    Yay! Nearly a whole AOA x-team? Never, never, never thought I'd see even the likes of Blink or X-Man as Legends. But Wild Child now? And at least one more??? Lordy. Blissful, total toyhappinessoverdose. Alternate reality/history events in comics have become so lazy and clichéd (see DC's recent 'Metal', then feel the pain) that it's easy to forget just how good, and influential, the AOA story arc actually was. And for the purposes of whacking out new Legends, it's a goldmine. The radical character redesigns were, and are, MONEY, and I don't think many here would object to an AOA Jean Grey (already prototyped), Rogue, Exodus, Shadowcat, Colossus, Banshee, Abyss, Sinister, Nemesis (aka Holocaust), Cyclops...I'm just listing names now, but I guess that's the point. Between 1993 and 1999, in a decade of complete and utter costume (and character) blah, all the AOA x-characters had coherent, eye-popping, thematically consistent designs, which made sense, looked great and meta-referenced key X-events or character histories (Shadowcat's Wolverine claws; Storm's 'little Ororo' hair; Cyclops, for the first & only time, has one eye; Sabertooth & Wildchild's weird buddy system; Bishop's prophet of doom costume). Until now, though, the characters have never really translated well to toys. Toy Biz's 5" & 6" Marvel Legends just stank and Hasbro's 'Legends reborn' Nemesis (which still looks great, even today, but has a hard plastic, hinged canopy guaranteed to break) have all had issues. Even Blink, perfect in every other way, is Exiles Blink, not AOA blink. Ironically, the Toyfare Exclusive ML Sunfire is perfect, but he gets a do-over anyway... For the BAF, yeah: AOA Apocalypse would be a very, very safe bet. And, as for a seventh character, I'd also put money on that, and the character really has to be Sabertooth. You literally can't have Wildchild on his own, so AOA Sabertooth has to be done.

    That was my reaction. Something is holding the figures up. Maybe he took the photo Halloween night and had some supernatural assistance.

    The figures look nice, though Alter Beast and X-Man are the ones I am really interested. Perosnally I would have preferred a proper X-Men wave.

    I don't think that they would put Wolverine, Sabertooth and WildChild in the same wave. I vote for a yet to be revealed Rogue.

    Great shot eggroll, excellent use of your space as usual and still got me scratching my head trying to figure where your wires are. Sometimes its like trying to figure how the magician tricked us. Thanks for sharing.

    Ya, just look at the art work accompanying the picture of the figure shown on the overhead screen shot. Yes, he's worn a vest at times but that is not the version of the character in the source material they used.

    I know Hasbro doesn't really do "artist series" but I would LOVE if Rogue, Blink, and Magneto were modeled of off Joe Mad's work!

    im hyped for a new crossbones. the Hyperion body never bothered me but I don't like how flat the shirt is, no raised lines or anything where the shirt collar ends. I just think a few small changes would have made it much better

    Just got Giant Man today, very stoked since I never built the BAF, also got stupid scooter Deadpool only because it was such a cheap price and my Girlfriend said I needed to buy it, because of Squirrelpool and Dogpool so I caved 🙄
