I'm looking forward to Emma Frost and the Nightcrawler figures but I would like to see a Sleepwalker in the near future!!

thefurnace116 - 2019-06-20 @ 2:57 am

I want them all! Lol

to each his own, but honestly between vintage wave wolverine, tiger stripe wolverine, and old man logan I'm pretty much set for Logan figs, especially with Weapon X coming in the Caliban wave and presumably an x-force wolverine coming at some point. In contrast, this is the 1st classic Hulk figure that Hasbro has made so naturally people are going to view him as the highlight of the set. Nothing wrong with FA Wolverine but i think a lot of people will be looking to sell him after they buy the 2-pack ( I know i will)

Like I Just said. To me I want them all. Except for Old man Logan that I don't have that much attachment. I want that too, but he is not on the top of my list.

I *like* Wolverine, but he's not my favorite character. And I do already have two versions of the character (vintage wave brown suit and the new yellow one from the Apocalypse BAF wave). I don't need another one, and no, I don't like the mask look from his first appearance, but I will happily buy the 2-pack anyway.

*Edit: I might get the riderseries Logan at some point if I need another Wolverine.

If it was up to me I would have all of them. Including Rider Series, The Madripoor just revealed and the Weapon X.

The big drawn is that Hulk. To everyone. There is no doubt about that, but to me the Wolverine is a huge plus.

Wow! 2019 looks like Im going to be just as light in the wallet as 2018! Lol! The only thing Im worried about is that Scorpion looks a little scawny? I feel as though the Sabretooth from last years Xmen wave could have been a bit beefier. Just a thought!

Velocibaker - 2019-02-24 @ 5:00 am

Obviously there's a ton I'm pumped for, Nightcrawler is a big one.

But the most important to me is probably Alex Ross Iron Man. I've been longing for a (good) classic Iron Man since I started collecting. Decades ago, my dad got the Toy Biz Iron Man (the one with the Doom comic book), it was my first real action figure and I absolutely loved it. It was the reason I ever knew who Iron Man was, and I played with that thing to death lol. Years later I re-discovered Legends by looking that figure up. So have this thing in my adult collection will bring it all full circle.

Either classic leg strap Herc or 80s H-harness Herc were the top 2 requests from us Herc fans. Hasbro better have a figure of those 2 much demanded versions in the next yr or so.!

I love Hercules, too, and I'll wait until one of these two versions (first choice: leg straps)is released before buying him. Also, there are rumors that Hercules will be in THE ETERNALS movie coming out in 2020, so his popularity might be on the rise, which would likely increase the chance of getting a more classic version of the hero.

I came to terns with Juggernaut going from 6'10 to 8-9ft, but Thor is 6'6, in the comics, how can they possibly continue to fudge up the scale on him & make him outta scale hgt wise with his fellow Avenger ML figs! Cap is 6's, Thor should only be half a head tall, if that, when posed standing straight up next to comic Cap not a full head+ or taller! Gonna have to do some major customizing surgery on that figure to get it to scale. I think the Herc fig is alright scale wise, just the damn selection of costume to do him in that stinks! I don't recall a huge outcry for "manbun" wearing Herc at all from the Hercules fanbase. Either classic leg strap Herc or 80s H-harness Herc were the top 2 requests from us Herc fans. Hasbro better have a figure of those 2 much demanded versions in the next yr or so.!

I'd say a classic Hercules might be a possibility for one of next year's Vintage waves but I don't think he ever made it into Toy Biz's 5 inch line. Then again,neither did Outback Dazzler. If we're breaking the rules now then this is your cue, Hasbro.I just can't understand why they can make this happen in 3.75 scale but given a full 6" scale to work with they just can't manage to work it out.

To be fair, Juggernaut in his Classic Costume is 6'10. He HAS officially grown (after a depowering/repowering) to 9'5. The problem with the BAF is it's based on the classic version. Now admittedly, Marvel has given Cain a (kind of) classic looking costume, but the figure isn't based off that (and of course the BiB loved it for that reason).

Hi, I'm apparently a member of the BiB posse. The reason I loved Juggs being that big is because I met him that size, or that's how imposing I remember him. It's not my favorite look for the character, but at least size-wise it's appropriate. Again, from memory, not looking at officially listed size or an specific era/costume.

I think what Hasbro (and I assume, toy companies in general) tries to do is appeal to the largest possible audience. I think their attempt is to cater the classics with the look and the BiBs, as you call us, with the size. It's never gonna make all of us happy.

I dislike the way this works because it affects the way waves are assembled too. I mostly collect MCU figures, and most of the X-Men (it's what my budget allows, and lately it's getting cut), so I dislike having to buy classic or comic figures to build an MCU BaF, and I'm sure that happens the other way around, having to buy an MCU figure to build a comic BaF.

Still, that's the way it has to be to keep the toyline running. I hope you get an appropriate sized Thor and Juggernaut soon.
