Marvel Legends Age Of Apocalypse Wave - Who Will The Build-A-Figure Be???

First off, I said I "wonder."  Not that I believe it as incontrovertible fact.

Second, whatever amount of AoA stuff they're giving us next year is not stopping them from making other "regular x-characters" as we already know the Strong Guy wave is coming.

X-Men are evergreen.  Unless Hasbro's losing the license they can make more regular X-Characters every year.  Next year is a significant anniversary for the Age of Apocalypse, though, and it's probably more savvy marketing to put them in their own sub-assortment than to try sprinkling them into future waves if it can be avoided.

 

 

I'm not saying they didn't but I dont remember them really hinting to more than one wave of AoA and honestly think it would be a mistake if they did do more. I just don't see enough demand for it out there regardless of the Anniversary.  If they do more AoA characters beyond this wave my guess it wouldn't be a full waves worth. I cold maybe see them sticking a few here or there in other X-Men waves or maybe something as a store exclusive.

As for the X-Force wave with Strong Guy, thats gonna be out this year by years end I believe, so I wouldn't really count that as next year.

The Deadpool wave with the Strong Guy BAF is scheduled for fall 2020. We get Spider-Man and Fantastic Four January 1st, then Age of Apocalypse and (presumably) Black Widow should be March to May sometime, and Deadpool is the last of the five waves we know about for next year.

Enzosaurusrex I have had a few things at the top of my list...A Skrull Boxed set (or a few waves where every character gets an additional Skrull version head), some Age of Apocalypse figures (never would have guessed we would get at least two waves), and any figures based on Madureira art work...ANY!!!  

That would be really cool if every figure in the wave comes with a half-transformed Skrull head, and the other half of the head is of the figure in the box!

Hey, if you have some sort of inside info, I'm not trying to be argumentative. I'm going off of reporting done by this site (here) and the facts that 1) wholesalers have not yet solicited for this wave, which they would have had to do in order to get it out in the next month and a half, unless Hasbro is dramatically changing its business model; and 2) we don't know half the figures in the wave yet, which would be unusual (but not entirely out of the question) for a wave coming so soon.

I bet the release dates will also be affected by whether or not they have other waves already lined up and ready to go. Hasbro may also need to push future waves back if they need to focus on MCU stuff (especially with all the streaming shows about to drop).

Not a half bad idea!

BWHHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

But seriously, I like it, I hope to see it done!
