  1. I thought the love triangle one was good, and the HoXPoX wave was OK. You didn’t like either of them?
  2. That one is kind of neat. Another neo-classic. What I think is weird is that we have circled back to the days of impossibly impractical costumes from the 90's. How could Stryfe's huge helmet and spikes function in a battle? How could those spikes on storm do any better? It's funny how aesthetics change. Does anyone wear those big goofy boots anymore, like Wolverine's or Captain America's? Giant floppy pieces of fabric hanging all over?
  3. I like these pictures. I really want that Xavier now. I'm sure we'll be waiting until the 70th anniversary for Crimson Commando, Silver Saber, and Stonewall, but I hope not.
  4. I think the best options to include in the next wave are Husk and Smasher. Both would allow Hasbro to save some money. Smasher is practically that new Wonderman's head on Vulcan's body. Husk accessories are fun to consider. They could make a half diamond, half ripped skin head. Multiple different hands would be necessary: gloved, diamond. Didn't she have a giant chunk of rock as a fist one time?
  5. Some of those are cool. I like that they are doing a sort of neo-classic interpretation of some of the costumes. What is going on with Sunfire, though? He looks like Iron Man. Does he still have the rising sun on his costume? It looks more like the Union Jack.
  6. I think you might be on to something. I thought the AoA Shadowcat pictures looked terrible, but I was pleasantly surprised by the actual figure. M might look better in real life. I hope it does!
  7. Oh yeah. Emplate and Penance were so cool. I loved those claws and that weird hair. I think a Synch effect would be possible as long as there aren't too many other accessories. It wouldn't be too different than the recent Havok or Zero accessories. Mondo would probably be the BAF, eh? I think they actually improved the face on the blue-and-yellow Jubilee.
  8. Wow. Exciting reveals. It would be quite the misstep to make Fang taller than Wolverine. The blue and yellow 3-packs look really nice together. Psylocke's hair is a little meh. I'm glad they went for the 90's Gen X team. I wonder if M looks weird because of the armor on her costume. I also wonder how much articulation Chamber's head will allow. The rest of the team will be pretty easy to deliver, at least Husk and Jubilee. Corsair looks like he was an easy repaint with minimal new parts. Good for them to save some money. Hopefully they can pass than on.... Rogue looks great. Saved some money with the easy repaint+headsculpt. I like those Banshee headsculpts.
  9. My list has some fairly obscure characters, though I know a lot of people are being updated these days. I hope it is still in the spirit of the thread to go with an obscure costume on a popular character. There is no particular order on these, except if I had to choose one, I’d like the Wraith man.

  10. I didn’t do too bad on my suggestions, I think. Fang is coming next year and will probably be a simple retool. I don’t think anyone would be surprised if Ch’od is the BAF. Zero, Stryfe, and Vertigo as part of that awesome looking 5-pack makes me better than 50%.
  11. Man, I like those. Banshee's open collar looks good. I hope his wings are more like the OG Hasbro Banshee and less like Siryn's. Storm looks good. A lay-up figure. Wolverine is Wolverine. That version depicts him as the hairy fireplug he's supposed to be. I'm glad I can get my hands on Stryfe, and others can finally get Longshot. I really like that version of Pretty Boy. They did a great job on these.
  12. I’m super excited about the X-Men figures. I definitely want those yellow and blue costume figures. I really like that Wolverine. Has anyone noticed any differences between this Stryfe and the new one? I’m undecided on Multiple Man. He’s kind of surprising to me. Has he worn that costume recently? Does this work toward completing the Phoenix era stuff? Avalanche is a must. I’m glad these are in the classic lineup so no BAF.
  13. Nice pictures! I like the speeding Northstar. Keep 'em coming!
  14. Yeah, no prob. That's the spirit of the thread, I suppose. Nice box set.
  15. I don't know what any of these look like except Secret Wars Wasp and Triathlon. I always wanted him for the Post-Heroes Reborn era. He was a cool, regular-guy super hero.
  16. That one would probably do pretty well. Some neat Spider-Man alternate costumes. The Iron Spider design is really cool.
  17. I see. Thanks for the explanation. I think back to the X-Men line that featured Patch, Dazzler, Iceman, and X-Factor Cyclops. That one had to be mostly a filler wave, but it gave us really good versions of characters that I think were fairly popular.
  18. Thanks for your post, and for getting into the spirit of the thread. If I may interact with your post, is there a version of Spider-Man that has not yet been done that could be squeezed into your line? Obviously it’s not that our ideas ever would see fruition, but with a Spider-Man, I think it is more likely that yours could!
  19. Sure. I'm not hip to the lingo. Does filler carry a negative connotation?
  20. This thread is inspired by the recent Wolverine 5-pack that used easy repaints to give us new figures. What is the best line that could be released that would only require Hasbro to repaint an existing figure and maybe mold a new head sculpt? Vertigo - Could probably be made from any medium female body style. It should be an easy repaint and would require a headsculpt. Archangel - 90's blue and white costume with blue skin and long hair. Could be made from the previous Archangel figure. Rogue - First appearance green and white hooded costume repainted from the recent 2-pack version with better headsculpts. I'd want an accurate early version and a 90's Bachalo-esque version. Wolverine - Fang. Obligatory. Should be easy. I'm not sure how easy the bone and tooth belts would be, but they could be as simple as rubber bands like the infamous Jim Lee Cyclops. Havok - Mutant X or Dark Beast Minion. Repaint the new Havok with a new head sculpt. Would need belts or shoulder straps. Zero - Super cheap and easy repaint. Stryfe - The aftermarket shows high demand for this figure. I'm not sure if it needs any improvments. BAF Ch'od - In my limited research, it looks like he and Abomination are very similar. Could be as easy as a repaint, and packing in that little white bird thing. What do you all think? Would you buy this line? What is the easiest retool lineup you can come up with?
  21. That is awesome. Just really cool. That gun is neat. One of the better cartoon homage figures.
  22. That's great. A Deadpool variant worth the plastic. Good work!
  23. Oh, for sure. Age of Apocalypse Sabertooth for example. I am very happy when the Toybiz version is “good enough” to help me save money, though.
  24. I don’t get the hate for ball joints. I remember as a kid collecting the five inch figures, ball joints were the best. I will grant that not all of the Toybiz figures had perfectly proportioned shoulder or hip ball joints, but neither were they all terrible. Hasbro has definitely made some improvements, though. No hate for the current products.
