Figures we'd love to see (but might never)!

Recommended Posts

Lots of talk about certain figures being "overdone" and I get that; just how many Spider-Man, Wolverine, Iron Man, Deadpool variants do we really need? Well the answer is, if youre a fan of these guys, there's NEVER too many. But then what about those characters that haven't been done yet, and may never GET done? Here's hoping we will see them soon. I never thought we'd get Sunfire....but we did and he's fantastic. So, my list of those elusive "maybe's". What do you think the odds are on these guys ever being made?

Redwolf

Mantis (use same technique they did for Mr. Sinister's fringe cape for her skirt- wont impede movement)

Moon Dragon

Remaining (original) Guardians of the Galaxy

Doc Samson (both og outfit and red leather from the 80s)

Wonder Man (og green and red, safari jacket and translucent ion form)

Invisible Woman (totally translucent)

Human Torch (smaller buck, same color all over- none of this yellow head bs)

Binary

Thunderbird

Actually out of all these, Thunderbird probably has a better than likely chance of being made....not sure we'd see him before Banshee, but Hasbro is clearly X-Men crazy and has shown much love to the team. Id be surprised if we don't see Thunderbird before the end of 2020 (and in 3 months it'll BE 2020)!

I'm a pretty big Wolverine fan, but there are precious few costumes of his I'd have any sort of excitement left about owning. 🙂 Enough's enough.

Otherwise, the top of my dream list looks like this:

  • Magik (original New Mutants)
  • Psylocke (outback armour)
  • Spiral
  • Chamber
  • Destiny
  • Karma (original New Mutants)
  • Dust
  • Senyaka
  • Armor
  • Bishop (Uncanny X-Force)

Some, I'll probably never get (Bishop, I'm looking at you), but I'm pretty hopeful about a lot of them. It's certainly a good time to like X-Men toys.

For the record, I had no idea anyone had posted a thread similar to mine, although it does make sense that someone would've thought along the same lines.

I think we all speculate what figure will make it, why this one will, why that one wont, how we wish to see this one and cant figure out why they keeping making "that" one.

Its also interesting to hear fans try to "explain" just exactly why this or that mold will never be made, but then we see Hasbro put out that exact thing. "They'll never complete this group" is something you hear, then "they HAVE to complete this group, 'cause they already did the leader" and yet the group never gets done. Frankly I don't think we can really know what these designers are thinking. After all they put out a comic-book accurate Cap Falcon...and then left off the wings. WTF. They recently gave us Quicksilver, and although for over 50 years his hair has always been white, they made the figure granite grey. Mysterio, with his one-of-a-kind gloves, is done comic perfect, just like Omega Red. So go figure.

No pun intended! :D

Hellion

Surge

Agree...I think of your list, these guys have a better chance of appearing at some point. Especially Nefaria and Nova. And I wouldn't be surprised if Hasbro did a "golden age/first appearance/Invaders" line or box set which included Baron Blood.

    • 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!
