Really dont agree with the list Shartimus Prime read out  . Whats really needed is a first time figure of  Mr. Hyde ,  Red Armored Dracula Lord of the Vampires , Mephisto , Rom Space Knight ,  The Molecule Man , Blackout , Nightmare , New and improved articulation , detail and body molds of : Daken , Banshee , The Sentry , Lady Deathstryke ,  Red Hulk , Hyperion , All Father Odin , Terrax the Tamer  , Superior Spiderman,  comic version of The Black Order , Warpath , Classic Comic version of Captain Marvel (male version)

Yes, i agree w/you that their are great characters that have never been made& I  like some of your choices especially Mr.Hyde, Red Armour Drac,Rom,Blackout, Nightmare and we also need some alternate outfits of HERCULEEEEEES!!!!! (Green Chest Strap,an updated classic look and green army fatigues he wore in Avengers Mansion Siege story-line!)

I'm hoping for a GS X-MEN SET or at least STORM, BANSHEE & THUNDERBIRD for the 45 th ANNIVERSARY of the comic next year! 

Classic HAVOK,Polaris , Angel and Marvel Girl as well.  It would be a great way to prerelease the uber hard to find classic CYCLOPS as well from the Dark Phoenix two pack.

That's an awful lot of Hercules.  He just got a great modern version...I think we can chill a bit before we get another, if we get some more "new" characters first.  Hyde and Nightmare are excellent ideas.  I know Dracula is public domain but I'm curious as to how they'd package him.  "Marvel's Dracula" maybe?  "Marvel's Lord of the Vampires?"  Either way I think he's more likely to show up a few years from now when the new Blade movie hits.

Rom is...interesting.  Hasbro owns him as a character now.  Marvel once had the license for Rom from Remco (I think?  Tyco?  One of those old toy companies that got bought out) who was the original creator of Rom, but eventually lost it.  So to make an actual "Marvel Legends" Rom they would have to license Rom back to Marvel and then make a Rom figure.  Or get special permission from Marvel to be able to use their trade dressing on the packaging despite Rom not being a Marvel character (I think?).  Either way it'd kind of be up to Marvel to play ball.  Basically what I'm saying is there's almost no chance of a mass-retail release for Rom in the Marvel Legends line.

Conversely they could totally make a 6" Rom figure (and Dire Wraith) in Marvel Legends style but not in Marvel Legends packaging.  Probably more likely, and almost certainly something that would be some type of exclusive (like the 3.75" Rom and Dire Wraith from a couple or three years back).

 

Unless they get around to making those Hasbro movies/The Hasbroverse a reality.

If they do something Marvel related for Haslab I dont want to see a vehicle. A Black Bird or Quinjet is to limited in what you can do with it. You can stick some figure inside them but they aren't really good for displaying figures on because they are inside. And you can't even play with it much cause its so big.

If they do Haslab it should be a figure like Galactus, or Sentinel or Celestial. Something along those lines.

I'd still love a Milano for my GotG. I have a friend who does custom SW ships, in 6" scale, I'm asking him if he can pull it off. If he does, I'll be sure to post it!

Yeah I say it all the time; I definitely want to see either Galactus or Foom be made in the Haslab. I personally don't give 2 turds about any vehicles. Now make them massive Marvel Legends!

Foom is another one worth of Haslab consideration or the Watcher

Master Mold!  That would probably be about my #1 "Big figure" want.  I'm not unhappy with my Toy Biz Galactus or Hasbro Fin Fang Foom, but if they made larger versions I'd certainly consider them.

 

Also instant "buys" for me:  Surtur (comics), and/or Ymir.

If they do a Sentinel I think it should def be Master Mold and they should give it a detachable head.

    • If we got one or two all MCU Legends waves for the Disney+ shows including Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Wandavision, Loki, What If...?, and Hawkeye then what 6-7 figures would you want in the wave and who would be the BAF? Maybe even two waves if you want. For me it would be. Wave One: 1. Falcon 2. Bucky 3. U.S. Agent 4. Baron Zemo 5.  Sharon Carter 6. Lady Loki/ Enchantress (Whoever Sophia Di Martino is playing) BAF: Maybe Red Hulk but I doubt it (The Thunderbolts may be set up in Falcon and thet Winter Soldier, but I doubt that we would actually see Red Hulk) Wave Two: 1. Agatha Harkness (Or the Grim Reaper or whoever the villain of the series is) 2. Darcy/Jimmy Woo/ Monica Rambeau/ Whoever Kathryn Hahn is playing which might actually be Agatha Harkness 3. The Watcher 4. Captain Carter 5.  Zombie Cap 6. Kate Bishop (Should come with Lucky the Pizza dog who was teased in recent concept art) BAF: Maybe Steve Rogers' Iron Man amour from What If...?    
    • Iceman was awesome looking in AoA. I like when they can pull of a weird sized figure. Giant spiked shoulders and fists. Huge, ice-slide body. Could be cool.
    • Didn't he have some giant sized appearances in his battle with Magneto in Amazing X-Men? I was actually thinking of the sentinels as a BAF the other day. They would indeed be cool. Could Hasbro do something that big anymore? The TB one was huge, and Fin Fang Foom was huge. How expensive would that line have to be to accommodate the cost of so much plastic. Maybe they choose all small characters: Lava-lamp Shadow King with a Sentinel leg. Tiny Sugarman a la X-Men Omega with the torso....
    • Maybe there's something to it, maybe not, but you can make the argument that she is showing a lot of skin, but anyone who has (or has even seen) the figure knows she has been very obviously "uncurved" on one of the character's most prominent "assets". Not being a "perv" but if they'd had somehow combined the accuracy of the Puck wave figure and the quality of this figure, it woulda been just that much better. It's a great figure with an amazing head sculpt but things like this and also the abandonment of the Moonstone mold and the lack of a very classic character such as Tigra (guarantee, she will get the bodysuit treatment) at least give the impression that there is an effort to tone down the female figures. There is no proof, nobody's offered an official statement, and any time on of the creative team has been cornered with the question they've been able to masterfully sidestep the issue. I'm sure someone's ready to blast out with the Angela figure and that's a great argument, but that was one great effort from a few years ago and it's been downhill ever since.
    • I already have the classic versions of the FF, with that I don't really need any new versions of the original 4. (unless they update Human Torch on the Sunfire mold. Wave 3: 1. The Watcher W/FLIGHT STAND (Um hello, Been waiting on this) 2. Classic Ronan 3. Champion 4. Psycho Man 5. Future Foundation Doom 6. Molecule Man    BAF: Dragon Man, Rawr! Possible substitutes: Alternate BAF: Classic BLASTAAR or Annihilus Baghead Spider-man, FF She-hulk (Obviously), Alternate-Attachments for Mr. Fantastic, Firelord, Kang, Mole-man, FF Wolverine.
