I've cut back on hasbro legends because among other things they don't don't seem to want to go deeper into the Marvel universe other than the staples listed above. A 70's comic wave for example, would be incredible. But maybe for this Guardians wave we'll finally get the original crew, perhaps Ant-Man will yield Yellowjacket. Maybe X-Men will produce at least half of the Starjammers team.
Well, who knows. Whatever they come up with, they need to tighten up the delivery date 'cause this year/2 year out thing is played out.

That makes a lot of sense. They did a pretty good looking all white Vision recently and I've been assuming we'd get the same figure in classic colors at some point in the not too distant future.
No one's a bigger Vision fan than I am, but thus far they've never done him correctly, and the all-white version was no exception. I do hope they'll do him justice one day. In the meantime, Marvel Select has been the only version that's nailed him, so....

A-Bomb (seems like that would be a BaF)
Belle has me at aloss. I'm thinking female. Maybe a Scarlett Witch
Copperhead (seems like a stretch)
Probably an Iron Man
Cyclops seems logicalbut that's X-Men. I'm thinking a Vision
I always enjoy guessing at the possible characters, it always gives me some hope we will get C & D listers as well as some new villains as well.
Molecule - sure hope it is Molecule Man, I've wanted Owen Reece for decades now. He may be a Fantastic Four Villian, but at this point the Avengers and everyone else has fought him.
Bomb - If this was ten years ago, I would say A-Bomb was it. But Rick hasn't been that character in a long time. I like the thinking that it could be Nitro. One of the two great villains Starlin gave us during his short but amazing run on Captain Marvel.
Belle - well, if this is in fact an X-men wave, I would say Belladonna, Gambits ex-wife. Otherwise, I am scratching my head.
Won - Wonder Man seems like the obvious choice, but I am in the much smaller camp of wanting his first appearance outfit, not the safari jacket one... which is what we will probably get.
Cop - Maybe a character that is or was a policeman/woman. I'll have to think about this one some more. Although they have slowly been feeding us Serpent Society members for a number of years now, so I wouldn't rule Copperhead out completely.
Antonio - Could be a Stark IM suit. But I'm going to go a little further afield and say maybe it's a character from San Antonio, one of The Rangers, Texas Twister perhaps?
Optics - I'm also going out there on this one too. A character that is optically enhanced would be my guess and I'll say Basilisk. Yeah, very obscure, but that's the sort of figs I keep hoping for. We will see.
Looking at the 20th anniversary rumor, I know pretty much everyone is expecting furry Beast again, myself included, but would be rad if they blindsided us with Hank in one of his suits.

I hold out no hope for such a thing although it would be great. These guys seem fixated on going over old territory instead of branching out. And the X-Men box was a thrown together, cheap shambles of a set. I would love to think they've spent all the time since that release to actually do Angel's wings correctly, but its doubtful. But yeah, they need a re-do, and hasbro needs to get Marinna and Rachel Phoenix done as well.
That Marvel Monsters box set needs to get done too....by Halloween....
Yes, the Marvel Monsters are overdue!
