I'm hoping if/when they do the Titanium Man they use the classic armor; that's definitely "beefy":

Yeah, I could definitely see OG Titanium Man as a BAF.   Though that second picture is crazy...was the guy in the suit an actual giant because that head is HUGE.

Russian scientists roided him up big time so he did grow in hgt & stature to close to 8-9ft tall.

That's the Titanium Man I think everyone wants, so of course, they'll totally pic some short lived one-off type appearance version and leave us here with nothing but this picture to salivate over.

I'm an Iron Man fan, but I've always disliked the retro look for Titanium Man. With those round eyes he looks like a friedly robot with the body of a metalized Hulk, like the armor equivalent of a baby-faced body-builder. So I'm on the side that wants a late-1980s-to-2000s Titanium Man (basically, a redo of the 2011 Titanium Man figure).

Yes that's no accident....o'l Boris actually was incredibly big. He had genetic experiments done to him in order to fit the huge armor. In fact I think I read, for a time, BLACK WIDOW was one of his KGB combat instructors....

I don't remember him needing an experiments to fit in the armour. Boris was a man-mountain before he got anywhere near an armour

Agreed.  It's a want that underlines the call for an Iron Man Legends wave or two.  There are so many armors, among good guys and bad guys alike, that have yet to be attempted.  And it's not like Iron Man is getting any more popular.  Strike while the Iron Man is hot!  (Sorry...)

Especially what got me back into Marvel Legends was the Iron Man 3 (Iron Monger BAF) wave. The did it once why not again and again?

A number of sources state that he had experiments done.

Marvel Database: "Bullski underwent various experiments performed on him by the Soviet government for the purpose of handling the tremendous bulk of the Titanium Man Armor. The result was Bullski's size and strength greatly increased"

Fwoosh: "Bullski’s superiors soon became displeased with his performance, exiling him from Russia to house arrest in Vietnam.  There he underwent numerous experimental and dangerous procedures to quickly increase his physique to inhuman proportions"

Wikipdedia:" Having the suit redesigned and undergoing medical treatments that increased both his size and strength. Traveling to the United States, Bullski fought Iron Man in the skies above Washington, D.C. but was defeated; Boris Bullski, the original Titanium Man, also possessed enhanced strength due to treatments given to him by the Soviet government to augment his physiology, making him grow into an 11-foot-tall giant"

Writeups.org: "...Bullski is a giant of man, giving him great strength and authority. He then went through several rounds of embiggening through unrevealed artificial means. His enhanced size was originally presented — in 1966 — as a “hormones treatment”. Whatever those were, the were not as good at suspending normal physics as Pym particles. With his size artificially bolstered, Bullski could not physically function under normal gravity conditions without assistance. He had to wear his armour at all times"....

Although I do recall he was pretty big even before getting the armor. And, there have been different pilots for the Titanium Man armor. But I sure do hope to see the original big azzed armor as a BAF; it doesn't have to be in an Iron Man wave though that would be most likely. But he was trained briefly under the Black Widow, so could do a 2nd wave with her, and this time give us a Widow worthy of the name.  It would allow us to get an original Crimson Dynamo, comic version Belova, and some of the Winter Guard.  Just a thought.

I want both the classic 70s-early 80s Boris Bullski T-man armor & the mid 80s "Armor wars" T-man armor that Gremlin wore! Bottom line is we need both versions of T-man & Armor wars Crimson Dynamo version & Hasbro, don't make it giant sized, 80s CD should be max, half a head taller than 80th anniv classic IM. Same goes for armor wars T-man. Only 70s version of T-man should be in 8' scale if not 9'!

On the subject of the Black Widow....the figure released with the motorcycle was also a disaster with that horrid seam down the middle of her chest. Doesn't do any good to have a motorcycle if the figure cant fit on it. This really deserves a re-do.

Looking at that Crossbones figure, I think the head is sitting way too high on the neck peg. Once I get it, I'll just Dremel the hole in the head a bit deeper & that should fix the Giraffe issue. These are due to hit the pegs sometime in March?

I doubt we are going to get second wave for Black Widow in the light of avengers video game getting their own wave, however, it’s still could be real possibility, Titanium man baf and Comic book black widow would have been amazing but who knows there’s still toy fair coming up.

    • Right. I don't remember anyone having a problem with Bucky replacing Cap (don't get me started on how many Captain America's there were before the ridiculous Sam controversy- even the Red Skull bodysnatched Cap for a time), or the blonde Black Widow, the Crimson Dynamo, Union Jack, Red Hulks, need I go on. There's nothing in this announcement that says Jack Russell terrier is being wiped out in favor of this new guy. In fact I wouldn't be surprised if they end up having both werewolves cross paths.

    • When MARVELS SNAPSHOTS begins in March, fans will get to see Marvel's greatest characters from the Golden Age to today, in new legendary tales told through the eyes of ordinary people! As curator of this landmark series, Kurt Busiek has handpicked the creative teams for each standalone, double-sized issue and he’s put together an amazing assemblage of talent to tackle April’s issues focusing on Captain America and the X-Men. First up, Eisner nominated writer Mark Russell will revisit Jack Kirby’s classic Madbomb storyline from his 1970s run on CAPTAIN AMERICA. “Some people, when they call, you gotta pick up the phone. And Kurt Busiek is one of those people,” says Russell. “I was pretty instantly sold on the project once he started describing it to me— stories about the human cost of these famous conflicts in the Marvel Universe. I truly enjoyed working on this with him.” Known for his work on books like Second Coming and Wonder Twins, Russell says MARVELS SNAPSHOT: CAPTAIN AMERICA will focus on “the Madbomb's impact in the South Bronx, a community which had already been effectively abandoned by the rest of the nation, that community's struggle for survival, and of the search for heroes of its own.” He will be joined by acclaimed artist Ramón Pérez(ALL-NEW HAWKEYE). Next, in X-MEN: MARVELS SNAPSHOT, readers will see the rise of super heroes from the eyes of a young orphan named Scott Summers, the boy who would grow up to be Cyclops. The future X-Men leader couldn’t be in safer hands. Jay Edition, the co-host of the popular X-Men podcast, Jay and Miles X-Plain the X-Men, makes his Marvel Comics debut with a tale about one of his favorite characters. “This is a story that's pretty personal to me—because I'm me, and it's a Cyclops story; but even more because it's about the ways that superheroes and the stories around them can become lifelines. If I'm going to be really sappy about it (which I absolutely am), I get to give one of my favorite heroes the same kind of touchstone he's been to me over the years,” says Edidin. “I'd say it's a dream come true, but given that I'm the kind of uptight overachiever who overidentifies with Scott Summers in the first place, maybe also a bit of an anxiety dream come true. That said, it's been a blast to get to sit down and play in a sandbox I've spent years cataloguing and analyzing and explaining." Teaming up with Edidin will be artist Tom Reilly, a rising star artist known for his recent work on Immortal Hulk. Don’t miss this grand celebration of Marvel’s legacy that’s sure to be an instant favorite for True Believers old and new.
