We'll get the Rob Liefeld Avengers Return Capt, with an eagle, instead of an "A". And we'll also get "nose helmet" Iron-Man. :wink:
How will you stand them without feet?
Flight stand?
You know, it’s nice of Hasbro, to make more amputee figures.

Hopefully an Astonishing Emma Frost is in our future. I know we just recently got her White Queen costume but her costume from the Whedon run really deserves a redo.

The previous two attempts are either atrocious or outdated and super expensive so I think she should be up for a new figure. I know she has more recent costumes that could go along with the other Krakoa era X-Men figures we got from Hasbro but I'm a sucker for more "classic looks".

My guess is they'll never get this look right. 2 half-assed attempts thus far and I'm not sure I trust em to get a 3rd right at this point.

If they do I expect the person responsible for the new sue to be involved. Because that sounds in line for the status quo with legends these days - create a near perfect version but leave a lil room for improvement so we can redo it later only to leave something out so we can redo it again later. Wash rinse repeat.

Which I'll say it again, I get the business model and that it only makes sense for them, but I do think this is the wrong time to be pulling this crap.

we've only really had 1 attempt... Annihilus wave (and diamond form) i wouldn't call the Puck wave emma the"astonishing" look at all personally.

we do have the head sculpt already though, so that's a plus, that came with walgreens emma as an alt head

That Emma seems easy enough given that most of the parts already exist. Maybe as part of an Astonishing 3 pack with Cyclops and Wolverine. The... "other" Love Triangle pack.

I think I've made it pretty clear that the Astonishing X-Men are my top priority. I want the group yesterday, but if we don't get them next year, 2024 is the 20th anniversary. What better time for a big, beautiful box set?

Astonishing Emma has been in the top three of my top 10 for as long as I can remember. It's one of her best looks.

Hit-Monkey Hulu trailer.

Looks fun to me. Among other Marvel U cameos in there I see Fat Cobra and Lady Bullseye. I'd love figures of both, and Fat Cobra - plus any other Immortal Weapons - would be a dream come true!

For some reason I thought we actually got Lady Bullseye already.

She was a figure Hasbro showed off waaay back in the day - 2009/2010? - that never got released. Along with that early draft of the Hood and Madrox, Bi-Beast, Lilandra, and others. I think maybe she was up for a fan choice vote type thing. It's weird that so many of those characters haven't been revisited.

A Fat Cobra body sculpt could also be re-tooled (new legs) pretty easily for a Mutant Liberation Front Sumo figure
