House of X/Powers of X BAF speculation

Recommended Posts

During the panel today they mentioned that the BAF for the X-Men House of X/Powers of X/Dawn of X wave would both fit the wave-theme and go well with the Haslab sentinel for anyone that got any. I had previously assumed Apocalypse or Armor were most likely, but now I'm trying to make sense of this clue. Karima Shapandar? She'd be little for a BAF, but that's not entirely unprecedented. Anyone have thoughts, ideas, or theories?

I'm sure they know people want Ichiki, but yeah, she doesn't really fit the theme well, and another Apocalypse seems like overkill so soon.  It might be Karima Shapandar, who might require enough unique new tooling as an Omega Sentinel that making her a BAF may be the only way Hasbro could see to justify making her.

If they hadn't done him already I would have said Nimrod the Lesser. Karima could work with they went nuts with accessories

Wracking my brain, but having only read HoX and PoX once I'm stuck on Nimrod the Lesser (really unlikely) and Karima for the sentinel connection.  Can't remember if those sentinels from the timeline with Rasputin and Cardinal might work.

How about Proteus? , Krakoa ? (obviously when it;s more a monster then an Island)

I got nothing haha

probably just another Apocalypse in the end

want to say Blob, but he wasn't much in the story as far as I remember.

I was just thinking how we've never gotten a Proteus, it HAS to come with "melted" Wolverine hands and head

I would be pleased if it was Proteus, and it could be his more bulky bigger look, he works in terms of the fact its Moira's son, and House of X is hugely Moira oriented. I think he's a solid Candidate although he doesn't fit the Legends team description of the supposed BAF I guess except for that he fits the Theme.

Or this vaguely Nimrod looking hunter from Year 100. Almost looks like they could recycle pieces from SP//DR.

hey actually this seems like a good speculation, they totally could re-use parts from SP//DR , and it fits the theme and the fact it goes with Sentinels, good noggin using.

BAF is cool but I'm more interested in remaining 3-4 figures they have to reveal, 1 of them is definitely Jean in her Green skirt and yellow mask, other two could be Cyclops and Wolverine, which would be kinda boring for me, they could reuse or give us new Mystique and Sabertooth, especially Mystique with her prices going above 50 it seems like a necessity at this point, I would kill if they made all new pin less female body that has similar proportions to newly released 2pack Rogue (maybe add some better elbow articulation.)

I would be shocked if at least two of the remaining figures aren't from the Year 100 or Year 1000 timelines. I think Rasputin is a lock; she was one of the most visible characters early on, appearing in promos and covers. Plus they've already got Illyana's sword that they can reuse. I can picture Cardinal or Omega filling out the ranks, or possibly the Krakoa/Cypher hybrid reusing some Groot body parts.

Given we have Moira, why not have her arch-enemy Destiny as one of the figures

I'm definitely hoping for Destiny, but guessing the remaining wave slots belong to Cyclops, Jean, Wolverine, and then maybe either Captain Britain or Storm. I feel like they want us to be able to recreate the iconic House of X cover with Cyclops, Jean, Magneto, Wolverine, and Xavier walking out of a gateway.

Proteus is also one of the five! Doesn't have much to do with sentinels, though...

The Five would be a good multi-pack for next year would also get us 4 new characters and better Hope Summers
