    But wasn't it only in the AoA that Morph and Changeling were identified as alternate versions of each other? Do you think the Animated series Morph was intended to be an update of Changeling?

    An example of a good retcon, I think.

    I includeda link which states that Morph is Changeling.

    They needed a sacrificial lamb and originally it was going to be Thunderbird but they released there might be unfortunate cognations if the killed off the Native American member.  So, they looked through the X-Books and came across Changeling, who was another X-Men who died (he was impersonating Xavier at the time.) So they decided to use him instead, but the couldn't call him Changeling because that was Garfield Logan's aka Beast Boy's name at the time.

    I really dig the packaging and the whole idea behind these, they look really nice for what they are, but I have no interest in picking any of these up (at least so far), they are just tweaked re-paints and I am exhausted with seeing all the Wolverines I already have (that I could do without), and I don't think Jubilee needs an replacement, fun, but also don't really care about the whole animated shading and so forth, cool way to get some classic figs that people really want out to the people who missed em.

    The packaging is nice, Hasbro seem to have a thing for VHS tape packaging with these, Draculus and those Power Rangers Zord figures

    What makes you say this is a WCA version of Wanda? I mean, the card art says West Coast Avengers but she wore this exact version on the East Coast team for years

    The packaging says so, so it must be true.

     

    Still I baffled on why they put these two on different Packaging style and not like the other retro characters.

    I think that the Allfather wave design is probably based on a piece Adi Granov did.  I think this was used as a variant cover to an issue of Uncanny Avengers maybe?  Not accurate to anything she ever wore as far as I know, but it's a gorgeous piece.  I think he put a little Elizabeth Olsen in there.

    If he did use Olsen as a reference, he did it 2 years before she appeared in the MCU.

    Don't know where your from mate but people in Europe and Asia have no problem getting any of the exclusive. In fact we can just go into our local Comic or toy stores and buy them, or if not just go onto an etailer. It's only the US and Canada that have exclusives.

    Indeed my local comic shop (Waterford Comics) gets in a large number of exclusives. The exclusivity of those figures is only in the country they are sold, other than that distributors can supply other countries with those exclsuives.

    The F#*$ are you talking about? Scarlet witch has always worn a pink suit under the red piece. I don't think her legs have ever been exposed before, besides late 90's maybe?

    Exactly the only times (that i can remember) Wanda has had her shoulders exposed in her classic outfit are after Heroes Reborn (which isn't the Allfather version as the boots are wrong) and one done by either Adam Hughes or Mark Brooks which is what the Allfather one is based on.

     

    She has never had her legs exposed will wearing that outfit unless it is a colouring error.

  7. Here are my thoughts on the reveals

    Baron Zemo: Finally a figure I have been wanting for ages gets made. A Must get

    Retro Wanda: While I am a big Wanda fan, I have no interest in buying a figure we should have gotten the first time, Also it is a West Coast version so another reason not to get it.

    Retro Vision: Hated the storyline and the figure looks awful. Easy pass

    Vulcan: On a new mold is good, shame I don't like the character. Hopefully if the rumours of Havok being in this wave are true, he might also be on the same mold.

    D'Spayre: Not a massive fan of the character, but it is a new villain, it will depend on the rest of the wave.

    Toy Biz Cap: Have a classic cap so pass.

    Toy Biz Iron Man: Have a classic Iron Man so pass.

    MCU Figures: No interest in any of these.

    XTAS Figures: I don't have that version of Logan, so maybe, the added photo is a nice touch. Jubilee is another case of the figure we should have gotten the first time around.

    Knull: Looks good, but I don't care about the character.

    Maggott reveal: Yes! Yes! Yes!

    Throw my vote in there as well. As an X-Men villain she's a must. The costume will be an issue I suppose, but we can also count on Hasbro "tidy it up", even if they decide to do it through Fan Channel or Etail exclusive. My guess is they would do the Scarlet Witch method in which they would just paint the parts that are supposed to be skin a another tone to simulate a leotard. Whatever, just do it. Maybe throw a few little toady demons in there cuz it'll most likely be $25. Of course, doing a related wave with S'ym as the BAF would be awesome, but I still firmly believe in Disney's ban (on toys, anyway) on demonic and occultic characters for its evil connotations (well isn't that the kettle calling the pot black?), no matter how much ML team tries to deny it.

    We just had a 13 inch flaming horned demon and a completely naked woman Marvel legends toy. I think the idea of we can't have demonic/occult or characters in revealing outfits figures is pretty much dead. Still a Pryor figure would be welcome.

    While the odd Spider-Villain or side character are always welcome in my collection, I'm having a hard time thinking of anything Spidey-wise I really NEED, at least to a point worthy of an Anniversary release. Still . . . 

    That Retro Mary Jane/Gwen was all kinds of disappointing, so I wouldn't mind if they took another shot at MJ. If they had to, just take the old TRU 2-pack version and shove it in some new packaging with a bunch of accessories. I'd buy it.

    We're also already getting updated versions of Spidey-2099 and Secret Wars Spidey, so maybe another pass at more of the 'Verse variants? I'd personally love to see a pimped up, tricked out Spider-Noir. A decent (articulated) Spider-Ham maybe? Or a repackaged Sp//dr BAF with an articulated Peni Parker would be severely cool . . . and play right into Hasbro's wheelhouse.

    Oh, and count me in for the TV Spideys. A Nick Hammond version is something i haven't even dared dream possible.

    Yeah same here, while I still have a lot of Spidey characters on my wish lists (The Legion of Losers), it is hard to think of what I want that would be worthy of an anniversary line. 

    Seeing some more of the Spiderverse characters would be great, especially as the likes of Noir were almost impossible to get over here.
