Marvel Universe Wave 21 Figures Found On eBay

Marvel Universe Wave 21 Figures Found On eBay

Jay Cochran - May 25, 2012
In an unusual turn of events, it would appear that Hasbro's 4th wave for 2012 or wave 21 has somehow already hit eBay thanks to seller misterberishaj23. What makes this a bit unusual is the fact that the last wave of Marvel Universe figures to hit retail so far was wave 17.

Wae 21 will include Professor X, Jubilee and Blastaar. We certainly don't encourage you to bid on these but did think you might like to see the first packaged shots for these figures, which you can check out below. As to when we will actually see these at general retail, likely it won't be till mid to late this year.

My point isn't that one costume should look one way and another should look another way--my point is that those looks are open to a large amount of interpretation. Different artists render the outfits differently, different colorists apply different criteria to how they color, and so the colors are often ambiguous. Storm's costume back then was black, but later artists took it brighter and brighter, and the cartoon went with white, probably to make it simpler. I think both looks are valid. Sinister is for me one of the more ambiguously-colored characters out there. I don't see a valid reason for him to be rereleased on the same mold in a brighter blue. I would much rather a single-carded slot go to some other character, like, oh, say, MAGNETO, who sorely needs an upgrade in his original costume. Or Moon Knight, or Vision. I would rather see resources go to those than to a lighter-blue Sinister. Here are characters that have been done in less-articulate, inferior bucks in the past, and they are characters that could hugely benefit from being rereleased in more definitive editions. In terms of a definitive Mr. Sinister, I say we got close enough, whereas I don't feel that way about most of the characters still relegated to the original Daredevil buck.

Lol, gentlemen, we can argue about costume colors and never reach an agreement. For years I thought Storm's Jim Lee costume was shiny black with white highlights, but over time realized most people were perceiving it as white. The cartoon solidified it as white IMO, but I've seen it colored silver & grey as well.

Anyway, I need the professor, but not so much Jubes or Blasstar. I still can't believe there are only 3 figs in a wave, but with all these box sets coming out, maybe that will be good for my wallet.

But is the Bishop on your Avatar meant to have blue hair?

'cus he totally has blue hair.

okay, I see your contrast here. LOL! but of course we use common sense and understand that Bishop's hair is naturally black and colorist may use different colors to highlight and add depth.

I've always been under the inpression Mr. Sinister's costume was a mid-night blue. It has even been evident in any X-men cartoon that his character has appeared in.

if you make an argurment that his (Sinister) hair is blue or black, then I would go either way with the logic of using blue to highlight black hair theory. but in recent X-books sinister has grown a goatee and that is jet black. so my theory is that: his original costume was midnight blue and his hair was jet-black with blue as a highlight.

Here's the early Mr. Sinister as I remember him:




...and here's a poster with him from the Messiah Complex era.


For comparison, here's some pics of Colossus from that time period.



I think Colossus' build and Mr. Sinister's build are meant to be very similar. Perhaps Sinister has smaller feet and more tapered legs, but I think that's just an effect Marc Silvestri used to do a lot on him, to make him look more "spooky" and less bound by the laws of physics.

I think the figure is too big and bulky to be an accurate representation of him. His body style is more lean.Similar to Frost Giant. Ireally hope Hasbro fixes him.IMO...the old 90s Toybiz one was more accurate.

I think you're proving my point for me--because the coloring techniques of the past were by and large less expressive than they are now, we can't really be sure what the proper coloring convention is supposed to be. Bishop's hair in Q's avatar is supposed to be black, but his bodysuit is the same color. If the coat, significantly darker than the bodysuit, is meant to be black, is the bodysuit actually blue? and does that make the hair, done in the same tone blue? Of course it doesn't. So, like you say, what color is the bodysuit?

Sinister's outfit has usually been the same color as his his hair blue? No. Is his suit blue? I say only maybe. To me the figure we already have is a very valid interpretation.

Here's the flip side... What color is his outfit? We reasonably assume that his hair ISN'T blue.. because Bishop's hair is traditionally black and we have no reason to believe he suddenly has a 2nd mutation granting him blue hair. We accept it as a coloring technique.

His jacket is clearly colored black. What color is his bodysuit? Is it blue or is it black?

Sinister has always been colored dark blue in every media format... his outfit isn't black.

I dont think its that much of a problem. The black looks fine IMO, and its a great figre of mr sinister. Probably our only one in this scale
