almost upon us I wanted to put out my Top 10 wish list of 6" Marvel Legends comic book based
figures I hope Hasbro
will release in the coming year. Now in all honesty I could easily come up with more than 10 figures, but these are the 10 I want to see the most for various reasons. Feel free to share your own Top 10 list in the the COMMENTS SECTION
10) Iron Man Silver Centurion
This has always been one of my favorite Iron Man armors. This was one of the most different looking armors featured in the comics because Stark moved away from the traditional red and gold look, and went with silver and gold. This is also the armor worn during much of the time Iron Man was part of the West Coast Avengers, which was one of my favorite Marvel titles of the time. Toy Biz did a version of the armor back in the day which remains a strong figure, but I would love to see Hasbro take a stab at it with a more modern looking sculpt.
09) Modern Gold Arm Thor
Hasbro recently gave us an awesome classic Thor figure, and now I would love them to give us a modern version of the character for the Marvel Legends line. Who knows if Thor will still be sporting this look in the comics by the time Hasbro gets around to releasing one, but I like this look. Not just because it's modern, but I think a metallic gold arm would look good in figure form.
08) Steve Rogers Captain America
If you know me at all then you know I am a huge Captain America fan. While I wasn't a huge fan of the whole "Hail Hydra" storyline this costume helped kick off, I always liked the design of it. Hasbro did give us a 4" Marvel Universe version of this Cap, but I felt it was a missed opportunity we did not get a 6" version. Hopefully this year Hasbro can rectify that mistake.
07) X-Force Feral
Being this is the final character we need to round out Rob Liefeld's original X-Force team in 6" Marvel Legends form, I am sure this figure is a no-brainier for Hasbro. The question in my mind is more about when, than if they will release it. Hopefully the when will be sometime in 2020.
06) X-Factor Wolfsbane
Everything about what I said for Feral above can be applied to this figure as well, just switch out X-Force for X-Factor.
05) War Machine
Hasbro has given us plenty of movie based War Machine figures in recent years, but we really haven't gotten a good comic book based War Machine since Toy Biz did it back in the day. That figure was another solid figure and probably best known for having action figure designer David Vonner's face imposed on it. War Machine continues to be a predominate character in the comics including being featured in the upcoming Force Works 2020 series, so now seems like a perfect time for this character to get an updated figure from Hasbro.
I don't really care if we get this character in her more classic look or a more modern version. Either way its far past time for this Amazin Spider-Man friend and New Warrior to get the 6" Marvel Legends treatment.
For the next original ThunderBolts member to get the 6" Marvel Legends treatment, I hope its the armored hero known as Mach-V. We already got the characters original Beetle costume in figure form, so hopefully this version won't be far behind.
02) Modern Falcon
Falcon is another character Hasbro has given us multiple movie versions of, but has failed to give us any kind of good comic book version. Toy Biz did a classic version of the character which some might prefer seeing released again under Hasbro, but for me I would rather see the character with a more modern look and removable wings. Hasbro don't forget the wings like you did with the Falcon Cap version you did a few years ago.
01) Modern USAgent
If there is any character out there in the Marvel Universe that I like better than Captain America, it would be USAgent. Hasbro did a somewhat scrawny version several years ago with his classic uniform. Now with the character appearing in both the upcoming Falcon and the Winter Soldier Disney+ series and being featured in the before mentioned Force Works 2020 series, I think its high time to get an updated figure of Johnny Walker on a bigger buck and preferably in his more modern looking uniform.
