I'll second the vote for Netflix Kingpin, although I think the odds of that happening got incredibly small earlier this year.  I'd also like to see Hemingway, but I do not have five picks.

In no particular order:

Mr Hyde

Nimrod

Sentinel

Watcher/Uatu

Blob

 

I take it for granted that Hasbro is not going to do BAFs as tall/big as the old Toybiz version so I'd prefer a rerelease of the Marvel Universe Galactus over an undersized BAF.   Likewise I'd prefer a rerelease of the MU Frost Giant even though i wouldn't mind a Frost Giant BAF.  If I felt like Hasbro could make a Celestial BAF that didn't seem way to small, I could go for that but I feel like they'd be better off just modifying the 19" Galactus/Sentinel figure instead.

Some other suggestions would be Armadllio, Surtur, Super-Adaptoid

I dunno here is 6

1. Surtur

2. Tyrant

3. Shuma-Gorath

4. Mangog

5. Ch'od (even though this is basically Abomination, ah well)

6. Dragon Man

While I'd love a Galactus or Celestials BAF I think the possibility that we ever get one of an acceptable size like the Toybiz days are long gone, lest we be happy with something of the sort that was that terribly disappointing Kree Sentry. Otherwise there are a few BAFs that I see as specific possibly next year

1. Strong Guy (of course) - this is a difficult design so I can see why it's taken so long, but this has got to be in the works. With the assumption that the upcoming 2 pack will be the 90's Havok & Polaris, the only 2 characters left are ol' Guido and Wolfsbane.

2. Nimrod - basically he's X-Men's version of Ultron, this character is constantly evolving so it's hard for them to pin down any particular look, but I believe the 80's JR,Jr version is the most iconic look.

3. Mister Hyde - this guy spans so many different comics and hero's histories it's crazy to think he hasn't been done yet. If the Avengers waves continue even though the main movie arch is over its easy to see him find his place in a comic based wave. Otherwise maybe we'll see him if the rumors of a Thunderbolts based wave become reality

4. Champion of the Universe - yes, he's BAF worthy. He clocks in over 9 feet tall which is as tall as the Hulk but top heavy with smaller legs (no quite as extreme as Strong Guy, though). This would mean that the BAF would be around the size of the inaccurate Sasquatch BAF.

5. Skaar - another one for the Thunderbolts roster. This was done as a single card in the early days of Hasbro ML, but it was bad, like as bad as it gets. Do it again, do it better and use the Gladiator Hulk base. It's halfway there, just tap it in the hole Hasbro.

There are still so many left to do that are just riding the fence between demand and obscurity like Armour, Gentle, Ch'od, Battlestar & Iron Patriot (AIM) and is one that need redo like Red Hulk and Blob (I actually think Mojo & MODOK still hold up). Dragon man is just a matter of time. This list could actually go on forever depending on how deep one wants to go onto Marvel history.

I actually think the Blob still holds up too but I'm missing the hands (the hardest of the BAF parts to find). I wouldn't say no to an updated Blob with a better sculpt and articulation (not a fan of the ball joints and the fingers/hands).

I think Blob, Mojo, and MODOK all hold up pretty well, but with Blob being the lesser of the three. Remakes of any of them wouldn’t be rejected by me, but I’d like to get other characters before those are revisited. 

This is just another BaF want list, but here goes:

Strong Guy

Mister Hyde

Nimrod

Dragon Man

Frost Giant

Special Mention: I’d like a smaller Sentinel BaF based on one of the variations from the X-Men arcade game. Hell, those would also be good candidates for a multi-pack to feature some of the more notable colored variants from the game.

I'd love to see Iron Monger from Iron Man 1, maybe a whiplash mk 2, a new sentinel, a new annihilis and maybe a hulkbuster mark 2

I would definitely love a new sentinel to top the ToyBiz one if that’s possible and I think that old  annihilis still hold up btw the daredevil from that wave is great

If they could do justice size wise I would love new Sentinels and Galactus along with the Celestials...

I don't know how it would work (maybe like the flight gear) but I am intrigued by another idea I had of some huge Phoenix force effect (would maybe also be a good wave to get the much-needed new Jean Grey). 

Can't think of a fifth but going even more experimental wonder how a build a vehicle like the Bluebird would work but size would again be an issue potentially better suited to an individually boxed piece...

Working under the assumption that a 12" - 16" figure is out of the question, I'd vote for:

  • The Awesome Android.  I think he'd be a great choice for a standard Fantastic Four wave.  Such a wave should start re-releasing the Walgreens exclusives in their blue & white Negative Zone uniforms.  Obviously, the Mad Thinker has to be in there as well, and Andy needs a hat, clip-on tie and collar, and briefcase.
  • Strong Guy.  Needs to be in his blue & yellow X-Factor uniform to (hopefully) go with that Havok and Polaris rumor that's floating around.
  • Nimrod.  Another popular choice it seems and another x-cuse to keep those x-waves coming!  One request, give me a broken, sparking stump that I can swap out for when I have Nightcrawler teleporting the bastard's arm off!
  • The Super Adaptoid.  A giant green goofball robot made up of elements from the classic Avengers roster?  Heck yes.
  • Dreadnought.  My Mandroids need some competition!  But for the love of The Vishanti please include some army-builder figures in the wave, because if these bad boys are done well, I'm going to need at least three!

There's of course lots more that it hurts to leave off the list, most notably Box, Holocaust, Stegron, The Supreme Intelligence, and Zzzax!

    • Not a bad assortment, especially for a movie series. Not great, but not bad. Pretty sure my opinion will improve once we see pix.
    • I scored a blink today for 6$ :D im stoked
    • Ahhh that suuucks! I was going to say, when you cancel your old card, order a new card at the same time, and the purchase should automatically transfer to your new card. That's what happened with me when I lost a credit card and went to cancel it. I was afraid that all the things still outstanding that were tied to my old card would be lost. For example, I was still waiting for a refund to finish processing for an item I had returned. But all those leftover things were transferred to my new card so I didn't lose anything (despite not physically receiving my new card for several days). But it sounds like you had bad timing where Amazon attempted to charge it in the brief window in between your two cards. That sucks. It sounds like you're willing to pay a little bit more for the set since you offered to cover the shipping and also provide bonus stuff. If that's the case, why not just pay a bit more for the scalper prices on ebay? I see some going for an extra $40. That's not ideal, but I'll bet the prices will come down a bit if you wait some more as well. This boxset is brand new so the prices are high now and if you wait until it's more prevalent in the wild, it should come down. Or maybe even Amazon will change course and (re)allow shipping to the UK again after a while. Edit: Now I see that you already did address Ebay as an option. I would still say wait until the prices come down. Or maybe you'll find it for sale locally or on another website that will ship to UK.
    • yes, toy fair at the very earliest. Hell we haven't even gotten a trailer released to the public.
