    I don't know where people keep getting the idea that Deadpool is some sort of especially dark or R-rated character. For the vast majority of the character's history, that has not been the case. There was a single Deadpool series for the Marvel MAX line, but it only ever ran for 12 issues. The majority of Deadpool's published history as a character has been very strictly in the PG-13 realm at worst. This is a character, mind you, who Marvel has actively marketed at an all-ages audience and who was in a friggin' Lego set not too long ago.

    That's not to say an R-rating doesn't bring with it a lot of freedom and interesting creative avenues. Part of the appeal of the Deadpool films is that they're different from the majority of Disney's Marvel flicks. But to pretend that Deadpool has always been a hard-R character and that he could not possibly work in a PG-13 movie is ahistorical.

    Look at Wolverine in  X-Men TAS, he wasn't allowed to gut anyone, except robots but his character was still back on.

    The Omega Red body is great. Has the size, proportions, extra articulation, and just looks great. The bucky cap is a good mold, but I would like to see others with butterfly joints. We need better bodies for females. Rogue, X-23, their legs can't move up at all. There is so much restriction in the legs it sucks.

    Yeah, it is annoying that the ladies can't do the same poses as the lads.

    Not to point out the obvious, but you guys do understand the Cottonmouth from Serpent Society and the one from the Power Man and Iron Fist corner of the Marvel Universe are two totally different people that have absolutely no correlation to each other after the names, don't you? The figure that came out on the Avengers wave is not in any way associated to the Luke Cage Netflix series. Do Hasbrouck take advantage of a very small possibility of name recognition with the character? Maybe, but I tend to think he was a very easy figure to make and another Serpent Society figure as always an easy filler.

    I know that, that was what I was pointing out.

     

    Still Cottonmouth was a strange choice, given there were more famous members  they could have chosen first and given then had to sculpt a new head means it wasn't that easy. Like I said given he also appeared in LEGO Avengers, means someone in the licencing department must have been a fan.

    I realize that. What I'm saying is, being in a show or movie increases the chance of getting comic OR movie figures. Yes, we got a Netflix wave, but we've also gotten no less than four different versions of comic Daredevil, a Cottonmouth, a '90s Cable, an improved Thanos, etc. That's not coincidence. These comic figures happened because the characters were in mainstream productions.

    Of course it increases the chances, but chances are if they do a Disney+ wave, it will more than likely be MCU versions. While a standard Avengers mave will have a better chance of being a comic version.

     

    Also Cottonmouth came out a whole year before the Luke Cage series, so he doesn't count, the other do.

    I miss the days of just simple 1 shot or 2 parters that simply just involved the X-Men vs insert X-villain/villians robbing a bank or pulling a jewelry heist. Now they all have to be yr long BS crossover storylines along with bad art on most books, bad PC/ SJW storylines & being overpriced. Big reasons I quit collecting a few yrs back. Best X-Men story arc IMO was just 2 parts long, little something called "DOFP" Had repercussions that are still felt this day in the X-universe.

    It doesn't help that most of the current stories are very samey

    I always forget how ugly most of Wonder Man's costumes throughout history have been. Yipes. I can see why ToyBiz and Hasbro stuck to his West Coast look.

    And given how slow they've been with getting out figures for the existing TV shows, I wouldn't even count on that.

    I wish they would do a new version of his energy form

    Like I said above, the Netflix shows got a wave, so it is possible that a Disney+ wave could happen

    I agree he should be in an Avengers line (or a Falcon and Winter soldier tv wave or a Captain America 4 wave but that is if it happens). 

    I think people misunderstand that the Vintage line is for just for Classic figure and not a attempt just to resell previous figure on pretty cards. So I agree with you on that. 

    If the do a Disney+ wave they would be based on their MCU versions. So a standard avengers wave would be the best chance,

     I absolutely love this idea. And I’m with you that some variation in the uniforms is good. If you want them all identical then just go for that particular style. You can always find people selling them as singles on eBay. But as far as the Hasbro releases I like the variation. 

    I like the variation as one is generally the standard goon and the other is more the elite solider.

    Uuuuumm, yeah I'm pretty sure different branches of the military services have different gear and attire, even within the same branch of military. Army infantry dress and are equipped differently than the Army Rangers, Army Paratroopers use different gear as well, National Guard dress differently than the standard army attire, communication specialist carry different gear than snipers. Higher ranking officers dress differently than their troops, especially on base. True, your not gonna see a desert camo next to jungle camo in the field, but there are different specified looks for different specialties in the field. That's a really inaccurate argument and identical 2 packs are just never gonna happen. The closest thing that'll ever happen in that regard would most likely be something like the Hand Ninja & SHIELD agent 2 pack they did back during the Dark Days of ML. What would be a really good idea is if Hasbro did a whole online order option through HTS where they could open a pre-order option and then produce the products to be shipped out once a certain number of orders have been secured. Kinda like what they're proposing with the HasLab projects. This is the way Super7 has been doing MOTUC and it seems to be working for them, and they have a lot fewer resources than Big Daddy Hasbro. Additionally, Hasbro could save on packaging by not having to box them to be displayed and sold on store floors. They can just send one info sheet and pack however many figures were ordered with only bubble wrap and packing peanuts.

    My only problem would be HTS, since the don't ship internationally
