring the ruckus!

90's Cyclops - I hope you're noticing a trend. BAF or no, nostalgia is gonna compel people to assemble the TV suits.

Iceman - Just use the Astral Dr. Strange body, keep his feet and "Icy parts" and he's done.

Omega Red - Every line should have one villain. Give him some bendy coils, and no one will cry about buying another Omega.

Spy Wolverine - Every X Men line needs a Wolvy (federal law, or something...) instead of trying to reinvent the wheel, give him his Weapon X/S.H.I.E.L.D. suit, with all the extra weapons and everything!

 

Who else needs to be added to the list? Who should be removed? Who makes you list? Comment below.

I figure my choice isn't far-fetched since the Black Panther vintage release used his modern look, so this is what I would like:

A re-issue of the Heroic Age Iron Man from 2013. While I already have it, a re-release of this figure would fit well with one of the purposes of the vintage waves which is to provide new fans with a good array of "starter figures" for their collection. The Heroic Age Iron Man is a much better figure than the Neo-Classic Iron Man from the first wave and it's a suit that serves the "ultimate" interpretation of modern Iron Man. On a more self-serving note, I would also hope that a re-release of this figure includes more accessories than the original version, namely that comic book Tony Stark head that only appeared in that UK Disney Store exclusive Iron Man / Cap / Thor / Hulk / Ultron 5-pack.

We're in need of a new Iron Spider. It could be done with minimal new tooling on the Spidey 2099 or Pizza Spidey body. This of course gives them an easy repaint if they ever want to release an Aaron Davis figure as well.

I’m going to say:

Stryfe

Jean Grey Phoenix 

(from the Phoenix/Cyclops 2 pak)

Puck

Spiderman 2099 (Original Costume)

Red Hulk

 

The last two on this list, I ordered from China, interested to see of they are worth it?

if this is a thread about figures already available previously needing a re-release in Vintage packing (for easier purchase) (rather then buying them at their inflated current prices)

I am going with

Comic Captain Marvel

Spiderman 2099

Ghostrider

Ms. Marvel (un-boxed set'd)

Comic GOTG (Un-boxed set'd)

Comic Hela (Un-Boxed Set'd)

 

those come to mind

I could use a Carol Danvers comic Ms. Marvel as well! I’m adding Bafs to my list, as Hasbro has re-released them though not in “Vintage” packaging... Another I’d like to add is The Blob baf!

IMO I'd go for

 

Edit!: wait wait! How about a Mary Jane Watson figure single packaged XD uuf i nearly forgot about that.

Edit 2: of course my mind is failing me once again, but I'd also love to see a Falcon comic version as well.

Ms Marvel (Warbird/single packaged)

Doctor Strange (Classic comic design)

Scarlet Witch (Classic comic design but without those pesky high heels)

Quicksilver (Single packaged since i know there is the three set of Magneto, Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch)

I would like to mention other names but i can't at the moment so these are my thoughts, but especially a doctor strange would do :).

I know he hadn't been announced when you made this post, but Iceman's on his way. I'm confused by your choice of Omega Red, though. He just came out last year, and is still pretty available at MSRP. I wouldn't argue about the others, though. Maybe Cyclops and Jean will happen in the rumoured three-pack.

Hasbro cheaped out on the "vintage" Ant-Man they made a while ago. Its merely a repainted version of the "Black Ant"/Eric O'Grady character. They didn't even bother to alter the Ant-Man's helmet. So, it would be great to release the true Ant-Man; they don't have to make the helmet removable (Like Toybiz's excellent choice) but they need to at least make him accurate.

Ant-Man is one of my favorite Marvel heroes, and I was so happy to get him in the vintage wave that I forgave them for simply repainting the Black Ant version. Yes, I would absolutely love a new version with a helmet that is more comic accurate. However... the version that we got isn't bad. I think of him as a more stylized version of when Scott Lang took over.

But I would love to see a whole Hank Pym set (yes, another one!) that includes classic Ant-Man, Yellowjacket, Goliath, and Professor Pym from his West Coast Avengers days.

There are a lot of characters who appeared in 2-packs that I wasn't interested in but would definitely want if they were repainted and released individually for $20.00. I'm thinking about Klaw, Arnim Zola, Cyclops with yellow trunks, etc.

You are more forgiving than I. I saw that move as disregard for one of Marvel's founding age characters, and unthinkable laziness.

I did get the Ant-Man large set from a few years ago....never thought I'd see the blue/yellow Goliath suit in action figure form, so very happy to get it, even if he wasn't in giant size form. I too hope we get a Yellowjacket, original Ant-Man, and the red/blue/yellow Goliath suit soon.

I agree that the Ant- Man we got wasn’t bad at all. I can live with the helmet but would take a more accurate one.

Is it just a head swap from the toy biz version? 

Wonder if the blond Peter Parker Head fits in the helmet and on the Ant-Man body?

Given the level of detail and accuracy that we already know they're capable of, even when theyre doing less popular/less known characters, giving him this hand-me-down helmet with a simple paint job, is pure laziness.

Its fairly clear: if Hasbro was selling this repainted emaciated figure alongside a more accurate FA version, the correct version would sell far faster and in greater volume. So why not do it right in the first place?

    • My first pick would be  Quicksilver/Ultron Drone.  Army building for the drones, multiple Pietros to show his super speed. Warriors Three. With either a headswap for Fandral, or just the second one.  Cosmo/Howard the Duck Whiplash/Justin Hammer. Either the armored or racetrack version, I just want a Hammer to do a stopmotion Stark Expo dance. General Ross/Abomination. I feel like there's not enough love for this. Malekith/Kurse Alexander Pierce/Agent Sitwell Kaecilius/Mindless one Zealot multiple headswaps+magic effects Ancient One/Wong Stakar/Aleta/Martinex/Charly-27/Mainframe/Krugar Miek/Fenris (maybe not HUGE, but, you know... a big wolf) Sonny Burch/Uzman/Dave/Kurt Chitauri/Sakaaran/Outrider Male Starforce (Yon-Rogg, Att-Las, Bron-Char alt heads)/Skrull (alt heads)
    • Yep can't forget Bag Man! 😄  Hard to decide what Inhuman I would want to see in the wave, but will keep my fingers crossed in hopes that we'll get a set of em like we are with Alpha Flight.
    • The thing about random is that they already have the arm(s) for him thanks to a BAF not alot of people completed. The Titus Baf.
    • Random would be fun. Nice list. Lists are great for imagination. I'm getting more excited about seeing some Generation X figures. That series was fun early on. I liked the uniforms. I would hope Hasbro could include some accessories to demonstrate their powers. Maybe some extra hands or limbs for Husk. I wish they would do flight stands for someone like M. Would Skin be cool without normal and stretched out hands? Would Mondo have to be a BAF? I remember the 90's toy being somewhat large. What would be the uniform for your ideal New Mutants figures? They had some really dated appearances around Inferno. Were those characters around the entire time?
    • Can't believe I forgot Bag-Man, probably because I would see the Bombastic Bagman as a Spider-Man variant
