I'm hoping we do see the remaining core members of AF sprinkled in future DP/X-Men waves. Either a DP or X-men wave could have classic Box as the BAF. And sorry, Hasbro needs to do a new Puck, their 1st version is too tiny & lacks a mid torso articulation. Eugene is a dwarf not a midget.

I a little late on this topic, but yeah that was pretty clear that we would see some Canadian characters and this will probably become a theme from now on.
The Alpha Flight characters will mostly be split into new Deadpool themed wavesthat will come now at least once a year. The question is how can they make new Deadpools if mostly all of them have already been released?
The other option is the AF characters being put into X-Men themed waves. To me, this last option is a most likely one.
It didn't take Destiny's pre-cognitive powers to see this one coming ('Called it' indeed...!) as an AF box has been rumoured since 2008. But.....YAY!!
Hope it happens, and the more the better, especially as over half the core 1980's team is more or less done: Northstar & Aurora got as far as cancelled prototypes; a (new) Guardian & Vindicatorare just about the easiest redecoes in the world; Puck is done and could be repacked and Sasquatch could get a white redeco to cover his/her Wanda days. Snowbird and Shaman would require thought (but are totally needed), and in fanboy dreamworld Marina, Wildchild, Talisman, Box (v1) and Diamond Lil would be awesome but never gonna happen.
Got to say: Toy Biz have been making me VERY happy with their comic-based lines (no interest in MCU/Netflix)...we've got a whole bunch of lovelyX-Men & related that Ithought we'd never get (Dazzler, Sauron, Madrox, Magik, Bishop, two excellent X-23's) and the likes of Mystique, Blink (???) Gambit (and almost certainly Warpath, AOA Morph & Emma Frost) upcoming. Alpha Flight too? Yes please.
I knew it, I called it. I'm thinking maybe a box set etailer exclusive withSasquatch reissue, Snowbird, Guardian, Shaman and Puck reissue and Possibly a Northstar & Aurora two pack Walmart or Target exclusive.
Either that or they'll do several 2 packs similar to the way it was done back in the Toybiz 5" scale days. Either way it's Win/Win for us. There goes all the cash I was planning on saving by completely bypassing the 2nd Black Panther wave.
Of course, expect to see the Wolverine for next year's X-Men wave. I'm betting on FA Wolvie. Also, I wouldn't be too surprised, or upset if Wendigo showed up in some fashion. Maybe even with swap parts for White (Snowbird) Sasquatch.
I will wait with baited breath.
Alpha Flight is long overdue and hopefully we'll be able to complete the whole team. I would guess that another Wolverine figure it's on the way but I'm still interested to see if Hasbro can still surprise us.
I would definitely guess it will be Alpha Flight, but they still have two more Wolverines to re-do - Weapon X Wolverine, and Age of Apocalypse Wolverine, and then they can stop making Wolverines...unless they start doing featured artist versions - I would KILL for a Madureira Wolverine!

We need Box, after seeing the Kree Sentry I would love to see Box done as a Marvel Legends.
"Canadian goodness." So it's either Squirrel Girl, Alpha Flight or a new Wolverine.

Well I could see Guardian getting a remake or Puck getting a rerelease but other then that only the twins seem likely.
alpha flight has good characters remember that after civil war 1 until beta Ray Bill was part of the team. I also hope for figures of the most traditional formation ... guardian snowbird marrina etc
