I wouldn't count on multiple alternate arms, I think MSWord said that they're looking into giving him one. That's a 30 usd figure after all and the most recent Hulk and Titanium Man only came with an extra head and pair of hands.

Concept art doesn't really have me excited. I'll save my excitement for a prototype. My ideal would be for a sculpt similar to or based on the TB BAF sculpt, which was just about the perfect Apocalypse figure, despite its size.

It's been years since it was mentioned, but the marvel select line can't do BaFs

Wish the chest was a tad bit wider but I'm a happy guy anyhow
This is just a concept, we'll see how the digital sculpt shakes out.
Good to hear, hopefully More Bart Sears by the end. Also hips like the recent Hulk would be a huge plus

THAT'S the Apocalypse that I'd love to see the final prototype more closely resemble.

Thanks for posting this picture. I'm definitely saving it because, if I remember correctly, the Apocalypse II from ToyBiz's original X-MEN series was inspired by Bart Sear's drawings.

While the preview of the Select version looks very nice, the closer it gets to the above illustration, the better.

With the addition of Apocalypse, you could have yourself a nice Select sub-set of X-MEN villains including Magneto, Sabretooth, and Juggernaut.

They'd all look fantastic menacingly posed together and would more closely look like the Jim Lee villains group shot at the end of X-MEN # 1 from 1991.

I like skinny FA Apocalypse, but I'm flexible.

Looks very cool. Now please show me the figure itself.

Not the design I was hoping for, but this does look pretty good. Could make a good companion piece for my Marvel Legends collection. I just hope he'll come with a more neutral facial expression option.

Same. That pencil sketch above is definitely not what I'm hoping this figure turns out to be. The closer to the old Toy Biz BAF mixed with 80s-mid 90s comics and cartoon, the better.

So excited by the possibilities of this release. A large classic inspired Apocalypse is one of my most desired figures.

I’d personally prefer an OG X-Factor version. I know…the ML/MS debate…but Hasbro will almost assuredly do an Apocalypse in the animated line. FA Apocalypse gets no love.
Thirded. That sketch is very, very not my preferred look. I'm fine with my ML version, but something that looks more like his X-Factor appearances would be a welcome addition to my collection.

I'm excited by the renders/early designs of Apocalypse. Considering the fact that MS has been producing absolute bangers lately, I'm on board for at least two.
