Cool shot! Such fun and distinctive character designs for this story. They make for striking action figures. Getting Nemesis/Holocaust would really make the whole set look great.

Holocaust would be awesome. The old BAF is going for crazy prices now. But the fact that they didn't make him the BAF for this wave makes me think that a third wave in the pipeline. That being said my third wave list would be:

1. Bishop
2. Havok
3. Storm
4. Quicksilver
5. Abyss
6. Gambit
7. Angel

BAF: Holocaust

Has Dorkside started shipping full sets yet? Or just cases?

Sorry, don’t know how to post pics here anymore, insta seems easiest, but just wanted to say I’m really enjoying Legion, regardless of his buffness…

I ordered a set on within an hour of them first going up, and there hasn't been any movement on my order. And at least in this thread it seems that nobody has reported a set shipping yet. :(

My free set just shipped, despite 2099 being a part of the order

My set hasn't shipped yet. Can't wait for my Legends drought to end.

Looks like my AoA wave 2 from Dorkside didn’t actually ship yet. The label was created on the 17th but no movement so far.

That pose is awesome, I'm stealing it, and does well to hide said buffiocity!

Anybody find any effects accessories they like using with Legion? Always disappointing when they include none whatsoever with such a powerful character. :?

This has been a great subset of figures. I have the complete waves, which is a rare thing for me. I'm happy with these two wave if this is how it closes out, but I will say that there's a few characters left for me that would be enough for a last wave.

- Gambit
- Nightcrawler
- Havok
- Mikhail Rasputin (his best look)
- Mr. Sinister
- Storm
- Bishop (with Shadow King in a bottle)

BAF has to be Holocaust

I'd also really like to get a Blink AOA head.

I just recently got AoA wave 1 and waiting on opening them until I get wave 2 and open them all at once. The wait is killing me.

Maybe one of those Tamashii Nations effects sets?

I got one for Negasonic Teenage Warhead, but haven't utilized it yet due to space.

Oh man, this second wave is dope.

Magneto is a mixed bag. His body is the same as other Magneto figures, so I appreciate the consistency. The helmeted head is too small, and would look more accurate with a blacked out face. Those braids really get in the way for both heads. The unmasked head looks better, but I like the idea of putting it on an all black body.

Rogue is great. Looks like she walked off the page. I love the oversized boots. The bangs are huge and almost cover her face too much. But everything else I really dig.

Sabretooth is simple but might be my favorite. Pairing him with Wild Child was the big pay off. He towers, but with WC on his back, it really creates a unique silhouette among the other standard figures.

Iceman is impressive. Feels like an entirely different figure than the Juggernaut wave version. I don’t love the head but besides that, he looks pretty imposing for such a lithe build. I really like him next to Sunfire.

Cyclops isn’t as awful as I thought he’d be, but he ain’t great either, mostly due to the big forehead exposure. His hair could have had more height or something too.

Shadowcat and Colossus are where it’s at. Gen NeXt was my fav book from the series, and these two, especially Colossus, look like a great match to the art. Even Kitty’s face isn’t that bad now that I have her in hand. A more furrowed brow would have worked better with her squinting eyes. I like that they included bracers with retracted and extended claws. These two might be my fav of the wave, but Rogue and Sabretooth are also so strong. Iceman is no slouch either. I think Magneto is a level up from Cyke, who is clearly the weakest link.

But displayed with the previous wave? Holeee Schmidt. I can’t believe we have all of these figures, and they just look incredible together. Never thought ML would go there.

Got a shipping notice for this wave from DS :)

Very excited to add these to my AOA display!
