  1. You're probably right. I was thinking different paint jobs would be enough. I was thinking of this yesterday. Did he turn blue, then back to normal, then back to blue? When he starts with X-Factor he's normal, then turns blue and never goes back, but he was blue with the Avengers, and that was before X-Factor, right?
  2. Original X-Factor could also double as an original X-Men. I've never seen it, but my understanding is that the original X-Men boxset wasn't very good. It's at least been a couple of years since it's release now, right? I would think they'd be a shoe-in for sales. They could even do some of the variant costumes worn by the X-Factor team. Or how about X-Factor in their "mutant hunting" overalls? Probably too obscure.
  3. I voted for: Boom-Boom's power effect. It looks like she is throwing her time bomb. That's cool. X-Men Vintage wave packaging. The graphics and pictures are appealing. I really appreciated the easy way to split open the cardboard to access the plastic clamshell. It's sealed well, but easy to open. Very clever package engineering. Caliban BAF and wave. It offered a lot of good figures, new figures we needed, and good updates of previously released characters. Caliban looks like a great figure, too.
  4. Iceman was awesome looking in AoA. I like when they can pull of a weird sized figure. Giant spiked shoulders and fists. Huge, ice-slide body. Could be cool.
  5. Didn't he have some giant sized appearances in his battle with Magneto in Amazing X-Men? I was actually thinking of the sentinels as a BAF the other day. They would indeed be cool. Could Hasbro do something that big anymore? The TB one was huge, and Fin Fang Foom was huge. How expensive would that line have to be to accommodate the cost of so much plastic. Maybe they choose all small characters: Lava-lamp Shadow King with a Sentinel leg. Tiny Sugarman a la X-Men Omega with the torso....
  6. Right. He'd have to be somewhat rigid for display and articulation purposes. Would it be enough for him to just have a couple of "unraveled" limbs? He could be a cool figure. He could also be a major fail. I would also expect other characters to come first. Since we have so many characters from Astonishing X-Men, maybe Nemesis makes sense.
  7. I voted Apocalypse. I know he wasn’t highly active, but he was in almost every title and it’s a cool look. Like others, I think it will be Sabertooth based on Wild Child’s inclusion. Nemesis would be cool. I missed out on him the first time. I actually have the old TB Sugar Man from the 5” line. He was oversized then. I should see how he compares. How would Abyss be best designed? He had a normal look, and his giant unraveled tape look.
  8. Yeah. Y'know, my thought is that they both look so radically different, and they are popular characters. I bet they would do well. I think they would be visually appealing to kids, and obscure enough for collectors. That would be the sweet spot for an A-list character, right?
  9. Got it. It would be cool to see some of these lesser known versions. I think that Thor wasn't too popular at the time but it looks kind of neat now. I would think that any Captain America would sell. Having armor should help that too.
  10. That's the other Wolverine Character that comes to mind immediately. I think there are a lot of "suited" versions that could be cool. In the Acts of Vengeance story arc in which Mandarin turns Psylocke into an assassin, he appears largely in a suit. It's a really cool look. It probably wouldn't fly off the shelves. I wonder if a Wolverine would. It's nice seeing the images. That Wolverine would be cool, of course. Not an original thought there. The Captain America and Thor are interesting versions. I remember that Thor from the Onslaught crossover. When did that Cap appear and why? I like that Binary and Storm. Zenpool actually looks kind of neat, and Kluh, about whom I know nothing. Nice lists everyone.
  11. That Deadpool is an actually good idea. I mean. Not really, but it would probably the most acceptable of all options. Clever idea! I have the old Toy-biz Weapon X Logan, and Days of Future Past Logan and they are very good in my eyes. I'm not sure of Hasbro's attempts. The cowboy one seemed alright.
  12. Ah. I understand their methodology. I guess I was just thinking it might be a fun concept. I know we all get irritated by the over-inclusion of Wolverine, and especially Deadpool. I was wondering how many different waves could make of these characters in costumes that Hasbro hasn't done yet.
  13. We all know every Marvel Legends wave absolutely has to have an Iron Man, Spider-Man, Wolverine, or Deadpool. It's just a fact. So, in order to craft the best Legends wave ever, they should all be in the same line! What I would like to see in this thread, is how many waves can we create with just those characters? For the sake of allowing more people to chime in, limit your response to one figure per character, please. Additionally, I was only able to think of those four "must have" characters, but if you can give good argumentation in support of some others, that would be great. I was thinking that Captain America, Thor, Hulk, perhaps Ms. Marvel, or Magneto could be included in a secondary strata of line anchor figures. Anyway, have at it! For my wave: Wolverine as Death (Horseman of Apocalypse from The Twelve storyline) Spider-Man as Hornet (from the Identity Crisis storyline) Deadpool in his Baraka appearance from X-Men Origins: Wolverine Iron Man Samurai armor (as far as I know this was just a toy in the 90's Iron Man line, but it looked cool, and I can't think of anything else at the moment) Rogue as Ms. Marvel (or, Ms. Marvel manifesting through Rogue's body) Magneto in purple New Mutants costume (Magneto has had more than a few inclusions of late, was important in the movies, and figures squarely in the comics, so he is my other secondary anchor character) BAF Hulk as War (Hulk had his own wave, so though he isn't the big four, I'm including him) I know; this isn't the best list. I made some awful choices on some. Let's see if you can come up with something better!
  14. Really? The Hellfire Club is cool, but the big M is not? I get it. But I think it looks kind of cool anyway....
  15. I mostly remember it from X-Men #1. I think it would be cool just because it’s different. It very simple, though the big “M” is a little funny I suppose.
