Last week during New York Comic Con
we learned from Hasbro
that we are steps closer to being able to round out both the original 90's X-Force
teams in their next wave of X-Force themed Marvel Legends
, but would they allow fans to complete those teams in their entirety in the next wave? The answer is yes they could, but will they?
Here is what we know so far about what has already come and is coming for both teams.
The original Rob Liefeld X-Force
included members Cable, Cannonball, Boom Boom, Shatterstar, Warpath, Domino
. Out of those, we've already gotten Cable, Cannonball, Boom Boom, Domino, Shatterstar
, and it was just announced last week that Warpath
will be included in the next wave. That only leaves Feral
as the last original member to be made into a action figure.
, in the 90's when legendary writer Peter David
took over the book, the original X-Men members were replaced with a team that included Havoc, Polaris, Multiple Man, Forge, Wolfsbane
and Strong Guy
. This incarnation of the team was a US government sanctioned team, all of which featuring members wearing similar looking blue and yellow outfits.
Out of that team we've already gotten Multiple Man
. During San Diego Comic Con this past summer it was announced we would be getting a new figure 2-pack featuring both Havoc
in their 90's X-Factor outfits and Strong Guy
would be released as a Build-A-Figure
in the near future, confirming last week in fact for the next X-Force
wave. That only leaves Wolfsbane
in her X-Factor
outfit to be released.
So now we know from last week the next X-Force wave of figures to be released at the end of this year or early next year will include X-Force Warparth, X-Force Sunspot
and Deadpool in blue X-Men outfit
, with X-Factor Strong Guy
being the Build-A-Figure
for the wave. That leaves at least 3 more figures to be included in the wave, possibly four (For the sake of speculation in this article we are going to assume this will only be a 6 figure wave as opposed to 7.)
So could Hasbro give us both an X-Force Feral
and X-Factor Wolfsbane
in this next wave which would technically allow folks to round out those original team members for both teams, and if so what would the remaining figure be?
while technically not an original member of X-Force was a founding member of the New Mutants
, which is the team that eventually became X-Force
. He was there up until the end of New Mutants and soon returned to the ranks of X-Force during the Rob Liefeld era.
So in keeping with that, another member that would almost be icing on top the cake for X-Force fans is Siryn
. Like with Sunspot
, technically not an original X-Force member, the daughter of long-time X-Men member Banshee joined up with Cable and his team soon after issue #1 and was a long-time fixture to the team.
Another possibility is the character known as Rictor
. He and Boom Boom
started out hanging with the original X-Factor
team when it consisted of the original X-Men
, and then they made their way to the New Mutants
left the team right before they became X-Force
but soon returned.
In all honesty it's hard to believe Hasbro
would load up one wave with so many in-demanded characters, in fact it would probably be more likely if Hasbro found a way to give us 3 more Deadpool
figures, but we can always hope, right?
