Secret Wars Anniversary
2024 is the 40th anniversary of Secret Wars - both the maxi-series and the Mattel toy line.
Do you think Hasbro will celebrate this as one of their anniversary offerings?
If so, what do you speculate the products will be? Retro wave? BAF wave? 2-packs? Multi-packs? Single card recreations of the Mattel packaging?
At the very least, I hope we get:
Beyonder - armor and/or jumpsuit
Falcon update - I think we'll get classic Falcon, but as a tie-in to the new Cap movie
I'd love retro-carded versions of the above characters. Even though I open and discard the packaging, I just love seeing that type of packaging on store shelves.
What about a Thundersword figure?
At the very least, I can see them doing symbiote Spidey on that card. Maybe on the AF buck with a blue wash.
Agreed with the exact list Beamish posted, those need to be made at the bare minimum to complete the hero and villain rosters.
I hope so. I want them all. Loved Secret Wars! Bring them Hasbro!
Yeah, Secret Wars is one of themes I'm going for in my collection, so I'm down for everything they give us. Hoping for them to redo the Wrecking Crew and Absorbing Man.
I'm desperate for that Rogue or one like it.
I still need to find a classic Lizard for me to have the right assortment of characters. I missed out on him and his aftermarket prices are...unkind.
I really hope they have something planned/in the works.
Would be a huge missed opportunity if not...
I need an '80s She-Hulk in the worst way. Would go for one with the costume she wore in this miniseries, but am really dying for a F4 uniform to match the retro card F4. With the exception of her first appearance figure in the Foom wave, I've enjoyed just about every iteration of She-Hulk in ML. They've all wound up becoming favorite figures of the wave for me.
Loved the Secret Wars! Top picks for me are the brand new characters—Titania and Volcana and Beyonder.
Hello, everyone, it's stuartgreen here, formerly StuartGreen83. I re-created my account and it feels good to be back. I love and agree with everyone's Secret Wars wants and wish-lists. I do hope we'll get some of the original eight characters from the old Mattel toyline (Captain America, Doctor Doom, Doctor Octopus, Iron Man, Kang, Magneto, Spider-Man and Wolverine, respectively). Brown-and-tan costume Wolverine is overdue, a new Captain America with an alternate broken shield would be cool, and it'd be a great way to get a classic Doc Ock with the new bendable wire tentacles. That said, I also hope we'll see The Incredible Hulk, The Mighty Thor, She-Hulk, Cyclops, Rogue, Nightcrawler, Colossus, any of the Wrecking Crew, the Lizard, Volcana, the Absorbing Man, Titania, the Enchantress and Klaw as single releases or sold as part of a two-pack set. I doubt Hasbro would skip "Secret Wars" stuff next year for the 40th anniversary. The questions I have are, which characters will make the cut, will we see them not as exclusives to Fan Channel, Pulse and/or a select store, and will we see them as two-packs, as single figures, or both?
The Dr. Doom/Capt. Marvel 2-pack is basically a Secret Wars release. I don't think it was ever said to be such, but I'm hoping it's the first of many more. It might be most likely way we'd ever get leg-warmer She-Hulk and vaguely first-appearance Rogue. If it also gets me a more reasonably-sized Absorbing Man (with a not-shitty ball and chain), then all the better.
On the other hand, it's that Wasp costume that keeps me from saying I want Secret Wars era costumes for everybody. Yikes.
Anybody else hating this new forum? The blinking ads drive me crazy anything I can do, besides quit?
