With the AOA reveals complete barring the BAF, the question is, who should the BAF be. Personally I would like it to be Apocalypse (It is his wave :D) or Holocaust

At this point I'm saying its Sabretooth , but I'd personally like it to be Apocalypse, but it doesn't make sense for that, I think Apocalypse will be BAF for wave 2

but Who Knows, they might be doing something weird this go round, and give us someone else as the BAF here like Nemesis or Apocalypse, and throw Sabretooth in wave 2 and someone else as the BAF there, I feel like I'm bad at the predicting game

If Dark Beast can be a regularly-packaged figure, I see no reason why Sabretooth can't be, so I would lean on him being a Wave 2 figure (assuming that happens). Also, including Wolverine, Sabretooth, Wild Child, and Beast all in the same wave...? Does someone have a feral man fetish much?

Since it's the Age of Apocalypse, I think it should be Apocalypse's wave.

Would gladly see Sabretooth, Sugar Man or Holocaust. Voted Sabretooth because I've seen a few people on Facebook make a valid point that AoA Sabretooth was huge and being a BAF allows for him to be big enough for Wild Child to perch on.

Colossus! That way he can be a little bigger than the one that came in the recent 2 pack.

I wouldn't mind another colossus :smile:

I dont think Sabretooth should be the BAF, he could very likely be a regular figure and since Dwight has hinted that they have plans for at least 2 waves for AOA, Sabretooth would be a better fit the bigger sized figure in wave 2, along with Magneto, Rogue, Cyclops, Bishop and a couple more figures (hopefully 2 villians like Mr. Sinister, Havok or Abyss)

I think Apocalypse should the the BAF of this wave (it IS "Age of Apocalypse" after all), and for wave 2 have Nemesis/Holocaust be the BAF, Colossus would be a cool figure but I never thought he was that important in the overall story, Id rather he was made as a regular figure in a 2 pack with Kitty, same goes for a Nightcrawler & Mystique 2 pack.

I feel like Holocaust is the best choice. Apocalypse wasn't really a big part of the Age of Apocalypse storyline. He was a big part of the world, but not the story. Either Holocaust or Sugar Man could be done in a regular X-wave, but Holocaust just feels more at home here. To be clear, of those mentioned, Colossus is the figure I most want, but he and Sabretooth should just be regular figures in the next wave. Abyss would be tough to do as a figure, but super cool if they could pull it off.

We already have a great Apocalypse, even though it's off this story line. I think Nemesis is due a remake. The last one was okay in regards to the type of product being put out in the Dark Days but a new one in the vein of current ML standards is well in order.

I voted Apocalypse. I know he wasn’t highly active, but he was in almost every title and it’s a cool look.

Like others, I think it will be Sabertooth based on Wild Child’s inclusion.

Nemesis would be cool. I missed out on him the first time. I actually have the old TB Sugar Man from the 5” line. He was oversized then. I should see how he compares.

How would Abyss be best designed? He had a normal look, and his giant unraveled tape look.

For Abyss, I would prefer unravelled tape monster, but not sure how that would work as a figure

Right. He'd have to be somewhat rigid for display and articulation purposes. Would it be enough for him to just have a couple of "unraveled" limbs? He could be a cool figure. He could also be a major fail.

I would also expect other characters to come first. Since we have so many characters from Astonishing X-Men, maybe Nemesis makes sense.

For an unravelled Abyss, I keep thinking of something like the awful Spidey 3 Sandman but hopefully better

Apocalypse makes the most sense, but I would personally like to see either Sugar Man, Holocaust, or even a giant AOA Iceman.

This would make me track down the whole wave for the BaF... or just... buy it loose.

I know I'm in the minority, probably the only 1, but I picked "other". How bout a 12'-14 or '16' AOA Sentinel as the BAF! That was a very cool design for them & I'm a huge Sentinel fan. Apocalypse as the BAF of almost every X-Men related wave is getting to be overkill.  His normal hgt is 7ft tall. he rarely ever goes giant sized. People stuck on his giant sized app in the 90s X-Men toons.

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.... :wink:

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.

Never thought of Iceman, he would be pretty cool (pardon the pun)

My choice would be Sugar Man- he's jsut such a weird, creepy character. His Toy Biz figure was pretty good, but it would be awesome to have a fully articulated one. Holocaust, while not perfect, was done before, and I'd rather have a new-to-Legends figure. AOA Apocalypse should be done some time, but the Apocalypse BAF wave was recent enough that he should maybe be saved for another AOA, or just X-Men, wave.

If Hasbro were to start doing giant sized figures back in the 16' scale as the BAF, then I would have zero issues with paying $25.99-$26.99 for each fig in that particular 6-7 figure wave. If the BAF in other waves is normal sized or just in the 8' range, then the price should stay in the $19.99-$21.99 range.

 

 The AOA Sentinels could shoot out their fists so that would be a cool feature to see. I wish I could find a good full sized clear pic of the AOA Sentinels but am having trouble finding one. I googled AOA Sentinels & this was the best pic I could find of them.

Thanks for the additional pics! Yeah, I'd easily buy a triad of those AOA Sentinels if in 16' scale. Very cool visual designs & bout the only character design I liked in the entire AOA saga.

I would prefer a classic sentinel, but I won't complain if they did do AOA Sentinels

    • No sign of Cuckoos at my local WG in southeast MA.  they did have had bits and pieces of Demogoblin wave, which was a pleasant surprise since usually its just the same pegwarmers i've seen there for the past 3+ years. Saw She-Hulk at target yesterday, so now i've found the whole wave in the wild except for Doom.  She-Hulk looks pretty cool but not particularly interested in her. I had heard some WM were putting older waves on clearance for $4.50 (!) so i checked my locals but they are selling the older waves for like $16.83 so if anything the price has been raised from the $11 they were at right after the holidays, lol. I'd like to tell my local walmart manager that he will never get rid of the 40 or so Prof Hulk wave figures they have in stock at that price, but i doubt they'd listen or care.
    • We're not that deep into rumorville. These are listings being put out to retailers which 9 times out of 10 turn out to be correct. Nothing is 100% confirmed until Hasbro confirms it and changes are possible, but its not like we are talking far fetched rumors either. The biggest questions here are the unkowns like comic vs video game based, but Tarrot is right they never list BAF in individual listings so Rage is almost def a single pack figure not BAF.
    • Wouldn't be surprised to see him revealed at Toyfair, altho i don't know what wave he would be a part of and can't see him being a fan channel exclusive.  SDCC seems like it would be a bit late for a reveal since by the time he came out 2020 would be nearly over, and i don't think he's popular enough to be an sdcc exclusive unless they do a whole 'time warriors' box set.
    • The only two characters that appeal to me in the FF and Spider-Man wave are Doom and Shang-Chi and Vulture. I find this wave with Rage, Mach-1, Leader and Mar-vell  is much more appealing. Everyone is going to have different preferred favorites especially as you start getting into the more obscure characters, hence why the Spider-Man, Cap and Iron Mans that everyone always complain about are always found in these waves.
    • Yeah i agree. i have 4 figs from the wave now though,  so i'll probably end up picking up superior ock and armor spidey to finish him. Ock seems to be selling well at the moment but armor spidey seems to be lingering on the pegs, altho its early yet of course.  I do like that Demo has a stand for his glider, feels like characters like Green Goblin and Silver Surfer should come with some sort of stand for their flying devices.
