"Red Wolf would just look so cool as a figure! I gotta add a few must have Avengers from my personal list. Starfox doesn't get mentioned enough...."

Oh I'm pretty sure your Starfox is coming sooner rather than later. In fact while he's not on any list for me, I'd expect to see him, in both comic classic and MCU form, long, long before they ever do Red Wolf.

Welp, at least the art will be good.

Red Wolf would just look so cool as a figure! I gotta add a few must have Avengers from my personal list. Starfox doesn't get mentioned enough. Stingray, surprised he hasn't been released between Avengers and Deadpool waves. And my "never gonna get him" Dr Druid! Although Megan was on that same "never" list too, so who knows. Also a Sersi in green, pretty sure that two pack will be in the rolled sleeves jacket in red look.

As far as that Ice Giant, the MU one is awesome. I wish I had gotten the Bill Foster from that set.

And I bought the frost giants from the old Marvel Universe line because I felt that would be the only way we ever get them - forget about ever getting scale accurate ones for a six-inch line.

Yeah, I've got that MU Frost Giant also and wish I'd gotten at least one more of them, but I did recently pick up some decent friend stand-ins for my lone Hasbro Frost Giant.... McFarlane did a couple of different deluxe Ice Giant figures (a regular and a bloody variant) for their Witcher line that work as nice additional background Frost Giants. I picked up one of each for less than $50 combined and am pretty happy with them. They're only about 11" tall, so just a little shorter than that Hasbro one. I've also got the McFarlane Frost King BAF, but it's only 9" tall and just those couple of inches difference are enough to take it off the table as a viable alternative. I keep hoping that Hasbro will make a new Frost Giant using the mold they used for Surtur, but with a couple of alternate heads.

"... We need more of these characters in Marvel Legends figure form! Finally glad to be getting Safari Jacket Wonder Man! Need updated Yellowjacket! Need Moondragon, Mantis, Swordsman, 1st Appearance Ms. Marvel, Red Wolf, etc..."

I've been wanting Red Wolf now for years. Will he get done soon, I sadly doubt it, but one thing that the toy makers have going for them now that they didn't have before, is the skill to make animals like wolves- there's Timber from GI Joe andGuenhwyvar from the Dungeons & Dragons set. So, yeah, Red Wolf can now have Lobo if they chose to.

That's great cover and would make for an amazing poster, makes me realize how much I miss that era of Avengers.

I'm expecting that the MCU version from the Thor Ragnarok 2-pack will be the only one we get for a while, but I'd love to see an all comic based wave with him, Kurse, Heimdall, Balder, Fandral, Hogun and Volstagg. Volstagg would likely have to be the BAF, and they'd of course have to give us some version of Thor in a wave like that. Destroyer could be another BAF possibility.

Yeah, you and me both would love that box set or wave. But Hasbro I don't feel has confidence in the Thor characters enough to release an all comic set/wave to us. It's been twenty years and we've only gotten two Thor waves, both of which were centered around the last two movies and featured mostly MCU based character versions. And Thor's extensive rogue's gallery has been sold to us piece meal in general waves, Avengers waves, Fantastic Four waves, individual fan channel exclusives and oh yes, a SDCC box set some years back. And I bought the frost giants from the old Marvel Universe line because I felt that would be the only way we ever get them - forget about ever getting scale accurate ones for a six-inch line. So, while I continue to hope as you do, time has proven to me that is highly unlikely. But hey, keep dreaming like me.

Which reminds me yet again of Thor characters we still need. And only one was also a classic Avengers villain too. Where is our Executioner?!

Those were great days and stories. And there they are, most of the last Avengers we are still waiting for Hasbro to make - Moondragon, Swordsman, Mantis, Rick Jones and Jarvis.

Aye, I'll raise my Mead cup to that!
