  1. RIP to the Longshot thread... As to what I want to see from Hasbro, I'd like to finally get some redos of the remaining ToyBiz Young Avengers. C'mon!
  2. I see variations of this question get asked a lot with a bunch of characters, and the simple answer is: There are dozens, if not hundreds of characters at Longshot's general level of notoriety, and only so many slots per character per year. So you could easily ask this about a lot of characters (look how long people were asking for Quasar until recently?) As for the question of why a character like Wolverine, Magneto, Storm or Iron Man has been made multiple times, well the answer there is because they're all more popular than Longshot. I'm sure we'll get him eventually. But just about everyone in the fandom has their personal "Why hasn't they been made yet?!" picks that they think are obvious, myself included.
  3. Agreed. When I saw the Hatut Zeraze listing my immediate hope was the comic BP will be the Texeira design from Marvel Knights.
  4. Also surprised not mentioned but JT also says there's a Disney+ wave coming up with Moon Knight, Ms. Marvel and the previously revealed Clint Barton and Kate Bishop, as well as that Helm, another and Necro from the Thor: Love and Thunder UPCs previously available are Thor, Jane Foster and Gorr the God Butcher.
  5. I mean, Ned was a major character in three highly successful movies. I'm generally not fond of civilian figures myself (with a few exceptions) so will be passing, but that's not a particularly shocking choice given it'll likely be in a 2-pack.
  6. And that's fine. That's why I said JT corroborated the Disney+ listings and a few other things in the leak (including there being some rereleases from the first Black Panther film).
  7. I mean, you're using JT as a source here, and they're the one who's saying the UPC listing for those figures are indeed four Disney+ ones, so I'm gonna go with him on this. The timeline also fits with Moon Knight dropping in March.
  8. Do we know for sure that is the case? He lists two Avengers waves, one for the Spring and one for much later in the year. The one in Spring is the one he claims is the Disney+ wave, which now another poster, JT Prime, is claiming to be apt based on the UPC listings: UBE Clover 1 = Ms Marvel UBE Arrow 3 = Kate Bishop UBE Bow 2 = Hawkeye UBE Mumbai 5 = Moonknight
  9. Rektangular claims to have a rundown for this year's waves, + the third Disney+ wave UPCs. In addition to obvious stuff like a Wakanda Forever wave there's another Iron Man wave supposedly in the works.
  10. Your comment here inspired me to take a look at all the BAF and Retro waves we got in 2021 and the confirmed waves for 2022..., and I was surprised to see that with two exceptions, they all either had at max, two female characters in them. Stilt-Man: Spider-Gwen Mr. Hyde: Xialing Captain America's wings: Scarlet Witch Xemnu: Lady Deathstrike Usrsa Major: Ironheart and Darkstar AOA Colossus: Rogue and Shadowcat Retro FF: Invisible Woman Gilgamesh: Sersi and Sprite Armadillo: Shriek Rintrah: Miss America Bonebreaker: Siryn The two aforementioned exceptions were the Tri-Sentinel (Moira, Jean and Omega Sentinel) and Uatu (Captain Carter, Sylvie and Nebula) waves. This year's Retro Spidey wave had zero. I wonder if that's practice or just an odd coincidence. So either way, I would say the lack of female villains can be traced back to the relatively small percentage of the wave female characters get to take up in any given wave, with heroines usually taking precedence in those slots. Like, I can see how if you're doing an X-Men wave with just one woman, a heroine like Siryn or Wolfsbane would seem a more attractive pull than someone like Destiny or Spiral, but it's still unfortunate.
  11. There was an Amazon listing this year for a deluxe Doc Ock. I wonder if that'll be how they plan to release him. Also I hope Electro has an extra head with the energy mask!
  12. 1. Armor Can I just write Armor ten times? No? Fine. 2. Lockjaw 3. Kingpin (MCU) 4. Atlas 5. Mephisto 6. Mangog 7. Sentinel (Marvel vs. Capcom) 8. Black Goliath 9. Giant-Man (Raz Malhotra) 10. Mondo
