    The running gag of the Superior Foes was that they were the Sinister Six despite being five people, so maybe this is Hasbro's own take on it. "They're the Sinister Six, but they are only five characters... aaand there are only four figures."

    I can see the additional Bastion/Sentinel Prime figures being released as Pulse exclusive army builders, like the Hydra & AIM figures were.

    I stopped with classic Eddie Brock Venom & that's it for me. This over saturation of the Venomverse is bout as bad as the over saturation of Umpteenth Deadpools. Much thanks for saving me $$ Hasbro!

    Great comment (the whole thing was a good read) and i'll admit i am probably biased due to being somewhat out of the loop on current comics. To my crusty old self, 2008 seems fairly new but that's just how the years fly by for me these days, so i probably shouldn't be the one deciding who counts as new or not (got into an argument on IG the other day about whether describing Singularity as "a fairly new character" was appropriate). I should also note that i am definitely down for Viv Vision, Ironheart, and Cho Hulk. Reyes seems like a tough sell because you need the car, but its not outside the realm of possibilities imo. Feels like if ML is gonna make a car for anybody it'll be Robbie. as far as looks/characters not being topical when the figures come out, i definitely agree but chalk it up to a combination of a lengthy process of manufacturing (i've heard it generally takes a year (or more) to go from design to product on shelves) and the short shelf-life that many modern costumes and new characters get. I can remember what a huge deal it was when Spidey changed costumes in ASM 252, but nowadays every new creative team tends to get their own shot at designing new looks for characters, which is fine, just makes it tricky when it comes to merchandising. Similiarly new characters are great but when they are legacies they mostly have a built in shelf-life until the "original" returns from death or whatever, and when new characters *are* originals they can be hot for a minute and be an important part of one creative team's stories but can also fade from prominence just as quickly, particularly when a new team comes aboard and isn't interested in putting as much emphasis on that character. Shiklah is a great example.

    I would say that in a world where we have the likes of Rock Python, Titus, and Angela that any character who is more well known than those three is kind of shocking to have not gotten in figure form yet

    I agree with ADour, most of the "newer" looks for figures have been late, and not in immediate relevance to when they were appearing in comics , we actually have been very lucky with getting quite a huge nod to the older looks especially in the X-Men department. I have no problem with it. anyways off the top of my head these are some glaring omissions, that for the most part I'm shocked we have yet to see Classic Dr. Strange Classic Falcon Classic Adam Warlock White Queen Angel Blob Baron Mordo Mandarin Crystal Comic Red Skull (Update) Arcade (this figure is so easy to do for Hasbro, I'm surprised it hasnt yet happened, they have the body, just need a head) Pyro Lockjaw Feral Lady Deathstrike Banshee Firestar Siryn Mojo Longshot Kang Rictor Classic Ultron Tigra Ketch Ghostrider

    I think that Hasbro's preference for the old-school is much more palpable, especially nowadays. Take for example all the themed X-Men rosters that Hasbro has been building over the years. None of them is more modern than the 90s, with Giant-Size X-Men, X-Factor, X-Force, the Arcade game line-up and Age of Apocalypse. Hasbro has been building all of these old-school X-Men rosters at the same time while completely neglectic the current X-Men status quo, Dawn of X, which happens to be the biggest shake-up since Grant Morrison that has catapulted the X-Men back to prominence. I hope the upcoming Powers of X-inspired Nimrod is indicative of something. The Fantastic Four wave got the modern costumes because they had just tackled the classic costumes in the Walgreens set, and the Grey She-Hulk figure is an example of Hasbro being slow with newer looks that I'll elaborate later on. Red Hulk is not a new characters since he's been around since 2008. I'd consider him more of a modern classic. Cosmic Ghost Rider is one of the few examples of Hasbro giving new characters the spotlight in due time. In the case of the Demogoblin wave, the Gamerverse costumes are a bit of an exception, since they're closer to MCU figures when it comes to topicality. And the wave still featured classic/old-school versions of the Vulture, Shang-Chi, and the BAF itself. As I mentioned, my main issue with Hasbro's treatment of newer character or looks, which you mentioned in your comment, is that many times they sit on making them for too long. So by the time they make a figure of it, the character or look is no longer topical. The Grey She-Hulk is a perfect example of this; aready outdated by the time she was announced. Shiklah was a relevant character in Deadpool's word... about four years ago. Superior Octopus had already gone through two identity changes (Superior Spider-Man and then classic Doc Ock) by the time his figure was out (plus Hasbro had already made classic Doc Ock). The Modern Hercules figure was hitting the shelves by the time a new book in which he changed his look was hitting the stands. The All-New Wolverine figure came out three years after Laura had become Wolverine, and a few months after she had already returned to being X-23. The Jane Foster Thor figure came out in 2017, three years after she'd first appeared, and a few months before she'd stop being Thor. I find this "latency effect" easy to notice by looking at Iron Man figures. The Extremis Armor debuted in 2004, Tony dropped it in 2009, it got a figure in 2012. The Bleeding Edge Armor debuted in 2010, Tony dropped it in 2012, it got a figure in 2013. The Marvel NOW! Armor debuted in 2012, Tony dropped it in 2014, it got a figure in 2015. The Model-Prime Armor debuted in 2015, it got a figure in 2017, Tony dropped it in 2018. I feel that if Hasbro really prioritized modern characters and looks, we'd already have gotten figures for Ironheart, Robbie Reyes, Nadia Van Dyne, Brawn, Viv Vision, in addition for figures of established modern looks for characters like Loki, Ultron, Doctor Strange, Captain Marvel, Scarlet Witch, Thor, Star-Lord and the Wasp, to give a few examples off the top of my head.

    I would put comic Falcon and classic Doc Strange at the top of the list. I'm kinda surprised Strange didn't get a figure as part of the 80th anniv line. I'm guessing we will see a Falcon figure soon with a wings similar to the recent Vulture figure. I think Firestar would've been made already but it seems like there are unresolved issues about what sort of wave she would go in, doesn't make much sense to me but its the rumored excuse from hasbro. Thought there was also a rumor of a Spider-man and his amazing friends set coming but not sure whether there's any truth to that. Given the line's focus on 90s looks & moderns looks it doesn't surprise me that they haven't gotten around to the likes of Two-Gun Kid or Swordsman yet. But at this point its not safe to bet against hasbro making any character, so they could be just round the corner, who knows?

    This December, the entire Marvel Universe braces itself for KING IN BLACK, the latest installment in writer Donny Cates and artist Ryan Stegman’s revolutionary take on the Venom mythos. Knull is coming, and when he arrives, everyone from the Avengers to the X-Men will learn just how unprepared they are to face off against the God of the Symbiotes. Everything in Cates and Stegman’s landmark run on VENOM has led up to this monumental story, and readers will finally witness Eddie Brock’s climatic standoff with one of Marvel’s most terrifying villains. With each mind-bending twist and turn, the stakes will be raised like never before as KING IN BLACK flips everything you thought you knew about Venom and the world of the symbiotes upside down and inside out. Learn more in a special video announcement from the mastermind creative team, and stay tuned for more news about what to expect when KING IN BLACK lands later this year! "As far as event books go, this is the coolest, darkest, most heavy metal, Cthulhu dark horror thing I’ve ever been able to do,” promises Cates. “I still can’t believe that Marvel is letting us go as dark and scary as we’re going.” “One of the things I’m most proud of in this series… is the creation of the character Knull,” Stegman says. “We have some new designs that we’ll be unveiling throughout the series that are really cool and really creepy.” Ready or not, don’t miss KING IN BLACK #1 when it hits stands this December!

    Yes, the time between new story elements popping up and the merchandise being made has been getting shorter, but I believe that if these story elements were being created in part with merchandise in mind, the gap would be closer to non-existant. Just take for example the synergy between Marvel Studios and Hasbro in the production of toys for a movie. It sounds counterintuitive that Marvel would keep merchandise in mind but not ensure the merchandise comes out faster than two years. A two-year gap is a long time. In addition to that, a lot of newer stories or story elements haven't even gotten merchandise at all. For example, the 2018 event Infinity Wars had this concept of the Infinity Warps, which was a new group of characters that each was the fusion of two heroes (Iron Man + Thor = Iron Hammer, Captain America + Doctor Strange = Soldier Supreme, etc.). The potential in merchandising of that idea was off the roof, but it's been two years and not even Funko Pops have been made of them. And as for the final part of your comment, that's the part I meant when I said that I agreed with part of the sentiment of your original reply. I personally endorse the idea of letting things breathe a bit before new events are made, and I wish the supply chain of events slowed down a bit, especially if sometimes turning a storyline into an event comes at the cost of its quality.

    If this was based on original Kirby design I feel they’d have more interest. I think they’re over selling the impact of house of X powers of X.

    This is part of the thing that I'm stumped when it comes to doing a HasLab Marvel legends, what is going to make it so special. Hasbro can make a 2 foot tall Transformers and sell it in stores for around 150 quid, so why are they hoping to achieve with a HasLab Marvel legends, which won't need the same about of molding or complexity. Again just release Giant Marvel Legends like the Transformers Titan Class

    I think this would be an interesting concept, and it being used for repaints would mean the budget in other areas like accessories shouldn't suffer much. However, I agree that it should be something better than just pieces of cardboard. I think Hasbro could really take a page from Diamond Select's playbook and do them like the interconnected bases Marvel Select has done in the past. The Danger Room that came with the X-Men figures, or the Avengers Facility that came with the Civil War movie figures.

    I see Leland being done on one of the larger bodies and then given a "gut" via a soft plastic vest piece. Sort of like what ToyBiz did to help turn the Professor X buck into Dracula way back in the Marvel Monsters set.

    It is interesting you mention the debut of the Black Costume as it does highlight another difficulty with new characters and costumes; there is no way of knowing if a look/character is even going to be a hit or not. It is hard to believe but when it first debuted, the Black Costume wasn't popular with fans or the bullpen and only started to get popular after the got rid of the symbiote (hence the cloth version). Similiarly when it debut Marvel thought Wonderman's green jetpack costume was going to be a hit, boy were they wrong.

    I don't know how much any of these count as "shocking" omissions or how you'd qualify that, but these are the characters that I think are among the most popular/prevalent or iconic that don't have modern Marvel Legends figures. Biggest hero omissions (all classic comic book versions) Doctor Strange The Falcon Captain Marvel II (Monica Rambeau) She-Hulk Luke Cage Iron Fist Adam Warlock Gamora Giant Man or Goliath or Yellowjacket Captain Britain Biggest villain omissions (classic comic versions again) Ultron Kang the Conquerer Red Skull Mephisto Galactus The Mandarin The Mole Man M.O.D.O.K. Ronan the Accuser Annihilus

    Just because someone doesn't deem a character "essential" doesn't mean others don't want it. Similarly a character that someone deems "essential" doesn't mean that others would consider that character "essential". Hasbro have to try and appease everyone which is impossible so they try to do the best they can.

    Internet reviewers with their inflated since of entitlement, "collectors" who buy two or three of everything that comes out so they can have one to open and one to hang in their "toy-cave," scalpers who sell incomplete figures for full price or more, e-tailers like BBTS or Megalopolis who needlessly mark up everything, repackagers and other thieves; sadly there's no shortage of schmucks in this hobby.
