Hey @Benn, thanks a million for making the list. Great work. You got me inspired to find a pic of each team member in their respective uniforms and make it visual. 🤪

What do you think, if Hasbro would to complete all the teams, how many years would it take?

That's a good call. He didn't wear the classic red and purple, but he wore a purple outfit; all purple with a big white 'M' on his chest, and no helmet. Not one of my favourite looks, but certainly a part of New Mutants history!

I tolerate a lot of improbable, frankly impossible things from the comic book world. But I gotta draw the line somewhere.

I mean, seriously....what were they thinking....

Really? The Hellfire Club is cool, but the big M is not?

I get it. But I think it looks kind of cool anyway....

Came back to this thread because I got to thinking about the Morlocks. I've always had a fondness for this undervalued group of social outcasts. I'm sure the fact that they purposefully look ugly and shabby and not-at-all toy-etic hurts their odds of find representation in the Marvel Legends line, but there are definitely a few I would like to see.

  • Callisto - someone earlier in the thread mentioned she could recycle parts of the mohawk Storm body but with interchangeable heads (and maybe those weird tentacle arms)
  • Sunder - could be a BAF, but wouldn't have to be if he was roughly the size of Colossus or Thing
  • Caliban - call me old fashioned but I prefer the original skinny-ass Caliban to the Fourth Horseman version
  • Masque
  • Leach - might not work as a solo figure given his size, so he could be packaged with another figure in place of a BAF part; on the other hand, they packaged Spider-Ham by himself with a big Venom torso, so...

Yeah, I feel like Artie and Leech would make perfect sense to package together single-carded in a wave.

I hope they shift gears toward the outback team after the 90s. It's a team that's gotten relatively little attention, and Dwight Stall has said in the past that the Reavers are a pet project of his, so those Reavers are gonna need someone to fight! To be fair, they've given a little more attention to pre-outback 80s X-Men (two-pack Cyclops, Nightcrawler, mohawk Storm), but I'd love to see Havok, Longshot, Psylocke, etc.

I agree. The Outback days are some of my favorites from the comics. It’ll be interesting  to see how they would do that Psylocke and Rogue.

Speaking of "teams" I'm wondering if they'll ever release the Hellfire club members as a team in a box set, or just have them come out as singletons. Very surprised we haven't at least seen Sebastian Shaw yet. I'm positive Emma Frost (White Queen) is on the way, since that farce over at Walgreens fell through. Imagine Black Queen will show too, probably with alternate Jean head.

We definitely need the Hellfire Club. Maybe at some point they can do more figures from the Dave Cockrum/ John Byrne days of X-men along with the Hellfire Club. For now I think Shinobi Shaw would be a great figure to go with the rest of the 90s figures.

I liked this look. Not really the one with the big M, but I wouldn’t mind having a Magneto figure with the costume on the left.

The purple with pink cape and white gloves/boots/belt is... inoffensive but boldly generic. It's a costume for a second rate Count Nefaria, not someone with the majesty of Magneto.

Ah, you got me there, for a sec I thought you were being serious. Good one, mate! :D

Even though I don't have the same love for the X-Men that I did twenty-five years ago, there are still a handful of X-related characters I want to add to my collection. 

My Top 5 good guys are

  1. Kitty Pryde - preferably her original New Mutants-style costume, but I'd be just as happy with the blue Excalibur version, too.
  2. Storm - first appearance
  3. Rogue - first appearance, green costume with the hooded jacket and short hair
  4. Cyclops - basically the one from the Dark Phoenix 2-pack, but with the vintage wave optic blast accessories
  5. Magik - New Mutants costume with the eldritch armor arm and sword

Top 5 bad guys

  1. Toad - classic version
  2. The Blob - like the build-a-figure, but cheaper
  3. White Queen - classic Hellfire Club outfit
  4. Callisto - classic
  5. Sentinel - 12 inches at least

Since classic Banshee and Black Tom Cassidy both almost made my lists, how about a 2-pack?
