I know some people are listing new figures or repaints of older figures but Best of figures are usually just a straight re-release with maybe a new package. There is no new figure in these lines and it will more then likely NOT be available in the US outside of imports.

Reissues of Jim Lee Rogue and Cyclops makes sense. Would love to see them sneak in a Banshee to finish off that Giant Size team. Sunfire quit that team right off the bat and Thunderbird got killed off

the two MCU waves had a repainted Hulkbuster and a repainted Thanos

It's still a new BAF, Just because a figure uses reused parts doesn't make it a re-release. Every single Best of BAF has been a re-release

Also people saying Psylocke I think can expect her not to be in this wave with her supposedly coming in the 3-pack with Nimrod. For people who are about to say it not confirmed, there has been more listing of it showing up in systems.

If they are going with the classic giant size theme then it should be

1.) storm ( in her original costume)   

2.) Thunderbird ( john proudstar)

3.) an updated banshee 

4.) unus figure (brotherhood of evil mutants)

5.) toad (brotherhood of evil mutants)

6.) Mastermind ( b.o.e.m.)

7.) Mimic 

Or better yet ..... the hellfire club

  1. Hulkbuster
  2. Giant Man
  3. Gladiator Hulk

Yeah I agree its not likely theyd do a brand new figure. However I don't think a re-paint is so totally out of left field. But lets be honest....we wont know for sure what these guys will do until its on the market. Consistency isn't their strong suit!

Yeah I am feeling certain (and sorry to disappoint) it's going to be one of these style waves, but on a cool/good note, the interesting thing that some of these waves, more so being the first two waves actually had some multipack, exclusives and oddities in the wave, that North America never got as single releases, such as the Hulkbuster wave including both the Thor and Hawkeye from Amazon exclusive AOU 4-pack, both the Cap and Loki from the Walmart exclusive Avengers Movie figure line (which were not technically branded as legends) (of course we saw that Cap re-released here much later as Endgame Wave 3 cap, with a movie accurate head), The Hulkbuster BAF was also slightly painted differently. The second wave which was Giant-Man was actually painted slightly different, more sliver less Grayish parts, plus that wave had the Walmart exclusive Falcon and Winter Soldier, as well as Target Exclusive War Machine from the Disco Iron Man 2-Pack, Lastly the Thanos BAF was actually painted differently.

So even if this is just old figures again, there may be some special stuff, like multipack releases..exclusives , different paint jobs etc, but that doesn't seem to likely since the addition of those sort of figures has been low/non existent since the Gladiator Hulk Wave. I also should mention....good luck getting these figures if you don't live in UK/AUS/EU

No BAF is good for me, especially if these are re-releases. It means I potentially won't miss out on an interesting BAF for figures I don't want or need. If they include in the line Jim Lee Rogue, Stryfe, and Gladiator. I'll be happy.

Here is my guess/ hope

1. Wolverine (tiger stripe)

2. Cyclops (Lee)

3. Rogue (Lee)

4. Colossus (80th)

5. Magneto (3 pack)

6. Storm (silver?)

7. Nightcrawler

BAF: Juggernaut (80th)

Dude, that would be a good wave. My only question with it is they recently released Wolverine and Cyclops in the three-pack. I know they need to release a Wolverine, but would it cannibalize the sale of the Love Triangle?

I really think the BAF will be Juggernaut from the two pack. Could be APOCALYPSE but I'd be suprised

Yea I would agree. There's no way it's Caliban (or Warlock).

Wouldn't it be crazy if the BAF was the Kinpin but with the Shadow King head?

I guess we all agree that these are just gonna be re-releases with a previous BAF (my money is on Juggs as well). What I'm afraid will happen is some of these figures will actually be an upgrade from previous releases and the people who got them the first time will be upset, say if Rogue got a metallic paint job or Cyclops got some paint wash. Good on the people who weren't able to get those characters on the first run, but could you really not expect people who did not to feel kinda cheated?

Jim Lee Wolverine was first released as part of the Apocalypse wave, so any re-release would be of that version not the three pack version

Unlikely, these are generally straight up re-releases, their isn't going to be anything that is going to make anyone annoyed

Nah, it isn't going to be a new BAF it will be a previously released BAF

Which is why I said "Wouldn't it be crazy...."

Nah, it would be crazy if it was a completely new BAF,  no reused parts and a new character.  That would sicken everyone
