Who Wants a ML Vintage Wave Storm?!

Recommended Posts

Okay, anyone else tired of all those "contests" all over the internet that have oddly simplistic, non specific, purposely vague rules that never have a winner announced and no one knows anyone who's won or even knows anyone who knows anyone who's won? Well this ain't one of those.

Here she is. Happened on a freshly stocked display at my local Best Buy when I saw this beauty. I picked an extra one up for myself and remembered how many of my fellow compatriots have had trouble locating her and picked up another for this give away. I must confess that it was a hard internal battle not to pick up a the last one for my own selfish reasons, but the better half took hold of me and I decided to leave it for someone less fortunate. But this baby is ready for the taking.

There's actually rules to this contest. Simple rules, yes, but at least it's some kind of guidelines, and I will actually be announcing the winner and asking he or she to verify publicly that the prize was recieved. I will provide free shipping for any winner within the continental United States, but I would ask that any international winners provide their own shipping costs and, more specifically, send their own shipping label. Sorry bout that, but needless to say, I've been bitten I the ayce a few times. I do owe someone from several years ago a 3.75" Horn Masked Iron Man, but it has since gone up in a house fire and if you're that person please contact me via PM and I'll see what I can do to get that squared away.

Now for the contest. As many of you know there are a hand full of conventions coming in the forthcoming October/November months and ML is supposed to have some more reveals during them. All you need to do is list 10 characters that you predict will be revealed and post them on this thread and the person with the most correct picks will win. Being specific about a version or era of the character would mean the difference between winning or losing. A example would be if AOA Rogue is revealed, but one person picked "Rogue" and one person picked "AOA Rogue", then both would technically be right, but the person that was more specific would own the tie-breaker. I will announce a winner and send out the package 2 weeks before Christmas so hopefully you will get your package before Santa visits. This got some pretty good response in the past and if w20190924_043227.thumb.jpg.183a3ba0c3cc0754c87ab5133775af77.jpge get enough action going I might have a few more treasures I my chest if he willing to part with. And if not, well if be all to happy to keep this little lady to myself.

 

UPDATE: the contest closes on Dec. 7 2019 and of will announce the winner the following Monday so the package will ship at least 2 full weeks before Christmas. Also in the case of multiple submissions I will accept only the first one, but feel free to change or edit that one till the first set of reveals rolls out.

I'm seriously thinking about it. 

What date are you closing this contest on? I think you should add a date and limit the guessing to one per person, just so, you know, no one tries to abuse the system.

I have feelings about these guys

Stepford Cuckoos (we know this is coming)
MCU Taskmaster
MCU Red Gauardian
MCU Black Widow (Natasha, they ain't gonna spoil belova for us yet, since the movie is gonna show us whats up with her story)
MCU Thena (anglina jolie ..right)
MCU Ikaris
Mr. Negative (I feel it in the air he's coming, it seems evident, with all the PS4 figures)
Warpath (for some reason I feel we are getting him first in X-Force Attire, since the X-Force kick is on full movement)
AOA Rogue (AOA is coming she needs to be there)
AOA Apocalypse (see above explanation)

also I don't care to win this figure, if I did I also would rather it goes to someone who needs her.

Logan goes by Weapon X in the Age of Apocalypse. There was an entirely unrelated character in that setting, one of Apocalypse's hounds, who went by Wolverine. That's probably not what they meant, but if that super obscure character gets a toy, they should probably get credit for it.

Yeah totally , but I presumed he probably ment Weapon X, as in Logan, I may have been wrong, I honestly totally wouldn't have remembered about that Mutant Hunting hound character Wolverine unless you brought it up, good attention to detail though maybe he did mean that character

Same time as Morph and X-Man, but pictures of him didn't seem to be as widely circulated. It's totally reasonable to have missed him. You should double-down, though, and maintain that the other Wolverine is gonna show up in upcoming reveals. 🙂 His 616 counterpart had a toy in the 5" Toy Biz line, I think. Crule, right?

I wasn't a huge fan of the AOA storyline (I'm still not, really) but did they actually establish that Crule and Wolverine (Earth-295) were analogs? That's crazy, I never even put that together though they do look very similar. Then again, I've never read the story all the way through. Just something about it never really appealed all that much to me.

As far as Crule goes, that figure was a diamond in the rough in the old Toybiz 5" line. I'd live to see him and Gideon redone in 6" form and maybe some other Externals like Selena and Saul. Hey, you could get double use outta that mold if they ever get around to doing Mandarin. Maybe in the Vintage waves or just as a pleasant surprise in an X-Force wave.

I can't swear to it, but I always thought so, and it looks like several wikis came to the same conclusion. I always really liked the Crule toy too. The sculpt was spot-on. Maybe he'll show up in the Strong Guy wave.

Well, since were on the subject of who, what and when, I guess I'll throw my guesses into the mix. If I win I'll award it to the next closest.

1. Lady Deathstrike

2. Pyro

3 Maverick

4. AOA Rogue (more of a personal hope)

5. AOA Sabretooth

6. Falcon (classic)

7. Winter Soldier (comic)

8. US Agent (redo)

9. Speedball (I just got a feeling we're about to see more New Warriors)

10. Nimrod (don't know where he'll fall or what wave would be attached to it)

    • 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.
