She's a walking stereotype, hence why she isn't popular with Irish comic fans who know about her

No doubt. Still, from the smack talking black guy with a heart of gold, the angry black woman, the super tech-savvy kung-fu master Asian, to the clueless hillbilly yokel, comics are a medium of stereotypes. It's not a perfect situation, but until writers start learning how to write again, that's the Heck we live in.

Plus we can all think of a lot worse stereotypes.

Probably, it would help if writers actually researched the locations or better yet get people who live there to write about that country's characters

Not your fault, she's a living stereotype. Also to be honest I always hated the costume.

I remember back in the day, I believe it was Innovation who published a Quantum Leap comic, and they brought in different writers for each issue who would somehow be associated with whoever Sam leaped into: a gay writer to do an issue about the Stonewall riot, a female writer to do an issue about rape, etc. Of course that was mostly just a marketing ploy, and i don't see how that could be in any way doable on a wide scale.

Better to just go the old-fashioned route and have writers research what they're writing about.

Captain Britain did extremely well when he was written by British writers and artists and Marvel are trying to avoid the stereotypes with their ne Future Fight characters by again getting people from the actual countries to write them.

No problems. You're right. Shamrock is a visually interesting character. Bringing her up also opened the door to explore another interesting aspect of the character. Thanks for that.

That being said, I'm sure one of the mods is likely to turn up soon and roust us for getting off-topic.

Why Hasbro hasn't done the original White Tiger/Hector Ayala yet is beyond me. Sunfire Buck plus new gloves, lower legs & headsculpt & done! Put him in next Spidey related wave or in the Shang Chi movie wave!

So far I'm happy with my custom but I'll be super excited they make an official Marvel Legend of Hector Ayala. I agree that a Spider-Man wave would be the ideal place for him unless they put him in a 2-pack with Jack of Hearts.

Honestly all this talk of a Hector White Tiger, I'd be way more interested in seeing a White Wolf

I'm fine with the Ava Ayala White Tiger we already got,

yeah, My thoughts exactly, but yet it's also a new character rather then being another white tiger, since i was content with ayala, and the repaint for white wolf would be dumb simple , vintage black panther painted white, and a few black accents and add a cape

OK, now I'm just gonna go with Rachel Cole-Alves. She's fairly new, not enough appearances, will require a lot of new sculpting (even though they don't seem to care as much these days), and not many waves she could be placed in.

That just makes her more perfect. I don't think I've seen a series yet that didn't shoe-horn in at least one random, out-of-left-field character as filler.

Maybe you thought Rock Python was part of some grand design?

She could be done, that or Lynn Michaels. Either could be put into a Spider-man wave since that's where the street heroes end up

Okay, I did blank on his Serpent Society link, but my point still stands. There was absolutely nothing about Rock that would put him in that particular series.

Id love to see the original Guardians of the Galaxy from the 70s I'd also love to see them do a fantastic Medusa figure either with interchangeable heads or hair extensions of some kind

Heck yeah. Definitely want an ol' 6" classic Yondu at least. I like Vance Astro, but something about the ML I just never really liked about it. And his face reminds me of Robin Williams.

Well we got Major Victory, so it is possible Hasbro will start doing the other members in time

They could really do Medusa with Barbie-esque hair. That would be the perfect way to do her. it's not like they don't already do the FoD dolls. And if they really wanted to step it up, they could use bendy wire hair that was a thing in the 90's,

 

Y'all think we'll ever get a ZZzax? Or Azazel?

ZZzax would be an interesting BAF

    • 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.
