Eternals movie wave BAF needs to be...

Recommended Posts

a long overdue in scale classic comic Thanos! Let's face it, hardly anyone outside of hard core comic collectors know who these guys are but everyone knows who Thanos is. He is a deviant, an offshoot of the Eternals, basically a mutant. I'd say make 4 of the figures MCU based  & then have classic comic versions of Starfox & Sersi (both long overdo & wanted 80s Avengers) with classic comic Thanos as the BAF. That alone will sell the entire wave imo. Just don't make Thanos Hulk sized, he's 6'7 & 900lbs of thick muscular mass. He should be no bigger than the 2 pack Colossus but heavily muscled/thick.

I have to say..............No. The Eternals are very different from the ones Thanos came from. One was a group living on Earth and the ones Thanos comes from is from Titan. They maybe related in some way but not the same group. 

If anything the Eternal Baf will be Gilgamesh.

Then I hope it's this version. And we still need a classic comic version of Thanos regardless. I would hope he's done in a future Avengers  related wave.Thor_vs_Gigamesh_2.png

If comic Thanos is in the wave, he doesn't need to be the BAF. He can be the two-per-box with no BAF part. Heck give him two heads, multiple hands.

Asides from a comic based Starfox, there is really no other Eternal character I would be buying from an Eternals wave & a Unimind as the BAF would clinch that for me. I still think a comic based Thanos BAF would help sell an Eternals wave better than any other BAF they can think of. Thanos may not be an Earth born Eternal but he still comes from that race.

I know where you're coming from... but I highly doubt they'll release a 4th Thanos as a BAF.  I don't know if there truly would be a market for a classic, non height-enhanced, comicbook Thanos that you'd like, at least not as a BaF, and not for a 3rd year in a row.

A comic book based classic Thanos has been asked for by Thanos fans since the TB days. Closest we got was the huge outta scale MS version. I believe that if Hasbro puts out the comic based version at a correct scale, both comic & MCU fans will eat it up. Much more than they would a character such as Unimind that anyone not an avid comic book reader, would not know who the heck that is. I love the Kree but would not be too keen to own a BAF of the Supreme intelligence when a 16' Kree Sentry BAF would be much better & preferred, especially when you can army build it.

I hope you're right so you can get what you want. I personally wouldn't build it, as an MCU fan. Neither would I build a 16" Kree Sentry... specially since I wouldn't be able to financially army build it. But let's hope we all get what we're seeking eventually 🙂

Hasbro loves them some Thanos so it is a good possibility. The Eternals is such a left field choice for Marvel Studios but after getting hits out of the Guardians and Ant-Man I am prepared to show them a little faith.

My hope is to get comic versions of the few Eternals characters that have joined the Avengers.  Might be my only shot for comic versions of Starfox, Sersi and Gilgamesh (with the cow helmet circa Avengers #300, so dumb yet endearing) 

Don't really care for the Eternals as a whole, but the possibilities of potential characters is intriguing

I have faith in them, I just know next to nothing about the eternals

I have a strong feeling that the Eternals wave will be all MCU, simply because the cast is so expansive on this one.

No idea on the BAF.  Maybe Gilgamesh depending on how he's portrayed, or a drastically underscaled Celestial of some kind.

there was no bigger cast that Avengers Infinity War and Endgame and the first two waves were split. only the third will be all MCU. Plus i have a hunch they wont go all in on an unproven franchise yet. I could be wrong.....

Maybe, but when I look at the most-likely characters to get included in an Eternals wave (because I DON'T think they'd dip into the Titan Eternals who have always been more part of Marvel's "cosmic" franchise than of the "Earthbound Eternals" segment) I see a bunch of characters who are way less popular/obscure than anything in the MCU.  I'm not even sure which A-lister you could reasonably slot into an Eternals wave the way they had say, Cosmic Iron-Man in the first Guardians wave, or Modern Iron Man in the first Black Panther one.  They're so removed from the rest of the Marvel Universe that it's tricky even finding the tenuous "We'll put Black Bolt, Namor, and Iron Man in the Black Panther wave because they're all Illuminati!" links.  They could do another comic Black Knight but given how the last one wasn't the hottest of sellers....(And we'll likely get a MCU version if he suits up in the movie).  They don't often do both comic and MCU versions of the same characters in the same wave, either, especially if their costumes are very similar.  So for instance the idea of getting both a comic and MCU Sersi seems somewhat unlikely...though I wouldn't count out the possibility of a comic-based Eternals set for SDCC or something.

This Eternals wave, if all MCU will be an easy pass for me then. Even Hasbro knows that an all MCU wave line will not be a huge seller. You have to mix it up with comic based characters as well. Like I said, give us a comic based classic Thanos & it will sell more than if the BAF is MCU based & making the BAF a normal sized figure is not gonna sell out the entire wave imo.

 

Classic 1st app Starfox, comic 90s Sersi & BAF comic Thanos will be essential imo. We get 2 more Avengers to round out 80s & 90s Avengers lineups & us Thanos fans finally get a classic comics based Thanos after nothing but umpteenth MCU Thanos's & a modern costume Thanos.

I wouldn't be surprised if they went the mantis/okoye route and made either Sersi or Thena the BAF.

That would be awful giving the leading ladies the short end of the stick.

It's unclear whether Sersi is a lead or not.  She should be, but it could also be that they introduce her here as a supporting character, but she's the one that ends up interacting with the rest of the MCU more moving forward (especially if she's attached to Dane Whitman, romantically or otherwise). 

 

I get the impression they're not even introducing the Deviants in all this.  Which is gonna be a little weird, having the Eternals without their nemeses.  Though I guess that'd be in keeping with the Neil Gaiman series that this will almost certainly be cribbing heavily from.

 

Anyway, I'd bet that Thena gets a figure, straight up.  All the indications I've seen are that she and Ikaris are effectively the "leads" for this.  Not sure about Sersi.  But honestly they're probably going to end up a couple short on the "main" Eternals in the toy line, just like they always do.

Would a classic, comic Odin baf be a good idea?

Well Sersi still is one of the leading Eternals. Of course we will have to wait and see.  

Also while it's strange that there is no mention of the Deviants,  there is also no mention of Zuras.

    • Humanity aspires to prolong life expectancy, increasing its quality. Life expectancy is the expected (in the statistical sense) number of years of life remaining at a given age. In other words, it is the average number of years that a person or animal can expect to live. If in 1900 life expectancy was 47 years of age, it has increased from 45 to 63 years from the1950’s (Life Expectancy Tables n.d.). Thus, life expectancy is constantly increasing. This fact should make people happy. One might observe not only an increase in the proportion of the older population in the age structure of society and a gradual increase of life expectancy, but also a process called by scientists as “the rejuvenation of the population”. The population of developed countries, thanks to the development of medicine, keeps their health strong and a youthful appearance longer. It influences different processes, which have psychological, cultural, and social characters. Moreover, one should not forget that the real goal of scientists-gerontologists and all who are involved in overcoming aging is not only to increase life expectancy, but also to prolong health and youth. Increased life expectancy is a result of various factors. There are the development of medicine and health care, improving the quality of nutrition and living conditions, the development of technologies that help conserve energy and strength among them. A spread of set of cosmetic procedures of maintaining a good appearance such as plastic surgery, hardware and “pharmaceutical” cosmetology also makes a great contribution to the “rejuvenation” of the population. There is a trend in medicine called “anti-aging”. Moreover, many diseases and conditions commonly associated with aging have become “older”. Hormone replacement therapy also contributes to the health and activity of women. Such a “rejuvenation” of the population often gives a new emphasis to very different processes. However, the increase in the average age of the population has far-reaching implications as well as a serious impact on the planning and implementation of social policy generally. Nonetheless the UN is concerned because for the first time in history, by 2050 there will be more senior citizens over 60 years of age than 15 year old children. Current paper discusses why it happens and what problems life expectancy might cause for modern society. The Problems for Modern Society Caused by Increased Life Expectancy · Social problems. Some researchers believe that there is a problem of coexistence of generations due to the increase in life expectancy. Today, all the infrastructure elements of life are focused on creating the conditions for a full life of one generation, while at least two generations have the demand for it. Life expectancy increases, causing not only a joy a for person’s friends and relatives, but also new problems both for the state, and for all those who in one way or another are affected by the increase in financial expenses due to an increase in the duration of life of the retired. There are public and private pension funds, health authorities and social security. The need to pay more pensions depends on the amount of taxes that the young working population will pay. The increase in pension payments will require increased taxation so the state could pay all the pensions. The increase in the number of people who are over 60 will require an increase in the quantity and quality of medical care and service. In turn, it will require a large amount of additional financial costs. They will be required not only to keep constant supply and improving the level of medicines and medical equipment, but also to attract a growing number of health care workers. Moreover, much more old people’s homes and other care units must be built in order to provide all for seniors. · Economic problems. Due to life expectancy, a large number of people over 60 will continue working in factories and companies. Despite the improvement of the quality of their physical and mental health, they will still give way to the younger generation in power energy, speed of reaction and endurance. As a consequence, countries, which will be dominated by older workers, will be less competitive in the global market. Their level of economic development and progress will be lower than in those countries where the workers are young people. Moreover, equally important problem is the fact that increasing numbers of older people can cause them to compete with the younger generation in the workplace. As a result, the younger generation might perceive people over 60 rather negatively. Young people might begin to consider the elderly as those who deprive them of work. Mankind has always sought to increase life expectancy. Recent advances of various kinds of sciences, including medicine, allow people to count on a significant increase in life expectancy. Every day scientists create new kinds of drugs, antibiotics and vaccines that not only fight various diseases, but also prevent their occurrence successfully. In addition, the improvement of living conditions, nutrition and other factors that are characteristic of developed countries contributes to life expectancy. It seems that the increase in life expectancy solves many problems and allows people around the world to have a long and high qualitative life, constantly opening up new opportunities for self-development. Nevertheless, life expectancy may cause some problems for modern society. There is the need for large amounts of additional finance for social sector (pensions and health care among them. In addition, no less important can become an economic problem since a large number of older workers might cause economic decline.

    • Kang, classic Ultron, Annihilus,  Blastaar,  Super Skrull, Viper/ Madame Hydra. All these were in some previous incarnation during Toybiz/early Hasbro ML time. They need to be updated; I don't include Dr Doom because we all know he's coming. Couldn't resist putting these on: Super Adaptoid,  Count Nefaria,  Sebastain Shaw, Bushmaster. Far as I know they didn't make ML before (did Count N make Marvel Universe?) but it goes to show, Hasbro's got a lot of figures to draw from that haven't ever been seen.  
    • Would definitely get: 1. Mr Fantastic ("negative" uniform, stretch effect arms and legs if poss) 2. Thing ("negative" trunks, 2 fists, 2 open hands, one head mouth open) 3. Invisible Woman - clear variant 4. Human Torch- all red, translucent, correct body buck 5. Sub-Mariner - 70s "water wings" navy/black outfit 7. Super Skrull 8.  Annihilus BAF  
    • YES. None of that yellow head nonsense. Toss in some good flame effects and youre golden!
    • Great job! That alt head looks more like the Emma Frost we all know and love!
