Can We Get a Full Thor Wave

Recommended Posts

Hasbro has discussed doing a possible full marvel legends Iron Man wave in the future, but is it possible to get a full Thor movie wave so that we can get new or better versions of characters from Thor? Which characters have not been done that you would like to see? I would want Heimdall in his armor, Odin, Frigga, and a Frost Giant.

I think there's enough characters left (or that I'd like) to get maybe 2 waves:

Odin
Volstagg
Thor (Helmet with wings)
Destroyer
Heimdall in Armor
Jane Foster
Laufey BAF

Hogun (Ragnarok)
Fandral (Dark World)
Malekith
Frigga
Kurse
Thor (Ragnarok)
Surtur BAF

Though I think it's more likely that we get mixed MCU/Comic waves and most of these (if any) in packs. Like "Warriors Three and the Lady Sif" pack or something. Probably con-exclusives... unless we were back in the glory days of ToyBiz with their beautiful multipacks ❤️

They've certainly got the ammo if they've got the will.

  • Thor  In light of the 80th anniversary Thor figure just released, I think they should go a little sideways from that for their wave anchor.  I'd like to see the classic armored version from ca. 1986 with interchangeable masked and unmasked heads.  Give him an ML-scaled whirling hammer like what that Select version came with and baby, you got yer next must-have figure in the line!
  • Balder  He's Braver than you.
  • Thunderstrike  He will need an interchangeable head with do-rag and sunglasses.
  • Zarrko, the Tomorrow Man  Yo, Dr. Manhattan, I'm really happy for you and Imma let you finish, but Zarrko the Tomorrow Man has one of the best comic book names of all time!
  • The Wrecker  The Wrecking Crew is in serious need of a re-do.  Those older ones are both expensive and just not very good.  Start at the start with ol' Dirk.
  • Lorelei  For the love of Odin, please put her on the cuvier Ms. Marvel/Rogue buck!
  • Skurge, the Executioner  I've been jonesing for this guy forever.  How can you release an Enchantress and not do the Executioner!?  How!!?  Think of the children!!
  • Kurse  Speaking of the children, make legit-threat-turned-protector-of-Asgard's-crumb-snatchers the build-a-figure.

I know, I know...The Warrior Three.  I want them as much as anyone, but I'd hate to see Volstagg be too small or take up a build-a-figure slot.  Do a really cool 3-pack and watch fandom trip over themselves to pre-order it.

Edit: I just realized I misread the thread topic and that the call was for MCU Thor.  Oops.  Well, damnit, I want a comic wave anyway.

You just brought them up and I literally tripped. So you're probably right.

I'll take either comic Thor characters or mcu Thor characters (especialy ones that are reasonable stand-ins for their comic equivalents, as i would characterize Hela and Skurge).  He's one of my favorite marvel characters, seems to be becoming more and more popular among mcu fans, and most of his supporting cast all wear pretty toyetic outfits. 

I'm very glad we're getting an heimdall figure (altho i would prefer golden armor) and another Valkyrie figure (altho the 2=pack version is pretty nice , imo).  In terms of movie characters I would say Odin is top priority since he appeared in all 3 Thor movies, followed by Frigga who has also had 3 mcu appearances.

There’s def great potential for wave and likely we gonna get two waves with Thor Love and thunder movie, I personally do hope that Sif will get reissue.

I think Sif does deserve a reissue, maybe with a ponytail like in Thor1 so we could cover both movies (or allow her head to move better).

If we're talking comic (since obvs we'll get movie figures for love and Thunder) I'd dig his current Russell Dauterman look.

Oh by the Gods of Plastic, we need an all Thor wave! Nothing save for an all-Alpha Flight wave or all-Galactus Herald wave would make me happier!

Actually, we'd need two all Thor waves, because along with everyone's excellent choices thus far, I would add:

Leir...the Celtic God of Lightning, from that great story in Thor #386

Forgotten One in Space Armor, from the Celestial/ Eternal story arc in Thor #s 283-293, specifically issue #288! That was such a glorious hard hitting, heavyweight slug-fest that it should be immortalized in plastic!

Quicksand!  

Beta Ray Bill! A new classic version to be precise!

Karnilla, Queen of the Norns!

Even if there isn’t a full Thor wave, there are a few crucial Thor related gaps that could be filled as part of other waves:

- Thor from “The Avengers” (a proper MCU version of this look, not just a new head on the original MCU Thor body)

-  Comic Skurge 

-  SDCC Hela rerelease 

-  “Endgame” Thor from the final battle

-  Modern Thor (as pictured above) with alternate head and left arm to do a proper “God of Thunder” costume from the Marvel NOW era

-  Comic Warriors 3 as an Amazon set 

-  Comic Balder 

-  Comic Heimdall

i was really let down we didn't get that endgame thor shown off at comicon

Huh? Fat/Bro/Lebowski Thor in the bathrobe? Because, we *are* getting that one as the BaF in the third Endgame wave. 

Was there another Thor I somehow missed?

A Thor wave would be cool and easy to do, though I would prefer a comic wave, given that a lot of Thor's supporting cast hardly did anything in the MCU

Definitely would be all in for a comic based wave.  There's a lot that needs to be done there.  But if they could somehow make a 2 wave set up, even one that's only comic and one that's only MCU, with a build a figure Surtur, and I'm talking big, Galactus/Sentinel/Fin Fang Foom size BAF, I'd buy all 12 or 14 figures to make it happen.

Seeing that we are getting a fourth Thor movie we are definitely getting at least 2 mixed waves of Thor. If it's successful maybe they will do another all MCU wave. Hasbro seems to be following that pattern.

I'd love to see a set with a Frost Giant BAF that included Fandral, Hogun, Volstagg, Thunderstrike and Kurse. The final figure would probably have to be a regular Thor to make it work, although I'd prefer it be someone they haven't already made.... maybe even sneak a cosmic character in there like Starfox!

Truth be told, I would only get comic based figs based on Thor & BRB as while the rest of his friends/allies are cool such as Lady Sif, Balder, the warriors 3 & Heimdal, Thor is my main favorite Asgardian. Hasbro has to give us a classic BRB based on this statue! A Thunderstrike Thor aka Eric Masterson version & either include a classic Bearded head sculpt with another figure in the wave or make a classic Bearded Thor with alternate helmetless head sculpt & loose Thor helmet for him to hold. Classic comic based figures of Ulik, Malekith  & classic Loki have been made & only a comic based Kurse needs to be made as his other enemies are the Frost Giants & Surter the fire demon, but I highly doubt we'll get 16' versions of them. Now as far as earth based Thor villians are concerned, then we need  the entire Classic comic based Wrecking crew re-done on the new Herc/Thor bucks as Hasbro really phoned it in by using the outta scale & outdated 2010 Warpath buck for them & made em all Hulk sized!  Hulk sized T-ball= no Bueno!  A boxset with Bearded Thor & proper scale classic Wrecking crew would sell like hotcakes!  We need more classic Zemo led Masters of evil as well.

Yeah that seems likely

    • 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.
